Tales from the Wandering Camp

VINTAGE FAIR is happening and I’m lounging in a new release from FISSION, who is still a mainstay of classic couture in my wardrobe. There aren’t a lot of retro fashion designers of consistent quality, Ingenue and Fission area always at the top of my list. Continue reading

Let Me In!

Trimming the Sails

The Arcade is opening at midnight and when that happens, many of you will feel like these adorable critters from Mutresse and Half-Deer. The Mutresse kitty cat is even scripted to furiously scratch at the door, “Let me in! Let me in!”

Meanwhile, Collabor88 is in its last week, so you can leisurely stroll in and pick up the pretties like this gorgeous dress from Zenith. Zenith also released coordinated purses, but who wears a purse lounging on a day bed. This one is from Mudhoney and is at The Arcade. The dress has a hud to change the shirt and bra that you can see under the dress. I added a bandana from katat0nik because it’s adorable.

Trimming the Sails

Speaking of adorable. The Pure Poison shoes are at Collabor88 and can be customized to the nth degree. The chihuahua is from The Arcade (Half-Deer) and is named Toodles. My brother always had a Chihuahua and every one was named Toodles, Toodles 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. I have no idea why.

Trimming the Sails

My budget was very small this month so I feel very lucky to get this lovely travel caravan from Dust Bunny on the third or fourth pull. I don’t remember exactly, but I felt very lucky. The lace awning makes a great place for a bit of outdoor living with a daybed and dining table.

Flutter & Flow

A book, a bottle of wine, a sunny day

It’s a beautiful sunny day in Gidgewood, so I popped across the river to Gidge’s back forty and settled under Trompe Loeil’s marvelous outdoor hangout with some deer and rabbits as one does. I brought along some wine and grapefruit which don’ go together if you eat them at the same time, but are fine for eating and then drinking. My lovely dress is from Stories & Co by Flowey for Collabor88. I interviewed the designer Flutter Memel for this month’s issue of VSN. You can read the article here.

The Last Time I Travelled

I thought missing you would break me. I had no idea of standing on these streets without you. Yet there I was. Solitary, intentionally so. Nothing ended up how it should have, nothing ended up right. But I had to make a choice to keep going and so I did. Continue reading

#FlatLarry and Me

#FlatLarry @ The Drunk Tank
I am behind the times this week. I was catching up on last week’s The Nightly Show tonight and cracked up at this member of the audience who made off with a giant flat Larry, taking it home nonchalantly on the subway. He asked the thief to take #FlatLarry around and share on Twitter. Well, I didn’t steal the original #FlatLarry, but I found one on the web and set him out in front of The Drunk Tank, one of the amazing builds in DRD’s Steel Town – and entire city in a gacha.
#FlatLarry @ The Drunk Tank
If I had known I was going to be hanging out with #FlatLarry, I might have dressed a bit more professionally, but somehow I think he might just like this Karma dress from PixiCat. With the texture hud, it can also switch to a smooth, shiny leather.

And Now, I Can Relax

My typist told me she spent yesterday spoiling herself with a mini-spa day and so I told her that I thought I deserved one too. Luckily, she supports my need to be spoiled and pampered ridiculously. But I have to admit, soaking my feet in this amazing tub from Second Spaces is soothing enough that I’m not sure what I felt so tense about in the first place.

I’ve given away all of my gifts, I think, I can’t figure out if I missed anyone. If you’re still dithering, don’t forget that The Arcade is not only open – but all of the items you get there are TRANS. I’ve gone to Arcade many times for gifts, it’s a great spot for picking up items to give away to folks and there’s something for everyone there this round.  Continue reading

At home with the macabre

“We make up horrors to help us cope with the real ones.”

Barnesworth Tabor Cottage, Vespertine upcycled fence town/autumn; 8f8 Storyteller’s Burrow Reader’s Pier, Botanical Aspen Trees, Half-Deer Deadwood Trees, Skye’s Enchanted Woods, 3d Trees Spruce 01, Pixel Mode Fall Harvest Barn

I do not decorate my home for Halloween and only add a bouquet of colored glass bulbs and a gold tabletop Christmas tree for Christmas. My apartment is small and I don’t waste my limited storage space storing decorations. My second life, though, seems to have infinite storage space so I love to decorate there. Also, it’s much less work to pack up and move and also less expensive. Here,then is my home for fall inspired in part by the macabre aesthetic of Tim Burton. I began by tinting my Tabor Cottage from Barnesworth to saturated dark colors instead of the natural stucco that it was originally. There’s a barn in the background with a few animals and a dock on the water.

“We make up horrors to help us cope with the real ones.”

Barnesworth Anubis Tabor Cottage, Verspertine upcycled fence town/autumn, Cheeky Pea Autumn Step Frame Dark, Striped Mocha Swing, Pilot Pumpkin Mice Black, Striped, Orange; Ariskea Terre Automne Branches Vase, PILOT Fall Garden Night

I added this prop fence from Vespertine because I loved the bright colors and though it did not add anything macabre to the home, I liked the colors and the idea of it. Not everything needs to be macabre.   Continue reading
