Besieged

I have, for as long as I can remember, been a fan of Sci-Fi and aliens. I don’t get an opportunity to create pictures with amazing creatures from far away places and so when I do I run with it. I actually had no intention of shooting this photo when I started out but it took on a life of its own.

Llorisen released this Sci-Fi backdrop for FaMESHed, it wasn’t required to blog if it didn’t fit our personal style and I’ve been sitting on it for most of the month. It’s actually a really fabulous build, I have no complaints with it, I just had no idea what to do with it. This is a full scene including the window with a view of space.

When I saw this brand new pack from Masoom the idea was born. This set includes a top and panties with strap, the backside of the panties is open. It comes in 11 awesome colors and the silver and gold texture is available only in the fatpack. Both the top and panties come with a metal change HUD with 4 colors. These are sold separately and fit Maitreya, Hourglass, and Freya only. Remnant opens on February 24 and goes until March 17.

I took a little creative license with this pose, from Reve Obscura this pose comes with a handgun and clip, but last time I checked bullets weren’t good in spaceships so I found a more sci-fi oriented gun and used that in place of the handgun. That is the ONLY thing I changed on this pose, I promise, the rest of it is all Reve Obscura. Bento poses do require bento hands to be used properly.

This skin! So I have never, ever used a skin from Birth in all my time in Second Life, I wanted a fantasy skin and to be perfectly honest, what I was finding on the MP was either really good and really expensive, really bad and really expensive or really bad and cheap. I finally found a skin that fit all the criteria that I needed, good, inexpensive, and futuristic/fantasy. Birth created this skin for Catwa and the pack also includes body appliers. You can find this skin in pale white, purple, and the magnificent blue, each with its own adornments. The best part, each skin is only 500L. Cheap and amazing! Win-win.

I love, love, love me some Carol G. Tattoos and when I saw the newest release at Shiny Shabby I had to have it. Now you might say that it blends in with this skin, and to be quite honest when I first bought it I didn’t intend on wearing it with blue skin, but I really think it added something to my alien. It almost looks like they belong together, like some rite of passage or something that comes with birth from her culture. This tattoo comes in the colored version that I’m wearing, black, and white. I really love this tattoo, so look for it in a future blog with less skin color.

Bad Hair Day has quickly become one of my very favorite hair stores in Second Life, and not just because I blog for them. This hair is available right now Men Only Monthly, I love using hair that isn’t intended for me, thinking outside the box is so important to me. I love the dual layer options that allow me to create a truly unique hair, one that I can call my very own. This hair base is also from Bad Hair Day and can be found at the main store location. It’s pretty cool and comes with 3 options, the design can be shaved into one side on either side of your head or both sides, Catwa, Omega, and standard tattoo appliers are included as well.

I love Swallow, the ears that she creates are like none other I have seen in Second Life. These ears are not typical for me, but when I created this look I knew these ears would complete it. These ears are pre-loaded with skin textures but my blue wasn’t exactly included. The easy to use color option in the HUD allows you to enter your RGB which I then just had to lighten a tiny bit, I think I matched it pretty well, don’t you? You can resize your ears to fit your head, there are 25 metals and the ability to turn the dragon on and off, 16 pearl options, and 27 tattoo options.

I needed some unique eyes, snake eyes seemed appropriate to me and I got lucky with my search on the MP because I found these amazing gacha eyes from .aisling. I don’t know when the gacha happened, I don’t know if it’s still available to play at the store, but I do know these are freaking amazing. I bought all three color pack and I chose the Lust color pack that includes 3 unique colors, there are options to add sparkle, tears, reflections, and so much more through the HUD. This only works with the included mesh eyes.

Live in the Moment

I wrote a big long thing about rejections and acceptances and changed my mind. I am not doing negative anymore, so although I got the words out to myself I am not sharing it with the world. I am grateful to each and every designer that has given me a chance to officially blog for them, don’t get me wrong but this is my blog, my diary if you will, and at times I have to say what’s on my mind.

 Today I want to share with you a couple of items at Whimsical. This event is a lot of fun and only happens once every 3 months. Vanilla Bae is there with this sexy dress and harness set. They are sold separately but work together. The dress, of course, comes with the strip me option, the harness includes an option to wear with and without the dress and also includes an Open Collar version.

Finding shoes proved to be the hardest task for me and I finally found the right ones from Essenz. These adorable, ribbon-laced heels can be found at FaMESHed right now these shoes are fit for Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza. You can find them in 6 mini packs including 3 colors each or the fatpack including all colors.

Peace in Every Drop

So I have been loving most of everything that has come from this round of Collabor88. It is not that often that I get to take some time and make myself a post that is strictly for my own amusement. You know how blogging can be where you have deadlines to meet and there are constant little new events opening and it can be hard to keep up with all that is new and fresh and as I love all the teams I am a blogger of I tend to over blog. The theme this round was rainy. SO many of the creations are wonderful and it got me thinking about how it is when it rains, that peace as every single drop hits the roof. The calming of the smell and everything about it. Knowing that you might get a little chilly or it may be hot and you are welcoming the cool off. Either way I thoroughly loved this set-up, thank you as always for viewing.♥

Oops

Quick updates:

Rewind opened the other day, We Love role-Play and FaMESHed are still open for a few more weeks (don’t wait till the last minute though, February goes by in a blink).

LAQ has a FREEEEE applier out till the 18th and it is adorable!

ALSO!  Kinda exciting news….a well know and much read SL journalist/explorer, Inara Pey, came to visit our region the other day and wrote a lovely article about it.  She and her partner Caitlyn wandered around and took some wonderful photos.  You can read the article here on her blog, Living in a Modem World.   As always, our land is welcome to visitors for relaxation, photography or simply to have a place to open boxes.  We have peeps who join the group and make a particular spot their home so that they have a place to rezz into and hang out or do some light rp…..as was the case yesterday.  We had a gentleman who comes with his mistress and he has gone afk….naked and kneeling.  Darth sent him a nudge to put pants on while we had classy visitors with cameras but we soon figured he was afk …. so Darth put a large rock over him (I soo wish I’d have taken a picture of that!) …. I can’t imagine what he thought when he woke up ❤

Anyway, here’s the LM’s for both adjoining regions if you want to pop by for a visit and/or a look see ❤

Come to My Window

I got some amazing news today, but that’s for another post. For today, I have a job interview with the local school district as a substitute teacher, I’ve never done that before but how much different from babysitting a store as a manager could it be? I can’t tell you how many times I had to break up fights, watch thieves, and settle grievances. I can’t do math, but I’m pretty good with everything else and if they have me substitute in an elementary I can even do the math there. So before I get all professional let’s strip it down a little bit with today’s post.

XXX Event starts tomorrow and you can head over there to pick up some amazing creations. Blossom is coming with a gorgeous new set of lingerie. This set includes the panties and bra with a soft lace covering that exposes your nipples. This set is fit for Maitreya, Slink, Freya, and Isis. It comes with a HUD that includes 8 mix-and-match colors.  Blossom also has a matching robe which I didn’t feature in this blog.

Do you know what I like the most about blogging for events? Discovering creators I have never heard of before. UniCult is one of those stores and today I have some love bites from them. The body kiss set comes in three different appliers and works with Maitreya and Omega. I chose HUD too that includes a little bruising.

The last lovely item I have from XXX Event is this pose from Luanes World. She’s got two actually, a female single pose pack and a couple’s pose pack. I don’t have a couple so you get the lady only. The female single pose pack includes 3 bento poses in the fatpack, as far as I can tell you can buy each individually or as a fatpack. They are just gorgeous poses.

I decided to pair this look up with a lovely set of platform heeled boots from MODA, you can pick up your very own pair at Fetish Fair right now until February 16. These heels come with a massive HUD to completely customize your look. As with all MODA shoes, these are sold as a fatpack only with a HUD and fit for Maitreya, Hourglass, Isis, Freya, and eBody Curvy.

Happy Sunrays

sunroom 1024.png

{Flickr}

Happy is the sunray,
That lightens up the break of day,
Happily it will shine;
Sunray so kind!

They are always so pretty,
Especially when they smile at you and me,
As they dance in the meadow;
And sometimes even on the snow.

Sunrays are here to make you glad,
To cheer you up when you feel sad,
Sunrays forever love to dance;
As they smile at you in a trance.

For they are in their own world,
Where no one ever exchanges a cross word,
Where everything is peace and harmony;
And where everything’s tranquil and happy.
