Today, my submission for the Week of Pictures group in Flickr is based upon the movie “Cabaret” which was released in 1972. This movie won multiple Academy awards and became iconic in many ways. It lifted the star, Liza Minelli, to the forefront and she too became somewhat of an icon. Amazing as we look back today to those that were the stars of the past, so many have had troubled lives and surprisingly, this seems to never change with the times.
Recently I was in Glam Affair and found an outfit I liked, and when I tried it on… I realized that it would work as my interpretation of “Cabaret”. I then had to find hair, and off I went to search finding a suitable version at L’Emporio Di Bru. The fun part is that this hair comes with the hat and the creator includes the hat alone too! My stockings are from LaVie, and the shoes are from LeLutka. As this is my interpretation, I stuck with a freckled skin from Curio and kept the hair in red!
Now… to find a suitable stage in Second Life! I could have built a stage or bought a set, but I really wanted to go for a location site. I went to quite a few sites advertised as burlesque or cabaret clubs. Most did not work…either too modern, too bare, too primitive or just not right. I finally found Ellie’s Burlesque Club and thought…red curtain, lit stage…yes, this was suitable. Once there, I flew through poses and found a great one from a burlesque set from Just A Pose. Then it was snap, snap, snap! Back to Photoshop and some editing to enhance the photo and give it some depth… and WHEW…. day two’s submission for Week of Movies was done. I present my interpretation of “Cabaret” here….
“Start by admitting, From cradle to tomb
It isn’t that a long a stay.
Life is a Cabaret, old chum,
It’s only a Cabaret, old chum
And I love a Cabaret.”
Off to the movies… catch you soon!
