Circus Dolly

October 23, 2008

soft chilly mood

I love this outfit. I feel pretty and soft, wild and edgy, girly, untamed and somewhat strange. The contrast is what I live for. You could very easily take this dress and create a proper, pinned-back, girlish dolly, with a big bow tied up in her curly Qs. I myself would rather take it to a different place.

Nonko makes some of my favorite Kimonos and Lolita dresses in SL. Their lush colors, unique patterns, cute ruffles and feminine touches…they had me the moment I set my eyes upon them. I’ve switched out the shoes to something more extreme- I have to say, I really adore super high, ball-of-the-foot-aching, ballet heels. There’s something so pretty and so wacky about them, and I’m always looking for more. The hair has got to be one of my all-time favorites, ever. It’s huge and wild and beautiful. Nonko herself had it commissioned for her Egoist kimono. Now that is two egoist hairs that are in my wardrobe (the other being from 69), though I assure you, it is merely a coincidence. xo
