Oh, you should listen to your heart
Oh, it’s gonna tell you what you need
Take care of yourself
Don’t you worry ’bout me

We won’t break if we let go
You and I already know
We were bound to be set free
Eventually, so here we are now
You can say anything

You can say anything
You can say anything
You can say anything
Always say anything

{ My Yearbook Photo } Smile Challenge Meme

Strawberry Singh‘s back to doing her Monday Memes and I’m so glad I’m able to participate in one again.  I admit this one was pretty easy and straightforward and well, just plain fun!   All I had to do was bare my pearly pixel teef and snap a photo!  But it did take me back a bit to those days… picking out that perfect outfit you were going to wear for your school picture, thinking about how you’d wear your hair and trying to keep it perfect for picture time with an entire can of hairspray, pre-picture angst over that surprise pimple that would be captured for all eternity in your yearbook photo, and whether to smile with or without teeth, or not smile at all because.. well.. you know some teeth should remain hidden.

Yearbook_FINAL

The default SL avatar has a notoriously creepy looking smile most of the time.. erring a bit on the side of psychotic.  Thus came along many different alternatives to creating a ‘smile’ from teeth/alphas to an actual mesh mouth or in my case here, a mesh head that has several different expressions to choose from.  The mesh head I’m using is from Slink, called “Visage” and comes in 2 different shape styles: Emma and Becky. They’ve been around for quite a while now, however, not too many skinners in SL actually carry appliers for them. With so many mesh parts on the market, I think that skin creators just have their hands full keeping up.  This is the first skin I’ve ever purchased from Deetalez and I was quite pleased with how it turned out on the mesh head.  In the past I’ve used appliers from Glam Affair (here), Pink Fuel (here) and also from Izzie’s (here). The Mesh Project has had a lot of success with their mesh heads from what I’ve seen, but they also come at a much higher price.  At this point I haven’t been ready to spend that much to try one. The fun part about mesh heads is definitely the variety of facial expressions.  Some might say I cheated to achieve the more attractive looking smile for my yearbook photo, but I would say I was being resourceful :P.

And since we were on the topic of school, GizzA has just released a couple very cute and very plaid dresses that seemed to go right along this theme. I thought I’d get myself into double trouble and head on over to the location from this past weekend’s party at Elysion (an adult sim): “Fast Times at Elysion High”.  The amount of detail Syn puts into her themed party builds always amazes me and with a little PS magic I was able to put myself (twice) right back there for some afterschool extracurriculars… *ahem!* I mean… extra credit! I have always been a bit of an overachiever. Hehe.

Well if you want to join in the fun, definitely go check out Berry’s Yearbook Flickr Group and feel free to add your own smiley snapshot!  Stay cool and see ya round the halls. ❤
