Summer Rayne

Posted on Updated on

In my little corner of the First Life universe, it’s HOT. I think even the Grammar Police would forgive that egregious caps lock usage, because there’s just no suitable way to express the special melty, sweltery misery of a desert summertime. Why did a red haired, fair skinned, burns-to-a-crisp-in-10-minutes lass move to such a place? Excellent question, my friends! Do let me know if you ever think of a logical answer. ;)

Having grown up in the Northeastern part of the US, I was used to never living far from a body of water, whether it was the Atlantic ocean; a pretty lake at a state park; even a swimming hole at the base of a waterfall where you’d steal away on lazy summer afternoons for shy smooches with your high-school paramour. But in the Southwest? Bodies of water are either man-made and un-swimmable, or merely a faraway dream.

With our lack of precipitation and shorelines, I always have a dual dream of rain and the beach, although not necessarily experiencing both at the same time! But in Second Life, I’m enjoying exactly that: a beautiful oceanside escape and a gorgeous outfit that may not be suitable for rain, but was beautifully made by RAYNE. Close enough for me!

I feel just like a tropical, boho beach babe in my long, lovely skirt and fringed top by RAYNE Couture, which is exclusive to the Sneak Peak event through July 5th. It comes in three different color combinations; I’m showing the forest/red (left) and teal/purple (right) styles here. And my beautiful, freckly and fresh-faced skin is by DS’ELLES, whose skintones are just perfection for sunny summer days! They give me a soft, sweet kiss of sun that I can’t even dream of achieving in real life.

How lovely it is that the virtual world lets us experience so many things we can only wish for in the physical world, from the serenity of an ocean’s shore to the golden loveliness of tanned skin. Is it any wonder that I’m absolutely rapt over my 2nd Second Life? ♥
