Designers United Comes to Starlustland!

The fourth Designers United event is being held on Floyd and runs until September 15th (after which, good old Floyd will be getting a bit of a makeover). Narcissus is the theme for this event, which features creations by some of the finest designers in SL (including many Starlustians). Some have interpreted the Greek myth of Narcissus and Echo (short version: boy falls in love with his own reflection in a pool of water and wastes away staring at himself, girl pines for vain boy until only her voice remains). Others have explored the symbolism of the daffodil narcissus flower itself or simply creatively vamped using the bloom. Floyd has been transformed into a wonderland of grass, white flowers, dirt paths, mirror-like water... and lots and lots of things to buy.

There is a little bit of everything available at this event -- skins, hair, clothing, poses, accessories and home stuff. No surprise, the vast majority is for the ladies, but creative guys will find things they can work with. Everything looks fantastic -- the theme revolves around beauty, after all, and that has really come through with this DU round. Here are a few of my favorite finds.
