If I’m remembering right from high school French class, the name of our featured outfit translates to “Lady Tickles”… hmm… sounds awefully naughty when you put it like that! But Mme. Chatouille, by Devious Beauty, the fashion arm of Devious Minds/Chanimations, really does tickle the fancy! It’s part of their burlesque line (recently added to with their release of “Miss Dhalia“). I’ve used many of their props and poses here in the blog, but this is the first clothing piece we’ve reviewed for you. Mme. Chatouille was released in December 25th, 2009, and is described by the creator as being “Burlesque Couture and Lingerie” all in one. I agree. Of their clothing line, this one has remained my personal favorite of all of their releases. It’s also the design that Sean Gorham was most drawn to, when we popped over to take a look.

What’s “Just Right”: The level of detail and options in Mme. Chatouille is positively luxurious. There are a variety of looks one can put together – pantyhose or stockings, covered or uncovered, with skirts or without, pasties, bows, you name it. The colors offered are vibrant and intense. This is the sort of outfit that Christina A *wished* she could have worn in her recent movie… I found myself really liking both the pantyhose and the stocking options.

What Could Use Improvement: The frilled collar gave us a bit of frustration, as it fell directly into/through the face in many of the poses we tried. If it had been modify, we could have saved some really gorgeous pictures, but alas. While it’s exquisite, the design also mandates a short or updo hairstyle – there’s no getting around that.

Other things to Note: Devious Beauty has a wide array of offerings on the Marketplace. They also have some of the most amazing poses and props you’ll see anywhere.

OMG! *runs around in circles squeeing*

The last few pieces I’ve shared with you have been blog-worthy but lacked a certain level of “oomph” when it came to the texture and detail department. Well, boys and girls, prepare to have your world rocked. While chatting with Eclectic Wingtips during work on the last post, we were joined by fellow SLU’er, Eku Zhong. She provided me with a couple of suggestions about places to check out – and one of them was SLink. Now, I’m familiar with SLink for their shoes, but – for reasons completely beyond me – I had never actually looked at their clothing.. and had NO idea they made this slinky, delicious catsuit. I teleported right over to their main store, and was then wracked with indecision. The Vixen Catsuit is offered in a multitude of colors, and it was physically agonizing to pick just one. As a blogger on a budget, I simply couldn’t afford the fat pack (just shy of 3kL), but oh lordy, did I want it! I whined about this on group chat and Eku showed up to help me pick… and then very generously handed me the Lindens to get an extra color! (Thank you, Eku!)

At her prompting, I purchased the Ruby version. Right there in the store, I slithered into this tight little number with it’s plunging neckline down to there, and instantly felt like a sexy bombshell. She enthusiastically suggested I get the Black as well, and I have to say it didn’t take much prodding. I started getting some fun ideas about environment backgrounds for the shoot which I was blathering on about on group chat and Nimue Jewell mentioned that she’d been thinking about a sexy android look using the catsuit in Silver. Since this meshed perfectly with one of my ideas, I asked if she’d be willing to join me! The results are pretty spectacular if I do say so myself.

What’s “Just Right”: Without exception, I’ve never seen a better job of highlighting and shadow work on latex than this outfit. Period. End of sentence. Any time I’ve said it before.. well.. this blows it away. Every feminine curve – concave or convex – is lovingly detailed. Eku said she’d heard that the designer did the highlight and shadow work on a 3D model in a rendering program, and that sure makes a lot of sense. It’s the interplay of shadow and light that creates dimension — whether in an oil painting or Second Life clothing — and the work on the Vixen Catsuit is simply superb. The plunging neckline is tres sexy and the arching seaming line over the buttocks is feminine and enticing. That boots to match are included as part of the outfit just adds to the value.

What Could Use Improvement: There’s only two ways this could be improved: 1) The addition of a prim zipper pull – maybe with a dangle/ornament in the shape of a tiny lock to match the ones on the boots? and 2) If the lines of the garment were used to separate the outfit into its component parts (jacket/shirt/pants), instead of the layer shape. That would provide color mix and match (say, crimson legs and gloves, a black ‘leotard’.. or the white and silver intermingled) options that don’t currently exist. If it did… any latex-loving girl would have a fashiongasm.

Other things to note: As I said before, I know of SLink because of their gorgeous prim bare feet (which I wear on a regular basis on the beach at home in Carbondale) and their shoes – but they make a wide array of clothes, too! Sadly, only a few of their offerings are available on The Marketplace.

Special Thank Yous: Great big thank yous go to Eku Zhong, Nimue Jewell, and Naeve Rossini, who’s generosity and kindness made this a wonderfully fun shooting experience! Thank you, ladies!
