Inspired by films like The Matrix, Jackie Graves has built a fashion empire of virtual Leather, Latex, and Metal designs, including the Graves Gravity suit she’s wearing. I can’t tell you how intimidated / lame I felt showing up in a chiffon dress! Jackie was very sweet, still, I tried to snap these pix as fast as possible, just, you know, to be sure she didn’t feel the sudden urge to slice me to ribbons! 😛

    Jackie Graves does look like something coming straight out of a fantasy Matrix RPG. What a cool looking avatar, right up my street! 😉

      haha, you know, I’ve talked to her (IM) a few times, but I think maybe I haven’t actually *seen* her for 3 years!

      She’s always had a lot of style, but I guess she has gotten a little edgier! 🙂

        Another cool avatar, that one has a certain crash test dummy aesthetic going on.

          Aww… “crash test dummy”??

          I’m sure you mean “Moonbase Alpha”

          You know, I hadn’t really thought about that… since, of course, I’m an SL wear-frilly-dress person at heart… but I guess if you’re from the more “Gamer” / Combat sorts of worlds… Jackie Graves work might be fairly appealing…

          It still has a lot of that SL high fashion sense… with a dose of Latex / Rubber fetish… but it is more “aggressive” than a lot of the huge SL “fashion industry” that’s more like the RL fashion industry.

          Then again, it’s a big world and I’m sure there’s tons of designers IDK about… but, yes, of the ones I know Graves is pretty unique.

          We talked this time last year about doing a big performance with her “Poison” outfit which is kind of a paramilitary outfit with smashing berets and nasty thigh-strapped syringes. It was going to be 5 different color teams that parachuted down to the “Clash” site…

          hmm… maybe we should finally do that one…
