I have been wanting to blog this romper for some time now (it was at the last round of On9 and is now in store), as it has quickly become my new favorite romper. (I ♥ ROMPERS) Of course it is by Wicca’s Wardrobe and is called Melinda. (My RL name is rather close to Melinda so that made me smile.) Melinda fits all the most popular mesh bodies which is a huge plus for me as my alts wear Belleza and there is so little of the good stuff for Belleza in comparison. The pose I am striking is from one of my favorite pose makers, THE Linda Reddevil of Devilish Poses. She has three new sets out and the pose I am using is 1-52. I have been living on the Elysion sim lately since giving up my own land due to limited SL time. Elysion is a lovely sim. I could never simscape as nicely as they do there. I enjoy finding new places to stand as I style and work on notecards, so it was only natural that I would feature this wonderful sim as my backdrop.
I am often invited to judge Mr. & Miss Virtual World challenges…and that is not a brag or anything, just something I enjoy doing. As a model who had put herself out there to be judged by others on many occasions, I feel my experiences make me qualified to fairly judge others who are putting themselves out there in competitions. I am always flattered to be asked and always look forward to going. I take care in making sure I am presentable. As a former Miss, I firmly believe I have a standard to uphold. So when looking for something of quality to wear, it is no surprise that I default to Wicca’s Wardrobe. As any who know me or read my blog at all, Wicca is a longtime friend of mine and while we have not made an official SL relationship out of it, I consider her a sister. She and her man Red made my country costume when I was competing in 2015 and I LOVED it. So Wicca and MVW still go hand in hand for me. Besides, while Wicca has no “Face of Wicca’s Wardrobe” or anything, I know I am the Wicca’s Wardrobe Runway Princess! One of the other things I enjoy about judging MVW events is seeing friends that I don’t always see…like Pam Astonia! Pammy cracks me up and is just so talented and lovely…chatting with her is always a perk of judging!
The photo above was my look for the 2nd and final auditions of this round of Miss Virtual World 2017 and here are the details:
RL is allowing me to get my blog on! So here I am with one of my full figured role play avatars, wearing a recent release from Wicca’s Wardrobe. I LOVE that Wicca is able to design for all Belleza sizes as I personally prefer Freya…the curvier the better I say! So here are all the head to toe details:
I don’t get to blog much anymore, due to a variety of SL and RL reasons, but that doesn’t mean I don’t want to! I was a roleplayer in SL long before I was a model and I still rp in SL, though on different avatars. The image above is me in one of my rp avatars wearing the latest from Wicca’s Wardrobe and I just had to share it. I am wearing Nimue on my Maitreya body which is available at the current round of WE ❤ RP. It comes with arm sleeves I am not wearing in the photo and a great color changing HUD that gives me all sorts of color options.
It has been quite some time! I few things have changed for me in RL (for the better) and I needed to take a step back from blogging. I honestly have missed it. It is a much needed creative outlet. I wanted to make sure and post one last time in 2015. I don’t know why that was so important to me…perhaps a bit of closure on another great year.
I have spent a good deal of this month looking forward. My career as an educator in RL is going in a new and exciting direction…one I have wanted for a few years now. In SL I have taken on more administrative duties…my position with SCALA Models Management has been broadened, and I have come to work for my dear friend Wicca Merlin as her General Manager for Wicca’s Wardrobe. I still manage to get on the runway and show up in print from time to time, which I enjoy greatly. I never thought I would feel like the ‘old guard’ when it came to SL modeling, but I suppose I am. I have had my run at various competitions and actually have enjoyed being on the judging end of competitions this year. Things really have come full circle and I couldn’t be more pleased.
For many years in SL I have had my own homestead. I have enjoyed having it and sharing it with friends. I realized recently that I miss the interactions with others…the live music, dancing, and games that I had long associated with my earliest days of SL. I suppose I have never outgrown a longing for those sorts of activities and a sense of community, even when I thought I had. I decided to give up my homestead and move into The Grove and I couldn’t be more excited. I know The Grove has been around for quite some years. Friends of mine have lived there at some point, and I am glad to find a few that still do.
I was sorting my massive inventory when I realized I had nothing to wear. It sounded incredibly dumb to say that, but it was true. I have so many items from years ago that are just obsolete and I know I won’t wear. I have absolutely fallen in love with mesh bodies and I wanted to wear something that fit my Lara. So I managed to find something to wear and decided to hit my favorites bar, curious to see which SLurls still worked, since I haven’t been shopping in SL in a bit either. I first went to the Thrift Shop, or thought I had. It turned out to be the FROST Fashion Fair and I loved having a look around. I have no idea how many more days it is open, but I found a fair amount of goodies there.

Round 4 of the FAD Fashion Event is now open and the theme is Vintage Haze. There are loads of lovely items to choose from. For my first look for this round I chose Wicca’s uniquely crafted Emilia Hat, the sexy mesh body loving Kaylanie lace dress, and the Deidre shoes by Ghee. My friend and sim squatter Nariko commented that I looked ready to go to the opera! A super sexy opera perhaps… 😉
Don’t forget that each round of the FAD Fashion Event has a styling contest where the winner gets free gifts from that round’s participating designers. Visit the event for more details.

I LOVE color, the brighter the better so this round’s offerings are right up my alley!
I am wearing the Alice Hat in purple by Wicca’s Wardrobe and the Joie blouse and pants by *MSS*. My pose is Andrea 1 by KaTink (@ Sneak Peek). But wait, there’s more…
Look at the sexy back on this blouse! I love it! I am wearing my Lara in these photos, so you can see the standard sized mesh fits very nicely over it.
The styling contest is still in effect this round, so not only should you come on over to check out all the brightly colored goodness, you should pick out a few items for yourself, style ’em up and enter the contest for a bag full of goodies!
