MVW 2012: National Gown for Miss Netherland 2012 by Gizza & Finesmith

The national gown for Miss Netherlands 2012 is made by GizzA and the matching jewelry was made by Finesmith. The wonderful tulip theme is typical for the Netherlands in general. GizzA and Finesmith perfectly worked together to create this wonderful out fit for Miss Draajke Daily. The combination of pink and green came out totally awesome. The shape and texture of the tulips and the whole “Tulip Gown” are made in a very fashionable and modern way. The dress has this awesome sculpted 2 huge attachments for the shoulder and neck part and the skirt is made of 5 wonderful attachments. The “Tulp” jewelry set from Finesmith comes with a pair of earrings, the necklace and an amazing bracelet. The “Tulp” set is available in a few more amazing colors as well at the Finesmith Mainstore. Both, jewelry and gown are made wonderful detailed with the tulips, some petals and they are incredible great textured.

Cute News by Ezura!!!

Ezura‘s latest release really is one of the most cute things I got lately. The sweet “Lolita Latex” dress really touched my ‘dolly heart’ πŸ˜‰ I had to style it the cute way at least once πŸ™‚ The short latex, flexi skirt perfectly goes with the “Lolita Latex” boots (sold seperately) in color and style. The corsage makes a strict and tight contrast to the puffy ruffles and the little brooch of the top.

As we know from Ezura, she always acts like a perfectionist if it comes to designs and textures. Latex is one of the most difficult texture to do in SL I was told by many designers, because of the lightnings and shadows to produce this typical shine. As we can see on this dress Ezura did an amazing job and made it as realistic as possible.

The dress is available in many different colors and for the “TwistedΒ  Krissmuss Event”Β Β  Ezura made a special color, wich I liked a lot as well.

All prims do have resizer in it so that you can fit it perfectly to your avatar. For the skirt you have the flexi prim option that I have on my pics and as well a sculpted non flexi one. To see more of Ezura‘s latest releases or to see all the colors (black, red, blue, yellow, pink, purple) of the “Lolita Latex” dress you better make your way to the Ezura Mainstore and take a look by yourself πŸ˜‰

As well Ezura celebrates her 3rd Anniversary with a special event and sale.

Vanguard – Rising star on the fashion heaven?

Lately I got approached by a new designer I never heard before. Her name is Rollyn Humphrey and the brand she owns and designs for is called Vanguard. I unpacked the outfits and I have to say a few of them really caught my attention, so I would like to show you 3 if them for now. The fist one you can see above is called “Freak” and somehow it fits its name πŸ˜‰ The dress itself is wonderful sculpted and the texture is superb. I only added the new Finesmith “Fabrege” brooch. The rest is all part of the outfit including the hood that hides the head, what made it kinda interesting for me πŸ˜‰ To make sure, that no body parts stick out Rollyn added 2 alpha layers.

The second gown carries the name “Goldness” and for me it was kinda my personal favourite of the collection I got, even if all of them are great. Again perfect prim work and as well an incredible great texture again!

My last outfit for this post is the “I <3 Mcqueen” dress, certainly from Vanguard as well πŸ˜‰ Again we can see the great skills of Rollyn Humphrey, if it comes to texturing. Her ideas are fresh and modern and I really think this creations can be part of the fashion future in SL as they stand out from many other stuff. You should make the effort and visit the Vanguard Mainstore (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Fazul/54/214/286)

LeeZu meets Finesmith for Christmas ;)

Awesome news by LeeZu and Finesmith, two of my favourite designers, made me combine them for the blog πŸ˜‰

The first dress, what you can see above as well, unbeliveable but true is the actual groupgift from LeeZu. Perfect for Christmas and the Holy Days, this red dress has so many sweet details. The long skirt is made perfectly flexible. The top only is a tiny cute part that covers the private parts as much as it has to to keep the outfit PG πŸ˜‰

The huge hat as well is part of the “Anastasia” groupgift. The candle, baubel and other sweet details really make this hat to a little peace of art. I just added the PurpleMoon “Ana” hair in platinum and the appropriate hairbase.The skin comes from Glam Affair and te makup was made by LovelyMi as part of her christmas gift.

For the jewelry I added one of the latest Finesmith releases – the “Alexandra” set in white. Yula Finesmith released some of her creations in white as a special for the season. “Alexandra” is one of them, the others will follow πŸ˜‰

The second outfit as well comes from LeeZu. A special edition of the “Natascha” dress in red. The short and sexy dress in the perfect Holiday color makes a super cute Ms Santa as well πŸ˜‰ The awesome red “Street Blues Boots” are as well from LeeZu. The boots come in 2 different versions for each color in the same packet. one is the uni color and one is mixed with some highlights. For the jewelry I decided to go with the set that Draakje Daily got for her national costume fat the MVW 2012 finals. The “Tulp” set in red was the best jewelry I could think of for the cute little sexy Ms Santa version of mine :p. I hope that I soon can show you all of the amazing sets , yula Finesmith did for some of the MVW 2012 candiates πŸ˜‰

Rocking all over the world with Prism!

Today I call Herradura Baar guilty for no sleeping long enough :p… Short before I was logging for the night she jumped in my IMs asking me if I got the latest release of Prism. I did not yet and immediately 2 versions of “Gisele” appeared in my inventory. Curious, as I am always if I get news from Journey McLaglen, I put the first one on… and as soon as it rezzed I fell in love and had the theme for pics in mind. In RL I am a musician and mostly I play rock music and “Gisele” asked for some rock chicks pics in my mind *giggles. And there they are πŸ™‚ “Gisele” in Dancin (above) and Apple Tree (below) totally called me back to the 80’s. I am sure you can style them in many different ways but for me the 80’s rock theme stuck in my head πŸ˜‰ As always the textures are totally awesome and perfectly made with the amazing skills of Journey. Her clothing always stood and stands for quality. “Gisele” comes with crazy colored, cool pants, a knitted top with an amazing scarf and the great belt. You should really make your way to the Prism Mainstore and find you personal favourite color… I know Journey for a while and I am sure she made more than this 2 color versions of “Gisele” πŸ™‚

Keep on rocking!!!
