I don’t do cutesy. Or, at least, not easily. Some friends of mine were talking about it on Plurk the other day. And while some people are able to pull off the cutesy look, I am not one of those people. Apparently I don’t have the patience to wipe out my grid-lines either, or download the new SL Beta Viewer. Ah well, one thing at a time.
So, in an attempt to break out of my serious mode (and also get back into blogging since I’ve been MIA for awhile…) I took a trip to The Arcade Gacha Event, which is chock full of all kinds of cute stuff.
Perhaps the Gacha gods had heard that I don’t do cutesy either, but they seemed to agree with me, bestowing me with pale beautiful somber Renee – Sinless skin from Glam Affair, Juliet lilac hair and hat from Bonne Chance, a complete and very lovely outfit from Mon Cheri including the shirt, cardigan, shorts, leggings, and boots in teal, Insufferable Dastard contacts in Aqua, afk Headphone by Iruco, Secret Store’s Tiny Satchel in Coral Delight, !bang mini Sassy poses, and the Love Teddy Bear necklace in Pink by MG (which really is rather cute and a nice contrast to my look).
Oh so here’s a pet peeve: Designers that don’t put a landmark to their store in with their items, or a notecard telling about their store or brand. I have no idea who “MG” is thought I suspect it’s Maxi Gossamer. I could go back to the Arcade event and look closer at the signage to see, but once I got home and un-boxed everything and tried it on and fumbled around with poses and windlight settings to take a few pictures, I was in no mood to go back sleuthing to figure it out or to get SLURLS to add into my post for other people to be able to go shopping to find items from these creators later.
A simple request… if you have pride in the things you create and want people to be able to find you and buy more things… drop a notecard or landmark in with your creations. /end rant and really sorry that sounded a bit ungrateful. I love that creators offer quality items at really great prices at things like the Gacha Event at The Arcade. I really do! Just trying to do my part to help and maybe dropping a lil hint here and there might in some way help.
