Fellini Couture: Checkmate

Fellini Couture;s Checkmate is another fantastical creation from the mind of Joy Fellini.  She is the Grandmaster of designing wearable art, and the Checkmate Gown is yet another proof of this.  This is a Romantic Chess game, characterized by bold attacks and sacrifices, but the advantage will be yours. The opening move comes from the pawned hat, with the strong swirls of black and white.

The Confetti Silver Face Tattoo from [White~Widow] fits quite well with this gown, as do the Aphrodite Earrings S2 and Aphrodite II Necklace from Alienbear’s Design. (Please click on the photos for a closer look)

The bodice is a bold black, setting the stage for your king hunt to come.  Checkmate will be yours; there is no doubt of this.  Your opponent will surely leave pawns en pris and you will gain more advantage en passant.  The black gloves with prim cuffs set the tone for your coming checkmate.  The white floral at the hip is reminiscent of the king you will capture, helpless and yet lovely by your side. The skirt is flecked with diagonals of tiny white diamonds to catch the eye and distract players.

This gown is coming from a winning position, and will definitely force a checkmate against any defense. Nothing about this gown is forced, but rather comes from a careful concern to strategy.  You will find many focal points with few escape squares left for your opponent.  The alternating dark and light squares with many diagonals open up room for discovering attacks and check.

You will stay cool and calm whilst showing all others the brilliancy of your game.  You will absolutely have the initiative.  You will have others saying, “J’adouble” with these pieces, to see if they are movable or not (you will know).

The hemline provides plenty of room for interposing, but the ultimate ending will always be capturing the attacking piece on the way to positioning the opponent’s king in check, so that they have no legal move left; thus you have them just where you want them:  checkmate.

As you move away from the game, you will leave behind a saddened player, but one who still admires you (who can resist that low back?) and will surely beckon you back for another game.  Thus, the tournament begins.
