maybe sparrow

maybe sparrow you should wait
the hawks alight ’til morning
you’ll never pass beyond the gate
if you don’t hear my warning

When I saw these tights from Kyoot at Collabor88 for March I knew I wanted to put together a blue and green springtime look, preferably with some more bird-themed items (part of the tight design is birds and birdcages). I picked up this pretty tulip-sleeved dress with flowers and birds along the hem from JANE at March Mesh Madness (MMM12).

notes are hung so effortless
with the rise and fall of sparrow’s breast

Schadenfreude has a whole set of bird skull jewelry at FLUX right now, with cord/metal/gem/bead texture change options via HUD. I used the “Choose” option on the HUD to select which beads I wanted to change at a time, so I could create a repeating pattern of three different bead textures.

Lyric excerpts from “Maybe Sparrow” by Neko Case


gimme more… sushi

I totally had “Maneater” on my mind as this look came together. I started out with Sushi Gluttony items in black and red, and since Apolline had already laid claim to the corsets, I decided to go in a “inappropriately sexy for the office” direction. coldLogic and Ingenue also get some credit for pushing my thoughts in this direction — daring button-down shirts and short-but-not-micro tight skirts? Please and thank you! So that’s gluttony and lust so far, and then the details on the Khan Heels and Chained Electro-Cute Necktie (retextured with Gluttony Neckties HUD, because backwards-compatibility is AWESOME) hint at the possibility of violence, so there’s wrath. Perfect!


Bolded items available at Festival of Sin.
