citadel

i am forever looking for awesome new places to snap pics — it can often be harder to find a sim to stage my “virtual photoshoots” on than it can be to figure out what to wear. there are lots of detailed && wonderful builds out there in the metaverse, but *finding* them can be a bit of a problem!

i personally find inworld snapshots, rather than ones taken in my big white box, to be more… interesting. and while it certainly can be a challenge to find the right sim to use as a backdrop, it is a challenge i am willing to take on! because otherwise?

shots like this wouldn’t happen.

and it’s all thanks to ylva korhonen (and also ivey deschanel!) that i even know about this build. it is full of such amazing sci-fi gorgeousness that i about *died*.

cidatel is actually home a *new* roleplay opening soon… and while i myself am not a big roleplayer in SL, this spacey station is something that could reeeeeeeally tempt me.

05.01.2012

especially if i had an excuse to dress like this more often! \o/

i knew i had to dress befitting of the ship’s scenery, so i based my look on matching this dress i picked up from ladies who lunch — with long latex gloves from sn@tch, makeup tattoos from miss shippe’s studio, cstar && ae meth, and some *killer* thigh-high mesh boots (that are so affordable!) from hoc.

i took these fashion shots on the ship’s hangar, but there was even more to explore. so i decided to take a few extra photographs, just to show off a li’l peek at the rest of the build. check ’em out!

gray

04.16.2012

i’m doing my best impersonation of a cybernetic officer today.. and i’m really likin’ it. with so much inspiration out there in the blog-o-sphere (mainly thesefourgorgeousladies [edit: oops i mean five!] who do it *far* better than i do), i’ve been embracing my.. *sci fi* side more && more lately.

so raise your weapon (fitting for an officer of the space law, hm?) && jam with me while i ramble about my look!

04.16.2012

this look would not have come together at all if not for this skin i picked up @ wear gray for a day from glam affair. the silvery tone made me think of metallic skin more so than a simple human who just happens to be colored grey. and this leah face is one of my favorite skins right now.. it really was a win-win to grab it.

if you haven’t visited wear gray yet, there’s still time to do so! the bloggy link up there will take you to the official blog, where you can learn about the charity wear gray is for.. and you can see some of the *other* awesome things you can grab. gogogo!

so, with the skin… since i was already channeling somethin’ spacey, i went with the theme && paired a dress i scooped from sys in all its deliciously tailored glory with some ridonkulous boots from neurolab inc (that are currently half off in this lovely shade of hot pink!). all i needed were some stockings and a pair of animated glasses (which my still photographs really do not do any justice for — both lenses on these glasses are animated and awesome), both of which are from graves.

while i technically do not have a weapon to raise (couldn’t find a cyber nightstick to wave around!), i still think i fit the part pretty well. now where did i put my glowy laser handcuffs…..

personal

i dressed around my shoes today (and am actually wearin’ pants, surprisingly, considering what i said in this post right here, ahaha)… and what amazing, amazing shoes they are.

03.13.2012

don’t worry, there’s a close up of ’em further down. 😉

they’re new from gos && are out @ the fashion for life event (that’s where i picked ’em up, but they are available at the mainstore, too!) and i absolutely adore them. they are… delicious boots. i also blogged the eyes from insufferable dastard available at the FFL event yesterday, and am wearin’ a second pair in another gorgeous color in this look today… but i thought since i didn’t mention the event at all in my last post, that i would today.

time to get a li’l bit personal~

cancer… hits very close to home for me. i lost my dad to cancer 14 years ago && even to this day, it is something i still struggle to deal with. he went through chemo, through countless surgeries, and spent more time in the hospital in his last few months than he did at home. he was sick for a very long time and when i lost him, words cannot truly describe how much hurt i felt. how much i still feel.

so an event like fashion for life… i went with bff vivi and we bought donation items and, in our own li’l way, supported a cause in the hopes that maybe our lindens can help prevent another family going through what i went through. that maybe someone else’s father won’t lose the battle in the (hopefully near) future.

plus, you get some fantastic items in return for your donations.. so it truly is win-win to visit the various sims && pick yourself up some nice new shinies. somehow, the items look even better on when you know you bought them to support a really fantastic cause.

03.13.2012

all donation items are clearly marked, so make sure you visit your favorite stores on the FFL sims and, at the very least, take a peek at the donation goodies. it really is worth the effort.. ’cause every little bit counts. ❤

lazy weekends

/me yawns && stretches…

mmmnhh.. such a lazy day today~

i didn’t do much of anything all day. slept late, watched TV (catching up on episodes from last season’s rupaul’s drag race… can i just say how *fucking obsessed* i am with this show!? omgaaaah!).. i barely left the comfort of my couch. and it was *nice*, i’ve not had the chance to vegetate this way in a looo~ooong time.

but i did put forth the effort to get dressed out of my PJs. ;p and i figured i should blog today, even if this post is on the cusp of today and tomorrow. i wanted to show off the lazy comfy look i put together for today, at least… but i didn’t feel much like posing and primping for it.

so instead, i moved my lounging from the couch to lounging outside.. from sofa to outdoor swing instead!

it’s baby steps, honey. baby steps.

03.03.2012

and apparently, one of my meeroos felt like sneaking into the shot. i totes think she photo bombed me. but she’s cute, so i’ll allow it. everyone say hi to nymph~

it was nice out today, surprisingly. a li’l chilly (hence the hat from red mint && the super cute mesh toe socks from intrigue co, just to keep me warm!), but still sunny. it makes me hopeful that spring is finally on its way. i’ve been trying to think of ways to make our beachy bit o’ land more.. seasonal. add back some greenery, maybe a few extra palm trees, and really make it look.. lush. as it is, it’s pretty much sand, water && house (a very nicely decorated house, tho! eheh~), and i am ready for the extra warmth and sunshine to come back to my second life just like it is in my first. or at least, i’m really hoping it’s coming back to my first life.. i’ve been so itching for springtime weather that i’m practically going insane.

03.03.2012

this outdoor swing was a good start to make things look more springy. it’s out for stumblebum @ cheeky pea and comes with a *ton* of nice, lounging poses… which were perfect for my lazy day today. it’s in a temporary spot outside, so i’ll have to think of a nicer place for it to go, but it caught just enough sunshine to appease me underneath our outdoor trellis.

maybe once i’m feeling less lazy, i’ll actually work on sprucing up the parcel with plant life. after all, nothing says *spring* quite like bright flowers and rich green grass. it was just so tough today to get the motivation to do anything… and i *still* have that season of drag race to finish (it’s season 3.. and i totes think raja is gonna win!). i swear, i’ve been watching so much of it lately between the older season and the new episodes too (sharon needles.. love her ❤❤❤) that i’m gonna start thinking i’m a drag queen myself..

if you can’t love yo’ self.. how in the hell you gon’ love somebody else!? can i get an amen up in here!

cheesy songs aside ;p the two lovely ladies posin’ with me today are probably my favorites. in *either* life. of course, bff vivi should be familiar to anyone that’s read my blog before.. but let me introduce you to the gorgeous, dark haired girl with us! kystria aura is one of the sweetest, most *fun* people i’ve met to date in my slife && i’m very lucky to be able to call her a friend. and luckily for me, she was rather compliant about posing for a bloggity post with the bff && me!

02.19.2012

all three of us are wearing a version each of the super cute *mesh* balloon dresses/tops from aura. they were out for just *20L* @ the love gatcha event on amira, but are still available at the mainstore for some extra gatcha funsies. and since kystria has been mia for a li’l while in world, having an extra one of these dresses in my inventory was a nice way to introduce her to how mesh works, how it fits && how it moves.

and, it’s a testament to how versatile fashion can be — all three of us styled this top *completely* different without even trying. one as a sexy short dress, one more casual over jeans && one a li’l edgier with ripped up fishnets and boots! \o/

02.19.2012

thank you, kystria, for posing with us! it was lotsa fun~ ❤❤ i am sure this won’t be the last time you guys will be seeing her here on my blog either, no worries. 😉

sunshine

if i can’t have the sunshine && warmth of spring in my rl..

02.17.2012

..at least i can dress like i have it in sl.

a new stumblebum round started the other day, which means new items in some *gorgeously* bright && happy colors. and this top from paper.doll, in all its golden yellow glory, was absolutely perfect to perk up my i’m so sick of winter blues. yellow usually is not my first choice when it comes to colors, but this top just *spoke* to me. i love this shade, it’s like bright sunshine-in-a-fabric && i actually picked it out over the hot pink and black versions. who would’ve guessed that, hmm? ;P

02.17.2012

i was actually feelin’ the whole colorful thing today too, so i paired the yellow top with a *gorgeously* colored mesh bag from aura out @ the back to black event, some super cute yellow anchor earrings by intrigue co which are out for collabor88, a pretty necklace from amorous and some super fun eyeliners from cstar. i’ve actually got *three* eyeliner tattoos on, because they were so nice for layering. each wing is a separate tattoo and the rainbow-y top liner is the third, which make such a unique shape.. and of course, add some extra color to my makeup, too~ the nice thing about these liners is that they *aren’t* limited like the skins usually are @ cstar, so you can go grab these at your leisure (though i *highly* recommend them, they are great for adding a bit of extra interest to the eye makeup on your favorite skins!).

i’ve done two rather dark looks the past couple of days, so i thought brightening it up a bit for a change would be fun. and it was, i adore the way all the colors i have on look together. it may be a li’l premature, and i’m sure i’ve said it a couple times recently, but i am sooooo ready for spring to be here. and colors like this remind me exactly why, *nothing* says spring like some vibrant, happy yellow and it makes me even more excited for warmer days to get here!

one of my favorite sims to snap piccies on is innsmouth. the entire sim is run down, dark && wonderfully frightening (especially the ambient sound!). it’s one of those places where just wandering around, looking at the build, completely inspires snapshots… it’s definitely a must-see if you’ve not been yet!

so bff vivi && i decided to head there in themed attire to take some photos. …well, not even *some*.. more like *a lot*, but. i decided to pair it down to just a few for blogging purposes. ;p

01.09.2012

my look actually all started with makeup, believe it or not.. i built my outfit around the new leopard print tattoo eyemakeup from cstar limited. you can wear just the leopard spots to either side of the eye, or wear the spots with a deep smokey eye as well (which is how i’m wearing it here) && i looooooove it. there are a *ton* of colors to pick from, so of course along with the black.. i picked up the neon hot pink set as well, but they are in limited quantities! and @ *100L* a pop, these are going so so fast. if you love the leopard eye like i do, then go right now && snag a set for yourself. go. gogogogogogogo!

i really could have gone into leopard overload, but decided to only match the spots on my eyes with these sheer leggings from izzie’s, layered underneath the jacket && dress combo from aoharu and whippet & buck. some tall boots, a gun strapped to my thigh, && a freshly-fed vampiric skin from pink fuel make me look like some undercover demonic .. cop. but! at least it’s a cute undercover demonic cop? with some *fierce* leopard eye shadow! \o/

01.09.2012

vivienne‘s look all centers around the *adorable* blackheart dress set from katatonik. there are so many options with this ensemble, it’s almost unreal. you get the dress, the stockings, the gloves && a li’l lopsided top hat (which is srsly so cute x3 even if vivi didn’t wear it!). then you get a sheer version of the top part of the dress, that you can wear as a shirt on it’s own, a sheer version of the skirt, *and* the matching lingerie. @_@ soooo very nice for the price, there’s a ton of mixin’ && matchin’ in there with all the pieces you get.

she’s also wearing the *new* hair from exile out @ the dressing room blue. this hair is just… all waves and deliciousness. the headband/bow combo is color-change && i adore perfectly messy it is. i got the pack at tdr blue too, even if it doesn’t come in my *preferred* blonde color, just because it was too cute to pass up. maybe i’ll be brunette for a day just to wear it since i love it so much, ’cause apparently i have no problems goin’ from blonde to pitch black. ;p

oh, and i *did* mention vivi’s outfit comes with the lingerie…

…right? ;D
