Does anyone out there know the difference between a Sousaphone and a Tuba? Sorry, but I was every other kind of geek, but not a band geek. In any event, I am ready for the Independence Day parade on Thursday. Fortunately my instrument is scripted to play by itself, since I never had any lessons. When I spotted the skateboard I thought it must be better than walking in the 104 degree heat predicted for July Fourth. Sweet!
I put together some red and blue out of pieces just released by LIV-Glam. I love that many of their inexpensive mesh garments come with texture change HUDs that let you pick from tons of colors. I immediately liked this jacket that drapes over your shoulders as if placed there by a considerate male companion. The pants have a lovely parade stripe made of metal studs.
For fun I added the big collar from Coco's Bow shirt. I wanted to mention that she will soon be retiring many of her older sculpted pieces, and some real classic favorites that still wear very well are on sale for L$50 to 100. An opportunity you shouldn't miss!
