The new Times Square Tribal dress from Shiki struck me as another that dress that would benefit from the wild, lonely setting of Marcus Inkpen’s build on Utopia 4, so I flew over to another corner of the sim for a few shots of this extraordinary dress and that extraordinary little island.
There’s something really haunting about how this island rises with the stairs to the house and how the island is anchored by that chain. There’s also a certain tension with the laws of physics suggesting its imminent collapse. Add to that how from this angle, the arching stairs seem almost like the island’s vertebrae leading to its head – in the form of the house and you can’t help but think that the chain is restraining the dragon that is the island.
The dress is a blend of restraint in the corset and movement in the skirt so there’s something perfect about shooting it here.
With it I wore the Maitreya Allure heels with tights and a wildly exuberant hairdo from Vanity Hair that is also a combination of wildness and restraint with the scarf restraining the riot of curls. The scarf is color change. The hair does not come in red, but a lttle tinting of the brown and I was happy.
The Fossilized necklace from Dark Mouse is about as perfect as can be. It goes beautifully with the dress, but also reflects the idea of the fossilized dragon/island. The earrings and Crystal Cuff bangles are also from Dark Mouse – the earrings from the recently released Chocolate Sparkles set.

Beautiful post 🙂
I love how thoughtfully you chose your location to match the dress and necklace. Beautifully done. 🙂
Thanks so much!! It is a great sim for drama!
Took some time to find the sim though. Here is the SLURL!
Yikes! I posted the SLurl for Charlotte’s World instead of for Utopia04. Thanks for the correction.
