Winter Well – by e-brink


Left of Center

Beside the Light

Winter can be a melancholy time, an exhausting time, a time for inward turning, and a time for deep thoughts. I've been dwelling on a few different things - one being power, how we know we have power, how we identify being powerful, what empowerment means, and the difference between actual and perceived power. Knowing when one does and doesn't have power is complicated because perceived power can give rise to actual power, and actual power can be perceived as powerlessness. I was also thinking about that in the context of groups, group dynamics, the prejudices individuals-as-members-of-groups are prone to. I've been really struck lately by the rhetorical plays people make and trying to figure out why - is it accurate all the way down to bone, or is there a calculus for winning which steps in? A discussion of creating a woman-dominated space was responded to using stereotypes of weakness and pink, and it was all intra-group; a woman and feminist objects to sartorial and language choices of other women; women organize to police and exclude each other as part of seeking equality; there is something bent here when it aggregates. There is something also in the stories we tell, and how we work with and against them as individuals. The world is made up of layers of meaning, and sometimes I think truly understanding is completely impossible.

Luncheon for Tw

I'm wearing a couple of things from Level Up, specifically this wonderful dress and necklace (the latter a gacha) from katat0nik. The motif  of the dress is froggies, the style adorable, the skirt semi-transparent. I'm wearing the average size here; it goes larger and smaller on both ends and works well on both thin and curvy bodies. I actually want clothes like this offline - the fluffy skirt is a favorite of mine, and who doesn't love a sailor suit top? The necklaces, which are gacha prizes like I said, are all fruit themes in a wide variety of colors. The little bow in the same color is adorable. I went with a loose, flowy ponytail from Clawtooth in a very simple blond. One nice thing about rigged hairs is that ponytails can now stay nicely tucked against the body instead of going every which way whenever one turned ones' head, and this is a waist-length ponytail worth having, as much for the flyaway bangs as anything else. My stockings are an old, lucky purchase from Stellar which I really love; they actually came in all green, but I thought the white contrasted more nicely with my shoes and were less overpoweringly a saturated green - the touch of the clover is enough to echo the green of the frogs. Capping off my toes are these fun variants on a Mary Jane style heel, with the delicate ribbon along the edge of the shoe and the shiny, silver buttons. They come from Mango Cheeks, and are a fantastic, elegant shoe - I ended up picking up the fatpack! I especially like how the band is tapered instead of steady, reflecting the pressure put on it by the feet, and giving it that little extra touch to set it apart from other shoes.

I've been leaning too much towards dresses this December, too tasteful. So here's this!

My top is an applier by KaliKo, she's been producing a lot of applier clothing lately which I'm really enjoying, and as a bonus she's also now doing Omega appliers, which is good news for everyone! Also good news, the outfit this top comes from is currently a freebie at her Slink West (Physique applier only) and Love-n-Lust locations! 
My impossibly tiny shorts are by Sakide at the F R O S T event as part of the Thermal outfit, and include various HUD options including an ability to hide the pockets, decorative studs, and for the daring, panties. 

If you haven't been to the Arcade yet, you're clearly not paying attention. My socks by Erratic and my snow monster companion by my apparently unofficial mascot-maker of the season, silentsparrow, are from this month's round, but also from a gacha are my supercool horns (the lights are animated!). All of Souzou Eien's gacha machines are currently marked down to 25L a throw, so I was able to pick up a few of these in different colours, plus a few other awesome items, for next to nothing!

Though my pictures don't show it well, my hair by Tameless is a punky shaved-sides affair with a very full ponytail, but what I really love about it most is that one little strand hanging down at the front. I think that is completely charming.
