The Gothic Madame by Danielle and Mr. X

Straddling the the line between fall and winter… life and death...Halloween is a time of celebration and superstition that dates back to the Celtic Festival of Samhain when bonfires were lit and  costumes worn. 

 Danielle has created a festive gothic inspired dressed called Gothic Madame that is just perfect for ghostly intentions!  As usual, Mr. X is wondering if he shall get a trick or  a treat.... I never kiss and tell!

 Gothic Madame is accentuated by an imperious stand up collar that is embellished by flowing ribbons that beguile.

Opulent hand length bell sleeves made of lace and tied with red ribbons flow in the moonlight.  A tight silk dress punctuated by heavily brocaded red and silver flowers draws the eyes up and down the dress.
The dress plunges in front and is intensified with a lace covering that stirs the imagination.

A trailing attached black train made of the most sumptuous black lace assures that no one will dispute your nighttime reign!

Gothic Madame Magic matching dagger like necklace and earrings displays a host of faceted ruby crystals and dangling earrings that create an elegantly eerie effect.

For Halloween, Danielle is offering Gothic Madame at a special price point in Black and Orange – replete with a spider web  cape.  Whatever color you choose,  wearing Gothic Madame ensures that you will be the Mistress of All!

This is the most powerful mesh photography studio built by Sparkie Hallard I have found in SL.  It not only holds unlimited avatars but the textures and avatars can be moved. There is no pose stand needed and you can rotate your avatar 360.  The size of the studio can be changed and comes with 110 animations, a series of different emitters and 65 textures.  It is also easy to add your own textures and AO.  It has a Flickr button to take you to the Flickr website to upload your photos and has a lighting drop menu that is easy to use and lets you control the intensity.

Mea Culpa Launches New Pretaporter Line

Mr. X said,  “Sita… it is like Christmas!”  I, of course, had to remind him it was close to Halloween not Christmas.  “Let me take you Mea Culpa – so you can check out Tatanka Kaligawa’s new Pretaporter Line – this collection is like beautifully wrapped gifts that sparkle and beckon, each is designed with Mea Culpa’s signature pizzazz!” Once again, Mr. X is correct – this new collection is like Christmas and best of all, everything is under 1000 L. 

One stand out for me is called “Electra”, perhaps named after the Greek Princess that was Helen of Troy’s sister. Electra is richly textured in a batik like pattern of swirling flowers and plants that mirror each other. Soft pink, dove white patterns are accented by green flowers and leaves that swirl gracefully on this to die for low cut gown with a plunging neckline and bare back.

Another great look is Nashira, as brilliantly designed as the star it was named after.  A long sleek skirt in a rich red brocade pattern is all at once confident and sexy. Nashira is mesh and comes in several sizes and colors.

A beautiful flowing bolero jacket swirls and sways. The design of the bolero with its semi-translucent edging adds to this charming and versatile design that will be equally comfortable at a classical music ball or a midnight stroll under the stars.

My favorite dress is called Sirius, the brightest star in the night sky.  Sirius is a dream in teal and magenta. Waterfalls?  Watercolors? Flowers? Starbursts? An illusionist’s pattern on this dynamically textured dress that suggests a secret world of impressionist images for Mr. X and I to discover.

Playful scalloped tiered sleeves add a vintage touch to this otherwise modern sleek design. The neckline is trimmed with a ruffled flower pattern that adds a touch of romance to the design.

Katawa is well known for his haute couture designs.  In his new line, he has taken his skills to design items that can be worn just about anywhere on the grid boasting his tell tale expertise at unusual textures.  Don't miss this... go check it out!
