The Apoplectic Post Apocalypse

The Apoplectic Post Apocalypse

“I’m a fuel-injected suicide machine! I am a rocker, I am a roller, I am an out-of-controller!” ~ Nightrider in “Max Max”

The Pursuit

Genre’s theme this month is post apocalyptic, so I threw together a look from all the great stuff offered that is fierce and sexy, hoping I could share with you a little post apocalyptic style. Top to bottom, items that are from Genre: wild red hair from Cruella Pennell, who includes two different shaved heads that are tintable if you need to go wild. Then there is a “tiara” from Photos Nikolaidis that I tinted myself to match more with my outfit. A little necklace from Plurabelle Laszlo, a remake of a great bottlecap necklace she had done years ago (I know because it was my first happiness from Bliensen + Maitai). My bracer from Discovering Destiny includes vials of.. something and the ever-important key.

The Pursuit

I rezzed the trailer from Jack Mondegreen and somehow my photo platform transformed itself into the Wastelands and bizarre characters of dubious provenance wandered across my scene. Soon I was engaging in chase scenes and various other feats of survival, using poses from Nancoix Urquan. Boots from Keishi Roo, of course, give me the edge and  the skirt from Spooky Mistwallow (yes, tough girls can wear skirts, especially when they wield a nail studded baseball bat from Draconias Timeless). All of the above is from Genre. Capture was in order with a great pose set from Kirsty Oherlihy (not available at Genre but essential to this narrative). I gave Z a run for his money!

The Pursuit

I am wearing Paul Lapointe and Bastchild Lotus’ new corset, which includes a great texture change HUD with a ton of color options for the leather and the metal studs. Clicking this look in took a bit of time because I had so many choices! Paul makes a variety of sizes of mesh to suit your body proportions. If you prefer to be a bit more busty, he gives you that option. Any piece from L&B is chock full of options and is made of 100% original and well-rigged mesh. I can’t speak highly enough of their work.

I want to point out I am wearing the mesh Venus body from Belleza. I have done a few things with it to complete my look. I clicked on the push up breasts to fill in that corset, and I reduced my shape size. I still can’t understand why folks resist messing around with their shape a little to get the look they want to achieve with their mesh body. This is the fitted mesh we all wanted for so long! Let’s use it! I reduced my breast size slightly to fit the higher boobs from the shape into this corset and voila!

I also invested a paltry sum and some time into the Omega appliers so I could wear the  great textured stockings on Omega appliers Bax Coen JUST came out with. Make sure you get the NEW [LNL] Omega System Kit – Belleza. Wear the “installer,” click it to load into your body, and then you can wear the Omega applier from Bax and click, you’re in business.  Fishnets! Do you want to figure out how to do this yourself? Join the Love N Lust group or join Skin Addiction group and ask.

And incidentally, Skin Addiction is having a blow out Black Friday sale starting this Friday. You need to join the Skin Addiction group (tp here) and then you wear your tag to get a kick back on any advertised purchases. (You also get to enjoy the scintillating repartee in the group and get help from hundreds, nay THOUSANDS of informed skin shoppers who also know tons about everything else SL.) There are OVER 50 creators offering at LEAST 25% off for this event so, as Maxxi says, find your sugar daddy and get shopping!

Plus je t’embrasse, plus j’aime t’embrasser
Plus je t’enlace, plus j’aime t’enlacer
Le temps qui passe ne peut rien y changer
Mon coeur bat quand tu t’en vas
Mais tout va bien quand tu reviens car
Plus je t’embrasse, plus j’aime t’embrasser
Je ne peux m’en passer
J’en ai tellement envie que j’oublie tout dans la vie
C’est sans cesse que j’aime t’embrasser

Plus Je T’embrasse

My friend just got back from a week plus in Paris. It was a wonderful visit, a chance to wander around one of his favorite cities, revisit his French, and enjoy the colors and cuisines. At one point, he told me, he looked at the cost of flats in Paris. He really wanted to stay. I understand that feeling. I had done the same the last time I was there.

He pointed out to me that two young ladies who helped him with some work he was doing there were typically Parisian—they wore their clothes with a casual elegance that only Parisian girls manage. I hope I get a measure of that elegance with this look. Start with a coat from Erratic Rain, beautifully rendered in 100% original mesh with a great texture change hud for the buttons and sleeves and available in 10 colors.

I switched the sleeves to white so I could wear it with this darling asymmetric skirt from Areve, who is having a sale at her new location. This skirt comes in 5 colors on a handy HUD and in you can get four different versions. I happened to pick up several things.

Plus Je T’embrasse

Terrie Dreadlow is also having a sale in honor of her 6th rez day and I got these darling t-straps meant for Slink feet but also fit Belleza mesh body feet with minor adjustment. The shoes have a great color change HUD and are also modifiable (so I could darken the red to match). At 66L, these shoes were a STEAL.

Umazuma Metaluna has released the bare Hazel skins and I gladly donned one with a great lipstick from Zxxrysa Magic, free in the Dirty Turkey Hunt. Long wavy locks from Ms. Queue Marlowe give the final touch.

~ “I’s a Muggin’” by Django Reinhart

I's a Muggin'

I chose this lyric and title because I’m mugging for the camera. Well, not quite making faces, but definitely feeling smug because Hannah Daviau came out with a new dress she named “Harper.” When I asked to blog it, she didn’t disabuse me of the notion that it was named for me, so let’s just imagine it is, and I am glad because it’s a darling dress with a great coming-winter theme. Since it’s knit, you could possibly wear it with leggings or under a jacket and enjoy its warmth.

My sexy shoes are full mesh from beanster Potato and come with a great texture-change HUD. And Zaara Kohime has made this absolutely gorgeous jewelry for Collabor88 with her exquisite textures and great mesh styling and proportions. I always loved Zaara’s jewelry in prims so I am excited to see she’s making it in mesh now.

I's a Muggin'

I am wearing the updated Belleza mesh body with all its improvements and I have experimented already with appliers, which seem to be going on quite well without glitches (though I wear none here). Today I made it easy on myself and wore the body with one of Shyla Diggs’ gorgeous skins. I always feel classically beautiful in her work. And my full hair is one of Shylah Honey’s great new styles, this one for We <3 Role Play with a big ponytail in back and those sexy bangs around the face.

Caught in the Wild

Caught in the Wild

“So, I ask you. Who is the happier elf? She who has braved the seas of life and risked everything, or she who has stood upon the shore and merely existed?” (based on a quote by Hunter S. Thompson)

Caught in the Wild

As it’s known, sometimes I am too lazy to do my own blog so I pull in another avatar who has a fabulous look to stand in for me. Today I feature the avatar Omenapu, who so kindly offered to pose for me and write something up.

She is a tribal elf, wandering the demilitarized territory between two great civilizations. Stealing and hunting to make a living, and rarely mixing with humanity.

Much of this outfit was created by the masterful Pucca Firecaster, whose texturing and design of all things fantasy is second to none. And just begs to be layered and mixed.

 

Caught in the Wild

Don’t be afraid to play with attachments and mix-and-match accessories to achieve a style. Custom tinting is very easy to do on moddable items and can be all you need to tie an outfit together.

I tend to use only moddable items when making an outfit in SL. Very often, I will see a particular part of an item that I like, but do not necessarily care to use the whole item. I’ll edit a face and make parts invisible, and link and attach things in places for which they were not designed, just to get that certain je ne sais quoi.

My Name Is Red

My Name Is Red

“I’m so fortunate to be red! I’m fiery. I’m strong. I know men take notice of me and that I cannot be resisted.

I do not conceal myself: For me, delicacy manifests itself neither in weakness nor in subtlety, but through determination and will. So, I draw attention to myself. I’m not afraid of other colours, shadows, crowds or even of loneliness. How wonderful it is to cover a surface that awaits me with my own victorious being! Wherever I’m spread, I see eyes shine, passions increase, eyebrows rise and heartbeats quicken. Behold how wonderful it is to live! Behold how wonderful to see. I am everywhere. Life begins with and returns to me. Have faith in what I tell you.”

~ “My Name is Red” by Orhan Pamuk

My Name Is Red

Barely sent me a snap of Ziki Questi in this dress and I had had HAD to have it. It’s a buy on Marketplace from LindaB Helendale, a mesh dress with color and texture change HUD for the little coins and links. With materials added to the mix, the whole piece is a sexy mod (modern, not modifiable) dress for the hottest nights out. It fit absolutely perfectly over the Belleza Mesh Body, which will be seeing developer kits (today!), updates to the current body, and new versions very very soon, according to Tricky Boucher (who has listened to all the feedback and wrapped in many new improvements). Join the Skin Addiction group to get the gossip!

My Name Is Red

I used the Omega Applier HUD to wear my great underwear, which was designed originally for PhatAzz. With a little swapping of scripts and the additional HUD for the Belleza body, I was in business. My gorgeous sexy shoes are Nardya Rousselot’s stilettos, which she has made for Slink or Belleza feet.

Shyla Diggs’ new Grace skin matches the body perfectly, of course, and completely fits because it’s as sexy as sexy gets. I wore one of the lipstick tattoos and added a whole lot of sexy in one click. Truth Hawks recently presented this new, sexy long hair with bangs, which flows down in straight but sexy locks.

Virginia Lover

Virginia Lover

“The November evening had a bite; it nibbled not-quite-gently at her cheeks and ears. In Virginia the late autumn was a lover, still, but a dangerous one.”
― J. Aleksandr Wootton, The Eighth Square

Virginia Lover

November is upon us in the northern hemisphere and slowly the days are growing much longer, the weather is colder and it’s rainy with some snow. Bleah. Time for a sweater, this one a lovely crocheted masterpiece in varigated yarns from Gocha Merlin. I tripped on her store in MP when I was doing the LL ads and loved her funky knits and outfits. She seems to do her own mesh with some great textures. I opted to wear the sweater with shorts and tights as I see all the girls around my area doing. Mesh shorts from Erratic Rain fit perfectly underneath and old old cabled tights I had in inventory from Myllie Writer with new mesh boots from Kenadeecole (so cool and fit on the Belleza body if you wear it).

Virginia Lover

Sad November has started and there are lots of fun things including this umbrella with an elaborate color change hud for different elements of the umbrella and an AO that keeps it in place while you walk around from Jaimy Hancroft. My hair has a great set of hair texture colors AND complete control of colors on the band and muffs of the ear uffs from Ikira Frimon. I wore pink lipstick from Constance Daehlie (and her lovely eyes for Enchanted) with a skin from Shyla Diggs. It all works together. Even if the skies are gray, my look is bright.

The Miller’s Daughter

The Miller’s Daughter

She spun gold from straw….

The Miller's Daugher

Enchantment opens on the first and as always, it is chock full of Grimm Brothers charm. The theme this round is “Rumplestilskin,” the story of a miller’s daughter who is commanded to spin gold from straw, who makes a deal with Rumplestiltskin and finds later she’s made a deal she can’t live with. The daughter in the story is, of course, comely, so this dress from Kiddo Oh makes all the sense in the world for this fairy tale. It’s beautifully rendered from mesh with a lovely floral pattern and a pretty lace decolletage. She has made matching chokers for the dress.

The fun part of Enchantment is, of course, the punchcards. You go to each store in the event and get your card punched and then take it to the special prize area to redeem for one of the many prizes. To get a card, you have to purchase simply one of the featured items. Cards are transferable if you want to give a gift to a friend.

The Miller's Daugher

The Body Modification Expo closes today but you can still sneak in and get this lovely skin from Sawsan Secretspy. With a sexy eyeliner and pretty lips, it’s a great deal. My hair is one of Truth’s newest with a bow with inexplicable spikes in it. (The hair with its bow was so darling I overlooked them.) My gorgeous eyes are Constance Daehlie’s, also featured for Enchantment.
