It Doesn’t Matter What They Say……In the Jealous Games People Play…..HEY HEY HEY!
Back in the day when Cajsa and I did all the events on Vicious Island, we spent FOREVER planning what we were going to wear. So when MDR announced it was going to have an 80s night…..I went back into my “OMG I HAVE TO HAVE THE CUTEST COSTUME EVEN THOUGH I CAN’T WIN A PRIZE” mode.
I had already picked up the super fun 80s Girl Freebie from Layniewear, just to HAVE. MONTHS ago I picked that up. So I knew that I already had some fabulous acid washed jeans and faboo CHOOSE LIFE shirt to start the outfit.
This outfit is a great example of being able to put together a really sweet costume, especially if you like to enter contests to earn the Lindens – but not spending a lot on it. The base outfit cost me zero, and came with a LOT more than I’m wearing. I tossed on some fun hair I picked up at Free Speerit when they were getting rid of all their hair, the free bracelets from fresh baked goods and a free hair band that came with some hair at Savoir Hair. (The hair is called Heidi I believe).
The other big thing I wanted to point out was the skin! Another great, FUN free skin from Fabulously Free in SL! This is one of the skins from her Jem and the Holograms set. And even if you didn’t live in the 80s you’ll recognize the makeup style from 80s Videos – totally fun retro look. I recolored the freebie bracelets from Fresh Baked goods and VOILA! I was set.
Now my one extravagance is the shoes.
I fell I love with the Porn Star Xtra Hi Tops at the Shoe Expo and they were totally my big splurge. Besides being color change on every side, including laces, you can change laces style, flaps up or down and size. But for me, the absolute capper, was the attention to detail you see on the toe of the shoe.
Anyone who ever owned a pair of Chucks knows, you write your boyfriend’s name on there with a Bic pen. And if you break up – it’ll wipe off with some spit!
