lazy

so! i’ve showed off my new bedroom already && today, i’m posing in part of my living room…

11.12.2012

bff vivi and i have been putting a few last finishing touches on our new home.. y’know, the little details that make things look more “lived in”. and since our living room is so huge (ie, there’s enough room for a full living room set while *still* leaving half the room undecorated), she and i decided to put down a cute dining room set… even though we don’t have a kitchen. ;P only in sl!

and so my look for today is very appropriate for lounging around my house, something comfy but still cute.. while i rez and re-rez candles and books and paintings and picture frames and flower pots.

11.12.2012

this cute cream-colored mesh top i’m wearing is *new* from sakide. there’s lots of new releases at sakide, all of which are awesome separates. ponchos(!), jeans, stockings, boots.. but these v-neck tees were probably my favorites out of the bunch. they are great for layering, which is something i *love* to do in autumn, but still season-appropriate enough on their own to totally work for fall. and i liked this khaki color for how versatile it is to work with!

i know it’s kiiinda hard to see, but check out my necklace! it’s *adorable* && is out @ collabor88 from intrigue co. little potted cactus plants, each dotted with small flowers.. how cute is that!? the set comes with a matching ring (that i *am* wearing here, even if i’m a derp and didn’t photograph it properly :/) and earrings, where each choice has different colored flower accents. so fun && so *cute*, i love accessories like these!

today was kind of a lazy day, i mean.. i didn’t even bother putting on shoes! but i still like this look for how real it is. i wouldn’t be moving furniture around in my rl in a skirt, heels and flowy top.. so i don’t do it in my sl, either~

hi, have you seen my awesome chair?

11.02.2012

my chair has horns and a raven. my chair > your chair.

i have this chair because i wanted something funky to pose with for my look for today. there really was no *need* for a chair, but i found this one at handverk (because maybe.. just maybe.. i was there eying up a few more pairs of heels, y’know, to go with my sweet pink penis pumps) and i was compelled to buy it. i mean, it has horns(!) and a raven(!!).. what more needs to be said?

so to not detract from the awesomeness of this chair, i decided to dress understated and demure…….. with gray skin, purple-tipped ears, red eyes and some crazy eye makeup. ..*coughs*

anyway! my look for today is a combination of a few things i wanted to show off, so let me touch on ’em here before i get too sarcastic. these huge platform’d boots i’m wearing are from sakide and if you act *fast*, they might still be available to grab! they were a 100L special for halloween and, as i’m sure you’re aware, halloween is over… but these boots are still great for beyond just halloween. they’re textured with spider webs and such, but it’s subtle and you really have to look close to see the pattern… which means these *won’t* be sitting in the bottom of my inventory until next october. they’re thigh-high and *mesh* and i really, really liked these. go scope out sakide if you’d like them, i hope they’re still out!

11.02.2012

this gorgeous collar && earring set i’m wearing here by amorous is out @ the tomorrow today charity event. if you’d like more information on the event, please click and read through the blog posts by matchbook monday. there are lots of designers set up at the event and, in turn, lots of goodies to snag in the hopes of helping matchbook raise money. matchbook monday is one of my own personal favorites when it comes to jewelry, but not *only* because her designs are flawless. she is a really sweet person — the few times i’ve had the pleasure of talking to her, she’s been *nothing* but kind and friendly and incredibly generous — and i honestly hope this event goes well for her. plus, you’re getting some awesome items in return (if you’re a hair junkie like i am, make sure you poke your head into the truth && wasabi pills stalls!), so if you’re inclined… visit the event and browse around~

another event with new stuffs is fameshed… and the new collection is *amazing*. the first thing i had my eye on was this hairstyle i’m wearing here from exile. this updo looked, to me, almost like a messy-bun-mohawk && i seriously fell in love. the style is perfection, it is one of my absolute favorites to date from exile, and i love that it worked so well not only with the jewelry i’m wearing…

…but also with these *ears*, which are a collab between ni.ju and trap. they are pierced a thousand ways && are completely customizable — not only does each ear set come with a hud for recoloring everything (the skintone, tips, piercings.. even the highlight and shadow are color-change), but they’re *also* fully mod which allowed me to recolor a few of the piercings by themselves. they were a breeze to tint, full of such wonderful detail, and really worth picking up!

witch

it’s getting *clooooooser*! only *two* more days until halloween.. are you excited as i am!?

the costume look i’ve got for today is another one for halloween on a budget. i already did one costume on the cheap && today, i’ve got a second one~

10.29.2012

i know it’s already made rounds on the feeds, but i could *not* resist blogging this dress from g field myself. it’s *free* and so adorable.. and perfectly halloween. and i immediately saw it as a very appropriate dress for a witch to wear.

so i added in some more free accessories.. like the orange ‘n’ black nails + bracelet combo i’m wearing here is a *group gift* for candy nail group members. you know i love my prim nails && the gifts from candy nail are always lovely, so i was excited to see these out for the taking. the set comes with a pair of earrings as well, which i’m not wearing here, but it all works well for adding in some extra halloween colors into a look.

10.29.2012

the li’l one-tooth’d pumpkin i’m hugging above, as well as the bats i had swirling all around me (which look *amazing* but are so hard to photograph! but they’re there, i promise! eh heh) are both vip group gifts from epic. if you’re in need of some more halloween goodies, the epic group is *so* worth the price of admission. jade winthorpe is always generous to her groupies && there are lots of halloween-themed gifts for group members… currently, there’s a pumpkin backpack, the pumpkin i’m hugging here, the animated bats (which you’ll just have to go and grab to see for yourself, my pics don’t really do ’em justice), a mesh dress in three different designs and a pair of faun hooves that are *all* free to group members.

the spider pendant necklace i’ve got on is a *dollarbie* from kosh.. the hat i’m wearing is part of a set that comes in several different colors that’s out @ sakide, which gives you a *lot* of bang for your buck (the set includes the hat, a dress, boots, and gloves!)… and even the pumpkin-holding poses i used here from magnifique are cute, inexpensive and include all the pumpkins you’d ever need for posing *or* rezzing around for decorations.

so now there’s no excuse! with so many freebies && cheapies on the grid for halloween, you seriously have to dress up with me! >3

you ever get that feeling like… someone’s watching you?

10.27.2012

yeah, me neither. *shrugs* wonder where that feeling comes from anyway…

so! today, i’ve got a.. pretty lady lost in the woods kind of costume look. this gorgeous dress from sakide, which is out @ the cinema event, inspired the look i put together for today. i was thinking of a dark, windy night…. a bright, full moon overhead… and creepy, ominous surroundings with only a single handheld lantern to light the way. i think i achieved that, what say you?

10.27.2012

instead of a forest, i used one of my favorite spots for photography && headed over to innsmouth, which ended up being the *perfect* spot. the fog, the dilapidated buildings, and the fact that i was totally *alone* worked for the kind of mood i was trying to set. it looks spooky and wonderful and absolutely fitting.

it’s just a shame i was all by myself… i mean, *completely* by myself… because on a night like that, having someone else there to keep me company would’ve been a big relief.. y’know, to keep the boogeyman from coming to get me. if you even believe in that kinda stuff.

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.

loft

back to a more normal look for now, because you can’t spend all of october in costume…

…well, i guess you could, and i’d certainly try, but y’know. just go with it.

10.16.2012

vip group members for oOo studio were treated to this grungy loft posebox the other day && it inspired the entire look you see here. pose props, for me, are usually hit or miss — i tend to like them, but only if they’re unique enough to really stand out from finding a nice in-world backdrop. and this one, with the included poses and all those dynamic shadows cast through the windows and doors, was definitely a hit with me.

10.16.2012

also released the other day are these pierced && gauged ears, from mandala. it was instant love for me, i *had* to have them, and they are worth every linden imho. the options alone for wearing these make them fantastic — there’s tons of textures and colors to choose from for every single part of these ears (including the *adorable* kitty faces i chose here for the plugs) as well as several sizes of gauges in either plugs or tunnels. they look amazing on and are packed full of bits ‘n’ bobs, as if i’d expect any less from goodies from mandala~

plus, new *gorgeous* skin from glam affair, some mesh skinny jeans from sakide, a new gorgeous updo from truth… and… i guess i couldn’t resist adding in a li’l extra halloween with these alien eyes from insufferable dastard that are out @ the cinema event. perhaps this could count as a halloween costume for an alien, y’know.. trying to blend in? kind of a stretch but i’m trying, okay!? i can’t help it that i’m *super* excited for the 31st.. ~_~

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? 😉

end of the night

a new round of horror haute started up today…

09.24.2012

..pardon me while i dress to fit the theme. *ahem*

sometimes, i just can’t help but attempt to be ‘artsy fartsy’. i indulge these whims even if they seem counter productive — as awesome as this torn lace overlay (from dg) is, it *is* appropriately named (obscure, if you’re curious!). because while it looks fucking amazing for photographs, it really does take away from what i’m trying to show off here: a new set of piercings from haus of darcy.

09.24.2012

i’m wearing the new end of the night piercing set here (colors of metal from left to right is razor, slide && silver lining) and it includes not only the face and chest piercings, but also several body tattoos for varying layers of infection around the piercings. aydan darcy‘s piercings are *always* delicious — i’ve said this many times here on my blog, so i’ll save the broken record! — and this set is a lovely addition to the entire hod collection. it is set out for a ridiculous price while horror haute is going on.. just *50L*, in fact… so grab it for the discount while you can! it is beyond worth it.

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

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~
