Caledon & Winterfell unite
Today, I had the following brief conversation with Darkling.
Said she, "I'm trying on my dress for the ball!"
Said I, "What ball?" I've been living under the rock of finals week, and hadn't had a chance to attend to Caledonian news much.
"Why," Darkling said, "THE ball! The Caledon-Winterfell union!" The two continents have merged, you see, with the creation of the sim Caledon Cape Wrath. To bless the joining of the continents, TPTB decided to throw a to-do.
"I warn you," Darkling continued with her customary sly smile, "I look loovely in this frock; it'll be hard to outshine me."
Miss Raymaker is undoubtedly wearing a Vintage Clothing Reproductions frock, Skye Qi is her favorite designer
I was immediately thrown into a tizzy, and asked what colors she wore, so that I could at least complement such a fine dress. I didn't have time to shop, so I put on some old ~silentsparrow~ favorites, and added another beautiful hat from Elegance Hats.
Then, clothes all firmly in place, Darkling and I collapsed like Pre-Raphaelite maidens with too-tight corset stays.
Heliotropic Unsustainable is in the Paeoti Regal outfit and skirt from Nymphetamine
Later, there was the ball. I don't know why I bothered finding a frock, I danced half the night as my boy avatar anyway (the better to use the blue waltz ball). I got to salsa with Abigale Raymaker, one of my first friends in Caledon, and then met Miss Moo Money, the owner of the land that we were dancing upon. Miss Money is an old and well known denizen of SL, and it was very lovely to dance with her.
I covet Bela's skin from Nomine
After that, I danced with my RL turned SL friend, Heliotropic Unsustainable, and my final dance was with the stunning Bela Lubezki (I swear I didn't dance with her because we complemented each other's dresses, honest).
It was fun. Nothing like waltzing to a madrigal to make you feel like Christmas is here.
