Ah, the limitations of WordPress. Sometimes the smaller size just doesn’t do justice to a picture I’ve worked on for ages. Yeah, but you know the size limitations. Keep those in mind when doing a picture, dummy. I know. Shut up.
Okay, first things first: I’ve totally not blogged all the same things everybody else has blogged, and that’s terrible. I didn’t do Hair Fair, and Hair Fair was mostly awesome. There were even a handful of short hairs, which is pretty unusual. However, I’ll say this: Please, people, when making men’s hair? Please, for the love of god, remember that male AVs aren’t the only people who wear them. Give me a resize, ffs. It’s short hair. It can be mod.
I also haven’t been able to blog Love Donna Flora, mostly because let’s be honest, the stuff out for LDF is very feminine, because Squinternet’s style is generally hyperfeminine (and I am not). Go anyway, guys. I’ve taken two of my alts and three friends. It’s a good cause: Squinternet Larnia, the creative genius behind Donna Flora and an unfailingly generous and active member of the SL community, has cancer, and needs just a little help. The event just started, and ends August 11. GO.
There. That said, I want to talk about ISON for a second, because I am really remiss for having not featured it enough before.
Recently, I made the observation that there were few stores that I shop from all the time. ISON is an exception to this, and really is one of my favorite stores in SL. Harry Hyx just constantly gets better and better, with beautiful, classic wardrobe staples rendered in gorgeous, realistic textures that suggest expensive materials in well-tailored cuts. He manages to hit nearly every style: between myself and my alt, I think I own most of the things he’s put out, and I can’t think of another store in SL i can say the same about.
I imagine the only reason it doesn’t feature more in my blog is because I wear ISON so much every day that it doesn’t become dress-up clothes. Mental note: fix that.
My lovely companion is in a lot of Teefy. Azure Electricteeth makes such beautiful, soft, girly, romantic pieces — I don’t wear them, but I do love to look at them. And now you get to look at them, too. Everybody wins!
