I have been feeling a lot of ennui about SL lately.
This look reflects that. It’s actually a lovely look in sepia with a great dress from Anyusha Lilienthal. I love the print and the sleeves. Check out the thin little belt holding up the sculpty ruffled skirt. I removed the chest prim because the square neckline is so well done and charming as it is. It also shows off the pile of beads from Nena Janus I am wearing. This outfit is a triumph of using sculpties and textures judiciously in both the dress and jewelry.
I was turned on to Jaden Foxclaw’s skins by Voshie Paine, and I wanted to exploit the melancholy and wistfulness of this skin by opting to make it more modern and contemporary in look rather than going towards the ephemeral lolita or vampire look. I did this by topping my head with a sassy hair from chiaki Xue, who makes these wavy short hair cuts with incredible ease.
The photo was not touched up. Taken directly in SL with shadows. The beauty of creators’ work in SL keeps curing the ills of ennui.
