Unpretty

Rewind: A Throwback Event is open again and this time it’s Y2K. Any of those old enough to remember 18 years ago, remember the panic and fear of what would happen when the world’s computers rolled over to single zeros. Were we going to crash, be plunged back into the dark ages? Fortunately, none of that happened and we’ve gone on with our merry lives, producing children who eat Tide Pods for “fun” challenges *rolls my eyes and smacks my head* great legacy we’re leaving huh? Anyway, the music of the late 90’s and early 2K’s was phenomenal and I used it as an excuse to use a TLC song. I loved TLC so much and when I heard Left Eye had died in a crash I was devastated. Their music was fun and fresh with some amazing messages. I am not unpretty in this blog but the music tells a story we all need to hear.

Sometimes, well most of the time actually, I have NO idea how I am going to put together a picture or scene before I do it. I get an item, which then inspires me to get another item and another until I have a set that I put together and am happy with. Today is one of those days. Canimal is at the Rewind Y2K with this gorgeous, Asian-inspired dress. This dress is fit for Maitreya only and comes in 8 stunning colors or a fatpack.

Of course, since I have an Asian style dress I wanted a hair that would fit the theme and I was in luck because Bad Hair Day had released one. Originally released for The Season Story, this hair is now available in store. It comes with 4 styles included and as with all Bad Hair Day hairs, it includes an upper and lower layer HUD option. I chose the black/white main HUD and the light colors for HUD 2. I just love being able to create unique color combinations with these hairs. If you want complete control you have to buy the fatpack, each color pack only comes with that specific color for both HUDs.

The perfect dress needs the perfect shoes right? Moda is at Whimsical open now. These shoes are sold as a multi-texture only. They are fit for Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza and each piece is color change individually. The HUD includes 26 colors and 4 metal options.

I chose a couple of different items from Plastik to showcase in this blog, the jewelry armoire is available at Frou Frou and comes with an upright open and closed version as well as a tilted open and closed version. There are 7 colors to choose from and you can purchase them as a fatpack as well if you want them all. Nail polishes are also available for purchase and include Maitreya and Omega appliers. Those are pictured in the closeup photo below and shown on #Empire Medium Coffin Nails, which I love because I can use an offset nail. Plastik is also at The Liaison Collaborative with these gorgeous new wall candle sets. There are 5 packs of two available for purchase.

See how cute this hair is and the nails? So to complete my look I pulled out my Powder Pack again, I did an unboxing video yesterday showing everything that comes in it and you can view that here. I chose this gorgeous skin from Essences. This pack includes 6 face appliers in 3 tones, body appliers, a shape, and an eyebrow shaper. Remember, Powder Pack items ARE exclusive, you will not find them anywhere else. You have from the first of the month until midnight on the 16th to reserve your Powder Pack for 1500L, after release they go up to 3000L.

I decided to use the Izzie’s makeup included in this month’s Powder Pack, the eyeshadows and lipsticks are just gorgeous. I chose the eyes, lashes, and beauty marks from Euphoric to complete my look.

I Can Be Your Hero, Baby


Would you dance if I asked you to dance?
Or would you run and never look back?
Would you cry if you saw me crying?
And would you save my soul tonight?

Would you tremble if I touched your lips?
Or would you laugh? Oh, please tell me this
Now would you die for the one you love?
Oh hold me in your arms tonight

I can be your hero baby
I can kiss away the pain
I will stand by you forever
You can take my breath away

Would you swear that you'll always be mine
Or would you lie? Would you run and hide?
Am I in too deep? Have I lost my mind?
I don't care, you're here tonight

I can be your hero baby
I can kiss away the pain
I will stand by you forever
You can take my breath away

                   ~~ Hero, Enrique Iglesias

Oh Boys Really Should Make Passes


...at girls who wear glasses, because they're hot, hot, hot!

Lots going on in this post. Okay, first off, darn ya Powder Pack! You made me pop on my Catwa Catya again. I was on a long roll with Lelutka Chloe, very happily. I suffer from identity crisis when I switch heads too much, but now I'm back in love with my Catya. OMG, what a great Powder Pack for February! Amara Beauty skin, Mudskin lips, and euphoric eyes/liner/shadow. I particularly love euphoric eyes for my Catwa head.

With that in motion, I selected some really cute hair by EscalateD called Baily. The designer, Dolphin Ayres, was a recipient of one of The Hunties 2017 awards! Well deserved and congratulations! I was late to the congrats party, having just found out.

My tattoo is by Liquid called Lust, and the one I'm wearing is the Rainbow colors. It's available at the Twe12ve event. Isn't it fantastic?? Another featured designer at Twe12ve is .kosmetik with marvelous nail appliers called Crave Red. I really like the huds, making it possible for even Maitreya wearers to have a set of different textures on each nail, with different options for wear! The dress I'm wearing - see pic below - is by anny's Fashion, named Amalie, and I fell instantly in love with it. It includes multiple fits and a texture hud - make this one a fashion staple.

Finally, what really pulled the post together are the poses by NANTRA. The set of Bento poses with auto-rez glasses props is called Boys Don't Make Passes, and can be found at ULTRA. I'm always waiting with a smile to see what NANTRA will release next, they're always wonderful fun for photos!

Happy shopping!

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 ❤

Nothing you can say can stop me going home

When I was a young boy
My father took me into the city
To see a marching band

We’ll carry on, we’ll carry on
And though you’re dead and gone, believe me
Your memory will carry on
We’ll carry on
And in my heart I can’t contain it
The anthem won’t explain it

MCR ~ The Black Parade

I am not afraid to keep on living
I am not afraid to walk this world alone
Honey, if you stay
I’ll be forgiven
Nothing you can say can stop me going home
