Wednesday at the Beach

Wednesday at the Beach

Once I got this outfit together, I realized I styled Wednesday Addams for the beach… which isn’t a problem, it’s just a little funny. For a closeup of this gorgeous essences skin, click over to my Flickr.

Cabin Fever

It started to feel like Spring for a little bit there, but now the bite is back in the air, and it’s just plain cold again. Too cold to be outside once I get home from work. Honestly, I’m a little worried about what the rest of the month is going to hold weather wise. We’ve had a late February/early March blizzard before…

Watching

What was I doing before I started to sit by the window? Mostly roasting marshmallows.

Exorcising?

Remember, in the 80s and early 90s, when exercise was all about aerobics so you’d go and be in these outfits and then dance around to music and you looked ridiculous, but everyone looked ridiculous in unison? No, seriously though, it happened. It still happens some places in New Jersey. (I’m not mocking Jersey, I love Jersey, and part of what I love about it is that some things never changed. These are often things that are dear to me, which is why I love them instead of thinking WTF why won’t they just change already?!?!)

Dance like a...

Anyway, rocking out is almost as important as standing around trying to look like you’re doing something so that the crazed instructor at the front of the room won’t scream at you. What? You didn’t have those kind of aerobics instructors? Clearly your workout was not going to be effective.

This is a stretch

NB: I am a HUGE dork. I dork out over the oddest things. I know that, I’ve accepted that, and I’ve moved on. If you don’t want to read about my dorkiness over color names, the styling credits are at the bottom of the page, and more pics can be found on Flickr.

Waiting

Sometimes you wait and wait and wait…

Impatient

just to be able to escape at the very last second.

Which way out?

Sunshine? Check. Beach? Check. Cute outfit? Check. Place to sit and wait for fireworks because it is so oppressively hot? Hmm… maybe there’s something behind the next set of palm trees….

Practing Elegance

I had this long thing where I was going to show off all these really cool dance poses and make a narrative out of it, but as I was re-reading it, I realized I really wanted to talk about the stuff in the pictures.

Sometimes I see something and it’s like the designer reached inside my brain, took out an idea and plopped it on the grid – and sometimes they do it with a whole look. I generally try not to put together a whole outfit from one place (unless it’s a set or a costume or something), but when it seems like it was plucked out of my head, I’m not going to question, I’m just going to wear it! Seriously though, I’m a little worried that Nena Janus has developed mind reading abilities…there is some weird stuff floating around in my head. (Oh, like there’s not weird stuff in everyone’s head.)

Practicing Elegance

Ok, so why am I so excited about this outfit? When I joined Second Life, I didn’t really understand what it was, but I had these visions of a little ballerina avatar dancing across my screen. Dancing is something I have always loved, but for lots of reasons it was something I couldn’t pursue. So, hey, if I could do it in a virtual world, that would be awesome. Long story short, I had a hard time finding anything dance related (ballet or otherwise) that wasn’t… wasn’t what I wanted it to be. Does that make sense? Then I found this really cool store called SPIRIT. It was the first place I had found that had any of the things I was looking for in clothing and poses/animations, and I was SO excited. Since then, a lot more “dancewear” and a ton more dance poses have come out on the grid, and most of it has ended up in my inventory, but SPIRIT is always going to be special.

Perspective

Maybe you just never forget the first creator who reached inside your head?
