My Neck Is Made Of Steel

I love rollers for my SL hair. I love all things that, as my friend Isla says “enhance the narrative”. Pixel Gidge is a character and her pixel life is played out for the most part here on this blog. Rollers are exactly what a girl this prissy would need, and let’s face it, she would have LOTS of different kinds. Tiny Bird released a set of can rollers YEARS ago that were adorable. This past week Truth and Ploom both released roller hair dos for us pixel girls, and since I’ve already blogged Truth’s – let’s take a look at PLOOM! Ploom made roller cans which is hilarious and cute.  As always you can use the hair dye hud of your choice – I’m using one of the dipped huds. I also am amused because these cans appear to be full. NO SACRIFICE IS TOO GREAT FOR BEAUTIFUL HAIR LADIES. I don’t care what they weigh – get those cans in your hair. It’s Friday – time to get cute! Gidge Is Wearing:

Let’s Go

I miss the days when I would get off work and come home and GET READY TO GO OUT. It was exciting, that my day was getting ready to get started at 6pm and the night was ahead. Makeup, hair and nails would be freshened up as we headed out into the adventure of the night. Those were the days. Now mostly I just would like a nap. Ah but in SL I don’t have to have energy. On days when this viewer is cooperating I can do anything! Anything except move that end table where It should go because that crashes my machine. LIVE WITH IT! I do. With my butt part of my body as it’s supposed to be, I’m ready to get dressed. Now, what to wear? Gidge Is Wearing: Skin: Belleza – Ria 9

Coffee and a Smoke

Sasy tells me I am only allowed to smoke in SL because I do not smoke in RL. I suppose that’s fair. I’m blonde and svelte in SL also – and that’s also the opposite of RL so symmetry is good. Tuesday mornings are my bane. I always think of great things I should just HOP ON AND DO in Azeroth and then I forget my servers are always down for maintenance right now. And I pout and stomp about. Or I have a coffee and a smoke, as it were. I’m wearing one of my favorites from COLLABOR88 this month – from ISON. You definitely need both the tank and the skirt – they are gorgeous together and will work great as staples to wear with other things. I’m also sporting hair from a new hair dresser – KOY. This is Belle – and I love the blondes on the HUD.  You can hop this slurl to find KOY at THE DECK. Well I’m dressed for work, so I had better get to it. Ttfn. Gidge Is Wearing:

An Easter Beach Day Without My Butt

I couldn’t decide what to do this Easter with my pixel self so I slipped into this crazy bikini from The Plastik and headed out into the surf. I saved these crazy knitted swim tubes from Ray Skin for years. I forgot how hilariously awesome they are. When you can’t cam around freely, and you have to move slowly from one thing to the next in SL bcse you’ll crash, you tend to get SO focused (I do anyway) that you can miss things. for instance I was set on taking some cute beach pics. I had this nagging feeling though, picture after picture, that something was wrong. I couldn’t figure out WHAT thought. I pulled out my favorite beach towel from W.Winx and my new adorable sandals (surely they’re practical for the beach right?) from L.Warwick and managed to get three pictures before my machine told me to stop. Then I saw it. That’s right. I’m wearing the wrong shape. I AM BUTTLESS. Note to self. Check shape. Happy Easter everyone! Itsonlyfashionblog.com

And down by the shore an orchestra’s playing

This month’s Genre showcase is the big band era, those few decades when men were dashing in top hats and tails and women were elegant in gowns full of drama and glamour. No wonder I chose oOo Studio’s Glamorous and Drama pose series for this photo set. When they begin the beguine
It brings back the sound of music so tender
It brings back a night of tropical splendor
It brings back a memory ever green This opalescent Satin Doll gown from Cog & Fleur is all sinuously sexy and full of drama with the low back and the softly draping silk charmeuse fabric that is so lustrous in the projector lights. I suppose that with the dress being named Satin Doll, I should have used Johnny Mercer’s song, but I don’t really like it that much – and went for this Cole Porter classic instead. I’m with you once more under the stars
And down by the shore an orchestra’s playing
And even the palms seem to be swaying
When they begin the beguine Slink’s Classic Pointed Toe pumps in silver work beautiful with the pewter opalescent gown.… Read the rest0419_003

Variety

  One of the many blessings of our second lives is the great variety we can enjoy every single day. Not only can we jump from winter to summer to the moon and back, enjoying sims from every continent, but we can enjoy more ordinary variety that is also fulfilling. In our first lives, moving is expensive, time-consuming and hard, hard work. In our second lives, we can move so much more easily. I love the Barnesworth Anubis brownstone released at last month’s Collabor88 and have finally finished moving in and decorating. Here’s a snap in the living room with the big bookcases that sandwich the fireplace. Just because it is a 19th century building, I did not feel a need for traditional decor – so it’s a bit eclectic. We also get a unique kind of variety in our clothing. Gizza released adorable pants, shirt and suspenders yesterday and each of the three come with HUDS allowing you to change them even more. So with the first one, for example, the tie, shirt and pants can be red, purple or yellow – or you could choose a monochrome.… Read the rest0418_002

Luxe

MiaMai’s Monica Outlander has just released her Luxe collection for spring. It includes a dress, top, pants, jumpsuit and long skirt with items coordinated to mix and match. Items include a HUD that allows you to choose the belts, ribbons and other embellishments so you can coordinate tops with skirts and pants easily. I am wearing the Kalia top with the Anya skirt and chose the ribbon to coordinate with the skirt’s print. Each item comes in solids in cotton and silk and in a range of prints. I love the thought that went into the print and color coordination. Speaking of color coordination, check out the gorgeous gold-tip mani/pedis from FLAIR for Cosmetics Fair. I also love how the skirts billow and move. Monica has perfected the art of making long skirts that feel realistic, not moving in straight lines, but wafting with curves and waves. What makes this collection even more fun is that the interior is lined with a contrasting print. It’s just deliciously cheeky.… Read the rest0417_002

This moment yearning

THIS moment yearning and thoughtful sitting alone,
It seems to me there are other men in other lands yearning and thoughtful,
It seems to me I can look over and behold them in Germany, Italy, France, Spain,
Or far, far away, in China, or in Russia or Japan, talking other dialects,
And it seems to me if I could know those men I should become attached to them as I do to men in my own lands,
O I know we should be brethren and lovers,
I know I should be happy with them. Walt Whitman Exile’s new release is a fun and wild style with fly-about curls and waves. The FLAIR manicure will be released tomorrow at Cosmetics Fair.  April is National Poetry Month and I was thinking how much joy poetry brings to my life and of some of my favorite poets and this poem from Leaves of Grass came to mind as so very appropriate for Second Life® where we do become attached to people all over the world – and what a profoundly wonderful thing that is.
The camisole and pleated skirt from ISON for Collabor88 is stunning.

Art and Teaching

I sometimes joke that my love of art began while playing Masterpiece, the art auction board game. But, that was purely superficial. My lifelong deep appreciation for art came from my art teacher. I actually had two art teachers, a husband and wife, Mr. and Mrs. S. She taught 7th and 8th grade art and he taught 9th-12th. Since our entire class took art in 7th & 8th grade, her classes were larger and much more basic. She was a good teacher and I liked her, but her husband was a great teacher, a master teacher and I loved him. Not only did I learn a lot about art from him, but I also learned about teaching and humanity. He was a preternaturally calm teacher, steering his way through life on such an even keel that even a hurricane could not twist him about. He may have grown up on a farm and taught in a small farming town and lived on a farm himself, but he brought an urbane sophistication to life – sharing with us his appreciation of modern culture, music, books, movies and artists that were often unheard of.… Read the rest0409_001

Get Thee To Japan Fair

I was scrolling through my PLURK feed early yesterday morning and caught “JAPAN FAIR” from one of the blog aggregators that I added recently. That sounded like sometihing I couldn’t miss so I changed my blogging plans and decided to find this. The blog post they listed didn’t give a slurl and I couldn’t find it in search. God Bless Dr Google. For all the info here is the blog. And because I’m awesome here is the SLURL.  It’s nicely laid out, I’ve only done half of it thus far. I confess I bought one of the first things I saw – LOVE this minidress. This same creator also has some really dashing men’s clothes. Yes I said DASHING. They are, hush. There were so many adorable kimonos and other items that I’m going to have to consult my budget before I go back. Be sure to get over and check out JAPAN FAIR. Several creators also have out a free gifts – NOT to be missed cute stuff. I’m not wearing any.… Read the rest

Help Me Find You on Marketplace

My afternoon began with a text from one of my best friends, Codie. “I need your help. I have to find something to wear to Dirk’s funeral.” We spend a lot of time getting dressed for frivolous things in SL, things that don’t matter.  It’s amazing how your thoughts wander though, when what you are dressing for something that does in fact matter to you, when it’s not frivolity and trite.  Codie wanted a hat with a veil. My first thought was a place called Hatpins. I used to think they made adorable things, vintage and might have such a hat. I TP’d to the location in search and found a beach. The land was still marked as being said store, but it was a beach and there were palm trees. Not helpful. I went to marketplace and first tried out the word veil. I had half expected to find nothing but wedding stuff, color me surprised when some cars, lingerie, and other random items popped up. No veils. I thought hmmm, let me try two words and typed in VEIL HAT.… Read the rest

Bacteria Free Second Life

A cold has been kicking my butt for six weeks now. I think it is almost gone and BAM! it’s back stronger than ever. That makes me so grateful for the relatively bacteria-free world of Second Life. You can get a cold in Second Life, but you have to buy it and you can take it off the minute you are sick of sneezing. I was sick of sneezing about a month ago and would love to detach that gesture right this minute. Meanwhile, the lovely cardigan dress from Gizza is keeping me warm. I added the pencil skirt from League because the dress was a tad short for my taste. The dress comes with a HUD that allows you to change both the dress and the cardigan with three options each. Gizza made this dress in 4 iterations, floral, boho, hippie and solids and each and every one is irresistible.  Gizza also released some matching wedges but with my rheumy eyes and sneezing, I simply did not have the patience to match the skin tones. Besides, these booties from Ingenue are perfect and suit the length of the skirt better.  … Read the rest0404_003

Blowing in the Wind

I stopped by League the other day, looking for some appliers for my Slink hands and almost forgot to buy them, I was so distracted by this gorgeous skirt and mohair sweater. I wanted to buy fat packs, but I was disciplined and settled on this gorgeous fuchsia. The sweater comes with a solid color or a gradient. I am wearing the gradient in this photo. A lot of life’s answers are blowing in the wind, as the Bob Dylan song asserts. But what does that mean? Some people think it means the answers are right in front of our faces – answers we could pluck from the air if we only chose to do so. Myself, I think it means that the answers are unknowable, as imperceptible as the molecules on the wind. Of course, Bob Dylan’s explanation is as ambiguous as the song. There ain’t too much I can say about this song except that the answer is blowing in the wind. It ain’t in no book or movie or TV show or discussion group. Man, it’s in the wind – and it’s blowing in the wind.Read the rest0327_002

What to do when they don’t make your color?

  Not every hair designer makes colors that are a perfect fit for all of us. Redheads encounter many Japanese designers, for example, who do not make red hair.  I really loved this .Shi hair style called Blown when I saw it on Strawberry Singh’s blog .  Joy LaPerriere is just beginning to create hair for .Shi, but has made gorgeous and unique styles. Sadly, they were in this monochrome, shades of blue and shades of purple. What’s a redhead to do?  Change it, that’s what. I apologize to the majority of you who know you can edit and tint your hair, so long as it is modifiable, but for those who don’t – this is a short easy tutorial about how you can make your hair red. I usually start with a brown that I add a bit of coral to make a nice red, but this monochromatic works, too. I select edit and click on the textures tab. Then I click on the Color box  - that is the white box on the left in the row of three boxes. It brings ups color dialogue.… Read the rest0327_008

Does This Mesh Make My Butt Look Big?

GOOD. I have resisted the big butt because I just hadn’t seen one yet that really quite did it for me. I didn’t DISLIKE them I just was MEH, and thus didn’t warrant picking one up. But I was having a Gidgey moment this morning that Sasy was helping me with, and I thought DAMN Sasy looks cute. I didn’t really realize that she was wearing a mesh butt, her butt looked good but in a subtle way – bigger, rounder, super sexy but not so big I couldn’t stop staring at the butt. And with that she and I were off to demo butts. Seriously, that’s friends, the kind of friends who demo butts together. I didn’t realize that these are the leg too and not just an ass add-on. I love the long meaty legs, I admit. It’s a great look, healthy and femme. This brand, Uluckie , fits perfect with my slink feet. The other thing which is brilliant is that you don’t have to wait for 50 creators to make appliers! This mesh add on has instructions for just making those phatazz appliers ALL work for this product.… Read the rest

Adore or Abhor ? Oh ADORE!

Adore and Abhor are at SKIN FAIR with a set of offerings to enhace and mix up your regular skin options. Sileny made, at the request of her daughter, a bunch of brows in fun candy colors with a Morticia Addams severity to them. If you were a 20 something in the 90s you knew 20 girls who drew on their brows like that. Now they’re in their 40s and sad that they have no eyebrows. But that’s a different story. There are a ton of colors, I’m only bringing you a few today. I’m pairing them with the Candy colors hud of hair color from PLOOM. For the life of me I can’t figure out why I haven’t I haven’t spent more time playing with this set of colors. They’re so much fun. This great long style that has a perfect built in modesty feature (boobie covering) comes with size options to fit your mesh boobies AND the visage head so no worries about it fitting.  It’s available at MY ATTIC this month for 95L – a steal. Adore and Abhor also released tintable scars and freckles at SKIN FAIR.… Read the rest
