A Dream

I do hope you’ll indulge me for beginning the post with a dreamy image I captured while on the embryo sim. October seems to be slipping through my fingers, and I’ve got so much I want to show you…oh so much…but I’ll limit myself in this post to a new release – Rose.

Rose Emerald

Rose is a gown that began more than a month before its release. After what felt like endless considering, tinkering, and testing, I’m in love with the result. Rose is adorned with exactly that – roses on her textures, and sculpted roses in her prims. Not only on the Basque waist of the skirt, but also on the chest ruffles, and arm bands.  Subtly, elegantly, but very much there upon close inspection.

There’s a train option with the skirt, so you can choose whether you want the fuller, or the more sleek look. The prim sleeve are, of course, optional for wear (though I the whole outfit is much cuter with them worn). You can find Rose at the main store in a range of deep jewel tones, and in a couple of refreshing iridescent shades.

So, if you’re looking for a more modest gown for your collection that still boasts beauty and charm, you might consider Rose an option. In this pictures, my hair is from fri.day, skin from LAQ, and eyes are by Rosie’s Thingies. The sims are Alirium, and Embryo.

Also don’t forget, the Halloween Countdown calendar is still running, most of the items are now available, so if you haven’t had a chance to take a look, I encourage you to do so, you might just find that perfect Halloween outfit or accessory you’ve been searching for!


~Destiny II~

Destiny II - Onyx

For those who’ve been following my work for a long time, it may come to recollection a certain gown from June of 2008, called Destiny. Destiny II is a remake of the original Destiny gown, but yet, redone to a point where it’s a completely unique style of it’s own.

Destiny II - Periwinkle

I wanted Destiny II to feel like a fairytale in fabric. To achieve this I mixed the soft poof sleeves, and panniers on the skirt with an overlay incorporating more of an angular kerchief look. The same is reflected in the sleeves themselves upon closer inspection. This, along with the silver sequins and metallic stars adorning both bodice and overlay, created a gown that I’m very pleased with.

Destiny II - Ivory

Destiny II is available at Kouse’s Sanctum now, in a range of colours, from pastels, to brights, to jewel tones. So whether your preference is for light, sweet tones, bold brights, or dramatically deep colours, there’s something there that’ll be sure to please.  Another image, as well as credits, are after the jump.
