Warrior Woman

I like to feel my power in SL. I am not talking about social power or financial power or physical power—I am talking about my feminine power. It goes beyond sexuality to something deeper—the power of knowledge, acceptance and peace.

Teklili Tantalus has a good vision of power and complexity as represented by his otherworldly work. If you take a good look, you will see each prim is positioned perfectly, each texture considered carefully. The fit of the pieces on my avatar was damn near perfect (once I sized it up a tinch), which means Tek is building on the avatar rather than on a mannequin—no small task doing that. His work is a testiment to expertise and skill.

What is also terrific is that the pieces come scripted with metal-changing and gem-changing features. A whole palette of colors and color intensities can be chosen and typed in on command to change your piece from silver to black to purple to orange and mix them up.

Tricky Boucher’s Alyson skin, while seeming somewhat girlish on first view because of its freckles and very fresh skin and lips, still lends power to this look with the darkly shaded eyes and powerfully drawn body.

I also show Jesseaitui Petion’s tattoos here. He has been a leader in tattoo-making in SL for quite a while and with reason. He understands that not everyone wants a full body tat nor do they want a black and white photo. Sometimes it’s about replicating what will be meaningful and look good on a body. I wear three tats layered here—a celtic moon on the back shoulder blade (I *love* shoulder blade tats), a little Taurus symbol on my belly and tribal-style tats on my arms. You won’t often see me in tats but if you do, they will likely be his.

Finally this incredibly wonderful short hair from Komari Mai made as a set for the Crazy Arse Hair Hunt that is still going on. It comes with two other hairs that are more “crazy” than this one. This hair is short, fierce and excellently textured. Were it available in other colors I would gladly buy the fat pack. I am guessing it looks great on men too. Go FIND this hair before the hunt ends.

Hot Winter

This post introduces SC Tracy, a friend and associate and a RL man! He is also now an occasional guest blogger for menswear right here. This doesn’t mean I will be giving up the menswear gig—just means SC is going to bring a different perspective to it once in a while. (Actually, this guest blog is here because SC spent so much time telling me to change my hair, my skin, and my shoes for the last menswear blog that I told him he should try it. So he did!)

Only on SL can I defy my mom’s perennial orders not to leave home during the winter with an open coat…or a shirt. I live in NYC so going and coming from the gym today in 22 degrees with a windchill of God-knows-what got me thinking the obvious: Winter’s different in SL–it isn’t cold.

Hot Winter

I took a trip to Coco Homme. In typical SC Tracy fashion, I got the Flight Jacket in both brown and black (I like to be prepared) so why not pick up the Slim Fit Pants in both black and white? Hey, what the hell, the Slim Jeans Belt, too. It turned out to be one of the easier ones to adjust the size of I’ve found.

The fit on the pants is perfect. I love the rise. The prim bottoms make it very easy to adjust the length for whatever shoe your wearing—like the old-school kicks I picked up from Soreal.

The jacket is worthy of RL runway, sexy and a major construction. The zipper’s realism is a superb detail. A realistic weathered leather bound by great prim work throughout the design. Adjustable cuffs. Stitched black leather trim detailing front and back, a great collar shape and a cozy shearling lining.

Hot Winter

The kicks, well what can I say? As I wrote before about SOREAL Superstars, it’s hard to parlay a pair of prim kicks into a reason for living, but these come close. Scripted and easy to fit, and very authentic, down to the logo design on the heel, shell toe and broken-in detailing.

What to Wear to Burning Life, Part 4

You see a running theme here? Gonna keep banging on it til Burning Life is over and y’all have visited! I really enjoy Burning Life because it gives me a chance to mix up my wardrobe and dress up and do some wild things. This is the sweet, unpainted, unparticled side of me.

What to Wear to Burning Life, Part 4

Here you see me at Damanios Thetan’s Burning Life Temple build, an incredibly gorgeous place that I hope finds a home when BL is over.

I started with a skirt from LeeZu Baxter and a top from Julia Soothsayer. I will admit I got this particular combo from my friend Cali Rahal, who has scoured the grid for coordinating and hot-looking outfits.

I added a cute sash from Khea Karas to complete the sort of updated earth mother look I was after. I don’t show enough dust on the hem of the skirt—pretend it’s there.

What to Wear to Burning Life, Part 4

With the ensemble, I added the details—a cute ponytaiul from Elikapeka Tiramisu (hair up and out of the face in the wind), big ethnic earrings from Zaara Kohime, and a fine tattoo from Jesseaitui Petion. And may I say, thank you, Jesse, for making a simple realistic tattoo—not all of us want to have them painted all over our bodies. Sometimes a pure heart with wings is all a girl needs. (And yeah, I have boots on under here. Really!)
