Copper bones

newstuff_small


You can't actually have any of the ~silentsparrow~ clothing in this photo, but your alt can! Or your 30-days-or-younger newbie pal. This is a box full of lovely stuff for new residents from ~silentsparrow~, enough outfit bits to keep a newbie (or oldbie like me) playing for hours. There are bits suitable for boys, too (pants and a shirt and shrug bits), and many bits for girls. I've mixed them in with a brand new skin from Ugly Duck -- a unisex-makeup skin named Kala which I will write a better review of at some point -- and new hair from Calico Ingmann Creations. I kind of adore this hair. It looks remarkably like my real life hair, only more copper.

Milla Michinaga


Miss Milla came out with some new releases from her store today, a sexy mesh tank top. I saw the releases and thought about photographing myself in them, but honestly I missed seeing Milla's face out in the blogosphere. Here she is in her own creation, and I think she totally embodies the elegance of her shop. What a lovely, hard-working person! (SLURL to MichaMi)

Me and Lucius and Gianni


A few days ago I saw that Mocha had some kind of free item. I teleported to what I THOUGHT was the Mocha main store…and encountered a cute little summer festival instead. There are Gatcha machines…oh so addictive. Jackal and I took a picture in our Gatcha animal hair over here. Ringing the little gatcha area are shops. One of them, Euclid, had these pants - ! They were so neat that I called in a few likely suspects to buy 'em with me. (Also notable, my high-lacing sneakers from another shop in this ring, Amaama.)

Jameson Kipling & Creamy Cooljoke


I ran into Creamy and Jameson today while wandering around the grid. Creamy looked cute, and Jameson looked dapper, and soon we were all in my photo globe discussing how parts of America relate to various body parts. (The word 'taint' was used once or twice.) It was lovely to see Creamy, and I reminded her that this blog is her fault and Hethr's for encouraging me. NOW SEE WHAT YOU'VE DONE. Also, I want Jameson's AO and Creamy's Vooner satchel.

Wicked game

tat_003


Faina and Bliss opened up a tattoo parlor named La Malvada Mujer, or The Wicked Women. Suits those two troublemakers to a T, and I'm incredibly proud to sport their cabalistic designs on my skin. Faina is an awesome artist to begin with, and her taste is dark and quirky and cool.

Funny story about this tattoo… Last week I had a long conversation with one of my coworkers about how he'd like a tattoo of Jesus on his upper arm, just like a certain famous boxer. "Unique and interesting," I thought. And now, in a fit of Jungian synchronicity, I've got one too. I guess mystical symbols are synchronous like that.

(Go visit La Malvada Mujer)

Let the Bible Belt come and save my soul

With Miss Strawberry Singh


Little ditty about Jack and Diane,
Two American kids growing up in the heartland.
Jackie's gonna be a football star,
Diane's a debutante in the backseat of Jackie's car.

Jackie sits back reflects his thoughts for a moment
Scratches his head and does his best James Dean.
Well you know, Diane, we oughtta run for the city
Diane says, baby you ain't missing a thing.

With Lucius


Once upon a time Lucius said something pretty wise. "Style doesn't depend upon money," he said. It's true, and as always the bastard looks effortlessly elegant just standing there in his t-shirt and rolled-up pants. Acha is in new hair and a new skin today. TekuTeku put out their Summer line, which means that I went and bought every damned thing on their 'new' table earlier. I love the few men's hairs (EkoEko) that were out, including this one, Sugar in Cream color. I'm also in a new skin from Illninia, the Jude in light tone. I think that the combination of hair and skin makes me look like a scruffy hippie, which is great -- that's definitely my boy avatar's style. (SLURL to TekuTeku) (SLURL to Illninia)

There's a hole in my bucket, dear Liza dear Liza...

Further Monday


Today I was self-absorbed until Further pointed out that, f***, there are better things to worry about. Thank you, Further.

*

There was a time when my world
was filled with darkness
And I stopped dreaming, now
I'm supposed to fill it up with something.

There is a hole and I tried to fill up with money,
But it gets bigger till your horse is always running.
In your eyes I see the eyes of somebody
That could be strong.

Tell me if I'm wrong.
And now I'm pulling your disguise up
Are you free or are you tied up?

I change shapes just to hide in this place
but I'm still, I'm still an animal
Nobody knows it but me when I slip
I'm still an animal

-- Miike Snow, Animal

Underneath the crooked apple trees

rain01


I had the good fortune to encounter so many cute things today! For example, this babydoll-sailor outfit from Honey+Kitty. It comes in a few dark colors and a few light ones, and has long and short sleeve options. It goes so well with this new umbrella from !WorN?, inspired by hyasynth's strawberry tattoo set. The umbrella has a wrought iron handle and a gorgeous green canopy and emits happiness in the form of strawberries and daisies. Please do go see it, and the strawberry tattoo from ~silentsparrow~ too. (SLURL to !WorN?)

Makenzie Irling


Waaaay too hungover and sleepy to write much intelligent here. Makenzie was kind enough to pose for me today. I gave her the theme, "tomboy -- neko without the ears and tail." She did a lovely job of interpreting the theme, especially in that great baggy shirt from Ninikoboy (I love that shop). Oh, I tried to look for lyrics about tomboys, and damn the Beach Boys song "Hey Little Tomboy" is creepy.
