Dress Me Up 13: Ach by Tristan


As befits challenge #13 (a super-unlucky number for me for various good reasons), this was a difficult challenge! Tristan wanted: some leggings from fishy strawberry..philotic energy hair....piercings from genesha (No Mercy) from garden of ku...flirt from SLink.. And a few other things, but I settled for this list. I'm not sure why, but nothing at all was gelling for me. Even now, I feel strangely matchy-matchy, as if I should mitigate all that orange and black with something green or purple. I dunno! At a certain point you just gotta cut your losses and run with it...

Notable are three things: First, the gorgeous Engineer's Cap from Fade Dana, very well done and in a variety of styles with and without buckles. One can't go wrong with caps from Fade, and this is yet another fine style with "Christmas gift" written all over it. Check out her goggles while you're there! Second, and contrasting with the toughness of the hat, is this choker from ~flirt~. I really like the quality and color-changing ability of the choker, too. Third, this lovely blushing skin. It's new from *katat0nik*, one of her Skins of Delphi, and it's currently available to her group for a special price (correct me if I'm wrong, kat!). katat0nik is getting even more skillful with her lip design and cheek and eye coloring, and it's exciting to see where her skins go from here!

The rest of the outfit is made up of lovely pieces that would probably look great in some other configuration. Ah well, I tried ♥.

You didn't say where they are from, but I think the icing on the cake are those lovely amber eyes...

If you still take suggestions: I'd love to see you in some ethnic Arab/Middle Eastern get up - think Lawrence of Arabia, or for the more sci-fi/fantasy variety, the Stargate movie or Dune. Come to think of it, I'd love to see BOY Ach as some kind of emo Lawrence of Arabia type....
