Lexi Vargas for “Claim the Fame” – Week 2 – Formal

For the first week of Claim the Fame the designers had to create a formal attire for male and female and make a description that was read during the TV Show on Metaverse TV. (http://metaversetv.com/blog/2011/04/claim-the-fame-2/)

All designs of the Claim the Fame Shows are available at the KULT District (for surl please click here)

Lexi Vargas, designer ofΒ  Brocade Tiger, brought a neat firework of amazing textures with the “clockwork” couple outfit that was not just formal in my view πŸ˜‰ As well I saw a light steampunk touch in that as well what really touched my soul πŸ˜‰

Lexi Vargas:”‘Lady Clockwork’, a striking formal gown in the Steampunk tradition. A three-layered skirt gives depth with two layers of striped fabric topped with a draped and partially jeweled top layer in the signature clock print fabric. The fitted, square necked bodice is a combination of the striped and print fabrics and the same theme carries into the beautifully shaped and traditionally fitted sleeves embellished with puffs at shoulder, elbow and wrist. The whole ensemble is drawn together by a semi opaque bow and drape effect that makes a dramatic silk waterfall down one side of the gown. Sure to be an eyecatcher at any formal event where Steampunk/Victorian dress is required.

The male model strikes a dashing note in ‘Lord Gear’, a formal outfit that has its roots steeped in Steampunk tradition. There is much attention to detail in this suit. A duel fabric jacket of chocolate leather and striped fabric skims the shoulder line, with the same effect carried into the pants. These clever styling details make for a simply stunning outfit. The jacket lapels and collar are decorated with gears and cogs and the pants with buckles and straps. A cream satin edged shirt with frilled jabot collar and brooch completes the look. This outfit could be worn at any suitable formal occasion enabling the wearer to stand out from the crowd and it would certainly delight any Steampunk gentleman worth his cogs.”

Inga Wind for “Claim the Fame” – Week 2 – Formal

For the first week of Claim the Fame the designers had to create a formal attire for male and female and make a description that was read during the TV Show on Metaverse TV. (http://metaversetv.com/blog/2011/04/claim-the-fame-2/)

All designs of the Claim the Fame Shows are available at the KULT District (for surl please click here)

Inga Wind, Designer of Inga Wind Designs, started with “Penelope” and “Bartelby”, a wonderful details and lovely looking couple outfit.

Inga Wind:”Penelope” is an amazing blue formal dress. The basic is made in a non symmetrical manner that makes a bare right shoulder while the left shoulder is decorated with an amazing detailed sculpted prim. The top layer has a very elegant texture that is broken by an awesome lace stripe that runs diagonal from the right upper to the left hip.
The skirt as well continues the non symmetric look. On the left side it goes further down with a wonderful ornamented sheer texture that is framed by an opaque looking satin border and the left is lightly shorter.
Gloves, shoes and the lovely headpiece come with the whole outfit so you have no trouble to match the right color and look.

“Bartelby” was made to match “Penelope” perfectly. The black basic makes a wonderful tailcoat with amazing flexible prims in the back, where the seams carry the same texture that you already saw on “Penelope” as well the little neat bow tie. The white shirt shows off folds and shadows in a very realistic way. Collar, bow tie, cuffs and Sleeves are made of sculpted prims what ad as well a very realistic touch. The black pants complete the elegant male look and the sash round the waist again shows off the amazing blue texture decorated with filigree ornaments and buttons.
“Penelope” & “Bartelby” are the perfect couple for the perfect couple :)”

The Fallen One…

…or Faster Pussycat goes Cabaret Colore πŸ˜‰

Last sunday we had an amazing show with the Passion Fashion Agency. Leandra Breen did it again and pulled together a real amazing show where we all showcased the new outfits of Faster Pussycat. Honey Bender, designer of Faster Pussycat, always was someone who I felt close to even before her designing days and it was a great pleasure that I was allowed again to wear her designs on the runway. Her designs really touch my soul again and again as they are so innovative and fresh but still fashionable and they allow me to go crazy πŸ˜‰

My first outfit was called “The Caged Beauty” and usually the birds on the skirt were black. But as they are mod you can change the color to whatever you like πŸ™‚ The Show was called Cabaret Colore so color was the key πŸ˜‰ The outfit itself contains the top, the skirt, clothing layer and the head-piece. The rest I mixed and matched together. The skin is the “Lea Gothic” skin made by LionSkins, with a green lipstick from Launa Fauna,Β  the hair comes from 3636 Designs and is called “Tara”. I just colored the platinum one to match the green. The whole jewelry set is the “Ocean Winds” set made by Finesmith Designs. The huge amazing wings are done by Talyia Tarber and as well colored by myself.

The second outfit I was allowed to showcase was the “Hellfire Body Suit”. The outfit itself contains the sexy unsymmetric bodysuit that only hides one chest with an opaque texture while the other side gives a bit more of a view with the sheer part πŸ˜‰ What totally got me are the huge horns that are as well part of the outfit I am so in love with them. The skin I used for is one of the Miasnow “Beautiful Death Beth” ones in red. The hair and hairbase again are from 3636 Designs. Earings from Ticky Tacky, the collar from Finesmith Designs and the cute wings from Material Squirrel completed my look. The shoes you can see in the very first pic above we got from PoosyKat LittleBoots.

It was a totally amazing show and I want to thank all the amazing fellow models and Leandra Breen for an awesome event as well πŸ™‚

DoJo and Body Talking for the Pacific Crisis Fundraiser Project!

Again I found 2 amazing designers that help with their amazing creations for the Pacific Crisis Fundraiser (http://slurl.com/secondlife/World%20of%20Beauty/205/147/1003): DoJo, paper couture made by Sanders Beaumont and Body Talking with the great poses from Arisia Ashmoot!

Lets start with the amazing “Hanami” outfit. In the colors black, red and white this neat dress is a wonderful contribution to such a great charity event! A mixture of girlie look of the dress and as well a little urban look with the leggings that made me fall in love with.

The dress has a basic white texture with amazing and modern black ornaments. The red accents of the seams and as well the wonderful big ribbon in the back, that gives for me a wonderful transition to the asian look. Like the big ribbons in the back of the kimonos πŸ™‚ The black leggings have a few transparent parts and the whole pants are a firework of a texture… I really fell in love with! At the ankles you can see 2 little prims that lead to the amazing shoes, that as well are part of the outfit.

Wonderful red, grey and black peeptoes ankle boots… simply amazing and you are not in trouble to find matching shoes πŸ˜‰ The toes are amazing realistic and the textures of the shoes it self fit perfect to the rest of the outfit. Also part of the “Hanami” outfit are the sweet sticks that you can see at the back of the head in black and red. Over all a must have for each fashionistas wardrobe and for a very good cause as well!!! So do not think about too long this 250L$ are more than worth it and you can help with!!!

I am very happy that I can show you as well, that Body Talking as well joined the helping hands! Arisia Ashmoot a wonderful person with a big heart (yes sissy, that I had to say πŸ˜‰ contributed an amazing group pose to the Pacific Crisis Fundraiser (http://slurl.com/secondlife/World%20of%20Beauty/205/147/1003) project…

(Picture provided by Body Talking)

“Girls Only” the perfect pose for some friends that wanna show that they have fun πŸ˜‰ So girls who wanna have fun go and get the “Girls Only” pose of body talking and help as well with the purchase of this amazing pose that Arisia Ashmoot created. No bad body angles, now weird stretching of parts of the body and no limbs that look like broken. This pose again shows the high standard that Body Talking has for their poses. To get it just make your way to the Pacific Crisis Fundraiser Donation (http://slurl.com/secondlife/World%20of%20Beauty/205/147/1003) sim and search for a pose stand high up in the air close to one of the corners πŸ˜‰

Kitties Alarm at Ash’s Trash!!!

Yes… it is me… in pink*hides her head* but I could not resist after I saw this outfit that I got for the blog. Ashleey Andrew, designer of Ash’s Trash,Β  is one of the finalists of the “Claim the Fame” awards of SL Art Couture and she made her way in with exactly this dress. Unbelievable but true, she put all these little Kitties together and managed to create a look that some of us know maybe from Lady Gaga.

Wonderful sculpted prims are arranged around the body and all have the shape of those neat kitties. You will have a hard time to find the sam kitten twice as all are look different what shows the effort that Ashleey made while she created this extraordinary outfit. From big to small the kitties are stacked from the bottom to the top and even the most little one does not miss the amazing details what shows the love of every little thing that Ashley put in that design. The whole outfits is made of 4 prims you attach and one undershirt layer.

To put the dot on the “i” you can find one single kitty as kinda head decoration. I have to admit I am really impressed, even if it is pink… and I really hate pink usually… this outfit kicked me and I had lots of fun doing this post and I am sure this was not the last time that I was wearing this extraordinary dress πŸ˜‰ I would like to suggest, that you make your way to the Ash’s Trash Mainstore and take a look on her other designs and creations and maybe you find one that you like for yourself πŸ˜‰

Gasqhe and Baiastice for the Pacific Crisis Fundraiser!!!

Today I received the wonderful contribution of gasqhe for the Pacific Crisis Fundraiser project. The wonderful red body suit carries the name “Reby” and as you can see it is not only a simple red body suit… gasqhe made an awesome fashion outfit out of a wonderful idea for a great cause!!!

The red bodysuit is great made with light and shadows and a light folds that make it just look awesome. For sure a total eyecatcher is the huge veil that looks like it would be in motion can pulled back by a flurry of wind.Β  One more prim makes the amazing parted coat. So run to the Pacific Crisis Fundraiser Sim (http://slurl.com/secondlife/World%20of%20Beauty/205/147/1003) and make your part to help and get this awesome outfit for your wardrobe!

(picture provided by Baiastice)

Usually I only use my own pics but this one is so nice I could not resist to use it for showcasing the Baiastice contribution for the Pacific Crisis Fundraiser project. An awesome red stiletto with cute lines and a sweet ribbon in the back. Perfect for every elegant dress or even a neat casual outfit! And do not forget all the money you spent will help the people who were hit so hard by the terrible disaster in japan! So please make your way to the Pacific Crisis Fundraiser Sim (http://slurl.com/secondlife/World%20of%20Beauty/205/147/1003) and see what else beside gasqhe and Baiastice you can get there, I am sure you will find a lot what you like and every single linden counts πŸ™‚

Show Review of outfits I was wearing in the Tres Beau Moonlight Show :)

Last sunday I had the great pleasure to walk the runway in the amazing Tres Beau Moonlight Show presented by the Passion Fashion Agency. I was allowed to showcase 3 wonderful outfits created and designed by Kimmera Madison, creator and owner of Tres Beau. The first one that you as well can see on the picture above is called “Francais”

The whole outfit caught my heart… it is so non symmetric and special, I really felt honored that I was allowed to wear it for the show. The basic is made with amazing detailed and very filigree textured layers, that are covered over and over by little ornaments in a basic brown tone but with many color highlights in it. The total center of the view for me is the half side coat. Only the back and the right leg are covered by the coat and the right arm is decorated with huge fantastic ruffles that go up to the neck and form kinda neck collar. The great sculpted belt that is part of the down part holds the whole coat in place. For the makeup I chose the “Night” makeup of the “Castalia” natural skin of Glam Affair with the dark smokey eyes. The “Xia” hair is done by 3636 designed and all the lovely jewelry I used for this styling, yula Finesmith from Finesmith Designs made πŸ™‚

The next outfit gave me lots of fun to style it. I have a little addiction for retro looks and I rarely can style like this for shows or blogs so this one really made me happy πŸ˜‰ The colors as well played in my hand as black and red are my absolute favours πŸ™‚ so I just added hair from artilleri as the great glasses come already with the “Lucy” Fresh outfit πŸ™‚ The skirt comes in 2 versions – the one you can see in the pic above and one that is a bit softer and falls down a bit more.

The sweet little cherry earrings,as well I found at artilleri one of my favourite retro and vintage stuff stores anyways πŸ˜‰ But back to Tres Beau… as I said the glasses are part of the outfit and what again shows off the great eye for the detail of Kimmera if it comes to designing skills are the incredible wrist parts with the lovely bows!

My last outfit for the show was the “Ginger Jar” a very cute blue and white dress that’s is perfect for the actual spring time in my view πŸ˜‰ The shoulders are free and make room for a nice and big necklace. The skirt comes in 2 options to choose from. Once a flexible version and one with a sculpted prim. For the chest part we as well have very nice made sculpted prim that gives an awesome realistic touch as well. I could not resist to add one of the great “Lode” hats done by Chirzaka Vlodovic named “Amber”

I hope you enjoyed my little review of the amazing Tres Beau Moonlight Show and if you visit the Tres Beau Mainstore you can see all the other lovely creations that were shown in that fantastic show and for sure many more πŸ˜‰

Marita Overland helps the Pacific Crisis Fundraiser!

Marita Overland, designer of Runway Couture gave me yesterday her contribution to the great Pacific Crisis Fundraiser Project…

As I was talking to her she told me:

“As in true Runway Couture fashion, we love to create beautiful pieces to benefit great causes! As I sat last night talking to a friend from Hawaii, she got an IM stating that the first earthquake had hit Japan. I knew right then, I need to create somethingΒ  to sell and donate the proceeds to Red Cross for the Tsunami reliefs!

I really hope you like this gown, as much as I loved making it and you do you part in supporting the relief efforts!”

So please make your way to the Pacific Crisis Fundraiser (http://slurl.com/secondlife/World%20of%20Beauty/205/147/1003)and help! This amazing simple made gown shows way more than just elegance … it shows that you were able to help and if you wear it, it will always remind you that you wear a gown that was made for such an important charity event!!!
