This picture is illegal in Russia

Russia recently banned this meme of Putin in makeup that many were using to advocate for gay rights. In recent years, while the LGTBIQ community in the United States have seen some victories while still facing challenges and efforts to roll back their rights, sexual minorities have been experiencing ever-increasing oppression in such disparate places as Uganda and Russia. This is not a coincidence. As the Christianists have lost ground in the United States, they have exported their anti-gay agenda. This week, news came out about concentration camps in Chechnya–think about that. Russia has  passed legislation against gays, Uganda criminalized homosexuality and nearly passed a death penalty for homosexuality though we held off by pressure from Europe and the United States. Scott Lively is currently being sued for crimes against humanity for his role in advocating the repressive Ugandan actions, including advocating the death penalty for gays.… Read the restStop Homofobia meme banned in Russia

Overwhelmed with the New

Gizza released a gorgeous formal gown at The Liaison Collaborative. It comes in rich jewel tones, deeply saturated colors such as this rich ruby red. It has a full, flowering skirt that falls deeply in the back. These skirts are sometimes controversial. Sometimes they are a failure, but when well done, they are beautiful, flashing your legs while still providing the length of formal wear. I kind of think we should name them by how well they work. Hi-lo or waterfall skirts if they work and mullet skirts if they do not. By the way, Slink has updated their hands so they are rigged to the Bento skeleton. Note the very, not just released, but updated. What does that mean for you? It means that to have new Bento hands, you can simply update your old ones without an additional investment. How generous is that? How does it work? You go to the mainstore and click the redelivery terminal and the update will be sent to you. If you bought the multipack, you will get the whole shebang, the dynamic hands, the idle HUD, and a fifteen pose HUD of static poses.… Read the rest“There has always been an elegance to the application of excellence.”

It’s Only Fashion Is Back

Our web site was down. Somehow there was a virus in the database. Is that not the strangest thing? I don’t know if that would affect readers or not, but thankfully it’s been fixed. I shot these pictures last week. I was still shocked by the Orwellian phrase “alternate facts” that in a healthy society would completely discredit the people who promote them. But, since people no longer distinguish between fact and opinion, alternate facts seem to be growing. Aldous Huxley, though, had the right idea. “Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored.” I fell in love with this lovely sweater from NYU for FaMESHed. It came with a gorgeous asymmetric skirt, too, but I wanted to show off the gorgeous ribbed waist line of the sweater and it tucked into the skirt. You can see the top and skirt together here. But look at that beautiful ribbing at the bottom…I had to find something to wear that showed it off. The Lesha trousers from Baiastice were perfect.… Read the restFacts do not cease to exist because they are ignored.

The choices that are my own…


My computer has been on sabbatical since December 18th. It took a trip to Cupertino to soak in the warmer weather and pick up a new logic board. Luckily, it returned last night just in time for me to show off this gorgeous dress from ISON before Collabor88 shimmies itself into a new monthly showcase on the 8th. Is this not lovely and it comes in five colors and I posed on that pose stand clicking the HUD through those colors over and over and over and over again trying to decide. It was impossible, they are all wonderful. So, I eenie-meenied my way to this lovely rose shade. I am decisive like that sometimes.


Speaking of choices, I am not one for resolutions or for self-help books. I laugh in their general direction! However, I have decided that there is a self-help book that appeals to me, The Daily Stoic by Ryan Holiday. I am going to try to read it one-day-at-a-time, as intended, though the temptation to read it all at once is strong. It has already made me roll by eyes a couple times, but I have read and appreciated Marcus Aurelius and Epictetus in the past.… Read the restWhere then do I look for good and evil? Not to uncontrollable externals, but within myself to the choices that are my own . .

And now we welcome the new year, full of things that have never been.

Rilke was right to note that the new year would be full of things that have never been. Every new year brings us innovation, discovery and change. In that, every new year brings us something to hope for despite looming dangers. Despite the many losses that have made 2016 a bitter and sorrowful year, I fear we may look back on it with longing as the Grand Panjandrum takes the oath he will break that very day and every day that follows. Tomorrow will follow tomorrow and time goes forward inexorably. All we can do, then, as we teeter on the edge of the abyss, is resist despair, resist defeat and find sanctuary in community, in beauty, and in certain knowledge that the arc of the moral universe may have gotten a kink in it, but it still bends toward justice.


It may be that Second Life® becomes a refuge, a haven of sanity and compassion in a world that has turned vicious and violent. There is a culture of tolerance, open-hearted decency, and cross-cultural respect in Second Life that may be a safe haven for people who find the open embrace of bigotry by our political leaders offensive and intolerable.… Read the restAnd now we welcome the new year. Full of things that have never been. Rainer Marie Rilke

A Mind of Their Own

The damn lights have a mind of their own. I picked them up at Collabor88, the newest release from Maxi Gossamer and they just insist on going everywhere. They’re all in a tangle and I need to untangle them before I can decorate. Of course, if you’re decorating the outside of your house, you need a smoking hot coat like this one from Mutresse. It comes with a color-change HUD that is stuffed with 20 colors that you can use to customize the turtleneck sweater, the zips, the collar, the lapel, the pockets and the jacket body and bodice. Such control gives you exactly what you want. It, too, is at Collabor88.
I believe when I turn my head, the lights jump back into a tangle. Oh well, you can get a good look at my whole outfit, including the applier tights from Izzie’s. I chose the adorable booties from Glamistry. I was able to pick the colors from a HUD to customize it to go with my coat. Exile released this lovely updo at Collabor88. It’s called Class Act and it sure is a class act.… Read the restDon't worry about the smallest size that light can be, it will chase away the darkness

Apply Yourself

This Verushka dress from Liziaah is striking in its details – all very architectural and rigid, but intricate and complex – a baroque form of modernism. It is also unusual in its construction. With the advent of mesh, we have lost the old form of system layers and while we often use appliers for lingerie or layering, there are few people making clothing using appliers and mesh pieces. Liziaah is one of those few. This dress is applied and the dreaded flap for the skirt is added, however, since this is mesh, not prim, it has not of the flaws of past. It conforms to movement, it reacts to the light the same as the applied textures. In the end, it makes a beautiful dress that is form-fitting in ways that mesh cannot achieve.

Verousha is a form-fitting dress with a corset-like top and a pencil skirt. The sheer neckline is embellished with a mesh neck corset embellished with pearls and feathers. The laces and chains in the Hyacinth shoes from Glamistry echo design elements in the dress.… Read the restNature is the inspiration for all ornamentation.

Everything is fair in love, war, and fashion.

Distance lends discretion, so I am beginning my post with a full body shot instead of the usual three-quarter photo I usually use. My blouse is a bit sheer and revealing and so closer, more detailed photos are below the cut on behalf of those who might be taking a peek while at work. I am repurposing a lovely lingerie bodysuit from Luxuria because as Reiss Field once said, “Everything is fair in love, war, and fashion.”

Luxuria released a long-sleeved bodysuit applier at Romp. The Leanna Bodysuit has a décolletage that drops down to the waist. I paired it with a gorgeous, flirty skirt from NYU. Here you can see the beautiful lace detail that makes the bodysuit so gorgeous. It comes in several colors. I love the subtlety of the color taupe and made it the theme of my outfit, bringing in a soft blush to add contrast with the jacket and handbag. The jacket was a Christmas gift from Lelutka last year. The handbag is from Rowne and beautifully made. I love handbags and have a crazy number of them in RL, but far fewer in SL.… Read the restEverything is Fair in Love, War and Fashion. - Reiss Field
