Tula Pink – De La Luna – Sugar Skulls – Spirit
The De la Luna Sisters are the not so distant cousins of the Von Black sisters, who made somewhat of a name for themselves a few years ago in collection called Night Shade. While the Von Black sisters drew their power from more earthly elements, the De la Luna sisters cull their magical gifts from the spirit realm. Once a year, as fall crashes into winter, the matriarchs of the De la Luna clan call on their ancestors, acting as vessels for their vast power. Maria De la Luna, the youngest of the three sisters can see into the great distance of the future as she draws her power from the most clairvoyant spirits in their lineage. She uses her prophetic sight to write letters to mean girls informing them of the exact time and place that they will die or sometimes when their boyfriends will break up with them depending on how mean they are. The middle Sister, Magnolia De la Luna, is perhaps the most cunning of the three although it’s hard to tell because she doesn’t wear glasses and everyone knows that the smartest people always wear glasses. Magnolia, Maggie for short, draws her power from the spirits of earth and bloom. She uses her potent power to cultivate and nurture vast gardens and lush landscapes for her highest paying clients. Oh, did I forget to mention that she runs a surprisingly successful landscape architecture firm in their prosperous south Texas town? The oldest sister, Venus De la Luna, the undisputed caretaker of the whole De Luna clan and best friend to her cousin Scarlet Von Black has a vary mysterious past. Venus leaves a trail of admirers where ever she goes. Great empires have fallen under her angelic gaze. Many great men sit alone in padded rooms spending endless days and boundless nights whispering her name to no one in – particular. She swears that she did nothing to encourage their favor and was only, ever, minding her own business. Just because these men choose to buy her gifts from her extensive online wish list is truly no fault of her own.
