Rejoice, oh you lovers of Victorian attire! Tabitha Ninetails of the Laughing Academy has returned from her real life hiatus with her creativity intact. 🙂 When I received the notecard announcing the new release, a lightbulb went off in my head – the Laughing Academy – oh yeah, where has that store been?? I tp’d over and fell in love all over again. The beautiful gowns, the intricately detailed Victorian shoes. *drool*
The new release is not quite in the same vein as the majority of the store, but it’s a perfect, casual outfit for the chilly weather most of us have been experiencing in RL. Once I put it on, I really didn’t want to take it off: It just looks so comfortable! The hat fits like a dream with minimal tinkering, and the shoes are just precious. (I must admit that this is the type of outfit I would actually wear in RL, sans the hat.)
Look at the texturing on that knit sweater! And did you notice that the buttons are *not* oddly skewed and elongated on the torso? What’s up with that for the majority of drawn buttons? And I can almost feel the warmth of the skirt with the petticoat underneath the brown overskirt. Oh, the name? Bonnie, of course – and I certainly feel quite bonnie wearing it. 🙂
Oh, the hair is another freebie from the same cart from Waka & Yuki. You really need these hairs – color change and size adjustable via touch….. awesome!
Happy hunting, gathering, shopping, lovin’ (^ ^), etc. *mwah*!
