For a Friend
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
