Bouncy bouncy

Bright bunnies

I stumbled across Katat0nik’s Ozimals dress in my objects folder today, and fingersnapped — darn, late for Easter! I usually keep pretty orderly files of blogging items (by month and event), but this month, so much was going on that my inventory looks like the day after Christmas. Anyway, I’m glad to wear this dress no matter what the season — the print is so cheerful and spring-like that it has me grinning. I mitigated the cheerfulness by adding a lot of dark purple, which clearly indicates the sober and cyclical nature of reality.

Everything is awesome

Horror Haute time!

I am drinking sak√© on this Friday evening, bracing myself for a big house party tomorrow. That is my excuse for why the overlay I stuck on this picture accidentally makes the skin seem mottled, when it’s nice and clear. For a good picture of the skin, go see what it looks like on Seraphim, OK? Also, it’s Horror Haute time! I can always count on Horror Haute to douse me in an elegant coating of blood, and it did not disappoint!

Tiny outfit, large throne

Small bikini

My outfit from Plastik is awesome and all, but LOOK LOOK I have an Evil Throne! This is an item from Kalopsia for Enchantment, and I couldn't not drag it out and use it. It makes every avatar look immediately badass. In fact, I think I should dress like an old lady and sit in it next, just to prove my point. Anyway, check out Enchantment, and definitely try on one of these tiny bikinis.

Coal miner's daughter

Fosca de Le dress for GENRE

This befrilled dress put me less in mind of the big band era, and more in mind of a late-19th-century western bar chanteuse. I think she's probably working in a saloon every night to earn some hard cash, but she sends it all back to the midwest farm where she grew up. This dress is clearly the latest fashion from Paris for bar maidens! The outfit is by Fosca de Le for GENRE, and I think that the mesh gloves with a finger-position hud is especially nifty.

Hair: Clawtooth Hearts on Fire in Red eye flight with spiked headband
Skin: MIASNOW Candy clown skin in basic
Dress and gloves: FOSCA de LE Jessica in ruby with hand-position changing gloves for GENRE
Lipstick: Senzafine Moonglow lip color in vintage red for GENRE

Bright tights

So many colors

Last night I stayed up too late. I was seduced by this pretty outfit from Hate Me and Eat Me and had to stay up to play with it. It's actually a jacket over a skirt, and the patterns are so vibrant that I was reminded of the big floral prints that abound in real life fashion for Spring 2014. I also love color, so I had to drag out my brightest hair and tights and lipstick to go with it. (And d'oh, I forgot earrings. I think I've fallen out of the habit because I usually attach elf ears or horns or something!)

Eyes: Jalwa Wisp (dragonfire)
Shoes: Ingenue Lily Flats in Prussian
Jacket and skirt: Hate Me and Eat Me Afreak skirt and jacket 002
Hair: Clawtooth Chick Habit in Blonde Redhead
Skin: MIASNOW Candy clown skin in basic with deep blue lips and teeth

I'll be your Emmylou


I know that GENRE is supposed to be Big Band era, but this dress from 14-FL-OZ combined with this hair from Exile kinda made me feel 70s country-pop instead. I think my avatar is a young country singer who's just making her way, playing a gig right before her first boob job. The look goes well with this pose prop from Mien, too -- a Mic stand with five poses, all of them very soulful. If my avatar were singing, she'd be singing this:

I’ll be your Emmylou and I’ll be your June
If you’ll be my Gram and my Johnny too.
No, I’m not asking much of you
Just sing, little darling, sing with me.
-- Emmylou by First Aid Kit

Skin: MIA14 Ember skin in healthy glow with ginger brows and thick cateye lashes
Hair: Exile Take Chances in pastels
Outfit: 14-FL-OZ big band dress and dancin' shoes for GENRE
Eyes: Kirei GloryDays in gold for GENRE

Shanti shanti shanti

A chill and hippie easter

April is the cruellest month, breeding
Lilacs out of the dead land, mixing
Memory and desire, stirring
Dull roots with spring rain.

This morning I woke up early and got ready for Easter brunch with my family. I made my daughter an Easter treasure hunt based upon TS Eliot’s The Waste Land, and filled her basket with cute Dr. Who and Hello Kitty items… only to find that she was disappointed by her basket. “No jelly beans,” she said sadly. So much for comparative mythology, right? In honor of the day I dug out one of my favorite old plushes from Katat0nik, this catty-bunny doll. She also has a group gift bunny necklace this year, but it’s hidden under my hippie shawl. Go find it in her group notices!

My shirt is new from Plastik, and it totally matches this great new hippie skirt from Trinite. Happy Rebirth of the new king!
