There is a lot that is WRONG about this doctored cover, and not in the "haha" way we usually find on this thread. This is actually offensive and creepy.

Interest in HF: started in childhood with the classics, which, IMHO are HF even if they were contemporary when written.
Favourite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger
Preferred HF: Currently prefer 1600 and earlier, but I'll read anything that keeps me turning the page.

It's odd she's "peering" at her mirror with her eyes closed, though!

Same dress? I think Mythica has a few more examples of the red dress on her blog.

Not the same dress, but a similar style.
Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!
