Trials of Eyeliner

Comes across all shy and coy, just another nancy boy

Have you ever found yourself shopping in Second Life and run across something so entirely goofy that you know it will look totally silly on you? You walked away from it and kept shopping but your mind kept going back to it. Every time you almost bought something else you paused and thought about that silly item. You were about to leave the shopping area but you wanted to go back one more time and just double check you didn’t miss anything. At least that’s what you’re telling yourself.

You wander aimlessly and sure enough, find yourself back in front of that silly item. You stand there for an internal eternity, arguing with yourself over whether or not you can justify spending the money to buy it. You even go so far as to open a landmark to go somewhere else but juuuust before you teleport, you impulsively buy it.

That’s… kinda what I did here today.

I KNOW they’re goofy.
I KNOW they’re incredibly japanese-anime-school-girl-chibi.
I know this.

And yet I … just couldn’t help myself.

In their original state, they of course looked even sillier than they do now on me. VERY short, VERY wide feet! The main reason I went ahead and bought these, however, is because they’re made of individual sculpted pieces that are modifyable. So I was able to make them less wide and longer like my big ole feet would actually fit in them. So they’re still oversized but at least they look like my feet go in them.


Sometimes though, you just have to embrace silly. You have to step back and take a breath and laugh through the rough times. Its either that or a martini before breakfast, y’know? And once you start down that path, the next thing you know you’re waking up nude on the hood of someone elses car with a poodle licking your… face.

    Silly is a bit of an understatement? But you somehow make it work! *grumbles*

    1. Years of silly practice. 😀
