As promised, I'm kicking off my return to the SL blogosphere by joining in Strawberry Singh's Monday Meme Challenge.  This week's challenge is the Avatar Transformation Challenge.  The instructions are ridiculously easy:  Transform your avatar completely so that even your friends wouldn't recognize you. 

I've been out of SL for a few years.  My remaining friends would probably not be surprised to find that I'm still usually a redhead sporting a glam princess look. Now that mesh is Queen, my skirts don't swish (unless a designer offers that perfect combo of mesh and flexi), but I can still rock a good ballgown or medieval princess look.

Before I reveal my transformation, let me introduce you to Lysi 2015 Style:

Location: Alirium
Hair: Truth Delphine
Skin: 7 Deadly s{K}ins March Group Gift (free to join for the next 13 days!)
Dress:  Junbug The Innocent-- Blush (Rare)--The Secret Affair (No Longer Available)

As an aside, since my return, I've turned over most of my Lindens to Junbug, especially 
their Gacha machines. *sigh*  If you're needing a common item from their most recent
Gachas (The Innocent, Midnight Fae, and Winter Cloak collections), send me a notecard 
in world, as I'm overrun with things I don't need.  I'm willing to give these away for free!

Now on to my transformation!

So yeah, when I transform I TRANSFORM, baby. Go big or go home!

Or I've lost my bloody mind, but we're having a blizzard, so now is as good a time as any.

I look like the Disco Duck, Fort Knox, and Cleopatra Jones had a baby.

Since I decided to go really retro, I dove into Lysi's Second Life Clothing Museum
*cough* aka my inventory.  Retro transformation begets retro clothing, natch? I'd LOVE 
to see this outfit transformed into mesh with materials. Wooh!

The majority of items used in the transformation may not be available.  
The skin is Uma from Rockberry.  The Studio 54 disco outfit, jewelry, and
tattoos are from aDivahowever it is no longer available for purchase 
(it's an oldie with system layers).  The shoes are ANE Old Gold Wrapped Heels 
from a past Arcade Gacha round.   The eyes were Ikon's February group gift. 

Currently (or possibly) available items:

The bodacious afro is No Tears, the current group gift from No Match (50L to join).

The equally bootyful shape is Curvy Soft from Ample Avi. It was a gift in the Peace
On Earth 7 hunt last year, but something similar may be available in store.

I'm rusty on both my blogging and SL photography skills, but I've got to start somewhere,
