It is getting colder outside and it makes me want to bundle up in sweaters and warm clothes, not only in Real Life, but in Second Life© as well. So I embarked today on a grid journey to look for Fall fashion. Let me tell you, there is not much out there yet to find. At some point, somewhat discouraged, I finally found myself standing in front of a short fur jacket. It was the Bear Jacket (comes in Brown, Blue, and Red), created by the fashion house Baiastice. This is a short and very elegant fur, with three-quarter sleeves. I will not lie, I loved it, but was at the same time incredibly conflicted about getting it. I would never buy a fur in Real Life, I am principally against it (I wont even wear used fur from second-hand stores)! So how could I possibly justify getting one in Second Life? Well, let me suggest, if you are a Real Life anti-fur person like me, there are at least two ways of looking at this. One, you could stick to your guns, stick up for your Real Life belief and not get fur in Second Life either. After all, the fur you purchase in Second Life is a symbol of something you are against in your Real Life. Or, two, you could get a fur in Second Life, taking this opportunity to wear fur since no animals were killed when making it. Just the act of purchasing the fur itself somehow didn’t sit right with me, but I decided to go ahead and buy it anyway. Very tricky indeed.
