It's me, Mrs Elvsted (but not in a good way)
Hair, perspex, glass, matches, bags
Mrs Elvsted is a character from Henrik Ibsen's play Hedda Gabler. Ibsen’s stage directions note that Thea Elvsted's hair is "remarkably light, almost a white-gold, and unusually abundant and wavy." When they were children, the play's protagonist Hedda Gabler, would bully Thea: pulling her hair and threatening to burn it off.
Aged 16, while studying for my English A-level, my teacher nicknamed me 'Mrs Elvsted'.
