Dolls, old charm and new reality

A salt doll journeyed on earth 
thousands of miles, till she came 
finally to the sea. 
She was fascinated by the strange mass 
moving, completely different from anything 
she had seen in her life. 
"Who are you?" Asked the salt doll
to the sea. 
The sea, smiling, replied: 
"Come and see." 
Thus the doll advanced in the sea. 
And more she was walking in the sea 
more she melted, 
until very little remained of her. 
Before that last piece 
dissolved, the doll exclaimed in wonder 
"Now I know who I am."
[Bambola di sale - Jho]

Fantasy worlds, childhood's perfumes, the slight noise of a complicit laughter. The world of dolls has always fascinated generations thanks to the strange fragility and glass eyes that seem to know everything and anything. Rich clothes or naked porcelain, each one is unique and valuable just for its little girl, for those who have always loved these toys because they have developed the greatest fantasies of any child, the little princess and her little people with glass eyes always open, always silent and sweet, then these faithful companions are being left behind and abandoned to an eternal slumber until it returns to childhood passion that makes us sigh.
You wondering what they got to do the dolls of our childhood in a virtual reality. The connection is very strong because in reality we are the puppeteers of that avatar, that doll, creating stories, relationships, friendships with other puppeteers.
The imaginary world of children emerges when we were in a parallel reality that connects people from miles and miles away, intangible but nonetheless real, and make us breathe (albeit in different ways) the air of a time. And for those more melancholy can revive and show to all your doll, there's only a place to find those little pieces of porcelain and colored glass eyes, it's exciting and outstanding the idea that little body can contain: an avatar becomes a doll, a fiction that wearing the clothes of fiction.
Of course many don't share the idea of creating and shaping their own avatar as an allegory, but we have to recognize the deep bond that develops in these three elements: reality - virtual - mask.
Surely COCO Design has captured the elegance and mystery of old dolls proposing a second small world inside SecondLife, conquering not only its feminine customers but also the masculine with a style sometimes sweet and childish or more bleak and disturbing, because you know, not all the dolls can have the same sweet and reassuring smile or a dress of lace, but they can hide something very ambiguous.
And here is the winning horse of COCO Design, it has combined these two points in a single creation, pulling the strings of these puppets has become a pleasure even virtual, which contains not only style and love for the vintage but also something deeper that binds and emphasizes the link between those who are on the other side of the keyboard and your virtual alter ego.

Like a dance in my dreams

Good morning and happy new year to all of our followers! I hope you had fun in last days and I wish you have a great year!
Today I want to talk about art and fashion, as you always know SL is the world where art and fashion meet each other and become one only thing.
There are a lot sl-designers who create authentic works of art, result of their eccentric and imaginative mind or their innate talent. Since I registered on Second Life I have always tried fancy clothes and accessories but not strange, rather eccentric and original, now you think "you want something like Lady Gaga or similar", no, it's not correct (but I love Lady Gaga <3) I always was looking for unique and wonderful creations. We must be realistic, make clothes or accessories or anything complex or strange about Second Life is not so simple, you must have a great knowledge of the resources available and a large dose of patience as well as fantasy.
For example Boudoir creates always gorgeous outfit, no one can reproduce its style and if it tries does not get the same result. Each of its dress is a work of art that seems to be realized fully in the SL's 3D world. Browsing around I found out that the owner of Boudoir doeth its work on paper and, in my opinion, with great success.
Mainly you can find complex burlesque corsets or eccentric formal dresses or elegant lounges adorned with beautiful roses and how to forget unlikely hair cuts as fantastic and similar to those of intriguing tales?
Owning something Boudoir is a must, not because of the factor "high price - high quality" but for the genius that is in each one of them.
There is also a small area devoted to sales and group gifts, the group membership is free and I recommend you visit the land and any setting!

Hair: Alice Project - Advent Calendar 2013.12.9 (available in store for 50L$)
Skin: Glam Affair - Mokatana - Petal (Group Gift - 30L$ to join)
Eyes: BySnow - Doll eyes (1L$)
Shape: *Mafalda's* - Inazumi's Shape (10L$ - on Marketplace)
Outfit: Boudoir - Snowflake Fairy Ballet Dress (Group Gift - free to join)
Shoes: Isis - SPH #51 (hunt gift - free on store)
