Sometimes I get in the mood to play dress up, and usually when I do, I seem to head in the direction of something fantasy... Sometimes that would be fairy, others zombie and very occasionally mermaid... Today is a day for the latter, thanks to two key reasons - one being that Genre is all about the Mermaids for this round and the other being that a friend of mine owns a store that specialises in Mermaidness!
She gave me something SO COOL that I wanted to take a photo and share it with everyone, but I needed the right things to wear with it. This couldn't just be boring human me sitting on this awesome new toy, no I needed something awesome to wear too!
The awesome from my friend Nikki is this gorgeous Hippocampus... A horse - that is less of a realistic seahorse and something more straight from the minds of fantasy - which is so pretty that you can see Nikki's artist roots coming to life in SL. This in my mind is the perfect pet for any Mermaid, but it is not only the Hippocampus that is worth getting your Mertails to Pacific Sunrise for, this store is filled with a huge collection of all things Mer related! I´ve never seen such a gorgeous collection!
Though to go with the Hippocampus I wanted something that was Mermaid in style but without a tail... It was pretty hard to find what I was looking for, as I wanted the right colour too... Thank goodness for this month´s line-up of Genre!
The outfit that I am wearing, including the body attachments and scales, comes as a set from Sweet Lies, and can be found at this month's Genre collection. I just loved the fact that you got so much in one package. The tattoo layer scales are gorgeous and really well put together, and the dress is both sexy and highly detailed, and I fell in love with the colour! I teamed it with some mermaidish accessories, including the amazing - but past hunt prize - from CIRCA and then enjoyed a ride under the sea with my new friend hehe...
