It’s cold and rainy with possible ice incoming in RL so the only recipe to solve that sort of crisis is obviously to dress up in SL. I’m wearing a new release from Sacha’s designs that is so twinkly and glittery my video card can’t show it to you. It reminds me of what it would look like if taffeta and sequins had a baby. I know that’s crazy, they aren’t even both fabrics! What do they have in common? Continue reading →
They say the devil is in the details, but there is nothing devilish about this dress.
When Pixicat shared this dress as a Work In Progess on Plurk, I knew I had to have it. The details were so carefully wrought that anyone who loves great craftsmanship would admire the dress, whether it is their personal style or not. A lot of thought went into the design in ways to allow you to wear it as you please. For example, it comes with or without the white blouse, there’s a detachable bow you can opt to leave off, as I did. And then the lacy overskirt can be worn, as I did, or left off, as Gidge did in the previous post. On top of that, the lace overskirt it tintable so you could color it anything your heart desires.
The original title of this post was “If you go out in the woods today…” because it was going through my head while I was getting dressed. Then I went looking around on Honour McMillan’s blog for a good place to shoot and EXACTLY the place I wanted was found in a blog post by the same name. KISMET! But I figured, she just used that title, I know we’ve used it, I’ve got to come up with something new.
I realized I’m clearly headed to Grandmother’s in this outfit. Traditionally I’m taking her a basket of food as she’s sick. So obviously, in this version of the tale, Grandmother is going to be having three eyed cat soup. Right? Yum yum. Continue reading →
I was honored to be asked to DJ the first half of the Closing Party for Rouge, the incomparable sim that was the brainchild of Codebastard Redgrave (Codie) and Eshi Otawara. Because Rouge is Red and Red is Codie raison d’être, I knew I had to wear red, just as I did to the opening party back in July, 2008. With its dance poles and feather boa foliage, Rogue is a place to wear your naughty and flirtatious outfits, so I was thrilled that Azul released Likka, a brand new burlesque corset and skirt just in time for the party. How perfect is that.
Medieval scholars debated for years about whither art of nature. Eshi Otawara’s answer is art and nature, terraforming the land of Rouge into a work of art. Be sure to check out this photo from Oscar Page. I like it much better than mine.
We can imbue talismans with tremendous power through the powers of faith and suggestion. If you believe something will work for you; it often will. Monica Outlander of MiaMai has created in real life and now in Second Life®, a collection of talismanic sprites that can bring health and happiness to those who invest the power of belief in them. If your worldview is more prosaic and devoid of supernatural beliefs, they can also be enjoyed for their quirky adorability and the come with a magnificent free shelf that can be used to display these sprites, but I think I will also rez a few more of these shelves for otters things as well.
There’s also a home protection sprite hanging on a branch that is equally adorable. The gorgeous house is the Hudson Townhouse from Scarlet Creative and can be found at Collabor88 this month. Continue reading →
Remarkable Oblivion has released some gear that’s perfect for those of you still seeking to traverse the grid in a more dystopian setting. Personally, in a dystopia I feel that being a stylist would be a really valued role – after all – who wants to be UGLY under their gear? NO ONE, that’s who! Continue reading →
I’ve been playing in ARCADE items today and the VCO Fairy Mesh Heads have caught my fancy. I don’t wear mesh heads regularly but this is pretty cute, and there is a nice selection of them if something you enjoy. I really love that you can choose your eyes, and hairbase via hud, makes it nice to switch up your look or keep it close to your avatar’s look for hair matching etc. Continue reading →
Like Athena bursting from Zeus’ head, I leaped awake today realizing that THE ARCADE is almost here! Do you have a system? Do you make plans? How do you ARCADE?
I always start with the Shopping Guide, it really shows me who my must haves are each round and gives me ideas for little gift giving things too, like the post apocalyptic stuff for Codie. And maybe something for some of you – who knows? Continue reading →
“I think baking cookies is equal to Queen Victoria running an empire. There’s no difference in how seriously you take the job, how serious you approach your whole life.” ~ Martha Stewart
Cookies are a valid breakfast. I decided this morning that only cookies would do, and at the same time I realized there are “breakfast cookies” and “diet cookies” and this really means that cookies are now officially a good for you food, right? I mean, these people who market these products wouldn’t lie to us, correct? For that reason I’m pursuing a cookie filled breakfast. If loving cookies is wrong, I don’t want to be right.
