Iris Ophelia's ongoing review of gaming and virtual world style
- Brand name: League
- [SL Marketplace]
- Estimated average item price: L$200
- Brand owner: Nena Janus
Designs from League are often either flirty and feminine, bold and sexy, or a combination of the two. I picked a sultry, sparkling minidress from League as a top choice for New Year's Eve 2011, but some of my favorite releases from League are Nena's girlier lace-trimmed or pastel-toned items. The vast majority of Nena's shop is filled with clothing, but she's also seen tremendous success with her skin line. Skins from League are realistic and very polished, which understandably makes them a favorite of even highly-descriminating fashionistas.
Beyond that, League also offers unique jewelry and accessories. I'm wearing a set of embroidered earmuffs from League in the picture above, which are currently at The Arcade. I love the stitching on these, but the subtle shaping and texturing on the ribbon looks so realistic that even this tiny detail is a testament to Nena's skills as a designer. You can play League's gacha machine at The Arcade for a chance at these earmuffs as well as others, along with matching mittens, for L$50 per play until December 31st. Don't miss your chance!
