Patina

Patina

“[P]atina itself is worth appreciating. Patina is the value that age puts on an object…. It is experience, maturity, the soft sheen of time. Patina wasn’t present at the spanking-new creation. It comes from a life lived.” ~ John Yemma

Split Screen Installation is back and running under Dividni Shostakovich’s curation (yay!) and he has Rebeca Bashly’s piece, Chronophobia, up right now. It’s an awesome piece (as in fills one with awe) with pantina’d skeletons on crumbling pedestals high up in the air. This is why mesh is so great to have in SL—we can have art like this. I wore a dress from Faullon for Shiny Shabby, a sexy mesh clingy number that has a great texture over a great shape. Sometimes hips in mesh dresses are squared off but not this one—all luscious curves and fits like a glove over my Maitreya body. Senzati0n Domenitzo’s lace up high heels from Whore couture add some sexiness without sleaziness and Maxi Gossamer’s pearls for Fameshed finish the look with a touch of class.

AtomicSparkle Skytower will be at Skin Fair this year with her fabulous skins for system faces and mesh bodies. I love this beautiful look with a luscious skin on the body (though I am hiding quite a bit) and a perfectly made-up face to which you could add makeup layers. Mirja Mills is offering this beautifully flowing, pulled to the side hair for Hairology when it opens on the 10th. This dark blonde tint is gorgeous, I think.

I made myself into a pretty angel for this post with Eilfie Sugarplum’s wings for Uber but mostly it was for Sands Leavitt’s darling look for Uber’s ethereal theme. I chose to wear his cute top with lace overlaying a tube top. It comes with a skirt but I chose Paul Lapointe’s sexier-than-hell leggings with the finest behind in SL. I clicked into this lighter purple shade to let that pretty booty show. I chose the purple/pink shades on the newest Glamistry boots to match to my hot leggings.

MissAllSunday Lemon  has created this gorgeous feathered hair for the Uber event, and I chose a beautiful ombre for my look. I added darling cherry blossom combs to my hair from Mohsin Paulino to match my necklace from Sigifaust. The best part of my look is Steffi Villota’s gorgeous skin for Tres Chic. I used her eye makeup from the HUD and then used Catwa’s lip tinting for my lips, both blended in. What a beautiful face Steffi has created for the Annie mesh head!

Rolling Deep

“I usually travel with a posse. I roll deep. I travel like a rapper, but without the artillery. We don’t carry guns, we carry cookies.” ~ Gabriel Iglesias

Rolling Deep

I had my posse with me at the Furillen sim. We rode into town and then parked ourselves by the Airstream Serene has put out (from Wavie Haller—one of my favorites that he made). These “cRaZy lOVe” KittyCats are the other Love Collection pets KittyCats is offering this season and they too include a special animation in them where they will rez you a blanket and special poses so you can enjoy them with a friend. We rode in on my cycle from Turluccor Mode, a brilliant piece that includes all sorts of fun stuff for riding (lights, engine, turbo) and a huge set of poses and animations for single and couples. And the bike is pretty cute with the purple tank.

The main part of my outfit is, of course, the rockin’ aviator leather jacket from Paul Lapointe and Bastchild Lotus. As always, Paul has created a solid piece with great style, perfectly fit to the Maitreya body (and others). Bast’s HUD gives a ton of options in colors and textures. I especially liked the tank add-on options with some awesome t-shirt graphics. The jacket, tank and bra come as a complete package with a kazillion options for colors—it’s a very fat fatpack. My short skinny jeans are one of LiuMiwa’s pieces for Shiny Shabby, rolled at the ankle and perfect with Glamistry’s latest bootie, which also includes a texture change HUD for a ton of options. Keon Xenda’s poses show a male model but they were PERFECT for this set of photos (truly—I just positioned myself on the bike).

Rolling Deep

Deesselle Destiny made this sexy skin for the Catwa heads and I chose to dress it up with lipstick from the Catwa HUD and eyeliner from demi Placebo to make this hot tough girl look. I also got to try out Deesselle’s eyelashes for the Catwa head. (Kind of fun just applying eyelashes and not having to fit them into place!) A pretty necklace from Ors Quan for Shiny Shabby is a perfect piece of bling for this neckline. I love this haircut from Dubled, which is a gacha at Shiny Shabby. Frankly, you should get all of them because the shortened bangs are darling and the windblown curls are perfect for a girl who just got off her bike.

Love Birds

It is not only fine feathers that make fine birds. ~ Aesop

Love Birds

I walked out to the beach to find that it looked like a flock of lovebirds had taken nest in my palm trees. Oh wait. They purred and I realized they were KittyCats perched in my palms. KittyCatS recent release of LoveBirdS include a removable beak and crest and come with brightly colored feathers, made for Valentine’s Day but perfect to brighten up your spring after a long winter. Each KittyCat includes a special animation in them, where they will rez you a blanket and special poses so you can enjoy them with a friend.

Love Birds

I enjoyed the warm air in an outfit made of separates from the first anniversary Shiny Shabby. My top from evastika Aura is fitted for Maitreya bodies matched to denim shorts from Systi Cisse, also for Maitreya bodies. Cute bowed flats from Darling Monday come in several colors. A cute little diamond-studded watch from Bob for Shiny Shabby includes a HUD to change various parts of the watch.

Love Birds

Carina Larsen has made this cute and casual ponytail for Shiny Shabby with her great texture-change options. I am wearing Monicuzza Babenco’s gorgeous new applier for Shiny Shabby on the Catwa Annie mesh head in a warm tan. I found my palms at the RFL Home & Garden Expo from Cari McKeenan, who got them out late. The donation from purchase of the trees will go directly to ACS.

Manhattan Avenue

Manhattan Avenue

Oh but dreams come true on
Manhattan Avenue

~ “Manhattan Avenue” by Nellie McKay

Manhattan Avenue

The setting for this grouping of furniture from the RFL Home & Garden Expo and the first anniversary Shiny Shabby is deep in the city with Nellie McKay’s satin voice. Stephen came over and gave me a tutorial in color theory in decorating, starting with the deep purple sofa and chairs Victor Newchurch made as his donation items for the Expo. With yogjio’s deco fireplace as the centerpiece and Tess Spargel’s mirror over the mantle (both donation items), we accessorized with Piraiyah Novikov’s glamorous pieces for his gacha at the Expo. I clothed the windows with the city view with curtains from Piraiyah for Shiny Shabby (which I tinted slightly), and I topped the mantle with finials from Elsa Wellesley’s gacha at Shiny Shabby. Kaerri Rae makes some of the most beautiful flower arrangements in SL, and this orchid is one of her donation items for the Expo. (She also happens to be one of the hard-working organizers, with her partner Cain Maven and bestie Reven Rosca, for the Expo). I thought Synnaria Vlodovic’s gothic chandelier with purple roses might add a kind of a eclectic addition to the décor.

Manhattan Avenue

My Manhattan cosmopolitan might be dressed up for a night out in Hilly Haalan’s sexy mini with a color change HUD that allows me to tint the main dress a blackberry with fuchsia insets and pink studs. The one dress could provide hundreds of combos with such versatility. My jewelry is Mea Carnell’s contribution to Cosmopolitan Room, studded with rhinestones. Senzati0n Domenitzo’s sexy shoes for Shiny Shabby complete my look.

Manhattan Avenue

Monicuzza Babenco has created a gorgeous applier for the Catwa mesh heads for Shiny Shabby this round, and I spent some time messing with eye makeup and lipstick to make this look. VivienMarli’s beautiful and barely controlled tumble of curls gives a wildness to this chic Manhattanite’s sexy look.

Taking It

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.
