A trip to the temple on New Year's Eve

Much love to you all.

My chill New Year's Eve

Gott nytt år!

What am I going to do this New Year's Eve? My avatar kind of reflects my life choice this year. I'm going to be as relaxed as possible, and probably share a glass of cider with my family while watching a movie. It's going to be a quiet New Year in part because we've had such a crazy time leading up to this, and in part because 2013 beat me down with no remorse at all. I will whimper out the old year and sleep in the new. I hope you guys all party hard for me!

Let's all look pretty and dance

Rebel Hope Lola (1)

Today came, and it was that "one day too many" moment of Christmas week with the family. Know what I mean? I hurt everywhere, inside and out, from the strain of being with the people who know and love me most. Why the hell is that?! Is it because we're all flawed, and the people who love us most get to see all of it? It's hard on the ego, for sure.

So I put on a pretty dress and pretty hair and pretty jewelry and felt much better. Die a thousand deaths, 2013! I am so ready for next year.

FLF in gold

FLF in gold (2)


What a fun FLF today. I like it when colors challenge me to play with them, and I admit that I especially love gold. Allegory's mustard plaid vest made me go reaching for all the gold in my inbox, mitigated by a bit of beige. I broke the rule of blogging new things by finding this lovely system layer sweater and pants combination from MichaMi. She no longer has an in-world store, but her things are still on Marketplace. Happy FLF!

...And on to the New Year

New Year's face (1)

I did it! Clicked enough times on the (gift!) Christmas stocking at Schadenfreude that I got this plushie, ~silentsparrow's~ Rosa Deer-ee. Yay Christmas gift! (And paging Jackal Ennui, who has wandered far this warm season -- I have a Christmas box for you, but I didn't want it lost in IM caps!)

Gothmas by Gaslight is still going on, and I'm wearing jewelry and a few outfit bits from it on my avatars -- both outfits were planned around those two neat skirts by Pale Empress. (And uh both avatars are totally me, inexpertly composited together.) Check out the little skeletal hands on my earrings, too!

I think I'm going to wear silver and blue for the rest of the year, just to see in 2014 properly. So, what are you wearing for New Year? Got plans? :D

One last gasp of Christmas

Christmas day

I think my relatives stole my words today, but I have a few notable things to point out. First, the Schadenfreude Christmas stocking is out, and it probably has an awesome reindeer plushie in it (I haven't gotten it yet, but the night is not over). The stocking is an annual tradition, and it wouldn't feel like Christmas without it. I'm wearing these awesome antlers from the stocking, as well as a new Rebel Hope dress. Below is my house during the last gasp of Christmas, including a neat new wall divider from ISD and a wall-hanging fortune thingie from Lilith's Den, both for Horror Haute.

Oh right: Happy holidays, friends! I hope solstice treated you all very well. :D

Meditation room

Stuff and things (2)

I decided that since Gidge and Cajsa have been showing off their lovely Christmas decor, I would too. I'm still rocking my NEVA Captain House from a few C88's ago. I've taken down a lot of the walls because I like open floorplans, and the result has kept me feeling comfortable even though everything inside changes according to whim.

I recently obtained a lot of things from the Paper Moon gacha -- these gorgeous studded wall stars. They look industrial enough to suit my dwelling, and they'll do for my very Buddhist Christmas. The rest of the little room is a combination of office and meditation space. Did you know that I'm Buddhist? Real-life me, that is. I'm half Thai, so I'm kind of Buddhist by default. One of my favorite things from my mother's house is her Buddha room. In Thai houses, half of one room is usually devoted to collected statues of Buddha, alongside little containers to put incense and bowls for offerings. In SL, I try to spend a little time whenever I log in meditating. I find it keeps me grounded.

Also in this room is the well-used desk where I sit to write out every blog post by pencil. It's by Arcana for this round of GENRE, and I thought the spare yet antique style also suited the house. I do love Christmas -- in Thailand, we don't celebrate the birth of Christ part of it so much as the spirit of giving and loving family, and because of this, THANKS for lending us such a nice holiday! If you're curious, the rest of my house decorations are over here.

Hair for her (and him?)


Pretty dress from Schadenfreude

Did you miss me?! I was off in Real Life land, playing "mother of the flower girl" at a family wedding. As nice as it was, being at the wedding reminded me of all the reasons why I eloped. Did my adorable cousin seriously pay for a rose corsage that someone's gonna wear for all of three hours?! Anyway, different strokes.

I returned to a lot of lovely new things, not least of which was a gorgeous outfit from Schadenfreude, skin from Pink Fuel, and new hair from Calico Ingmann. The hair was so neat that my boy avatar insisted on trying it on. "What the hell," my husband said when he walked by. "No." Despite the opinion of Mr. Macho, my boy avatar never minds exhibiting his femme side. And look, a wonderful little Christmas plushie from ~silentsparrow~ too!

Boy in blue


Hello! Today I took a break from all the Gothmas and GENRE items and went to Kustom9. (Dear Kustom9: I totally submitted a blogger ap and I think you turned me down, but look, I adore your items anyway!) This hat is especially nice, and I'm sure you've seen the version with "EXPLICIT" written across the front of it. I was in the mood for bright-ass blue, and it cheered me up entirely. (Acha, why is the photo resolution for these so poor today? Ah sorry, I took these pictures at 5 AM on my Mac, which can really only handle 3000px, while my family lay peacefully sleeping. I didn't wanna fire up the PC and wake up my husband...) Anyway. Kustom9, man.

Him, her, and weasels

hya and me (2)

This morning in the car driving to work, my husband and I put on songs from musicals and sang our heads off. The first was Fame, and the second was Footloose. It felt like cheesy good fun, a total antidote to the enormous pressure of the holidays. EVERYBODY CUT LOOSE! Also fun was last night, when I dragged this pretty creator into my skybox, totally derailing her from finishing her FLF textures. "hya, come pose with meeee!" I love her outfit here, and how she's managed to make a perfect ombre with browns and blues. She's always my color inspiration.

My jacket and jewelry come from Gothmas by Gaslight. I was so happy to find things for my boy avvie! The jacket is very nicely done. I added some ~silentsparrow~ prim cuffs to give it a slightly more Victorian feel. Also, weasels 4eva. (Visit Gothmas by Gaslight, if you like!)

Skybox glam

Hidden gargoyle (2)

I love how Rebel Hope's dresses make me feel so amazingly glamorous, even if I'm just standing around in my skybox. I love the Vegasness of these two dresses, and kind of wish my avatar had some kind of high-profile party to attend, full of the movers and shakers of the gambling world. She'd go with ALL her bling on, dye her hair extra-blond, and pretend to be a gold digger. (Her secret backstory is that she's actually an heiress who doesn't need the man for cash, but enjoys seeing them look confused when she foots the hotel room bill.)

My bling today comes from Gothmas by Gaslight. Have you been yet?

Float

Some things we never forget (2)

I have such a strange life right now. It's the holidays, and because of it, there's this harmonic convergence of all parts of my life into one greater weird whole. All the family from both sides are coming here, there's a huge wedding, and on top of that there's The Hobbit. I've alternated between frantic texts with my mom to prepare for the family onslaught, and texts with friends asking me about various bits of The Hobbit. (Yes, I'm the local expert.)

In Second Life, there's also GENRE and C88 and Arcade and Gothmas by Gaslight and the bijillion other stuff advertised on Seraphim. MY LORD. It's all overwhelming and wonderful, right? On the other hand, I can't help longing for a nice slow week at the height of summer when everyone's playing outside.

Speaking of playing outside, my avatar put on this outfit from Uncertain Smile for GENRE and clomped around Gothmas by Gaslight earlier today. It opens up tomorrow, and I hope everyone enjoys the pretty and cheeky build. PLEASE ALSO NOTE MY WONDERFUL TIGHTS from Frick! They're selling for mere pennies at her store.

But seriously, my fluffy hat.

(Sur)real Life

And a wee little tree

Last night I did the most surreal thing: I went to a small town in Florida that blows fake snow on people. I stood there as the kids raised their little faces to the industrial-strength soap bubbles and played in it, pretending it was snow. On the ground at our feet were piles of foamy slush. Christmas music played, and a little golf-cart train drove around the town square. It was very festive and seasonal and SURREAL AS ALL HECK, especially cause it was warm enough for shorts.

Sometimes life is a lot more like SL than we give it credit for. Sometimes, it's weirder… But speaking of lovely things, I'm enamored with my Spyralle jacket for GENRE*, so much that I played with two different stylings for it. The lovely necklace from Lassitude & Ennui has a bat on it, and it'll be out shortly for Gothmas in Gaslight. The tree from noctis too! It's my second tree of the season in SL, and it's appropriately dark and eerie for Gothmas. Both of these events open shortly.

* Someone please update the GENRE blog, it's hanging out at November's event!

Walking in an animal-laden wonderland

Sway (3)

Hello! I've recovered from my bout of drunken elven present-bagging in a fur catsuit, and thought I'd share a snowy sim that I've been wandering lately. Swayland has an advent calendar each year, and this year I've been doing it faithfully. I adore Sway's items, and Zacca and Nonino have been some of my favorite furniture and housemakers in SL since forever, so I always look forward gleefully to everything they give us. The sim is full of cute moments, including a very "It's a small world" skating rink with animatronic bears, and animals everywhere. It's well worth a visit, Advent or not!

Le Petite Morte outfit for GENRE

Hello! Today I am wearing a Victorian-inspired outfit set from Le Petite Morte, created for the upcoming round of GENRE. I haven't put on a Victorian dress since I was kicked out of Caledon, but I really liked how well the fabric holds its shape even when I move. I remember that in the old days it was imperative to wear nice stockings because my legs would invariably emerge into the light, giving all the Caledonian gents a free show. Not so anymore! In fact, I'm not wearing a stitch of anything beneath this pretty frock, NOT EVEN SHOES. You'll be able to get this skirt and top when GENRE opens.

Because I was wearing such an outfit, I went back to the Gothmas by Gaslight sim and took a few more photos. I'm excited! The Christmas decorations are up, and the whole town has that slightly decrepid, Dickensian Christmas smoulder. It'll open on the 15th!

GENRE's December round and Schadenfreude new shoes


Allegory made lovely new shoes!

Ellantha doesn't trust me with her jewelry because I invariably f*ck it up. Case in point, in the above photo, half the prims for that lovely Enfant Terrible necklace are totally eaten up by my viewer. *sob*! I noticed that this morning and took the below photo so that you can see how cute the necklace really is. I'm blogging two things for the next round of GENRE today -- the necklace and that nifty corset from Kastle Rock Couture. I have to say, I love events for introducing me to new-to-me designers, and these two are truly neat! More information about the next round of GENRE will eventually be posted on the blog.

But okay, all blogger fail aside, LOOK AT ALLEGORY'S NEW SHOES! The fatpack is infinitely customizable (okay finitely, but with tons of options), and I adore the color combinations that I can make. They are at her elephant.

It's beginning to look a lot like a post-apocalyptic Christmas

I decided against text on this photo!

I decorated my house for Christmas, using a mix of old and new stuff. My favorite group gift is this adorable Rudolph picture and banners from ~silentsparrow~, so I put them front and center on my mantlepiece. I also dug out the Christmas Voubou from Schadenfreude to adorn some shelves. Most of the rest is from Arcade (a more detailed photo is below). I think some of my favorite Christmas items from Arcade are the Post Apocalyptic stuff. It suits Second life so perfectly with its Wastelands feel. After our land suffers flood and drought and the rough times come, I'm pretty sure we'll all be making these rough semblances of trees out of twisted metal from lost dreams. *cough* Anyway. I hope everyone has a lovely second week of Advent!

I decorated!

Winterizing Nouveau

Nouveau in Winter (1)

The other day, Allegory mentioned that it was time to winterize the sim. I don't know if many of you have poked around Nouveau, but Jackal has made a corner of it into her cobbler's workshop. Like most creators, she actually lives up on a plain white platform, but it's kind of fun to pretend that in her spare time she cures leather and carves wooden soles. I winterized a little around the workshop. Of course we needed a Christmas tree, so I snuck over to Allegory's tree farm beneath the elephant with my handy chainsaw. (Allegory, you might find a few trees missing...) Go see our snow in Nouveau!

Time to steal a tree!

And this great reindeer

Katat0nik's lovely jumper dress

I have a sick kid in the house this weekend, which kind of delayed some Christmas plans. On the upside, I had plenty of time to play in Second Life, which means that I could put on and take off clothing and putter around my house to my heart's content. I put up my Christmas tree and changed my clothes a lot, all while entertaining a bored little one.

Do you remember back in the day when I took Twinnie posts with Mourna Biziou? Whenever I do two stylings of an outfit, it's in memory of those days. This one is the jumper dress from Katat0nik, so adorable and soft-looking, and this hair from Clawtooth. These new beautiful bootlets from Lassitude & Ennui were perfect for the outfits too. I just had a hit of coffee and realized that I'm still only half coherent, so I'll let the photos speak for me. Have a good Sunday!
