James Bond is one of my favorite fictional characters and it made me wonder what if James had been "Jane" instead. She would definitely have class and look very stylish as she infiltrated a villain's lair and stopped the nuclear bomb from detonating right in the nick of time.
At least I get to dress up like Jane Bond thanks to this month's round of Collabor88. The theme for February at Collabor88 is "Espionage". I was able to find all that I needed to look like a first class spy.
The first item I found was the dress that I envisioned Jane Bond would wear on am mission. It's the Nikita dress from Dead Dollz. It's a classic sleek style that fits like a glove. After all when running after the villain it's no good to wear something loose. Of course the evening would always start at a party so it would be necessary to wear something to fit in. The Nikita dress is available in eight stylish colors at Collabor88 and is made especially for the Maitreya Lara mesh body. There is a gold zipper on the back of the dress and it comes in a "zipped" and an "unzipped" version.
The foot wear of a super spy would have to also be functional as well as fabulous looking. The NIKA heels from N-Core are perfect for this. The style of the heels is very simple and elegant and can be worn with anything. These heels also fill the need to have an extra pistol handy to help get out of any jam that a spy might encounter. The gun and holster are removeable in case they are worn at an occasion where an extra gun isn't needed.
The NIKA heels are available in a myriad of colors and are made not only for N-Core high feet but Belleza, Maitreya, Slink and TMP high feet as well. Also included with the purchase of these shoes at Collabor88 are a gold and silver pistol that you can wear in your hand.
I should also note that the hair I have on is called Banshee and is the offering from Lamb at Collabor88. Also the props in the pics (briefcase and gun target dummies) are also available at Collabor88 from Soy. Every self respecting spy should have her own set of gun target dummies with which to practice when not on a mission so these ones come with six poses. The briefcase is needed to carry money or super secret map to a villain's lair.
So my mission to acquire a fabulous spy look and become Jane Bond has been successful. Now I am ready to save the world!
