Dreamy, dreaming, dreamer…


I imagined this particular dress should be worn on a starry night, spinning round and round.  Of course in SL it’s possible to make this dream come true, but I would have needed a spinning emoticon, and then somehow figured out how to capture the shot.  I can only keep trying!

Of course I’m dressed once more by one of my personal favorite designers, Tres Blah.  I’m not sure WHAT precisely she does, but I’m thinking that she’s a mesh rigging wiz, her dress fits my new SLink mesh body perfectly.  The hair is an FLF exclusive from Elikatira for only 50L.  My skin as always, is Lara Hurley.  The bracelet I’m wearing in the shot is my own from Dark Mouse, which I took the liberty of tinting the rose pink, to capture the pink from the rose on the dress.  Easy enough to do. even though you can barely see it in these pictures… ah well. Credits are below the pics, and as always, you can see the full series of pictures on my flickr.… Read the restdreamy5

The Aftermath – the mesh body, part two.

So I do love my mesh body. Now I need clothes for it. I have pretty much ALL standard size clothing in my inventory, and as they say, do please try the demos! UGH! Welp I’ll be a shopping fool for a while.


About the outfit. I’m wearing a fringed top that I got from the Uber event, and I was looking for something to wear with it, and settled on high waisted shorts. Confession time…the shorts DON’T QUITE FIT me. I tried the demo. I didn’t look well enough, and as a result, I didn’t notice that the inner thigh is sticking out a bit. You can’t see it in these photos, because I chose photos that didn’t advertise this fact. I think these shorts from Teefy are FABULOUS. But, I should have been more careful in my purchase. No tricks worked, making my thighs thinner only resulted in me looking like a weirdo. I tried every size but couldn’t fit the new mesh body. No luck, I messed up good. Ah well.

The boots are from fri.day, and I’m pretty sure I got these during an FLF special.… Read the restmouse2

Taking the plunge – the mesh body

Ok so, I’ve finally gone and done it.  I finally got a mesh body.

I got a bunch of demos, tried a variety and finally settled on the Physique Mesh Body by SLink.  I like the body quite a bit, I already have the feet and hands, and I trust that the body will work for me. I found that I could play with the SL sliders and adjust various things to make it as close to my original shape as possible (already pretty much a standard medium).  I already had the Lara Hurley applier for my favorite skin, so that worked too.  I realized a couple of things as I started taking pictures of my hot new body (because let’s face facts..all bodies in SL are hot).  I would be spending a lot less time in photoshop fixing ragged edges on my avatar.  This can only be a good thing.  Clothing FITS me better.  Siddean provides free updates.  In other words, it’s all good, I can hardly go wrong. I thought that the price was reasonable!   And I’m already so far behind the curve on mesh that it was time to just do it.  … Read the restmouse5

Practical Magic in Second Life

I have a few movies that are on my all time favorites, and Practical Magic is one of them. I’ve always loved the movie, because the idea of a family of witches living in a stunning house by the Sea is well…the life. In the outfit I’m wearing today, there’s a bit of simplicity, but I like to think it’s something Gillian would wear. The baby dragon on my shoulder is because it’s Second Life and I CAN! It’s from one the designers that I personally fangirl, Halogen Magic and Half Deer, a perfectly placed whimsy of a shop in Second Life.These are some of my spoils from recent shows, specifically Arcade and Uber.  I had a bit of trouble taking these pics. I couldn’t find the right windlight, couldn’t figure out the right angles with my baby dragon. Ah well. Enjoy, the credits are below the pics.  I also posted these on my Flickr, and used a fun comic book filter on them because I love comic books.

Orange is the new black….


Sorry couldn’t resist the pun.  This dress is probably being blogged all over the SLUniverse, because it’s perfect.  It comes in a variety of colors (actually TONS of colors), but I’m partial to orange, so there you are.  It’s from Tres Blah, literally the only place I’ll buy anything without trying the demo (of course I don’t RECOMMEND this, I’m just saying it always holds true for me…). It also includes fittings for Maitreya and SLink bodies.  The hair is from Elikatira, and I snagged it at last weeks FLF, I hope you did too.  The shoes are also FLF, but this weeks, and all I can say is, try not to miss Fifty Linden Fridays in Second Life. It’s always a fun, goofing around shopping experience where you’ll see people you know or haven’t seen in a while!  It’s always featured on Seraphim, so go look at the gallery on Seraphim, and make your decisions quickly. I’m not sure if either the hair or the shoes will be in the stores at full price now.  … Read the restmouseinorange1

Show some skin…

So I confess, this whole outfit came about because of the Teefy Bustier. It’s just about perfect to me. I love the way it’s made, textured, looks. I love the nude/pink color. I actually spent a bit of time trying to finding a fun skirt that worked with it. The skirt is from Blueberry and I love it too. This is probably a bit less clothing that I typically wander around the grid in. I’m usually out in a t-shirt and cut-offs. The hair I’m wearing is from Ohmai Salon, and I picked it up at Hair Fair! As always, credits are below the pics and for the full set, check out my flickr!

Verdigris

So my favorite colors are blue and green. I love orange of course, but blue and green just do it for me. I saw this beautiful top on Plurk from a creator friend, and had to have. I love love love the colors. I saw the skirt at Collabor88 and thought, KISMET!  The hair is new from Magika another one of my favorite designers. I did a bit of photoshop to bring all the colors into alignment, but they are generally what is shown, but as always, get a demo! See below for outfit credits and you can see a few more pics from this series on my Flickr. Follow me! I’ll follow you back I swear!

Yes, I have them.  Even in Second Life.  Actually mostly in SL.  I find myself staring around my skybox and thinking, damn I have got to finish decorating.  But at least I got the bedroom done (with a little help from a flash sale at Apple Fall).  I think I’ll do some more surfing on the web.  As per usual, outfit credits after the pictures.  Also check out the full series on my Flickr.

So, sometimes I come across a sim that just MUST be called out for its beauty. I visited Blue Lotus Okiya – Renge Koyama, Renge Koyama (207, 130, 62) recently, and found it to be, beautiful, tranquil and elegant. In other words, perfect. I enjoyed exploring the sim, there are a few shops there too, but I was busy taking pics so I didn’t shop too much. A few things about what I’m wearing. The top is at Collabor88 from Fishy Strawberry. The shoes are from Pure Poison, and represent not only adorable shoes, but an excellent value, as they come with a HUD so you get 6 colors! The bag is from David Heather. It’s a FREE gift in the lobby of the store (which I found thru FLF). I was looking for a striking bag in that color, so I was particularly tickled. All in all the outfit works for me! As always, credits below the pics.

I love it when a plan comes together. I have had this tank from the Secret Store in my inventory FOREVER, and have not found the right thing to wear with it.

So I went to a bunch of SL fairs. And promptly got overwhelmed and lost. So I ended up at the Cherry Blossom Fair which seems manageable. I picked up this adorable dress for $59L. Okay so, there are a few stretch problems where the poses break the skirt. Doesn’t make it any less adorable.

I’ve been shopping around a bit and the thing I can’t find is white jeans and capri’s. Do I really WANT capri’s? I’m not sure! That’s not what’s happening here though. I saw this fringe jacket and had to have. I love leather jackets, and I ALMOST bought the blue one. But my innate practicality asserted itself and said, get the black, you can wear it with more. And so, here I am, simply dressed! Credits below the pic.
