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 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.
“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 🙂
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.
