The February round of Enchantment is currently underway and this rounds theme is Cinderella. The event runs from February 11th to February 28th (Extended to March 4th) and promises to showcase some utterly amazing items from the most creative designers on the grid. The modern day Cinderella fairy tale is much lighter than Aschenputtel, the tale by Grimm. The most popular version of Cinderella was written in French by Charles Perrault in 1697, under the name Cendrillon. The popularity of his tale was due to his additions to the story, including the pumpkin, the fairy-godmother and the introduction of “glass” slippers. Adaptations Disney included in their rewrite.
The Grimm version is much more intense than that of Perrault and Disney, in that Cinderella’s father did not die and the step sisters cut off their own toes to fit in the golden slipper. In addition, there is no fairy godmother, but rather help comes from a wishing tree that she planted on her mother’s grave. In the end, during Aschenputtel’s wedding, as she walks down the aisle with her stepsisters as her bridesmaids, (they had hoped to worm their way into her favor), the doves fly down and strike the two stepsisters’ eyes, one in the left and the other in the right. When the wedding comes to an end, and Aschenputtel and her prince march out of the church, the doves fly again, striking the remaining eyes of the two evil sisters blind, a punishment they had to endure for the rest of their lives.
Stunning and beautiful, from Mimikri comes the Fay Off the Shoulder Dress. The dress is featured in Maitreya, SLINK Hourglass & Physique and standard mesh sizing. Available in three spring colours, I absolutely love this cute little baby doll dress.
