So this time I got a little nostalgic, as well as thankful for the great friends I have, one of whom is Ashia Tomsen and her input of letters and colours in the last few weeks for my posts. It reminded me that years ago Dove Swanson of Long Awkward Pose did a few sets of poses named after some friends of hers, I was honored to be one of them, and most of the people I also knew, so decided to turn it into a post where I used the pose and then dressed as the person, my own take on their style etc. The post is HERE and some of the names will be familiar to you still today.
So with that being a thing I do, even years later, today’s letters are based on Ashia’s name, and the look that to me represents her style and fun. It was also a way to show that even though on my feet, she wears shoes very rarely, but if she is wearing shoes, they are usually something as incredible as these by Azoury, and she is a huge fan of Azoury so it was perfect. The outfit is all the things, some punk for the UK and her colours red and black, also she does like to show her bottom off – dodges the smack she just sent me telepathically.
She loves her ink, and while not a huge tattoo wearer, for me Izzie’s is the perfect mix of delicate when it comes to tattoo adornments. Ears, well she has probably every type of ear style that is available in Second Life, and I know she is a big fan of Swallow. These elf ears are so cute, the chainwork and detailing are really lovely. I did find it a bit fiddly with skin matching at first, their texture options are very high quality, so it sometimes does not translate when skins are a bit more matte. But I got there eventually and only had to do a tiny blend for my picture just because.
The hair was also an easy reach, being an A name just happened to be convenient but Adoness is a much-beloved stylist for shaved looking side styles or just your roar kind of look. I am not using a shaved base in this pic though, using the default hairbase in the LeLutka head hud because it has very similar highlights as the black hair textures on the Adoness hair, so it is very nice together.
So be like me, and be a huge fan of Ashia Tomsen ♥
