In my other blog I wanted to illustrate my story with a photo of lead character Annabella. Seeing as the story is set in the Victorian Era, I scrambled around looking for inexpensive Victorian dresses.
I found several in the L$200 price range. And seeing as all I wanted was one pic for the story, I jumped in and bought one, but it got stuck in delivery so I bought another. Anyway, I ended up with two inexpensive dresses and used one for the story, and that was that. Btw, I spent an hour or so fiddling around with Annbella’s avi, so if you look carefully you’ll see that she’s not me (check it).
Somewhere along the way, I fell in love with the elegance of the Victorian era. I know those could be very uncomfortable clothes beneath the surface, but wow are they pretty. I took a few extra photos and put together a little composite of two of them. That’s all, just that these are pretty.
|These photos are me, however.|

outfit, but I love it.
There be a gun under my skirt.
When people in Second Life talk about Victorian Era, there’s almost an automatic connection with Steampunk.
And I too am very fascinated with Steampunk. In fact, I’ve been making some fly-bye’s over at Caledon lately.
I’m not sure if I have the drive to hurl myself into the whole Steampunk roleplay scene, but it seems like something that would fit into my second life.
I learned a lot about role play during the writing of my story about samurai and geisha. Some of the lessons were very painful and for this reason I’m not sure how far I can go. As Leanna would say though, time will tell.
