Colour! Colour! Colour! Week 3: Dark Moderate Blue

The outfit this week is a blast from the past - a past I get to play with all too rarely these days - my deep and abiding love for the Lolita Fashion style. There are a few stores around which do Lolita, but the days of extensive stores doing full on Lolita - very demure lines, knee to calf length skirts, lots of frills - has seemingly passed under the weight of trying to rig large, round mesh skirts. In the deep dive for appropriate blues I went through my blues folder, thinning out the herd and clearing away a lot of the detritus, but I couldn't resist showing off this dress from Arsenic Lace, with it's layered ruffles on the side and pleasing textures all over. Someday, perhaps, we will see this style of dress rendered in rigged mesh but for now I'll enjoy it through it's flexi heritage and marvel at the skill of creators to take simple shapes and make beauty out of them.

Next Week's Color is R:55 G:163 B:134 (aka #37a386)
