You probably wouldn't believe this, but I had a dream with this a year or so back. Instead of opals it was regular smokey crystal, and they grew on the legs in long spikes once you hit puberty or something. It was wonderful and horrifying at the same time. I have to say your version is much, much prettier. Love the gems, and the hair. So shiny and candy like.

The sheer fear factor and beauty in this is just amazing(not Opalitis the image in general). I have a hobby I've developed ever since I was able to use internet where I'd research weird Viruses, Infections, Diseases, etc. This just puts a smile on my face for all the wrong and right reasons.
