It Was Only a Kiss…

Filed under: Mix and Match,Theme Outfits — Van Kline @ 3:29 pm

We decided to continue our rock and roll fashion series with a modern sort of glam rock look, inspired by The Killers beautiful video “Mr. Brightside”. We loved the fantasy burlesque setting, and the song and story all come together to create a really moving experience.

All of our photos are unedited and taken in-world, but Candy went to even greater lengths than usual to craft the set for this shoot. She spent hours searching stock photos, uploading textures, and creating this multi-layered background to achieve the perfect look – not to mention the time spent in windlight.

Van is the spitting image of heartthrob front man Brandon Flowers. We just picked up this hot Liscio vest in tarnished gold from Armidi, which goes great with the velvety patterned blazer from Shai Delacroix’s Amorsolo suit. The outfit was completed with shirt and slacks from the charcoal Power Suit by Blaze, a “killer” pair of red Storm Schmooz dress shoes, and a buttoneer from the Bare Rose “Bloody Rose” outfit. It’s worth mentioning that some Bare Rose item has been featured in every post we’ve done so far; June Dion’s work is the standard of value by which all our other purchases are judged.

Candy, of course, is playing the faithless muse that tortures poor Brandon in the video. The look starts with the Muse gown from, you guessed it, Bare Rose. Her porcelain complexion is thanks to a Rosemar freebie skin, one of her favorites. It was free to group members – a one time fee of L$250 gains access to frequent, quality freebies. Her hairstyle, “Pani” by Mirai Style, is a perfect match. First seen on Gogo’s Blog, Mirai Style is full of big, sexy, and funky styles. Bare Rose makes yet another appearance with the Crystal Ageha pumps. Look for these glass slippers in an upcoming “Cinderella” themed post. The very sexy garter belt is from YIP’s Magician’s Assistant outfit. It’s surprising we haven’t featured anything by four Yip sooner. Candy is always lounging about the house in her lingerie, and she is constantly giving away amazing freebies.
