The Wrong Side of Town

I can’t be hangin’ around
Love on the wrong side of town
~ “Love on the Wrong Side of Town” by Southside Johnny and Asbury Jukes

On the Wrong Side of Town

I went over to MadPea’s game on the Firestorm sims, the Ghost Town, where you can use the SL
“experience” to enjoy a game with ghosts. I didn’t play the game (yet) because I was too busy admiring the scene set up. MadPea always seems to excel in making the best of SL by pulling out all the tricks in the bag without beating you over the head with it. Make sure on a night when you’re looking for something to do, you get over there.

I thought it would be a perfect backdrop for this casual outfit from Beanster Potato that she is selling at the Hipster Fair. It comes with the sweater and tank, jeans and shoes and she includes jewelry but I wore Plurabelle Laszlo’s awesome necklace for the Jewelry & Accessory expo. A fringed purse from Plurabelle Laszlo for the same Expo echoes the fringes.

Skin Fair is coming!

Skin Fair Poster 2016 FINAL SQUARE

Sachi Vixen, the grand dame of SL skins, is offering this and another skin at Skin Fair this year. She includes appliers for Slink and Maitreya bodies, eye makeup, lipsticks, blush, freckles, liner, and lots of love. If you are a woman who has not converted to mesh heads or you like to take a breather, these skins are bound to make you look great! Bubbles Clawtooth is offering this wonderful style at the Arcade. It includes a separate mesh piece with HUD that allows you to have the scalp-revealing part. I might be the prettiest girl on the wrong side of town!

Years fly by, but the heart stays in the same place. ~ Harlan Coben

Same Place

I took a stroll around the charming residential neighborhoods of Hesperia of Templemore and enjoyed the brisk air and sunshine on the sim (despite no scripts on the sim–grr). A soft slouchy sweater from Hilly Haalan with a gorgeous knit lace motif (I have knit something like this) with a big scarf and sexy leather mini make an outfit that’s stroll-worthy. Hilly includes a HUD that allows 12 colors on texture for the scarf, 10 for the fringe, 12 for the sweater and as a bonus, a 12 color-choice skirt, all in one. Thigh-high boots from Beanster Potato complete my ensemble.

Same Place

Monyka Benelli has come out with darling earring sets at The Dressing Room: separate small earrings that you can position into place to complete a look. I used four earrings on my ears and with a little painstaking placement, achieved a multiple piercing look I can live with. Kuranosuke Kamachi has put this lush, almost vintage pageboy in the main store, and Sawsan Secretspy has created another gorgeous applier for the Catwa mesh head. It comes with several eye make ups and lipsticks and suits the Annie head perfectly.

I wanna live
with a cinnamon girl
I could be happy
the rest of my life
With a cinnamon girl.

~ “Cinnamon Girl” by Neil Young

Cinnamon Girl

I love this Neil Young song and I love my cinnamon girl. Start with this slinky sexy dress from Beanster Potato (which can be switched to a number of colors using her color change HUD, so don’t think you’re limited to this flavor). Add pumps, also from Beanster, and some gorgeous jewelry from AvaGardner Kungler, and of course a darling handbag from Miffyhoi Rosca for this round of Shiny Shabby, and you have a hot mama, nearly burning through the rugs from Kunst Himmel’s gacha for Shiny Shabby. (More rugs! Yay!)

Cinnamon Girl

The heat of this look comes from Shantia Soulstar’s gorgeous and soulful skin for Skin Fair. It comes with Slink and Omega appliers plus a few others. I spent a frustrating half hour trying to get it to work with the Love n Lust translators on one body (it was not coloring the neck fix.. bleah) so I switched to the Belleza mesh body and Slink hands and feet, and that worked quite well except the nipples, which don’t quite line up but who cares since I am dressed. The Omega is still hit and miss but well, still a deal at the price. I used the makeups available with the skin to create this smoking look and pretty nail appliers from Giela Delpaso.

Shylah Honey is on a roll with hair lately, and she is offering this sexy and beautiful style at the Fantasy Collective this round. With a lock of hair winding back up, it’s a different and new look in a standard silhouette.  My pretty ring is from Anthony77777 Bandit, who has captured the glistening qualities of windlight to make rings that glitter without scripts or bling.

The Chair

The Chair

A chair’s function is not just to provide a place to sit; it is to provide a medium for self-expression. Chairs are about status, for example. Or signalling something about oneself. That’s why the words chair, seat and bench have found themselves used to describe high status professions, from academia to Parliament to the law. ~ Evan Davis

The Chair

I really liked the chairs Tobias Convair has at The Liaison Collaborative, so I built a whole outfit around one. Tobias, whose main goal in life is to bring classical modernism and architecture to SL, has given another  The animation engine can be a bit wonky but the poses are original and different. I certainly appreciated the initial female sit, which shows a woman with a casual and sexy power. Rowr.

My dress from Beanster Potato is a sophisticated choice for this look. She includes a HUD that allows color change for both the top and bottom. I was a little surprised by the materials included in the mesh when I put it on ultra mode but it’s not too bad. The textures are terrific, though, and the dress is sexy in shape and style. I was able to wear Rebel Hope’s sexy sandals with the outfit (thank you, Callie) and one of AvaGardner Kungler’s newest pieces, based on elvin inspiration.

Shyla Diggs has further expanded her collection of skins with a set of beautiful looks for The Liaison Collaborative. Grab this group and the one at Uber and you get a full set. My sexy long hair comes courtesy of Mina Nakamura, who is exploring the face-hiding look with peek-a-boo locks with her latest releases. This beautiful look is at Kustom 9.

Melancholy—KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 14

Melancholy—KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 14

Isn’t it funny that at Christmas something in you gets so lonely for — I don’t know what exactly, but it’s something that you don’t mind so much not having at other times. ~ Kate L. Bosher

Melancholy

I have been spending some time wandering around SL by myself and rather enjoying it. There is something in me that needs time alone, and when I can view the beautiful creations in SL, I am often content. It seems melancholy but is a pensiveness that is sometimes suitable during a busy season. Barnesworth Anubis’ new gazebo that he is selling at Collabor88 is a perfect place for solitary contemplation.

And I am contemplating yesterday’s opening of Frost because it’s bound to be packed with goodies you want for a warm winter. This darling outfit from Lisanna Lauria is sure to please with a system top in several jewel tones that also comes with appliers and pretty skirts with sparkle. Tights from a gacha at Frost from Manda Schmooz keep my legs warm and beanster Potato’s great boots with a texture-change HUD complete my wintery outfit.

Melancholy

This shot accents the beautiful gift in the KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar today—a gorgeous bracelet from Abraxxa Anatine, the goddess of metals and semi-precious stones. Abraxxa crafted this beautiful bracelet with sodalite and silver so it can be worn year-round, not just at the holidays.

My lovely long locks are Ikira Frimon’s featured style for Frost and I love this look. With the face-framing locks and the great texture-change HUD, this style has a lot to offer. My skin is a glowing look from Inka Mexicola with blushing cheeks and a lovely green eye makeup. And I love these deep blue peepers from Constance Daehlie.

I’s a Muggin’

I’s a Muggin’

I’s a muggin, boom bada yada
Bom ba doo boo, we boopa dooboop
I’s a muggin’

~ “I’s a Muggin’” by Django Reinhart

I's a Muggin'

I chose this lyric and title because I’m mugging for the camera. Well, not quite making faces, but definitely feeling smug because Hannah Daviau came out with a new dress she named “Harper.” When I asked to blog it, she didn’t disabuse me of the notion that it was named for me, so let’s just imagine it is, and I am glad because it’s a darling dress with a great coming-winter theme. Since it’s knit, you could possibly wear it with leggings or under a jacket and enjoy its warmth.

My sexy shoes are full mesh from beanster Potato and come with a great texture-change HUD. And Zaara Kohime has made this absolutely gorgeous jewelry for Collabor88 with her exquisite textures and great mesh styling and proportions. I always loved Zaara’s jewelry in prims so I am excited to see she’s making it in mesh now.

I's a Muggin'

I am wearing the updated Belleza mesh body with all its improvements and I have experimented already with appliers, which seem to be going on quite well without glitches (though I wear none here). Today I made it easy on myself and wore the body with one of Shyla Diggs’ gorgeous skins. I always feel classically beautiful in her work. And my full hair is one of Shylah Honey’s great new styles, this one for We <3 Role Play with a big ponytail in back and those sexy bangs around the face.

Ruby Pearl

Ruby Pearl

Well, I’ve got a woman named a-Ruby Pearl
A be-boppin’ baby in a be-boppin’ world
She’s got the rhythm from her head to her feet
She knows at first every brand new beat
Ruby Pearl, hey, hey-hey, Ruby Pearl
Ruby, Ruby, Ruby Pearl

~ “Ruby Pearl” by Jackie Lee Cochran

Ruby Pearl

A be-boppin’ girl, our Ruby Pearl, with a great mesh dress from the just-opened Thrift Shop with all the great attributes of a rockabilly look. With a full mesh skirt (underlain with a cleverly-crafted alpha that includes lace at the edge), this dress with big blowsy roses is a lovely look from Blacknesslectra. To go from sweet to more rockabilly, I added a tattoo from Antonia Marat (still the best rockabilly I can find on the grid) and pearls and earrings from Plurabelle Laszlo, that will soon be featured at the Jewelry Fair. Finally, wicked stiletto shoes from Beanster Potato with a texture change HUD  for the little triangle insets allowed me to match my shoes to the look while having that edgy high heeled look that good rockabilly needs.

Ruby Pearl

Of course, the whole look was started because of this fabulous new style from Truth Hawks with the side rolls and long wavy locks. He made the hair in two versions so you get two for one in your box, but I preferred this look, especially with the fabulous skin that Sawsan Secretspy has made for the Unique Varied Event. She includes several lipsticks and eyeshadows and this wickedly great eyeliner with the skin. I wore the cleavage version with this dress because it makes sense. CarrieAnn Lemon’s great plain nail color set from the Thrift Shop completes my look.
