"Cleopatra" was...vaguely inspired by the dress worn by the actress in this summer's Shakespeare production. I sort of took the idea and let inspiration take me where it wanted to go this time. This outfit is full of options and accessories, and perfect for your Halloween debute as the infamous beauty. "Cleopatra" includes two linen shirts (one sheer, one not) to be worn with (or not if you're daring) a skin tight wrap dress. Gold and gems adorn the top edge, just under the breasts, and the hem. That's just the dress. For accessories, there is a gold and silver headdress featuring ankhs, scarabs and golden wings, golden cuff bracelets with silver ankhs, an overdress of sheer gold cloth, and a signature Egyptian styled collar, studded with gemstone cabochons. This set is available in 6 colors.

"Ophelia" like the other Shakespeare dresses, is based on the costume worn in the summer production I was in. This dress is perfect for high medieval fantasy. Crushed and smooth velvets with gold edging, studded with matching gems, and long gauzy golden drape sleeves. Available in 6 rich gem tones.
Up next week! "Cleopatra"!

Recently I was in a RL "Summer Shakespeare" stage production. Inspired by all the costumes, I decided to make SL versions of them. I'll be releasing these medieval gowns one per week. I forgot to blog about last weeks release, so here's the makeup post, plus the new release!
"Juliet" is inspired by the gown worn by the actress portraying Juliet during a Summer Shakespeare production I participated in. Sparkling pastel satin, beadwork on the upper arms, fur trim and long belled sleeves...all trimmed with blood red brocade. To quote a friend, its "Foreshadowing in fabric". Available in 6 colors.
"Kate" the infamous 'shrew' of Shakespearian legend has finally arrived at Fantasia. Late of course, but...well it's not like she cares. "Kate" takes some inspiration from aristocratic Italian fashion from the renaissance era, featuring thick velvet with golden brocade overlay, a lowered empire waist to hint at the form underneath, all over a clean white chemise with full sleeves. This costume was a joy to wear (while running from my Petruchio) and I hope you all will enjoy this virtual version. Available in 6 colors.
