An elven Cinderella getting ready for the royal ball. But her fairy godmother is worried: even though she used her favorite magic wand, the dress turned out too dark. The girl is unaware of it. She doesn't even notice that the pearls along the hem are made of tears, that the lacing in her top has thorns, and the pendant is a drop of blood. She is waiting for the carriage that will take her to the ball.
