I love the dress she is wearing. Her weapon seems quite interesting too; it's all bloody and brutish, and it has the air and glint of something beastly albeit cold at the same time. It suits her, in a rather peculiar way. I cannot name it though, despite having encountered similar weapon designs in the past in many pictures and video games. Do you mind telling me what it's called?

Indeed the word Elpis is hope in Greek, but it's the old form. It's used in ancient Greek. Elpida is what is used in Greece nowadays as a name, but I like her as Elpis :) (I'm from Greece, that's why I know about how the name is ;) )

Claparo-Sans Featured By Owner May 6, 2011
Yes, it does exist. It's not a fantasy weapon anyway~ In fact, there are so many cool claws/katar types in real life: [link] But I prefer the simplest one, it would be easier to draw ^^;
