A Darker Season

Posted by Caliah Lyon on September 27, 2007

The month of October, and Halloween, draws nigh, and with it its balls and costume parties and masquerades.

It’s fitting that these outfits here have a slightly darker, yet elegant edge to them, though I feel it’s too early yet to don a mask. Nicky Ree’s Swan Queen in Black is a dramatic ensemble appropriate for the season, and I couldn’t resist including it in my style diary post during my break. I rather like how the feathers in the skirt look like brush strokes from a painting in this particular photo.

I may be on a short break with smaller releases rather than large ones, as I’ve decided to move stores, and the preparation will likely last all month, even if it’s already underway. I’m hoping I won’t be too overworked for new releases and freebies. Stay tuned 🙂

Monochrome

Posted by Caliah Lyon on August 11, 2007

I’m still in a dream-state over some of the runway shows for fall. Limited as your choices in SL are, the latest releases have offered us a chance at capturing the stark elegance of the season.

One of these, Saeya Nyanda’s Wilted Wednesday Vest, is a must-have for your wardrobe. I photographed it here coupled with one of Bare Rose’s newest designs, Noble Fleur, and a glittery Paper Couture skirt to add a touch of glamour to the richly textured black of this outfit. A pair of ankle-strap stilettos would suit this look as well, and I would recommend using a different pair of black gloves.
*The Fleur brocaded coat has a set of ties up the front that may detract from the overall look, so I lowered the front of the collar to 0 in appearance mode. Click for larger versions of the photos.

Armour
Outfit: Wilted Wednesday Vest from Kyoot; Noble Fleur Seducer in Silver from Bare Rose (top, coat skirt, and arm ruffles) tinted dark grey; Undershirt from the Satin Pantsuit with Bowtie Neck by G.L.A.M; Stray Horse skirt from Paper Couture, remade into a slender, longer skirt to fit under the coat. Tights are from the Attendant outfit from Bare Rose, tinted dark grey; gloves from the “Vincent” outfit from Bare Rose, shortened. Earrings from the Muse Claris Black Pearl set in Silver.
Hair: Anisa/Anne from ETD (modified combination of both hairstyles)
Shoes: Quinn in Black from Last Call Vamp.

Cigarette holder is optional 😉

This look is vaguely reminiscent of “upscale newsboy” *laughs* Another example that monochromatic grey and black does not necessarily equate to formal or gothic. This outfit was based on the gorgeous pants from the Jersey Girl outfit by Alla Ruff. I exhausted myself looking for a pair of sleek black boots, but nothing in SL at the moment fits, so I gave up and created the pair I should have made months and months ago, of both sculpted and ordinary prims.

Grey
Left: Undershirt and shirt from the Satin Pantsuit with Bowtie Neck by G.L.A.M.; Pants from Jersey Girl, by Veschi; Devyn Hair and Hat from Moderno; Black Socks from the Kushukushu Kutsushita set from Shop Seu; gloves from the “Vincent” outfit from Bare Rose; High Class Evening Bag from the Diamond Cocktail Set from Deux Filles; Muse Sleek Black Boots, by Caliah Lyon (unreleased). Earrings from the Claris Black Pearl set in Silver & Classic Tank Watch in Black/Gold from Muse.
