A unique twist to usual blog posts, targeting the Secondlife (SL) Fad dynamic. “Fads” or short lived trends can be described as a short lived intense and widelyhsared enthusiasm for something. As per SL many of such fads can be attributed to clothing items, or even lifestyles within the virtual realm. Is your SL surely so with it as you wish… One particular “Pixel Fad” (Secondlife Fad) that did indeed catch my attention, besides the most recent reincarnation of the Rihanna Headphones that in RL costing a pretty penny of $9,000 US sold out in 24hrs after her tweet ( Click me for Link to original Tweet), which inturn has taken the grid in turn seeing numerous clones surfacing all over the grid.
A fave fad of mine however was the one in which Vitiligo was the star. The designer behind it? Kex.blackheart Owner of Gaja who featured their unique creation at the Cosmetic Fair May 15th 2015.
On a tidbit of a sidenote.. What really is Vitiligo? According to the Mayo Clinic Vitiligo is a disease that results in the loss of skin color in blotches, wherein the extent and rate of color loss is unpredictable. It affects the skin on any part of the body and may possibly even affect the hair, inside of one’s mouth and even the eyes. Determined mainly by the melanin within the body, which when the cells that produce this substance vital to pigmentation of the skin dies or stops functioning. Vitiligo affects people of all color and skin types, however it is more beautifully noticed on individuals of predominantly darker skin complexion. one thing to note however is that the condition is not life-threatening nor contagious.
Yet it sure was contagious as the plague but in a wonderful way on the grid from May till a little while after. Some choosing to revel in the uniqueness of the rare innovation with pictures galore. Now almost a year later whose still wearing it? Despite myself one such individual is my Secondlife Twin Izzy, quite a few comments upon our choice to continue on wearing as we so fondly call “beauty marks” have been both positive an negative in differing regards. From the snobbish remarks of possible suitors, demanding change before full pursuit of relations. Even to the odd but of late as the year mark of this cosmetic release draws near..comments of love, adoration and support and appreciation for a twist to the norm of the SL mainstream, begin to shower more and more.
Are you like the few that wait until the craze is over and whip our the “fad” item now turned SL classic…or the wear it for a week and then toss it into the confines of a inventory of horded stuff..? Let me know. I for one, prefer to wait until the phase of, “every where you turn someone has it on just because” is over to enjoy the simple solitude of a unique piece that personifies the beauty hidden within a life changing skin condition. Dare to be unique!
