Laissez les bon temps...

fluffy04


The Saints won right before Mardi Gras, and surely this is a sign. I've donned this wonderful Chanimations outfit (hat, fan, thong, pasties, necklace) in honor of the week, and am still marvelling at how well-made that thong is. It doesn't disappear mid-arse, and there's a semblance of reality to the fit of the fabric! I'm not one to display Acha's pixel body lightly on the blog; this is also a macabre skin review for the next Ugly Duck skin, The Mime. I love the creepy decayed carnival tropes that Fade is touching upon in these creations, and I also love the shading on her skin bums. (SLURL to Chanimations) (SLURL to Ugly Duck)

Flayed

owie03


Fade Lei of Ugly Duck has made a new batch o' skins. This is just one of them; I'll be wearing these beautiful and macabre ones for the next few days. This is called the Lion Tamer, and it comes with a gorgeous leather lion mask and a variety of body scarifications. I love that Fade isn't shrinking from other moods in Second Life, including the ones that express a darker emotion. Go see the sick beauty over at ( Ugly Duck )

Hello and welcome to an extreme close-up of sleep deprived Acha, eh? It's so that I can show off my new piercings, the Shadow of the Day from EllaBella. Once again I love the delicacy of her piercings. The woman is probably going blind staring at tineh microprims, but I'm going to enjoy her eyesight while it lasts. Facial piercings are pretty unisex in nature, and my male self likes them as much as my female self does. (SLURL to EllaBella)

I'm also wearing a Valentine's Day shirt from Nomine that sports a message about my purest heart's desire, which is for more sleep. Cheeky, dark and perfect. (SLURL to Nomine)

Skyping around

cute02


Honey Kitty's new-ish Cutie Cake dress is completely adorable and covered in cake, and because I'm skyping with a bunch of early-rising Australians (okay it's late in their timezone), I have absolutely no concentration for writing. Ever get that way in Second Life? Damn that voice for taking away my words. Anyway, Honey Kitty never fails to inspire me to OD on the cute. I'm also wearing a recent release from Calico Ingmann Creations, the Estris II. I'm wearing the II version of the hair because the I version literally touches the floor -- perfect hair for women who like kneeling a lot :D (I'm teasing, Cali!). (SLURL to Honey Kitty) (SLURL to Calico Ingmann Creations)

Also, I'm wearing EllaBella's Pretty Pearls Upon Your Lips piercing. This is unique in SL, a tiny row of delicate white pearls, and I always feel ladylike when I wear them. (SLURL to EllaBella.)

It's time to test the teleporter!

Today, I'm wearing a skin by Adore and Abhor, created for the Artist's Voice originals fair, available February 8 - 14. I am on team "Everybody Love One Another", of course, but in the interest of giving people the option to learn about Artist's Voice I'm going to link over to the website (over here). I like the sweet look of the skin -- I made my mouth smaller, more cupid's bow, to give the skin a more retro look.

I'm wearing it with an angelic dress from Blue Blood. The shoulderpads are cute little upswept sculpts, and I love the white version of the dress especially because it looks like a dress for an old-fashioned china cherub. The dress comes with thigh-high leggings that I'm not wearing, because I've got on this new set of shoes and socks from Ezura instead. There are a bevy of colors of these lolita maryjanes and socklets, and they really accentuate a sweeter look. (SLURL to Blue Blood) (SLURL to Ezura)

And the facial piercings are the wonderful rainbow set by EllaBella! (SLURL to EllaBella)

Whodat!

bracers02


Fade is really generous to her Ugly Duck group. There's a 250L entry fee, but the group gift skins for men and women are Teh Awsum. She's just put out three group gift skins for men, all about shaving. I really like it when my boy avatar looks slightly messy, like a beach bum or someone that's just thrown on his outfit, and these three skins help accentuate that look. The skins range from a full face of foam to half-done (above) to all cut up (example here). (SLURL to Ugly Duck)

Pimp!

Please go see Acha turn zombie for Serene Fairey! Isn't she lovely? Serene's avvie reminds me so much of Rizzo from Grease, same adorable spunkiness.

My daughter thinks she's supergirl

Good morning. I've already been to work and back! I spent my morning restocking the shelves of a certain retail store, sighing as I answered incessant questions about a highly publicized new product… No, it isn't out yet, darnit. 50-ish more days. I've been delighted recently by the dreadlocks coming from Tukinowaguma. This is the second one I've bought, and I like how they've constructed it -- soft and thick-looking, perfect for catching sand on the beach. My cardigan is a new one from Ki2. Tee hee, Kiki named it "unisexual cardigan" -- I'll try. The necklace is the neat "hopeless" rosary from House of Darcy, a delicate chain with a skull on it. Alas.
