MVW 2012: Evening Gown for Miss Germany 2012 by PurpleMoon & Finesmith

As I said in one of my last posts, PurpleMoon did not have only one gown that made the Top 12 of this year Miss Virtual World Challenge. In complete 4 of Poulet Koenkamp’s gowns made it into the Top 12 this year and the evening gown of Miss Germany 2012 is number 3 on my blog for now… be sure number 4 will follow as well ๐Ÿ˜‰ For me it is a very special gown as Falbala Fairey, who carries the title of Miss Germany 2012 is a very special person to me, she is my little sister and I am feeling very honored to showcase the gown of PurpleMoon that was made for her, as well the awesome jewelry yula Finesmith did for her. For gown and jewelry you can see how close designers are working together to create the MVW dresses. Poulet did this amazing gown, covering the colors of the german flag, which are black, red and gold, in an amazing way. The tight gown accents the well-shaped body perfectly and the extraordinary prims give some awesome highlights. again we can see Poulet’s love for th detail on the “Falbala” gown. The huge shoulder prim on the right shoulder is made with the red outside and a gold inside, as well the upper parts of the gloves have this awesome little feature. Half of the chest part glitters in gold and the other is covered by the delicate red satin texture. I totally love that none symmetric style. Now for the jewelry… yula Finesmith did an extraordinary job this year for all the MVW candidates that stormed her doors… if I look over all the gowns and jewelry I got, it seems she was the most busy designer for jewelry this year ๐Ÿ˜‰ and that for a reason… she just is amazing, a wonderful person to work with and she is great in making dreams come true ๐Ÿ˜‰ The “Falbala” set is an incredible masterpiece of art. The filigree earrings, the delicate necklace that goes down in the back and decorates the deep back neckline of the “Falbala” gown… simply amazing. Then the little orchid shaped flowers at the hips that carry those long and thin lines that go to the upper right and the repeat of this orchid shape for the bracelet… it just caught my heart totally! The “Falbala”gown you will find at the PurpleMoon Mainstore in different colors as well as far as I know Poulet, and the “Falbala” jewelry set you will find at the MVW room at the Finesmith Mainstore.

MVW 2012: National Gown for Miss South Korea 2012 by PurpleMoon

PurpleMoon made not just of the gowns, that made it into the Top 12 of this years Miss Virtual World Challenge finalists. The national gown of Miss South Korea, Caoimhe Lionheard was another one :). This amazing “Sa-rang” gown has a very filigree and delicate texture that is perfectly brought on that amazing sculpted skirt. The trees are a typical asian ornament that we all know from a lot of asian pictures, asia porcelain and as well room dividers and other furniture. The color underlines the asia theme in a wonderful way. The huge black ribbon reminds me of the big ribbons I saw a lot of times at the back of kimonos as well, but it also adds a wonderful modern touch. The tassel that goes down from that ribbon again shows the amazing eye for the detail Poulet Koenkamp has if it comes to ideas and design. If you take a look at the amazing hair, it was as well made by PurpleMoon and is part of that gorgeous gown. The hair is a firework of prims and textures and a piece of art itself. The mixture of hair, jewelry and ornaments just gives an imagination how long Poulet must have sat on this awesome ensemble, which now is available at the PurpleMoon Mainstore.
