Braids ‘n’ blues

I have overcome my aversion to blue thanks to the creators and bloggers of SL. This eye-popping jacket and sexy skirt are 15L items in R.icielli’s Valentine’s Day hunt, which ain’t hardly a hunt since the hearts are huge. There’s also a poster in the courtyard showing you what’s available in each numbered heart, so you can pick and choose.

I tried on a lot of braided hair at Discord and finally chose this “male” style Devon because I wanted a tough minimalist look with very little hair hanging in back or over the face. No concessions me. The skins in this post are only 50L each at Bare Sensual, and I love the way they look on V.Redrose’s Affy shape.

I am sorry to report that tea soup is closing her eponymous shop after June 17th. So if you want what Ms. soup’s got—at a discount, no less—you must go now. I have a lot of tea soup’s poses, partly because she participated in many of the weekly sales events, and that made them as affordable as they were appealing. When she released her Acoustic set, I found myself wanting to strap a guitar on my av for every photo. (And I am so not the type to strum and sing U2’s One. I am the type to smash the guitar of the U2 fan. Because it’s a valuable lesson for him. And the world.) Best of all, there are male as well as female versions of many of tea soup’s prop poses.
