The Sirens Inside You

Posted on Updated on

One of the wonderful, kindred fascinations that so many of us share in the SL blogging and Flickr communities is a deep love and appreciation for music. Songs can often be found informing and inspiring pictures, blog posts, and even the looks we create. And some of the most enduring and beloved landmarks on the grid often have music at their core: whether it’s a well-loved dance and DJ spot, or a region like Chouchou whose very existence in rooted in the music created by its amazing owners and designers.

I’m often listening to music as I wander the grid, work on photography, or write my blog posts. And it was the soundtrack to the amazing and heartrending game “Life Is Strange” that inspired the site and sonic mood of my picture today. Without giving away any spoilers or secrets, a lighthouse features prominently in the game, and my look reminds me of something that a grown-up Max might wear on a trip in the dusky evening light to the Oregon coast. A form-fitting bikini modestly covered by a cool jacket she snagged from Chloe’s closet, and sandals with a wonderful Boho vibe that may be a bit of a nod to Rachel Amber’s memorable style.
