2012 Color Challenge: Week 3 - Electric Indigo
Electric Indigo was a fun color to do. I immediately knew I wanted to use a Blue Blood dress - her colors are always so vibrant against the rich blacks of her designs that the electric is completely obvious and totally gorgeous. This is one of the many fatpacks lingering in my inventory that I opened just to pull out this dress - and even not remembering which is which (you don't want to know what my inventory looks like; I have piles of unopened boxes) and - unsurprisingly - I completely adored what it looked like. Like all of her dresses, the fabric layers are on every level, and surprisingly only the skirt is prim! All of that detailing on the neck and wrists - all drawn by Ghanima of Blue Blood and all gorgeous. The stockings are also included, and I adore the richness of the color which you can clearly see in these pictures.
I paired up up the dress with a pair of gorgeous, winged boots from Favole with lacing up the back. One thing I like about Favole's shoes is they really are unique as well as being strikingly gothic! The only other accessory this time, beside the usual suspects, is a hat from VC Designs that I totally expect I got on a hunt of some sort in the past. Sometimes I think I really should mark things better so I could tell you where they came from! It's totally cute, though, isn't it? With a little bit of lace on the front and some flowers along the brim. Really, the dress doesn't need much embellishment, though, so I kept it simple.
We're taking a running step off into unique and terrifying colors for this year, which really makes me happy. As everyone who knows me at all knows that brilliant and bright colors are my favorite - I love the bright, the implausible, the as-close-to-a-rainbow-as-possible. I tried to highlight and offset this brightness, but I was really frustrated no only by some new problems between my browser and second life (slplugin not working? Can I strangle someone now?), but with my desire for something I couldn't find in Second Life but that I suspected must be somewhere! A neon, modern, digital world. All of the futuristic sims I found were emphasizing the dirty dystopias of the future, and lacked the clean, metallic glow I was seeking. So I ended up in the wild again - which I suppose is where faeries belong, but still. Frustrating.
