It Used To Matter

Today’s photos were taken at Virtual Decay (much more attractively photographed by Honour McMillan here).  It’s a grungy urban decay themed sim built around the Virtual Decay store.

This outfit’s really about these Suicidal Unborn shorts.  I love the texture and I picked this top to show off the high waist.  They line up pretty nicely.

Speaking of this top, I love the idea but not so much the execution.  It tends to stick out in weird ways in some poses but more annoyingly I can’t get an alpha texture to match it.  The same bit of me will be sticking through it in one pose and exposed in another so you can’t win whether you mask it or not.

I still wear it though because I like it but if you can’t stand that kind of thing it’s probably a no-go.

Looking pensive in an alley.

A lot of the textures around here look good at a distance but are pretty blurry up close.  Not sure if that was a problem with my computer not loading textures properly or if they’re just like that.  Wow I’m really complainy today aren’t I?

These ankle boots are a group gift from Lethal Couture.  I like their distinctive style and for 0L there’s no reason NOT to have them.

These boots aren’t made for walking, though.

Dark Fairytale

Half the reason for this blog is an excuse to get out all the old outfits I never found a reason to wear and do something fun with them.  This dress is a good example of that.  What does it take to get asked to a vampire ball around here, anyway?

Disclaimer: Unfortunately my laptop’s dying and I can’t even turn on basic shaders so consider yourself warned.

I tried doing this as a series of framed portraits but it wasn’t working for me

I almost never do gowns (this was the only one I own) but I love the gothic fairytale look.  One day I’ll wrangle up some stained glass slippers and a guy with a black princely suit and do a gothic Cinderella photoshoot.  Or I’ll hire someone else to do it so the photos come out good.

I took more photos, too, so I’m damn well going to use them:

Cyber Race Queen

Or, Creative Post Title Queen.

I thought I’d try blogging the Cyber Race Queen outfit from Bare Rose because

a) it’s cute; and
b) it’s what I was wearing at the time

and c) you should always be ready for rain

The outfit also came in pink and red with the matching parasols and headsets.  B@R stuff always includes  great accessories .  It’s a shame they’re all no-copy so I’m too scared to tweak them for other outfits.

I thought that skirt sculpt hadn’t loaded properly but it turns out it just looks a bit broken from some angles.  I never really noticed it till I did this photo though.

I took the photos at the Cyber-TECH store, it has an approriate sci-fi motor show look and their mesh flying cars are beautiful.  Way too expensive for me, but beautiful.

Outfit: Bare Rose – Cyber Race Queen BlueGureen
Eyeliner: BOOM – Scissor me Timbers
Hair: TRUTH – Mini (snow, tinted to match my outfit)
Skin: Belleza – Aiko medium group gift
