I’m In Love With This

Hello Readers!

I know I am not alone in my love of my mesh body. It is exciting to me to watch the trend in clothing designing in SL at present. It really is getting increasingly common for a designer to create an item that is not only standard size, but made for quite a variety of the mesh bodies available on the grid right now. Dead Dollz has always been a versatile and creative brand. When I opened the envelope to find Astra for the Vintage and Cool Fair, I about fell over. This dress looks amazing on Lara and comes in a variety of colors. Here is all you need to know about Astra:

  • It is the exclusive item at Vintage & Cool which started August 21st and ends September 4th
  • Astra is an original Maitreya Compatible Fitmesh creation +Applier
  • Available in 6 colors:  Blue – Black – Petroleum – Purple – Red – White
  • Cost is L$350

Get yours before its too late!

Trying to Be Nearer

DD 0815015_001pm

Hello Readers!

It has been a crazy week for me in RL, but here I am…unwinding in SL with one of the latest creations from Dead Dollz. I just loved the flirty lil Bedelia dress. (Available now at Mesh Avenue until August 31st.)

“Bedelia is an elegant mini dress in light shiny silk. The dress is available in 5 colors, each pack contains fitted mesh for Maitreya’s Lara, Belleza’s Venus 3.0, The Mesh Project’s Mesh Body, and 5 standard sizes for SL System Body.” – Kiddo Oh

The delicate bow at the back had to be noticed, so I put on my new short curly ICONIC “Worth It” hair (August’s Group Gift) and struck a pose from KaTink (Portia 4). I always smile a bit wider when a designer includes sizes for mesh bodies and so since I am in love with Lara, I am wearing the Maitreya version of Bedelia, which of course fits perfectly. I am wearing Glamistry Heels (Parrasana) to complete the look.

Thank you for reading and I hope that you too get some time to unwind!

What I was listening to as I posted…

Hello Readers,

I’ve been giving something a lot of thought lately. The topic of blogging in SL is a rather big one with many facets. I have seen rants from bloggers or designers about one thing or another and I have never considered myself a public ranter. My close friends know I will privately rant from time to time, but that is the sort of thing you do to vent among friends, nothing that needs to be on social media or my blog. I enjoy each and every designer and event I blog for. I try not to take too much on so I don’t short change anyone. As we all know RL and SL can’t be helped at times, and we end up with too much going on at once to really do a great job everywhere we are committed. We have to make some choices and some things don’t get the attention they should. No one is perfect.

I have been a blogger for a lil while now and I am by far not the end all be all expert on things, but I am a person with an opinion and I am entitled to it, just as we all are entitled to our opinions. As a blogger I always do my best to adhere to the requirements of the designer or the event. I have been fortunate to blog for those I have come to know in some way, whether as friends or as contacts in the SL modeling world. It is my experience those are the best blogging relationships to have, where the blogger and designer/event organizer know one another or get to know one another and become friends. I think that takes a bit of the “business” out of it and helps people see the person behind the avi on both sides of the coin. I think if more did that we would see less scathing blogger notices or strict blogging requirements. I really do try to see things from both sides. I understand that designers/organizers want the most possible exposure to bring in the Ls to keep their business/event going, but let’s not lose sight of the human aspect. For me, (in RL and SL) personal relationships and treating others with respect should not be sacrificed for the $/L$.

One of the long standing beliefs I have had is that there is a population (hopefully a small one) of bloggers who are out to just get free items, and really don’t do right by the designers or events. I would imagine these sorts of bloggers don’t get very far as any designer or event organizer would be hip to that relatively quickly if they monitored their blogging pool at all. I have always worked to be sure I am never perceived as one of -those- bloggers.

So what am I going on about then? I think the blogger/designer/organizer relationship would be better if each party took a lil time to get to know one another. This is just one blogger’s opinion, but when we report our blogs to you, or post in your Flickr groups, some comment would be nice and perhaps even a bit of a chat. I know some designers/organizers may think they are too busy for that, but are you really? I think some investment in the human relationship between people is well worth the time.

All that being said, how about some styling credits? I am wearing one of the lovely creations from Dead Dollz called Isabeau in Snow, available now at this round of Shiny Shabby. I of course am wearing some HUDtastic Glamistry Heels, specifically Trillium. Then there is my background and pose, once again done by the fabulous KaTink. The pose is Garbo 1 and the background is Blithe 16.

Thank you as always for reading,

Weird Zion

Hello Readers!

There are two events you should be sure to visit. One is the Body Art Hunt (July 1-31) and the other is this round of Shiny Shabby. In the image above I am wearing the latest cosmetic creation of the talented Madrid Solo “Weird Carnivale” available now as a part of the Body Art Hunt. The dress I am wearing is “Zion” in ice created by the fashion forward Kiddo Oh of Dead Dollz and is available at Shiny Shabby right now. I can never resist shoes from Azoury and these are the Alma Wedge Sandals in aquamarine, also available at Shiny Shabby.

Silly in Sexyland

Hello Readers!

There is another event in town and thanks to Dead Dollz and ICONIC I was informed about Alice in Sexyland.

I love fun titles and names and “Alice in Sexyland” had my interest piqued right off. Now of course I could make an educated guess as to what the event might be like, but I was still curious (when am I not). So I slipped into one of the four variations of “Golconda” by Dead Dollz and teleported over.

Golconda is a fun fashion number by Kiddo Oh who never ceases to amaze me with her creativity. I tried to capture the fun lil twist each dress has in this photo…do you see it? I didn’t see it at first until I upskirted myself…yes, upskirted myself. I am sure I am not the only one who does that. They practically teach you that in modeling school…no one wants to be caught on the runway without their undies on and alpha layers are the perfect undie… Anyway, I was upskirting myself and I discovered that the underside of the dress was textured differently. Then I had that moment I sometimes have when I get why a designer named their design the way they did. The version of Golconda I am wearing in my photo is called “Night/Day,” makes sense right? Though now I am wondering why it is called Golconda…Merriam Webster says Golconda means a rich mine or great wealth based on Golconda, India famous for its diamonds…hmmm. I will have to consult Kiddo on that one!

I love tattoos and there were plenty to choose from in Sexyland, but I felt the one that best complimented the look I was going for was “Rabbit Hole” by Identity Body Shop.

Next we have one of two hairstyles made by ICONIC for the event. The one I am wearing is called “Wonder.” I had to take this photo not only to capture this fabulous hair (the bow is color change just like the hair is), but to show off a few things I picked up at the event, like the perfect nail polish to match my dress by Dark Passions. I LOVE this brand and really should have more of it. I first learned of them at a gothic event if I recall correctly and their “Koffin Nails” in red and red gradient are two of my go-to polishes. The one I am wearing above is called “Koffin Nails: A Tale of Wonder.” Another long time favorite of mine is the creator of the eyeshadow I am wearing, La Boheme Glamour Eyes Rebel Set 2. I seemed to overlook the fact that La Boheme doesn’t only make awesome nail polish, they make make up too! I could not resist putting on blue lipstick…I am heavily teased about this, it is an old story but an amusing one I won’t bore you all with (moral of the story is I am not afraid of color, I embrace it). But the perfect blue lips in my photo are the handiwork of none other than the talented Madrid Solo (not at the event), “Soft Kisses #8.” Then I added a cute lil necklace by Astralia called “Drink Me” which is also available in Sexyland.

As I as preparing to go to Sexyland I was informed there was a new release at Glamistry so I of course had to put them on! They are actually available now at the Kustom 9 event, but as always they come with an amazing color change HUD that makes all Glamistry shoes work with pretty much every outfit I own! They are called Parrasana Heels.

All of the poses I used through my romp in Sexyland were by the sexy Miss Reddevil of Devilish Poses.

The Alice in Sexyland event is going on now (started on June 12th) and goes through June 26th, so you had better get over there!

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.
