LIKE OMG A MAKEOVER! ~Lanai Jarrico Reporting…

 I recently underwent a complete Avatar transformation courtesy of Ivy Maverick CEO of Maverick Designs and the Prince of Second Life (Yes, there is one in SL) and I have to say, like most peeps, I’m uncomfortable with drastic changes  but my post make over recovery time was painless and the experience  was a lot of fun. Together they truly collaborated and created the virtual me, in an Avatar.

It all started with an IM from Ivy, a long time friend and awesome designer here in Second Life. She informed me by order of the Royal Secret Society’s Prince Sonoda,  that I was getting a complete make- over and she ask me to send her a couple of pictures of myself.  A couple of days later, my custom avatar shape from Maverick Designs were ready to try on! 

When I put it on for the first time, I felt strange and was unsure about this big step in my virtual appearance.  I didn’t want to make the same esthstetic decisions Joan Rivers made, even though she is my idol next to Oprah Winfrey and Jerry Springer.
Anyways, Ms. Maverick comforted me and reminded me that the look was not complete yet.  Together they had me by both arms and escorted me around second life like the fashion police.  I really didn’t put up a fight and just let it all go down.   

Off we went to get my hair at >TRUTH HAIR< Hair by Truth Hawks. You can find all kinds of hair styles long and short here. I was happy to find my actual hairstyle.

Our next stop was to get my eyes and make up, so we stopped by YS & YS- YourSkins YourShape and found the perfect pair and make-up too!

 I’ve been sporting cat-like black eye liner, Smokey eye shadow and maroon lipstick since high school and I wanted to continue the trend.  I was so delighted to find just what I was looking for in one place.

Once my look was complete, we checked out some clothing and shoe stores suggested by Ivy, where I got a new pair of boots.  By this time, It was getting late, I was exhausted from all the shopping  so I called it a night. If you want to know where I got my AO, dances and other accessories, Just ask :)

This makeover was a total surprise to me since I’ve been strutting’ my same old’ pasty skins for the past 5 years or so.   Throughout the years I’ve gone in for some minimal virtual plastic surgeries and tune ups with breast, hand and foot reductions but nonetheless getting a full makeover is a great way to feel a sense of renewal and a chance to try new fashion trends with your Avatar that project the real you.

Thank you Ivy and Prince, I feel Fabulous!
