Irish Antrim Outfit and Dress
The Irish Antrim outfit can be worn in two ways. It can actually be worn in more based on the wearer's personal preference. You can wear as many layers of this as you wish. As a tunic style bib dress over Thai (not remotely Irish but I just like them:) style fishing pants or just as a short dress with navy blue tights. And for those who want to have less layers you could simply wear the bib dress. All choices are valid.
The Irish Antrim Tea Dress is simply a midi length dress. Both the Tea and the Bib dresses are from LK Clutterfly mesh templates.
I chose the Antrim Tartan because it is personal to me. Part of my family ancestry descends from Belfast, which is in County Antrim.
March 17th is just around the corner AKA Paddy's Day/St. Patrick's Day
As a Pagan of Irish Ancestry it's a complicated holiday for me but I do celebrate. It does champion and showcase Irish culture, music, food, and traditions in the modern day, which I love. And I was quite lucky to live in Dublin for the better part of a year in my 20s and got to have a very authentic Paddy's day there. The origins of the holiday are many layered and often contested:
One of the feats dear old "St. Pat" is known for is "driving the snakes out of Ireland". Ireland has never had snakes and this was symbolic of his driving the Pagans out or trying to stamp out the Pagan religion through colonization and conversion to Catholicism.
Snakes have become symbolic to many Irish Pagans so I have included a Celtic Snake design on the Irish Antrim Bib Dress. Celebrate the day or not in the way that speaks to you but there's a little history to go with the freebie clothes I'm offering:)
You'll see between the dresses there is a Bodhran. This Bodhran was made with talent and care by Marianna Monentes. Thank you Mari:) I added a pose and some sound so it's a collaboration. Enjoy!
