M!RAMODE Cleopatra

Where do I get my inspiration ?
It depends on my mood and the things I come across :-)
Like for instance, the July groupgift skin from CMC ...
I rarely hunt for free things but for a skin I keep an eye on it :-)
So this time it was a bronze and luxery golden skin with glowing golden lips, suited for an exotic Queen to wear.
Queen you said ? where do we find real life exotic Queens these days ?
Who is the Queen of the Queens ? For me that's Cleopatra !
She did everything to have power, even married her brothers and had the most powerful men at her side and in her bed :-) But the story ended in suicide...but she still lives among us and is an inspiration for many artists !

Anyway, I just had the right textures stored in my map... and started... it took me awhile to complete the picture with a crown and juwels :-)

By the way, I had great fun making all of this, also the Advertisement pictures for the Allure Magazine and later on for the vendor (will be out soon).Who can say they were Cleopatra for a few days ! lol


  1. The settings (I think they call it dressing the set in theatre) and your costume perfectly complement Caren's exotic gift skin. A nice compliment, and all the better because the fun you had making it shows!

  2. Thank you Mermet for your visit, yes indeed I think it all fits well together... my old life and love for theater shows :-)
