“Beauty: it curves, curves are beauty. Shapely goddesses, Venus, Juno: curves the world admires.”…James Joyce
I am back at Furillen, the bleak and desolate sim replicating a limestone quarry and luxury hotel off Sweden’s coast. It’s bleak and spare and there is an austere beauty that makes it compelling. There is nothing austere, however, about me today.
Siddean Munro has released her newest mesh body, the Slink Physique Hourglass, a body for the curvilinear, the well-endowed Mae Wests and the wasp-waisted Dollys and Scarletts. Standard mesh will not fit because there is nothing standard about Marilyn Monroe, Rita Hayworth or any of the other bombshells whose curves defined female beauty far centuries.
Women who opt for the Hourglass figure will have to wear appliers or specially made clothing, though certainly many clothing designers will rush to serve this market. Blueberry, whose dress I am wearing in these pictures, is among the first and even gifted all purchasers of the Hourglass Physique with a free bikini in the mesh body’s packaging from Slink.
The dress is body conscious as you would expect from a dress made to coincide with the release of the lush Slink Hourglass body. It comes with a HUD allowing users to choose the main color (in this case white), a graphic print in silver or gold on the main color and a tri-color option as I am wearing.
My shoes are Glamistry’s wonderfully sleek Crocus and the color options include changing the show, the heel cap and the heels and soles. The metals are also color change.
I added some jewelry from LaGyo for this month’s Collabor88 and a recent hairstyle released by Truth. Truth’s Ryleigh is a fun casual asymmetric cut with lots of curl.
My makeup comes from combining a couple Glam Affair appliers for the Lelutka Mesh head. In this case Kaia for the skin and the eyes and Lotte for the lips. I like to mix it up to add more versatility and show how we don’t have to wear our makeup out of the box.
