She’s a librarian. She found SL because she read about it in a magazine about library science. When she got there, she not only found wonderful library resources, but also a whole way of imagining a secret life that leapt off the page. Now I am not suggesting librarians don’t have such a secret life—it exists quite abundantly in libraries—in many romance novels, in academic texts, in histories and photographs, in reference books and databases. It’s all there but when she found she opened the book, it was a discussion between her and the author and nothing interactive happened. So SL became a place to bring out the discussion and explore her ideas and for once, embody her secret life. She created an alt, named her “Peaches,” cloaked her identity, and leapt in….

I think many people know this story very well. They come into SL for professional reasons and stay in SL for personal reasons. Ever want to be cinched up tight in a corset and wantonly walk around, collar on your neck, fishnets wrapped around your long legs, stiletto heels putting little dents in the floor, anonymously? Khurt knows the your need for corsets. In his store, every outfit starts with the prim corset and works its way through different themes. I wear here  corset with a subtle skull motif, tight little leather booty shorts, a cropped sweater and fishnets. Khurt offers steampunk, Victorian, romantic, goth—whatever your heart desires—all held tight with a prim corset that can be sized independently on the X, Y or Z axis.

She covers her eyes with a short wavy cut from Chiaki Xue (really meant for boys but works so well here). Her skin is aida Ewing’s newest (out sometime today) because, frankly, an anonymous alt should look as good as the main avatar, especially, when she’s out and about, living a second life.

P.S. If you EVER read down this far and read this on Sunday afternoon, Dahlia Lithwick, one of my favoritist writers, is going to be in SL AGAIN. (I just find it so wonderful that she embodies herself here—NOT anonymously.) If you would like to join in the discussion either via the web or in SL, you can either go to their webpage at Virtually Speaking Sundays or tp over to the sim and see Dahlia in real live pixels. She knows all the juicy bits about the Supreme Court!

She’s a brick—-house
Mighty mighty, just lettin’ it all hang out
She’s a brick—-house
The lady’s stacked and that’s a fact,
ain’t holding nothing back.

One of the fantasies of SL is being drop dead sexy. But what IS sexy. Some think it’s waif thin, some think it’s emo, some think it’s being model-like (tall, thin and strangely proportioned). Well I think it’s being “mighty mighty.” It’s easy to do in this amazingly-built corset from Khai Sinister. Between the sculpties on top and bottom (shaping the body) and the system pieces in the middle, this corset visually cinches the body in as a good corset should. I am particularly amazed at the details shown including the well-drawn buckles, the ribbon bows and the way the textures on the sculpties match seamlessly with the body. (I will note that I changed my shape for this. The sliders all got upped a bit.)

I am wearing Tuli Asturias’ new skin for the Gina series from The Dressing Room, which completes this smokin’ look. Tuli has come upon a clever idea here—sell the collection one by one to keep them coming back. The skins are beautiful and such a great deal—how can you beat 65L for something that looks THIS good? In the end, if she releases 10 of them a whole fat pack will be only 650L! It’s a no-brainer—go get the skins!

Smexy

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.

Smexy

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.

Smexy

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!
