Let me start by saying, I love love love the show "Once Upon a Time". That said we all have our favorite storybook character right? Mine was always Snow White, no not the Disney version with the singing birds and cute but frumpy Dwarfs. No I'm talking about the Brothers Grimm version. I was never big on Disney Princess's growing up, and have always been a reader. Go figure Snow White would be my favorite right? Beautiful Princess, Poison Apple, Seven little men, and eventually the horrible death of the Evil Queen. What is not to love? Flash forward to my adult years and fade to the opening scene of the pilot episode of Once Upon a Time... The handsome Prince Charming riding his noble steed into the forest... Snow falling... Snow White in a glass box surrounded by... you guessed it Dwarfs. I was instantly hooked. Now for the record those of you who don't watch the show... It challenges everything you ever thought you knew about Fairy Tales. Okay.. I will stop yammering on and get to my actual post.
I breed Meeroos. Ya know those furry little creatures that make silly little noises and are so stinking cute you wanna snuggle them or smother them while they sleep to reduce the cuteness factor? Insert evil grin here. I love them really, I have been breeding them since day one however always seeming to be a step behind the big breeders. Lack of funds will do that to you. Anyway... I decided instead of Snow White having seven dwarfs I decided why not Meeroos? Go ahead laugh at me, but it was brilliant. And because I had nothing to wear for my "Once Upon a Time" inspired post I did what every good blogger does. I decided to go shopping, however I couldn't find what I wanted. So I dug into my inventory. And I found the perfect dress, hair and skin!
I chose an -AZUL- dress I have had in my inventory since summer. It's called Suzana. I also have this dress in the Limited Edition All black color that she made. I saw it when shopping one day and needed it. I cant help but buy a pretty dress when I see one. I have more formal gowns then I will ever wear I am sure, and yet I buy more all the time. Now if I can convince my husband to take me dancing I would be all set. Anyway, Mami Jewell is the creative mind behind -AZUL-. I can honestly say I have never bought a dress from her that I have not loved immensely.
To pair with my amazing dress I added some hair from (Posh) called Wednesday. Which is my favorite style that Jeanie Valois makes. She has so many amazing hairstyles it's hard to not love them all. I also added Maitreya's Hana shoes, which are not shown but are amazing, we all know how I love Maitreya's shoes. I decided I needed a pale skin with bright red lips to be Snow White, I happen to find this Glam Affair skin from a past TDR (The Dressing Room) event. I have never seen a Glam Affair skin I didn't love. This one is called Gio Natural. I can't even remember how long I have had it. But I can say without a doubt I love it. I am like Joie, every single time I see a Glam Affair skin at an event I buy it. I never know when I will need it right?
When my outfit was complete and I had picked out my Seven Meeroos I needed to figure out where to take the pics. So, I enlisted the help of fellow photographer and creative genius my amazing friend Reagan to help me. And My lord was I excited when we were finished putting together Snow White's Forest! I didn't wanna take it down when I was done taking my pics. Even the Seven Meeroos felt at home. I think I might hire Reagan as my official sidekick for my shoots. I might need an extra hand in the future.
Let's meet the Seven Meeroos shall we? Cheeto, Peppermint,Waffle, Monster, Dracula, King Tut, and last but not least (however certainly the tiniest) Tiny. They are quite the interesting little bunch of fellows. Honestly I have about 40 more where they came from, but these little guys are the special few I chose. My sim is full of Meeroos. I love the little furry buggers.
I absolutely loved taking these pictures and pretending to be a princess even if just for a few hours. I am so thankful to all of you who continue to read our blog. You make me want to blog every day, if only my RL would allow for that. Stay tuned for more exciting posts from me. I have a whole list of ideas!
