[quote=""LadyB""]I think I've found the white dress again, but with another head photoshopped on top. At least the sleeve isn't gaping so much on this one:

Looks like this author is a big fan of The Dress!

I think by now it deserves its own Goodreads page , may set one up later if I have time :p

Slightly different with the turn of the head and color of the dress but otherwise, I think these are the same:

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.

except some really bad photoshopping on the green one. It looks like that was the original FRONT of a dress, complete with foreparte. All made more obvious with the screaming green.

Maybe the girl on the cover is going to get her dress fixed because the original maker sewed it backwards?

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!
