Miss Patina was a very obvious character. She had to be a statue! (Patina is the tarnish that forms on bronze and similar surfaces in time. Think of Statue of Liberty, for example. When old statues turn green.) So I turned my Miss Patina into a sort of a Greek statue and ran around in the Pillars of Hercules posing.
The aqua tone of Plastik’s Ataciara skins was pretty much perfect patina. The Mochi hair by Wasabi Pills in aquatic tone is slightly off from the patina, but was the closest one I could find. I was aiming for sort of Greek-Roman statue curls, but couldn’t find hair that would have nailed it perfectly and in the end I was really happy with the cutesy round curlettes of this one.
I had a lot of fun trying to find places where a statue could be placed, such as this. All the poses are by aDORKable Poses, lovely combination of unassuming cuteness. The Will ‘O The Wisp outfit is by Evie’s Closet. It worked as a sort of ragged toga enough for me.
The real question is of course where do all these lifelike statues come from? Visit the Cave of Medusa and you might understand… I was really happy to see how playing with windlight and viewer settings could produce texture changes on the skin, but what would have made me -really- happy is finding body tattoo layers to mimic either the patina or the bronze. I really wanted a sort of flaked look to the statue, perhaps even some cracks to the surface. If you know of any, please share!
