Kusama inspired culture shock

No, I don't know if the dress is inspired by Kusama or it's just a happy coincidence..but I love Yayoi Kusama's work, (check her out! ), and when I saw this dress, it just made me think of her.
It's all about polkadots, it comes with a veil/mask a ring, and in three other colors. The floating spheres around it can be detached, but it's so appealing complete. It turns it into more than a cute dress. Though it's stilla  cute dress on its own, It's slightly sheer, yet all your 'private' parts are covered neatly.

Culture Shock 

I'm back from a small..not so small hiatus in which real life decided to take some time form sl. And I'm really excited, why?..because I'm blogging again, and just for a soon to be..almost starting fashion event that also helps people out of sl.

As you may know, or not, CUlture Shock is about to begin. What is this? It's a sim fair event by CHIC Management and sponsored by MODAVIA Productions. You might have been at it last year.
The Proceeds from the event go to Medicins Sans Frontiers (Doctors Without Borders/Médicos Sin Fronteras)

For more info about the stores, landmark, etc, please go to:


It runs from May 4th to May 26th, so you have plenty of time to stop by

I'll be making a couple more of posts in the next days. But for today this is what I came up with. While I was looking trough the stores I realized that I was picturing the name of the event thinking of the exotic. Ethnical patterns, wooden beads, ceramics, asian designs, fabrics. Yet everything else can fit umder the wing of culture, even those things that are usual. But then, where's the shock on that?. This is what I could come up with ^^

The Shape is from Savoir Faire, it comes with a style card, it looks really cute with the skin it has on the vendor, but I fell in love of the face when wearing this skin (from my ugly dorothy). The hair worn on the pictures (from Tameless) comes with a lovely hairbase of its own. It actually looks as it you combed the hair with gel into a mohawk. But I was tempted to see how it'd look with the head shaven instead, and I really liked the result.
