Yodelehihu

yodel04


Two beautiful free things! Fricka Morgath made boy skins. She is all shy about them, but they're really nice Christmas Hunt items, and the rosy cheeks and nose make me feel like a fine young herdsman all ready for a ride up to Brokeback Mountain (who's with me? :D ). The other free thing in this post are the boots, below. J's has only a few group gifts a year, but the ones it has are amazing. Join the group and touch the Santa under new releases, and get this pair of fine grey boots.

OH RIGHT. My theme today is "scarves are unisex" -- DP**yumyum has a gatcha machine in front of the shop where you can score the lovely neckwrap I'm wearing below, and then I noticed that my in-box is full of cute scarves. Today I'm wearing a selection of them...

My name is Inigo Montoya

sword03


Two new things tonight! One, Dark Eden's ripped-up shrug. It sits on a girl's shoulders and just barely covers the important bits, but on a boy it's rugged enough to look like a proper battle-worn military man (or dissolute rake, like my boy avatar here). Two -- on the bottom photo, I'm wearing new gloves from Bliensen + MaiTai. Meant for a woman, the ornate cuffs reminded me of The Three Musketeers, perfect for roleplaying.

Black, red, and black all over

ingenue


Here is a post full of pent-up girlishness. I bring you three pretty dresses from Ingenue (top), ~momo~ (middle), and Musashi-do (bottom) for three different holiday moods. I like to call them "retro", "sexeh", and "Caledonian New Year's party". I love the fabric, interesting shapes, and prim construction on all three of these. The jewelry is by alaMood -- pretty Hebrew symbols for Channukah, and a wooden necklace and ring set that thrills my inner hippie.

Getting shirty

fops01


Three talented designers (hyasynth, Allegory and Radio) decided to make t-shirts. This is not very characteristic of them, so when I first went into the Fox in the Snow shop I pondered that I missed their usual style. But then I realized that the shirts were simply the means through which these guys were conveying cute art, and proceded to buy out the shop. *cough* …I really love these doodles… Each of them has a distinctive style -- Radio's is panoramic and detailed, hya's is manga-esque and nature-oriented, and Allegory's is stark and iconic and macabre. For my boy avatar (who is expensive to clothe, what a habit I've picked up) it was the perfect way to add to his wardrobe. Oh, the collar? …Move along, nothing to see here... (Go visit Fox in the Snow!)

LotBaN: The Rainbow Goth

LotBaN Blog Header

Darkness may be settling in sooner in my neck of the woods, but there's still room for a dash of color. I've wrapped up a rainbow in black in satin with Fleet from +++BLUE BLOOD+++, and you're welcome to come join me (or simply steal the outfit details) on my blog, Lifestyles of the Broke and Notorious!

Christmas gatcha!

blondie02


Yesterday, Ellantha told me that the ultimately cool Japanese foursome of Perturb/ation, Clematis, Zakka and Nonino have begun their next Gatcha holiday festival -- Christmas! I absolutely loved the Halloween one, so much so that the month of October was dedicated to hanging out in the golden-orange thirty linden skybox all decorated with thirty linden adorable items, enormous joy for so little out of the gatcha machine. Their Christmas gatcha presents are just as awesome, fifteen items in a gumball machine for 30L a try. They're transferrable, so that if you get a few copies of the Christmas Coat by Perturb/ation (modeled above), you can pass them along to pals. { Go to the gatcha festival here! }

Drowsy and warm

drowsy


When I was in Drowsy yesterday checking the location of the BettiePage (BP*) jacket, I boggled at the prettiness of the sim. Drowsy is amazingly well-built, the combination of talented creators and storytellers. Each vista looks like a film set, rife with potential action and meaning. My Alice-in-Drowsyland sweater comes from ~silentsparrow~, a snuggly piece with a quilted bit of cuteness on the chest, something that looks handmade for a cold season. (Now back to giving my students their final exams.)

That BP* jacket...

gabrielle_kristan
Gabrielle Kristan modeling the BP* jacket


I received a very nice IM today from Gabrielle Kristan regarding the location of the BettiePage Voyager jacket. (Moral: be careful of IMing me, you could end up in my blog.)

Gabrielle Kristan: Hi, I was reading your blog the other day and when it came to the jean jackets from BP (bettiepage) You had a little note asking if these were out yet. Im not sure if you know or not but I guess they have been out I have spend like a week looking for them and found them in some small corner of the sim. I have a direct lm to them if you get the question from people asking you if you know where they are :p

The location is here -- it'll dump you at the central TP point. Then go find the train that's fallen into the water at: Drowsy 38, 34, 23. The gorgeous items are in the train cars, yep.

For my RL Christmas list

When I was hanging about with my pal Fade Lei (of Ugly Duck) a few days ago, she pointed to her feet. "Look! New boots from Shop Sey!" I was struck by their soft-looking comfiness, and then spent a few days unsuccessfully fighting internet lag to get them. I finally got my hands on them last night, as well as this beautiful fluffy sweater from the same shop, and thought it was only fitting to have Fade model them on her wee girl avatar. Isn't the height differential on boy and girl avatars extreme? Sadly, this is totally the difference between IRL me and my husband too...
