FashionArt: Lybra

Hello Readers!

I am not sure if it was the lovely FireBird Designs Blue Peacock suit I wore yesterday, but I was in such a mood for suits that I brought out man Silly (aka a recent release called Cain by 7 Deadly S{k}ins) and slipped into this artistic exclusive creation for FashionArt called “Drake.”Lybra for Him 2k|CREDITS| skin & shape > Cain by 7 Deadly S{k}ins | outfit > !:Lybra:! Drake (includes jacket, pants, belt and shoulder feathers) | hair > /Wasabi Pills/ Dylan  – Black coffee | pose > Posesion

Drake isn’t the only FashionArt exclusive Lybra has to offer.  There is also “Captive Heart.”

Captive Heart (includes wings, animated head piece [blood and sparkles], mesh top, sleeves and panties, clothing layer shirt) | shoes > Manhattan by Essenz (also at FashionArt) | pose > Everglow

I found both of these outfits so theatrical.  They are very well crafted and sure to bring some drama to your wardrobe. (The good kind!)  See them for yourself at FasionArt, going on now until May 31st.

Thank you for reading!

FashionArt: FireBird Designs and Essenz

Hello Readers!

I just love trying on all the wonderful items from FashionArt.  As the ladies know, there are quite the abundance of gowns and dresses available on the grid, but how about a nice suit?  I love this suit from FireBird creations.  I am wearing it with the no shirt option as that is the mood I am in, but there is a more modest option as well that includes a shirt.

From the reverse below, you can see why it is called “blue peacock.” I really enjoy the texturing on the jacket.  The whole ensemble has a definite spring and feminine feel to it. That being said I felt the urge to contradict some of that soft femininty in my styling.

I thought the Mondriaan-inspired Manhattan shoe by Essenz was a perfect fit for this look.  This lovely shoe is also available at FashionArt.

I really enjoyed letting my imagination run wild in this look.  I even finally caved in and got some ears!  I have admired non-system ears on so many peers and friends and even strangers, that I thought it was about time I invested.

Today I have some newness for you from 7 Deadly S{k}ins and Legal Insanity.

Up first we have “Cain” a new skin and shape by Izara Zuta of 7 Deadly S{k}ins.

Cain looked really sexy in these hot new pants by Datrip Blackbart of Legal Insanity.  The “Stefan Slim Pants” come in black, brown, optical, zebra, camo brown, groovy black, groovy brown, leopard, leopard pink, patchwork (azure, grass, pink, red, and yellow).  They come in a ladies version too, but that is another blog post. *winks*  I just loved the Stefan pant in zebra!

Chasing Koko

Hello Readers!

I think I am giddy because I have had a LONG and mildly stressful week in RL thanks to work and it is FRIDAY!  I love looking at my friends’ Flickr streams and appreciating their work.  I came across one by my dear friend (and sim-mate) Nariko and I was inspired to mimic her.  Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery right? *winks*  Here is Nariko’s (aka Koko) image, posted today in honor of the latest issue of Style Kingdom, which is the debut for both of us in this wonderful publication. Click HERE to see Nariko and click HERE to see me…we both had the pleasure of being photographed by the very talented Pam Astonia. So here is my rendition, done in what I affectionately call “Koko Style.” (I hope you can see by now that my legacy name was not completely off base! *chuckles*)

bangles > Zaara : Ramya wood bangle *gold*
pose > Slouch

I need to get sappy for a moment. As I felt the urge to snap the above photo I found myself suddenly quite reflective.  Nariko and I met as models in AVENUE’s Model Academy, and our friendship has blossomed beautifully since.  Even before VISIONAIRE was a reality, she took it upon herself to teach me about SL photography, improved my photo taking abilities exponentially, and made me love location shooting.  I value her and our friendship so much and I feel so lucky to have her in my life.

When I was shooting for Style Kingdom, I shared with Pam that being published like this was one of my biggest SL modeling dreams.  I fought hard to earn my place among the talented models of Style Kingdom and felt once I had won the 2nd public casting that I had finally “arrived.”  So this issue has a very special place in my heart.  I have to thank all of the judges again who were a part of both castings, but namely Dougie for putting me through the most rigorous styling challenges I had ever faced as a young model.  I grew so much through that series of castings, his very honest critiques pushing me to grow as a model and stylist.  Through those castings I also got to meet Pam and Kiana…incredibly supportive and encouraging women who made the journey all the better.  So thank you Style Kingdom, for challenging me and welcoming me as a full fledged model. I look forward to a long relationship with you.

Thank you for reading and allowing me to share a bit more of me with you.

Skin Fair and More!

Hello Readers!

I am back with some more Skin Fair fabulousness.  No sooner had I made my previous Skin Fair post when a new arrival from 7 Deadly S{k}ins was delivered and they are wonderful!

I rather enjoy transforming myself in various ways in Second Life.  Could be my role play past, or the simple fact that we can be anything we like in SL.  As you may know I have been working on my SL photography skills as well as learning PhotoShop for the first time.  I know there are some amazing things you can do with PS if you have the time and the inclination.  I felt like toying around some and wanted to capture a few renditions of me in one photo like I have seen others do.  So the image below was the result.  I know it isn’t perfect, but it is much more than I could have even dreamed of attempting only a few short months ago.  I credit Nariko Okawa and WrenNoir Cerise with giving me the information and the courage to attempt this.  I cannot praise them and VISIONAIRE enough.  It is time well spent, and is helping me to become something else I thought I couldn’t be…an artist.

me meyself and I

I will be breaking down the details of what was worn on each avi below, but items not represented in other photos beyond the above are:

On Sammael:
shirt > Delirum Style by Christel Morane – Male T-Shirt
pants > Delirum Style by Christel Morane – Male Pants
shoes > Blackburns Boots & Shoes by Vlad Blackburn – Sneak Black
prop > / XIAJ x ZZANG / Red String of Fate 07 @ L’Accessories Gacha Event

Now let me take the photo apart some and show you a clearer image of the items I chose to include.  First off I want to share with you the two lovely new skins 7 Deadly S{k}ins is bringing to the Skin Fair table.

wrath close

Here we have the latest from 7 Deadly S{k}ins.  The skin I am wearing is “WRATH B4b T2” and I am also wearing one of Izara’s shapes, similarly called “WRATH.” If you are not already familiar with Izara’s work, her skins come in a wide array of options, along with every applier you can think of…Slink, Phat/Cute Azz, Loud Mouth, and Lolas.  For the Skin Fair not only is she offering this wonderful skin, she is offering a few make-ups as well.  I rather enjoyed the fresh-faced look, so I am wearing the make up called “Wrath M2 DEF.”  Since it is Arcade season, I topped off the look with  a new hair from Exile called “Shine.”  This one is from the pastel pack and available at this round of The Arcade. Oh, and let’s not forget my eyes.  As they have been pretty much all the time of late, they are IKON and these in particular are “Eternal Eyes – Hazel.”

sam close

Here we have the latest in the 7 Deadly S{k}ins male skin line, Sammael.  I am wearing the Sammael shape along with the “B3T2” version of the Sammael skin. I have added /Wasabi Pills/ Dylan Mesh Hair – Black coffee and of course IKON ‘Sunrise’ Eyes – Celtic Green.  Handsome isn’t he?  Sammael and Wrath will both be available at the upcoming Skin Fair.  It opens March 14th.

Up next we have some newness from my SL Mom Discovering Destiny from On A Lark. Her most recent release is called “Nani” and I am wearing it in Sunset. I have also added another recent release of Lark’s, the Crysantha Arm Cuffs.  A better look at them can be found in my slideshow at the end of this post.

oal nani_front

Next we have me in my usual appearance with skin by Natalie Wells of Deesses.  I have donned another recent release from Lark called “Helena.” It made me think angel, so that is what I ran with adding some wings from the past round of the Fantasy Gacha Carnival by Una Daxter called “SteamPunk Wings Down.”

Helena Angel

I loved getting to pull out this older hair by Truth (from pre-mesh days)!  I have wanted to use it in a styling forever and finally had my chance!  It is called Tahnee in coffee.  I also have on the Helena collar and bangles by On A Lark.  The Helena gown comes in a few colors, a sample of which can be found in the slideshow below.

Thank you for getting through a rather wordy post of mine.  I have so much more to share and I am avoiding this paper I have to write. I guess I have put it off long enough.  Happy shopping and thanks for reading!

Short and Sweet

Hello Readers!

It was a rather taxing week at work in RL so it left me rather drained.  In SL, I am prepping for Style Kingdom’s second public casting and have begun advanced modeling classes with Opium.  So needless to say I am tired from RL work and thrilled by my present SL modeling endeavors.  I however cannot forget about my wonderful sponsors so here we have my latest look of the day featuring Marshmallows and HopScotch.
