Dancing Queen Wannabe

When you’re a dancer (wannabe or full-fledged), you’ve got to have options. Either you’re not going to make it or eventually your corns, calluses and creaky joints will force you into retirement.

While I’m fresh out of ideas for a dancer’s future prospects, I have loads of other options to tell you about, starting with the extremely versatile Amber Shirt from Just BECAUSE, available at the current round of FaMESHed. Not only are there colour varieties (including additional hues with the fatpack), each shirt comes with HUD-driven options for the straps. In addition to the version I am wearing, you can add another set that wraps around your neck, or you can dispense with them completely, giving you a pretty scoop neckline. Tick the box for choices!

And if you are a dancer, you can’t be without a tip jar. [ keke ] will be releasing a set of tip jars for the upcoming new event, Le Six, opening on October 6th. These jars do not come with a tip script, but they are mod, so you can add the script of your choice. The hardest decision you’ll have to make is which one to use: they come with different sayings on the tags, with options from the traditional to the fun. Included are “Tips are appreciated – Thank you!”, “Tip here – Giving returns ten-fold :)”, “Money is the root of all evil. Cleanse yourself here”, “Tips are like hugging without all the touching” and “Please tip. My boss is a real bastard”. See what I mean about options?

Finally, the rustic screen I am using is from Flair. You get not only the triptych screen I am showing, there are three separate panels, as well. In addition, each section can be retextured with three options for the frame and the weave. The possibilities are mind-boggling! This item will be available at the “Going To The Max” event, which begins on October 3rd. In case you haven’t heard about this event, it is to assist Second Life resident and creator, Maxwell Graf, owner and creator of Rustica (in world sim/store, Marketplace). Max and his wife are being evicted from their home by family after caring for his wife’s parents until their death. With the generosity that creators in Second Life are known for, several have banded together to present an event to benefit Max and his wife, Cheryl. This event runs for only one week, so do plan to visit to help out. Another option is to go to the in world store or visit Marketplace (links above) and purchase something to assist. The location has not yet been announced, but I found information on the event on Mona Eberhardt’s bog. Keep your eyes open for the location in a couple of days. *EDIT: I found the SLurl to the event location on the ForMax Facebook page.

If you have an option to shop and help someone out, then there really is no option but to do so.

Nothing To Wear

It’s a woman’s worst nightmare: having so many choices she simply has nothing to wear.

Only one of these gowns is actually wearable, and it is a stunner. The Aja Gown by Valentina E., available at FaMESHed, will have you prepared for princesshood. The others are mannequins, but I would wear every single one of them. I racked up all of these great decor items from LAGOM at The Gacha Garden.

Thanks to my haul, I find myself with nothing to wear.

Flamingo Posse

Just having a bit of fun with this cute pose set from Fashiowl at The Liaison Collaborative. I tried to emulate the colours of the flamingos, with my top from [Aleutia] (also at TLC), shorts from JustBECAUSE at FaMESHed and sandals from fri.day at Collabor88. Sometimes it’s nice to just do a photo that makes me smile 🙂

My gorgeous hair is from Vanity Hair for Hair Fair 2017. It is the last day of Hair Fair, so if you haven’t visited yet (or want to make another dash through) you have until midnight to get your stuff together.

Don’t forget to take your posse.
