A reason to go to XStreet...

slashy01


The heat is rolling over us like a thick blanket, but the rain lurks in the high clouds, washing down to cleanse it all away. Tomorrow I have my first real-life photography gig, some photos of fashion for a friend's blog. I've never done this before but I'm excited. I wonder how the rules of SL fashion photography translate to RL? Good lighting, backgrounds that don't detract from the clothing, some kind of mood to the composition… Speaking of, today I'm wearing an XStreet only item from ~silentsparrow~, the Geist Batty suit. The suit is white and therefore tintable, so I've put a bit of silver into it, but it's supremely flexible! (Get the suit here on XStreet.

Put another dime in the Gatcha machine baby

gatcha_001


There is a Gatcha festival again, damn that Albero. I love this festival, and end up filling my *cough*62k inventory with even more stuff. I need it all, you see. Every single kitty-faced boombox, pair of boots, cute glasses, bath supplies, necklaces, plushies, hovering frogs, things that I can't even describe, and …. You get the idea. SLURL to the Gatcha Festival.

I'm also wearing an adorable Victorian swimming costume by Draconic Kiss. I remember picking up a free one a million years ago in Caledon Cay, and have always wanted an updated version for my inner Gothic Loli. (SLURL to Draconic Kiss)

Jilted at the alter

jilted_004


I'm in a new skin by Plastik today, the Fingerprint skin in Story skintone. There are in fact smeared fingerprints all over the skin, and I love the effect. It's a clever idea for makeup, and I think it looks GREAT with this Rebel Hope wedding dress.

Boom

commercials_001


I'm having a quiet Fourth so far, blogging in-between cleaning house and doing errands with the child. I feel the summer doldroms pretty fiercely, and I'm questioning my SL raison d'etre this week. Whenever I lose someone from my SLife I pause and think about why I play this game. I think ultimately it's a place that spawns creativity -- a land where we can be God-like creatures and create and destroy with an easy sense of detachment, because none of it impacts us physically. Much. I remember watching Aisuru Reiko destroying a house, sitting on a part of it and getting rocketted high, high into the air, falling somewhere… Maybe it's time for a paradigm change for me too, blow it all up and redefine the game again.

Ezura has a new dress out, a limited edition one. It's very pretty and very big. (SLURL to Ezura.)

Ezura came out with her first boy items a little while ago -- these cool "basic shirts". I dig the way she styled them, relaxed yet dressy. Happy 4th of July, USA people -- All politics aside, I still think we CAN, it'll just take some actual work. In honor of the day, will.i.am and Barack Obama.
