“I am the Ghost of Christmas Present. Look upon me.”
~A Christmas Carol, by Charles Dickens
Now look upon this incredible dress, Ghost of Christmas Present, which is this week’s group gift from The White Armory. Made of a dreamy, green velvet, it has hanging chains and a sheath for my sword (which I seem to have misplaced at the moment). It even has an optional front panel – which I’m not wearing here – with “urchins” on it, looking as if they are playing in the skirts. I love the holly leaves and berries on the bodice and crown.
The White Armory group is free to join, but not in the usual way. You must send a notecard in-world to Ida Donardson, and she will add you to the group. You will not regret the extra effort, I promise, as the weekly group gifts are stunning. New gifts are put out every Sunday, so hurry over today if you would like this one!
My skin is the exquisite Gaia Vintage Love from [PXL], which can be yours for a mere 10L when you find the red and black With Love Hunt box. The medallion I’m wearing is the elegant Renaissance Hunt gift from !Elemental Jewelry (there is also a men’s version in the box). You can see the holly on the bodice here, and how it cleverly hides my… you know… but still shows a peek-a-boo hint of skin. I am a ghost, after all, so I suppose I should display some modesty if I want to scare some sense into old Ebenezer Scrooge.
Also available to group members this month is this special Christmas dress, Rose Chalice. This one is cut aaaaaalll the way up the side, and shows a lot of sexy leg! I found these Dee Dee shoes from :: Masha :: on the Marketplace for only 10L. There’s a cute, silver bow on the side and a super-high, skinny stiletto heel which you can’t see from this view. I should definitely get Scrooge’s attention in this dress!
My jewels arrived just in time as an advent gift from Virtual Impressions. The Theresa set is all yummy red pearls and rubies, and a perfect match for this dress. Virtual Impressions’ advent gifts are available to group members only, but the group is free to join.
Oh look, there’s my sword! I’m off now to share the spirit of Christmas with Ebenezer Scrooge, and maybe a few others along the way. In the immortal words of Tiny Tim: “God bless us every one.”
