Prêtresse de cristaux 3

Writing from Anniston, Alabama —

A little leftover business from Fantasy Faire; it never made it into the blog before the Faire closed, which is a pity.  I think this is one of my better — or at least wilder and most colorful — costume “builds.”  Here’s a first for me, by the way — I’m using a mesh body.  I finally broke down and bought Maitreya Lara, essentially because there’s a small number of designers who are choosing to work only in one mesh form or another.  What with the new Project Bento skeleton articulations coming in eventually, this will mean buying even more attachments or bodies at that point; personally, I’d rather not invest more gobs of virtual money in things I’ll probably be replacing within a year.  But here we are now.

This dress is worth it, from a completely fantasial viewpoint.  I cannot say if it is available in the main store yet; I don’t recall if this was a Fantasy Faire exclusive.  If not, you may want to check it out.  My inventory list I tacked onto this file (before I left home for a mini-vacation with the husband) shows the maker as “FANTAVATAR & MOONSTRUCK.”  And it is colorful, to say the least!  More color isn’t a bad thing, though, and so I added in the new Constella skin from Plastik, premiered at their store in FF Serenity, in Pandora shade.

All the rest beyond this is icing on the cake, so to speak.  I was trying for a sort of “cosmic priestess” look (admittedly, not an unusual thing for me), and so I dug stuff out and added things from stores or the Marketplace to achieve what I wanted.  The staff is a gacha piece from Cubic Cherry, as is the matching butterfly “halo.”  The other piece, also labeled a halo, is from The Stringer Mausoleum, but I haven’t seen it in their main store.  This may have been a gacha as well.  Once I get to where I can log back in world, I may do a little more research to find out for sure.  The earrings are vintage (though still available via Marketplace) from Paper Couture — ah, where now are the Lu Sisters when you want a breath of fashion fresh aire? — but the headdress comes from Modern.Couture, whose tiaras and Asian-inspired headgear are catching on at many events.  The prim nails on SLink hands are something new to me, and a little different; instead of fitting to hand size, you attach them to hand type.  So here, I’m actually wearing nails from two different sets, as I have the SLink Casual hand on the right to hold my staff, and the Elegant on the left.

As for the makeup, well, if you’re gonna have a cosmic queen, your makeup better be cosmic as well.  I really do like this look; between the skin and the cosmetics, I think I really did it this time.
