Designers United… for Jellyfish!

August 16, 2009

Get ready to squee: yesterday the Designer’s United Event opened!  This time the theme was Jellyfish, a very appropriate theme for August in my neck of the woods.  The range of creations is amazing… everything from poses to hair to clothing and accessories, with some interpretations of jellyfish being more literal than others.  In any case, the proof is in the Lindens– I could not reel in my shopping impulses and I promptly bought out the whole store of things for my virtual closet.

Is that crazy of me?  You be the judge:

First off– the skin.  JM:Mai has created two versions of a Jellyfish skin, and this one is called water.  It is utterly lovely, with freckles and a translucent glow that really does recall the look of a jellyfish, but in a non-costumey, flattering and wearable way.   The makeup on the face is all courtesy of the skin, but the tattoo below the neck is not.  That is an adorably affordable creation from Duboo, rendering Jellyfish as cartoonish and colorful things which… well, I would like to IMAGINE they are.

Adding to the adorable factor of this outfit is the uber-fun two tone hair from Ohmai, which has my fave ginger as the base with a big streak of lemony yellow threaded in the braid from the back.  There are other color combinations available, too, and the style is so hipster and does mimic jellyfishy tentacles very cleverly.

The bustier top is from This is a Fawn, and while it is not the most literal of jellyfish interpretations, it certainly is squeelicious and has great gradiation of colors and texture!  I paired that with some freebie tights from Royal Blue, and some genius poofer shorts from Gigi, for a funky little hipster Jelly girl look.
