A sound of distant living

kimonol I’m running out of “relatable” titles for posts featuring traditional Japanese dress. Once one has used Turning Japanese and Kimono my house, one is left with a choice between Yukata da money? and Life in Tokyo. I chose a line from that song by Japan, but not without opening up my own personal can of squirms. As a youth, I could not stand the sound of David Sylvian’s voice, and he himself seemed like a creepy cipher. With the exception of Adolescent Sex, I was not a fan. I suffered terribly from being on the outside of the “David Sylvian is a genius” cult because only his fans had a reputation for being smart and sensitive and arty. (Whatever gets you through the night, eh?)

MotiAme’s creations are standouts among the mesh yukatas for sale at the festival on the Bakumatsu sim. I went crazy for this geometric motif, which is also available in black and green. As you shop Hair Fair this week, don’t forget to check out the 50L bandanas, which are housed in their own special booths. 100% of the proceeds will be donated to Wigs For Kids. Portia wears Lelutka’s Aldina, which is unrigged mesh. Her antlers are Half Deer’s item for the second anniversary of The Gallery Gift Shop. They come in a variety of finishes and are dotted with fireflies, which you can only just see in my pic. Last but not least, I noticed that the template for the cute wedge sandal (shown above) is hitting the grid hard. As of today, the version I like best comes from Severed Garden. For 330L, you get a fatpack with fifteen different textures for the straps and for the soles, plus a variety of nail polishes that actually rez.
