2012 Color Challenge: Week 18 - Thistle

2012-04-29 Thistle_014

Thistle is the next Color Challenge, and this time - instead of waiting for the last minute - I decided to pull out a new petite from Skinthesis. One of her recent releases is an amazing slew of colored petites, 24 in total. One was even named Thistle! My hair is Orchid from Wasabi Pills, a little brighter - which I thought was sort of appropriate. I love the butterfly mask on all of these skins; each comes with a white and dark masque along with a purple one to represent Relay For Life. I chose the white masque here to match this amazing release from Angelwing, which comes with a pose-inspiring staff. I had to adjust the staff quite a bit in order to fit it in the petite hand, but once I did it really was realistic with very little effort - as you can see in the pictures I took.

I'm truly falling in love with the petite effect, though I doubt I'll ever make it a full time sort of thing. There's something very appealing about being small in a large world, though, and so many of my favorite creators have shifted over to making petite things that it really feels like I'm not leaving much behind me. Having a reason to stop and enjoy all of the little things in Second Life is not to be underestimated, though; even though I may be small, I'm also fiercely dedicated to wringing the most out of my time.
