Her body, it's so...
Carmen stands at a small 5' 3" and weighs only 103 lbs. Though, by the way that she looks, one could swear that she weights more. Her skin is a creamy, pale color, almost seeming white in certain lights. Since her skin is so light in color, it’s hard to see any imperfections. She does have one beauty mark underneath her left eye on her cheek. Her body is curvy, despite the fact that she weighs so little.
Her stomach is tone and taunt, which helps in her curvy look. Of course, waist cinchers also help with that look, but her outfit is another story. Carmen is great at giving the illusion that her legs are never ending. Her legs are tone, but not so much to make people question if she works out or now.
Is her hair really that soft?
The raven black hair that Carmen has is not her natural color. She was born with light brown hair. She felt that the hair and the skin didn’t seem to go good together and decided something different, that’s where the black came from. From a distance, it seems soft and silky, and it is. When your hand touches it, one can see just how soft it really is. It’s almost like the fur of a baby kitten under your hand. Her hair style changes often. One day it maybe done like someone from the 1940s; the next it will have a side part, letting soft waves cascade over the right side of her face. She takes great pride in her hair and does upkeeps on it as often as she has to. If one didn’t know better, they would think that the raven black hair was her natural color.
Her eyes are captivating…
Carmen does have lovely eyes. And the way she does her make up, it just makes it seem that much beautiful. Normally they are just a regular blue color, ordinary just like everyone else’s. However, once her dark eyeliner comes on, they take on a whole new look. Her eye liner is either done in a plain and modest way, so that it doesn’t over power her natural beauty. Or it’s done so that it resembles a cat. She loves having “cat eyes” because she finds them sultry and mysterious. Her normal blue eyes suddenly appear lighter, paler. The makeup also makes her skin seem paler, especially when the bright red lipstick that coats her full lips.
Her style, how did she come up with it…
Carmen is best known for her elegant gowns and corsets. When she wears dresses or normal clothing, she tends to down play the dramatic color. Neutrals and pale gold help compliment her skin and hair, making her blend in and stand out all at the same time. When wanting to party or make a good impression, she goes with something a bit more dramatic, such as tight waist cinchers and corsets, both which are elaborate. Long skirts are something she tends to lean toward the most, liking to stay modest when in public. However, when at work, Carmen will leave the long skirts behind for something, a little more revealing. Short skirts, bathing suit styled bottoms, anything to make her customers happy, she’ll wear.
Carmen is a kind, caring woman, not wanting to do harm to anyone. She grew up, learning to respect her elders and carry herself with pride. Carmen knows what she’s talking about before she opens her mouth. She also knows when to pick her fights and when to leave something alone. She tries hard to live like the classic beauties of the 1940s did, loving how they kept their work and personal lives separated from each other. When meeting people for the first time, she would politely introduce herself, and try to hold a conversation until her attention is drawn elsewhere.
Carmen also holds a fiery temper. It takes a lot to actually set her off, but one doesn’t even want to try. And once someone has angered Carmen, she isn’t one to forget about it. Carmen is the type of girl to take anger or hate to the grave and dish it out whenever she gets the chance. Of course she is careful on how she does it. She’ll keep a calm disposition and wear a smile on her face as she tells all on her enemies.
She enjoys staying at home and listening to classical music, all the while learning all she can about her family history and past. She has secret goals of not only being a professional dancer, but to be a historian as well. She finds the medieval period to be the most fascinating time of them all. She works hard at both of her goals, longing to mix pleasure with pain.

21 years ago, Carmen was born into a small family in Washington State. Like all little girls, she grew up learning ballet and other girlie charms. Her childhood was normal enough. She spent most of her days outside, playing with her older sister and younger brother and friends. At a young age, she expressed interest in old school beauties such as Bettie Page and Marilyn Monroe. Her grandmother helped foster this new found interest. When she was 12, her mom took her out and bought her, her first pair of stockings and corset for a Halloween costume. Her fetish took off from there, only expanding and forming into something more.
At the age of 15 her mother moved Carmen and her sisters to New York City because of a better job. Working double shifts, Carmen hardly ever to get see her mother, her sister acting in her place. Carmen never stood out in school and would often come home complaining how horrible it was. Anita, being close and who walked down the same path her sister did, decided to help her out. That night they went out and bought hair color, which ultimately did more good than either of them thought it would. The next day at school, she was accepted into the popular group. Her life only seemed to get better from there on out.
While out searching for a job one day, now being 18, a sign in a window caught her eye. The store was looking for someone with a dancing background. Entering the dark store, she was drawn to the elaborately decorated center stage. The manager showed her around and told her that she would dance for money, but not in a degrading way. She would be able to do anything she wanted and dress how she pleased. Carmen smiled politely and signed up almost immediately. Her mother and sister were not thrilled about her new found profession. Her mother was the most upset and made the tough decision to throw her daughter out of the house. Carmen was taken in by some of her co-workers and put all her effort into finishing school and work.
By the time that she graduated, Carmen was valedictorian and had a minor in history. She was also the headlining act at the club. She spent her free time at the local library, learning as much as she could about the history of New York and other places she found interesting. Carmen now has her own home, and her own money to be proud of saying she earned. Her closets are full of corsets and lovely gowns. Her expensive jewels are kept in a safe hidden under her bed. She lived life well for the next several years before bad news reached her ears. When she was 21, everyone’s life changed again, a meteor struck New York. Her mother and older sister were out shopping in Manhatten when it happened. Standing around at work and hearing the news, Carmen became upset and left work without saying a word. Chaos irrupted in the streets, as she fought her way to her younger brother’s school. Pulling him out, she broke the news to him in the streets, both of them crying their eyes out. She some how managed to take him back to her house, were everything seemed to be ok. But once she entered her bedroom, she saw how far away from the truth she really was. Her clothes were thrown around the room, mirrors, lamps, everything was broken. Her safe, was left wide open in the middle of her room, all her jewelry gone. Carmen sent her brother back to Washington State to live with their Aunt and Uncle. She now works harder than ever to make her dreams come true.
