So do not miss that one! The designs came in wonderful packaging as well. These inspired me for my pictures. Every gown or dress stood in a wooden mini stage. This brought me to the idea of the puppet hangar I have in my inventory for so long and did not yet know what to do with it 😉 As I had the puppet theme stuck in my head the great masks of illusion came into mind as well so I just found one of them for each of the great Vanguard designs. The whole collection is hold in black and some dark lavender. Anyways if it is a dress or a gown, the whole collection has this huge ruffled prims as a red line going through all of them. For today I would like to showcase 3 of them. Rollyn Humphrey again shows an incredible taste and awesome skills of her creative mind in style and design. for me the whole collection is a must have for my wardrobe… I would not wanna miss one of them 😉 So take the next taxi to the Vanguard Mainstore 😉 (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Fazul/53/215/286)

MVW 2012: National Gown for Miss South Korea 2012 by PurpleMoon

PurpleMoon made not just of the gowns, that made it into the Top 12 of this years Miss Virtual World Challenge finalists. The national gown of Miss South Korea, Caoimhe Lionheard was another one :). This amazing “Sa-rang” gown has a very filigree and delicate texture that is perfectly brought on that amazing sculpted skirt. The trees are a typical asian ornament that we all know from a lot of asian pictures, asia porcelain and as well room dividers and other furniture. The color underlines the asia theme in a wonderful way. The huge black ribbon reminds me of the big ribbons I saw a lot of times at the back of kimonos as well, but it also adds a wonderful modern touch. The tassel that goes down from that ribbon again shows the amazing eye for the detail Poulet Koenkamp has if it comes to ideas and design. If you take a look at the amazing hair, it was as well made by PurpleMoon and is part of that gorgeous gown. The hair is a firework of prims and textures and a piece of art itself. The mixture of hair, jewelry and ornaments just gives an imagination how long Poulet must have sat on this awesome ensemble, which now is available at the PurpleMoon Mainstore.

MVW 2012: Evening Gown for Miss South Korea 2012 by Angel Dessous

The wonderful evening gown for Miss South Korea 2012 was made by Angel Dessous. “Seoul” is an awesome gown, that stands out in prim work and design. Nando Korobase tailored this awesome dress for Miss Caoimhe Lionheart for this years MVW challenge. The skirt itself is a masterpiece with the long train in the back and the short front. The ruffles and folds are made with such a love for the detail that you only can imagine how long Nando must have sit there and created them. His great skills for the texturing you can see as well if you look more and more up to the bodice. First the waistpart comes in the same basic texture as the skirt and the cleavage and shoulders are covered by delicate, filigree lace. This awesome lace you can find for the leggins as well, and they are wonderful shown because of the high front of the skirt. The chest part is not just a basic black part it looks like 2 overlapping parts – again the prove for Nando’s love for the detail. The little collar carries 2 wonderful ornaments that match the necklace and the belly jewelry part. Together with the fingerless gloves the whole attire is very sophisticated and classy with a fresh and modern touch. If you take a closer look you can see the little jewelry parts at the belly and the necklace. Both are part of the stunning “Seoul” dress as well, so you only have to add a pair of earrings – in my case the white version of the “Hermosa Espina” from Finesmith. The incredible headpiece as well is made by Angel Dessous. No wonder that this incredible beautiful gown made the Top 12 for the MVW 2012 challenge!!!

Mea Culpa did a fantastic job on the Evening gown for Miss Shena Neox, Miss Spain 2012. Black and red are the typical colors we think of, if it comes to Spain. So even for the evening gown Tatanka Kaligawa kept this colors. The basic red color of the dress is broken wonderful by the black fans and applications. The black ornaments are made with such a great eye for the details, where you again can see the incredible skills of Tatanka Kaligawa.  All those different shades of red and even a mixture of different red textures make this gown a piece of art. The jewelry is very filigree and delicate for the earings and necklace, but also the 2 amazing fans for head and hand are part of this amazing set. The fans underline the theme of the dress perfectly. “Hermosa Espina” you can purchase in 2 different colors at the Finesmith Mainstore. Shena Neox made it to the 2nd runner-up in the MVW 2012 contest with the “Devine Decision” gown from Mea Culpa and the “Hermosa Espina” jewelry set from Finesmith.
