No, let’s not put a label on it
Let’s keep it fun

Cool Girl

I went over to the West of the Rain for a cool summer day scene with poses from Katya Valeska for Shiny Shabby. I started with a new top from Doc Eldritch that includes some fabulous colors and a beautiful texture. Doc makes all his mesh from scratch and custom fits it to mesh bodies so it’s perfect every time. I paired it with shorts I got from Kinu Mayako at Thrift Shop that includes a HUD to allow different parts of the shorts to be switched out. Criss-crossed platforms from Darling Monday’s sale make this a sexy casual look.

Cool Girl

A trip to Shiny Shabby will also make you a cool girl. Start with Umazuma Metaluna’s gorgeous skin from Shiny Shabby, an applier for Catwa heads, which I am showing on the Destiny head. With gorgeous eyes from Lilanachristina and a unique necklace set from Aikeo Reiko for Shiny Shabby, the look is fabulous. I love the smooth long look from Vivienmarli for Shiny Shabby as well, a simple and easy ‘do for a casual freedom.

Once Wild

Once Wild

You were once wild here. Don’t let them tame you. ~ Isadora Duncan

Once Wild

I found myself going wild with this dress from Tatyana Ultsch for the Mesh Body Addicts Fair. With a HUD full of delicious textures, I chose this wild one to suit the cut of the dress (which is cut up to there). I paired arm jewelry from Aikea Reiko for The Liaison Collaborative with the look—I wish more were making jewelry like this because I think a simple arm band is really sexy. Nail polish from Zozicon for the Mesh Body Addicts Fair matches the look and sexy shoes from Senzati0n Domenitzo, new at her store, are open and sexy. My little gacha necklace from Revoul is pretty fun but it would have been nice if the creator had attached it to the spine and not the neck (hint).

Once Wild

Queue Marlowe must have been feeling wild when she cooked up this ‘do for Hairology. I had to choose the wildest color, of course, especially to go with Umazuma Metaluna’s skin for the Mesh Body Addicts Fair. The skin was made for the new LAQ heads but I found it worked just as well (thanks, Omega) on the Destiny Catwa head for the MBAF. I added some glitter and glam with eye and lip appliers from Alaska Metropolitan, also offered at the MBAF. The eye glitter is especially appealing with this look. I love Alaska’s makeup!

Waiting, but I don’t mind
I’m all bus stops and heat
I’m neon in your daylight

How it is is how it oughta be

~ “Optimist” by David Byrne and St. Vincent

Optimist

When you see the buds on the trees, Radiohead drops a new song, sunshine arrives, you can’t help but be an optimist. I put together a casual, about-town outfit and strolled the streets of St. Pete’s City. My top and jacket are Ariadne Garrigus’ newest separate with a texture change HUD for the top and sweatshirt. She gives you a ton of cute patterns and solids for the top. I matched them up with the funky harem-style pants from AscendSL that comes with a color-change HUD and bejeweled sandals from Lilo Denimore, both featured at Shiny Shabby. Aikea Reiko has a selection of darling embossed handbags and Empyreanforge has a terrific bracelet set with texture change HUD at Shiny Shabby.

Queue Marlowe is bringing this great ponytail back from the Fantasy Faire and putting it in her store soon. My skin is Inka Mexicola’s generous group gift for the Essences fans, a system skin with all the beauty we are accustomed to from Inka. And I am totally in love with these gorgeous eyes from Audrey Lamede for Cosmopolitan Room.

“Bassically” by Tei Shi

Behave

You sign up to blog an event like Romp and all your posts seem to center around sex—funny how that works out. I pulled out this sexy latex dress from xxsaltandpepperxx, which she is featuring at Romp, and I was inspired to go red, especially when I got the amazing lace up shoes (reminiscent of a pair that Kendall Jenner wore for the MTV Music Awards) from Queenshop that are featured at the Chapter Four. I clicked around on the color choice HUDs for each one and found the perfect look. Aikea Rieko’s fabulous mesh earrings from The Liaison Collaborative finish my look.

Nicole Button has recently come out with an applier for the Catwa head, this one meant for the newer head but it looks ideal on Annie too. I tinted up the lips and eyes with the Catwa-supplied makeups, making them completely opaque. Tabata Jewell has created a set of Catwa hairbase appliers to match this fabulous, one-sided tumble of curls she is featuring at Hairology. I think it’s a fierce look that will command someone (you know who you are) to behave! Behave

How to Disappear Completely

How to Disappear Completely

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

~ “How to Disappear Completely” by Radiohead

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.

How to Disappear Completely

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.

Feels Like Home

Feels Like Home

Feels like home to me, feels like home to me,
Feels like I’m on my way back where I come from.
Feels like home to me, feels like home to me,
Feels like I’m on my way back where I belong.

~ “Feels Like Home” as done by Randy Newman

Feels Like Home

I recently redecorated a part of my home to enjoy some of the fantastic furniture and décor I was seeing at recent events. Kalia Firelyte’s great rug and fireplace from ROMP provide the center of the grouping with chairs from ValiantCo featured at Collabor88 and Fameshed. Sway Dench has made drawers and rugs for this month’s colorful theme at The Liaison Collaborative. Gachas from Kunst  Himmel and Anaisterpellie and DanielEstro provided fine accessories. I want to note that Anaisterpellie/DanielEstro’s pieces are usually based on a white palette BUT because they leave them mod, a person can recolor, retexture or just rip pieces apart as they like to decorate (please note the wreath on the wall came off one of their pieces and I recolored elements of their other work). Thank you for letting me mod!

To relax at home I am wearing a romantic gown from Aikea Reiko that comes in many luscious colors (as I don’t think Aikea sees any problem with giving you the rainbow and then some). As always, the textures are rich and beautiful with lush shades and ombres. Caelan Hancroft’s choker/collar from ROMP (which includes texture change for the metals and the center stone) is a lovely piece of jewelry or, if needed, open collar for other kinds of play.

Feels Like Home

My beautiful face is Gael Streeter and ElleEtGance’s mesh head collaboration (which I will call the “GA:EG Adriana Mesh Head” because that’s the brand name, regardless that it is hard to search and clumsy to type). With a very user-friendly HUD that was plug n play (which I will show in a subsequent blog post), layers for makeup, and most important to me, Omega compatibility, I think I am going to find myself wearing this head more and more. It does include expressions which, I find, are not as versatile as the Logo or LeLutka heads but as expressive as the Catwa head. I wish the makeups had the translucency control that other heads have. However, I found they went on lickety split, and I didn’t have the kind of rezzing issues I often have with the Catwa head.

Most importantly, the face is aesthetically pleasing to me. The cheekbones are a bit high but having adjusted my head length up and down and front to back, I was able to find a look that was pleasing. I did not have to mess with my mesh eyes very much as I do with Catwa and even Logo (thank you, thank you) and I found I could wear this skin from Sawsan Secretspy without problems when I wore the Omega converter. The head fit my Maitreya body to a T. It seems the creators have thought of almost everything one will need but I will keep working with it and tell you more.
