The carnival parade was here in my town today. It’s cold and rainy and noone would be dressed like this sun or not, but in SL we can do as we wish with no risk of catching the flu or getting scandalous looks from neighbors!
I was going to do this post on Tuesday but Flux will be having a Mardi Gras party at 6pm SLT sunday 19th feb (that’s like…right now!) here. If you haven’t yet visited, Flux has a bunch of vendors in stalls and litte shops around the area and they are selling all sorts of Mardi Gras themed items. I figured it would be a good idea to get this posted before the party. (edit – okay at least near the start of the party?) Take the teleport door at the landing point up to the party box.
One of the shop set up at Flux is Schadenfreude, I’m holding one of the fans, it comes in solid green and purple or an alternating colors version. They also have themed top hats, bone crowns, corsets and more.
Also at Flux I picked up a few freebies, the thin bead necklaces and scepter are two I found.
A lot of my outfit is from Chanimations lucky chairs. They have a neat sim with lots of neat stuff, especially burlesque themed outfits and and various creative pose props. There are also five lucky chairs around the sim (I’ve only ever found four hehe) and it’s loaded with Mardi Gras themed items. The outfit can also be bought in the shop if you don’t want to wait.
Special sneak peek at my getting ready process! I’m not really ready till I’ve had a spin in Mock’s makeup chair. There’s even a line!
