Fit for a Princess: Future Ruler of Dragons

I Know You're Watching

The first Fit for a Princess Event is beginning today, April Fool's Day, and if it's a joke please don't ever tell me because everything on offer is completely lovely and there is even a shopping guide for people who want to look before they go. It goes until shortly before the end of the month when the sim will close for creators to set up for the next round of royal loveliness. There is a solid mix of clothing, hair, jewelry, shoes, poses, and some items to decorate a home - and even a tower to put everything in. The color scheme is highly variable, from pale pastels to rich, dark colors, and I decided to show some of them off with a very dark skin in honor of De La Soul making SLink appliers for his Lumi skins. This skin started on petites and then was sized up for the regular avatar, and I really adore the speckles on it and the magical shading. The dots continue all over, but you'll have to try it out yourself to see! The horns are from Lassitude & Ennui, and they are from We <3 RP; I initially wasn't going to keep them, but then the idea of a Dragon Princess occurred to me - and I ended up really liking the effect! Pretty much the rest of my look comes from Fit for a Princess, and you can see how amazing all of the offerings are. In particular, I want to note these poses from a new-to-me store named an lar; I particularly liked that for one of the front holding poses (see below) there was a regular version and one for a poofy skirt - those kinds of options really make a set of poses more versatile.

The hair, a long braid down the back, is from Milk and comes with a color-change HUD for easy tinting options. I'm wearing a pale blond, but there are all kinds of natural colors and several unnatural, so you have a lot of options. The long braid-tail is well rigged and moves with your lower body. I love the open front of the style, perfect for diadems and forehead jewels, and it comes with a leather band but I substituted in a crown from Keystone, which hang easily on the brow with tiny gems dangling down. Keystone's diadem comes in gold, silver, and onyx, and I really like how it fits across the forehead, though it gets lost a little in my spots. The gown, from Fission, is one of several offerings - including a shirt gacha - and is definitely fit for a princess. The style is a little more 1950s than 1250s, but princesses didn't stop being themselves when the Enlightenment happened, and I love the subdued Modern Princess Diana edge to this gown. The nails are from A:S:S and are a brilliant purple with subtle tones embossed on them - in this case I have little crowns - and it's one of several nail HUDs available. The final touches were a purse and a shoe set from Sysy's; the purse is one of many from a gacha and is simply lovely. It has a simple, sleek design and a slight bit of shine in the texture of the body. The shoes go with the SLink Medium feet and have a cute, offset bow with the same sparkles as the clutch, and a sweet open-toed design. Fit for a Princess really has made my dreams come true.
