The Back Story.

My schedule this spring means a whole lot less hanging out in SL playing dolly dress up, but when it comes to a get up like this, I find some time. Yes I do.

The Back Story.

I love this dress. And it was only 45L at Jack Spoon, a little shop I’d never heard of before until browsing through the blogs the other day and spotted some gift leggings that I figured I might as well have. So off I popped, and there was this dress.

It’s paired here with stockings that I cobbled together using some random free fishnets with some random free modifiable sheer stockings that I ‘colorized’. I was hoping to find something more funky in Etoile’s inventory that wouldn’t be all matchy-matchy and at the same time not ridiculously distracting from the dress, but she has what she has, and that’s just the way it falls out sometimes.

On Etoile’s head is a bit of swag from Bizarre Hair promoting the Crazy Hair Hunt going on this month. If you stay calm, the bees will just go about their business and not care about you. Just don’t stray too far from one spot, or they won’t find their way home, and we have to help the honey bees all we can these days.

The only downside to this dress is that it’s not mesh, and unfortunate things happen to the backside when Etoile stands in certain positions. The right butt-hider alpha might help that, though.

The Back Story.

There’s this really interesting art installation of sorts at Delicatessen that has all kinds of bizarro avatar get-ups for free. They are not cheapy looking, ‘let’s play naughty dress up’ kinds of costumes, either, but actually have some thought, originality and cleverness to them.

Here I’m only wearing a hat from one of the collections, and I wish you could see it move. It flops around almost like a living thing.

The Back Story.

I had posted this outfit – with slight variations – back in January, but I have not been happy with those pictures. They were sloppily done. I didn’t even fit the prims on my boots right.

Bad Etoile.

This is my redemption. And yes, apparently everyone does go to ChouChou.

The Back Story.

World’s End Garden still has this and other dresses out as gift items, I think. Not bad for no monies. I’m missing something at the Magic Flute installation (my location). Not something technical, mind you; I’m just not quite getting it. But I never claimed to have all that much Mozart knowledge, so there you are. Still, whether or not I ‘get’ it, it’s working as a photo location, and that’s just about all I ask of an SL sim these days.

Ix-nay on the v-day.

The Back Story.

I’m not a big V-Day fan. There are a lot of us. So here I am being apathetic at best, and perhaps even morose for the day.

It’s not just people with no sweethearts who don’t like V-Day, so don’t give me any of that ‘she-must-be-so-lonely’ shite.
