SL was being a complete butt-pain last night, so I didn’t get to photograph what I had intended to blog today. I logged in and 30 minutes later, my inventory was still at only 1500 items of the 82,000. Sigh. Then I crashed. Typical. I hardly left my home; I just kept trying and trying to make SL work. Sigh again.
So, today I’m bringing you an “oldie” but definitely a goodie. Hyasynth Tiramisu of ~silentsparrow~ released this dress in September, 2009. How I missed it, I have no idea. But a few weeks ago, when Hya released the Kurai Suite, I noticed the Ritual Suite in this lovely dark pink.
Hya is getting so good at drawing textures and designing elegant, ornate, Victorian/fantasy clothing that’s it damned near scary. And this dress comes with a few bonuses, or as we say “lagniappe.” You also get a belt (sort of a leather or satin cord) with a large, ornate, silver batwing thingy, worn around the waist; a rosary with a gothic cross for your hand, and an ornate goblet with a holding pose (not shown). And if that’s not enough, there’s a bonus lolita skirt included as well. This outfit is actually a collaboration between Hya and October Rust, who made the goblet and rosary. Calico Ingmann Creations created a special hairstyle named Brenna for it as well. Here’s a closeup of the front and back, along with the rosary.
I love the delicate, metal vine filigree along the back – a true fantasy touch (how exactly *would* this corset stay on?? – shhhhhh… don’t spoil the fantasy!) Look at that sculpted overskirt, too.
The skin I love, too. Its’ the ATOMIC VIP Group Gift – a preview of the upcoming Fae in cream in VIP Pink makeup (previously blogged). I want more of these skins! I’m being really patient, but hurry, please!
Ok, I’m going to try once again to live my second life in a nice, calm, lag-free manner. Wish me luck.
Happy hunting, gathering, shopping, lovin’ (^ ^), etc. *mwah*!
