We <3 Role-Play, or WHRP, opened a few days late this month (normally opens on the fourth of every month). Every round just gets better and better. They opened up a bigger sky-box for the event, and that means MORE STUFF! I was really excited about a Greek Goddess themed dresses released by Les Encantades. I haven't heard of this particular designer before, and I am glad I do know now. The dresses are gorgeous--there are four different color themes all named and sort of styled like the leading Goddesses in Greek Mythology, Hera (wife of Zeus), Persephone (wife of Hades), Amphitrite (wife of Posideon), and then this lesser known nymph Flora (I couldn't really find much on her except she was a spring-time flower nymph. I don't really know why the creator choose Flora along with the other wife of the three main Gods of Greek Mythology, but I can see why she named the dress Flora due to the gown colored like a flower and with "flora" details).
The Gowns are 100L a piece, and they are all gorgeous. I ended up buying Hera and Amphitrite. I love the story of Persephone and Hades (weird I know), and Persephone's dress is lots of black and red does have an Underworld feel to it. Persephone was not only the Queen of the Underwold, but she was a Spring/Vegetation Goddess (maybe she should of named the dress Flora after Kore, Persephone's name before she was kidnapped and forced to marry Hades. Here is a link to the wiki page with information about Hades abduction of Kore and her transition to Persephone...Still love the whole story, maybe I am weird). For 100L, well worth the price. Each dress comes with some sort of corresponding accessory which complements the dress beautifully. Well worth the Linden. There are other beautiful dresses, accessories, skins, and an interesting long braided hair by Calique. Check it out at their new sky-box sometime this month before they close to do a new round.
I am really into the Tres Blah dresses that are at Collabor88! Very Greek with a dash of modernization. A must have. Let me repeat that again...Must. Have. Everything is reasonably priced (88-188L). Junbug is there this month with a great dress. I picked up some new poses, and like I mentioned early, some of the items you can tell have that "something" which will make most people think Greek.

So this week's entry is more Greek based than anything... I kind of like it. Listed below are the SURLs to the events listed. Reminder these rounds just opened, so the regions/parcels might be full. Give it a minute, try to have some patience (even though I am horrible at it...it is a work in progress).
