The Healing Power of Sprites

  We can imbue talismans with tremendous power through the powers of faith and suggestion. If you believe something will work for you; it often will. Monica Outlander of MiaMai has created in real life and now in Second Life®, a collection of talismanic sprites that  can bring health and happiness to those who invest the power of belief in them. If your worldview is more prosaic and devoid of supernatural beliefs, they can also be enjoyed for their quirky adorability and the come with a magnificent free shelf that can be used to display these sprites, but I think I will also rez a few more of these shelves for otters things as well. There’s also a home protection sprite hanging on a branch that is equally adorable. The gorgeous house is the Hudson Townhouse from Scarlet Creative and can be found at Collabor88 this month.

  I put together a new top from Glam Affair with the Cael shorts from Baiastice. Both the top, the shorts and the Baistice necklace can be found at Uber.… Read the rest150225_003

Hi I’m Here To Do Your Hair

Remarkable Oblivion has released some gear that’s perfect for those of you still seeking to traverse the grid in a more dystopian setting. Personally, in a dystopia I feel that being a stylist would be a really valued role – after all – who wants to be UGLY under their gear? NO ONE, that’s who! I can take up to two customers at a time depending on what we’re doing today. Toxic waste? You’re soaking in it! Just have a seat on the tires. How long can you hold your breath while I work? These great boots and armor are available at THE ARCADE which opens in a few hours. I’m so excited. I still didn’t get the dollhouse I want, but hey I ALREADY OWN A DOLLHOUSE, I will so use it if I can’t get the one i want. Gidge Is Wearing:

High Plains Fairy Drifter

I’ve been playing in ARCADE items today and the VCO Fairy Mesh Heads have caught my fancy. I don’t wear mesh heads regularly but this is pretty cute, and there is a nice selection of them if something you enjoy. I really love that you can choose your eyes, and hairbase via hud, makes it nice to switch up your look or keep it close to your avatar’s look for hair matching etc.  They’re really cute. Such Sweet little faces! I’m also wearing an adorable release from Katat0nik for ARCADE, it’s a cute little spring faux cowgirl look. The details on the hat are adorable. The skirt has a magical property that allows your hand to pass right through it. MAGIC! You can get everything you see at THE ARCADE which is opening in less than 24 hours. DO YOU HAVE YOUR LIST READY? I do…I need that dollhouse people. NEED. NEED I TELL YOU! Featured on Itsonlyfashionblog.com

How Do You Arcade ?

Like Athena bursting from Zeus’ head, I leaped awake today realizing that THE ARCADE is almost here! Do you have a system? Do you make plans? How do you ARCADE? I always start with the Shopping Guide, it really shows me who my must haves are each round and gives me ideas for little gift giving things too, like the post apocalyptic stuff for Codie. And maybe something for some of you – who knows? I admit I spend quite a while narrowing it all down. Some collections I WANT IT ALL. Some, I’m like this “Hey, whatever I get will be AWESOME!” If you haven’t perused the ARCADE SHOPPING GUIDE, well here is the latest edition. What’s your MUST have this round? I love the claw machine. I WON A CHICKFISH! Now, I’m excited. Sometimes I just need a push to remind me what I love about the pixel world. Arcade was that push this time. Thank You CHICKFISH! The ARCADE opens on the 1st of March. Are you ready? Gidge is Wearing:

Important Information About Breakfast

“I think baking cookies is equal to Queen Victoria running an empire. There’s no difference in how seriously you take the job, how serious you approach your whole life.”
~ Martha Stewart
Cookies are a valid breakfast. I decided this morning that only cookies would do, and at the same time I realized there are “breakfast cookies” and “diet cookies” and this really means that cookies are now officially a good for you food, right? I mean, these people who market these products wouldn’t lie to us, correct? For that reason I’m pursuing a cookie filled breakfast. If loving cookies is wrong, I don’t want to be right. However many minutes of aerobics are required to work off this entire tray of cookies, they are worth every minute of it. In fashiony news today, Lelutka has released two new beautiful hair do’s and I’m sporting one of them.  This is a great casual do for cookie filled days.… Read the rest

A Personal PSA — Take More Pictures

      Before I say one word about my outfit, I want to urge you to take more pictures. When you are with your family, arrange yourselves in a huddle and take a picture. When your grandparents are visiting, cozy up and take a picture. When your sister is over for coffee, take a picture. Take more pictures, take them in abundance. Take too many. Take so many you can throw away the bad ones.   I say this because I spent yesterday with a difficulty and heartbreaking task. My friend’s daughter died, her body rejecting the heart she had been given. For whatever reason, that family is not a picture-taking family. In all there were 5 recent pictures of her, all selfies and one good photo taken by someone else. There were no pictures of her with her grandmother, her aunts, her baby brother. This was a close family that spent many weekends and holidays together, and there was not a picture to be had. So I was asked to take those selfies and photoshop them into old photos with her grandmother, her aunts and other family members.… Read the rest150221_004

Mirrors of Beauty

I ran the gauntlet yesterday, getting my stamp card completed for ENCHANTMENT. I may actually end up going back and picking up another item and running it again, as there was more I really loved at the event and hey, lovely free gifts are good. But for this morning, I’m having trouble getting moving even with my little dog Spike reminding me we need to get going. He’s a pushy little bastard to be sure.  The gift I chose were the hand mirrors from Kalopsia, because decor items are an addiction. These are just lovely. I promptly lost one someplace on my land while placing it – you actually get THREE with your stamp card. But I’ve got two sitting out for those moments when I just gave upon myself in greater detail than my bureau mirror.

‘Twas Beauty Killed the Beast

This month at ENCHANTMENT it’s all about Beauty and the Beast.  I’m wearing a side swept braid style from DUE that’s really an adorable look, it reminds me of the 10949433 sweet braid styles on Pinterest I can’t actually do in RL to my hair. Enchantment is the Stamp Card event so remember, just one purchase gives you a stamp card, which you can then hop about to the participating merchants, get a stamp by touching the Stamp Card Vendor and once you have THEM ALL you can visit the gift center and pick up a free item from one of the vendors this month. If you buy two items, you get two stamp cards and can get TWO free gifts, and so on. I love a stamp card event, they’re fun and I always end up buying stuff I didn’t mean to as it gets me into stores I haven’t been to before. Oh no, shopping, NOT THAT! You can hop over to Seraphim for the entire ENCHANTMENT GALLERY as well as a peak at the prizes! Gidge is Wearing:

The Sweetest Next New Thing

Hart Larsson of PXL Creations has released some new mesh lips and as you can see from Gidge’s post, they are The Next New Thing. For this post, I have only used raw shots, with absolutely no photoshopping because I want you to see why folks are excited about SweetLips.  Interestingly, the look was seamless in Second Life®. I think the bit of shadow is actually my fault. I accidentally tinted the skin instead of the lips and while I thought I brought the tint back to white on top of the Natural applier, I must not have clicked to completely white, so the skin is just a tiny bit darker than it should be. There is a support page at PXL Creations web site  which if I had looked at first, I would never have made skin red. But I don’t like reading directions. I like to figure it out for myself and it turns out to be easy enough that I figured it out anyway.  As you can see, there are no weird gaps, cracks and alphas from the side. It looks good from all angles. All you need to do to get a good fit is copy your usual shape and adjust the mouth to the measurements in the notecard that comes with the SweetLips package.… Read the rest150220_007

Put Your Sweet Lips a Little Closer

  The new mesh lips from PXL Creations are called SweetLips, which immediately made me think of this song my dad used to sing at barn dances. Put your sweet lips a little closer to the phone
Let’s pretend that we’re together all alone
I’ll tell the man to turn the juke box way down low
And you can tell your friend there with you he’ll have to go Whisper to me tell me do you love me true
Or is he holding you the way I do
Though love is blind make up your mind I’ve got to know
Should I hang up or will you tell him he’ll have to go You can’t say the words I want to hear
While you’re with another man
Do you want me answer yes or no
Darling I will understand Put your sweet lips a little closer to the phone
Let’s pretend that we’re together all alone
I’ll tell the man to turn the juke box way down low
And you can tell your friend there with you he’ll have to go Store info at Blogging Second Life

New Mouth Because Why Not

“The mouth obeys poorly when the heart murmurs.”
~ Voltaire

There have been a few mesh mouths out, and I LIKED the way they looked but any time someone tried one on and said they liked it they also mentioned what editing they’d have to do in PS to “make it look right”.  I don’t mind putting on a filter to give a different look to a pic other than SL lighting but I won’t blur or whatever else to make products “look right”. If you can’t wear it around in SL without it looking nuts, I don’t think it’s a good value.  I don’t have PS so that’s also an issue but hey I COULD get it. I wouldn’t make products look ok with it though, I just have huge issues with that. PXL Creations released a new mesh add on bit called the Sweet Lips mesh mouth. Right out of the box it was close to looking right, and with a small tweak of the resizer and turning off ambient occlusion BAM – it was perfect.… Read the rest

Shooz Nooz: 21 Shoe for February Edition

“A Shoe has so much more to offer than just to walk.”
~ Christian Louboutin We are poised at the threshold of another round of 21Shoe and this round has a lot to offer for different tastes. My first set (above) is from Livalle (formerly L.Warwick). You can pop over and pick both of them up here for one low price. Ingenue has re-imagined her Danja oxfords just for this even with exclusive color/print combos. These are a wardrobe staple. You can grab both patters (which come with HUDS for color changes) HERE.  YS & YS have two pumps that are quite different but both are unique – they both put me in the mind of the sixties.  I’m shopping for dresses for both of these in my mind right now. You can grab them HERE. Pure Poison has two really diverse shoes – a heel and a flat which I always love to see. I am thinking they are something for Saturday DAY and something for Saturday NIGHT. You can hop over HERE to grab them. The House of Rain Dagger Boots are aptly named.… Read the rest

In the Spirit

I am literally in the spirit, the Spirit Charlotta blouse, pants and suspenders from this month’s Collabor88. The blouse comes in multiple versions so it can be worn with or without the suspenders and with other options than the pants. The pants are pleated so they are a bit big around the hips and taper to a cuff that reveals fabric matching the blouse. The suspenders come separately for maximum flexibility. I always like it when separates are truly separate pieces. Scarlet Creative released a lovely townhouse at this month’s Collabor88 and I enjoyed decorating it, mostly with elements from Trompe Loeil, Floorplan. & Consignment, and junk for this month’s Collabor88 as well as some things from Apple Fall and ::db:: that I had in my inventor This Trompe Loeil loveseat is adorable and the poses are fabulous. I only had to do minor adjustments for my arms which must be longer than the avatar used to fit the poses to the object. It also comes with full perm textures which will allow me to personalize it if I wish, though I contented myself with tinting the pillows using the edit window.… Read the rest150218_007

When Builders Let You Make Your Own

I was excited to see that Tegan Serin of floorplan. include a full perm texture with her Arrow Scroll for Collabor88. This allows us to change the appearance of the scroll, replacing the text with our own, for example. This does not let someone make them to resell because the form is not full-perm. She’s not the only one. The loveseat from Trompe Loeil which is also at Collabor88 included the textures for folks who like to customize their own. Here you can see the original scroll with the other items from the Consignment and Floorplan. double date at Collabor88. The original scroll featured Sonnet 18 from Shakespeare, a beautiful poem, but I wanted something shorter. I decided to put up a quote about cats and am going to show you how I did it. So the first thing to do is save the texture to your hard drive because you need to work on this outside of Second Life. I save it as a targa (.tga) because from what I have read, if the object has a targa texture, you are less likely to get the funny alpha glitch that makes your hair look funky.… Read the rest150218_004

Pigalle from Baiastice

“It is better to offer no excuse than a bad one.” ~ George Washington
I had to look up the word Pigalle as I couldn’t place it. According to wikipedia it’s a place in Paris. It’s also a surname. There was a chanteuse named Anne Pigalle. There have been various things like theaters and bands with this name. None of these were what I was thinking of. It’s possible I don’t know this word after all. But, now I do. Gidge is Wearing:

That’s How the Boy Gets the Girl in the Movies

I wore the Vivianne dress from Lassitude & Ennui (at Collabor88) when I DJ’ed at The Velvet’s Valentine’s Day party. It’s such a romantic dress with it’s froth of lace at the hem. One of my favorite songs I played for the party was “That’s How the Boy Gets the Girl in the Movies” by Emily West. I hope you will play the YouTube® visit.  I heard it happens.
It’s never happened to me. I stare by the window,
If he’s there, it’s only just a dream
Just a dream. Birds in the sky will be singing the song.
The sun will be shining when his car pulls up. Oh, I long for the day and the way it should be.
Expected temptations are waiting for me. Cause that’s how the boy gets the girl in the movies.
Kisses that make her the star of the show.
He’ll buy you roses and make you feel pretty.
Hold the umbrella when he walks you home. It’s Hollywood. It’s heaven.
It’s everything perfect above.… Read the rest150214_003

In Which the Blogger Gushes Uncontrollably

I fell in love with the Nayra long skirt released by Baistice’s Sissy Pessoa at February’s Collaboir88. Released in a range of colors, it was released with a matching set of sweaters for the modernist fashion of elevating casual elements by mixing them with formal. pieces. There are several reasons I love this skirt in particular. In fact, let me list them.
  1. The pleating allows it to move without texture stretching.
  2. The texture’s details with the pleats highlights, shadows and doubtless make it come alive.
  3. It falls at the natural waist, which I think is the most flattering choice.
  4. It mixes and matches with simplicity as you can see in this s post as I not only use the accompanying sweater that was released by Baiastice, but also with two other tops from a different store.
Here I have a much more formal look in rouge.   And this is a sweet, charming old-fashioned look.  The accompanying sweater from Baiastice has lovely cutout embellishment on the bodice, adding a soft, feminine detail.… Read the rest15Feb10_007
