MVW 2012: National Gown for Miss Australia 2012 by Tres Beau & Finesmith

The amazing and very artistic national gown for Miss Australia 2012 was made by Kimmera Madison, genius designer of Tres Beau. This gown is a total piece of art and a real outstanding design. The inspiration for this awesome creations was the Great Barrier Reef of Australia. Kimmera brought it on the runway with this incredible design. What you sadly can not see on the picture is the floating water texture that covers parts of the skirt. You really get the imagination or water that is running down the skirt again and again like a little waterfall that Miss Rissa Friller, Miss Australia 2012 carried around. Now available for everyone, you will find the “Miss Australia 2012” gown at the Tres Beau Mainstore.

To make the imagination of the living Great Barrier Reef perfect, Kimmera added certain parts out of the ocean, like seashells, fishes, little nemos, corals, and anemones for the back part and the huge head piece. This gown perfectly shows the skills and knowhow of Kimmera Madison. Her ideas and the ability to create exactly what she has in mind and her awesome textures and prims, make her so popular for such a long time. That maybe explains why most of the MVW candidates find their ways to Tres Beau for their gowns and costumes. For this year “Miss Australia 2012” was one of the 2 gowns from Tres Beau, that brought Miss Rissa Friller the 1st runner-up for Miss Virtual World 2012!

The jewelry for Miss Australia 2012 for sure came from Finesmith. Rissa was the Face of Finesmith for 2011 and so for sure yula made the jewelry for both of her gowns. The “Oceania” set was made for her national costume and it as well takes the theme of the Great Barrier Reef. The earrings, bracelet and ring carry as well seashells, corrals paired with awesome noble metals and gems. Matching nails for the “Oceania” set were the “Ocean” nails as well from Finesmith. Both you will find at the Finesmith Mainstore ๐Ÿ™‚

LovelyMi – Facetattoos, Makeups & More ;)

Who is Lovely… I guess there are not many people out there who do not know her. She is a crazy girl with a lot of skills, a sweet friend and a person that always can put a smile on my face. For example with her last story about the Finesmith models sale especially for her ๐Ÿ™‚ She started to pay yula for certain models that she put in a box for her very own Finesmith models collection. First one was Rhonda and second was me. She again made it to make me smile ๐Ÿ™‚

(LovelyMi – “Geisha I”, Model & Photographer: Wicca Merlin)

But now for her business.. she does a lot of things like working for Maniera Magazin, designing for House of Rage and working as a photographer, but she as well has an own cute little brand called LovelyMi, where she sells awesome makeups for every purpose.

Yesterday I broke in her IM and told her that I am in need of japanese makeups and not a second later the “Geisha” fatpack landed in my inventory. Most of the time, Lovely gives a full version and eyes or lips only as well in her packs.

(LovelyMi – “Geisha II The Vaher Dilemma”, Model & Photographer: WiccaMerlin)

Not too long ago she made all the Finesmith models an amazing present that I already used more than once for several blog posts… her amazing “Avant Garde” pack.

(LovelyMi – “Avant Garde”, Model & Photographer: Wicca Merlin)

The whole “Avant Garde” set contains 6 amazing black, white and grey eye makeups that can be used perfectly for many different stylings, they always add the little “i” dot on top ๐Ÿ˜‰

(LovelyMi – “Avant Garde”, Model & Photographer: Wicca Merlin)

To show what I meant with lips or eyes only, I would like to pull out the “Rouge Cry” that I bought longer ago.

(LovelyMi – “Rouge Cry /full”, Model & Photographer: Wicca Merlin)

Here we have the ‘full’ version, means eyes and lips combined. In the same pack i had eyes and lips single like you can see on the pic below…

(LovelyMi – “Rouge Cry”, Model & Photographer: Wicca Merlin)

Sometimes Lovely as well does themed make ups for example the “Nile Yula” what goes nicely with one of the Finesmith jewelry sets.

(LovelyMi – “Nile Yula /full”, Model & Photographer: Wicca Merlin)

And again we have the triple option of full, eyes only and lips only…

(LovelyMi – “Nile Yula”, Model & Photographer: Wicca Merlin)

Talking of themed makeups… last october, it must have been round Halloween, Lovely made some of those popular”Dia De Muertos” masks.

(LovelyMi – “Dia De Muertos Mask”, Model & Photographer: Wicca Merlin)

And why only have them in one color ๐Ÿ˜‰

(LovelyMi – “Dia De Muertos Mask”, Model & Photographer: Wicca Merlin)

If we are already talking about colors I can not skip the wonderful “Jessica” pack that I as well got just yesterday from Lovely ๐Ÿ™‚

(LovelyMi – “Jessica”, Model & Photographer: Wicca Merlin)

Again a makeup with a light asian touch because of the lips and the special style around the eyes.

(LovelyMi – “Jessica”, Model & Photographer: Wicca Merlin)

(LovelyMi – “Jessica”, Model & Photographer: Wicca Merlin)

Last but not least I would like to show you the very first make up that I bought at LovelyMi…

(LovelyMi – “La Mothe”, Model & Photographer: Wicca Merlin)

If I remember correctly it was an 55L$ Thursday item and it was the one that brought my attention to LovelyMi makeups a looooong time ago ๐Ÿ˜‰

If you wanna see the whole collection of Lovely’s makeups… you better ask her for a tour ๐Ÿ˜‰

MVW 2012: National Gown for Miss Germany 2012 by The White Armory & Finesmith

The german national gown for sure was something special for me, as I am german myself. All of the gown are stunning and wonderful but for some strange reason I have a special relation ship to this one. It reminds me a lot on the days of my childhood, where I was read so many fairy tales and novels of the Brothers Grimm. Rapunzel, Dornroeschen, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Little Red Cap, Snow White… All of the princesses in those storys must have worn such gowns… I am sure! ๐Ÿ˜‰ I really like the imagination of a german national gown with the relation ship to the Brothers Grimm and I never saw this idea before for such a purpose. The “Germany’s Crowning Jewel” gown, The White Armory/TWA made for Falbala Fairey, our Miss Germany 2012, is a masterpiece of art. I know TWA for some time and I always adored their medieval and roleplay gowns and clothing, so I am very happy that Falbala chose TWA, she could not have made a better choice for her imagination. The dress itself is made of black and many shades of blue. The huge skirt is made after the typical medieval skirt style with the wide hips and all the awesome folds and ruffles. The bodice as well has a black basic but the blue corset is made with excellent and filigree ornamented textures in all shades of blue. The prim parts on wrists and neck as well add a very special touch and show the love for the detail of designer Bee Dumpling. The “Germany’s Crowning Jewel” gown as well contains a crown that can be worn with and without lace in the style of the wrist and neck prims. The “Germany’s Crowning Jewel” gown you can find at the The White Armory Mainstore.

The jewelry set for sure comes from Finesmith and yula did an incredible job to make the total perfect set for this beautiful gown. The “Dornroeschen” set is really the set for the fairytale princess! It has so many great pieces and you really can see that they were made for the “Germany’s Crowning Jewel” gown. The 2 parts for the head, the delicate hairbun diamonds and the wonderful head-piece with that long parts that end in framed, awesome gemstones. A collar, a pair of earrings and the amazing corset decor of little flowers with a blue center complete the stunning “Dornroeschen” set, that you now can get at the Finesmith Mainstore.

MVW 2012: National Gown for Miss Spain 2012 by Mea Culpa & Finesmith

Mea Culpa made as well the national gown for Miss Spain 2012. Shena Neox made the 2nd runner-up for Miss Virtual World 2012 in 2 gowns of Mea Culpa. The beautiful evening gown I already showed in an earlier post, today I would like to lead the focus on the national gown of Miss Spain 2012. This gown really combines fashion, style and tradition. Tatanka Kaligawa showed more than once, that he perfectly can mix ethnic, traditional influences with a modern style of fashion and art. “Valentia del Toro” he named his creation and it really honors its name if you take a closer look on the hip attachments. There he worked some of the typical banderillas that are used for the bullfight. The colors are as well the typical spanish with red and black. The clothing layers carry a very filigree ornamented texture, what again shows Tatanka’s skills for making textures. The huge fan in the back with the red tentacles as well let you think on the typical spanish fans that we all know. The “Valentia del Toro” is now available at the Mea Culpa Mainstore together with the evening gown of Miss Spain 2012.ย  The jewelry again comes from Finesmith. Shena decided to go with the popular “Noir” set using the earrings and the bracelet. I added the collar and the ring as well. For the “Noir” set you have this great menu, yula includes in many of her jewelry, that let you change color and size for each part of the set. The “Noir” set you will find at the Finesmith Mainstore ๐Ÿ˜‰

The “Nala” gown was made by Poulet Koenkamp, and it is the 4th of the PurpleMoon gowns that made it to the Top 12 of this years Miss Virtual World Challenge. The dress is a wonderful combination of different fabrics. The delicate lace for the upper body and the attachment at the left side of the legs, the satin part for the basic gown and the wonderful line that parts the top from the bottom and oyu just get the feeling you could grab it and make a little ribbon out of it, so real it looks. The left shoulder remains free and at the right shoulder we have an awesome filigree lace part that covers it. The “Nala” gown you can find at the PurpleMoon Mainstore, even in more colors then the nude version Nala was wearing for MVW.

MVW 2012: Evening Gown for Miss Germany 2012 by PurpleMoon & Finesmith

As I said in one of my last posts, PurpleMoon did not have only one gown that made the Top 12 of this year Miss Virtual World Challenge. In complete 4 of Poulet Koenkamp’s gowns made it into the Top 12 this year and the evening gown of Miss Germany 2012 is number 3 on my blog for now… be sure number 4 will follow as well ๐Ÿ˜‰ For me it is a very special gown as Falbala Fairey, who carries the title of Miss Germany 2012 is a very special person to me, she is my little sister and I am feeling very honored to showcase the gown of PurpleMoon that was made for her, as well the awesome jewelry yula Finesmith did for her. For gown and jewelry you can see how close designers are working together to create the MVW dresses. Poulet did this amazing gown, covering the colors of the german flag, which are black, red and gold, in an amazing way. The tight gown accents the well-shaped body perfectly and the extraordinary prims give some awesome highlights. again we can see Poulet’s love for th detail on the “Falbala” gown. The huge shoulder prim on the right shoulder is made with the red outside and a gold inside, as well the upper parts of the gloves have this awesome little feature. Half of the chest part glitters in gold and the other is covered by the delicate red satin texture. I totally love that none symmetric style. Now for the jewelry… yula Finesmith did an extraordinary job this year for all the MVW candidates that stormed her doors… if I look over all the gowns and jewelry I got, it seems she was the most busy designer for jewelry this year ๐Ÿ˜‰ and that for a reason… she just is amazing, a wonderful person to work with and she is great in making dreams come true ๐Ÿ˜‰ The “Falbala” set is an incredible masterpiece of art. The filigree earrings, the delicate necklace that goes down in the back and decorates the deep back neckline of the “Falbala” gown… simply amazing. Then the little orchid shaped flowers at the hips that carry those long and thin lines that go to the upper right and the repeat of this orchid shape for the bracelet… it just caught my heart totally! The “Falbala”gown you will find at the PurpleMoon Mainstore in different colors as well as far as I know Poulet, and the “Falbala” jewelry set you will find at the MVW room at the Finesmith Mainstore.
