What Barely's Wearing Today

Barely swears to me this look gets the chicks. I can kinda see why. There’s the studied insouciance, the combination of patterns and a sort of funky warm masculinity that shows a touch of boyishness and vulnerability, which is so Barely.

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.

Happy Halloween!

I had the lucky fortune of being asked to do photos for the SL splash page and Marketplace for Linden Lab. They chose two photos, and I think it’s only fair to give credit where credit is due on the great content I used to put them together.

What Barely's Wearing Today

Barely walked in yesterday in this ensemble, looking all cool and hip without being aggravatingly hipster. (Well, maybe a little aggravating.) What Barely has going for him is a cool ease, a fine sense of himself, and some freakin’ awesome socks!

He’s kind of a mix between Brad Pitt and Zach Galifianakis and Louis CK.

He’s Ba-ack!

He’s Ba-ack!

He’s back like a bad penny, like a persistent cold sore, like my property tax bill, like dandelions in spring, like tiny little seeds in my raspberry jam that jam themselves in between my teeth and I can’t get them out… well you get the point. Barely Texan has wheedled his way back into my blog.

He's Ba-ack!

Barely’s not about the accolades; he doesn’t care if he glitters or glares or struts. He just cares that he looks cool and reflects a unique sartorial presence—when there aren’t barbecue stains on his sweater.

He's Ba-ack!

Barely graces us with this great ensemble including a cardigan/shirt combo from etham, tweed slacks from Leri Miles, boots from Theosophy and hair from Dura. No droopy pants or ‘tude with Barely. Just head-on casual chic.

He's Ba-ack!

Pink Punk

Pink Punk

“Fashion is never wrong.” ~ Malcolm McLaren

Pink Punk

A pink punk princess is today’s look, made so by Datrip Blackbart’s fascinating dress made for Fashionart. With a metal framed peplum skirt over a zebra-striped and rose bud black mini, the dress is a juxtaposition of textures and ideas and overall, a success. I love the modified halter top of the dress, the colors, the idea of metals and fabrics and sequins, and yet it all goes together, unified by the color pink. GraceHaddington’s versatile handbag, being sold also at Fashionart, has a 60 Pantone color HUD. Senzati0n Domenitzo is offering these terrific strappy shoes at Fashionart with six colors on the HUD and they fit Slink feet. Yay!

Pink Punk

I dressed up Aleida Rhode’s intense new skin with pretty pink lips and prim glittering eyeshadow from Aida Ewing. (Yes, mesh eyeshadow!) Chiaki Xue’s newest boy hair makes the look with her great pink hairbase. The hair is what turns the princess into a pink punk and makes her sleek and edgy. Poses from Kay Weston from Fashionart give a little room for flair.

Strawberry Fields

Strawberry Fields

Let me take you down, cuz I’m going to Strawberry Fields
Nothing is real and nothing to get hung about
Strawberry Fields forever

~ “Strawberry Fields Forever” by The Beatles

Strawberry Fields

Strawberry-flavored lip gloss (and I don’t mean THAT Strawberry) and a bright pink outfit and my dreary cold winter is brightened. Start with this darling sleeveless top from Cecilia Blachere that she is offering at the Designer Circle over Paul Lapointe and Bastchild Lotus’ latest sexy mini leather skirt and I am strawberry fields forever. I couldn’t resist cranking it up with tights from LacunaInc from The Attic and LeeZu Baxter’s latest mesh boots, so sexy and funky and fashionable.

Strawberry Fields

Once again Paul and Bastchild give you the great color change HUD so that you can wear this versatile skirt over and over. And of course as always, Paul gives you a really fine fanny. In fact, this mesh is engineered really well with a great curve on the hips, iat the waist and even in the option of alphas (there IS an upskirt option, you naughty ones). This is what it comes down to—you get a “fatpack” in a great HUD, sexy leather textures and a finely-engineered butt. It’s a must have.

mini hud

Tricky and Shyla Boucher are offering this lovely skin at Collabor88 this month. For the low price they are offering this, it’s a deal ebcause you get all the brows and a bunch of lipsticks per package. Get yourself down there before Collabor88 closes to pick up this sexy skin. Of course I couldn’t resist finding the pinkyest strawberryest hair in Kavar Cleanslate’s colors and wearing it. It’s absolutely gorgeous if you are going for fantasy or whack dye jobs. *Smacks my strawberry-flavored lips smugly*

Strawberry Fields

Living is easy with eyes closed
Misunderstanding all you see
It’s getting hard to be someone but it all works out
It doesn’t matter much to me
Let me take you down, cuz I’m going to Strawberry Fields
Nothing is real and nothing to get hung about
Strawberry Fields forever
