Last post for 2013. I hope you’ll all have a good New Year’s Eve tomorrow! Today, I decided to go with a different style than what I usually do. I spotted a certain item and I just HAD to blog it. I am not sure if my pics are decent enough to give credit to these items, but I kinda like them.
I am not a gown-girl in SL for sure. I wear dresses a lot in rl, but in SL? Short ones sometimes, but usually, my outfits for my elf are geared towards what ‘makes sense’ for her as a character. Usually my outfits are outfits I wear in actual RP, or would wear, given the right situation. This dress by Leezu! however caught my eye a couple of days ago when Vixie Rayna posted it on her Flickr and I WANTED IT NAOW. That rarely EVER happens with gowns. The last time I bought one myself because I WANTED IT NAOW was the dress from Baiastice at FaMeshed a good while ago.
Well, Leezu Baxter in my humble opinion has outdone herself on this one. I am not wearing the supercool hat nor the shoulder piece that comes with it. I thinkt he price of about 650 (or was it 675?) Lindens is okay. It comes in various colours. I am aware that the pattern of this dress is not exactly…umm…perfect for role-play, but I just couldn’t get past this dress. It is original mesh (to my knowledge) and Leezu once again has outdone herself with her textures. These are so, so, so crazy overdone and amazing at once. Also, the gown has materials enabled.
Leezu is known for her insane creativity when it comes to outfits and this dress is just another proof of it. I am so tire dof seeing the same stuff everywhere, so whenever I see something that just stands out, and this dress does imho, then I get it. I was a bit worried about the shape maybe being too poofy for my really small avi, but surprisingly enough, it still looks good. Plus, pure meshgowns often can look really strange wheny ou move around, but this one still seems to look fine.
Evangeline Eames of Valentina E. is someone who provides us with a myriad of really wellmade meshitems that can be mixed and matched. In this outfit, the longsleeved jacket is an item of hers and I had wanted to pick it up for a long, long time now and finally did. I love the poofy sleeves and the fact that it can be mixed and matched with a lot of different outfits. It is one of these items of which I personally just cannot have enough. :) Personally I enjoy the little buttons as well as the texture, though I think a few more colour options would have been super cool. I do wish though the rigging around the elbows would have been done different. As you can see in my next picture, the elbows bend weirdly.
Anc. Ltd. by Aki69 Resident is a brand that I have secretly been watching since a good while. Sometimes I posted their awesome golden royal orb from a gacha, but they don’t only have gachas but other, normal and just as awesome items as well. The mesh is original and the textures truly awesome. The creator pays great attention to detail and has a knack for really awesome, fantastic designs. Make sure to drop by at their store. :)
