Candy Flanagan greeted me so sweetly when I stepped into Illusions to take these photos. She was in the process of donning an outfit, and so was I. "I'm supposed to keep it PG," Candy said with a virtual grin, "so I never know how much skin I can wear."
I like people comfortable in their skins. My own avatar has a lifetime of repression issues about revealing too much flesh -- it's Victorian baggage, don't you know. Even for Mardi Gras, she insisted that if the shoulders were bare, the ankles couldn't be. She looks like a young debutante in this outfit, dressed for the Bacchus ball.
Illusion is a gorgeous little store in an evocative sim, Carnivale. If you take a wander around the pillared marble shop, you will see grandly creative items that somehow sell for less than you think they should. Siyu has so many great freebies in her shop, too -- masks, necklaces, horns, everything to outfit the newborn avatar as a sophisticated member of fashion society.
Happy Fat Tuesday. Remember: do all kinds of things today so that you can repent tomorrow!
