Pale by comparison

I think I love Doppelganger’s free Tuxedo Dress because it’s a welcome contrast to the intense colours of the season. Or because it reminds me of the designer marshmallows lightly burdening the holiday foods tables in the chichi grocery stores of Toronto. Next week I go back to taking the dog sled to an overturned produce stand in no man’s land, so I am not complaining about designer marhsmallows. I choose to continue devoting my RL money to gingerbread flowers, however, which I eat one petal at a time. It’s much more civilized than slowly killing a gingerbread man by eating him limb by limb.

It’s ironic that my leap into the future of computing prompted me to buy Croire’s crafting set, scoop up BP*’s free baskets of yarn, and then pose my models with stuffed toys. I must be secretly intimidated by the flashy and sophisticated adult world of electronic media. While I’m probing my psyche, I should confess that I have an inexplicable aversion to Uggs or Uggslike boots, and I need to get over that if I am going to fit in to society. I compromised here with SasHe’s Wayland boots, which I picked up free before Xmas. Also of note in these photos: the lovely pale stockings from Jolie, which I bought in a very inexpensive four-pack from the Marketplace. These ones, with their Art Nouveau pattern, are my fave of the bunch.

My info on So Secret 2011 does not give an end-date, so you may still be able to pick up this 50L skin at Cashmere. It comes with a teeth tattoo, but not with the blush, which was part of a 2010 makeup tat gift from Dutch Touch. Are you digging Lo’s overbite or should I shoot her from a more flattering angle?
