Curious about what?

Curious Kitties Sajiahar Skin in Red

Curious Kitties is having a skin sale from March 15 - 25. One of the first skins I found in Second Life was from Curious Kitties, and at the time I bit my fingernails because 700L seemed like a steep price to pay for anything. The same skin is now on sale for 250L, and because I still love it, I bought two other versions (the Sajiahar in red and orange).

I love these skins because of a few things. First, they help me look asian, and non-traditionally so. I'm half-asian but look very western IRL. Anything that can help me explore this side of myself in Second Life is wonderful! Second, the skins create an atmosphere. They aren't about realism, they're about living in a world where our mask-like makeup projects a geisha's poised intelligence. Here I'm touching upon old imperialistic constructs, right? Asian = geisha = cypher. I should watch my tongue. Still, they're useful for describing makeup. :D
