Cinco de Mayo started out as a day to remember and celebrate the Mexican victory over the French at the Battle of Puebla, but has since transformed into a day to celebrate Mexican culture. I put this outfit together using mostly older items, but the Wonton
Sude Fringe Jacket from the round of The Mens Dept
that just opened today was really what I needed to bring it all together. I also adjusted the newly-updated FATEstep
Ziggy Chucks* (now available in an unrigged version so that you can manually adjust them) to be the colors of the Mexican flag, which matched them to the jacket and sombrero. Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Easter, I am fully aware of the importance of this holiday to some, heck my Dad's a preacher. But I am now of another faith. So, for me, it no longer has that meaning. Now for me its about springtime, colored eggs, chocolate, bunnies, and flowers.
And so to revile in those, I chose two areas, 2015 Easter Town and Botanica's A-Mazing Easter Egg Hunt to explore. You can see all of the photos I took here .
Easter town is on the sim that for every holiday they change the theme. I'm not sure what the next one will be, possibly not open till they do it up for the 4th of July.
It was bright, colorful, and cute, with many things to do and buy.… Read the rest
Here comes Peter Cottontail
Hoppin’ down the bunny trail
Hippity hoppin’, Easter’s on its way
– G Autry
Easter is roughly a week away, so of course there’s a great need for bunny costumes, right? Even if there wasn’t a burning need for them, here they are, because it seemed like a fun thing to make and inflict upon the huddled virtual masses in Second Life. Not only do we have a prime Easter Bunny costume here in lovely rigged mesh, and knitted from the finest virtual Angora rabbits, but this number can double as jammies for that sleepover you’ve been aching to have. The cool thing about this costume (apart from it being a bunny and all), is it comes with a color HUD that gives you six delightful Springtime Eastery color choices.
I’m sure you already that that this might entail pink. But not to worry, there’s also purple, yellow, blue, green, and white with pink bits. Hey, bunnies are fluffy and cute, and come in pastel colors, apparently. … Read the rest

A space decorated by Alexand Vantelli
As the cold snow drifts across the windows, leaving small swirls of leftover flakes in it’s wake. The toasty warm fire crackles and snaps spermatically. And the wall of clocks clings and chimes as the hours pass.
Snuggled up under a supple cashmere throw with matching socks and comfy thick sweater; we sip our hot coco spiked with a cinnamon stick and more than a few drops of rum. Hours pass by like minutes as we dive into our books and magazines. Cuddled up at either end of the couch sharing our blanket and plenty of plush pillows. The soft light from the lamps, christmas trees and fireplace illuminate the room.
In the dinning room, the settings and plates are all set for the family feast. We better enjoy this quiet night while we can.
Whilst in the bedroom the room fills with the scent of pine and nutmeg. The bed is draped in soft, plush comforters and pillows. Inviting and warm.
Paper lanterns radiate a warm gentle light through the small holes decorating them, which seems to make the room glow with the radiance of hundreds of tiny fairies.… Read the rest

As I sit and listen to Casting Crowns sing "Heard the Bells", I worked on another beautiful Christmas look. Lyrical B!zarre Templates created Brilliant in traditional brilliant red and white.
A pair of pearl earrings from ((Crystal Line)), makeup from October's 4Seasons, lashes from Gaeline, and hair from EMO-tions complete the look. If you're looking to really get all dolled up in holiday attire, you'll enjoy this.
Even after the holidays pass, you might retexture, recolor, and this gown becomes something altogether different for other seasons coming in the new year. That's the beauty of full perms mesh creations. Have fun with it!

I begin the day with a captivating gown created by Kyra at Baboom Couture. This Dark Angel gown replete with the most unique skirt and beautiful wings struck me on a personal level and I found myself feeling ethereal, as if for a moment or two, I had an angel on my shoulder as I worked with the photos.
Each year the sophistication of the program on which we play or live or however you define your Second Life grows more realistic, offers more options and in essence becomes more... more beautiful, more dynamic, offering more options to the creative minds behind content creation. This reflects both in the gown I wear and the surroundings. Just look at the rabbits, the trees laden with snow and the icy waterfall. Gorgeous.
October's 4Seasons has a brand new set of Holiday Designs nails for you, coming very soon. They're unique in the fact that instead of having a colorful base and silver tips, the silver is a crescent of shiny and the rest of the nail is painted color with silver etchings.… Read the rest
You may notice that I didn't change much from my #HandsUpDontShoot photo and this set. These photos actually came earlier in the evening but then I got focused on the PEACE campaign and put this aside for a few hours. This morning, I share with you.
Belladonna Couture created this Reindeer Mini for Peace On Earth Hunt 7 (POE 7). You can see that without the jacket, the reindeer is right at the heart of the sweetheart neckline and perfect for a fun holiday festivity. Truth hair still has its 50% off sale in progress through 15 December, and every single hair style is on sale from the new releases to old favorites.
I chose Raquel along with a few others because you could never have too many hair styles. Maxi Gossamer created the fur and has her furs also on sale right now with a mega discount. I use her lashes all the time and have ventured into other things she's created. Bangles seen in the Don't Shoot photos are also Maxi Gossamer, her holiday gift.
Sales and gifts abound this holiday season.… Read the rest
The Holiday season has blundered into our lives once again, and bludgeoned us with all the usual malarkey involving stuff and things and junk and stuff. Of course, folks in Second Life are not immune to such shenanigans, and merchants are all over the creating opportunities like bees to honey (hey I’m being G-Rated here).
I have been busy peppering Avatar Bizarre with new things, both for general new releases, and for all the various events I’ve signed up for.
The first thing to tell you about, oh my droogs and devotchkas, are the Morelia eyes.
Morelia veridis is the Latin name for the Green Tree Python. This snake hatches out yellow, red, or brown, and eventually turns emerald green as an adult. It is non-venomous and diurnal, meaning it’s active during the day, if you can call a snake coiled up in a cinnamon bun of verdant rodent terror “active”. The Morelia eyes are based on the python’s slit-pupil orbs, and are available in ten colors. … Read the rest
