Several years back, Billy Bragg and Wilco did a few albums on Woody Guthrie songs. Guthrie wrote the lyrics but they were never recorded. Guthrie’s daughter allowed Bragg and Wilco to write music and record the songs, Among them was the cryptic Ingrid Bergman.
If you’ll walk across my camera,
I will flash the world your story,
I will pay you more than money
I thought about her when I chose this background for these pictures, It’s reminiscent of Scandinavian embroidery and rosemaling. A few years back, dinking around on some genealogy website, I discovered she and my dad were cousins – sixth cousins, but still, he would have love to have known that. He admired her so. She once said, “Be yourself. The world worships the original,” which seems fitting since today I am not wearing my mesh head. Now worship me. 🙂
I am wearing a fun dress from Katat0nik that you can get at The Arcade. There are all sorts of versions, but this is the most outrageously Christmassy. I was doing the game at Honikawa and thought it would be fun to dress the part.
While I was at Honikawa, I stopped at the shopping village and picked up this string of lights. It cracked me up. I usually am not tempted by silly wearables, but this was too perfect. Look how well it fits over the sleeves.
Could any shoes have worked more perfectly than the T-Strap heels from The Secret Store? The stockings are also from The Secret Store.
I adore the EarthStones Christmas Lights Necklace and Earrings. However, I could not wear it while I was playing the game because it sent me way over the script limit. I had to take them off or get booted.
Working my way down to the lowest level of scripts, I removed all but my mesh feet. This gave me the chance to try out the new skin from PXL Creations and it is beautiful. Now if Hart Larsson would just get busy on appliers for Lelutha heads.
