Can you spot the shopping bag in the photo above? Nope - that's my boob. Try again. If you guessed the giant fairy that I am standing next to, you guessed correctly.
I picked up this shopping bag at the Aloha Fair last month. I am trying not to think about where
she was hiding the gift inside of a bikini and sunglasses.
I admire the creativity of not using a plain plywood cube as a package, but this is 14 prims, gave off particles, and is taller than my avatar. Also, she startled me into thinking someone had TPd into my workshop and was watching me try on clothing.
While I'm at it, I might as well share some packaging pet peeves and loves.
Packaging Pet Peeves:
- Wants to animate me.
- Asks me to join a group.
- Takes up more than 10 prims.
- Is transparent on one side (because I always end up standing on the wrong side so I can't see it, keep re-rezzing it thinking there was an SL glitch, and end up with 533 copies of it rezzed before I realize what's happening).
- Looks like it wants to make a move on my husband.

I was asked to be in a wedding! My friend, the lovely and talented SL comic PhotographerC Bender, asked me to be a groomsman when he weds beautiful, funny, sweet ZoeyNewton later this month! I'm extra excited because I get to go to the bachelor party, too! (If I find out that I can also go to the bathroom standing up, I will be beside myself.)
Since being asked, I've been looking around SL to see what kind of female tuxedos are out there. Occasionally that's meant wandering into men's stores in the hopes that they'll have matching women's suits. I'm finding all sorts of interesting formal wear. But the best thing I've found so far is the the place where SL Adam Ant will shop for clothing when RL Adam Ant
decides to join Second Life.
I've also found the place where Siegfried & Roy
could shop if they joined. You will probably be shocked to learn it's the same shop where the Adam Ant stuff is. Know what? Men actually do
have a lot of clothing choices in SL.… Read the rest
The Lexi Project is a fundraiser to help raise money for Lexi Zelin / Owner of AngelRed Couture. Lexi has been diagnosed with stage 3 Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. 100% of funds raised will go to the event directly to her to help in her battle. There are 350+ stores at this event including donations kiosks, so if you feel like a shopping spree coming on this is the place to go. I am going to need a second visit to see it all. There are angels on her side to set this up for her and I wish her all the best in her battle. Here is the Blog with all you need to know about the Lexi Project and the LM and so on….

Awake in the night to whisper your name
Only a silence replies it’s answer a sleeping refrain
The moment dies but memory stays
Love like a run our way by
We spin and we climb
To where once islands cried
And there sometimes angels can be devils too
It’s true of you
It’s true of you – The Damned, Sanctum Sanctorum –
post to get the skinny on the Ashe suit, guys. Then you can hop over to this
post for more information on a delightful dress called Evelyn for the ladies.
Walk the Night With Me
is a Gothic event in Second Life, which starts July 18. It will cater to all things dark and romantic, so it was imperative to decorate the booth in rich purples. Avatar Bizarre’s offerings for this event include a Gothic gown (sort of Virctorian style) for the ladies, and a stylized Victorian style Gothic suit for the guys. In addition, there’s a Nyarlathotep head sitter with a color HUD available at a special 99L price just for the run of the event.… Read the rest

Often while shopping, I run across things I think the special guy in my life might like to buy. Unfortunately, there is no easy way to help someone shop in SL.
Here is what I go through if I see something he needs or might like:
- Write down the item name and store and/or take a snapshot of the item to remember it and show him.
- Grab a landmark for him.
- Wait for him to log in, not be busy, and have some free time.
- TP with him to the store.
- Find the item again.
- Wait for him to get a demo and try it on if he likes it.
- Give my opinion on how it looks and if I think it's a good buy.
- Watch while he buys the item and then loses it in his massive inventory - never to be seen again unless I remind him about it and tell him what it was named.
If this strikes you as a ridiculous process, that is because it is. A transferable demo would cut SIX steps out of the above process.(I give up on Step 8 - that's with us forever, I think.)
If he mentions that he needs a specific item, I scout for it to help save him some time.… Read the rest
