Second Life Creator Spotlight: Three More Historical and Fantasy Outfits from Silvan Moon Designs

Have you joined the RyanSchultz.com Steals, Deals & Freebies group yet? I will be posting EVEN MORE news and tips on finding fabulous freebies and bargains in Second Life than I now post here on the blog! More information on this brand new SL group here.


Bee Dumpling and Solas NaGealai, the owners of Silvan Moon Designs, do such amazing work that I wanted to once again showcase three of their most recent releases. Silvan Moon Designs (SLURL to their in-world storeSL MarketplaceFlickr) specializes in historical, fantasy, and role play outfits, consistently beautiful and detailed virtual dresses, gowns, and outfits that I have enjoyed over many years!

Afternoon Tea Gown

The Afternoon Tea gown set comes in the Maitreya Lara size only (although you should be able to make it work with other brands of mesh bodies by using the alpha sections on their HUDs). This delightful period gown comes in six different colours:

  • Blooming (light blue and white)
  • Brew (monochrome gray and white)
  • Jam (a deep violet and white)
  • Matcha (a lovely green and white)
  • Merlot (deep red and white)
  • Oolong (a darker blue and white)

Here Vanity Fair is wearing the Oolong version of this wonderful, evocative Victorian gown:

The detail on this gown is wonderful, both front and back!

The Afternoon Tea gown is available at the Silvan Moon Designs main store (exact SLURL), for L$400 per colour.

Daughter of Olaf Tunic Set

This wonderful outfit is available for sale at the Silvan Moon Designs booth at the Viking Saga round of the Enchantment shopping event in Second Life (here’s the exact SLURL of the booth at the event).

The Daughter of Olaf tunic set consists of four separate pieces which you can mix and match to a certain extent (wearing the shirt just with the girdle, with the maille, or both; wearing the outfit with or without leggings). The four pieces are:

  • a long shirt that could double as a dress;
  • a maille armour layer to wear overtop of the dress;
  • a girdle with an elven tree design to wear overtop the maille;
  • system layer/Bakes on Mesh leggings (note: no Omega or Maitreya appliers).

The Daughter of Olaf outfit comes in eight different colours: aqua, black, blue, brown, olive, purple, rose, and white:

The outfit shown below is the brown one (the black staff, black leggings and elven boots are not part of the original outfit):

The Daughter of Olaf outfit costs only L$400 per colour, or you can buy the entire fatpack of eight colours for L$3,000.

The Virgin Queen Gown

Now this is a gown fit for a queen (virgin or otherwise 😉 )! The outfit consists of three parts: the main gown, separate ruffled Elizabethan collar and puffed sleeves, and the final touch of separate gold-and-pearl attachments to accentuate the breast and waist. The Virgin Queen gown set comes in six jewel-tone colours: amethyst, emerald, onyx, ruby, sapphire, and turquoise. Shown below is ruby:

The Virgin Queen gown is available at the We Love Roleplay shopping event (here’s the exact SLURL of the Sylvan Moon Designs booth), where you can buy this sumptuous, bejeweled gown for only L$360 for each colour. And if you simply cannot make up your mind, why not splurge and buy the entire fatpack of six colours for only L$2,100?

Such a gown demands an appropriate animation override, and I can highly recommend the Southern Belle and Woman in Ballgown AO from Tuty Bento and Mocap Animations store (available in-world at this SLURL or via the SL Marketplace for L$650). It’s the perfect AO for full-skirted ballgowns such as this Elizabethan masterpiece!

Or, if you prefer, you can purchase a Shoulder Overrider HUD which works with your existing AO, just lifting your arms higher so they don’t poke through the voluminous skirt! The Shoulder Overrider is available on the SL Marketplace for only L$299 from Ethik Nacon and it was originally intended for fatter avatars so their hands don’t disappear into their bodies, but it also works great for gowns with wide, full skirts or oriental gowns with long, full sleeves that you want to show off!

Why not pick up a Silvan Moon Designs garment for your next adventure in Second Life?
