My RL birthday is soon approaching, and I am in RL denial. I would like to believe I am ageless and timeless, dancing through life with nary a wrinkle or stretch mark or gray hair. What’s so wonderful about SL is that I can do that!
And I can do it wearing this gorgeous dress from Kotobuki Jewell, a beautiful reminder that spring will someday return. (It’s been rainy and gray and cold.) Kotobuki’s textures are, as always, vibrant and shining. She has somehow mastered the skill of making her materials look expensive and satiny. Her shadow work is impeccable and her seams are top notch.
Additionally, Kotobuki knows how to build a versatile outfit, in this case a dress that is built from the ground up. First you have a very pretty one-piece swimsuit, then the top with a wrap skirt…
Then a dress with long prims reaching to the ground.
And finally the beautiful flounced skirt prim seen in the first photo. It can be worn with or without the long skirt prims. I chose to wear without.
I have paired the dress with a glowing skin from Tuli Asturias, complete with spring green eyeshadow. My hair is a beauty by Kavar Cleanslate, complete with the aforementioned daisies and a vibrant *youthful* messiness. The hairband has a color change script, so it’s also versatile.
