Rock-in my Jord

Everything is contextual, right? The best part of Second Life (and the weirdest) is that it provides you with a context for just about anything you want to wear/be/do. If you want to wear a mecha suit, you can join a combat roleplaying game. If you want to be an eternal college student (but without the silly classes), you can!

The Wastelands is clearly the right place for Draconic Kiss's Jord dress. It's got little arm-strapped pouches, perfect for collecting rocks! Okay, fine, it's meant for ammo... Today, my avatar is a geologist in the vein of Lara Croft, and is here striding fearlessly across The Wastelands in search of new and interesting minerals.

She has a friend and ally there, a squatter that figured out how to cobble together enough technology to play ancient films (from the 1900s and 2000s) at his drive-in. Giuseppe Spicolli is his name, and he's been a Wastelands denizen for a while now. Sometimes he makes her chill out and watch strange movies like Repo Man, but her attention span is small. She'd really rather be getting her rocks ... off. (Hey. Not like that.)

RL note: my daddy was a scientist like Lara Croft, and totally dragged me with him into every single cave he saw. I spent my childhood in Hawaii, which sounds glorious, but most of my time there was in near-pitch darkness listening to water drip from the top of the cave to the floor. Didn't learn how to surf, but I totally learned how to rappel.

When she isn't engaging in rock classification, this dress could also be used for dancing!
