Always in motion is the future. ~ Yoda
I dressed up recently for a party about the future (it’s 2013, after all, and we avoided the end of the world AND the fiscal cliff so yes, there IS a future). I have to admit I was rather pleased with my look so I feel I had to share it. First is this elegant dress from Saby Clary of Utopia. With this sensational silver texture (so rich) and five different tops, it’s a dress that will give infinite options, especially with the additional accessories—2 different scarf styles, 2 different tiaras, a necklace, shoulder pieces and gloves.
I would say Saby still relies on prims quite a bit—its how she finds beautiful movement in her dresses with flexis. However, she also relies on them too heavily for her accessories, and I think she would do better exploring mesh in combo with flexis and system pieces to cook up some really great things and take the clunkiness out of her ensembles. (For example, the necklace is a poorly fitting, dashed off prim piece that she could easily replace with something better.)
My otherworldly skin is one that Aida Ewing offered and I am sure for some event. Lately Aida has offered so many one off, funky and beautiful makeups, it’s hard to keep track, but I am sure she has this available at her store. My earrings are a terrific pair I found from Tosy Xue. They worked for the outfit and at the price were ideal.
I want to point out that the lashes from LeLutka have color change—I don’t think a lot of people know or exploit this. I made them green for this shot to emphasize my turquoise eyes from Ikon Innovia. And my hair—I love the idea of retro into the future—like the show Caprica. These curls on top held Saby’s tiara so perfectly and conveyed that sort of future where technology would help you getting your hair to stay like this easily (like Princess Leia’s buns).
The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams. ~ Eleanor Roosevelt
