Ready for the Oscars

The great thing about SL is that you can dress up in any manner you want. You can be grunge, or goth, or elegant. Not only can we admire the lovely gowns we see all the ladies in beauty contest wear but we can go to the store and get the same look not a knock off. I really was blown away with the lovely gowns in the MVW contest this year and in particular a few from Tres Beau.

So off to Tres Beau I went and bought myself this really stunning golden gown. The “Miss Vivienne” is simply amazing. I love love the color and how it drapes. The texturing in this is so well thought out and every single detail is perfection – as you would always expect from any designs you see at Tres Beau. Of course I had to add some really awesome pieces from Finesmith too. I am all set for my walk down the red carpet on Oscar night.

One Event – Three Looks

I was honored recently to have the opportunity to cast for Kabuki Boutique. It was a really challenging event and we had to present ourselves in all white. The theme was a futuristic world where everything was white without any shades or colors. Absolutely purity of white.

When you go shopping for white items you don’t know how hard it is to actually find things that are really white. So many items say white but when you get them unpacked and start wearing them, they are actually various shades of white or grey. There are as many shades of white as there are black so finding something utterly pure could be a real challenge. Once you bought something you found you could not tint it. However with careful hunting I found several things that worked and pieces I was able to wear and to tint. Not only did you have to change the color but the actual texture itself so that the underlying texture did not affect the purity of white.

When you go to a casting there are a couple of things that are critical to remember. A number of people did not read the notecard carefully and showed up in various shades of grey and some with colors on. Also when you have a casting and there is a landmark for you always go and practice and practice before hand. If you don’t know the tricks in the runway you can find yourself in an embarrassing situation where you fall off and can’t get back on. It pays to practice until you can do it in your sleep.

I can’t help myself but always over do and in this cast I created three different looks – not sure as to which one to wear. here are all three looks.

This is the look I ended up wearing:
