Flapper time

This look started with a group themed photoshoot...Gangsters and Flappers. I thought I must have something, so delved into my inventory. I came up with a look I had used for a Fleur skin shoot, love it, wish i wore it more but far too formal. I decided to go visit my favourite speakeasy, The Vault, and do a touch of window shopping there.

I came upon Donna Flora, what a treat! As soon as I saw the Holly dress I knew that was the basis for the look. It's nicely textured, draped folds on the front of the top with a wonderful art deco detail forming the back piece. The skirt is quite a construction....starting with the system pants you add a flexi skirt of the same material. A further flexi 'skirt', of a complimentay material, is added as a leg attachment and stockings are also included. This gives the whole dress the Flapper feel. A prim flower adds to the overall look. Wonderful! The folder also contains jewelry but I have left this off as I like the clean lines.

Next on the agenda were shoes...and for some reason I remembered seeing Shiny Things Belles shoes. Off I went to purchase a pair...hmmm..colour? Purple or red? I eventually got bad with I am wearing the purple with the dress.

The hair was the next important step and, as I have more hair than I really should have, I went back to my inventory. I ended up with <TheAbyss> Hair - Aeon - Full Moon as it gives that razor sharp, assymetric bob that screams 1920s.

My skin I already knew I was going to choose was Fleur Allure Alabaster Biba 1...dramatic 1920s, smokey eyed, scarlet lipped pale waif look.

Just one thing left to complete the Flapper look...i needed a cigarette and holder. Ha! Yes, I even have this in my inventory in the form of Digital dragon Vintage Cigarette Holder with Cigarette.

There you have my severe, cool(?), Flapper...ready for her
