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? 😉

shake it

09.13.2012

my very good friend, kystria aura, has been releasing lots’a new tattoos through her store, kys this… and the one i’m showing here is probably one of my favorites thus far. shake it like an etch-a-sketch… don’t mind if i do. ;P

and lucky for me, i had the perfect top to wear *just* to show off the lower-tummy tatt~

sakide has released some basic mesh tanks in a bunch of colors… and i am always looking for tank tops. i firmly believe you can *never* have too many basics, especially when it comes to tanks — they are so easy to wear && mix ‘n’ match with. when i don’t know what to put on? I search for a tank top and these from sakide are super cute!

aaaaand these tops give you options, too. check it out:

09.13.2012

each color has two ways to wear it. the shorter, cropped style that shows off the stomach && a longer, more ruffled style (achieved with a second mesh add-on) as shown in the middle up there for some extra coverage.

i’m only showin’ off three colors here, but there are lots of other colors to pick from. basics *never* go out of style and if you’ve got some funny, quirky, sexy new tummy ink to show off.. these tops work out perfectly~

unmentionables

there’s not a whole lot i can say here, other than…

09.11.2012

allarik && me are in our underpants. i’m in my unmentionables to show off new awesome stuffs, but he’s just eye candy (you’re welcome). and i suppose, this time, the snapshot speaks louder than my words ever could, hm? ;p

right! so i’ve been needing an excuse to get in touch with my sexy side and the latest mesh releases from onyx wear && red mint helped me do just that. lingerie is the thing i probably own the least of in my virtual closet, but pretty underthings like this make me *totally* happy to change that.

i honestly thought that bras ‘n’ panties were probably the one thing i would not like (or need) in mesh — clothing layers seemed to do the job fairly well. but that was *before* i tried them and these sets from onyx wear are so sexy it hurts. little details, like lace trims and teeny bows, when combined with how well they fit and how *realistic* it looks on… they are just delicious and i’m afraid the few pieces of clothing layer lingerie i do own won’t be getting much use anymore.

09.11.2012

there are lots of patterns to choose from (i think my personal fave out of the bunch is the candy rainbow set in the upper left pic, so cute!) and are def worth checking out. i love that the bra and panties are separate mesh pieces, which made fitting a breeze for me since i could mix-and-match sizes. plus *nothing* is sexier than a bra you can cam all around. …i’m just sayin’.

and of course, the corset i’m wearing… also new && also mesh, from red mint. i am a *sucker* for corsets, i absolutely love them. and with mesh, my love for them has only grown leaps and bounds. the one i’m wearing here comes with the collar attached as well as a version without the collar included… and again, lots of choice when it comes to color and pattern (including tartan! the tartan corsets are aaaaaaaawesome, too~).

you can read more about the corset here && the underwear here if you’re interested in seeing *all* the colors and styles available. and go get in touch with your sexy side too… ’cause it’s fun.

09.11.2012

…lots of fun. 😉

double dose

/me gently wipes the cobwebs away

ohay! long time, no bloggity, hmm?

yeah, it’s been a really long while since i last posted… things just got *way* hectic for me in my rl. shit happens from time to time && i am def not immune to it. buuuuu~uuut, i did have some time this week to catch up on things in sl, so i thought i’d finally get off my lazy ass and put together a blog post!

and it’s not just me in this post, oh no. i’ve got two looks for you from myself and one of those includes bff vivi.. i thought it was a fitting way to maybe get back into the swing of blogging~

first…

06.05.2012

..a look i put together long before i took my hiatus. this makes me a very, very bad blogger && for that i apologize! i uploaded the pics of this look to flickr months and months ago… and then never put a post together for it. so here it is, finally!

06.05.2012

polar bear hoodie, shark tee, and some bright hot pink. do you love it as much as i do? ’cause i gotta say, i love this look lots. i grabbed the tee from retro when i discovered them on a hunt aaaages ago. these tees were cute (each one was a different color w/ different animal motifs) and nicely textured… and sometimes i just cannot resist the cute. yes, this shark is cute.. don’t try to tell him otherwise~

the hood is mesh && i grabbed it from nacon’s on the marketplace. while i don’t recommend wearing a fuzzy hood and scarf in the middle of summer, it’s sl.. so i can do what i want! ;P it worked for the cutesy sort of look i was goin’ for and, as i said.. cannot resist the cute sometimes. i like the dark, grungy, and evil just as much as the next girl but there’s that part of me the just cannot say no to something with teddy bear ears. don’t judge me.

and for a more “recent” look, i dragged bff vivi in with me to pose..

08.11.2012

you never really know how much you miss out on when you’re away from sl. sure, i knew designers and sales and events would be goin’ on without me.. but i didn’t realize just how much there would be for me to catch up on! @_@ it was only a couple of months && i feel like i’ve missed out on yeeeeeears of awesome goodies.

so she ‘n’ i hit up a few of our favorite stores, browsed several of the events going on, and tried our best not to be overwhelmed.

08.11.2012

vivi built her cute && casual look all around this mesh tee she picked up @ collabor88, from tres blah. it’s perfectly tucked into her jeans and looks like a slouchy v-neck she’d steal from her boyfriend (if he let her into his closet, that is..). she looks comfy and yet still put together~

she’s also wearing a pair of flared jeans from maitreya, some fiiierce leopard heels (that were a freebie group gift!) from n-core, and a super cute owl necklace that’s also from collabor88 by maxi gossamer~

08.11.2012

my look also centers around somethin’ i grabbed at collabor88, this time from auxiliary. this sugar skull design won me over completely, but all of the designs were awesome enough to pick up.. especially at the nicely discounted price of a mere 88L.

i paired the tank with some mesh shorts i picked up from mon tissu && a pair of gorgeous sandals from celoe — both of which are in nice, neutral shades. the shorts have a subtle pinstripe, making them more visually interesting than a simple pair of white denim shorts, and the shoes….. oh there are no words for these shoes other than love. the textures are realistic and delicious, tinting was a breeze && i instantly fell in love with this taupe shade. if only i had a pair of these irl, siiigh~

plus! the prop && poses vivi and i are using here, from glitterati, are on *sale* right now. everything is discounted to 100L and i went ‘n scooped up a whole bunch of things i’ve had my eye on, this prop included. i’m always on the lookout for new props and new poses, especially ones that are unique, and i’ve always liked this hallway prop. i’m glad i was able to grab it for an amazing deal!

sooo, three looks… and *maybe* a return to blogging for vixxie? we’ll have to see how rl treats me, but i’m hoping i’ll be able to get back into it! i miss my blog (and i miss those of you that read it ❤ honestly!) and i hate feeling like i’m out of the loop. so much new stuff to grab! @___@

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…..

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!

return

sooooooooooooo~

it’s been a couple days, huh? my bad! the bff && i have been sucked in to minecraft as of late.. we’ve been playing it pretty much in every available free second we’ve both had in the last few days. killin’ creepers, tamin’ ocelots, buildin’ epic home bases… y’know. all that good minecraft-y stuffs!

but i took a break from my blocky minecraftian self, just for ya’ll~ ;p i didn’t want to get even more behind on bloggity stuffs, because lemme tell ya.. there’s always lots to blog, so if i don’t keep up with it? i get behind *so* fast && end up with a back log of things i wanna show off. and that’s never fun!

so, enough about minecraft && on with the look!

03.07.2012

lots of skin! \o/

this look is an combination of a whole bunch’a goodies… some older, some newer. it’s fun to go through my inventory (what i have left of it, bahah) && pick out bits and pieces i’ve not worn in a while… and then try to work them into a more recent look. so along with the new mesh gos boots, the new ripped up stockings and cybernetic ink from onyx wear && the new super short skirt from red mint.. i also have on some older gloves from plastik, a gun from breach that’s so fun to wear (and i do wear it often, but just as an accessory! ;)), && a skin from curio that i’ve loved hardcore since i picked it up last summer.

03.07.2012

top that off with a recent release from truth that’s so big and so windblown, some of my favorite horns from rue && my absolute favorite for piercings with hod.. and i’m pretty proud with how this look turned out!

but i’ve got some wheat waiting to harvest, some ore to mine, and some pigs to saddle.. so i’m off for a li’l more minecraft adventuring. don’t mind me if my posts are a bit slow for a while, but i’ll split my time between sl and minecraft as best i can. which is *such* hard work, mmmhmmm~

lil bit boho

long, to-the-floor skirts aren’t *typically* my thing. i tend to like my skirts on the shorter side of the spectrum. short enough to show some leg, but not so short to show absolutely everything (if you catch my drift, ahem). but of course, tastes can change.. and in trying out something i didn’t think i’d like at first, i actually ended up falling in loooove~

02.21.2012

it’s a wonder how mesh can change your opinion on a garment, hmm? ;p

the skirt i’m wearing is indeed mesh && it’s from sakide.. and i am so in love. i really like the shape of the skirt, the length of it (cause it’s not all the way down to the floor, it hits just above the ankle!), and how nicely it moves. it comes in a bunch of colors if black isn’t your first choice (the light pink version of this skirt is *so* cute!) and could totally work for a more dressed up sort of look, as well as a bit more casual like i’ve styled it here.

02.21.2012

the top i’ve got on… which is out @ collabro88 from kyoot, i thought fit *perfectly* with the look i was going for. it’s cropped, it’s pretty, and i love the cut-out details on the collar. a full length top might have been too much… a li’l too covered up. but the shorter hem on the top actually shows some skin && makes the skirt look very.. boho to me. boho in all black, of course, but still lovely && feminine all the same!

a wide belt, from nyte ‘n’ day, some bronze && black accessories from league and amorous, a *gorgeous* wavy hair style that was out for stumblebum last round (that i totally derped on and forgot to blog while it was on sale… facepalm) from truth && some ankle boots from maitreya complete the look. kinda simple, but i really like the way it turned out! and i’m really, really glad i gave this skirt a chance. pieces you didn’t think you’d like originally can surprise you sometimes, in very.. very good ways!

i love the dirty things you do
i have control of you

i’m also a day late to start the challenge, so i’m not sure if i’ll be able to keep up with twelve eleven whole days of lingerie… but it certainly was fun for this post! and thankfully, kyoot released some super sexy bras ‘n’ panties for stumblebum.. which were perfectly fitting for a post of undies~

02.03.2012
click to see it larger @ flickr!

other than the lingerie, i gotta say.. i’m not wearin’ much else! ahaha~ ;p but i decided to accessorize with some goodies from virtual insanity — both my ring && my nails are v/i. the kitteh ring matched *so* nicely, and the nails… really… it’s not often that i don’t wear nails (either prim or glove layer manicures!), but the ones from virtual insanity are some of my favorites. they’re always color-change, and with a *bunch* of textures to choose from on top of it, and they actually have some thickness to them to make them look more realistic. some of the prim nails i own are… thin, a li’l flat, but these are shaped more like actual fingernails. and they’re a nice length, too! not too short && not claw length either.

we’ll see if i can actually keep up with the undies until vday, i’d like to but lingerie is something i definitely own the least of. i suppose that gives me an excuse to do some underoo shopping though, eh? >D
