The other day I was talking to Xamirus aka Napoleon aka my partner extraordinaire about fashion blogging in second life. While showing him a few of my favorite sites, I couldn’t help but hear a whole lot of exasperated sighs on the other end of the line. “What is wrong?” I asked him. “Can’t you see it?” he exclaims. “These bloggers wear way too many layers. They have a jacket on top of a jacket on top of a sweater on top of a shirt on top of a pair of shorts over a pair of jeans and then about a billion accessories too.” After several minutes of laughter, he ended his “assessment” by saying, “Come on now. You watch Project Runway – Michael Kors would be blasting these people for trying too hard!”
Yeah, he is probably right. If I walked around Austin in some of the outfits I feature in my SL blog, I would get a few raised eyebrows. But that’s the point of SL right? It’s not real, its fantasy and a pretty picture world of what you could be if you lived in computer. So to all you bloggers out there who throw away the reality in search of fantasy – I salute you.
Okay about the outfit: Yeah, the look really has absolutely nothing to do with what I am talking about here, well kind of. It does have a lot of layers AND the photos have a 1950s movie feel to it. It definitely is fantasy, minimal basic fantasy albeit. Plus I finally went to a gatcha festival for the first time in SLife. Woot and I have the manager of Tee*fy/LaViere to thank for that. She was super nice to me one day when I asked about an old gatcha camera - she told me about the swap groups, the after the gatcha event sales places etc. Now If only I could remember her name, *sigh*. Any who that’s all I got today. So as the norm, take care my friends and have a great second life!
