They’re My Friends

They're My Friends

All my life I’ve been searching for something
Something I can put my finger on
Baby, I’ve been living for the weekend
Baby, I’ve been living for this cyber soul

~ “Friends” by Band of Skulls

They're My Friends

I think Band of Skulls wrote this song for everyone in SL. Don’t we often come here just to be with our friends and let our hair down? Dance without having to dress up in RL, without having to drink or push in the crowds or find parking?

I’d go out in this dress from Freya OIivieri, which is one of six colorways she is selling at the Black Fair, which is opening on Friday. No, they are not all black, blessedly. There is some color in there. I particularly appreciated the embroidered skirt on this version. The dress comes with Lola appliers, but I chose to wear au naturel so I could show off the gorgeous necklace Freya is also selling at the Black Fair.

They're My Friends

My gorgeous hair comes courtesy of Mirja Mills, who is rocking mesh and making styles everyone can love. I love how this turns so well with this pose, one of the many Meccaa Resident is selling at the Black Fair, which opens Friday. I couldn’t help but wear one of Tricky’s Belleza Best Buy skins—it’s so perfect for this blonde look.

They're My Friends

Every Friday just about midnight
All my problems seem to disappear
Everyone that I miss when I’m distant
Everybody’s here

I need love ’cause only love is true
I need every waking hour with you
And my friends ’cause they’re so beautiful
Yeah, my friends they are so beautiful
They’re my friends

Picasso Baby

Picasso Baby

“I’m not afraid of dying. I’m afraid of not trying.” ~ Jay-Z

Picasso Baby

Jay Z, the rap star, the husband of Beyonce and daddy to Blue, is not just a rapper, entrepreneur, record producer, and rich man—he’s also an art collector. Recently he decided to do his own form of performance art called “Picasso Baby” at the Pace Gallery in New York. I first read an article about it in Vulture by Jerry Saltz and then found the video a couple weeks later. The critic, Jerry Saltz, loved it. “Maybe I was smitten by fame. I stayed for just about the whole six hours, and all I can say is that I don’t think I saw one instance where Jay-Z was not totally there, in the moment, working the energy.”

I was impressed by his summary: “I went in doubting. I left elated.”

That has nothing to do with what I have on except the idea of energy, giving and getting. The article said Jay Z would not put up with schmaltz—he wanted genuine energy and he fed off it for his performance. I really liked that idea. When I see stuff I want to blog, I am looking for that authentic energy… and joy in creation. Ariadna Garrigus continues to produce joyful work, it seems to me. This nightclub dress—translucent with shimmering silver stitchwork—is a case in point. She pushes her expertise with mesh by making this body-conscious see-through piece with matching mesh panties.

Le Fleur

La Fleur

“I will be the gladdest thing
Under the sun!
I will touch a hundred flowers
And not pick one.”
~ Edna St. Vincent Millay

La Fleur

Flowers fill the my world right now. The summer has been blessedly beautiful and perfect for flowers and other plants. My basil is absolutely magnificent; my impatiens are full and vibrant in my window boxes. I have a hanging basket of pink geraniums that is more flowers than leaves.

So I was attracted to a few pieces at the Love Donna Flora event because of their floral theme. First was this elegantly sexy dress from SamanthaSJones with big blossoming flowers and a great shape. Long sleeves that billow out slightly lead up to a sexy low cut neckline and a hem that pulls up in front and in back. I really love how Samantha uses texture on all her clothes. She doesn’t just recolor—she uses pattern and colors to create sheen and interest. This dress if one of her generous donation pieces for Love Donna Flora and comes in six colorways.

La Fleur

My shoes are also a donation for Squinternet Larnia from Gospel Voom. With a beautiful blowsy blossom print on them, they match the dress perfectly, and are blooming great with Gos’ great color match system. Fun poses from Lashae Karsin, also completely donated for Love Donna Flora, help me show everything off.

Aida Ewing is donating proceeds from a few skins at Love Donna Flora, but I am ashamed to say this is not one of them. I preferred how this red lip looked with the dark hair from Mirja Mills, featured at the Hair Fair (closing Sunday so get over there and help Wigs for Kids). With pretty blue eyes from Keiba Resident, available at the Seraphim Social, and a gorgeous necklace from Maxi Gossamer, this look is elegant and chic—hence not just a flower but “la fleur.”

Double Trouble

Double Trouble

A sister is both your mirror – and your opposite. ~ Elizabeth Fishel

Double Trouble

There were two sisters. They both had their father’s eyes and their mother’s figure but in that the similarity ended. While one was outgoing, the other was introverted. One was naïve and trusting; the other worldly and cynical. One was dangerously silly and the other was deadly serious. (You get the point here.)

They both went shopping at Love Donna Flora when it opened at midnight. The went in opposite directions—one to the left and one to the right, covering the perimeter of the sim, going from cart to cart. One chose the sexy brocade mini dress from Kiddo Oh and clicked the HUD for a crème colored dress. The other chose the same dress but clicked for the chocolate dress. Both loved the lace system piece with the dress, the bow at the collar and hip, and the gorgeous silhouette it created. Both were also delighted that 100% of the purchase price went to Squinternet Larnia as they discovered with most everything they purchased that day.

Double Trouble

With poses from Olaenka Chesnokov (meant for a premiere red carpet photo op but perfectly useful for other modeling), the sisters happily wandered the sim and found gorgeous skin from Amesha Jewell. Each chose the tone she felt best suited her—one a darker skin and one a lighter but with the same makeup—a wicked cat eyeliner and glossy lips.

Their wavy tresses came courtesy of M4r1lyn Magic but as one sister was more a winter and the other a summer, they chose accordingly and tinted their hair with his handy HUD to suit their desires. When they met up on the other side of the sim, they were astonished to see each other, discovering while they had differences, much was the same.

Double Trouble

“I was too young that time to value her,
But now I know her. If she be a traitor,
Why, so am I. We still have slept together,
Rose at an instant, learned, played, eat together,
And wheresoe’er we went, like Juno’s swans,
Still we went coupled and inseparable.”

Loving Donna Flora

Loving Donna Flora

“No one has ever become poor by giving.” ~  Anne Frank

Loving Donna Flora

The Love Donna Flora event is opening on July 25 and going to August 11 on one sim with over 130 designers. They are each donating at least one item with 100% of the proceeds from the sale of the item going to Squinternet Larnia. Many are donating much more. Squinternet has had cancer that has metastisized to her bones and because of her current treatments, her income in SL—which is her personal living income–has decreased while her expenses have increased. Cajsa Lilliehook, concerned for Squinternet’s well being, organized this event.

I first ran across Squinternet Larnia’s work in a small shop in what I am guessing was late 2008. I remember I was impressed by the variety of fashion and the creativity of the creator. She seemed to build each outfit as its own creation—no separate colorations—and she employed broad use of vibrant textures in varying proportions and shapes. She clearly wanted to push SL to match her vision rather than developing a vision from what SL had in its toolbox. She was mostly successful in her work. Her clothing was unique and exciting.

I remember thinking that it must be an Italian creator, and I can’t figure out why I knew that. I suspect it was the daring use of print and the playful approach to design. I remember gleefully buying an outfit that was proportionally tweaked—there were big puffy sleeves and a slim silhouette with a bright crazy print, but it all worked. In SL in 2008, that was exciting—trust me. Not a lot of people were toying with “fashion” as much as just making avatar clothes.

The first time I showed Squinternet’s work in this blog, I photo’ed a beautiful dress of simply system pieces in 2009 (top, glitch, skirt). It was excellent work. The piece holds to this day. (I wore it as I show here and got a few compliments when I went out.) There are no seams, there is proportion in the texture with an elegant color palette and shape. The texture doesn’t deform terribly on wearing (the shoulder straps are STRAIGHT!) and the whole thing makes sense. It takes a whole lot of talent to make system pieces sexy. Squinternet did it.

Loving Donna Flora

Squinternet learned that she had a cancer that had metastasized sometime around the time I was organizing Fashion for Life in 2012. When she signed on for FFL, I had no idea she had cancer. I was contacted by a friend of hers and then her to explain the diagnosis, and of course, I was concerned. I had placed a store for her and, receiving an offer from Cajsa Lilliehook to set it up in Squinternet’s absence, let it become a gallery for photos of Squinternet’s work in SL.

I had two creators that year out due to cancer. One would call me tearfully on Skype, in pain and on heavy medication, to cry about missing out on Fashion for Life. The other, Squinternet, rallied, and ended up setting up her store (and donating funds from her creations), despite the great uncertainty in her life at the time and the medication-induced fatigue and confusion she was experiencing. Leaving both stores there, empty or not, was a tangible reminder to people why they were donating to the American Cancer Society. Squinternet could have kept the news to herself and just ducked out. She decided instead to throw her support behind the effort when she herself was suffering. (Let me note I have many pieces in my inventory that were donated by Squinternet to various charities including Fashion for Life and Hair Fair. This wasn’t the first time she had done this.)

The core truth behind all this, folks, is that Squinternet has been dealing with this a long time. She has been looking down the long dark tunnel of not knowing what is next for quite a while. This is not a sudden diagnosis. I am guessing anyone who has had cancer will tell you it’s not the pain–it’s the uncertainty and the dependence on others that really wears them down, including the financial uncertainty. I doubt that the Love Donna Flora event will cover Squinternet’s expenses from her cancer; chances are, however, it will put a dent in them and give her some peace of mind so she can put her energies to fighting the disease.

You may feel uncomfortable giving a donation to an individual you don’t know. And certainly there are many other creators in SL who have faced difficulties without the same sort of assistance. Both arguments can be made quite truthfully. However, consider that you are simply tipping Squinternet for her fine work on the grid, giving her a bonus for all these years of sticking with SL. Or maybe it’s just kick back for all the things she so generously donated herself.

Or look at it another way: the creators selling you their items are the ones deciding where their income is going. In this case, it’s being donated to Squinternet Larnia. That’s their choice. Enjoy the lovely things they are offering. Dig in and go shopping!

I would like to give kudos to Cajsa Lilliehook who personally organized Love Donna Flora. She has undertaken a Herculean task—I would know as well as anyone. It’s a tireless, thankless job with no compensation. Lots of people have a list of “shoulds”  and “great ideas” that turn out to be ridiculously time-consuming and ineffective. Many have unsolicited advice and criticisms to offer. And some just like to create drama or pull attention to themselves. It’s not fun. A big thanks goes to Cajsa for doing all this.

Rosanne Rosanna Bandana

Rosanne Rosanna Bandana

If it’s not one thing, it’s another.

Rosanne Rosanna Bandana

The following is a very culturally specific reference to a TV character on Saturday Night Life. An example can be seen here.

A Mr. Roger Feder from Fr. Lee, New Jersey, writes in and says, “Dear Rosanne Rosanna Bandana, I heard there is something called a Hair Fair going on. Don’t they have enough with craft fairs and art fairs, car fares and state fairs, book fairs and college fairs, renaissance fairs and train fares, the fairest of the fair and the vanity fair? I know of air fares but what is this hair fair?”

“Well don’t you ask a lot of questions for a guy from New Jersey. Don’t they have fairs where you are? I guess nothing ever happens in New Jersey.”

“It’s very simple. Hair Fair is a yearly fair in SL where hair creators sell brand new hair with a percentage going to Wigs for Kids. Wigs for Kids makes hair pieces for kids who have lost their hair due to illness.”

“Once I, Rosanna Rosanna Bandana, lost my hair in a freak SL accident. I wore a wine glass and my hair came flying off. I can tell you, it’s not a nice thing. On some people, the system head is lumpy and smells funny. And you know, if you look close, some people have those lines in their skin where the face matches up to the head and it looks like someone sewed on their face badly or maybe used tape and you don’t know where they’ve been. Or their hair falls off and suddenly all you notice is that they have these squinty tiny eyes and a frown on their face like they forgot to wipe?”

Rosanne Rosanna Bandana

[At this point Sasy Scarborough interrupts. “What does Hair Fair have to do with that?”]

“Well you know, as they say, ‘If it’s not one thing, it’s another.’ If it’s not Hair Fair, it’s squinty-eyed frowners who forgot to wipe.”

Rosanne Rosanna Bandana

I went through this whole parody for Hair Fair. This year again I made a bandana for Hair Fair, with all proceeds going to Wigs for Kids. I named the bandana for the pun, of course, but also for the actress who played her. Below is my explanation:

“Thanks for purchasing this Rosanne Rosanna Bandana, named in homage to Gilda Radner, who died of ovarian cancer after a courageous battle with the illness. While she was not a child herself, she played childlike characters on Saturday Night Live in the US during the 70s, including Judy Miller, a little girl who pretends to put on a talk show in her bedroom (http://www.hulu.com/watch/3518), Lisa Lubner, a nerdy girl who is in love with a boy named Todd (http://www.hulu.com/watch/4142), and my favorite, Rosanne Rosannadanna, a New Yorker with an opinion about many things with the philosophy, “It’s always something…” (http://www.hulu.com/watch/4147).”

Rosanne Rosanna Bandana

I hope you purchase one. I kind of made the texture from scratch (though I used brushes from Falln Stock). Thank you to Vaalith Jinn for explaining how to preview the texture on the hat (nope, didn’t use a temporary texture).

Please buy one. I worked hard on this and this blog entry. I am certainly no artist but I did my best so some little kid who is sick doesn’t have to worry about people seeing her bald head.

Seduction

Seduction

Seduction is always more singular and sublime than sex and it commands the higher price. ~ Jean Baudrillard

Seduction

A long slinky dress in black with little flickers of skin showing, a strappy sandal, a sexy back, long wavy hair and deep red lips and nails. Who could be immune to this seduction? This incredibly sexy dress is a creation by Joeylin, who has exploded with gorgeous, sexy content since I last saw her shop a few months ago. The texture on this dress is peekaboo, as many of her textures are, though this is incorporated with the dress (the dress includes both lighter and darker skin versions).

I am wearing Gospel Voom’s latest shoe, the Eva. It’s a classic, old-school vamp with a stiletto heel. As always, the skin matching is a breeze with his special matched library of skins. I colored the nails red and ran out to get Jamman’s mesh nails, which I had been hearing a lot about in Fashion Emergency. With a special hud, I can adjust to three lengths and several colors of red with the set I bought.

Seduction

Tricky Boucher probably has the most seductive skins in SL. With soft and sexy features, the Shyla skin has a ton of attraction power, especially with the red lips I added from the set. Long wavy locks from Truth Hawks’ new collection soften the look, making me old-school movie star fabulous and Deco jewelry from Tiffy Vella adds elegance and completes the look.

If the Shoe Fits…

shoes comp2 copy

“For women, shoes are the most important. Good shoes take you good places.” ~ Seo Min Hyun

The news crashing the feeds and grid today is about the introduction of the new Gos Boutique line of shoes and feet. The main difference these will provide is an easier system for matching your skin to the shoes, making the very aggravating business of matching feet to the main skin almost effortless.

How does it work? Pretty simple—Gos has gathered the skin tones and settings for over 300 skins (and he will be adding more) so that he has done all the work for you. All you do is wear the HUD (show below). It will take you to a webpage (shown under the HUD) where your avatar is automagically registered with a password and where you can search for skins he has already matched and choose the correct skin. As you can see, he has already gathered quite a collection of well known skins.

Easy peasy. You click the skin you want. You sync the HUD, abracadabra, it shows up on your HUD. You click the HUD and it shows up on your shoes. Even ankle dorks like me can do it!

If the Shoe Fits...

HUD shown in-world

If the Shoe Fits...

Personal skin database

If the Shoe Fits...

Available skins

If your skin is not listed, you have a couple options—you can do a manual match using the hud, which uses a traditional spectrum matching grid with 17 base skin colors or you can register your desire for your skin to be matched on Gos’ blog here. He is working pretty busily on gathering more skins to be matched and most popular, of course, will get matched first, so even if you manage to match yours, register anyway.

You can store up to five skins in the hud, and the hud works from shoe to shoe with a simple sync. I honestly have not found it so easy to match skins, especially as I am particularly skin-matching deficient. The shoes are great because the database will never become obsolete—when someone comes out with a new skin, I can check and see if Gos has matched it yet and quickly click to match or send in a request.

And of course, the styles are amazingly gorgeous. I tried them with a variety of skins to show how the match comes out great every time. And oh man, how EASY!
