Strange Citizen ~ Juana Manuel

La Costumière is a word the French use to describe someone who facilitates the costumes for theatrical productions. I can’t think of a better word to describe Juana, for whom SL is at once stage and dressing room and audience. I have known Juana since her first days in SL, and have been progressively dazzled by her growing assurance in how she presents herself to us. The costume she is wearing here reflects both her Spanish/American heritage and her interest in the rituals and customs of Meso-America. If this seems overly formal, sue me, I can’t help it. She is one cool chica.
