FASHION: Nemi Gown by Tres Beau. When working with formal wear or costume couture, I prefer to go high drama. To me, this particular type of garment and resulting photo is a model’s chance to go for a look that pushes past the norm and into that goddess zone. You don’t want to just catch an eye, you want a WOW. Ultimately, Kimmera’s Nemi gown seemed to best fit that bill. Originally created for Miss Nemi McCoy for the Miss Virtual World 2010 Pageant, this gown is a hands-down show stopper. I love the color and texture. The level of detail on the garment is amazing. You not only have a texture that includes jeweled draping hanging from the bodice, Kimmera has included the jewels to match down to the bindi. The consistency of the colors in this garment push it past your usual piece and into its own zone.

As for styling this particular garment, I chose to attempt to be true to the culture behind it and really tried to embrace everything about it. The skin is an Indian skin from Unique with make-up colors that compliment the gown. For hair, I chose a swept back look with a high, full pony. Something that I felt was reminiscent of the images that come to mind when you think of the classical goddess look. The Mandala bangles seemed the perfect compliment to the overall look and feel of what this woman would wear. As for the henna tattoos…well, this is SL and sometimes that means it is a chance for us to have something in our pixellated universe that we maybe haven’t had a chance to have in our real lives. I’ve wanted to have my hands and feet painted with henna tattoos for the longest time now. Would I really pass up an opportunity to use henna tattoos here? Heck no!



A Whole New World

I can show you the world
Shining, shimmering, splendid
Tell me princess, now when did
You last let your heart decide?

I can open your eyes
Take you wonder by wonder
Over, sideways and under
On a magic carpet ride

A whole new world
A new fantastic point of view
No one to tell us no
Or where to go
Or say we’re only dreaming

A whole new world
A dazzling place I never knew
But, now, from way up here
It’s crystal clear
That now I’m in a whole new world with you

Unbelievable sights
Indescribable feeling
Soaring, tumbling, freewheeling
Through an endless diamond sky

A whole new world
(Don’t you dare close your eyes)
A hundred thousand things to see
(Hold your breath it gets better)
I’m like a shooting star
I’ve come so far
I can’t go back to where I used to be

A whole new world
With new horizons to pursue
I’ll chase them aywhere
There’s time to spare
Let me share this whole new world with you

A whole new world
A new fantastic point of view
No one to tell us no
Or where to go
Or say we’re only dreaming

A whole new world
(Every turn a surprise)
With new horizons to purue
(Every moment red-letter)
I’ll chase them anywhere
There’s time to spare
Anywhere, there’s time to spare
Let me share this whole new world with you

A whole new world
That’s where we’ll be
A thrilling chase
A wondrous place
For you and me.
