My personal favourites of MVW2013 – National Costume of Miss Ireland 2013 by Champagne! Sparkling Couture

MVW - Miss Ireland 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 :)

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 πŸ™‚ The “Celtic Ireland” is now available at the Champagne! Sparkling Couture Mainstore.

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.

PosESioN for the Pimp my Valentine Hunt

8333227293_a19f3c1a5e_b

PosESioN made a wonderful couple pose for the “Pimp my Valentine Hunt“. “Mon Amour” is a very emotional and sensitive pose and I felt very honored and super happy, that Dahriel asked me to pose with him for this amazing creation. I was working on some new blog pictures as my sweet brother jumped into my IMs and asked me to help him to adjust a new pose and as soon as I saw it, I really loved it. He has such a talent to catch emotions and atmospheres with his couple and group poses… simply amazing. Then a few minutes later he asked me if I would pose with him for the vendor picture and with this … he made a dream come true for me. I asked him if he would have something in mind for a styling he wanted to have and the only thing he said was … “maybe red.. it is for a valentine hunt”… I decided to go for an outfits with less prims as huge large prims would just overdo this amazing post. I remembered that LeeZu had a great collection released sometime ago and with a combination of a few of them it made the perfect look to match the elegant and couture outfit that Dahriel was wearing πŸ˜‰

Again thank you bro for doing this with me πŸ˜‰
