A not so regular feature in which I pick a book and then pick out things I think the character/s themselves would own/use or just really like. All links go to etsy/the store's website. This week the featured book is...
His Dark Materials by Philip Pullman.
Focusing on Lyra.
I can see this sitting on Lyra's bed, where she would clutch it and dream of distant places. Places where she would certainly go.
Perhaps a gift from Serafina, perhaps from the Costa's, perhaps a pretty prize taken from Mrs. Coulter. I think Lyra would like the sense of mystery- and perhaps potential danger- that surrounds a necklace like this.
I imagine Lyra traveling lots, to cold places- traveling to see Iorek and sailing with the Costa's, heading her own way. Still, she would most certainly need lots of warm wear and this scarf... I can perfectly picture her in it.
What a memory this beautiful stamp would be- the potential for more memories, too. A compass can lead you anywhere!
Lyra would need a good, sturdy bag. It took me a while to find something I can envisage her using, but this is perfect. Sturdy, a nice dark colour, plenty of room. Lovely.
I can imagine her being very creative, and her memories being so strong and things... important things in her life being recorded through art, writing. I think this would be a very Lyra-esq piece, especially the darkness and the stars.
A place for Lyra to keep her most precious things, whether it be a flower, coin, feather. And it's unsuspecting when you see it closed, below.
