Glitch lovers have a treat at Collabor88. MishMash has paid homage to that wonderful, whimsical world with some lamps based on the worlds of Glitch. Anya Ohmai also pumped up the cute factor with AstroPork, an adorable porcine character with a star.
Schadenfreude went full science fiction with this month’s items for Collabor88. It makes me think of The Jetsons! Best of all, like so many items from Schadenfreude it is endlessly customizable. You can change the top, corset, jacket, sleeve and collar as well as the jacket.
Shoetopia will be ending this weekend. When I logged on earlier today it was easy to get in, so if you have been waiting for it to slow down, now is your chance. Certainly one of the can’t miss items at Shoetopia are these amazing shoes from League. I love the rich texture and the beautiful details that are the quintessential League elements. League designs with a verisimilitude I love -the shoes are not too glossy, the metal is not too shiny. There’s little wrinkles around the curves and t-strap that show they have been worn a few times. That buckle embellishment on the back is such a great addition. I love every single thing about these shoes.
So on Monday I did a set at The Velvet in celebration of the 50th Anniversary Doctor Who special. For fellow Whovians, it was a delight, full of the kind of wit, warmth and good fun we expect from the series – all with the fate of the world in balance. I thought I would share since there is a fair amount of SL – Whovian overlap.
Meanwhile, I am still madly in love with the apothecary cabinet from Schadenfreuda for November’s Collabor88. I may pose with it forever.
Gidge loves to show off her house and I love her posts showing her pixel life. I thought I might give you just a little peek into my house, too. I just redecorated a bit with some of the new items from this month’s Collabor88, including a magnificent chest and mannequin from Apple Fall, that Eiffel Marquee from floorplan. that I am obsessed with and a new bed from Pilot.
I finally made it to the Wizarding Faire this morning. I wanted two very specific things at the event, as I’m not a wand using/Harry Potter reading/cape wearer sort, I had planned a really limited amount of time to get in and get out.
Props to the builders, when you land you can touch a picture to get a map that details exactly where each creator’s items are. It’s built as an alley of shops (Harry Potter? I don’t know) and each creator is located with a small group in each one. It took me a minute to figure out how to get out of the landing zone – you have to touch a wall of rocks when then opens into the alley. There are words that say TOUCH HERE – but my camera wasn’t set high enough to see them initially.
When I got about the first area of shops – I got caught in the familiar lag soup. And this is where I also want to send out a HUGE set of props to the builders and even organizers- because I mentioned on plurk that I was having trouble and boom hello folks were there to see what was going on.
Being concerned about people’s shopping experience is amazing and really appreciated. Continue reading
It’s not often that you will see me void of colour, let alone in white.
I don’t normally like to post things so close to closing time, but I really enjoyed my outfit today, so alas, I am going to share it anyway.
Collabor88 closes it’s doors at 11:59pm slt tonight, so you only have a little time left to go shopping. The new round starts on Sunday.
I bought one pair of these shoes originally, then found out you can mix and match through the huds. Sadly at the time I did not find the fatpack, and after buying 5 pairs I’m super tempted to ask to pay the difference and get the fatpack, they really are too much fun to play with.

Gidge sparked discussion the other day when she asked “Whyfor bloggest thou?” The general consensus is that people blog because they like it. That’s my reason for blogging, too. That’s also the obvious answer. Why would people spend hours on an unpaid hobby if they didn’t like it? However, I thought I might dig a little deeper and ask why I like it. Where are the rewards that make it worthwhile and pleasurable.
I’ve spent the past few months making my government housing abode comfortable and in keeping with my need for a cozy and welcoming atmosphere. I like where I’ve landed, at least for a minute or two. I’m always on the lookout though, for that amazing low impact item that I just MUST HAVE. 117 prims is not a lot to work with. Thank the Lindens for Mesh.
So then, let’s come inside.
I did add walls to my Linden home. My bedroom is directly off the entry way. I’ve spent a long time picking up the 1 Land impact items to tweak this room I’m pretty happy with it. Continue reading
There are some things in SL that just strike my fancy. The dress form is one of them. I love dress forms. I love that creators are whimsical enough to create dress forms. This month has seen an abundance of them. Allegory Malaprop of Schadenfreude and Julliette Westerburg of Tres Blah both released dress forms as part of their Arcade Gacha items. Sienia Trevellion of Lark also released a lovely dress form and I pulled an older version that I’m particularly fond of out of my inventory, one by Theosophy’s Trace Osterham.
If you aren’t a 20 something and you hearken back to your youth, you’ll remember that back in the day in the Peanuts cartoons, Snoopy was often working on his book. His book always begins “It was a dark and stormy night…”. What you might not know is that there is an entire, long running fiction contest centered around this premise – beginning terrible fiction with the phrase IT WAS A DARK AND STORMY NIGHT.
I actually once purchased a compendium of the Bulwer -Lytton contest entries and laughed for days reading it. It’s one of the seminal phrases in American faux literature, and when I rezzed Barnesworth Anubis new skybox for Collabor88 – my first thought was OMG IT WAS A DARK AND STORMY NIGHT. Continue reading
