When I was very young, the film Who Framed Roger Rabbit debuted and it seemed nigh impossible to escape references to it in pop culture. While I wasn’t wild about the movie (much of it went over my little ginger head), I was irresistibly drawn to Jessica Rabbit, and loved to sashay around the house singing “Why Don’t You Do Right”, her sumptuously sexy torch song.
I’ve always enjoyed the fantasy of cosplaying Jessica in real life one day, and when I tried on MMC‘s Diamond Body Suit with Moon‘s gorgeous Moonlight hair (a brand whose teeny L$100 group joining fee is a million percent worthwhile), I immediately got a glimpse of what a modern day Ms. Rabbit might look like!
Want to give a special mention to the absolutely lovely group gift from Secret Love. It comes in three metals and offers oodles (yes, that’s an official term!) of color-change gem options. There are actually two necklaces set out as group gifts at the moment, and you should absolutely snatch them up. Not only because I said so, but because Secret Love’s designer, Faylinn Erin, is one of the warmest, friendliest and funniest people on the grid. True fact!
I’m really beginning to love the idea of one-piece outfits; they feel so easy and effortless! And there’s something distinctly Blanche Devereaux about an outfit that you can just “sling on and go” in its confident glamour. I imagine that Blanche fancied herself as a (slightly) more mature Jessica Rabbit, with her seduction and beguiling manner. I may have quite a while to go before I’m a Golden Girl, but I sure do feel like a glamorous chanteuse today!
