The Serpent

The Serpent

“And the woman said, ‘The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat.’” ~ The Bible

The Serpent

Bax Coen has just released her new thigh high boots, based on the latest technology she has exploited to create a boot that doesn’t need an in-world staff to fit. Her “Collision Bone Deformer” allows the boots to fit to your avatar, adapting to slider changes. (I am proof because my legs are often too muscular for many mesh products—these fit me like a skin.)

The Serpent

She has also included materials textures on the boots so you can see sheen and surface details. I have featured a video about materials that explains what they are. Most people don’t get it until they see it.

The Serpent

The best part is the boots are mesh, which means they move with you. Bax has been very careful in making these boots. A peek to the inside shows she has textured the upper lip. The boot bends naturally around the calf and knee so you don’t see the ungainly bending that is clear on so many mesh pieces that go over joints. Most people won’t notice this, but it’s a design marvel. They’ll just see how hot they look.

The Serpent

My serpent friend is Rogan Diesel’s offering for this month’s Collabor88. With three color options for the snake and 10 different poses with snakes wrapped around the torso, it’s a hot posing accessory. Even more convenient, the snake rezzes separately from the avatar, so you can use this snake for your self or others.

The Serpent

I am wearing a glittery bikini from One Bad Pixel’s recent release. With sexy side ties and a shimmering texture, it’s a snake handler’s dream, especially when set against the glimmer of a serpent. My necklace is AvaGardner Kungler’s latest offering for L’accessoires, which is celebrating their first anniversary this month.

The Serpent

My skin is one of Aida Ewing’s features in the latest Collabor88. I chose the freckles because I wanted a girl who was marked beautifully by nature the same way the serpent is. My hair is Tabata Jewell’s newest long wavy ‘do. She includes a HUD for texture changing with each color pack, relieving your inventory of carrying a multiplicity of pieces.

The Serpent

To beguile the time,
Look like the time, bear welcome in your eye,
Your hand, your tongue; look like the innocent flower,
But be the serpent under’t.
~ William Shakespeare

Every Day is Mother’s Day

I am a mother, which is not news to many. My son, who is 8 years old, is the coolest, most wonderful, most excellent child in the world (except when he’s sassy). As I have explained to him, he exists to be hugged and kissed, loved and adored. I am incredibly lucky to be in a position to love him and take care of him without undue stress or difficulty and he really is a good kid (which is no reflection on my mothering—I think he was swapped at birth). A lot of people pay lip service to motherhood on Mother’s Day; not my kid—he reminds me every day that it’s worth the effort.

Every Day is Mother's Day

So today is a casual look for Mom—cardigan and jeans. This goes to prove that it doesn’t have to look frumpy. Starting with a thin-gauge cardigan over a peek-a-boo camisole from Emma Gilmour, this look can get a mom kind of workout. Jeans are a black-tinted casual pair from Aleida Rhode and Dolce Blackflag’s new boots complete the look so that utility becomes fashionable.

Every Day is Mother's Day

This fresh and lovely skin from aida Ewing is a sophisticated but not overdone look for Mom and Truth Hawks’ newest long hair is a great style for a casual day. A pretty necklace and earrings from Mouse Mimistrobell accessorizes Mom perfectly.

Every Day is Mother's Day

Me: What does Mom always say to you? (I expected him to say, “I love you.”)
My kid: Go to college!

Keen for Green

Day two of the great Valentine Day gift hintfest for you dolts.. I mean, folks who need to find things to give your beloved ladies. I am starting early on this so you have plenty of time to pile up the ideas.

Keen for Green

Day two of your shopping trip takes you to a sweet little shop owned by VNP Ninetails. Push all the way to the back room. There you will find gowns based on a common photo sourced bodice with several variations. This one can be found in about 30 colors (!). Its virtues? Well there are the many colors available. I chose this amazing olive green (which always suits a redhead). I was concerned about matching shoes to it, but it comes with the shoes! Then there is that sexy sheen to the material. Photo sourced or not, it looks hot. And check out the back. Ay caramba! Between the strappy sexiness, the dip to the derriere and then that perfectly shadowed bum, well, dang! You can’t do much better. And it’s transferable! (Yes, folks, give it as a gift!)

Keen for Green

I accompany it with copper hair from Elikapeka Tiramisu. The skin is a luscious and glowing Alyson from Tricky Boucher. Look at those ripe lips and the beautifully drawn eyebrows (again, the eyebrows.. oy!) But check out the décolletage and the back. With a dress like this showing the sexiest areas, only the best will do.

Let me comment about the poses. I haven’t always mentioned them but this time I have to. I found Diesel Works at the Shoe Fair and have enjoyed Rogan Diesel’s work since. Rogan likes the female body, it’s clear, and he’s prepared to make you feel as sexy as a model as you can dare to pose.
