'Tis the season, and if you have any doubts about it all you have to do is look at Blue Mars' seasonal events schedule. I love wearing cute coats, sweaters, and boots on my avatar, especially during the holiday season. There's novelty in wearing weather-appropriate clothing in virtual worlds. While the climate doesn't physically affect you, it gives your avatar a touch of humanity to pretend that it does. So what is it that I'm wearing today to keep away the chill?
I picked up this hooded red thermal vest from an otherwise empty shop in Shade City (Blink teleport here). This vest is made by Electric Geisha Pty Ltd, who also made one of my favorite skirts in Blue Mars, the Paper Ruffle Skirt available in Beach City. This cute cropped vest could do with a few differently colored versions, but beyond that it stands among some of the most well executed pieces of clothing in Blue Mars. The mesh as well as the shading and detailing on this toasty red hoodie work together to create a realistic and flattering garment. I would really love to see Electric Geisha develop their line further because the few designs that they've released show so much promise.
If you want to coordinate this vest like I have, I'd recommend heading a few doors down from Electric Geisha's Shade City location to Role to pick up one of their versatile turtleneck sweaters. They're yet another Blue Mars wardrobe staple.
