If you’ve ever been on my personal Tumblr, Rawr! I’m A Badger!, you’d probably know I’m a fan of idol group Morning Musume. I first started listening to them around the end of 2006, and became a somewhat-obsessed fan by mid-2007, when JunJun and LinLin joined and Takahashi Ai became leader.
One of my favourite songs by Morning Musume is called Nanchatte Renai, which can be seen on the official morningmusumechannel on Youtube. Something that particularly stood out to me was the costume from the PV. It’s so simple – a white top under a little black dress… but I love it, so much that I had to re-create the look in Second Life, and it’s become one of the outfits I wear the most.
Of course, I couldn’t get it 100% exactly like what’s seen in the PV. The skirt, hat, and shoes are a little different, and I decided not to purchase a belt – I like it better without one, anyway. I also couldn’t go with the “one glove” look, because, as you know, Second Life doesn’t give us the option to have different textures on different arms – one of my biggest SL peeves, by the way… I do have a whinge about that quite often, haha.
For this blog entry, I decided to buy my first Mesh hair! This is the “Dee” hairstyle by Truth Hair. When I first bought the demos for this hair, I was very frustrated as it didn’t appear to be working for me – turns out I needed to put my graphics up a little higher! I’m glad I figured it out… it’s a really pretty hairstyle and it goes so well with my lovely hat. I do wish I could edit it, though… I’d like to move it up a bit higher, and out of my eyes.
One of my favourite things about this outfit is the skirt, “scene starlett tutu” by Rotten Toe. It has a colour-change menu, where you can change the colour of the stars, and underneath the tutu. I love the adorable tiny skulls! 🙂
