More goodies from Gothmas By Gaslight to share with you today; a dress from the ROOTS AND WINGS GALLERY and a delicate choker from ISD. I’ve mixed these two together because they compliment each other so well; with both featuring winter tress as their main motif.
First up is the ‘Wintery Goth Dress’. This mesh dress is quite a frilly little number; it feels Victorian and certainly suggests past times. It’s quite flouncy, in fact to my mind it’s the shape of a dress that perhaps a servant would wear in role-play adventures. There’s a hint of Cinderella pre-transformation to it, in my opinion at least. What makes it stand out however is the texture that has been added by Eliza Cabassoun.
This imagery of stark winter trees is taken from a photograph that Eliza has taken herself in real life. I absolutely ruddy well love it when people bring elements of their real life artistry into Second Life, indeed it is Eliza’s mission to share her photography and poetry in-world, and that’s something that I really admire. You can read more on Eliza’s blog here and you can see selected photographic works by clicking this link.
Stacy Farspire is the designer behind ISD, and I read upon her notecard that she hopes the wearer gets as much enjoyment from wearing her creations as she did making them. Well Stacy, I did! This choker is a lovely companion piece to Eliza’s dress, and like the dress it’s a mesh item. It’s also a Gacha prize; you can win one of a multitude of different coloured chokers with each one featuring a wintry tree design. It really looks the part, and combined with the dress makes for a delicately Gothic outfit that perfectly reflects the season.
