I do not move houses very often in Second Life® or in real life. It is just too much work. However, when the Brooklyn Carriage House came out at Collabor88 last month, I could not resist its bright red doors and fine brickwork. I finally have everything arranged, but will be moving shortly. I thought I would share before I pack it all up. I love the house and how it looks, but I guess my four year old computer really cannot handle such an open floor plan where everything fezzes all the time. I need rooms and walls that limit the textures my computer has to handle, so I will be on my way to a more traditional space. That is totally a reflection of my computer’s age and is no criticism of the house – which is gorgeous, very, very gorgeous.
My outdoor decor is pretty limited, just a few shrubs and bushes from We’re Closed, a couple trees and the gorgeous deck from Lark that was released at The Liaison Collaborative a few month’s back.
I’m waking up to ash and dust.
I wipe my brow and I sweat my rust.
I’m breathing in the chemicals.

It might seem odd when I say that one of my favourite things is the apocalypse.
I love the books, the music and the whole genre. So when Uber announced that this round had an apocalypse theme I may have squealed, just a little. The designers? Well, they certainly didn’t let me down.
Starting from the top is hair by Truth. It comes with both a smooth and messy style and multiple colours per pack, all changeable by HUD. The gas mask also comes with the hair in black and chrome with optional steam. I love options. Truth hasn’t failed me.
The lingerie comes with options too. It’s from Baiastice at the Uber event and is mesh. The options are net (like the panties) or full (like the bra). Of course, I had to mix and match.
The fit, in my case small, was perfect without even needing an alpha. This is a big plus for me as I always find that I end up adding multiple alphas by accident. Not a huge issue, but an annoyance when changing. The texturing and mesh itself are just as I would expect from such a big name. Definitely going to be one of my favourite sets.
Until next time, I’m going to get down to the armory. This girl needs a gun before the zombies come.

Location: Unknown as I crashed and landed back at home. Apologies.
I jumped into the ocean this morning to see how deep I could go. You can imagine my surprise when no matter how deep I went, the ocean continued to welcome me. I eventually swam down so deep, I met it’s King, who welcomed me with open arms. Continue reading →
I can’t remember the last time I got into an event the day it opened. It’s like Christmas for Bloggers. But after my morning shoot I had a bit of time and so I strolled over to the new event UBER. Continue reading →
FAMESHED has another great round in store for you, and this gorgeous gown from Baiastice is beautiful. I love the washed out watercolor looks of the texture where it pools on the floor. Darkley posted a different color on her blog and styled it differently. You can see it’s amazing whether worn very minimally styled or with accoutrements. My computer is trying to spell accoutrements incorrectly. It’s driving me nuts. It keeps underlining it in red, and then I check it with a dictionary, no I’m right. What cretin set the spell check on this machine?
Everyone else is still snoring in their campers but I’m up early because there is so much going on! Hair Fair still goes until tomorrow and I’ve forgotten to go pick up the dollarbie Kavar from EXILE put out. It’s sort of a silly rainbow hair and I have to have it.
There is still time to pick up this gorgeous ‘do from Wasabi Pills also, in fact Hair Fair several years ago was where I first became acquainted with Wasabi Pills. I fell in love then and have been delighted as time has pass at what an amazing and versatile creator she’s become. Who will you fall in love with at the Hair Fair this year? Continue reading →
I got it into my head to work on my tan lines, so I took my new tapeman from SOY that I picked up at the KUSTOM9 event and headed out in a new to me bikini from BAIASTICE. But I have to confess, I like the idea of laying out in the sun more than actually doing it. So after a short time in said pixel sun, I retreated under my new beach tent from ALOUETTE. I get to enjoy the water and the beautiful day, plus my tunes, and I’m not burning alive. WIN. Continue reading →
This month’s theme for Collabor88 is Safari and Baiastice’s offerings are stylishly on point – taking inspiration from African fabrics and textures and colors but making something new with it. Her skirts and tops are irresistible and should be kept as great mix and match pieces. The top in particular will be a great one for layering as it skims close to the body.
My long night running the gauntlet of Hair Fair, in and out of every shop, buying, making plans to buy later, demoing, trying to look pretty, all of these things created an intense desire to find a mellow spot to relax and take in my spoils.
CHEEKY PEA has created a perfect summer spot for summer repose with the WHITBY set. You can pick it up at the Season’s Story event, and it’s a great spot to relax or hang out with friends. Delicious beverages are also available. Continue reading →
