When Troy Vogel agreed to build for Fashion for Life, I nearly fainted. I had met him at the SL 8th Birthday and we hit it off (mostly because I was a huge fan girl and he was a gracious person). If you have ever been to his Mission Home store, you would know what I mean. It’s all just stunning.
Wehn I told Troy I was putting him on a “Future” sim at FFL, he was a little surprised but open. When I told him I was putting Sonatta Morales on his sim, he was delighted. I pictured a future sim with a retro look—kind of like the sets for Caprica. He was all for it. That’s why the trees are as they are, the ground in spots is cracked with lava—this is not the past—it IS the future.
And darn if Sonatta didn’t set up the most exquisite shop. I love how she has put out earrings and shoes, jewelry, furniture, rugs. It is absolutely charming and absolutely perfect for the sim. This dress is also perfect and one of her Fashion for Life offerings. With a beautiful print, a perfectly proportioned sculpty skirt (that makes sense—skirts like this DON’T flex in RL), and a bow at the waist, this dress is ideal in many ways. She even made matching shoes!
I pair it with this future-world skin from AcIde Innovia, which is one of her FFL offerings. Imagine this: water is scarce, the sun is too bright. Perhaps women have to wear a layer over their RL skin to provide protection and keep moisture in their bodies. And perhaps this skin is gray so as to deflect sun with its special properties. I don’t know. I am taking cold medications (FFL has finally worn me down), but it all fits into the theme I think.
