Memento Mori


Memento Mori is a specific art piece – in any style or genre – that has the specific purpose of reminding us of our mortality. It says “Remember you must die.” The gown I am wearing is called Ange (Angel) and its rose color and loving detail is more a celebration of life, I thought it might be interesting to shoot it in the white on white Memento Mori – a complex and stunning cathedral build all in white that is alive with light shining through the countless windows.


As a reminder of mortality, a cathedral is an obvious choice. It is where the rites of life’s passage happen from christening to burial, the parentheses of life. It also evokes the immortal promise of the sacred for those who share that belief. Generally, the immensity of a cathedral reminds us of our own insignificance as well as our mortality. The Memento Moril build at ChouChou V succeeds on all levels.


The dress is an explosion of romanticism with delicate embroidery and intricate lacing and details. Even the gloves that come with it are embroidered. The ombre taffeta that changes from rose to gold is exquisite.


The intricate delicacy of the dress is well-matched by the delicate intricacy of the cathedral.


I added jewelry from Donna Flora and a romantic updo from Tukinowaguma.


The skin is from the classically beautiful PXL Creations Candy line. The flowers with the Tukinowaguma  hair can be tinted with a touch script, but I wanted a close and specific match so I simply colored them with the Edit Linked Parts option.
