Yo quiero llegar
A esa tierra linda
Que está más allá
Donde hay una sonrisa
A bailar la cumbia
A bailar la cumbia
¡Que quema, que quema!
~ “Cumbia Donde” by Calexico
This great song from Calexico (even better performed live, right, Barely?) is the kick off for this danceable look. I have donned Mea Carnell’s latest necklace for My Attic and dangerously high platforms from Glamistry. My dress is NataPorolo’s offering for Shiny Shabby, a beautifully textured, gorgeously colored silk piece. My gripe with the dress is the sizing. It’s shown here as a “maitreya” fit but it did not fit my Maitreya mesh body by any means, and my body shape is not extreme in any measure. The hips and legs were so off I had to do major surgery to my shape with alphas and sliders to get into the dress and then adjust the top to fill it in. I understand that Maitreya has not released their rigging, but some designers seem to be getting it spot on or close enough. It should not have been included as a “maitreya fit” if it didn’t work along most sizes of shape worn on the Maitreya body.
I used Ensorcelante’s skin for Shiny Shabby as an applier on the Logo Alex mesh head from Maximillion Grant. I will say it looks different to me—the proportions are not the same and I wondering if the creator even tried it on the Logo head and if this was their intent. The lips are full and luscious but the eyes seem off to me in some way—too small or too enclosed. The brows do not extend around the browbone, which is a problem I have found with a lot of Omega skins for the Alex head. The body is, however, gorgeous with a great pair of legs, nicely textured arms and a beautiful tone. I donned one of Mirja Mills’ great braided ‘dos, now in store as it just left an event. I love what she’s doing with braids, using textures to mimic braids on these sinuous long locks.
