Impervious to Cold

The season of cold impervious avatars has begun

Every holiday season I am amused by our avatar’s seeming imperviousness to cold. We rush about with open-toed shoes and barely there dresses in the snow and ice and not one of us feels a bit of cold. This gorgeous dress by Cynful for Collabor88 would be all covered up by a heavy coat in the real world.

The days of winter sunshine

“This winter, there will be no voices, no glimpses, no arms. only the fabric of poetry, to keep me warm.”

“Are the days of winter sunshine just as sad for you, too? When it is misty, in the evenings, and I am out walking by myself, it seems to me that the rain is falling through my heart and causing it to crumble into ruins.”

Wintering Wandering

I went wandering in search of winter and holiday fun yesterday. I found a lovely sim – really a bit of a bloggers paradise in terms of great little spots to shoot. It’s also a great little spot just to be with tons of great little winter activities scattered throughout.

I stopped by the Christmas tree lot and wished I had considered a real tree for my own home. Hmmm, do I have room for another tree? I wonder…nah. I really don’t. But it’s fun to consider for sure.

I wandered and enjoyed the scenery for quite a while, enjoying a holiday coffee and just soaking in how beautiful SL can be some days.  It’s too bad you can’t smell the things here – I know how crisp this snowy landscape would smell, and the way the sounds would all be hushed by the deep layers of white fluff. I missed that, I’m glad winter has returned.

Today I’m wearing part of the amazing winter set from Osmia for The Arcade. I feel like this creator must have a strong love of winter adventures given how lovely the entire set is. It’s designed for a winter wander and fun in snowy, cold climate. I love it. Continue reading

Tick, Tock, It's Soon Arcade O'Clock
The Arcade opens in just over three hours. December if my favorite month for The Arcade. The holidays seems to inspire such whimsy and grace. Also, since everything is No Copy for trading, it’s a great place to buy gifts. My outfit comes from Collabor88 items (except the fun candycane tights that were a Christmas gift from Alaska Metro last year. Sorry, I am an evil blogger, but not totally evil, they are on marketplace.

The Arcade kicks off tomorrow and I’m exciting for the December round as always. There is something wonderful about this round each year, whether it’s the generous gifts the creators leave under the tree or just the amazing items to bring holiday spirit to our pixel homes.

Studio Time is Cynful

I’m starting my week in the studio with the outfit I chose to go out dancing this past weekend. My friend Maht was hosting at the Velvet, and I hadn’t been there forever. This clingy dress from Cynful that you can still pick up at Collabor88 this month was the perfect choice for a night of dancing away my worries.

Not that I have worries. Please.

I do love the wrinkles and the clingy look of this dress. It’s wonderfully done.

My hair is also from Collabor88 this month. Don’t forget you’ve got time to go by and pick up the goodies if you’re haven’t been. All the goodness awaits you! Continue reading
