Flora by Laiyla
After being raped by the West Wind, Flora turned from a simple wood nymph into the goddess of spring and flowers. Her rapist then married her. Unfortunately no one really cared what a young woman thought or felt in those days.

To be honest, I’d rather live in the woods peacefully than being forced to marry my rapist, even if I should happen to become a flower goddess. 

Poor Flora.

Every day women still end up like Flora, with the exception that they don’t become a fertility goddess. Man or woman or anything in between, be the change you want to see and end violence, rape and slavery of women!

The original can be purchased at
and you can buy prints, phonecases, throw pillows, tshirts, mugs, tote bags and a lot more at… !
Prints and more are also available on DeviantArt.
Amsterdammertje by Laiyla
This is part of a series of postcards I'm creating for Fantasy Shop Chimera.
This one is already being sold in the shop!

The themes of the set will be fantasy vs. Amsterdam; so here's a little troll with an Amsterdammertje (that's what the pole is called for the non-Dutchies).
Most true Amsterdammers will know the amsterdammertje mainly from collapsing into it with your bike while being drunk.
I nearly broke my ankle once because of that. 
But perhaps I shouldn't have worn high heels when going out and perhaps I shouldn't have drunk so many beers that night. 

But oh well. I was 18 and silly. XD

Hi everyone!

As you have probably noticed I'm not that active anymore on DeviantART.
I recently did a move to Facebook and won't be posting here often anymore.

If you want to keep in touch with my costumes, click here:…
and for my drawings and paintings, click here:
For my blog and photography, you can visit

I will be posting regular paintings, sketches and overall ramblings on my art page. I don't model that much anymore so my model page is a bit more inactive but I do post there every now and then and you can watch my portfolio there.

I hope to see you there!

hey just wondering if you would be interested in designing a tattoo of a spartan warrior that has died and gone to Elysium?

if so how much would you be looking to charge?
Laiyla Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2013  Professional General Artist

I am sorry for the silence, I don't check my DA profile as often anymore.
For the tattoo design, that depends on how big you want it and if you want it black and grey or in colour. I am happy to give you an estimate!
A large colour piece usually costs about 60 to 80 euros (plus you will get the original for free) and a large black/grey piece costs around 20-30 euros.

hey thanx for the reply, but i have already had it done.
