Blame It On The Rain

I love the rain. I love listening to thunderstorms and curling up with a good book while raindrops beat against the window. And I love the way the air smells just after a soft, spring shower. It's no surprise then, that I also love umbrellas and rainboots. Think back to when you were a child and how much fun you had splashing around in puddles. Brings a smile to your face, doesn't it?

When I received notice that Torrid Midnight released her Paraplu Pose Set and AO, I knew immediately that I had to have it! The paraplu, or umbrella, comes in two versions, open and closed, and features scripted color and texture change. Or you can custom modify your umbrella as I have done here. The pose set also includes ten poses.
The AO comes with the umbrella, also scripted with seven textures, four stands, a walk, hover, sit and ground sit animations. Perfect for a day of there is no need to let a little drizzle keep you away from the boutiques!

For my day of shopping, I've chosen a classic Trench from Armidi Gisaci and wellies from Urban Bomb Unit. The breezy blue color is the perfect offset for my red paraplu and the polka-dotted boots add just a touch of whimsy. I'm all set for some singing in the rain...come rain or come shine.
