Rock me Gently

Helena Stringer - IOF - Rock me Gently - 1

I often get comments when I go out, that certain thing I wear seem “out of character”. I’m aware that over the years, I have set a certain persona for my avatar. There are many things that I enjoy in the fashion world, and sometimes these things don’t work with my more dark, supernatural, magical tastes.

That does not mean I choose to stay away from them. I often embrace them, and get a kick out of confusing people, haha.

I do have a love for historical fashion, as well as things considered retro. Genre this round is Rockabilly, mixing the love of the old with something a little bit playful and feisty.

A Blogger’s Work Is Not Begging

I started out my early morning shopping and usual blogger work a bit earlier than usual today. I think of blogging both as my SL Hobby and let’s face it, it’s also a bit of a job. Some people role play families, some people role play being a space pirate, some people role play being a cabbage for all I know. I guess that makes my role play in SL being a fashion blogger.  I love it, I love styling my pixel self, I love the choices and variety of fashion – I love that high heels NEVER NEVER NEVER hurt my feet. I love being perfect based on what I consider to be ideal. I love that genetics play no part in how pixel Gidge looks. Continue reading

Hotlips Houlihan

I was excited when Cajsa told me that LEA has a build that recreates the 4077th. If you don’t know MASH you probably don’t get the reference but it was a seminal movie and TV show of the 70s in America. MASH was everything and Hotlips was always one of my favorite characters.

Selfish, self centered, myopic in her vision and fastidiously stuck on “the rules” Hotlips was also a human, caring person underneath. Watching that character build and grow over the years was an interesting transformation. Continue reading

And THIS Is Why 6 AM Shopping Is A Bad Idea

So this happened. I went to the CHAPTER FOUR because I saw a pic of a cute sweatshirt that FISHY STRAWBERRY had out, and I HAD TO HAVE IT. I’m all SL broke right now bcse QAVIMATOR went to hell but that’s a different story. So ANYWAY – had to have it, I had a cup of coffee barely touched, TP’d right in and went right to the shirts I wanted. YAY I saw the one I wanted, made my purchase and TP’d home, full of joy with my whimsical purchase.

Except I got dressed and it didn’t say what I wanted. I wanted the one that said MORE ISSUES THAN VOGUE. MINE DIDN’T SAY THAT !! I tried both colors. I gave up and shot them as is. And I sent FAE a note, saying OMG MY SHIRT IS WRONG /weeps.

Then I went to plurk and lamented my fate. Because obviously this is a tragedy. Continue reading
