Marita Overland for “Claim the Fame” – Week 2 – Formal

For the first week of Claim the Fame the designers had to create a formal attire for male and female and make a description that was read during the TV Show on Metaverse TV. (http://metaversetv.com/blog/2011/04/claim-the-fame-2/)

All designs of the Claim the Fame Shows are available at the KULT District (for surl please click here)

Marita Overland:”Wicca wears a lovely white gown consisting of a scuplted top and half skirt.  You can’t help but notice the stylish silver armor on the shoulders and waist along with a structured bow in the back.  As if the skirt wasn’t elegant enough, it glitters even more with a second layer of fabric.  The shoes are also included in this romantic, yet edgy, ensemble.

Harsch is wearing the “Romeo” version of the formal wear. A miliary style jacket and pants, in white and gray, are a wonderful compliment to his “Juliet”.  The jacket is adorned with a high collar, cuffs, armored shoulders and belt.  The boots are also included with the outfit you see here.  Seemingly for seeing his own fate, the belt includes the poison he will take his own life with and the dagger Juliet will use to perish herself. True love never looked so stylish.”

Lexi Vargas, designer of  Brocade Tiger, brought a neat firework of amazing textures with the “clockwork” couple outfit that was not just formal in my view 😉 As well I saw a light steampunk touch in that as well what really touched my soul 😉

Lexi Vargas:”‘Lady Clockwork’, a striking formal gown in the Steampunk tradition. A three-layered skirt gives depth with two layers of striped fabric topped with a draped and partially jeweled top layer in the signature clock print fabric. The fitted, square necked bodice is a combination of the striped and print fabrics and the same theme carries into the beautifully shaped and traditionally fitted sleeves embellished with puffs at shoulder, elbow and wrist. The whole ensemble is drawn together by a semi opaque bow and drape effect that makes a dramatic silk waterfall down one side of the gown. Sure to be an eyecatcher at any formal event where Steampunk/Victorian dress is required.

The male model strikes a dashing note in ‘Lord Gear’, a formal outfit that has its roots steeped in Steampunk tradition. There is much attention to detail in this suit. A duel fabric jacket of chocolate leather and striped fabric skims the shoulder line, with the same effect carried into the pants. These clever styling details make for a simply stunning outfit. The jacket lapels and collar are decorated with gears and cogs and the pants with buckles and straps. A cream satin edged shirt with frilled jabot collar and brooch completes the look. This outfit could be worn at any suitable formal occasion enabling the wearer to stand out from the crowd and it would certainly delight any Steampunk gentleman worth his cogs.”

Inga Wind for “Claim the Fame” – Week 2 – Formal

For the first week of Claim the Fame the designers had to create a formal attire for male and female and make a description that was read during the TV Show on Metaverse TV. (http://metaversetv.com/blog/2011/04/claim-the-fame-2/)

Inga Wind, Designer of Inga Wind Designs, started with “Penelope” and “Bartelby”, a wonderful details and lovely looking couple outfit.

Inga Wind:”Penelope” is an amazing blue formal dress. The basic is made in a non symmetrical manner that makes a bare right shoulder while the left shoulder is decorated with an amazing detailed sculpted prim. The top layer has a very elegant texture that is broken by an awesome lace stripe that runs diagonal from the right upper to the left hip.
The skirt as well continues the non symmetric look. On the left side it goes further down with a wonderful ornamented sheer texture that is framed by an opaque looking satin border and the left is lightly shorter.
Gloves, shoes and the lovely headpiece come with the whole outfit so you have no trouble to match the right color and look.

“Bartelby” was made to match “Penelope” perfectly. The black basic makes a wonderful tailcoat with amazing flexible prims in the back, where the seams carry the same texture that you already saw on “Penelope” as well the little neat bow tie. The white shirt shows off folds and shadows in a very realistic way. Collar, bow tie, cuffs and Sleeves are made of sculpted prims what ad as well a very realistic touch. The black pants complete the elegant male look and the sash round the waist again shows off the amazing blue texture decorated with filigree ornaments and buttons.
“Penelope” & “Bartelby” are the perfect couple for the perfect couple :)”

Cross my flower and hope to die – Finesmith released a nother stunning jewelry set!

Lately I had a great honor… yula asked me to take a picture of myself with one of her newest jewelry sets!!! “Cross my fingers and hope to die”. It was such a pleasure and I was so excited… and then I saw the final advertise as she released the set a few days ago.

Even if it was pink and with flowers… yes I know I am not the typical girlie… I liked this creation a lot! I love the non usual ideas like the sweet jewelry flower in the mouth and as well how the theme of the flower was repeated in every part of that set. If you take a look at the earrings, they are not made symmetrical for left and right… no, both pointing in  another direction 🙂 The great necklace again carries the filigree lines that make the petal of the flower part. For sure you can color the whole jewelry and the gems like you know it from the Finesmith Designs jewelry already, with the awesome menu that you have contained in each part of the “Cross my fingers and hope to die” set. You can color the metal parts as well as the gem parts. and the gemstones itself have awesome presets like always for different types of gems as well.

If you wanna complete the look of the “Cross my fingers and hope to die” set with matching fingernails I can suggest the “Rave Pink” nails also made by Finesmith Designs

For me they matched perfect to the new “Cross my fingers and hope to die” jewelry set 😉 So, make your way to the Finsmith Designs Mainstore and see all of the great new creations that yula Finesmith lately designed… I sweat it is worth it 😉 Thanks again yula for the great opportunity to be on the ad for this amazing set 🙂

Adorable news by PurpleMoon!

Last days I had a very elegant parcel brought by the postman… the look was very familiar and I was shivering because of excitement and happyness… the parcel was from Poulet Koenkamp, designer of PurpleMoon. I could not wait and run back into my livingroom and openend the big box… took the outfit and was holding it in front of my body looking into the mirror… AMAZING!!!

I could not wait anymore and put it on, again looking at myself in the mirror. “Marilyn” in the color sapphire, such a breathtaking awesome gown. I saw a little letter in that box and grabbed it still exploring the amazing fabrics of that new blue gown with my fingertips.

“Hello ladies!
We’ve got a new lovely gown today. I was asked to design two gowns for the GLANCE Fashion Awards 2011 Ceremony. It was an honor to design these gowns for two beautiful ladies, Patty Cortes and HoneyBear Lilliehook.
They said “red carpet” and “ruffles” and this gown came up, I named it “Marilyn” as a tribute to the sexy woman and fashion icon, Marilyn Monroe.
Patty Cortes decide to wear this gown in red and I added another 5 colors. I hope you like and enjoy this gown. There is also a demo version of the skirt available to try before buying it. Being a sculpted skirt I thought it would be handy to get to see how it fits.
The second gown I made for this ceremony will come soon!”

I read Poulet’s words and smiled… yes this gown really was made for a red carpet! The shoulderfree gown gives enough room for an amazing necklace and I chose to try the “Inspiration Celestial” set from Finesmith Designs. This set perfectly matched with this elegnat gown. With the silver of the jewerly I could repeat lightly the amazing sparklinig textures, that were added to the gown, for example on the right hips. The skirt is shorter and lightly open in the front so that your sexy long legs are showcased in a wonderful elegant way. For the backpart you have a wonderful train looking part that goes down till it nearly reaches the floor. The folds and ruffles are beautiful made and give the whole gown a very realsitic and dynamic touch. To see all the other great colors you can purchase that gown… you better make your way to the PurpleMoon Mainstore 🙂

A long red dress with a deep neckline,  that shows your wonderful cleavage;-), and long floating arms with amazing long “shawls” on the wrist. Every “shawl” has to patrs one black laced and one with an opaque texture that starts in red and goes to a wonderful ornamented green, red and white part with an asian design. This is repeated in the front of the long skirt again.

The back of the skirt is made of an amazing red velvet texture. From this view you also can see the great transparent high belt that covers nearly the whole waist. The back of the top has a beautiful whole that gives a very sexy look on the back…and we can see even a back can be bautiful 😉

 

For this sweet asian look I was searching for a special jewelry, as the fate (named Harlee Lane) lead my way to Jacon Cortes.

Scary Secrets…do you dare?

alpha-tribe-natural-things-v-2-002

In the year 4010 – the human beings are totally under control of the machines. Only a very little goup of humans hide in the underground of the Opium Sim and fight for their lives. Only in the night they can come out and breathe some fresh air… all day long the have to hide themselves in the old sewage system that is very deep under the earth, where the radars of the machines cannot find them.

One night they nachines caught one of their girls and they worked on a plan to free her from the bad creatures…

Then 5 days later the night of the night of the rescue came… They left their hiding place and crawled trough the bad smelling old pipework up to the night. All was planed very good and they made their way trough the city to an old abandoned garden, where the missing girl was last seen 3 nights before by the 2 of them.

They made their way carfully in the shadows not to be seen by the searchlights, or the radars of the machines. Close to the city walls and the desert houses they sneaked until the reached the target.

And old left flat… in the abandoned gardens at the park of the Opium Sim. They tried quietly to reach that old decayed shanty where they saw the girl captured 3 days before. They opened the door and tried with a small flashlight to see the girl… and they were left speechless by what they saw…

alpha-tribe-natural-things-v-2-003

A “thing” half human and half machine… the silhouette the only reminder that this was their missing girl… The creature turned around and only the broken sad green eyes showed the reminents of a human being… she opened her mouth and a bad electronic noise came out. She tried it again and again and as her friends came closer suddenly it came out something that was hard to understand: “No, do not come closer please!” She breathed again with a terrible noise before she continued to try talking “Don’t try to free me… they experimented on me… and on the 4th or 5th….” Suddenly they heard a noise from outside…they did not catch the rest of what she was saying as they were already out the door running for their secret hide-out…

If you wanna know… and if you dare… come again to the Opium Sim on the 4th and 5th of february and see what the girl was talking about!
