24-09-17 shin akaba playing the game

The title reflects the fact that I’ve put together an outfit that ISN’T from the latest events. In fact the trousers (system layer) are about 9 years old (showing that there WAS some good texturing already in 2008). The look came about because I wandered into the Cute Or Die mainstore and saw this schoolgirl-ish outfit. It’s a bit short for me, but only adding pants made it looked unbalanced. Finally I fished out this fringed skirt from Go! that I bought at their mainstore a few months ago and that seemed to complete it. I’d already matched up tartan boots from Livalle (one of their amazing Fifty Linden Friday deals from a little while back). The shots were taken in Shin Akiba – this Japanese dystopia sim (which has a cinema, hotsprings baths, cafe etc.) almost closed, but it’s hanging in there at the moment and is a great place to go for this kind of photo.

05-09-17 arcade after 1

I’m not wearing anything from the Arcade in this picture (although it’s taken at the end of the Arcade pier) – I snapped it when I’d finished pouring linden into the Arcade machines and before I unpacked at home! I am very fond of the boho look, and I was pleased when I found I could wear this loose kimono over a long boho skirt (disclosure: it does actually clip a bit at the back, but I love it so much…. with a slimmer skirt it wouldn’t be a problem).

The skirt has a lovely satiny-velvety texture and a flowing shape, and the kimono has a generous HUD to choose different colours or patterns.
