Secondlife Fashion from ReadMeri | (Meri)Cat on a Hot Tin Roof

Hot Tin Roof

There was a real fashion in the 1950s and 60s for very intense plays and movies. They were usually set in real time, with tense, brooding conversations and complex relationships (well, aren’t they all). The small casts would weave a spell of misery and mendacity so compelling that when you came out of the other end, you realised it felt like being suffocated and now you could finally breathe again. Elizabeth Taylor starred in the movie of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof with Paul Newman. She tended to play those roles – brittle, angry, resentful, twisted, manipulative and then surprisingly her vulnerability cuts through it, so you can empathise with her character. It’s a master-class in acting and not subtle by today’s standards, but still quite something to witness.

It’s also a bookmark in time, a chance to see the struggles each of the sexes faced, played out minute by minute. It’s a time when we (not me, for I wasn’t there, but we as people) were questioning the roles which society placed on us and feeling crushed by our failure to live up to them.

Why am I talking about this? Well, simply because Meri was sitting on the hot tin roof of this truck and it put me in mind of the film. Could I ramble on all day? Probably. Shall I stop? Most definitely 🙂

Meri wears:

Addams Skeleton Skinny Jean w/belt NEW! (Kustom9 opens 15th May)
Tableau Vivant Foxtrot Hair (Tableau Vivant Mainstore)
JD Roma Sandals (JD Mainstore)


These new Addams Skeleton Skinny Jeans are out on the 15th for the new round of Kustom9, which promises to be a corker. Addams has newly begun rigging mesh versions of their new releases for the Mesh Bodies – Maitreya Lara, Belleza Venus and Slink, plus including 5 standard sizes. There will be a range of colours available and, as you can see in my picture, you can chop and change so the knees and lower legs are in a different colour – supercool!
