Hi! My name is Aeryn......

.....and I am Crighton's alt.


Where do I begin....

Months ago, I was dicking around with some friends at Sporks and I donned my Head Nurse avatar, which I will not show here, as she causes blindness and mental illness. My friends, well, they were less than kind. And I decided that I would show them, by turning that big, hidddeous creature into a ravishing beauty. Eventually, this became a battle that lasted after that party was over. And it continued on for weeks. At that point I didn't have an alt, it was just Crighton being a girl. But one night, a couple of friends encouraged me and I created an alt. Aeryn Lovenkraft. What started as a joke became somewhat of an obsession and a battle, me against the SL female form. Once I got her shape the way I wanted, and I had found the skin that worked with her, I started shopping! And, the rest is history. Shopping for guys stuff on SL is so freaking boring. But man, let me start shopping for Aeryn, and I could go all night. And then I started hair shopping. And then I fell in love with boots. All kinds of boots. And I discovered something. I actually had a good eye for fashion and hair and boots. I will admit, I just don't have the patience and the time to accessorize properly. Shoot me, okay?

Part of why I created Aeryn was to create some space for me. It was a kind of selfish way to have some time alone and to do something different. A weird thing happened along the way. I went to a live music event and some guy started chatting and, well, you know. He liked At this point, I realized I had to figure out a way to deal with amorous fellas. I toyed with the idea of dating, but realized I could not do it. It felt wrong and dishonest. I put myself in the guy's shoes and if that were me, I would be pissed! I was willing to consider dating, just for the experience, but I could not deal with the repercussions of possibly hurting someone else, and as I said, it just felt dishonest. It's one thing to innocently socialize and shop, but quite another to get involved with someone.

So Aeryn is a virgin. Sadly. I may one day log both her and Crighton in and go ahead and fuck myself silly. There may be another post in that for you guys, huh? Pics too? :-)

It has been interesting to say the least. I've noticed that Aeryn seems to have her own personality when I settle in to SL with her. I'm very proud of how she looks and dresses. I have been ridiculed for a couple of my outfits, but I think there may be jealousy at work there. You know how women are. :-D I'm sure that some will run with this revelation and think the worst. I ended up being introduced to a friend the other night and had to let him know who I was before it got weird. I also had a bit of fun last week by logging both Crighton and Aeryn on and wearing the same shape, skin, hair, and outfit and hung out at the Bee Hive together. That was fun, once everyone figured out what the fuck I was doing.

I realize this post has been horribly disjointed, and I'm sorry for that. I'm not redoing it Lots going on today. Why is this so much fun for me? I have no idea, really. I love the playing and shopping parts. I have got a kick out of the occasion idiot asking me to "make sexy" with him. I have had an old friend of Crighton's get fresh with me, which I would feel bad about if the guy wasn't such a dickhead. It's been enlightening and somewhat confusing at times. I have very much enjoyed hanging out with various female friends of mine, acting as they much as I can, that is. I thank them for humoring me. I have had a blast hanging out with my wife from time to time.....we're so good together. It's been refreshing. I've had fun shopping with Joonie and I even enjoyed being chastised for my occasional wardrobe mis-steps. I know that some think I'm strange, but you know what? I'm not hurting anyone and I'm just exploring and having fun. Today, I spent a decent chunk of time picking out the outfits in these pics and uploading them. Why? I don't know...maybe I'm looking for some type of approval and acceptance. I am proud of Aeryn, and I guess I wanted to show her off. I hope you like her. If you see her/me out and about, say Hi and maybe we'll shop together! This last pic is of me and Joonie on her skybox after a night of AO shopping and terraforming. Yes, we are a couple of versatile babes!! And we look good doing it to! And by doing it I mean terraforming and shopping. I'm not THAT lucky....yet!

Aeryn is an excellent shopping hostess with a wide collection of high quality shopping spots. She is THE girl (?) to hang with. She provided excellent assistance to SheD :)

Your photography is excellent. That girl(?) should model :)

The last picture..the hair..

I want it.


No, seriously.

Crighton Johin said...

ETD Maaliyah. Would it scare you to know I have it in like four colors...wait, more like six. Damn ETD sale....

You would not believe how many times Jenda would ask me, "Where did you get that hair/outfit/boots/etc?" It's scary...truly scary.

And a source of great pride. As a proud man, I take great pride in my taste in women's fashion.

*nods and bursts out laughing*

Crighton Johin said...

Oh...and Joonie? You know the answer to the question of whether I've lost my mind.


Joonie Jatho said...

Yes Crighton..I do know the answer! lol How does it feel to be out of the fashionista closet?


Hugs! JJ

Jenda Starbrook said...

I hate it that my husband is prettier than I am in SL. YOU WHORE!!!

Joonie Jatho said...

Crighton Johin said...

It depends on what hair you're asking about. ETD, Deviant Kitties and Armidi are represented here. And I am not a girl. I play on on TV...errr.....SL.....wait....who am I?

New post coming tomorrow...I think.
