It is crazy scary the kinds of things one can find in the mall these days.. from the hot pink lace cutout gloves to the hot pink and black zebra striped leg warmers, ladies and gentleman, the 80’s are sneaking in. I hit up a birthday party this past weekend where I went all out with ease thanks to the selections at the neighborhood mall. I even used up an entire small can of hairspray to finish off the blue metallic eyeshadow, hot pink frosted lipstick, and Madonna-esque “mole” accented look. It was awesome, it was scary, it was … well, go big or go home, right? But, could it translate into SL?
Yes, yes it could.
I was able to just about get my entire RL look down with a few items from the Marketplace (including these snakeskin heels.. love the color but my size “0” feet still manage to peek out the front.. wtf?) and a few other fave locations, mixing and matching along the way. It was fun to see if I could replicate the look, perusing my inventory to see what I had, picking up a few things to complete the look. After it was all said and done, I was reminded of a Dolly Parton quote, “It costs a lot of money to look this cheap.”
(For this look I definitely had to take advantage of the layering options of Viewer 2.)
