Impish Medium

The "Impish" dress is another pretty thing from this month's Deco-themed edition at the Genre venue. You may need to tinker with your shape to get this dress to fit properly, so I recommend trying a demo. (I think there was a demo? I don't remember.) In some poses my shoulders went through the straps. I love the lace and detail; in these photos I am using very bright lighting to make the texture more visible.

Bliensen and Maitai's earrings are perfectly period. Lovely little pieces, all the bits in mesh. You can click on the photo to see a larger version with all the details.

Quirksome Closeup

Are you afraid of my hat? Are the Animal Print lapels just too much? Have you seen shoulders this large since the nineteen-eighties? Were you even alive in the nineteen-eighties?

Quirksome Medium

Do you mistrust people who wear black lipstick? Do you despise mismatching primary colors? Do you hate retro and vintage hodgepodge?

It Girl Medium

When the "Genre" Venue opened, I was glad that there would finally be a place to go see a variety of fantasy, sci-fi and film genre categories, and the current incarnation is a joyful collection of Deco period-inspired pieces. Loving it! So here is a sweet little gown by Senzafine. The twenties girls wore long, body-skimming, slimming sheaths, sure to frustrate the girls with curves like me :D but you can go on a slider diet and slip into one of these hot little numbers.

I selected one of Curio's Vintage skins for its sassy bow lips, and added a glam new eye shadow by Kooqla from the Cosmetic Fair. This cosmetic also comes in a bouquet of summer colors. The liquid metallic look is en vogue.

Purpuria Medium

Where there are irresistibly sweet flowers, there will be insects. They just can't help themselves.

AvaGardner Kungler has some lovely jeweled Insects tending her juicy flower garden. Invite some of them to come home with you today! It was so hard to pick just one color, it was all I could do not to buy the fatpack. But I am a sucker for purple.

Obscuro Medium

I love a simple outfit with one outrageous accessory. While I would call Ms. Kungler's shirt simple, its drapery is so sophisticated! I paired it with a set of leather (suede?) pants that were once a store gift over at TokiDoki. I'm glad to finally show these, but sometimes you want to wait for the right outfit. I love the combination of plum and brown.

So here is the one outrageous accessory: a beautiful new headpiece from Finesmith. It also comes in a whole spectrum of brighter colors for spring and summer, but this one called to me.

Miss Matched Medium

I remember when I was a little kid, the way I would feel an instant attraction to certain things. I was unafraid to follow my magpie heart, so I could walk around in rainbow socks and a ballet tutu, with my pockets stuffed full of pebbles for my rock collection, an off-center ponytail tied with a couple of those bright hair-ties made of yarn. I shoved those plastic jewels on my fingers and pilfered my grandmother's fuchsia lipstick. I never worried once about whether anything matched or how I looked to anyone else.

I miss that. As much as I love a carefully chosen outfit, I have been feeling some restlessness and dissatisfaction in my Second Life, I think because I have not been feeding myself with enough creativity. As much positive feedback as I get from "normal" outfits, I think it's time I put more whimsy back in the mix. I need more whimsy. In both lives.
