Farewell to the fair

medieval Hair Fair, which raises money for Wigs for Kids, is ending this Sunday, July 27th. Today I am sharing with you one of my favourite finds from Oblivion—the perfectly fashioned Middle-Age 021, which comes with a colour-change HUD for the hat. I am aware that not everyone in SL speaks English, so I rarely comment on odd names. This one, however, made me cringe. Medieval 021 would be perfect, Middle Ages 021 just as good. But middle age, which I am experiencing, refers not to a historical period but to that time in a person’s life when parts of the body suddenly sag or swell or emit mysterious pains. I used to be able to read in near darkness. Now I have readers. I actually caught myself taking them off and folding them in my lap when I turned to address a young whippersnapper who was pestering me for a charitable donation when all I wanted was to sit quietly on a Starbucks terrace, dipping stale madeleines into tea, and ruminating over bygone days. Before I go, I want to point out that Hedda’s frighteningly sexy gladiator boots are a new template, so do some shopping around before paying out big bucks. I got mine as part of a 100L promo deal from ALB (Analee Balut) on Marketplace. It includes the boots, which can be worn with or without the leg straps, a wonderfully slutty short black dress, a tattoo and some accessories.

So wearable

I love a wearable demo! AnaLee Balut and her real-life daughter ShuShu Congrejo offer wearable demos for their mesh releases for ALB and ShuShu, respectively. A wearable demo gives one a clear sense of how the fabric will look and move. A blank demo that shows only the shape and fit of the garment or shoe is much less informative and far less tempting. I did a quick search of Marketplace and found wearable demos from Duh! and from Attic. Another creator who does them is Nene Flores of [Solita], and she has just issued a new mini-skirt for us to try out. (Her shop is also beautifully decorated, a good place to take photos.)

Sometimes my av looks pretty. Today it’s thanks to an Xmas gift skin from Swallow and hunt-gift eyes from Epic.

I GIMPed the first photo a lot because I am trying to be more better at this. In the second photo, I botched a nose job.
