I give up
I wanted to try Hybie’s “80′s Icon Blogger Challenge”, and when I googled “80′s Icon” my eyes immediately landed on this image of Madonna, from her “Desperately Seeking Susan” days.
I spent the rest of the afternoon trying to recreate this look, and pretty much failed. Maybe I’m not any good at this, maybe I’m too hard on myself, or maybe I should have picked something easier. But anyway, I’m posting it, cuz I spent way too much time not to.
I spent about an hour fiddling with my shape, trying to get something similar to Madonna’s face and ended up with something so hideous that my own shape was a better match. That hair has Exile written all over it, and I think, by flipping the photo, I got a decent match. The Tuli skin isn’t a bad match either, although the lips should have been more matte. I couldn’t find a gold striped blouse or a black glitter jacket, to save my life, so you have to settle for texture loaded on a prim, and a jacket that in no way resembles the original.
It was still fun trying, and hey, I learned something. I learned I can’t make shapes for sh*t! Thank goodness there are talented people in SL who can!
