Penumbra: 1a : a space of partial illumination (as in an eclipse) between the perfect shadow on all sides and the full light (Merriam-Webster Dictionary)
Penumbra [in SL] is “…a very much anticipated one week event [that] takes the pioneer to display and express varied new styles in Second Life. The fashion fiesta, first and unique of its kind, is a contemporary platform envisioned and designed to unite established designers with designers who aspire being ‘BRANDS’ of tomorrow.” http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Knysna/139/216/3773 (It goes from Oct. 22 – 30)
Penumbra in SL occupies that space, between the light of established brands and the dark of anonymity. It gives newer designers an opportunity to show their creations and attract customers and aficionados, to make their mark in the fashion world.
And I am thrilled to feature a designer who is part of Penumbra: Petit Chat!
Petit Chat entered two outfits: Ella gown and Rendez-Vous pant and shirt combo. I decided to use some terrific poses by Image Essentials to display these items.
First, the Ella gown, with Burn It With Fire poses and props…I love the contrast of me wearing the elegant gown while trying to kill a poor, unassuming spider…although did you see how the spiders really multiplied??? These poses are the October exclusive from IE for Pose Lovers and in a gatcha set – perfect for pose lovers, gatcha addicts and Halloween enthusiasts! http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Favellas/223/178/1196 (It goes from Oct 14-30)
The gown is lovely, a silky sheath that flares at the feet, with velvety contrasts at the bodice and waist in six different colors. It’s beautifully designed to be sleek and a trifle sexy, demure and dignified while having elements of play incorporated. Perfect for your nights out to SL’s glamorous nightlife sites!
Rendez-Vous, the 2-piece outfit – although the 2 pieces of this outfit (top and pants) are sold separately, so you can create your own color combinations – is the other offering Petit Chat gives at Penumbra. The frilly 3/4 sleeve cropped sweater is a comfy addition to your fall wardrobe, cool enough for warm fall days, warm enough for cool fall nights. The checked pants, with matching belts, are woven and cling to the legs allllllll the way down. You would be forgiven if you thought the pants were simply a preppy-style addition to the sweater…until you take a second look at the sides of the pants, with the lacy cut-out all down the legs and rings of fabric connecting the two sides. Cleverly sexy, just like the top, and a great look to add to your wardrobe! I used the Swag poses, eight poses with mirror image poses, from Image Essentials and a backdrop of a disco floor – cause what else is more full of swagger than a dance-off? And these poses SCREAM attitude! These poses are from the Haus of Swag event from Oct 21 to Nov.4: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Heatherlands/21/100/29
Hurry…like any good thing, these events won’t last long! 🙂
PS – I apologize…the title is absolutely awful. What can I say…the Cubs were doing a terrible job when I finally got around to writing a title…I was emotional, I was devastated…
Oh who are we kidding, I’m a Cubs fan, I’m used to defeat…I just had a brain freeze when I was thinking of the title (although it was way easier to blame the Cubs!). 😛
