Hair Fair: SLink (post #0005)

SLink hair, Ingenue outfit.


My daughter is making those bored Saturday noises so I'm off the computer shortly, but this post pertains to a few things… Ingenue has a beautiful new outfit out named Falling Autumn, pants and a zippered sweater tube top with that unique cowl around the neck. I love the cheekiness of it, perfect for keeping the arms just a little goosebumpy in the Autumn chill. (Or so I imagine. None for us for months.) The hair is new at Hair Fair by SLink, and I adore the front-swept bangs. (SLURL to Ingenue) (SLURLs to the HAIR FAIR -- which opens at 10 AM SLT)

Hair Fair: Tekeli-li (post #00004)

Tekeli-li & Ezura & Plastik


And lo, it was Hair Fair. I am in the new LionHeart "The Sun in my Eyes" skin from Plastik, another fine sexy-fantasy outfit from Ezura, and hair -- oh right hair -- from Tekeli-li. I always love how they script their hair. It isn't "click and change me" -- it's a beautiful and byzantine incantation that usually begins with /33. There are four (five?) new offerings from Tekeli-li at the Hair Fair, and I love them all, especially the freebie that looks like Sokka's ponytail from Avatar: The Last Airbender. Much love to you all! (SLURL to Plastik), (SLURL to Ezura), (And a link to the Hair Fair website)

It totally suits the lolita look of the hair and dress. (Hair Fair starts tomorrow!)

Hair Fair: booN (Post #00002)

Why yes, it's still Hair Fair, and today I'm wearing this brilliant idea from booN. It's a shaved hair base on the tattoo layer, with vines carefully etched into the side o' my surfer boy head. I love the rest of the stuff from booN too, and as soon as my boy avatar stops being such a hair whore, I'll write about it. Are you ready for the Hair Fair? Starts tomorrow!

OMG NOT HAIR FAIR ( POST 00001 )

O HAI


My boy avatar says, hello and almost welcome to HAIR FAIR. I do so love Hair Fair (which runs from Sept. 4 - 19). I give so many props to the hard-working desigers who sit around carefully moving long strands of prims -- it would drive me nuts, which is why I buy hair instead of making it myself. I wanted to post in one of Curio Obscura's new hairs as my first post, but the boy avatar paused and beckoned me over to the Rock Candy folder. "Pst. Do this one." Not only is the hair unisex and cute in a J-rock bishounen kind of way, but it's tailored for my shape. That's right, Acha's shape is a modified version of a Rock Candy shape, which is why the hair suits it so well. Thanks to Miss Lillian for the idea! (Are you ready for hair fair?)

It is in my face

Miss Allegory
Miss Allegory Malaprop


See that pretty woman? I ran into her on my way to Schadenfreude to pick up the new wonderful aligator corset she's made, and the new group gift. Alle is wearing the gift, those two awesome spiral horn earrings. They have a color hud, of course, but the green matches the new corset perfectly. (SLURL to Schadenfreude for the swag!)

Allegory also teased me about the flowers in her hair. "This is by Melatonin. It isn't out yet, and when it is, it'll be for something special." Damn. I love and hate mysteries!

Impeccable logic, I wish I were Vulcan

Snapshot_005


I wanted an outfit that suited this amazing new Amaterasu skin from Pink Fuel -- something futuristic yet tribal, as if Geiger and Ghost in the Shell had a baby. I had to go to Bare Rose for that, of course, and I found just what I was looking for. Amaterasu is the Japanese sun goddess, and these are her eyes, really… I suspect that my cute futuristic combat doll avatar here thought it would frighten the enemy. (Oh and that hair… it's a teaser, the first of the Hair Fair review hairs, this one from Rock Candy. :o !! HAIR FAIR COMING SOON! ) (SLURL to Pink Fuel)

***Hair: *RC* Happy Hair for HAIR FAIR (black)

The best season ever is here

hyasynth's group gift is awesome.


Today I am in ~silentsparrow~ new V.I.P. group gift, O.M.G.! It's copper renditions of two of my favorite recent outfits of hya's, the Severin and Severine suit/suite. I've mixed the two ensembles liberally here, and I just love the layer upon layer of pretty, deep textures and glowing fabrics. Copper against dark, hya knows how to make a girl look all dapper! This outfit reminds me happily that next month is my favorite month of the whole damned year. Only 30 days until OCTOBER! Thank you for the gift, hya!

(SLURL to ~silentsparrow~ to join the V.I.P. group for a small fee & snag the gift!)

I heart my MBP battery life

Back in time 02


I heard tell that there's some sort of "back in time" blogger challenge. Awesome, I'm going to take this opportunity to write about designers that I miss… I miss ~silentsparrow~, of course, but I'm happy that hya has other stuff going on this summer. I'll be writing about her outfits from last year tomorrow. But today, I found that I really miss Momo. I adore the colors and cute-but-sexy shapes from this designer. So retro-80s! So kawaii! She hasn't made stuff since last year sometime, and I hope she's doing well. Despite that, her older stuff is well worth a trip to her store. Here, I'm in a teensy little Momo cute-skull mini and a cardigan… And the rest of my outfit is from a year ago too, including the boots of course, which are ancient but incredible work by my dear Ms. Ennui.

While my child puts sticky fingers all over my iPod

Miss Lillian Shippe and Miss Apatia Hammerer, Photo c. 2010 by Ms. Shippe


An hour ago I posted on plurk that I was feeling too tired to blog. Sunday is my mid-workweek-day, and I've already taught and skateboarded with my daughter. "Someone else blog for me," I whined.

I'm so lucky that Apatia and Lillian stepped up to the plate. Their style is really pure Starlust (but of course, considering). I always think of antlers and anachronisms when I think of Starlust style. Off-kilter makeups, interesting avvies, a vague 1970s-smoking-den feel. I asked them to describe the photograph.

Lillian said this:

"I have no idea how to describe what is going on here....we are fancy ladies...with a fancy horse. And guns."
