“There is nothing holier in this life of ours than the first consciousness of love, the first fluttering of its silken wings.” ~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow


My beautiful sexy fae is today’s fantasy, a winged queen with a sensuous look. Start with the lascivious pearl harness Sigifaust has made for this month’s Shiny Shabby. It was fully modifiable so I could shape it around my Maitreya body. I added Bax Coen’s up to there thigh high boots, this version made specifically for the Maitreya body, and a beautiful crown of jewels from Donatela Couturier to grace my butterfly queen. Pretty wings from artladyjas make her a butterfly.


My inspiration started with one of Umazuma Metaluna’s gorgeous appliers for the TAG Gacha with a butterfly stamped across the eyes and luscious purple lips. I have to say that Uma’s skins are gorgeously evocative on the Catwa Jessica head and they photo so beautifully. I can’t want for her to do more! I chose beautiful mesh eyes from Soleil Reid to echo the gold and purple in my outfit and I colored my hair from Shylah Honey, one of hers at the Fantasy Collective, with one of the 40 colors in their new HUD. What a fantasy!

Luck Be a Lady

Luck Be a Lady

They call you lady luck
But there is room for doubt

~ “Luck Be a Lady” by Frank Sinatra

Luck Be a Lady

I am one lucky lady. I have this sexy little dress from Ariadna Garrigus, these longer than long red vinyl thigh high boots from Bax Coen and my own showgirl sign, advertising my luck from Agustkov. The dress comes in black with red or white but I chose the red because it’s my lucky color. The boots come in several colors—they were recently released in vinyl because, well, every girl in SL needs a little kink in her SL. And the sign is a great one with texture change, on and off marquee lights, and seven poses—some of which I show here except lying on my back, which is one of Rogan Diesel’s new “Erotique” poses.

Luck Be a Lady

It seems lady luck is what you need at the gachas. I thought SL banned gambling but a little gumball machine stuffing doesn’t seem out of the question. I am lucky because I got Queue Marlowe’s rarest hair offered at the Arcade, this fresh-out-of-bed sexy ‘do with a queen of hearts crown. And my skin is one of Umazuma Metaluna fresh faces from the Arcade. I love the cat eyes and the bright cherry lips softened by a freckled face. Sexy as heck—get them all!

Luck Be a Lady

I would be remiss in telling you about the gift for the fourth day of the KittyCats Advent Calendar. It’s such a sweet gift, it just didn’t fit in with my Lady Luck, but you’d be lucky to get it. Dellybean North has lovingly recreated the KittyCats in a music-playing snow globe. Click the globe and snow falls while a sweet lullaby plays.


Lets keep this party polite
Never get out of my sight
Stick with me baby, I’m the guy that you came in with
Luck be a lady tonight

The Serpent

The Serpent

“And the woman said, ‘The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat.’” ~ The Bible

The Serpent

Bax Coen has just released her new thigh high boots, based on the latest technology she has exploited to create a boot that doesn’t need an in-world staff to fit. Her “Collision Bone Deformer” allows the boots to fit to your avatar, adapting to slider changes. (I am proof because my legs are often too muscular for many mesh products—these fit me like a skin.)

The Serpent

She has also included materials textures on the boots so you can see sheen and surface details. I have featured a video about materials that explains what they are. Most people don’t get it until they see it.

The Serpent

The best part is the boots are mesh, which means they move with you. Bax has been very careful in making these boots. A peek to the inside shows she has textured the upper lip. The boot bends naturally around the calf and knee so you don’t see the ungainly bending that is clear on so many mesh pieces that go over joints. Most people won’t notice this, but it’s a design marvel. They’ll just see how hot they look.

The Serpent

My serpent friend is Rogan Diesel’s offering for this month’s Collabor88. With three color options for the snake and 10 different poses with snakes wrapped around the torso, it’s a hot posing accessory. Even more convenient, the snake rezzes separately from the avatar, so you can use this snake for your self or others.

The Serpent

I am wearing a glittery bikini from One Bad Pixel’s recent release. With sexy side ties and a shimmering texture, it’s a snake handler’s dream, especially when set against the glimmer of a serpent. My necklace is AvaGardner Kungler’s latest offering for L’accessoires, which is celebrating their first anniversary this month.

The Serpent

My skin is one of Aida Ewing’s features in the latest Collabor88. I chose the freckles because I wanted a girl who was marked beautifully by nature the same way the serpent is. My hair is Tabata Jewell’s newest long wavy ‘do. She includes a HUD for texture changing with each color pack, relieving your inventory of carrying a multiplicity of pieces.

The Serpent

To beguile the time,
Look like the time, bear welcome in your eye,
Your hand, your tongue; look like the innocent flower,
But be the serpent under’t.
~ William Shakespeare

Char is our girl today. Born in the 80s, she is the daughter of a brief but fruitful marriage between an aging rock star and a young groupie. Her daddy, Slim Jim Ross, was a rock star “in the 60s or 70s or something,” Char says. Her momma, considerably younger, was a Jazzercise instructor he met on tour in Tulsa. Now her momma teaches Zumba in Santa Monica and lives in a two-bedroom ranch paid for with his alimony, and Char lives in with her Daddy in Brentwood.

Slim Jim had two hits: “You Ain’t My Baby (No More)” and “In Your Velvet Spaceship.” (“Yeah, Baby, that song was for your mother, Crystal,” he coughed out, taking his first toke after a 5 mile jog. “But Daddy, my mom was Christine.” “Yeah, that’s what I said, right? Christine.” Crystal was his second wife. Her mother was his fourth. Char knew he had it wrong.) Char was named Chardonnay, after her momma’s favorite wine. Char is the apple of her father’s eye, his youngest, his “Baby Girl,” the one spending her siblings’ inheritance via increments of charges on his American Express.


This may lead you to believe that Char has no redeeming values beyond those of being Slim Jim’s progeny, but that is not true. When J-Lo doesn’t know what to wear, she rings up Char. When Paris is perplexed, she phones Char. When Beyonce is befuddled, she texts Char. The Olson twins somehow lost Char’s number. That’s because Char shops so much, so knows where to get it all.

And her outfit today is comprised of only the best: first a top and skirt from LeeZu Baxter, designer extraordinaire. LeeZu puts the micro in the mini with this skirt—a waistband barely clinging to a scrap of flowered fabric. So brief it’s like a moment in time except LeeZu still manages to cover the essentials without making it ridiculous. Then the flowered top—a collage of tassel and lace and rose with textured sheer cotton. Char shows plenty of midriff but she knows looking trashy is not what she wants.


Her boots are from another extraordinary designer—Bax Coen. One of the new set of animal prints Bax has put out, this is more fashionable slant on animal. In this case, the animal is the SoCal shopper with her stiletto heels. With its uniquely scripted fitting system and multi-texturing options, these boots are just what Char loves—versatile.

Char took a trip to the makeup counter at Curio and got a great free sample with her purchase. This pretty pink visage is Gala Phoenix’s offering to all who join the Truth District Update Group. Grab it now from past notices before it’s gone. (Look at those luscious lips.)

Finally, Char’s hair, which she (and I) love—a long breezy casually feathered ‘do from Kavar Cleanslate, available at Hair Fair 2011. When Char saw the cut and color, she said, “This is so Rodeo Drive, darling.”


In your velvet spaceship
I find it strangely comfortable
In your UFO of looooove.
Probe me, explore me, penetrate my mind
Take me to the galaxies
In your velvet spaceship, your sp-sp-spaceship.

Spring Fresh

Designers are introducing a bunch of new content for this spring, bringing a new fresh look to the season. (Now if the sun would come out….)

Spring Fresh

For example, LeeZu Baxter has been on a tear, producing new content like a woman on a mission. Are the hyacinths and tulips popping out of the ground inspiring her? This pair of shorts with their color-changing texture belt is a fresh look for spring. I show here with a burgundy silk texture but it comes with a whole handful of looks that can accent an outfit. I wear it with a gacha sweater from Memai Avon. Blessedly, LeeZu did not put loops on the belt so I could wear this sweater out.

Spring Fresh

Tricky Boucher came out with a new line of skins a month or so ago and I was remiss in not showing his group gift, which is truly lovely. Queue Marlowe just released a new set of sexy up-dos with her characteristic messy and sexy curls. Ikon Innovia has released new hazel eyes in five shades with his typical five sizes (there you go, Ms. Alchemi!) which are absolutely hypnotizing. And goodness, Bax Coen is hard at work applying her new metallic look to everything in sight—this time her Prestige boots. These are color changing and this particular set has three colors, all distinctively different. And as always, you can fit the boots via Bax’s brilliant fitting system.

Aether Captain

The underlying spirit of SL is the game. Many of us came to SL as former gamers, usually on video or computer games, oftentimes from social networking sites. Gaming is inherently social, so it all makes sense, and even if SL isn’t a game, we all understand “the game.”

Aether Captain

The role playing communities in SL are very familiar with the social game. They are all playing games in role playing—games that are complex and compelling, drawn off books and games and other stories. Perhaps there will be an RP community derived from a game like Todd Action’s newest, Aether Captains, which is a dice game.

I donned this outfit in honor of Todd’s new game. Trilobyte Zanzibar and blakopal Galicia, two of the coolest RL Burners in SL, btw, created this great ensemble for all you gamers and high flyers. With its ornately embroidered jacket and spirited scarf, it’s great fantasy garb from two great artists.

Aether Captain

I grace this ensemble with hair from Elikapeka Tiramisu. She has opened her new store—Elikatira, and it’s as exciting as you might imagine. I mean, hair—how worked up can someone get? Well pretty worked up, in my case. Elika doesn’t fail to delight—every single piece she has released is gorgeous and the textures are spot on. Welcome back, Elika!

I checked out Rhapzody Wilde’s store again as I was hearing some great stuff. I had not liked her first skins—the eyebrows had that sort of anxious look that doesn’t suit Harper. Rhapzody’s been busy, however, and she has a whole new room full of skins, including one that takes advantage of all the delights of layering alpha and tattoo layers. I love the unique touches Rhapzody has given this skin—from the full but not over done lips to the the moles on the skin.

A friend asked me today what “smexy” meant. I assumed that it was a combo of “smart” and “sexy.” The Urban Dictionary confirmed my assumption.


It’s a perfect description for JB Gazov’s newest offering—a smexy black leather corset made of separate sculpty pieces layered over system pieces, all offered with a great resizing hud. Between the seductive silhouette, the sensual leather textures, and the truly smart HUD, this corset is a the new generation of smexy lingerie for women in SL. I will note that you should not wear all layers of the system pieces—doing so leaves an odd shadow around the neck.


Note the HUD adjusts and positions the straps, cups, and ribbon on three different axes. I found the outfit fit almost perfectly upon wearing, though I had to push the ribbon in substantially. (I am guessing he left it out there so it didn’t get buried in the avatar.)


Look closely. Can you believe those are prims I am wearing on top? Now that you have taken a gander at that, reluctantly drag your eyes up to my face. Yes, my pretty face, courtesy of Tuli Asturias.  And check my tousled hip hair from Olli Braveheart. Hey, my eyes are up here!
