Monday Meme: SL Movie Poster Challenge

Gentlemen Prefer Fae

I was honestly stymied for a poster to imitate for Strawberry's Meme this Monday, casting around through some of my favorite movies, all of which seemed ludicrously difficult and not quite worth it, being both something I couldn't photograph in Second Life and nothing terribly iconic or amazing. And then I thought of Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, which had both an iconic poster and could be mimicked pretty quickly. My initial thought was to make several pieces, but what I ended up making was a single backdrop and then posing in front of it - clearly not the poses Russell and Monroe were in, nor the same clothing, but I did go for a similar style - burlesque - and similar kinds of cheesecake poses to show off both sides of one of my favorite Solange outfits. The second shared thing I'm wearing are these awesome stilettos from G Field which I was reminded of in a discussion of whether there was a simple stiletto in Second Life. I had remember this, and was all set to send a notecard to G Field's creator asking if it could be made sans rose, when I realized the rose is optional - on Deoridhe it's showing, and Zoe has the streamlined roseless shoe. Clearly, the one walking home with the diamonds and the man is Deoridhe, because Gentlemen Prefer Fae.

  1. I love that you went vintage!

  2. OH! Those are my go-to pumps! And I rarely wear the rose, either. I think I ended up with the pair at a time :(

  3. So brilliantly done! Love how you took the idea and ran with it and yes the vintage really adds to it. Thank you for playing again! <3

  4. I'm so glad you all like it. I considered a few other movies, but all the protagonists were brunette, and I wanted to be a blond, and then I thought of this movie and how unexpectedly feminist I found it, and here we are. 8D Thanks for all the kinds words.
