when i was younger, i was obsessed with batman. legit obsessed. the batman animated series was smack dab in the middle of my childhood — i’d watch it *every. single. day.* after school. and my obsession with batman all started with a little movie called batman returns. i’m really dating myself here, but i remember when that movie came out… and i remember being totally fascinated by it.

as i’ve grown older, i still love me some batman (for evidence, see see right here) and i’ve also come to love all things tim burton… and the two original batman movies *still* rank pretty damn high on my list of favorites. michael keaton will forever be batman to me. but my favorite character, hands down, in all of batman-verse…

…is catwoman.

michelle pfeiffer’s catwoman was *it* for me. she is catwoman… anne hathaway who? i mean, i know selena kyle was originally a brunette, but to me? she’ll always be a crazy feline-obsessed *blonde* bombshell who looks amazing in skin-tight leather. so of course, she was perfect for me to cosplay! ;D

10.24.2012

my own version of catwoman all started after my trip to the cinema event… where i spied this mask ‘n’ hair combo by mina && immediately snagged it. i saw it, i had to have it, and i was instantly thinking of ways to dress myself up as selena kyle.

so i needed a catsuit. ..obviously. xD and while i own several in varying leather && latex textures, this one from slink was absolutely perfect. while it lacks the homemade stitching that michelle pfeiffer’s costume had in the movie, it more than makes up for it by being *so* fucking sexy. the super low neckline, zipper, and extra shiny latex made it fit what i needed.

but of course… what batman villain is complete without her accessories? i grabbed an outfit from graves (appropriately called the cat) that came with all the necessary bits && bobs — including a mounted whip on the hip, lots of attached pockets, gloves and the li’l kitty collar i’m wearing.

i had to add a teensy bit of *me* back into the costume, so a few piercings from hod (including the feather in my mouth — i thought it was appropriate for a cat, yes?), some claws from candy nail, and a pair of the *hottest* thigh-high boots i’ve seen in a while, by jaimie earst complete the look.

it’s not an exact cosplay, but it’s about as close as i can get! i’m sure no one will complain about my accuracy…

the arcade

so the arcade gatcha event started yesterday, if you’ve not heard…

09.16.2012

…and it is full of such awesome stuffs!

i have a serious problem with gatchas — i will play and play and play until i get what i want (which, more often than not, is the rares inside, ahah). but this time? i really lucked out when it comes to the things i won! yaaaay me and yaaaaaay for my luck~

the pretty peach top by ison, the *adorable* bow’d mouse ears are from auxiliary, the grocery bag packed full of macaron cookies is by bcc && the gorgeous magenta eyes are by insufferable dastard — and all are spoils of my gatcha-ing. and even luckier for me? they all worked awesomely together!

09.16.2012

i paired it all with some *new* mesh jeans, also from auxiliary (and are out @ fameshed) and a pair of peachy-pink metallic heels from g field in the *most* perfect matching shade… and i toted my full grocery bag all around an incredibly adorable sim called itutu, which provided a very fitting background.

even though i got pretty lucky when it comes to my gatcha goodies, i *still* cannot help but wonder if i played just one more try.. if i’d get that rare i’m pining for. hmm…

bunny hood

with rl as busy as it has been lately, it seems the only times i can get a moment to myself to take pics for my bloggity here.. are on the weekends. no me gusta. i’m hoping my free time gets a bit more ample here soon, otherwise i am gonna go a li’l insane methinks.

but at least i always have retail therapy in sl to make it aaaaall better~

06.03.2012

bff vivi && i hit up a few places over the weekend… and we both about *died* over these new mesh hoodies from aura, which are out @ the new round of fameshed. there were so many colors to pick from and each one has an adorable hood complete with long bunny ears attached.. vivienne and i could not say no. she picked a pretty purple shade, while i went with black and lime green, and both are so super cute! looove these!

06.03.2012

vivi decided to pair her hoodie with some denim shorts, from mon tissu, and a hair she also picked up at fameshed by wasabi pills. it’s simple and it’s short, but it’s *so* cute. i like the over-the-eye bangs and the short, whispy ends make this style just adorable.. and of course, my bff is just too cute for words to begin with. ❤❤

06.03.2012

i’m wearing my version of the sweatshirt with a pair of rolled-up jeans from tres blah, some flats from ufo that i snagged @ collabor88, a *gorgeous* updo from exile that’s discounted at the dressing room blue && a *dollarbie* headband from monso that’s offered at the bombi event. there’s lots of goodies at bombi if you haven’t gone.. including an entire wall of lucky boards and gifts/cheapies dotted around in several of the designer’s stalls. plus the build is sooo cute and so are the rest of the items there. definitely worth checkin’ out, if for no other reason than to stalk those lucky boards — the version on the boards of this headband i’m wearing, i will have you!!

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?

05.01.2012

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!

to battle

two sharp swords, a gun in a holster, deadly claws && bright pink hair..

04.20.2012

i’d say i’m ready for battle, what say you? 😉

skimpy outfit *probably* wouldn’t do me much good in a fight, to be fair.. weapons or no weapons. unless all my jiggly bits would maybe help distract my foes. /me strokes her chin……

luckily, sl wars are few && far between for me, so all i have to do is look fierce. i don’t have to actually be fierce. and knowing just how “intimidating” i can be, when in battle.. i’d probably end up throwing my gun at someone rather than shooting it && running in the opposite direction ala jack sparrow.

but enough about that!

04.20.2012

both of my weapons are courtesy of a full outfit i grabbed from random inspiration, after seeing it modeled here by the beautiful nuuna nitely. i *instantly* wanted it because of the boots (they look like black versions of long fall boots!!!), but found lots of the included accessories rather useful in other looks.

so with my weaponry, i decided to be a sexy sort of “battle-ready” by wearing a dress && a pair of latex leggings both from sakide. the dress is out @ private room, while the leggings are part of an outfit set out @ perfect wardrobe — and both are nicely discounted!

a new mesh hair from burley in a *delicious* hot pink, some of my favorite face-makeup tattoos from the very same nuuna who pretty much inspired this entirely ❤, and a few (or, okay, more than a few) piercings from hod completed my look… while the eerily wonderful ambiance of the chouchou sim seemed a fitting backdrop.

i’m not exactly what one might call a seasoned fighter, but pretending like i am can be funtimes! and would you really argue with me about my (lack of) battle prowess, considering how *big* those knives are? …i think not.

stellar

as i’ve said in the past, i usually build the looks i blog around *one* specific item. there’s typically an article of clothing, an accessory, a hairstyle, a tattoo… something that inspires the looks i post. and today, my very gogo dancer look is all centered around some suuuuper sparkly mesh boots that are *new* from stellar.

04.14.2012

over-the-knee, high heeled, zippered && wonderfully shiny boots! \o/

the smallest size fit me *perfectly* without having to adjust my shape, which is always a plus imho, and i love every last one of those hundreds and hundreds of sequins. makes ’em unique && different from the many (many…. many many) pairs of boots i own.

04.14.2012

and it’s almost as if the lovely eboni khan of hucci *knew* that i needed somethin’ short and somethin’ sexy to wear with these boots. this mesh tank dress was sent out freeeeeeee to hucci subscribo members and was totally made to be worn with thigh-high boots. i love the cut, the low neckline, and it’s *just* short enough to be sexy without baring it all. plus the pattern is cute! and i *did* mention it was free, right? ;D

a thick-chained necklace from mandala, fingerless gloves from hermony && my go-to for fishnets from blowpop completed my look. a li’l “edgier” than a 70’s gogo dancer, but i really like it! what’s not to like about sparkly boots && a short dress, amirite?

raw

so the lovely harlow heslop issued a challenge to go au naturale for some in world photography.

…no, i don’t mean in that way! but to use raw, unedited snapshots.. minus all the fancy schmancy photo editing. and since i enjoy blogging challenges, i decided to participate, too~

03.21.2012

now, to be fair, there’s not a whole lot of difference between these raw snaps here (i only cropped ’em, put a border on ’em && spliced ’em together for a collage, that’s it) and the pictures i usually blog. my image editing skills are… pretty much non-existent. i’m def not as talented as some people out there on the feeds, and there is a *lot* of talent out there, but the most i ever do is soften some jaggy lines i get from odd avatar mesh contortions… and maybe brighten things up a bit by messing with color saturation.

that’s…. really it. other than for photos where i want to edit, like a contest entry for example, my usual bloggity photos are not post-processed to death.

needless to say, this challenge was a fairly easy one for me since i don’t do a whole lot of editing to begin with!

03.21.2012

challenge aside… i’ve got two things i’d like to share about the look i put together for today.

one… the new lamb mesh hair is *amazing*. this powder hair color is the most perfect shade of white-white-blonde && i love these uneven, choppy bangs. there were three mesh styles to choose from, but this one was by far my favorite out of the bunch. i am so glad more designers are making mesh hair, it’s really spoiled me in the way it moves and fits.

and two… koketka is having a sale! everything in the store is just *60L* && i picked up this sweater when i visited to check out the sale. i like this chocolatey shade of brown a lot && the long tunic style paired with the bare shoulders made a sweater seem spring-appropriate. plus, it was an excuse to wear these knee-high boots from insanya once more here on my blog, just because they matched so nicely.

so, completely unedited vixxie really doesn’t look that much different than normal bloggity vixxie, hm? but it was a good challenge to take on nonetheless! it really shows how beautiful second life can be~

squeak!

03.18.2012

i’m a day late, but i’m greeeeen! i can pretend st. patrick’s day celebrations go on all weekend (cause i am *sure* someone out there is still celebrating!). and since my family is *mostly* irish, i felt the need to be green. don’t wanna get pinched after all (or maybe i do….) ;P

and luckily for me, these *new* mesh heels from celoe matched the color i was goin’ for. out of all the color choices for these pumps, this light lime green shade was the one that stood out the most to me. it’s bright && cheery and i adore the way these heels seem to fit perfectly with the cuffs on the mon tissu mesh jeans (which i am seriously having a hard time taking off).

03.18.2012

also! let me jog your memory a bit. do you remember kystria aura? she’s the *gorgeous* lady that posed with bff vivi && i in this post not too long ago. she is one of my favorite people in sl, i adore her perdy face ❤ so when she told me she was thinking about making some tattoos and opening a store… i *flipped out*!

the squeak chest tattoo i’m wearing today is from her new store, called kys this (cute name, right?!), and i knew i had to blog it. not only was it made by a dear friend of mine, but it’s also *amusing*. kystria is funny and happy and goofy (a lot like me, eh heh) && her tattoos are the same way. a li’l tongue in cheek and i like that.

plus, i mean, who doesn’t enjoy a good old fashioned boob squeak every now and again.. i certainly do!

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. ❤
