So today I was met with a forest of trees and a picnic, but not because it was all romantic, just Whimsy and her rezzing things in my way thing she does. It was a good morning though, got a lot of stuff done, had a great big chat with Gogo and some others in plurk about contacting designers, and so on and so forth. I am actually about to play a game of Scarlet Blade with Whimsy and Mel right now, but I just had to get this post up and away, because it was so much fun to dress up this way…brought back some crazy memories.
The theme for this months Collabor88 is 90’s, and there has been a bit of debate about what is what, but I personally think that everyone is right, because it really comes down to how old you were in the 90’s and where in the 90’s, such as start, middle or closer to the 2000’s. I remember going to a lot of dance parties in the early 90’s, dancing until sunday from leaving the house friday night, and then taking a few days to recover from it all. Leaving a warehouse at dawn to go to a recovery party, and having to step over piles of clothing, as people go so hot they just took off layers and dumped them.
The outfit I put together, is a mix of the stuff from Collabor88 and items I already had, the already had is the amazingly cute skirt by HOC industries, that not only is perfect in its Clueless kind of way, but also definitely something fun for clubbing, and still sexy. It has a texture change hud with lots of adorable tartan and check, as well as belt options. Also as all HOC industries items, there are extra group only options, so definitely worth joining the group if you like special extras like that.
The top I am wearing is from Collabor88, and it is a basic knot top by Tee*fy, I love that it comes in great colours, making it wearable often. I also like that the knot is on the side, making it less likely to get in the way of other items worn. It is also a good lenght, that you could layer under it with system clothing fairly easily.
The really adorable raver buns from Nylon Outfitters as part of Collabor88 bring the whole look together so well. I did have a bit of an issue with the hair base, as it was higher at the back on one side, revealing too much baldness for me…but an easy fix for that was to wear a hairbase from LeLutka, and then wear the raver buns hairbase over the top, because it has its unique drawn look and the centre part that works with the buns….easy.
I have always been a lover of Mary Jane shoes, and these ones by Fri.day are very cute, they are flats and cotton, and remind me very much of the trend based off of the asian slippers worn a lot in the mid 80’s, but as trends tend to carry forth into the next decade, it is definitely something easy to wear, and very comfy for long nights dancing. With them I am wearing the latest socks from Izzies, that also come with appliers for the Slink feet…so lots of fun to be had with those, sliding around the house.
Lastly the skin, and it was news to me that Whore Couture Fair is now a MONTHLY event, because I honestly missed that announcement somewhere. I am a bit saddened by that actually, because I think that it had merit being an annual thing, having so many sims, and so many stores build up to that kind of item. But with it being so successful I guess, riding it while you can makes sense.
The Skin is the Mya skin by Belleza, and the make up on it is just lovely. The skin is available in all tones, and I am wearing my appliers that match for the hands, cannot wait until the feet are done, as I am sure many are going to be excited to see. The nails I am wearing are from Flair, and they are a tartan based set, which took a long time to make as they were about 15 layers per nail colour blend, but I love them so much. I hope you do too.
