I have been fascinated by the idea of mesh bodies for some time, yet I have to admit, I’ve been somewhat unsure what I would use one for. After all, it’s mesh. How will my clothes go on over it? How will the alphas work? Is this even going to work? I was optimistic when Siddean announced SLINK would have a mesh body, even though I just wasn’t SURE.
You’ve seen it now, the nudity has abounded on blogs. Being nude in the new mesh body wasn’t my concern, I knew we could be nude and be beautiful. I decided to test how it would work as a functional piece of my every day look. Continue reading →
Zzoiee Zee had such fun designs at her store Zanze that I had a hard time choosing one to feature. I eventually chose this one which come with a texture changing hud allowing me to change the fabric to different color versions of this print. I opted for black and white because I love watching projectors interplay with fabric in my pictures. You can see some really cool details such as the bands of fabric. Not just the white band at the hem but the small band of reverse print – white on black instead of black on white – right above the white band. The zipper inset and the small shrug are all great details that make this a far more interesting dress that deserves a second and third look to appreciate its totality. Continue reading →
There I was, sitting in my own house, trapped in the clothes I wore yesterday. Funny story, I cleared my cache. Funnier story, it won’t reload my inventory. Or, wouldn’t earlier. Perhaps SKYNET has changed it’s mind and will give me my things later today? The one thing it WOULD give me, was my SLINK BECKY head, and the HUDS to the skin I already had on!
Have you been to Fashion For Life yet? If not, you only have four more days. There’s more than 150 stores across 10 beautifully designed sims. There’s no lag, so you can enjoy skateboarding in the skate park at FFL Perambulate or strolling on the sand at FFL Meander or enjoying a space bar worthy of Han Solo on FFL Promenade. For these pictures, I visited FFL Journey which explores steampunk stream transit with everything from steam cars to a steam hearse.
My jacket is from FBD Design one of the Champions sponsoring the sims these year. FBD is rebranding to Mooh! so in the future look for it under that name. I love the mix of punk and baroque elements in one jacket. It’s fun, funky and oh-so-fashionable.
I was browsing my inventory this morning, searching for something to wear with my earrings from Bliesen + Maitai for FASHION FOR LIFE and was reminded, due to my lack of inventory maintenance, of how many years I’ve attended Fashion for Life. It’s not something that’s ever been top of mind, like COLLABOR88, Fifty Linden Friday, or The Arcade, where I feel a RUSH and desire to go. More like, it’s something I should go to as a member of our community to support the spirit of charity and helping support American Cancer Society.
I’m lucky, genetically. There is no cancer in my family. It doesn’t mean there won’t ever be, it just means I’m not predisposed. My genes are on file at Columbia, because of different family medical issues, and I know for a fact that I carry none of the KNOWN genetic markers for any type of cancer. Continue reading →
A lot of life’s answers are blowing in the wind, as the Bob Dylan song asserts. But what does that mean? Some people think it means the answers are right in front of our faces – answers we could pluck from the air if we only chose to do so. Myself, I think it means that the answers are unknowable, as imperceptible as the molecules on the wind. Of course, Bob Dylan’s explanation is as ambiguous as the song.
There ain’t too much I can say about this song except that the answer is blowing in the wind. It ain’t in no book or movie or TV show or discussion group. Man, it’s in the wind – and it’s blowing in the wind. Too many of these hip people are telling me where the answer is but oh I won’t believe that. I still say it’s in the wind and just like a restless piece of paper it’s got to come down some …But the only trouble is that no one picks up the answer when it comes down so not too many people get to see and know . . . and then it flies away. I still say that some of the biggest criminals are those that turn their heads away when they see wrong and know it’s wrong. I’m only 21 years old and I know that there’s been too many . . . You people over 21, you’re older and smarter.[*]
Not every hair designer makes colors that are a perfect fit for all of us. Redheads encounter many Japanese designers, for example, who do not make red hair. I really loved this .Shi hair style called Blown when I saw it on Strawberry Singh’s blog . Joy LaPerriere is just beginning to create hair for .Shi, but has made gorgeous and unique styles. Sadly, they were in this monochrome, shades of blue and shades of purple. What’s a redhead to do? Continue reading →
I forgot I had this COZY chair from Fri.day and decided it was just the touch my bedroom needed. It’s a great piece for snuggling and unwinding when you don’t feel like heading out into your pixel life. It comes with three different blanket snuggling animations, as well and some regular sits too.
I saw this adorable wall decor from a brand called FOLLOW US on Marketplace. It’s a little primmy because it’s sculpts but it’s cute. I do wish she’d release in mesh though, because I will end up replacing it pretty soon just due to the prims. However, it’s super inexpensive and great props for photoshoots. Continue reading →
