playboy

halloween is the one night a year when girls can dress like a total slut and no other girls can say anything about it.

so, apparently i like quoting mean girls… but! i figured it was a fitting quote, considering the costumes bff vivi && i are wearing in my post for today..

10.25.2012

i’ve done creepy, i’ve done cute, i’ve done character cosplay…. time for somethin’ simply sexy for halloween! and there is little that’s sexier than two playboy bunnies.

all we need is a nice tray of martinis to serve..

aaaaanyway! the key to these looks are these mesh bodysuits from hucci. we both picked these up @ collabor88 several rounds ago, but thankfully these sets are still available at the hucci mainstore. vivienne is wearing the entire set here — including the cuffs, collar, ears && tail — and these are *perfect* for a halloween costume all in one.

10.25.2012

i accessorized my look with an rabbit ear ‘n’ tail set i picked up from o.m.e.n. (because i was trying to better match my ears/tail to my hair color.. is that weird?), which includes several sets of these *adorable* bunny ears and tails in a bunch of color choices. these sets are so cute, as is the kitsune set i wore here, and i love that the ears come in straight-up versions as well as the one-ear-bent variation i’m wearing here~

add in some super high heels from n-core, bright red lipstick (mine from pink fuel, vivi’s from glam affair) && a cute stage set that i picked up by focus poses… and you’ve got two very sexy (just in my humble opinion ;P) playboy bunnies. now who wants a cocktail?

dark side

welcome to my dark side…

10.21.2012

…as if you’ve not seen it already. ;P

there’s *new* stuffs from some of my favorite brands && all of it is so perfect for halloween. or, y’know, everyday-wear if you’re me.

the skull-face tattoo && the multi-ring ear piercing i’m wearing above are new as a collab by nuuna’s and haus of darcy… and i cannot tell you how hard i fell for both. the piercing is partially mesh — the long spiked piece in my earlobe is mesh and awesome — and includes the facial tattoo in varying degrees of opacity for both men and women.

it’s available @ the fair event, the collection just rolled over to some really great new goodies, and if you’re anything like me.. you *need* this set. it is to die for (haw, no pun intended).

now, the skin i’m wearing underneath nuuna’s beautiful skull-face…

10.21.2012

…is just one of *many* released from glam affair. this appropriately named dark side collection features some beautiful makeups on a range of skins from dark and mysterious to light and haunting. and they are absolutely gorgeous.

10.21.2012

there’s two of glam affair’s most recent faces here — both ginny and roza. and each one is stunning. i could not pick a favorite out of these, each one is uniquely different. i love the full, dark red lips on one of the super pale skins, i love the stitched mouth on the darker gray skin, i love the two with bright pink blush dusted across the cheeks and eyes…

10.21.2012

these are wonderful for halloween looks (which you already know i’m a fan of!), but could just as easily work for a fantasy avatar.. or something decidedly goth. these sorts of skins are a big part of the reason why i’m such a fan of glam affair — aida ewing does soft and pretty so well, but also indulges the opposite side of the spectrum quite often. i adore the skins.

and when these skins are paired with aydan darcy‘s wonderful piercings && nuuna nitely‘s amazing makeup… it is a trifecta of fan-fucking-tastic.

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!

don’t mind me, i’m just lounging around today..

10.13.2012

suppose i needed to recover from the nekkidness of yesterday. ;P

so i slipped into a comfy (and still pretty!) tank top from red mint && these cozy mesh socks from intrigue co (out @ collabor88) that are totally adorbs and called it a day.

10.13.2012

my hair for today is actually a *freebie*(!!) from magika — two colors of this faint hairstyle, the orange-dipped style i’m wearing here && another tipped in red, are available to subscribo members free for halloween! this straight bang’d style, complete with long curly q strands falling over the shoulders, is one of my favorite releases to date from magika.. so i may have squee’d a li’l when i saw these out for the grabbing.

and because i cannot resist accessorizing even a little bit, i tried on this *new* necklace from amorous and totally fell in love… this orange color is gorgeous, all the metal bits ‘n’ pieces are color change (ranging from dark silver to a deep bronze to a shiny black), and all the details on this piece are just perfection.

i may be recovering from a bout of outfit block, and still not quite fully covered here, but at least i’m not subjecting everyone to my bare boobies again! bwahahah~

duality

so, the other day when i blogged two of the pxl gatcha skins with bff vivi… and i mentioned at the very end how i had a second skin i was working on a look for?

10.09.2012

..tada!

this skin is labeled as demon… but this half-beauty, half-beast sort of face *immediately* made me think of a certain villain from gotham city. and thus, this look was born.

and, i have to say — it has been a long long time since i was *this* inspired by a set of skins. they are so creative, and because of that, it was easy to be creative myself when dressing to match them. i am *so* in love with this skin, honestly, that i about squeeeeeeee‘d when the gatcha gods smiled upon me and i got it on my second try.

10.09.2012

of course, i couldn’t simply dress in a half-and-half suit and call it a day. i mean, certainly that’d be fitting for the character i’m trying to emulate and everything… but i had to girly it up just a li’l bit. a lacy bodysuit from sakide, knee-high boots in black ‘n’ white from gos, half and half stockings from izzie’s and this perfect mesh jacket from gizza round out the look in tailored, monochrome loveliness. it’s sexy and structured and just a little bit naughty… and i totally love it.

but you be the judge! the skin gave me that extra nudge to go for it, but here was my original inspiration..

so how did i do? am i two face enough? 😉

show a little leg

09.27.2012

i’ve been doing a lot of editing of things in my sl lately… my inventory has been the main thing i’ve worked on (and *still* am working on! it is a never-ending process, i’m tellin’ you!), but i’ve been giving my personal shape a li’l bit of a tweak here and there recently as well.

my shape, over the years, has evolved a lot.. but i rarely tweak it for things most people tend to. i rarely, if ever, make changes to my shape for skins — if it doesn’t look good on my shape as-is, then i just don’t buy it. i like being “recognizable” (har har) in different skins, even if the appearance of my face can vary with one skin or another.. then at least the basic structure underneath is the same as always. i change things about my shape when i feel i need or want to && while this happens rarely, there are some significant changes to my current shape when compared to.. say.. the shape i wore when i first started blogging.

but the biggest change i’ve made as of late is to… my legs. they’re a little longer now, a little less muscled, and i personally think *ahem* that they look fantastic.

so i’m showin’ ’em off. ;p

09.27.2012

in doing so, i put on something super short && paired it with some *new* sexy heels… because nothing looks better with a nice set of gams than a high heel, amirite?

the dress is from miel and i actually snagged it on a fifty linden friday a couple weeks ago. and, again, as things tend to do when my inventory is a mess… this dress got lost in the fray of folders until now. i *adore* this dolphin-print and the fact that it’s not only color-change, but the tube top underneath && the dress are color-change separately. made for some fun color combos while i was playing around with it!

and the shoes…

09.27.2012

they are mesh, they are glorious && they are new from onyx wear. there are so many choices for color — did you see that hot pink in the first pic? love it! — but each pair of heels comes with a ton of options. the heel, sole and insole are all texture-change and there’s quite a selection for nail colors as well.. one of my favorites being a panda manicure that is too cute for words. they were really easy to tint, too, && look *awesome* on.

new shoes, new dress… and some new legs, too? only in second life…

shades of gray

not *fifty*, but just a few. ;P

09.23.2012

so! bff vivi && i raced to g field the other day when we saw these new beth ankle booties released. and we both, once we stopped drooling all over the demos, snagged ’em in gray and black. we could not resist playin’ dress up with them and thus… these looks were born.

these boots are *so* great for fall — which the weather for me in my rl is lookin’ more and more like autumn — and they’re designed to perfection. the laces, metal && soles are all color-change no matter which color of boot you pick up.. and the overall shape and texturing on these is just wonderful.

09.23.2012

the booties were also released with a set of floral-patterned tights (which are set out @ the ridiculously affordable price of just *50L* per color!) which vivienne is wearing here in the black-and-gray combo. and this look she put together here, with a longer tunic (from villena) and leggings and boots all works together in a trendy, but casual outfit. comfy, but still cute!

09.23.2012

i decided to take the boots in a different direction — dressing them “up” a little bit with lots o’ layers. a short-sleeved lace cami (from sn@tch) underneath a cropped mesh top i grabbed from ison… and i, too, am wearin’ tights (from izzie’s) with my shorter pencil-style skirt from mon tissu.

and, because we’re best friends && it’s just what we do, we’re both wearing pink and purple versions of the necklaces by maxi gossamer from the arcade gatcha event. mine was actually a gift from vivi (making it even more special, d’aww ❤) and provided not only a nice pop of color amidst all the black and gray, but also gives a best friends necklace effect.

and yes, you’re all welcome to “aawww~!” with me. ;D

contemplation

funny, isn’t it, how a single pair of boots can inspire an entire look?

09.17.2012

suppose it’s logical enough, considering how insanely sexy said boots (from grollwerk) are. :Q__

and it is not the first time this has happened for me in sl…. quite often, i find myself going oooomgah those BOOTS and immediately envisioning all the ways i’d wear them. it happened with the slink thigh high mesh boots… with the skullhand-heel boots i grabbed ages ago from pixel fashion… several of the boots i own from neurolabs… *any* of the knee-high or ankle boots i’ve picked up from gos… perhaps i have a hidden (or not so hidden) fetish for boots, but they certainly are a weakness for me.

09.17.2012

and because of these boots, it gave me yet another excuse to indulge my inner sci-fi geek. i’ve been finding more && more lately that i *love* these sorts of cybernetic fantasy looks… and it is a style i gave a chance really by accident. perhaps i like the excuse to wear skin tight ‘n’ shiny latex, perhaps it is how easy it is to be *out there* without looking out of place, perhaps it’s how fantastically detailed the builds i’ve seen that fit this type of look, or perhaps it is an aesthetic i wasn’t even aware i enjoyed but now am fully familiar with how much i love it. no matter what the reason, i’ve been enjoying slipping into something slinky and glossy every now && again…

…especially when i can get heel-less knee-high boots like these to complete the look. :3

mon tissu

so when i saw mon tissu was having a contest for bloggers, i could not resist throwing my hat into the ring…

Mon Tissu Blogger Search Entry - Vixxie Vultee

mon tissu is, hands down, one of my favorite brands on the grid. i wear their pieces in world && here on my blog *constantly* (i mean, just look right here!) because i adore this brand so much. everything released always has wonderful construction, lovely textures, and an innate style to them that make it so easy to put together a definitive *look*.

mixing && matching is one of my favorite things to do — take a piece from here, another piece from somewhere else, an accessory from yet another place and so on — and items from mon tissu have become a staple of mine in my virtual wardrobe for this. there are pieces i always search for in my inventory, clothing that i seem to fall back on because i like the fit or i like the look of it, and mon tissu’s releases rank right up there in my most searched for items.

Mon Tissu Blogger Search Entry - Vixxie Vultee

the look i put together for these pictures is simple and casual — something i think mon tissu does amazingly well. denim is, by far, one of the easiest things to wear in world && these shorts (as well as the loulou jeans and the newer mesh nora jeans) are my absolute favorites. and when paired with a cute tank, a jean jacket && a scarf (in a peach shade that mon tissu does *so* well), the look i have here is casual but cute… and works great for that *in between* weather right now where it’s not quite summer anymore and still not quite autumn, either.

having a wardrobe of well-made, cute, *simple* pieces makes changing outfits and making new ones that much easier… and some of the nicest i own are from mon tissu. i couldn’t resist at least taking the time to blather on about one of my favorite brands, beyond just entering the contest, so if you’ve not checked them out (and why the hell not?!).. then i honestly can recommend you do so! i’ve never been disappointed by anything i’ve purchased from mon tissu (and, actually, the contrary is quite true — every release gets better and better and makes me more excited each time) and this look here shows that whether it’s prim or mesh, mon tissu does it *very* very well~
