I have had these incredible Gowns for some time to post on. One of the truly amazing things about Second Life is the ability to dress up every single day. Not just to look fabulously stylish, but to actually go the true formal route.
This first formal gown isthe Heartbreaker Gown, both of these gowns are from Inaras and they are just lovely. This gown has a very mature style to it, in the high collar and cinched waist. The added detailing of a dagger through a heart on the hemline and the daggers on the corset give a very Fairy Tale style look.
The deep blue is very regal, so if you are going for a more severe but still very elegant and beautiful look, then this would be it. The Hair Piece is from Canimal, her latest creation which are Skellyflies, no seriously, skull head butterflies, as scary and macabre as that sounds, they are really adorable. They are click on to change, and you get a huge array of different wing colours to choose from, making co-ordination easy.
With the re opening of ETD, Mel and I went to restock me with some older styles, this is the Cadey style a very tight chignon style. Framing the face beautifully so that you get to accentuate and highlight your features, also perfect for featuring stunning jewelry , but I thought that the Skellyflies were enough with this look.
The skin I am wearing is again from Your Skin, this is the Adriana skin, really lovely and sharp looks with these skins, they come with hair and freckles options, also the style of the skin , as in the character is very chiselled, which can be very attractive depending on your shape. Give the DEMOS a whirl.
This is the Cold Baby Blue Gown, again from Inaras, This is also an incredibly lovely gown, with its theme worked very well indeed. The fur detailing is a silvery delight, and the soft icey blue is a wonderful backdrop for all the silver trim. What I especially liked was that the fur trim across the upper portion of the gown was seperated by the arms, allowing for better movement, I have seen that done as one in the past which can get fiddly when dancing and taking pics.
Incredibly perfect for this Gown is the Glowing Icicles set from Bliensen + MaiTai. This set has glow so be aware that is what is going on around the icicles. The necklace and earrings are just wonderful, but that hair sticks combo is fabulous, definitely Must Haves for this coming cooler season for us down here in the cuter part of the planet :P.
The skins is another skin from Your Skin, the Vivien is again very chiselled with alluring make ups, the shading and detailing on the skin is subtle and highlights all the right features, DEMOS are always a MUST MUST MUST, so be sure to check out the full range of skins at Your Skin.
Again an older style from ETD is the Janae style, a lovely piled Uppy Do.
Now about the poses, they are actually animations, and they are only three of many. I was browsing through Xstreet last week and saw an AO, the pics looked cute, but of course I wanted to go to the store to try them out, well alas no store, so based on the price and me being in that crazy mind set I took a risk…LUCKILY it payed off, I don’t recommend doing this usually at all, but this turned out to be a huge bargain and so adorable.
The Oracul Pure Lady AO is so awesome, not only is it chocablock full of animations, 101 to be precise, but it was only 300L and it has not only animations for adults, but teens and children too, meaning the height and size of the animation slightly varies. This thing has ballet moves, crazy jumps fun flight and sexy walks abound. The HUD is a bit tricky to work out, but you can of course move them all to a zhao 2 if you feel more comfy that way. CHECK THE PICS and product info HERE. I emptied mine, yes copy animations , and put them all in a posestand, then using advanced>character>slow animations I was able to capture different shots on the few I used today.
Also wanted to point out, that I am wearing i-balls eyes by Miabella Foxley, they aren’t available in world as yet, but will be one day so stay tuned for those. Beautiful eyes, with such stunning colours, I am wearing the steel.
