In Time for Valentine's Day: A Wild Rose

The Wild Rose Steampunk Jypsy
Thinking of romance and Valentine's day I've taken this dress from moody purples into rambling wild roses. Gypsies and wild roses seem perfectly suited to each other. I was inspired to add a hat to this option rich ensemble, with an explosion of feathers at the back, and more gypsy coins as decoration. The metal corset that comes included has taken on an almost candy colored look.
The final word for the Wild Rose Steampunk Jypsy is "Edible".

Steampunk Jypsy, Winterfell Rose

Inspired in colors and feeling by the Winterfell sims and Winterfell's emblem, and most importantly, Miss Serra Anansi, I've created a Victorian take on the icon of the independent and free gypsy.

This was a Christmas release and it has absolutely nothing to do with Christmas. But that's just how I roll... 
This sexy, strong & free gypsy outfit is all about metal, lace and ribbons, and it started out as a FREE outfit (Yes! Get a free version at the Winterfell community center) and then I kept embellishing it. A Steampunk Jypsy outfit with about a TRILLION options for how you might wear it. There's more in the box than on the vendor pic as I couldn't cram that many variations and items into one picture. The full version includes a few extra special items plus many more layers of each item for as many looks as possible. OK, yes. It's got ribbons in common with Christmas; lots and lots of ribbons.... 
Maybe I'll make a red version for Valentines?
Suggestions for another color welcome.

The Vestements of Who?

OMG I've actually finished another outfit.
AND it's for men. Shocker of the century.(Actually it's also for women.)

Yes, It's true and I'm very proud of this one. The robe textures in particular. They have a nice rich velvet quality. Based on the 2009 robes seen in the new Doctor series. The oufit: robes and a short tunic along with trousers, with a timey whimey lordy symbol on the front. I've also thrown in a lovely old style skull cap, made by EzY McAlpine. I thought it added a nice traditional look. Personally I view these Prydonian colored robes all they were wearing as a consequence of the Time War and resuscitation of Rassilon. In my mind they are Time War era robes. But that's just me. I do prefer the traditional idea that all the different chapter houses have their own colors.
So, new product, not exactly Victorian, but woman/man does not live on bread alone! Sometimes we need a bit of time travelling too...

Also note: I've partnered with Hands of Omega to offer this and other role play avatar items under the new Visions of Pythia line. Some will be canon, like this one. Others simply my take on what Time Lord culture might wear, etc.
