Today I took a break for three hours and watched the Olympics Opening ceremony with Whimsy Winx. The United Kingdom did an incredible job at creating an amazing event. There was a few tears shed my end, and lots of goosebumps, I was really moved by the fact that this is the first ever Olympics that all nations had a female competitor, not just because it is the first year they qualified, but because their countries in the past did not allow it. I will laugh for days at Whimsy declaring that the woman that was declared the ‘Champion of Earth’ during the carrying of the Olympic flag was not wearing a cape, and she wanted to take the gold from the UK teams uniforms and make her one. All in all it was very enjoyable, I did unfortunately miss the first part of it, so missed Duran Duran and their video they shot in Second Life for the event, but I am sure it will be online eventually.
I was all hyped up and rawr, so the pics ended up with a rock n roll kind of look happening. Clawtooth at Hair Fair 2012 did wonderful long styles in mesh, and they are really must haves from the fair. The braided style Going Steady is super pretty, but with the loose tendrils framing the face it is fierce as well. There is a second braided style, very similar to the first, but with a few whispier parts and more face covering pieces – not shown. Then you have Serendipity and Starlight, both long over one shoulder styles, one with a pompadour top to it which is very rockabilly influenced and so cool.
With all this rock n roll comes the need for leather pants, and these new Zoey mesh ones from Erratic are stunners. The shape, the texture work and the gold zippers are great, I would love it if there was a silver zipper option, but that’s just greed. They come in standard sizes and the fit is fantastic. Make sure you check them and other new mesh items out while you are there.
