Occasionally, one of my Flickr contacts asks why so many SL fashionistas want to look unhappy by giving their avs pouting, downturned lips. I can think of a hundred reasons to look SLad, most of which have to do with insane pressures on women to look happy in RL. Then there’s the fact that hardline Republican Governor Scott Walker survived the recall vote and will continue to wreak havoc on already disempowered citizens. This is the guy who wants to prevent teachers from having the benefit of collective bargaining. Because doing thankless work for a pittance isn’t suffering enough. That’s enough to make anyone sigh, slouch and pout in pics.
Of course, one wants to sulk in style. In addition to her fetching sweater, an affordable delight from Admiral Spicy, and her free group gift skirt from Piccara, Anorak sports JesyLilo’s Jess skin, available at Skin Addiction’s Skin Showcase. Inspired by Jessica Stam, this skin combines a ruddy complexion with bold makeups. (I have chosen to show the natural skin, which is almost always my favourite when it comes to Lilo Glom’s distinctive faces.) Jess comes with the usual cleavage and freckles options and a teeth tat. There’s also a set of tat eyebrows so you don’t have to be a redhead, and a set of strongly coloured lipsticks. Eyes and shape are sold separately. Ms. Glom also just released a complete summer-loving avatar that includes the Jessica shape and a single red-lipped skin, as well as a sweet floral romper, long hair with a floppy sunhat and plenty of accessories.
