Now with Mesh


Question to everyone: What's your favorite light setting with shadows?

So I have the latest MacBook Pro, and I finally downloaded the Mesh grid. Lo and behold, shadows worked. I just checked my system profile, and noticed that my machine has the NVIDIA GeForce 320M graphics card and not the ATI, which is probably why it worked. I'm also wearing Halloween cuteness, this dress from Honey Kitty, and this great yellow trick-or-treat bag from Lycee. It comes with a pose! (SLURL to Lycee) (SLURL to Honey Kitty)

Put another dime in the Gatcha machine baby

Gatcha fest with Fade

Fade Lei and I went to the Albero Gatcha Fest, trying for the rare Pig Shop underpants. By the time I'd left Fade had spent enough for the fat pack and was shaking her fist. :D

Keeping all the pumpkins in the air

Gesticulate pumpkins

This is totally how I feel at Halloween time in Second Life -- gotta make sure all the pumpkins are juggled! The pose and prop are a lucky chair item from Gesticulate, and the outfit credits are over here at Free*Style. (SLURL to Gesticulate)

Rust and corsets

Got your costume ready?

I love my outfit so very much. I'm not sure whether it's the SLink hair that tickles me most (it's the spitting image of my real life hair right now, cept mine is black), or the amazing new Nephilengys posture collar and spiderweb bodysuit set from Schadenfreude, or perhaps the beautiful little worn-out tophat from EllaBella, or not least the pumpkiny outfit from Silentsparrow… but I adore this entire Octobery outfit far too much. Also note the cracked tattoo from Frick above my Ugly Duck skin -- how wonderfully versatile -- and the punk British flag collar from Violet Voltaire. Okay, done talking about the outfit, off to the Albero Gatcha fest!

Dark and bright

Tribally autumn!

Beautiful jewelry for beautiful weather. The necklace is new by Magpie, the Fall Scarab necklace. I love the colors and the whimsical touch of Egyptian. The Autumn Colored Tiara is by Star Kindler Designs, a bright spot of rust and gold in my mess of dark hair. (SLURL to Magpie) (SLURL to Star Kindler Designs)

I'm totally barefoot

How many licks?

You know, it's been … a long effing time that I've done this in Second Life. Years, eh? I mostly operate in a vaccuum, with only one or two people who give me feedback (like my kindly partner Jackal), and I get these urges to quit… I start to think things like, wouldn't it be nice to start a real life music blog and do something a little more real life for a change? But today I got a really nice message:

[16:24] Frick Finkler: (Saved Sun Oct 17 22:43:31 2010) Hi! This is probably obnoxious because I'd imagine you get IMs of this sort all the time [almost never actually -a], but I wanted to let you know how much I enjoy your blog. I've been following it for a couple years now ^^ thanks for being an inspiration.

I am? Thank you, ma'am. I'm so glad to hear it. Messages like this help me keep thinking it's relevant.

I'm wearing the new Lepidoptera shirt by Ingenue -- I love the soft chiffon of the sleeves and the deep scoop of the neck. Also, new hair from The Strand called Harriet, with a texture-changing hat. The scarf is a group gift from Kue (which has such cute things right now!), and the skin is the beautiful Yasmin remake from Ugly Duck. Oh and beware, Schadenfreude has out its treat basket -- be prepared for a lot of clicking!

***Eyes: Mutsu star eyes in yellow
***Skin: Ugly Duck Yasmin in fine with C-cup boobies.
***Scarf: [Kue!] group gift, mini laced pumpkin scarf
***Skirt: Ingenue Secretary skirt in ebon
***Shirt: Ingenue Lepidoptera Blouse in Ebon
***Hair: The Strand Harriet / charred black
***Pose: by Gesticulate

A romance of one

Romance of one.

Earlier today, Berry challenged us to think about romance. I thought about it, and came up with the word "longing." I think that romance is most strongly felt all by yourself, in the longing for a magical spiritual and physical high from another person. I also took a cue from Berry's big poofy dress and wore my own, this amazing concoction in orange from Rebel Hope. Here's a closer look at the pretty necklace that comes with the set.
