Break of dawn

As is so often the case, our home on mainland is always a work in progress.  Darth is usually trying to junk up the place (literally…like the apocalypse just came thru), I’m usually trying to fantasy it up and Jarath is usually retexturing stuff (accidentally) and planting goats all over (on purpose…and I can’t honestly say why except…he ain’t right and who are we to judge).  We span the front half of 2 regions on the ocean and truly have the most interesting combo of landscaping going on … and yet no beach.  I try to spend time in different spots on the land instead of hanging up on the platform so much and one of the cool little places tucked away up a hill is this old abandoned and overgrown site.  I had just “planted” Little Branches Giant Beech trees and was admiring my handiwork when I thought I’d take a picture….and ya know what’s a good foggy windlight?  Alchemy Immortalis “foggy morning”…. instant mood.  The Beech trees can be found right now at the Sense Event until February 8th.  ❤

Feel free to pop by our work in progress and wander.  We’re rezz friendly (if ya need to run scripts, join the group then just leave it afterwards if need be) so picture taking is easy.  We have a swamp, a desolate, run down apocalyptic area, a semi-deserted town, a wharf, a dock with houseboats, some forested land, a homeless encampment, some magical ruins and 8f8’s full La Petite Joie Cafe set up with gorgeous views ….and just so many other odd and end places.  And of course, we still have Charlie the giant octopus out in the ocean looking for a snack.  As I said, we span 2 regions…but anything that says Sanctuary or Sanctuary by the Sea is ours … and you’re always welcome ❤

Listen to the silence of nature and hear your inner voice

So I’ve moved on from a bubble butt to a fawn butt…and I’m equally happy with both!  When I saw this fawn body in the Tentacio/Psycho;Bytes collection at Epiphany I just fell in love.  Of course, it’s the rare….so I was trepidous about the amount of pulling I’d have to do to get it and the common white ears that I wanted.  I’m happy to share why.  I’m not a fan of having different colors on pulls.  Why can’t we just have the item with a hud that changes colors?  (rhetorical question, I know why, I just don’t like it).  Many times this spurs me right onto the Marketplace to look who pulled the color I like….cause there are no days I’m going to shell out buckets of Lindens for 1 pair of white fawn ears.  It’s just easier to go to MP and pay 10 or 20 L’s over pull…or lots of times the actual pull price… and get what I want.   I don’t put a lot of effort into reselling or trading unwanted pieces unless it’s a rare (I still don’t put the effort in with the rares, I get Darth to do it cause he freaking looooves doing that in groups)  What I have been putting a lot of effort into is cleaning my inventory…which is littered with gacha stuff that I didn’t want in the first place (and 100,000 other things, but that’s another story).  Now don’t get me wrong…I am totally happy to go pull when I like and want everything (looking at you LODE) and for some things I DO want every color (looking at you again LODE)…… but for a handful of specific things….no thank you.  This was why I was so excited when Darth told me that Rhenu had an extra rare deer body, henceforth to be known as “MY deer body”…. I couldn’t give her my Lindens fast enough.  Rhenu is always super fair about her gacha resales and the white ears I picked up on the MP at close to pull….so I truly made out like a bandit and have been prancing around for several days ❤

Speaking of prancing around, the deer body comes with an adorable AO.  She walks and stands still like a doe (all 4 legs), she prances (swear) and she rears up every now and again.  She also has a super cute sit.  The AO actually works with your regular AO…so I still had my regular upper body motions as I was prancing.  Here’s the down side…for a photographer or blogger anyway.  You can’t choose to stop the AO and it’s no mod.  I’d jump on a pose stand and would automatically go into deer sit….I didn’t want deer sit.  The only way I could make myself stop moving was to put an item I was wearing into edit mode… and even then you’d just freeze in that position.  My new Argrace hair, Sayo, has animations that come with it and those will work as they’re upper body, but the rest would just keep on moving.  I did send a notecard to Psycho chick who offered to trade me for a mod version so that I could pose and lo and behold, today May Tolsen of Tentacio sent me a body with no AO in it….perfect!.  How nice was that of them!?!??  Now I’m not saying the un-mod-able AO is a bad thing…just doesn’t work well if you want to get a particular pose for a picture…. and that’s probably just a small slice of SL peeps who only want it for that.  I personally plan on wearing the hooves down to the nubs …  that’s right … this fawn is going to be seen at alllll the SL shopping spots and music venues.  It is truly fabulous for role-play or just…ya know…prancing around ❤

I mentioned the new Argrace hair right!?  Windblown and messy…perfect…AND comes with poses AND mirror versions.  You’ll be seeing a lot of pictures with this ‘do ❤

Praying for Spring

I know I’m not the only one sick and tired of having to bundle up just to run to the car.  I’m down south and I know I don’t have it nearly as bad as much of the world’s winter population….. but we here in the Big Easy don’t know what to do with stupidly cold weather so we find reasons to stay inside (which believe me is safer…nothing scarier than a bunch of newbie/inexperienced drivers on icy roads) and pray for Spring to get here ❤

Belleza has a brand new Lelutka applier out for The Seasons Story. Hazel is available in all 7 skin tones and comes with matching skin base and 5 brow options. There’s also a lipstick add-on available in 6 gorgeous colors. ❤

Another fabulous reason to hit up Season’s Story is this adorable hair ‘do from Wasabi, Millie.  You have 2 styles to pick from in your pack, one with bangs and one without….but the 2 low ponies on either side are the winners here ❤

Seasons Story is open till January 31st ❤
