I been bad, I been good,
Houston, Texas, Hollywood.
I ain’t askin’ for much.
I said, Lord, take me downtown,
I’m just lookin’ for some tush.

~ “Tush” from ZZ Top as done by Grace Potter and the Nocturnals


A few months ago I saw a video of Grace Potter with Kenny Chesney (“You and Tequila,” which I have blogged), and Grace Potter was THE SL avatar. Long legged with perfectly flexi hair, Grace Potter is absolutely gorgeous and she has an amazing voice and stage presence. Then I saw a video of her doing the old ZZ Top song, Tush,”and I knew I had to make her in SL. (I modified the lyrics some because I think I would rather be bad in Houston than Dallas ;))

This look replicates her look in that video with a glittery silver fringed dress from Swaffette Firefly. This is one of my favorite dresses in SL, to be honest. Swaffette took advantage of flexi by building layers of prims around a nice system base and using a lovely glittering texture. This is old technology—just system and flexis—but it’s sure done well. (By the way, I realize my guitar is not the Gibson V that she sports—Boyd Krastins made this Gibson, which he gave to me as his little gift to this enterprise. Thank you, Boyd!)


Truth Hawks came out with this beautiful mesh hair with fringed bangs, and I knew I had Grace complete. If you see her in performance, her hair is layered so that when she swings around, everything flies. You can’t do that with mesh BUT you can see it curl up nicely as in my photo.

My skin is Aida Ewing’s newest, a beautifully pale blank slate for me to make up with cat eye liner from Shyla Diggs (a 50L Friday item from a few weeks ago).

And check out these guitar poses I found on Marketplace. I had to modify Tea Soup’s—she embedded them in an acoustic guitar so I just edited the whole thing to make the guitar sink into the floor so I could hold my own Gibson.


Take me back way back home,
Not by myself, not alone.
I ain’t askin’ for much.
I said, Lord, take me downtown,
I’m just lookin’ for some tush.
