Yep, still trying to catch up. I’ve had the lovely dresses I’m going to show you today for probably a month now and the beautiful skins from ploom for about two weeks now. I’ve worn a few of the makeups in posts, but I wanted to show you all of them. So, let’s get started! Iki released a new dress called Maestro which features music symbol embellishments. It’s a classic Violent Seduction style dress, which means that it is quintessentially Iki.
The dress comes with the sculpted collar with treble clef, as well as a sculpted bow and treble clef adornment on the dress; there are also sculpted sleeves which seamlessly blend into the dress. You’ll forget you’re wearing sleeve prims! This color is called “Love” and is definitely my favorite. I love Violent Seduction’s shade of pink. All the dresses are the same except for the color of the skirt. I’ve paired up Maestro with different makeups from ploom’s Maia skins. This makeup is called Cotton Candy. The hair is a new release from Wasabi Pills called Yumi. I’ll show you various shades of Yumi in the rest of this post. The Cura Pumps are so cute – they’re another semi-new style from Dilly Dolls which were originally released at the Shoe Fair. They’re now available at the Dilly Dolls mainstore. The Cura Pumps come in three shades – light, medium, and dark, each with their own color palette. They use Oriana’s beautiful HUD to change the different parts independently. The color palettes of Dilly Dolls and Violent Seduction are very different, so the shoes and the skirts never quite matched, but I think I still managed to make them work. 🙂 Here’s the Life (or lavender) shade of Maestro.
Here I’m wearing the Smoke makeup of ploom’s Maia skins. This makeup really goes with just about anything; it’s very versatile. Here are the other three colors of Maestro – Ice (blue), Ivory, and Fawn (brown).
Isn’t Maestro just the sweetest little dress? You really need to see Iki’s ads for the dresses, too. She looks adorable pairing a little beret with the dresses. I’m wearing a different Maia makeup with each color of Maestro in this composite, so here’s a closeup of the makeups for you. Click to see it full size, plz.
Oh, I had to add in a closeup of the lovely details on the skirt. Everything is hand drawn to perfection – seriously, zoom in on that bodice with the covered buttons and lace. The skirt also features lace details and a music motif with notes and treble clefs. Check out the tops of the stockings, too, with the lace/ribbon. Damn! I wish I could draw like that! But anywho, the makeups worn here are (left to right, top to bottom) Melon, Jungle, 14K, and Gloomy Day (which was a Project Themeory addition last weekend).
Well, that’s it for now. I have hunting to do! I started a fantastic hunt last night and am almost finished. I’ll be showing you some amazing free stuff from that hunt next. Which hunt is it? There are so many hunts going on, it could be a number of hunts. But which one is it? Hee hee… you’ll just have to “stay tuned.”
Happy hunting, gathering, shopping, etc. *mwah*!
