Trying To Look All Grown Up

I feel like I'm getting ready for prom...

I feel like I’m getting ready for prom…

WHAT I’M WEARING: It’s funny how my look sometimes evolves with a mind of its own.  When I started getting dressed, I was back in what I think of as my ‘default look’, a teen avatar set from Kids5B.  I kept the Gigi teen shape, and the dark brown knotted hair from that set, but decided to try a teen skin from Fierce Kiddy Crew, the age play label for Fierce Designs.  I’m sure no one in First Life has ever been as excited about getting zits as I was, but a skin with zits and braces just struck me as really funny.  Next I added the base of the outfit, the new Cora dress from *PB Designs* and the new simple mesh black boots, likewise.  The combination of a cute mini-dress and a younger skin than I normally wear just made the following accessories seem right: some lipstick (Blue Ice creme lipstick from [DUMB BLOND]), nail polish (gloves layer from RONJAS), dangly earrings (*Jstyle freebie), black choker (no clue anymore where I got this), taoist armbands (likewise clueless), chantilly lace stockings (Symmetry), my lip and nose rings, and (not that you can see it when I face the camera) an elaborate cross tattoo undershirt layer (Salvation from PROZAK).

WHERE I’M AT: Since I’m also a silent model, I came down to the *PB Designs* store so that folks could see me. (Taxi!) I spent an hour or two modeling and keeping a friend up past her bed time, and then decided to run and slap some of my favorite MM boards… At Grumble, Grumble there is a subway station with 15 Mini-mania boards and 15 lucky chairs; LC’s World of Fashion is a dangerous place for me to visit, with at least a dozen Midnight Mania boards, at least three Lucky Boards, at least two Mini-Mania boards, lots of freebies and dollarbies, all scattered so you have to look through a bunch of gorgeous full price merchandise to find them; Fierce Designs has a lucky ‘department’ with 4 lucky chairs, 4 Midnight Mania boards, and 9 Mini-mania boards; UK Couture has 7 lucky chairs as well as 4 lucky boards that offer prizes for 1L$ and a photo-studio set for group members; WoW Skins has two Midnight Mania boards and 10 lucky boards, although you need to be a member of a 250L$ group to use them.  (WoW skins are good stuff and kind of pricy- the group membership will pay for itself pretty quickly in quality freebies, but you should be warned.)

So sexy, I'm on fire!

WHAT’S ON MY MIND: The friend I was chatting with past her bedtime was Zee.  I was very sad, because my viewer never fully rezzed her in so I could steal a picture of the two of us together.  So instead, I will mention she was fretting a bit over the crediting details of her latest blog post (not worrying in the sense of anxious, just in the sense of making sure everything was just-so and correct.)  You should take a look, and then let her know she did a really great job.

Also, I couldn’t resist using the photo studio at UK Couture.  First off, it’s a cool toy.  (I still want one for my apartment!) Second, it obviously isn’t getting enough use… I was a bad photographer the last time I used it, for a picture I posted a week ago, because I apparently forgot to turn off the smoke and particle emitters.  I know I forgot to turn them off, because they were still going a week later… So this time I left the fire burning just to see if its still on when I come back.  (It occurs to me replacing the shop with a sim of burnt-out shell and accusing me of arson would be a cruel prank… maybe I should just pop back and turn that off now…)
