I will never drink chocolate martinis again


I am not a very girly girl (unlike my daughter), but a lot of my talented friends design gorgeous dresses that would suit the most finicky of prom princesses. This dress in particular, with its lace and beading and floral adornments, makes me want to take my avatar to the Bellagio for a long night of high-stakes gambling. It's the new Grace dress from Rebel Hope, and this lady never strikes a wrong note with her ensembles. The jewelry is from her partner RH Engel, and suits the 1930s Maxi line of the dress. Please also check out Fade Lei's new skins from Ugly Duck -- she's redone a few older lines to add a certain element of glow. Interesting, right?

Caught in a riot, out in a storm


My day was super-busy and I'm beat. But my avatar's figure looks Mad Men-esque in this corset, and I love the tie. Go buy 'em both at Schadenfreude. (The bright pink color scheme is in honor of my little daughter's birthday.)

A kimono in a gazebo

Cupid's Heart Hunt items...

I've been doing the Cupid's Heart Hunt, and it has some of my favorite Japanese shops in it. So far I love the skin from Mother Goose's, this kimono from Tomoto, and the little cookie and balloons from Love Soul. I also have boxes I haven't unpacked yet from Mocha. Happiness! Look for little hearts in each participating store.

A stick, a stone, it's the end of the road

Barbie in the window...

Fade Lei of Ugly Duck completely redid her Lai line of skins. I love those skins because the skin tone is so deep and rich, and the breasts are awesomely realistic, but more about those skins tomorrow. Today I'm also wearing this Coppelia gown from Evie's Closet. Acha's tip for putting on an enormous gown: Don't overdo it with accessories, but never let the gown wear you. I like using unexpected hair, or tattooed arm sleeves, or unique eyes, or a beautiful skin. The necklace is also brand new from Elemental -- a pretty golden twist around red stones.

That camera is HEAVY

"Miss Vo! Look this way!"

I thought about using these photos for the Lula Flickr Contest, but I'm not quite satisfied yet. Therefore, you get to see some pretty pictures of Vo Pralou getting stalked by my VHS camera. The contest is to take interesting photos on the Lula sim in stuff from the designers there. If you'd like to find out more about the Flickr Contest, go read about it here!


Vo: Lamb hair, Mon Tissu clothings, Tres Blah skin.
Acha: Lamb hair, Nylon Outfitter glasses, shirt & video camera, Mon Tissu jeans, Ugly Duck skin.

I see cyber people

I haz glasses

Hunain made neato futuristic glasses thingies. They fit around one ear with a great sound-muffling headpiece, which is good because your other ear is still hearing ambient noise. :D … Just teasing, Hunain! You obviously can't see it in a still photo, but the eyepiece has a scrolling Matrixy animation, and the earpiece pulses with energy. It's color-scripted for your pleasure. (Go look at it here!)

***Skin: Den-Dou golden girl - gatcha skin
