52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Patina

First of all, congratulations to the winners of the Maggie Set from Artistry by E!
1. Jasmine Ballinger (incidentally it’s her rez day so HAPPY REZ DAY!!!)
2. Aeva Nikolaidis

Now for today:

pa·ti·na
noun \pə-ˈtē-nə, ˈpa-tə-nə\
1a : a usually green film formed naturally on copper and bronze by long exposure or artificially (as by acids) and often valued aesthetically for its color
  b : a surface appearance of something grown beautiful especially with age or use
2: an appearance or aura that is derived from association, habit, or established character
3: a superficial covering or exterior
It’s the last definition that intrigued me, particularly as it relates to SL. What do you hide about yourself with your SL patina? Does your SL exterior cover up things about you? Is SL the ultimate patina? Ok, philosophical rambling over.
My patina today is comfortable and casual in great mesh pants from DCNY and a ruffled vest from Malt. I have the perfect  backdrop in one of Lily Ixtar’s rental cottages at Belle Bayou.

This week I am going to give away a few pair of Arkesh Baral’s new mesh eyes from Mayfly! I fell in love with them a few weeks ago, and what can I say? I must share the love! Winners will be able to pick out the mesh eye color of their choice, and Keshie has offered to throw in the system eyes as well in case there are a few of you out there that haven’t made the switch over to mesh yet. And if you haven’t seen the unbelievably huge variety of colors she has available, check them out here. Go ahead and leave a comment below, even if it’s just to say “gimme the eyes!!!”
