Look of the Day: Three Goddesses from Blowpop

Annyka Bekkers, the talented designer behind the Blowpop brand, has released another fresh batch of tasty apparel items that you’re going to want to devour.  I was really tempted to cram it all into one huge post, but I decided I want to focus on each set separately because, frankly, I think her work deserves that kind of attention.

I’ve incorporated her Three Goddesses Tank & Panty set into this “look of the day” post.  Featuring the Tridevi of the three Hindu goddesses Saraswati, Lakshmi, and Parvati, the tank top is an eye-catching burst of colors that I knew I immediately wanted to pair up with jeans, my new Moccasin boots and Lennon glasses from Naughty, and my new hairstyle from Maitreya.

The Three Goddesses tank top comes in two lengths, and on a variety of clothing layers.  Yay for options like this!  You can mix and match with other clothing articles and/or tattoos, and decide whether you’re in the mood to show some midriff with those low waisted jeans.  😀

Going on to the other items in my LOTD photo:  I’m really glad Lost Thereian has started creating new items for the Naughty brand.  I’m pretty much in awe of his skill and attention to details.

I have a preference for glasses that are all primwork (it’s just a personal thing, really; I’ve also seen some very good-looking texture-type glasses) and so I was happy to find out that the Lennon glasses are all sculpted prims.  The prims that make up the wireframes are thin, delicate sculpts and I actually didn’t realize they were sculpted until I looked at them closely.  Call me spoiled, though; I’m used to buying scripted glasses that let me switch the position of the frames, control the texture color and opacity, etc.  These glasses are Copy/Modify, though, so I was able to make the tint on them lighter in about three seconds and I’m sure making a copy adjusted to fit up on my hair will be just as simple.  🙂  The glasses have really cute color names, too; names like Strawberry Fields Forever and Imagine (mine is Black Dog).  Carson bought the aviators, and they look great, too; I’m tempted to go back and buy a pair for myself!

I almost didn’t get the moccasin fringe boots because there weren’t any demos available in the store.  But, after a couple of visits to the shop that was spent looking at them longingly, I decided what the hell, I’ll just buy them… and I’m glad I did!  These boots do not require a system shoe base, and they’re Copy/Modify.  The fringe on them has great movement since they’re actually textured onto flexi prims.  The fringe texture also has a bit of shadow added to it, creating a look of realism that I really admire.

Finishing off my LOTD is the Green hairstyle from Maitreya.  I felt the slightly tousled look of it, with it’s locks twisted and casually draped over the shoulder, fit in perfectly with the easygoing feel of the rest of my outfit.  Because I wanted to show off the tank top without any hair covering it up, though, I’ve also worn friday’s cute Tatum hairstyle in the second photo.

  1. better do not put Goddess pics on shirts, you are hurting emotions of few people who love those goddess. why do you want to get into controversy.

  2. being a hindu, i don’t feel that indian gods should be used on tshirts, I don’t understand that religion is used as a fashion item? Do you ever see people following hinduism wear these kind of clothing pieces? Only others think they can make a fashion statement. Why not put jesus and maria on it.
