From time to time in Second Life, I have been known to assume the aspect of dragons. The transformation may be as subtle as the appearance of silver scales on my skin… or as dramatic as this full anthro dragon avatar from JOMO.

As one who identifies with dragons — hence my name — I am partial to the Draco skins by Alia Baroque of Fallen Gods. I have several colors in this skin, and loved the new Opal color released in January, an ethereal mix with highlights of cyan and lilac. I have been eager to photograph it.
However when I wore the accessories that were included with the skin, I struggled with some confusion. Lacy wings, delicate flower petals, graceful butterflies… and… dragon scales?!? It seems incongruous; “delicate” is not a word often used in connection with dragons.
Readers of this blog will know that I have said, “I will wear a mesh head when I find one that suits me. Hasn’t happened yet.”
Well, it finally happened!
