The post title, “The sea was as dark as dreams and as deep as sleep” is a small quote from A Strangeness in My Mind, the newest book by Orhan Pamuk that I just finished reading a few days ago. My review, which i linked, explains why that writer means so much to me. I loved his imagery and that influenced how I fiddled with the windlight™ settings to suggest that dark and deep sea.
This month’s Collabor88 is all about espionage, but the spywear is flexible as you can see in this outfit that is happily as comfortable on a tightrope in the sea as it would be in a hidden lair of Dr. Evil.
The Dead Dollz dress is a glorious example of lingerie-inspired clothing. With the HUD, you can choose all sorts of colors.
The dress comes with two styling options, like this with the back unzipped or with the back zipped up.
Exile did gorgeous Old Hollywood waves in this thriller-noir hair. It comes with a fedora, but I left it off. The jewelry is old, I think I got it in 2008, but I still love it, from Entranced. I used Glam Affair’s Karin applier.
The flowers, doves and tightrope are all from [anc.]
