The Darker Side

To enter a fantasy world means, sometimes, to enter a world of darkness and grief. It’s actually really about the emotional depth, the passion of touching that which is most frightening, succumbing to the.. well.. inevitable.

The Darker Side

This ensemble might be perfect for such a time. First, the dress is by Avrele Guisse. I have had the pleasure of watching Avrele’s development as a designer—her line exists under the umbrella of House of RFyre. Avrele has pushed her abilities and aesthetic over the year she has been in SL. She recently released this gothic dress under my nose, one of her best, in my opinion. She did all sorts of things right with this, from the great use of a draped texture on the skirt with shifting repeats, a sheer mesh bodice, and a sexy low cut back with a provocative spine decoration.

I paired it with this pale skin from Keiko Morigi of &Bean, one of her offerings for The Potter’s Field. With its blue eye and cateye liner, black lips and delicate shading (especially under the eyes and around the lips), it’s a painterly representation of a gothic look. It’s certainly not for everybody, but for those who like a more deathly look, they can’t go wrong with this romantic skin.
