Second Life fashion meets Real Life fashion.

Below you see the lovely Jema Hewitt, period and vintage clothing designer extraordinaire. I made this dress thinking of her Second Life character, Emilly Ladybird, and her love of red. She was, in turn, inspired to reproduce it in real life. I've placed the original dress version underneath the RL creation for reference. I couldn't be more thrilled! It's pretty exciting to see one's imagination made real.
Please visit Jema's website and peruse her amazing work.
She also creates lovely Steampunk jewellery which you can see here:
