The long journey out of the self

I stared at my face the other day and had the depressing thought that I wasn't going to ever look any cuter; this is it. At almost 37, my real-life skin is going to give way into a thousand mushy lines. I'm trying to embrace it, because it's mitigated by the knowledge that I'm wearing my body better. My real life puppet is tough to fit, but I'm learning a trick or two about how to wear it. In SL, how do we express age? I think we get the joy of wearing our avatar with aplomb with none of the accompanying wrinkles.

I've been listening to too much Honeycut and dressing my avatar up in warm browns. This new dress is by Elate!, the Kaia dress in chocolate, and I'm wearing it over Plastik's Fierii legging. All ready for Spring in Florida… (SLURL to Elate!, SLURL to Plastik) Oh, the skin is from the new batch of gatcha skins (super cheap!) by Ugly Duck. I love the cheeky skin tone and makeup on this one. "Clay" indeed. (SLURL to Ugly Duck)
