“If you do not have the courage to be yourself, what will you be?”― The Silver Elves
We all find a way to find an alternative personality in our special world of SL. Some people choose to be elves. It’s never been my dream personally (I am always going for this wealthy, childless, single woman fantasy in SL myself), but I needed to find the elf in myself so I could show off the awesome new mesh ears that Maximillion Grant is featuring at the Mesh Body Addicts Fair. What is so cool about these ears is that they are expressive—just like his mesh heads. So when you smile, the ears smile with you. When you frown, they go down. You become more than just an elf—you’re a feeling elf. Max told me that he is working on offering the opportunity for creators to put earrings on the ears but wanted to get these out for the Mesh Body Addicts Fair. Skin appliers are also being developed (I think I saw Lumae has come out with some already.) And you don’t have to just wear them with the Logo heads—they can be used with expression with other heads or your system head!
I did my best to dress up as the sort of elf I probably would be—pretty casual. With Tricky Boucher’s reconfigured Freya body, I was able to wear this darling shorts and top outfit from Giz Seorn that she is featuring at Shiny Shabby. It comes with an optional necklace and has a great summer vibe. I am not sure but I figure elven girls can have tattoos, so I used Lanna Cobalt’s pretty tat from the Mesh Body Addicts Fair to decorate my shoulders and wore lovely blossom earrings AvaGardner Kungler is featuring for The Crossroads Event. My skin applier, from Inka Mexicola, is also featured at the Crossroads Event and includes a nice set of lipsticks as an option. It comes with several brow options and looks fabulous on the Sadie head. I am so glad lonlysoule decided to include Omega appliers with her latest eyes for AnyBody. I hate having to mess with mesh eyes when the Logo head takes Omega appliers so easily. Finally, MissAllSunday Lemon made a darling, ear-revealing hair for Chapter Four. With bangs and two cute braids tied in their own bow, it’s a perfect elven ‘do.
