The Color of Truth

The Color of Truth

“The color of truth is gray.” ~ Andre Gide

The Color of Truth

The season is turning to gray, both at events and on sims. I visited the new Furillen build by Serene Footman, inspired by the RL Furillen hotel, to see a widely gray scene based on the “brutal beauty of post-industry with the natural splendor of Gotland island.” It’s a beautiful place for photoing, of course, and I will probably return again and again as I do with most of Serene’s builds. The Shiny Shabby inspiration theme is gray as well. I wore this darling outfit from Larcoco Mathy for Shiny Shabby, which is a one-piece mesh look that includes a texture change for the skirt, so you purchase the sweater color and you get a variety of skirts to match via the HUD. Senzati0n Domenitzo’s chic boots for Geeks n Nerds keep me safe from the snow while looking chic and Christel Morane’s bucket bag for Boho Culture Fair has a fabulous texture change HUD to mix and match the bag, handle, and ribbon for an ideal look.

The Color of Truth

Shyla Diggs has brought her beautiful art to the Catwa Jessica head and it’s breathtaking. With fine features, luscious lips and Shyla’s absolutely gorgeous eye makeups, the face is transformed and becomes unique. With face framing bangs from one of Kuranosuke Kamachi’s new hairs, it’s a stunningly beautiful look. Bastchild Lotus has made a beautiful necklace for the gachas at the Freak Show, one that comes with a center piece with all the cards of the tarot and if you get one of the two rares, you get a HUD with texture change for the beads AND for the center cards. It’s well worth pumping some change into the gacha to try to get it.

Boogie Oogie Oogie

Boogie Oogie Oogie

If you’re thinkin’ you’re too cool to boogie
Boy oh boy have I got news for you
Everybody here tonight must boogie
Let me tell ya’ you are no exception to the rule

~ “Boogie Oogie Oogie” by A Taste of Honey

Boogie Oogie Oogie

I got Erratic Rain’s new leggings and top for Uber and they made me want to boogie oogie oogie! First of all, the mesh fits skin tight to the Maitreya Lara body with nary a gap or sag. Second, it comes in eye popping colors and includes a color change HUD for the stripe on the leggings. I added Maxi Gossamer’s colorful and fun necklace and earrings, also for Uber, to the ensemble and found Toxxic Rhiannyr’s amazing funky boogie oogie skates, which made the outfit complete. Then I took myself over to Rollerballs for some skating fun (and a great disco stream).

Boogie Oogie Oogie

Roller skating was a big deal when I was a kid, and the whole set up reminded me of the sweaty, cotton-candy soaked fun I had zipping around. Add these poses from Luna Jubilee and Radagast Lexington, and I am a boogie skate queen.

Boogie Oogie Oogie

MissAll Sunday Lemon made this great side-flung high ponytail for Uber, which I wore in a bright pink to push the look to the top, and I colored my lashes from Thora Charron blue for that added disco look, which also made my blue eyes from Ikon Innovia for Shiny Shabby pop. Finally, I have one of Umazuma Metaluna’s lovely Lelutka mesh head appliers that she will have at the Arcade at the beginning of the month with boldly colored eyeshadow so I can boogie til I can’t boogie no more.

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!

On the Isle of Capri

On the Isle of Capri

Open my heart and you will see
Graved inside of it, “Italy.” – Robert Browning

The Isle of Capri

One of the benefits of living this life is that I have friends all over the world who travel all over the world. I have received purses from Singapore, spices from Croatia, and recently, photos of a Capri sunset. So while I am stuck at home with a new dog and hot muggy weather, I get an update on everyone else’s vacation. So I thought I would dress up in this tropical look to imagine my own vacation on the Isle of Capri. Start with this beautiful tropical print dress from Kim Lysette, which includes a texture-change HUD allowing several different tropical looks with coordinating belt. Then add the gorgeous almost-antique necklace Sigifaust is featuring at Shiny Shabby. It includes a HUD for switching out the metal pieces. Finally, shoes from Aleida Rhode, great wedges that fit both Slink and Maitreya feet.

The Isle of Capri

I couldn’t help but use the LeLutka mesh head applier from Monicuzza Babenco that she is featuring at this month’s Shiny Shabby. For some reason, I love in particular how she has managed to make a useful applier with makeup choices and a gorgeous skin and wonderful features that suits all the head shapes. Kuranosuke Kamachi’s newest hair was a perfect fit for this vacation look with great textures and with this particular color, a great fade to sunkissed, bleached ends.
