I am no more

a Boy Scout and, besides,
could never

put you out—you
keep me on

all day like an iron, out
of habit—

you threaten, brick-
house, to burn

all this down. You leave me
only a chimney.

~ From “Song of Smoke” by Kevin Young


A piece of a hot poem for a hot look. (Oh gosh I love this poem from Kevin Young.) I went over to the Dark Style and picked up some sexy items including this lingerie from Tatyana Ultsch, who includes appliers for top and bottom, though I only used the top on my mesh boobs from Riann Maltese. (I think my bottom is fine enough as is.) Sexy shoes from Promagic complete the look over Slink feet.


My skin is one of Shyla Diggs’ lovely makeup looks on Tricky Boucher’s base. Love the details of the body, especially that lovely butt and the hip bones. My hair is Mirja Mills’ beguiling retro style for My Attic.

If I am looking a bit more voluptuous, I am in this outfit. I think to balance a big top, a woman needs the bod to hold it all, including a bigger waist and bigger hips. This look is luscious and sexy and absolutely smokin’ without being exaggerated or cartoonish. (Hint: a little fullness to the belly and butt adds to the plush.)

The Timekeeper

The Timekeeper

I must govern the clock, not be governed by it. ~ Golda Meir

The Timekeeper

For this “character,” I imagined a woman who keeps time, who controls time for a universe. To control the time would be the most powerful person and so she is stately and almost otherworldly. I start with a dress from Juno Mantel that she offered as a gacha in the Fantasy Gacha Fair (which is closed now—sorry). I hit the rare on both the gown and the ruff and just had to show it because I am so impressed with her work. Juno does fantasy with lush fabrics—satins and velvets—on mesh, presumably her own because I have not see anything quite like this anywhere else.

Graizioso Alekseev’s eyepiece is unique and defines this Timekeeper. Included in the eyepiece are separate scripts for the large eyepiece and the dangling watch which allow you to track the time in two different time zones (in this case, CST where I am and Japan, where Grazioso is). The tiny detail is amazing.

The Timekeeper

I chose Circe Ishtari’s close-cut bob in a red tone. Circe has been making a lot of hair as of late and she includes a color change script in the hair (without a HUD) to allow for texture changes. From “natural” to “fantastic,” she has a variety of colors. Rocketta Haven offers this gorgeous skin, very clearly her style with the full lips, the artistic eyes with a smudged, time-stamped eye and the winged brows. Audrey Lamede offered these eyes as a sampler to her group members. With eensy irises, they make this Timekeeper’s glow with premonition.
