The Plastik…..and other sundries.

When Aikea Rieko of The Plastik sent me along some new Tanks for review, I thought it would be fun to take a look at different ways of styling them. They remind of those bags, or tops that we would make for ourselves out old jeans, when I was younger (it would take so long for jeans to get worked in that we were loath to just throw them away when we were done with them.) I first started shopping at (formerly Tokyo) The Plastik last winter when looking for those big baggy cargo pants which I still love. Since that time the store has expanded, and added skins, poses and a lot more clothing.
These are just 6 of the 30 colours of prototype tank available for purchase (210L for two, ripped up and ripped down). What with all the sales, Fridays, Group gifts, and new finds I didn’t have any problem coming up with numerous combinations.
One of my most favourite hairmakers in SL has to be Kin Keiko. I still have pictures of myself 2 years ago (horrible photography…) wearing a pink manga inspired Elf hair (think really big..) and a Japanese mini. Like most of us I get in a rut sometimes with my hair shopping and when I do I mosey over to The Body Politik just to see what new styles Kin has on sale. These are just a few of the new styles and because they only cost 100L per colour, you can buy a bunch. I think this is the only store I buy pink hair from..
Tanks – The Plastik - Prototype-Incense (tornlow), Jungle (tornlow), Retro (tornup). Hair – Kin – Eva (brown), Kasia (pink), River (white).
Tanks – The Plastik - Prototype – Toxic (tornlow), Woodcut (tornup), Starfield (tornlow). Hair – Kin – Ryou (cherry), Maeva (blonde), Astri (orange).

All Pictures taken using Glitterati Poses. Pose packs are currently on sale for 100L and I have to say that I like these poses very much. Well positioned, with no odd angles on the body yet still interesting. No twisty necks or bent out of shape shoulders, wrists or waist!
