I started BellaDonna Fashions at Inworldz about a year ago. I noticed there were not many Gothic Romance fashion options out there and I love those types of clothes. So I started making things I like to wear and opened the store.
I must have struck a cord, as others have found my store and the feedback has been great! I also branched out into making jewelry and boots to go with each outfit. The picture above shows my Midnight Gothic Tears Armbands.
I added a Necklace and earring set to the line. The picture above is one example.
And finally boots. I have ankle boots also.
As the time went by, I expanded with Fantasy and Vampress outfits, and coming soon, Urban Goth.
This has been a really interesting and gratifying creative outlet for me. I have definitely increased my Photoshop skills! It does take a lot of time to create each outfit. I equip all prim items with a sizing script that can be deleted once you have it fitting the way you want. And I create each outfit in 3 or more color choices generally. Then I move on to the jewelry, boots and any accessories. THEN, I need to take pictures of everything… for each color and Photoshop the vendor picture and ads I use. After that, I can box them up after making sure all the permissions are set correctly. And add to my vendors! Whew.
So I hope my customers can understand why it takes me a while to put out a new outfit!
