LOCATION: The Arcade!
Hello all!  Like everyone else, I've been spending scads of Lindens at the fabulous Arcade Gatcha event. I don't have pictures of any of the items in this shoot, but I thought the sim itself made a great location for photography.  Props to the creators (Meshworx, I believe) for doing such a great job! The goodies I collected from the Arcade will definitely show up in later looks and blog posts - I'm pretty sure I got at least one of everything! The only think I haven't gotten is the Trompe Loeil Baroque Bench. I played the gatcha twice, but the benches were never delievered. :(  Cory Edo, TL's creator, was super nice and accomodating and refunded my money straight away. Now I'm trying to decide if I want to try to get that bench again and risk having it fail to deliver for a third time.  Hmmmm!
Meanwhile, I've been busy in SL decorating my new home, which I hope to take pictures of soon.  This look is something I put together in anticipation of that transitional period where summer sheds away into autumn.  Hats and jackets start to seem more and more do boots....but you don't feel quite so ready to put away the shorts and the swimsuit yet. But then it starts to rain and you realize that before you have a chance to get used to autumn, winter will be on its way...

I am home sick today - bad for me, good for the back-log of blogging I've been meaning to get to!  I am somewhat sheepish and ashamed to say that this look is WEEKS old, combining items from both last month's Collabor and the Vintage Fair.  Ah well.  Better now than never?  I put the look together and it struck me as very elegant and dignified, which meant I imediately wanted to give it a little edginess.  I imagined a young girl sitting to have her portrait painted and how hideously tedious and boring it must have been.... and what a relief it would be to dance around and listen to music after the ordeal was over!  The music itself?  The Smiths, of course.  The Queen is Dead. (Mostly because Morrissey tickets have just gone on sale here, and I can't afford them.  WOE~)
