Boring

29 01 2011

Saturday Night
We look alright
We’re going out
Boring.

Paris, France
Londontown
NYC
Boring.
Nothing thrills us
Anymore
No one kills us
Anymore
Life is such a chore
When it’s….
Boring
Boring

I really hate when people jump into group chat and say, “I’m bo-ored,” don’t you? How can you possibly be bored in SL? If you are, log off. Yet the coolness of bored seems to pervade some venues. I don’t get bored, especially when you can change your look every day.

Today I have put on an assortment of pieces to equal the girl in black. First a new top from Nyte Caligari, who continues to put quality content into SL after all these years, never stopping, always improving. I love the asymmetrical nature of this top. Then we have this spangled skirt from Ivey Deschanel (who rocks the glitter in her textures). I pulled on opera gloves from Anemysk Karu for a touch of glamour and hooked in earrings from Linka Demina for a bit of fabulousness.

Then I pulled on these cyberfantastic boots from ono Zinner. The brilliant thing about this set are the animations in the soles and running up the backs of the zippers, and the great HUD for changing the colors of the details to whatever you like. The texture of the boots can be changed to four different styles (I am wearing black carbon here), and there are 10 available animations for the soles. How can you be bored when you can find fantasy boots like these?

At a Lunar Eclipse

21 12 2010

Last night was the lunar eclipse… on the longest night of the year… and of course we had complete cloud cover and snow. Wah! A great pity because this is such a rarity—lunar eclipse during the winter solstice. Thank goodness I could share it with the Girlfriends in chat.

The Lunar Eclipse

Another rarity is the artistry of Eshi Otawara. She is almost as cool as a lunar eclipse in winter except she’s warmer than sitting outside in the middle of the night looking up at the sky. Her most recent outfit shown here is a versatile piece as she offers several top and bottom options in both opaque and sheer. I fell in love with the jacket and the flared pants. There is something Eshi gets so right in proportioning her outfits that so many miss.

The Lunar Eclipse

I wear it with a uber-chic skin from aida Ewing being offered at this week’s Dressing Room. And I wanted to give Eshi’s work the proper edge it deserves so I donned a tattoo layer and hair from Emelie Carter. I am digging this tattoo a lot.

The Lunar Eclipse

Thy shadow, Earth, from Pole to Central Sea,
Now steals along upon the Moon’s meek shine
In even monochrome and curving line
Of imperturbable serenity.

How shall I link such sun-cast symmetry
With the torn troubled form I know as thine,
That profile, placid as a brow divine,
With continents of moil and misery?

And can immense Mortality but throw
So small a shade, and Heaven’s high human scheme
Be hemmed within the coasts yon arc implies?

Is such the stellar gauge of earthly show,
Nation at war with nation, brains that teem,
Heroes, and women fairer than the skies?

~ Thomas Hardy

Inspired by a Violet….

8 12 2010

A friend of mine, Mr. Oh, recently IM’d me to tell me about a new blog he had come upon. He is a wonderful blogger for Second Man—articulate, critical and illustrative. He raises the bar for other bloggers every time. So a recommendation from him needs to be heeded. And he was right. Digital Butch is a terrific blog by Saaskje Violet, a “boi” who likes to show her butch looks and explain where to find fashions she likes. What I so like about it is that Saaskje definitely has an editorial viewpoint, a unique voice, and a great fashion sense. Inspired by Saaskje, I put together this look.

Inspired by a Violet...

First the jacket, a punk marvel from Amerie Spitteler, who has her own unique voice. Kinda punk, kinda Tokyo street girl, it’s hard where it needs to be and sweet where it needs to be. I especially like how she got the system piece to convincingly show belts across the torso and combine it with the prim belt. It’s all of a piece and makes sense. I wear a little bra from Mariska Simons underneath—our girl is pretty underneath all that armor, you know. And leggings are from AvaGardner Kungler. Didn’t think she could do punk, didya?

I love these boots from Vasha Martinek, which I have been holding on to for a while. Vasha offers a plethora of fantasy and funky boots at DV8 and her designs are getting less chunky and more refined. My only complaint? This set did not have RED boots!

Inspired by a Violet...

I know a couple days ago I pointed out that Gala Phoenix’s skins were “young” skins—too baby-faced, too dewy. For this look they are perfect because the sweetness of the skins softens this look substantially. I don’t expect a punky girl to be all sophisticated. I expect her face to show vulnerability, and this skin makes it work.

My glorious hair is from Emilie Carter, who provides the grid with shaved, wild hair that is beautiful at the same time. In addition, she makes hair bases that are shaved to match her wild hair.
