Fresh and Unknown

March 11, 2012

I found this sweet, fresh little mesh dress from Sugar when I stumbled upon the Depraved Nation Gatcha Fair.  Chloe and my alt both got rare dresses!  Woot!  It’s going on until the 17th, so be sure you get down there and pick up some great deals.

Also going on this month is the Fresh Unknown Hunt.  It’s been a while since my first post about it, so I’ll remind you about the concept:  The hunt is filled with gifts from newer designers and creators.  These stores have been open for less than 5 months, so expect to find some great new favorite creators as you’re hunting!  This cute skybox is from dirty.little.secret and I’m absolutely in love with the feathery touches throughout the design.  The hunt runs all month, so you’ve got a few more weeks to get out there.  Happy hunting!

52 Weeks of Color, Part Deux – Dandelion

March 8, 2012

I’m playing a bit of catch-up with my color challenge, but I’m getting there.

The focus for this color isn’t just about the look, it’s about this lovely vignette from Zoe’s Garden.  Adele Rhiadra makes me so happy when she creates these little meadows (her Autumn Island is one of my other favorites).

I wasn’t really thinking about it when I was putting this shot together, but Chloe often helps me work through my thoughts while I’m blogging, and today she brought my attention to the fact that spring is right around the corner – daylight saving time is this weekend!  I know most of us haven’t had a “real” winter, and I don’t know about you, but I think I’m subconsciously yearning for spring.  Chloe’s outstretched arms and closed eyes made me realize that I am looking forward to spring.  Embracing it, even.  I’ve had a lot of changes going on in my RL and change is always hard for me.  Change is a scary thing, but it has to happen.  So, as the season changes, hopefully I’ll be welcoming whatever blossoms in my life as much as I’m looking forward to the first dandelions poking their heads out of the grass.

(How spoiled by mesh are we??  I grumbled about this system skirt the whole time I had it on!  LOL)

Blogging is Fun!

January 24, 2012

That’s what I keep trying to remind myself.  Blogging IS fun.  I really enjoy it.  Until I don’t.  But that’s usually my fault and this pic (an unedited snap from SL with the adorable, lacy, girly skirt and corset set from Agnes Finney) and post are here to be my reminders.  And yours, too.  (Provided the scary SL smile doesn’t bother you too much.)

If it makes you happy, do it.  If it doesn’t make you happy…  Why are you doing it?  I’m sure there’s some cute typographical Tumblr quote that says this better than I did, but…  The meaning is the same.  Oooh, and I may have thought of a song lyric…  Nah, never mind, it didn’t quite work.

Right.  Okay, so…  Be happy, my sweets.  <3

Fleur du Wicked

October 20, 2011

So, it just so happens that people miss my blog.  Or so I’m told.  And since someone I care about suggested that I get back at it…  Here I am.  I am horrified to realize that Luna’s 52 Weeks of Color challenge is in week fifty while I’m stuck back in week… pfft…  who knows.  I am embarrassed to have been missing hunts and challenges and generous designers as I lost myself in a bit of a stabbity place.  So in the spirit of stabbitiness (unsure) I put together a wicked, angry, fierce little Halloween-esque look that got its inspiration from a fantastic set of eyes by Aymeric Pelazzi of Fleur Du Mâle. Aymeric has a whole line of Alive eyes, which he brings to life by adding prim lights to system eyes.  I popped in the poison colored Drake eyes and totally fell in love with their demonic, inhuman quality and the amazing vivid coloring. I am now in need of some FDM human eyes to wear on a regular basis!

I pulled out some other well loved items from my inventory:  Vita’s Irena hair…  lovelovelove.  SO much fun to photograph.  Ely’s witchy tattoo tint is perfectly done, delivering pretty-ugly flawlessly.  My Gos Curvaceous boots, which are still oh so lick-worthy.  The Memory Wire necklace from the Platinum Hunt (2010!) finally gets to come out and play for a post.  Jux makes sure my body language (please picture Ursula’s hip shake in the Little Mermaid here) says just as much as the rest of me.  And a new love, my Rue horns, get to make an appearance too.

And a close up of the FDM Alive Drake eyes in Succubus.

Perception

April 5, 2011

Perception is everything, they say.  Well, it may not be everything, but Mattie Rae’s Perception certainly has the selection to make everyone happy.  There are so many eye color choices, I lost count of the number available (my attention span let me get past 30 packs before ditching out on me). I’m sharing a VERY small range of what’s available, randomly chosen for this post.  These eyes are bright and reflective with nice clean whites.  I prefer my irises a little bit smaller than these and there are no size choices in the packs, so if I had a complaint about the product, that would be it.  It must not really bother me, though, because they’re what I’ve been wearing since I got them.

(And somehow my graphics settings magically changed themselves, so I apologize for the lower quality of this photo.)

52 Weeks of Color – Banana Mania

April 2, 2011

…banana mania?  Seriously?  A)  What kind of crazy, cracked out crayon color is that?  B)  Why isn’t it really yellow?!?  I’m linking y’all to Luna’s post so you can see the swatch.  I couldn’t decide what to do for this one- follow the given color or put together an outfit that looks like banana mania in my head.  Now, mind you, that wasn’t a very pretty sight, but it made more sense to me than what I came up with.  Regardless of my color confusion, I came up with a look I really enjoyed for this week.  I tried to channel a nice, lovable banana pudding for this post.  You know?  With vanilla wafers and whipped cream?  I don’t know…  southerners like to eat it, I think it’s gross.  Anyway…

The crowning glories of this pic are the new(ish) RezIpsa Loc Frances hair, the sweet pearl necklace from Dark Mouse and some new eyes from Perception.  Frances is my first hair with two attachment points and I was very impressed with how well it worked out.  No more hair eating boobs!  Yay for that!  The necklace from DM is the VIP gift for this month.  You couldn’t see the adorable bow at the clasp, but Mouse has matching earrings in her gacha machines at the store too.  Perception must have been listening in on my plurk line, because she answered my call for some gorgeous eyes with nice bright whites.  I’m also wearing a little fri.day (of course), a pair of leather pants from the Pure Juice Event and the newly updated Tiger heels from SLink.

I pulled out the Adele set from Clutter because almost all the texture change options coordinated with my backdrop.  It has a handful of cute sits built in, but for some reason I had to use the Temptress.  So I cheated a little and mixed and matched.

SLink into the Sky

March 19, 2011

So, I MAY have gotten a little silly with this week’s 52 Weeks of Color Challenge.  But when Luna picked Sky Blue for this week, it gave me the perfect excuse to buy this sexy catsuit from SLink.  I exhibited a tiny bit of restraint and did not purchase the fatpack.  Despite its wonderful “deal” classification, I had no need for a lamé catsuit in every color of the rainbow.  And I’d already spent enough lindens on those heels I bought the other day.  Thankfully (sadly?) the SLink sale was capped off and celebrated with a grand party thrown by Siddean Munro.

Anyway, I mentioned a couple weeks ago that I was thinking about this sexy, from space thing.  Well, I finally pulled it together, pulled on my sexy, ass-kicking space girl stilettos and poured myself into that catsuit.  And after all that, I can’t even make myself the hero in my own story.  …or can I?

Oh, and a quick rant…   I NEED PHOENIX TO GET MULTIPLE LAYERS!  Had I been able to use the flight override feature in Phoenix and the multiple tattoo layers in Kirsten’s, my makeup would have been a whole lot more spectacular.  Not to mention my cleavage.

Pure Papillon

March 16, 2011

I’m sure y’all will be happy when I stop using that Pure Juice reference in all of my titles, huh?  LOL   After all the hype of the event, I finally had a chance to try on some of the comfy (read “more me”) clothes that were available.  So I settled down in my e! top and Republic flats and hatched me some butterflies!

Papillon Breedables are open!  And what does that mean to you?  Butterflies, of course!  The creators have been working SO hard on this release and are beyond excited to move out of beta and into real SLife.  And they should be.  They’ve put together such an extensive product.  I’m not big on breedables (buy the creature and then have your life savings sucked away in order to keep them alive), though I’ve had a bunny and a fairy and a horse- no chickens.  But I couldn’t pass up the idea of butterflies.  Don’t ask me why, I don’t know why, but I’m so glad I invested the time to visit the store and read all their materials and OF COURSE, buy some butterflies.  I picked up a Breeding Starter Kit for 199L that contained one male, one female, two plants and one beehive.  The butterflies are very easy to hatch, unlike some breedables that will break if you remove them from inventory incorrectly or if you touch them too soon before they hatch or birth or whatever.  The butterflies work like they should: drag, drop, hatch, butterfly, yay!  They are also fairly easy to control once you have them rezzed and hatched.  You can use their scripted menus or my preferred method, the Control HUD.  I didn’t love having to click on the butterfly after each choice made in the menus, so the HUD was much better for me, though for individual changes you’d have to use the specific butterfly’s menu.  The Control HUD came in a (currently) free box of HUDs and goodies.

And speaking of goodies…  Holy cow.  The creators have put together such a detailed experience for the breeders.  I won’t go into everything here, but let me say that the Papillon butterflies are somewhat of a cross between all the positive aspects of breedables and the fun and adventure of a good RPG.  Genetics and classes and bonuses (breed for that queen, folks!) that you’d get from that combination are placed in this wonderful little eco-community of butterflies, plants and other insects- all with the possibility for adventure!  The thought that went into this little ecosystem is amazing.  There are plants that feed the butterflies in different ways, gardening supplies to help maximize the productivity of those plants and accessories that have various effects on your garden.  My two favorites are the beehive and the psychedelic shroom.  The beehive (this shows some of the detailed thought that went into the creation of this product) has bees, obviously, that go out and kill spiders in your plants so their webs don’t harm your butterflies.  The psychedelic shroom improves your chances of breeding rare or mutated babies!  How fun is that??

I’m getting a little long winded here, but I want to say one more thing.  The accessories and gardening supplies and plants were all created to help your butterflies live and grow happily with the least investment possible.  There’s even a type of plant that increases in value and productivity the longer you own it – and the market for reselling has already emerged.  So buy some butterflies, breed some butterflies, enjoy your butterflies.  You won’t spend all your Lindens because it’s not necessary.
