Recently, Christchurch New Zealand was the victim of a terrible earthquake. For more information on this devastating event, you can read here: http://www.cbc.ca/news/world/story/2011/02/24/new-zealand-earthquake-recovery.html
To help raise relief money for those affected, designers from around the Grid, myself included, will be offering goods, of which 100% of the proceeds will go directly to Garden City Relief. You can read about the project here: http://gardencityreliefsl.wordpress.com/
My offering (pictured below) is a special recoloured edition of the Destiny II gown, in the favourite colour of one of my Kiwi friends.
The event runs from Feb 26th-March 5th. You can teleport to the vendor area using this link between those dates to view all the offerings from the various merchants.
The Sophie gowns are now available at Kouse’s Sanctum in their full range of colours, and my sincere apologies for the delay in blogging it. I’ve incorporated whimsical curls and butterflies into this design, keeping it fairly simple, but also interesting. There are a number of rich colours you can choose from, in either gold or silver trim (thanks to a nudge by a friend of mine, the silver versions exist). Each set includes three skirts, a full ball gown skirt, an evening gown skirt, and a short skirt as a bonus.
I was visiting the Garden of Dreams whilst capturing these images. I suggest paying a visit if you haven’t, there’s beauty to be seen there in every corner. I’d like to mention that the jewelry shown in these pictures is not yet available, but will be released -very- soon, so if you’re interested in it, please keep an eye out for release notices. The set is called Margaret, and will include tiara, necklace, and earrings.
As I work to prepare for the coming year’s events and releases, I’ll leave you with more pictures of Sophie. There are several below the cut, as well as a link to the complete set on Flickr. Safe winds!
