11/06/2018 – Vintage Fair – Part 5

Oh hi!! The weather in SL was beautiful this morning and I decided to go to the beach. I rummaged through the gorgeous designs from Vintage Fair and found the perfect outfit. I absolutely love the 50’s vibe of this swimsuit from LX, it’s completely what I would wear RL. It comes in 8 adorable patterns, I had a hard time deciding on a favourite! My hairdo from Iconic is just short enough to not be a hassle at the beach, and the stunning art nouveau jewelry set from Bliensen + MaiTai just makes it all perfect! Now, where’s my sunscreen?

08/06/2018 – Vintage Fair – Part 3

Today’s the day! Vintage Fair opens at noon SLT, and will stay open until the 24th. Please keep in mind your avatar complexity must remain under 50K, otherwise you’ll automatically get booted. My advice? Detach all, wear a full alpha layer and only that, complexity : 0. Makes the event easier to experience, not only for you, but for everyone else too. You can also derender other people : world -> show friends only.

I’m wearing a skin from ND/MD, that wasn’t originally designed for LeLutka heads, but for Catwa, but I liked the look on the picture, and it includes Omega appliers so I tried it on. It looks amazing, except for the mouth that doesn’t look good at all. But I was able to fix that easily with one of Izzie’s nude lipsticks. I highly recommend trying a demo, but this skin is really worth it.

I don’t get the smoking in SL. I’m a smoker in RL (well not at the moment for baby bump reasons) but I never got the appeal for cigarettes in SL. My avatar is a better version of me, smoother skin, finer features, perkier boobs… I can play with piercings and tattoos at times because, unlike in real life, they can be removed quickly and painlessly, and obviously she’s a non-smoker. But when I unpacked this cigarette with mouthpiece from Dreamcatcher I knew I just had to show you. It comes with poses but I used another pose pack, also from Vintage Fair, that’s called Moonlight and Martinis, and includes a cigarette too, as well as a glass of… Martini! As usual, you’ll find all the credits after the pictures!

After the Doom

I come in to the settlements to get news or when it’s barter time, just to make an appearance.  It’s important not to be forgotten out here. Not that anyone would be likely to be helpful if there was help that was needed. It’s more about position, about who you are in the grand scheme of things.

I don’t barter.

I take what I want and everyone can just like it or not.  Mostly, I don’t take anything. No need to create friction, unless I just feel like having a fight. Mostly I don’t.

I come in to the main settlement every few weeks and wander around the perimeter. You never know what you’re going to find in the settlements, newcomers, oldbies with an axe to grind that’s as old as glitchpants, or calm. I am not here for trouble, just to learn what’s new, and to remind them I’m here.

I’m always here.  Continue reading

28/05/2018 – Waiting for you at sunset.

Oh hello!! Did you know Uber is open? It has been crazy full for the past few days, but it should get easier now. I managed to get in though, and got myself the latest wonder from Truth, as well as that gorgeous top from Teefy. It’s sexier than what I usually wear, but somehow it feels classy on me. I covered my bosom a bit though, with a lovely necklace from Maxi Gossamer, she has regular sales, and this one was heavily discounted when I went.

Wander Away To Tempura

Since it’s not vacation if you don’t put on a swimsuit and do something lovely I decided to spend some time on the waterfront at Tempura Island which just happens to be near the vacation house I’m renting. Convenient, isn’t it? I thought so.

Tempura Island has been here for 10 years,  can you believe it? It’s one of my favorite places for photos, and I was reminded of that today wandering the grounds. It reminds me so much of why Second Life can be such an effective escape for a little while, so much beauty is all around us and in so many forms. It’s a wonder. Continue reading

Magical Forests and Comfortable Boots

I decided to take a hike for my Saturday afternoon activity. CAN YOU BELIEVE that in an inventory of ALMOST 140k items I don’t own one single item called “hiking boots”?  I, like you dear reader, am incredulous of this fact yet here we are. I didn’t own a pair and since I was off on vacation and CLEARLY can’t just teleport to a shop to pick up a pair I had to make due with what I had in my suitcase inventory.

Luckily I had JUST thing thing from ISON – perfectly suited to protect my feet from nymphs or sprites or bugs or whatever it was that is currently inhabiting this place I’m staying for the weekend. Continue reading
