Culture Kitsch


The theme for April’s Collabor88 is Kitsch. Well, Kitsch never had it so good. Normally, I use the word pejoratively, describing some tired gimcrack tchotchke. Don’t get me wrong. I have kitsch. Most of mine is Scandinavian folk art, but it’s still kitsch. The kitsch is in this outfit from ISON is the flying bird patter in the sheer bodice, but in such skillful hands, it’s kitsch as art.


The ISON dress can be worn with the long sleeves that I chose or as a sleeveless sheath. It comes in black, blue, green, gray, purple, red and tan and there is no reason you cannot mix the system layer bodices from one color with the mesh dress pieces of another – just to add more interest.


I think it is more formal in the solid color and more casual and fun with two colors. Using the bright green shoes from Kunglers’ new Celine pumps worked well with both options since I added green earrings and a bit of green on the eyes shadow to repeat the color.


The manicure comes via FLAIR’s new manicure huds for SLink hands. Just make sure you have updated your old hands at the redelivery terminal in the store.


The necklace and bracelets are from Glow Studio – also for Collabor88 in wonderful kitschy colors. That color scheme also inspired the vibrant eyes in the PXL skin for Collabor88. The earrings are from Miam Miam on Marketplace -where every item is 10 L. The hair is the recent release Tymber from Truth.


My shooting with projectors did not show the colors well enough to use for the entire post, but I wanted to show you this effect creating using two projectors, both with a simple white circle on a black square texture that I uploaded for the projector. I tinted the big projector blue and the smaller FOV projector was left white. I like the effect from using the white and blue projectors together.
