I started out my early morning shopping and usual blogger work a bit earlier than usual today. I think of blogging both as my SL Hobby and let’s face it, it’s also a bit of a job. Some people role play families, some people role play being a space pirate, some people role play being a cabbage for all I know. I guess that makes my role play in SL being a fashion blogger. I love it, I love styling my pixel self, I love the choices and variety of fashion – I love that high heels NEVER NEVER NEVER hurt my feet. I love being perfect based on what I consider to be ideal. I love that genetics play no part in how pixel Gidge looks. Continue reading
I decided to go out exploring the winter fun to be had in SL today, so I had to take a bit to get properly geared up. Cute but warm is the goal – it’s hard to be cute sometimes, especially in RL, when you’re layered upon layers upon layers. I decided to have some fun with my ability to layer on my SLINK PHYSIQUE starting with a sweater from Stellar on the body, then adding mesh over it for a cute RL layered look. I think it works nicely. Continue reading
I have to admit, I like smart. Smart guys turn me on. Smart girls I want around me, they’re funnier and more interesting. I work at a place in RL where being smart is requisite. We take it for granted.
Geeks and Nerds? They rule my world.
I was so tickled that Isla at Cheeky Pea created a new living room set inspired by The Big Bang Theory – it’s Penny’s Living room! I don’t have the chair out – totally forgot it,but it’s so lovely, I have to admit I was just delighted. I love how gorgeous it is and how many sit options she always includes. Continue reading
One of my favorite groups back “in the day” was Bettina Tizzy’s Not Possible in Real Life (NPiRL). Tizzy gloried in the freedom of Second Life® creation – unshackled from the laws of Euclid and Newton – free to create anything they could imagine. Of course, Second Life has its own laws that result in some things common in real life becoming Not Possible in Second Life. Something quite simple in real life can become very complicated, even impossible, in Second life. One of those things is fringe.
Fringe is one of the fall’s hot fashion trends and promises to be an even hotter item in the spring. However, the physics of SL are not fringe-friendly. Of course, we could have flexi-fringe, but after two years of not having our clothes fall through our bodies, I think that is not the solution we want. We know from reports that flexi-mesh is not even under consideration right now. So I am excited to see Sunami Beck of Emery look for a work around. It’s not perfect, perfect is impossible, but it is a valiant effort that works pretty well overall. This fringe dress is a la page fashion – and it looks great. You can find it at Collabor88 with a bundle of coordinating loose sweaters like the on I am wearing.
Versus Magazine did a lovely tribute to Squinternet Larnia that was released on the 4th, the one-year anniversary of her death. Tania Tebaldi who wrote and managed Squinternet’s blog for her wrote an essay that showed a different perspective on Squinternet than the one I knew. That’s one of the reasons people come together to mourn their loved ones – because we all know people through different lenses and in sharing our grief, we all get a fuller, rounder perception of the person.

I covet things I see released, in fierce ways sometimes. These earrings from Bliensen + Maitai for instance were a must have the moment she plurked them.
The earrings are available at We <3 Roleplay event. The coordinating jewelry is available at…….I forget. Now I have to blog it again so I can say the name. Drat. OH WELL THE HARDSHIPS I ENDURE. #Secondlifebloggerproblems.
Yes, I love these earrings.

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.
