Mizu: I'm a Little Cloud

I recently enjoyed the interactive story of Mizu (Guide Part One | Part Two), and part of that enjoyment was dressing up in story specific clothes, all of them exclusive to this event. The story itself is delightful - I'm planning on playing it again just for fun, now that I know the way of it. The nearby shopping area is also delightful, with a selection of yukata, some lovely slippers, and even some watery wonders like this adorable outfit I picked up from Drop - more known for their male clothing, but in this case offering up a charming effect - a woman who fades out into mist from the waist down. I love it, especially in shots where you can see through to the hand in back! The cloud hat is also part of the outfit, strings of irregularly sized teardops from an amazing fluffy cloud. I felt like the shoes really sold that I'm solid, just invisible, and so I added these lovely sandals from Sakka's Studio. I love how realistic they are, from the heavy weight of the trim and the thong between the toes to the gentle pastel colors of the fabric - the exclusive for this event. The angle of the heel is particular is very nice - I liked how I could use it to make this improbable pose more probable.

My accessories are also from the Mizu shopping area, one of them - this amazing dewdrop ring - an exclusive that studio AKINI is releasing just here. There are a lot of other options available through a gacha on site, but this ring you can simply purchase and enjoy. In addition to the blue I'm showing here, the rose can be texture changed to a shiny red and a gleaming gold. Finally my lipstick, one of a flurry of translucent reds and pinks, is also an exclusive from violetta. The matte version is also available, as is an inexpensive but sweet set of blush. It really adds a soft touch to the rest of my look, a sweet cloud touching down for a few days for a wonderful story. I took my pictures as I went along, enjoying the various locations I was teleported between through the course of the adventure. I love the dreamy quality of my locations, and once again I urge you to enjoy the wonderful story of Mizu.
