HUZ tattoo photo contest

huz01


The theme of this post is, "Christmas over; off to the islands." Oh I wish. Instead, I'm up at 5:30 to head to WORK!

I'm happy to report that HUZ tattoos is having a photo contest (named Tattoo This!) that is ending on January 15th. This contest pertains to two new tattoo releases. One of them I'm wearing (better picture below), the Amnesia tattoo. (Get it?! I loved that movie.) The other one is the extremely evocative Android tattoo, which you'll have to go see in the shop. It's very Bladerunner! Hunain says: "Participants are to use any OR both of these tattoos along with any accessories of their liking and create a thematic art picture, the pictures should be submitted to Hunain Bellic, full permissions in a notecard." You can get more information about the contest from the poster at HUZ. (SLURL to HUZ)

Runes and rituals

guards02


~silentsparrow~ came out with a new suit to match the Ritual gown. This one has a medieval-ish feel to it, and looks like something that Joan d'Arc would wear to battle. Either that or the Highlander… When I think epic I think Winter Jefferson, so he's joined me for a little style-off. I couldn't beat his pretty, so he's victorious in the bottom photo. "There can be…only…ONE!"

There is a Nomine skin to match this outfit that I will write about with the girl avatar.

Bouncing like a tigger

meow02


I spent time yesterday stamping my CSR cards and got a veritable bevy of awesomeness. I wanted to give the DP**yumyum Tiger avatar a little more love, and dressed him up all boyishly -- and damned if I don't look just like a Hobbit. (Mmmm. Hobbits.) [ More information about CSR is here! ]

Stoqued!

toque01


The very sweet Jenika Connolly sent me this dress to review, the floaty School Daze Winter outfit. It has a babydoll option and a cocktail dress option, and comes with all of those extras that you see -- choker, thigh-highs, gloves, maryjanes! I love the floaty bits descending from the dress, and thought it perfectly matched this group-gift skin from Ugly Duck.

I'm wearing Maitreya's toque today because I've been innundated with toque-propaganda of late. You know the look, boys in skin-tight pants or leggings and a big t-shirt, mid-length hair held back by a toque… It's such a cute idea that I immediately needed this one for SL.

Oh, Fricka

frick01


It was a chilly winter afternoon, and I spent it tooling around Albero a bit. There are so many interesting shops there that I couldn't really pass up, including !DADA! -- this vivid top with the waist-tie is from that shop, bought on an impulse as I walked past. My inventory is exploding even without any shopping, mostly because of the gorgeous group gifts that abound at this time of year. Fricka Morgath (of Frick skins) is so very generous, and I absolutely love the red eyeshadow and green lashes of this holiday gift makeup. I'm in all the skintones here… I've also got on a new creation from Studio Sidhe, this glove-with-chain set that you're probably going to see on my avatar all season long. Now back to staring at my inventory...
