Snapback

So this post is a very long time in the making. As soon as I heard Old Dominion’s song Snapback, I knew I wanted to do a blog post inspired by the look the singer describes. I knew Truth had just released a perfect hair for it. But life happened, and other things got in the way and I only finally, months later, decided it was time. I was gonna do it! Especially after I saw that they got the look SO wrong in the music video (linked at the end), I had to do it.

And I mean, these new(ish) shorts from Neve were perfect. They were inspired by Dirty Dancing, but the cutoff, wornout version just seemed made for this look. And frankly, just being inspired by a movie made them perfect for my new challenge itself (more about that in a moment)!

Snapback

In case you’re wondering, these were the lyrics that inspired this look.

Those stars need to be wished on
Your skin needs to be kissed on
My eyes baby, they’re fixed on you
In your snapback
T-shirt of your favourite rock band
Checking your makeup in my Ray Bans
Breaking hearts like only you can
In your snapback

This also felt like it required a romantic moment, so I grabbed my alt and voila!

Kissing you would hit the spot with me

I’ve got a LOT of these sorts of ideas… so I thought about it, and decided to create a very informal challenge for it, complete with a group called Inspired By Words: Second Life. If you have any pics inspired by words – whether from songs, books, poems, movies – feel free to add them to this group! Just be sure to let us know what inspired you. I am gonna aim to do one of these at least once a month because they’re fun!

Here’s the link to the video. It may not play if you’re outside the US, but you can read the lyrics here. Also, for those who haven’t heard it before, “snapback” is a nickname for that sort of baseball cap because they often involve plastic snaps.

Fantastical Adventures

If you enjoy role play or fantasy in SL, there are multiple events going on right now that you should definitely not miss! First, I want to point out Fantasy Faire because this RFL event is for a great cause (to raise money for cancer research), and it ends on Sunday! There are a LOT of sims to this event, but fortunately the organizers have created a great page on their website that will help make navigation a bit easier.

The dress I am wearing in the picture below is from Luminary. This is the RFL donation color, and the dress is named Annette. Augurer of Luminary wrote “Why I Relay” notecards and put them in each demo box. Each outfit she did has the name of someone close to her, someone who has battled cancer. These personal stories really tugged at my heart, and the dress I’m wearing was named in honor of her cousin who has twice beaten breast cancer. I think this story resonated with me because in the past three years my grandmother’s beaten not one, but two separate types of breast cancer (and also a third cancer, a rare form of lung cancer). I plan to share why I relay soon, but in the meantime, please be sure to check out this fabulous event. Luminary is located on the Hopes Horizon sim.

The beautiful table set is Senza from Pixel Mode for The Garden’s Tuscan inspired edition, which ends on the 10th.

Sustenance

Also, from The Garden is this beautiful wine platter from Ispachi. I figured you can never have too much wine, fruit and cheese! The hair you see in both of these pics is from Calico for We ❤ Role-Play.

Wine & Cheese

The Fantasy Collective’s current round has a pirate theme. It’s a lot of fun, and it gave me an excuse to go buy this awesome dress from Junbug. You’ll find the hair from Tableau Vivant at the event, as well as the table and the grog and gold (which came from the O.M.E.N/Moi collaboration item). The food is from Ginger Line’s Farmers’ Snacks set, which is available at We ❤ Role-Play. It's We Love Role-Play's first birthday, and if you've not been to this event you're definitely missing out!
