Feeling Nostalgic

dec01_003

This is the fourth annual Peace on Earth hunt. Blogging about the Hunt makes me remember my first year in Second Life and the POE1 was the first gridwide hunt that I had participated in. I remember reading about it beforehand and wondering how they would do a gridwide hunt – did that mean I had to look everywhere? Yup, I was that doofus! It was fresh and exciting and so much fun to hunt with Gidge, running all over the place, cracking wise and having good times. I remember how we would go to lucky chairs to wait and actually talk in chat. We even had lucky chair parties! This made me remember Digit Darkes and how much Gidge and I looked for her every new release, racing to be there to see what was new! She’s left the grid and I have packed up almost everything, but not everything. For this post, I pulled out a couple favorites to mash up with a dress from 1 Hundred for the 4th Annual Peace on Earth Hunt. The dress is adorable, but it’s chilly and I have been battling a head cold and for some very bizarre reason, I want my avatar to be nice, warm and comfy, so I didn’t want to wear a sleeveless mini – no matter how adorable. I decided to take off the skirt and add some pants and a jacket.

Blogger Challenge:Something Old


Achariya has challenged us all to dig into our closets and pull out designs that are no longer available to appreciate them and take that stroll down memory lane of who we used to be.
It was tough for me, because I have three former great loves who are not longer with us. All three just POOFED and were gone one day.
I had a hard time not just wearing all Digit Darkes, but let’s face it, I blogged most if not all of her catalog here over the years so I thought I’d mash it up a bit.
I’m wearing a cropped green sweater and tribal bead jeans from Chic Boutique which was a store I always refused to tell my friends where it was.
I didn’t want them to have cute things like me. HA. Continue reading

A short retrospective of the amazing work of Digit Darkes.

I am not alone is feeling shock, dismay and sadness that Digit Darkes has left SL – at least under that name, closing her store and her sim. I don’t know why and won’t speculate, but will only offer this retrospective of some of the joy and color she has brought to my SL experience.

Expectations 7 – Royal Expectations

Marie Antoinette was a fashionista. She’s not the original fashionista because there’s Du Barry and Pompadour. I am sure if we could only find the style section of The Imperial Times of Rome, we could discover Calpurnia’s favorite stola maker. Fashion is probably as old as human existence since we just know that some cave women draped their skins better than others. Still, Marie Antoinette does have the singular distinction of being someone whose love of fashion not only contributed to her death, but to a revolution. I guess it is possible to take love of fashion too far. Sshhh! Don’t tell Gidge!

Anyway, if Marie were alive today, she would shop at Sn@tch, and she would buy this dress. Good grief, it’s named after her. I shot it at Utopia 04-Markus Inkpen. When I choose a place to shoot an outfit, I generally choose one of two approaches. Either the setting and the clothing are in complete harmony, such as a 20’s style gown in a speakeasy or  they are completely dissonant such as this bright colorful fantastical dress in this somber sim, apposite and opposite you could say.

This Post Lacks Ninjas and Tigers -But Has Makeup #13

posted by Gidge Uriza

All videos in the 80s needed fog, wind, outrageous and bold face makeup (even on the boys), big tall hair that would stand up and NOT sway in the wind (thank you AquaNet) and if you were REALLY putting effort into your production – NINJAS AND TIGERS.

(Point of reference – Total Eclipse of the Heart Video, I promise, You Tube It.) Continue reading

It's An Emerald Day

posted by Gidge Uriza

Today’s theme is GREEN.

As in Emerald. As in the viewer if finally just downloaded. I haven’t played with it yet. I’m stodgy and don’t like change. So we’ll see.

Know what I DO like? JEWELRY!  I have been meaning to check out the offerings dropped on me from GANKED in a while- and frankly, I’ve seen other people wearing them and have been impressed but I’m in the pregnancy sloth and have gotten sooo lazy.

I changed that the other day. The second I got these gorgeous, excessive gems on me, I had to go shopping for something snappy to wear with them. Continue reading
