I’ve told you before about my ‘alts’, ‘Adam & Eve’?
I don’t need to roll them out or use them very often…generally it’s an ’emergency’ situation when I need a different look because I can’t raise anyone inworld who’ll pose for me, when I can’t pre-plan Harry or Diane using one of their own models, or whatever.
And I’ve also told you about the need to ‘tweak’ my own look at the end of each year and re-invent for the forthcoming year? I’ve tried that this year, and found myself resorting to the familiar old Ella, because I don’t feel overly needy to adopt a radical new look. But with the wonderful gifts around, I wondered if it might be possible to reinvent Eve for 2014.
I started off at Vogue, where they’re doing 2014 mesh tank tops, free (along with a Santa hat and Christmas dress as of 30/12/13…for how much longer, who knows?) but I’m guessing the 2014 tank will still be available when this post is finally published on New year’s Eve, so there’s still time to snag it for a party tonight!
And as I’ve appeared to give ‘Eve’ L$7 at some point in her life, I decided now might be the time to spend it, and also determine that that is her entire ‘allowance’ for this year 🙂
And with that it was off to Pr!tty, to grab some hair they’ve going for L$1, complete with 3 different huds for different colours. A quick stopover at Foxbase Alpha (hmm! now I know who’ll be soundtracking the party at our house on December 31st) to try ’em on, and then back to a whirlwind whistle-stop tour of New year freebies, always with one eye on what fits the bill as ‘naturist’ style clothing. In other words, there’s lots of ballgowns out there right now for tonight’s parties, but not a lot of need for me to buy, as I can’t conveivably use them for ‘Eve’ photoshoots in the future!
OK. Now that’s all done…back to Foxbase Beta 😉 for a fitting session…
From there, to Pink Hustler to pick up yet another free hairdo! (what is it about ‘pink’ themed shops and terrific freebies?). And then to Fishy Strawberry to pick up even more mesh tanks (6 colours…each one free!)
Time to part with another dollar! At Miss C‘s you’ll find a New Year gift hairdo, an undo, for that price.
And, phew!, that’s as much shopping I’ve done in a single trip since I was, well, a noob.
Finally, I did a little bit of tweaking at Eve’s shape and face because, well, I’ve never really bothered with making her ‘hot’. Indeed, looking at her when I started this, two hours ago, she was an ugly little thing! 🙂
Now, I’m not finished yet 🙂
Having demonstrated what can be achieved with a couple of hours, chasing down links that are constantly upgraded on the SL Style Daily Wire, I hope I’ve demonstrated what can be achieved for ‘free’ (or two dollars…a sum guaranteed to ensure ‘me love you long time’ 😉 ).
There will be a further part to this reinvention of Eve, tomorrow, as I then attempt to demonstrate what is achievable with a bit of a limited budget, perhaps L$500? Join me then while we continue to ‘upgrade’ Eve, and make her fit for purpose in 2014.
