Boogie Oogie Oogie

Boogie Oogie Oogie

If you’re thinkin’ you’re too cool to boogie
Boy oh boy have I got news for you
Everybody here tonight must boogie
Let me tell ya’ you are no exception to the rule

~ “Boogie Oogie Oogie” by A Taste of Honey

Boogie Oogie Oogie

I got Erratic Rain’s new leggings and top for Uber and they made me want to boogie oogie oogie! First of all, the mesh fits skin tight to the Maitreya Lara body with nary a gap or sag. Second, it comes in eye popping colors and includes a color change HUD for the stripe on the leggings. I added Maxi Gossamer’s colorful and fun necklace and earrings, also for Uber, to the ensemble and found Toxxic Rhiannyr’s amazing funky boogie oogie skates, which made the outfit complete. Then I took myself over to Rollerballs for some skating fun (and a great disco stream).

Boogie Oogie Oogie

Roller skating was a big deal when I was a kid, and the whole set up reminded me of the sweaty, cotton-candy soaked fun I had zipping around. Add these poses from Luna Jubilee and Radagast Lexington, and I am a boogie skate queen.

Boogie Oogie Oogie

MissAll Sunday Lemon made this great side-flung high ponytail for Uber, which I wore in a bright pink to push the look to the top, and I colored my lashes from Thora Charron blue for that added disco look, which also made my blue eyes from Ikon Innovia for Shiny Shabby pop. Finally, I have one of Umazuma Metaluna’s lovely Lelutka mesh head appliers that she will have at the Arcade at the beginning of the month with boldly colored eyeshadow so I can boogie til I can’t boogie no more.

Baby’s Got Blue Eyes

Baby’s Got Blue Eyes

Blue eyes
Baby’s got blue eyes
Like a deep blue sea
On a blue blue day

Blue eyes laughing in the sun
Laughing in the rain
Baby’s got blue eyes
And I am home, and I am home again

~ “Blue Eyes” by Elton John

Baby’s Got Blue Eyes

Baby’s got all blue, starting with this elegant and sexy mesh dress from NataPorolo for Shiny Shabby that includes a clever fade to translucent hem and a stylish wrapped and ruched bodice. The texture is great and the mesh is nicely rigged. I wore it over the Belleza Venus body after a few adjustments to my shape and it fit perfectly (however notice my thin legs—reduced the muscular setting). I accessorized with Monica Outlander’s lovely pieces for her gacha at Shiny Shabby and slipped on wickedly high and ridiculously sexy shoes from Glamistry that he is featuring at Kustom9 with his incredible texture change HUD.

Baby’s Got Blue Eyes

AtomicSparkle Skytower has been making skins in SL for quite a while and now she is coming up to speed with appliers soon to come out for the Belleza and Maitreya bodies to match her skins and the Slink hands and feet appliers she already has. I tested her Belleza applier and it looks darn good, especially with this gorgeous skin that comes with tattoo makeups so you can switch up your look. My wild hair comes courtesy of Kavar Cleanslate for the Festival of Sin. I used his handy HUD to get a dark hair and then added blue streaks. He has some brilliant mixed color looks and fantasy colors as well. And the aforementioned blue eyes are from Ikon Innovia, his beautiful exclusive for Shiny Shabby with system eyes and his great HUD system for mesh eyes.

River—KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 9

River—KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 9

I wish I had a river so long,
I would teach my feet to fly.
Oh, I wish I had a river I could skate away on.

~ “River” by Joni Mitchell

River

Beloved Ruby sent over her KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar gifts—two gorgeous women’s winter coats and a men’s outfit with striped sweater—and Z said, “So let’s go skating!”

River

We had a wonderful time at the gorgeous frozen river/lake at Angel Manor. I was able to set the windlight to a late Sunday afternoon winter light straight out of my real life, so the skating seemed brisk and fun. We took a ton of photos between us. I treated a few of them in PS, which is not my usual, but they seemed so nostalgic.

I loved the gifts Beloved Ruby has made for the calendar, all of them lovely and truly generous and I had a great time finding the scarf from xxRyvenxx, the mittens from Izzie Button, and the tights from Bax Coen to dress the look up. Z had a fine time dressing his up for skating and both of us did tricks with our AOs all over the pond. Kaya Angel has outdone himself on this gorgeous build. It’s straight out of my own winter.

River

Shylah Honey has made this darling hair for the Winter Trend and it includes a HUD for changing the color of the headband as well as for the hair itself. The curls framing my face were ideal for this almost old-fashioned look. My skin was one of Rocketta Haven’s I got during the Skin Addiction Black Friday sales, a luscious-lipped, blushed pale skin that offset well with all the red I was wearing.

We had so much fun! More photos can be found on my Flickr.

What Barely's Wearing Today

Barely swears to me this look gets the chicks. I can kinda see why. There’s the studied insouciance, the combination of patterns and a sort of funky warm masculinity that shows a touch of boyishness and vulnerability, which is so Barely.

Caught in the Wild

Caught in the Wild

“So, I ask you. Who is the happier elf? She who has braved the seas of life and risked everything, or she who has stood upon the shore and merely existed?” (based on a quote by Hunter S. Thompson)

Caught in the Wild

As it’s known, sometimes I am too lazy to do my own blog so I pull in another avatar who has a fabulous look to stand in for me. Today I feature the avatar Omenapu, who so kindly offered to pose for me and write something up.

She is a tribal elf, wandering the demilitarized territory between two great civilizations. Stealing and hunting to make a living, and rarely mixing with humanity.

Much of this outfit was created by the masterful Pucca Firecaster, whose texturing and design of all things fantasy is second to none. And just begs to be layered and mixed.

 

Caught in the Wild

Don’t be afraid to play with attachments and mix-and-match accessories to achieve a style. Custom tinting is very easy to do on moddable items and can be all you need to tie an outfit together.

I tend to use only moddable items when making an outfit in SL. Very often, I will see a particular part of an item that I like, but do not necessarily care to use the whole item. I’ll edit a face and make parts invisible, and link and attach things in places for which they were not designed, just to get that certain je ne sais quoi.

Happy Halloween!

I had the lucky fortune of being asked to do photos for the SL splash page and Marketplace for Linden Lab. They chose two photos, and I think it’s only fair to give credit where credit is due on the great content I used to put them together.
