Dress Me Up in… Weirdiculous! (by Paulina Oceanlane)

Filed under: Challenge,Designer Tribute,Dress Me Up!,Mix and Match — Candy Lemmon @ 1:41 pm

We finally reached the end of our “Dress Me Up!” request list, and I think I’ve saved the best for last! These challenges have had us going in a million directions – from ballgowns to sweatpants to samurai swords – but this one has us breaking our molds to pieces. When Paulina Oceanlane styled us in Weirdiculous and urged, “The dorkier the better!”, it inspired us to give the DP YumYum CSR bunny avatars a try.

If you’ve never been to Paulina and the girls’ page, “Who Let the Dorks Out?“, go now. Van and I are regular readers, it’s like a sexy magnet for all that great stuff in SL that makes you smile and laugh. In true dork fashion, I’ve been wandering the grid looking a lot less playboy and lot more bunny, and I have to say it feels delightful. The overall selection at Weirdiculous is MUCH more colorful than the looks I’ve chosen here, but I’m still a fashion bunneh, and I decided on a “Geek Chic” approach. That, and I’ve always wanted to wear Bjork’s swan dress. I found a match for her hairstyle in House of Heart’s Jordan, and I chose some simple pumps to keep the focus on the unique design.

I knew Van would look cute in the “Nerd Boy” outfit, but Bunny-Van looks cuter than a kitten cuddling with a puppy. The set is packed with this entire look, including his prim bow-tie and shoes, not to mention a skin and shape to match. The fanny-pack alone convinced me to buy it, it actually contains a protractor and ruler(!), and is a perfect example of the awesomely bad creations available in the store. He edited Antonia Marat’s taped Buddy Holly glasses to fit and we both had to do a lot of modding for our hair, but it was a treat to see my bunny-boyfriend in Armidi’s classic Poynter.

Thanks to everyone who played the Dress-Up Game with us, and another special thank you to Ach – who even makes it look cool to go furreh.

  1. Waaaaaah, you look awesome. I love the CSR bunnies anyway, and you totally dorked them out to an extreme cuteness. <3

  2. Hi — Your pictures are lovely but weigh in the 2.5 megs area which takes a LONG time for some folks to load. Slow for me and I am at 6157 kbps. Just wanted you to know. Some compression would no doubt be appreciated — especially by the slower broadband folks. Cheers.

  4. I LOVE this so much! Of course, even as a bunny, Candy, you still look so elegant in that swan dress in the magical forest. :D And the nerd bunny boy is hilarious! Oh, you have no idea you much this post made me smile. :)))
