“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).

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

“How peaceful life would be without love. How safe, how tranquil… and how dull.” ~ Umberto Eco, The Name of the Rose

The Name of the Rose

Valentine’s Day is coming up so a long of roses are going to be gifted through Marketplace in the next couple weeks.I am wearing an outfit from Ariadna Garrigus that’s a taste of sexy for strolling the grid. With mesh jeans, a draped silky tank and a nicely shaped jacket on top, it’s a great look for going out or shopping. I wore Senzati0n Domenitzo’s boots for Shiny Shabby with it and Maxi Gossamer’s new heart-filled pearl choker for Fameshed. It has color change for both black and white.

The Name of the Rose

Not everyone on the grid is sold on mesh heads yet, and this skin is a beautiful look for a Valentine. This time she has blond brows, so I am able to wear one of Queue Marlowe’s gorgeous new lush looks with abundant curls.

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.

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

Trees are sanctuaries. Whoever knows how to speak to them, whoever knows how to listen to them, can learn the truth. They do not preach learning and precepts, they preach, undeterred by particulars, the ancient law of life. ~ Hermann Hesse

I am getting to the point in winter where I need greenery and warmth. SL provides that bit of break that I need. A search brought up this gorgeous new RP sim, Telrunya, where I did a little exploring and took photos of my newest outfit, which starts with Sands Leavitt’s dress for Uber. With materials features in the mesh, the dress is fitted to several mesh bodies and includes a bodacious booty. Sands can’t help but imbue his gamer’s aesthetic and experience in the outfit so here you see leather and a sort of fighter girl’s sexy toughness. I paired it with thigh high boots KenadeeCole recently had up for sale and Mea Carnell’s lovely necklace for Cosmopolitan Room.

Shylah Honey has made a sexy sensuous hair for this month’s Tres Chic, and I really love it and hope I see it on many ladies on the grid because it’s a keeper. I spent a lot of time switching around between the 40 colors on the light brown HUD I had (each one has that many) and enjoyed trying subtly different looks. Sawsan Secretspy is offering this gorgeous skin with stained berry lips at the new Bombshells event. Yes, it’s on my own shape and it feels good!

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.

Small Town Girl

Small Town Girl

“No matter what you do, someone always knew you would.” ~ Ami McKay

Small Town Girl

I went over to the small town of Crestwick and thought about my small town girl. She had a shopping spree at Shiny Shabby since it’s opened and got this darling top and skirt combo from Asia Rae that has some great details with textures that evoke movement in the skirt and a lovely soft drape in the top. The mesh is nicely and proportionately constructed so the top is feminine but not outrageous. (In other words, the breasts are proportionate.) I paired it with Meva Carnell’s awesome necklace from Shiny Shabby and shoes from xxsaltandpepperxx from Tres Chic that have the same chain motif as the necklace. (Funny how that works.)

Small Town Girl

And how refreshing to wear a skin on my own shape again. It’s like washing your face after wearing makeup all day. Umazuma Metaluna has created this darling skin for Shiny Shabby, with and without freckles. I opted for freckles for the small town girl look. A darling wavy hair from Kuranosuke Kamachi for Shiny Shabby finishes my look. I am quite pleased with my demeanor in this look, fully a small town girl.

The Afternoon Knows

The Afternoon Knows

The afternoon knows what the morning never suspected.” ~ Jonathan Grimwood

The Afternoon Knows

I took a walk at Flux Sur Mer on sunny afternoon (thanks to windlight, which I see left some shadows on my skins from the trees) and enjoyed the beauty of the sim and idle shopping. I wore one of Hilly Haalan’s new dresses, a cute mini that comes with a great texture-change HUD to allow mix and match between the top, skirt, belt and tie. It’s a fabulous dress, very versatile and sexy in a cute way. I wore my new necklace from Crashnoww at Seasons Story, a bargain with a texture change HUD for the gems in the necklace and pendant. A darling handbag from Natzuka Miliandrovic carries all my essentials (theoretically) and darling patent leather pumps fit for Slink or Maitreya from Saki Galiazzo that include a HUD that allows me to custom color three different sections of the pumps. They fit perfectly!

The Afternoon Knows

I am wearing one of Thora Charron’s new Swish hairs with an animated lock that moves as if a soft breeze is blowing. Mr. Beresford noticed it and thought it was done very nicely and naturally. (And you know, men don’t notice anything.) I have been experimenting with the GA:EG Adriana Mesh Head. It is Omega compatible, so I pulled out the applier Mallory Cowen created for the Logo mesh head as an Omega applier. I found that Mallory’s skin applied to this head beautifully and will please those who always loved the LAQ look. Then I pulled out the Add-Ons for the mesh head and installed them, which was lickety split. Wear the Add-on applier, click and it installs into the HUD. They have provided a variety of different add-ons including lashes, brows, liners, shadows and lipsticks. I used the lash applier, one of the eyeshadows and one of the lipsticks. Once installed they do come with options like translucency so I was able to make the pink lipstick more translucent so it blended with the LAQ skin nicely (since the lipstick is not quite the same shape as the skin lips).
