Twiggy

Lauded for being an icon of the 60s, Twiggy was one of the first supermodels. Naturally thin (the wiki about her says she was 5’6” and 91 pounds), she had a beautiful face with big eyes and the gawky appearance of an adolescent.

Twiggy

I show my version of Twiggy in a retired dress from Cora Lu. With it’s empire waistline and ballooning skirt, it is one the few in SL that so well exemplifies this retro shape. What makes the dress even better are the exaggerated roses at the shoulder and great textured red tights.

Twiggy

I constructed the whole look around a skin from Julliette Westerburg, which is being featured at the Designers United 19. With its dark heavy makeup and painted on eyelashes (similar to Twiggy’s famous make up), I thought it was a perfect match. I modified my shape quite radically (of course) to create this look—making my eyes much larger, pushing them together, changing the shape of the head and the nose, and making my eyes quite a bit larger. And of course, I made the body very thin and without breasts or hips (though you can’t see it under the dress).

Brokeded

My desktop computer is brokeded. No idea what’s wrong. It’s safely nestled among other sick and brokeded ‘puters at the Computer Gallery, awaiting the gentle hands of a computer surgeon. Meanwhile I am using the laptop I first purchased so I could view Windlight in all its glory. Man, this thing is slow!

Metamorphosis

I was able to sneak into the Designers United 19 last night before I decided (badly) to shut down my computer. My wonderful partner, Callie, was participating and she made this beautiful little dress for it. First let me point out the seamless seams. Betcha can’t tell where the front ends and the back begins. Then there is the pretty prim work Callie has put on the hem and chest and then round the arms. I have worn all the layers on this dress (for propriety’s sake), but you can wear them one at a time and have a sheerer, sexier look.

Metamorphosis

I opted to show the dress on a beautiful darker skin from sanalyildiz Yalin to highlight the dress’ lightness. Sanalyildiz renders a dark skin more beautifully than most skin makers—the color is not ashy or orange, and the features are bold and gorgeous. Little gold slingbacks from Cerberus Noel and a sexy hair from Truth Hawks complete the look.
