In case you were ever wondering what the seemingly nonsense are in the Laverne & Shirley theme song, they are actually Yiddish. Shlemiel meaning a stupid, awkward, or unlucky person, and Shlimazel being a close synonym at a consistently unlucky or accident-prone person. I love that show, I remember watching reruns as a kid, and always laughing. Even though Shirley always had Carmine as a boyfriend, it always seemed an immature relationship, even to me as a kid. Of course, that immaturity was very obvious with Shirley’s attachment to Booboo Kitty. Fun fact about Booboo Kitty’s origin. It was originally a blooper, when Cindy Williams forgot her line about dust bunnies, and pulled out a stuffed cat from under the bad and called it the name of her mother’s cat, Booboo Kitty. Everyone loved it and it eventually turned into Shirley having an actual relationship with the stuffed toy. Not that Booboo Kitty wasn’t awesome, it was. Gotta love this commercial of Shirley and Booboo Kitty from Nick at Night!
Really Rockabilly! Has a recent release, I would say new, if I hadn’t been a Shlemiel and got it blogged earlier! These hot little shorts and bustier in a fantastic black and pink design are covered with Booboo kitties! The matching mesh scarf is included. It comes in tons of sizes:
- Slink -Physique and Hourglass
- Tonic Fine and Curvy
- Belleza -Freya, Isis, and Venus
I totally love it! I’ve been waiting for a great summer Rockabilly look, and of course, always love anything whimsical. Zef Brody, the owner, and designer for Really Rockabilly always teases me about my breast size, and I remembered the above commercial from Nick at Night long ago, with Shirley stuffing her dress, and while mine isn’t stuffed, sometimes I feel people view my avatar that way! FYI, Really Rockabilly! is a designer for the Grow Your Awareness Hunt that I am organizing for April.
My shoes I’ve blogged before, and I think I remember mentioning that the Alyce Slink Mary Jane’s had an RGB hud that is included as well as the HUD of colors and patterns. If I didn’t then I was remiss, they have it! Zef was kind enough to give me the RGB for the pink in the Booboo kitty outfit design so I was able to perfectly match these fun retro shoes. That RGB is red 185, green 68, blue 89, hue 349, sat 46, lum 50. Of course, I picked the black laces and heels on the hud, as the choice was either black or white, no rgb here.
My hair is unavailable, I picked it up as a gift at an event last winter, and couldn’t find it in the store or mp, and a notecard to the designer remained unanswered. It was a blonde hair, but I wanted to note that Tameless often allows hair to be colored via the edit screen so I was able to choose black and transform the blonde into my usual color.
Everything else, except my glasses, has been blogged before, and I want to talk about my glasses. I started an in-world group for my blog, for chat, sharing of freebies and deals, and a little clubhouse. In the clubhouse, I have set up a photo booth, with colored lights, 3 different spotlights to make those fun shadows that turn off and on, and a pose stand with over 300 poses. Additionally, if you ask in chat, there’s a sits and a stands pose stand that myself can help you with if needed for some pics! All the information for the Grow Your Awareness Hunt is located here, along with group joiners for a few groups that specialize in freebies that I discuss, such as FabFree and The Free Dove. But the best part is that I designed these special shiny mauve glasses, with metal studs as a group gift. Hop down to Missy’s Getaway, enjoy the furniture, the photo studio, and pick up these glasses for yourself! They are copy and modify so you can get the perfect shape, or shade them darker if you wish. The group is FREE to join, making the glasses FREE, and the use of all 300+ poses for your pics FREE! Now there’s no excuse not to head down to The Free Dove, pick out an outfit, head to my photo studio and snap a pic and post it to my Facebook and get a care package from me!
