POE6 Post 19 Dressed by Lexi, Chop Zuey, MALT, Joyus Living
O have been Dressed by Lexi – Lexi Roxan. Love the green. Really feeling the green. I am calm … notice how Christmas is red as in frenzied, heightened out of control emotions and then green calm and peaceful … am I the only one who sees this theme as being schizophrenic? And clearly the parents and the kids particularly are on the red side and …. hmmm … who is on the green side? Besides Silent Night who is calm???
Belle Roussel of Chop Zuey takes the green theme into the ethereal and adds blue and creates this lovely holiday jewellery set for your special dates or your favourite TV show, or even you favourite chips and dips and eggnog … any one of those would be worthy.
Khea Karas of Malt offers this gorgeous dinner ring which goes with everything because you know what … it is white and white is a beautiful colour and it goes with everything and is virginal and pure and does not drive people to madness or sleep.
Leandro Malaspina of LM Malaspina has created this stunning cabinet that makes you start talking proper English and typing with punctuation and capitals. AH-mazing. I told the Schmelf if I even think I see a tiny fingerprint on that cabinet he is gone … I don’t care what Santa or Sequoia says … some things are just off limits.
Ok I am going to have to digress momentarily from your regular show of Christmas (hunt) tips and hints and share something in the realm of “OMG, I cannot believe he just said that!” Think of it kind of like when the news interrupts your favourite show to tell you something a politician just did only don’t swear at the computer because it is still ME … you still get ME … it is just I am another favourite show interrupting this favourite show.
I was doing this picture and my hubby stops by the computer, coffee in hand, resting the other one on the back of my chair, watching me and he says that Bliss is looking a little pale, she should probably get a bit more sun. So I asked him what he wanted me to do … put a sun lamp on the computer?
He then leaned closer to the computer screen and said, “Oh I see the problem,” and pointed at her white shoes and said, “Hasn’t it already been Labour Day in the States?”
And he “tsked” me.
What man doesn’t know that he NEVER quotes fashion rules back to his wife … EVER?
So I parroted him and said, “Ya well … you do understand that SL is not REAL right?”
And he looked me straight in the eye and said, “Yes but good fashion rules should be honoured even in make believe. It’s part of the code.”
He’s not allowed to have snappy comebacks. I don’t know who told him that role reversal was allowed but that person should be shot.
Hiya again… hope the new year as been kind to you this far. I thought I would make a last POE5 instalment while the hunt is still on. To be perfectly honest I could probably spend weeks combining, recombining and modding for further recombination with the enormous pile of clothes. I might just do that but this is not the time for that, so I’ll just quickly introduce you to a couple of more peeps I found among the folders.
Again, I’ll give the stores but direct you to the official hunt hint list for SLURLS.Earring: Part of #182 Dressed by LexiJacket and Pants: Part of the male gift at #156 *INNUENDO* Italian Style.Sweater ‘dress’ with belt: Part of the fem gift at #156 *INNUENDO* Italian Style.Shoes: Part of the male gift at #24 Felicia’s Fashion.Pose (lolly included): From #126 Exposeur. Lolly is included.A couple of close ups so you can see a bit more detail. There’s style and some nice craftsmanship here, indeed!I agree with Dr Who that bow ties are cool… Bow tie: Belonging to gift at #75 Miss Darcy. Jacket: #134 Eshi Otawara. An absolute in the Awesome! category! Pants: Part of #129 New York Couture. Slightly darkened… oh, how I love mod perms! Bangles: Part of #87 Baboom.Ring: #153 Designs by Sebastian. Can’t really see it but you would if it wasn’t there ^^ Ear studs: Part of #147 Stars! Not worried to showing them in this post. They are the red ruby version of the ones I wore in my last post. An extra bonus with these studs are that they’re copy/mod… meaning they can be used as a template for other colours if you can make or find the textures. They’re no trans, of course, so that’s for personal pleasures only. Most definitely an Awesome! Thank you! Pose: Part of the gift at #44 The Muse Poses.Looking back and completing my statistics of the CLOTHES gifts, I found that 93% of the participating stores had fem gifts while 29% had stuff for guys. There was only a couple of participating stores with exclusive male stuff, compared with 71% with fem. Almost all of the male stuff consequently comes from stores providing for both genders. If I stretch myself to include gifts that include details I can recycle in one way or another, the corresponding number for andro would be 49% of participating stores… no exclusive ones, though. These statistics have to taken with a pinch of salt, however. I’ve been shuffling folders back and forth for days now, plus I know my collection isn’t complete, so there’s a steady growing margin of error.The statistics seem a bit on the gloomy side for guys. The quality of some of the male gifts would still make me recommend this hunt to men, however. I can only talk about the clothes part, but the quality of some of the gifts and taking the price into consideration, i.e. some of your time and none of your lindens, still makes the hunt worth the effort.I don’t think there’s any discrimination against men here. SL shopping is dominated by women and these results probably just reflect the relative ratios in the industry. Maybe a special ‘guy list’ with hints to the stores with ‘guy’ or ‘unisex’ gifts could be in order, however, as not scare the boys away by having them hunt for evening gowns – THAT is a narrow market for men, indeed.I think I must take the time to make a very last post on this hunt, this is such fun. Again, a huge THANK YOU to everyone that made this hunt possible!!!The sim where I took the photos for this and the last post is the art sim Song Bird.Until next time, take care and have fun! *Dives back into the folders*
