Seeing Red

Wow, oh wow,
She’s got me seein’ red,
Like bang, bang, pow,
Eleven out of ten,
I don’t know how,
Straight off the Richter scale,
She drives me wild….

~ “Wow oh Wow” by Jedward

Seeing Red

A hot red dress and ankle boots and I am set to go out. Doc Eldritch’s new sexy look, made from 100% original mesh and fit tight to mesh bodies, is a hot look for dancing or other playmaking. Check out the wrinkles, the body shown through the fabric, the great texture. With a texture-change HUD, this dress has it all. I paired up Miffyhoi Rosca’s belted gloves for Shiny Shabby, another piece that includes a versatile texture-change HUD. Pixieplumb Flanagan is offering these snakeskin ankle boots as the donation item for the S.O.S. Festival, a fund-raiser to benefit Medicins Sans Frontieres/Doctors without Borders. Read more about this at their website. The event opens September 9 but I was pretty excited to show this set.

Seeing Red

GenesisLab has created a gorgeous new mesh head for the Shiny Shabby event and I am rather taken with this particular one with its beautiful open eyes and luscious lips. A square jawline adds a certain powerful beauty to the face shape and the appliers have a strong brow. GenesisLab is also offering add on makeups—both lipsticks and shadows, which I employed to amp up my look. Kavar Cleanslate has this dramatic glorious “hot” hair as one of his prizes in his Arcade gacha this round. You want drama? Kavar has you covered.

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

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!

I made a visit to the Citadel, a beautifully constructed sim, to enjoy the views and the interiors in my new dress from Azraellll, a 100% original mesh piece directly from Paris. I love the classiness of the dress, especially paired with sexy shoes from Senzati0n Domenitzo for Whore Couture that she is putting out March 15. A chic little bracelet from Aleida Rhode completes the look.

Investment

I wore Umazuma Metaluna’s applier for the Arcade, the rare, which comes without makeup, and I wanted to dress up the look so I chose eyeshadow from Alaska Metropolitan and lipstick from Mea Carnell, and I blended them to give a muted look. I love how they dressed up this beautiful face. Curly lush hair from Queue Marlowe completes the look, swept to the side with an additional flexi attachment.

Threw my purse in the car and took off shopping. It’s just one of those days when I hope I might find a perfect something by chance, a sort of psychic gacha. I know I had lucked out yesterday with this gorgeous dress from StellaJane that includes a texture change HUD with a ton of gorgeous east Asian silk textures (like nothing I have quite seen before in SL). Lush and beautiful, I could choose a number of different looks off the one HUD at a great price. I loved how she got the texture so satiny with perfect proportion. I paired with it Glamistry’s new strappy platforms, sexy and simple with his great texture change HUD to control different parts of the shoe. Lovely earrings from AvaGardner Kungler, a great find from On9, and my Arcade gacha handbag from Fashionboi Landar, and I was set to shop ‘til I dropped.

Chance

Inka Mexicola will be releasing a set of makeups on a medium01 skin for the Cosmetic Fair. They are lovely and compliment different looks without being too outre as some gacha skins can be. My hair is Shylah Honey’s lovely side-parted and brushed look for Tres Chic, which is opening in a couple days. I love these pretty blue eyes from Audrey Lamede from The Men’s Dept. (Yes, eyes are unisex—”pretty” on women and “handsome” on men.) I rode in style at !ndustry with Wavie Haller’s rockin’ convertible from the Arcade.

Boogie Oogie Oogie

Boogie Oogie Oogie

If you’re thinkin’ you’re too cool to boogie
Boy oh boy have I got news for you
Everybody here tonight must boogie
Let me tell ya’ you are no exception to the rule

~ “Boogie Oogie Oogie” by A Taste of Honey

Boogie Oogie Oogie

I got Erratic Rain’s new leggings and top for Uber and they made me want to boogie oogie oogie! First of all, the mesh fits skin tight to the Maitreya Lara body with nary a gap or sag. Second, it comes in eye popping colors and includes a color change HUD for the stripe on the leggings. I added Maxi Gossamer’s colorful and fun necklace and earrings, also for Uber, to the ensemble and found Toxxic Rhiannyr’s amazing funky boogie oogie skates, which made the outfit complete. Then I took myself over to Rollerballs for some skating fun (and a great disco stream).

Boogie Oogie Oogie

Roller skating was a big deal when I was a kid, and the whole set up reminded me of the sweaty, cotton-candy soaked fun I had zipping around. Add these poses from Luna Jubilee and Radagast Lexington, and I am a boogie skate queen.

Boogie Oogie Oogie

MissAll Sunday Lemon made this great side-flung high ponytail for Uber, which I wore in a bright pink to push the look to the top, and I colored my lashes from Thora Charron blue for that added disco look, which also made my blue eyes from Ikon Innovia for Shiny Shabby pop. Finally, I have one of Umazuma Metaluna’s lovely Lelutka mesh head appliers that she will have at the Arcade at the beginning of the month with boldly colored eyeshadow so I can boogie til I can’t boogie no more.

Within You, Without You

Within You, Without You

With our love, we could save the world, if they only knew

Try to realise it’s all within yourself
No one else can make you change
And to see you’re really only very small
And life flows on within you and without you

~ “Within You, Without You” by George Harrison

Within You, Without You

Sway Dench is making me want to sit in my garden—for one last time. I am giving my parcel at Dream State to Jaynine Scarborough for Thousand Rooms. As Jaynine said, things change and come and go, which reminded me of this George Harrison/Beatle’s song. I put Sway’s Indian-influenced bench and candles down and relaxed in the sunshine, considering how life flows with me and without me. Of course, I had to do it as a sort of garden nymph in Mariska Simon’s pretty spring bra and panty set, which comes complete on appliers for Slink or Omega (which works great with Maitreya and the Omega translator). Sexy high heels with a bow at the ankle are new at Senzati0n Domenitzo’s store.

Within You, Without You

Umazuma Metaluna is offering a beautiful set of skins with gorgeously drawn, deep set eyes in a variety of makeups at the Arcade. This is a chance to get a buy-in on her unique and beautiful look at an inexpensive (and tradeable!) price. Bubbles Clawtooth is also offering one of her great looks at the Arcade for springtime beauty, this being one of the rares without bangs and with an essential hair color set. The lovely daisy headpiece comes with it as an add on. Giela Delpaso “put a bird on it” for her nail appliers for the FAD Fashion Event.
