Veiled Illusions

We interrupt this regularly scheduled Halloween-themed post to squee about the Jewelry Expo a bit.

Let me first tip my metaphoric hat to Miriel Enfield for all of her hard work and perseverence.  This has to be one of the most pleasant and lag-free Expos I’ve ever attended.   Every future expo organizer should come to her for lessons.

Now onto the goodies.

There were many many beautiful things there, but in today’s post I’m going to focus on the offerings from Siyu Suen of Illusions.  Her mastery of the sculpted prim is truly a marvel.  I keep thinking she can’t get any better, and she keeps proving me wrong.

Like all of her releases, these sets are delightfully scripted with an infinite variety of fabric, metal, and stone selections.   Note to all jewelry designers:  I’m much more likely to buy your creations if I can change the colors to match my outfit.

For the Expo, Siyu has released 4 Jewelry and Veil sets.  You simply must see the veils in person, as she sculpted them to actually fit over the shape of a face.  They even fit over my prodigious schnoz!

The Amirah set, with its intricate and beautiful frills and curls.  Shown in Antiqued Silver and Black.

These silks from Miriel make me sad that she’s never made another set.  I especially love the cut of the bottoms, which prove that you don’t have to wear a thong to be sexy

The Bahiya set, my personal favorite.  Shown in Antiqued silver and Black.

This is my staple set of silks.  I adore harem pants, and I’m not sure why there aren’t more available in SL.

The Suleika set, shown in Antiqued silver, Blue, and Sodalite stone.

The Madiyah set, shown in Antiqued Silver, Black & White, and Black Onyx.

SLurls after the cut.

    I believe the expo- for having almost 80 designers on one sim has the best time dilation I’ve ever seen.
