Jahanara

Jahanara

Last week Maxi Gossamar dropped one of her new mesh jewelry sets on me and said that she created an indian themed set for one of the Miss Virtual World contestants this year. I didn’t get a chance to try it on till just last night and I instantly fell in love with it. I really feel like royalty wearing this set. It’s available in white, red and black pearl versions with a gold metal. It’s already up on marketplace as well.

The jewelry and dress from Gizza were pretty heavy so I wanted to keep the skin simple. The skin is actually Tuli! Yes, Tuli Asturias has returned and her mainstore is on the cupcakes sim. She is currently still setting up her store but it is open and she has 4 skins available there. I am wearing Helena in powder tone.

When I put this look together, it immediately reminded me of Jahanara, or maybe she was just on my mind because I was recently reading a book about her. I love reading up on historical south asian women and the mughal empire. Here’s a short youtube video that briefly describes Jahanara’s life.

A crop of the first image is also my iRez photo of the day today. I shared more about Jahanara in that post, so click over if you’re interested.

    This is a beautiful look. How do you do the hands. Is there a video or tutorial on how to use these wonderful accessories – hands and feet?

    Thank you again.

  3. Lovely post! The jewelry is amazing!

    Indu is a really great author. Historical fiction is a favorite genre of mine. The book you referred to sucked me in and I couldn’t stop reading until I was finished with it. If you haven’t done so already, I highly recommend reading her other books that are tied in with that one also. The Feast of Roses and the Twentieth Wife are equally good. :)

  4. Augusta, the hands are mesh and available at SLink.

    India, oh yes I’m looking to read the whole trilogy, I really enjoyed it. Thanks for the recommendation!
