Angelica Skins…Tudor Gowns…Oh My
There’s so much going on these days, it’s difficult for me to keep up. Between real life, Second Life, and all both entail, I’ve had to force myself to slow down a bit on the creation. 60L Sundays, Regular releases, planning for events like Relay for Life, and all the rest is keeping me busy so to anyone who feels neglected on account of it…I’m sorry…and I welcome your verbal whippings.
What I do have for you, is Tudor, a gown based greatly on styles worn by the likes of Anne Boleyn and Katherine of Aragon. It’s almost a redux of ‘Boleyn Girl’ a familiar and popular staple of Sanctum offerings. I’ve made it in 11 shades, all of which are vibrant and eye-catching. For those who want a hint of what’ll be in store for Relay for Life, look back upon the more recent releases. Some of them will be appearing in limited edition shades!
Now to discuss the Angelica skins for a while. I felt it would be best to first display them in a regular post, showing how they work with my gowns. I’ve made them in makeups that go with a lot of the gowns, that’s the reasoning behind some of the shades that aren’t commonly worn on the lips, like the blues and greens. ‘Water’ editions for example, were made specifically to match the ‘Water’ version of Diana. The Aurora Major group gift was crafted to match the Aurora version of Diana, as well.
With these skins, I wanted lush makeups that were glossy but not trashy, eyeshadow that wasn’t “too much” and cleavage that was a bit more subtle. I have received a lot of feedback about the skins, and that feedback will influence future skins. Before any new skin styles will be made however, I’ll be expanding the tones that Angelica will be available in.
The first tone was a really light pale, the second, newly available, is a light tan, which is more of a natural tone. Deeper tans and darker tones will be coming in the future, so if the really light tones aren’t for you, but you otherwise like the skins, keep an eye out!
