I love that word. It wraps together the sins of lust and sloth with a liberal dose of vanity. It speaks of lounging, pleasure and preening. As far as lust is concerned, it’s more about velvet and feathers than the red primal need, which in itself almost courts wrath.
From all the things in Festival of Sin this Carnal lingerie set by *Solange!* was the one that spoke to me most. It told me: “I was made for you, you must have me, you cannot possibly continue your existence on the grid without me.” What was I to do except obey? Black lace and blue roses? Mine.
I dug up the Victorian Room prop room by Miamai for these pictures, most of the poses a part of the chaise longue. Sloth has never married vanity so well as with fainting couches. Grapes might be out of era, but chocolate bonbons might work for a touch of gluttony.
I also finally bought the voyante ring by je suis from the festival. They’re not fair exclusives, I have been eyeing them for a while now and when I had to pose in luxurious blue fripperies I had finally the excuse to get it. As for the hair, it’s an old hunt gift and I have no idea who the designer is, time has eaten away the creator. However, it was exactly what I wanted for this look, so I decided to use it anyway. Any information on the creator and/or similar hairdos out there is more than welcome!
These boudoir mules by Lassitude & Ennui make feet pretty again. Being mesh they also bend with your movements beautifully. I have really no experience with prim feet — even in shoes — because I never seem to make them match as perfectly as I’d like. I blame Sonya’s pale skin being difficult to match and me being paranoid about windlight and shadow effects. These tempt me, though. The things they do to her legs! Vanity at its best~
