It looks like a movie; it sounds like a song

Dance is a way to find yourself and lose yourself
Pixicat has a wonderful ballerina skirt and bodysuit at The Arcade along with several darling ballerina globes to decorate your space. I was inspired to make a short video using the Resplendent Rose Ballet Barre that I purchased a few years ago. However, I have gone to the store and to the marketplace and cannot find it for sale any longer. If folks have recommendations, I would love to hear them.

I will do a separate post about the studio furniture and decor. I wanted to focus on this lovely ballet outfit from Pixicat. When you watch the video you will see how flawlessly it fits.

Made of Star Stuff

“The cosmos is within us. We are made of star-stuff. We are a way for the universe to know itself.”

“The cosmos is within us. We are made of star-stuff. We are a way for the universe to know itself.”

–Carl Sagan

We are so hard on ourselves. It seems a day does not pass that some friend or acquaintance says something harsh and critical of themselves. I do it myself. But really, with all our struggles and our challenges, why do we add to our burdens by turning on ourselves? After all, we are made of star-stuff and should shine as brightly as the stars we come from.

Black Friday

I don’t believe in Black Friday. I can’t imagine withholding my need to buy whatever I want for one day a year. I believe firmly in wanton consumerism 365 days a year. I want everything.  So I am an anomaly and don’t shop madly on Black Friday.  Continue reading

What’s Wrong With Being Confident?

I’m pretty excited as we’re heading right into the holiday season full steam ahead.  In the US we have Thanksgiving tomorrow which is in fact THE FIRST DAY OF CHRISTMAS no matter what the scrooges say. It’s that most wonderful time of the year of good cheer and family and friends and WONDERFUL THINGS ABOUND.

I like it, can you tell? Continue reading

Pajamarama

New pajamas from Sn@tch and a cute bed loaded with poses for you or friends are just some of the fun items available at MY ATTIC this round.  The bed is called the SLEEPOVER bed and so if you’ve got a couple of girlfriends over, it’s perfect for some fun pictures. I also love that it’s got several textures available – you can mix up your decor options. Continue reading

No, you don’t have to do that.

Poetry should appear almost a remembrance

Helen Mirren gave an interview earlier this month that shocked some and made me happy. She said that she wished she had told more people to “fuck off” and it is not the first time. She once said if she had a daughter, that would be one of the first phrases she would want to teach her. As Mirren explained, “Unfortunately, at least for my generation, growing up (we didn’t say that) and I love the fact that girls are so much more confident and outspoken than my generation were. We were sort of brought up to be polite and sometimes politeness, in certain circumstances, is not what’s required, you’ve got to have the courage to stand up for yourself occasionally when it’s needed.”

I think a lot of us need to say those words more often. We often do things we do not want to do out of social expectations and traditions that really require a good fuck off. Of course, sometimes there are obligations and job requirements that just don’t allow us to say that, but then we have Second Life® and if there is any place on the planet where we should be free to do as we please, it should be Second Life.

That’s why I never feel bad about wearing clothes as I please and not just as they come in the folder. Of course, I don’t feel that is really saying “fuck off” to the designer, instead it is just showing that they clothing is more versatile that first envisioned. Of course, in this case, I think  wearing this dress differently than pictured in the vendor ad is intentional, otherwise, why would the designer make it so versatile.

Escapism

“Fashion should be a form of escapism, and not a form of imprisonment.”
Alexander McQueen said “Fashion should be a form of escapism, and not a form of punishment.” I agree, we should wear what makes us happy and only follow those trends that appeal to us. After all, style is more important than fashion and style is about our choices. There are always wonderful choices in Second Life®.

I have also finally figured out how to make Marketplace work again and uploaded the projector I used to shoot these pictures.
