Lord Neptune steps out in STYLE!  Tired of swimming around in a blue-gill skin the God of the Sea takes it to terra firma with Nyte Vargas’ rendition of evening wear fit for Greek Gods.

Nyte is one of the many designers participating in the Fashion Designer’s Challenge (brainchild of Samsara Nishi) inside the virtual universe of Second Life.   How apropos to have this mythological man as a model when one considers the amount of water in Second Life that separates the many islands and surrounds the mainland.

Nyte created the underlying fabric texture for this evening look that easily captures the ripple of waves.  The EXTRAordinary tails of the evening jacket immediately and quite graphically pull to mind the image of tentacles; the dress shirt with it’s many French seam detailing definitely accents the overall colorscheme.

Neither has the gutsy designer left detail to the devil.  Nyte has included with her challenge submission a top hat, cane, and dress shoes.  Oh, and let’s not forget the seaweed boa (not shown here) which absolutely turns Neptune into one super MacDaddy of the Deep.
