No, not the Scarlet Pimpernel... think Kinks, instead.
I have been fiddling about with potential outfits for an Ashraya Project photoshoot, as I mentioned a couple of posts back.... This fashion thing is hard work, really, isn't it? I thought the only effort involved would be in opening the boxes and deciding what to wear, but deciding what goes with what to construct the look we want for a shot (Tali is doing the photography. I pose, she goes off into RL and works her digital alchemy via PhotoShop, and eventually I see the results. Which, so far, are distinctly interesting. But I digress) is not as easy as it sounds.
I suppose, really, this is bleed-through from RL... I do not get to be glamorous in RL! And, since SL-me mostly looks good without effort, I tend to coast along on that... so, working out exactly how to fit together makeup and hair and clothing for the best effect, rather than just a good-enough effect, is more of a challenge than I expected.
Still, I progress, I think. And at least my evil hunting habit is paying off, in that I know lots of places where I can get gear I want, if I don't have it. Last night involved a trip out to Gugu Dada for specialist lipstick. In RL, I don't even wear lipstick, not more than once in a blue moon, anyway. Normally I just smack myself in the mouth instead.
So... At the very least, some interesting photos are on the cards. (Evening gown from Azul, accessorized with an Alruneia Sentry cyber-fantasy helmet and visor, anyone?)
