Dripping flowers from my hair


I really like the bustled "erotic" version of this new Ezura outfit, the Lolita Crown. The garters make my faun-girl feel powerful, as if she could slingshot small hamsters at you from between her. Uh. I think I'll stop there. Anyway. The hair is new too from Calico Ingmann creations, one of four new hairs at the shop. It's called Paige, and it comes in a version with a shoulder-attach ponytail, which is totally cool! Also, the flowers are color-changing. I've made them black, but there are a number of pretty colors for the less morbid. (SLURL to Ezura) (SLURL to CiC)

Not me: Ivey Deschanel with a super high arc

Ivey Deschanel
Ivey Deschanel of Sn@tch

I was so exhausted by life today that I couldn't even put on an outfit. In fact, when Ivey popped into my skybox she looked at me and said, "You're a little elf. Look at that hat." It's true, I had on an old winter hat-hair with a pom on it, and like a miscelaney of stuff that looked like crap. :D Anyway, aren't you glad I spared you that? Instead, I told Ivey to wear panties and as much crap as she could attach and still rez. She uttered the hilarious lines:

[16:59] Ivey Deschanel: you want blacks or flesh
[16:59] Ivey Deschanel: or just panties and tube?

Which I misread as "panties and lube." *cough* … And then:

[17:02] Ivey Deschanel: gotcha gimme a sex
[17:02] Ivey Deschanel: sec
[17:02] Ivey Deschanel: gahh I hate that typo

I LOVE YOU IVEY. I'll give you a sex any time. *smooch* She's also an excellent sport and has a very photogenic backside. :D Thanks for playing! (Here's the SLURL to Sn@tch.)

Has a nice sn@tch

Ribbons and bows


It took me a million years to get this outfit together, shoot it and post it tonight, partly because I've been watching endless Runaways videos on youtube. I was too young to catch them when they came out the first time. Either that or I was still listening to my stepdad's Bowie collection… I saw the crappy movie last night, but what impressed me most about it was the music. Hot damn, could they sing, and their songs were simply awesome. *cough* -- Ah, back to this shirt. It's a gorgeous 2011 redrawn edition of the ~silentsparrow~ ribbon top (I wore the original one the other day). Look at how cute the hand-drawn bow and collar details are! I love you, hya, even if you totally forgot about this shirt!

Go see the remastered release at ~silentsparrow~ !

***Arm warmers: ~silentsparrow~ knitty arm warmers
***Hat: ~silentsparrow~ (sea) strange bird hat
***Hair: Calico Ingmann Creations Tracy in light blood

Tee el dee ar


Yesterday evening, I had the pleasure of doing something I hadn't done in a long time: hang out with hyasynth while she did her thing and I did my thing, sometimes talking and sometimes in total silence... I spent two years in SL doing just this, fiddling with my inventory while hyasynth created. I'd usually work on two outfits; one for blogging, one for wearing after blogging. hya would do a million things - upload textures, answer notecards, manage her shop, respond to IMs. But our silence was always interesting and generative and occasionally punctuated by "You should tint that," and "ooh I like that texture."

More than many things, that feels like SL-home to me, and in a wash of nostalgia for the past, I came up with this outfit. I'm trying to Steampunk myself a little more when I'm off the blogging clock, and I hadn't meant to post this outfit at all today. It's really just for hanging around Steampunk sims. The outfit is almost entirely hya's stuff, with some additional Schadenfreude and Jackal's most awesome boots and Aikea's skin. I have to add that the present is awesome too. Jackal and I tend to get up off our arses and go do stuff (when our timezones intersect), and this is lovely in its own way. Okay, rambling time over. Enjoy your collective Mondays!

Other people's blogs


This post isn't about me. It's about two other talented people that you should go check out. The first is Fade Lei (who made the skin on Lillian, above). Fade started to blog her outfits, and let me tell you, her style is infectious and stealable. Go check out Fade Lei's blog here!

The second person is Lillian Shippe (above), who blogs skins and makes face paint. Her blog is here! The premise is that Lillian and Mako each put on a skin, and then talk about how different they look in the same skin. Shapes mean everything, right?

Both of these ladies have a unique, addictive style. Go check them out!

I need a new profile photo


52 weeks of color outfit. It's tough for me to go monochromatic, so I usually slip in a contrasting color somewhere. Who doesn't love teal and red? I learned this color combination back in the days when I made crochet hats and armwarmers for sale. A lot of people requested this color in crochet hat stripes, and I began to love it. It makes for a great scarf, too! Also, my child is getting better -- nary a cough yet tonight, and her temperature is even. Whew. -- Um. -- That skybox I'm standing in is another from Altitude, and I like how spare and light it is. It has happy John Lennon quotations all over it, but subtly. And my skin and ears are new from Plastik. Everything else is old yet awesome, including my vintage ribbon shirt that is probably deep in the retirement dungeon of ~silentsparrow~.


***Glasses: /artilleri/ nora glasses in teal
***Hat: Illusions Bard's Hat
***Hair: Clawtooth Play it again sam in red eye flight
***Little band of black below the shirt…: Random high-waisted pants item that I accidentally left on but it looked good with the outfit.
***Arm thingies: from Plastik Courtesan Black Sun outfit
***Shoes: Schadenfreude Riga Kicks
***Skirt: Katat0nik (teal) Sweetheart dress skirt & cape
***Shirt: Vintage ~silentsparrow~ teal ribbon top
***Tattoo: Wicked Tattoos: Famous Tattoo
***Skin: Plastik Ataciara in honeycomb
***Skybox: Altitude Lennon Skybox
