blog – Wing! Wing! why don’t you give me a call

Flying Deer
Flying Deer2

I am wing friendly, yes it is true because Kala deemed it to be. I am actually flattered by that, the concept of being something friendly is really nice, and that fact that it is my blogging that makes it so is something that I will be always proud of…so thank you Kala for making me smile amongst a week full of insane Diva’s.

Who can blame me though, I mean the wings that have been produced by Material Squirrel creator Kala Bijoux have now and always been such top quality. Watching her adapt to not only sculpties but different technology over the years, and her professionalism has always been of the utmost customer care.

These twig wings are so delightful and the pearled texture on the wing itself is gorgeous. Teaming them up with the latest release by Scribble, how awesome is that store, I have loved watching how Scribble just does it’s own thing, no fads here just good clean fun…unless of course you find a way to turn their latest notepaper into dirty little messages.

Last night I took Justice to Fantasia, I hadn’t been in a while, and I knew that she would love the creations there. Sure enough she did, and I ended up grabbing a few pieces myself. All of the styles in the Fantasia store – and Elementals next door – are generally geared towards your Gorean clientelle, but seriously I am so not letting them have this creator all to themselves. Both dresses I am wearing are from there, and are sooooo sexy.

I have a theory that the Gorean girls in this group are all cheeky little minxes, because the styles that Dream creates for them are like NO Gor I have seen in my four years here. The crochet dress is perfection, revealing and keeping you covered all at the same time.

I am again wearing the Charlotte skin by Dernier Cri, these make ups come from the Valley theme and they are just beautiful. The face in this skin is so intriguing the more time you spend in it, the more you can honestly find to adore. Totally the right tones of make up, and soft smokey sweeps of the brush to get the look just right.

Time to Shop ……. asta la pasta as Jussy would say.

I even played with my own decal today for this post, just because I wanted to add a little something, but couldn’t find one that sat in the right place. The first hair was a revisit to a incredibly popular store, I don’t get over there often enough, and until last night I only had this style in a mix blend.

I love Anette by Deviant Kitties, it’s such a classic updo, that because of the creator and just how you feel in it; carries over into mainstream.

But this post is mainly about the BOOOOOTS. J’s has recently released at the Footwear Expo these INCREDIBLE Thigh high boots in a gorgeous range of colours that match their previous release of ankle and knee high boots. What is also gorgeous about these boots is that they come in three heights, and as they are made using the shoe base as the actual boot itself, allowing for an extra tighter than tight fit. It is not an easy feat – pun pun pun – to achieve this look properly, many have done so over the years, and often it comes up short…but JB has nailed it.

For the super slick and shiny look of the black Thigh Highs from J’s, I went with a mix of Tank dress and wool pantys from Luck Inc…wanting to add a splash of something to the look, I opened up ps and made a starburst and made it tintable to get a similar hot pink in world. Now I did go looking at Decals made by others first, Artilleri and Stellar both have items with this kind of option, a jacket layer over a plain shirt allowing for the mixing of looks. But as the Luck inc Tank is so low cut, it didn’t match up properly so I improvised.

The Godfsts as they are called were a gift a long time ago from the owner of Gearshift, when Fia bought his nintendo belt and proceeded to drive me nuts with all the sounds. I still love these and bring them out every so often. There are actually three versions to the set, so if you aren’t into the spikes and other bits and pieces, the ones I have on are a nice fit.

With the Cherry Red printed Tank Dress, I of course went with the Cherry Red Thigh Highs…YUM. Adding a few more age old accessories, such as the Cherry bag and bangles, but with the NEW Addition of the Posture Collar from The Hat Mechanic that I was so grateful to beta test at the time of it’s creation. It was actually something that I begged for to be sold as a separate from her other items, and she went above and beyond and created a whole line of them in varies frontages and colours.

Just as new and simply divine, are the Raphael wings from Material Squirrel. All the bells and whistles you are used to in a Material Squirrel wing set, with the hud even including xcite compatibility.

The other day I did a sweater dress with corset overlay, this time another sweater dress this time from Luck Inc, with the other alternative Just Band from Nyte n Day…again tinted to match perfectly to the Thigh Highs from J’s. A much lower cowl neck , very revealing in this beautifully thick hemmed knit style. The other alternatives for this dress is a sheer version, that allows the knit to really stretch across the body, or just removing the cowl for a scoop neck look. Great for showing off such gorgeous Jewelry like the Tigers Eye set from Essentia.

All the scintillating skins I am wearing are from GALA @ Curio, yes I still cannot just say Curio it is odd to me. They are Winter2 the follow up of course to Winter1 that was released for Skin Fair and raved about. There are even more faces in this range that I will show in another post, these first three are  a peak into not just the beautiful overall skin, but the way in which the face is really illuminated and given such character with the make up ideas Gala comes up with.

I do not change my shape for skins, so I really see little nuances; in the way my shape wears them…and with the Gala @ Curio it is always there, that variation that comes through from skin line to skin line. This winter one for me has an air of change, naivety and innocence  that carries out through the eyes and glow to the cheeks. Maybe it is all in the name, that clearing of the old, and making way for the new signs of change..whatever it is, it is one of the reasons that Gala @ Curio skins speak to so many.

The last picture is me showing off the othertones available in this range. I am wearing the Little Miss Lingerie by 5th & Oxford again, because it is just so feminine and appealing to my sensibilities today. Also it is Roslin Petions Birthday week this week, as well as Autumn Hykovas of Tiny Bird, so if you see them around YELL OUT Happy Birthday.

Mai to the I to the Ki

Mai Mai
Mai Mai 2

Everything Old is New to someone, I always say it, have done forever now, have even seen it quoted in the past which made me happy. Recently I have been trying to go back and forth between my inventory, and I always check out the walls as much as I can in stores that have new releases, because you never know what you might have missed in a blink.

When I was working for Maitreya I was so happy to be able to revisit my MAiiKI, one of my favourite moments in the store, was showing three ladies upstairs to this incredible Collaberation Collection of Designers Maitreya and Dutch Touch.

The ladies were incredibly fun, and really passionate about their looks and style, but wanting to class it up than what they had been exposed to wearing in the past, these were fuller figured women, and they just adored how much MAiiKI enhanced and brought out what it was they loved about their shapes…that will always be one of my favourite days in the store. If I don’t get the people contact I wither and fade, and there is something so pleasing about helping people in second life.

One of the most standout features to the MAiiKI collection is the mix and match abilities, and when I first blogged the collection, I did a lot of that, this time I kept it as is, worn straight from inventory, it is actually from wearing these clothes that made me beg Onyx to do the Neyya pumps in a two tone toe/heel cap version, because the colour contrasts in the sets was too delish.

There is everything in this collection, incredible system skirts, sculpted skirts, gloves, collars, socks, half gloves, anklet cuffs, wrist cuffs, belts and amazing colours that work so well with the Maitreya Gold shoes as well. I was watching GREEK the other week and got so excited that one of the characters was wearing a dress just like the second picture, I even told Onyx lol, I was sitting there bouncing that she had on MAiiKI in a TV show.

While I was shooting the pics I ended up in Kala Bijoux’s IM box, she is the one of the creators behind Material Squirrel, it inspired the shot in green, how sexy does it look to have these wicked sculpted Demon wings with that dress on, to me it’s like the perfect Halloween look for those that don’t want to do over the top costumes, but want to do more of an evil temptress kind of look.

As you can see, using the HUD I was able to make them smaller and do all sorts of other things with them via it, so even if large expansive wings aren’t really you, the smaller just look adorably evil. You could of course always go with Fae wings or Angel, Material Squirrel has them all, and so beautiful.

I am also wearing the DUNe skin by Dutch Touch, it is giggle worthy how in sync those two are, Onyx and Iki , they often have same colours, names, ideas, it’s like they share a creative gene or something, but from both them and Beau of course, sprout such beautiful items.

What’s in a name

What’s in a name, well today lots and lots. A few months back Dove Swanson of Long Awkward Pose asked some of us to choose a rl picture that we like the real pose in, and she would try and recreate it for us. Yesterday she released the Wonder Girls  pose set and I was so excited to see that my choice made the cut.

I decided it might be fun to do a pic with each pose; in a kind of look of the person it was named after, now I don’t know all of the people, and some that I do know I had to mix some things up, but it was my ownfun and entertaining way to cope with not being able to sleep.

It was so much fun dressing up as Achariya, I combined two old favs from Ghost that is now Triangle. The Skirt comes in handy for all sorts of fabulous looks. This pose is ideal for holding things, and the bandaged kitty from PF was an ideal blend with this look.

I totally believe that Autumn would just cop a squat anywhere and take a call, a recent hair release from her own store is just adorable, and so suited to the fabulous Nautical set by Roslin Petion of 5th&Oxford (Previously not on Buffy but  Fleur). You cannot see enough of the clothing to give it justice , but take my word for it, if you are into highwaist double buttoned sailor pants, THESE are a MUST HAVE. Also must haves are the thongs on my feet, they are FREE at the horror festival at Drowsy, get them in all colours , I was so excited to find a great pair , and free just made them awesome.

This pose, and the name, what else could I shoot but Lingerie, and fine a lush lingerie it is. Recently Blowpop released this set and it’s just awesome, seriously if Annyka doesn’t keep making clothes, we will have to stage a sit in.
The lace topped stockings are sold as seperates, which is great as they come in different sheer depths and are a great price. Often you just need stockings because you have all the other pieces already.

The first time I ever saw this hair, or any hair by lamb for that matter; it was on Dakota Buck. This pose is fabulous as it has a definite, I’m waiiiiiting but I’m being very cool about it look. I mixed a lot of TRUTH items in this look, I adore the cardigan coat, big and long and wintery warm…it is so what I need right this second. If you look really hard I didn’t credit it, because you cannot buy it , but there is a sneaky touch of Savvy in there :P.

5th&Oxford with their rebranding came new skins, Audrey is the name and with that comes the classy looks that Fleur in the past was reknowned for. Lips that are full and poutyful, with a lovely and delicate skin tone, semi porceline looking but with some peaches thrown in.

Also from the festival, I think I bought everything, the bag I am carrying was actually the bag the bandage eyes comes in, I thought the bag was so cute I had to wear it as an accessory.

Again by Roslin of 5th&Oxford the Second Date dress is such a sweet dress, the clothing making skills of Roslin are great, as she just recently taught herself how to make clothes, YAY Roslin you are a star. I went with green for Havers pose, I thought of Lemon but that would be too corny :P.

Yes , not often or ever would you see me in a shirt like this one, Ryker made them a while back for fits and giggles. Definitely a pose in suiting with her character, peace love and mungbeans baby. I love these jeans by the way, they were made an eon ago under her Lix label, yes Ryker made them too, I don’t know if they are even sold anywhere as they were from her old store..but you should harass her if they arent.
