hyasynth Tiramisu

hyasynth was so adorable in teal and purple this morning that I photographed her instead of myself. She's in her usual mashup of friends' stuff, and as always, a little bit fey and inhuman. I don't think I've ever seen hyasynth without something that shows her true faery origin...

My daughter just climbed onto my lap and stuck her cold toes on my leg, and I realized that I'd much rather be playing with her all day than getting ready for the battle… In real life, it's the launch day of a certain much-touted application, and I'll be working all day and night to make sure it is disseminated to the masses. Please let me not be trampled! Please!

Yes means yes


My brain is fried from teaching. Three hours of student speeches does that to a woman. They were all uniformly good, of course! So yes, this is the last day for the Black Bacchanalia, and I'm in the offerings from Sn@tch, demure little skirts and proper pants that are perfect for secretarial work or church on Sunday. Ok, maybe not. The hair is new from Pazazz, and looks astonishingly like my real life hair.

Blue and Purple Bacchanalia


I've enjoyed having the Black Bacchanalia on hyasynth's sim. It means that I can stand around the Rookery and run into friends without having to leave home. I've encountered all of the pretty gothy/alternative women in Second Life, and even a few men too (a rare breed in this online space!). I'm in a few more outfits from this event. Some of ~silentsparrow's~ gatcha items, her Batty babydoll, and a super-fluffy dress from Blue Blood. Beware of the evil gatcha machines!

(SLURL to ~silentsparrow~) -- once you get there, click the mushroom in the courtyard to TP upstairs to the Rookery. Oh, also, if you love the Rookery's look, go see the other things Azazeal has created at October Rust.

Ugly Duck has a new group gift out for men and women. I've got the men's on, above -- it's the Duck Suit, and comes with flippers, tailfeathers, that duck hat, and this glowing yaller skin. ("Yaller" is Southern for yellow.) It's 250L to join the Ugly Duck group, and totally worth it for all of the awesome gifts she gives us. (SLURL to Ugly Duck) (Oh, the shorts are from Vitamen.)

I am a sucker for Allegory's stripes


There's a new thingie going on called the Black Bacchanal (and I suspect that this was the teaser blog post for the event). It looks to be a traveling circus sort of thingie, and this month it's in the ~silentsparrow~ sim. I hopped up to The Rookery to get a look at the vendors, and noticed that they were all nice and gothy and dark -- yes, well suited to the name. The event started at 10 AM, and you get there thus: Go to ~silentsparrow~ (SLURL). Head to the courtyard and click a mushroom to teleport up.

I'm in the offerings from Schadenfreude -- different skirt and shirt outfit bits, and this lovely skin (finally! She's only been teasing us about it forever!).

In the South we call it "pank"

Vo Pralou of Heroin Ghic

My blog was getting too brown-toned so I photographed Vo again. He's always got something interesting going on, which today includes these unreleased pants (release them already) and awesome Picnic shoes in cow-pattern. I bought these for myself just a few days ago, and he's beat me to the punch. (That's fine, Vo pulls them off better than I could!) Go see his blog at Heroin Ghic.

In lieu of a PhD, I'll just think


Why do we roleplay, in SL or anywhere? I've been thinking about this question a lot lately. I've had three roleplaying pals from Second Life so far, and each experience has been similar in one important respect: I became caught up and immersed in the story that we told. Roleplaying is addictive, and I think it's because humans hunger for stories that process and make sense out of their lives.

Roleplaying is a controlled universe in which you can be a co-creator of story, one of a pair of gods that dictates the direction and growth of your character. The person that you play with becomes stupidly close to you for the duration of the game; you learn about them from the inside-out, because you're being allowed to walk around in their mind. This can be good and bad.. Sometimes, if it doesn't work out, you're left with half a story in your mind. When it does work out, it feels like an extra dimension of reality in your head, a place you can hop into with an easy mental sidestep. Fabulous for procrastination and escapism, too!

Um and so my roleplaying elfboy here tends to wander ~silentsparrow~ early in the morning, thinking deep thoughts and playing with his clothing. :D

Like they did in that movie The Freshman


I admit that I didn't take the time to read the kanji before wearing the new Chika tattoo from HUZ. Usually I do. There's nothing worse than asking for a few letters inscribed upon your body, only to have the mischievous inker put the inscription "enjoys eating endangered species" across you, in a different language. I trust Hunain Bellic, however, and this tattoo was too pretty not to blog. (But if anyone knows what it says, feel free to tell me!) [SLURL to HUZ]


***Geta: Sweetaholic Geta set in red and black / Tabi
***Pantsu: ~momo~ uma panties in butter
***Tattoo: HUZ Chika - Fresh
***Hair: Fashionably Dead Sparks - Dust
***Skin: Frick - Holiday Romance - Goth - Freckles

What could this be?

Is this thing working? HA! I'm in! Look at me taking over Achariya's precious little blog! No one is safe from meee and I'm going to-- oh, hello there! My name is Kandy. My name is Kandy Kanaveral, and I have some information for you. Delicious, wonderful information. Information that might spread a little bit of light on all of those strange flyers that have been showing up everywhere recently.

ThATS RIGHT! I'm talking about the Black Bacchanal. Which is to be only the BEST and most AMAZING event to ever take place any WHERE. There will be Sparrows and Canaries and Blooooood and oh right pretty laces tainted with Arsenic, but that's not all. On a Wednesday.... Wednesday the Thirty First in a certain Rookery somewherewhere all the pretty birds roost.

And I will be so prettty, and you will be so prettty and you will all thank me so much for being sooooooooooo pretty. Why are you looking at me? Stop looking at me. You're staring at me and that's not very nice. There is no time for that anyway. The carnival is coming, and there is no time to waste. But don't think I didn't see what you did little girl. I'm coming for you. And you will pay.

Alba's bedtime post


Okay, miss hya. The first thing I thought of when I saw your adorable set of animal socks was this bit of excellent poetry. Then I realized that you'd quoted it in your notecard! Anyway...

Fox in socks
on box on Knox.
-- Dr. Seuss

Also, I love my new Siddean bracelet from alaMood, named after the wonderful designer. (SLURL to ~silentsparrow~) (SLURL to alaMood)

A piece of me


Two new things before I run off and teach iPhone class. First, Illninia Skins has a bunch of new male skins out. I'm wearing two here, the Niko in light skin tone and the Blas in pale. These skins are very photo-realistic, so much that I get the Uncanny Valley feeling when I stare at the face. My male skins tend to be more drawn-looking, but these look perfect for roleplaying rough fellas, and are definitely a unique take on male skins! (Go see other skins at the Illninia Skins blog)

Second, I love this all-in-one denim outfit from Arai. :D


***Shoes: Picnic panu shoes - black
***Hair: RIOT! Homicide hair in blonde 4
***Outfit: ARAI all-in-one denim indigo
***Skins: Illninia skins 01 niko light no hair, Illninia skins 05 blas pale no hair
