Mythica, I always sort of pictured the West in atmospherically faded sepia tones ...

Also ... WHAT is that pink acetate monstrosity dress? Civil War? Holy frijoles.

That knight is starting to make the rounds.

@Diane, that bright color on the bottom is awful. I have seen this pair a lot with just the upper pink and they look nice. Is it possible the other was Photoshopped in?

Even the top looks cheap shiny acetate to me, but yes that fuschia is at war with everything in the image. Is that the "civil war" to which the series title refers ... ?

Those colors certainly are at war with each other. Here's the same couple with only the neckline of the dress visible.
