Myths and Legends 3rd Runway Challenge

Yesterday MVW had it's third runway challenge themed after Myths and Legends.  Myths and legends are abundant in my country.  It was hard just to pick one that I liked.  I choose Arke daughter of Thaumas and soral twin of Iris.  Iris is the personification of the rainbow and messenger of the Olympian gods.

During the Titanomachy Arke left the Olympian gods betraying them and joined the Titans as their messenger goddess.  This made the two sisters enemy messenger goddesses.  Arke is affiliated with the faded second rainbow and was known for her iridescent wings.  When the titans lost the war Zeus tore her wings off and cast her into Tartarus with the other vanquished Titians.  Her wings were later passed to Achilles who wore them on his feet.

This myth stood out to me because of Arke's iridescent wings and how she travels on the second rainbow.  My grandfather died when I was younger and at his funeral it poured rain.  When headed home the sun came out and a rainbow appeared.  I felt it was his way of telling me it was ok. Rainbows have always been something special to me.

2nd MVW Runway Challenge

Our second MVW runway challenge was the them of "My Favorite Movie Of All Time".  I use to love Mary Poppins growing up.  She was always so bright, cheery and magical.  Who else can pull a lamp from a purse? You could tell that she loved what she did.  Recently I watched Saving Mr. Banks.  This was the story about how Mr. Disney courted P.L. Travers for twenty years to get the author to allow them to make a Mary Poppins a movie.  P.L. Travers did not have a happy life and she was very alone.  It was a very touching movie and made you feel for Ms. Travers.  She did not like the movie Mary Poppins and refused to work with Disney again.  Saving Mr. Banks showed me that even someone who refuses to be happy can make such wonderful characters.  I found Saving Mr. Banks to be a very touching movie.  Originally I came up a very classic look for my Mary Poppins theme and I wanted to fly down that run way.  Then I came up with a more modern and fashionable look.

Folklore Fall/Winter High Couture

Our first run way challenge was a Folklore Fall/Winter High Couture.  The inspiration they showed us left me with three different options.  Each option had its own set of challenges.  After going through many demos and thank goodness for demos I came up with a basic look.  I felt the look was to plain.  I needed to add that and then some to the outfit.  I was not sure how to go about this and after a lot of thinking I added the chain belt (necklace) and hat.  I absolutely adore the designs on the coins.  During the final presentation is the only time we as contestants got to see what all the contestants were wearing.  You can see it all hereMVW Folklore.  So there I was standing in a sea of black and red haute couture in my little outfit.  I loved the challenge and am sure the rest of the challenges will be just as difficult.   



What I am wearing:

Skirt: AlaFolie - Marobe
Top: Pixicat - Fur Vest Brown
Hair: Shi Hair - Messy Fringe Chocolate
Hat: Zenith - Leather trapper hat Chocolate
Waist Chains (necklace): League - Coin Collector Necklace Old Gold
