Her Cruel Arts

Cruel Arts

Here thou art painted in the dress
Of an inhuman murderess;
Examining upon our hearts
Thy fertile shop of cruel arts:
Engines more keen than ever yet
Adorned tyrant’s cabinet,
Of which the most tormenting are
Black eyes, red lips, and curled hair.

~ Andrew Marvell, The Gallery

Cruel Arts

Our mistress of the cruel arts of beauty seduces with her pale skin and deep red lips, dark eyes and curled hair. Start with the sexy burlesque outfit Synjari Myriam has made for Genre. Part of the Western theme of the event, the burlesque outfit features mesh top and bustle with a flexi skirt and lovely texturing and it’s offered at a terrific price (as is everything at Genre). Check out the lacing on the back!

My skin is one of Rocketta Haven’s surreal skins for the Designers United event going on right now, themed appropriately, “Surrealism.” While I don’t find surrealism a really sellable topic (how many times can you say “Ceci n’est pas une pipe” and wear it like you mean it?), some of the items push past the theme and offer beauty or utility. Certainly Rocketta’s ethereal set of skins got me to scamper over and with the alluring lips and gorgeous freckles on a pale gray façade, this is a beautiful alternative to the usual.

Valencia Southard teamed up with Nyunyu Kimono to offer a posing stool that includes some fabulous poses as well. While the stool seems awfully short for any avatar (you can’t see the legs amidst my skirt—I am hovering in the air), the poses are beguiling. (I did make myself 5’ tall in SL and the stool was still too short for me, incidentally.) I am not sure how the stool is surrealist but it’s certainly lovely.

My hair is Queue Marlowe’s other offering this week, a blunt banged curly ‘do with fullness and body. With a great color change hud, I was able to find this rich red color in a snap. Queue, Queue, how I love you!
