Phire by Candy Lemmon

Candy said, “I say modern retro, ala Amy Winehouse (in better days) or Kat Von D. I'll leave the stores up to you, but I demand tattoos, pin-up hair, and red lipstick.” Easy enough really.


My first stop was Ingenue for the Jungle Bettie set. Next stop was Canimal for some tattoos. Now while I already own more tattoos then I care to admit, I didn’t have any that were bold and colorful enough for the challenge. After some careful perusing I chose the Suicide Girls body graffiti.


I needed to find the prefect style to top off the look. I went through all the hair I already had and none of it worked for the picture I had in my head. So back to Ingenue I went. I swear I grabbed at least half a dozen hair demos trying to find that one prefect look. Kitten with a whip was just what my pin up needed to go with the hair flower I had all picked out. The last thing I had to get was a skin. Well I didn’t need to but I wanted to use a skin that was still available in-world, as I am notorious for using special stuff you can’t actually get. Instead I did that with the hair flower...ooops. With red lips in mind I went over to Chai because I knew that there I would find just what I was looking for, and I did.

*wolf howl*

I feel very Tex Avery cartoon right now, you look smoking!!! I hope you didn't break the bank with those buys, I actually suggested the look in part because I figured you might have something like that in your inventory. ;)

Didn't break the bank at all. I absolutly loved the way this one came together.
