Blushing Brides

A couple of months back I fell in love with this Eria gown from Dead Dollz. I knew immediately that it would make for a gorgeous wedding gown, but I eschewed the idea of white and went for the nude, as a play on the whole “blushing bride” thing. I’m wearing it with one of Truth’s recent releases. Like his other newer releases this one has a hairstyle HUD with several options. I love messy, curly updos. I’m wearing my Chloe LeLutka head with a Glam Affair applier that was part of June’s LeLutka Powder Pack. The bouquet and pose are part of Foxcity’s Flower bento pose set.

The Blush Bride

When I decided to do this blog post, I originally intended to use my malt. But since I was doing the post in June – LGBTQ+ Pride Month – I decided to use my falt instead. It’s something very important to me, and by complete coincidence I’m posting this on the anniversary of the SCOTUS ruling that overturned DOMA here in the US. It’s fairly well known that I’m bisexual. It worked out that my soul mate was a man, and getting married was not hard for us. But sometimes I can’t help but think, what if it had worked out differently? While I cannot imagine loving anyone other than my husband, there’s no denying that I benefit from living the life of a heterosexual. Since bisexuality isn’t visible, no one knows by looking at me. I never forget the privilege that I get because of that.

To keep with the non-traditional color scheme, I picked a formal gown from Just Because that felt beachy but still formal, in the shade antique. I’m wearing Ingenue’s Lisbet sandals that are at the current round of Collabor88. I picked a blue shade because I wanted to add just a touch of tradition but in a unique way! Her hair is also from Collabor88, by Exile.

Ruffles & Lace

So, I feel in love with the Dead Dollz dress. And it’s one of those things I could never wear in RL because, lord it would itch. But I love it here in SL where nothing is itchy and everything feels like satin on your skin (or so I pretend). It’s such a crazy dress, with these tiers of ruffles and the tight fit… I loved it on my hips. I wanted to show it in two very different scenes, but I also wanted both to feel dreamy. The first pic I took at The Outer Garden, and the second I took at L’Arc en Ciel. Both places are beautiful, and at L’Arc du Ciel you can join the group for a small fee and get rezz rights. This is very handy for photographers and bloggers.

Don't wake me from this dream

The second picture I named Rebekkah. I showed a raw screengrab to my husband and asked what I should name it, and to be a wiseass he said the first name that came to mind… Rebecca. So I decided I’d go with it, in my own way. The crazy, wild, wonderful hair is from Exile for the OMG Unicorns round of Collabor88, and you still have a few days to go by there and grab the goodies. I’m not hugely into either unicorns OR pastels, but I still found plenty I wanted from this round, so even if the them doesn’t sound appealing, I’d say it’s worth checking out in person!

Rebekkah

This dress is a limited edition, and you can get it here. Only 100 copies will be sold, and as of right now there are 41 remaining.

On a final note, I was able to make this dress work with Maitreya’s mesh body, Lara. I was pretty happy about that, and figured it was worth sharing!
