Dress Me Up 7: Ach by Dakota and Mourna

girl01

It's kind of fun to genderswitch in the middle of a photo shoot. Poor boi Ach didn't look quite right in the jewelry, however -- he said that despite his penchant for crossdressing, the gold chains were a little over-the-top. Girl Ach, on the other hand, quite liked the gold jewelry (part of this silk set by Dazzle). These looks are inspired by two challenges: Dakota: I would really like to see Boy-Ach in eXceSs skin, hair and clothes. :) Mourna: Lets see Ach in silks! ;D

I was hopping around the floating world yesterday looking for various things when Noam and Fade tugged me over to see some ghosts. I explained my mission, and Fade handed me some vintage silks. These are from the defunct Dazzle line, and it's a shame that the store is no more. The silks are nicely done, fit my boy and girl avs to a T, and seem tasteful in a 50s movie kind of way. My girl av feels like Zha Zha Gabor in a film about Ghengis Khan.

The boi avatar is in skin and hair from eXceSs, one of Dakota's favorite stores. The androgyne line of skins truly are interesting -- some of them seem more suited to female avs than male avs (something about the lips and eyebrows), but I think my boi looks quite nice, if a little twee, in all that blue skin. The slightly darker blue shading is well done. The hair is a group gift in the eXceSs store, and there's also a sweater next to it.

Edit: Giggle. Dakota pointed out that boi Ach is in a female skin. Question: why call a skin "Androgyne" if it's meant for women? This is especially confusing when there's an Androgyne line of skins that are meant for both ... Anyway. I still think he looks nice :D.

I wanna see more challenges! I can't wait to see everyone else's looks -- it's been so much fun.
