Tempestuous makeover

Something a little unusual tonight! A before and after 'makeover'. Sometimes, you just need a little retail therapy. If that's followed by a trip to the theatre, so much the better. Here's the before of my friend and muse, Isolde, one part of my heart.
SCENE I. On a ship at sea: a tempestuous noise of thunder and lightning is heard. 2 You are a counsellor; if you can command these elements to silence, and work the peace of the present, we will not hand a rope more; use your authority: if you cannot, give thanks you have lived so long, and make yourself ready in your cabin for the mischance of the hour, if it so hap. Cheerly, good hearts! 4 Now would I give a thousand furlongs of sea for an acre of barren ground, long heath, brown furze, any thing. The wills above be done! but I would fain die a dry death. 3 Lie there, my art. Wipe thou thine eyes; have comfort. The direful spectacle of the wreck, which touch'd the very virtue of compassion in thee, I have with such provision in mine art So safely ordered that there is no soul-- No, not so much perdition as an hair betid to any creature in the vessel which thou heard'st cry, which thou saw'st sink. 5 The jewel in my dower, I would not wish any companion in the world but you, Nor can imagination form a shape, besides yourself, to like of. 10 O heaven, O earth, bear witness to this sound and crown what I profess with kind event if I speak true! if hollowly, invert what best is boded me to mischief! I beyond all limit of what else i' the world do love, prize, honour you. 7 My man-monster hath drown'd his tongue in sack: for my part, the sea cannot drown me; I swam, ere I could recover the shore, five and thirty leagues off and on. By this light, thou shalt be my lieutenant, monster, or my standard. 8 Be not afeard; the isle is full of noises, sounds and sweet airs, that give delight and hurt not. Sometimes a thousand twangling instruments will hum about mine ears, and sometime voices that, if I then had waked after long sleep, will make me sleep again: and then, in dreaming, the clouds methought would open and show riches ready to drop upon me that, when I waked, I cried to dream again. 9 
Rhapsody is an event all about music. The Hottie Cooterati have put together a SIM of sounds, with sections and stores dedicated to genres from Jazz to Punk, through Metal Disco and Pop! There's close to 100 stores, these, and the themed rooms are amazing. I did NOT want to leave the tartan and zips of the Punk room! Unless otherwise stated, items below are from the event, which runs until 12th July, so you will need to get a wriggle on, or shake your groove thang, boogie on over to...
