Traditions   Leave a comment

 

4754 C. E.

Among the traditions that had held on in show business, the Green Room was one of the most persistent.  Nobody knew for sure why the room set aside as an actors’ lounge was called “the Green Room,” and Ariel Sherman had heard of many rooms that weren’t painted or otherwise decorated in green, but there the name was.  And when they had built the original Land of Fantasy Theatre out of the old pleasure house, Ariel had included a Green Room — though it was a touch more open to other people than just the performers in the revue — and insisted it be “correctly” decorated with green walls.  Though she doubted few theatres had ever gone in for expensive draped green satin wallpaper; but, with the seed credit the cyborgs of Videra had to start with, why not splurge a little?

She did the same thing some ten years later, when The Land of Fantasy added a supper club to the front of the theatre building.  Again, walls hung in green satin, gentle holo-abstracts and other artwork, and comfortable furniture provided relaxation for performers preparing to go on before the club’s patrons.  And, as the club’s first performer — a change from starring in the main revue for so long — there Ariel was, breaking in the room … with a nasty case of stage nerves.  Why in hell do I put myself through this? she wondered in her mind as she dragged hard on her cigarette holder.  Years of performing six nights a week, multiple interview appearances on the ‘screen, even two virt-vids to my credit by now, and I still get stage fright before an opening.

Black Friday Goodies

very quick note today to mention a few of the Black Friday sales.  When I went into Glitter, I found these two dresses at a fantastic price, and for once I persuaded Harper to pose with me instead of me with her.  In addition, Vanity Hair is also half off through Monday, so go and check Tabitha’s stuff out!

(Why are we in gold skin? Harper was dressed as her cyborg singer, Ariel Sherman, while she’s cleaning out some inventory and old outfits, so I changed to Ariel’s daughter, Zana, to go along with her and make things easier for her. Harper will need to tell you one day the full story behind Ariel, her husband Adam, her daughter Zana, and their family friend, Dara Furtano-Fa, all of them cyborgs.)

Spaced Out in PurpleMoon

Spaced Out in PurpleMoon 1

Here I am on one of the companionways of my new starbase, which has since disappeared because I’m trying to make things easier to navigate and to cut prims.  (I don’t know why on the last, since I just bought the property next door to me, and my prim budget has doubled; I still have over 500 left to me.1)  I’ve been doing some retexturing to cut down on the “grunge” factor and just make it “sexier” for me.

Working on the starbase has kept me busy enough that I haven’t paid much attention to fashion of late.  But I did pick up a notecard from PurpleMoon, which made me take a break to run out to Poulet’s store and pick up this new dress, called (appropriately, for a spacegoing person) Leia.  I decided to combine it with the base, and with some other appropriate things for a “spacier” look — not as SF-based as I’d like, but still a beautiful look.
