Today I would like to take a closer look in the national gown of Miss Panama 2012, Miss Mely Gibbs. The fantastic “Miss Panama”costume was made by Kimmera Madison, yes again a Miss Virtual World 2012 design by Tres Beau 😉
I was thinking by myself, if I could think about something typical for
Panama, and I was not really able to. I tried to google a bit and found a few traditional costumes, that looked very close to the one Tres Beau did. Again was impressed on the research, Kimmera did to create this incredible and adorable costume. Panama is the southernmost country of Central America, and many different cultures and influences got settled down there. To get the exact information about that I recommend to take a look at Wikipedia, what I did too and why I should just copy information you can read at the place where it came from ;p (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Panama) But I saw a lot of indian influences as well and some of those looked very close to the one Kimmera did 🙂 She really put a lot of work, love and eye for the detail on this costume. All this different fabrics like metal, feathers, delicate fabrics for the clothing layers… for me a again a masterpiece of art. First, as I put on that gown, I thought ‘omg how can I ever find a pose for that huge gown?!?’ but I have to admit it was not that hard as I thought of… I kinda think Kimmera knows about that and she designs even the most huge looking gowns and costumes and you still can find poses to showcase them. The attachment points are chosen so very well that the gown moves naturally with every inch you move by yourself. For me that just underlines, that Tres Beau is one of the most popular and everlasting brands in SL for a reason 😉 “Miss Panama” is now available at the Tres Beau Mainstore.
Miss Mely Gibbs chose an already existing set from Finesmith to complete her look. The “Coral Blossom” set sets an awesome blue accent as well with the necklace, the wonderful earrings and the stunning face ornament. All the wonderful round shaped gems picked up the theme for me and I think it was a good choices for the beautiful “Miss Panama” costume. Normally you have an awesome tiara as well that is included in the “Choral Blossom” it just would have got lost under that huge headpiece of the “Miss Panama” costume 😉 The “Coral Blossom” set you will find in different colors as well at the Finesmith Mainstore.
