Start Your Day With Whimsy

So much to do today, I need to pack for a trip for a few days, I need to blog, I need to just do all my SL things but I decided instead that brunch with Whimsy had to come first. We plotted and gossiped the way women do and moaned over how we’d like some eggs benedict in real life now that we’ve been teased with it in SL.  Continue reading

Sun Soaked

Pixel Gidge is exhausted from the sun she’s soaked up all day.  I’ve been struggling with a bikini top that worked for me, they were all just “off” no matter what body I was wearing, but this one I dug up from Luxe Paris – great for a big rack :)  . Unless you have a freakishly big rack, then I can’t help you.

I’ve got a new dresser to find space for, I’m struggling with the idea that it might actually be time to move house – but how can I leave when my view is SO AMAZING? No I might just have to reorganize inside, this house is designed for viewing amazing scenery which I have. Yes, that’s my plan. Reorganize.

But first you’re going to have to excuse me, I’ve got shower off. I’m dying of sweat.

When You Sober Up – HAIR FAIR IS STILL ROLLING

In my youth I was notorious for ONE MORE when I got home. Just ONE MORE. You hate for the fun to end, just one more drink, something fun before you let sleep take over. It’s a time waster, filling your hours until reality returns. But it provides relief from whatever you’re avoiding anyway – at least sometimes it does.

Two things to share on this Thursday. I just realized that this dress I blogged the other day actually comes in sizes FITTED to the Belleza body – I’m wearing my Isis body and the version of the dresses FOR that body. HOT DAMN. That’s brilliant. Continue reading

It’s Only Fashion: What’s the craziest thing you ever did in Second Life? Most exciting? Silliest? Is there a story you can share that captures your Second Life experience? 

Leyla Flux: Actually, I don’t think I ever did something really crazy in SL. I came here in 2009 for the premiere of my Machinima movie “Saving Grace” at the Machiniplex theatre, which was run by Sol Bartz, better known as Phil Overman Rice in the machinima world. My film was not a Second Life movie but made using the program Moviestorm and footage taken in the game X³ Terran Conflict, and I was asked to do an interview with Overman and the interested viewers at the venue. That was in February 2009. So I stood in front of the audience, knowing next to nothing about SL, in my noobie avatar. It was fun, and frightening at the same time!

Later that year, my film was shown at the Machinima Expo, by then I was already infected with the SL bug and looked much more stylish than in February. If you’re interested, you can watch “Saving Grace” on Vimeo, I’m still very proud of it and sometimes sad about moving away from making machinima, but it just happened. And yes, that time might have been the craziest I had in SL!

IOF: What drew you to designing hair? When did you start? What are some of the changes that were most significant for you?

LF: Once I found my feet in SL (with the help of Riott Viking and Lainy Voom, both machinimators and creators), I knew I wanted to make things. I started out with system layer clothes, built prim houses. Riott (she did skins) and I had a shop together, and it was going nicely. Then mesh came, everything changed, and I realised that if I wanted to create still, I needed to learn mesh. I admit I was pretty daunted by the idea (I never learned making my own sculpties), so Riott and I decided to give up our store. For a time, my blog was my only creative outlet, then I started to itch for doing something creative again and learned making poses, and finally dabbled in blender. I did tons of Youtube tutorials (thank you, Youtube!) and as I’ve always loved hair, I pretty soon was sure that I wanted to make hair. Cyclic Gearz helped me a lot – if you need blender lessons, she’s great! And around April 2014, I released my first hair.

IOF: How did you choose your store name? Does it have a special meaning for you?

LF: I’ve always loved the word “Kokolores”. To me, it’s nonsense in a positve sense, fun, light, entertaining, creative, colourful.

IOF: What is the most challenging part of being a creator in Second Life? What is most rewarding? 

LF: I strive to get better with everything I do, and I’m a perfectionist. Sometimes the real challenge is to let something go! And a big challenge also is that you’re not only a creator, but your own marketing force, too. So much depends on how you market your stuff. A picture can make or break an item. Packaging, making colour huds, doing marketplace all takes up so much time, time I’d rather spend making more hair!

Bright, Bright Sun-Shiny Day

150702_005

 

The rain has been gone for several weeks now. It did not even rain for the Grand Floral Parade during the annual Rose Festival, which is, I think, a violation of the Oregon Constitution. I guess we are going to get all of our 68 sunny and 74 partly sunny days in one fell swoop.

I have been feeling lethargic with the uncommon and unprecedented heat wave flattening us here in Oregon, but despite the heat, I did make it to The World’s Largest Louie Louie Sing-a-Long last week.

Belleza’s Goddesses

Belleza has released three new bodies and I’m about to show them to you. I’m going to be naked for a while, so try not to lose your damn mind. But I know that being naked is as important to some of you as drawing air so I felt like it was important to really show off the new bodies in their full curvy glory. Are you ready? Here we go.

Oh Good Morning Girls

Good Morning girls. I’ve decided not to do Monday today after all. There’s too much shopping to do, my house is a wreck with clothes strewn everywhere and honestly, I should organize my make up I think. Instead I’ve made blender drinks and hit the ocean.  I cannot possibly be expected to adult today. It’s out of the question.

I bought a new rafts for chilling in the water from What Next (new to me) and that’s my plan for today.

I love blue drinks, did you know that? I’m OBSESSED with them. I have a whole Pinterest board dedicated to blue drinks. You can go see it if you look me up, I’m Gidgery on Pinterest. But if you don’t that’s cool too. Again, today I’m getting baked in the sun and just waiting for the burn. I’ll take the burn. I welcome it. Continue reading

Because To Me It Should Be Fun And Joyous

Ignore that weird red thing in my pictures. What the hell is that? I don’t actually know and honestly – it’s irrelevant to what I’m on about today. I’m not fixing it, because there are three other things in this pic I’d change if I could and I’m also not gonna edit them.  Maybe it’s a ghost. An SL ghost. Yeah, that’s it. OK – back to what i AM on about.

So I’m sitting on three extra Tres Jolie Makeup bags. I’ve been wondering what I should do with them. I’m a big old school about Gacha. I love it. I remember the glee of running up and down the row at Albero pulling and just being giddy about whatever you got. I remember grabbing a bunch of random stuff and making blog posts. It was fun. It was joyous.

I feel that same glee with the Arcade. I LOVE pulling to complete sets, scouring yard sales for things I really want. The joy of the hunt SUCKS me in. I probably dropped more at Arcade this time than ever and NO REGRETS. It’s really one of my favorite things.

But I always get, I dunno, a bit of a twinge when I see rares out for sale insanely over priced. I mean, I guess sure if you can get it. But it doesn’t feel right to me. So I’ve been thinking since I had these and they’re lovely I wanted to do something with them and I didn’t know what.

Then this morning after being annoyed with someone and their behavior a lovely idea came to me. I’m going to give them away. Continue reading

El Tango De Roxanne

First there is desire
Then… passion!
Then… suspicion!
Jealousy! Anger! Betrayal!
Where love is for the highest bidder,
There can be no trust!
Without trust,
There is no love!
Jealousy.
Yes, jealousy…
Will drive you… mad! Continue reading
