Aisuru Reiko


It was the White Rabbit, trotting slowly back again, and looking anxiously about as it went, as if it had lost something; and she heard it muttering to itself `The Duchess! The Duchess! Oh my dear paws! Oh my fur and whiskers! She'll get me executed, as sure as ferrets are ferrets! Where can I have dropped them, I wonder?'

Thanks so much to Fab Shangreloo and Chic Aeon for writing about the Tekeli-li dollarbie in honor of Lovecraft day. It's properly diabolical, and it has so many options for the metal, gem, lens and tentacle colors that I was diverted for quite some time by playing with it... Continuing the color-scripted theme, my new shoes from First Flower have a pretty scripted flower on the toe!

This Tekeli-li store is located on an interesting sim, a vampire steampunk sim -- I assume roleplaying? I like the idea of steampunk vampires, and want to see someone's take on a costume for such a thing. I can see cogwork vats of blood, mechanical wings, great-coats and very complicated spike throwers. Hm. Perhaps I'll begin a vampire hunting occupation in SL. Surely the growing population needs some thinning out. Check out the other very cheap items at this Tekeli-li location, including dollarbie earrings and hair.

I'm wearing it with new hair from Philotic Energy that surely gives me cuteness bonuses to my dice throws, the Odile, and a jacket from Blue Blood that goes nicely with the skirt from Y@ni. My poses are from the new Queen of Emo pose set by Pffiou, meant for wielding dual blades.

Not me: SarahtheRed Aurbierre

SarahtheRed Aurbierre


Sleepy ramble. These photos have been fun, as always! I've gotten to meet people and see where they live... SarahtheRed has a cosy little cove with a dog and a one-woman shack (complete with Communist poster). I kind of loved her small nook of peace and quiet, which I thought reflected her relaxed yet posh style. She's wearing a falling-down updo (Kyoot's hot mess, a great hair) and a fancy shirt over a pair of jeans.

I've also been playing with Photoshop a whole lot. I'm trying to figure out how to make naturalistic photos look all spiffy with blurring the background and playing with light. I'm not fabulous yet, but I'm working on it! For some reason, in black and white, Sarah looks like she's got formidable bewbs!

I've been donning a different 'roving reporter' look every day, and wonder of wonders I kept the same outfit on for a twelve-hour span today. It was kind of nice to build an outfit and keep it on for a change (of course, I've been keeping track of these outfits on Flickr, simply because I'm a photo ho like that. Sarah called me fast, today, in fact, but I hope it's simply because I snap shots quickly...) :D

Her next doll was a fairy
With funny almond eyes.
Her brother thought this doll would like
To sail up in the skies.

He tied her to a small balloon
One fourth day of July.
She never came to earth again;
She's still up in the sky.

Belochka Shostakovich

She left the web, she left the loom,
She made three paces through the room,
She saw the water-lily bloom,
She saw the helmet and the plume,
She look'd down to Camelot.

Out flew the web and floated wide;
The mirror crack'd from side to side;
"The curse is come upon me," cried
The Lady of Shalott.

Y@ni

wolfy01


Two weeks of rain and my child looks a bit like a caged hamster (with the same big, cute, mad eyes). I think I'll set up a hamster wheel and harness her energy to power my laptop.

I'm in a pair of absolutely perfect fluffy bloomers from Sn@tch today. I've been bothering a few of my poor designer pals for bloomers like this, and now they can evade me, because these are just the sort I'd been looking for. Mourna wore them to gorgeous effect over here (along with new Philotic Energy hair), and I couldn't help putting together a contrasting look. I'm also wearing a new hair (Fern) from Philotic Energy. I like the shape of it, the way the bangs and forelocks fall, and the flow when I move. Can you tell Mourna and I were at the same fashion show?

The show was quite a lot of fun. I got to meet a number of people that I'd known remotely, like Yukio Ida of Illuminati. Adaire was the completely raunchy MC, and she did an entertaining job.

Slow down, you movin' too fast
You gotta make the moment last
Just kickin' down the cobblestones
Lookin' for fun and Feelin' groovy ...

Got no deeds to do
No promises to keep
I'm dappled and drowsy and ready to sleep
Let the morningtime drop all its petals on me...
Life, I love you, All is groovy ...

It's rainy outside, and I long to hang out with a faun (Brandy Rasmuson) and a bunny (Sakuradawn Lei) on a warm rooftop.

Not me: Candy Cerveau

candy02


I am continuing the "not me" series this week, and I've begun with Candy Cerveau. I caught her yesterday in the middle of working on a new build for her shop, Eye Candy, and she was kind enough to snuggle into a bunny for me. I like her style, very sleek and simple for building work, and in green (which reminds me of the Emerald City where her shop is located).

I have a deep and abiding love for trickster holidays like April Fool's Day. Opinion is stratified -- some of my friends love it, and some are the soft-hearted easily-taken-in sort who hate it. I was almost taken in by FashCon and Violet Voltaire, but I thought to myself surely nothing posted on April 1st can be taken at face value. I did score a pair of pretty poo-themed earrings from Violet out of the bargain. :D

Me, myself and Elusyve

wintersquared01

Last night I was at the Sn@tch dance and said something totally ridiculous like I know I post a lot in my blog, I just hope y'all aren't getting sick of it." Of course, Winter chimed right in with "Too late!" After the usual round of insults, Winter and I whispered quietly that a blog war would be fun for April Fool's day... Which we accomplished early this morning.

Except, here's the fun part, Winter posted the one in his journal, using my shape and taking the piss out of my writing style (you rat bastard), and I posted the one in mine, using Winter's shape and writing style. (Did you like the sparkles? I totally added those just for Twilight fans.)

We had fun putting this together. Elusyve sat between us gleefully saying helpful stuff like, "Your hair isn't white enough" "Use the Trap skin" and "can I bonk both of you at once?" Her assistance was most necessary. In thanks for her help, we put together a small gay photo montage of Winter and Himself, and me and myself.

Now I have Winter Jefferson's shape. Whatever shall I do with it? *evil cackle*

achasquared01

This is Winter. Yes, Winter.

glitterwinter01


Yes, it's Winter, and yes, I've taken over this blog today. We all know that Achariya bores us to tears with her frequent posting on the fashion feed, so I went to her skybox to see what exactly powers all of that spurious creativity. Then I realized she'd left her username and password written on the wall...

So you get me in here today. We all know I'm prettier, dress better, and have more attachment points than that poseur will ever have. Plus, I'm a vampire, and we just naturally sparkle. If you want to see a REAL fashion blog, mine is over here.

Looking around Acha's skybox, I realized the secret to her frequent blogging: ... Wait, Elusyve, get off me, I'm trying to type some... .fff ls sodjlaskl; ELUSYVE! Everyone will figure out why we don't blog as often as Acha!

Hey! That's my...

Fine, I'll wear the kitty ears, just let me type a moment!

So yes, the secret to her frequent blogging is 234lk5lllllllllllllllll

ELUSYVE! Get your hands off my .... You've got to save some for the other girls!

Women. They simply can't keep off me. Anyway, it's her

Edit: Pfffft, some revenge. You'll never sparkle like I do, and my freenis is MUCH BIGGER, and it's PINK

mani02


Post three of Lazy Places style. I've been getting some incredible synesthesia lately, but not in the usual way. Instead of flashes of memory with smell, I've been getting computer screen synesthesia. Example: I'd put on this pair of pants from hybrid, and my mind filled with all the other stuff I was doing on my computer screen while I wore them, like the word document I was working on (a book review), my other browsers (my Japanese dress-up dolly), the roleplaying log I was writing in IM. I've never had this before, but this week it's happened twice... I wonder if this is a sign that my life is played out on this screen?

I studied Sakuradawn hard to make this look today. I'm even wearing Sakura hair! I don't normally go in for hair by big-name designers because I figure other people wear it better than I do, but I quite like how "lazy" this Maitreya hair makes me look. I also ganked the very flexible jacket-layer patches from /artilleri's/ Vicky shirt and stuck it on her jacket.

Lazing when I should be preparing to teach

hophop04

Welcome to post two of five-posts-about-Lazy Places. When I was putting together my outfits, I pondered Lazy Places style. I stalked Sakuradawn Lei's Flickr account to get ideas, and discovered that Lazy Places style consists of a few things. (1) Pants, usually jeans. (2) A cute tank top. (3) Stuff from Lazy Places. (4) Non-human bits, such as elf or animal parts. Working with these unofficial rules, I came up with this very lazy bunny. Today, the poses, the clever and cute Trix boots, and the head cupcake are all Lazy Places' work.

I've got on an awesome new item from /artilleri/ -- the 1st Mate Capris. I snagged them in all of the colors, and they're way too cute to remove. There are a few more new items at /artilleri/ that'll find their way into this space in the near future...

Lazing when I should be grading

lazy03
I think the blue peeps are affecting my vision...o_o


I've been having a sucktastic week. When that happens, I post like a mad person in my blog (because it's a source of positive energy and fun), and I also start to sing Mr. Rogers lyrics to myself.

What do you do with the mad that you feel
When you feel so mad you could bite?
When the whole wide world seems oh, so wrong
And nothing you do seems very right?
What do you do?
Do you punch a bag?
Do you pound some clay or some dough?
Do you round up friends for a game of tag?
Or see how fast you go?


It's all Lazy Places all the time for the next five posts. Can you spot all of the kool Lazy Places items I'm sporting? 8D Don't forget the most awesome poses!

Heal!

elfyness03

Once upon a time I thought I'd be cool like Mourna and Sai and Sakuradawn and Ellantha and put on some elf ears. I came across a pair at Illuminati -- they were scripted to match Den-Dou skins! Den-Dou is one of my favorite skin makers, so I had much glee.

Then I spent about three hours trying to properly fit the ears. "Have you made your ear size zero yet?" Mourna said patiently, about sixteen different times.

"No," I said stubbornly, turning and twisting the poor ears around because I was SURE they should fit my normal ear size. After a long, long time I set my ear size to zero, and by God Mourna was right. ........

I'm wearing the perfect updo for elfy ears, Pixel Dust's Charlotte hair. Autumn is retexturing these, and they'll be in her shop soon. I like that stray tendrils of hair curl around the ears as if it was meant for pointiness. I'm also wearing an ethereal dress by Moonshine. It's raggedy with a beautifully tied-up back (one of my favorite parts of the dress), and the design really suits this stubborn, idiotic elf.

Along with the necklace comes a story told better by Gabby over here; Ellantha let me know about this, and we both snuffled afterwards. Go say "heal!" -- And to the whole Fashion Planet feed today, I say heal!

Levity Defies Gravity

puppet02


When Fade Dana makes something, I know it'll be perfectly rendered and every so slightly disturbing. This is no exception, the Roadkill puppet that comes complete with a puppeteer hud. There's a version of the puppet that'll keep it held upright (like above), but if you want an AO with it, I recommend using Torridwear's Paraplu AO. Works like a charm, really, and it's what I'm using in these photos. The hud allows you to lunge forward and puppet at people, or laugh, or pet people (I think that's what that motion is). At any rate, it's another fine reminder of the range of stuff we can do in SL that has nothing to do with reality.

I'm wearing it with an outfit from Blue Blood -- Ghanima's prims are getting better and better, great work! My skin is from the new store Corrupted Innocence. I was taken by the neat and tidy mouth (not overly full) and the strong yet playful eyes. There are a lot of skinmakers around, but clearly there is a need for this kind of diversity, because everyone's vision of a good skin is completely different.
