Once upon a time, there was a little girl who lived in a village near the forest. Whenever she went out, the little girl wore a red riding cloak, so everyone in the village called her Little Red Riding Hood….
Okay, so this isn’t exactly a fairy tale rendering of ‘Little Red’ but I had SO MUCH FUN putting this outfit together! Wicca Merlin of Wicca’s Wardrobe and Windlight Magazine issued this challenge to Second Lifers and, man, it’s a good one!
There’s still plenty of time to enter this contest and since the deadline IS so far away I’m probably going to put a couple more ideas together before I decide which one I love the very, very best. ❤
Need some extra inspiration? Have a look at The Edge Styling Challenges group on flickr!
For me, my inspiration came pretty quickly when I saw Wicca’s Zoomy vest; the shoulders poofing up the way they do reminded me of a hood and since it came in red, well, huzzah! I wanted to keep as much of the focus on that hood as possible so I kept the majority of my outfit dark, but modern. All the red, from nails to my Peqe Sleevies to the vest, makeup, and wicked Wicca headphones, is grouped together for that reason as well, and I slipped a neat reddish light leak overlay into my edited photo for that extra effect. 😉
Since this is such a neat and modern styling for Little Red Riding Hood, I wanted to try to bring extra attention to my dissonant look. To do that, I grabbed a pair of AZOURY’s Marquise shoes (designed for the Slink POINTE feet, eee!); there’s no way anyone in their right mind would wear these shoes in the forest .. which is kind of the pointe, isn’t it? (Har har!)
I have SO MANY COOL ideas in the brain pipe for May! Stay tuned, my sweets!
