#482 If music be the food of love on - William Shakespeare

Post #482

As it is coming up to the 400th anniversary of the Bard's death I thought I would share one of his quotes.  I doubt anyone in SL knows that I am a huge lover of Shakespeare.  Along I guess with the majority of school kids. I loathed him at school, where we were forced to study "the Scottish play", which made no sense whatsoever to me.  Years later, as a mature student of English Literature, I was forced into studying Shakespeare again, very unwillingly.  However a trip to Stratford upon Avon to see the Royal Shakespeare Company perform Othello changed all that.  It was spellbinding, electric, and ever since that moment have been a huge appreciator of all things Shakespeare.

Post #482

I always get a kick out of a blog post that builds from one item and takes me in a direction I hadn't thought of till I look at it and put my little imagination cap on.  In this instance the starting point was this dress from a new-to-me designer, VIP Creations.  It fits like a glove and gives ZZ curves fitting of a forties torch singer, so that is what she became for this shoot (though I think she forgot the torch part and rocked it up a bit).  A quick search in her mammoth inventory brought up this great pose set from Nantra which includes 6 poses and 6 coordinating microphone props.

The dress comes with a texture change hud and also white pumps which I am not wearing here, opting for a classic pump from KC Couture instead.  A quick mention about the hair I have worn in this and my last post - both are by No Match for Hairology, and come with hairbase appliers which are absolutely fabulous!  EMO-tions have also included a hairbase applier, and I hope more hair sellers do this as it really makes wearing hair with a mesh head much easier.
