schoolgirls

sometimes, halloween is about… indulgences. the holiday gives you free reign to dress up as whatever you like. a vampire, a ghost, a zombie…. anything that tickles your fancy.

so today, it’s actually my best friend who inspired these costumes. bff vivi is *all* about the anime, so when we found a few key accessories on the marketplace..

10.18.2012

…i knew i’d have to indulge her, just a li’l bit.

these mesh heads from utilizator are all kinds of awesome — i’m wearing the regular female version but vivienne is wearing the *chibi* style (and is so cute i could scream x3) — and are chalk full of options. there are several facial expressions, including different mouth and eyebrow positions, as well as different eye styles and colors… and each come in three skin tones, with matching skins and head pieces, for tons of customization.

these would be fantastic for cosplay in sl — emulating a favorite character from an anime or manga series would be a breeze with these head pieces — but they also work for making up your own types of characters like vivi && i have done.

10.18.2012

she and i decided to dress as close as we could get to *anime schoolgirls*, with her outfit coming from collabor88 by r2. when the collection rolled over at the beginning of the month && we saw these sailor suits out… vivienne and i both knew we had to do something with them for halloween. luckily for us, rei2 aya made some *fantastic* mesh pieces that were perfect for the looks we were going for and vivi looks so freakin’ cute in this outfit.

10.18.2012

mine, on the other hand, comes from monso… and i *love* it. the version i grabbed comes with a bunch of color options for every single part of the outfit — from the trim on the jacket to different styles and colors for the tie at the neck — and is wonderfully constructed. it was absolutely perfect for a schoolgirl look && i spent much longer than i’d care to admit, just pushing buttons on the HUD to see all the color combinations.

while vivi went with a lunchbox (from love soul), i decided to wear a backpack.. one i’ve had from pink fuel for a very long time now. i’m glad i had it, it really came in handy for adding just that li’l extra touch to my costume, and i mean.. it’s pink fuel. and it’s a bunny. you cannot go wrong!

i always tend to lean on the scarier side of halloween, but that doesn’t mean every costume has to be freaky ‘n’ blood-soaked. being super adorable works just as well, too!

10.18.2012

ps. these last four pics were taken in a photo booth on the love soul sim… while they turned out adorable, i’ve no idea what the text says across the top of each panel (i just kinda mashed buttons on the dialog box until the backdrop was cute enough). here’s hoping it’s appropriate!

class act

it is absolutely beautiful outside today — warm and sunny and bright with just the slightest hint of a breeze. and since it is so gorgeous and springy in my rl, i decided to recreate the lovely springtime feeling while snappin’ bloggity pics in my sl as well~

04.04.2012

the sea salts sim was a *perfect* backdrop.. the entire build is all kinds of wonderful. i took several snaps of just the landscape, which i’ll add in at the end of the post, because it was so nicely done. i had a lot of fun wandering through the paths && patches of grass and flowers… and of course, i had fun posing myself, too, amidst all of it while trying to show off my look for today.

04.04.2012

i dressed all around these *mesh* pants from aura.. which, to be fair, i’m a *little* slow on grabbing for myself. but when bff vivi and i visted the fashionably late sale the other day && i saw these pants were there.. *and* they were marked half off? i had no excuse not to pick up a pair! the fit on these are great — low-cut, but not enough that my entire booty is hangin’ out, with some retro flared legs && lots of tweed patterns to choose from. different lengths are also included, depending on whether you decide to wear flats or heels with ’em, and the shape as a whole was just… flattering.

so i added one of the *new* mesh tanks from cold logic, a super high && super sexy ponytail from ploom, some heels i picked up ages ago from deco (i *think* they were a fifty linden friday offering back then.. here’s hopin’ they are still available!), and a few nerdy accessories… y’know… since the pants are called *class act* and all. i snagged these glasses from december (and truth be told, i love the way i look in glasses :X i am always, always tempted to make reading glasses be more of a *staple* in my virtual wardrobe, the way piercings && tattoos are) and a space invaders(!!!) inspired necklace from love always. this necklace, honestly, was *slove* at first sight — not only is it color-change, but the design… oh it feeds that inner geek inside me. love it!

pretty sim, a casual look, && some *beautiful* weather in my first life as well as my second… today was a good day for me! i hope everyone else’s mid-week is going just as smoothly! ❤❤

you go, glen coco~

one of my favorite lines from a movie… inspired a shirt that i’ve had, sitting in my inventory, for god knows how long…

03.28.2012

…and i rediscovered it today && *had* to blog it.

live every day like you’re glen coco… a mantra everyone should practice. truer words have never been spoken. ;p

03.28.2012

i’m wearing the *amazing* tee with a skirt i picked up for grenade free wednesday from crash republic (if you’re like me && can never have too many denim minis, this one is nice for the price!), some *new* knee-high socks from onyx wear (that are out @ fashionably late), some awesome new earrings from amorous which is still having that *sale!*, and a punk’d out long hair from raw house. i lovelove the shorter, spikier side paired with longer waves — and from the name, i’m fairly certain it was inspired by this particular sonny.

add a very fitting nom (considering i’ve been listening to this song on repeat ever since a friend linked me to it), some horns, some *new* ink from vestigium && i do believe… i’ve successfully rocked glen coco out~

you go, glen coco… and none for gretchen weiners, bye!

do a li’l old school jammin’with me. i can’t believe how long ago that was ( makes me feel *so* old that i saw him live when that album came out! D; ), but i still love his crazy ass. ♥♥

not that marilyn manson has much to do with my look xD but i was feelin’ nostalgic today.

anyhoozles, onto the look~

6.14.2011

i blogged some tattoo layer makeup from silenced the other day because of their closing sale. lots of goodies.. clothes, hair, skins.. all marked *waaaay* down. it’s always sad to see a SL store close, but stocking up on some sweet stuff for a low price is always appreciated. my hot pink jeans are from said sale, which are totally my favorite shade of pink, and the waist is perfect. not so low cut that my entire booty hangs out (which gets .. tiresome after a while ;/), but not yanked up to passed my belly button. it’s a good medium && the color makes these awesome imo.

the adorable ears i’m wearing are from twee. told ya i’d go back for ’em~ ;p they remind me *so much* of chobits && they feed my kawaii~~~! side — and yes, i have one, thank you very much. i like the goth, the punk, the grunge, the piercings && ink just as much, but sometimes… there’s this *squee!* girlishness that comes out and i just can’t help it. which is why i tend to mix in a li’l bit o’ cute every once in a while && these ears are just that! a bit o’ cute.

6.14.2011

speaking of cute.. my choices in jewelry are absolutely adorable, too. the cuppycake necklace i’m wearing is from burroughs && even comes complete with color-change everything. the cupcake cup, the stones making up the frosting, the metal.. all of it is customizable. that’s probably my favorite thing about burroughs jewelry — it’s wonderfully made && i coulda made myself a hot pink and black cupcake to be all matchy matchy if i really wanted to.

the charm-filled bracelet i’ve got on is from primalot — another jewelry brand where almost everything is customizable. the beads, the flowers, the metal.. all of it is color change, too. i am in love with the largest charm && the big stone in the middle of it. the bracelet looks *so* vintage && yet still modern. and the fact that i can make it in any color under the sun (just about!) gives it a permanent place in my massive folder of jewelry.

plus, how *amaaaa~aaazing* are those boots?! i picked ’em up from deco this past 50L friday && i’ve been dying to find a look to blog ’em with. big combat boots like these, i’ve probably got at least a half dozen pairs.. but these are all strapped && so nicely textured. i am kickin’ myself for not getting the pink pair offered with these black ones, but i may have to go search for them on my own. black combat boots are sexy, but pink ones?! might as well call them vixxie’s ultimate favorite boots evar.

playing favorites

so. when i go to post a look here on my blog, i am completely 100% satisfied with it. it is, at the moment, my favorite for the day. i never blog anything i don’t like (cause… that would be a little counter-productive) and what you see here is chalk full of things i think are awesome.

however! there are some looks that, to me, stand out more than others. and there are always posts that appeal to me more than the rest, even if i like everything i’ve put up here. but i gotta say… out of all 65(!!!) entries i’ve written so far, the look i have for today is my absolute favorite.

8.01.2010

to me, i look like a mix between pink (and i love her times a hundred <3) and a very dapper dandy, with a little elf && vixxie thrown in. and i love it *so much*, i couldn’t wait any longer to post this up.

the look all started with the cane i picked up for 50L friday from deco. it was sort of an impulse buy. like, it’s only 50L, why not? but when i tried it on? i think i literally squealed. it comes with a built in AO so you literally walk with the cane. the run anim is too cute as well, running and holding it across your chest. plus, it’s got a goddamn golden duck head to hold! srsly, it’s amazing.

so i worked from the cane on up, picking out clothing an accessories that sorta matched the “theme”. silken pants from leezu worked in a lovely pastel shade, the ruffled tank (that i tooootally said in a blog post like.. 2 months ago that i’d be back to get and aha! i finally did!) from surf couture added some frills at the chest && gartered socks from pig worn with the fabulous oxford shoes from coco completed what i was going for in such lovely ways.

8.01.2010

i really packed on the accessories for this look, too. as i said yesterday, i visited sanu *just* for the amazing monocle (but ended up buying, like, a ton of shit.. gotta love when that happens). the detail on on the monocle is beyond intricate, it boggles my mind how someone can pack so much realism into such a tiny piece. but it’s awesome && it fits and was exactly what i was looking for.

then, what’s a proper gentleman haha without a pocket watch? mine today is from skream and while the pants i’ve got on don’t.. have… a visible pocket, in my head it is dangling from the belt. because it was far too cute not to wear. okay? >:O

my tattoo from endless pain was the *perfect* addition, simply because of the pretty pastel colors worked through the sleeves. teeny little top hat, that i bought from dilly dolls also was a needed accessory, because.. well.. it only seemed fitting. plus it’s tiny and adorable and at a gravity-defying tilt. i loves it.

this look may be totally outside of my norm, but if i haven’t said it enough already… i absolutely adore the way it looks. and i also might have spent an entire hour just walking back and forth in front of my house, because the walk anim included with the cane amuses me way too much. 😀
