The flower is the poetry of reproduction. It is an example of the eternal seductiveness of life. ~ Jean Giraudoux
The heat this past week has made the hydrangeas burst with bloom, nodding their cumbersome blossoms in the weak hot breeze and making everything glorious. Quark Fallen has made some beautiful oversized hydrangeas on display at his sim Leroy, and so I shot photos among them.
I am pleased with this 20s-influenced look I put together. I donned the long gown from Ariadna Garrigus that includes a beautiful back strap and a glittering beaded Art Deco-influenced pattern. I added beads from M4r1lyn Magic and used Siddean Munro’s mesh hands to show off Giela Delpaso’s great new manicure set. I love being able to paint my nails in SL. It’s like going to my local manicurist and seeing the shelves of hundreds of colors and being able to pick and choose.
What makes the look, of course, is this 20s hair cut from Plurabelle Laszlo. The hair includes a HUD to let you change the color of the flower and the hair tie. I absolutely love how she brought Louise Brooks back to life with this cut.
Of course the icing on the cake is Aida Ewing’s gorgeous Katya skin, being offered now at the Liaison Collective. With Aida’s characteristic style, the skin is elegant with gorgeously lined eyes, deep ruby lips and beautifully defined brows.
