That there
That’s not me
I go
Where I please

How to Disappear Completely

They were playing this Radiohead song on the stream at Furillen so I thought it was a perfect title for this entry. I put together a sort of eclectic look this time, starting with Paul Lapointe’s and Bastchild Lotus’ boho crop top, which they have reconfigured to fit Slink and Maitreya bodies. I matched it with short ruffle tap pants from TheAnnex for The Project Se7en and bowed platform pumps from Darling Monday with optional stockings (that I opted to wear) from Darling Monday, also for The Project Se7en.

I piled on the jewelry. First I wore Maxi Gossamer’s chic and elegant necklace and earrings for Fameshed. They are delicate but still make a statement. My rings from Aikea Rieko are a perfect accompaniment to my look with their elaborate filigree and gems. You get a HUD that allows you to change up the colors of the separate gems, which I love.

Clawtooth at Hair Fair 2015

It’s OPEN!

Clawtooth at Hair Fair 2015

Yes, Hair Fair has opened. The sims are beautifully built this year with stores in the bottom of salon bags, which makes total sense. A runway goes down the middle of each sim and you can OFF SIM shop on two more sims if you can’t get in! Do yourself and everyone else a favor, go without a lot of scripts, without a lot of fancy clothes, and DO NOT lecture others. Mind your own business and let the organizers manage issues.

Clawtooth at Hair Fair 2015

The best idea is to take your time shopping at home by grabbing demos from the Hair Fair Demo Group. Get a glass of wine or coffee or Rockstar or water and whatever your snack of choice. Then sort through the demos: rez, open, wear, click, read, view, decide. Make a list of your favorites and go to the Hair Fair, and take your time! It’s open through July 26. Spend to your heart’s delight as every hair purchase kicks a donation to Wigs for Kids.

Clawtooth at Hair Fair 2015

There are some kick ass styles available for sale, enough to fill your wardrobe for a good long time if you like to change it up. Bubbles Clawtooth brought her A game to the fair with these five styles, made of three base styles with variations. Like bangs on your updo? Get the Flutter. Prefer without? Get Fast Lane. Both come with an separate texture change hud for the scarf. She blew wind of different velocities through Strong Winds and Gentle Breeze. And Miss Needles is just a darling look, also with the separate texture change hud for the bow and scarf separately.

My skin is Inka Mexicola’s newest, a delicate beautiful look so perfect for Bubbles’ styles. Inka is featuring this skin at Season’s Story. TheAnnex is featuring this custom-mesh dress at Season’s Story as well, which she has colored in water-washed hues. Maxi Gossamer is selling this gorgeous necklace at Collabor88.

Poor Dear Silly Spring

Poor Dear Silly Spring

Poor, dear, silly Spring, preparing her annual surprise! ~Wallace Stevens

Poor Dear Silly Spring

It’s coming! It’s coming! The sun is out, the snow is melting, the world is puddle wonderful! I admit I was starting to doubt with the many inches of snow, the never-ending unrelenting cold, and the fact that a groundhog bit the mayor of a town in my state. I know I am overdoing it with the flowers here, but spring is coming and I can’t wait!

TheAnnex is offering this lovely dress among others in their gacha at The Luck of the Irish Gacha that Depraved Nation is holding. There are a kazillion gachas full of all sorts of awesome stuff like this, so bring lots of change. My shoes are HauteCoutureDesign’s original mesh set, and they come with a HUD with six wonderful springtime colors with a darling t-strap design and a wedge heel.

I outfitted my parcel with this great gazebo from Winter Thorn, which also comes with a beautiful cozy fireplace, though I opted to use the more open one so I could take in the promise of spring in the air. I dropped in minor decorations from Sway Dench and a hanging mobile I picked up at Origami by gin Fhang.

Poor Dear Silly Spring

Skin Fair opened at midnight and the sims were INSTANTLY jam packed. (Find all the details here.) You can find this gorgeous skin from Hart Larsson on Sim 1. As usual, he decorates the skin with a cateye liner and lovely lips and features, all hand-drawn and refined. And since Hart is a programmer himself, he managed to unlock every kind of major applier, including that for the Belleza body, so you can rest assured you are PXL top to bottom. My hair is one of Thora Charron’s newest, a lovely romantic look with a twisted lock that pulls to the back and beautiful waves, all with her clever texture-change HUD. And a branch of blossoms from Siestabril Nitely, also from Origami, completes the look and brings spring, finally, to my blog!

La Belle au bois dormant

La Belle au bois dormant

“Consider
a girl who keeps slipping off,
arms limp as old carrots,
into the hypnotist’s trance,
into a spirit world
speaking with the gift of tongues.”
― Anne Sexton, Transformations

La Belle au bois dormant

Enchantment is opening tomorrow (May 1) and this time Voshie Paine has changed things up a bit to make it more interesting and to get you off a central event sim and around to the stores. Similar to the concept some Japanese groups have done, you purchase one of the Enchantment items and you get a card, which you wear. At each store you go, there is a little stamp kiosk, as shown above. You click on it while wearing the card and *kerchunk*, your card is stamped. (To get a list of creators and locations, go to the Enchantment blog tomorrow when Voshie unveils the theme.)

La Belle au bois dormant

Once you have gotten a stamp at each store and filled your card, you can take the card back to the magical wonderland at Enchantment (location to be revealed May 1) and get one of the wonderful prizes the creators are offering in kiosks around the fountain. There are 20 creators and 20 prizes and 20 possible cards. Even better, the cards are no copy/transfer so if you get a card you want to share with a friend, pass it along and let them get the stamps or redeem the card.

La Belle au bois dormant

I tp’d around to all the stores to collect my stamps and see how it worked. Each store has the kiosk close to the front door and it’s a very clever and easy operation. The stamps you have collected show up on the card and the card reports to you how much you have left. (I have two more to go! Argh!)

The theme of this month’s Enchantment is, of course, Sleeping Beauty, so all the items and accessories correspond to this in some fashion. TheAnnex is selling this gorgeous Sleeping Beauty gown with mesh under frock and caged overskirt with cascades of flowers for the event with matching sky-high shoes. The intricacy of the flowers overlaid on the dress make this a fairy tale come true. The matching shoes have flowers embellishing the sculptural shape.

La Belle au bois dormant

My Sleeping Beauty is made extra gorgeous by Inka Mexicola’s skin for the Secret Story, which is closing today. My hair is Mina Nakamura’s contribution to Enchantment, a bed-tousled flow of waves, ideal for this beauty. Mina also has an amazing lying-down hair she is offering as her Enchantment prize.

I have to say, collecting all the stamps in one night is rather tiring. After jetting around, I had a bit of a lie-down in Tya Fallingwater’s magical dreaming hammock (which also includes couples poses, but my endeavors were solitary) and I admit I dozed off. Don’t wear yourself out. You have all month to collect your stamps—the event runs through the end of May.

Bewitched, Bothered, and Bewildered

Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered

Men are not a new sensation
I’ve done pretty well I think
But this half-pint imitation
Put me on the blink

I’m wild again, beguiled again
A simpering, whimpering child again
Bewitched, bothered, and bewildered am I

~ “Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered” by Ella Fitzgerald

Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered

Genre opens tomorrow with a theme I just love: 40s Swing. The creators have invaded the big band hall that Voshie Paine has built with beautiful creations for your big band reveries. (I personally spent the evening listening to 40s chanteuses singing the old standard love songs, like Ella Fitzgerald.) Voshie has created, under the auspices of TheAnnex, this wonderful dress with jeweled embroidered cap sleeves and an elegant draped back. I styled it with lysa Helendale’s darling spectator pumps to be work with Slink feet and her great duo-tone nails. With Krystal Jenkin’s lovely necklace, I am ready for my solo while we wait for the soldiers to come home.

Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered

My go-to skin-makers for elegance and beauty are always Shyla Diggs and Tricky Boucher. Shyla always creates the most tasteful and beautiful make up combinations on Tricky’s sexy skin base. A trip over to Tutys got me this great wavy period ‘do with hairbase.

Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered

I’ve sinned a lot; I’m mean a lot
But I’m like sweet seventeen a lot
Bewitched, bothered, and bewildered am I
