I can't remember when I began buying and wearing Blue Blood clothing, but it was well before the advent of mesh, and probably even before the advent of the invisilayers which can make mesh flawless. Her work always straddles the line of cute and creepy, never quite slipping over to horrifying but often hinting darkly of the corpses in the closets you will never open, and this dress - a slip with a ragged hem splashed with something dark and red - is no exception. It's also a group gift; Ghanima has always been generous, and this dual set of dresses is an example of that - both are texture change via a HUD (it beeps very high pitched when you change colors, so you know you did!). It has a complicated pattern even before you take the blood into account - side panels and a belt which break them into "light" and "dark" (Blue Blood has a long history of White Gothic Lolita which is charming) and a bib in the contrasting shade - white on the dark patterns, and dark on the light patterns - over the long color panel which has five different options, including one which flirts with rainbow. The group costs 50$L to join, a slight cost for a total of twelve bloody dresses!

I See Through You

I've been looking for an outfit to add Spyralle's Genre offering this month, and couldn't resist when I saw it against my purples. This look is a combination of a large, face covering web (the lighter purple pattern with the wisps at the edges) and the forehead jewel. A HUD recolors the latter to match each of the offered colors, and also lets you change the texture of the metal base and frame for the jewel separately. I am always impressed anew by Kerryth's use of fractals in her creations, and her way of bending them around the human body, and this is a dramatic example of how fractals can be literally woven into my avatar's face. The effect is striking, and works well with further enhancements - in this case a contrasting lipstick and black eyeliner. I look forward to seeing how else Spyralle decides to play with fractals and tattoo layers; this was definitely a success, and is available at Genre until the 12th.
