The photos for this post got a little pretentious after I took this shot and imagined that I was channelling Bruegel’s Fall of Icarus. Sammie of Baffle! set out two butterfly-themed gifts this weekend, and I took the opportunity to shoot on the picturesque sim. The intensely blue pants by So Many Styles are available at the current round of TDR, which is full of goodies. I don’t know how you deal with the disappointment of TPing to TDR too early on a Friday and ending up in the scrub, but I can never resist camming in and making one pervchase. Okay, two.
There are delicious new group gifts from SMS and Leo-NT. The tunic is part of a new release of tunics in more restrained colours that coordinate with vivid faux
fur feather vests, which I want want want. The Leo-NT ring, which comes with a necklace that is already flooding the feeds, coordinates with a fun butterfly belt being released today. *does the want want want dance*
The skin Portia wears in this post is Charlotte, a yummy debut release from Apple Spice, who makes fabulous poses. I like Charlotte in the palest skin tone with the brightest lips. Portia’s butterfly pal is from Baffle!, and it’s supposed to sit on your avi’s nose. Portia scared hers off with a big snotty sneeze.
Miss Shippe’s Studio is full of really inexpensive and inventive face-paints like this undereye butterfly tat. It makes up for the way the new group gift from Raw House covers Portia’s eyes. This group costs money when there’s a gift out, but it is free during the off season. I’ll leave it to you to decide how much you want to pay to make your avi blind by blonde.
