Behaving like a princess is work. It’s not just about looking beautiful or wearing a crown. It’s more about how you are inside.

This is my traditional outfit I wore for MVW 2014 Grand Finale. I know I have to type a lot but this is the exact words I’ve used during the show.

It is inspired from traditional Chinese dress called Qipao or well known in Malaysia as Cheong Sam. Chinese is a second larger ethnic in Malaysia. The main colour is inspired from one of the colour in Malaysia flag; yellow. Yellow represent royal colour of the Malay ruler. The pattern on the collar is batik style with hibiscus flower; Malaysia National Flower. Being decendent from mix ethnic, I want to show the assimilation within Malaysia multi-cultural is harmonious. Amutey has done a fabulous job on translating the inspiration into reality for this outfit. The jewelery is inspired from Malay traditional jewelry.

The mix of using purple as part of my dress is based on my RL traditional outfit; yellow background with dark purple flower. During the creation process, Amutey asked me the colour. I know I want yellow from the start and I know Bliss always have my right kind of yellow. I know it kinda unusual for people to wear yellow in SL let alone in MVW. I consider that is my risk that I really want to take beside I love that colour. When she asked me the colour for the pattern, I said few other colour then I canceled it myself because I remember about this favorite outfit of mine. I’m so happy with the result :)

Listening to the bell song

131105_009s

The Bell Song is one of songs taken from opera called Lakme, which also  part of my 2nd styling challenge for MVW 2014; The Opera challenge. When you said opera, my mind always think those singing performance which mostly sang in tenor, deep baritone or soprano voice such as Luciano Pavarotti or Andrea Bocelli. Yup my opera knowledge is really limited *blush*

I did my research on the story just to get the outfit and character right. Since it based on Indian culture, I asked few Indian decendent or at least know about Indian culture in my plurk. I don’t want to insult any culture without knowing it especially Lakme (the main character) is a daughter of a Brahmin priest. I did learn in world history during high school that Brahmin is the highest caste in India. In my humble opinion, those highest caste is sort like a royal. Anubis was kind enough to let me know which colour to avoid and preferable. He said there is no official dress code on saris or salwar. Since this opera was set during British India era in mid 19th century, I did research on Indian old culture.

My inspiration for this outfit/style comes from Act 2 in Lakme Opera where Lakme fainted after her father stabbed Gerald, and also Indian traditional culture during British invasion era. Those days, women were not allowed to have their hair loose freely when walked in public. In this scene I imagined, Lakme’s long hair was braided and pull up in a bun. As she fainted, her braided hair got loose from the bun.
