What’s in a name

What’s in a name, well today lots and lots. A few months back Dove Swanson of Long Awkward Pose asked some of us to choose a rl picture that we like the real pose in, and she would try and recreate it for us. Yesterday she released the Wonder Girls  pose set and I was so excited to see that my choice made the cut.

I decided it might be fun to do a pic with each pose; in a kind of look of the person it was named after, now I don’t know all of the people, and some that I do know I had to mix some things up, but it was my ownfun and entertaining way to cope with not being able to sleep.


Picture 1:

Hair: Raine – Kin

Skin: Clara Bow – Sin Skins

Clothes: Tip and Zero mix and match -  Triangle (Previously Ghost)

Shoes/Boots: Goth Ribbon Lace up boots – J’s

Accessories: Bandaged Kitty – Pink  Fuel

Inspired Sparrow – Material Squirrel

Poses/Animations: Wonder Girls – Achariya – LAP

Equipment: Professional Posestand and HUD – VR Foundry

It was so much fun dressing up as Achariya, I combined two old favs from Ghost that is now Triangle. The Skirt comes in handy for all sorts of fabulous looks. This pose is ideal for holding things, and the bandaged kitty from PF was an ideal blend with this look.

Hair: Love Letter to Japan II – Tiny Bird

Skin: Petal [Dark] April-Pure 1 – Gala Curio

Clothes: Nautical Set – 5th & Oxford

Shoes/Boots: Flip Flops ( has to put THONGS in just because ) – 0N (Zero Number)

Poses/Animations:  Wonder Girls – Autumn – LAP

Equipment: Professional Posestand and HUD – VR Foundry

I totally believe that Autumn would just cop a squat anywhere and take a call, a recent hair release from her own store is just adorable, and so suited to the fabulous Nautical set by Roslin Petion of 5th&Oxford (Previously not on Buffy but  Fleur). You cannot see enough of the clothing to give it justice , but take my word for it, if you are into highwaist double buttoned sailor pants, THESE are a MUST HAVE. Also must haves are the thongs on my feet, they are FREE at the horror festival at Drowsy, get them in all colours , I was so excited to find a great pair , and free just made them awesome.

Skin: Misty – League

Clothes: Jolene Lingerie & Lace Stockings – Blowpop

Shoes/Boots: Nana Heels – Enkythings

Poses/Animations: Wonder Girls – Babyhoney – LAP

Equipment: Professional Posestand and HUD – VR Foundry

This pose, and the name, what else could I shoot but Lingerie, and fine a lush lingerie it is. Recently Blowpop released this set and it’s just awesome, seriously if Annyka doesn’t keep making clothes, we will have to stage a sit in.
The lace topped stockings are sold as seperates, which is great as they come in different sheer depths and are a great price. Often you just need stockings because you have all the other pieces already.

Accessories: Paddington Tote – TRUTH

Poses/Animations: Wonder Girls – Dakota – LAP

Equipment: Professional Posestand and HUD – VR Foundry

The first time I ever saw this hair, or any hair by lamb for that matter; it was on Dakota Buck. This pose is fabulous as it has a definite, I’m waiiiiiting but I’m being very cool about it look. I mixed a lot of TRUTH items in this look, I adore the cardigan coat, big and long and wintery warm…it is so what I need right this second. If you look really hard I didn’t credit it, because you cannot buy it , but there is a sneaky touch of Savvy in there :P.

Clothes: Lace Dress – Cloudy

Shoes/Boots: Devoue Sandal – Courtisane

Accessories: Bag from Bandaged Eyes – BP*

Poses/Animations: Wonder Girls – Dahlia – LAP

5th&Oxford with their rebranding came new skins, Audrey is the name and with that comes the classy looks that Fleur in the past was reknowned for. Lips that are full and poutyful, with a lovely and delicate skin tone, semi porceline looking but with some peaches thrown in.

Also from the festival, I think I bought everything, the bag I am carrying was actually the bag the bandage eyes comes in, I thought the bag was so cute I had to wear it as an accessory.

Again by Roslin of 5th&Oxford the Second Date dress is such a sweet dress, the clothing making skills of Roslin are great, as she just recently taught herself how to make clothes, YAY Roslin you are a star. I went with green for Havers pose, I thought of Lemon but that would be too corny :P.

Yes , not often or ever would you see me in a shirt like this one, Ryker made them a while back for fits and giggles. Definitely a pose in suiting with her character, peace love and mungbeans baby. I love these jeans by the way, they were made an eon ago under her Lix label, yes Ryker made them too, I don’t know if they are even sold anywhere as they were from her old store..but you should harass her if they arent.

Another item I got at the festival was this tunic top, it is so folksy that it reminded me of the first thing Shir made, which featured an embroidered look. Yes I am loving my thongs, they are so cool, I walk around barefoot so much in RL and SL, so these will come in so handy , or feety.

Actually the first chance I have had to wear alllll the pieces to the Nizam set, it is primtastical but at my own home if anyone complained I’d have ejected them, well actually I wouldn’t the security would because they shouldn’t be in my house lol. Such an incredible set, and what better place to show diversity and your love for cultural pieces than in Second Life.
