Touchdown

8 02 2010

I said I would be doing a week of special gifties to give your lady friends for Valentine’s. I start out with this one in honor of Sunday’s special game. So this is for you guys who bought the NFL Season Package on cable for your partner so you could “spend some time together.” Yeah, you who got the “Beer of the Month Club” for her anniversary gift. Who taped over your wedding video with Super Bowl XLIII or the World Cup. I know you’re out there, you fools. You should have read my blogs a few days ago and picked her up a beautiful dress to get yourself out of the doghouse. Why don’t you at least get her something you will BOTH like?

Touchdown

This little (emphasize “little”) ensemble is surprisingly made by Sissy Pessoa, who is usually known for her feminine couture gowns and flirty clothes. Let’s start with the sexy bra and shorty shorts with a supple leather texture. How’s that for a little cowhide, guys? Then there are the tube socks. I definitely never expected tube socks from Sissy, but she pulls them off with her usual aplomb.

Touchdown

I cheer up the look with a delicious skin from Gala Phoenix. Nothing like a little glow on the skin to show a girl who is athletic and has the stamina for a full four quarters.

Touchdown

For the final touch, I wore my favorite hi-tops from Coke Dreadlow and clicked around to make them all matchy matchy. Gosh I love these shoes.

Inventoil

14 10 2009

I was on Pooky Amsterdam’s 1st Question show last night. I was representin’ for all us fashionistas out there in the grid who are thought of as brainless and boring. I won the game, partially on knowing about the Stanford Prison Experiment and partially on the made up word I presented—”inventoil”: the process of sorting inventory night after night.

Inventoil

Which lead me to the inevitable—spending another portion of my evening trying to tame my out-of-control inventory. Remember those days when you were a newbie and you had a mere 2,000 and most of it was freebies and you spent hours working on that (sorting the dreck—it eventually all got dumped). Now I have far more than that.. far far more.. and most of it is darn great stuff. I can’t bear to get rid of any of it. Like the jar of fireflies.

Inventoil

Or the drinks from Tableau and the super Tophat from Pandora Wrigglesworth, which sprouts a propellor when one flies. (A souvenir from a whole afternoon of entertainment at her store.)

Or this uh… pan of eggs and sausage I am lying in.

Inventoil

Or this highflying umbrella from Elizabeth Attenborough.

The question is—what folder do I put these in?

Objects > Wearable > Particles > Insects?

Objects > Fun Silly Stuff > Food Related > Eggs?

Clothing > Hats > Animated > Silly?

Objects > Drinks > Alcoholic > Fizzy?

Cleaning inventory means you dress down, so I wore this cute hair from Truth Hawks named after Ana Lutetia (who probably has a doozy of an inventory herself), fresh and young skin from Monicuuza Babenco, top and shorts from Magen Jigsaw’s sensation sale at EmJay, socks from Krius Misfit (found in the back of the drawer), bandaids from Riq Graves (found in the bottom of a purse so I slapped them on), and my super cool Pornstar Lo-Tops from Coke Dreadlow.

Making Cookies

2 10 2009

Today’s a day for making cookies.

Making Cookies

I am celebrating my new shoes. (Yes, it turns out it really is all about the shoes… ask Anessa.) I had a chat with Coke Dreadlow, the maker of the puddle jumpers I reviewed a few days ago, and he asked if I had seen his Lo-Tops. Well, no I hadn’t so he kindly passed me a pair. I spent the next hour plus fiddling with them, clicking buttons on the hud, changing colors on the laces and the sides and the tops, joyfully experiencing my new shoes (which fit like they were old shoes).

They started out this spiffy black with white laces, the kind every cool guy wears until he’s 43 (and then at that magic age, they are not so cool anymore). Then I did this preppy punk version with the argyle and the checks.

Making Cookies

I kind of got out of hand with it. I did the koi with flowers with complimentary purple laces. Then I did the .. well.. clown shoes *cough*. I just couldn’t stop.

Making Cookies

It’s all due to the brilliance of this handy dandy super-magical hud included with the shoes. You can click the inside on and change that to polka dots, or click the inside and outside and make them all bunny pink, or click the tongue and laces and make the camouflage or… well you get the picture. The only thing missing is the ball-point penned-on doodles my RL Chuck Taylors had (and the tread traced around on the bottom with the same ball point). Coke has made a fun and functional piece of brilliant art.

Making Cookies

There really is a story about making cookies somewhere in here. I made some oatmeal chocolate chip cookies tonight, reminded by the handy dandy mixer strapped to my leg (complete with beaters). Gosh I love this mixer from PrimtroniCS. I pulled out a wooden spoon and put this ensemble on. The uber-cute jeans were a bloggers gift from Anyusha Lilienthal and the top is one from Cynthia Ultsch I snagged at the RFL clothing fair.

I bet you are wondering about these robot earrings. I bought the earrings and bracelet at the recent Jewelry Fair because they were whimsical and cool. They matched the shoes in lightheartedness. I saw an artist at a recent art show in Chicago doing prints with robots similar to these. I predict robots are the Next Big Thing. (Haven’t they been saying that for about a century now? Next thing you know they will be telling us we will be talking on typewriters to each other and walking around as cartoons!)
