Denim To the People!

“Jeans represent democracy in fashion.” — Giorgio Armani

COCO Uber 1

I think I’d stretch that quote to denim overall.  (“No, not overalls, ya nimrod; go get your ears flushed.”)

Let’s get back on topic here; turn the page….

Berry’s Monday Memes — Avatar Transformation

Written en route to Orlando, Florida:

Something different 2

It’s Meme Time again!!!

From Strawberry Singh, on March 2 — “Transform your avatar completely so that even your friends wouldn’t recognize you.”

For me, and my love of alien looks, this wasn’t difficult at all, at least in the gross sense.  I pulled out one of the shapes I don’t often wear, which I use for my character of Keiko in my stories, and proceeded to transform her from the norm to something more…exotic.  I did try to use mostly recent items, so you’ll see these (if still available) at some of the current events.  I’m sorry, but I’ve quite forgotten which ones to go to; but contacting the creators should help.

Long Night

Whew!  It was a long night, but a good one.  I think I’ll just crash right here in front of the fireplace, if you don’t mind….

The Advantages of Floating in the Middle of the Sea

Prism Carolina 1

…The advantages go on and on
In the middle of the sea.
As the centuries have come, they’ve gone
In the middle of the sea.
Days arise to be replaced,
Lines are drawn and lines erased.
Life and death are but verses in a poem.
Out there blood flows …
Who knows?…

The lyrics, from Stephen Sondheim’s Pacific Overtures, tell of how Japan was in the years before Commodore Matthew Perry broke the ban against foreigners and trade with other countries in 1853. His “four black dragons” — American steam-powered warships — arrived in a land very much like the world you find in Taka no Sakura, a build of a classic Japanese village from the feudal period. Other things seem to float at times — like a beautiful strapless dress. Prism offers us the new Carolina dress, a lovely strapless cocktail gown in three different colors, with rich patterning on the overskirt and bustier, and a jewel-buckle belt.

…Here we paint screens,
Plant the rice,
Arrange the flowers,
View the moon,
Exchange the gifts,
Plant the rice,
Arrange tomorrow like today to float,…

Simplicity seems to be called for here, and so I choose one of the simpler sets of jewelry from Lazuri — still chunky and substantial, but much less heavy than other of her collections.  It is HUD driven, like most of her pieces; each one can be controlled individually, or you can click on the necklace to change the metal and major gems on all pieces simultaneously.

…Slide the screens,
Exchange the poems,
Stir the tea,
Exchange the bows,
Plant the rice,
Arrange tomorrow to be like today,
To float….

The hair is from sYs, and is a lovely progressive style, while the makeup and nail polish goes along with the blue dress and gold jewelry.

E is for — Ebony

E is for Ebony 1

Ebony is the theme for today’s paw through my inventory; and the ebony here is represented by almost everything I’m wearing.  The hair is the item that began this plunge, an old, elaborate updo from Tukinowaguma.  Tuki hasn’t released any new styles in a very long time, but the store is still in existence, if much reduced in size from what it was at the apex of their success.  (I wonder if it was an inability to cope with the change to mesh that did them in?  Some of their longer styles could benefit from a mesh treatment, so they don’t get lost in your shoulders.)

E is for Ebony 2

The gown is also vintage, a nicely poufy piece from Sascha Frangilli; and the suite of onyx jewels come from EarthStones.  Everything is listed below.
