SAS – Sascha’s Design: “Essence”

Again I have wonderful news of Sascha’s Design today. This stunning black gown is called “Essence” and as always for SAS designs you have various versions do wear this wonderful gown. For this creation you have 4 different skirts to choose from. For today I would like to show you 2 very different of them. The long fluffer skirt, that you can see above and the beautiful hipswirl version below πŸ˜‰

“Essence” shows the great skills of Sascha Frangilli, when it comes to elegant evening designs. The clothing layers are made very detailed and the huge shoulder part adds a lot of glamour to the whole gown. The mixture of the silver flowers and the black sharp flexible and sheer prims in the back… stunning.

For the hair I chose something very special. One of the latest creations of Mysterious Mystica, owner and designer of Bizarre Hair. “Chanel” this hairstyle is called and it comes with the matching earrings to the hair jewelry. The hairstyle basically I would call an elegant hairstyle… but with a twist to become something special. I like it a lot of it is not just common elegant and has the special little something that makes it unique. The hair is fully scripted and you can change the color to 7 different ones. The matching hairbases are included in the pack as well. Some of the Bizarre hairstyles even have some special features like little attachments you can get over the menu..

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

The amazing and very artistic national gown for Miss Australia 2012 was made by Kimmera Madison, genius designer of Tres Beau. This gown is a total piece of art and a real outstanding design. The inspiration for this awesome creations was the Great Barrier Reef of Australia. Kimmera brought it on the runway with this incredible design. What you sadly can not see on the picture is the floating water texture that covers parts of the skirt. You really get the imagination or water that is running down the skirt again and again like a little waterfall that Miss Rissa Friller, Miss Australia 2012 carried around. Now available for everyone, you will find the “Miss Australia 2012” gown at the Tres Beau Mainstore.

To make the imagination of the living Great Barrier Reef perfect, Kimmera added certain parts out of the ocean, like seashells, fishes, little nemos, corals, and anemones for the back part and the huge head piece. This gown perfectly shows the skills and knowhow of Kimmera Madison. Her ideas and the ability to create exactly what she has in mind and her awesome textures and prims, make her so popular for such a long time. That maybe explains why most of the MVW candidates find their ways to Tres Beau for their gowns and costumes. For this year “Miss Australia 2012” was one of the 2 gowns from Tres Beau, that brought Miss Rissa Friller the 1st runner-up for Miss Virtual World 2012!

The jewelry for Miss Australia 2012 for sure came from Finesmith. Rissa was the Face of Finesmith for 2011 and so for sure yula made the jewelry for both of her gowns. The “Oceania” set was made for her national costume and it as well takes the theme of the Great Barrier Reef. The earrings, bracelet and ring carry as well seashells, corrals paired with awesome noble metals and gems. Matching nails for the “Oceania” set were the “Ocean” nails as well from Finesmith. Both you will find at the Finesmith Mainstore πŸ™‚

H.O.R. – House of Rage opens the doors with “Evolution”!!!

I got the great opportunity to show you – right before the upcoming event (points above) – 2 of the new gowns of House of Rage, that are part of the “Evolution” line.

The first one would be “Lorna”. A wonderful, delicate and classy black shaded, high fashion gown.

The awesome detailed made feathers, are a special highlight on this gown. As you can see black has not to be black. All the great lights and shadows, show the ability of texturing and design that you will find in every outfit of the “Evolution” line. The feathers are dreamy flexible and you will turn heads if you walk this gown over the red carpet or any other event you choose to wear it πŸ™‚

A perfect addition for this stunning evening gown were the new “Core” jewelry set from Finesmith Design the fresh and sharp edges and the pearls made a perfect finish for me πŸ™‚

My second gown for today would be “Vila”…

“Vila” goes more in a sexy and couture direction, but even then you will see the high qualityΒ  what this gown is made with. “Vila” is a mixture of so many different fabrics, that you have to take more then one look to discover all the amazing details. The corset is an opaque, tight black basic. If you zoom closer, you can see the amazing ornaments that decorate even the corset.

The bodice is made of beautiful lace and the sheer character adds a very sexy and young, modern touch. The skirt, as well a sheer fabric glimmers and sparkles in an awesome way. As additional decoration you have a wonderful lace prim for the right shoulder and the head also. For this amazing dress I chose as well one of the latest releases from Finesmith Design, called “Optimism”. Yula Finesmith released 7 pairs of earrings a few days ago and yesterday the matching necklaces… so run and see them all at the Mainstore πŸ˜‰

To see more of the incredible and georgious new designs of the H.O.R. “Evolution” line you should make your way to the upcoming event at 4PM, as well as to the House of Rage Mainstore, where you can find many many other wonderful designs of the 3 amazing ladies Lybra Rage, Topaz Joubert and LovelyMiwako7399 Menna.

Wonderful dark news by Ezura!!!

Right in time for Halloween,Β  Ezura released a stunning dark goth gown, the “Marceline”gown. Sure, not only to use for Halloween but it would fit for that as well perfectly πŸ˜‰

The gown has a very classy and elegant touch. The mixture of the floating and shining skirt goes perfectly to the ornamented fabric of the top. The huge neckcollar has wonderful tentacles that fawn awesome over the cleavage. What caught my eyes are the 2 cool skulls that make the shoulder parts. round the hips we have some cute ruffles that make a perfect contrast to the skills and tentacles and add a lightly playful touch. The gown has various possibilities to be worn for the skirt part.

Version number one, has a long skirt and this incredible tentacles at the bottom. The skirt reaches the floor and with the tentacles it nearly looks as you hover over the floor a bit and gives a little mystical touch.

For sure a mermaid skirt version cannot miss for this elegant gown.Β  Just take the tentacles off and you have a very sophisticated skirt that will be totally perfect for every kind of sophisticated event πŸ™‚ You even could remove the huge neckcollar and only wear the top tentacles, but I am so in love with it so I just could not take it off :p

If you like it even more classy you can wear the long skirt that starts from the hips and goes more and more wide till it reaches the bottom. The gloves are as well part of the outfit. If you wanna keep it very simple you just take off all skirt prims and wear the skirt layer only. The gown can be purchased in black like you see it in the post or even in red and purple.

The incredible beautiful horns can be part of your dark queen outfit as well. Named like the dress the “Marceline” horns match awesome to the dress and adda again some more darkness and goth. Little skulls underline the theme and they are made with such love for the detail, so we again can say how much time and love Ezura puts in her creations.

What could match better to such an amazing gown as the “Noir” jewelry set from Finesmith Design. The shape of the earrings and the collar goes perfect with the tentacles of the “Marceleine gown!

You do not have a Halloween outfit yes and already invited to a great party? Make your way to the Ezura Mainstore and you will find the perfect outfit for you I am sure πŸ˜‰

(Shoe: Mea Culpa – “Matrix”, Model & Photographer: Wicca Merlin)

As I promised… here is the second part of the last Mea Culpa shoe mania! Tatanka Kaligawa increased our ladies shoe paradise with new designs and ideas all around our feet πŸ˜‰

(Shoe: Mea Culpa – “Matrix”, Model & Photographer: Wicca Merlin)

The “Matrix” shoes captivate with their great and unusual heels. High heels with an amazing metal part that connects the heel to the sole. The basic shoe is made with a simple but amazing detailed texture and neat details. Wonderful sculpted toes with colorable nails in every color with the HUD that comes with, tiny little lines that connect the 2 big fabric parts that cover the foot with that amazing folds that make the whole shoe very realistic. You can change the main color to all colors you want with the big color matching field as well as you can match the skin of the foot itself to match yours.

(Shoe: Mea Culpa – “Overdose”, Model & Photographer: Wicca Merlin)

Elegant and extravagant? No problem with the “Overdose” shoes. Very filigree the mixture of lace and opaque texture goes over the whole foot. Sweet little accessories with a sharp character decorate the “little blacks” in an extraordinary way. If you want a special pair of shoes for your little black dress… the “Overdose” heels of Mea Culpa are the right choice.

(Shoe: Mea Culpa – “Darkness”, Model & Photographer: Wicca Merlin)

Or you go for the “Darkness” ones. Also great for every outfit but maybe a little bit more ‘sexy’ as the “Overdose”. The “Darkness” heels have a more opaque character and the shining black texture surrounds nearly the whole feet, just toes and back feet are free for the typical sexy high heel look. The white ornaments give an awesome touch to the whole design.

(Shoe: Mea Culpa – “Zen”, Model & Photographer: Wicca Merlin)

Now we step on the asia path with the “Zen” shoes. The sweet golden dragon on the wooden heels give a cute basic for the perfect asian look. The ornaments on the fabric add even more asian feeling.

(Shoe: Mea Culpa – “Zen”, Model & Photographer: Wicca Merlin)

With the HUD you can match your skin, and color the nails in all colors you can think on with the big color field. Also the HUD has 5 pre-made colors for the basic texture as you can see in the pics above.

(Shoe: Mea Culpa – “Vamp”, Model & Photographer: Wicca Merlin)

“Vamp” is the playful one in this post. Fully made of lace you feet are totally covered except the toes and the back feet.

(Shoe: Mea Culpa – “Vamp”, Model & Photographer: Wicca Merlin)

Little silver ornaments decorate the shoes at the ankle and the sides. The heel itself has an amazing texture too. Another silver line that goes left and right down the feet. The main color can be changed with the usual color field of the HUD as well as the toe nails.

(Shoe: Mea Culpa – “Joker”, Model & Photographer: Wicca Merlin)

The last pair for today are the “Joker” ones. The main color is always parted in white and one of the 6 colors (black, red, blue, green, purple, gold & grey)

(Shoe: Mea Culpa – “Joker”, Model & Photographer: Wicca Merlin)

A very cool feature you have on the back of the heel… the line that goes down the heel can be colored in every color you can think with the HUD as well as the nails and the skin.

(Shoe: Mea Culpa – “Joker”, Model & Photographer: Wicca Merlin)

The squared part always keeps the white squares and you can change the colored ones to black , red, pink purple or blue. The nail colors can be changed via the HUD to every color you desire also the outside flowers! Even Huey Lewis & the News had know about the fact “It is hip to be square!” back in the 80’s πŸ˜‰

“Mailindi” points with its sexy animal prints. The HUD allows you to change the texture between those wonderful 4 different animal prints. The wooden looking great block heel gives the shoes a wonderful and sexy overall look that not looks like “usual” With the HUD you also can match your bare foot perfectly to you r skin.
