Oh, Sylvia....

So I was browsing through blogs today and came upon Hybie's blogger challenge.  The idea is to take an 80's icon, and recreate that person in SL.  Well, I spent a little time thinking about it, and browsing pics of different well known figures from 80's pop culture... including but not limited to, Cindi Lauper, Olivia Newton John, Molly Ringwald.... Traci Lords was even suggested to me (um... no, not that kinda blog).  As I was looking, this image kept popping up.

Several times.  And I thought.. eh.. it was my most favorite movie back then (and still ranks pretty high up there)  so why not.  Finding the outfit for my Baby was fairly simple... so was the hair, thanks to Analog Dog.  So I just needed a pose.. and a Johnny.  Both were surprisingly simple to find! Yay!  I turned to the best group of fashion divas on the grid for help finding the pose.. and luckily.. one of them creates poses!  So, after explaining what I was looking for, Olaenka Chesnokov of oOo Studio said she could whip one up, no problem.  Now, to find my Johnny.... He wasn't far off, actually.

And there you have it.  Not sure if it was exactly what the challenge was going for, but I had fun doing it... and that's what matters... right?

And I have to give an extra thanks to a very special friend for volunteering to play Johnny to my Baby.  *winks and blows a smooch*

~*~Twinkle Toes~*~

I happened to pop into a fashion chat at just the right moment, and Eclectic Wingtips of E! informed me that she has remodeled her store.  Sooo.. I had to rush right over and take a look.  And what a look it is!  So very pretty and easy to find things!  As I was browsing, I found her Gatcha, and took a chance.  What I got was this Ballet Wrap top in black, but she also has it in white for a 1L.   I had already been eyeing the Queens skirt, so when I got the top, the ballerina was born!  After hopping around to find a dance studio, I found Princess Ballet, which I think is for kids, but eh, it worked!  So I got a workout trying all the animations, and there are a lot!
