I don’t really no where today’s article came from. Invariably it starts off with me trying to make an outfit. I thought I would do some dancing tonight, but half-way through changing, I decided to go check out new releases. So I put on the fishnets and darkened my makeup. That’s when the Billy Idol song started looping in my head. So now I want to talk about some of the new stuff I have gotten recently.
This pose is free from Olive Juice at the Pose Fair on Shisei. The skin is Laqroki’s newest creation, Elena. I have to be honest and say that though this skin is impressive, I did notice one flaw and that is that while the body has the typical Laq pigment, the face has a lot less yellow in it which makes face and body subtly mismatched. Of course this is no issue considering I bought all ten makeups for under $2000L. It’s still stunning!

I have had dreams in which I can fly all my life. I just lift off the ground and soar like a bird. However, the closest any of us mortals can get to that ultimate feeling of freedom and wonder is to use an airplane. In one, someone can look out their window and behold the endless horizons around them. The fluffy, white clouds floating below them. Not even the birds reach you… awww, I love to fly.
Another place on my travels around Second Life is Abbott’s Aerodrome. This airfield provides hours of fun with sky diving and demo planes, balloons, helicopters, etc. Very realistic sights and sounds, not too mention six sims of open space, provide for a very unique experience. I am a girl who lords quality, and I am very impressed by everything Cubey Terra has created. To prepare for such aeronautical gallivanting, I planned an outfit that is both trendy yet vintage; couture yet relevant. I want to look good flying off of the runway by taking ideas from the other runway, 😉 .
This is a couture costume itching to have wind rush through it. I feel like one of the early female combat pilots who trained during World War II. They are some of the unsung heroes of American history that are just starting to get the recognition they deserve. My influence was Amelia Earhart, if you can’t already tell. From my hair to my boots, I found inspiration for this ensemble from the highest sources in fashion. Now I’m ready for takeoff.
Aeronautical sophistication achieved with…
… LeLutka‘s pale Moscow skin…
… Curio‘s Betty Boop in red. Amelia Earhart’s hair was often cropped, but it had a natural curl to it that if it were longer, I have no doubt that Betty Boop would have been out of luck claiming this symbolic style, heehee…
… Armidi Gisaci‘s Lifestyle Aviators in light silver doesn’t need an explanation. The name of the style and of where you can get them tells you what to use them for and how fabulous you’re going to look doing it..
… Muism‘s leather Bomber jacket in brown. Same deal, different purveyor…
… an ivory scarf from Aoharu. It was important in the early days of aviation to keep warm. That required bulky scarves, thick gloves, and padded hats. Today’s aircraft come equipped with heating, but a thin scarf is a small detail that makes major impact when finishing an outfit…
… Zaara‘s Isis blouse in white. A button down with a simple collar would have been just what Amelia Earhart would have wanted. The comfortable cotton is what keeps any pilot comfortable on transatlantic trips…
… Last Call‘s breeches. The store might have closed over a year and a half ago, but nobody did work clothes like LC. Their breeches and other riding outfits are primary pieces in my wardrobe to this day…
… and finally J‘s new long boots in sand. The new thing for designers is to just make the boot all one prim and hide all the rest with invisiprims. It creates quite a stunning and unified appearance.
I got the chance to experience Sascha Frangilli of Sascha’s Designs’ newest creation, Malicious, and I must say, that such a name for this dress is apropos. Wearing this is malicious… to other people who cannot come close to competing, 🙂
Not only is it gorgeous, and classy, and opulent, it is extremely versatile. With no less than ten color variations, two tops, three chest attachments and six different skirts (with available train), there is little chance of two people going to a party in the same outfit. The beading is exquisite and the colored silk is iridescent and dynamic. This is definitely one of the times were I felt like I was over the top and it felt great.
And the response has been phenomenal. I turn quite a lot of heads and elicit praise every time I have donned one of the versions and strutted it.
With just one purchase, someone can satisfy their formal needs for several occasions. In fact, I love all the oppurtunities I have with this gown so much, that I have gone beyond one dress and mix-n-matched different hues. For my Christmas greeting cards this year, I’ll definitely be putting some of the excelent complementary draping Sascha has provided to theme the green or red dress. Truly, the quality and detail put into this gown will flatter any polished fashionista and needs to be seriously considered the next time they need to be seen.
