Alone in the Desert

FAD 061515_001e pm

Hello Readers!

I have a bit more from the new FAD Fashion Event to share with you. I know I have expressed my love of options before, and I would think many would agree. I enjoy playing with options and seeing how outfits sort of fall together. I started with the Trinite shorts and top.  They come in quite a wide array of colors so they are just made for mixing and matching. Once I opened up the Bergdis jewelry set from Zibska (complete with cuffs, necklace and earrings), I used the HUD to set it to more of a turquoise look and selected the best Trinite shorts and top to match. The whole ensemble gave me a sort of desert feel so I put on my Glamistry Lantana ankle boots and a hat/hair combo from Argrace and I was all set!

I am always a fan of Nailed It and her polish set for the “Bird of Prey” round of FAD is fabulous. She of course had a shade to match my look, and my favorite go-to makeup is Madrid Solo, I am wearing the London Liner set in bronze. My poses are from the always fierce Linda Reddevil of Devilish Poses.

There is plenty of time to make this round of FAD, but don’t delay, you don’t want to miss out!

More of Me

Hello Readers!

There is so much amazing fashion to be had on the grid that it is rare when I just get to blog my thoughts. This is about to be one of those posts.

As I shop various events (And man are there more and more of them everyday that it is hard to keep up! My favorites bar will soon be MAXED…though now I wonder if it has a limit or if I can start a second row…lol) I am finding there are more and more things available for the various mesh bodies which I enjoy seeing. I have had a Physique for a long time and love it though I am sure I will likely be purchasing a Maitreya mesh body as the sliders provide different results.

The lack of good mesh clothing for the amazing mesh bodies that are available is the main reason why I have not worn my mesh body more often and I am sure I am not alone in that. Appliers are alright, but I prefer them for tattoos…like the one from White Widow I am wearing in the above photo. Clothing appliers on mesh bodies is just too ‘system layer’ for me. I love when designers offer a fitted mesh option of their clothing at the very least, if not items specifically rigged to fit the specific bodies. I always appreciate that effort and will certainly frequent that designer more in the future (like Blueberry for example).

So why am I hung up on this? Well as a model in SL we are held to a certain standard when it comes to our size, which is no different than a model in RL.  I got used to being long and skinny and all my model friends are long and skinny too so it wasn’t anything unusual or obvious, until I tried to sit in a chair or go shopping with the masses. I often won’t sit at all because I can’t stand my feet going into the ground or my body parts being contorted in strange ways. I know this is a matter of preference, so I am not complaining at all. My avi doesn’t need to sit anyway, she never gets tired. What was surprising to me is how much tall teasing goes on from other residents. I have been insulted more than once as I mind my own business teleporting store to store by other residents who are child sized or some other form, and it is just amazing to me that people would be so bothered by someone tall that they have to make a comment. This behavior from others doesn’t ruin my day, I just shake my head and ignore it, more interested in shopping than engaging with someone who would be so rude. Besides, I am proud to be a part of the organizations in my profile and I take that seriously, I do not want to be provoked into bad behavior.

All of that being said, I do enjoy being tall but I also enjoy being curvy. With the system body there is no room for many curves when your avi is that stretched out. That is where the mesh bodies are particularly helpful. They can give you curves that the SL body can’t. In order to achieve the curves in my photos here, I merely had to bring my sliders down in a few key areas and I was still able to retain some of the model height I enjoy. After so many years spent tall and skinny (though I did try to be as curvy as a small would allow me to be…I always tried to be the ‘thickest’ skinny girl on the runway), and more options for the mesh bodies, I am spending more time being curvy and loving it.

On top of all that, June 14th was National Puerto Rican Day celebrated with a massive parade in on 5th Avenue in New York City. I was so gripped with Puerto Rican pride I had my own celebration! I broke out my corny prim flag, got some cool salsa moves and made my first machinima! It is nothing fancy, but I was pleased with the result, and am encouraged to try my hand at more of it.

In closing, VISIONAIRE Institute had its 3rd graduation this weekend and my congratulations go out to all of the graduates! At the party on the iMoogi sim where VISIONAIRE HQ is I learned of a fun concept called Made to Model, which is an SL Reality TV show much like America’s Next Top Model (which I watch religiously). At first I figured I couldn’t do it as I am not a new model and have accomplished much of what I had set out for myself to do as a virtual model. However, I was encouraged by others to try my hand at it and I am. I encourage others to sign on for it as it sounds like a fun experience for sure. I know there have been other shows like it in SL before (so I have been told), but I have never seen them nor have I ever been on one so being the curious silly person I am, I signed on asap!  Do have a look if you are interested, and maybe slip me a vote if you are so inclined? 😉

Thank you for reading my randomness,

Hello Readers!

The FAD Event is still going strong with its first theme: Bird of Prey. I had some fun creating a look with some of the items available. I couldn’t help but notice how nicely the wings from the Ghee outfit “Exotic Birdy” for the recent Fantasy Angels show went with the dress by [FLRN], so I just had to combine them and hop in the lovely cage by .snapped.

[my styling]
hair > TRUTH HAIR Harmony [Ponytail]
makeup > Madrid Solo – Raven’s Solo Full Set
earrings > [CX] Claw Earrings Rust
necklace > Necklace Unisex Amalia (Cyan)- COMMON by Azoury
dress > [FLRN] Avis Savage Dress @ FAD
wings > Exotic Birdie Wings by Ghee
bangles > Silver Bangles by (red)Mint
nails > Bird of Prey Set by Nailed It! @ FAD
cage > .snaphappy. Caged Beauty- Black Wooden @ FAD

I have included the designers’ images for the finer points of their creations for you here:

AZOURY - Imperial Shoe (Orange)

Azoury designs some of my most favorite couture shoes and “Imperial” is most certainly high fashion! Nailed It! has been a long time favorite of mine when it comes to nail polish. Giela does an outstanding job with her textures and I have been painting my Slink nails in this set ever since I got it!

Sing me a song…

Hello Readers!

I love the connections I have made in Second Life. Much like in real life, there are some friends you talk to every day and others that you don’t, but each relationship is different. It is like that for me and my SL mom, Discovering Destiny (aka Lark). She and I have been friends for almost as long as I have been in SL. We became close in role play and even though I have exited that world, she and I remain very close. It is a relationship I value very much.

Lark is the designer behind On A Lark and she makes amazing medieval style clothing. She and I had a lovely Skype chat today in which we spent most of it discussing our mutual enjoyment of the Outlander series that recently aired on the Starz channel. I wouldn’t have even heard about this series had it not been for another close role play friend, and I have enjoyed watching a wonderful show and being able to talk about it with some of my closest friends. Lark then told me all about the Claire dress she had made inspired by the show and I linked her to an image of Clarie’s wedding gown that I hope she will make! *hint hint*

Pilar

Hello Readers!

I came to Second Life as an educator and after many years I ended up a model. My in between years were spent exploring the richness of role play, so I certainly have a soft spot for it and I love visiting role play themed shopping events. Kiddo’s most recent addition to the We ♥ RP event is called Pilar and comes in several colors. It is elegant in its simplicity and it certainly delivers the craftsmanship I love in all of Kiddo’s creations. We ♥ RP is going on now and this round will end at the close of the month.  Do be sure to pay it a visit, you will be glad you did.

gown > Pilar in wine by Dead Dollz @ We ♥ RP
