Icy Diamonds

19 01 2010

While trying to come up with ideas for the January MDR Party, ice and snow where the only things that kept coming to mind.  So, not wanting to actually celebrate snow,  I decided to do a little play on words and have an “ice” party.  I’m not talking about that frozen water you find outside during the winter months.  No, I’m talking about diamonds.  After all, they are a girls’ best friend, right?  And when I think of diamonds in SL, the first name that comes to mind is Alienbear Gupte.

I’ve long been a fan of Alienbear’s fantastical designs and gorgeous sparkling diamonds. Her jewelry is ornate and beautiful, with rich jewel tones and crystal clear diamonds.  Alienbear Gupte makes high quality pieces, each as unique and creative as anything on the grid.  And while her jewelry can sometimes be a bit high prim, it’s totally worth it.  I always feel like a princess when I’m wearing something from Alienbear, and one of her newest sets, Azucena, definitely keeps that tradition going.

I love the versatility of this set.  It comes with two different types of earrings, two different tiara designs (Princess or Queen), and a necklace that comes with two different parts.  You can wear a very simple design by wearing the smaller earrings and just the main necklace, or you can go for a bit more glamour and wear the entire set.  Azucena also comes with a cuff bracelet for each arm.

I chose to pair it with a dress from Phoenix Rising, Natasja’s Seduction in Ice.  This is a stunning dress and it worked perfectly with the more ornate version of Azucena.  You could wear the simple version of Azucena with a formal dress or even a cute little cocktail dress. 

That’s one of the best aspects of a set from Alienbear; most of her stuff can be worn with a variety of different looks; from casual to formal.  Azucena also comes in different metal colors, so if you prefer gold to silver you’re definitely in luck.

Alienbear’s Designs is the sponsor for MDR’s Ice Party this month.  This is a special event since we’ve just moved into our new home on the Glitter sim, just across the way from MichaMi and Stereo Vogue (where I shot these snow princess photos).  For the party, Alienbear was generous enough to create a new set: Almas. 

This gold and diamond set is stunning, just as you’d expect an Alienbear design to be.  It comes with two necklaces and a gorgeous pair of matching earrings.  You can wear the necklaces together, or just one, depending on the look you’re going for.

Almas has not been sold in the store yet, but will up for sale soon.  If you come to the MDR party on Wednesday, however, you can get it for FREE.  Alienbear’s Designs has also donated a 500L gift card, which we will raffle off sometime during the event.  DJ Arri Lane will be spinning tunes from 6:30 p.m. until 8:30 p.m. and we’ll set the bar out if anyone wants to grab some cocktails while they’re dancing.  So come hang out with us on Wednesday, take a tour of our new location, dance to some great tunes, and grab that free gift from Alienbear.  Hope to see you there!
