She Moved in Circles

She Moved in Circles

(She moved in circles, and those circles moved.)

~ Theodore Roethke, “I Knew a Woman”

Strap on a pair of roller skates and SL becomes even more fun than you’re used to. I wore these while skating around the Templemore of DreamSeeker sim and enjoyed the wide open streets and scenery. My skates are from Tya Fallingbridge, who makes them in black and white (presumably for boys and girls but I wore the black so it matched my ensemble). An AO from Sine Wave and I was a skating maniac.

My jacket is one of the pieces on sale (yes SALE) at LeeZu Baxter’s right now. With circles in the back placket, the mesh moves great with my skating tricks. Leggings are from Bax Coen, who has come out with a set of stockings and leggings, including this mod circled look.

My glowing skin with sexy cat eyes and luscious full lips comes from Tricky Boucher. The new Shyla is a beautiful set of skins from one of the masters of skin making in SL. Eyes are from Ikon Innovia, who is also having a SALE. My hair, with its sexy dark roots (and yes, sometimes I find that sexy—when it’s done right) is a bottle blonde from Kavar Cleanslate. Looks like our girl needs a touch-up on her roots soon.

One quick comment: my quotes come from one of my very favorite love poems by Theodore Roethke. Find it, read it, enjoy it.

When things get a little hectic (and they have been a wee bit lately), I do “downtime” in SL by doing something goofy. In this case, I threw on a pair of roller skates and toured my sims.


I got this dandy little outfit from the 10L sale on the Car Wash sim. Normally 250L (I checked the Onyxia Constantine’s store, where she has several other cute cute things), this little get up, perfect for rollerblading around a sim while engaging in detente in IM, comes complete with the funky gloves and stockings (including prim roll), bikini top and wonderfully outrageous skirt. Rush down to Car Wash because the sale ends March 9 and there are some really great things! (And the sim is terrific.)


The hair is a sweet little number by Toast Bard. You know, Toast comes off all ironic and obliquely funny but honestly, hair and clothing there is sweet and nostalgic. I love the wisps of hair falling in the face, the innocent daisies, the hair perfectly tucked behind the ear.

This skin by Gala Phoenix is the obvious choice. It’s youthful, glowing, fresh (and sexy with this little bikini top).


Finally, the skates. These funky roller skates (complete with skulls) come from Vasha Martinek (head of the Twisted Hunt, which is now going on). I wandered over to her shop, and I was blown away. If you want roller skates with skulls on them and funky bands and a kick ass vinyl texture over a platform heel, she has them in like 90 variations. You want acid green with black? She has it. You want black with orange accents. Got it. You need bright yellow? She’s ready for you. Additionally, she has some great gothic shoes, boots, hair—all of it fantastic and funky. I am definitely going back.

Let me give a shout out to my skating AO. The skates come with an AO override so you look like you are skating when you walk. However, if you want deluxe skating complete with stands that cause you to circle around and do all sorts of tricks, go to Sine Wave and get the rollerblading AO. I can skate circles around everyone else and frankly enjoy watching myself swirling around to the music as I work in other windows.
