Daily Lolita: Chocolate Paradise

January 13th, 2014

Second Life is a magical place. You can find almost anything there, including a replica of Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory! I’ve been debating off and on about blogging this dress. The fabric was taken from the real life dress “Chess Chocolate” by Angelic Pretty. It’s definitely Lolita, and it combines a mesh top with a flexy skirt, which I love. However, the craftsmanship leaves a lot to be desired. I will lay out my complaints for you and let you decide if it’s worth it or not.

*Note: A lot of the issues could be fixed if the skirt was mod, but it’s not.
1. The skirt is flat in the front making it difficult to wear if you do not have wide hips or if you are roundy like me.
2. For the bigger size, the bottom of the mesh top sticks out farther than the skirt. If you try to resize the skirt to go over it, there is a gap in the front and back of the skirt where it meets the belly and back.
3. The texture of the fabric is backwards (the letters are reversed) and there wasn’t a lot of effort taken to line up the texture on the bottom.
4. There is A LOT of movement in the skirt when you walk or shift positions.

Now that’s all out of the way, I had fun making this coord. Again, I used my blouse from G Field. It’s my favorite for versatility and style. I paired the dress with my Honey Kitty chocolate accessories and got the matching shoes from Rini Hime. This is the newest Rosy Mood hair, and it’s quickly becoming a favorite of mine. The purse was from KUE!, which is gone unfortunately. I love the pattern on my nails from by Snow. Now excuse me while I eat my way through this sim!
