Sexy All Up In My Attic

Lacuna has released some gorgeous new sexy lingerie and it works on ALL THE BODIES. Ok it works on a lot of them. It works on the only ones you actually need. It works on the ones I have plus one I don’t have.

You get the idea.   Continue reading

Hotlips Houlihan

I was excited when Cajsa told me that LEA has a build that recreates the 4077th. If you don’t know MASH you probably don’t get the reference but it was a seminal movie and TV show of the 70s in America. MASH was everything and Hotlips was always one of my favorite characters.

Selfish, self centered, myopic in her vision and fastidiously stuck on “the rules” Hotlips was also a human, caring person underneath. Watching that character build and grow over the years was an interesting transformation. Continue reading

Monday Morning Grind

I had to hit the studio early this morning as it’s going to be a busy next 48 hours. 21Shoe is coming and that can only mean one thing – awesome shoes are coming and I’ve got lots of shots to get done before 1.21. So I loaded up my lunch and other necessities for a day in the office and got in shortly after dawn.   Continue reading

The Folly

Snapshot

When Inex Hax shared her newest release for The Secret Affair on Plurk, I had to comment that it looked like it might just be my favorite of her designs ever. After getting in world and trying it on, it turns out I was right! It’s yummy and comes in white, black red, yellow, pink and blue. I loved each and every one of the colors.

Catching Up

Snapshot

I shot these pics a few days ago wearing an outfit featuring items from last month’s Collabor88. Don’t despair, you can now find them in the store. The top, leggings and boots are all from Tres Blah. They come with a puffy jacket, too, but I left that off. Growing up in a place where it’s really cold, I have never understood those puffy jackets with no sleeves as anything more than an extra lining if your coat is not warm enough.

Yearbook Challenge

Yearbook Smile Saying Cheese does not work

Nonconformist of the Year – The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man. – George Bernard Shaw. .

Second Life® Memestress Strawberry Singh has kicked off 2015 with a fun blogger challenge. She asked folks to shoot a high school yearbook picture with a smile – and explain how we achieved that smile. It was not easy, but I did manage a ghost of a smile.

How I Did It: I used a combination of methods, adjusting my face shape, using tips from Melanie Kidd.  Then I turned on slow animations following Gogo’s tips on slow motion animation and Iris Ophelia’s tips on lip-synching.

Saying Cheese did not work at all!

Yearbook SmileI also tried using emotes on the AnyPose HUD I use to control my eyes in combination with the lip-synching and slow animation. OH well! PhotoShop can help.

The CIIIIIRCLE OF LIIIIIIFE

I always wondered how Yard Art reproduced. I’ve solved it on my wandering, snowy walk today. I caught two deer making little deer. I anticipate seeing these little deer at a shopping event as soon as they’re old enough to be apart from their parents. Continue reading

The Perils of Ponchos

122714_005

 

I don’t know about you, but for me, ponchos have always been problematic. I bought my first poncho in Spain – knit with thick, luxurious wool and closing at the neckline with gorgeous unvarnished wood buttons. It was so warm and cozy and it felt like wearing a blanket, which meant it really needed to be worn on cold days. So here’s the thing. In Minnesota, if it’s cold enough to wear that poncho, it’s too cold to wear that poncho. The wind would blow up underneath and chill me to the bone. An engineering flaw for cold weather. So every time I see ponchos, I think of my few attempts wearing my gorgeous poncho and remember those bone-chilling gusts of wind sneaking in underneath and think – nope, not for me.

What I needed was one more like this poncho from Zenith – to wear indoors kind of like a high fashion snuggle. But it’s Second Life and so even though there’s snow falling and the pond is frozen over, the winds that ruffle my hair are soft zephyrs carrying billowing warmth – not bone-chilling blasts from Polar Vortex.
