Bal Masqué   Leave a comment

bal-masque-1

There’s a flutter of grey through the trees:
Ah, the exquisite curves of her dress as she passes
Fleet with her feet on the path where the grass is!

bal-masque-2

I see not her face, I but see
The swift re-appearance, the flitting persistence—
There!—of that flutter of grey in the distance.

bal-masque-3

It has flickered and fluttered away:
What a teasing regret she has left in my day-dream,
And what dreams of delight are the dreams that one may dream!

bal-masque-4

It was only a flutter of grey;
But the vaguest of raiment’s impossible chances
Has set my heart beating the way of old dances.

— Arthur Symons, “To a Grey Dress”

Building a Story Set

Melanda 1

When I do storyboarding for my short fiction, as I’m doing a lot of lately for the story based on “Like a Thief In the Night,” I like to get as detailed a set as possible, so that I’ll have the place my characters inhabit as clear in my mind as I can.  When we first meet Melanda, Duconna Ceal of Eldav, we’ll see her in the office of a doctor specializing in biosculpt and cosmetic enhancement technology.  Not surprisingly, though, there aren’t many places even in Second Life that boast a biosculptor’s office and exam rooms.  So I was forced to build one for myself and my partners.

Denim To the People!

“Jeans represent democracy in fashion.” — Giorgio Armani

COCO Uber 1

I think I’d stretch that quote to denim overall.  (“No, not overalls, ya nimrod; go get your ears flushed.”)

Making an Entrance

Making an Entrance 1

If anyone can Make an Entrance, it’s Ariel Sherman, who (at the time of these photos) lives in the 48th Century. Cyborg, onetime unwilling “courtesan” in a pleasure house on the planet Videra,  now the owner and star artiste of her own revue, the largest and finest show in the sector! She’s earned her reputation over decades of acting, singing and dancing, and she has decades more in her future.

My mama always told me
There were two ways to come into a party
Polite and Genteel
Or Make an Entrance

Truman Capote Would Approve

Sascha's Designs in Mignonne 1

Finally, a few minutes to sit down, shoot a few photos and write!  I’ve started checking out the bare bones of Corona, the venue in Mignonne that is getting login-page and Destination Guide exposure.  I haven’t made it farther than this mansion, but it’s as luxurious and Old World regal as one could wish.

I’m visiting here in this dress from Sascha’s Designs.  Sascha Frangilli is definitely into HUD dresses lately, and this model, Joelle, is a nice one, with five different designs in black and white.  This is one of my two favorites — simple and classic.  It doesn’t need much in the way of display to liven it up, because it speaks so strongly for itself.

Sascha's Designs in Mignonne 2

The one splash I take here is in the jewelry — something big, new and frivolous from Belle Roussel, but still holding to the primarily black-and-white theme.  If Truman Capote were around to throw a Black and White Tea Party instead of a formal ball, I think that he just might approve….

O is for — Orange

In salute to the inauguration of the new King and Queen of the Netherlands, her home country, Sascha Frangilli has created a new gown named Queen Máxima, in the orange of the Royal House.  It will be right in the front of the New Items section of Sascha's Designs, and at a very special price.

The first thing that occurred to me for O in Vanessa Blaylock’s alphabetical inventory challenge was orange; and this gown from Sascha’s Designs, which I featured last year for the inauguration of King Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands, is as orange as it gets.

E is for — Ebony

E is for Ebony 1

Ebony is the theme for today’s paw through my inventory; and the ebony here is represented by almost everything I’m wearing.  The hair is the item that began this plunge, an old, elaborate updo from Tukinowaguma.  Tuki hasn’t released any new styles in a very long time, but the store is still in existence, if much reduced in size from what it was at the apex of their success.  (I wonder if it was an inability to cope with the change to mesh that did them in?  Some of their longer styles could benefit from a mesh treatment, so they don’t get lost in your shoulders.)

E is for Ebony 2

The gown is also vintage, a nicely poufy piece from Sascha Frangilli; and the suite of onyx jewels come from EarthStones.  Everything is listed below.

The details:

Skin: Issigonis Ayumi (no longer available, though the store exists.  They only carry two skins or shapes now.)
Eyes: Sterling Artistry Jeweled Eyes (tourmaline)
Hair: Tukinowaguma Serene (Ebony)
Gown: Sascha’s Designs Sassebas No. 4 (black)
Shoes: Detour Glamour Metallic Pumps (black; no longer available)
Jewelry: EarthStones Karuka suite (earrings, ring, necklace and cuff bracelet, gold/onyx and mixed jewels)
Makeup (in application order): Glamorize Arista Eye Makeup (BlackSun); BOOM Liquid Glaze (lashed black); Glamorize Dirty Babe Lips (Bleeding Fire)
