One way or another

One way or another

I decided to make a change today, turning off the red for a bit of blonde. I wonder if I can stick to it as long as I did the red, that was almost 5 months straight. So to commemorate the blondie-ness an homage to the great Debbie Harry, with this pic that definitely had me feeling the One way or another song. I could definitely see this being a look she would go for now. She was so our Pop Princess down here at the time. As I often have to recalculate my brain to understand that the US did not get the same kind of UK influences as we did, especially music wise. We were definitely luckier for it, having both have such an impact on us over the years in that way.

This Slayer dress by Cynful is a sexy side breast creation, and comes with built in panties, that can be turned on or off, which is a great idea for mesh content, as often there is nothing up there, so sitting down becomes a very odd experience. Perfect colour combination with the Sakura shoes and harness attachment (that elongates the strappyness) by Empire.

I wanted to go all RAWR with this look, to get a proper look at the Petal Mesh Lashes by Izzie’s that I mentioned the other day, you get a proper close up this time, and a hint of the great ring sets she created for this round of Uber.

It was actually this hairstyle by Tableau Vivant that made me go, I need to be blonde…it is a sexy short style, and is something that even if not a short hair girl, you need to take a spin in, just for kicks.

I am using the fantastic lighting system from VR Foundry that you can buy as an installer pack for your VR Studio, or you could just use the projector lights on their own if you wanted to I guess. This is the Grid, which worked great with the Winxbox Stirred.

City Day

I needed to get out of the Country for a day, and have a time out at a nice little bistro I found in my travels. Ok seriously how funny is that sign.The building is a Rare by Rowne, from some Gacha event gone by. I took the pics at the sim that Empire shoe store is located on as we were there picking up some shoes Whimsy wanted, and I was already in these stunners that are at an event Empire is part of called Project 7.

I am wearing with them this great dress by Emery, that is at C88, and is the perfect creation for bringing attention to the legs, and by extension fantastic footwear. I love the ribbed knit fabric used in the dress it makes it a perfect slip into and move on style.

Adding a few key accessories and you are well on your way to a great day out and about. This bag by David Heather is at this round of Uber, and this great statement necklace by Minimal is at their store for Mix event.

If I was going to make a stunning dress with cut out panels, I would call it Grazia too. Often you see named items, and you know who they were named after, this dress is spot on. The style is sophisticated, and alluring, and just everything that says Grazia (Horwitz). I love the style of this dress, and I was able to colour change my shoes by Empire to match the black and brown look.

The short hair, also an homage to Grazia, not by the creator but by me, as it is when she rocks out the shorter styles that I go YEAH! and this one is perfect. The style ensemble was wrapped up with these bracelets by Mandala, that have such a powerful look to them, they are called Yolo, which gives you even more attitude.

There has been an update to the Maitreya Lara body, and while taking her for a spin I decided to hit up a store that makes exclusively for the body. Thalia Heckroth the store and the person behind the label, has a lot of style and sophistication, so you are going to love the looks you can come up with there. The top and skirt today are a recent release, and I will be showing more throughout the week.

Mixing some old and new with some great accessories, and having a great look that can suit every day and into the evening. I love this skirt it is so pretty and feminine, great date night wear.

How does your garden grow

How does your Garden grow

Yesterday in a group someone asked if anyone knew where they could get a gown for a particular body….Gown releases are rarer than they used to be, so I can imagine it would be slimmer pickings for bodies right now. In the past I have always loved combining parts to make a hybrid formal look, and when I put on the Ison top from C88, I knew exactly what skirt I wanted to wear it with.

The top is a ‘spy’ top, but has a lot of elegance about it, that it was an easy spin into formal. This skirt was an older release by Junbug…I knew I had purchased it at Uber, and those release pages that the events do, really become a great extension to your search tab when wanting to find things. Probably a great place to browse if feeling like shopping and a bit stuck for where to go, a past release can trigger a desire to revisit a store you may never have been to the main of.

I felt very natural in the look, and this hair by EnVogue at Hairology, is so stunning, I just had to adorn it with some Lode to keep going with the garden idea. The skin I am wearing is a Lara Hurley skin, I popped over the other day and bought a few different skins for LeLutka, they are all so lovely and great value, and the body appliers come in all tones, so I actually changed tones a few times during my face purchases, always great to have that option.

Rack em and Stack em

The Rack

Lately there has been a slew of new Groups, with anticipation so many are looking for the announced 40 Groups coming soon. I myself will wait and see.

Glitterati a store always so generous to its patrons, has opened a VIP Group. The start up price to join is 500L but you get the fabulous 10 poses ‘The Rack” the latest release, as a group gift on joining. The thing is that The Rack is actually set for sale at 500L anyway, so by going the round about way of joining the group instead, you will get more for your dollars over the coming months…as the group promises monthly gifts, limited items, and also which I have actually seen Katey do, on occasion she will do a call out in the group asking for models for upcoming pose sets.

So if you are a fan anyway, and you also would have bought the latest release just like you do the others, this group is definitely win win.

I have doubled the rack so I could show you more of the poses at once, the other thing is that because it is prims, like anything I keep telling you, you can unpack it, and put the poses in your posestands as well, so you do get definitely lots of options. Just so it is clear I am wayyy  taller than Katey, so you can modify with resetting position etc, really easy, or stretch and resize the prims.

I used my trusty VR Studio HUD to lock my camera and give me the safety to stack my pics so I could show you all at once, I love that function as well as all the others it has.

Ballgowns and Ballgags

Ballgags and Ballgowns 1

Ballgags and Ballgowns 2

Before my gorgeous man Mel went away for Christmas, Newdoll, he and I were talking in skype as we do, being silly. I was yacking about what kind of posts I need to do next, and I was rambling on and every time I blurted out something, he would add something, so we ended up with Ball Gowns and Ball Gags, I wont tell you the others because you will want to do them :P.

So as I wont be with Mel for New Years I thought I could at least dress for it, and it is 19.5hours to go for me down here. The two gowns I am wearing are both from LeLutka, a last release for the year, and one that Thora had been working on for months, the gowns are exquisite and there are enough styles in the collection for you to find one you Must Have for new years. The top one has an over head cape like cover, but I wanted to expose my hair that I love which I don’t think you can get anymore but is too beautiful to hide, just as the Zoe from Maitreya is, both such elegant updo’s but in a non traditional way.

My favourite leather – even though to me they look like satin or whatever i say at the time – gloves are from 5th and oxford as usual, and I am so sad to see that they have reduced everything in the store to 50L and arepacking up for a while, some items i hope will be on marketplace because I love these gloves so much, they come in three lengths per colour, so don’t delay go run get them for 50L each.

The oh so yummy Harness Ballgag is by VR Foundry who makes my  VR Studio which is the only equipment I use, the ball gag fits the face superbly and back when it was made it won lots of awards, and is still awesome. It has all the bells and whistles a ball gag should, but my favourite part is that I can edit the ball to match my ballgown lol.

Todays wonderful stock image is from Amisha March from the Second Life Stock Images Group.

A post called Gidge

Meu3

So yesterday I got TP’d by Fiachra, and accepted immediately – not like him, when I send one he IM’s me with all the who’s what, where and why’s pfft. So anyway, I landed and instantly crashed, due to my draw distance being at 512. But as I was crashing I went oooo I wanted to come here all week, so how fortunate is that.

Newdoll had done an incredible post on the latest Mia Snow skin releases on the concept of Día de los Muertos – Day of the Dead – and the skins are just gorgeous. So I came back after turning my draw down – you can do that before logging back in by the way, hit ctrl P at log in screen and your preferences open up. When I got back in my head id assumed there must be an S or something for Fia to TP me, as a big crowd was standing around, and so I started clicking on all the semi rezzed prims, only to have a message come up second later that I had won the exclusive skin in the mini mania machine. HOW COOL WAS THAT!

I love it so much, I may just have to go back for more, there are also some incredible Zombie sets there to check out with Halloween just around the corner. The latest styles from Frou Frou just totally work it, especially the demeter on the left which has such a sleek bob effect in a totally different way about it. Perched on top is the Macabre top hat by Ripe, who are at Jewelry Fair, their items are just adorable in a dark and glorious way, the hat is so cute, and modify, so I was able to tint it red in edit linked to get it to match my whole look. The Macabre jewelry on the right also comes with that wicked monocle which even though I already had I would have searched high and low for, because it was actually also in one of Mia Snows ads, and looks so damn cool.

The Clothing I am wearing is from Call for Couture, and wow is that ever going to be an event and a half. The style on the left from Malt and on the right from Baby Cakes, perfect for the skins and hair, as the skins make up went so well with Malts Red and Black dress which because of all the layers can be broken up into perfect seperates, and then you have the Baby Cakes on the right with the adorable bronze trim that goes so well with the autumn crown that comes with the Gigi hair, it can totally be worn without too, so you have lots of options.

The stunning shoes are from SLink and are their Pret a Porter item for Call for Couture, the style being a mix of stilletto and wedge, giving you the lines of both in such an open way. I love the concept of that, it kind of makes your feet breathe a sigh of relief that as high as they are, they have a solid enough foundation to dance the night away…I myself thought it and Whimsy said so too, that the toes part would be even cooler as an open option with toes, much like was done with boots by Slink in the past.

Jewelry fair opened today, and yay for the grid going down, always a great sign for an event as big as this, means it will be a huge success. Much like how it rains every Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras in Sydney and then stops just moments before it begins lol.

Call for Couture opens on Sunday, so stay tuned because both events have so many incredible items I will be sharing over the duration.

I’m a woos, no it’s true, I have blubbered so many times this week it’s just whatever. But one thing that will absolutely tip me over emotionally, is the idea of a friend being hurt.  I even mean virtually, don’t ever ‘headshot’ gesture in front of me, coz I will go off my nut at you.

That’s why I am sure to get spanked for this post, especially from Newdoll who will be all indignant that I am wearing a cyber heart, as the idea of her wearing a steampunk one a few weeks ago, spun me out.

But that is the way it is, when you are constantly surrounded by people that reach out a little from the norm, we all do it in our group, and it rubs off. It’s funny because we all have such varying tastes, but end up loving such similar if not the exact same things, as you have seen recently in some of our cross over posts.

Mixing it all up, I went to [rQ] earlier today, and was playing with the hair, tails, ears and animations.

I think it makes so much sense for Hair Designers to make tails and ears, I mean you have the customers already wearing your hair, so why not give them the option of their other parts being in the same rich textures, and these Kitten tails and ears are just win win win.

One thing that I love doing is shooting animations. If you have read my posts in the past you will know this isn’t the first time I have done this, and also won’t be the last.

Red Queen has some incredible Anime AO’s , which I will be featuring over the next few posts, the pics today are taken from just one of them, and I could have taken dozens more pictures with them.

Magicka Moonites is the creator of the AO’s from Red Queen, and between her and Ruth Quan the creativity and energy is wonderful.

Tips to taking pictures of animations:

1. Unpack the AO just as though it is a box.

2. Load them into a posestand – I use the VR Professional Posestand and HUD.

3. Change animations just as though you would poses, but be patient and let them run through the whole animation before you start taking pictures.

4. If the animation has a lot of fast movement, go to Advanced > Character > Slow Motion Animations and click on it. This will slow them down so that you can shoot your pictures a little easier, do not forget to uncheck it when you are done.

Shooting animations is not only a lot of fun, but it actually extends your range of picture taking, giving more flexibility to the images, as well as actually giving you a lot more picture options in the one animation, which can actually save you money in the long run.

The other great part is that when you have animations to shoot with, things like incredibly flowing hair or tails such as the ones I have on today get captured in movement, and it really is fun to shoot that way.

Wanting to show off as much of the Red Queen skins as possible, not only do you get light and dark brows, but also a ‘Damage” look, which I thought was fun to wear after my obvious and so graceful fall.

These skins as did the first release, have such lovely toned bodies, and incredible make ups, making the eyes a definite feature to the skins make up.

I swung by Paradisis on my way home, always one for baring some skin, this store does not disapoint. I actually got much more than I shot, but you can see a bit of a mix in the items shown.

If you have been looking for more in the way of shorts with suspenders and sexy thigh high stockings, then the Hands Off set is a MUST HAVE. I am also definitely in love with the set shown in the top pictures which not only have creamy stockings but also thick rubberised and holey leggings over the tops.

The Wrapped Boots I am wearing in the top pics are boots that Ashia Tomsen of Inventory Episode keeps asking me if I have gotten them yet, I HAVE HAVE HAVE NOW. I told myself I had to wait a few weeks for those and some other items I have to go grab soon.

Boots like this are always so fun, they definitely add a spring to your step, and whether a little ball of energy like Ashia or tall like myself, they are such fun. Also fun for boots, and sexy by name and nature are the Kinky boots by Utopia, I have actually taken the shiny off these boots in edit, yes miracle of miracles they are mod, funnily enough many kinky things are :P.

It’s now officially Bandana Day, YAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY. So for the next 24 hours I and hopefully thousands of others will be “replacing their hair to show they care”.

You can still buy the Bandana’s at Hair Fair 2009 and as it is nearing the end it is alot easier to navigate around, so make sure you check out all the other fabulous booths, and consider buying up the styles that send part of their proceeds to Locks of Love.

The lovely full piece Yolanda swimwear I am wearing is by the talented Milla of MichaMi. This swimsuit is elegant and stylish, with a definite 70’s appeal.The colours are just beautiful for the sunshine, and will have your skin tone – whatever it is – looking fantastic.

I couldn’t think of anything better to mix with the Carmen Miranda inspired Bandana by Whimsy Winx of Virtually Dressed. She even put the lime in the coconut at the back, what’s not to love.

I went to pixeldolls tonight to grab something for Arabella Steadham of Arabella’s Amblings, and while we were there I poked my head in Sin Skins, which I haven’t done for a while. I saw a skin that was a must have for Whimsy, for a post she has planned coming soon, and then my eyes were captured by the skins I have blogged in the past, but the more creative ones of the range.

This is only one of the ones I just had to have, and with it’s sequined look detailing framing the eyes it is over the top yummy.

Speaking of yummy, I have to go now, Ashia just logged in and she has newness that is to die for.
