Frontin’


Yah know, I never wanted to say “Don’t front” until I heard Betty Suarez say it to her nerdy Korean coworker. I’ve also never tried to front—unless you count playing a woman in SL—and wouldn’t know how to front in RL, although I do slide ever so smoothly into Jon Stewart mode when my students are resisting post-colonialist thought. When I won the Legend outfit from SZD’s MM, I knew I was going to have to erm bring my A game, go all in, pump up the jam, or just plain hollah! Wondering what the heck these big pants are called and who the heck wears them, I turned to the Urban Dictionary but got distracted by “chav,” the definitions for which are carefully crafted and charming, so I still don’t know what Portia is pretending to be. But I have a feeling she closely resembles Seth Green’s character in Can’t Hardly Wait.

I betcha she doesn’t pay attention in school and thus has no idea that her “Eat Me” goggles are citing Alice in Wonderland. (Yes, I’m still pulling for the PG readership.)


This look is my version of hipster chic, which I can’t pull off in real life because my legs are not actually made of three toothpicks glued together and my cheekbones choose to recline, drape themselves in fat, and read The Economist. (An Economist reader hurt me real bad, so that’s my personal symbol of treachery. And of course I’m a woman irl! No man could envision his cheekbones reading The Economist. Not when his dick is handy. To do the imagined reading, I mean.) The Jane suit, with its cheekily abbreviated sleeves, has that faux geeky vibe that matters so much in a look like this.


My secret ingredient here is Sterre, a shape free for Dutch Touch’s VIP group members. The new Sterre skin is also available to group members only for 550L a pack. It amazes me that Iki Ikarus’s skins work on glamour girls’ faces and on Sterre’s, which is wonderfully cartoonish.
