Day Tripper

The season has started for day trips, a little drive in the car out to the country or The Mill, a pretty little sim with many whimsical country scenes for photoing. I wore a chic little summertime outfit. First Hilly Haalan has made this halter top with pretty bow belt with her awesome texture change HUD where she offers a bazillion combinations of color on different parts of the top. I paired it with jeans from Paul Lapointe and Bastchild Lotus, which have been fitted to bodies like the Maitreya Lara body. With texture change for the jeans and the belt separately, it’s a versatile look. Senzati0n Domenitzo’s super cute and sexy sandals with woven platforms. My handbag is Roslyakova’s featured piece for the upcoming Vintage Fair.

Deesselle Destiny has made this pretty skin for the Vintage Fair. With little moles and pretty brows, it’s a natural skin. She includes some great makeup add-ons with liner and red lipstick. I wore Glamistry’s cute sunglasses for driving and pushed them up with his great script. Long wavy locks from Mina Nakamura completes my casual summer look, her feature at Fameshed this month. What a gorgeous blonde texture!

KittyCatS has recently released the Maneki Dreams KittyCatS, a special line that they made with an East Asian theme. Each one has a different name, which you can find on its breastplate and its package, and if you look closely, the word dream is shown in Japanese on their fur under the flowers. Best of all, if you mate two of these pretty KittyCatS, you are guaranteed a MegaPuss with a special Maneki design of rainbow flowers on a black coat (it’s gorgeous). I took the kitties over to the Tatakai Tochi sim to photograph them wearing this darling dress from Culco, that she is featuring at the Color Me Project. If you look closely, the skirt is a bit translucent. I love the use of the kimono texture. I paired high heel mary janes from Glamistry with the look, a touch of innocence with wickedly high heels.

Deesselle Destiny has made some lovely applier skins, and this one is no exception with a gorgeous blush and optional eye liner and lipsticks for the Catwa heads. I believe she made it for another head but I think it looks fantastic on the Candy head. I found one of the gacha headpieces from SinfulSky for MadPea, which is featured at the Gacha Garden. AvaGardner Kungler is featuring this stunning necklace at On9 this month in several colorways. Hairology is open and MissAllSunday Lemon, the goddess of cranking out quality hair, has this darling side bun hair as her featured look this month.

I’m actually good

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).

Tilted

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!

The Door Ajar

Sands Leavitt pulled a double whammy recently with a sexy outfit at Uber and a great corset at We <3 RP. I decided to mix n match the two for this stunning look. Since Sands is a game artist anyway, he gets “materials” in SL and has included the feature with his mesh pieces, which you can see from the lights bouncing off the leather of the corset and jeans. (I took my photos at the beautiful Elysion and you can see a red lamp’s light on my hip and another light on my backside, diffused on the leather texture.) The corset comes in two pieces so if you wish to forgo the top part, you can have a single sexy corset for your look. I accessorized with ankle boots from Glamistry and the gorgeous geometric gacha jewelry Mea Carnell has out for Gacha Guardians. The 100 Block is opening on April 9 and Zozicon has great nail appliers for Matreya, Omega and Slink available.

The Door Ajar

Umazuma Metaluna is releasing this smokey-eyed skin at Collabor88 this round and once again, I am blown away by the beauty of the features and the sexiness of the makeup. I admit I tinted the lip a little using the Catwa hud colors and blending it so I had a deeper lip. My mysterious eyes are Uma’s feature for The Chapter Four. I have been waiting for new eyes from her and I am not disappointed! Mirja Mills has made this lovely braid with wisps that float about the face for Hairology, which is opening April 10. It’s almost, but not quite, a Lara Croft look.

Where to Be Happiest

Where to Be Happiest

“When spring came, even the false spring, there were no problems except where to be happiest. The only thing that could spoil a day was people and if you could keep from making engagements, each day had no limits. People were always the limiters of happiness except for the very few that were as good as spring itself.”
― Ernest Hemingway, A Moveable Feast

Where to Be Happiest

Spring has sprung at Frisland, where they have cleared the snow and teased the flowers into early blooming. Spring has come early in RL too and we are enjoying balmy temperatures and quite possibly the last of snow’s possibility (though one never knows). What better for spring than a pretty dress from Flutter Memel for Collabor88, one that is fit to the Maitreya body and includes a lovely pattern of mottled blues and pinks on white. I matched Glamistry’s newest shoes to the look with a gorgeous necklace from EmpyreanForge.

Where to Be Happiest

Kavar Cleanslate’s mystery HUD for his Arcade hairs includes some “special FX,” including one texture with crimped waves (pretty awesome). Skin Fair is going to be amazing with a zillion new skins and some skin makers you don’t see often, including Brendon Papp, who came up with this gorgeous look for the LeLutka heads, which includes appliers for Maitreya and other bodies and body parts. There has always been something so sublime about Brendon’s work and this is your chance to get a very unique look for LeLutka.

I made myself into a pretty angel for this post with Eilfie Sugarplum’s wings for Uber but mostly it was for Sands Leavitt’s darling look for Uber’s ethereal theme. I chose to wear his cute top with lace overlaying a tube top. It comes with a skirt but I chose Paul Lapointe’s sexier-than-hell leggings with the finest behind in SL. I clicked into this lighter purple shade to let that pretty booty show. I chose the purple/pink shades on the newest Glamistry boots to match to my hot leggings.

MissAllSunday Lemon  has created this gorgeous feathered hair for the Uber event, and I chose a beautiful ombre for my look. I added darling cherry blossom combs to my hair from Mohsin Paulino to match my necklace from Sigifaust. The best part of my look is Steffi Villota’s gorgeous skin for Tres Chic. I used her eye makeup from the HUD and then used Catwa’s lip tinting for my lips, both blended in. What a beautiful face Steffi has created for the Annie mesh head!

I had my posse with me at the Furillen sim. We rode into town and then parked ourselves by the Airstream Serene has put out (from Wavie Haller—one of my favorites that he made). These “cRaZy lOVe” KittyCats are the other Love Collection pets KittyCats is offering this season and they too include a special animation in them where they will rez you a blanket and special poses so you can enjoy them with a friend. We rode in on my cycle from Turluccor Mode, a brilliant piece that includes all sorts of fun stuff for riding (lights, engine, turbo) and a huge set of poses and animations for single and couples. And the bike is pretty cute with the purple tank.

The main part of my outfit is, of course, the rockin’ aviator leather jacket from Paul Lapointe and Bastchild Lotus. As always, Paul has created a solid piece with great style, perfectly fit to the Maitreya body (and others). Bast’s HUD gives a ton of options in colors and textures. I especially liked the tank add-on options with some awesome t-shirt graphics. The jacket, tank and bra come as a complete package with a kazillion options for colors—it’s a very fat fatpack. My short skinny jeans are one of LiuMiwa’s pieces for Shiny Shabby, rolled at the ankle and perfect with Glamistry’s latest bootie, which also includes a texture change HUD for a ton of options. Keon Xenda’s poses show a male model but they were PERFECT for this set of photos (truly—I just positioned myself on the bike).

Rolling Deep

Deesselle Destiny made this sexy skin for the Catwa heads and I chose to dress it up with lipstick from the Catwa HUD and eyeliner from demi Placebo to make this hot tough girl look. I also got to try out Deesselle’s eyelashes for the Catwa head. (Kind of fun just applying eyelashes and not having to fit them into place!) A pretty necklace from Ors Quan for Shiny Shabby is a perfect piece of bling for this neckline. I love this haircut from Dubled, which is a gacha at Shiny Shabby. Frankly, you should get all of them because the shortened bangs are darling and the windblown curls are perfect for a girl who just got off her bike.
