How does your avatar look today ?

Recommended Posts

Super happy with my avatar! Took me forever to get her right. Modeled her after my favorite Bollywood actresses.

so I got up this morning, went to Exile, Fabia, Mina and Rama salon, then my L$ disappeared and now my hair look different.

For me, personally (and, of course, someone else might have a different response, based upon their personal interests and expectations), Eclipse was both weirdly too varied, and too narrow. On the one hand, there were a lot of things that were merely grungy rather than really "dark," like a tenement slum. And, on the other, there wasn't a lot for people like me who aren't primarily goth or dark, but just like the aesthetic.

I guess, ultimately, the success of events has to be judged by their financial results: is it making money? And, I suppose, by the service it might provide to the community that they are catering to. In this case, it was a community that clearly didn't really include people like me (which is, of course, fine).

   I think that when it comes to The Eclipse, it's feels less about adherence to a very specific theme, and more about representation of a group of creators whose aesthetics 'generally' are compatible. The four large booths in the middle are ContraptioN, HotDog, CerberusXing and Death Row Designs; at least the first three of those do work very much together and have several collaborative projects. Some of the other regular creators, such as Noctis, are just big names in the general SL Vampire/Goth communities as, well, they've been around for a long time and very much aims to cater to those aesthetics. 

   Whether the event is economically successful, I have no idea. But it's been around for a while now, and whilst there are other 'dark' events (such as The Darkness and Suicide Dollz), none of them ever really do manage to be 100% 'dark', and I highly doubt that there's any event at all where every creator is both entirely within the theme and where everyone likes everything in that event. It's like the men's fashion events that have regular creators offering unisex poses and tattoos, or the adult events where you find hairs and, again, the occasional pose packs and tattoos that may or may not have absolutely nothing with the actual theme. 

   But as I mentioned before, there are a great many ways to adore the darkness, there are so many subgenres of the gothic subculture alone - and not all who 'like it dark' are goth, either. Dark post-punks, trad-goths, romantic goths, lolita goths, industrial goths / 'goths' (rivet heads / synths), cybergoths, gothic steampunks, pastel goths, doll goths, fetish goths, gothabillies / pin-up goths, J-goths... It's so messy that people are trying to map the subculture with flowcharts to keep up, which is all the more confusing as the terminology isn't entirely standardised either, and most people I know still just refer to themselves as 'goths' and switch fashion depending on mood and occasion. A brief introduction to some of the styles: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6JXYLSbJ5FA

   And to sort of stick to topic, here's Neph as-- Guess the Goth? (Yes, I know the earrings and top aren't really kosher - it's just a quick T-pose snap!)

Portrait of a Cybergoth

   I kind of liked the framing, so I re-did the shoot for another portrait!

The Jazz Singer

(Taken at Lutz. Surprisingly, I think this is the only photo I've taken there, other than a closeup of some flowers.)

OMG, it's still there? I thought it closed years ago!

(I was nearly seduced there once!)

Didn't LL take over the Lost Gardens of Apollo to preserve it?

Anyway I can honestly say I was not nearly seduced there.

Think I've finally beat the fever I've had since Friday and I'm feeling less delirious. This was taken right before the fever hit and my sis and I were enjoying our boat outing.

Yes, that sounds right, I think. I seem to remember it was a big deal at the time.

It's certainly historically important to SL . . . if only because haunted by the ghosts of so many vanquished virtuous intentions.

Took the Crop Top from the SMB Dev Kit HUD. Made copies, then added textures to them

 

OMG I can't be on the same sim as you as you might get an anaphylactic shock.
