When you get elevated,
They love it or they hate it
You dance up on them haters
Keep getting funky on the scene
While they jumpin’ round ya
They trying to take all of your dreams
But you can’t allow it.
~ “Tightrope” by Janelle Monae
Janelle Monae is one little bundle of something good. I played this song over and over this evening so I could get this blog together. I have a few pieces I HAVE to show. First is this dress from ruca Moyet. It’s a simple three system pieces and one prim and no sculpties. So how does she do that fabulous draped top? By exploiting the ability to make the system blouse fuller and then covering the gap between system top an skirt with a belt on the jacket layer. Brilliant. Lower arc, no scripts, and no sloppy looking sculpty prim around the middle (which I really hate).
Then I have the skin I have been gushing about lately from Maximillion because of the myriad makeup options I can exploit in Firestorm (up to five—I checked). I have put FIVE layers on my face. Maximillion gives so many options—even parted lips and shimmer for the lipstick, five eyebrow styles with 6 shades, 6 beauty marks, so on, so forth. It’s so fun!
Finally my sexy little shoes are a sneak preview from Oct Oyen, who will be bringing these shoes out in the very near future in several colors. What is amazing about these pretties is that they do not have an ankle strap or other encumbrance around the ankle to attach the foot to the leg. (If you look closely, you will see where *I* did not adjust the foot quite right. I purposefully did not fix this photo.) Check the textures on the shoe itself—the gloss on the upper and heel, the great bumpiness on the platform, the sexy ankles, the pretty little toes. Damn sexy.
And you know exactly what I mean,
Yeah I’m talkin’ bout you
You can rock or you can leave
Watch me tip without you
Then baby whether I’m high or low
Baby whether you’re high or low
Ooh, you gotta tip on the tightrope
Yeah, tip on the tightrope
