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.

The Allure of Hef

When I was a little girl a friend and I found her uncle’s stash of Playboys. We were mesmerized by them. Both of us had open minded mother’s that hadn’t taught us our bodies were dirty, so beautiful pictures of glamorous women, who also happened to be mostly or completely naked weren’t something shocking. We thought they were glamorous.

Also, if you ever saw 70s Playboy, there were usually strewn with jewelry and what not, furs etc. It wasn’t truly a sexual thing, not directly anyway. There certainly wasn’t any peen. So to us, we thought they were beautiful ladies who also happened to be naked. We’d giggle and drape ourselves over the bed, mimicking the poses they were in.

That’s right about when we got caught, and in massive trouble. At least our clothes were on. Continue reading

Your Mission Should You Choose to Accept It

Your Mission, should you decide to accept it....Your mission, should you choose to accept it, it to infiltrate The Arcade and capture one of the Tentacio synths and bring it back for study. The stasis net will come down at midnight, allowing the most intrepid and lucky to teleport into the complex. There will be many distractions, doing their best to draw you away from your assigned task. Do not waver.Your Mission, should you decide to accept it....

Initial reports from our reconnaissance missions are available disguised as a shopping guide. Do not be fooled by its benign appearance, it is produced at considerable risk by deep cover operatives working within the system.

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.

The Mystic Blue

all the manifold blue and joyous eyes

Out of the darkness, fretted sometimes in its sleeping,
Jets of sparks in fountains of blue come leaping
To sight, revealing a secret, numberless secrets keeping.

Sometimes the darkness trapped within a wheel
Runs into speed like a dream, the blue of the steel
Showing the rocking darkness now a-reel.  

And out of the invisible, streams of bright blue drops
Rain from the showery heavens, and bright blue crops
Surge from the under-dark to their ladder-tops.

And all the manifold blue and joyous eyes,
The rainbow arching over in the skies,  
New sparks of wonder opening in surprise.  

All these pure things come foam and spray of the sea  
Of Darkness abundant, which shaken mysteriously,  
Breaks into dazzle of living, as dolphins that leap from the sea
Of midnight shake it to fire, so the secret of death we see.

…D.H. Lawrence

all the manifold blue and joyous eyes

Who does not love the brisk fresh air of the seaside, the glittering waves that sparkle and catch the sunlight, scattering miniature sun sparks across the landscape. How lovely, then, that Ariskea made a floating bed for us water lovers to cast off and float away, dreaming of happy things in the sunshine and listening to the steady rhythm of the waves. Ariskea also released lotus flowers which technically prefer still fresh water, but Second Life habitats are more forgiving.
