One of my favorite things is to take fantasy elements and try to make them work for my ethnic looks. I get saddened when I see written content, blatantly stating that certain genres of characters should only be of certain body types and skin tones. I will admit, that before coming an official blogger for the Medieval & Fantasy Grid Crier group, my styles fell in 3 categories. Modern, Bumble Bee/Panda or Drow. When I was a drow, I was often the dark ashen skin colour. My Bumble Bee and Panda Girl looks were always with my regular dark toned skin. I will admit that I would go ethnically asian every once in a while. There was one skin maker in particular that I enjoyed, so would get her stuff for kicks every once in a while. I don’t tend to like looking at the traditional geisha looks on dark skin, that does seem really odd to me. I will wear other asian inspired clothing as I normally am though.
This is just random blabbery, for no particular reason. I haven’t been bashed or anything.
I took these shots at one of my favorite places in second life. It’s called The Outer Garden, and they just completed a reworking of 2 of their garden levels. So I decided to go exploring. I fell in love with this one little area off the main track, and decided to do a mini, on location shoot for today’s post.
Adoness is at Hair Fair this year, with 3 new styles. I chose to show you my favorite of the selections, which made me feel all warrior woman. It is a mixed mesh style, with the braid being rigged, but the upper part of the hair being modifiable, which is super nice if you like wearing mesh heads. I just used the default shaved hairbase in the hud of my Catwa head, and tinted it to make sense with the hair.
A portion of all hairs sold at Hair Fair go to Wigs for Kids, so even if you don’t pick up this Adoness style, it is worth it to take a browse of the whole event.
