Gidge dared me to call it that. Frankly, my folder for this hair is named Formal Hair: Embellished or Hats. But Fancy-Ass hair is more descriptive and that’s what it is. This is Wow! hair. There’s full size shots of each of these in the Set on my Flickr.
I made a trip to WideWorld Paradise – an sim exploring surrealist art – and think I could spend hours exploring its features. When I saw this gorgeous blue tunnel with orange peacock trees, I decided to wear the blue version of the Samuela dress from LaLei. The cross-banded sequins give it a nice modern look, especially with the bit of exposed midriff. It comes in six colors, pastel pink, blue and green and cream, gold and silver.
Isn’t the setting gorgeous? When you teleport into WideWorld Paradise, you are offered several places to teleport to, but don’t rely on just that. There are surprises for the intrepid explorer.
Today is the final day of Fashion For Life. You simply must go. Even if you haven’t a linden in your pocket, go to the see the amazing sims built for the event. If you have lindens, go and support cancer research and find yourself something lovely. Several stores have discounted prices to increase the sales and raise even more money for the American Cancer Society – so it’s a win-win for you. Speaking of something lovely, This is the Maylee dress from LaLei. It comes in several colors, I happened to choose the white one because I wanted to shoot a white dress at this dance floor on Emerald Green.
Walking up to the dance floor, I stopped to admire the waterfall. Emerald Green is sim full of little jewel-like settings such as this. It’s artfully built with high mountains and deep valleys to form small settings that are a photographer’s dream.
I have a few formal gowns in real life including one to-die-for body-hugging extravaganza of embroidery and beads and pailletes with a slit on one side that goes almost to the waist – it’s a hot little number and I almost always wear one of the others. I don’t know why, but most occasions that call for a formal gown are not nice, short little one to two hour cocktail parties but long, tortuous 4 hour banquet, program, dance marathons and whenever I think of hours at a banquet table sitting on those bumpy beads and being scratched by those pailletes and managing that slit to make sure I don’t flash London or France, I push the garment bag along and choose another gown. Yeah, it’s gorgeous and I would happily wear it for a couple hours, but not for 5 or 6. When I saw this gown from LaLei, I thought, yeah, you could wear that all night long and look good until the wee hours of the morning.
Well, not really, but you can make a blue moon in Windlight any old time and that’s what I wanted for shooting this lovely blue dress from LaLei. I used a photo box from LUST for this background. LUST photoboxes are fun little items and most are only 10L so you can’t go wrong. Anyway, after I recently received a review copy of the Flower Fever dress from LaLei that I blogged last week, I had to check out the store and see what else there was. Well, it’s a gown-lovers paradise and I only managed to walk out with just one purchase because I could not decide on one color for the other dress I wanted to get – so decided to be strong and come back when I made up my mind because I am trying to get my inventory under control. However, for this dress, the gorgeous blue was irresistible. In fact, this dress chased me around the store hollering “Buy Me!” when I tried to move on.
I love the name of this lovely gown from LaLei. It’s called Flower Fever and it certainly ups the temperature on flowers, doesn’t it? I love the impressionistic flowers in the skirt and bodice and am reminded in subtle ways of Van Gogh’s wonderful paintings.
