A Woman’s Sword

A Woman’s Sword

“Apparently, a woman can only go so long without a sword between her hands.” ~ Sarah J. Maas, Throne of Glass

A Woman's Sword

Who said women can’t be warriors? I suited up in Sands Leavitt’s gorgeous armor for We <3 RP and felt instantly fierce. In mesh with materials in the textures, the armor is not just protective—it’s gorgeous. Instead of using his mesh chain mail underneath, I found that Tatyana Ultsch’s awesome top applier from the Jack and Jill Hunt, served the purpose. Long tall boots from Bax Coen in fitmesh with a metallic sheen adds quite a bit of sexy. Regal (and totally unnecessary but important for the look) wings from DeathRowDesigns make me look even that bigger and fiercer.

Even sexier is Solange Cerveau’s thong. While normally I wouldn’t feature something so itsy bitsy as a piece itself, in this case I have to highlight Solange’s great work on something so seemingly insubstantial. She has made the thong fit the major bodies, and it fits to a tee, as you can see. It also comes with a texture-change HUD so you can wear it with several outfits. She includes a “modesty” piece, a sort of codpiece for ladies, that allows the thong to be worn under skintight skirts to cover your mesh girl parts (for all those underskirt cammers).

A Woman's Sword

Shylah Honey made new hair for Fameshed that’s totally gorgeous with a great hairline and beautiful flowing locks. There are 2 million long hairs in SL (I might be exaggerating but not by much) but conquering that is another thing and Shylah has found a secret formula in this look. I am wearing Lara Hurley’s luscious skin on the Karin LeLutka mesh head and it’s absolutely stunning. Somehow Lara is able to work past the limitations of mesh heads to add a uniqueness to the look, imbuing them with beauty.  A Woman's Sword

I just updated my computer. New SSD and Windows 10. This is a revelation. It’s like getting your old car detailed and tuned up and climbing in to peel out down the highway. I am still uploading all my programs but it sure is great. Today’s outfit features Hilly Haalan’s sexy lace-hemmed dress. It comes with a texture change HUD that has a ton of luscious colors and fits my Maitreya body pretty well. I accessorized with darling slip on mules from Senzati0n Domenitzo and a gorgeous jewelry set from Zuri Rayna, which she has put out for your early Valentine’s Day shopping (hint, hint, guys). The set comes with earrings, necklace, bracelet and a gorgeous hair comb.

Crave

My beautiful applier is Rocketta Haven’s new applier for LeLutka heads. With a delicate face and a subtle touch, Rocketta has made a gorgeous and unique face for the LeLutka heads. Each applier comes with a set of shadows and lipsticks and an Omega body applier. You can purchase additional eyeliners and lipsticks separately. MissAllSunday Lemon’s lush hair for Fameshed makes my look complete. I love her new HUDs!Crave

~ “Sharpness” by Jamie Woon

Sharpness

This is one of my latest favoritist songs so gotta feature it as a title for the blog. It’s a sexy smooth song that goes well with this sexy smooth look that shows off the dress Flutter Memel is featuring at N21, a slinky sexy latex piece that comes in several colors and is fit to the Slink bodies or standard sizing. (Medium fit my Maitreya just fine.) With materials, it has an otherworldly sheen that goes above and beyond your normal latex. I accessorized with bracelets from Druunah Esherham, thanks to Pixy who sent them to me after I jammed quite a bit of linden into the gacha trying to get these. Shoes from Diamanda Allen, featured at Cosmopolitan, add the final bit of glitz to my look with a texture change for the ankle strap and the studs.

Sharpness

Monicuzza Babenco has made another one of her delicious appliers for the LeLutka heads for the Shiny Shabby event, and I opted to use the Karin head this time, mixing and matching eye shadows and lipsticks until I came upon a look I liked. I love Monicuzza’s appliers—they give you a lot of bang for your linden and her textures are beautifully done for mesh heads. One of VivienMarli’s lovely sleek hairs for Shiny Shabby completes my look. It comes with a great texture change HUD.

You’re here for a reason, you know

~ “A Beautiful Exit” by Miguel

A Reason

I wandered over to the Embryo sim to see if I could take some pretty photos. I put together this beautiful ensemble starting with the gorgeous top and skirt that Vix Nirvana features at Shiny Shabby. I really love the textures on the skirt and I wanted to give in to the bohemian flavor without reducing its elegance, so I paired it with Senzati0n Domenitzo’s fabulous shoes for OMGacha.  I took a trip to Seasons Story to find jewelry and found Ors Quan had this darling necklace and a gacha of cool rings, so I indulged myself and dressed up.

A Reason

I wore Inka Mexicola’s newest applier for the LeLutka heads, which she is featuring at Kustom9. I really like the makeup options on the LeLutka head—I was able to tiny my lips and choose the translucency and my eyes. And you see a slight smile, which I chose from the expressions menu. My bountiful curls, pulled to one side, are Nita Bracken’s gorgeous contribution for Hairology. And somehow my hair managed to stay beautiful, even in the rain at Embryo.

Rolling Out the Red Carpet

Rolling Out the Red Carpet

That red carpet has to be felt to be believed. ~ Willam H. Macy

Rolling Out the Red Carpet

I decked myself in red for the red carpet today in honor of Harper Ganesvoort’s 7th Annual Oscar Fashion Photo Contest. Every year, Harper honors the Oscars by soliciting photos from around the grid and awarding prizes for the best photos. She is offering more than 50,000L in prizes this year (yeah) with 25,000L going to the first place and money prizes being awarded to the next six. That’s a lot of Oscar gold (and considerably generous for Harper)! The contest runs from January 8 to February 28, and all the details of the contest can be found here.

Rolling Out the Red Carpet

Needless to say, I will not be entering these “photos” into the contest, but I sure enjoyed Harper’s suggestion we “imagine ourselves on the red carpet at Dolby Theater.” (I am kind of of mixed feeling about combining avatars with RL photos, and I feel guilty as heck for erasing Jennifer Lawrence and Cate Blanchett to put myself in their place.) I thought it was a fabulous way to show off this latex dress from Sienia Trevellion, which is her exclusive at ROMP and is available in two colors. I accessorized with pumps from Glamistry, part of a promotion that I explained in my previous blog entry. I probably should have gotten a piece of jewelry in there too but I was too excited to get this announcement out to find something. Hint: Olaenka Chesnokov has a set of “Premiere” poses at her store.

Rolling Out the Red Carpet

I was also inspired by Tabata Jewell’s glamorous, almost vintage style for Hairology this round. With rolls on top and a sensuous lock coming to the front, it’s a sort of old-school glam with a rockabilly twist. Umazuma Metaluna’s newest skin for the LeLutka heads, available at Seasons Story, is dressed up with lipstick appliers Uma features in her store and eyeliner from LotusAmbrosa. I thought it looked fabulous on the Ever but will easily play as well on one of the other LeLutka heads.

Nothing like a nighttime stroll to give you ideas. ~ J.K. Rowling

Evening Stroll

I took a stroll in the snow after a party the other evening. I felt pretty and festive during this week between Christmas and New Year especially with my new coat from Ariadna Garrigus, which comes with a texture change HUD that includes several gorgeous looks. I opted for the safe red with black to match my pretty little shoes from Apple May, which are her exclusive at Shiny Shabby. The only downfall to these shoes? They only are available for Slink feet. I got a pretty neck bow from Jellyroll on MP to echo the whole black bow thing I have going on and have a spiffy handbag from Aikea Rieko for Shiny Shabby.

Evening Stroll

Marcopol Oh is offering this skin at Shiny Shabby for the LeLutka heads and I opted to wear it on the new Simone. It comes with several lipsticks and eyeshadows but I preferred to apply a shadow from Izzie Button. Dressy earrings from AvaGardner Kungler, also for Shiny Shabby, give some holiday kick to my outfit. And Mina Nakamura’s casual but sophisticated cut for Tres Beau gives a sort of casual touch to an otherwise sophisticated look.

Freak–KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 22

I went over to the beautiful Elysion to take photos of this fabulous new dress from Flutter Memel. Available with three different color choice HUDs, the dress has a great look and fit. I loved wearing it with Maxi Gossamer’s elegant jewelry for Collabor88, which includes its own clickable color change gems and metals.

Freak–KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 22

I am ashamed to say, however, I needed to fulfill my mission of blogging every one of the KittyCats & Friends Advent Calendar gifts, so I snuck on to Elysion wearing Piraiyah Novikov’s gift for today, these adorable monster slippers. If you have ever seen Pira’s avatar in world, you will see that these slippers make total sense. I did match the dress to the slippers, yes. I had to because it’s very important. I am a freak.

Freak–KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 22

The other big news of today’s blog entry is the new mesh head from LeLutka named Simone. With an elegant face, fuller lips and high cheekbones, this should get a lot of ladies interested in updating their look. They have also refined the HUD a bit more with additional mouth expressions and eyes that can be changed to accompany smiles or frowns. I wore Monicuzza Babenco’s gorgeous new applier exclusive for Shiny Shabby on the head to show the beauty of its shape. Tabata Jewell’s stylish hair for Shiny Shabby is my up-do of choice, lending an elegance and sleekness to my look.

Strolling--KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 18

I took a stroll around Crestwick Island during a nice afternoon. This outfit from Hilly Haalan, made of pieces from her latest collection, show mesh used to its fashionable with a texture-change jacket belted over some terrific slacks. She includes the handbag with the outfit and several other pieces, so it’s quite a great buy. I paired it with Senzati0n Domenitzo’s shoes for Christmas on 34th Street, which keep showing up on my feet because they are sexy and fashionable (and giftable—hint hint, guys). Mea Carnell is selling this great statement jewelry set at Cosmopolitan Room with several variations on the necklace and bracelet for versatility.

My favorite jewelry today, however, are my earrings from AvaGardner Kungler, today’s gift in the KittyCats & Friends Advent Calendar. Ava actually offers this pair and another in gold (somewhat different) so you are getting two gifts from a very talented jewelry designer.

Strolling--KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 18

Inka Mexicola has come out with this beautful applier for LeLutka mesh heads, and I chose to wear it on the Karin head. I love the shading under the eyes and the luscious lips. I will say I tried the expressions on the head with this skin and they were not doing it for me. The perfect pout is the way to go. Tabata Jewell is offering this sleek full low bun at Hairology. I love the wisps of hair framing the face and the fullness of the style. She is the goddess who organizes most of it so give her some respect when you’re enjoying Hairology.

~ Mary Oliver

Prettiness–KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 15

I wanted to find a beautiful fantasy area for a sort of sexy snow queen and her pet and the Winter Sim at Kalamata fit the bill perfectly. My snow queen is a sort of sexpot too, so lingerie from Mariska Simons for Christmas on 34th Street made complete sense. A combination of a mesh corset and appliers makes the outfit beautiful and elegant, and it’s giftable so you can give it to a loved one or friend for the holiday. It also comes with a complement of jewelry, including the lovely crown I am wearing.

I did not wear the other jewelry because I received this beautiful gift from Belle Roussel for the KittyCats & Friends Advent Calendar, a set that includes a necklace, bracelet and earrings. The set also includes a texture change HUD so switch up various parts of the jewelry to match your outfit. I chose the ruby and pink because I wanted it to stand out on in this look. I really like it because it’s a very versatile and simply elegant set that could go with many looks. And I love how the bracelet hangs around the wrist with the heart-shaped charms dangling. It’s a fine set of prettiness for your holiday.

Prettiness–KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 15

Today is the last day of this round of Shiny Shabby and Marcopol Oh has this beautiful applier on sale at the event so run over there now to get it. It comes with several eye makeups and lipsticks in his singularly elegant style. My hair is Kavar Cleanslate’s gorgeous new ‘do for Collabor88, a face-framing style with a great low profile so one can wear hats or crowns.

I’d Like You for Christmas--KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 12

Some of my most romantic moments have occurred during the holidays. Maybe more are to come. That’s why it’s great that Erratic Rain came out with this absolutely drop-dead set of lingerie just in time for the holidays. With bra, panties, corset, stockings, and thong, it allows for lots of mix and match looks without the over-the-top showgirl look of a lot of lingerie. And it fits perfectly to the Maitreya body. I accessorized with Senzati0n Domenitzo’s fabulous pumps and the gorgeous earrings that Mirja Mills is giving as today’s gift in the KittyCats & Friends Advent Calendar. Lots of people know Mirja for her hair, but she also does other mesh creations, especially intricate jewelry, so it’s a privilege to receive these earrings as a gift.

I’d Like You for Christmas--KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 12

Umazuma Metaluna has come out with a set of sexy appliers for the LeLutka mesh heads for Collabor88, so I opted for the luscious toffee tone and enjoyed finding a most kissable expression on the head with the new Expressions feature. Thora Charron has created a line of animated hairs under the “Swish” sublabel and a lock of my hair in front moved slightly in a breeze. Astralia is offering this mistletoe hair piece at Christmas on 34th Street, a giftable set that you might give to a friend as a hint or wear yourself to gin up some romance for your holiday. Mr. Beresford was much inclined when he saw it on me.

I’d Like You for Christmas--KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 12

I took my photos at Elysion, which is a picture perfect sim because Syn Beresford (distantly related cousin, yes—talent clearly runs in the family) has created an adult atmosphere that includes beautiful dreamlike spaces and rollicking parties on the weekends. I am including a photo of the touching display Syn has built for the victims in Paris, a reminder to all of us that SL is entwined with RL, and we are all part of a bigger global community.
