Spring Fresh

I’m feeling spring fresh in this outfit and with the fresh new looks from LeLutka. CrystalDoll Lemon makes all her mesh herself with her own textures, and I love this great lingerie dress with a strap slipping off the shoulder and a ruffle in front that she made for the Black Fashion Fair. Maxi Gossamer made the amazing necklace I am wearing for Black Fashion Fair as well, allowing you retexture the drop beads or the main necklace with her clickable menu. And Senzati0n Domenitzo has these fabulous sandals for the Maitreya feet (thank you!) at Shiny Shabby.

Spring Fresh

LeLutka has come out with another round of mesh heads with their updated scripts and features. If you were waiting to get a head because you were not entirely in love with the first set, you might find something you like from this set. I used the appliers from Monicuzza Babenco for showing the heads because I find them absolutely the same on each so you could see the individual shapes. I found I had to adjust my eyes for each, so yes, they do have different shapes. I topped it with one of Truth’s newest sleek hairs, one that shows off the face.

Lazaretto

Lazaretto

My veins are blue and connected
And every single bone in my brain is electric

~ “Lazaretto” by Jack White

Lazaretto

I love Jack White and I love his latest songs. The cutting edge of his song “Lazaretto” seemed to match this look, most of which I picked up at District 5. Start with a top from CrystalDoll Lemon from her fully-made mesh and textures. It’s sexy without being over the top (no pun intended) and suits the great plaid punk skirt Paul Lapointe and Bastchild Lotus made exclusively for District 5. The skirt is, as usual, a Paul/Bast wonder with a incredibly versatile texture-change HUD that includes dozens of plaids, leather textures, and metals for mix and match infinitum.

I got my cuffs in Moonbubble Gothly’s gacha. I lucked out and got the color I wanted right off. (Sorry, you didn’t make money, Moonbubble.) My awesome and bright platform boots with studs all over (to keep the ankle biters away) are Mikhayla13’s can be found at District 5 as well.

Lazaretto

My wicked skin is Lluna Nitely’s exclusive for District 5, a truly punk style with heavily lined eyes and glossy lips in several tones to match up with your outfits. The hairbase is part of the set Mina Nakamura is selling at Kustom 9, a unisex cut with a special set of textures including this terrific ombre, Look closely at my great necklace set from Lolly Carlberg. It’s also available at District 5 for a perfect punk look.

Today

Today

If ever there were a spring day so perfect,
so uplifted by a warm intermittent breeze

that it made you want to throw
open all the windows in the house

and unlatch the door to the canary’s cage,
indeed, rip the little door from its jamb,

a day when the cool brick paths
and the garden bursting with peonies

seemed so etched in sunlight
that you felt like taking

a hammer to the glass paperweight
on the living room end table,

releasing the inhabitants
from their snow-covered cottage

so they could walk out,
holding hands and squinting

into this larger dome of blue and white,
well, today is just that kind of day.

~ “Today” by Billy Collins

Today

It’s still National Poetry Month in the U.S., and since I have a moment here to share another poem, I will from one of my very favorite poets, Billy Collins. I keep two of his books in my Kindle at all times and read a poem every day the way my grandmother read daily devotionals. I can’t say enough about his work. Read the poem again. Enjoy it, please.

And today is the day when I want to unlatch the door to the canary’s cage and celebrate the sunlight with flowers in my hair. CrystalDoll Lemon is offering this darling dress in several colors at the 100 Block, and I was mightily impressed. She does her own mesh—this is not a template—and her textures are light and pretty. I love the evocative drapiness, the well-fit alpha and the lovely shadowing. I am definitely going to be checking out more of her work!

I paired it with Maxi Gossamer’s newest sandals, also mesh and also made by the creator without a template. I think I take for granted that Maxi does amazing work in mesh—she puts out so many great designs. I was absolutely delighted to see she is offering sandals for Slink feet now. My pretty necklace is from Ellantha Larsson, who is offering this as part of a set that includes face and belly piercings at the 100 Block.

Today

Truth Hawks has come out with this lovely hair that comes with several flower add-ons that he will be offering at The Seasons Story just in time for spring, but I chose to wear Jaycee Dover’s flower hair band from the 100 Block. My gorgeous skin is one of Shantia Soulstar’s lovely creations, beautiful without makeup but I felt that I needed to make it bloom with her add-on eyeshadow and lipstick. Today is a beautiful day!
