Suivez-moi to Edinburgh…

second-life-aoharu-3

Those of you that read my last post may know that I’ve been away for the Summer. Sugar Daddy’s family came to visit from the US for a month and we had a wonderful time showing them all that Britain has to offer. Unfortunately, I didn’t have time for blogging or any SL playtime for that matter so Dolly didn’t join me on our adventures. However, if had she been with me, I know she would have worn the outfits I’m going to showcase in my series of next 3 posts. Today, I will be your guide to Edinburgh; so please “Suivez-moi!”.

Edinburgh is a fantastic city charmed with character, whiffing of whiskey, and tarted up with tartan! Scotland is renowned for wet weather and it’s no exaggeration when I say that I’ve never seen such heavy downpours as we experienced during our visit. However, it all seemed to add to the novelty value for our visitors and Edinburgh proved to be their most favourite of all the places we visited in Britain.

Dolly’s top 5 suggestions for  things to do in Edinburgh:

1. Eat Haggis, Neeps and Tatties with Whiskey Cream Sauce at The Last Drop Tavern in Edinburgh’s historical Grassmarket.

2. Take a tour around The Real Mary King’s Close, a forgotten street from the 17th Century recently discovered buried beneath the Royal Mile.

3. Walk the Royal Mile from Edinburgh Castle to Holyrood Palace and the controversially design Scottish Parliament Building.

4. See the Scottish Crown Jewels and St Margaret’s Chapel (built in 1130 and Edinburgh’s oldest building) at the City’s most famous tourist attraction, Edinburgh Castle.

5. Shop ’til you drop in Edinburgh’s busiest shopping district, Princes Street.

Now, for a bit about the clothes ;). I love scripted items and lately designers seem to be offering us more of them and with multi-component scripting giving more flexibility to co-ordinate and create new looks. A number of the items included in this post fall into the latter category including the Cherry Hannah Vintage Messenger Bag which comes with 6 fabric options, 2 leather options, and multiple buttons to play with. Also featured are the Periquita Mary Square Shoes which have 18 shoe and 9 button colours to choose from. Periquita shoes are unmistakeably gorgeous with their quirky shapes and now all of them come with scripted colour options too… happy days!

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.
