CWS Styling Event: Creative All you can be Theme

I had a lot of fun being in tonight's show. I loved seeing all the unique looks, and I loved getting in touch with my creative side.

1st place:Diana Balhaus, 2nd place: Nickle Sparrotree, and 3rd place: Janda Sahara.

The Student winners= 1st place:Izadora Pelazzi, 2nd place: Meimei Shiu, and 3rd place:Flora Stipe.

 My look: Hello and welcome everyone. My name is Melea and tonights theme is Styling Creative All You Can Be.   For tonights theme I let my love of nature inspire me.  A very unique designer, Lady Thera (aka Thera Taurog) was a remarkable discovery for me as she takes famous paintings and turns them into fabulous fashion designs.  I absolutely love her work and am very inspired by her. I am wearing a dress called "Nino Heartsdale" by Lady Thera. The painting the dress was created from is entitled "Primi Fiori" and was painted in 2006 by Nino Heartsdale.  Nino derived the inspiration for the painting from a photograph of a frangipani flower growing in her garden. The painting is in acrylics.  Lady Thera took this painting and made a dress that makes anyone feel like a walking flower.  I love how the flower petals move and flutter around me as I walk.  I feel connected and one with nature.

I am also wearing:
Skin= Elke Amaretto by Dulce Secrets
Shoes= Noir Stiletos by HOC
Jewelry= 2009 AG double pearl black
Makeup= Lace Red by Lovely Mi
Hair= Miranda-sangria by >TRUTH<

Thank you to Anrol, Steve, our announcer tonight, and our guest judge. I hope you all enjoy the show!

CWS Styling Event: Japanese Theme

I really enjoyed tonight's Japanese theme, it was a lot of fun creating a look. AmyChristine Warcliffe was the nights judge.Winner:Sidney Abbot, 2nd:Meimei Shiu, and 3rd:Kenshin Xevion.

My look: Hello and welcome everyone. My name is Melea. Tonights theme is Japanese. I chose to represent the Geisha. The geisha who worked within the pleasure quarters were essentially imprisoned and strictly forbidden to sell sex in order to protect the business of the Oiran. A geisha's appearance changes throughout her career, from the girlish, heavily made-up maiko, to the more sombre appearance of an older established geisha. Different hairstyles and hairpins signify different stages of a young girl’s development and even a detail as minute as the length of one’s eyebrows is significant. Short eyebrows are for the young and long eyebrows display maturity. The traditional makeup of an apprentice geisha features a thick white base with red lipstick and red and black accents around the eyes and eyebrows. Geisha always wear kimono. Apprentice geisha wear highly colorful kimono with extravagant obi.

Kimono: by "GB"
Hair: Tukinowaguma Yoshika Ebony
Eyes: Eyes_black by "Sweetaholic"
Skin: Snow Skin Androgynous by "Dulce Secrets"
Makeup: Lovely Mi-Madame X
Fans: by "A&M"
