Skinned

Hallelujah, a new fD skin!

I survived a bout of sickness yesterday -- it's my old malaise, so I know how to deal with it. It has left me a bit weak today, so I was very happy to see that fashionably Dead has FOUR beautiful new skins out for Skin Fair. I have not yet gone to Skin Fair, so this is my first (and only?) post concerning it. Look at that tired face, those ombre brows, that ridiculous makeup. I love the sheen on the skin too (although I think I need to adjust my Slink hand color to account for it). It just makes me happy!

Arcadian rhythms

Bunneh hat and chibi wings

All this month, my husband's been posting different covers of the awesome Brazillian song Waters of March. I love this song, it's got such a realistic and varied view of the month. The Portuguese lyrics are all about the coming of winter, and the English ones are all about the coming of spring. I'm feeling spring-like today in this outfit and bunneh hat, so here, have some lyrics:

A float, a drift, a flight, a wing
A hawk, a quail, the promise of spring
And the river bank talks of the waters of March
It's the promise of life, it's the joy in your heart


Listen here.

Cuddle me

Bear suit

My kid and I are watching the odd Scooby Doo reboot. It’s very Cthonic, in an excellent way. At the same time, I kind of miss the unintentional awesome cheez of the old show; if it’s intentional, it just isn’t the same. Still, Mayan temples, ancient conspiracies, Scooby Gangs formed by dark magics over all of space and time… not bad. Better than Teen Wolf.

Here I am wearing an outfit by Milk Motion for Arcade. I feel so cuddly I think I’ll take myself straight to my plushie-piled SL bed.

It's 5 AM, and you are listening to Los Angeles

Clawtooth updo!

At around 5 AM ET, I had a funny conversation with Evangelical. "So I managed to TP to Arcade and got some stuff. Do you want my dupes?" "Sure," she said, and I spent the next five minutes throwing things her way. I admit it was an odd bunch of stuff, horns and furniture and bowls of eggs and other random items of household ornamenture. "This is a lot of ... varied things," Evangelical said, surveying the mess. I admitted that it's true, I am a sucker for horns...and decor. But maybe we'll get to see Miss Evangelical in horns in the next week? That'll be lovely!

So yeah, my horns today are new from Arcade, and remind me of two tines of a jester's cap. I picked them because they really suited this fabulous updo that Clawtooth made for C88's reset. If my RL hair were long enough, that's how I'd have it all the time! My outfit is made up of vaguely old stuff, but I don't care because it's from some favorite designers of mine. And so, I still can't believe it's only Wednesday.

Ablaze

Vivid (2)

About this. Sometimes I like to challenge myself with colors. Today, I thought I'd dress to match this new ring from CIRCA, and looked for colors that were just as bright. Plastik has out a set of new tank tops, so I found one that seemed to suit it. Then I had an issue, because my inventory is so scary that I couldn't find a plain skirt. Therefore you get me in my underpants and heels, one step away from being dressed. Later today my avatar will put on a modest skirt and head out to the Dark Elf library to find some Russian literature for a colorful night in.

It 88'd me

C88 reset (1)

So, it’s here, another round of Collabor88. I love that Bubbles and Toast both made updos — very different, very cute. Yesterday I wore the Clawtooth one and walked around Slink West. Today I donned the fashionably Dead one and love it just as much, especially the whispy Rode Hard and Put Up Wet look of it. It reminds me of the movie Working Girl, after Melanie Griffith cuts off her 80s pouffe. :D OK it totally doesn’t, but the analogy was fun anyway. …Now I gotta get that movie out again…

My dress is Katat0nik's outfit for the reset, and maybe THAT is why I was thinking about the movie Working Girl! It's definitely moving in a different direction for Miss Kat, very streamlined and grown-up without losing any playfulness. See it all at Collabor88, yep!
