Jack or Jill

It had been a long day. It had been a long hard day. It had been a long, hard productive day. They had trawled through almost a hundred stores, searching for just the right items, catching up each like a prize. feet were aching, eyes were sore, night had fallen, and morning sun now licked the edges of the windows. Hunting for bargains was only ever the start, once you found everything you were looking for, you had to haul the loot home, open it up, and try it all on.
New clothes, accessories, a whole new look - theirs just for the taking.
1 \o/ Jack or Jill time again! \o/
For the uninitiated - Depraved Events each year host Jack or Jill - a gridwide hunt of two paths, male and female, each with around 50 stores to search for a prize. Prize items range from shoes to skins - and everything in between - especially in this round - socks! There will be more posts from me detailing some of the prizes from this years hunt; for now, here's the details.

On her:
Shape : .:Panda Punx.: Body Shop Briella
Skin : .:Panda Punx:. Body Shop Briella {Crush} Sunkissed Cleav
Tattoo :  PMS - Bulletproof Tattoo
Facepaint : [SHOCK] Factory - Patient Zero - Harley V2 (Female)
Dress : !TLB - Jillian/Hearts/M
Stockings :  C h a r y . - Love Skeems (pink)

On him:
Shape : .:{Hostyle Shapes}:Jack Shape w/Ears
Tattoo :  GrungeInk - Evil Within (Faded) 3
Shades : K_gs Jenius/Glasses
Top : etham - Engstrom Sweater  [Black - Blue]
Necklace :  Goth1c0: My Bulletine Necklace
Boots :  Loordes of London - Matterley Biking Boot -Steel

Also shown - not part of the Jack or Jill hunt - but certainly useful for many of the prizes - are the
 Slink Female Feet (AvEnhance). These MESH beauties boggled my mind at first - as I tend not to read instructions - just get all stuck in, and end up with no legs, then grey legs, then no legs again - but WOWZA. Once I got things sorted out - these have totally taken over from my other Slink feet which are all now a few years old. The look is great - the HUDS are intuitive, and it was easy to colour match. Appliers are being made by an ever increasing number of skin designers - and now clothing specialists are getting in on the action. The Stockings shown above from C h a r y are a look I really love - half on - half on the foot, giving a realism so rare until now in SL!  The feet are available on Markeplace - or at the Slink mainstore for L$675.

They had called her so she was on her way. It would take her about an hour to get from the lower levels up to those where the rich and wealthy now and then had the chance to see sunlight. Real sunlight not the false light which projectors emitted. If she had wanted it she could have a flat our even a loft up there. There had been many offers in that direction but after having promised to ponder about the proposal she always had a very understandable reason to refuse the offer.
Some shivered when she passed them. They remembered stories of their grandparents and parents about somebody like her and wondered if she was the same person and why she hadn't aged since then. But the situation was fragile and she was known for her knowledge or more her abilities. The best medium of the time - able to predict the future and even more important she knew how to change it. Sometimes she wondered if they would have hired her if they would have known that she was the last AI which had not been destroyed after the war. But she always moved that process of thought out of her main core. The parts she needed to preserve herself were expensive and if anybody wanted a nice future there was no reason why they should not pay her.

Although most of the stores which take part in the final fantasy faire do not really seem to have made items which fit to the topic (there is even a sex motorbike available for those who like it faster) - there are some items there which are pretty. For example the Titania scarf from May's Soul. The scarf is made of unrigged mesh and looks like being made of fur with some feathers as decoration. It is pretty and a good accessory to the dress Junbug made for the current round of we <3 Rp. The dress is simple and - while mesh might (in dependence of the used ao) not be the best to make a long skirt look realistic - because of the lack of decorations very elegant. It would suit as well as wedding dress as in the other available colours for ballroom dancing or roleplay. The dress is available in the standard sizes.
The choosen blindfold comes from 22769. As the scarf it is made of unrigged mesh and can be edited. The blindfold is sold in several colours.
The Erika hair from Wasabi Pills is very variable in the way it can be used. It fits to soften an elegant business look as well as to a romantic dress as in this case.
The Cataclysm tattoo from Fallen Gods can be tinted and used to create unicolour looks.
The poses used come all from Ma Vie. They suit very well to take pictures of long dresses and to create an elegant look with a strong expression.
