SLCC is over but I didn’t miss it all. I heard from many friends who are in Boston and got to see Philip’s speech (from the horse’s mouth rather than through everyone’s analysis). I even got to do a presentation, though this time it was from THIS side of the screen rather than from the dias as last year.
I feel a bit better about SL after hearing Philip speak. I think I needed to know they were actually setting down a list of priorities and goals for those priorities. Some people are not going to be happy, but as the old adage goes, you can’t make everyone happy all the time. I feel pretty good about things just knowing something is being done, so I “feel good.”
That being said, have you been to Pixel Dolls lately? Pixel Dolls was one of my first indulgences in SL, and it proves the test of time. I got this dress yesterday and love it. Dolce Blackflag reuses and reconsiders her beautifully drawn system pieces in different combinations and with a variety of prims. Her pieces are sexy and Victorian all at once with an abundance of romantic laces, brocades, pearls and buttons. Whereas true Victorian would have the body cinched and covered, Dolce shows off the sexiness of skin and femininity with her fashions. In this dress, she combines a beautifully rendered system piece with black pearls that hold the top barely shut. Lacy sleeve prims are echoed in the skirt, netting dripping down in an almost ragged fashion. It’s much like a RL fashion collection–she has a definite vision and voice in her work and she uses a set of motifs and styles throughout her work.
I wear with the dress leggings from LeeZu Baxter, who delights us with the same sense of sexiness and fashion. These burlesque tights include chains around the knees (!) and garters that stretch from the thigh to the calf. Boots from Eshi Otawara complete the outfit—one of her own sculpties. She’s selling colored versions of these at the Shoe Fair for an unbeatable price. Can you beat a boot with such a pretty flower and such a whimsical (and structurally unsound) heel? I’d kill myself wearing these in RL but in SL? No problem! It’s all good ;)
Love forever love is free
Let’s turn forever you and me
