Love, how many times can a heart break?
Love, how much weight can a soul take?
And love, I don’t know where You ran off to…
But love, I still believe in You.
Oh look, I’m in pink! This is rare… so… don’t get used to it.
But I couldn’t help it today… this new dress from Dead Dollz made me feel extremely girly for some reason. It’s called The Miller’s Daughter gown… and for whatever reason, I couldn’t help but channel Little House on the Prairie meets Fairy princess. I don’t know. It’s a little strange, but it’s about the only time I’ve willingly worn pink and not cringed.
It should be noted, there are other colors of this gown, accessed via a hud. A blue, a plain white, a green, a black and this pink. I just happened to pick pink today and actually like it. So I stuck with it.
I had to pull a couple of things from past gacha events that I actually sorta forgot I had. Including the staff from Enfant Terrible… which, as much as I pulled that damn machine to get the staff in White, I’m pretty ashamed that I forgot I had it until I needed it. LOL.
Also, I don’t know if it’s just me… or what… but ever since I moved my computer from one place to another, every time I upload a picture from my computer to my blog, it doesn’t seem as sharp as it did in Photoshop. Again, maybe it’s just me… but if it’s not, then I promise they’re supposed to be much sharper. Heh. I don’t know how to fix it. -.-
Fun fact about the song used for today’s tune… I took a drive yesterday evening to clear my head for a bit… and, this should tell you how close I am to the border… I drove into Florida, stopped to get something for dinner, and turned around and came home. I had never heard this song before, until that drive. It was very relevant to me at the time, and I had to pull the car over and stop to listen to the lyrics. So I thought I’d share it today with this very fairytale-like outfit.
Some of you may have heard of an event called Enchantment. (Website link attached to the name, for more details!) The first thing that jumps out to me about this event, on the Designers’ “Application” (I use quotes because the event is invite only, but designers can ask for their store to be looked at by the staff) is that it truly brings back the meaning of “exclusive” items. The items created for Enchantment are never to be resold in that exact form again. They are truly exclusive to the event. Score one for those organizers! I like them already.
How Enchantment works, from how I understand it (I plan to participate this round, as I didn’t during the last one… so I’m operating solely on how I believe I understand it)… Designers design at least 2 exclusive items for the event: 1 to be sold in their store, and 1 to be offered as a ‘prize’ (more explanation on that in a moment.)
Shoppers purchase an item from the store, and inside that item’s folder is a stamp card. You can then collect stamps on the stamp card, and once you reach a certain number (or fill it… I’ve not seen the card, so I can’t say for sure), you are able to select ONE prize. Each designer makes a prize, so you have plenty to choose from. It sounds like a fun little event to me, and I look forward to seeing what the designers have done for this particular fairy tale.
Oh yeah, did I mention that each round’s theme is based on one of Grimm’s Fairytales? Love it!
Pictured above, you can see Dead Dollz exclusive item that was created to be sold with the stamp card for the event, The Miller’s Daughter choker. It reminds me of something incredibly classic, the ribbon choker with the pendent in the middle… but I love it. Maybe it’s because it reminds me of an elegant collar. Ever the slave, right?!
The dress, pictured more fully in the first picture, as well as below, is the creation that Kiddo has made to offer as a prize you can choose once you complete your stamp card. As I mentioned earlier, it comes with a hud that lets you choose between white, black, pink, blue, and green. The chokers are made in matching colors, as you can see.
This is Kiddo’s first delve into the fantasy realm of designing, bringing her elegant haute couture attention to detail into this side of the fashion circuit. I can neither confirm nor deny her presence in future fantasy events… *Smirks* However, I look forward to seeing more from Dead Dollz!
