Mariposa’s Mermaid Gowns

Mermaids are one of those hot trends right now. Whether you love them or hate them it’s hard to deny their shiny scales are mesmerizing. Mariposa has captured that feel in their dresses available at Fashion Dazzle now.

The Gowns

There are eight dresses available at the Mariposa booth this month. Half are “Hibbi” which have a design in white. The other half are “Hindi” which have the design in black. Both are beautiful in their own way.

The Hibbi style comes in purple, lapiz blue, frost, and cream (shown here). The last two are exclusive to Fashion Dazzle. Hindi comes in cream, berry red, lapiz blue, and dogwood pink.

I’ve saved the best part for last. Each dress reacts to the light, which is why they come with a body and face lights. The light reacts with the iridescent silk to make a gorgeous mermaid shimmer. It’s hard to see in still pics, so make sure to check out the video at the end of this section.

Each dress is for sale for L$419 and sized for Slink, Belleza, and 5 standard mesh sizes. In this post I’m wearing standard size Small on a Maitreya body. Demos are available, so test them out to see how cool they are for yourself!

You’ll also find the Lana jewelry set in five different colors at the booth. This set includes two bracelets, a necklace, earrings, and a brooch. Like most jewelry you will have to take a little time adjusting it to ensure a perfect fit. It’s not difficult to do and doesn’t take too long at all.

The set is available in citrine, carnelian, emerald, amethyst, and topaz (shown here). Each color can be purchased for L$250.
