Leggings as Pants

or; The Case of Shut Up They’re Comfortable.

This was a lazy photo shoot – I was just landmark hopping to pass time when I thought “hey, I should take some photos of my narcssistic gorgeous self”.  I’m sporting the two classiest trends around: a sheer top and leggings as pants.

This is my “design concept” top.  It’s made from a Meli Imako mesh that I talked about here.  I’m getting a real appreciation for buying full perm.  It’s fun to customise.

The leggings are mesh from HOC Industries and come with a colour-change HUD.

Photos are taken in one of the show homes at Scarlet Creative.  I sometimes poke around there because the houses are all beautiful if a bit empty.

I go into show homes on weekends and drink coffee. What about it?

I stuck this photo on when I realised none of the others showed off the cute cat ear headband well.  It’s from Statement and I’m buying it in all the colours.

High and Waisted

I have a bit of a thing for high waists and I pretty much fell in love with this dress from Villena as soon as I saw it:

You buy different skirt colours and it comes with a colour change HUD for the top.

UPDATE: You can now buy the skirt separately as well if you want.  Which I do.

Neurohat

Today’s outfit is brought to you by this demo cap from Neurolab.  It’s a $1 demo but it’s also perfectly wearable – you just pay for hats with different designs on them.  Maybe it’s just because I’m cheap but I like that idea.  It also has great resizing and stretching scripts in it that made it surprisingly easy to fit over my unmoddable mesh hair.  Admittedly though this is some of the flatter hair I have and the hat’s still huge.

These are also the new and improved UBU High-Tops.  They look just like the old ones I own but now they’ve got improved scripts and – the reason I got them – you can now remove the scripts, so I don’t feel bad wearing them to busy places any more.

Photos were taken at NN City, much better photographed by Melusina Parkin on Flickr.

So I Went to R.icielli

…and all I got was this t-shirt.  And this blazer.  And shorts.  And shoes.  And eyeliner.

Photos taken at Glam Affair

It turns out R.icielli has a lot of great stuff available for 10L or 15L from various little hunts they’ve had.  Although it was hard figuring out what half of it was since a lot of things didn’t seem to be for sale anywhere. Fortunately there are image guides posted everywhere.

R.icielli use the standard avatar sizes so I don’t normally wear their dresses or bottoms since the standard hips and bums are huge on me (I look pretty comical from behind in these shorts) but I like their designs and for 15L I’ll live with it.  Also I just can’t say no to a good blazer.

I wish the t-shirt was optional though, for better mix-and-matching

Maid for This

I’m just going to say it: I love the maid look.  It’s cute as hell and if you look at my other posts you’ll see I have a thing for black and white clothes.  I don’t mean the french-maid-halloween-costume look, I mean the more Japanesey brand of maid:

Maid Air? Flying Maids?  Whatever, I look good in aviators.  Helicopter from Apolon Motors.

I don’t know if there’s a better term for the look, I just know I love this dress from Edelweiss.  Even if you don’t want a maid dress you should go there to see the amazing sim.

I loved the idea of getting photos of me doing all kinds of extreme and badass things in my maid dress but maybe surfing maid, mountain climbing maid and open heart surgery maid will have to come along when I find the time.

Maid service, here to take out the trash.

OK one more, to show off the big bow on the back:

Because what self respecting maid can’t fix the engine on her own Italian sports car?

This one’s taken at my place. Yeah we have a pool.

Future Tense

Today’s photos were taken at Insilico.  Insilico is a beautifully detailed and atmospheric sci fi city spread over several sims.  Great place to explore if your computer can run it smoothly.

pants are SO 20th century

I don’t know if I really pulled off the look I was going for.  The only approriately sci fi thing I own is this pair of cyber eyes from Neurolab.  They glow, the irises rotate and you can change the colours.  Here I am blending in with the neon signs:

Click for a bigger version so you can see the eyes better

I don’t know if the night shots worked out either.  I thought they captured the feel better and definitely show off the eyes better but maybe I needed a middle ground.

…and here’s the movie poster.  See take two because I couldn’t pick one
