AZUL Saleena Gown Worn With A Corset

AZUL, Saleena Gown in Amethyst & NV Corsetry, Medusa

In my bi-weekly regular live TV program that I host with Second Life TV in SL Japan, I wore one of the latest AZUL gowns that designer, Mami Jewell created for the Miss Virtual World beauty pageant in December last year.  I then added a corset named Medusa from NV Corsetry which was the brand we featured in my show on February 8th which was last week.

All the corsets from NV Corsetry are created by jewelry creator, Alexandra Nichols of Dahlinks Jewelry, which explains the amazing detail that you can see.  And then, her business partner, Khurt Vhargon, handles the scripting of all corsets where he allows not only a three-dimensional editing of the corsets but also allows others to edit the corsets for you, which is the same system as the one Bax Coen Boots are adopting.  This means, even if you are not sure if you can edit the prim corsets yourself, you can always ask for help!  All you have to do is message Khurt and he will be more than happy to help you edit your corset to fit you.

This combination of the Saleena Gown and the corset became one of my favorite looks and I have worn this quite often since last week.

Since the name of this newly released corset is Medusa, I matched a hair from Wasabi Pills that is decorated with a snake.  By the way, I lived in a sub-tropical country for about two years as a child and I happen to love snakes!  I used to pick up stray snakes (hmmm, I guess all snakes are stray snakes…) and asked mom if I could keep them, to my poor mom’s horror.

A New Designer, A New Store: Maria Bonita

I visited a new store, “Maria Bonita” that was just opened by a designer called Mell Coage. I must say, I enjoyed the visit immensely! She had a lot of outfits for a new store….almost too much to look at and all sold at very reasonable prices! All outfits were in the 100 – 130L range which meant, I could buy lots and not worry too much about my Lindens. And shop I did.

Although a lot of her clothes were casual, she also had some that were fit to be worn to a party. A lot of colours, a lot of fun and a lot of styles.

Here, I am showing two outfits I got. One is an outfit called “Dance Bling Outfit.” As the name suggests, this is a fun short pants set that comes with a simple black tank top. It was simple enough to allow me to have fun with other items I matched it up with. I chose a metallic tights that I picked up at G.L.A.M as a freebie offered in the store that was modifiable so we could colour it to whatever colour we wished. This is great to match, as I often find that the tights or stockings that I have, don’t match because of the slight difference in colour tone. I also played with a fun hair from Cocoluv. This hair comes with a colour changing turban that will also make it easier to match up.

Then I wore a pair of black boots that has hot pink shoe sole. So although it looks plain black, the pink underneath shows as I dance or walk.

And this is the fun look I got. All ready to go out dancing!!

The next one is one of the outfits Mell has that will be great for a party to which you might want to wear something not as formal as a ballroom gown but something fun and stylish. It’s called “Dress Pompom Black” and as the name suggests, has a pompom-like skirt with a top that has a sheer part both in the front and back in different shapes. It’s an outfit that is both sexy and sweet.

The stockings I wore here were a pair of stockings that was given out at the Styles of edo for free. It has a line at the back which are a kind of stockings I like a lot. Sometimes those lace or fishnet stockings are fancy but a bit too much and I tend to prefer these simple ones to match with outfits.

If you haven’t yet, try making a visit to Maria Bonita. I am sure you will have as much fun as I did.
