Still round the corner there may wait, A new road or a secret gate….J.R.R.R. Tolkien
I stopped by Faster Pussycat today and saw that Honey Bender-Auer had opened a new store across the plaza called BENDER. Featuring all original mesh and textures, it still has the rock superstar aesthetic that animates Faster Pussycat married to sleek and minimalist silhouettes. This Kyo dress was a must for me. I love how it echoes 18th century silhouettes that we are used to seeing in rich prints and maximal embellishment and here we see it in a solid silver, without visible seams or lines and not a trace of embellishment. It is a celebration of form and it is exquisite. I only have one quibble and it is minor. Since it is sleeveless it was not rigged to the arms or shoulders and so it is not very flexible when moving, It works well with most straightforward poses but if you raise your arms…well, just don’t do that. Thankfully, most of us do not run around SL with our arms raised.
I used Flair’s Maitreya Fingernails °5 as the inspiration for the rest of my styling options including lipstick shade and shoes.
This picture shows the lovely shape again It’s shot at Tillicum Island, a beautiful sim that is closing at the end of August – so get there before it’s too late.
My jewelry includes the Kabuki necklace from Mandala and Etched Bell Earrings from Paper Couture. The hair is Olympus a recent release from Truth. It comes with a visor, too, for wearing with a more casual outfit.
I am wearing the Ramonda heels from Glamistry and I took the color cues for them from my nail polish. These shoes allow you to choose the color of the metal, the heels, toe caps and the uppers.
I was enjoying the lashes so much I decided to play around a little more and shot this picture and they overlaid a texture from Yolandish at Deviant Art just for fun.
