Actually, Morgana Nagorski has an obsession. With Gustav Klimt, Judith and Second Life.
I will be totally honest: I know nothing about Second Life. Except for that one incident in which a Japanese woman killed her husband’s online avatar. I understand it is an online virtual world in which Residents interact with each other through avatars. If I ever gave Second Life a chance, I suspect it would become an obsession for me.
Nagorski has used Second Life to her advantage to become an artist. Don’t ask me how that works, but it does. One of her areas of interest is Klimt – and she has designed several gowns based on his art and displayed them in various visually-pleasing works that can be seen on Flickr.
This particular Klimt inspired dress is “Lady Thera’s Judith – Gustav Klimt” – following Klimt’s Judith I. A neckline open to the waist, a Byzantine pattern to the fabric shot with gold, an asymmetrical ballerina skirt (my favorite part). I think Judith would have been proud to wear this. I would be proud to wear this.
But I might need some Second Life Spanx.
