Every day is the day that you save me
Light into darkness
Cut on the sharpness of you

~ “Sharpness” by Jamie Woon

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.

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.

Mexican Chocolate Butter Cookies

Mexican Chocolate Butter Cookies

To cram big chocolate flavor into a tender, crisp chocolate butter cookie recipe, we found that cocoa powder—with a much higher percentage of cocoa solids than other forms of chocolate—was clearly the best candidate. ~ Cooks Illustrated

Mexican Chocolate Butter Cookies

Today’s cookie (which turned out excellently) is the Mexican Chocolate Sugar Cookie. Forget the sugar—it’s all chocolate, dark dark chocolate (thanks to Dutch process cocoa and instant espresso), with an eensy touch of cayenne pepper to give it a little afterbite. This is not your Grandma’s Christmas cookie. I thought the idea of the cayenne pepper touched cookie went well with this outfit, which includes a darling integrated shawl and top from AscendSL and a great set of leggings from Rucy Byron with feet shaped to fit Slink or Maitreya shoes and a texture-change HUD for three different neutral shades. I picked up a pair of boots made by InfinityStore that includes a texture-change HUD for the socks and the hardware and a scarf from xMike Deed from Thrift Shop at half off to complete my look.

Avenge is a new skin line made by AvengeStore, and she includes appliers for Slink hands and feet and Maitreya and Belleza bodies and tells me she will be working on Catwa and Logo head appliers very soon. The body is nicely detailed and the face is quite pretty with several makeup options available. She’s still getting things together but for a unique look that many won’t have, you might check her store. Bubbles Clawtooth features this wavy and wild hair at N21 with some great ombre textures she has made. The barrette includes its own color change HUD.

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!

My Bodyguard

My Bodyguard

A blond in a red dress can do without introductions–but not without a bodyguard. ~ Rona Jaffe

The Bodyguard

Allow me to introduce myself and my bodyguard, tucked under my skirt, lending intrigue to this look. Start with the darling dress from ValentinaEvangelista, styled with a full ruffled skirt and decolletage, which is deceivingly low. I paired it with sexy heels from Senzati0n Domenitzo and a choker from Takuya Jinn, which are both exclusives at Shiny Shabby, and of course a blade in a garter from Sion Bedrosian.

The Bodyguard

My gorgeous skin is Shyla Diggs’ exclusive for the upcoming Uber, a gorgeous, almost vintage look with luscious lips, beautifully defined brows (even in blonde) and her always gorgeous features. And I love the new hair Mirja Mills is featuring at My Attic. For a very low price, you can get this vintage ‘do with a texture change HUD, each featuring several tones. This one’s a keeper!

Pedestrian at Best

Put me on a pedestal and I’ll only disappoint you
Tell me I’m exceptional, I promise to exploit you
Give me all your money, and I’ll make some origami, honey
I think you’re a joke, but I don’t find you very funny

~ “Pedestrian at Best” by Courtney Barnett

I love this new song from Courtney Barnett, all punk and funny with a sweet touch of girly. I thought it suited this look, a lot of which I got at Thrift Shop 8.0. First, Cruella Pennell has made this fabulous dress from two different mesh templates, but she has made so much of these templates, one can hardly even think of what may have been made before. She has finitely and exquisitely textured these pieces with a pattern and leather insets. Putting the two together seems an effortless decision and pulling them together with such great texture work is ingenious. Best part? They are discounted at Thrift Shop 8.0! With these fabulous little booties from Senzati0n Domenitzo also from Thrift Shop, it’s a look that falls together.

I wanted to up the gothiness of the look without going overboard so Inka Mexicola’s beautiful skin for OMGacha combined with deep dark lips from Constance Daehlie that she is featuring at AnyBody plus Constance’s dark eyes makes a beautiful face, pale and glowing with the contrasting darkness without being chalky or dead. Kavar Cleanslate’s beautiful new ‘do for Collabor88 with a side-pulled ponytail and his fabulous new textures completes this beautiful gothy look.
