52 Weeks of Color – Cobalt

This one was harder for me than I’d have expected. I have a fondness for blue, but none of my blues were quite right. Then I remembered this dress. You’ll probably recognize it. It’s all over flickr right now, and Plurk. The talented and lovely Anyalia Pearl of Spright (not yet open) made this dress for Culture Shock. Anya is one of my dearest friends, and I couldn’t be more thrilled to see her dress getting so much very well earned praise. Trust me people… she put a LOT of work into this bit of adorable I’m about to share.

Cobalt - 52 WOC

I knew as soon as I saw this dress that I wanted to pair it with these espadrilles from Gos. I love these sandals. I’ve added a bunch of colors to them (that’s one of my favorite things about many of the shoes at Gos – you can add on colors rather inexpensively, and play with cool combos), but for this I went with simple white.

I also just got a new skin (yes, another one) from Izzie’s. It’s part of the Skin Addiction event, which you can read more about on this Seraphim post. Also new is my hair! It’s from Wasabi Pills. It, like my dress, is mesh. However, you can edit the texture on this hair, so I brightened the red a little. I love Wasabi Pills, but like many hair stores, none of their reds are quite right. Fortunately, with a bit of tinting help, I can still make them feel like my shade. This hair is at the Zombie Popcorn event. For more details, click here.

The skin is really pretty, and it comes with tons of eyeshadow and lipstick options. There’s also a freebie of eyeliners at the event, but you need to wear the Skin Addiction tag to get it (it’s free to join the group, so just look it up). I’m really in love with Izzie’s skins. They’re soft, feminine and the basic skin is fairly natural, making it easy and fun to glam up with makeup layers.
