52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Patriarch

Skin:  Nomine;  Aether, Deep water
Hair:  Damselfly;  Mila, beach beige  (tinted dark purple)
Ensemble:  Simone;  Fae, berry
Wings:  Material Squirrel;  storm wings
Face Paint:  Grixdale;  caustic paints

A week ago if anyone had told me there was a color called Patriarch, I would have laughed at them.  Really.  I get the whole logic thing of purple being the color of royalty and it makes sense that if there is a Patriarch color, it would be purple.  Who knew?

The whole ensemble (except the hair and face tattoos) is a look I put together 3 to 4 years ago for a fantasy event.  Even through several inventory purges, I’ve made sure to keep the pieces out and available because I still use them from time to time.  I’m not sure if some creators are still around or if the items are still available.  I do know Material Squirrel items were still available a few months ago because I bought a different set of wings there for my White color challenge look.

52 Weeks of Color Challenge: White

Hair:  Exile;  Nikki, Sahara
Skin:  Laqroki;  Nellie, Fair 01
Lingerie:  Solange;  Nightlife, White
Shoes:  Pixel Mode;  Lady T’s, Baby Pink
Wings:  Material Squirrel;  Sofiel Angel Wings
Halo: SoLur Industries;  Color Changing Halo

I had been looking forward to the White color challenge since it was first announced.  I knew which outfit I wanted to wear (something very different from where I ended up), how I wanted to style the accessories and what setting to use.  Until I put the ensemble on and discovered that my memory had failed me and it wasn’t exactly white.  So quick change midweek and I went with my version of a Victoria’s Secret Angels look.


I’m having a bit of a love-fest with Pixel Mode shoes, particularly the Baby T’s and the Lady T’s.  I noticed I’ve used them in just about every picture I’ve done for this blog so far.  I really do own other shoes, but having the fat packs of both styles has really been a convenient source to match my outfits.


Next week’s color:  Banana Mania.  Hmm, one of the colors I don’t really own much of is shades of yellow.  I sense a lot of shopping this week
