Oh, why you looking at me again?

I love being so fly, pink and purple, soft and sexy. Ariadna Garrigus’ gorgeous new dress with a versatile texture change HUD fits the bill. I am especially happy that it fits the Belleza Isis body. I am disappointed that so many creators have not chosen to work with the Belleza bodies—the Isis is very sexy and curvy in the right ways and this dress, all my “assets” are shown to their best advantage. I was able to mix and match colors on Celena Galli’s shoes for this round of Mesh Body Addicts to make everything match up.

I wish Shyla Diggs was issuing more skins and appliers. She does the most perfectly beautiful looks with subtle makeups, sensuous creamy skins and an absolutely gorgeous body. If I had a skin I would choose to wear every day to look beautiful, it would most definitely be Shyla’s. With the Destiny Catwa head, it looks absolutely perfect, especially with Shyla’s sexy makeups. I chose to wear Mina Nakamura’s long center-parted hair because the textures are so terrific and the color is a gorgeous blond. I am so fly!

Intelligent Life

“I’m sure the universe is full of intelligent life. It’s just been too intelligent to come here.”― Arthur C. Clarke

Intelligent Life

With the Brexit vote recently and people still supporting Donald Trump, you really have to wonder if there is intelligent life on this planet. I am guessing another planet hosts smarter (and sexier) beings. My sexier smarter being took a trip to the Mesh Body Addicts Fair, which is the best place to be as it opens today. Mimikri Kit has made this cosmic peekaboo dress in several colors with a matching thong and optional tintable pasties. It is made to fit several mesh bodies and system bodies. Nuria Augapfel has created these amazing shoe/boots for the Fair with a HUD to change the inner portion of the wrap around areas to lace or fishnet.

Intelligent Life

My inspiration to be alien came from Nethya Emor’s skin featured at the Mesh Body Addicts Fair. With a blue and subtle pink tint to it, it gives an otherworldly look to an avatar. I applied it on the Catwa Destiny mesh head from the Fair (which seems stuck to me now), though it comes with Omega, TMP and many body appliers. I paired it with the darling braids MissAllSunday Lemon is featuring at Uber. They come with a hat that fits perfectly on this hair but it can be worn without (as I show here). Funky earring cuffs from Celena Galli at Cosmopolitan Room finish my look.

Summer has come, and it’s been spectacular. My son and I have a bucket list which includes lots of cooking (strawberry rhubarb pie, strawberry jam, peach cobbler, bumbleberry pie), biking, walking, festivaling (see the crème brulee below from Bastille Days), swimming at the high school, and huddling in the air during this heat wave. Tonight we took my cousin out for sushi after the big heat-clearing storms. I am exhausted.

Another wonderful feature every summer is Hair Fair, which benefits Wigs for Kids, and it opened on the 16th. As always, Sasy and Whimsy and Mel have put together an amazing line up again with a portion of every single sale helping a kid somewhere  by giving them a wig so they can enjoy their childhood and not worry about their hair loss.

Creme Brulee

Tommy and Shylah at Damselfly have always generously given for this event and I am showing three of Shylah’s gorgeous styles for the event. My updo is non-rigged, which allows me to resize it to fit the Stella mesh head from LeLutka. With a lovely skin from Inka Mexicola for Kustom9, I think it’s a high fashion look.

Creme Brulee

If you want to go fuller, this style has the look you crave and frames my face and other parts of me nicely (to show off the necklace AvaGardner Kungler is featuring at We <3 RP, of course).

Creme Brulee

And Shylah made this sleek longer style with a lock in front. I think the whole look is great with Zlyskritek’s darling dress for Mesh Body Addicts and Senzati0n Domenitzo’s cute shoes for Shiny Shabby.

I will try to squeeze in more Hair Fair looks as time and summer allow. Best to just get over there and give the kids some love!

Coachella is coming up, and I am pretty excited because they have a pretty good website with live performances on it. My partner in SL lives kind of close to the event so some day I hope I can actually go and mingle among the kids. (We’ll likely be the very oldest people there.) My weekly music dude, Clark at Noon Pacific, has a little page up with recommendations with a guide to Coachella, which includes Christine and the Queens and one of their songs I particularly like.

I remixed my Coachella look with some recent event items, including a darling top from Kinu Mayako for 100 Block that holds particular interest for me because I have been crocheting a lot of granny squares lately. It’s sexy and bohemian and matched Paul Lapointe’s and Bastchild Lotus’ recently redone capris, fitted to several mesh bodies. I accessorized with a darling necklace from Ors Quan and Sigifaust’s great ring gacha set that includes a texture change HUD for any and all of the rings as a rare, both available at Shiny Shabby. Glamistry recently came out with these higher than high heel boots that include a stiletto heel (which in retrospect would be impossible to wear at Coachella but look cute with this outfit).

I chose Oytebis’ skin for Shiny Shabby because I thought the smudged eye makeup under the eyes was idea for a girl who is wandering Coachella at all hours. It’s a few long days and nights outside and who has time to attend to her makeup? The great thing about Oytebis’ skins is that she includes appliers for nearly every kind of mesh head with them as well as system skins, all in one HUD (except TMP, which you can request from the HUD). A floppy hat to keep out the sun from Rucy Byron comes with a texture change HUD and fits on Mina Nakamura’s hair perfectly. The two designers hooked up to offer this great look at Epiphany, and I am glad they did because it’s almost impossible to get a hat to fit hair—this time they did it for us!

~ “How to Disappear Completely” by Radiohead

How to Disappear Completely

They were playing this Radiohead song on the stream at Furillen so I thought it was a perfect title for this entry. I put together a sort of eclectic look this time, starting with Paul Lapointe’s and Bastchild Lotus’ boho crop top, which they have reconfigured to fit Slink and Maitreya bodies. I matched it with short ruffle tap pants from TheAnnex for The Project Se7en and bowed platform pumps from Darling Monday with optional stockings (that I opted to wear) from Darling Monday, also for The Project Se7en.

How to Disappear Completely

I piled on the jewelry. First I wore Maxi Gossamer’s chic and elegant necklace and earrings for Fameshed. They are delicate but still make a statement. My rings from Aikea Rieko are a perfect accompaniment to my look with their elaborate filigree and gems. You get a HUD that allows you to change up the colors of the separate gems, which I love.

March came in like a lamb and went out like a lion for us with tons of wind! I am guessing that’s why Miffyhoi Rosca made this darling dress for The Project Se7en with the wind motion already incorporated. I struggled with it at first for photos but found a perfect choice in Isabeau Baragula’s lovely chair, also for The Project Se7en, which swayed gently in the breeze, hanging from Mitsuko Kytori’s bowed tree. The tree, which comes with tons of choices, including blossoms, wind levels, etc., can be multiplied to create a lovely bower, though one was enough for me. My little doll from Miffyhoi and I curled up for a daytime nap. The dress includes a HUD that turns the flower print on and off and the doll has a color change HUD included. Isabeau has built in a ton of poses for singles and couples and includes a bunch of texture choices for the pillows and seat. Pretty little flats from Lilo Denimore for Shiny Shabby complete my outfit.

Dreams by Day

Umazuma Metaluna still does system skins for those of you who have not been able or willing to commit to a mesh head, and as always, they are gorgeous. This one was made for a recent event (which I missed by a couple days) but is sure to be offered in her store soon. My wind blown hair is one of Bubbles Clawtooth’s lovely pieces, which I got on sale recently. A perfect style to go with my dress!

One of my favorite clubs in SL also seems to have one of the cheesiest names, so let’s just call it Teqi’s Sunrise and leave it at that for purposes of this blog. Teqi Falta, owner of one of the hottest sex clubs in SL, made this side club to feature Latin music and dancing and it’s really a kick, a great immersion into a sultry club with perfect dances and music.

I wore this dress perfect for clubbing from MoonCelestia for the Mesh Body Addicts. It fits to a T, as you can see, and comes with a great HUD for color change. Materials in the dress reflect the lights in Teqi’s club in a fabulous way. (Those same lights give lots of ambiance to the club but make it a stinker to photo there.) I found a cute wraparound bracelet from Sae Luan on MP to add a little gold to my look. I paired Senzati0n Domenitzo’s mules for Shiny Shabby’s next round (opens today).

Skin Fair is still on and they have removed those pesky script monitors so if you want to shop without worrying about that, go now. There are scads of amazing skins, including this applier set from Monicuzza Babenco, which gave my avatar a beautiful Filipina look, I think. Long straight hair with bangs from Ikira Frimon creates an elegance to my club look, especially since it comes with a wide variety of textures.
