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.

Making a Statement

So I recently brought the full perm back hem tank top kit from Meli Imako.  I love having full perm stuff that I can customise and this top is just like a big white canvas to write on:

For example

It actually clips through my shoulders a bit but I decided I’m happier with that than the  larger sizes that don’t look like they fit me right.  Best worn with your hair down I suppose.

As you can see I’m getting my money’s worth

I have more but none of the photos came out right and I can’t be bothered re-taking them right now so I guess stay tuned for Making a Statement 2: Top in the City.  Or something.

Photos taken at Glam Affair.

Going Ombre

…with colour-tipped hair from a Burley Magnate (members only) hair pack:

Black tips with a black top.  Way to think this through.

It comes with tips in ten different colours, so naturally I chose the least colourful one 😛

The shoes are my old Hi Tops from Urban Bomb Unit but to be honest I’m on the look out for some new less scripty ones so sims don’t complain as much.

Also my hair’s clipping into everything in this shot.  It turns out that happens when I look left.

This is a sheer top from Chemistry over a tube top.  It comes in different lengths and with optional opaque stripes (for people who don’t own boob tubes).

what, you don’t colour your eyes to match your outfit?

These are mesh eyes from Damien Fate. Although at this distance they don’t look that special the iris textures are pretty nice up close, and the crazy amount of customising you can do makes them great value for money.

The photos were taken in another  Scarlet Creative house.

Renovations

We’re just moving in to a new skybox so I’ve been busy renovating and decorating, which inspired this weekend’s look:

The painting animation is a bit less stiff looking when it’s moving.

The painting supplies are from RC Cluster, including the paint on the wall.  You can change the colour with a menu.

I know the photography’s getting a little sloppy but hey I had a house to paint 😛

I know a lot of people find the sheer top and bra look trashy and that’s fair enough but I think it can look good, add some sexy or cute or even casual to an outfit.

There’s no look that can’t be improved with a little bow.  This bra’s actually sheer but I’m wearing it on multiple layers to make it decent.

I might have forgotten to take off my eye shadow

I was going to talk about how I have to wear the headphones like this because they’re no mod and too small to fit on my head but it looks like the store’s closed so I guess it doesn’t matter now.

LOVE

Not much to say today, just an outfit:

My proportions look weird here because I’m actually leaning forward.  Or that’s my excuse anyway.

The leggings are actually part of a full catsuit from POC, and the top is part of a full perm set from Meli Imako.

I think this is going to become my “too lazy to find a photo spot” wall

I don’t normally do blonde, but I’m loving the way this hair (Cheryl from Lelutka) sits around my face.  I might have to see what their black textures are like.

Mesh is So Mainstream

So I’m all alternative (read: poor) and wearing no mesh again today:

also, I can't breathe in this

I wear all this makeup so you know I don’t care what you think

I have a bit of a thing for corsets and this one from KaS is probably my favourite, despite the fact that I find it impossible to fit.   It’s got a simple design with great little details (like all the padlocks) and is scripted to change tightness, recolour and stop you from bending in it.  I’m just kind of standing there in these shots because I couldn’t find a sit pose that looked natural in it.

this is me standing respectfully in front of the cross

My whole idea for this outfit had been to pair the corset with a mesh maxi skirt from Jane for a more goth, less punk type look but the skirt cut in to the corset so it didn’t work.   So I ended up going the other way entirely.

I love this mini skirt from Blow-Up.  It’s tiny, like coordinate-your-undies-with-your-outfit tiny but the quality and the details are awesome.  Plus I think it’s cute.

this blue eyeshadow's a bit much, even for me

tell me more!
