Skadi, the huntress of Nordic mythology, is a most appropriate guise for the depth of winter. The lush dark gown, brightened by a scattered fall of snowflakes, and the collar adorned with arrows are the creations of Axi Kurmin of Pale Empress. This brand is without a doubt one of the best in Second Life at taking a theme and an inspiration and interpreting it in a unique and wearable way. A gown might not be the first thing you’d imagine for a huntress and skier like Skadi, yet surely every goddess needs a chance to be festive? In Skadi’s case, perhaps she’s celebrating that her husband Njord, whom she selected based on his beautiful feet, is off somewhere else…
The Skadi gown comes in two special Gothmas colours, black/red and black/blue (the latter is worn here) as well as a regular version which comes with a HUD for colour changes. The Gothmas specials are exclusives and will not be available after the event.
There’s also a matching collar for each gown.
The poses are from HopScotch’s Huntress set and I am wearing the lovely Dae braid from Calico. My skin is Imabee’s Florentine, which has a lovely flushed look, and the headpiece is from the Snowstars set by Tekeli-li.
Gothmas by Gaslight ends on January 3rd, so if you haven’t been there already, now’s the time. There’s two full sims of dark designs for all your winter holiday needs.
