Well the kids are all hopped up and ready to go
They’re ready to go now they got their surfboards
And they’re going to the discotheque Au Go Go
But she just couldn’t stay she had to break away
Well New York City really has is all oh yeah, oh yeah
Sheena is a punk rocker
Sheena is a punk rocker
Sheena is a punk rocker now

A punk look is what I needed to have today because of this new jacket from Paul Lapointe and Bastchild Lotus, which includes a set of great designs for the back and of course, the add-on tank. The jacket has been made to fit the Maitreya mesh body as well as including all the standard sizes, and it’s rigged just perfectly to the body. I am wearing teeny tiny little shorts from Kinu Mayako that she is selling at the Thrift Shop for 50% off (as everything there is) and applied leggings from Tatyana Ultsch. Light blue boots from Moonbubble Gothly complete the look.

My skin is Umazuma Metaluna’s newest for Collabor88. All her skins for this round have parted lips, and I struggled with that. It’s very hard making the mouth look natural, in my opinion, and not making the avatar look like a mouth breather. I think, I hope, I managed to make the right tweaks to my face to make this skin attractive. My hair is Bubbles Clawtooth’s newest for Collabor88. I opted for the bright blue color to pop the look, and I fit Mayhem Seetan’s funky, jewel-encrusted headphones from On9 over the hair to just amp up this punk look with Maxi Gossamer’s almost vinyl platter necklace from Collabor88 as accessory. If you’re trying to get into Collabor88, give it a few days.

One more wonderful thing has come up: Thora Charron has made mesh lashes that fit both the LeLutka mesh heads and the system body. I have not tried them on the heads–in order to make lashes work on the heads with the competing makeups, some special things have to happen which I won’t explain here. However they look fabulous with a system head and fit me perfectly with very little editing. Your mileage may vary.

The Waiting

The Waiting

“Am I in love? –yes, since I am waiting. The other one never waits. Sometimes I want to play the part of the one who doesn’t wait; I try to busy myself elsewhere, to arrive late; but I always lose at this game. Whatever I do, I find myself there, with nothing to do, punctual, even ahead of time. The lover’s fatal identity is precisely this: I am the one who waits.” ~ Roland Barthes

The Waiting

The lover who waits. She bathes, dresses, and listens to the soft music, expecting her lover. Her chosen lingerie is, of course, from Mariska Simons, the queen of lingerie in SL, who is now converting some of her older pieces and making all of her new pieces with appliers. This outfit, which includes appliers for every body you can imagine as well as Omega, is a case in point of sexiness combined with new technology. Paired with Darling Monday’s shoes for the Mix Event, it’s a bold but sexy look. Lounging on Cory Edo’s modernist furniture for Uber makes the wait more comfortable.

The Waiting

Her skin is a combo of Aleida Rhode’s newest skin available at her mainstore with appliers for everything but the kitchen sink with eyeshadows from Izzie Button and lipstick from Carrie Janick. I am kind of digging the ability to mix things up this way on the LeLutka mesh heads, though I will say it was a bigger challenge finding eyeshadows I liked. I loved these dark eyes from Eleri Catlyn for my waiting woman. I wish more creators made darker, rather than lighter, eyes. Thora Charron’s long wavy sexy new hair in a bold color is the crowning touch.

Never a Wrong Time

Never a Wrong Time

“I don’t think there is ever a wrong time for a polka dot.” ~ Marc Jacobs

Never a Wrong Time

I just made the SL12B site (http://slcommunitycelebration.info) “live” yesterday and with all the moving parts in the site and in the organization, it was a bit of work, so I am ready to get outside for some fresh air and a little fun. (Please please join us for this great event!)

Spring is especially a good time for polka dots, and Moonbubble Gothly has colored my spring darling with this ruffled mesh blouse with polka dots. Available with a great texture change HUD that includes a plethora of polka dotted textures, the blouse is available at 100 Block, which means it’s discounted as well as exclusive. I paired it with jeans from Missqwerty Pevensey, also from 100 Block, in a great skinny style, and gacha items from Alia Whitfield, including a tote that has a texture change menu for the woven part of the bag. Sexy sandals from Senzati0n Domenitzo, which are fitted not just for Slink but also Maitreya feet (yay!) from 100 Block make me pink from head to toe literally.

Never a Wrong Time

Sopha Portal has made a series of gorgeous skins for the Black Fashion Fair, some in pale skin tones and some in deeper tones. With lined eyes and pale pink lips, they are pretty and sophisticated. The sets come with mouth appliers for various mesh mouths. I had to go to the store to get the body and hand appliers. Ikira Frimon made this darling cut for the Black Fashion Fair with her massively multicolor HUD. While it looks great in black, of course, it’s also darling in this bright pink. I love Polyester Partridge’s girly “normal” jewelry that she has been featuring at various events. This pretty pink gem is available at Kustom9.

Rainbow's End

Something bright and colorful for an unusually cold and cloudy day where I am. This great tie-dyed dress from Cortez Brandriss comes in several colors/patterns but I was feeling the hippie love so I got this one. Something about it just makes me happy. I accessorized with some great Indian-inspired jewelry from Dima Plessis for the Jewelry Fair, which is opening today. It came with a great texture-change HUD that allowed me all sorts of clicky changes to mix and match AND she did the fine service of providing a few prematched options. Love it all, especially with the bangles she has also made for the Fair.

My long braid is Mirja Mills’ newest with side-swept bangs and an interesting combo of braids rigged to the avatar. As always, you get Mirja’s great assortment of hair colors. My glowing skin is Sawsan Secretspy’s newest for the Suicide Dollz Event. Sawsan is going nuts with new skins, and they are all gorgeous. How does she do it?!

Did We Live Too Fast?

Did We Live Too Fast?

Did we live too fast in this fantasy?
Sandcastles were the walls we made
Did we live too fast in this fantasy?
It tangles and it drifts away

~ “Did We Live Too Fast” by Got a Girl

Did We Live Too Fast

How come I connote cutting edge, crazy fashion with Wicca Merlin? Maybe it’s her outre modeling and photography, her grasp of the possibilities of fashion rather than the realities, her desire to poke at the dark side and come out with something beautiful. I knew Wicca did poses but I just recently found out she also makes fashion, so I had to show you something she has created.

Her Abigail dress is testament to her very unique style. She cleverly covers a dress with a sculptural silhouette with a muted black on black modern brocade, allow the shape to be the boldest part of the look. Then she pairs it with a clever veiled hat with a big red flower and tendrils, like a modern flower arrangement on the head. Finally, zipped high heels (I always imagine a zipper or safety pin somewhere on Wicca) with spikes (of course) complete the look. I accented with red cuffs from Ivy Burner from the gacha at her store. (IM me to trade other colors!)

Did We Live Too Fast

I did a combo on my face with skin and lipstick from JunoMonteiro and then eyebrows from Eleri Catlyn. I was going for blue brows to make a crazier look but I didn’t want to detract from the hat so I ended up with the dark brows, which I rather like with this skin. The bold lips Juno includes with her skins are luscious and give high fashion and energy to the look. I went with the blue option on Queue Marlowe’s color HUD to change up this look a bit and lend some more of that high fashion energy to Wicca’s outfit.

Sonata

Sonata

“Music is … A higher revelation than all Wisdom & Philosophy” ― Ludwig van Beethoven

Sonata

I named this one Sonata because I was preparing this blog entry while I was at the House of Sakura, listening to the selections Lynn Mimistrobell chose for the evening. Every Sunday night, Lynn hosts a salon where she presents music, typically classical, and gives a lesson about the music, discussing its history, particularities and why she especially likes it. This evening she presented two Beethoven sonatas, hence the name of the blog. It’s an incredibly relaxing and enjoyable way to spend a Sunday evening, and Lynn clearly works very hard on her presentation.

The idea of a sonata suits this dress well as it’s a structured long piece of played music. Poulet Koenkamp has structured this dress based on classical notions of an evening gown—long, elegant, elaborate. Poulet has made this mesh gown with a beautiful satin texture, embroidered with gold in this instance (she has several colors of the gown) and hemmed in black to echo the black waist.

AvaGardner Kungler’s gorgeous necklace for La Metallique Fair brings out the richness in the embroidery. I couldn’t resist showing this piece, which is stunning with its almost art deco setting and large gems. My gold shoes are Tiffy Vella’s lovely stilettos for La Metallique, with color change gems on the decoration. I love the texture. She is offering several colors but this is the exclusive to the fair.

Sonata

Shylah Honey made this beautiful long hair for the Fantasy Collective. TOmmy Fairplay recently cooked up some new textures, which they have incorporated into this hair. With feathered bangs creating a coy sexy look, it frames the new face from Shyla Diggs’ latest skin beautifully. Shyla is presenting this version of the skin at the Liaison Collective for their Route 66 theme. With a deep tan, it’s perfect for girls on the road in the summer sunshine. It’s also lovely for an evening out.
