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. 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 πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚

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.

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

Today I would like to show case the incredible national costume of Miss Turkey 2012, Miss Xandrah Sciavo. With this amazing firework of textures, prims, fabrics and colors, Kimmera Madison worked out an art work for Tres Beau. Again Kimmera proved that she really takes it serious if models come and ask her for the national costumes for Miss Virtual World. She takes a great effort to research the typical elements and colors of the country she makes the dress for. If you google about traditional outfits of Turkey, you will find many designs that come very close to what Kimmera created. The colors, the shape of the prims and the combination of laced, sheer and opaque parts… super awesome. If you take a look on all the ornaments that decorate this stunning dress… the little chain parts and decorations at the belt, the wonderful chest part with the coins that are made as prim parts, you only can imagine how long Kimmera sat on this piece of art. The head-piece as well is part of the outfit with the beautiful decoration at the right front side. Talking of chains and coins, the jewelry of this great outfit as well is part of it if you purchase it at Tres Beau. Kimmera as well made the effort to create the perfect matching jewelry to this outfit. The cute earrings with the little bells as well are typical for the country and it’s belly dancers πŸ˜‰ The huge necklace combines gems and noble metals with a leather line in an amazing way. Again we can see, that Kimmera really has an eye for the detail. This as well made her to one of the most popular designers in SL and the SL Fashion world I guess πŸ˜‰ If an outfit is not just made of its basics, even if they are great, then you can see how much a designer puts in to his creations and this little details mostly make those outfits so special and unique then πŸ™‚ If you make your way to the Tres Beau Mainstore you can get your “Miss Turkey” and feel like an oriental princess πŸ™‚

I tried to find a nice pose for this amazing outfit but no pose wanted to do what I had in mind, or the different parts of the outfit were hidden, so the one I used is my first one, I made on my own*dances around* Basically I have to thank Kimmera for this dress that finally put me making my own poses as well πŸ™‚

Incredible mystical new outfit at Mea Culpa!!!

Mea Culpa brought news to the fashion world… amazing and incredible news for sure πŸ˜‰Β Β  Tatanka Kaligawa designed again a masterpiece of fashion that has its very own character.

“Oppressive Prophecy” comes as a whole outfit except the shoes. It is fully hold in gold and black and the textures are simply amazing. Golden ornaments on a back background always give a very elegant and glamorous touch.

Also the dress is very sexy and stunning with all the parts that show so much skin and who are framed by amazing golden seams! The lower arms are covered by some kinda armshields. ‘The theme is repeated with the 2 huge prims that are attached to the waist and go up from there.

A total eyecatcher is the headpart with the 2 long piercings that hang down in front and male earrings redundant.

The 2 big fan looking decorations on the left hip and in the back are a wonderful contrast to that long spike looking prims on the right side. The flexible train that goes down on the right side from that big back attachment gives a very aerial feeling as it moves wonderful with every step.

Black Gypsy meets Dark Goddess

Silks can be very sexy and do not have to be only for oriental use πŸ˜‰

Angelwing makes very stunning and seductive ones and I am happy to show you 2 of her creations today…

The first one carries the name “Black Gypsy Silks”. A short bikini top that is hold together by a nice metal ring in the middle of the chest. The arms are covered by long laced gloves and amazing attachments make the special “silkoutfit” touch. The skirt starts with a short skirt and goes down in the typical parted silk manner.

All the great jewelry you can see on the outfit, necklace, ankle chains, head pice and bangles, are part of the outfit!

The same counts for our next outfit, it also comes with all you can see except skin, hair and shoes πŸ˜‰

The “Dark Goddess Silks” are shorter and show a bot more skin maybe;)

The top is made of a bit more fabric then the first silk we saw, but with all the holes it gets a very sexy touch πŸ˜‰ The skirt parts are a bit shorter and in a light grey. But also this silks ghave the stunning attachment parts that flatter with every step or dance that you do πŸ˜‰

I have to admit… it will be not the last time I was wearing that silks πŸ˜‰
