Art Attack…

second-life-nylon-outfitters1

I found a recent SLsecret post highly amusing; someone in week 36 was poking fun at mass produced items using full perm textures and sculpties. In contrast, it started me thinking about hand-drawn textures and the amazing talent that goes into the creation of them. Don’t get me wrong, I think photo-realistic and computer generated textures when done at their best (aka Redgrave) are fantastic, but I wonder if we give enough credit to those designers who create clothing the old fashioned way using paper, paint, and ink. For me, there is just something oh so special about owning a piece that I know has been hand-drawn. Anyway, that got my creative juices flowing and I seem to have been struck with the arty farties. So in this post, I decided to focus in the main on hand-drawn clothing and pay homage to one art movement with my very crude attempt at cubism (no chuckling in the back please!).

Remember, when you buy a dress or any all-in-one, you could be getting more than one outfit for your money! I often split up the top or bottom of a complete outfit to make separates as I have in the first of the main shots in this post. This works best if the outfit is offered in multiple layer options so check the vendor first to see what you get in the pack by clicking the item as if you’re going to buy it and looking at the available layers in the pop up window.

Knock Yourself Out with Sport Lux…

Ever had one of those weeks where by the end you just feel like life has beaten you up a bit? Well, I almost had one and right now I’m not a jolly Dolly, I’m a ‘kick ass life tried taking me on and lost’ Dolly! Well don’t be too scared, I’m still hard on the outside and soft as ever on the inside (shhhh don’t tell anyone) and this week’s post isn’t just about winners and losers; it’s also about fashion (of course!) and other aspects of my life. Firstly, I know Sports Lux has been in vogue since 2007, but my favourite glam rag mags (Harpers Bazaar and Cosmo) are still giving it coverage and blissfully the trend is continuing to feature big in some of the elite SL labels including Ce Cubic Effect and COCO. Secondly, I have persuaded Sugar Daddy to join me at circuit training when he returns to the UK next week… he asked me if I was going to kick his ass… what do you think I said?… answers on a postcard please :P.

1. More and more, I find myself turning to Xstreet when I’m styling and can’t find items I know will finish off the ensembles I’m putting together. Whilst the search functionality may not be perfect, it’s certainly an improvement on the inworld search. I’ve found many pieces on Xstreet, including this one, that aren’t available inworld and they tend to be a whole lot cheaper too. EMO Black Star Visor (L$25)

2. I love a freebie just as much as the next girl especially when they’re as yummy as these earrings created by Polyester Partridge. You can pick them up at the GNUbie Store along with a green version and whole host of freebie and dollarbie goodies from some of SL’s most popular designers. Yummy Jewlery Pink Swirly Earrings (L$0)

3. I have one word for these shades… genius! In case you haven’t worked it out yet, they are textured on the lenses with city street reflections. The pack comes with a night and day version. Highly recommended! [ glow ] Studio Shutter Shades Night Version (part of the Shutter Shades day’n’night pack) (L$230)

4. Thanks to Pixelfashion Sally Shoes in White (L$0)

5. Now this may look like your ordinary polo shirt, but as you’ve probably worked out by now, I always go for things that are just that little bit different; this top certainly fits into that category. It has great hand-drawn texturing on the front, but it’s quirkiness lies on the back where you’ll find the cutest gathering finished off with a prim tie. Surf Couture Tie Back Polo in Sour Apple (L$100)
