Out of Touch

OoT 2

Manic moves and drowsy dreams
Or living in the middle
Between the two extremes.

OoT 2

Once in a while I have a guest blogger. I have had Asima Saad on the blog before and she wanted to cook up another look and blog entry, which I gladly accepted. Asima does a lot of RP and loves writing and dressing up. Hope you enjoy her look and story as much as I did.

Leah glanced upward at the clock on the wall and cracked her gum.

The rink was empty, and even the weirdos had called it a night. She shut off the lights to the popcorn machines, and soda fountains, then ran her fingertips along the long red countertop. Some guy had scraped into the red pressboard ‘SLAYER’ with something sharp and her nails glided easily across the deep grooves.

She wiggled her toes in one of the neon high-top sneaker as the music from the sound system wound its way through the vacant rink. She closed her eyes.

“Manic moves and drowsy dreams
Or living in the middle
Between the two extremes”

Synthesizers and drums created a sonic surf that she could swim in. And she lost herself in the rolling tides of the epic tune.

“You’re out of touch
I’m out of time (time)
But I’m out of my head
When you’re not around”

When the sound started to fade, headlights cut their way through the glass of the doorway, and she dropped down, snagging a cluster of keys on her dash to catch her ride home.

OoT 1

You’re out of touch
I’m out of time (time)
But I’m out of my head
When you’re not around.

Quelques mots d’amour

Quelques mots d'amour

Je t´envoie comme un papillon à une étoile
Quelques mots d´amour

~ “Quelques mots d´amour” as performed by Trio Esperanca

I chose this lovely French song performed by a trio from Brazil to embellish today’s post. Once again Wheelerwood Oppewall has taken my photo and once again I have come out looking stunning. I just wanted to speak “some words of love” for one of Mami Jewell’s latest gowns with its glimmering, shimmering textures and tailored bodice. Paired with a gorgeous recent updo from Mirja Mills, this gown glows in Wheeler’s shots, making me into “un papillon à une étoile,” fluttering in the dim light of the Misali sim.

Quelques mots d'amour

Et dans ces boîtes pour danser
Les nuits passent inhabitées
J´écoute les battements de mon cœur me répéter
Qu´aucune musique au monde ne saura remplacer
Quelques mots d´amour

Instead of taking my own photos, I asked a friend of mine, Wheelerwood Oppewall, to take the photos. Wheeler likes to “dabble” with photography in SL, making some lovely photos on location in SL. His style makes the model integral with the surrounding landscape, providing a dramatic narrative for the viewer. We have enjoyed working together and will be doing several other photos through the weeks. I hope you enjoy them and find new venues for your own exploration.

He and I got together to do a series of photos for my blog for fun. This first set was inspired by Zelda Fitzgerald. I chose a dress from Sonatta Morales. I can’t speak highly enough of Sonatta’s work, which fills a void for high end fashionistas in retro dressing and costuming. Sonatta researches and represents her garments through meticulous textures and construction. I am always struck by how well Sonatta employs the pieces of SL to create historically accurate garments. She also uses elaborate patterns redolent of the times from which they were taken. I wish more creators used actual patterns (and not just solid color fabrics) in their work.
