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.

Valentines1

[location: sopor aeternum + la malvada mujer v-day zone]

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.

I chose.

[location: you choose]

The Back Story.

Not all art installations on SL are all that interesting, but You Choose has some engaging visuals and is worth a peek. The busy, officious worker robots are charming.

So is this group gift mesh dress from Nectar, combo-ed here with a pair of tights Jane’s handy-dandy lil piggy collection and my [squee] favorite gartered socks action, these from a group gift outfit from Crickets.

Apparently there’s a WomenStuff Hunt version of the dress, too, that one more of a peachy color, but I could not find the little red t-shirt hunt item for neither love nor money… or more accurately, just wandering around and lurking on other hunters in the hopes they would show they way. I guess I could look up the hints, or something. Lazy.

Tunnel Vision
[location: 3d michigan role play sim]

The Back Story.

I can’t do role play. I’ve decided that I really don’t have the constitution for it. In the middle of it, I find myself just wanting to say, “Oh come on… really?”

That said, I guess if I am being “real” with myself, I have to admit to “roleplaying” all the time in SL, because Etoile is someone who is somewhat different than the woman behind the curtain, as they say. It doesn’t become an issue, because I basically just go about my business in world and never let questions of identity be raised about me. I don’t stick around long enough for that to happen. I have a momentary desire to play at some sort of make believe thing, but it doesn’t last long and by the time I log in again, whatever avis I’ve picked up along the way as “friends” are pretty much forgotten about.

I’m a virtual sociopath. Nice. That must be Etoile’s roleplay.
