So, I was lying in bed last night, waiting to go asleep and had a song someone was singing to me yesterday (somewhat annoyingly) stuck in my head. If you’ve seen the title and recognise it them you know exactly what I mean. Anyways, I was sitting there thinking random thoughts until I touched upon one….what if Star Trek were a porno?
This is me, myself and I acting out that very er…I’d like to say fantasy? lol. This is sounding more and more like a geeky metaphor for self love (get your minds out of the gutter!) but yes, that is genuinely me in three different guises. I’ve done this for a couple of reasons: 1. it’s funny 2. Because I can 3. To display both all shades of this beautifully made and generously given freebie by +NODe and a tip given to me by my friend Anne-Elizabeth quite some time ago. They’ve been languishing in my inventory and, I’ve been threatening to do something truly geeky so here it is!
The ‘Crew’ are wearing…
Uniforms: NODe+ Modulate uniforms (0L no group join!)
All right. So what helps me when I’m putting these outfits together is imagining a little bit of a story behind each of the ‘characters’ I’m modeling. I am a storyteller and writer in my ‘other’ life before anything else, so I suppose it carries over to second life too . So, boys and girls, brace yourselves. Here is Lieutenant Allura…
Yes, we’ve all seen the Curio skins. We’ve all seen the Truth hair. However, the combination of both the gorgeous dark Bean skin by Curio and the January subscribo hair from Truth is just another example of how striking some of these freebies can actually be. I’d also like to point out the ikon eyes here too. Although these are past group gifts, IKON generously give away sets of these eyes in different colours and styles on the first weekend of every month. The heels you see me wearing are part of an outfit featured in FabFree by Cake and are a free January group gift. So..hair (0L). Skin…(0L) Shoes…(0L) outfit…(oL) eyes…(ol). There really is no excuse to look like crap in SL these days. It’s a matter of knowing how and where these things are. So if you have a friend in serious need of a makeover, slip ’em my number. Allura will sort you out 😉
‘Allura’ is wearing….
Heels: [[>Cake<]] january group gift (0L)
Skin and lipstick: Curio Bean Midnight 2 Frex (0l – Gala and Rita announcements group in notices)
ring: Grasp Lily Ring (50L group joining fee)
Hair: Truth January subscribo gift
Eyes: IKON Eternal eyes mesa (past group gift, no longer free)
Glasses: Axl pro glasses (marketplace 1L)
As you might have noticed, my ‘models’ are named after certain members of Star Trek. The original, none of this new fangled crap (cough…on the set of Voyager…cough). These uniforms reminded me of the good old days of Captain Kirk and his crew: short, slutty and fabulous! Allura is a take on a ‘vulcan’ and I’m going to show you how I adjusted got these cute little elven ears for 5L.
To the right, you can see very barely the outline of my ‘vulcan’ ears. These can (and knowing me, probably will) be used as vulcan ears for darker skins. The ears themselves are just about right for the price, but that isn’t to say you can write them off. The sculpts are nice, neat and can be adjusted just behind most ear shapes. They’re mod and tintable. The add button is your friend. If you want earrings to go with them…just hit add and adjust where you like. Simples. The ring you can see above is another fine example of how detailed Grasp’s products are. This is one of many group gifts you can pick up for 50L and, bar Earthstones, in my opinion, one of the best jewelry and accessory retailers out there.
Ears: Chi Seid elf ears (5L marketplace)
Ring: Lily ring group gift Grasp (50L join fee)
This is Lieutenant Fruitloop. In contrast to Allura, Fruitloop isn’t sexy, she isn’t very logical and well, I called her such purely because she looks like a person you don’t want to give a bag of sugar to. She’s wearing a pair of lovely boots from beemake (which, in hindsight, my dippy engineer should have worn XP), stockings from Requiem and freebie hair from Rumina. Also featured is this gorgeous caramel skin from MOJO, their Santa skin, previously featured.
‘Fruitloop’ is wearing…
Skin: MOJO group gift (0L)
Hair: Rumina styles pony tail (0L)
Gloves: Grasp gloves (50L joining fee – Group gift)
Boots: **Bee make** engineer boots gift (0L)
Glasses: [Umeboshi] Castor glasses (10L or luckyboard)
Stockings: Requiem special addition stockings (part of a freebie lingerie set)
Eyes: Dead Apples group gift (0L)
Finally, this is Lieutenant Commander Totty, our engineer. Giggity. You might recognise her as a person masquerading as a kitty cat in my earlier blog posts, but she looked too adorable in this getup that I had to XP It’s also a chance for me to show off one of my favourite dollarbies, this pretty tintable bow from Y&R. I have tinted this to suit my outfit but since the original is quite a neutral colour, you’re free to play around with it as much as you like since it is both mod and very versatile You can also get a better look at ‘Totty’s ‘ tights/pantyhose and pumps in the first pic of the post. And yes, I have flogged Lo*momo until I am blue in the face, but I love them. You should too. If you haven’t popped down to see them, off you pop ^^
