Spirit of Hope

One of the things I’m most happy about in Second Life is that we’re not just a game, we’re not just playing about, we do try to make a difference.  Creations for Parkinson’s has organised a major Hallowe’en event to support the Michael J. Fox Foundation’s Team Fox in support of research of Parkinson’s Disease.  100 per cent of all proceeds from the Gotham Island Event will be donated to Team Fox!

Solas and Bee at Silvan Moon Designs are taking part with two wonderful creations.  Spirit of Hope is an all fitmesh gown and overskirt for SLink Physique and Maitreya Lara.  It is beautiful and simple and elegant.

Spirit‘s overskirt features beautiful pale lavender floral accents that complement the lavender skirting on the gown.  Bee has really outdone herself with the texturing here!

Please visit Gotham Island Event and financially support the fight to end Parkinson’s Disease.  Researchers are making progress, but they need the funding to carry out the work!  We can end this debilitating syndrome!

Mahalo!  A hui hou!

HorroRomantic Hunt Part 1

The HorroRomance Hunt is on at the moment and runs through the 2nd of November, and over the next few days I’ll be showing you some outfits you can pick up while honing your hunting skills!  The hunt prizes are all L$1, so for very little money you can get some nice outfits (wait… nice? welll we’ll see) for very little money!

This outfit is a combination applier/standard size rigged mesh/sculptie outfit (woo retro), but it does have appliers to let you wear it on a modern mesh body (although it only includes appliers for Belleza and Maitreya.  An Omega applier inclusion would drastically help.  Oh, and the lace top and pasties come on system layers too).  It also comes with a sculptie collar and sleeves (I’ve not worn the sleeves as they don’t work well with Bento hands).

Sunset in Madison

Nooo not Madison Wisconsin, but Madison, the new skirt/top one-piece combo from Petite Mort exclusively at Tres Chic now!

Madison comes in 10 different colour combinations in fitmesh for all three Belleza bodies, both SLink, and Maitreya Lara.

Madison will only be at Tres Chic until October 10, so don’t delay!

Fallen goddess

The mist hangs close to your skin, a cool shiver runs down your spine that had nothing to do with the cold.  You look around furtively, and there — framed in the glow of the streetlight, regal and shining in silver and black… one who walks as if she owns these streets…

Okay, I confess — I am NOT a fan of hats in SL.  Even when they’re pretty, they…. just don’t work very well.  But then sometimes the perfect outfit just pops into existence for you.  When I found Silvan Moon Designs‘ new exclusive dress for the Fallen Gods Decennial, I knew that Spyralle‘s Breakfast in Vegas would make quite the statement.

The monsters were out, all right… but she was the one to be wary of.

Fae of the Fall

After showing the lovely Queen Frani to you previously, I thought I’d share my own outfit for the Sisters of Eden Autumn Queen Dance.  I’ve blogged the base outfit before, but added a bit to create an angel of autumn?  A fall fae?  Can fae have feathered wings?

So, sometimes you get lucky.  Bare Rose created some beautiful bento wings in their “B-Wings“, sold in black and white colours.  Fortunately, they are mod, so I could change the overlay colour.  Be VERY careful, the wings are NO COPY: do NOT try changing the textureONLY change the overcolour.  I played around a little bit until I found what looked just like gold to me.  The texture-enabled wings turned that gold into something shining with a hint of metallic glint.  Just… wow.

Persefona‘s Floating Leaves come in a number of different distributions.  They’re mesh, not particles, so they don’t contribute to the kinds of rendering issues and lag (and annoyance) that particle generators can.  They do attach to the body, so they move somewhat rigidly about you, but depending on your use they look absolutely wonderful.  They worked well for my dances at the party!

It’s always lovely when a creator puts together an amazing outfit… but I really love that feeling of putting together pieces from here and there to create your own individualised look.

The Queen of the Fall

Blue mentioned yesterday that the Sisters of Eden held their annual Autumn Queen dance this weekend, and our lovely Frani was chosen as the Autumn Queen!  Congratulations Frani!

Frani layered this beautiful gown from Bella Moda with an applier layer from Paisley Daisy to create her ensemble.  It’s a delightful mixture of sheer with a metallic glimmer, and it suits her well!

We’re so happy to have Queen Frani!  Long may she reign!  Well, until the Winterqueen…. but I’m so happy for autumn!

Mahalo!  A hui hou!

Spoonful of Sugar, part 1

It’s time to help support Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) (Doctors Without Borders) again at Spoonful of Sugar.  MSF is an organisation of health care workers who supply medical care to people in dire need in some of the most dangerous places in the world, and Spyralle wants to make the deal all the sweeter for you with Ireni.

Ireni is available in all of your favourite mesh sizes: five rigged mesh sizes, three Belleza, two SLink, Maitreya and TMP.

 

What better to complement than my favourite flower from Island Style Designs and some gorgeous honu earrings from Spyralle ?

There are many beautiful things at Spoonful of Sugar, stop by, do a little shopping, and help out those in need.  We are all family, and we all need each other

aurora’s glow

Sometimes some amazing things come down the pike and you just go wow

Prism offers Aurora, an exclusive for the 68 Main Event going on right now.  This bodysuit is absolutely stunning in its materials and lighting, and simply must be seen to be believed.   It’s materials-enabled, and reflects local lighting beautifully.  Aurora comes with several lighting effects, the principle one is a set of multicoloured invisible lights that circle and rotate about you, causing the bodysuit to shimmer in amazing ways.

The other lighting effect consists of a set of particle generators worn on the hands that shimmer and leave trails as you move.  They’re particularly spectacular when you dance!

The bento wings come with a simple built-in animation script, but they do not flap well: they shift from one static pose to another. THE GOOD NEWS is that a bento wing AO (such as the one that came with my B-Wings from Bare Rose) works amazingly well with Aurora‘s wings!

As much fun as it was to take pics of this bodysuit, my images cannot do it justice.  Fortunately, you can go to 68 Main Event and take a look for yourself: Prism has a demonstration dummy set up for your perusal.  Note that the light motion for the dress seems a bit slower than that on the demo unit at the event (this is a plus by my thinking).

Mahalo!  A hui hou!

Who do you want to be?

Aloha my lovely friends!  Some happy bright new things from Brii Underground Wear and Alaska Metro <3 today!

You know, I was wandering about, looking for a lovely place to take some pictures, and I came across this sign.  And I thought “wow, what wisdom that is — be with people who make you happy”.  

Some beautiful new makeup from Alaska Metro <3:  Rose Gold features some lovely gently glittery lippy and eyeshadow five different gentle shades with classic, Omega, Lelutka and Catwa appliers!  4Mesh runs from September 12th through October 11, so don’t dawdle.

  • <K&S> — Candy #2 pose

I thought about it a little more… and it’s true, there are many who fill my life with joy and love and laughter.  My Blue, my sister, my friends, the dear heart who helps me edit some images every now and again….   I have a hard time imagining where I would be without each and every one of them

But then, too, sometimes… you need your priorities right.  If you don’t love yourself, how would you expect anyone else to?  Stretch your wings and fly.
