Subterranean Homesick Alien

Subterranean Homesick Alien

Up above
Aliens hover
Making home movies
For the folks back home…

I wish that they’d swoop down in a country lane
Late at night when I’m driving
Take me on board their beautiful ship
Show me the world as I’d love to see it

Subterranean Homesick Alien

Sometimes Radiohead lyrics mean nothing–or snippets do. But this song is an actual story—and I like it. Who would we meet on board their beautiful ship?

I climbed aboard Matchbook Monday’s new beautiful ship when I went to see her new jewelry store, Amorous, and I was shown the world as I love to see it. The build itself is pretty impressive—a lift takes you to the showroom floor with jewelry of amazing quality and textures. (It’s such an impressive build I actually shot on site and you are being subjected to a few extra shots.) Matchbook built the entire build herself—which shows she really has the chops to make things, big or small, in SL.

The feature of this blog, of course, is her jewelry. The necklace and earrings I am wearing include color changing scripts so you can choose a variety of color combos between the gems, making the necklace infinitely versatile. Most of her jewelry features such flexibility. She is still filling the store with goodies but what she has already is amazing. I love her use of offset circles and rich textures in many of her pieces. I can feel the weight and quality of this jewelry just looking at it.

My skin is one of Juliette Westerburg’s distinctive looks, one I believe I got as an exclusive a year ago. Juliette likes to play with ideas and looks, breaking outside the box of normal SL makeup with her hand-drawn pieces, which suits this beautiful jewelry. My hair is from Elikapeka Tiramisu, the grande dame of hair in SL.

My dress is one of the lovely offerings for the Platinum Hunt from Zoey Gabardini. She gives you this dress with both silver and gold bodices and the terrific sculpty skirt for a mere 10L. The hunt’s still on—don’t forget. My boots are from Bax Coen, and I want to note that Bax has done somethign I wish a lot of shoe and boot makers would do. She has made it so you can exchange your old Prestige boots for new versions that include invisiprims that can be clicked off. This is important because 1. we don’t need invisiprims in most clients anymore—the alpha layer solves our cankle problem and 2. invisiprims cause icky problems when using shadows. I ran to get my replacement boots when I went to do these photos so I could show the beauty of the boots and the build—not my invisiprims.

I’d tell all my friends
But they’d never believe
They’d think that I’d finally lost it completely

I’d show them the stars
And the meaning of life
They’d shut me away
But I’d be all right
All right..

  1. Oh gosh, I didn’t answer here.. I thought I did.. The liner is not a makeup..it’s part of the skin. And I wore the lashes and clicked them to color them white.
