Are you ready for fireworks? I certainly am! I hope our non-US friends and colleagues will permit us an excess of patriotism on this special day, and maybe even enjoy some hot dogs, cold beer, and red, white and blue with us while we watch the skies filling with color and light, and celebrate our nation’s birth.
For my post today I’m showcasing some of the wonderful Lelutka hairstyles I picked up at Hair Fair. (Confession: Yes, I got every single one — and am wearing four of the five.) They come with hairbases (not worn here) to soften the line between hair and forehead. I love them all and am still trying to decide which one to wear tonight. Hope I make up my mind by 9 so I get to the fireworks on time!
Happy 4th, everyone!

When I first joined SL I created an avatar that looked as much as possible like my RL self. Later I made an alt who was physically everything my adolescent self had wanted to be and wasn’t: a tall busty brunette with emerald eyes and curly locks. Yet somehow she logged on, I felt a disconnect; she just didn’t feel like *me* in the way that my original avatar feels like me. Granted, the original has changed over time; she’s gotten taller and younger, thinner and blonder. I’ve also changed, though not quite in those same ways. But she still feels like me. So much so that, at a restaurant with friends the other day, someone behind me said “Ocean” and I turned around and said “Yes?”
Part of me envies those who fully transform themselves in SL. Fairies and furries, aliens and tinys — we see, and welcome, all kinds here. We know that some of the women we meet are really men and vice versa. It must be amazing to explore those other sides of oneself, and I wonder if it’s timidity or something else that keeps me from doing so. But, whatever path we choose, we’re either learning about our RL selves, or trying to run away from them. I hope I’m one of those who is learning.
LeeZu’s new open blouse is amazing: the Arabesque (not shown here) is lovely and colorful; the Araplain, while less colorful is anything but plain. As always, LeeZu’s textures are intricately drawn and the prim attachments are flattering to every avatar. (Yup, I sprang for the fatpack.) I’m wearing it in green for today’s lunch date because it works so well with these great new Purple Moon sunglasses and lovely and practical shoulder bag from Les Petits Details.
