Need to go buy more puzzles

carinyourcar01


Yesterday Alba did her first puzzle almost entirely by herself. She's nearly five, and I know that most kids probably do this earlier, but my own is way too energetic to chill out and focus. Yesterday I actually got a lot of photographing done because of this puzzle! I'm wearing the brilliant new Sam dress from (Elate!), with my own twist on it. I decided to hearken back to the 90s in Portland and wear it over some soft yoga pants from Surf Couture. I think my avatar is ready for a relaxing day, eh? Whereas I have to head to work in an hour… It was a quiet day on the internets for me, but I actually really needed it. (SLURL to Elate!)

I need Three Wolf Moon

sangre03


I've wanted to wear this mustache and goatee ever since getting it from Clawtooth for 50L Friday last week. It's so very dapper that it goes with this ensemble from Sangre Noir, the "Deadly Circus" line. I googled images of carnival barkers and came up with a few clothing elements: must have hat. Must have pointy stick. The variety of hat and pointy stick changes with each generation, but in general it was important that the hat be consequential so that everyone would notice him. The hat I've donned is from Mire, part of the magnate outfit. And, pardon me, but I'm completely and totally distracted (thanks, Azazeal!).

january Spring

chapiteau03


It's a glorious, warm January day in Florida -- 70 degrees outside, perfect for lazing back against a tree trunk and soaking up the vitamin D. I've had a strange month -- I worked retail all December long, and I realized that I need to teach in order to properly feel my mental mojo. I guess it's the curse of having a name that means "teacher." I'm sleepy and warm from the sun, and in SL I'm in a new set of skirts from ~silentsparrow~ (the Chapiteau, to go with the cute sweater set), and a new comfy tee from ~momo~, the Amore Mio top. The hair is fabulous piggies from Clawtooth named Woman of the Year. I always imagine Bubbles fastidiously fitting this hair -- he must be so cute in pigtails (this style will be released tonight!). Have a warm day, everyone!

Smells like cigarettes

geeky02


Someone stopped by Acha's skybox the other day wearing this shirt. My boy avvie stared, tilted his head, and when the other guy wasn't looking, totally stole it from him. Why was the shirt off? Ah, um, hm… The purpose of wearing that shirt is to show off the new necklace from Sabel Rose. I like how it's doubled, and am sorry that the skin shade kind of eats the design of the five-pointed star pendant. Just squint! The rest of the outfit is as geeky as a computer gamer should be. After this photo shoot, boi-Acha is totally going to chill out with some Resident Evil.

Pale bones

faun02


Last night I dropped out of the sky onto three people standing silently and holding skulls. They were in this outfit -- one in blue, one in white, one in green -- and each of them was wielding a wind-weathered deer skull. It was creepy to see them standing amid all the bunnies, contemplating death in faun outfits, but it was also very evocative, one of those Oh, right, this is Second Life moments. The outfit is the nicely drawn Spotty Bum Faun from ~Scribble~, and it has so many options for shirt, undershirt and bottoms that I can't quite calculate the math. (SLURL to Scribble)

Other parts of this outfit. The adorable booties are new from GOS (there's also an option to flash your painted toenails), the skin is a 200L gatcha skin from Den-Dou (love the lips on it), and the tentacles and armwarmers are from ~silentsparrow~.

Är jag bra ut?

air02


A few days ago I saw Miss Puma's post about Adjunct, and thought the style was interesting. I hopped over to the shop and picked up a few things -- this hat with hair (just Acha's shade of blond), and this pair of skinny zippered pants. I like the construction of these items! The shop is quirky and interesting, and has some other things like twirly mustaches and suspenders. (SLURL to Adjunct)

This skin is new to me from Muism. It's amazing how different my boy shape looks in each skin -- this one, with all its freckles and thick brows, makes me want to send him to Northern Europe. :D

Cartman's Poker Face in my brain

ghani02


Today, Miss Ghani sent me over her Blue Blood Sakito outfit. "Um," I said. "I'm currently kind of a space Smurf. Do you mind coming over to show me instead?" I'm in the middle of a series of bloggy posts for Rezzables, you see, and I didn't want to take off all the pink Tekeli-li armor. Ghanima looked so cool in her Trap skin and lamb hair that I made her pose for my blog, and here she is! The Sakito outfit has great fabric details (look at all those lurking paisleys in the folds of cloth), and a little ruffled set of bloomers under the belled tails. (SLURL to Blue Blood)

I wanna take a ride on your...

chaps02


So my boy avatar isn't remotely in the closet. You guys knew this, right? That being said, here I am posting in chaps. Anybody who wants to link to these photos and mention how gay he looks, please feel free! I absolutely love these new chaps from Shop Sey. They come in tons of ways to wear them, with all kinds of different layers and belt prims and shadow options. Yes, there's a no-jeans option, and no, you don't get to see it ;) . (SLURL to Shop Sey)

The facial piercings are from House of Darcy -- "male piercings" guaranteed to suit the boyish face. There are several options in the shop, and I really love them. (SLURL to House of Darcy)

Textured like a hardback novel

michami01


I fell into textures this morning in my inventory. Okay, it took a little longer to blog than usual due to being utterly distracted by the Top 10 worst fanfictions of 2009, but once I stopped crying with laughter… I wanted to wear MichaMi's newest creation, her Maisie sweater in beige, and show just how versatile it was by wearing it with this Bare Rose tutu and the soft-looking Tiny Bird Chicago hair. I love all of the textures in this outfit!
