Kiddo Oh of Dead Dollz has put a lot of work and time in designing some stunning gowns for Miss Virtual World. These gowns were for various MVW contestants and are now in store. Let’s look at three of my favourites!
The “Andalusia” gown is inspired by the flamboyant Andalusian traditional clothing. This hour-glass shape gown was worn by Miss Virtual Spain. The tight corset features a distinctive embroidery while a black lace decorates the chest. It comes with two floral embroidered mantons (one with a pose and one without), traditionally worn by flamenco dancers. The manton with the pose is more of a gift as it was meant to be worn on the catwalk during Miss Virtual World’s National Costumes Show. The other manton is copy/mod so you can add your own poses if you want.
DiamondGem is a beautiful gown with a long, full skirt with a sheer, organza top and a thin gold belt.
My favourite of the three is Shinobi. The inspiration for this gown is not the typical kimono but is attributed to the shinobi, or ninjas as they are better known as. A female shinobi uses seduction to get close to their prey and this dress is certainly seductive. I love the sheer bodice embellished with an embroidered sakura tree and the sexy long-slit skirt. The obi is a tribute to Geisha’s traditional clothing.
Sax Shepherd, owner of Sax Shepherd Designs, has also been very busy the past six months and has finally released his exquisite Aphrodite collection. The set consists of jewelry and shoes (which will be blogged soon). The Jewelry Collection includes a choker, a pair of bracelets, a cocktail ring, a headpiece diadem and 2 sets of earrings. The jewel options include diamonds, pearls, ruby and onyx. The jewels are divided into 3 zones allowing for plenty of mix and match options. All the pieces are 100% original mesh and materials enabled.
Another busy person has been Ikon Innvoia of IKON. They’ve just released their beautiful Deadshine Eyes. Each colour purchase includes 10 shine colours in both regular eyes and mesh eyes with a hud for effects. There are 57 colours to choose from. I love IKON eyes and wear them probably 95% of the time.
