2012 Color Challenge: Week 17 - Shuttle Gray
I am very late with this week's color challenge - in fact I doubt I'll finalize this before midnight - but I've been completely swamped with Fantasy Faire pictures. Shuttle Gray is an odd name for a color, but kind of a fun one to play with. I ended up taking the Dove Translucent Fantasy Faire Donation (only available for the life of the faire) and tinted it a darker gray. This is a petite avatar, and a really gorgeous design. The skin is also available in regular size, and if we're lucky Fallen Gods will release the other colors in petite, too. The texturing is like feathers; while it can look natural, it can also look slightly shiny and artistic, like a statue. I'm hoping to be able to put together a look that takes advantages of the unnaturality of it sometime soon.
The outfit I'm wearing is a new petite release from De La Soul. I have it on good authority - his - that pretty much his entire inventory is shrinking in the wash, and one of the first things to get tiny was his amazing gypsy Outfit. What's completely awesome is that the HUD color changes for the full sized outfit ALSO work for the petite, so you only have to buy each one once! I have a bunch of different looks, but for Shuttle Gray I aimed for a bunch of different textures of gray, and I think it works really well with my skin. The eyes are also from De La Soul, and are fitted for petites.
My amazing moth wings are another release from Skinthesis, and they really make me happy. She released a metric ton of moth wings; I can only imagine she was out nights a lot to bag this many wings! I have an entire pile of Skinthesis releases, so expect to see many more petite things and moth wings in the future. I added in one of my favorite hairstyles from Wasabi Pills - Monique has this adorable braid and long hair which just makes me incredibly happy. I have it in full and petite size, and I enjoy it on any shape and size. The boots are form a new-to-me store called KaiAna, which has a whole lot of different petite shoes. Shoes are probably the hardest thing to find little, and these are a real bargain.
