Greetings Gentle Reader!
I have two new offerings for you today. One is a gorgeous, stunning, wowza scarlet 1920's evening gown! Holly Berry is based on a real 1925 evening gown and quite sexy for those upcoming holiday dances! I really do love this gown, and picked it for both its beautiful color and its intricate beadwork. It comes with a resizable head piece, period bra and tap panties, as well as black stockings, but not with gloves or shoes.
I explain where the gloves come from in the notecard that accompanies the gown, and have listed landmarks for the store that carries them. Sometimes I feel it's better to support other SL merchants and buy what I want to use. In this manner, I hope to encourage you, the client, to also purchase gloves from the designer who made them. She's most talented! No I do not know her, but I know I appreciate her work.
The next offering is for the men out there. It is the New Babbage Greatcoat! A Victorian Greatcoat based on a real 1890's garment made of curly lamb's wool. The toggle and braid work on the front is awesome, and the collar and cuffs are prim and adjustable.
This greatcoat is Mod/No Copy/Trans and costs $350 lindens at any of the Curious Seamstress stores. Or you could visit us at Blisswood and snag one there. Ladies, since it is transfer, you can buy it for your man as a warm holiday gift! It can also, as always, be purchased on SLex.
Now, I have some other items in the works. One is a gorgeous Bonbon Rococo style gown, Kindness, which will be out later this evening. I can give you a little peek here . . .
Kindness is one of the 7 Virtues series of gowns. This is probably one of the more prim intricate designs I've ever made. There's lots of bows, flowers, ruffles, even on the back drape, but they are all true to the period. This is not an exact replica of a specific gown, but rather my own creation using the Rococo ideals as a guide. Though the stays and drawers included in the undergarments are real enough!
The other pre-peek I'll let you see is a brand new line of items from me. This is the "Little Egypt Victorian Dance Finery" line. For now I have two debute outfits, with as always, more in the wings. Please do remember this is what I consider a draft picture. The outfits are nearly ready to go and should be out by Friday. I'll only show one for now, but the other outfit, Sister Nuit, is in black, gold and red.
The first up is 'Mother Isis', done in tribute to the Egyptian Mother Goddess Isis. A card with her story will come with the silks. I do consider these dancing silks. There's several layers. When all are worn together you have a very modest dancing outfit. But you can take away layers and have a more risque outfit. These silks will not have strip scripting, but rather resizing scripting so that they can be fitted to the dancer.
Mother Isis -
This is a mock up ad, and there is some change that may happen to the final product. I can tell you that there is a heavily beaded headdress that matches the outfit, that the long draping scarves come off with one of the prim tops. There are two prim tops. One has fabric tassels that hang down to cover a good deal of the mid-drift, while the other tassled chest piece is topless and could be used if you were in an Adult Egyptian sim and playing a dancer. By the way, there are two skirts. One is long, the other is very short and just barely covers what it should! Both can be worn together, and if you look closely at the picture, you'll see the shorter, darker blue panels. Overall, this is a very detailed outfit and one that I am quite happy to offer.
This is also another outfit that's been lingering in my folders for well over a year now. Miss Breezy Carver told me to stop being so protective and let the little dears fly free, and so I am. I hope when you finally have them in YOUR closet, you cherish them and have fun with them!
That's all for the moment. Please remember "Kindness" and "Mother Isis" are not yet released, but will be soon!
