No Really I’m Fine

Good morning girls. I thought I’d stop for a moment to make sure you know that Poppy has released one of my favorite creatures for the REWIND event – a lovely slip with garters. You need it.

I’m getting ready to head out for my day to do all the things, but I wanted you remind you to put REWIND on your shopping list.

Now, I’m off. Have a beautiful day girls.

Garbaggio For The Win

I spent about 20 minutes editing photos after shooting in my home studio, only to realize when I was done that I had uploaded the originals to FLICKR. In a moment of frustration I decided to make lemonade and declare this intentional and show off how lovely raw photos can be. WELL THEY CAN BE. Continue reading

Eponymous Me & Cockfosters

“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.”

So, I was considering what to wear on this subway. I really didn’t want anything ridiculous revealing. Something I would hope not be accosted in is what I was thinking. I remembered this gorgeous dress Cecelia Petion had posted on Plurk, so I unpacked the Poppy blogger box for June and saw the box inside had a dress named Cajsa. OMG! What could this be? Then when I unpacked it, it was the dress I remembered from Plurk…I just about did handstands. I would have if I had an animation handy. This struck me as the apotheosis of Second Life serendipity. They way things just fall into place.

In the Out of Doors

Some might wonder in the magical land of Second Life why I choose to “be normal”. I suppose it’s a valid question. Perhaps it’s because this is, as Prok so rightly called it (although regarding someone else) – a room of one’s own.

In life my typist isn’t afforded the luxury of just simply having everything just so, as she’d like and thus in this space, she gives me whatever she fancies, even if just for a while. Thus, unicorns. Tomorrow – who knows? Continue reading

The Heavenly Spheres make music for us,

The Heavenly Spheres make music for us,

The Poetry of the Spheres are on display at LEA4 – a celebration of music and poetry in a pastoral setting with lovely ancient ruins. From the description of the sim:

Legend has it that the Ancient Gods of the Greeks have abandoned this realm, but evidence of their existence can be found above, in celestial spheres. These signs and symbols, both direct and abstract, are also reflected in Gustav Holst’s 1918 orchestral suite, The Planets, Op 32.

You can explore each of the seven movements, representing the corresponding planets, by teleporting from the Olympus Island up to that particular sphere:

Mars, the Bringer of War
Venus, the Bringer of Peace
Mercury, the Winged Messenger
Jupiter, the Bringer of Jollity
Saturn, the Bringer of Old Age
Uranus, the Magician
Neptune, the Mystic

There you will find a music link station for the appropriate movement – click on it to open a link to the music so you can play it on your browser while you explore. Most of the symphonic movements are less than 10 minutes long, and the symphony in entire is less than 45 minutes long.

Remembrance of Poses Past

Missing Posemakers of Days PastI saw a great fashion spread featuring Dominique Tipper in 1843 Magazine a friend brought over because we share a love of The Expanse. All the pictures were composites of the same clothing in different poses, though very different from this one. They all had black backgrounds and vibrantly colored prints. Still, it did inspire me to shoot some pics for a couple composites. Back when my SL inventory was hyper-organized, I filled a couple pose stands by type of pose rather than by pose-maker. Sit and lie poses all organized together. I decided to drag them out and realize that most of the pose-makers in the stands have closed up shop for one reason or another. Among those of us who have blogged for a few years (nine years for It’s Only Fashion), who does not miss the excellent and puntastic poses from Long Awkward Pose or the flash of recognition when seeing a celebrity-inspired iconic pose from Striking Poses?

Missing Pacemakers of Days PastWhile remembering the old, I will also celebrate the new. These Twiggy pants are from Poppy, the new fashion collaboration that opened this month. My shoes are from Juju, new to me and can be found at Shoetopia. The come in a fancy, print version as well.

The hair is from equally new-to-me RunAway and at Hairology. My shirt is from Tres Blah, at Collabor88 and the top underneath is an applier from Luxuria–the texturing half of Poppy. The skin is alaskametro’s Chi released at Skin Fair which just closed up shop, meaning you can find it in the store or marketplace.
