Blogging SL fashion is hard because the intense creativity, mad skills, and pure beauty of SL bloggers set the bar extremely high. As stimulating as this is, I frequently feel as though my photos will never measure up and that I should quit while I’m ahead. On the other hand, I feel hella proud when I can get Portia to balance a twelve-scoop ice cream cone while standing on one high-heeled foot and surround her with shadows.
I’ve also been frustrated lately because I can’t get my avs to cut loose and look all hot and sexy. This photo is a case in point. I brought out Power Portia, my av’s plus-size version, draped her in nothing but the scarf from Aoharu’s blouse and scarf set, and got a photo that wavers between cheesecake and catalogue. It’s a “tasteful” sexiness and it’s got to go. This sexy fail is a consequence of my own repressions, and these must be overcome before it’s too late. /me can’t remember where she packed her one pair of slutty heels. /me is too lazy to look. I think it’s already too late.
I too fell hard for Shoop. It reminds me of my 70s childhood, but in a good way. In the “Yay we get to watch Donny and Marie tonight!” way. Not in the “Could there be more orange and brown in this world?!” way.
