Fluffy with boots


[Gos] came out with new boots. They cost 895L, but the laces and legs have six different color options. I dig the details on these boots, including the dark leather design on the toes and heel and laces, and the sculpted bell around the upper calf. The rest of my outfit is inspired by Zala Wonder, because of her unique and awesome style… and whenever I fill in more than my usual number of attachment points, I think of her!

***Cuffs: Violet Voltaire gank cuffs in white with black stitching
***Boots: [Gos] Burlesque boots model 1.0
***Pants: LeeZu BritPants / silver

Stuff makes the world go round


I realized that it's been a while since I've taken a photo of my cluttered living space, so here 'tis. I tend to pick up stuff from Japanese home and garden sims, like the one that Zacca and Clematis is on, and also from the super-awesome Albero fairs. Herbalys has a new amazing build, the "Herbalys Sky Orchard," that you can see over here in my Flickr stream.

But the main point of my post is that October Rust has created a gorgeous two-prim lantern, the New Dawn Fades. (Go see it over here at October Rust).

Forgot to shave


This morning MiaSnow sent me a new boy skin, Hunny Boi, and it tickled me enormously. I even applied some whiskers that Helena sent out once to complete the beach bunneh look… Aside from the rabbit teeth and nose, the skin is nicely done, and the bum shading is particularly lush (but you'll have to try on the demo to see). I also woke up to a sad case of the SL-cankles. Oyyy, SL, why you gotta give my avatar gout?! (SLURL to MiaSnow)

I wear this crown of twigs...


Dunno what to say, today really has been profound for me. I managed to get the balls to change an important something about my life, and I'm really happy that I did. Um, I guess I'm celebrating by blogging (as usual). This outfit came about because of the socks: I realized that Radio's socks look best paired with Radio's dresses, because they both have the same whimsical hand-drawn quality. I found the Balderdash twig crown out shoppin' the old Starlust. It's gorgeous, Saiyge, a fabulous crown for equinox (okay I'm off schedule by six months). (SLURL to Scribble) (SLURL to Balderdash)

In love with Alice soundtrack


I set eyes on this prettily-made skirt and blouse set from (5th&Oxford), and my mind immediately went to the lolita place. The classic bell shape of the skirt inspired me, perhaps, or the cuteness of the tank top. The top comes with its own ruffle, but I attached a ruffled collar instead, from the G*Field shirt beneath. As always with Roslin & CJ's stuff, I admire the anal-retentive construction; these items were clearly poured-over with great love, yet are pared-down enough to be worn with any kind of styling. (SLURL to 5th&Oxford)

P.S. Alice in Wonderland soundtrack. The Franz Ferdinand Lobster Quadrille is total <3.

I don't


Have you ever been married in a virtual world? I have, but not Second Life. Back ten years ago or so, maybe more, I played Everquest. My dark elf met a nice boy dark elf and we got hitched in a sim where large bipedal eagles dwelt. It was pretty there. Fountains and bird spawn. I remember that I took his last name, and mine became something ridiculous, like Morquen Daybane or something. My wedding outfit was a set of silver armor that stood out nicely against the midnight black skin and pale hair. I don't remember why the marriage ended. I think real life ate me, and I quit playing EQ.

This dress put me in mind of marriage, of course. It is a wedding dress from Nymphetamine, from the new Vivy set. It comes in a sexy babydoll as well. (SLURL to Nymphetamine)

Homicidal hair


Heh, I'm hovering between genders again. Riot Core created some new hair for his store RIOT! -- it's called Homicide, and I really dig the whisps around the ears and the high pointy bangs. The thick Springsteen-esque headband is color changing. I'm also wearing a set of jewelry from Schadenfreude, the Vitalle set (earrings and ankh). I've loved Schadenfreude's ankh necklace since version 1, and this one comes with a hud that changes the metal. Awesome and versatile as always. Bendy straw … You'll have to beg Loafy for that one. (SLURL to RIOT!), or if this doesn't work, poke the designer Riot Core.

***Straw: Loafy's New Bendy Straw (not for sale? Poke Loafy for it.)
***Shirt: Arai Long T Pocket White
***Eyes: Ugly Duck Beast Eyes
***Skin: Blowpop N2 Elizabeth - tone A - 6 - Twilight 1
***Hair: RIOT! Homicide in Blond 2
***Necklace and earrings: Schadenfreude Vitalle set

I see what you did there, Monday


Isn't Facebook interesting? I've been talking to a long-lost high school pal lately via Facebook messages, and it really is like warping the time-space continuum. I'm kind of happy that we didn't have instant and continual access to each other in our late teens and twenties so that we could all disperse and grow and seek new networks of pals. I worry that kids nowadays leave home and don't have to leave home, if you know what I mean… Their lives are far too documented and they can't ever start anew. However, reconnecting after years apart is creepy good fun. "So what have you done with the past 18 years?" "Well, I have three kids…"

I'm in the ~silentsparrow~ Wild.release stampcard item, Lysi. I love it. I might glue it to my body like I did with hya's Aconite. (SLURL to ~silentsparrow~)

Not me: Infra Violet

Infra Violet

I really dig Miss Infra's avatar. When she joined SL she had a very distinct idea about how she wanted her avatar to look. Short, comfortably cushioned. She said she had in mind an ancient idea of proportion, something wide and soft and inviting with a big nose and big feet. I think she's succeeded, her avvie looks like the ultimate geek girl BFF that you spill all your secrets to; pretty awesome for someone a few weeks old. She was kind enough to pose for my blog…

***Shoes: HOC lowtops
