Rara Avis

Rara avis in terris nigroque simillima cycno. ~ Juvenal

The rare bird shows her face more often in SL. It’s a place that attracts interesting and amazing women—women who are not afraid of technology, women who want to exercise their creative and intellectual minds, women who believe in a bigger world beyond them, reachable by pixels and words.

For the rare bird, the designs of Kimmera Madison are a joy. Every single piece of Kimmera’s is new and refreshing—she doesn’t rely on old outfits and rebuild and redo. She enjoys exercising her creative energies in SL, using all her skills to make pieces that are well-constructed and interesting. The best part of this dress is the skirt, which has a weird alpha sculpty thing going on which could kill the dress, but Kimmera actually uses it to her advantage, decorating the surfaces with an embossed texture that looks terrific.

I donned a cutting edge hair from Olli Braveheart to make the look a bit edgier (and to keep it all under the stylish hat Kimmera made. My skin is one of Minnu Palen’s mixed with the tattoo lipstick from another skin. Since she did not color the edges of the lipstick with a skin tone (or not that I could discern), I could easily overlay the lipstick from my Lola Sunkissed fatpack over the Estelle light skin. I have seen some tattoo lipsticks employ the skin tone to refine the edges, I presume, and that always turns out to be a fail. This worked really well.
