You gotta love SL. It’s the only place in my life where I really need to be careful about speaking ill of the dead. When I contacted Munchflower Zaius about blogging Nomine’s pretty new Magpie skin, she asked me which tones I wanted to try. I said that I was into pale—not dead pale, just avoiding the sun pale. And then I realized that if Ms. Gaius was a vampire or a ghost she might take that amiss. So I elaborated: “Not that there’s anything wrong with being dead.” She LOLed. Crisis averted. Readers offended by my sun bigotry can take my av to a beach and tie her down to fry in the sun, but she’d probably enjoy that.
Each Magpie eye makeup comes in a variety of intensities, ranging from pale to dark. Magpie takes full advantage of viewer 2’s tattoo layers options, giving you eyebrows in multiple colours, as well as a variety of lip enhancements with and without teeth. There’s also a tat giving you less cleavage, which you can see on the right in this picture.
Magpie offers a relatively normal beauty to gothic gals who are tired of looking like Siouxsie Sioux’s doppelganger’s doppelganger. The Aeolian lipstick is the only out-and-out gothic lip tat: it comes in a nude version and in the pink one you see here. Is it me, or do those lips look like yummy licorice candy?
