Colour of Couture…the Journey Continues!

Hello Readers!

RL & SL have certainly kept me busy of late!  I am back though and wanted to share another reason my blog posts haven’t been coming as frequently…it is a very good reason actually.  I am enjoying being a contestant in Colour of Couture.  Styling challenges are something I have enjoyed since my very first modeling classes.  Today I am sharing with you two of my most recent Color of Couture stylings.

The first was for Earth Hour an event hosted by Amazing Impressions Modeling agency that spotlighted the need for all of us all to be united in protecting our planet.

Earth Hour - Silly Avro - cropped

I was fortunate to be selected as one of 60 models to have an Earth Hour inspired look taken by the talented Marcopol Oh.  I am wearing “Earth” by Boudoir and “Oceane” by {MUA}. (above)

CoC Cosmo

Colour of Couture gave us the challenge of styling in the theme of cosmo couture, highlighting green and blues, and considering Earth Hour.  It was a very tricky challenge, and after doing my research on cosmo couture I arrived at the genre had to do with designing looks with unconventional materials…and quite often building and interior design materials.  So once I understood that, I began putting together my look.  I fell in love with these bits of crashed satellite I acquired from The Grim Bros., I visited one of my favorites (Chrysalis) for the one legged jumpsuit, added some hosiery from Erratic, fun hair from Ploom, sexy make up from Nuuna (neck) and {MUA} (full face).  My arm bands are recent releases from my SL Mom’s store On A Lark, my necklace a former Collabor88 item from Yummy, and the colorful bracelets were a Fifty Linden Friday find from Erratic. Oh and I can’t forget the awesome claw boots from Wicca’s Wardrobe.  I was just looking for a reason to wear them and this seemed it!

Silly Baroque

Our most recent challenge was to style inspired by Thom Browne. I had a good deal of fun with this one.  I have never been asked to style baroque before (or cosmo couture for that matter) so it was an exciting thing to dig into.  After doing my research, I found that Thom Browne uses a variety of materials in his designs, one of the most notable rubber/latex.  I used a Graves latex catsuit as a base and built from there.  I knew once again Collabor88 would be my best friend, providing just the right pair of heeled Oxfords.  I added a cute pair of slink enabled socks, and for a pop of color a sexy red skirt from The Plastik.  When it came to the baroque part I looked around a bit, one of my frequent stops being Bare Rose.  The white skirt, corset, and top came from there, I added a fun HUD driven cameo and set the image to “death”, added some hair I found at The Big Show by Little Bones (who are new to me…I love when that happens).  My make up is a combination of {MUA}, The Plastik, and Buzz Essentials. I added a fun lil Dia De Los Muertes black rose…complete with skull, thorns, spiders, and webs as a personal reference to the Latina in me, and added cobwebs to my hair.  I couldn’t resist Remarkable Oblivion’s cat purse to bring a bit more crazy to my Thom Browne inspired baroque.

A special thank you to my dear friend Gethsemane Idler for taking and processing this photo of me.  If you are interested in a great up and coming photographer he is the one!  Feel free to send him an IM or a note card if you are looking for someone to take your photo.  Tell him Silly sent you. *winks*

So there you have it.  A bit of why I have been so quiet on my blog, but I don’t intend for that to always be the case. I enjoy blogging and will continue to share the latest and greatest from the designers who have taken me on as well as things I find around the grid I think you might enjoy.

Thank you for reading!

It’s been a while…

Hello Readers!

It sure has been a while.  I don’t like for my blog to get quiet for more than a couple of days but I had two major events this weekend inworld and a busy week of RL work and SL rehearsals.  The weekend was a blast and I will be writing more about what kept me so busy in the coming two posts.  Today however I wanted to share some new make ups from {MUA} and announce my retirement as a {MUA} blogger.  I really do enjoy Shanty’s products, but with as busy as my RL and SL are getting it isn’t right of me to stay on as a blogger for her if I cannot blog in the way she would like.  I did not sign on as a blogger for freebies and I never want to be viewed that way.  I signed on as a blogger because I believe in the designers I work for and the quality of their work.  That being said, I will continue to buy {MUA} products in the future and I wish Shanty all the best.

Golden Ocean

Hello Readers,

Today I have a bit of The Couturier’s Docks courtesy of Syra Hyun of Baoba. Her hats have been a long time favorite of mine and I love how striking they are.

The arrival “Golden Ocean” kicked off a whole sea image in my mind and made me willing to test my PhotoShop skills and patience as I worked on the above photo.  I am sure I could have added more to it to give it that “underwater” feel…but all in good time.

Tainted Love

Hello Readers!

I am back with some more Dead Dollz, along with new {MUA} and a lil bit of Fantasy Gacha Carnival!

First off I have a wonderful new gown by Kiddo Oh called “Tainted Love” available exclusively for the Valentine’s Day event sponsored by Katiuscia Vollmar, owner of K.V Dream Fashion Agency.  You can read more about the festivities going on now through February 16th by clicking here.

valentine_dead dollz_aisling 1

The scene above isn’t likely one chosen for anything “Valentine” themed, but it spoke to me.  I am not one for the overly romantic in real life and when I visited Gates of Destiny, the barren beauty of the place captured my attention and ultimately reminded me of what my RL surrounds are very much like.  For as much as I complain about the dreadful heat we can get here in the summers, there is certainly a beauty in the land.

valentine_dead dollz_aisling

I have added to the amazing beauty of the Tainted Love gown by wearing the HUD controlled .aisling. GAIA – Necklace Gold (RARE) – available NOW at the Fantasy Gacha Carnival.

valentine_aisling_reverse

The reverse of this necklace is as breathtaking as the front and I would be remiss not to share it!

Further enhancing the look is one of the latest releases by Shanty Bookmite of {MUA}, “Valentine.”
