We Meet Again Sewing Machine…

Yesterday I played. I logged in and Sasy, Whimsy and Mavi were making the rounds of the big shopping events and so instead of settling in for some serious work I went FA LA LA LA LA shopping. I couldn’t help it. SHOPPING WITH THE GIRLS IS MORE FUN.  After we had emptied all the events of all the items worth having (which was all of them from what I could tell) I had to run off and they went on to further adventures.  Continue reading

Parisian Getaway

Helena Stringer - IOF - Parisian Getaway

I tried something a bit different today.

It has become known that It’s only Fashion is not just a site to visit for fashion, stories, tutorials, and other things, but also a place to find Home & Garden items. I have seen many different little setups grace the feeds over the years and I have always wanted to try it myself. I find it hard to be motivated to take that first step, when there has always felt little need for the end result.

I don’t have a home, I never have. Prims have always been allocated to the use of the store. I sometimes will have something silly and unneeded out. My blogging area has all sorts of things around it. A home though, that has always been a fanciful wish that probably will never be. To be inspired to decorate, when you don’t have the need to do it, that just wasn’t coming to me.

I started my push forward by going though all the skyboxes, houses, cottages, buildings, and so on, that I had nestled in a folder. I threw about 100 out, haha no joke. H&G is the one thing in my inventory that you could consider an utter mess, as my venture in those folders happen so infrequently.

A lot of the items had rez scripts that no longer worked, as LL likes to update certain things from time to time. One house made me really sad, loved it, but it was no mod, and the rezzer totally borked it.

I think for a first real try, I did okay with this room. I am happy with it. I can imagine some cute little avatar sitting there, reading a book, playing with the cat, musing about her day.

A Touch of Cute

So what happens when you mix up a demon and a lolita styled goth dress?

Helena Stringer - IOF - A Touch of Cute - 1
I wouldn’t call myself a traditionally cute avatar. I am forever in the realm of odd and sometimes scary. When not designing, or blogging, I am most often a demon of some sort. But can a demon be cute? Of course! It is all in the eyes of puppeteer, how we perceive our digital flesh.

I fell in love with this dress from Adoness. It isn’t something I would normally wear, not for lack of liking the style, but I have entrenched my self so far into a set fashion style, that I feel sometimes it limits what I can make work.  Looking on my flickr, you really wouldn’t think this, as I am all over the place, when blogging.

Seraseeya, Watcher of the River of Souls

Helena Stringer - IOF - Seraseeya - 1

Seraseeya was an unusual creature. With a foot in both worlds, she was neither human, nor fully a beast. Her mother was a harpy who had the unfortunate accident of picking a human male as a mate. We wont go into details, but the result was Seraseeya, and her 3 other sisters.

Things were not too bad to start. The Harpy Broodmothers could tell there was something a bit different about them, they had funny feet and they lacked claws on their hands. There was not a feather on their head, nor much hair to speak of.  They let them be, thinking they would grow into their features.

As the years passed, it became apparent that there was indeed something wrong, they looked more human, than harpy. This would not do.

More story and credits below the cut.

Casual Friday: So Casual I’m Tardy

Gabby and I went FLF shopping and I had to stop off at Vespertine because I wanted the wall art for my house. I happened to stumble into her gacha room with all of her old ARCADE round items – and OMG I WANTED THIS CAR. I gave it a few pulls, got some cute pieces from this set (I already had several) but alas. NO CAR. Continue reading
