My Slink Obsession Brings Us Full Circle

I’m not obsessed
So don’t forget it
It’s just a silly phase I’m going through I must confess that clothing appliers amuse me. After all, when I began back in 2007, most clothing was made of textures applied on the avatar’s system layer. Details like buttons and collars and cuffs were usually drawn on and even photo sourced clothing had an air of unreality to it. Flexis and sculpts added depth and form, but they did not add verisimilitude. And then came mesh and there was a revolution in fashion where most of the design effort was focused on the forms, the shape, the buttons, collars and other details and the fabrics were added later. Because the barriers to entry for mesh creation are higher in terms of skills and software, several designers retreated and retired. Now that mesh bodies have replaced the system body for thousands of us, we are back to applying textures, this time on the mesh body. It does seem like we have come full circle – though with a distinct revolution in quality.… Read the rest150703_004

That octopus is spittin at Lil Red!

IDK why I named it that. It made me laugh, okay? And I needed a laugh after the drama, DRAMA I SAY…the drama of trying to get these shots. And ya know what? I tried on 2 different occasions, 3 different viewers and in the end I thought I HAD THEM. The pics would have been much sharper as per usual but I didn't realize that Singularity wouldn't take pics at the size I was trying for and instead went back to default. It's quite the downer, let me tell you what. But rather than ask the tiny ones yet again to pose it up for me, I just decided to do the best I can. There's so much more to blog and I fell so far behind with my laptop not working. SO, SUMMERFEST RIGHT. Have you been? I dunno if I've mentioned this (I HAVE) but it's one of my favs. Only happens once a year, guys! And there is so much cute stuff to snap up. I have been using past Summerfest stuff as well which really just goes to show you how awesome it all is   ​​ Glam Affair – Luna skin – Jamaica Tone – 07

BYRNE is a new to me clothing line by ByrneDarkly Cazalet. Some of you may be familiar with her because of her involvement in Kamera Klub, the monthly photographic event that has produced events like the BOSCH IN HELL recreation of The Garden of Earthly Delights or from the Tart Gallery. She is an occasional denizen of The Velvet where I DJ, so when I saw the store name BYRNE and inspected to see who was the greater, I was pleased and kind of amazed she found time for even more creative endeavors. She does not have a huge selection of clothing yet, but I liked what I found. She likes colors and prints and is a bold designer. This is actually one of her more subdued prints. The dress is a lovely naturalistic pink and green that makes you think of a lovely young forest with a splash of roses on the front. When you purchase the dress you get four dresses – one with pink roses, one with green roses, both with regular and materials finishes. I wore the Materials version which reacts so beautifully to light. … Read the rest150627_001

La Reina

I went shopping at Uber! It’s yet another great edition this month. How about this lovely Raine hair from Wasabi Pills? I have been in it for 3 days now, that’s pretty amazing. I usually change hair like 3 times a day… or more! My Spring Garden necklace is from Yummy and there is also a gorgeous Spring Garden ring as a separate, also available at Uber. The dress is from Glam Affair, called Swen. I used to have some issues with Glam’s clothing because the inside was transparent and that made it hard to wear if not standing still, but their newest releases have (at least part) of the inside textured as well, so that’s awesome! My Nadya sandals are  from Fri.day and available at this month’s Collabor88, which is still ongoing for a couple of more days! And then some special attention for Mudskin‘s Reina applier for the LeLutka heads. Isn’t it pretty??? Mudskin is one of those brands I love, but never actually got to buy skins from because for some reason, they look lovely on others, but never on me!… Read the rest

Watermelon, Arcade June 2015 Contest

       There are only a few more days left in June 2015 Arcade. Have you got all of your wishlist? I still have seven commons that I can't seem to find on my wishlist and I really want two rares that I might just spend some money for if I can find them for a reasonable price. I always agonize over an Arcade Photography Contest Entry- so much so that sometimes I don't even submit one, rofl. I spent a lot of time setting the above picture up and I think its very cute. I suppose it will do for my entry this time, lol. You can't help but make something cute with the adorable items at this round of Arcade! 
      My fashion is actually all from Arcade except for my romper. My hair, necklace, skin, rare lipgloss, and shoes can all be found at Arcade June. My fitmesh romper can be found at collabor88 June and its wonderful. I need to go get a bunch of more textures. I love this watermelon one though! So cute and it goes so well with all the Arcade watermelon items, mishmish and 8f8.… Read the rest

Pinky and the Brain

Are you pondering what I am pondering? No?, well alright fine. Yes I am showing my age by referencing a cartoon from the early 90's. If you are old enough to know the show, and The Animaniacs, where it all started then you know the awesomeness that was Pinky. I let my partner in crime wear pink today because I am just that kind of gal.

We hit up a dock for our photos because I figured a laboratory might be a little to on the nose. We are of course wearing matching dresses in different colors. I am mint-tastic while Bunny is Pink-erific. Once you read the credits you will be able to tell we both went took a trip to Kustom9. Oh look there they are!

Summer Surf

Summer is officially here which means it is time to hit the beach. What better way to spend a day at the beach than hitting the waves with your board?

First things first and you have to make sure there are some waves to be had. It would be difficult to surf without waves. After spying a few big ones I thought is was time to hit the water.

I won't admit to how many tries it took me to get up, or to how many times I wiped out before finally getting my feet beneath me. Those pros on television make it look so much easier than it actually is. Oh well you know what they say, practice makes perfect so I will be out there again and again until I am less clumsy on my board.

Welcome to Summerfest 2015!

Summerfest is one of my favorite events. It's only once a year, but every year for the past 3 years I've looked forward to it and spent way too much at it lol. I love the feel of it, the beachyness, everything that people think to make for it. From the "ofc that's there" to the "omg I've never seen that I need it!" stuff. The bikinis to the floaties, I want it alllll and I have such fun decorating the sim to reflect just how much I love warm weather and beach activities. It's just fun, you can make a simple picture seem so entertaining with all the things out there to do in the summertime. And Summerfest participants deliver, lemme tell ya what. I went nuts looking at EVERYTHING and I've already gone 4x to make sure there's nothing left behind that I still want. I might go again though just in caseeeee. For now, with all the laptop problems and second guessing pics…I'm finally rambling on about one of the most awesome events IMO on the grid.… Read the restWtS2015
