Good Princess vs. Bad Princess!

Hey all you lovely glamouristas, Tesh here.

Let’s not deny it: sometimes we girls just need to feel like a princess ... you know, when we crave that extra li'l attention that we know we all (TOTALLY) deserve!! I was in prime Princess mode today but couldn't decide whether to be a good girl, traditional (fairytale) Good Princess, or a bad girl, modern (big city) Bad Princess. So I came up with 2 looks: one for each mood.

*NOTE: this "Bad Princess" outfit is not to be mistaken for "Naughty Princess." -- THAT will have to be another post, focused more on the straight-up smokin' SEXY, hee hee . . .

First up: Good Princess (she adores a good fairy tale). Ya know, it’s the usual -- so many toads, so few princes. Especially in SL! What’s a fashionista girl to do? Sigh. Oh and that's a toad btw that I'm kissing in the pic, lol. A real smelly one.

Next up: Bad Princess (this girl makes her own fairy tale). Hey, Bad Princess truly rules her own playground -- the big city. Just don't mess with her or she'll throw down some 'tude.

Yeah, kisses from cute guys are pretty much mandatory in Bad Princess' kingdom. Actually it’s like, the law.

Aaaah, sweet day. Nuthin’ like a little Prince action to wind it all down – preferably the tall, dark + handsome kind, with a few dancing skills. I highly recommend getting yourselves one of these as soon as possible. Kinda the ultimate accessory, hee hee.

Many many thanks to photographer Margaux Dufaux (ok she IS the most talented photog on the grid – go check out M2C Photography NOW!!) + to our male model Gavin McGinnis (one of my fave guys on the grid!!) for so generously donating their time + talents to this suuuperfun shoot.

Shot on location in SL in 2 drop-dead gorge SIMs: the hidden candy-pink princess castle floating above Betwixt and in the neon skyways of Sick (decayed Tokyo).
