For the past four year my friend, Harper Ganesvoort, has put on a fun photo contest focused on the true highlight of the Academy Awards – the fashion. This is a very different contest from most in Second Life. It’s a contest sponsored by an individual out of enthusiasm for the art and fashion of Second Life, not by an event seeking to build interest or a store promoting its business. There’s nothing wrong with those contests, but there’s something tremendously right about a contest just for the pleasure of it. You can post entries on Flickr or KoinUp and the rules are very simple. Whether you enter or not, you should definitely take a look at the fabulous fashions.
I chose the fabulous Ingrid gown from Kunglers for a few reasons. Primarily, there’s too little rich color on the red carpet most years and even less print. This dress has a beautiful print underskirt and the colors are so rich and inviting. Besides, Ingrid Bergman was one of the greatest actresses ever – so the dress might be lucky.
My hair is a soft, loosely wrapped chignon from Lelutka. I added the fabulous floral necklace and earrings from WTG. This happens to be something you can gift in-world if you’re thinking about Valentine’s Day. I bought the other color set fro Gidge for Christmas and was so impressed with the gifting set-up. I got to write a message and choose the wrapping paper on the box! Now that’s a gifting service.
The skin is the lovely Nico – a new release from Baiastice.
