Dorothea

Sometimes I pick up a new dress or a bit of jewelry and then don’t get to write about it for a while (as I’m sure you’ve noticed).  I’ll put on an outfit and think Wow, that looks great! and realise that I haven’t shared it with you.  Dorothea from Sexy Princess is just such a treasure!

Dorothea comes in the standard five rigged mesh sizes plus fitmesh for your favourite mesh bodies: Maitreya Lara, SLink Physique and Hourglass, all three Belleza bodies, and TMP.  There are a host of colours to choose from as well!

  • GLITTER — Back Pose (Pose Lover event gift)

EarthStones‘ Flight of Fancy is perfect for the butterfly motif, and one of the three texture options just matches up perfectly with the green!

Happy Aloha Wednesday!  Be happy today!

Born this way

Only in the interests of unbiased reporting am I wearing this!  Full-on goth like this is certainly not my style.

This outfit is system/applier based (system layers and appliers for Omega, Belleza, Slink, and Maitreya).  It includes the gloves, fishnets, jewelry (including a spiked hand piece which I’ve chosen not to wear as it’s not Bento compatible), the arm and thigh bracelets, the necklace, the headpiece, and the nose ring.  It also includes the spiked shoes for Slink High and the lace bow and bustle.

I really like the half gloves.  I’m sure they’ll get a mix and match with a leather outfit I have!

And, umm can I plug into these Marshalls?  hehehe

InterSections

My lovely friend Sarah introduced me to the Gem Preiz’s The Anthropic Principle (supported by the Linden Endowment for the Arts) a week ago, and rather challenged me to incorporate it in my photographs.  You can learn much more about the sim here.   It’s a large sprawling cityscape in black and neon, and is truly amazing to wander about!

It seemed a good opportunity to show you Spyralle’s new offering for Genre this month, the Face Inter Face.

  • GRAVES — G257 Mainframe Bodysuit (blue)
  • Spyralle — Face Inter Face Headpiece and HUD (exclusive at Genre)
  • AITUI — Mechanical Wings –  Majesty Snowbird +HUD Rare (Gacha item)
  • 0[Kikay]Mega Lay Cutie pose

 

Face Inter Face calls back to an earlier piece that Spyralle did for Genre some years ago.  It’s glasses, a heads-up display, and a restricted message sender all at the same time.  It features a texture-change hud to turn the sunglasses on/off and select one of four different colours, as well as select textures for the little balls and their support pieces.  You can’t see the headband with my hair, but the headband terminates in ring-like headphone speakers for quality audio reception.  😉

Face Inter Face allows the user to project one of several little fractal images on the screen, as well as a couple of emoticons and (my favourite) the letters “afk” and “brb”.  It’s very cute!

A lovely extension of this would be to allow the user to drop in their own small image and toggle through those for the heads-up display.  I’ll have to suggest that to Kerryth…..

For now, stop by Genre before June 11 and pick up a demo.  This is a lovely tech piece, and will easily complement a futuristic or post-apocalyptic get-up.  Or anything else you might think of pairing it with!

Mahalo!  A hui hou!

Alana

Here’s a nice little outfit from Artic Storm.

The jacket is mesh (fitmesh for classic, Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink) and the jeans are system and Omega applier.

The cutout applier jeans are very cute, and it’s sometimes nice to have a good set of applier jeans to go under a jacket or into some boots without having to worry about mesh breakthrough.

Ku’u Polū

Aloha kākou — hello, all my friends —

I just wanted to share something with you today.  Not a product, not a bit of clothing, just a little bit of joy.

This is Blue and I.  It’s a simple little shot, taken down in our park while looking at a lovely little couple pose from [Kikay], trying to sort out what I had.  I love this picture for a bunch of happy reasons — there’s Blue’s lovely orangerie/greenhouse that she made (and I keep trying to convince her to put it up for sale in the shop), there’s the observatory and telescope on the other side that she made for me when she proposed marriage.  But that’s not the best part.

Look at us… sometimes I think this sums us up sooo well.

There’s ku’u Polu, my Blue — elegant and beautiful and focused — and there’s me, a bit ridiculous and completely unable to keep my eyes off of her for even a moment.

Today is Blue’s rez-day.  I think some people think rez-days are a bit silly, they’re not like real birthdays, right?  But maybe they’re better, they’re a celebration of our choice to be here.  And why would we ever turn down a reason for a celebration??

Blue is the most wonderful partner, friend, bride I could hope to have.  Her talents at building and scripting are amazing, but her devotion to her friends, to Eden outshine even those.

I’m so very proud of her.  I’m proud to be hers.   I still remember the first words we said to each other (yes, smarty-pants, even without looking at chat logs) — I remember the way I felt when she proposed.  Maybe I’ll tell you that story sometime.

And every day… I wake up and am happy happy happy to be hers.

And I can’t take my eyes from her.

Hau`oli Lā Hānau, ku’u Polū.  Happy rez-day, love!  Thank you for every single day!

Aloha kākou!

Wickedly Enchanting

Is anything so full of Enchantment as the gowns created by Bee and Solas for Silvan Moon Designs?  The fabulous duo brings you Lady Gothel for the May 2017 Rapunzel-themed Enchantment event.

Lady Gothel comes in five colours named (more-or-less) after the deadly sins.  My favourite colours aren’t hard to spot.  I like strong colours, and greens and blues and purples most of all.

I’ve always been an opaque-gemstone kind of girl.  Opal and lapis lazuli may be my favourites.  I’ve had this lovely lapis set from Evelock for ages, but you would think that Evelock and Silvan Moon worked together to create a matched set.

For those of you who may not know, Mother Gothel, the namesake of this gown, was the “evil witch” who kept Rapunzel locked away in her tower from Tangled, the Disney adaptation of the faerie tale.  She’s an interesting character, but I  prefer the representation from Into the Woods, the faerie tale play from Steven Sondheim.  Something about the depth of the Witch, her fear of loss — her actions become understandable, perhaps even forgiveable.

But I digress.

Wicked or not, let Silvan Moon Designs cast their spell over you… stop by Enchantment before this fleeting dream slips away.

Mahalo!  A hui hou!

Swing like an octopus

Ooooo some things are just too much fun for words.  Lei-wearing ‘ukelele-strumming octopi on a 50’s era swing dress?  You know that only could have come from Eclectic Stars!

Swingers Octojam comes in fitmesh for Maitreya Lara, SLink Physique and Hourglass, Belleza and TMP bodies, as well as the standard five rigged mesh sizes.

And a haku lei for a swing dress?  Sure, and Island Style Designs has a host of colours to match nearly any outfit.  I look almost as cute as those octopi!

Destiny

Something about this outfit shouts “Doctor!” to me.  So here we are at the emergency room 🙂

The top and pants are separate (I already have mix’n’match ideas for the pants grins) and are in standard mesh sizes plus fitmesh for Slink Physique and Hourglass.

As this is white (another not so friendly colour for redheads) I’ve used the opportunity to showcase another gift from FaMESHed, this great little hairstyle from Wasabi Pills.  FaMESHed runs until the 27th of May, so you still have time to run over there!

Butterflies

Kerryth at Spyralle has a lovely spring/summer dress for you, exclusively at the current round at Swank.  Lila is a mesh dress in four lovely palettes, each one featuring the lovely multicolour fractal patterns you’ve come to love in Kerryth’s work.

EarthStones’ Flight of Fancy is the perfect accent to Lila.  Flight‘s HUD allows you to select bead and wing stone colours from three different textures.  The blue/green ‘swallowtail’ scheme is perfect for Lila blue!

Due to changing customer demand, Kerryth is trying something new.  The standard five rigged mesh sizes are being sold in one box, and fitmesh for Maitreya Lara, both SLink bodies, and all three Belleza bodies is sold together in the other box.  The idea is to help cut down on the unused copies that you either delete or sit around cluttering up your inventory.  The demo box (free, of course!) has all sizes in it.  But make sure that you get the right one when you purchase!

Mahalo!  A hui hou!
