The Hydrangea God Surveys His Minions

150502_003

From the bottom of the garden, enthroned in his earthenware pot,
the hydrangea god surveys his minions— Rosanna Warren (listen here)

Who does not love hydrangeas? They blossom with such abundance and generosity, their palette of colors at once delicate and wild. Oregon is awash in hydrangeas and their leaves are budding now. I thought I had seen every color of hydrangea until I saw this gown from Gizza with the black umbels of hydrangea. Now I know all about adding or subtracting aluminum phosphate to make soil more or less acidic or alkali to change hydrangea color, but how did they get black. I turned to Professor Google and learned they simply paint the umbels. However, the effort pays off with a gorgeous drape of hydrangeas for the neck and headpiece that accompany this gorgeous gown.

Serendipity shows her face again. These bracers from MiaMai for We <3 Role Play were in the same grouping of notices waiting for me when I logged in. They were sent with a few hours of each other. Now some might thing they are rough-hewn in contrast to the delicacy of the dress, but contrasts between hard and soft can be exciting and the silver petals on the braces are reminiscent of the hydrangea petals.

Pretty In Punk

150501_001

There are a few more shopping days left of the Pretty In Punk round of Collabor88 and you won’t want to miss it. Look at this gorgeous dress from ISON for this round. It comes in several solid colors and well as two plaids and these gorgeous stripes. I love ISON’s contemporary style, minimalist and fashion forward with just a few details that reflect the designer’s discipline. You will never hear Nina say “it’s over-designed” about anything from ISON because the designer in control.

Void Fill

PXL Creations has released a new skin with a new tone for Fantasy Faire complete with tattoos for your face if you want to embrace your animal huntress side. I’m hunting lately but it’s not an animal.

I’m hunting for something lost. I don’t know what it is, but I decided Omega Point was as good of a place to find it as anywhere. Continue reading

Fantasy Faire 2015 – Light Weaver

Fantasy Faire 2015 - Helena Stringer - Light Weaver - 1

Protector of magic,
Weaver of light,
guide us through the unyielding night.

Fly up high,
If you dare,
Shadows encroach and you must beware.

Forces unknown,
Wish to fight,
To hammer down those who shine bright.

Fear not,
One so fair,
I am here to heed your prayer.

A poem by Helena Stringer

 Fantasy Faire is only here for a short period of time, and while many of us wish it wasn’t so, and we could have the sims for a whole month, or more, it is not to be.

One Hunt, Three Heads and a Big Skin Sale

150426_002

I love the adorable floral blouse and skater skirt that NYU just released for the Wayward Hunt. You will have to hunt for it at the main store because this color will not be sold after the hunt is over. I always love separates because that gives me options to wear the pieces with other items.

I stopped by the beach at Terracotta but I did not wade in as I have new shoes from Ingenue (available at this month’s Collabor88 for now) and wanted to keep them dry.

Bloom

The bright yellow linen pants from Faster Pussycat and the loose white button-down shirt from erratic were a simple, but colorful outfit that hopefully is not lost in the colorful profusion of prints at Blossom the texture explosion at LEA22.

Get My Cup, Put Some Liquor In It

Despite my current space restraints I couldn’t resist installing the new bar from Trompe Loeil in my house. I needed “something” in this room and I’ve found it. A full service bar that works from BOTH sides – PERFECT!  Continue reading

Pardon Me, Is This Wall Taken ?

It’s never the best idea to blog in SL while on pain meds, at least not for me. If my fashion details are to be believed, i’m wearing four sets of hands and two heads right now.  I seem to look ok though, so I’m going with it. Who even knows? Continue reading

There’s Only So Much

Adam n Eve released appliers for the Lelutka mesh head and I had to try them out this morning. I wasn’t feeling like getting dressed. Who knew that I’d end up feeling not doing nothing for the rest of today, and this would be the sum of my accomplishments today? Well, it could be worse.

I could’ve said the word FUCK a record number of times in meetings today.

Oh wait, that actually happened. Nevermind. Oh well, I never claimed not to have a potty mouth.

I stopped by XIN, a sim I found in the Destination Guide. It’s a seedy urban sim,  just what I was looking for to complement the punk out fit from Emery for Collabor88.  The outfit features a sleeveless tank dress and a jean jacket with knit sleeves.
