Happy almost birthday, Teagan (it's Friday)! I'm wearing one of her birthday hairs, the Cuppi. I wasn't sure why it was called Cuppi until I donned the hair and looked. The buns are two cute cupcakes! I'm also wearing a fluffy dress from DP**yumyum, a color variation on the pink-arse one in the group camp chair. I love the fluffiness of it, and think it suits the colors of my Callie Cline "kick shickers." I have a weakness for cowboy boots, and today I'm wearing them out of appreciation to Callie for her nice idea!
Hethr Engle (Website here!) introduced me to blogging and taught me how. She's the most creative person in Second Life when it comes to mixing layers and putting together all-new outfits from many different designers. She also has adorable compositions and backgrounds, and my first-ever fashion post was to Closet Crisis. Thank you for everything, miss Hethr! I'm always learning from you.
Cajsa and Gidge:
Today I'm grateful for a few elegant ladies of style who do an amazing job of blogging Second Life clothing. First, Cajsa Lilliehook. (Website here!) What do I love about her blog? She always writes crisply and elegantly, describing both the clothing and the adventures she went through to find them. I can't be appreciative of Cajsa without appreciating Gidge too, who also posts at the above site. Both of them take photos with amazing lighting, showing every part of an outfit in a fluid way. Thanks to you two for setting a high standard!
More appreciation goes to Ana Lutetia (Website here!) for being not just the most amazing new release blogger out there (with impeccable styling and photography), but for being GEEKY about it as well -- and by this I mean that she shares her process, both the glitches and the successes and the workarounds, generously sharing her experiences and expertise as she negotiates our gaming platform.
Even more appreciation goes to Gogolita (Website here!). She's lovely at what she does, which is running a sim, as well as the excellent iheartsl website, a perfect way for new and growing bloggers to find their way onto the Fashion Planet feed. This service, as well as her beautifully lit skin reviews, make her a blogger worth following.
People whose legs I'd like to hump:
And more appreciation goes to the fracking awesome blogging team at Strange Pixels, but then again they know I love them. Why? Innovative outfits and settings, beautiful styling, perfectly dark senses of humor. Can I hump your legs? I'm going to stick my Broke and Notorius woman Terry Toland into the cadre of leg-humpees. I also shamelessly thieve her style. Thank you. More drooling and leg-humping goes to SLaundry's Elusyve Jewell, arguably the most beautiful blogger in Second Life (okay, I can't choose between Elusyve and Strawberry). Damn. I'm adding Phire and Sakuradawn at Malicious Style to the must-hump list, because of their cuteness, attention to detail, beautiful photography, and range of eclectic style. Finishing off this list (for the moment) is Brandy Rasmuson, who is humpable because she's super-gorgeous with adorable taste in clothing that ranges from elegant to cute. Now I'm tired from all that leg-humping...
MORE APPRECIATION to Lawless McBride (of Half Arsed) for commenting on my blog before I knew he was a nice guy with awesome taste instead of a weird stalker (just kidding of course). His only flaw is that he doesn't post enough for his fangirls. Get your ass out of that silly RL and come feed our need, Lawless. =) (Just kidding, I sincerely hope that RL is going well for you right about now.) And speaking of boys, appreciation to the warmest vampire on earth for organizing all kinds of fun stuff for Rezzables as well as relief funds... He's unstoppable when he's got his mind set on something, and I admire that even more than the pretty vampire in pretty outfits.
And I'll end this installment of appreciation with Allegory Malaprop's TWO BLOGS. I loooooooooooooved reading her travelogue posts about Starlust and environs, and hope she's not done with that project yet, because it's addictive to get the inner scoop on how sims are formed. These are in her personal blog in which she muses about Second Life. She's also got a store blog in which she posts pretty fashion. True to form, the woman doesn't know how to make just one of anything.
Keep on being awesome, bloggers, and thank you for being so nice to me yesterday while I was working through my thoughts, everyone -- and I'm sure I'll post this and immediately facepalm because I forgot someone.
