“Art is the lie that enables us to realize the truth.” ~ Pablo Picasso

The Lie

I took a trip over to one of the LEA exhibits, “Gravity is a mistake” by Eupalinos Ugajin. Apparently it’s still in construction, but it’s hard to tell what more needs to be done because it’s already a pretty cool display with all sorts of moving parts (careful you don’t get hit in the head or shoved out of the way by a moving prim while taking a photo). I wore Unitedcolorssteam’s gorgeous dress for Mesh Body Addicts, a fitmesh for several mesh bodies that includes a lace overlay on a satin underdress and has several options for texturing the lace and dress (including making the skirt completely disappear so you can wear the top with other things). It’s a lovely piece of work—especially the sheer top with pearls scattered over the bodice. Gorgeous! I paired a sexy pair of shoes from queenshop that she is featuring at Tres Chic with the outfit. They include a great HUD for texture change on the separate parts of the shoe.

Skin Fair is still going on with only a few days left. I put on this great Omega applier skin from Shantia Soulstar under her new brand name and discovered she has the body appliers at her shop for free. I applied the skin to the mesh head from Gael Streeter and ElleEtGance and then played with lipsticks, liners and lashes to create a look I liked. I used a texture from Kuranosuke Kamachi’s beautiful dark brown hair that included golden ends to match the gold glint in the lace on my dress.

One of my favorite clubs in SL also seems to have one of the cheesiest names, so let’s just call it Teqi’s Sunrise and leave it at that for purposes of this blog. Teqi Falta, owner of one of the hottest sex clubs in SL, made this side club to feature Latin music and dancing and it’s really a kick, a great immersion into a sultry club with perfect dances and music.

I wore this dress perfect for clubbing from MoonCelestia for the Mesh Body Addicts. It fits to a T, as you can see, and comes with a great HUD for color change. Materials in the dress reflect the lights in Teqi’s club in a fabulous way. (Those same lights give lots of ambiance to the club but make it a stinker to photo there.) I found a cute wraparound bracelet from Sae Luan on MP to add a little gold to my look. I paired Senzati0n Domenitzo’s mules for Shiny Shabby’s next round (opens today).

Skin Fair is still on and they have removed those pesky script monitors so if you want to shop without worrying about that, go now. There are scads of amazing skins, including this applier set from Monicuzza Babenco, which gave my avatar a beautiful Filipina look, I think. Long straight hair with bangs from Ikira Frimon creates an elegance to my club look, especially since it comes with a wide variety of textures.

May your pockets be heavy and your heart be light,
May good luck pursue you each morning and night.

Lucky

I have to say, St. Patrick’s Day is one of the luckiest days of my life. It is the day my son was born, 13 years ago, and carries a lot of significance for me, so I can’t help but feel I have the luck of the Irish. Supposedly some small part of my heritage is Irish (according to my grandfather, who wielded a shillelagh as if he were some expert, though I think there was some blarney in that story).

My over-the-top look is an explosion of joy and luck and happiness and a sort of anti-hazy-monochrome-photo-in-SL look. (I wanna blow your Flickr up with green today.) Start with Mami Jewell’s darling dress with mesh bodice and skirt and a polka-dot flexi skirt and headband. Add to that a variety of accessories from the Luck of the Irish Gacha from Depraved Nation, including a darling necklace from Paul Lapointe, a lucky handbag from Moonbubble Gothly, flowery sunglasses from Lyla Shepherd and under my skirts, a wicked Celtic garter to keep me armed. Pretty pumps with a great color change HUD from Shaleene Kenin for Kustom 9 class up the look.

Rocketta Haven made this darling applier for Skin Fair. Her looks are so candy-sweet pretty that they match the Catwa head perfectly. The applier comes with several lipstick colors (all pinky pretty) and liners. I decided to do up Calico Ingmann’s pretty ponytails for Hairology in the deepest green from her rainbow color set. Behind me is Nanda Marjeta’s gacha décor set for Luck of the Irish Gacha, perfect for an St. Patrick’s Day party, complete with ale!

Love as a Weapon

Love as a Weapon

Wasn’t like I was looking, wasn’t like I had a plan.
Sometimes you get lucky and it falls right in your hands.

~ “Love as a Weapon” by Little Scream

Love as a Weapon

Before we think the blog is titled some angsty thing, the song is really about using love as a good thing—as a weapon against darkness. That being said, I just like the song and the lyrics as I heard them had all sorts of goodness. More goodness is this sexy dress from Annie Melson for the Mesh Body Addicts event, a fitmesh for several mesh bodies, including the Maitreya Lara, slinky and sensuous and beautifully textured with a deep-cut decolletage. I accessorized with bracelets from Crashnoww from Shiny Shabby (round closing soon—get there) and high heels from AvengeStore, made of 100% original mesh and textures.

Love as a Weapon

Serene Footman has turned his sim, Furillen on Love of Life, into Radiohead-land. I am all for this as Jonny Greenwood is on my secret list of future husbands (along with John Dickerson and Neil DeGrasse Tyson). For years I named my parcels things like “Everything in its Right Place” and thought I was an isolated weirdo in SL, so I am pleased to find out I am not the only one. He is streaming non-stop Radiohead on the sim (probably induced by everyone poking him with suggestions for songs, including my request for “Jigsaw Falling into Place”) and people are taking Radiohead-themed photos. Maybe I will get to take my own….

That being said, Skin Fair 2016 is still going on and still packed as far as I know. They promise to remove those crazy script things later in the Fair for those of you who find them onerous, so plan on getting over there later rather than never. Grabbing demos from the Pale Girl Productions Info Group will help your shopping as you can try them on at home without all the hassle. I am wearing AvengeStore’s applier for the Skin Fair, a gorgeous, sexy sophisticated look that makes the Catwa Jessica mesh head look great. My long wavy locks are Shylah Honey’s featured piece for Hairology with a great set of textures for massive variation.

Where to Be Happiest

Where to Be Happiest

“When spring came, even the false spring, there were no problems except where to be happiest. The only thing that could spoil a day was people and if you could keep from making engagements, each day had no limits. People were always the limiters of happiness except for the very few that were as good as spring itself.”
― Ernest Hemingway, A Moveable Feast

Where to Be Happiest

Spring has sprung at Frisland, where they have cleared the snow and teased the flowers into early blooming. Spring has come early in RL too and we are enjoying balmy temperatures and quite possibly the last of snow’s possibility (though one never knows). What better for spring than a pretty dress from Flutter Memel for Collabor88, one that is fit to the Maitreya body and includes a lovely pattern of mottled blues and pinks on white. I matched Glamistry’s newest shoes to the look with a gorgeous necklace from EmpyreanForge.

Where to Be Happiest

Kavar Cleanslate’s mystery HUD for his Arcade hairs includes some “special FX,” including one texture with crimped waves (pretty awesome). Skin Fair is going to be amazing with a zillion new skins and some skin makers you don’t see often, including Brendon Papp, who came up with this gorgeous look for the LeLutka heads, which includes appliers for Maitreya and other bodies and body parts. There has always been something so sublime about Brendon’s work and this is your chance to get a very unique look for LeLutka.

I can’t be hangin’ around
Love on the wrong side of town
~ “Love on the Wrong Side of Town” by Southside Johnny and Asbury Jukes

On the Wrong Side of Town

I went over to MadPea’s game on the Firestorm sims, the Ghost Town, where you can use the SL
“experience” to enjoy a game with ghosts. I didn’t play the game (yet) because I was too busy admiring the scene set up. MadPea always seems to excel in making the best of SL by pulling out all the tricks in the bag without beating you over the head with it. Make sure on a night when you’re looking for something to do, you get over there.

I thought it would be a perfect backdrop for this casual outfit from Beanster Potato that she is selling at the Hipster Fair. It comes with the sweater and tank, jeans and shoes and she includes jewelry but I wore Plurabelle Laszlo’s awesome necklace for the Jewelry & Accessory expo. A fringed purse from Plurabelle Laszlo for the same Expo echoes the fringes.

Skin Fair is coming!

Skin Fair Poster 2016 FINAL SQUARE

Sachi Vixen, the grand dame of SL skins, is offering this and another skin at Skin Fair this year. She includes appliers for Slink and Maitreya bodies, eye makeup, lipsticks, blush, freckles, liner, and lots of love. If you are a woman who has not converted to mesh heads or you like to take a breather, these skins are bound to make you look great! Bubbles Clawtooth is offering this wonderful style at the Arcade. It includes a separate mesh piece with HUD that allows you to have the scalp-revealing part. I might be the prettiest girl on the wrong side of town!
