PurpleMoon ‘Sa-rang’ Caoimhe MVW 2012 Evening Gown

Miss Virtual World 2012 may be over, but the gorgeous, custom-created gowns from Second Life‘s premier beauty pageant are only now just being released to the public. I’m working my way through styling up all the ones I can afford, starting with beautiful designs from PurpleMoon for this year’s contestants. I had a fun time styling this strikingly gorgeous gown today for my work shift at PurpleMoon.

This stunning creation was made for Miss South Korea Caoimhe Lionheart to wear in the Miss Virtual World 2012 evening gown competition and is now on sale at PurpleMoon. My thanks to the creators of the lovingly crafted Japan Project Garden II, Wanda Lake location for making such a spectacular place to take photos!

“Fashion is a kind of communication. It’s a language without words. A great hat speaks for itself.” author unknown

“Fashion is a kind of communication. It’s a language without words. A great hat speaks for itself.” author unknown

A hat is a shameless flatterer, calling attention to an escaping curl, a tawny braid, a sprinkling of freckles over a pert nose, directing the eye to what is most unique about a face. Its curves emphasize a shining pair of eyes, a lofty forehead; its deep brim accentuates the pale tint of a cheek, creates an aura of prettiness, suggests a mystery that awakens curiosity in the onlooker. (Jeanine Larmoth)


Let’s face it, to a lot of avatars, one of the most inspirational pieces in Second Life are hats! Hats, tall ones, frilly ones, artsy ones, and most of all day to day ones! Where I live in the “real world” there isn’t any need for hats, accept perhaps in the summer to ward against sunburn, so one of my greatest joys in Second Life is to don all these magnificent hats that I couldn’t possibly afford in real life. And with increased inworld interest in them, the truly talented milliners have made their presence known.

One of these people is Petalos Clary of Baoba. Today, being in a post Miss Virtual World relaxation mood, I decided to keep it simple for a day of hanging with friends. I am wearing the Velvet Black cap, a sporty velvet “newsboy” cap, the black velvet accentuated with a light smattering of polka dots! To make the hat playfully glam, Baoba included two chicly gauzy hibiscus type flowers. The overall affect of added details in this hats appearance take it from run of the mill, to over the top in elegance.

If you are looking for the defining accessory for whatever you are wearing a particular day, check out Baoba, I know you will find a hat that will make you Gorgeous! After all, saying you don’t look good in a hat is like saying you don’t look good in shoes! So I will leave you with a quote from noted author Felecia Mcmillan, author of Crowns-Portraits of Black Women in Church Hats, “We just know inside that we’re queens. And these are the crowns we wear.”  Taxi:
