Mayden Ushimawa: “To make these clothes I thought the nightmares, fear and darkness.
I thought of a married couple dead, also united in the afterlife. He will own her heart forever.


I had fun creating these dresses and I freed my imagination! every day I had new ideas for the clothes and new details to add. Blood and disgusting elements are predominant! ”

Thetra Blackheart:” Hail to the queen of darkness when she wears the Nimue!  Intricate  lines, thick velvets, lace and all the  fine details make this dress of royalty among the damned.  The lining of this gorgeous outfit is of fine silk.  Embroidered detail along the outfit makes for  a view  that keeps giving.  The bustle accentuates the womans shape and the low-cut bodice entices the onlooker to gaze and become entranced while willingly fall victim to her every whim.

Lestat will allure anyone to get close and personal.  Dark or not the admirer will not be able to resist the look this outfit possesses.  The finesse, and elegance is balanced with mystery and danger.  The mix of modern goth, old renaissance and a twist of Victorian makes wearing the Lestat an enigma around others. Getting close and personal to the man wearing this is worth  the price to pay.

Marita Overland:”This outfit ensemble is entitled “Underworld” by Runway Couture. Taking a note from the leading lady from the film,Wicca is wearing the female slayer outfit. She is ready to kick some butt in her leather body suit adorned with gold inlay, rubies and chains. The near knee-length boots are matching this ensemble  in black leather and gold inlay and rubies. The short mini skirt with gold chevrons, rubies and chains, are sure to catch that beast off his guard as she slays him with her storm of fire balls.

Harsch  is the target on the slayer’s radar, in his large chest armor and tentacles adorned with gold and leather. His belt sits atop his hybrid bottom half with rubies and gold chain and male silks, matching his arm braces. His claws are long and yellow on both his hands and feet. He wears a face mask. also adorned with matching accents. Even with all his armor he is no match for Wicca Slayer !”

You will find that dress at the “Get your shopping card” board including a 10% discount card for another purchase.

But now let’s have a closer look on the dress I stole out of his laboratory to give you a sneak preview…

This dress is such a sweet idea to celebrate the first birthday of Mea Culpa. The short dress is a shows off very sexy the long legs and the texture of the clothing layers have an awesome shine. It is like you can feel the sun reflecting on each part of the dress. The shoulder prims add a light playful touch and the ornament on the chest make a lovely highlight. The neck collar as well is made as an attached prim. For me the hat is a total eye catcher. It looks like a neat umbrella that is directly worn on the head and so the name of the dress that I could see on a little piece of paper totally first for this design. “Sugar CandyMeaCulpas first anniversary dress is named and I am sure you will not miss it to get your “Sugar Candy” on Thursday the 21st at the Mea Culpa Mainstore!!!

Thetra Blackheart:”RavenNoire  is created for the sensual, classic, and mysterious woman.  The bodice was designed so that it  entices the eye to wonder and explore every  curve and dimension of her being.  The elegance and movement of the dress show great detail its unique design and allow for a trace of mystery and wonder to the woman wearing it.  Shoes are magically matched to the gown  and the hair and accessories make for an elegant outfit that gives the ‘wow’ factor to anyone  who experiences it.”

Mayden Ushimawa:”To make the “Monica” dress I was inspired by a memorable evening of spring. The dominant color is white, this is a pure color and different from the usual formal dress. Lace makes the dress most elegant. The collar with plumes and the flexi skirt gives movement to the dress.

For the “Brian” outfit I took inspiration from the very beautiful RL models, with a perfect body and a face to be kissed all over. For this reason I created this outfit. It gives the impression of a man who has just escaped from a crowd of girls, a bit messy and not even having the time to wear his jacket.”

Marita Overland:”Wicca wears a lovely white gown consisting of a scuplted top and half skirt.  You can’t help but notice the stylish silver armor on the shoulders and waist along with a structured bow in the back.  As if the skirt wasn’t elegant enough, it glitters even more with a second layer of fabric.  The shoes are also included in this romantic, yet edgy, ensemble.

Harsch is wearing the “Romeo” version of the formal wear. A miliary style jacket and pants, in white and gray, are a wonderful compliment to his “Juliet”.  The jacket is adorned with a high collar, cuffs, armored shoulders and belt.  The boots are also included with the outfit you see here.  Seemingly for seeing his own fate, the belt includes the poison he will take his own life with and the dagger Juliet will use to perish herself. True love never looked so stylish.”
