Nuts in the Boom Room

“It’s your fault!” A high-pitched squirrel shriek wavered in the wind. “How could I know humans disguise explosives as delicious nuts!” Exclaimed another voice. “It said they were explosives! It even had a picture of a boom!” Third voice joined in. “It was dark! …and …and I can’t read! I’m a squirrel!” “SO ARE WE ALL!” The chorus sounded furious, if screechy small voices could be such. “She’ll ground you for life once we… you know… hit the ground!” “No more flying ships and adventures for you-uu!” The chittering sound managed to convey a very strong nyah-nyah tone. “No more nuts either! Explosive or otherwise!” “Serves you right, too!” “Oh for Tesla’s sake: boys, just shut up for a moment.” The human voice sounded more amused than angry, although it attempted to stay stern.… Read the restsquirrely1bs

Miss Crinoline’s Concern

“Miss Crinoline, do you feel it is safe within A Clockwork Spiral?” “Of course it is safe! We might have an occasional unsavory increase in population for being the county’s only port in the skies — you know, airship crews and such — but that does not mean we could not upkeep the standards of a perfectly respectable little community.” “So you would feel perfectly safe to walk the streets at night?” “Are you implying I would walk the streets at night? I have half a mind to forget I am a lady and give you a few choice words right about now. Besides, why would I want to walk the streets at night anyway? The shops are not even open! …they are? Hm.” “Back to the airship crews, Miss Crinoline: they do not break the peace of A Clockwork Spiral at all?” “Naturally there is some more… noise involved, but they are not stupid, only rowdy. We are in the sky, their ship is docked and there is nowhere to run unless they fancy growing wings.Read the restlady1cs

Colours on Menu

Tasty, tasty colours. In a world where the colours are nourishment food is consumed through sight: the brighter the colours, the sweeter the experience. The Big Bad Bun definitely thinks so! Only the brightest, happiest meals for him! This particular restaurant has delivery butterflies as waiters to maximize the tastes. The rainbow-dressed woman is not a part of the staff, she’s a minion. The very best colour-hunter the Big Bad Bun employs. No pale pastels would survive her jewel tones and if she encounters anything especially dull, she might just have to dig up the neon gun. Rainbows and eyecandy can be serious business. The building and the plants by Chic Buildings, the delivery butterfly by Studio Sidhe (really a hang glider) and the piercing by .:ellabella:. are from Taste the Rainbow Hunt. The colourful cocktail is the item you have to find in the hunt. The deliciously happy Gingy ice creams by !Ohmai are from Atelier Kreslo’s Festival.… Read the restcoloureater3cs

All the Hair!

Yes, it’s that time of year again: Hair Fair has started! Four sims, hundreds of new hairstyles to drain your pixel wallet and plenty of lindens going to Wigs for Kids to make all that spending even more appealing. I wanted to start with the hairstyle that was automatically ‘must-have-this-right-now’ for me: La folie du jour by Bliensen + MaiTai. I admit that I adore long hairdos (especially with colour change scripts or naturals packs) for blogging purposes. I also love strange big ‘carry a miniature city on your head, with space tentacles. and ice cream.’ hairdos, they always make me squee and throw my money at the creator because who wouldn’t want something like that? But when the blogging is done and the characters emerged from rampant imagination settled down to sleep again, I wear short hair. Especially sort of twenties bobs. Bliensen + MaiTai had a whole booth of those. Enough said, really. Remember that Hair Fair has a demo group you can join to check out all the demos in the lagless comfort of your own home.… Read the restdoneed1bs

Astrid and the Anglerfish

It sounds almost like a story, titled like that. It could easily be one, too. If you manage to have a pet anglerfish, especially one that magically survives out of water, there’s bound to be a story behind the sharp teeth. There’s something absolutely enchanting in stories, pictures and views that present to us normality with just one thing out of place. Just one surreal detail breaking the surface, pulling us into a story, into a different setting, thought pattern, mindscape. Somehow the reality surrounding the one strange thing makes the thing even stranger. If you find a piece of magic in what should be an ordinary day, it stands out against all the dull normalcy even brighter. Makes us look at everything more carefully, more in detail. Makes us think. Makes us see. Perhaps makes us even realize that if you learn how to look, there is magic in our ordinary lives. You just have to remember to attune to it to be able to see it. The setting, the dress and the anglerfish are all available in the World Goth Fair.… Read the restastrid1bs

Black and White

Sometimes they are both red. Every story has at least two sides to it and often one is painted black, the other white. Fairytales do this, many books and movies do this, presenting the side that the main character is not on in simplistic unlikeable hues. One can always recognize a more realistic story from having more than two sides, none of them truly evil or good, but with more developed agendas of their own. Despite all this we all enjoy a story with clear cut division. We were raised on fairytales, with heroes and villains, with arch-enemies worth an epic struggle. There are many such pairings in fantasy, but one of the more popular ones in recent years has been vampires and werewolves. Both traditionally evil, simply different viewpoints to their supernatural existences. Vampires tend to at least pretend to be urban, civilized, cultured and decadent. Werewolves are seen to represent nature, uncontrolled passions, rage and brutality.  Maybe that is why they have been so popular lately: a step away from black and white, both dancing in their own shades of grey, always ready to be covered in red.… Read the restblackandwhite1bs

Busy Mode

Sometimes life resembles juggling more than anything else. Keep everything in motion, one part at a time, one movement after another. Don’t think, don’t analyse  just keep going. Catch the umbrellas before the wind pulls them away. Or the privateering bunnies hijack them as an impromptu airship flotilla. There’s a rhythm to juggling — or keeping all your thoughts balanced and somewhat grounded — if you let one escape you’ll be spending all your time chasing it and when you get back to the others, they’ve floated away as well. Don’t lose focus, stick to the rhythm, don’t let anything distract you. If everything else fails: prioritize and have a cup of coffee, then start all over. The coffee will help. The parasols by HANDverk and the poses by PictureThis! are available in Pose Fair until April 14th. You can find the umbrellas in Exposeur’s booth, since they were designed for those poses.… Read the restbusy1bs

Yes, You May

Have this dance. Kiss my hand. Charm me. Be enchanted. You may also pour me a drink. Sit down and relax. Not all red queens demand your head to be cut off. Some prefer it right where it is, much more interesting conversation to be had that way. After all, decapitation sprees might be entertaining for a moment, but after that it’s endless boredom. One must cultivate their pleasures and learn to balance between them. A spared neck today is entertainment tomorrow.

Rainha

There are days when no amount of polite diplomacy will do. Rainha is experienced enough to know that any good queen needs both armour and a weapon sometimes. She did not get where she is by laying about in beds waiting for a random prince to come over to kiss her or losing her slippers. She might appreciate partnership and company, but no one needs to save her: she already saved herself. There’s no laws about warrior queens having to look manly: Rainha certainly doesn’t. Impeccable outer appearance has always been an important part of leadership, after all. Don’t believe the vile rumours coming from her fortress lair, all lies and slander! Just because she likes huge updos and the colour red doesn’t mean she’d be a villain. Stereotypical propaganda! Rainha is a combination of armour and leather dress and it’s a new release by The Muses. The dress and the cape are rigged, the armour is made out of garment layers and the rest of the attachments are non-rigged for re-sizing.… Read the restrainha1bs

Curiata Curliques

There’s something irresistibly alluring in masks: temptation of the unknown, promise of adventure, theatrical illusion, the base premise of being something or someone else than you are. Perhaps it’s that combination of unknown and adventure that also makes them so sensual. Especially when so intricate and covered in decadent curliques as this Curiata mask by Illusions. The equally sensual lingerie set by SAKIDE can be found in Perfect Wardrobe until February 9th. There had to be gold in the look: rich, luxurious hues of it. Like in these Bali earrings by Bilo, for example. Or in the Timea ankle boots by lassitude & ennui, both new releases. Something about the way the closures of the shoes twisted made them a natural companion for the mask. As for the furniture, going for the Marquis set by ~Libertine~ was an obvious choice. If you’re going to be draped in decadent curliques, might as well lounge in an area to match the mood.

Words are all i have

Again i say like so many times before that i´m not much of a shoe person, be it RL or SL i simply don´t get most women and quite a few men´s fascination about footwear, i usually go for comfy in RL and barefooted whenever possible, so when new feet come out i usually do check those. A few days ago Gos decided to divide the shop in a way that would allow better branding and market segmentation, so Gos Boutique was born, not only catering just for women, but releasing over this weekend quite a few new models of shoes, and two bare feet versions in mesh (i´m wearing the flat version here) and a new revolutionary tinting system, well every woman just sighs and sometimes cringes when tinting is mentioned , i know i´ve spent quite a few hours messing with huds to get a reasonable match, i don´t even require a perfect match, just reasonable, and if you´re blogging it becomes tiring with every skin change, and trust me i do a lot of those, means a few more wasted minutes on feet tinting, time i could be using to enjoy SL.… Read the rest

As Winter Falls

It’s time for wool and hats and mittens that I am completely lacking in the pictures. The title comes from a combination of this Winter sweater dress by Geometry and the jewelry set it was inspired by: As Darkness Falls by House of Rain. The sweater dress is available in Gothmas by Gaslight and it is one whole item with the skirt to make sure it moves well together. The fringe boots are a new release by SAKIDE. They come in several colours full of quirky winterness. The Lumi-hair by Wasabi Pills is available in the current FaMESHed round. With that name I would have bought it no matter how it looked, but it’s adorable with the texture change winter hat. Lumi means snow in Finnish, in case you were wondering. All I need is some hot coffee now… and those mittens.

The Sense of Story

There’s something within us that feels the need to perceive beginnings and endings: we divide our lives into series of events, try to pinpoint when they began and why, name when they ended and how. It appeals to our sense of story, I guess. We see lives as stories, whether they are ours or others. Thus the beginning of a new year tends to feel like opening the first page of a new storybook, full of possibilities and potential. We take a moment to look back to evaluate and even judge how the previous storybook worked out: did it go as we planned, did it bring us joy and satisfaction, did it make us cry, was it full of tedium and unnecessary details, what could be done to make it better? That is where and when the resolutions arrive: this year, this story will be better. No more same mistakes, less dull repetition, more laughter, more love, more meaning, more moments to cherish and remember. Then we blink and suddenly it’s year later and the time to turn the last page again.… Read the restNew Year 1

Rose in the Snow

This is a post to simply wish everyone wonderful holidays, no matter which one you celebrate and what you call it. Or wonderful ordinary day of December if you do not celebrate any. In Finland we call Christmas joulu, from Swedish jul, just like yule. The same word is used no matter what your beliefs are, the word itself implies absolutely nothing about whether you just like ham and presents or feel more spiritual about the day. I like the idea of wishing that people are happy and leaving the rest of it to themselves. When you look at history it’s clear that the human mind -needs- a midwinter holiday. Whether it’s to reassure ourselves about sun’s return in some way or simply needing a break from the dark and the cold, there it is: celebration in the middle of the darkness. When you exist with just a few hours of daylight per day, you need a marker telling you that soon, soon, it’ll all turn around, the peak is reached, the journey back toward summer and sun begins.… Read the restRose in the Snow 1

52 Colours: Amazon

Two years of colours comes to a close with Amazon which despite its name works well as a festive tone. I want to thank Luna Jubilee for running the colour challenge for so long, that’s over 100 posts from all of us just for this. Admittedly, I did ram the fifteen first colours in one post since I joined the challenge a tad late the first year, but still. So much squinting, swatch tone comparing, brainstorming, look and concept pondering… it gave rhythm to my blogging, these weekly colours. It was an important part in my becoming consistent blogger, posting at least a few times a week since I always felt there should be minimum one post between the colours. Thank you, Luna, thank you all the other colour bloggers, have a wonderfully colourful next year, even without any official challenge! The dress is one of the limited edition holiday dresses from Bilo, available only for December, so go get yours while you still can! The hairstyle is from Alice Project’s advent calendar and the poinsettia choker by Chaos, Panic & Disorder can be found in Gothmas by Gaslight.… Read the restColours: Amazon

Ornamental

Ornament dress by SAKIDE is slinky, short and with a cut for cleavage. What else could you possibly ask from a holiday dress? It’s available in the Frost Winter Fashion Fair until January 2nd. The cleavage cut is perfect for eyecatching pendants, such as this Luminos necklace by Snow Bound.The hairstyle is one of Alice Project’s advent calendar gifts — they are scriptless especially festively striped versions of her normal styles. Both poses are from HopScotch’s advent calendar, as well as the snowball that goes with the pose. The lipstick is from the huge packet of various holiday reds Mockie sent to her group. The hopeful chest by Snow Bound and the sad little christmas tree by *Perception* are available in Gothmas by Gaslight. As for the D-LAB penguin… he just wandered over to have a cup of coffee. On such a snowy day, who could blame him?

52 Colours: Madder Lake Deep

The name of the colour piqued my interest so I did some poking around the net to find out that madder is a plant whose roots have been used to produce red dye for millennia and lake in this context does not refer to water, but is derived from lac. We’re speaking of the bright, strong red in the old masterworks. If it weren’t December, I might have gone to that direction, but since it is I admit I took the easy route and interpreted it as ‘santa red’. Shame on me. The hair by D!va, skin by Izzie’s and the house by Trompe Loeil can all be found in the current Collabor88. A lot of the decor is my old favourites of the season, but the noms and champagne by Poche in the foreground are available in RMK Gothic Frost Fair. The Ashraya dress by Geometry was just the right red and with all the gold it turned the whole look into a decoration, just need to find a big enough tree. I liked how the skin looks both fresh and blushed, either straight out of snow or perhaps after a tad too much mulled wine.… Read the restColours: Madder Lake Deep 1

Twice the Libertine

I have wanted to make this post since Volstead released the Libertine lingerie. I knew the vintage lace would match perfectly with the decadence of the Marquis furniture set by ~Libertine~ and the name match was just too entertaining to pass up. The lingerie consists of system layer garments for panties and top and an additional sheer lace mesh top to give it a more realistic shape. If you’re feeling daring, try leaving the glitch layer out. The matching Charleston slippers are also by Volstead. All of the furniture and decor are from the Marquis set, most of the pieces also sold separately. The furniture has mature (cuddles) and adult versions with even a completely safe lounger if you just want to pose with red velvet and golden curves. Be careful of all the drinks though, you never know what might happen if you indulge too much. All of it is called Libertine for a reason.
