Monday nights I DJ at The Velvet. I thought you might enjoy listening to my set on Spotify. This was my outfit I wore for DJing – a dress that I wore as a top and some pants. I love the shapes and the edgy, fashion forward design.
The dress is from La Penderie de Nicole and has a very modern look with its exaggerated batwing shoulders. It is aptly names My Bat Dress. It comes with a tartan belt and a tweed belt and is a preview of Marcopol Oh’s coming fall collection. Happily the inside of the skirt is lined so the skirt looks good from all angles. I would like to have seen a similar lining of just a few inches on the sleeves and the top as there are angles where the alpha shows.
Cajsa had on a skin the other day that took my breath away, and with over 5 years at this blogging hobby, that’s not an easy task. It was pretty understandable, when I found out that it was created by none other than Marcopol Oh, the amazing photographer whose keen eye for beauty has astounded folks on FLICKR for some time.
The skin has so many options for customization it boggles the mind. Makeups, beauty marks, lashes, freckles, cleavage, plus the requisite SLINK huds (good job new skinner).
This is default lighting on my platform so you can see the skin in regular light.
I can’t wait to dig into this box and try more options.
Those of you who are always looking for a new look that isn’t “the same”, this one is for you. Cajsa blogged everything and then some previously. As you can see, even between she and I this skin has a very different look.

The shoes you choose are important. Even when you cannot see them, they are important. They tie your outfit together by unifying the different elements or they can add ironic punctuation by introducing a disparate element to your look. They express the mood of your outfit without saying a word. The Pickford heels from Ingenue say a lot. They are classic, restrained and yet have some exquisite details such as the way the strap splits into two and the tiny, neat bow. In most views of my outfit today, you cannot even see them, but I know they are there and that is all that matters.
Today I am wearing a gorgeous formal gown from Liziaah, an amazing designer who migrated to SL from IMVU and who I predict you will hear more of as more and more people become familiar with her designs. This is a lush formal gown with minimal fuss in the structure and maximal attention to details in the print – a gorgeous of flowers and lace that would have made Marie Antoinette giddy with delight.
Marcopol Oh is probably best known for his stunning photography but over the past year, he has been quietly building a reputation as a clothing designer, producing modern, minimalist designs for his label La Penderie de Nicole. He recently jumped into the deep end, producing a line of male skins called Julian. I have been a long time fan of his sense of style and design, so I was thrilled when he recently released a female skin called Julia. The slide show above shows the five skin tones, each of which comes not only different colors of eyebrows, but with different thickness and density to the brows. Incidentally, these photos are all raw Second Life shots. I set the snapshot to 1000 by 1000, so they have not even been cropped. The Julia skin was released for The 24 Event and is only available there for now. It’s a bit tricky because his store is in The 24 Menswear section, but it is right by the landing point.
Seriously, does anyone really think it is pure coincidence that the CIA confirmed the existence of Area 51 when The Garden opened up its Area 51 showcase? Besides, doesn’t the name Liaison Collaborative sounds like a cover organization for a covert mission? Covert operative liaise while the rest of us hang out. I wonder who it is? Please share all your random and reckless speculation.
So, Gidge wanted to run with the Area 51 idea and I worked with her to make a projector box. She made 11 poses. Her pose selection menu is a prose poem, an ode to sci-fi. The projector has three textures. All of these shots are done in the chrome texture, the differences in lighting come from the windlight.
