Disarranged…

The picture exactly shows how I feel sometimes… Totally disarranged but… somehow still interesting*laughs*

Did you ever came across such a situation where you had something in mind, started to style for your idea and for whatever reason, the whole concept fell and was replaced by a complete different idea? It happens to me so often…

When I started to dress for this post, I had a military style in mind with the “Orsay” dress, but then I remembered the cool puppet hanger from Curio Obscura and the same time [Gos] released their “Natalie” ankle boots and all of a sudden my idea changed to something complete different. The first idea only had the dress in the focus and then I got shoes that matched so wonderful so I had to find an idea where i can showcase the dress AND the shoes πŸ˜‰

Recently I had to re-think my idea for shoe posts as I did not like the “closeup only” pictures of shoes and accessories. I wanted something that still would allow more than just one part of the body in the picture and so I started experimenting a lot with crazy poses, crouch poses and certain sit and kneel poses. Sometimes it becomes more editorial looking and sometimes it just falls in place to a cool picture with the right angle. It is really fun the more you dare to fool around with poses and angles. Sometimes it just looks weird but if you just try a little more and not be afraid of crazy ideas it becomes way more exciting and interesting.

I will try to play more with those kid of ideas in the future and hope you will enjoy the results as much as I do πŸ˜‰ Thanks a lot for reading!

Golden Dreams with Enfant Terrible

Enfant Terrible Full

I am very happy that I may showcase some news from Enfant Terrible.

With all her new releases it was a hard decision, what to blog first.

I decided to star with the new “Moonchild”set. It’s parts are all part of a gacha. You will find 3 different colors for all the items in the gacha – gold, black & white. The common prizes are 3 animated butterflies, the amazing nose chain and a matching necklace wich I changed in this post for another new release of Enfant Terrible, the unisex “Caelens Armor” chest part in gold.

The rare items for that fantastic gacha of Enfant Terrible are the wonderful crowns as well in 3 colors and for the 3 ultra rare items we have the incredible staffs in the shape of a moon.

For the basic outfit to underline the golden dream I chose the “Karolina” bodysuit in gold from Countdown.

I am sure will have fun playing that gacha!

MVW 2012: Evening Gown for Miss Turkey 2012 by Tres Beau

The wonderful evening gown of Miss Turkey 2012Miss Xandrah Sciavo – was made again of our genius Kimmera Madison, owner and incredible designer of Tres Beau. Kimmera seems like a barrel with no bottom for wonderful ideas of designing and textures. Not one of her gowns – and there were quite a few – of the Miss Virtual 2012 finales looked even close to the other, neither in design or color or textures or prims. The beautiful “Miss Xandrah” gown is a very elegant and shiny design with the amazing prims of the skirt. The skirt looks close to a mermaid skirt but does not start that deep as we know it usually from mermaid dresses. The first layer of fabrics that is made of feathers starts round the knees and it flows in an awesome bigger skirt part that looks more solid but still very aerial. The mixture of this 2 very different fabrics again shows how great are Kimmera’s skills in ideas and designs. The bodice is made very filigree with a shining fabric and wonderful dark ornaments. If you take a closer look you can see that this ornaments are delicious gemstones that are repeated in the earrings and the necklace as well. Talking of the jewelry… the awesome set is part of the gown and as well made by Tres Beau!!! The mixture of the dark gems and the white pearls is just the perfect jewelry for this amazing gown and I really love the idea to have the gemstones as a decoration for the bodice of the gown as well. It gives such an overall round and just perfect look. The amazing headpiece made out of filigree and aerial feathers just gives the little extra sophisticated touch to the “Miss Xandrah” gown. I like the idea of the side, non symmetric placed attachment for the hair. So do no think too long… be honest with yourself, you must have this amazing elegant and sophisticated gown for your personal wardrobe πŸ˜‰ Hurry over to Tres Beau and get yours πŸ˜‰

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

Today I would like to take a closer look in the national gown of Miss Panama 2012, Miss Mely Gibbs. The fantastic “Miss Panama”costume was made by Kimmera Madison, yes again a Miss Virtual World 2012 design by Tres Beau πŸ˜‰

I was thinking by myself, if I could think about something typical for
Panama, and I was not really able to. I tried to google a bit and found a few traditional costumes, that looked very close to the one Tres Beau did. Again was impressed on the research, Kimmera did to create this incredible and adorable costume. Panama is the southernmost country of Central America, and many different cultures and influences got settled down there. To get the exact information about that I recommend to take a look at Wikipedia, what I did too and why I should just copy information you can read at the place where it came from ;p (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Panama) But I saw a lot of indian influences as well and some of those looked very close to the one Kimmera did πŸ™‚ She really put a lot of work, love and eye for the detail on this costume. All this different fabrics like metal, feathers, delicate fabrics for the clothing layers… for me a again a masterpiece of art. First, as I put on that gown, I thought ‘omg how can I ever find a pose for that huge gown?!?’ but I have to admit it was not that hard as I thought of… I kinda think Kimmera knows about that and she designs even the most huge looking gowns and costumes and you still can find poses to showcase them. The attachment points are chosen so very well that the gown moves naturally with every inch you move by yourself. For me that just underlines, that Tres Beau is one of the most popular and everlasting brands in SL for a reason πŸ˜‰ “Miss Panama” is now available at the Tres Beau Mainstore.

Miss Mely Gibbs chose an already existing set from Finesmith to complete her look. The “Coral Blossom” set sets an awesome blue accent as well with the necklace, the wonderful earrings and the stunning face ornament. All the wonderful round shaped gems picked up the theme for me and I think it was a good choices for the beautiful “Miss Panama” costume. Normally you have an awesome tiara as well that is included in the “Choral Blossom” it just would have got lost under that huge headpiece of the “Miss Panama” costume πŸ˜‰ The “Coral Blossom” set you will find in different colors as well at the Finesmith Mainstore.

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! πŸ˜‰ 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.
