Looking Fresh In 1891


After reading about the Legacies 1891 sims in Honour McMillan’s blog yesterday, I had to run over there for a shoot. Thankfully, they allow you to join a group and wear an observer’s tag so you can be safe from zombies and Jack the Ripper. It’s an eerie place and I thought its grim danger might be a striking contrast to the cheery spring joie de vivre of my outfit.


I was not joking about the zombies. They sounded so scary! By the way, this sim cleverly has a tip jar to remind visitors to help support its continued existence. I try to remember to tip sim owners when I visit for a shoot – if they haven’t placed a tip jar reminder, I just pay a flower or a tree. We all benefit from these wonderful public sims and so many are disappearing. I know each little tip is a drop in the buck of tier, but buckets do get filled by drips and drops.

This outfit began with the too-gorgeous-to-be-believed flared pants from Peqe. I love the fabric which would be quite at home in a Victorian outfit – but they weren’t so lucky as to have flared pants back then. The pant leg sculpts are fabulous and flow so much more naturally than the majority of pant prims. These are long pants – as in looooong pants – so you may have to adjust a bit around your shoes. My only quibble is that the textures in the high waist that you wear on a shirt layer do not quite line up. The pants are gorgeous, that would make them perfect. When something is so beautifully made as these pants, we unfairly want perfection in every aspect, don’t we?  These are one of the Peqe’s items for Culture Shock so you can look for them there when it opens tomorrow!

Ingenue :: Nina

Speaking of shoes, mine are adorable even though you cannot see them. They are the new Nina flats from Ingenue with a cute little bow on the vamp. I grabbed the pic from Ingenue designer Betty Doyle’s Flickr.


I decided not to go with a cream, gold or brown shirt, though I considered it. Instead I went for a bigger contrast with this fabulous Arabesque top from LeeZu. I just love the cheerful, romantic floral fabric.


Under the jacket, I wore the strategically draped arrangement of necklaces and chains on a clothing layer that is another top from LeeZu. I love how they worked together with the pants and jacket. If you squint, you can see what I was talking about with the layers not lining up, but you can also see that with this fabric it is really a minor flaw.

My skin is PXL Creations Kasumi which is a favorite of mine. The hair is from Exile. The style is a fun little updo on the side and is called Liv. It’s one of three Exile offerings for Culture Shock. The earrings are from Paper Couture – speaking of which, aren’t you all getting a little antsy for a new release?
