Tangerine – she is all they claim
With her eyes of night and lips as bright as flame
Tangerine – when she dances by
Senoritas stare and caballeros sigh

The best part of living in SL is living like you are in the Lives of the Rich and Famous. Today I prepared for a dinner party out in my conservatory from Cory Edo for Uber, With tables and chairs Cory did for the same event (with a ton of great textures as you can see and wonderful poses, PG and Adult), I made my tables with a couple of Kaerri Rae’s great table settings and some wine. Sash Arabello has a great gacha at Shiny Shabby with pieces for the traveler including the rug I show and the pretty candles. Cube Republic is featuring the bonsai and hosta at Shiny Shabby as well.

For my dinner party, I wore one of Poulet Koenkamp’s new and sexy dresses, this one featured at her store, and accessorized with a little choker she has at the Chapter Four. I love that Poulet loves colorand  the geometric cutouts on this dress add a little interest. Fringed heels from Fhara Acacia for the Dressing Room include a color change HUD for different versions.

Kuranosuke Kamachi’s long sexy hair for Uber is a perfect accompaniment to this look. Sawsan Secretspy is featuring this skin applier at the Designer Circle and I am really impressed with how great it looks on the Catwa Destiny head (my favorite).

I hope the title got your attention! Art in Hats starts November 1, benefitting the American Diabetes Association via Team Diabetes of SL. I am sure you think, “Why a hat? Where will I wear a hat?” I don’t go to Easter Sunday here in SL and the last really interesting hats I saw in RL were perched on Princess Eugenie’s and Princess Beatrice’s heads. However, if you get past the utility and consider that the designers in SL are creating hats that are a wearable piece of art AND that part of the proceeds goes to Team Diabetes, you might want to purchase a few.

Bacon

For example, Nebraska Oddfish (palomasnow)/Dita Actor made this set of three hats that evoke famous artists (as she literally took “art in hats” to mean she needed to show art.. in hats). One hat, a surrealist’s dream, evokes Salvador Dali with its unexpected eggs and bacon theme. (And you can eat it for breakfast later!) The second reminds us of Andy Warhol’s tomato soup cans. The third is a tempest of stars like Van Gogh’s Starry Night. Made of mesh and the designer’s own textures, each hat is your own piece of wearable art.

Bacon

I decided to don an “artist” look, a Victorian-inspired dress from ValentinaEvangelista for Shiny Shabby which has been fit nicely to the Maitreya body. With Victorian boots from Jackal Ennui, it resembles an outfit a girl in my village persists on wearing (even to Fourth of July—really).  I anticipate she will be attending a school of art and design in her future. My hair is a darling, blunt bang look from Kuranosuke Kamachi for Uber, and I exploited the dipped colors to their advantage. My skin is Inka Mexicola’s applier for the Cosmopolitan Room, which I find absolutely love on this mesh head.

Are you having a few issues with some alpha interference around the eyes with this head? Catwa Clip explained to me in Flickr that the eyes have to be modified to be completely sunken for eye depth so the system lashes don’t come through and mess with your makeup. Try this!

Maria

Maria

She moves like she don’t care
Smooth as silk, cool as air
Ooh it makes you wanna cry
She doesn’t know your name

She walks like she don’t care
Walkin’ on imported air
Ooh, it makes you wanna die

Ooh, don’t you wanna take her?
Ooh, wanna make her all your own?

~ “Maria” by Blondie

Mami Jewell is now a classic in SL. I remember when she was just starting out and I was amazed by her textures and use of prims and system pieces. Now she’s “established,” which says as much about how old I am in SL as how long she has persisted as a designer. Mami has recently remodeled her store, and as an incentive to get people there, she has taken many of her dresses and made a limited color version at a discount price for the grand opening. Available through October 31 (which gives you plenty of time to browse and come back for more), the dresses will no longer be sold after the sale is over. One such is this elegant dress, done in turquoise with a gorgeous brocade texture and Mami’s distinctive satiny flexi prims. It comes with a feather boa I chose not to use.

I paired Mea Carnell’s gorgeous necklace for Cosmopolitan with the dress and Kuranosuke Kamachi’s wavy lush ‘do for Shiny Shabby with the outfit. Equally elegant Nicole Button’s newest skin, a beautiful take on a Lebanese woman with luscious lips and a refined nose and gorgeous eyes. Nicole’s skins come with appliers for many mesh bodies so you can get the face of your dreams for your mesh body. Photos were taken at the gorgeous Debauch club.

“The moment you doubt whether you can fly, you cease for ever to be able to do it.” ~ J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan

To Fly

It’s time for a little springtime fantasy, and Kiddo Oh’s sexy wrapped dress starts it off with beautiful side cut-outs for a bit of peekaboo. Joined with AvaGardner Kungler’s necklace for the Cosmopolitan Room and a crown from YukaChoco Magic from the Fantasy Collective (which closes soon!) and here we have a gorgeous otherworldly princess, one who still flies, especially with her darling pet by Sh0rtie, also from the Fantasy Collective. (The wings flap most delightfully as it sits on your shoulder!)

M4ri1yn Magic made this very photogenic mesh hair for the Shiny Shabby event. It comes in the many colors and textures he offers with his hair on a handy HUD. However, I show it here in an ethereal white.

And the genesis of the look was, of course, Monicuzza Babenco’s fantasy skin for the LeLutka mesh heads. With 10 brow choices in black and white (which includes fantasy designs like the dots on my head and chin), 10 eye makeups and 10 lipsticks, it’s a beautiful fantasy applier for the mesh heads. Three tones are available: drow, vamp and then this grayish fantasy tone, which she calls “Zafiro.” She also includes eyes and body appliers, so I was able to put together this whole gorgeous look, and I had a great time testing out the many looks available. What a beautiful way to make a fantasy fly!
