Victorianna boutique, post 4


The other day, I thought to myself: If SL goes away due to complete company fail, what would remain? I can't take my gorgeous wardrobe off-world, and although I can keep friends in Plurk, how long would we hang out if we don't have anything in common any more? But then I thought of William Gibson and Neil Stephenson and took heart. SL isn't a temporary phenomenon, it's the beginning of a movement to virtually collapse space so that we are all neighbors in the blink of a teleport.

I think I got all postapocalyptic because of a dream I had last night, in which America's economic situation had gotten so bad that my family was wandering the streets starving, and I had to contemplate slaying Alba to keep her from dying slowly of hunger. Anyway, it could just be the stress of the semester wearing on me. My wise aunt Nancy once said that you are everything in your that if you dream of hunger, you are the hunger. What does it mean? I think for me, I just fear letting my family down.

This blog post is the fourth in the Victorianna Boutique series, one left to go. I got lazy and photographed in-world, but I quite love my outfit and hair. The hair for these posts has mostly been the delicate updos from Cornelia Rothschild's Historical Heroines shop. If you've seen her around the grid, you know that she always wears an awesome doll key. I'm wearing one here in her honor.
