Get Wet on a Weekday

Get Wet on a Weekday

I was lucky enough to be given early access to Uber a few hours ago, and on landing the inner circle literally floored me. I had to lay down to recover once I saw this boho fish shack collection by DRD. There was me laying the ground, if I had a brown paper bag I would have been breathing into it. If you haven’t realised yet I am water, ocean, fishy obsessed. This, however, does not mean just putting a fish on something, or a dolphin or waves will have me going giddy all the time – most of the time – but not all the time. But something like this set, well damn there is no amount of descriptive words that could truly do it justice. It is a big set, and well worth its price tag, but you can also purchase it in parts if you are on a budget or only feel the need for bits of it – that last part to me means you are crazy but not really judging, just a little judging. While I don’t completely lose myself in the shack set, there are other things there too, and it took a long turn around the place for me to get as much as I could carry.

Word of warning, I have discovered that my usual wear system layers to shop in and then try everything on and leave on the last demo you had on while you continue is not always safe, especially if you do not turn the layers back on. Today I experienced my first ‘TIMER DEMO’ mishap and wasn’t that pleasant! walking around standing in front of a booth and bam NAKED! next to a nice couple. I had actually even purchased the demo item I was wearing, but I had more shopping to do, but ending up naked from a timer demo is not cool, events are huge and they are laggy in some cases, and it is easier to stay in the demo until you change to the next demo. I understand the want to not have people use the demo for pics or whatever the case may be, but I for one would much prefer you attach a prim than have me end up naked in public…lesson learned though to return myself to my layered state before continuing.

Continue I did, picking up this gorgeous bikini by Slink that is a guest of the lovely Baiastice booth this round. The theme of the event is Summer Lovin and I sure had me a blast. This swimsuit is called Athena and with the right lighting has a perfectly shiny and somewhat wet look to it, which just worked perfectly with the droplets effect that comes with my body HUD and then the fantastic wet look hair by Mina that is an interactive style that actually gets wet from SL water. You even get a hairdryer that will blow it dry for you. Mina has actually also updated the hair to include a more versatile hud for picture taking so if not near the water you can still put it into a wet state, and it even has water particles that drip of it, so much fun. It is a system that was created by Salt & Pepper and they did a collaboration together, there is also a dress I picked up at Uber that goes wet also when worn in water.

The shoes I am wearing are by Reign also at Uber and have three options, flat, platform and tiptoe so can be worn with flat and high feet. The straps and soles have texture change options and they are nice rubbery soles so you don’t misstep when wet and walking around uneven surfaces.
