Eliza

Cut to hand in jar of wax, scoops out some, mantlepiece, desk with a bunch of other things. Mortar and pestel by the wax, hands mix in wax with raspberry dye. There's face-paint and bones and trinkets of metal, thread, thumbtacks. She dips a brush in the waxy mixture and starts to paint. All the while- closeups, along eyes, lips, face. She's got other things, dead things, room shows signs of taxidermy. She puts on a hat made of a skinned fox.
She stares plainly into mirror, looking carefully for aesthetic. She paints rings on her arms and swings the fur of the fox around her black like a cape and puts on her leather straps and pirate attire. Hand guards and metal nails and gun holsters filled with bear mace.
