Gold and blue

Rebel Hope dress...


Rebel Hope created a gorgeous new frock -- clean lines with one perfect embellishment at the neck. I always like pretending that I'm some kind of fey princess in them. In this case, maybe I emerged from a pumpkin in honor of October. The poses are once again by Gesticulate!

Edit: Wahaha. Lately I've been posting pictures and then staring at them again, going, "Hmmm, are all the prims in place? Did I accidentally put my hand through a door?" Most of the time I've effed something up, honestly, and then siiiigh and retake my damned pictures. Today, luckily, I did ok on the first go-round. Ever have those moments?

Gesticulate is the new pose shop created by two awesome bloggers, Gidge and Elusyve. They have an excellent understanding of the needs of a blogger, and their poses are nicely three-dimensional, not oddly distorted from certain angles. I like the playfulness and motion of these poses too !

I'm still enjoying the heck out of the Seasons hunt. Might as well call it the Acha hunt, because it has so much awesome, pretty, orange. :D

Mmm, sweet potater pie

Elate dress, Lazy Places hair!


Someone give me the motivation to clean house! It's almost 10 AM, I've been awake since 7, and so far the only thing I've done is mess about in SL! Granted, this reminds me of a quotation from Dorothy Parker: “Take care of the luxuries and the necessities will take care of themselves.” ….Hm. I wish. At any rate, I'm wearing super-adorable hair from Lazy Places, the Zelda in this great Sweet Potaters color. (Go stare at the color names sometime, it'll make you giggle). I'm also in yet another perfect little frock by Elate!. (SLURL to Lazy Places) (SLURL to Elate!)

Yes, kid's music, because I have one

Redheads are trouble


These lyrics were in my head today. I think they typify a strain of something in my family -- I have it, and sadly my daughter inherrited it. It's that streak of monkey.

…The trouble I find is that the trouble finds me
It's a part of my mind, it begins with a dream
And a feeling I get when I look and I see
That this world is a puzzle, I'll find all of the pieces
And put it all together, and then I'll rearrange it
I'll follow it forever...
Always be as strange as it seems.

-- Jack Johnson, from the Curious George soundtrack.

My outfit is from /artilleri/, and I think I'm going to have trouble taking it off. The hair is from LoQ, and I adore the color and construction of this long over-the-shoulder ponytail. Also, the skin is new from Cupcakes, with a deeply layerd skintone and lush, natural-looking lips.

Three ponytails and some stubble

relaxed_001


I really love Maitreya's new Lila hair. I was also asked to dress Acha in something casual like exercise clothing the other day. I don't own much of it, but when I ran into these orange sweatpants from the booN clothing boutique, I snapped them right up. Um, it was a long long long long weekend of much busy, and now I'm going to go pass out.
