52 weeks of colour, week 25 – periwinkle

Periwinkle is one of my favourite colours. I’m not sure why I overshadowed it with every colour of the rainbow and then some in the picture, but I did.

We’re half-way through Luna Jubilee’s 52 weeks of colour challenge now. I can think of a few obvious colours that haven’t been used, but I just know she has plenty more surprises up her sleeve.

52 weeks of colour, week 24 – eggplant

It’s official: I am an idiot. I did a big shop in-world to complete the avocado challenge and bought a dark green top, cardigan, jeans and some shoes. I found the perfect sim and set up to take photos.

And I then realised the challenge was eggplant and not avocado.

Start again.

52 weeks of colour, week 23 – asparagus

Apart from being absent minded and buying for a non-existent avocado challenge rather than asparagus, I couldn’t decide which variety of asparagus. I love green, white and purple equally and wore a bit of all three.

It was a shame I couldn’t incorporate butter, lemon juice, salt and pepper and then I’d have concocted one of my favourite simple meals, but it would have been a train wreck of an outfit.

So, I went to Fashion for Life

I wrote a long rant about selfish avatars loaded with bling and animated pets who cause horrendous lag at events, but Fashion for Life is long over as I’m so far behind with posting. You’ve been saved several paragraphs of invective (perhaps I’ll cut and paste into a post for next year and pretend it’s all new and original).

Regardless, the design and layout of the sims was superb and the organisers deserve many congratulations. I bought far too much stuff without thinking about a theme or colour scheme and doubt I’ll be able to piece an outfit together apart from the bird of paradise-ish effort below.

52 weeks of colour, week 22 – banana mania

I tied myself in a knot because of over-thinking this week’s challenge. Banana yellow, the unnatural glaring yellow of a banana Paddle Pop ice cream, the creamy inside of a peeled banana, the slight brown tinges of a banana left in the fruit bowl — I don’t know! Giraffes are just bananas in elongated and re-patterned form if you over-think it for long enough.

This shall do.
