Intergalactic …Planetary…Planetary…Intergalatic

I have to commend COLLABOR88. They resisted the temptation and didn’t drive the grid mad with pink hearts even though February is traditionally pink heart overload in SL. I love the pink hearts, don’t get me wrong. But when even I begin to find it tiresome, you know it’s being over done for sure.

I love the hair pin that is the solar system, from UFO. They have some of the cutest packaging on the grid.

I am also trying out three new things today.

1. Mia Snow released a new skin – for 1L as an intro to a new skin line. It’s very pretty. And hey 1L.  Mia was super sweet and has named her skin with the brand MIA14  to help you keep your inventory straight – I think that’s great. Very thoughtful!

2. It didn’t come with eyebrows – or not discernible ones. My friend Lourdes directed me to Soiree on MP and I demo’d all of their tattoo layer brows before settling on Viviane. I have to say I liked them ALL but they weren’t quite GIDGE.

3. I am also finally dorking around with the MonCheri mesh eyelashes Cajsa got me. They’re pretty cool. I fit these to work with style 2 – I thought 1 and 3 were more dramatic and overwrought than I was looking for.  You can choose from various colors, tipped lashes etc for a lot of variety plus one that’s tintable.  You can select upper only, bottom only or both.Nifty.

LaRoo released an adorabe set of heels for us girls who need to make sure we’re always ready to stab your eye out with our shoes.  As always they come in a myriad of colors with tons and tons of pedicures for your cute little toes!

There wasn’t a color match avail for this MIASNOW skin however, I dorked around and got it matched really easily on my own. YAY ME!

Happy Saturday everyone!

I spent at least an hour flipping through marketplace looking for a Halloween costume. It just seemed, I don’t know, too easy to buy a mesh avatar and call it my Halloween costume. I’m not sure why. I will probably end up buying one, because I can never settle on ONE costume.  But this morning I thought WHY NOT MAKE ONE! Continue reading

My Colors are Blush And Bashful

I have moved to the sea, a nice change of pace from the government housing I where I was staying. But it seems that I’m doing too good of a job decorating, because every time I log in, there are people in my house. They seem to like it too.

I decided that perhaps if I showed up as a zombie with horns, the word would get out and I’d have less unexpected visitors. Continue reading

Had To Have It Stuffs

posted by Gidge Uriza

I am enough of a princess to love the girly skirts my Uriza cousin Ghanima creates on a regular basis. But today I’m excited to show you a couple of other things that are new to me & are exceedingly festive!

My friend Hybie has a little hair shop called TENDRILS and she has made hairs! I chose the most white/platinum shades for fun and only picked up a couple, but I really liked the selection at her little show. Boutique hair FTW! Continue reading

Chocolate Covered Secrets

Life is sweet at Cafe Gourmand.

Gidge and I were hanging out at Crimson Rezzable the other night. We had popped over to check out the Lucky Chair and noticed there was a flag hunt going on – continues through Sunday – and then just chatting while waiting for things to rez. All of a sudden I spied with my little eye this dress from lurvebite that had me squeeing with glee. It looks like Chocolate Covered Cherries. I nearly danced the dress please me so. Clearly I had to get it. Then I thought it would be fun to shoot it with some of the luscious pastries from Cafe Gourmand, our friend Cezare Blanco’s new store. I  tp’ed him over to the blogging headquarters to rez me some pastries.  He arranged them artfully and even included the magnificent cake he made for for Polaire and his wedding. After shooting this snap I had to log off to eat. Continue reading

Art & Fashion

Lady Thera’s Art & Fashion is the store for art lovers who also love fashion. She doesn’t just plop a picture on a t-shirt but rather samples the original art in order to create patterns with which she creates new and original work. Her sampling is so well done, you might call her LT Cool, but you had probably better not. This dress is based on William Turner’s work. Turner was the master of painting sea and sky which you can sense from this dress. There’s a marvelous online collection at the Tate Online.

This picture, by the way, was shot at MDR Photo Park – on the black field, a huge flat black plane. I then just rezzed some surreal flowers from MiaSnow including an artichoke tree. Because I am not landscaping, I can stack flowers on top of flowers, making a sort of box of flowers and get a full background with any gaps filled in by the black field. It’s a fun, fast and easy way to make an impressionistic background like this.

With her head tucked underneath her arm

Okay, I confess this costume is right at the edge for me. It’s the beautifully made Horror Gore dress by Haunted Zuzu. It’s well named. The dress is viscerally quite horrifyingly bloody. Add the little effect from Little Heaven and the gruesomely lovely skin from MiaSnow and I am thinking I may have quite firmly stepped over the edge.

More Ghost Hunting

Ooh, I am a terrible ghost hunter. I get stuck and hunt and hunt and hunt and cannot see what is in front of my nose. And I have a special “I’ll get you my pretty” for a few who shall remain nameless so as not to give too broad a hint. My the time I found the ghost with the run-around-and-hide-from-me script I was searching for a bang-my-head-against-the-wall gesture. By the time I found the tinted ghost, I was getting a little green around the gills myself. I imagine these folks tiptoeing around their stores giggling and cackling with glee as they placed the ghosts. Continue reading

See what the boys in the backroom will have

This sizzling latex set from Moxie Polano made me think of 1930s Berlin cabarets and Marlene Dietrich.

See what the boys in the backroom will have
And tell them I’m having the same
Go see what the boys in the backroom will have
And give them the poison they name

The Three Graces

Last night was a bit of an adventure. I had just found a SqueeCute Halloween costume for 1 Linden at Kuri Style. I was getting ready to shoot it but thought I needed more flamboyant shoes. I recalled these absolutely outrageous-in-a-good way shoes I had seen earlier on an equally outrageous-in-a-bad way woman, Shoes I complimented her on only to get hit over the head with a barrage of rudeness. Oh well, let’s not go there.

Instead, let’s go to Xcentricity where I encountered Newdoll Nikolaidis and Allesist Klaar, two adventurers who are also on the Outrageous Shoes Quest, a lifelong, neverending quest that gives life meaning. We clicked our heels and headed back to the studio to shoot a photo of the 3 of us, all in our new dragonfly shoes – a Halloween gift from XCentricity. Yes, we had just met, but questers on the Way of the Outrageous Shoe have a bond. Newdoll also shot a photo as well and I love what she did with it. Check it out here. And yes, you can like it better than my photos. I like it better than my photos.
