Trouble in mind, I’m blue
But I won’t be blue always.
The sun is gonna shine in my backdoor, someday
If there were an award for most improved designer of 2009, it would have to go to Tracy Rubble of Trubble whose work has gone from textures that lacked detail to textures that have the sort of details that give depth and interest to the clothing. You can see that in the light and shadow of the skirt, the wrinkling shadows of the sash and in the overall quality of the entire dress. The dress is sleeveless, so being January, I added a little shrug from Cipher.
Hah! Someone turned the heat up so here you can see it without that jacket. Please note the lack of distortion in the bodice as the zebra print stretches over the breast. Also note how smoothly the seams are joined. By most improved, I don’t mean that she merely has become good, I mean she has adopted the skills and hallmarks of the best designers: good seam-matching, prints that maintain their integrity over breasts and hips, and texture details on all parts of the clothing that give it depth, highlights and shadows
Here with the full skirt on display, you really can see how well she has done the texture highlights. I am wearing Digit Darkes lovely Messina shoes with the zebra print. I know you can’t see them, but they are cute enough for a mention anyway.
And look at these straps maintaining their integrity and not flailing around the mesh trying to figure out where to go! Brava, Tracy! The earrings, by the way, are Dark Mouse’s Wild Animal Earrings that come with matching bangles and belt. The necklace is from Paper Couture. The hair is from Cake – Dakota. I had planned to wear a straighter, slightly longer style – from a different hair stylist, but it was script mod only and after 45 minutes of trying to select the correct damn prim that was coming out of my neck I just deleted the stupid thing. Arggh, I hate no mod hair. See that’s why some hairstyles, like this one, get worn again and again and again. They are just good, they are mod, and they are simple and reliable and don’t require 45 minutes of work to get exactly nowhere.
The skin I am wearing is the lovely Jesse from Belleza. I just love the healthy glow of this skin and the luscious gloss of the lips. Yum!
