Jumping Into the Unknown

So many times, starting something new feels like you’re jumping off a cliff into the unknown. This is an unusual post for me, but it’s just how I’ve been feeling today.  I really love this Surf Van that’s new for Fashiowl at Pose Fair, though, and this pose that it came with is perfect for this photo.  I’m not going to do credits for my avatar this time because you really can’t see me, even in the high resolution version, which you can click through to see on Flickr!

Wizard of the Aurora

I didn’t intend to do a fantasy post today since I just did one yesterday and with Fantasy Faire opening next week, there will be a lot more of that coming up, but then I saw this gacha set from ISON in the round of TAG! Gacha that opened last night.  Though the rares are a dress and a woman’s necklace, the commons are this incredible fortune teller’s tent set, and I knew I had to play and blog it.  I added Ohmai’s music box from the current round of Create Your Own Tarot as a little accent piece on the table underneath the blankets. I’m wearing a mixture of things from a few different events.  My hair, headpiece, and armor are from the current round of We <3 Roleplay, the boots are FATEstep’s color-changing version* of the boots I blogged two days ago, and the cape is from Create Your Own Tarot.  Full credits are below!

Meet Me at the Rest Stop

Hey allll!  A little LoTD and a proppy type post today#!  The Seasons Story is still going on and you can still buy oodles of great things.   One of the gachas there is this gorgeous Strawberry/Rest Stop stuffies from iBi 8f8!   There are various items to win including bench, rest stop, shade and various berry crates/boxes!  The bench and shade both come with a variety of single and couples poses too!  To top off the look (and because they are cute) I also used the lamps from Cubic Cherry. For my actual look I went cute, but a little bit deadly.   My stunning dress is also from Seasons Story, this time from Enfant Terrible a fairly simple dress but also comes with the chest addon piece which is highly detailed and intricate!  Making 2 looks in one!   The gorgeous hair is also from the event, and I love love love it! I love hair flowers, so this one was a winner, pairing that with the Skinnery skin you can find there I felt all seasoned out! The shoes are from a sub branch store from Ivy Graves called NOIR and can be found at the new round of Kawaii Project, it’s all gone a bit Kawaii Steampunk!  … Read the restMeet Me at the Rest Stop

Faireland Memories (Fantasy Faire Blog Challenge)

This year’s Fantasy Faire begins next week, and I’m proud to be one of the official bloggers for it!  One of the things that they have for us to do is a series of blog challenges to get our creative juices flowing.  To get ready for the Faire, I’m doing the first one today – it’s called “I Remember”.  They’ve asked us to think about the past Fantasy Faires and share our favorite stories, memories, transformations, and moments.  Having spent weeks of time in the Fairelands over the years that the Fantasy Faire has been held, I have far too many memories to share, but I do have a few favorites. I’ll never forget the shotgun wedding (literally) of Alia Baroque and Clover Denzo.  That whole situation never fails to make me laugh when I think about it.  I’ll never forget the first time I saw Elicio Ember’s incredible plants.  I’ll never forget all of the laughs that the Fantasy Faire team had on our constant 24/7 Skype calls as Faire time neared during the years I was on the organizing team. … Read the restFaireland Memories

O Captain

For “The End” (which opens tomorrow), FATEplay has released this awesome clothing set – I’m wearing the jacket, pants, belt, and boots from the Max “Alt” set*.  As usual, the quality is exceptional and the pieces fit together extremely well.  I had way too much fun styling the outfit, and ended up with what looks and feels to me like a steampunk airship pirate captain.  The outfit also includes a shirt, but for this look I chose to go with just the jacket.  There is also a full version of the boots that includes texture changing options out from FATEstep at the same event, so you can match the boots to whatever you’re wearing.  The styling of this outfit includes amazing hair from Exile that is at the current round of Collabor88 and an eye patch from Body Factory that is a gift from them at The 100 Block.  The pose is a new one that is at Pose Fair now from Poseology. For the first time in a long time, mainstream press has been publishing positive/neutral stories about Second Life lately, focused around the Remnants of Earth RP sim. … Read the restO Captain

God of the Stadium (Digits Challenge)

Frequently, Strawberry Singh posts a Monday Meme/Challenge for other bloggers to participate in.  For the last couple of years, she has posted one asking people certain stats about their avatar.  This year, mesh bodies have come into much greater use on the Grid, so peoples’ numbers are quite different.  I myself just switched to a mesh body a few weeks ago, so I’m still tweaking, but I thought I’d still take part.  Strawberry asked a few questions related to our shapes, as well as what some of our sliders are. 1. Do you currently own a mesh body? If so, do you wear it all the time or just once in a while? If not, skip to the fourth question.
I do – The Mesh Project’s beta male body.  These days, I wear it about 95% of the time – I really only change out of it if I want to wear something that absolutely won’t fit it (short shorts are the worst culprit because of the body’s massive thighs).  I’m still getting used to the body, but I’m enjoying it quite a bit so far.… Read the restGod of the Stadium

Enter: The Messenger

Putting together fantasy avatars is something that I really love to do, so when I saw Fujin’s WindBag and Raijin’s Drums from [CX] at the Xiasumi School Festival, I knew that I had to do an avatar that incorported both of them.  Then, I saw the skirt of the Lysistrata Fantasy Costume from GizzA at The Chapter Four, and even though it was made to fit female avatars, I knew that I had to make it work for this one.  Surprisingly, the large size fit me without any changes! I call this avatar “The Messenger” because he looks to me like a messenger who delivers news of war.  With his thunderous drums and sharp gauntlets, he can certainly get his message across.  As usual, click the photo above to see the full-size version on Flickr.

The Artist

The Sakura Round of the Xiasumi School Festival opened on April 3rd with all kinds of goodies.  This photo highlights items from one of the gachas available from the festival, the Artist’s Studio Gacha from Vive Atelier by Vive Nine.  The gacha is L$50 per play and has three rares (the skybox, the artist’s apron, and the double canvas rack) and 13 commons.  There are so many great things available at the Festival.  Be sure to stop by before it closes on April 21st!

In The Arena

The Arena is a new event featuring RP gear for men on the Fantasy Gacha Carnival sim.  Its first round opened yesterday, and really has some great items.  I was excited for it because I love fantasy and RP gear.  This armor set that I’m wearing in the photo above is the Champion Set by PFC, available at The Arena.  It comes with a HUD that lets you change the color of the metal, the sash, the cloth, and the leather to a variety of different colors.  All of it is unrigged mesh so that you can fit it to your shape as well, which is great.  The hair I’m wearing is also at the Arena – it’s the Hunter hair from Damselfly.  I think having the very nicely-styled hair along with a gladiator’s armor like this is a really interesting juxtaposition for an avatar. The photo itself was taken at the entrance to The Arena’s shopping area.  Make sure to visit before the event closes!

Happy Easter!

When I saw this outfit at Menswear Fashion Week, I knew that I had found my Easter outfit for this year.  It’s just so cute!  Unfortunately, the shorts don’t fit the legs of The Mesh Project’s male body at all, so I’m back to the standard avatar for today!  I’m also wearing my favorite boots on the Grid, the Anthony boots by FATEstep*.  To my right is a gorgeous new seating area that Sway’s has out for Uber called the Edna Arbour*.  The cushions color change, and there’s a huge variety of poses inside the seating area itself.  To my left is an adorable statue that Ohmai put out at Creation.JP, as well as two of the goldfish that were created to fit in it.  This little corner of my sim is a place that I love, and these two things were just what I needed to make it perfect for spring.

Color Explosion

Yesterday, Ozimals launched their Holi Hunt.  Three of the prizes from it are shown in the image above: the featured item is the Phalgun Purnima body paint from Fallen Gods, but the Splattered Classix Nouveaux shoes from Schadenfruede and Lambie Pie – Lalu from ~silentsparrow~ also are amazing.  As usual, click the photo to see the high resolution version on Flickr. Now, the body paint is NOT fullbright like you might think after looking at the above image – I did some Windlight tweaks to make it appear that the paint is glow-in-the-dark.  Below after the credits, I have a photo of the same settings and same outfit with a more normal Windlight so you can see how it normally looks.  Either way, the body paint looks amazing, as do the shoes and the lamb companion. Also featured in the image is a swimsuit from VITAMEN that is currently exclusively available at Menswear Fashion Week.  Vitamen Hax has been out of world for a while, so I was glad to see this new pattern available. … Read the restColor Explosion (low res)

I hope you’re having a great week!  This post features more items from this year’s Menswear Fashion Week that is going on right NOW!  With about a sim and a half of stores, there is so much great stuff to browse, try on, and buy, including some Relay For Life donation items and other special deals.  Click on the photo above to see the full resolution version on Flickr! The star of this outfit is the Adrien linen shirt and Armand linen pants from Zibska, both at MWFW.  The shirt is a special deal at the event – L$100 for the shirt and a HUD that can change the shirt and cuffs/collar to 8 different colors!  My necklace is a Relay For Life donation item by United Colors.  The ribbon pin on my shirt is a Relay For Life donation item at MWFW from SWaGGa and also comes with an HIV/AIDS awareness pin.  The last of the MWFW items I’m wearing is the sunglasses, which are new at the event from [ZOOM].  In addition to those items, I’m wearing the Motus Chronometer from VALE KOER and the Promise Ring in gold from The Forge.… Read the restWet Linen

Spring Season Challenge

Many Mondays, Strawberry Singh posts a blog challenge or meme, and since I’m a couple of years late to the party, I thought I’d go back and join in on some of the ones I’ve missed.  This one from about a year ago is the Spring Season challenge.  The photo above called “The Birth of Spring” is actually one that I posted about a week ago on Flickr, but I think it’s absolutely perfect for this.  As part of this blog challenge, Berry posted three questions to answer in addition to taking the photograph.
  1. What is the spring season like where you live?
    This Spring was really non-existent.  I live in the north-western part of Texas in the United States, and our February was brutal (for us) – we had inches of ice on the road at times along with snow.  There were times that basically the whole city I live in shut down!  Then we transitioned straight to our normal May weather – mid-high 80 degree afternoon temperatures and very, very sunny.

Long Walks on the Beach

Menswear Fashion Week opened today, and I knew I was in trouble when I saw that the theme was Bali.  Half of my land stays as a huge beach the whole year, so I knew that I would see so many things there that I just had to have.  This outfit shows you a few of them. First, the Barong sarong by Fallen Gods Inc and Faida in the “exotic purple” color is a Relay For Life donation item, so I knew I had to have it immediately.  The recent partnership between Fallen Gods and Faida has been amazing to see.  Tag’s “No Diggity” leather sandals are also a Relay For Life donation item , and come in both an unrigged version and a version that is rigged for Slink feet.  The Leather Cross Bracelet from V-Spot is also a Relay For Life donation item, and I think it looks fantastic.  The Shirtless Tshirt from INVICTUS on my shoulder adds a nice accent to the beach feel of the outfit.  The Ellie necklace from Velvet Elvis is so incredibly detailed, especially for being made of sculpties. … Read the restA Long Walk on the Beach

Wine and Denim

Hi there!  After having this domain name for about 10 months and meaning to start up a blog time and time again, I’ve finally decided to take the plunge and do it after some prodding from a few friends.  If you’d like to read a little bit more about me, my time in SL, and where I’m coming from, please feel free to read through the “About Me” tab to learn more about my journey. Today, I’m blogging a simple outfit that highlights a few things I really like right now.  The shirt is from Scars and is at Fashion For Life, which is open now, as a donation item to raise money for Relay For Life.  This year’s Fashion For Life was the first time I heard of Scars, but I’ll certainly be visiting their main store.  The jeans are from Lenox, and were at an event last November.  Finally, the boots are from FATEstep, which just recently launched.  The Anthony boots* were something that I had been looking for for a very long time, but hadn’t been able to find. … Read the restWine and Denim
