113 ~ A mask to hide her heart

It was just a dance.  Just some made-for-fun masquerade, where everyone would dress up, dance, and forget their troubles.  Unless their troubles were dancing with them.  Hers would be.  Possibly.  He was certainly escorting her.

She'd painstakingly searched for just the right gown, just the right ring to represent her favorite character.  She was dressed to the nines and when he came in to help her with her necklace, to help with any finishing touches, he took her breath away.

It was a moment when she felt she could identify with the anguish that was felt so often by writers of the classic books.  The ones tormented by their emotions, so desperately in need of healing of the heart, which evaded them.  It often ended in tragedy, the pain so overwhelming... or in romance.  She knew which way her story would end.

A viciously cruel twist of the fates, this love triangle.  It was one that could never end her way.  He looked so devilishly handsome, standing there, wearing an almost-matching collar set to her ear cuffs and mask.  If only the mask could hide the longing in her eyes as she stared up at him.  He  had to know.  It was evident in every breath she took.  And yet - his love was destined for another.

The inspiration for the gown was innocence and loss - something known all too well by Elizabeth from this round's book for A Tattered Page.

The black and bone color set of this unique ring series will not be available after the A Tattered Page event!

The Doctor had always been fascinated with the secrets of nature, the inspiration behind the pieces from ISD.  Aether is the exclusive color for the event, though you can still find the basic elements represented in-store after.  

The necklace was fashioned after the one that so touched Frankenstein's heart when he saw it on a young wearer.  The creators have gone so far as to set up a photo shoot in SL, representative of the mother that the image was to be of, and play with lighting and settings to make it more "real."

There is a lot of beautiful detail work in the chandelier and vanity set.  Sadly, this picture just doesn't do justice to all the work that you will see when you zoom in closely to the metal work done on this.

I also love the details in this vest.  And who says that hair is specifically for a man or woman?  I think Niko rocks this hair from Magika... but then, the man always does look good.
