52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Electric Indigo

Today is my one-year blog anniversary, and what better way to celebrate than with a great color challenge???  I was actually thinking this was going to be a hard week, but the problem turned out to be too much indigo rather than not enough!

For our first electric color, I decided to honor Ben Franklin, that canny jack-of-all-trades that brought us greater understanding of the properties of electrical forces. (I stole that line from my scientifically-minded friend Stewart) While perhaps his key did not glow, and he definitely did not have as sassy a kite as I have, he certainly paved the way for future electric fabulousness. For those of you who don’t know the key story, you can read about it here.

Now for a couple of fabulous new items. First of all, Arkesh Baral at Mayfly has released her first mesh eyes. I have to admit to some uncertainty about how a mesh eye would work, but they were a cinch, and even better, they are resizeable so if the iris is too big or small you can adjust. And yes, they do work with the GI eye autofocus hud. All good so far! Oh, and did I mention how beautiful they are?

And last but not least, Maxi Gossamer is jumping on the mesh bandwagon with her gorgeous jewelry designs. These earrings were perfect for this week’s color, although I have to admit I loved all the colors that were available:

EARINGS - mother of pearl - FATPACK

And since it’s my blog anniversary, I wanted to do a little something on the fun side…so I will be giving away a fat pack of Maxi’s earrings to three lucky commenters on this post. Here’s how it will work: next Friday, January 20th, I will randomly choose three names from the list of comments. Please feel free to comment, even if you are not a blogger! The only restriction is that the prize will be delivered in-world and you must have a Second Life avatar name!

So many of you leave the sweetest and most encouraging comments here and this is my way of saying thanks for your wonderful camraderie. Here’s to you and to many more blog posts, my friends!
