skirting the issue

I always have to be careful on the beach, my complexion isn’t the most forgiving — but a lovely buckled skirt and top from Sweet E’s Designs makes me want to risk it!

Buckled Skirt comes in nearly any size you could possibly want — five rigged mesh sizes, three Belleza, two SLink, Maitreya, TMP, eBody, and two Tonic fitmesh sizes.  They’ve got your size!

  • GLITTER — Back Pose (Pose Lover event gift)

I’d better put on more sunscreen, I will fry to a cinder out in the sun!  Aloha kākou!

Mahalo!  A hui hou!

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!

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)
  • [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!

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.

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!

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!

Sami revisited

Carrie’s Lingerie has released another new update on an old friend.  Sami was one of my favourite old applier pieces of lingerie, so I’m so happy to have the updated version with Omega appliers.  The lace-up back is just mmmmms.

  • Carrie’s Lingerie — Sami (fuscia) corset and stockings
  • .woundRibbon choker (dark)
  • Lazuri — Classic Pearls earrings and bracelet
  • [L.Warwick] — Savannah Ankle Strapped Heels (Noir Leather)
  • <K&S> — Candy #1 pose

Sami comes in six strong colours (and a fatpack is available), so you’re sure to find your look.

I usually don’t follow boudoir shots with something more covered up, but I do like wearing a corset and a pair of jeans… it’s perfect for a casual sexy look when you’re out for the pub.

I am so glad that Carrie’s Lingerie has continued to update some of the older pieces with Omega appliers.  I can think of quite a few to put on their list — Fireangel in particular, and that one burlesque-y outfit that I haven’t seen in the main store for ages!

Mahalo!  A hui hou!

A thousand nights and a night

Solas and Bee at Silvan Moon Designs have a lovely exclusive for you at We Love Role Play this month: the beautiful Song of Shaherazade.

Song of Shaherazade is a single-piece mesh available in in fitmesh for SLink Physique and Maitreya Lara only.

Shaherazad is available in six lovely colours — black, blue, green, purple, white and red.  Bee’s texturing is just amazing: I love the hip scarf and the the coin detail on the top.

I think I’ve blogged the Alae Atrae neckpiece from Rowena’s Designs before: it’s a beautiful neckpiece featuring an ankh and spine-wing motif, with a colour selection HUD.

Song of Shaherazade is a lovely outfit with a Indian/middle-eastern period feel, but it’s only around this month!  Stop by We Love Role Play and take a look today!

Alicia is such a wonderful comfy pretty dress!  Stop by Alaska Metro <3 and take a look!

Catch my drift

A late evening in the city and unable to sleep… so I slip on a short yukata, and feeling very daring, slip through the neon-sparkling night for a little bit of a late-night snack…

Eclectic Stars has a very nerdy/geeky chic, but this is just a stunning little yukata and obi.  I keep tugging at the bottom edge a bit… but am also a bit flushed at the excitement of it.  It does show off my legs.  🙂

  • GLITTER — Back Pose (Pose Lover event gift)

I’d shown off EarthStones‘ Flight of Fancy necklace before.  I went back and picked up the long version… and found that layering the long and the short gave a lovely looped appearance.  

Give Jadziya at Eclectic Stars a little love — stop by and see what she has for you.  Mahalo!  A hui hou!
