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? Mouse is lost in this scary sim… Woodbury Falls.  Hey why are you looking behind me? Outfit Credits & Slurls

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? As always, you’ll find all my pictures on my Flickr, and full outfit credits at the end of this post! Where in the world is Mouse?  Check it out after the cut!

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

Every Princess needs a crown.

Okay so this post is not about a crown.  It’s about the rare phenomenon of Gacha. Here’s how it goes…I play a gacha, and desperately want a common.  I figure it will take me a couple of times.  I immediately get 3 rares in a row.  I play a gacha, I desperately want the rare…you get the rest.  I feel like I have to have my gacha voodoo working better, so that I can fool the gacha into thinking I want the commons and vice versa…or something!  Anywho.  I played for this lovely jewelry…wanted the necklace.  I got 3 rare crowns, and 2 pairs of earrings before someone on plurk said…”Why don’t you wait and get the common on MarketPlace.” DOH!  Anywho, I got this beautiful rare crown.  It seemed to go really well with some hair I picked up a while ago by Doe, and designer I know from previous brand, in a galaxy far far away!   The dress was another gacha.  I will be brutally honest.  I’m unsure about this dress.  … Read the restMouse_Story1

Skin Fair – Day One, Chanterelle Sim

So I love new skins as much as the next person, but I do tend to lean towards a single skin, and typically stick with it for a while.  My current love affair is with Lara Hurley.  But it’s skin fair time, so I thought I’d let you know the ones that I prefer.  First off, the rules. I did not change or tweak my shape and I only tried skins that are made for my Catwa head.  Typically when I change to a new skin, I tweak a bit to suit the skin.  Second, I did not BUY any of these skins, so there are demo marks.  Always Always Always demo a skin.  Third, I tried a lot of skins.  I’m showing you the ones I prefer.  Typically, that’s going to be a pale skin, heavy brow and a ‘softer’ appearance.  I’m in a static pose, using CALWL  in Firestorm, photos are not retouched.  Last bit…I was on the Chanterelle sim side of skin fair.  I’ll get to the other side in a few days.  Okay?  here we go! So who’s the winner here?  … Read the rest

Oh my god, I love Josh!

Ah yes, and so we come to it.  The day that my av reminds me of Clueless.  It was bound to happen.  It’s the hair.  Which is FABULOUS.  This hair works in so many different ways, and can go with a lot of different looks, but since I love casual in SL, that’s the way we are going!  The hair is Amuse Me, by Magika, of course.  The totally FUN bag and Umbrella necklace are from Zenith and was a gifty from a plurk friend, Sparkle Skye, check out her Flickr page! The glasses are my own from that old chestnut, Dark Mouse ;-).   The hoodie (damn, I love a good hoodie) is from Blueberry, but you’ll have to pick it up at Collabor88. The cargo pants are utter perfection from Rebel Hope, where you literally can never go wrong.  The whole series of these pictures are on my Flickr!  The outfit credits can be found at the bottom of this article.  Happy Shopping! Where in the world is Mouse?  Find out after the cut! Mouse is at a beautiful art sim called,  Cutting Butterfly.… Read the restMouse_Josh1

what is joy?

A lot of times, when I’m doing pictures in SL, I try to get my av to convey a certain emotion, which is not easy because my av mostly has resting bitch face!  However, since I’ve gotten the new bento head, I’ve branched out a bit more and I find myself playing with the animation HUD that came with my Catwa head.  It does inspire me to consider buying the more advanced one from Catwa, but I just blew 3K at the ARCADE on a single gacha sooooo…It can wait a bit.  In the mean time, I have been playing with the animation HUD.  I find that getting a good action shot might take some practice.  However, if I train the camera on my av in an already good pose, I can get a good emotive feeling.  That’s what happened here.  I love these pics, they are pretty much what I want ALL my pics to be.  They bring me joy, so they are JOY!  The lighting is what I want, the poses, the landscape etc.  It helps to have great stuff to show off.  I picked up the outfit from Coco at Fameshed, a favorite event and designer of mine.  … Read the restmousejoy1

Star Gazing

So while I’m re-acquainting myself with SL these days, I’m also discovering that I already have some favored designers.  In this post, another one of those.  I love Just Because.  There are several reasons this is one of my favorite brands, and the first is that I ADORE the styles.  But the absolute best reason is that I am always pleased with the fit.  I have not demo’d a Just Because purchase in FOREVER.  That’s because the SLink size always fits.  ALWAYS.  So it’s a brand I’d highly recommend.  Today, Mouse is wearing a cute dress with scarf, the Emily Dress.  I’ve gotten blue because I love blue.  The hair is from Magika, another favorite and the boots are  a gacha forever ago, from Bueno!    As always you’ll find the full outfit credits for Mouse staring at the stars after the cut, and these pictures and more can be found on my Flickr!  I’m adding a new feature to my blog, and it’s something I should have done long ago.  … Read the reststargazing_mouse2

You better wake up.

So you may wonder why I would title this post, “you better wake up!.”  It has nothing to do with the current political climate at all…It has to do with me believing that my outfit is a bit like Sandy’s last outfit in Grease.  HAHAHA!  Anywho.  I found a new store, and it’s great.  It’s called Miss Chelsea. I dropped in while doing my regular Fifty Linden Friday route, which as always, is a great little event to find new stores.  I cannot stress this enough.  FRF is one of those events where you actually GO to the main stores and not only pick up a deal, but get to peek at the stores offerings.  Like everyone, I shop events.  But I really like checking out main stores too!  There were at least 3 new to me stores in Friday’s event, and I love finding new spots to shop.  The top and tights are from Miss Chelsea, and the sky high heels are from Breathe. Hair to love is Monso and the fantastic tattoo is White Widow.… Read the restwakeup_mouse6

The eyes have it.

So I’ve been hunting and hunting for eyes that were…errr…me.  And YAY!  Finally I found them.  And the winner is, Banana Banshee “Hely” eyes.  I’m sort of weirdly picky about eyes.  I could have gotten a HUD with 1500 different options.  I tried a demo and was lost in about 5.5.  I have this thing about Mouses’ eyes.  First off, her eyes are grey, with a hint of blue.  A bit steely.  They go well with black hair.  I’d actually found a few that were good enough, and even tried some of Banana Banshee’s other eyes, but nothing was working. Then found BB’s latest at Lost & Found and these are perfect.  YAY.  Oh and they were free.  The grey eyes are the demo! The other eye colors are fantastic too so go check them out. The rest of the outfit is a comfy cardigan from BlueBerry and some great hair from Doe, a new to me brand that I find I like a lot and will prolly go hit up the main store, since the last 2 styles have been from Gachas.  … Read the resteyeshaveit_mouse1

Finding Unicorns

Well some days you just don’t feel like working, heh?  That’s me these days, and so when I stumbled across a mystical being, who am I to pass up the chance to hang out?  Honestly I can’t recall where I am, just that I literally stumbled onto this and starting snapping pics.  I’m slumming it in the hooded sweatshirt from Vinyl, a new to me store, and a short fun casual skirt to go with.  As always, the outfit credits are after the pics and all these photos and more can be found on my Flickr!

Lovesick

So one of the things about mesh heads that you have to deal with are appliers.  An applier, if you don’t know yet (there’s got to be someone lol) are little boxes you attach to your avatar, click a button and walla!  You have eye makeup, lashes….lipstick.  You also have tattoos!  So whilst playing around with my February Powder Pack new appliers, I came across a cute one that puts “lovesick” across your temple.  I can’t figure out why it won’t go away.  NO WORRIES!!! I’m going with it.  Looks cute, though..sad.  I’m not currently lovesick, though I imagine that I COULD BE!  Any who, the other parts of this post that I love.  This jacket combo.  I feel like I’m out, wandering around the cold cold world, but snug and warm in my jacket. Other things I like in this post, the hair by Mithral, I wish I could get my hair to look like that in RL, and the tweed boots from S@BBiA. … Read the restmouse_lovesick2

Opening Doors

So, I’m trying to keep a positive attitude these days.  In Second Life and in Real Life.  It has me thinking about doors.  Opening doors on the future, closing doors on the past.  Moving forward.  So that’s the theme of this post.   Lots of beautiful things to be had in SL these days.  I needed all new makeup for my new Catwa head, so I purchased the February Powder Pack Subscription Box.  Buying it before the deadline is 1/2 price – now it’s at full price.   I thought it was a good deal, gave me lots of cool make up for a low price.  Quality varies, so caveat emptor!  The shoes are from Livalle, and you really cannot beat the deal, which was a FATPACK for $50L for Fifty Linden Fridays.  You can view all my photos, past and present, on my Flickr account.  As usual outfit credits with SLurls are below.

A new SL me.

So I FINALLY found a mesh head that I like,  with the help of Bento.  It’s been months, I know forgive me.  I could find little to be excited about over the last few months.  Then one night when I was bored, I decided to try the Catwa Mesh Head, Kimberly, with Bento capabilities.  What a great thing.  I was able to pick a head that I felt was close to my old SL face, and tweak it to look like ‘me.’  Anywho, here are the results!  As always see below for full credits!  Pics are also posted to my Flickr!

Cut my hair!

Haha, only kidding.  Check out this SHORT hair cut, it’s dreamy!  I’m in love!  I call this, ‘earrings’ hair.  As in, you can wear your SL jewelry with this hair!  I used to scour the world for this kind of hair when I had my shop running full tilt, so I could take pictures that showed my jewelry.  We need more earrings hair!  I’m also wearing a top from Just Because that I’ve been meaning to blog for a while, but couldn’t find the right things to go with.  The capri style Gossip jeans are a steal from The Dressing Room, which is a great venue to find inexpensive pieces for your SL Wardrobe.  The Pure Poison shoes are way too cute, and come with a color HUD and damned if I can recall where I got them, but I KNOW it was a recent event.  I have no memory for events, its sucks to be me.  But fortunately, I do know how to figure out who made something, so the credits for this outfit are below the pictures!  You can also check out the full series of pics for this set on my Flickr.… Read the restmouse1

Nymph Dreams

Ah feeling absolutely dreamy today.   I’m wearing a stunning jewelry set called Nymph Flowers by Yummy, and let me tell you, I know SL jewelry and this set is stunning.I believe the set is at the I LOVE RP event  Since the set feels so pink to me, I decided to pair it with this rather bohemian top by Just Because.  I grabbed my old but trusty wide leg jeans from Maitreya (still a classic) and pair of sahweeet Ricelli heels.  My hair is new by Clawtooth (you know you want it, go get it…) and my skin is, as usual, my favorite, Lara Hurley.  Full credits are below the pics, and the full series of these pictures can be found on my flickr.  Love to you all!
