For a Friend

A slightly different blog today...an inworld friend died in rl this week.

He was in his autumn years but still young at heart, a good friend. He was a shape creator and as such had a variety of avatars. I knew him on two of them best of all. Calisto, a male avatar, was very much the gentleman and a great laugh, a talented builder and creator. Then there was Mel, the female avatar, who was one hell of a fashionista: she had great taste and sense of style. Whichever avatar he was always himself and so got away with either gender. I will miss chatting, dancing and shopping with him.

I initially threw this look on so I wouldn’t be going around sl in a bikini. However, in view of this week’s event, I have been wearing it as a show of respect. I think both Cal and Mel would have approved….lol.

Mimikri’s version of the ‘little black dress’ is both fun and elegant. An asymmetric system top sits above a lace, puffball skirt. A small lace detail sits atop the shoulder strap, reflecting the skirt. The detail of the lace is astounding, I fell in love with this dress as soon as I wore it.

I kept the skin simple with PXL’s Candy skin in PaleLips but added a Fishy lipgloss for a touch of glamour.

Another new purchase from Plume fitted the bill, especially after I tinted the hair flowers black from the menu. I needed a hair base to make the hair look right so I am using a PXL tattoo hair base.

I felt pale eyes from Miriel gave me the sombre sadness that was appropriate.

Finally, the shoes I don’t seem to be able to take off at the moment…N-Core’s Chic mules.

So, this ones for you Bernie…RIP my friend x

I was blessed to have been partnered with one of Bernie's avatars for 3+ years... Andi.
And thru the time I was with her, I got to know all her other avatars. Miki, Nissa, Kira, Sara, Mel, etc.
She mentioned the enjoyable days spent with you on your photo shoots, chatting, just enjoying your time in SL.
She is deeply missed by many out here, especially me.
Thank you for your wonderful tribute.
