so, two days ago I was approached by a certain guy who asked me if it was possible to create an outfit for an IC event on their sim that reflects a proper gorean freewoman. Now, you likely noticed my love for Gor is shallow at best and I rarely if ever dwell in it anymore. However, the idea of creating an outfit that is NOT the usual boring kind of dress for a FW made me curious and I agreed. Granted, my FW has weird ears and is a naughty one: She takes off her veil at times. ;)
So, lets have a look!
The (messy) hair!
Well first of all, this hair is not up for sale yet, but will be soon at The Attic. It is another release called Mientje by Mina Nakamura for her store Mina and it is SO pretty. I really enjoy messy updos and this one is really cute. There are not enough of those out there. Mina’s textures are among my favourite textures for hair out there and her hair is materials enabled, too. Unfortunately I have yet to figure out how to take a pic with materials on without my computer just…blowing up. I like Mina’s tones though I do think the highlights tend to be a wee bit too orange at times.Though the evolution Mina’s hairs has been undergoing has been such an improvement. Her strands often used to be thick and kinda chunky, now they are just right. However, I would have LOVED some more wispy strands around the sides. :)
The dress is called Anne and is made by Augurer Resident for her store Luminary. It is original mesh and a VERY unique design if you compare it to most other dresses out there. I always have been sucker for cool ideas and this combination of a highwaisted skirt with a vest is really cool. I love the shiny, silken look of the skirt which imho is very fitting to be worn by woman of a higher caste. I do believe the edges around the wrinkles at the botton may be a little too sharp and thin, however that hardly takes away from the skirts awesome look. Given the VERY reasonable prices at Luminary I dare say this dress is a steal. :)
The belt is offered by Miffyhoi Rosca for her store Zenith at the current round of Men’s Department. I squeaked happily when I saw it. It comes with three rigged sizes and one unrigged version, which I had to use for this one. It comes in several tones as well. Fitting it is a little tricky, however once done, it is totally worth it. I very much like the leather and metal textures on this one as well as the general idea. This makes a nice addition for a lot of outfits, though due to its shape, the bag is much easier to fit above pants than above slightly flaring skirts.
