There’s a lot going on for me right now, a lot of projects that I’m working on that will continue on (some of them) until the end of the year. For now though, it’s time for me to take a break from the sewing machine, and talk about one of the more recent releases.
Grand Duchess is a gown made almost explicitly for role playing, however it can, of course, be used in other avenues. Designed with slight hints of the Royal Court dress of Imperial Russia (Think Grand Duchess Anastasia) while still carrying a more predominant Medieval flair.
I made Grand Duchess initially as a gown that’s trimmings would only be in gold. However, as in the past, the black variety can be obtained in your choice of gold or silver trim. Tiny pearls are strewn across the embroidered hems for that little extra interest. There’s more after the cut, so please read on.
In the working of the prims of this gown, the most attention went into movement. The pictures in this post show a little of how Grand Duchess flows when dancing, though it is, of course, best observed in world. Grand Duchess was also made with the intent of being a more modest gown. Child sized versions are also available of this style.
You can find it at the main store in a range of vibrant colours. The gown is topped off in most of the pictures with the Queen Anne crown, also a new release. My skin is from LAQ, hair (blonde) from Truth, (brown) from Kouse’s Sanctum.
