FEBRUARY 2015 COLOR OF THE MONTH – The 6th of twelve shades in the “Mythical Monsters” year theme!
The chupacabra (literally “goat-sucker”) is a legendary cryptid rumored to inhabit parts of the Americas, with the first sightings reported in Puerto Rico. The name comes from the animal’s reported habit of attacking and drinking the blood of livestock, especially goats. Physical descriptions of the creature vary. It is purportedly a heavy creature, the size of a small bear, with a row of spines reaching from the neck to the base of the tail. Sightings in Southern America have revealed the creature to be a type of skinny, grey and mangy canid, with large fangs and bright blue eyes. (source Wikipedia)
Color Description: I wanted to make a wearable buff/earthy shade with red tones and (in person) this shade has beautiful layers of gold and sapphire blue iridescence- I was very interested in the idea in America of the chupacabra being a dog-like creature with bright blue eyes and kind of dull grey/blue skin.
