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.

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

Amacci for Hair Fair 2015

Amacci for Hair Fair 2015

Yet more hair!

Amacci at Hair Fair 2015

One of the reasons I look forward to Hair Fair every year is because I get to see work by creators I don’t always encounter in my regular SL. Some are doing other things like clothing or jewelry or skins normally and make hair mostly for Hair Fair because hair is not their primary creation.

Amacci at Hair Fair 2015

Carina Larsen is one of those. While she does hair, she also does a bunch of other great content, so hair is simply not her main line, but gosh, when she does hair, she does it beautifully. She is donating a portion of sales from FIVE hairs at Hair Fair this year and each one of them is gorgeous. With two updos, two ponytails (one that is an add on for a hairbase) and one sexy long hair, you are bound to find something (or some things) that will make you happy. She includes a great texture change HUD with some fabulous textures. And her styles are classics—wearable, usable and lovely.

Amacci at Hair Fair 2015

Carina’s lovely styles combine perfectly with Nena Janus’ sublime applier for the LeLutka heads. It’s not a shape Nena has employed before (wider set eyes, poutier lips) but she was up to the task of making them look fabulous with her great skins.

Amacci at Hair Fair 2015

My lingerie, which you can see very little of, is a new little set from Mariska Simons, which includes appliers for every meh body you can think of and variations of the bra/panties/garters/stockings combo.

To Fly

To Fly

“The moment you doubt whether you can fly, you cease for ever to be able to do it.” ~ J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan

To Fly

It’s time for a little springtime fantasy, and Kiddo Oh’s sexy wrapped dress starts it off with beautiful side cut-outs for a bit of peekaboo. Joined with AvaGardner Kungler’s necklace for the Cosmopolitan Room and a crown from YukaChoco Magic from the Fantasy Collective (which closes soon!) and here we have a gorgeous otherworldly princess, one who still flies, especially with her darling pet by Sh0rtie, also from the Fantasy Collective. (The wings flap most delightfully as it sits on your shoulder!)

To Fly

M4ri1yn Magic made this very photogenic mesh hair for the Shiny Shabby event. It comes in the many colors and textures he offers with his hair on a handy HUD. However, I show it here in an ethereal white.

And the genesis of the look was, of course, Monicuzza Babenco’s fantasy skin for the LeLutka mesh heads. With 10 brow choices in black and white (which includes fantasy designs like the dots on my head and chin), 10 eye makeups and 10 lipsticks, it’s a beautiful fantasy applier for the mesh heads. Three tones are available: drow, vamp and then this grayish fantasy tone, which she calls “Zafiro.” She also includes eyes and body appliers, so I was able to put together this whole gorgeous look, and I had a great time testing out the many looks available. What a beautiful way to make a fantasy fly!

“But Sasha was from Russia, where the sunsets are longer, the dawns less sudden and sentences are often left unfinished from doubt as how to best end them.” ~ Virginia Woolf

Sasha

Shiny Shabby opened yesterday with a Russian theme. There are matryoshka dolls, Soviet propaganda posters, folk art designs and costumes, and a lot of vodka (thanks, Kunst). I made me think about what Russia means to me, and all I could think of were the White Nights and the persistence of the KGB that my grad school friend Alexei told me about when we would stay up eating potato pancakes he made and talking about his life in St. Petersburg. And then I thought about Oleg, the very loud Russian Jew who worked a few cubicles down from me, talking in Hebrew and Russian with the elderly people we were interviewing at our job, nearly yelling as they nearly yelled in return. Or I might think of Loreen Aldrin’s (RL Olga Zee—you must click it!) absolutely gorgeous voice and her songs when she performs in SL (join her group here where she gives away a free song every month).

The creators have outdone themselves with the Shiny and the Shabby. Pieces from Monlmanl’s gacha, a folksy dress with embroidery, kerchief and rose (and an apron with a texture-change HUD. Cari McKeenan made this lovely headpiece that has a menu with several colors for the flowers. SigiFaust made a set of rings that she has fashioned to fit several popular mesh hands with beautiful Russian-inspired textures. And Rucy Byron’s amazing boots with their incredible textures and mesh-work complete my Sasha’s look.

Sasha

I spent a lot of time trying on different hair colors from VivienMarli’s long locks for Shiny Shabby and finally struck upon this apricot-blond as a perfect color, reminiscent of a dream of a spring in the steppes maybe. And Monicuzza has fashioned a beguiling skin for the event that includes several brow tones, which is what made the look complete. I found the blonde was just perfect with this skin tone and the lips are beautifully rendered with a sprinkling of freckles across the nose.

April Fool

April Fool

Come you’re the only one
Come be my April Fool
Come come
Be my April Fool
We’ll break all the rules

~ “April Fool” by Patti Smith

April Fool

I love this song from Patti Smith, a gruff sweet song for an edgy look with its own bit of sweetness. The 100 Block opened yesterday and there are a ton of great looks at the “garage sale” they are putting on. Every exclusive item is marked down 20% or more. Like this hoodie mini-dress from Cynthia Ultsch, that is available in four colors and includes a HUD to texture the dress in different configurations, including the ties. The dress is made for standard sizes AND mesh body sizes. My boots are also from 100 Block, and they are Tatyana Ultsch’s offer, available in a ton of colors and also with a HUD to change looks up. They are custom mesh from Tatyana and yes, have been made for mesh bodies, including the Maitreya body. (Don’t they fit well?)

April Fool

I am wearing the Aria mesh head from LeLutka because Aida Ewing recently came out with makeup appliers for the head, and I wanted the chance to swap up a new look. Several in the collection are very specialized and avant garde, but this look is perfect for our tough girl with glossy red lips and smoky eyes. Ikira Frimon is featuring this darling braided ‘do with blunt-cut bangs at 100 Block, edgy enough for this look but cute enough to take the edge off our tough girl.

The Ocean Refuses No River

The Ocean Refuses No River

Sink into your eyes and all I see
Love is an ocean
And you for me

Sink into your eyes
Your eyes
Are all I see
Your love is an ocean

An ocean refuses no river
Ever so lonely
An ocean refuses no river

Waiting for the time when we can be alone together
Alone together
Eternally

The ocean, the ocean
Refuses no river

The ocean, your ocean
Refuses no river

~ “Ever So Lonely/Eyes/Ocean” by Sheila Chandra

The Ocean Refuses No River

A beautiful cosmic song of love and I have a gorgeous look to go with it. First I start with this luxurious silk look from LeEnfantTerrible, a silk robe over a very short tunic that is labeled a “dress,” but goodness knows it’s a short dress. I absolutely loved the textures she shows on these pieces, which come 2-for-1 at Chapter Four, so you get two gorgeous looks. The colors are vibrant, the style is sexy without being crass, and the feel is pure luxury.

I accessorized with a jewelry set Caelen Hancroft is featuring at 100 Block when it opens on April 9. All exclusive items at 100 Block are marked down 20% or more so you will be able to pick up this pretty mesh set, which includes a HUD for texture change on three different parts of the metal and the beads. Zaara Kohime has come out with gorgeously-textured ethnic bags, also made in mesh and done with her special touch of color. Available in a variety of colors, the bags can add spice to any look. Finally, Poulet Koenkamp is featuring these space age sandals at The Instruments with three different sets of color-change HUDs to give you a variety of looks.

The Ocean Refuses No River

Nicole Button has been going through her inventory of skins and upgrading them with new features, a full set of appliers (and I mean full set), brow varieties, several cleavage choices, and just a whole lot of goodness. I added her gloss to the lips on the pretty lips for this skin. I am wearing the darling hair from MissAllSunday Lemon from the Xiasumi School Fair, an anime-inspired cut with tendrils around the face. I love these bright blue eyes from Soleil Reid. Usually I am not for bright eyes, but these make the look with this gorgeous dress.
