Rosie doll is dead

I visited Genre, which focuses on the Lolita theme this month. I was mainly attracted because I had seen that Bilo had produced a pretty tea gown for it, but I did pick up a couple of other things as well, namely the ornate shoes and the corkscrew curl hair. I tried a few backgrounds, and then I remembered the posing box I got from MuiMin and I had some fun posing in that. There is a glass door that you can have open or closed, and the more soft focus picture is taken with the door closed. As you can see, I couldn’t decide which hair to wear with the outfit.

bandanas 1 copy

It’s become a tradition to have a bandana-wearing day at the Hair Fair, to show special support of the Wigs For Kids charity. This year Sasy Scarborough supplied a bandana kit for people to get creative with, and there is a wonderful selection of bandanas, all at 50 Linden, all of which goes to the charity. These were some of my favourites.

The Gingko patterned bandanas by Whimsy Winx are in a gorgeous texture, and I have shown a back view (top left, above) because I love the way the pattern works with the folds. That was probably my favourite of the unadorned bandanas, but there are lots of other nice ones and I’ve shown Discord Designs’ vintage lepidoptera (bottom left, above).  Two of the novelty bandanas that I particularly liked were the wolf bandana (there are other animals too) and the Book worm bandana, both by Mel Vanbeeck (top right, above).

Finally, I couldn’t resist Anya Ohmai’s beaded bandana (below left) and Zaara’s jeweled bandanas: the back view of the black one is above, and the white one is below right. They are elegant enough for evening wear. The Bandana booth is at  http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Hair%20Fair%202/212/148/22

New kimono

There are some beautiful kimono and yukata being designed in mesh, and this one is new from Aso! at the Chapter Four event. The pattern is delicate and lovely, in deep indigo and parchment. I photographed it on my own land (where there is a corner of perpetual cherry blossom) and in Gallery Sayopiyo on the Kick sim. This exhibit (which has parts of the “picture” flicking on and off) reminded me of painting on black velvet.

American dream

I hadn’t meant to dress up for the 4th July, as I’m not American, but I thought this dress (one Linden on marketplace or free instore) was nicer than most of the outfits I’d seen, and I couldn’t resist the free 4th July shoes from Duh! (on Marketplace or instore). The location is Flux.
