Since the JustBecause pants and the Moon Amore top are both color change, this outfit has about eleventy million options.
Collabor88’s theme for its August Birthday celebration is Plastic Fantastic. In my first life, I would not be caught dead wearing plastic, but this is not first life. Here I don’t have to worry about whether fabrics breathe and my avatar does not sweat, so there are no fetid swamps of trapped and suffocating skin. Instead, we have the bright, shiny flash of plastic. I like the dress from Baiastice that takes advantage of plastics best qualities to give us that flirty hem and gleaming sheen.
One of my favorite songs ever is “There’s a Boat That’s Leaving Soon for New York” from Porgy and Bess as sung by Phoebe Snow. This promenade on Staten Island made me think of the song. To be honest, lots of things make me think of this song. It’s on my iPod and I play it frequently. Her voice was amazing and she was a heroic woman.
There’s a boat that’s leaving soon for New York
Come with me
That’s where we belong, baby
You and me can live that high life in New York
Come with me
There we can’t go wrong, baby
I love this new Plume dress from Basaltice with its little feathers all over it. It comes in so many versions and I want to wear them all. One of the things I love about Sissy Pessoa is when she does prints, she does a lot of prints that are not just several shades of one print. The dress also has a long version with a long sheer skirt over the shorter opaque skirt.
My poses are all from a new HUD from Voir…a bento hud and more importantly an (almost) still Hud that is not so fidgety. Yay! I used it in this video reviewing the book Good Friday on the Rez.
Beaches and dragons, camping equipment and drive-ins, campers, canoes, and wedding dresses. All those things will remain in one room for just one more day….so if you have been waiting for traffic to slow down at The Arcade, you better hop to it.
I love it when different elements from The Arcade come together like the armor from Fedora and the dragon elements from C L A Vv at June’s Arcade which ends at Friday night. I actually loved the wings from the C L A Vv dragon, but ended up using these from Conflict Angel because I wanted animated wings for my video blog below . I reviewed the second book in an amazing fantasy series, Legends of the First Empire.
