Bento makes me happier than I thought it would. My happiness comes from things like these poses from Gingerfish that have Bento hand movements built right in. When Bento first came out, I was dubious, afraid that more complexity would strain my already struggling computer to the breaking point. I also moaned about one more thing to learn. I dawdled. I did not rush to buy bento hands immediately. I waited hoping it would all be figured out by someone else or even just go away. But it didn’t and both Slink and Maitreya released hands optimized for Bento and my computer did not fold over in a faint. So here we are. Animators are busy adapting and creating poses that capitalize on this new expressiveness and I am wondering why I was such a grouch about it. I guess I must be getting crotchety in my old SLage.
I kind of fell in several sorts of love with the skirt and jacket from Emery. The Stella skirt has two options with a latte stripe or a pearl stripe. The Bastet jacket has bold lapels that give it a relaxed, casual air while being very fashion conscious. They are at Collabor88 this month and a knotted tee is also sold to accompany them. I decided to go a different way, though, and chose this top from Baiastice.
I liked the idea of the lace cami from Baiastice. I also liked the idea of showing that the Bastet jacket works works with more than just the top that was made to go with it. That kind of flexibility is always a bonus in my book.
Pure Poison released some shoes at Collabor88 that are a texture lovers dream. I did not count all the prints and colors in the texture hud because I cannot count that high. (Kidding) Needless to say, these sandals will be something to pull out over and over and over.
LaGyo released some modern jewelry with quartz crystals that I thought suited the modern sensibility of my outfit. In contrast, my hair from Rezology is a classic. The Agnes skin from Glam Affair is lovely and has beautiful eye shadows and lipsticks included.
