Red hair and plum makeup. Don’t try this at home. But do run down to Chaisuki to pick up the two gift skins and the snowflake body tat that Portia wears in this post. There are many festive lipstick tats in other boxes under the tree. As far as the styling goes, I’m hoping that my combos in this post are so bad that they do illegal U-turns into good.
I’m feeling overwhelmed, in a wonderful way, by the generous gifts that SL’s creators are sending to their groups or setting out in stores. I can’t thank you all enough! Mimikri Kit’s gift to her subo group is one of my favourites of the season. It makes me want to talk with my hands and wear heels so high that I can’t walk in them and have to just shimmy on the spot.
To capture this ensemble in what turned out to be a disappointing photo, I shot twenty pics over 40 minutes, with my avatar jumping out of place every two or three shots. (What’s that about?) I’d be exasperated, but I’m used to SL shoots being an exercise in frustration. I pick the lint out of my bellybutton while I wait for textures to rez. Please remember that my graphics card is made of double-sided tape and dollar-store ribbon. Mimikri’s Yeti vest would look so much better if I could shoot it on my mother’s PC. But the latest Phoenix and official viewers will only connect once on her machine before having to be reinstalled from scratch. I know, try an older version. I did. No dice. I also tried the Phoenix fix. Double no dice.
