Mornings Are Slow

I am behind on so much blogging work, but right now I’m lazy so I thought I would just sit around my house and do nothing. Well, that’s something, anyway, right? Itsonlyfashionblog.com

Fae on Your Eyes

If you don’t love to play a Barbie Girl Living In a Barbie World, maybe a bit of FAE is more your taste? Banana Banshee, one of my fave eye stores has some really pretty colors for eyes in both pastels and vivids for you Fae out there. Fae is plural also right? Like Jedi. Right?

It’s Getting Hot

I decided the perfect way to start my week this Monday was to take a dip in my pool. Most people might wait until Memorial Day in the states to christen the pool but I figure my pool is exempt from such provincial traditions. I’m sporting a new bathing suit, and I can never have enough of them. This one is actually FREE if you join the Boom Clothing company VIP group – WHICH INCREDIBLY is also free to join. Aranel Ah is back in SL full force and she’s released this as a little teaser to get you come check out her goods! I suggest you do so! Is there really any better way to start your week than this? I’d like to know what it is. I think this is it. Also, I may be sporting some nip. I can’t decide. Side nip? Itsonlyfashionblog.com

Second Life Photos: What I Like #10

Out on the Edge by Isabella.N. I like Out on the Edge by Isabella.N. even though it gives me an uncomfortable reminder of when I fell off a cliff overlooking the Missouri River. Lucky for me, the face was perpendicular so I bounced a few times on the way down, slowing the momentum. Bad memories aside, this photo evokes other emotions as well, the exhilaration of challenging yourself, of being ahead and apart from the madding crowd, of being out on the edge. It is also a beautiful example of the Golden Ratio at work. I’m Sorry by Marion Beresford I like I’m Sorry by Marion Beresford. I like the bright light and the subsequent contrast between the brightness of the right that blows out the background and the shadow on the right that her hair fades into. However what I like most of all is the emotions projected by her eyes, the tilt of her head, the furrowed brows. I like this avatar’s face.

I’ve Hired Out My Cleaning

Well despite having a weak spot for fun cleaning accessories, I was reminded that I have this delightful vacuum from my friend Kitty and decided to PUT IT TO WORK today. After all, I’ve got quite a bit to get done and I can’t be worrying about sweeping. Get to work kitty! I’ve been baking this morning. I should probably invite folks over because if I eat all of this I’m going to be big as a house. Today I’m showing off the complete outfit you can pick up from AZUCHI at the Epiphany.  When Sands told me he was making a denim jacket for Epiphany I thought “oh nice”. But what he’s ended up releasing is so cute and fun for spring, I’m delighted. Shoes, socks, skirt, top or jacket – any of these pieces are  a win. I love the colors and tones of these pieces. I’m going to have to go make a run at Epiphany to see what else is awesome and necessary in my SLife. Happy Sunday Girls. Make it a good one. Itsonlyfashionblog.com

She turned to the sunlight and shook her yellow head, and whispered to her neighbor: “Winter is dead.”

I don’t even remember when I purchased Filter Forge®, the popular third-party companion to PhotoShop® that lets you apply fancy filters to your photos. It was long ago, maybe 2008 or 2009. Anyway, I don’t even use PhotoShop anymore as my laptop has no CD/DVD drive to allow me to install it. With materials, shadows, mesh bodies, and all the other controls we have over our raw shots, there’s no real need for PhotoShop either, except for the super fancy portraits with painted hair and so on. I still use Filter Forge from time to time for the fun of it. I just open photos directly in the software. Anyway, it’s 80% off today so I thought I would play with it and let you all know that it’s deeply discounted. Please note, that is an ordinary link with no clever code that gives me some compensation for promoting their software. I just have the basic package, the cheapest one, and it has everything I need. I don’t need to do pictures bigger than 3000 by 3000, so it’s enough for me.… Read the rest“She turned to the sunlight And shook her yellow head, And whispered to her neighbor: "Winter is dead.”

Fingers Crossed

Bento makes me happier than I thought it would. My happiness comes from things like these poses from Gingerfish that have Bento hand movements built right in. When Bento first came out, I was dubious, afraid that more complexity would strain my already struggling computer to the breaking point. I also moaned about one more thing to learn. I dawdled. I did not rush to buy bento hands immediately. I waited hoping it would all be figured out by someone else or even just go away. But it didn’t and both Slink and Maitreya released hands optimized for Bento and my computer did not fold over in a faint. So here we are. Animators are busy adapting and creating poses that capitalize on this new expressiveness and I am wondering why I was such a grouch about it. I guess I must be getting crotchety in my old SLage. I kind of fell in several sorts of love with the skirt and jacket from Emery. The Stella skirt has two options with a latte stripe or a pearl stripe. The Bastet jacket has bold lapels that give it a relaxed, casual air while being very fashion conscious.… Read the rest“You don't have to be a big name to do big things.

The Heavenly Spheres make music for us,

The Poetry of the Spheres are on display at LEA4 – a celebration of music and poetry in a pastoral setting with lovely ancient ruins. From the description of the sim: Legend has it that the Ancient Gods of the Greeks have abandoned this realm, but evidence of their existence can be found above, in celestial spheres. These signs and symbols, both direct and abstract, are also reflected in Gustav Holst’s 1918 orchestral suite, The Planets, Op 32. You can explore each of the seven movements, representing the corresponding planets, by teleporting from the Olympus Island up to that particular sphere: Mars, the Bringer of War
Venus, the Bringer of Peace
Mercury, the Winged Messenger
Jupiter, the Bringer of Jollity
Saturn, the Bringer of Old Age
Uranus, the Magician
Neptune, the Mystic There you will find a music link station for the appropriate movement – click on it to open a link to the music so you can play it on your browser while you explore.Read the restThe Heavenly Spheres make music for us,

What I Like #9

2017.0404 by Irukia Levee I like 2017.0404 by Iruki Levee. Her control of color caught my eye first.  There is the desaturated skin and background in shades of gray that make the bold reds, yellows, and blues pop. Then there is the beautiful free-form setting as though she is resting in a cloud, though clouds don’t show shadows (I’ve tried.) Then, the composition fully embraces the Fibonacci Spiral. It all comes together in an amazingly powerful photo.
#2 Lisan Lady in Black by Mafalda Diesel Aαlim. I like #2 Lisan Lady in Black by Mafalda Diesel Aαlim. I like her use of complementary colors and the way she creates layers in front and behind the subject. It’s simple but effective and draws my eye with the bold choices she made. Not a Word by Lea Oh. I like Not a Word by Lea Oh. This is a powerful portrait and breaks the most common rule of composition: Place your subject off-center. The thing is, rules are meant to be broken when they can.… Read the rest2017.0404 by Irukia Levee

This picture is illegal in Russia

Russia recently banned this meme of Putin in makeup that many were using to advocate for gay rights. In recent years, while the LGTBIQ community in the United States have seen some victories while still facing challenges and efforts to roll back their rights, sexual minorities have been experiencing ever-increasing oppression in such disparate places as Uganda and Russia. This is not a coincidence. As the Christianists have lost ground in the United States, they have exported their anti-gay agenda. This week, news came out about concentration camps in Chechnya–think about that. Russia has  passed legislation against gays, Uganda criminalized homosexuality and nearly passed a death penalty for homosexuality though we held off by pressure from Europe and the United States. Scott Lively is currently being sued for crimes against humanity for his role in advocating the repressive Ugandan actions, including advocating the death penalty for gays.… Read the restStop Homofobia meme banned in Russia

Behold the Hands

One of my favorite things about NYU is that they usually release as separates and the lovely camisole and lace skirt released at faMESHed are true to form. I love separates because it’s fun to mix and match. The pieces come with multiple colors selected by HUD. These lovely shoes are from Kenvie for Shoetopia. They can be customized at the heels, the shoe, and the straps.  And then there are the hand poses, released by oOo Studio for Fifty Linden Friday they are worth far more…which is a good thing since Friday has passed. But anyway, thanks to Bento and posemakers creating elegant poses Montaigne’s quote about hands is now true in SL as well. “Behold the hands, how they promise, conjure, appeal, menace, pray, supplicate, refuse, beckon, interrogate, admire, confess, cringe, instruct, command, mock and what not besides, with a variation and multiplication of variation which makes the tongue envious.”  My jewelry is from Kunglers for The Crossroads.… Read the restBehold the hands, how they promise, conjure, appeal...

Movie Night With A Very Old Friend

There are a handful of people in SL that’ve been around forever and my friend Eb is one of them. He came over to visit, and we gossiped about his new loves and what’s going on in his SL. I gotta get some couches with friends hanging out poses because I was cycling through poses and they were all way too “I don’t like you like that” for us to chill and talk. It was amusing to chill and talk about other women though, in what looked like wildly romantic poses, but that’s just not us. He’s my second oldest friend still on the grid and it was fun to chill with him. And now I’m all caught up on his romantic life! Thanks for being a man model Eb Itsonlyfashionblog.com

Poolside with Friends

I am notorious for wearing my lingerie as swimwear in SL and I truly have no plans to stop any time soon.  I took advantage of my new pool from Trompe Loeil to prove this yet again this morning. It’s really a perfect morning on our island to just do nothing, so that’s what I’m gonna do. Nothing. Just me and some small friends. If you want an icy beverage, come on over. I’ll be here all day.

What I Like #8

Wandering World 484 by Nekonuko. I like Wandering World 484 by Nekonuko. The bottom of the windows fall exactly 2/5ths from the bottom, but the real magic in this picture is its impressionist painterly feeling created with an overlay that adds texture as well as making the lighting more complex and richer. The color story is beautiful, too, with the yellows to balance the blues. Untitled by Kiiko. I like Untitled by Kiiko. I love the interplay of shadow and light. The Rules of Thirds is used in bounding the dark right edge and the placement of the subject. The green and red are complementary colors. It’s well-composed in framing, color, and lighting.
Untitled by Jammie Hill. I like Untitled by Jammie Hill. This is a great example of geometry making a picture powerful. The geometry is reinforced by the x crossed in the background. It’s very minimalistic which suits the subject and yet, underneath that simplicity is a complex arrangement of geometry

There Isn’t Much Time Left

Maitreya released LARA 4.0 with BENTO Hands and that’s big news on the grid today. In other news you’ve probably got minutes left before COLLABOR88 tears down so really, hop to it if you haven’t. I’ve got my coffee, I’ll wait while you run over. I’ve got a bit of shopping to do myself and some other things, it’s a busy grid life day for this girl. Mostly I think I need to do another inventory purge. I don’t know how people keep their inventories small. It always amazes me. Oh, I gotta take this call.

Butterflies are Free To Fly

I woke up full of energy and right about then I realized I had new goodies from RC Cluster to provide some MUCH needed activity in my SLIFE! I’m out hunting butterflies in my beautifully landscaped islet this morning. Thanks for the greenery Cajsa!  If you haven’t consumed your fill at Collabor88 this month you’ve literally got HOURS to get in and make it happen folks. Collabor88 will be shutting down and resetting soon and obviously the prices are still AWESOME and the goods are still top notch. It’s a great time to pop by, no lag no avatars dragging other avatars on leashes (probably). I’m wearing clothes and hair from this month’s round – I can’t believe I didn’t see these jeans earlier – they’re adorable. If you need me, I’ll be in my garden, hunting butterflies with an enthusiasm even Spongebob couldn’t match. Jelly fish. That’s what we need next. Jellyfish hunting gear!… Read the rest

The Shadow of Chthulu

I wasn’t going to post this picture as I took it playing with shadows and goofing off last night, however that changed after I read plurk this morning. Morgana Hilra who blogs over at So Hawt SL is having one of those days. One of those days where she feels pressured to blog differently because of X or whatever. Someone is in her ear, or she’s feeling like she needs to change. I think it’s great to grow and change but the idea that someone would pressure someone else into making their blog something that it isn’t is uncool. It’s downright wrong. Our blogs are pure personal expression. Sure, I’m not as good as some. I’m not as polished or as editiorial. I’m not this or that or the other thing. But I’m as Gidgey a they come and that’s my brand and that’s ME. So Morgie my girl, your blog is very lovely. Do your thing. Any changes you make need to be for YOU. As for me, I’m blogging the same dress twice in a row but different colors and I’m pretending I’m Chthulu.… Read the rest

I Mean This Pose Ironically

If you are an old enough avatar you know that there are a handful of poses that at one time were plastered all over every vendor ad on the grid. They’re universally regarded as not only stale but sort of terrible. Personally, I tend to only use my own poses (with a couple of notable exceptions) so imagine my surprise when scrolling through my pose stand filled with Gidgey made poses and I ran into this nearly perfect knock off of one of the DREAD poses. God, I made it so long ago, I probably didn’t realize I was channeling it. Accept it with the irony with which it was intended, please. Blueberry did the shocking thing and did a MAIN STORE RELEASE (more of ya’ll ought to do this) and it’s a gorgeous evening gown this time. If you pick up the fatpack you can get exclusive colors such as this transparent version. Luckily she offers a pany option so you don’t have to see my goodies. I know you want to see them though. Ya pervs. It does give a bit of a nip view – so if nuding out your nips is your thing, you’ll want to do that.… Read the rest
