How to Disappear Completely

They were playing this Radiohead song on the stream at Furillen so I thought it was a perfect title for this entry. I put together a sort of eclectic look this time, starting with Paul Lapointe’s and Bastchild Lotus’ boho crop top, which they have reconfigured to fit Slink and Maitreya bodies. I matched it with short ruffle tap pants from TheAnnex for The Project Se7en and bowed platform pumps from Darling Monday with optional stockings (that I opted to wear) from Darling Monday, also for The Project Se7en.

How to Disappear Completely

I piled on the jewelry. First I wore Maxi Gossamer’s chic and elegant necklace and earrings for Fameshed. They are delicate but still make a statement. My rings from Aikea Rieko are a perfect accompaniment to my look with their elaborate filigree and gems. You get a HUD that allows you to change up the colors of the separate gems, which I love.

The thing women have yet to learn is nobody gives you power. You just take it. ~ Roseanne Barr

Taking It

I got my slave boy out (my male alt) and dressed him up for today’s photos because there were some great poses from Olaenka Chesnokov and Luna Jubilee and other things at ROMP I found, and I was loving my look. Start with this top from Annette Voight from ROMP, which I paired with a skirt from an outfit ValentinaEvangelista recently came out with and boots from Saki Galiazzo. Then I found these fishnet appliers from Bax to pull together the look. Mr. Alt has the sexy collar from Cheerno Destiny at ROMP and a harness that Baileymonster featured at ROMP a couple rounds ago and now has in her store. I think I made him into a right sexy pet.

Taking It

My skin news for today is Dam1710’s applier for the Catwa Annie head, a beautiful east Asian look that went on beautifully and takes Catwa’s makeup options quite nicely. I was pleased with the look of the skin on the face and body and look forward to seeing more of David’s work. My hair is a short unisex cut from Dura that just topped this look perfectly and added a sexiness to my girl that went beyond bows and ringlets.

And the Band Played On, Part 2

I need to get new headphones. In my previous post, I stated that the MadPea Cursed Collection did not play music. It does indeed! When the instruments are set on the platform, they play the music from this video, composed by Harter Fall.

Each instrument plays individually as well! So add to the animations, the beautiful mesh construction, the gorgeous textures and the scripting, and you get quite a bang for your Linden at the Arcade . Find out more about Harter’s work on the collection on their website.

And the Band Played On

And the Band Played On

No one can whistle a symphony. It takes a whole orchestra to play it. ~ Halford Luccock

And the Band Played On

When I received the Mad Pea Cursed Collection gacha set for this month’s Arcade, I wasn’t quite sure what to think. A mysterious message came with it directing me to open the packages with the enclosed tools and then rez all the instruments on the stage platform. As I opened each crate and box (which come with clever animations to replicate unscrewing or crowbarring or loosening bolts), I saw each beautiful instrument emerge and magically move to its spot on the platform, regardless of where I rezzed it on the platform. Very spooky.

And the Band Played On

I had to try each instrument, of course, and they are all scripted to be played as instruments with darling animations. I erroneously stated originally that they don’t play music but they do, which you can find out about here. Since I anticipated wearing the baton and stepping to the podium as instructed, I wore the tuxedo dress Fhara Acacia has at Shiny Shabby and accompanied it with Zuri Rayna’s drop dead gorgeous new jewelry set. I ran to Steffi Villota’s store to get her new Paige applier for the Lelutka mesh head because it was just so gorgeous and topped my look with Chiaki Xue’s messy but elegant ‘do.

And the Band Played On

Ready to go, I stepped up to the podium, baton in hand, and raised my arms. Rather than being “cursed,” the entire set is blessed with whimsy and joy because as the animation started, the instruments raised up on their own and began dancing around the podium with musical notes. I did a little animated gif below to show because a photo just couldn’t explain how awesome this set is. The whole set of gacha pieces, singularly and as a collection, has been constructed with such care and skill and whimsy that I would recommend you run out and jam that machine with your linden. It’s just so fun!

Surface Envy

The SL12B is creeping up and keeping me busy so I am throwing this blog entry out there and hoping you like it as much as I do.  This time I put together a more eclectic look, starting with the capris from Ariadna Garrigus that she just issued, which include a great texture change HUD to swap up pants and belt textures. I topped it with this provocative piece from Lalu Bonetto, which is part of an outfit she will be selling exclusively at Shiny Shabby (opens June 20). Glamistry just came out with these platform-platform Mary Janes with a fish hook heel for Kustom9. (Last time I saw a good hook in SL was with Eshi!)

Surface Envy

The spark to this whole look is Chiaki Xue’s newest hair for boys or girls, a tossed aside, chic cut that hides the eyes, but not the style. Inka Mexicola is coming out with a  new skin, which I am showing only a small piece of this time because I used bright lips from Constance Daehlie. And AvaGardner Kungler comes on heavy metal with these great earrings for On9.

Christmas Cheer—KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 19

Christmas Cheer—KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 19

At Christmas play and make good cheer,
For Christmas comes but once a year
~Thomas Tusser

Christmas Cheer

Kimmera Madison passed me her KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar gift a couple weeks ago with a smile—or perhaps it was a smirk—on her face. I opened the gift and carefully composed my face. A colorfully decorated sweater and green polka dotted blouse—how… delightful! This reminded me of so many holidays when my well-meaning but crazy aunt came to the celebration with an ostentatiously-decorated sweater, kittens and gifts knitted into the panels. It was the kind of sweater that could only be worn at this time of the year and only among loved ones where the humiliation would not be too great. Kimmera clearly worked hard on this—she made sure each button was a different color and even the back panel had gifts knitted in. Yep.

So when I had to pull this gem out to blog it, I needed a bit of liquid confidence. Conveniently, Cherelle Capra has made this decorative ensemble for the Black Dot event, a bar that issues white or red wine, a darling “tree” of ornaments and cute wall hanging. I served myself a glass of wine… or two… or three (really I have forgotten), and put the sweater on, donned the included knit cap with kitten ears (of course) and holly earrings, and pulled on Missqwerty Pevensey’s cute skin-tight jeans (hoping the cute butt would add the tiniest amount of sexy to this look). Senzati0n Domenitzo’s great little ankle boots add a pop of color.

Christmas Cheer

Sawsan Secretspy has come out with a new golden skin tone that I have rather fallen in love with and the beautiful makeup is my saving grace for this ensemble as I can look at my face and kind of ignore those floppy ears on top of the cap. Chiaki Xue has generously sent out her holiday gift, this short hair that is conveniently modifiable so I can tuck stray wisps into the cap.

Find Kimmera’s gift—a perfect entry for the ugly sweater contest at your local club—in today’s door on the KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar. And don’t tell her I suggested it was ugly. She meant well.
