A Dream Within – Poet’s Heart

“A Dream Within…” is a charity event for Crohn’s and Colitis UK (info: http://www.crohnsandcolitis.org.uk/) and is inspired by Edgar Allan Poe.

Why Crohn’s and Colitis UK? Crohn’s Disease is a treatable illness, but not curable, also the cause is still unknown. Many people have never even heard of this illness, but with time the symptoms and side effects of Crohn’s will get worse (anaemia, short bowel syndrome, malnutrition, DVT… etc the list is going on and on), and it sometimes gets life threatening. With the growing number of patients diagnosed each year it is vital that the research towards this illness is well funded, that soon they will finally find a cure so future patients will not have to face the huge impact of Crohn’s on their lives.

Why Poe? There is no other like him. Each designer was assigned to a different verse/part of one of Poe’s poems and was asked to interpret it into a creation, a visual composition of theirs.

50% of the income of each design will go to Crohn’s and Colitis UK, but there will also be donation boxes dotted around. Your Chariot.

EVENING STAR

‘Twas noontide of summer,
And mid-time of night;
And stars, in their orbits,
Shone pale, thro’ the light
Of the brighter, cold moon,
‘Mid planets her slaves,
Herself in the Heavens,
Her beam on the waves.
I gazed awhile
On her cold smile;
Too cold- too cold for me-

Sunshine and Butterflies

With the help of a collection of Hope For Emilia designers, this outfit is all about sunshine and butterflies.  I find it an interesting combination of warm, fluttery, and fierce, starting with Miss Darcy’s sleek yellow mesh Marilyn dress in the color of Stella de Oro lilies.

Butterflies flit through the flowers of my hat and gently perch on my cheek to say hello.  Couture eyelashes from Boudoir and sweeping makeup from White Widow add a touch of exotic.   Coordinated with EMO-tions Yula hair, one of my favorite hairs for headbands, hats and other accessories, I am just a little ray of sunshine wherever I go.

Siren’s Song

While browsing the Fantasy Faire, I stumbled across my friend and White Armory colleague Theta Marseille’s (Cooperstone) Mermaid Treasures Boutique booth on the Siren’s Secret sim.  As a sometimes mer on another avi of mine, I have been a fan of her work for sometime.  Her shop looked great, and I dropped her a line to tell her that she seems to be becoming one of the forerunners of mer fashion and accessories these days from what I’ve been seeing.  She sent me the lovely Mer-Mesh Mermaid in Purple, one of her Relay For Life offerings, as a friendship gift, telling me I didn’t have to blog it.  Well…it is simply too stunning not to share with you all, with its iridescent scales and mesh fit that works even without a mer ao, and secondly, it is a Relay For Life item, a very worthy cause.  So it is my pleasure to share with you the fish that DIDN’T get away.
