(Pajama) Party On

Acha: Uhm, Terry? What do you do if every time you see this one incredible outfit, you think you're gonna hurl?
Terry: I say hurl. If you blow chunks and it comes back, it's yours. But if you spew and it bolts, then it was never meant to be.

Acha: Hey Terry. Did you ever find Bugs Bunny attractive when he put on a dress and played girl bunny?
Terry: No. Pffft. No.
Acha: Neither did I. *cough* I was just asking.

Terry: Did you ever see that "Twilight Zone" where the guy signed a contract and they cut out his tongue and put it in a jar and it wouldn't die, it just grew and pulsated and gave birth to baby tongues? Pretty cool, huh?

CSR Pirate

pirate01


This morning I woke up to realize that it's CSR time! I had a sleepy conversation with Beanie that went like this. Oh wow, it's CSR day. And Beanie said, Actually, Japan began half a day before us... Of course, it's been frustrating because everyone's doing it, which means that it's impossible to teleport anywhere, but that's just one little barrier on my path toward the DP**yumyum sheep avatar! This outfit is the result of too much freebie hunting. I went to join the Midnight Madness for the Wishbox shoes, and got sucked into this lovely pink pirate outfit (which is not free, of course)...*sigh*

This morning, another blogger asked whether it's helped me to be a "niche" blogger. Actually, I don't have an intentional niche. I simply write about what excites me! The one bit of discipline that I have is to post every single day. Sometimes I suck and have off-days, but the concentration on my look and technique (and the daily practice) has really made me grow. -- That's my advice for new bloggers.

I vill conquer Earth!

octopussy01


I've been trying my best to pin down Fade Dana's design aesthetic. I showed my husband these pictures this morning and said, "Is it WWII pinup villain, like Irina Spalko from Kingdom of the Crystal Skull?" "Nah," said Dave, "It's more pulp Martian." I think I'll narrow the style down to Ray Bradbury's Martian Chronicles, mixed up with a bit of Bettie Page. Edit: D'oh. The helmet is called Octopussy, so I'm clearly a Bond girl.

I'm impressed. This is eating my head, yet it's still sexy. It's the Octopussy helmet in green, and I'm wearing it with the zip-up frogsuit from Fade's Amphibiac outfit. I think that the perfect skin for this comes from MiaSnow -- bright lips against a nice gold skintone for that otherworldly look.

You put the lime in the coconut

ziggy03


I feel unfaithful to Mourna, wearing this new dress from Sangre Noir (formerly Subtle Submission). I warned her about it. Hey Mourna, I said, there's a pretty dress that lets your hips hang out - I know it's your style. She got distracted by other pretty things, however, so here I am. I quite like the dark-on-dark textures, and the way the formal loin-cloth flows down from a tidy bodysuit. (SLURL to Sangre Noir)

Belochka poked me that Guild of Crie has out an incredible opera glass with associated AO. I went to look and sheepishly didn't have the funds for it, but I did snap up this Dark Knight Clock monocle. I feel so posh and Edwardian here, all set to view a crime scene or scrutinize a pretty face. I'm wearing it with the new Zelly mohawk from Schadenfreude. With the bevy of colors in the fatpack, it's hard not to tint it orange with blue ends, but I restrained myself. On my neck and ears, pretty "languid goth" jewelry by Sn@tch, and on my feet SLink pumps. These are the sorts of shoes that one must tint to match one's skin, so don't look too closely at my tinting. The shoes are beautiful; my tinting work can always use practice.

Nerdtastic

nerdy01


I'm still up to my earballs in Rezzables Swan Song dresses, so when I took them off I threw on another nerdy outfit. This was inspired by these knickers from SMS. I remember when I was ten, getting my first pair of knickers from my mom. They were purple velvet, and had buckles at the knee, and I wore those to DEATH. (God knows why knickers were in style in the 80s.) When I saw these at SMS, I had to pick them up. The shirt is a new one from ~momo~, and isn't typical of her style at all -- it's distressed with muted colors and a ripped hemline, definitely a different direction for her clothing.

The hair is the Waka & Yuki watermelon gift, the socks are neato ones from Noju (another nod to Beanie's blog for introducing me to this store), and I'll talk about the cool shoes at some other point when I've taken a better picture of them. O, and my glasses are totally reflecting pr0n. 8D

I haz a head fish


I spent all morning putting together Srs Bzns outfits for Rezzable's Swan Song, so I was in the mood to totally cut loose. I'm wearing a combination of stuff that I picked up from Beanie's awesome blog and the Watermelon Hunt -- especially featuring this nerdtastic robot jumper from Mocorin, with Mocorin's Watermelon Hunt necklace. The hunt is full of awesome, quality items! I've been quite impressed so far!

Scrunch, scrunch

katdress


I spent some time this afternoon sorting inventory, always a worthy cause when it's pushing 41k. I ran across a few dresses that I'd saved because I knew that other people would blog them -- the purple panda dress by *katat0nik*, and the Blue Blood Resistance dress. I added bloomers to the purple panda top, just because I like those bloomers so much... Both outfits reminded me of debauched dollies, so I added some innocent-gone-horribly-wrong skins from Tacky Star, and some new soft-looking hair from :69:.

Along with these dresses, please note the BOOTS! These are new from Rebel Hope, and are called the Milan Suede Scrunch boots. I imagined the sound as I walked over gravel: scrunch, scrunch. I also like the construction -- sleek through the leg, sexily lumpy over the ankle, perfectly pointy.

My child is obsessed with the Peanutbutter Jelly Cat (don't click, really). Bath time tonight consisted of the girl chanting this over and over again until my ears bled. I assume she'll grow out of this in time, right? RIGHT?

I'm too annoyed at RL to write much this morning, but this post is about a few things: Cool posemaster poses from Idoru Cyberstar (hah, I recognize the William Gibson reference), gorgeous jewelry from Sable Rose, a mesh shirt from Connors that is perfect for showing off my ~silentsparrow tattoos. Oh, and Crimson + Clover hair! SLURLs below.

Bloodiest Sparrow: Aisuru Reiko

aisuru02
"Bloodiest Sparrow" Aisuru Reiko


Aisuru is one of those self-effacing types who denies that she deserves anything, but I think the expressiveness of her almond eyes alone wins this prize. "BLOOD," she seems to be thinking. (Okay, probably not.) Aisuru Reiko is the last winner of last night's "Bloodiest Sparrow" contest. I really like the dark-on-dark and the mixture of different pieces of ~silentsparrow~ clothing with other designers, making the look very cabaret noir. (Also see Nivaya's look and Terry's look.)

***Skin: Sn@tch Velvet Matte Bloodlust (Fed)
***Hair: Little Heaven-Suzune black, dark
***Eyes: Poetic Color-Night Rain, large
***Shirt: Silent Sparrow-Gutter Glitter Half-top in Gloom
***Corset: Jaywalk-Analeigh, black
***Shorts: Shop Seu, sho-pan
***Skirt: Silent Sparrow-Nephilim Skirt with bow, ash
***Stockings: League, Ella stockings, black
***Shoes: Sn@tch, Baby Jane, stripes, grey
***Blood: Silent Sparrow birthday massacre blood shirt (present from party)
***Hat: Illusion-Carrol Top Hat

Bloodiest Sparrow: Nivaya Barbosa

Nivaya Barbosa won "Bloodiest Sparrow"


Earlier I posted one of the three Bloodiest Sparrow winners, Terry Toland. Now we have what might be the inverse of Terry's outfit -- Nivaya Barbosa in various bits and pieces of ~silentsparrow~ gear. Red and black, Niv mixed up pieces to get a unique look, and topped it with the new birdie tattoos in cherry.

"Doesn't it look like the birds are pecking at my blood?" Niv said macabrely.

Bloodiest Sparrow: Terry Toland

terrytoland
Terry Toland won "Bloodiest Sparrow"


Last night at hyasynth's rezday party, we had a small, relaxed contest for the bloodiest looking Twittery Bird -- the winners (there are three) got to have their outfits featured in this blog. The first winner is Terry Toland, for her "Wild Rose" outfit. I love the combination of sweet and debauched, unhappy and hopeful.

Terry says: Inspired by reflections on a broken heart. If there was a theme song, it would be "Where the Wild Roses Grow" by Kylie Minogue & Nick Cave.

***Dress: snow glass suite from ~silentsparrow~
***Shoes: "Tie me up Dolly" shoes - White w/Red Toe from .:Periquita:.
***Necklace etc.: SweetHeart set – Lost from {Violet Voltaire}
***Hair: Avarice hair from DBS Heart
***Skin: Vengeance skin from {Frick}
***Eyes: Vengeance 1 eyes from {Frick}

Another summer Sunday

neko02


Another Sunday, another struggle with the chibi about what to wear. So far she's brought out: A nightgown. A princess dress-up dress. A dress she wore when she was 18 months old. Now she's standing in her underpants in the middle of a wardrobe packed with pretty pink outfits, saying that she has nothing to wear. ...It starts so young...

I'm in a few new items -- this skin is something I picked up from the Harajukubox skin fair; it comes with the ears and tail. (And hah, I photo'd a few times and randomly thought, hmmm, the drapes [my hair] don't match the carpet [the tail], do they...) I'm wearing it with a skirt and shirt so tiny they might as well be meant for neko-style, the new Marloes outfit from Zenith.

I almost forgot to mention the most awesome hair and jewelry! If you wanted jewelry to match Schadenfreude's electro-cutie set, here it is -- the cameos are texture-changing to jive with the entire set of dresses and ties. SO COOL. The hair is new too, Schadenfreude's Boon-mee (this is a Korean word, but I haven't checked to see what it means yet). I like the Pippi Longstockings quality of the pigtails, and the pointy bangs.

I'm sleepy and cranky today; maybe I'll send my neko-av to church instead of going myself...

Bonus photo! Last night was hyasynth's fourth rezday party. It was a lot of fun, and all the pretty people can be seen in the ~silentsparrow~ flickr group over here. Terry, Nivaya and Aisuru won the "Bloodiest Sparrow" contest, and I'll be poking you for your featured spots. :D
