Reading the notecard from Lucie Bluebird who I have long followed via her blog and Flickr, I knew instantly I was going to participate in the Raid Your Closet Challenge. If nothing more than to have a bit of fun whilst sorting out inventory!
Relishing in the excuse to break from essay writing, wasn’t long before YouTube was grooving to the beats of the 60’s and 70’s to match my outfit. With feet tapping away the words from Venus by Shocking Blue left me in fits of giggles as I began to think about Mr. P.
I know what you cheeky people are all thinking. No no I was not imaging Mr. P as a goddess on a mountain top, although that thought does make me giggle! Those that follow this blog regularly know, Mr. P’s name is actually Achilles.
Borrowed from Greek mythology, Achilles was a Greek hero of the Trojan War of Troy (hence why Greece was the start for our recent honeymoon) and a central character of Iliad. The story goes that Achilles the warrior at birth was dipped into the river Styx making him invincible except for one flaw, a weakness in his heel where he had been held. (There are other versions, but I like this one best.) Near the end of the Trojan War, Paris (which funny enough is my SL twin brother’s name) shot an arrow into the heel of Achilles leaving him dead. I wonder if this is why Paris wanted to meet Achilles the night we eloped?
I might need to contemplate on this longer but for now lets return to the serious business of anointing myself as a goddess. Especially given Venus is the goddess for all those good things like love, beauty, sex, fertility, prosperity and desire! Leaving out the historical fact that the Ancient Greeks and Roman’s attempted to make one another extinct I reckon it makes perfect sense that when it comes to love, a Greek God would indeed fall for a Roman Goddess. It’s all in the eyes, the song says so! As for the Raid Your Closet Challenge (RYCC 3.0) it started on May the 1st and runs the entire month. Digging into the depths of your inventory construct a different look each week (you can participate more often if you wish) but all items in the photograph must have been owned PRIOR to May 1st, 2015. You can have “exceptions” but they need to be stated in your first post. So here is my list of exceptions which probably will not change in the weekly photo:
* shape, skin, eyelashes, eyes and mesh body
* slink hand/feet attachments and wedding ring

Pictures can be posted to the RYCC flickr group: www.flickr.com/groups/rycc/ Before I roll onto the credits, I’m going to lay down a dare for that sexy Greek warrior, Mr. P. If indeed you are invincible; maybe it is time to come conquer Rome *winks* What do you think, has the Greek God got what it takes ? Be kind to one another, I am off to eat grapes and be all Goddess like.
