Chop Zuey: Art in Second Life ;)

Chop Zuey Full

The idea for this post was born when Iย  visited the Arts in Hats event, that was happening not too long ago. Belle Roussel, owner and designer of Chop Zuey, made the wonderful “In Memory of a Watermelon Fascinator” for that event and from the moment I saw it, I had the imagination of being in a museum watching art.

The wonderful “La Traviata” gown as well is one of the newest creations of Chop Zuey. Belle started to make full gowns with matching jewelry parts not too long ago and opened her new Sky Boutique, where you can find all this amazing creations. The “La Traviata” gown is available in different colors but with my addiction to black clothing, I certainly picked the black version for the post ๐Ÿ˜‰ The wonderful black gown is mesh made and the amazing jewelry parts, like the upper end of the gloves, the beautiful shoulder part, as well the earrings, bracelets and the necklace are part of the gown. Basically Belle made a ready to wear outfit for all lovers of the elegant evening wardrobe ;).

The hat is one of the amazing creations of Xenobia Foxclaw. She made an amazing collection of black and white hats and the “Blackwell No. 6” is just one of them. So you might wanna go over to the Xen’s Hats Mainstore if you wanna see ll of the new releases ;).

The hair is one of the amazing hairstyles of EMO-tions. The “Chevia” hairstyle was made in a special color for Miss Chevia, as she won the auction of the FFL event, where Mirja Mills, owner and designer of EMO-tions, auctioned herself off for charity. I am very happy that Mirja now gave this hairstyle to all of us as, it is an amazing elegant hairstyle that still has some edges ๐Ÿ˜‰

Now I just had to try building a little to realize my imagination of the museum at night thing ๐Ÿ™‚ . Those who know me, might figure what it took until I had those few prims together and some texture on it. Usually if I try to build you have something apocalyptic looking something where you really have to have a good imagination to figure out what I wanted to do originally *laughs*. But after some hours it worked out somehow and … tatataaaaa… here it is ๐Ÿ™‚

The Runway Perfect Hunt #4 – Part 10

TRPH #4 Prism fulla

The Runway Perfect Hunt goes in itโ€™s 4th round :) . Morgane Batista again made it, to get amazing designers to participate in one of the most famous hunts on the grid. Even if the title says โ€œThe hunt with models in mindโ€ does not mean this hunt is limited to models only. All the amazing and versatile designs are amazing additions to everybodyโ€™s wardrobe, even the males will find some amazing hunt prizes in some locations ;) This year the hunt is not a total freebie hunt, each hunt item costs $5 Linden. With a total of 50 shops you reach a maximum of $250 Linden, what is a great amount for so many amazing quality designs!

After being absent because of RL, I would like to show some more of the wonderful Runway Perfect Hunt items before the hunt is over.

Prism made a wonderful summer dress for the Runway Perfect Hunt. The beautiful “Charmie” dress is perfect for the summer. A short dress with an amazing high belt, and a super stylish neck collar. The smooth colors from white to light blue underline the awesome summer feeling of this dress. Again it was Xenobia Foxclaw, who made that amazing hat. I know this must look strange, as I use her hats lately a lot, but she simply has so many amazing hats in unusual colors and so many different shapes that I really fell in love with them. The “Fort Sill Feodora” hat that I used for this post, is a band new one that not even is released yet. Xen made them for a special show in the beginning of June, but I was allowed to have a few already and do some sneak previews ๐Ÿ˜‰ The shoes I was wearing a lot too in the last few weeks and never lost a word about them. The “Dare” shoes from the Diktator Shop. Diktator has some amazing new shoes, the break out of the usual styles that I can see all over the grid and so I had to have them for sure ๐Ÿ˜‰ A girl can never have enough shoes and especially not enough high heels ๐Ÿ˜‰ If you bite your tongue and buy the not really cheap fatpack you get a HUD that allows you to match the skin, tint your nails and even the shoes itself in many different colors and as well color combination, so I would dare to say the prize is worth it… but like I said I am a shoes addicted so I might be not really unbiased…

The beautiful casual jewelry comes from a german jewelry designer, that I was allowed to wear for a show last week – Vincenca Rosca. The “Sleeping Beauty” set comes with a HUD, where you can change the leather, medal and as well the gems. In the beginning i had a few problems as the HUD was not that easy but after I made the effort to read the included NC… yes I am impatient and usually I never read manuals… it was no problem to recolor and customize the “Sleeping Beauty” set until it matched the “Charmie” dress.

There is only a few days left to do the TRPH #4 and then all those amazing goodies will be gone. So hurry if you wanna go for this amazing dress and all the other incredible goodies of this hunt ๐Ÿ™‚

The Runway Perfect Hunt #4 – Part 9

TRPH #4 - 22769+Dulce Secrets fulla

The Runway Perfect Hunt goes in itโ€™s 4th round :) . Morgane Batista again made it, to get amazing designers to participate in one of the most famous hunts on the grid. Even if the title says โ€œThe hunt with models in mindโ€ does not mean this hunt is limited to models only. All the amazing and versatile designs are amazing additions to everybodyโ€™s wardrobe, even the males will find some amazing hunt prizes in some locations ;) This year the hunt is not a total freebie hunt, each hunt item costs $5 Linden. With a total of 50 shops you reach a maximum of $250 Linden, what is a great amount for so many amazing quality designs!

After being absent because of RL, I would like to show some more of the wonderful Runway Perfect Hunt items before the hunt is over.

The amazing “Brocade” dress, is the contribution of 22769 to the 4th edition of the TRPH. A wonderful once piece mesh dress in red and black. The skirt is made plain black what makes the brocade texture of the red jacket even more shine. The wonderful makeup comes from Dulce Secrets and is as well one of the awesome hunt items. Dulce Secrets provides not only the makeup, as well they have a wonderful skin in different versions in their TRPH #4 box.

The super cool ankle boots I found at the Gothic Fair 2013. Blinesen + MaiTai made the wonderful “Diavola” ankle boots with that unusual shape. The basic black victorian looking base with the amazing buckle, was combined with the red parts that look like little flames round your ankles.

The Cool and lightly messy looking “Carla” hair from EMO-tions was just perfect for the look and with the “Lost” necklace, as well from EMO-tions, I found the perfect matching jewelry as well ๐Ÿ™‚

Now I was looking at myself and still I missed something… a hat, yes a hat would be awesome. I searched through all my inventory but I did not have one single red hat that would match to the outfit. All of a sudden I remembered about one of my oldest friends… she was designing hats! I stormed into Xenobia Foxclaw’s IM like a hurricane and started crying about me looking for a deep/blood red hat with maybe something black on it. Xen knows me for quite some time now and she knows my weird moments as well, so she just laughed and said I should wait a few minutes she would look through her creations. A few seconds later 3 different mesh hats made their way into my inventory and the “Dewey” hat in red suede was the perfect addition to the styling. Thanks so much Xen for again saving my day ๐Ÿ˜‰

The Runway Perfect Hunt goes in it’s last days so if you not yt grabbed all the fantastic items you really should hurry and make your way to the participating shops ๐Ÿ˜‰
