~Bethany~

Bethany Ruby

There’s one new release today, and that is Bethany. Available in seven colors, and in two different metallic trim colors (silver and gold), Bethany is an eight piece set with multiple ways to wear it. Two skirt types, one much larger for those who prefer the full, grand, ballroom look, and also a slimmer one, for those preferring a more sleek look.

Bethany Onyx

Bethany is every bit the role player’s gown, with very much a ‘princess’ theme. From the ruffles at the chest, the sleeves dripping with sheer fabric, to the basque waist, it is every bit feminine, and detailed. Even with that royal air, though, she can be worn by any lady, perhaps to a fancy ball, or other grand event. Whatever the occassion, if you’re looking for something unique and lovely – Bethany is something to consider.

Bethany gowns are available now, at Kouse’s Sanctum.

~The Three Sisters~

Well, not really. But they are three very recent releases at Kouse’s Sanctum. Daniella, Marissa, and Devora are three gown sets that span time and style to bring something fresh and interesting to your virtual wardrobe.

Daniella uses jewel tones and lace to create an elegant, timeless look.

Daniella Emerald

Daniella - Ruby

Marissa combines old with new for a modern look that gives a polite, subtle nod to historical garb.

Marissa Lake Blue

Marissa - Snow

Devora incorporates vibrant color with antique beige and floral print to create something unique in an empire waisted gown.

Devora - Chocolate

Devora Amethyst

All can be found in a wide range of colors at the Kouse’s Sanctum main store.

~Naomi~

There’ve been several new releases at the Sanctum recently. One of which is Naomi, which you’ll see a bit of in this post.

Naomi - Ivory

It’s very much a lush, fairy-princess type of gown, full of ruffles and detailed patterns worked into the front lacing corset, and in the ribbon threaded onto the belt. A matching jeweled pendant sits at the centre of the belt’s front. The skirt is a very full, ballgown styled, with much emphasis on the flow of the primwork as it moves with you while you wear it.

Naomi - Periwinkle 1

While the original intention of ‘Naomi’ was to capture springtime pastels, it’s also been made available in deep jewel tones and in more muted hues for those who prefer more earthy colors.

Naomi - Onyx

Credit type things:

The jewelry used in these images is from the ‘Madame Royale’ set, which will be released at a later date. Hair is by Exile and Maitreya. I’ve also found use for some very sweet poses from Adore & Abhor which work very well with gowns, and are quite affordable. The eyes are from Banana Banshee by Rosemarie Indigo, and the skin is Sia from League.

Naomi - Blush


~Limited Editions~

Right now at the Sanctum, you can find four limited edition ‘remixed’ gowns. Each one draws two different styles together, to create something new. The catch is, only 30 of each of the four will ever be sold.

Mischa - Gown - Limited Edition

Mischa brings together the textures from Michelle, and some of the prim styling of Antonia…including elegant Enlightment era panniers and lacy sleeves.

Artemaith - Gown - Limited Edition

Artemaith brings together Artemis gown prim work with the textures from the Faith series.

Sophia - Gown - Limited Edition

Sophia brings together the Sophie gowns with the diaphanous skirt of the Naomi collection, and a new shoulder prim twist.

Selah - Gown - Limited Edition

The limited edition Selah brings together the textures of the recently released Selah gowns, and combines it seamlessly with the skirt and sleeve style of Jocelyn.

Once they’re gone, they’re gone forever, so if they catch your fancy, you can pick them up here, and they’re only $L300 each.
