Blue World Style: Hit the Beach in Blue Mars

Many parts of North America have received their first snowfall of the season recently, and as a result a lot of us are probably pining for the beautifully beachy days of the summer. One of the best things about virtual worlds in my opinion is that they put the seasons at your mercy, so you can wear whatever you want whenever you want, rain or shine! I ducked over to the palm-covered islands of Pavonis (Blink Teleport here) and slipped into my favorite bikini for a small photoshoot that will hopefully help you feel a little closer to those warmer southern climates.

  • There are a few different bikinis available to choose from in Blue Mars. Of course the default black bikini is a very versatile option, but if you want something a bit wild with an '80s vibe, try GrabJo in Shade City (Blink Teleport Here). More me, I've picked the sporty pink bikini from Moxxi in Port Town (Blink Teleport Here). As always with Moxxi's designs, the subtle details in the mesh and in the texture work together to make a really striking and realistic piece of clothing that sits perfectly on the avatar body.
  • As for sandals, the black strappy pair in Blue Mars' default inventory would go nicely with anything, but since I'm committed to a sportier look, I've opted for a pair of buckled leather thong sandals from 8502.Bauhaus in GridRock City (Blink Teleport Here). For something a bit trendier, you may want to try their gladiator sandals on instead.
  • It was a little overcast in Pavonis while I was there, so I decided not to wear sunglasses. However, if you want a really edgy pair with mirror-finish lenses in a couple different colors, check out Farthest Star in Tharsis Estates (Blink Teleport Here), or Sketchy Fever (also in Tharsis) for a slightly more classic-looking pair.
