Pimp My Rider

Reading Magic Mentha recently, I saw she has a deck called the Fauxbergé, for which she thanked Submerina of "the princess and the sea" blog.  Hunting around I discovered that Submerina had trimmed the borders of a Universal Tarot and put glitter on it, and in October 2010 she did a give-away with Celeste/Magic Mentha as the lucky winner.  Looking deeper, there's a whole thread on this at Aeclectic titled "Pimp My Rider" - lots of people blinging decks they don't especially like.

The idea intrigues me - a blinged-out tarot deck!  As someone who loves shiny, sparkly things, how could I resist?  The Illuminated Tarot has the same thing going on, but not everyone can afford that, beautiful as it may be.  Plus there's the delight of a truly personalised deck.

So, I have decided to try to do my own.  I'll be using the Universal Waite Tarot and some glitter nail polish.  I don't plan to trim the borders, but to explore what I find most magical in each card, and bling that

Stay tuned to see the results, or hear the tales of woe.
