Remember the Doll Design Vogue?

Does anyone remember the brief meme craze that ran through Second Life Residents a few years ago, when we were all checking out various games at Doll Divine?  I did a few of those, and I recently came across those old photos again.

Wanting to see what I could come up with fresh, off I went.  Not only did I find the “Modern Mucha” game, which I liked so much for its utter femininity, but I ran into another game that let you dress up in clothes similar to some of the classic fashions designed by Erté for Harper’s Bazaar in the Twenties (or create your own take on the available pieces).  Here’s my latest pseudo-Mucha —

New Mucha

This could pass quite nicely today, I think!  The long, flowing strapless skirt, the dangling beadwork at several points giving glitter and accent to the gown, and the gauzy overskirt and matching stole work very well.

Shameless Commerce 2: Real Life Prints of My Original Art!

Many of you who read this blog may also be familiar with my original photographic work, on display at Flickr and Koinup. You may not know, though, that I sell prints of my better pieces in world at my store, Harper’s Fine Art and Photographs.

That is now extended to anyone who wishes to purchase a piece in real life.  Koinup’s partner, Bigoom, makes it possible for me to offer prints of my work in various sizes, from postal card for sending to your friends up to large sizes on high-quality paper, printed with eight-color plotters.  Please stop by my pinboard at Pinterest for my current catalogue, and you’ll be able to make your choices.  Please note that the price you’ll see quoted is the MAXIMUM LIST PRICE for the LARGEST SIZE AVAILABLE; please click through to see what the current prices are. A variety of sizes and prices are available!  For instance, one of my best pieces, Spirit’s Blessing, may be had in 17 different sizes, ranging from about $2.00 in postal card size (21 x 15 cm), up to about $85.00 for a full-size print on art canvas (100 x 67 cm).  Prices are quoted in both euros (as Bigoom is based in Italy) and U.S. dollars.

Please stop by and consider a purchase!  Ten items are currently available; more will be added with time, usually on a monthly basis.  Thanks much!
