The blizzard, which will keep me indoors for a second day unless my desire for diner-quality French toast overrides my survival instincts, got me thinking again about the storms and floods in Australia. So I revisited the Extend a Helping Hand event, which runs through February 8. A second group of designers added their wares, but I went back for this gorgeous dress from Evie’s Closet, which I didn’t buy first time around because I assumed everyone would blog it into oblivion. The colours in this gown are much richer than my night-lit picture conveys. I also bought the matching necklace and diadem, but Portia declined to wear them, on account of the weather, and reached instead for izm’s hoodie.

I take the devastation in Australia very seriously, and yet I couldn’t help getting frivolous with this ensemble. The EAHH event SLink rainboots come complete with a froggy stowaway, so Imma gonna say the boots started the silly. Truth be told it’s latex that gets me going. I can’t take Portia seriously as either a domme or a cyberina, so putting her into a shiny catsuit like DV8’s Evilynne in Fallout can only bring on oversize shiny glasses. (Portia writes: “Next time I’m wearing a double row of spinal injectors, some rainbow dreads, and a mechanical arm, and then we’ll see who’s laughing.”)
