I do what I do

  You know how sometimes you have this whole scene in your head and you try so hard to make it happen? So this is what happened, okay. I pictured this at Virtual Decay, this one leaning pose I made some time ago…against the bike, chillin lookin like a badass right? So, I go to Virtual Decay and there's no more temp rezzing. *SADTIMES, PEOPLE* I was so like, what do I do where do I go LOL. So I asked for other sort of dark, seedy urban places to try and got this one. Now, it wasn't where I was trying to take the pic but when I saw this brothel sign I had the weirdest urge to take the pic in front of it. Call me quirky. So, I did, changed up the pose and there you have it. I still think V is a badass though. I mean honestly, not that many people have such a good core that they can lean on a bike with no feet on the floor and not crack their skull. This is a pop muh collar moment, fo sho. ​ -Glam Affair – Artemis – Summer Girl – Jamaica

Fruit Not Lollipops!


Have you ever tried to reason with a toddler? It never ends well, someone always ends up in tears and it is usually the adult. This is what happened recently when I tried to have a healthy treat time with my adorably stubborn niece Livy. You see I went through all the work of making, fine buying, a whole bunch of yummy fruity treats for us to have in a little backyard afternoon camp out. Sorry you won't catch me actually sleeping under the stars unless you could a skylight. However a certain small someone had other ideas, specifically some lollipops. I still am baffled about where she pulled those from. I mean here I spent good money on a cute watermelon grill and tons of fruit kebabs. I thought she would love eating them. She obviously likes to eat fruit flavored things on sticks, just not actual fruit.

I took a little breather to try and recoup and not lose my marbles. I finally thought up a compromise that did the trick. She got to eat one lollipop, but only after she ate some fruit, either on a skewer or in a popsicle form.… Read the restTrying to reason

Hair Fair Designers — Mirja Mills

I discovered EMO-tions in April 2010 thanks to a blog post by Sugar Planer. I became a fan of her romantic and wild styles. There is something so undisciplined about Mirja Mills hair. It wants to move and be free. Even with the arrival of mesh, her hair has the feeling of movement and freedom. Mirja Mills Self Portrait – 2014 EMO-tions Stephanie It’s Only Fashion: What’s the craziest thing you ever did in Second Life? Most exciting? Silliest? Is there a story you can share that captures your Second Life experience? Mirja Mills: Craziest , most exciting and silliest in all was the first year .. when I was sooo addicted that logging out meant pain The best feeling was to realize that there were people who liked what I create. And awesome always was and is to make wonderful friends in a virtual world. EMO-tions Stephanie IOF: What drew you to designing hair? When did you start?

Blue Pier-iod


Why yes I did make a cheesy reference to Picasso's period of paintings. What can I say wearing that much blue and being on pier just made it too easy. I however am no where near as talented as the famed painter. Thought it would be fun to change things up and wear a more "non-traditional" hair color for a change.

I liked how the hair sort of matches the fading colors of the shirt and shorts I am wearing. You could almost think I planned it that way. It's true I did, but that is part of the fun of playing dress up. I will leave you with the credits now because my coffee hasn't quite kicked in so my brain cells aren't exactly fired up. Maybe I just need a coffee IV for mornings.

Poolside Blogger and Other Misunderstandings

My friends Whimsy and Sasy collaborate each round of My Attic for something wonderful. They make photoboxes for bloggers, or great items with lovely poses and props for everyone. When they passed me their item for this round of My Attic, my poor eyes that are adjusting to contacts (monovision, what fresh hell is this?) read “Poolside Blogger and Friends” in the description as this was something for bloggers, and their friends. “Oh nice, another photobox for bloggers YAY” my brain said. It’s not. It’s a big ass pool. Now, because everything at My Attic is 95L you can pick up this big ass pool, that has splashable water (my eyes can’t read well yet I have to sort that out later), pillows with poses and beach towels also just LOADED up with poses. OK WOW this is the best 95L priced item in a long time. I’ve decided now that I have a pool, that I’m going to spend my day outside in this teeny bikini from House of Hucci.… Read the rest

Hair Fair Designers — Emerrem and Bertha Weiss

  Emerrem and Berthaweiss are two sisters whose bonds in their real life just make their Second Live richer. Their store, .EMBW. was new to me at this year’s Hair Fair and I was excited to see their creations, particularly since I am always complaining there is not enough short hair.

EMBW Psi It’s Only Fashion: What’s the craziest thing you ever did in Second Life? Most exciting? Silliest? Is there a story you can share that captures your Second Life experience? Emerrem and Bertha Weiss: WE LOVE DOING SILLY THINGS! We also photograph every silly moment. Like one time I wanted to see the creator of the little fairies, I tried to select “Edit” but my mouse went wrong to “Sit here,” the next moment I sit on that little fairy’s head with a silly sitting pose, and she carried me up and up and then stuck into the wall. xD EMBW Erulasse includes a hud to change the band on the braid.

Syzygy


Definition- Syzygy: A kind of unity, an alignment of three celestial bodies. 

     NanTra created a really amazing new pose set, Syzygy, that is at the current round of Genre. This pose set was created with models in mind and the animations move smoothly when transitioning between the 8 poses and their mirrors that are included in this set. It would be really cool to see this set on the runway.


     I have been continuing to enjoy all the sparkly items at collabor 88. I can't believe all the gorgeous textures. I am so impressed! I am loving this Under the Sea theme.

Retro?

I've taken it upon myself to sort of revive my SL experience by delving into a new activity or two. I've gone to sims and events I'd not normally go to, met some very unique and interesting people and learned about new things. While there is usually a down side to putting yourself out there, the rewards thus far seem to very much outweigh the downers. So far, so good. In keeping with trying new things, I had been tinkering with my avi's look a bit. I wanted to go more sexy, perhaps a bit senual and elegant. At the moment, I think I regressed to "cute" but I couldn't help it. I just started putting things on until I was feeling okay and off I went. A man I ran into asked if I was going retro lol. It didn't occur to me to think of it like that but hey…maybe? All I know was I was good with the look, and a woman complimented me so you know that's a pretty decent stamp of approval Happy Saturday, everyone! ♥ Glam Affair – Luna skin – Jamaica Tone – 08

Hair Fair Designers — Annette Voight

I found Decoy first through my love of shoes seven years ago – not just seven years ago, but seven years ago this month. That means Annette Voight has been around creating through all the changes in design technology, learning new skills and adapting to the trends and revolutions of Second Life with élan. She started making hair just five years ago, but from the outset, her textures were great (redheads have to be picky) and her style casual, but always elegant. Decoy Jen It’s Only Fashion: What’s the craziest thing you ever did in Second Life? Most exciting? Silliest? Is there a story you can share that captures your Second Life experience? Annette Voight: The most exciting experience for me was exploring Numbakulla, this awesome puzzle adventure sim that I stumbled upon around 2007/2008 when I was still pretty new to SL. I was bored of only hanging out at typical places like beaches and clubs, so this was one of the best hidden treasures for me.… Read the restFound

Hair Fair Designers — Neveah Niu


It’s Only Fashion: What’s the craziest thing you ever did in Second Life? Most exciting? Silliest? Is there a story you can share that captures your Second Life experience? Never Niu: OMG, there have been so many silly, exciting and strange moments that have happen to me in second life, I am not sure where to begin with that one. However, I think the most exciting and fun thing I have done is role-play on the Kingdom Of Sand sims. I find it so interesting to see individual’s rp in the heat of moment and just go wherever their imagination takes them. Second Life is such a big place with so many individuals who have big imaginations I love being a part of that. Iconic Aria IOF: What drew you to designing hair? When did you start and what were some of the most significant changes for you? NN: Well, I am artist by nature. I draw, paint, game and sculpt for enjoyment. I have a degree in design and development where I am fortunate to use my education in both rl and in sl.… Read the restVACATION_TIME

"Ravenclaw," said The Sorting Hat

   
     I have taken a few different quizzes and I always get sorted into house Ravenclaw, described as able to learn quickly, very wise, original, creative, and competitive. I must admit The Sorting Hat seems to know what it is about. You can take this quiz and find out which house you would be in  and then visit The Wizarding Faire 2015 and buy your appropriate house color in FATEplay's new fantasy outfit Wright. I am wearing Eagle in blue and silver. The outfit comes in sizes for men, women, and children.  Cae is also at the faire with three wizard inspired necklaces. I am wearing Seeker's Quest. I took my pictures at the Wizarding Faire. It is a recreation of Hogwarts and it is really amazing. You should visit and check out the build. I enjoyed exploring the castle.



     Each FATEplay outfit comes with a wearable, rid-able broom or you can also buy the broom seperately. The coolest thing happens when you fly- your avatar AND cape animate.… Read the rest

Happy Eid!

Eid al-Fitr has arrived and it’s been a wonderfully spiritual month of Ramadan for me. Ramadan is one of my most favorite months of the year. It’s a time my family really comes together. We wake up before sunrise and eat together then open our fasts together after sunset. We read the Quran together, we pray […] The post Happy Eid! by Strawberry Singh appeared first on StrawberrySingh.com.

Hair Fair Designers — Syndel Daviau & River Eternal

Asset Rocket Syndel Daviau and River Eternal are the design partnership behind the Asset hair salon. River Eternal described their relationship like this. “The shop is ours, but she’s the brain, I’m mostly the hands” When the brain and hands work together, some amazing things can be produced. Sandel Daviau completed the interview. It’s Only Fashion: What’s the craziest thing you ever did in Second Life? Most exciting? Silliest? Is there a story you can share that captures your Second Life experience? Sandel Daviau: The craziest, most exciting and probably silliest thing altogether that I’ve been doing in SL since my very arrival is to own roleplay sims. So far they have been about a dozen and I never can stop myself from thinking about the next one. It’s like an addiction to bring amazing playgrounds to the grid, much like making books come alive so people can play in them. I always think about stopping: “this will be my last sim!”, but when I see it I’ve already commissioned a new one.… Read the restAsset Rocket_001

Hair Fair Designers — Queue Marlowe

Analog Dog Psylocibin at Hair Fair 2015 demonstrates Marlowe’s skill at  outwitting alpha glitches. 
Who has not gotten lost in the forests of hair at Analog Dog. From my first visit, I have found the quantity and diversity of hair overwhelming. This comes from a long history of creating hair and from the skill to create hair that stands up to the test of time, changing fads and changing technology. Any hair love will be able to recognize Analog Dog hair in an instant. Creator Queue Marlowe’s style is easily recognized in large part because her hair moves. Flexi has gone out of fashion in large part because it cannot be rigged and because people struggle with alpha glitches. Marlowe cannot avoid the rules of alpha layers, but she can stretch those rules and she can outwit them – as anyone who has tried on her hair can see. Analog Dog hair is unique, long may it wave…and bounce. Analog Dog Psylocibin with additional curls add on.… Read the restAnalog Dog Psylocibin_001
