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.

Fashion For Life

March 13, 2011

I stopped over at the Fashion For Life sims today to see how the American Cancer Society affiliated event was going.  I’m feeling antsy and impatient tonight, so although the ridiculously high ARCs of some of the other patrons chased me off the gorgeous black and white sims, one spot of color caught my eye.  I had to grab one of the gorgeous dresses from Vlintuition.  I’ve never heard of this creator before because I’ve never really looked into this style of clothing, but the choli and sari (I hope that’s right, forgive me if it’s not) are really beautifully done.

Hopefully you’re a little more tolerant than I am today and you can make some time to head over to the event.  It’s running until the 22nd, so you still have a few days.  The event seems to be really well organized and tightly associated with not only Relay For Life, as the Clothing Fair has been in the past, but with the ACS itself.  I know it’s difficult to decide where to send your charity dollars, but don’t forget that even in the face of dramatic and visually powerful disasters we’re fighting a much quieter battle with cancer every day.
