I love the colors in the bodice of Paper Couture’s Waves of Silk gown far too much to only wear it as released by the fabulous Lu Sisters. They made a gorgeous ballgown, but I want to wear that top for everyday, too, so I paired it with one of Ingenue’s fabulous pencil skirts. I was once this close to an elk in the woods near my home. I was standing along the trees at the edge of a marshy meadow a lot like this, keeping very still while watching for deer, when an elk stepped out from the brush right next to me. We looked at each other in shock and then he chuffed a little and turned back into the woods.
Then I ran off to the Gulf of Lune to shoot some pictures. You will love this place. It’s a marshland full of wildlife and birdlife – one of the few great places for twitchers in Second Life. I was entranced by the herons. The one event in my life that I would classify as mystical or spiritual was when I was camping at Hell Gate in Montana. It was summer and we decided to roll the sleeping bags out on the dock that extended far out into the reservoir. A breeze on my face woke me about three in the morning and I opened my eyes to see a heron slowly hovering above me, looking at me. He would fly up and glide down so close I could feel the air from his wings. I don’t know how long it lasted, but it felt timeless and as though it could last forever. I was careful not to move or startle him and simply savored this extraordinary blessing.
The shoes are the Serenity shoes from the new shoe store Purrfect 10. They are gorgeous shoes, but they are only for folks who have patience and skill at matching skin tones. I found the tinting method cumbersome and frustrating.
Here you can see the gown as conceived by Paper Couture. It’s truly magnificent, but for special occasions.
