Vint Falken: Eileen is also not my style. :/
Veyron Supercharge: Let’s not discuss your style dear.
Somehow I talked myself into playing ‘dress vint’ with Veyron. I know, not a smart thing to do. :p But hey, I’ll probably have to become a grown-up mature human avie someday? Not! If you are wondering, despite Veyron’s evil intentions to get me all sexy, most conversations during this two-day shopping spree went like this:
‘Lookie V., that’s neat!’
‘And this one?’
‘But surely you’ll like this one?!’
‘And I have this in my inventory. Nice, no?’
So each time Veyron said ‘no’, Vint saw it was good, and bought the item. *grins* I got a neat new uniform - slash end speculations of Vint being fulltime Neko of the Reich and on a very dubious part of the political spectrum -, white-black-red hair from Calisto cut in a way the owner would never have the guts for and a cute white fluffy winter hat - no furries were harmed for making it, I think. Looks good, no?
But I must admit, actually, I’m loosing the battle with Veyron. In Veyron dresses Vint Falken she promised I could keep my shape. Nope. She made me buy earrings and thus change my elven ears so there was actually a spot to put that stange metal humans call jewelery. She promised I could keep my ‘monochromaticly pale skin‘ too. But then urged me to add some color. I showed her pink spots, magenta spots, blue spots, … but nothing was good enough. In total despair, I clicked my - once - favorite human skin from tête-a-pied and chose ‘wear’. Veryon: 2, Vint: 0.
And then her maybe most important promise: I got to keep my ears! Problems soon arrised when I tried one of the ‘this looks like half a day in the bathroom’ hairdo’s she says matches the dress. Suddenly, my elven ears showed and I had two pair of ears. ‘No problem’, she said. ‘We’ll address that later.’ Hell! Did I know instead of making the elven ears disappear Veyron would force me to take off my neko ears!!! I had even colored them to brown/blackish so they would melt in with the hair, hoping she would not notice what was my last link to ‘being a neko’. But she said we should still go for a necklace, and mentioned something about lingery too. Maybe I can sneak in the tail?
Moral of the story? I am a vewwy vewwy vewwy sexy human now. But I don’t want to be that. Really! The owner might want to be a bit more sexy, or at least she feels the ‘public pressure’ to dress more ‘general female’ and less.. well.. Vintish, but Vint does not want to. So I’m not sure you’ll see me in public often like this.
Final thingie would be a (vewwy, vewwy small, one photograph will do) fashion shoot with an SL photographer. I’m doubting between Nephie Eerie - because she brings out the beauty in every person/scene/story/… - and Collin Savon, for as there is one person that can shoot ’sexy’, it’s Collin. Should I ask both? :/
PS. We did agree on the dress and she did let me pick the color of my shoes, after she decided on the - aargh! pointy! - form.
And ah yes, there’s Veyron’s side of the ‘dress Vint’ story too. Will you believe she used the word ‘wailing’ twice?!!
