Round about 2 weeks ago I was allowed to be part of a wonderful and exciting show done by FEROSH for the SLB12.
The big SL Birthdays are always very amazing done events and so it was a pleasure to be allowed to be part of that.
FEROSH was asked to do a fun show for the event and Absinthe and her Team chose a very special theme for that show.
“Marie Antoinette “Let them eat cake” 1780’s couture”
For the stylings of the show we got 2 sponsors, that supported FEROSH for that special show. AZUL and SoliDea FoliEs.
I had the pleasure to style one of the amazing AZUL gowns called “Francesca”.
I loved that dress so much for that theme because of the puffy, fluffy skirt and the amazing fabric with the dark delicate lace on the wonderful amethyst satin looking fabric.
It was the perfect base to create a modern “Marie Antoinette” look for that special event. We were told as well to see it as a fun show and to get crazy with our ideas That is something you do not have to tell me twice*giggles*
First I was looking for some huge hair, like those super high wigs that were so popular in that time. I found several ones but all that I found did more a classical look of that time period as that i wanted them too. So I went through my ‘special’ hair folder and found the “Lou” hair from Zibska”. I always loved the crazy and wild ideas of Zib Scaggs for her hair and clothing so, it was the perfect match for what I had in mind
To customize it a bit more towards the theme I added some cupcakes, which I made myself. While I was decorating the hair with the cupcakes, the idea of some more cupcakes on the dress was born as well :p
For the face I wanted a mystic touch as well as some hint to that time period as well. The “Vendetta Lips” from Madrid Solo come close of the heart lips, wich were very popular to the Marie Antoinette look, but we well they looked more modern and were going with my idea for the look so much better.
The amazing mask was made by Illusion and thanks to a color change menu I was able to match it to the rest of the styling. To get some more mystic and maybe dark touch, I added a laced eye mask under it.
To bring back the rose shaped parts of the dress I wanted some jewelry that picks up that idea but would not be too colorful. The choice fell on the “Shippoah” set from Mandala.
The show it self was one of the most fun shows I was allowed to walk lately and the FEROSH team and models made it really easy to have fun as well
Thank you Absi and all that was with me in that wonderful show for an amazing experience, that paired fun and professionalism!
