“For whatever we lose (like a you or a me),
It’s always our self we find in the sea.”
~ e.e. cummings
The theme for Enchantment this month is “The Little Mermaid,” and blessedly, instead of being inspired by a copyrighted cartoon, most designers opened their minds to sexier and more ethereal sea creatures. Kiddo Oh is presenting this seemingly basic black dress. I say “seemingly” because she has cleverly crafted the texture and dress so it’s beautiful even as you move into different poses (I am using Vestige Creations here). She has also textured the inside of the dress with a lovely purple so that you see peeks of it when you move. That’s craftsmanship, especially with the coordinating tentacle bracelets. You might think it’s just a black dress, but dress it up and it’s so much more, especially when you wear something as detailed as Mea Carnell’s exclusive for Enchantment, this lovely mermaid motif choker.
Inka Mexicola offers a beautiful new skin for Enchantment this month with subtly glossed lips and beautifully lined eyes. I paired it with Mina Nakamura’s windblown-hair from Kustom 9 in a fantasy white with dark roots. The curls provide movement without being a one photo look—you can actually wear this hair around and not look like it’s stuck in position!
