I’ve been throwing on this and that over the past several days, trying to wrap my head around why I bother. I bother, I guess, because everyone has to play at some point or another. i’m not sure I can go much deeper into it than to explain that I like to play. I like doll houses and I like stylin my virtual representation of ego.
So there. That’s about it. And here she is in a hunt item that is looking way hipper than a lot of hunt looks can manage. Nice job Fabienne Bolissima Couture.

The Back Story.
I had a pretty good idea of where I wanted to go with this from the start. Veering rather drastically off from the direction of my last challenge response, this “liver” color pulled me into the sepia-toned world of the 1930’s with a strong nod to the film noir era to come. No happy day-glo here, folks. This is Berlin, circa 1930, and happy, happy, joy, joy ist einfach nicht in ordnung.
I love this aesthetic, though. This is far more me than the festive colors we’ve been having lately. I decided to add just a little popette of color in the yellow shoes with red soles and the yellow beads. A nice Liz Arden red or a rich coral would work particularly well, too, but I liked the hint of jaundice suggested by the yellow.
The sim is one of my favs, the 1920s Berlin Project. Put on your era-appropriate duds and head over there for a look-see. It struck the right tone for the direction I decided to go this week.
The Back Story.
This color is what I call close enough for a galloping horse. That’s an old theater costumer phrase that means a costume looks good enough to pass for authentic when seen on someone galloping across the screen, if you know what I mean.
This ridiculous little stub of a ciggie with the crazy, Mohawked flamingo is my latest favorite smoke. I think it’s just about everybody’s latest favorite smoke. This little dude is all over the virtual place.
