Last Days at the Beach

Well, this is it. Summer’s almost over. One more chance to get to the beach over Labor Day before the season ends.

Today it’s a beautiful day and an ideal opportunity for me to wear a skin I have always liked and admired from Miasnow. Its combination of photosourcing and hand drawing reveals a beautiful African-American woman. I find it hard to find darker skins that represent well in-world—I am not sure what everyone’s experience is. But this one is fantastic.

I am showing a swimsuit from Shiryu Musashi. Shiryu, a long time designer in SL, took a break from commerce for a while, pursuing other projects (including doing the fashion curating for the Rinascimento Virtuale show in Florence, Italy, last year). He is back and determined to get your Linden. This swimsuit is one of his newest offerings. With his careful use of prims and hand-drawn textures, it’s a refreshing change from the latest photosourced, painted-on swimsuits out there.

I discovered UZURI on a hunt for skins. Bella Bombast offers some terrific jewelry at her store—chunky and crafty. Her pieces are fashion statements by themselves and compliment many outfits.

Check out these fashionable wedges from Armidi Gisaci. The darlings of the fashion grid for a time, the group has established their business with a stellar website for shopping. (Every content creator on the grid is jealous—admit it). The textures are fabulous on these shoes, but they need to talk to their shoe makers—system toes are so 2008. Sculpty toes are where it’s at!

  1. I have been a huge fan of Bella’s for a while. I love all of her chunky earrings. I did not know of Shiryu Masashi, but will definitely have to check the place out!

    Oh, and your eyes look wonderful in the close-up. May I ask where you got them?

  3. Harper, HOW COULD YOU ??

    You are forcing me to choose between SL two most knowledgeable not to mention equally beautiful female fashionsitas.

    I now have to choose “Harper OR Swirly”

    You say QUOTE – “The textures are fabulous on these shoes, but they need to talk to their shoe makers—system toes are so 2008. Sculpty toes are where it’s at!”

    Well Harper on Thursday, December 18, 2008 in her post – Fabulous New Prosthetic Feet, Swirly announced QUOTE – “Swirly’s favourite part of these fabulous feet is the succulent toes, such delicate little sausages. Swirly isn’t sure if they are edible but will be sure to find out later when she procures the appropriate condiments. They certainly look tasty from here!”

    How to decide? I want to have my cake and eat it too. I know one thing any food has to be hidden before Swirly scoffs it down.

    Now as to the prim toes there are still several important questions to be answered. I mean does one roast, grill, pan-fry, kebab, deep-fry and then what to use as a dipping sauce??

    Decisions, decisions.
