A Hint of Vintage

January 11, 2009

This look isn’t exactly new. Well, its outdated by a couple of days cause i was simply lazy to blog. Again, the inspiration is non other than out little gossip girl vixen, Blair.

Mixing vintage and mordern elements in her clothing has always been Blair’s signiture style. The Ivalde advert gift 7, Yelena, seem perfect for this occasion. I was in love with it the minute i saw it on Ding’s lovely blog. The texture was simply lovely, imitating a glitter-ing coat. The collar, skirt and sleeves are scrulpted increased my love for it tenfolds. I love it when designers make full use of scrulpted prisms and admire them for their ability in making scrupties. I’ve ever read some tutorials about it and trust me, its no easy feat getting that “ball” into such delicate and lovely shapes. This coat would definitely find its way to the closet of Miss Waldorf. Its a pity the coat isn’t avaliable anymore for those who missed it. *sad face*

In order to balance the skirt, I did not wear all the upper arm prims,the base prim and shrunk the lower arm prisms to get a “tight fit”. The skirt contributes to the “mordern” aspect of this look. The “skirt” is a modification of a cupcake dress prim that I did eons ago. In summary what I did was removed the bottom 2 layers of ruffles, move them downwards and fit it nicely to the waist area. Oh, and I shorten the length of the glitch pants provided. I highly recommend good prim modification skills before attempting this feat. Oh, and make sure you have at least 150 prisms avaliable for the skirt to rez :) Ooohh the shoes! I found them in my inventory while searching for boots? Its a old limited freebie from the shop laughing academy I got in my early days… I fell in love with the gold buttons on the sides. Lovely Lovely! I’m not sure if the shop is still around though. Its one of those shops you tp in for nice stuff and never go back again. bleh! shame on this blogger :(

School Bells

January 3, 2009

School Starting and I’m trying to squeeze in as much SL, photoshopping, outings and sleep into the next 2 days. Today’s outift was inspired by the Vivian Hsu Cover of “ai nu sheng Girl” (I am still unsure if its Girl ai nu sheng or ai nu sheng girl. I’m just gonna call it the latter as the former translates to girl loves girl which seems rather wrong to me :P) It’s the typical badgirl/school-like outfit, including the vest, the necessary mini skirt and the tie. The skirt was a dollarbie I picked from Gypsy Soul and its flawless. I just love how the texture flows from the glitch pants to the prim, making the velvet like texture of the skirt appearing smooth and flowy, even at the default SL windlight settings. It’s not so obvious with this pose due to the usual annoying way prims flow when sitting. However, I must say it certainly is the best dollarbie skirt I’ve ever picked. Hurry to get it before it’s gone!
