Whatever Is Whatever

Whatever Is Whatever

Thank you, Breezy Luik, for the title! Quite apropos!

Whatever Is Whatever

It’s one of those weeks. Dashing back and forth, here and there. Half the time I don’t know if I am coming or going. The darling little bicycle carts Trace Osterham made for Arcade are a perfect metaphor for what’s going on with me. One way, Italian ice; the other, cotton candy. Wear it and ride off!

What else do you expect at the beginning of the summer? Flowers need to be planted (the windowboxes are in, by the way), all the classes have to be scheduled, a quick family trip planned, and SL12B is about to open! It’s easy to get around when you’re wearing something cute like this dress from Novery Lorakeet that she has at Shiny Shabby. With Bax Coen’s great little booties, now released in neutrals, it’s a lovely look, especially accessorized with Grazioso Alekseev’s gorgeous glasses (all prims—omg!) and one of Monica Outlander’s hair accessories for the Arcade.

Whatever Is Whatever

I am wearing one of the LeLutka mesh heads with an applier from Sawsan Secretspy, who has seen fit to bring her artistry to the various faces of LeLutka. With a great hud that offers several eye makeup and lipstick options, the head works perfectly with Sawsan’s skin for the Maitreya body. A cute easy little ponytail from Ikira Frimon for Shiny Shabby and I am ready to go!

The Timekeeper

The Timekeeper

I must govern the clock, not be governed by it. ~ Golda Meir

The Timekeeper

For this “character,” I imagined a woman who keeps time, who controls time for a universe. To control the time would be the most powerful person and so she is stately and almost otherworldly. I start with a dress from Juno Mantel that she offered as a gacha in the Fantasy Gacha Fair (which is closed now—sorry). I hit the rare on both the gown and the ruff and just had to show it because I am so impressed with her work. Juno does fantasy with lush fabrics—satins and velvets—on mesh, presumably her own because I have not see anything quite like this anywhere else.

Graizioso Alekseev’s eyepiece is unique and defines this Timekeeper. Included in the eyepiece are separate scripts for the large eyepiece and the dangling watch which allow you to track the time in two different time zones (in this case, CST where I am and Japan, where Grazioso is). The tiny detail is amazing.

I chose Circe Ishtari’s close-cut bob in a red tone. Circe has been making a lot of hair as of late and she includes a color change script in the hair (without a HUD) to allow for texture changes. From “natural” to “fantastic,” she has a variety of colors. Rocketta Haven offers this gorgeous skin, very clearly her style with the full lips, the artistic eyes with a smudged, time-stamped eye and the winged brows. Audrey Lamede offered these eyes as a sampler to her group members. With eensy irises, they make this Timekeeper’s glow with premonition.
