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.

The longer I worked on this (particularly the head shot) the more the skin bugged me. Now, don’t get me wrong; it’s a nice skin and I thought the makeup effect on the eyes was cool. And it was a hunt item, and therefore free, and let us not complain about that. It’s just that it’s too perfect, too pretty. Etoile is looking far too glammy here. She’s out of her comfort zone. She feels more real with a somewhat less polished face.

Or maybe it’s just all those flowers lending themselves to the idea of beauty. Or the hair… is it the hair?

The Back Story.

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….
