There's a starcat meowing in the sky

C88 preview (1)

Sometimes I feel like I’m losing my way in the blogosphere. Where am I? What am I doing here, trying to post once-a-day in this Achariya.net thing? AND THEN one of my friends goes and makes something like this kitty space helmet, and I remember. Right, I’m here to celebrate creativity — the whacky, awesome, wtfery that makes Second Life so interesting. The outfit and shoes are by fashionably Dead, and I just love the way the texture makes my body look so squishable. All this can be yours at Collabor88. (*Waves to katat0nik* thanks for reading this crap that I write!)

I had anxiety dreams about my child’s birthday party all night long. It's tomorrow, and today is the huge housecleaning day. I’m ducking into SL for a moment to put off the inevitable slew of cleaning. Twenty-one little kids. In my house. WHY DID I DO THIS. Anyway, I envy my avatar’s day. She’s going to poke through her preview copies from C88 for a few leisurely hours and try everything on. Then she’ll undoubtedly take a nap. Spoiled brat!

I hate to love you, Men's Dept.

Different pictures (1)

I am a total sucker for the Men's Department. In fact, whenever a new one opens, I reflexively clutch my pixel b***s and hope it doesn't suck everything out of my wallet. Usually it does, though. Here most of my outfit (skin to hair to clothes) is from the Men's Department, with no (concern) given. Happy Friday, I feel like we all earned it this week.

Mingle with me

Shells and starfish from Allegory

This morning I got a lovely folder of goods from Schadenfreude, containing necklaces and bracelets for a thing called Mingle. What the heck is Mingle, I thought to myself. I threw on some things from my Collabor88 folder (shut up, yes, I'm still working through all my purchases) and took a photo, dredging my memory for anything about Mingle.

Oh right! I thought. They were the people that did the neat Trick-or-Treat village, where you went to each house's door and got treats! Allegory's been doing stuff for Mingle for a while now, and apparently they're celebrating Valentine's Day this fortnight.

From the destination guide entry: Are you ready to Mingle? Holiday Appreciation Association presents their newest event: Mingle, an interactive hud-based experience to explore, meet, and greet. Prizes will be generously offered by some of the most beloved brands on the grid. The best prize of all will be the friendships you're bound to make. Date auctions, transferable item gift shop, and more await anyone ready to Mingle. Runs from February 1st through the 28th, hurry!

Teal blood

A new dress from Blue Blood

I’m *still* digging the MIA14 skin series, and just noticed that she’s got fantasy skins. Drow!! This is my jam! The skin goes really well with this new outfit from Blue Blood. It’s nice to follow the evolution of this shop over the years, and mesh works really well with Ghanima’s creative style. Nice texturing, Ghani! The skirt and shirt fit together so seamlessly that it looks like dress!

Hair: Wasabi Pills Valerie mesh hair in Ash

MiaSnow's new shop is open!

(1) New MIA14 (Miasnow) Skins!!

MiaSnow told me tonight that her new store is open. This made me incredibly happy, especially because she’s releasing a set of skins with it. They are the EMBER skins, and range from a healthy dark to a healthy pure white. I’ll probably show the whole line of them eventually, but I’ve chosen two to style up today. She’s made these skins with all necessary appliers for hands, feet, azz, boobs, whatever. The light one is “superpale” shade, and I’m showing it with MiaSnow’s new line of colorful brows, lipgloss, and tattoo lashes. The dark one is the “exotic” shade, and I’m showing it with her great blush, lashes, and a more understated brow. GAH I love her skins. My outfits are a combination of fashionably Dead, FLF, and Kustom9. But seriously, go check out MiaSnow’s new store over here!

Valentine's furniture from CIRCA

Valentine's set from CIRCA (1)

Am I a hearts-and-romance type of girl? SURE, why not. I do love the seasonal sets from CIRCA, and this living room set really tickled me. It has hearts everywhere, and candles, and fluffiness. I can't imagine what Jackal would think. "Needs more black," she'd probably grumble cutely (I snuck her picture into one of these screencaps). At any rate, even if in real life I'm going to basically ignore Valentine's Day in favor of my child's birthday, it feels like spoiling myself to be able to put up a whole roomful of holiday furnishings JUST CAUSE. And oops, my avatar's still in yesterday's clothes.
