You Can Pull Off Anything If You Look Confident Enough

More Meli Imako goodness: the full perm blazer and t-shirt.  I changed the texture to make the tshirt transparent so it’s just a blazer.  Unfortunately because of alpha clashing bugs it gives me trouble with hair or sheer tops that overlap the invisible tshirt.

Remember where we parked

Photos were taken at Virtual Decay (the same location as my last walking-in-high-waisted-denim-shorts post coincidentally).

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.

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?

A closeup of  the studs on the back of the ankle boots.

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.

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.

Bite Me

Today’s look was inspired by this mesh top from Apple May:

look at me with my traditional standing-in-front-of-a-wall photo style lately

Now my boobs are staring at YOU.  How does it feel?

The top was  from the Mesh Around hunt.  I’ve been pretty slow getting on the mesh bandwagon, mostly because I’m stubborn about always having to change my shape to fit the clothes.  Also I love to layer and it’s hard to chuck a jacket or vest or something over a mesh top.

This top keeps clipping around my shoulders. I’m not sure what I’d have to adjust to fix that though.

I’m starting to feel pretty unfashionable though turning up somewhere in my old-fashioned clothes layers and seeing everyone else meshed up from head to toe.

why did this one come out with such rough edges?
