Wider, baby, smiling, you’ve just made a million.
(It’s the Tin Tin Out remix, naturally, my sartorial darlings. YouTube-y-ness at the end of the post, so you can chairdance alongside me.)
The things that a song will inspire, eh?
Ostensibly, this all began with a hunt for— No wait, this needs a humorous movie-like title: The Hunt for Red
Octob… Lipstick. Because, well, this song, and the fact that the Lelutka Andrea Bento mesh head takes so beautifully to lipstick. And boy did I find a lippy that I loved (among the… several that I now own) by Used Abused. And after that there was nothing left to do but glam it the hell up, right?
This suit by Meva is out at the current Men Only Monthly round, and it’s for Signature only. However, if you don’t wear the midriff straps, it will fit on the Slink body (and probably the Jake body, too). I went through a few applier tops until I found a combination from [email protected] (one fishnet selection, plus the straps-only section of a bustier applier that I—you guessed it—bought only for that straps section).
The bracers are old ones by Titzuki. No longer available, I snapped them up during the closeout sale before Titzuki rebranded as FAKEIKON. I love how the arm straps mirror the straps on the body. And then, if we pull out to the whole outfit, we can see something that I didn’t even realise I’d done until I was looking at the uploads on Flickr:
Fishnet matchy-matchy! Topped and tailed with the stuff, thanks to these boots (possibly no longer available) that I picked up a few years ago from Wicca’s Wardrobe. Yes, they’re female boots. Has that ever stopped me before? Nope. And even the pattern on those amazing Gaga-glam shades from Since 1975 looks kinda fishnet-ish. So I guess I achieved unconscious cohesiveness today. Gotta love the rare occasions when that happens.
Hair by Drot, from a beanie/hair package that (thankfully) also included the hair only, since I’m picky about beanies. Not many of them suit Skell.
