I feel spring coming on, despite the late winter awfulness out there. And my mood from yesterday — wanting to counter the in-your-face, ramped up, cartoon sex bombardment the feeds have been heavily besieged with lately — continues. The promise of spring and all the wacky pudendum-bearing hawty pony-riders trotting around lately push me right into the land of too precious. I think I’ll be hiding out here a while.

I popped in world last night thinking about doing nothing in particular except maybe fixing a bad job I had done on a previous post. But then I heard this chatter. Something about some kind of insane blow out at the Sea Hole? Stuff for the cheaps? A thousand little SL voices all chiming in at once about miracles and surprises and one great splendiferous gas at one great splendiferous gas of a store?
Okay. Sign me up. So off I went to see what all the noise and hubbub was about. Yes, there is one item in each of the collections that’s being offered for 50L, which ain’t bad for some cleverly designed stuff. My one disappointment was in the color choices for the sale items. I was so ready to plunk down Ls for versions in yellows and reds and oranges, but everything offered at that price was more in the black, grey and lilac family. That’s all well and good, mind you, but when you’re hankering for a rich orange, the traditional half-mourning color of lilac just doesn’t quite cut it.
Know what I’m sayin’?
Still, a good dress is a good dress. And I am soooo pleased to be bringing to the feeds this much needed respite from the maddening inundation of virtual “whore” aesthetics….
We on a Flickr group I belong to were having a discussion about decent skins and shapes of the Asian sort. There are a lot of ways to be Asian, mind you. We think SL designers should get on the stick with making more ‘real’ and various ways to be Asian in SL that don’t reference manga and anime. Curio came out with a nice one a few months ago, and I finally broke down, laying out the Ls for it. It’s not bad, but I want some wagers as to whether I’m Japanese, Korean or Chinese-Vietnamese.
