Ok so. I’m a shape snob. Maybe because I’m a shape designer. When I came back to SL in January it was a HUGE learning curve to nudge those sliders for bento heads, but I finally got it figured out…and then I rediscovered my shape snobbery.
As a sponsored blogger for the Altamura group (with awesome benefits of receiving the newest releases of bento heads and bodies) we are gifted a weekly release of mesh head, body, makeup, shape, etc. to promote for Altamura. I admittedly have a hard time with the shape releases because….have you met me? I’m a shape snob….
The release this week is the Russian Shape for Altamura group by .Viki. available at Marketplace, and I was pleasantly surprised by how in LOVE with this shape I was when I started preparing for this post.
The curves begged for lingerie, and the new Poppy Fashion release for the ROMP: Elegant Kink event worked perfectly. Lola top, panties and heels…I’m not sure why I was so surprised because Poppy boasts the amazing Roslin Petion of Luxuria lingerie brand at the helm of textures for Poppy Fashion. Yes. I’m blonde. Forgive me.
This post is about embracing the unexpected. And this post is a celebration of why I LOVE blogging in SL. It’s not my shape, and not my usual bento head. It’s about a beautiful discovery, and really isn’t that was SecondLife is about? Discovering the beauty in something new? And I’m feeling like a criminal because I’m “stealing” someone else’s shape creation and it feels SO good. 🙂
