My personal favourites of MVW2013 – National Costume of Miss Italy 2013 by [AD] Creations

MVW - Miss Italy National Full

Miss Virtual World 2013 โ€“ Again BoSL showcased an amazing event on December the 15th 2013, with the finale of the MVW 2013 contest. Many countries were represented by amazing ladies and it was really an exciting event. Designers and models worked together for their 2 final looks. One evening gown and one national costume for each lady. Every year when I saw the MVW finale it was an exciting moment to see the results, that designers and models worked on for so many weeks. Last year I took the challenge to make a full catalogue of all the gowns and costumes. The idea must have inspired some bloggers this year and they started to do that for the MVW 2013 designs. I decided for my own not to do the same again and just would like to showcase my personal favourites. First I thought about to do my personal top 12, but then I figured that I like more than 12 and just thought about doing all the ones that really caught my attention in no particular order :)

The italian community was always very strong represented in many MVW challenges… like we had Mimmi Boa 2009 winning the crown, Mavi Beck in 2010 in the top 10,ย Angels Milena in 2011 in the top 12 and Anna Sapphire as winner of the MVW 2012 crown and again Italy was able to place on the winner stairs with a 1st runner-up in 2013!

Now come to one costume where I had a bit of background information from our Miss Italy 2013, Miss Natzuka Miliandrovic. She is originally from Venice in Italy and I really like if models try to represent their own home country. But Nat even went a step further and chose 2 italian designers as well for her 2 gowns. The national costume was made by Aliza Karu, owner and designer of [AD] creations. Since the costume did not have the typical italian colors.. what mostly are considered red, green and white like the flag… I asked Nat what the inspiration was for her national gown and what she said really kinda touched my heart…

Natzuka Miliandrovic:

“It does not make any sense, the one who knows you and does not love you, Italy.”
This was the feeling expressed by “Vincenzo Monti” and that represents the italian Renaissance, the historical period that redefined Italy and its artistic and politic identity in Europe. The inspiration from this national costume by Aliza Karu, comes from the desire and expectation of a modern cultural and artistic rebirth of my country.ย  The costume is a quotations of the incredible work of art of “Antonio Canova”, the venetian sculpture that is one the symbols of the italian Renaissance. The dress flow softly in its precious textures and transparencies and it reminds the voluptuous mediterranean women portrayed by Canova, with a particular referral to his sculpture “La venere italica” of which was said “It flatters the paradise in this valley of tears” and that clearly explain that the meaning of the beauty, in Italy, it doesn’t lie in an empty admiration, but it’s a need for comfort the soul.”

The very artistic “Miss Nat” gown is partwise mesh made and as well has flexible prims. The sheer top gives a very sexy touch to the very elegant and artistic rest of the design. The shoulder part with the chain over the right shoulder that holds the little jewelry part is a great contrast to the ruffled arm part on the left side. The ruffles are repeated in the back for the amazing train and the little shining silver decorations you will find again on the wonderful skirt. The incredible head-piece, the wonderful tiara that as well carries the silver and the ruffles is part of the beautiful “Miss Nat” dress as well.

To get your “Miss Nat” gown you just have to visit the [AD] Creations Mainstore, as far as I know, it is now available there ๐Ÿ˜‰

Today I have the pleasure to continue my personal favourites with the national costume of Miss V Ireland 2013, Miss Sessie 16. The amazing designer behind this wonderful design is Enzo Champagne, owner and designer of Champagne! Sparkling Couture.

The “Celtic Ireland” outfit is made as a full outfit with all jewelry and accessories. The only parts I had to add was hair, skin, makeup, shoes and nails. he green color stands for Ireland. The green gains impact in combination with its complementary colour orange.

The golden celtic ornaments on the arm parts complete the perfect traditional look of the whole dress.

Sessie16:

“After much research into Ireland, I came to realize there isn’t a national costume for them. So I decided to look up more modern gowns models have worn in pageants when I came across a gown wore by Rebecca Maguire Miss Ireland for 2012, which is very much Celtic representing the beautiful country Ireland.”

The huge back accessory, earrings, headpiece, armlets and as well the wonderful belt with some typical irish accessories are part of the “Celtic Ireland” outfit. It seems Enzo and Sessie did a lot of research for the national costume and created an amazing fashionable dress for the MVW 2013 competition ๐Ÿ™‚ The “Celtic Ireland” is now available at the Champagne!

My personal favourites of the MVW 2013 – National Costume of Miss Turkey by Tres Beau & Chop Zuey

MVW - Miss Turkey National Full

Miss Virtual World 2013 – Again BoSL showcased an amazing event on December the 15th 2013, with the finale of the MVW 2013 contest. Many countries were represented by amazing ladies and it was really an exciting event. Designers and models worked together for their 2 final looks.

First I thought about to do my personal top 12, but then I figured that I like more than 12 and just thought about doing all the ones that really caught my attention in no particular order ๐Ÿ™‚

Today I would like to start with the national costume of Miss V Turkey 2013. The “Miss Turkey 2013” gown was made by Kimmera Madison, owner and designer of Tres Beau. Tres Beau is one of the designers that contributes creations to the Miss Virtual World finale for years. What always amazes me on the Tres Beau national costumes, is that it seems Kimmer Madison does a hell of research for each country she gets asked. The colors, the textures, the designs are always go along the real traditional clothing of the respective country. The “Miss Turkey 2013” costume is textured with wonderful filigree and rich colors of gold and red. The wonderful ornaments show the love and the eye for the detail Kimmera puts on her creations. The body part of the gown is made of a wonderful mesh prim that you will get in different sizes to make sure it fits your shape as well. The wonderful flexible parts of the skirt and arms give the whole creation a typical traditional, oriental and turkish look. If you take a closer look of the 2 pictures you will see a difference for the headpiece. I wanted to showcase the gown with all its parts and as well the whole jewelry set, that Miss Nice Wildrose was wearing for the finale.

Nice Wildrose:

“My inspiration for my national look is Hurrem Sultan, the wife of Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent who played an important role in the Ottoman history and was an influential figure for the women of Harem and other denizens of the palace.”

The “Hurrem” jewelry was made by Belle Roussel, owner and designer of Chop Zuey. Belle created a wonderful set of earrings, necklace, tiara and ring. The tiara is made with 2 parts, you just add the one attachment over the other. The combination of the gold metal with the white, red, green and black gems matches the costume perfectly. Each part is made of so many single prims, that you just can imagine how long Belle had to sit at her workshop to put all of these together ๐Ÿ™‚

You can get the “Miss Turkey 2013” costume at the Tres Beau Mainstore and the “Hurrem” jewelry you will find at the Chop Zuey Mainstore.

I would like to lead your view on the hair I chose for this post. The “Desireme” hair was made by Leah McCullough. Leah reactivated her brand Naive and you can buy already a few different items including this hair style on Marketplace. The “Desireme” hair is available in 8 different colors. Leah made the hair modify so that you can change the color or the texture to your own likings. For the colors she provides she made hairbases as well, wich you can as well recolor to match the hair style.

For sure her amazing skills for designing let her do something very special. The “Miss Canada” gown combines a lot of different fabrics. The shining clothing layers, that glitters and shines with every sunbeam that it kisses it, the huge fluffy fur parts on the great coat with the hoodie hanging down in the back and the little snowflakes that hang down from the waist in the front on long, filigree and flexible lines and all the awesome snowflakes and ice crystals that make the huge head-piece, the decoration of the coat and the jewelry itself.

The upper part includes one pice on the left side th looks like a part of a laurel wreathย  in gold and the right side again repeats the greek colors black and blue.

Honey, for me always stood for extravagant and extraordinary with her designs. And she stayedย  herself true and created a wonderful evening gown for Miss Aphrodite Brianna, Miss Iceland 2012.

The huge skirt adds a very elegant touch and all the amazing golden decorations on the gown really made this gown something that stood out. The texturing and the choice of the prims again shows very clear the sign of Honey Bender. All the sequins that decorate the upper skirt… shiny and in many shades of purple… simply amazing.
