Emily Dickinson, Poem XLIX
Emily Dickinson wrote about elves more than once. She truly saw the world in a grain of sand and was inspired by the natural world and by her fantasies. Emilia Redgrave has been inspired by fantasy lately. Whether you look at her dramatic Trinity skins inspired by vampires or her rugged action hero King skins for men complete with blood and bruises or her latest release for Vanity Universe Skin Fair, Avie, the Fairy skin, these skins are important contributions to the fantastical lives of Second Life residents. Just as Trinity is the quintessential vampiress, Avie perfectly expresses the naturalistic world of elves and fairies with her fresh, glowing healthy skin and that healthy outdoor blush on her cheeks.
The body is lush with shading and highlights that give it a natural luminous quality. There are tattoo and undershirt options in the Accessories Pack to give you some more uplift, though I decided to give it a pass. Elves with boob jobs can’t shoot arrows.
Each makeup has its own lip color, but Redgrave included two tattoo lipsticks in the accessories pack to give you more options.
There are also some very dramatic elven fingernails. I am not sure how well they are suited to drawing a bow, though. Perhaps they are for plucking lutes and harps?
With sixteen makeups, two tattoo lip colors, cleavage, nails, a hair base and quality that has a proven track record, these really are must-have skins. I love how this fresh looking skin that embodies that naive innocence of some fantasy creatures or, to be frank, disguises their cunning wiles, without looking adolescent.
