Lookbook 1

Everyone should be happy SL doesn't have smell-o-vision, as Allegory would stink- she doesn't change clothes all that often. But I do, upon occasion, end up putting together things that I really like, and may start a bit of an occasional record of particular looks I'm fond of (or, you may never see one of these again...who knows. I've still got 9/10s of the Starlust to go in my tour =p). You're likely to see a lot of ~silentsparrow~ (as I wear...a LOT of ~silentsparrow~), and of course a fair bit of my own stuff, although I'll probably only show it when mixed with other things. However...I am almost always in my platform boots, I've got a collection of footwear that I never wear!

This set all revolve around the short jacket from ~silentsparrow~'s Lottie. I really do often wear shirts, this set notwithstanding. And I managed to use poses from different posemakers for each picture, weirdly enough.

When Lottie first came out I started putting together this look- House of Munster had come out with a deathhawk not too terribly long before. Allegory's not one for dresses all that often (although she's rather fetching in Lottie), but this jacket is just perfect with the ankh detail on the back and I've had a hard time taking it off. Aconite shares the same brocade pattern, so I filched the cuffs to wear with Lottie's jacket, instead of wearing the more floaty sleeves that come with Lottie. The ~silentsparrow~ tattoos might possibly have something to do with the shirtlessness....

hyasynth's rezday party had a bloody sparrow theme, so I went inventory diving for blood appropriate ~silentsparrow~ gear (searching for "blood" found the other arm bandage). The Aconite bandage corset was an obvious choice (I considered Sweeney, but wasn't coming up with how to mix it I off the tattoos. Er, yeah, there's that shirtless reason again), and dyed the 'hawk red for the occasion. The skin, of course, was obvious- few skins other than mine feel like Allegory, most change her features (and skin tone) too much to be her, although they are quite fun for when I dress up as not-me. The pants are from the redux of House of Leaves, which was a great set when it first came around, and even better now...and I'd be wearing the jacket still if it weren't for that whole pesky tattoo thing- I shall again, of course, it's got lovely cutouts and leafiness.

My current look- I....have not seen my face in days. Which is not so helpful seeing as I'm wearing a prototype makeup to see what needs to be changed. The mask is from the Drowsy horror festival (which is AWESOME- there are a lot of really fun free and inexpensive things to take home with you, as well as awesome cute new releases, and the whole thing is put together wonderfully well, as expected, of course- set up with lots of little things to find), modded a bit- the yellow and red mask with the heart was not so Allegory- but mixed with one of the other masks, it's perfect (I <3 mod objects). Also modded are the cuffs- they are a combination of the green Lottie sleeves and the cuffs from Aconite (sleeves and jacket of Irgazine Lottie are from a special green RFL set for Babbage- I'm not sure it's still available). I've been flipping back and forth between these tattoos and the oak. acorn. & squirrel set- both are perfection. I chose these as the others are in the previous picture, and I'm already wearing so much alike. The tail is from Gritty Kitty's Fawnication set, which I've had my eye on but not been by to get since it came out...but then...oh...CSR card, you are the extra incentive I need to finally get off my ass and go to Koreshan.
