Look, a post! I have to post this today because one of the items is time-sensitive. Not in the way that Doctor Who is time-sensitive, in the way that it won’t be there anymore after 50 Linden Friday. That’s the shirt, which is from League. One of these days I should blog League, since I did go on a spree there once when my Ls had accumulated nicely. But not Steampunk Apocalypse, everyone has that, it would be unexciting.
Anyway, I had gone to Dutch Touch and picked up these jeans and that skirt, which are realistic but not scary (one of my main rules for SL clothes is that they should not look terrifyingly real like they are about to crawl out of the screen and kill me). Then I spent several days trying to find something to wear with them for this blog post thing. Luckily 50LF happened, hurrah! And of course before that happened I picked up other stuff that wasn’t remotely what I was supposed to be looking for, like a bunch of hair from Gritty Kitty, one of which is pictured here.
The overall look says “I work in a garage, but not as a mechanic. No, I am employed to lean over the cars in a sexual fashion and contribute to a culture of sexual harrassment in the workplace.” If you don’t want to go for that look, you may want to accessorise with huge violent boots and some knives.
Skin is from Pixeldolls, shoes from HoC. I should, err, probably obtain more than one pair of trainers, yeah?

The best thing about downsizing your SL land holdings is that you get many spacebux to spend on clothes. (I am now in Nokomis, if anyone wants to visit, which they won’t.)
I built this obviously stunning look around the Second-Hand Jacket from Truth. I have hair from Truth but this is the first time I have purchased a non-hair thing there. It was very confusing to me. It is not hair, what’s with that? I ended up choosing the peach colour as most convincingly like what you wear when you never wash. Which is a good look.
The hair in the picture is not from Truth, it is from Magika. Because there is a sale on. I got a couple of nice hairs but I had to mod them for my apparently huge (size 50) head, so I dunno if I will go back to impulse-buy in future. Yes, I am that lazy. One great thing about black hair is that I can’t actually tell on my monitor if the textures are any good, so I assume these ones are but even if they aren’t I don’t care because I don’t know. Um, that was not me dissing Magika, it was me sharing a story. I am sure Magika is a fine legitimate business with many fans.
The jeans are “vintage” ones from Celestial Studios, in the discount section. They are cheap because they are old and no one likes old things. I did not wear a shirt because the thing I would have worn was a brown corset from Lovelace but the layering of the outfit wouldn’t work. Oh well. At least this way you get to see part of my breasts. LOOK AT THEM ARE’T THEY NICE?
The shoes are from Tesla and were bought for me by my SLWife Miriam Woyseck, so that I could have 100 pairs of shoes. That partnering thing was totally worth the 10Ls that symbolise our undying love. I love Tesla shoes, they are pretty and made of those sculpty things that Stiletto Moody invented back when all we had was default-textured cubes.
Ah, the skin. The skin is Jia from Skin Within. Ages ago I got the demos but went for Alasyia instead because this one was a bit darker than I wanted. Since then I have got some slightly darker skins and have changed my face sliders, so I spent some mad spacebux on a skin. I may go back for an almost identical make-up that I liked as well.
