The Sea of Love


Mami Jewell of AZUL probably designs more gowns than anyone for the Miss SL competitions. The Linette gown was designed for Miss Indonesia Mio Linette and it comes in twelve standard colors and two limited edition colors. When I walked in the gown the ebb and flow of the feathers at the bottom made me think of the gracefully flowing fins of a beta fish, so for fun I headed to Borinquin Zyn’s underwater tableau where there are underwater animations. Below the cut, you can see a video I made and see what I mean about this lovely gown.

The Sea of Love is an emotionally evocative song written by Phil Phillips and recorded by him long ago. It has been covered many times.  Most are pretty good, including covers by Iggy Pop and the inimitable Tom Waits. There is a beautiful cover by Emily West. Some are terrible, I like Robert Plant but that was an over-produced mess. Myy favorite version by far, though, is this one by Cat Power. It has so much fragility and tenderness. Besides, Cat Power is one of Oscar’s favorite singers. He is my cat and he has strong musical preferences. Please do not expect much, I know you are supposed to be able to do all sorts of stuff with iVideo, but it baffles me.



I also used a few poses from Ma Vie – underwater poses from her Mermaid series – for a few still pictures since I have no clue how to clip a picture from a video. 150818_003


I chose this hair from Alice Project for its sleekness which is as close as you are going to get to the idea of hair flowing behind in the water without lots of flexi.




My makeup is Glam Affair’s Stella applied to Lelutka’s Mesh Stella head. I dialed down the lips a bit using the Lelutka hud. The jewelry is from Donna Flora.
