Alright, I have a feeling my thoughts may be a bit all over the place in my blog here, but eh…I like random so here goes.
I have been wearing this ensemble in Second Life for days because I have been meaning to blog it. The little dress reminded me of something Alicia Silverstone wore in the movie Clueless, and since it is one of those movies on my list of those that I never get tired of…I had to have it. It was designed by Cracked Mirror for the November FaMeshed.
The hair, also from FaMeshed and made by Wasabi Pills, was really right on the money with the overall look. I love the texture change headband. It added to that preppy type look. What is not so preppy is the fishnets from Erratic, and the shiny black boots from Gos. I guess…this is more like preppy/dom?
I totally had to stop mid post to fix the lines I missed in the above image. I apparently wasn’t being observant in Photoshop…oops. Can’t LL do something to eliminate that glitch by now? Ugh. Anyway, I digress…
One thing I really wanted to mention in this post was about an upcoming event called Unhinged. I haven’t blogged an event for quite sometime, and to be honest, the logo was what initially attracted my attention. There is a really cool skull on it. It made me curious and upon reading the event info, I signed up for the blogger list last minute. If I would have known earlier, I would have tried making something for it. It says it is a gatcha festival for the head of Eku Zhong, the talented creator behind the wonderful pieces at Culprit.
For the head of Eku Zhong? Yes. That is right. It sounds strange to put it in those terms, but that is what it says on the event blog. Without getting too medical jargon-y here, it is a benefit to help assist with costs for a surgical implant to structurally reinforce a part of her skull that has become fragile. Please see the Unhinged blog for the full story, as I cannot do it justice here. The event is still looking for entertainment and people who would like to be involved, so you can check the blog out for that information as well.
I really love to see the beauty of humanity when SL residents come together to aid one person because the community cares or admires that person. It is nice to know that in a virtual world, we can connect and help others–albeit it may only be in a small way.
