New Mouth Because Why Not

“The mouth obeys poorly when the heart murmurs.”
~ Voltaire

There have been a few mesh mouths out, and I LIKED the way they looked but any time someone tried one on and said they liked it they also mentioned what editing they’d have to do in PS to “make it look right”.  I don’t mind putting on a filter to give a different look to a pic other than SL lighting but I won’t blur or whatever else to make products “look right”. If you can’t wear it around in SL without it looking nuts, I don’t think it’s a good value.  I don’t have PS so that’s also an issue but hey I COULD get it. I wouldn’t make products look ok with it though, I just have huge issues with that. Continue reading

In the Spirit

150218_007

I am literally in the spirit, the Spirit Charlotta blouse, pants and suspenders from this month’s Collabor88. The blouse comes in multiple versions so it can be worn with or without the suspenders and with other options than the pants. The pants are pleated so they are a bit big around the hips and taper to a cuff that reveals fabric matching the blouse. The suspenders come separately for maximum flexibility. I always like it when separates are truly separate pieces.

Scarlet Creative released a lovely townhouse at this month’s Collabor88 and I enjoyed decorating it, mostly with elements from Trompe Loeil, Floorplan. & Consignment, and junk for this month’s Collabor88 as well as some things from Apple Fall and ::db:: that I had in my inventor

When Builders Let You Make Your Own

150218_004

I was excited to see that Tegan Serin of floorplan. include a full perm texture with her Arrow Scroll for Collabor88. This allows us to change the appearance of the scroll, replacing the text with our own, for example. This does not let someone make them to resell because the form is not full-perm. She’s not the only one. The loveseat from Trompe Loeil which is also at Collabor88 included the textures for folks who like to customize their own.

Consignment & floorplan. C88 February!

Here you can see the original scroll with the other items from the Consignment and Floorplan. double date at Collabor88. The original scroll featured Sonnet 18 from Shakespeare, a beautiful poem, but I wanted something shorter. I decided to put up a quote about cats and am going to show you how I did it.

Pigalle from Baiastice

“It is better to offer no excuse than a bad one.” ~ George Washington

I had to look up the word Pigalle as I couldn’t place it. According to wikipedia it’s a place in Paris. It’s also a surname. There was a chanteuse named Anne Pigalle. There have been various things like theaters and bands with this name.

None of these were what I was thinking of.

It’s possible I don’t know this word after all. But, now I do.

That’s How the Boy Gets the Girl in the Movies

150214_003

I wore the Vivianne dress from Lassitude & Ennui (at Collabor88) when I DJ’ed at The Velvet’s Valentine’s Day party. It’s such a romantic dress with it’s froth of lace at the hem. One of my favorite songs I played for the party was “That’s How the Boy Gets the Girl in the Movies” by Emily West. I hope you will play the YouTube® visit. 

I heard it happens.
It’s never happened to me.

I stare by the window,
If he’s there, it’s only just a dream
Just a dream.

Birds in the sky will be singing the song.
The sun will be shining when his car pulls up.

Oh, I long for the day and the way it should be.
Expected temptations are waiting for me.

Cause that’s how the boy gets the girl in the movies.
Kisses that make her the star of the show.
He’ll buy you roses and make you feel pretty.
Hold the umbrella when he walks you home.

It’s Hollywood. It’s heaven.
It’s everything perfect above.
When a girl falls in love.

In Which the Blogger Gushes Uncontrollably

15Feb10_007

I fell in love with the Nayra long skirt released by Baistice’s Sissy Pessoa at February’s Collaboir88. Released in a range of colors, it was released with a matching set of sweaters for the modernist fashion of elevating casual elements by mixing them with formal. pieces. There are several reasons I love this skirt in particular. In fact, let me list them.

  1. The pleating allows it to move without texture stretching.
  2. The texture’s details with the pleats highlights, shadows and doubtless make it come alive.
  3. It falls at the natural waist, which I think is the most flattering choice.
  4. It mixes and matches with simplicity as you can see in this s post as I not only use the accompanying sweater that was released by Baiastice, but also with two other tops from a different store.

Speaking of Old Loves

With all my RL crazy going on I thought I saw something about LAQ having released appliers, and then promptly forgot it. LAQ, my mind said – WOW blast from the past! And then life happened and I forgot.

I got around to asking on plurk about it yesterday and they said YES and they are free. Of course I got there today and they were not free.  I am undeterred by that however, as I have a stable of skins from LAQ that I felt certain stood the test of time. So I picked up a set of PHYSIQUE appliers and headed to the studio.  Continue reading
