We can all agree that I’m no fashionista (I’m no beauty queen either but that’s beside the point). I do love non traditional skins – partly because I think they’re cool and partly because it gets rid of all the issues related to makeup etc., that I have with the “pink” ones.
I’ve been wearing my old “natural” standby more often lately so I thought maybe I should update it. Buying a new one every three years can’t be seen as frivolous right? I headed out into the grid to grab as many demos as I could find and then hid myself away to try them on.
Understand I went to some of the big/trendy/fashionable skin stores. I thought I might as well start with places that didn’t require too much “finding”. I was obviously not paying attention to what I was grabbing – probably because I hate shopping so much and was trying to get it done as quickly as possible.
What I saw when I put on the first demo shocked me to the core. It was the same with all of dozens of skins I tried. Each of the many designers I sampled are endangering the health and well-being of Second Life residents!.
I have a pretty big mouth – can’t argue with that. So do I really need collagen?
One designer combined collagen/botox injections with sucked in cheeks – who wants to walk around with giant lips doing kissy face all day?
I’ve railed against barbie boobs and butts that have to enter the room 3 minutes after the rest of you (not accounting for lag) but this is a serious health hazard. Do you know what it looks like when the shots start to wear off↑?
It’ll be a while before I’m willing to venture out into a skin store again. I’ll just stick with “trusty old” in the meantime and try to erase the other images from my mind.
Or maybe I’ll go a different direction. Let’s see somebody try and inject anything into her!
