Moonlight and Emeralds

Daronna Neris’tina in Emeralds 1

I love using Second Life as a platform for devising costumes for my fiction characters and making them come to life.  And it also gives me a chance to create some really good artwork in my photos!

This suite is of a woman who calls herself Daronna; she is in a pensive mood as she attempts to work out memories in the evening, following the day’s duties.  I tend to write my stores in fits and starts, and so I first began dressing Daronna several years ago, when system and flexi were still the norms in SL fashion, and Bliss Couture was a name to conjure with for many of us.  It was before tattoo makeup, however, and definitely before modern tattoo allowances — this makeup is in six layers!  (As I always attempt to do, I’ve listed the makeup in application order, beginning with the lowest level and building up.)
