Weekend Warrior

Hello Readers!

Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there!  I have been super busy in RL with family outings and such since it is summertime.  I do miss blogging though and I was thinking as today was Father’s Day what I would do to acknowledge that.  For Mother’s Day it was easy…I have an SL mom in Discovering Destiny, but I realized I don’t really have a father figure in SL.  So as I pondered what sort of post I might make to acknowledge Father’s Day, I knew I would bring the latest sexiness from 7 Deadly S{k}ins aka Damon, but then I saw there was a group gift from Madrid Solo just for the men!  I adore Madrid Solo, so it was perfect!

This post also had a secondary motive I must admit.  My SL sis Fly started a rather interesting conversation on Facebook today. She had commented that she felt discriminated against at times because of her many different avatar looks.  One of the things I have always admired about my sis Fly is her ability to craft a variety of amazing looking avatars and model with all of them.  This is part of the beauty of SL.  While I am quite committed to the look of female me in SL, I rather enjoy mixing it up as a male.  Izara’s skins are PERFECT for that and I eagerly await her blogger boxes so I can see what the latest hottie looks like.  Legal Insanity feeds into the desire to mix it up as a male with their blogger items as well.  In the beginning I mainly enjoyed offering my sponsors a bit of versatility as mens items are much less blogged than ladies items.  Over time however I found that I really enjoyed the challenge of styling a good male look.  Again that is the beauty of SL.  Allowing us creativity in ways we hadn’t considered before.  So I often pick up things for men when I see them, I don’t wait for blogger boxes anymore and I enjoy styling male.  I love that I can do that on my blog and share it with all of you!

Thank you for reading and I hope you had a wonderful weekend!

Inspired by Chanel (close)Hello Readers!

Just felt like sharing a look I was asked to do.  I really enjoy styling challenges, some more than others depending on how much they frustrate me…*laughs*  Seriously though, I was first introduced to the notion of a styling challenge in my AVENUE classes and thought I would miss them sooooo much when class was over.  Little did I know that being an SL model is FULL of styling challenges!  Anyway, here is one of my latest.  Enjoy!

Colour of Couture: 1st Challenge

Hello Readers!

We have had our first photo challenge as candidates for Colour of Couture.  We were challenged to create a look inspired by Maison Martin Margiela’s Paris Haute Couture Spring 2014 collection.
I have to say I really do enjoy the fashion education I get through all the styling challenges I have been tasked with. This one was no different.  I studied the photos, discussed ideas with Nariko and Liat (aka my fashion team), did a little research on Margiela, and went with what jumped out at me.  Here is what I came up with.

SILLY AVRO - COC - FULLBODY| STYLE CARD |
tattoo top > .Identity.  – Courage To Change  [Fresh] Undershirt
bangles > LaGyo_Mirte bangles Black
coat > .Shi : Confi – Long Coat
shorts > ::Marshmallows:: Miss.Sweet Shorts-Twead
tattoo bottom > .Identity. Your Venom [Fresh] Underpants / Left & Right
shoes > erratic / selene – ankle boots
skin > Deesses Skins: Alicia – black eyebrows – ice frappe
pose > Slouch
location > R3volt Main Sim

SILLY AVRO - COC - HEADSHOT| STYLE CARD |
mask > LaGyo_Mirte mask Black
eyes > IKON ‘Sunrise’ Eyes – Celtic Green
make-up > Madrid Solo- Eyes & Lips- Shena- Full Set-Dark Night
earrings > LaGyo_Mirte earrings Black
hair > booN IIK551 hair black

We were asked to explain our thought process on our version of Margiela and this was mine:Inspired by the “inventive, creative and quirky” Maison Martin Margiela Paris Haute Couture Spring Collection 2014. Margiela’s collection was quite a treat for the eye in all of its contradictions. I spent quite a while looking at the photographs of this collection, as well as the live runway video of it, and did my best to absorb the bold quirkiness of it all.  I was immediately attracted by the tattoo top and knew it had to be in my recreation.  The over sized jacket was quite the curiosity as well so a quirky coat by .SHI appeared in my rendition.  The masks on the models were intriguing, and while we were not to obscure our faces, I had to bring in a bit of the mask effect with the piece from LaGyo.  On the whole I found the collection daring and I attempted to bring that factor into my look with wearing the tattoos from Identity.  There were also several short dresses in the collection, and I chose to represent that with these sexy lil tweed shorts from Marshmallows.  On the whole I enjoyed the challenge and the creative license it allowed me.

Time to Party!

Hello Readers!

The weekend was just what I needed to spark my creative juices!  I was working on a look for my modeling class when a notice came down that THE Seashell Dench was about to DJ at Zenzibar. I haven’t seen Sea in FAR too long and I had been quite used to seeing her often in my AVENUE classes.  So of course I had to finish what I was doing and put something on that was club worthy.  Knowing I had to catch up on all my amazing blogger items, I dove into that special folder in my inventory and came out with these FABULOUS pants by Legal Insanity. I knew the body cuff by .Shi that I picked up at the last round of Collabor88 would go perfectly with them, all the metals in the body cuff made me think of the glitter lipstick by {MUA}, and then there was the wild hair I just got from Exile…*laughs* So needless to say I had a blast throwing this look together so I could rock out to the hot tunes and sexy voice of Seashell Dench! (Love you Sea!! xoxo)

As my official modeling journey only begun this past summer, my inventory is rapidly expanding with all the goodies models need.  My latest area of focus is pose props!  Being as I LOVE Slouch poses, I could not resist a gatcha at The 24 a while back with props created by Eira Juliesse!  I was lucky and landed a rare after a couple of attempts.  I have been wanting to use them and here was my chance.

Style Kingdom Magazine Casting: Styling Challenge #3

Hello Readers!

I have to say I LOVED the third styling challenge issued by Style Kingdom.  The theme was Gareth Pugh winter inspired.  We were given this video to watch: Gareth Pugh Autumn Winter 2013 Runway Collection. I was completely entranced. I lost track of how many times I watched the video, taking in every bit of it, and then madly searching SL for anything remotely similar.  To all the designers out there, I would LOVE a jacket in the style of any of the ones in the video.  I looked all over SL for one like those that dominated the runway in that show, and sadly none could be found. However, I did find a lovely jacket that helped me pull off a Gareth Pugh inspired winter look.

pugh2_002 dress > Paper Couture – Victoria in black

pugh_003jacket > [sYs] MORPHEO – jacket F (black)

gloves > .Shi : Fingerless Gloves [Female] *RARE* @ The September Arcade

pugh_002hair > (red)Mint Hair No.14’13 ~ Black

eyeshadow > Zibska – EmilyTries ~ Black

lipstick > [mock] Mizu Chrome Lip Gloss (1) (Lip only)

On the whole I did well on the challenge. (You can see the results here.) The judges were very complimentary in their comments.  SL however seemed to think a “noob” turn would compliment the look, and the judges disagreed, costing me some valuable points.  I am disappointed that an SL glitch would cost me points, but what’s done is done. I am still in good standing with the judges and I look forward to the final challenge!

As always, thank you for reading!
