Have you ever made friends with someone based entirely upon their avatar's outfit?
I was standing in the massive lag that was MoonDoggies earlier tonight when I came across Ellantha Larsson. She was similarly trapped, and we stared at each other while we were frozen in space. Ellantha was in an adorable outfit of culottes and a high-necked shirt and hat and glasses and a lip ring of her own design, and I had to mention that I was a complete sucker for demure demi-Victorian.
Ellantha explained that it was a new release from Bare Rose, "The most expensive thing I've gotten from there at 200L," she chuckled.
"Can I take photos of you for my blog?" I begged, and Ellantha agreed.
I'm also in a new release, Fleur's gorgeous Shoujo skin. I'm going to keep it on forever, partly because it references one of my favorite manga, Paradise Kiss. So we logged out and back in at La Reina and commiserated about potty training while we took photos. Second Life, bringing restless shopping moms together.
While I was in La Reina, I noticed the lovely beach. It was the perfect place to show off another version of the Shoujo makeup. Now I understand why Creamy Cooljoke's little store is right on the beach! The lighting is gorgeous there with all the reflections from the water. Below is the Fleur Lotus Shojo 6.
I'm an enormous fan of Fleur (Tete a Pied) skins to begin with, and the second I saw the lovely wash of pink, I jogged my avatar right over. Both makeups suit my avatar very well -- tasteful, and never overly done or distracting.
