Fairytale Memories

When I was a little girl, some of my favourite stories were read to me by my parents from my most treasured book of fairy tales.  Two of my favourite stories were Cinderella and Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

0. Fairytale 1

As much as I liked the story of Cinderella, one of my favourite parts is when she attends the ball.  In my storybook there was a double page in the centre of the book which showed the inside of the vast ballroom where Cinderella is dancing with Prince Charming and around them were hundreds of women in the most beautiful coloured ball gowns I had ever seen and men in their smart suits.  It seems that from a very early age, I was drawn to fashion.

I found this dress in SL called Cinderella and was inspired to recreate this beautiful look from what is now a memory from my fairytale book.  I have also always loved the story of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and my favourite part from that story is when the huntsman lets Snow White go free and she stumbles upon the little cottage in the forest where the seven dwarfs live.

She cooks and cleans for them whilst they are working and everyone is happy until Snow White takes a bite from the poisonous apple.  After being inspired by the Cinderella dress, I had a look on the SL marketplace for Snow White.  There are a lot of fabulous costumes, however, I am quite traditional so I decided the dress above was the best choice to recreate the look from my storybook.

You can see details of my styling for these two looks on my Flickr page at http://www.flickr.com/photos/47089508@N08/

There are so many other stories I enjoyed reading as a child, however, if I included them into this article, it would be quite long.  I will probably write an additional blog in the future highlighting some more of my favourite stories.  Until next time………
