Alas, Alack and Welladay

I am not really feeling that woe is me at the moment, but this pose in ant’s broken chair at May’s Collabor88 just seems to embody the melodramatic despair of some poor benighted Shakespearean unfortunate. I used the Animare HUD to adjust the pose just a bit so the head and arm rest on the floor.    I combined the Baiastice top and Nylon Outfitters skirt from this month’s Collabor88 for a new look.
  I added the socks and shoes from fri.day that are also at this month’s Collabor88.
  The hair is from Truth for Uber. I left off the jeweled ornament that comes with it and wore the bangs instead.
  The head is Lelutka’s Karin with Glam Affair’s Karin skin face and lipstick and eye shadow from the Lotte applier. One way to add variety to your look, is to combine appliers for something new. The earrings are from Krystal, a go-to place for elegant jewelry. Store info at Blogging Second Life

All Meshed Up

  Mesh dress, shoes, body, hands, feet, jewelry, hair and face. Yes, I am all meshed up. The dress is from Milk Motion for this month’s Collabor88. It comes in several pastel colors – fitting with this month’s theme. I love how asymmetry in the neckline echoes that of the skirt. I also adore the belt, enough that I wish it were sold separately to war with other items. I have one quibble, but it is rooted in Second Life limitations, not in poor construction. This dress has shoulder pads, as you can see. That gives it a great architectural look. Sadly, every long hair I tried to wear  intersected with it. I normally prefer the shorter hair and updos anyway, because I love jewelry and want to see it. But, I also like having the option of long hair and that is a little difficult with these shoulders. Of course, one of those free-flowing manes would work. The asymmetrical skirt rides pretty high on the left leg, so I though I should probably wear some stockings and opted for these two tone stockings from Flair.  … Read the restSnapshot_002

It‘s Memories That I‘m Stealing

It’s such a sad old feeling
the fields are soft and green
it’s memories that I’m stealing
but you’re innocent when you dream
when you dream
you’re innocent when you dream Tom Waits   Penumbra Spring Summer Fashion Week wraps up today, though the shops will remain open for the month. Today I am wearing a top and skirt by Glitter called Lauren. It comes with a HUD that allows you to pick six texture options for the top and the skirt. I went for the solid black top and the black skirt with a pinstripe inset. The top is very short and just barely covers the nipples, leaving the underside of the breasts bare. That’s not my preference, so I added a bodysuit from Sn@tch, using their applier for the Slink Physique so I did not have to worry about the Glitter top fitting over the Sn@tch top. Besides, I think the teal and black lace adds a nice touch.    I was feeling melancholy and stopped by Serene Sanctuary to enjoy the peaceful surroundings.… Read the restGlitter Top and Skirt, Sn@tch shirt, Glamistry Shoes, Lelutka and Slink Mesh Body/Head and Glam Affair skin

Hello October!

It is the1st day of October!  Yet with 105 degree weather in California, you would think it was mid-Summer, the weather has been absolutely a scorcher.  It’s a good thing I can have my Autumn weather in SecondLife or I might go crazy.   With a new month brings a new round of events and as usual there are some amazing finds! The Men’s Dept. will open on October 5th for this new collection.  The tattoo I am wearing can be purchased during the event, it is by Vestigium, high detailed and very life like. I paired it up with my purchases from faMESHed which opened its doors to the public today and it is full of mesh greatness yet again.  I picked up these great jeans from Sleepy Eddy, with great deep pockets and slight lift to the cuff, I won’t be taking these off any time soon. My hair is another great item from faMESHed from Alice Project called Aiden.  I have been hoping for mesh hair from Alice Project for awhile now.  Every time I go to faMESHed I see the great styles and pout because there are none for us guys, well no more pouting, that’s all changed!  … Read the rest

When The Wife’s Away

Mrs. Raynier and I have had a very busy schedule the past 2 weeks.  The kind of weeks that make you forget which day of the week it is and miss each other like crazy.  Making time to spend together is paramount and to make that more possible, I tend to things while Gabriella is busy so that when she returns I am finished with anything that might take me away from spending time with her. Today was one of those days, where the laundry had piled up so high I had to name it Mount Stinky!  While ma cherie amour Gabriella was off running errands, I decided to tackle Mount Stinky and get our house tidied up. Chores are not fun, but a necessity that when you let them go, become even more annoying.  I tend to be the type who procrastinates the chores I dislike most and leave those for last.  After washing all the stinky clothes, the next step was ironing.  I have ironed my clothing since it was safe to do so at a very young age.  I went through a phase were I even ironed my socks.  … Read the rest

i guess i am on a pencil skirt kick lately.. ..not that there’s anything wrong with that, of course. the one i’m wearing here that i picked up @ collabor88 from aura is, like, *right* up my alley. the skirt itself is very feminine && totes shows off the curves, with a frilly hem and a flared bottom. but the skull is the main reason why i bought it — it makes this skirt an awesome contrasting combo of punk’d out girlishness that i really, really like. plus it’s mesh, which means it moves so wonderfully when i walk or pose. unffff ❤❤ i like combining contrasts this way.. cute with creepy, flirty with grungy, dark with light. the pretty skirt with the big grinnin’ skull, a lovely cropped sweater (also out at collabor88 from the sea hole) that is delicate && beautifully colorful, with extra tattoos and piercings and fingerless gloves. a look like this is so *vixxie*.. it’s definitely dressed up but the full-body ink, the piercings && the skull still have me in there somewhere.… Read the rest12.28.2011
