Astrofiction

Rezzable is holding a science-fiction based show and sale on their Greenies’ sim, featuring a number of notable designers.

Astrofiction

Tekelili Tantalus was asked to participate, and he was a brilliant choice for this show. With his otherworldly designs and incredible building skills, few will be able to surpass his fantastic ensembles. This one, one of a set of six colors, is featured at the show. In typical fashion, Tek has combined prim armor and boots with a seductive silks belt and beautifully rendered system pieces.

The beauty of this outfit, however, is that the system pieces can be removed and you still have a great outfit, especially if you want to make your avatar show a little more skin…

Astrofiction

The skin I am showing, in this case, is one of a series of more fantastic skins from Mea Carnell. With it’s hand-drawn features, it is more illustrative rather than realistic, but it suits the graphic fantasy of Tek’s outfit. I accompany it with one of my favorite fun hair pieces from Helyanwe Vindaloo (fairy dust particles turned to off).

Life in Another World

There is a whole universe of people in SL: the role players, the ones who choose to draw a distinct line between their real life selves and their online selves. Refugees of WoW or Eve Online end up in our multi-faceted, flexible and very fashion-conscious universe. They bring with them their fantastic aesthetic and attention to detail. And RPers are served the goods in SL—they always get the good stuff!

Life in Another World

Take for example, Teklili Tantalus’ work. I first got turned on to Tek when I saw some of his jewelry in an Elven sim. Then I saw his great hair pieces at Hair Fair last year. Fast forward to this year, and through a fortuitous connection, we are friends!

Life in Another World

Tek sent over one of his latest pieces—Alecto. Based on Tek’s extraordinary imagination and artistry, his line of fantasy wear is growing. His textures are luscious, his building skills exact, his user-friendly approach ideal. For example, in this set, you are treated to multiple pieces that have been adjusted for the right attachment points. You receive 4 staffs—for left and right hands, animated and not.

Life in Another World

The prims fit like a glove. Tek explained that he had the AV mesh imported into blender and worked on the sculpts directly on it. He provides a shape but if your shape is not to the extreme, these will fit you as well. (They fit my shape perfectly.)

Life in Another World

Check out the details in this ensemble—the buckles, the curvy metal pieces, the gems. The bra fits perfectly, the armor needed no adjustment. The building is flawless. (If you visit Tek’s store, make sure you check out the rest of the build. There is an incredible cavernous world outside the store.)

Life in Another World

You get a variety of armor under which you find the spectacular system pieces (notice how I am getting more naked as this blog goes on…?) I was blown away by the system pieces. Not a seam. Only the best ripples. All hand drawn artistry. Amazing!

Life in Another World

I am wearing one of Pulse’s new fantasy skins. Lorac worked on these as a request from a customer and ended up with a brilliant set of skins—not just drow but several other colors (including a delicious Martian green). I topped this with hair from another brilliant creator, Helyanwe Vindaloo. Her extensive collection at Deviant Kitties is for the adventurous fashionista. With her incredible textures and creative and sexy hair, Helyanwe sets the bar high. This style is funky and elegant all at once.

Nightlife with DJ Jamie

I am at SLCC! Woot! It’s as fun as I could hope it would be. I am looking forward to being on a few panels for the Fashion track and looking forward to hearing others speak.

The Ciel sims, though I rarely visit them, are near and dear to my heart. Owned by Christo Larsen, the sims are a home to a group of gentlemen that have created their own family across the many miles and oceans that separate them by living together on Ciel.

Last year I had the pleasure of spending time with three of them—Xavier, Blaze, and Gellan—at SLCC. This year I am so excited to know that Blaze, Gellan, and now Jamie will be there. I have met up with them and Bri and his partner Pookie, and it’s like we never parted company last year. It’s so easy and so fun to be with these friends. If you, dear reader, ever get the chance to meet SL friends, do it!

And with this, I announce that DJ Jamie Ondeko will be spinning LIVE at the Odd Ball, Friday, August 14—8 pm PDT, Westin St. Francis Hotel, San Francisco, CA, USA. And I am gonna be there!!!!!

In anticipation of seeing Jamie, I visited him at Ciel while he was spinning a few days ago.

Nightlife with DJ Jamie

Christo let me rez a ball on Jamie’s booth. Jamie ignored me (not unusual :P). Jamie plays some excellent music. Check him out on the Ciel sims.

Nightlife with DJ Jamie

I have always loved this dress from *Punch Drunk*. Iris Seale tackled sequins—not the easiest thing to do. I always feel dressed up and glam, but not over the top.

Nightlife with DJ Jamie

I decided to continue the purple theme with hair from Deviant Kitties (with pixie dust ON), fabulous boots from my old pal, Storm Schmooz, and stockings from ‘nother pal, Grue Ling. (You guys never call anymore :( )
