When it all goes away

So this is a crazy place, an abandoned cruise ship!  It’s like it all just went away, and just the old cruise ship sits there, broken in half.  I took several pics, and the lot is on my Flickr.  You can visit this cool sim here.  Also I look like Tilda in Badlands…just saying. For this lovely post, I’ve donned a great body con dress that just happens to be striped.  A personal love of mine, stripes.  The dress is by the fantastic Flowey, who is very kind about the fact that I’m stupid about re-delivery machines!  I love this dress, and decided while it’s totally sexy, the stripes called for a bit of comfort.  I paired it with my Reign skimmers ON tippy toes, and an old Dark Mouse standby Daisy necklace.  The hair is Wasabi Pills, one of my personal favorites.  For full outfit credits, check out after the cut!

Retrospective Mouse

Sometimes, as I’m browsing thru my inventory, I come across stuff that I’ve purchased and can’t find a home for.  I finally found a look for some grey wrapped tights from Vinyl called ‘Nope’ that I loved on sight, but had no idea how to make them mine.  I think this works.  A lovely dress from Ison that needed ‘something’ and the tights did it.  I paired them with a perfect pair of flat sandals from fri.day, and a lovely style from Doe.  I went blond because I bought 6 hairs thru the gacha and none of them were black!  Yes I make choices on occasion in SL!  A lovely choker with a butterfly completes the look..it may be a collar I DON’T KNOW OK! ;-).  Anyway, I love this look, it’s very Mouse.  A thoughtful, retrospective Mouse. As always, all my pictures can be found on Flickr.  And where is Mouse?  Find out and full credits for the outfit, after the cut. Mouse is in the lovely sim of Chez Moi

Classic Mouse


This is my favorite type of outfit, simple classic, perfect.  The beige swingy fun pants!  The striped wrap top!  Who did this wondrous perfection? CoCo of course.  Love the design, love the look, love it.  Fair warning, the pants and the slits breaks just a tad in certain poses.  But it’s so minimal, you’d only notice while taking pics!  So wear this to your next event and be swingy!  I paired this with a great hair do from Entwined, and older necklace from Half-Deer and some great pumps from Reign.  Love this! As always, you can find full outfit credits at the bottom of this article. ALSO, you can check out all my pics on Flickr!

Cute Dress!

I love me some Tres Blah.  This is an adorable thing, this dress.  It’s called the T-Shirt Dress, and it’s meant to be worn around the house, looking adorable.  I’ve paired it with a couple of useful things in my inventory, the casual slip sneakers from Reign and a lovely hair from Doe that I’ve blogged in a different color before.  As always, you can see all my pictures on my Flickr, and the full credits for this outfit are below the cut!  Pictures are taken in my trusty skybox, using my Tillie’s Pose Stand!

Love, Peace & FREE Stuff!

Ah what a lovely day for love and peace Mouse.  I found a pretty sim and indulged my oldbie sensibilities for my hippie phase that I never went thru.  As an 80’s child, I basically dressed like Madonna as a teen.  But upon finding these various looks, I was able to do retro 70s.  The hair is a stunning thing that I found at the Enchantment event, the theme was Rapunzel.  There were so many long hair choices that it was almost overwhelming.  This one from pr!tty stood out for me.  I paired it was some long long wide leg jeans from Gizza and a wonderful funky halter top from ArisAris/B&W.  My make up is all from the Catwa HUD, which really gives you a great bunch of options.  I added a unique ring from Zenith and then finished the outfit with a lovely old daisy bracelet of mine from years past!  And SURPRISE, if you’d like a FREE, old style, Dark Mouse bracelet of daisies from years past, I’ve put it out on my land in Minna for you.  … Read the restloveandpeacemouse1

At home with Mouse


If you’re like most SL’ers, you move into a new home monthly (weekly?).  I’ve moved into a new skybox, in my never-ending quest to have a large skybox, with low land impact! Found another one I’m liking so here I am.  Still decorating obviously.   As an oldbie, I recall the days when my ‘prims’ didn’t go very far.  I now have 197 prims on my little plot and damn it goes far.  I’m currently shopping for a low prim kitchen!  In the meantime, thought I’d take some quick shots of me at home.  I love love love balconies, so here I am, on my balcony.  Wearing a great Wasabi Pills hair (an FLF steal from a few weeks ago) some paper arrow white capri jeans and a great off one shoulder top from Emery “Renatta”.  Shoes are a cute bit from a lassitude & ennui gacha and the tattoo is Nanika.  Makeup is from my Catwa HUD and fav eye shadow from Matt & Gloss.  Come on over anytime at all ;-).  … Read the restSnapshot_013

Sexy Beast…err..I mean Mouse.


Who can resist the sexiest slip dress on the face of the earth?  Not this Mouse!  From a favorite designer of mine, ‘Just Because‘ who specializes in RAWRRRRRR.  She is currently a guest designer at Collabor 88.  Let’s make that full time, heh?  I paired it with an updo from Wasabi Pills at Chapter Four, yes my hair is red and it’s Mouse’s second favorite color.  Some jewelry from ERSCH I had in my inventory waiting for a home, and some sexy shoes from Vale Koer completes the look!  Oh and I switched out my eyes for a fun look from Izzies, ‘tokyo eyes.” As always all my pictures are on My Flickr. Outfit credits are at the end of the story. Oh and where is Mouse? Check it out after the cut. Mouse is in the fantastic sim of Paris de’taime. Outfit Credits & Slurls

Looking Cool


I’ve been a little slacking off on the blog, not thru loss of interest. Mainly time as I just finished moving my household…one husband, two cats, in real life! I didn’t have access to my gaming computer for 3 days! My god it was horrible. Then my HDMI cable died. Ah life. Anywho, I’m now back! YAY! I wanted to post some stuff I bought recently and loved. This outfit from ms. Chelsea, is, as usual, perfection itself. Mouse looks pretty sexy, if I may say so myself! I added some sleek and sexy hair from Opale, a new to me designer and some new glittery eye shadow from Matt & Gloss. Loving it. The sky high heels are from Glamistry and were an FLF steal. As always all my pictures are on My Flickr. Outfit credits are at the end of the story. Oh and where is Mouse? Check it out after the cut. Mouse is in the fantastic sim of “An Uncertain Destiny.”

Spring Flings

So here is me finally finding the look I was going for, and putting a bunch of stuff together that’s been hanging about in my inventory, without a home.  First off, this great hair style from Doe.  Rather casual…to me, and I wanted it to go with a dressed down look.  The leggings from miss chelsea and sleeveless top from Coco fits the bill perfectly.  THEN FLF happened, and I finally had the shoes I knew would work.  This great style from Livalle came in basic black and the red polka dots style for $50L. You can’t beat that with a stick! The red worked perfectly with my look.  I decided to pull in a bit more red with the great clutch from Cest la vie.  A note about the great clutch…you can adjust the size!  This was fantastic because when I first rezzed it, I thought, damn that’s too big for my avi.  Welp, I thought hey maybe…and YEP there was a size change script in it.  Good deal.  Last but not least I’m not super close in these pics but I’m wearing another great new release from Matt & Gloss, Hazy Hues eye shadow!  … Read the restMouse_Polkadots2

Mad Mouse

I visited the Mad Pea sim and they were having an Easter hunt!  Lot’s of kids (and adults!) roaming around with their Easter baskets.  It was adorable.  What a lovely sim.  I took some pics there for fun in this very casual outfit.  Long hoodie sweatshirt is from LAKSHMI.  Comfy.  I loved the flyaway necklace grabbed from the ERSCH gacha and paired the whole thing with my trusty Fatewear sneakers.  The Wasabi Pills hair I LUCKED out on pulling the monotones after only 5 tries at The Chapter Four event.  As always, you can check out my FLICKR page for all my pics.  Outfit credits and more pictures are after the cut!

A walk in the woods


What’s up friends? I’m having a lovely walk thru the woods, and I came upon these lovely pups and naturally had to hang out for a bit. Love this dress, it’s from Insomnia, and I love me a pink leather jacket. I also adore the pink/brown combo. It’s a thing with me. The high heeled clogs work beautifully, with a perfect gold filigree accent, from Pure Poison. I focused on the face in the next picture to highlight a fantastic new eye liner from Matt & Gloss, my new fav. You’ll find this “elegant” liner at the Chapter Four Event, note the subtle double line on the inner eye. Last but not least great new hair from Entwined, which I snagged at Fameshed. So me!

Just too pretty, thank you COCO.

Ah COCO why do I love you so.  It might be that every time I’m looking for a super classic look, you come thru.  You restore my faith!  This outfit I would wear in real life!  (Well not the shoes, I fall over in heels) but the rest – totally.    I even HAVE this outfit in RL.  A bodysuit and straightleg jeans.  I love it.  LOVE IT <3.  I’ve paired it with new hair from Elikatira, a STEAL for FLF, a cute bag that I finally found an outfit for from inbue, and these stunning heels from Addams that I found at Shoegasm, I mean Shoetopia!    As always, you can find all my pictures on Flickr, and outfit credits are after the cut.  Make up is from my Catwa HUD and jewelry is an old Dark Mouse set.

Just do it. FLF Rocks.

So, how do you do casual in SL?  This is pretty much my go to look, especially if I’m shopping or hanging with friends.  Or building, or re-decorating my skybox.  I’m literally always redecorating my sky box. I love this great casual set by miss Chelsea.  It fits perfectly.  This whole look is pretty much Fifty Linden Fridays (FLF), and if you’re new to SL, you simply must join this group.  Great fun can be had for as little as 50L, and you get to discover a whole bunch of new shops in SL. The hair is Wasabi Pills and the flip flops are by Livalle, and if they can’t get you thru the entire SL summer, I don’t know what will!  For those not in the know, FLF is a 24 hour sale.  The list goes out roughly Thursday evenings, or 12:00 a.m. Friday, and the sale features a variety of shops.  The owners of the shop will put out a new OR an older item in a new color or ‘refreshed’ somehow, for the low low price of $50L.  It’s a fun sale, and can be even more fun if you take a friend as you teleport around the grid.  … Read the restSporty_Mouse

Mistakes were made

So I had a rough night and got lost.  Mistakes were made.  Not with my hair of course, it’s fricken perfect (but why is your hair red, mouse? don’t ask!!!).  But other than that, what happened? I’m a mess!  Definitely stumbling away, this is the walk of shame… The perfect hair is from Dichotomy and the great messed up business attire is from NYU.  I love both.  Especially the shirt falling off my shoulder.  FOR SHAME MOUSE.  Shame. Shame. Shame. As always, all my pics can be found on Flickr.  All outfit credits are at the bottom of this post! Where in the heck is Mouse, and how’d she get so lost?

Focus on Eyebrows: Oh Mouse, what should I buy?

So I’d like to continue doing posts on comparing various products, and want to talk about another of my obsessions in SL.  The eyebrow.  I love eyebrow appliers, and I’m quite picky about the eyebrows Mouse wears.  In this post I’ll show you pictures of eyebrows I find quite pleasing, and also, talk about what I’d love to see a bit more from designers.  I’ve photographed Mouse in the same shot, using CAL windlight, with 8 different brows.  Please note that some are demos, and some are ones that I already own.  You be the judge!  If you do like what you see, I’ve put the SLURL to the store where you can purchase these brows in the caption on each picture. On a secondary note, I’d like to draw your attention to a NEW TO ME store, Matt & Gloss.  They make MESSY eyelashes.  I love these so much, because essentially, our SL avatars are already perfect and need no help.  Subtle differences brought to a face by the presence of something not quite right can make for a more unique avatar in a sea of stunning.  … Read the restrs_1024x759-160627110556-1024.Eyebrows-Beauty-Rehab-Overplucking.jl.062716

Bella Signora Italiana! or…Oh Italy!

Ah Bella!  I don’t know why but this whole post is built around a dress that I like very much  from Ana Markova.  What a fantastic texturing job!  I love it.  This dress makes me think of old movies in Rome where Sophia Loren slaps someone’s face.  Does not matter WHO!  This dress makes me nostalgic.   I paired it with, kismet really, a great hair from Clawtooth called Cherry Bomb.  Oh and the other big change?  I’m wearing a different skin!  SEE I can be different!  It was in my February Powder Pack and it’s Leta by Modish.  It’s simply lovely.  Great jewelry from CAE and Maxi Gossamer finishes the look.  Ok, who can I slap?

Skin Fair (Part Deux) – Octavia Sim

On 15th March 2017 · By Mouse · With Leave a comment
In Dark Mouse, Fashion, Second Life · Tags , , , ,
So, I finally made my way to the Octavia Sim, and after a bit of a tussle with my LETMEIN Hud, I managed to get it.  That’s right it’s still packed at the skin fair!  So what are my thoughts here?  Oh oh!  Rules: No shape change, must fit Catwa head, all demos, only skins that appeal to me, static pose, CALWL in Firestorm, photos not retouched!  Oh also I should let you all know, I counted and have tried on 15 different skins from skin fair.  I eliminated some right off the bat, as not working for me, but for Octavia Sim, I actually decided to cut out 2 that I LIKED, but I didn’t want to overwhelm with the post.  The two I eliminated were not working for me from a ‘tone’ perspective, but they were both lovely skins.   Where in the world is Mouse?  I’ll tell you right off, I’m in my fabulous skybox that I decorated after Hethr suggested it looked a little sad. See! No longer sad!  I only have 192 LI.   I really should get a bit more land if I’m gonna keep at this!… Read the rest
