Hair Fair Long Hair Part One

A few days ago there was a discussion of whether all the iterations of long hair have already been made. In other words, the “there is nothing new under the sun” argument that has been around for millennia. Well, take a look, and see if you think they are all the same.

You know, they say there are only 7 plots – but there are millions of stories.

Short Hair, Part One

I have wandered all of Hair Fair and have been busily sorting my purchases and promotional copies by style. This is a slideshow of some of the short styles. I have more short cuts that I will be showing you soon, along with long styles, braids and ponie, updos and hair with hats or other embellishments. As always, Hair Fair is one of the Wonders of Second Life.

Dearest Gidge…

Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am in a thousand winds that blow,
I am the softly falling snow.
I am the gentle showers of rain,
I am the fields of ripening grain.
I am in the morning hush,
I am in the graceful rush
Of beautiful birds in circling flight,
I am the star shine of the night.
I am in the flowers that bloom,
I am in a quiet room.
I am in the birds that sing,
I am in each lovely thing.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there. I do not die.

My Everyday Physique

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

Games People Play

jun26_001

 

When your television reception varies depending on the cloud cover, you tend not to get addicted to watching any particular program since you never know what channels you will receive at any given time. We lived too far from town for cable and did not have a satellite dish, so we did not watch a lot of television. Instead we played a lot of games, including dominoes. It was not the family favorite; that was whist. We also really liked canasta, cribbage,  and Scrabble® . But Dominoes had its rotation in the games we played during those bitterly cold winter evenings. I have a game ready in my living room anytime you want to play.

jun26_003My outfit is playful today, a flirty little top with a print of license plants from Osito that I bought at Fashion For Life last week and a bi-color leather skirt from NYU for Fameshed this month. This skirt comes in all sorts of colors and I was hard-ressed to choose one.

Hats of Whimsy and Citrus

I had a tremendous giggle over these hats from Xen’s Hats. Textured with various fruits, they’re silly and fun.

Sometimes I just love something that was made for fun. You don’t need for it to be super meaningful or high fashion. It’s just damn fun.

When I was a noob, I bought purple hair at CAKE. My friends I came to SL with asked “Why is your hair purple?”  My only response was, “Because it can be.”

That is sort of the same for these hats from Xen’s. THEY CAN BE HATS OF FRUIT – therefore they are. They are also 100% donation from Fashion for Life event so you still have time to pick them up, for no other reason than they are a fun item and a great cause.

Why I Always Attend Fashion for Life

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 New Release From Donna Flora – For Fashion For Life

If it had not been for Squinternet’s dear friend Monica Outlander offering up some of her Fashion for Life space to sell Donna Flora jewelry, it might never have been discovered that Squinternet had been working on new jewel options for her Julia set. With just a little help, as Cajsa mentioned, they were finished and are being released at Fashion for Life at a 100% Donation, as Squint would have wanted. Continue reading

Ticket to Ride

0602_002

“I think I’m going to be sad. I think it’s today, yeah. That girl that’s driving me mad is going away. She’s got a ticket to ride and she don’t care.” I thought of this classic song from The Beatles when I was shooting this outfit. My mental soundtrack wavered between it and Leaving On a Jet Plane, but really, the shirt made all the difference in settling the duel between the songs. Continue reading

Getting My Necessary Shopping Done

Arcade opens on the 1st and that means I have to make sure my affairs are in order. Rent is paid. Groceries purchased. I put on my sensible walking shoes and set out to stock up on the supplies that a pixel girl needs to make her world go round. This way I am ready to stock up on the supplies that a pixel girl WANTS to make her world go round.
