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.

Cherry Bomb

When I was looking up songs for this blog, I found photos of Lita Ford today and man, she looks darn good! I hope I can be a cherry bomb at her age! That being said, I tried to make a bomb of a girl today with this dress from Tatyana Ultsch that includes a texture-change HUD for all sorts of choices. Matched with these spicy chic shoes from Senzati0n Domenitzo for Shiny Shabby and the simple and sexy infinity choker from Sora Tatham, this look is the bomb.

Cherry Bomb

MissAllSunday Lemon released this sexy hairdo with bangs at her store, and I would say the bangs make the look, especially over this LeLutka mesh head with its sexy eyes. Even sexier is the applier from Sachi Vixen with separate makeup elements that I played with until I got this hot look. Because of the great HUD for the head itself, I was able to adjust the intensity of the eyeshadow and give it a lighter touch, which was my preference, but I left the lips intense and sexy. Sachi has also made appliers for the Maitreya body

Good Morning!

Good Morning!

“Morning is an important time of day, because how you spend your morning can often tell you what kind of day you are going to have.” ~ Lemony Snicket

Good Morning!

I don’t know about you, but I am not a morning person. A lot of my mornings are spent still sleeping or reluctantly greeting the day. It’s a fresh start, though, and a great chance to start anew. Shiny Shabby starts another round today and with it come some fabulous new creations, as you see here. One thing I like about the event is the switch from “shiny” to “shabby,” the combination of sleek and new and decorative and old. As always, the décor is top notch, and I put out several pieces from this round to start the day off. Gachas from 22769, Zerkalo and NOMAD will fill your living space with beautiful pieces, including NOMAD’s rare bed with single and couples’ poses. Convair and keke also provide great décor sets, which can be pulled apart for different decorative looks.

Good Morning!

One of my favorite old school designers, Solange Cerveau, is back on the grid with some great sexy mesh pieces. Debuting at Festival of Sin II are skimpy mesh tops with texture-change HUDs that have been created to fit Slink and Belleza mesh bodies and regular avatars. I am so excited Solange is back! Apple May, another old school SL designer, is offering this cute denim mini at Shiny Shabby, also with a texture-change HUD for the belt. Little flat sandals from Hautecouturedesign are exclusives for the Cool and Vintage Fair, opening in a couple days, and Mea Carnell has created a lovely flowered jewelry set for the Cosmopolitan Room.

Sawsan Secretspy is featuring this lovely skin at Swank, and it matches all her appliers, including the Maitreya and Slink that I needed for this look. Two clicks and I was all set! I hunted down Funeral Plutonian’s dreamy eyes at Kustom 9 and donned a side braid from Kuranosuke Kamachi with its beautiful blonde textures.

Good Morning!

In the Sea

“For whatever we lose (like a you or a me),
It’s always our self we find in the sea.”

~ e.e. cummings

In the Sea

The theme for Enchantment this month is “The Little Mermaid,” and blessedly, instead of being inspired by a copyrighted cartoon, most designers opened their minds to sexier and more ethereal sea creatures. Kiddo Oh is presenting this seemingly basic black dress. I say “seemingly” because she has cleverly crafted the texture and dress so it’s beautiful even as you move into different poses (I am using Vestige Creations here). She has also textured the inside of the dress with a lovely purple so that you see peeks of it when you move. That’s craftsmanship, especially with the coordinating tentacle bracelets. You might think it’s just a black dress, but dress it up and it’s so much more, especially when you wear something as detailed as Mea Carnell’s exclusive for Enchantment, this lovely mermaid motif choker.

In the Sea

Inka Mexicola offers a beautiful new skin for Enchantment this month with subtly glossed lips and beautifully lined eyes. I paired it with Mina Nakamura’s windblown-hair from Kustom 9 in a fantasy white with dark roots. The curls provide movement without being a one photo look—you can actually wear this hair around and not look like it’s stuck in position!

Sheena

Sheena

Well the kids are all hopped up and ready to go
They’re ready to go now they got their surfboards
And they’re going to the discotheque Au Go Go
But she just couldn’t stay she had to break away
Well New York City really has is all oh yeah, oh yeah
Sheena is a punk rocker
Sheena is a punk rocker
Sheena is a punk rocker now

~ “Sheena is a Punk Rocker” as done by the Ramones

Sheena

A punk look is what I needed to have today because of this new jacket from Paul Lapointe and Bastchild Lotus, which includes a set of great designs for the back and of course, the add-on tank. The jacket has been made to fit the Maitreya mesh body as well as including all the standard sizes, and it’s rigged just perfectly to the body. I am wearing teeny tiny little shorts from Kinu Mayako that she is selling at the Thrift Shop for 50% off (as everything there is) and applied leggings from Tatyana Ultsch. Light blue boots from Moonbubble Gothly complete the look.

Sheena

My skin is Umazuma Metaluna’s newest for Collabor88. All her skins for this round have parted lips, and I struggled with that. It’s very hard making the mouth look natural, in my opinion, and not making the avatar look like a mouth breather. I think, I hope, I managed to make the right tweaks to my face to make this skin attractive. My hair is Bubbles Clawtooth’s newest for Collabor88. I opted for the bright blue color to pop the look, and I fit Mayhem Seetan’s funky, jewel-encrusted headphones from On9 over the hair to just amp up this punk look with Maxi Gossamer’s almost vinyl platter necklace from Collabor88 as accessory. If you’re trying to get into Collabor88, give it a few days.

One more wonderful thing has come up: Thora Charron has made mesh lashes that fit both the LeLutka mesh heads and the system body. I have not tried them on the heads–in order to make lashes work on the heads with the competing makeups, some special things have to happen which I won’t explain here. However they look fabulous with a system head and fit me perfectly with very little editing. Your mileage may vary.

The Waiting

The Waiting

“Am I in love? –yes, since I am waiting. The other one never waits. Sometimes I want to play the part of the one who doesn’t wait; I try to busy myself elsewhere, to arrive late; but I always lose at this game. Whatever I do, I find myself there, with nothing to do, punctual, even ahead of time. The lover’s fatal identity is precisely this: I am the one who waits.” ~ Roland Barthes

The Waiting

The lover who waits. She bathes, dresses, and listens to the soft music, expecting her lover. Her chosen lingerie is, of course, from Mariska Simons, the queen of lingerie in SL, who is now converting some of her older pieces and making all of her new pieces with appliers. This outfit, which includes appliers for every body you can imagine as well as Omega, is a case in point of sexiness combined with new technology. Paired with Darling Monday’s shoes for the Mix Event, it’s a bold but sexy look. Lounging on Cory Edo’s modernist furniture for Uber makes the wait more comfortable.

The Waiting

Her skin is a combo of Aleida Rhode’s newest skin available at her mainstore with appliers for everything but the kitchen sink with eyeshadows from Izzie Button and lipstick from Carrie Janick. I am kind of digging the ability to mix things up this way on the LeLutka mesh heads, though I will say it was a bigger challenge finding eyeshadows I liked. I loved these dark eyes from Eleri Catlyn for my waiting woman. I wish more creators made darker, rather than lighter, eyes. Thora Charron’s long wavy sexy new hair in a bold color is the crowning touch.

The First Week of August

The First Week of August

The first week of August hangs at the very top of summer, the top of the live-long year, like the highest seat of a Ferris wheel when it pauses in its turning. The weeks that come before are only a climb from balmy spring, and those that follow a drop to the chill of autumn, but the first week of August is motionless, and hot. It is curiously silent, too, with blank white dawns and glaring noons, and sunsets smeared with too much color. Often at night there is lightning, but it quivers all alone. ~ Natalie Babbitt, Tuck Everlasting

The First Week of August

Ugh. It is literally the dog days of summer for me right now, mostly because I got a new dog in RL but also because the weather has been oppressively hot (though it just turned cooler). This quote made so much sense to me—we are teetering on the cusp of summer now and about to plunge into fall. I thought this sheer topped, elegant dress from Kiddo Oh might put me in a better frame of mind, especially since it evokes a sort of glamour that never overheats. I used Ilaya Allen’s pretty chair for the Gacha Garden as my pose prop and the gorgeous new jewelry from Mea Carnell that she is featuring at the Cosmopolitan Room.

The First Week of August

Hair pulled casually up is the perfect look and Mina Nakamura’s style for the Gacha Garden doesn’t go over board in fussiness. I took out Sopha Portal’s appliers for the LeLutka mesh heads and had a ball trying on different makeups. I will caution that Sopha’s skins tend towards the very light—this “India” tone is like no Indian person I have ever known but is, nevertheless, very pretty, especially with her accompanying makeups. The HUDs are a little annoying. You need to wear one for the skin and then another to apply the shadow and yet another for the lipstick, and the versions on the HUD are merely names—not colors or photos of the colors or styles. I much prefer Monicuzza Babenco’s graphic HUD to Sopha’s. The better feature of the HUDs, howevr, is that Sopha offers a creaseless as well as a creased eye so you can choose your look accordingly.
