I wish I could tell that everything that I am wearing here was free, but it wasn't. I splurged a bit, and bought a dress and skin that I'd been contemplating for awhile. Combined with some pieces that I already had in my wardrobe...
The club Gothika in Cursed has a themed formal masked ball the last Wednesday of every month. Last night's theme was Desaturated, as in B & W movies. Dare Munro of Dare Designs even designs a special one-time use ballroom to fit the theme of the dance. For last night's event, he designed a lushious Art Deco inspired piece that made me feel like I was in a 1930's movie musical... all done up in black, white, and shades of gray.
Like I said, it was a masked event...
I wish I had taken some pictures in the build, but my computer was being fussy, and it was all I could do to keep from crashing every time I tried to turn around. As it was, I crashed four different times I think.
Like many clubs, Gothika had prizes for best costume for night's theme. And I am very happy, not to mention shocked, to say that I tied for best women's costume! My prize was a nice purse full of linden's which more than off-set the L$700 that I spent on the dress and skin.
Here are some more pictures of the entire ensemble...
