I Used To Rule The World…..

posted by Gidge Uriza

…..seas would RISE when I gave the word……

I know, lotsa fashionistas have blogged this dress. But it’s totally festive and I wanted to wear it too. I just had this whole pirate thing going on the second I saw it. So I went exploring and found this nutty build of pirate ships. And a guy apparently role playing a hanged man behind me. (Yeah that’s a person not a part of build). Continue reading

Exile's ZOE – The Gauntlet Has Been Thrown Down

posted by Gidge Uriza

I got an IM from Winter challenging me to style this hair – a new release at EXILE.

I expected a lot more CRAZY out of the style than I got when I TP’d into EXILE. It’s some big hair, with dreads and big ringlets and I liked it immediately because it’s long hair.

And I LOVE long hair. I also love the shades of blonde Kavar uses so that was pretty much a WIN as far as I was concerned. What I HATE is to SHOOT long hair.

I find that I don’t think twice about intersections and other annoying bits of hair here and there when I WEAR long hair, we all know it happens – just like we know that the texture can stretch and distort over ya bootie if you don’t wear a skirtshape with your system skirts. Continue reading

I Have Come Here to Kick @ss and Chew Bubblegum

posted by Gidge Uriza

And I’m all out of bubblegum.


Okay so Belle sent me over to check out the boutique of a friend – EDGE DESIGNS and I was really excited to check out the cute offerings inside. The store itself was interesting and although the collection isn’t huge, there were some fun pieces.

The creator,Mrohs showed up while I was there and dropped this unreleased super cute tough girl outfit (I’m thinking THUNDERDOME!) on me that I had to share.

I wanted to completely kick somone’s ass while wearing this. I originally picked this hair up at Damselfly because I thought it was pretty but then I thought it looks messy and tough girl, so paired it with this outfit. Continue reading

Business as Usual

Wetherby’s is truly one of my new shopping addictions. I know I told you before, she offers shoes with most if not all of her dresses, and the shoes look great – vs. the garbage you sometimes get in “complete outfits”.

Cajsa had remarked when I blogged Sascha Frangilli’s Roxanne a few days ago that the belt was smokin’ hawt – and I agreed, and fangrld that it was on the jacket layer so I could use it with other things.

Layer Options Make a Happy Fashion Blogger

The dress is a really nice retro cut (think 1964) dress but adding the belt gives it a little urban edge that I think is anachronistic and fun.

Yeah, I just said a lot of stuff didn’t I? Continue reading

Yourskin is Delightful

posted by Gidge Uriza

You might think that I like every skin given to me, that like a crack-fiend – I can find no flaw with my drug of choice.

And that is where you would be wrong. You see – I try on a LOT of skins, I receive many as review items and others I go hunting down based on blogs and plurks about what people have released.

Much of the time I slip into the new pixel shell and say OH HELL WHAT IS THIS?

You never see those skins. Because I want to look pretty, and I want YOU to look pretty, therefore it only behooves me to bring you that which pleases me and I hope will please you.

Thus, Yourskin. Continue reading

Posermaker Appreciation: Reel Expression

Achariya suggested last week that we highlight our favorite posemaker. It’s hard to do because there are so many great ones, and that is why I have dawdled. Still, if I have to choose only one, that one must be Luth Brodie of Reel Expression.
