Aria and Alpha

Aria and Alpha 1

The location is The Place — though not that place.  (Ten points, a free God’s Blessing, and a trip to the chalk line if you can tell me which place that place is, and why.)  And you would not believe what I’ve went through to get these few photos.  There were more, but I had no shadows at the first place I tried, and then I forgot to save the gown the first time through, and lost track of a headdress I was wearing — I have headdresses across so many different spots in Inventory, I hate as a librarian and a supposedly “organized” person to admit it.  I’ve finally said, “To hell with it,” and I’m going with the basic gown I put together, sans headdresses, staffs, and other magical adornments.  But what a dress, and what adornments I do have in here.  First of all, the gown is PurpleMoon — need we say more?  When Poulet Koenkamp does it, she does it right.

But then I added in an accessory that I saw in a photo of Katt Magnusz taken by Hethwen Collinwood, and I said to my self, “Self, you gotta have that stole, or collar, or whatever it is and do a photo of it yourself!”  So, with a little bit of nagging, uh, pestering, uh, research, I found out who made it, and bought — the dress.  It doesn’t come as a separate.  But the price is reasonable, and adding it in to almost any gown gives it that extra bit of beauty, luxury and just plain over-the-top glamour.  Adding in jewelry wasn’t too difficult — I found a suite from AvaWay, and juiced it up just a little with some added rings from Chop Zuey — including my wedding band for RL, of course.  (I don’t wear it enough in world, but here it is now.)  Top, uh, bottom it off with shoes from Glamistry, and I should be ready — even if I’m not wearing a fairy-tale spray of blue roses in my hair and carrying a staff.

Ah, well — I didn’t want to be in a staff meeting, anyway.
