I love the deep, rich red in this sexy, transgressive little dress from Diram. I also love the contrast between the soft draping neckline and the bold, militaristic shoulder pads complete with spike. It’s a dress that reflects dueling ideas that come together in a striking combination. I love the shoulder details, but must confess that getting the shoulders and collar to fit every pose is extremely difficult. It looks pretty good for just walking and standing, but changing poses presents real challenges to the sculpts.
I decided to pull out my projectors and use two of them to cast a few shadows – tinting the light red for a fun effect. See the tutorial Lighting, Shadows and Projectors, Oh My!.
I chose the fun spiked heels from Nardcotix to complement the dress. I used one of the new Bootz poses from Status for this shot.
Jewelry from WTG that Tosy Xue released just before Valentine’s Day seemed a perfect complement and I love that his nod to the holiday has no sentimentality in the jewelry or manicure.
And I finished my look with a sassy hairdo from Exile and the gorgeous skin from Belleza.
