The Silk Road

The Silk Road

Afghanistan, a country of mountains and rocks, caves and plains, is actually one of the critical junctures for many trading routes and has been for centuries—since the Silk Road. Perhaps it’s the rough terrain, the harsh conditions, the many peoples passing through, the general forceful nature of the cultures, but Afghanistan certainly seems a formidable place.

Trill Zapatero thinks it’s a land of her dreams, specifically the amazing people in this land and their artistry. That is why she has built the Afghanistan Museum in SL, a beautiful space of mountains and caves with rivers and buildings that give a snapshot of Afghanistan. What really interests Trill are the embroideries and textures of Afghani clothing, so she uses this in all her designs. This outfit is a complete ensemble from her newest collection for her store, Meena, and shows all the beauty that Trill sees—intricate textures, bright colors and beautiful silhouettes. Who would NOT want to  see themselves in SL this way—colorful, vibrant and full of life? Sissy Pessoa’s new boots add to the look with an amazing texture that would brighten most any outfit.

The Silk Road

I wear a skin from Crushed Clarity that has a very blank makeup so you can overlay other makeups, which is much appreciated. The skin itself has great eyebrows and beautifully lined eyes and a great little beauty mark. I chose glossy lips from Mocksoup Graves, which adds a little dimension to the face and an additional touch of prettiness. I tucked hair from moca Loup under my kufi. It required a little modification but works so well!
