With a smile on your mouth and your hand on your...HUH!


It's Lady Gaga night at the local gay club, and I am too old, tired and married to go. Instead, I'll pretend to be a preraphaelite princess in SL. I'm in a gown from Falln in my favorite old rusty orange, and new hair from Gritty Kitty. The poses are awesome ones from Del May -- I like how the movement of the poses still doesn't distort the joints or clothing. Now let's all go hum some Lady Gaga lyrics… or would you like some Christina Rossetti instead?

She clung about her sister,
Kissed and kissed and kissed her:
Tears once again
Refreshed her shrunken eyes,
Dropping like rain
After long sultry drouth;
Shaking with anguish, fear, and pain,
She kissed and kissed her with a hungry mouth...

I'm not sure which is dirtier. (Just kidding. It's Lady Gaga; Christina Rossetti was perfectly innocent.)

Fukubukuro from Curious Kitties


Curious Kitties just came out with this New Year's lucky bags, also known as fukubukuro! There are options to buy a 1,000L bag or a 3,000L bag -- I got the cheaper version, and was totally happy with it. There are at least three full outfits in each bag, including shoes and a belt and a hat and a man-purse, and while the contents of the bag vary because it's a 'lucky bag', the one I got for a friend had the same general outfit elements, so it's possible that you'll get this one too. I love the Crazy Ameshin Jacket and the Multi-feathered skull coat + shirt set and the Cyber Punk Full Outfit, as well as Ameshin's unique take on doodled brocade on her Sy Leather Shirt. These are an excellent value, and there are lucky bags for girls (in 'cute' and 'goth' flavor) as well. (read more about it here) ( SLURL to Curious Kitties )

3DCC: We Leave You in Pieces


This is the second of several posts about Cosmic Travellers by 3DCC, the 3D Creators Collaboration. As I mentioned, 3DCC has created two complete avatars, male and female, and all of the strangely beautiful accessories to go with it. Miasnow created skins, eyes, jewelry and outfits, JASstore created a photoset and particle-spewing boots, GROLLWERK made beautifully chunky space gear, The Stringer Mausoleum made a fancy dress and hair, Sofia London created a cute little world-turtle hold, and Xcentricity made an elaborate handbag -- not all of these items are shown in these pictures yet!

[ Go see the vast coolness. The installation opens today. ]



3DCC: We Come in Peace


This is the first of several posts about Cosmic Travellers by 3DCC, the 3D Creators Collaboration. This group of designers got together and created fascinating space-inspired elements for two complete avatars, male and female. Miasnow created skins, eyes, jewelry and outfits, JASstore created a photoset and particle-spewing boots, GROLLWERK made beautifully chunky space gear, The Stringer Mausoleum made a fancy dress and hair, and Xcentricity made an elaborate handbag -- not all of these items are shown in these pictures yet! The avatar is beautiful and alien, and the designers are truly talented to collaborate yet maintain distinctive styles.

Yukata Happy New Year

Happy new year everyone!!

Click the banner to see more pictures.

Yukata for the shrine


Ring out, wild bells, to the wild sky,
The flying cloud, the frosty light;
The year is dying in the night;
Ring out, wild bells, and let him die.

Ring out the grief that saps the mind,
For those that here we see no more,
Ring out the feud of rich and poor,
Ring in redress to all mankind.

-- Alfred Lord Tennyson

The Golden Hind


Late last night a very kindly pal of mine dropped a number of skins on me -- all from one of my favorite male skinmakers, Den-dou. They were colorful and creative, with masks, kitty-stripes, and a few with girl makeups, and all apparently for 200L a pop from a gatcha machine (and all trans!). I love this one, the Golden Boy, especially. Thanks for this cool idea, Denchu! (SLURL to Den-Dou), look for the gumball machine by the front door.

Also new is this scarf from Gritty Kitty, the Mr. Tumnus scarf. With a name like that I had to turn myself into a faun -- now I look like something out of The Ballad of the Golden Hind eh? Perhaps if you catch me, I'll transform into a man… (SLURL to Gritty Kitty.


***Tail: Hybrid faun tail small (tinted)
***Nails: Schadenfreude Green Spectacles (gold) - an old hunt item

Bonus photo!

hyasynth all warm in the snow
hyasynth standing about in her pretty new creation

I've no reason to fear


I've had enough of broken cups
I've had enough of scenes
Of other people's laughter
When we go through our routines
The lilies aren't in season
So I've no reason to fear
That you'll love me like you
Did last year…

Lyrics by Marc Almond

I'm in a new ~silentsparrow~ top set, the Chapiteau. There are so many options in each set, and the gauzy undershirt alone is so very pretty that I had to photo many combinations. The hat and stockings are by Royal Blue for Designers United. I haven't stopped by the installation yet, but I'm looking forward to it… (SLURL to ~silentsparrow~) (SLURL to Designers United).

Oh you may not think me pretty...


I deny trying to look like a certain wizard. I put on this outfit, tilted my head, and thought, "This outfit needs a wand, it does." If I really wanted to look more like Him, I'd put on whiter hair -- the only problem then is looking too much like Winter Jefferson. Perhaps my wizard is the newest Gary Stu at Hogwarts, next in line to win the Quiddich cup for, um, Ravenclaw. …I think I'll go write that fic now…

(By the bye, isn't the new Den-dou Eito skin pretteh?)

Shiny bubbles in the air

Miss Bubbles Clawtooth

Bubbles wafted seductively into my photoglobe tonight still adjusting her stockings. I immediately marveled at the sheer size of her size-13 shoes, and she admitted that they were custom-made just for her. From the tip of her moustachio to the toe of her stilleto she's a dashing sight, all garmented in Starlust's best. Clenched between her cupid-bow lips is a Hoorenbeek Virginia SL in an elegant holder -- Vegas, meet Breakfast at Tiffany's.

Twink rock


Yesterday I wrote about HUZ tattoos' Tattoo This! contest. Today I'm wearing the other tattoo for the contest, the Android tattoo (slurl to HUZ for more information). I'm also wearing an incredibly low-slung pair of pants from +grasp+. Meant for girls, these pants come in a pack with thong undies that hang out over the top of the pants. Very sexy, I like how the hipbones show! The +grasp+ group also has three gifts out in the shop right now; activate your group tag to get the necklace, ring, cuff and scarf.

Small note to designers who've given me girl stuff to review: I'm writing in my girl avvie less and less of late, so I apologize for being slow! The boy avatar has been inspiring me more, simply because he's new and shiny. I'll probably get back to the girl eventually. =)
