Baroque Bo Peep

I am a sucker for costumes, especially Baroque and especially open skirts. When I saw Likka House’s Marie I knew I had to have it.

It reminds me of a Baroque Little Bo Peep…minus the staff. The bodice is tight fitting and square necked. It has lace at the neckline and bows down the chest. The three quarter length sleeves have bows at the elbows and finish in wide lace and material frills. All the textures are detailed and the design beautiful. The colours a pure candy shop baby blue and pink, with the main bodice in pale grey. The skirt starts with a hip ‘pelmet’ of sweeping folds of material with flowers decorating it. The skirt itself falls to mid calf length and is shorter at the front. The lace of the skirt provides modesty at the front whilst adorning the hem of the rest of the skirt. The back sports a flower ‘bustle’ with a bow whose ribbon falls down the back of the skirt. Pretty and fun.

In the same folder are stockings with bows, shoes to match, a choker and beauty spots. All can be seen here except for the cheek spot. I arranged this attachment so only the lower beauty spot reason?

The reason being is the skin I chose to wear with this outfit. Fleur Vivant Buff Dig Ophelia 2 has a beauty spot in almost the same place and I wanted to wear this skin as it has a soft and pretty make up to match the outfit. Unfortunately this skin is only available via TaP Shepherd inworld as Fleur no longer exsists.

To finish the whole look I chose Curl Up & Dye hair, Antoinette – WHITE. I tinted the bows to match the dress details and I think the piled high, powdered wig look just completes the whole ensemble.

Now, where did those sheep go???
