“The merry year is born like the bright berry from the naked thorn.” ~ Hartley Coleridge
Everyone seems to dress in dismal colors during the winter, reinforcing the gray tones of the sky and the ground. I prefer to make colors pop for the winter, starting with these brilliant jeans from TeamRedgrave. Ingeniously, they have made a mesh piece that can be rezzed to color as you please (I chose this raspberry) using the SL color tinter—no scripts, no worries. Just rez a pair and color them up. I have tried the jeans on a much more voluptuous avatar and an skinny short one and always, they fit like a perfectly and have the great butt you see here. Seeing is believing.
This beautiful hand-drawn skin popped up for sale at Egoisme this weekend, and so I had to dash to try it on. Ramses Meredith has put together a package of skins with make-ups, skin tone tinter (called Vividtone), shape, and even elven ears that will give you a complete package from one purchase. I layered the available eye makeup with a lipstick (raspberry of course) from Mocksoup Graves to create this look.
My hair, from Truth Hawks, comes entwined with this gorgeous scarf that includes a color-changing hud for 12 different looks. This look all started from this scarf, which popped when I changed it to raspberry, and filled my winter with color.
