52 Colours: Russet

Hey, a brown that I didn’t turn into steampunk! Be surprised! Russet as a colour comes from a coarse cloth made of wool and dyed with woad and madder to give it a subdued grey or reddish-brown shade. By the statute of 1363, poor English people were required to wear russet. I wonder if that is where the view of brown as dull, serious, plain colour comes from.

I stayed within respectable, but Miss Russet insisted on going to a piano bar and refused to be plain! The said piano bar is a skybox and a dream scene from Garden of Dreams. 384 prims, 40×40 footprint, animations at the mic, piano, bar stools, chairs and cuddle and more-intense-snuggling couple activities in the couches.

Miss Russet has strapping new wedges by lassitude & ennui, available in L’accessoires. They’re mesh, come with HUD as usual and have both rigged version and unrigged versions that are thus modable for size. The magpie-amount of pearls are also by lassitude & ennui, from If I Were Rich Hunt. They’re mesh and modable, so I tinted some strands brown and black, the original version is all much paler.

The main russet thing, the heart of the look, is of course the mesh pencil skirt. It’s by tulip. from the Vintage Fair that is still going on. Three big sims full of wonderful things and the packed-up-with-people lag should be all gone now. If you haven’t yet visited, now’s a good time!
