Bowling Night

People in SL have regular nights. My Sunday night I *always* go to Tiphares, almost without fail, to dance with my pals and chat about .. well.. geeky things. We have gotten to be good friends just from this regular meeting. We visit each other, we send support and greetings, we care about each other from that simple weekly exchange. It’s the 21st centure version of a weekly bowling night.

Bowling night.. it’s where people meet up and tease and cajole and celebrate together. I wanted to put together a sort of vintage look so I relied on this terrific top by Floatie Hock, generous proprietess of the Car Wash sims and creator for Hell Bop. Check out the great detailing on this shirt—the pocket placket, the wrinkles, the little logo over the pocket. Floatie has a terrific sense of “retro,” and she outfits men even better than women. (This shirt looks absolutely terrific on a man.)

I found the jeans at Ayame Musashi’s sim, called Musashi on the map but called Hoshikuzu as a community. She has one of the best arcade areas I have seen.. I can almost smell the popcorn and soda spilled on the floor and feel that sort of sticky grimy dirt on the machines.

The skin is a new one from Keiko Morigi. She gives copious instructions in her notecard about how to adjust the mouth so it doesn’t look like… well, an intimate body part. I didn’t have to adjust my mouth, however; the lips look great on me. So if they ARE turning out to look bad on you, perhaps it really is your shape making you look like.. you have an intimate body part on your face and not the skin. The skin is beautiful—wistful and nostalgic—her ads look remarkable but they are clearly true to the skin. I especially like her eyebrows this time and the delicious little beauty marks.

I show it with Bubbles Clawtooth’s 50L loveliness. He keeps cranking ‘em out week after week, to the delight of us all. I think this hair deserves more than 50L. I can’t wait to see him bring it out in other colors.

Finally the shoes. I have gone on and on about Eponymous Trenchmouth’s craftmanship and artistry. These babies are years old and still stand the test of time. These are all prim, baby—none of that sculpty stuff. And look at the details—stitched soles, shiny and even eyelets, terrifically textured laces. Epy’s da man!

Mine’s Sunday night. Todd or Erehwon show up with the music, Aki supplies the beer, Zha brings the chips, and sometimes Mir shows up with artichoke dip or Love and Peta bring some pork rinds. Me? I provide the fashion show ;)
