The theme for this challenge was "Day & Night", we were supposed to put together two outfits: one for day-time work and one for a party in the evening. There had to be at least one same piece of clothing in both outfits, while the other clothes and accessories changed. I loved this challenge, though it was definitely challenging as well! The hardest part was trying to stay true to Carmen's character and coming up with outfits that she would actually wear.
On another note, in these photos Carmen is wearing her new wig that I got in the mail just a few days before taking the photos for the challenge. This is finally the right wig for her, the one that I'm 100% happy with! I had been having some bonding issues with Carmen due to the lack of a perfect wig, but now she's looking just the way I've always wanted and that makes me super happy! ♥
There are three things that remain the same in her day and night outfits: the white tank top, necklace and handbag. In this day outfit she's also wearing a pair of denim shorts, matching denim shoes and a simple black blouse. The wrist clock was shamelessly
stolen borrowed from Sarg's Eemil :'D As Carmen works in an office, I tried to create an office-like environment with the few SD sized furniture that we have... In our story Xymox offices are definitely much more stylish than this, but oh well XD
Oh and it just occurred to me as I'm writing this post that I should've replaced that Apple logo on the laptop with a Xymox logo, it would've been such a nice little detail D:
As for the night look, unfortunately I only have this one photo ^^; The leather on the jacket is so thick and stiff that she can't really bend her arms much, which makes it harder to pose her and that didn't inspire me to take more photos of this outfit... I tried to make it look like she's walking in a night club or something, not sure if I succeeded at that at all hahah XD I'm happy with the outfit itself though!
The next challenge is already up and this time it's jungle-themed! I honestly have no idea what to do for that challenge yet, but hopefully I'll figure out something~ The deadline for submitting the challenge photo is May 15th, so there's still a lot of time to think :)
