Future Club

“Turn me on with your electric feel…”

Future Club

First I start with an outfit from Sascha Frangilli. Her outfit is for a lady who wants to go out to the clubs but isn’t a cute little young thing. In fact, I find her outfits perfect for a fully matured woman (not old.. just not young). They are sexy without being slutty, pretty without being twee. Sascha often uses this bolero-sculpty combo to its best advantage and in this outfit, it matches up with several different bodice choices. I have chosen to style the outfit in a more futuristic look.

I got the look with a great hair from lat Oh. I have blogged her work before but Tatum Perenti convinced me to go back and get yet another hair from her, and I chose this porcupine-looking do to push this elegant club look into another century. Add to it this almost ethereal skin from Lion Jonesford and we no longer have your run-of-the-mill dressed-up-in-a-spangly bolero look.

Finally, these boots from ono Zinner. With this super fantastic needle-thin heel and zippers running all the way up the back, you can’t get much sexier or impossibly futuristic. (Yes, someday technology will let us balance on needles.)

My Secret Star Trek Fantasy…

OK, let me state right here, I am not a Trekkie (yeah, right). No really. I don’t watch it religiously, I can’t speak in Klingon, I can’t give you a riff on the differences between Capt. Kirk and the other guy played by Patrick Stewart, I can’t tell you squat about being a Vulcun or Volcon or whatever Spock was. Nevertheless, I always dug the outfits the women on Star Trek got to wear—and now I think I am ready. Ready to be a Star Trek babe.

My Secret Star Trek Fantasy

If I WERE a Star Trek babe, I would start with this sexy silver alien-skin swimsuit by monica outlander. Let me make something clear—doing silver in SL on system pieces is HARD. monica pulls it off and makes it sexy. Check out the asymmetry of this suit and the sexy back.

My Secret Star Trek Fantasy

I really put this look together for the hair. This hair is out of this world, literally. lat Oh makes hair worth looking at—they are science fiction marvels. Between the twirled horns on top, the locks curled around the neck, the spikes coming out the back, the medallion and the pin stuck through it all, Captain Kirk would be speechless before me.

Add to it the very beautiful skin from Minnu Palen, part of a new series she recently released. This time I went into 2.0 and wore the dark dark lipstick in this set (after I spent a half hour joyfully trying on different lipsticks.. boy that’s fun). Now how could Kirk resist?

My Secret Star Trek Fantasy

Finally, the boots. Those are the secret weapon. Remember how Kirk wore those sexy ankle boots? Well I have him beat. I have these dangerous stiletto heel silver boots from Babette Ultsch, another maker of amazing silver textures. And I CAN beat Kirk in a chase around the moon craters in these babies. It’s space and I am weightless, after all ;)

Jacked In

Ooo! I just watched my first episode of Caprica (do not spoil it for me!) and now I am squirming with the pleasure of this great science fiction series ahead of me, especially since I just finished Margaret Atwood’s The Year of the Flood.

There is a whacky discussion going on in my head right now, based on an article by James Fallows in this month’s Atlantic about How America Can Rise Again. It has to do with this notion of apocalypse or rather, how Americans face the current times and the future with a feeling that we are in decline.

I think a lot of the same malaise imbues SL, (and I am not talking about RP sims like City of Lost Angels or Midian) in the forums, the blogs, and the general chat. The Mentors are gone, the Homesteads are messed up, people are closing malls and businesses… yadda yadda yadda.

But Fallows has it right in his article, and I argue the same. “One look at the comforts and abundance of American life—even during a recession, even with all the people who are suffering or left out—can make it seem silly to ask about anything except the secrets of the country’s success,” he argues. “The typical American I see in an office building or shopping mall, stout or slim, gives off countless unconscious signs—hair, skin, teeth, height—of having grown up in a society of taken-for-granted sanitation, vaccination, ample protein, and overall public health.”

I can point to the same thing in SL: higher concurrencies, better stability, more beautiful and far reaching content than we have ever had before. Even the newbies look tons better (come on now—hardly anyone runs around with that freaky helmet hair anymore). SL is pretty damn good. Fallows’ final argument is that American history has a unique tradition of “cycles of despair followed by triumphant rebirths.” We are on the brink in this country, and I think SL is in line too. (And I apologize to all my readers from other countries—I would like to hear your thoughts too.)

This crazy opener leads into today’s look, a combo of high tech, future, and fantasy. Actually, it is all about being jacked in.

The content in SL is better than ever. Let’s agree on that. I show this amazing “kimono” from Selos Dae as evidence. From the amazingly sculpties, combining a fur with a full leg to the truly unique sleeves, upended and lined with fur, to the great streaming ties. It’s just a very funky and cool outfit.

I said this blog was all about the hair, however, and really it is (and not about the weird thoughts going on in my head). This amazing cyberhair made by lat Oh made my day. Not only is it shaped well, textured amazingly, and tremendously imaginative, but it is also scripted with a HUD so you can change color of the metal, the little round “lights” on the back, and the ends of the wicks AND you can control their glow.

My favorite part of the hair was the USB port on the earphone!! Oh imagine that, being able to jack right in to your computer. (It’s all coming clear now, isn’t it.. Caprica.. the future of the SL.. get it? OK, probably not, but trust me, it all has to do with this little USB port.)

I wear a futuristic skin from Mea Carnell who has a line of pretty groovy goth and futuristic women’s skins. And these little eyelashes from Keri Clip are my favorite because they have a little white dot on the bottom. Something about those dots is so charming.
