Sunshine

I’ve been wanting to share this little outfit with you for ages now, and I’ve finally got the perfect excuse.  My lovely Blue gave me a gift certificate to Blueberry ages ago for my birthday and these were two little pieces that I fell in love with.  Britan is a beautiful little denim mini, and Koko is the fun half-cropped top!  Both items are sold single-colour, but come in rigged mesh and mesh-body-fitmesh sizes.  Britan has a little HUD that allows you to change the belt colour, rivet/metal texture, and panty colour — or just do away with the panties in the first place.  Koko comes in two variants for each colour — with and without the printed pattern.

I really am excited to share these foil freckles with you from Alaska Metro.  Alaska is rolling out a new free-join group — Alaskametro<3 loves, and the foil freckles are your gift for joining up.  They come both in Omega appliers and standard tattoo layers in six different lovely shades.  I’m in love!

Your look is out there just waiting for you to find it.  Thank you, Blue my love, for helping me find my way every day.  ♥♥♥

Mahalo!  A hui hou!

Heart of Soraya

Bee and Solace at Silvan Moon Designs have a wonderful exclusive for the Fantasy Gacha Carnival!    The three-piece Psalm of Soraya has four lovely commons colours, and full sets in coal and ice as rares.

I shared Spyralle‘s Grow a New Heart with you before, it looks just perfect in Soraya’s chest cut-out

Solas’ fine mesh skills show up in the lovely lace-up back.  And take a look at Bee’s butterflies hiding in the gown texture!

You’d best hurry: the Fantasy Gacha Carnival only lasts until September 7th, then it, too, disappears like a dream.

The Courtesan

Night,
dark, soft, alluring,
spinner of dreams I want to be lost in,
is a kindhearted courtesan,
who never demanded anything
for all her loving, that to me
was like a swim in the pool
of “Ananda” I was searching for.

I climbed her door steps
with the silent footfalls of a cat,
all these years for solace,
when the fair lass ,
regaled by my songs evening after evening,
scoffed and taunted,
when I fell wounded
in duels of life, I was forced to fight
to keep my honor intact.

Once,
seeing me left in the lurch,
blood soaked and badly wounded
she led my tired legs
to her house of magic and secret treasure hunts,
blessed me with oblivion, till I woke up.
Her mansion became
arena of silent dances of wounded memories,
till sun appeared above misty mountains
cheering me up with new promises,
but my thoughts never left her.
I spent my darkest hours
in her house,
thrilled by dreams she induced,
in which under moonbeams
princesses gathered,
bubbling fine wine brimmed
in sparkling glasses,
I felt the most loved man
within her tender arms.
I would wait for the night, my sullied lover,
to arrive with her hands of breeze,
to tousle my hair and caress my face.
Night  took away my pains,
her lasciviousness is the only drink,
that makes me ask for more.
She is not only mine,
as a courtesan, she needs to entertain
whoever seeks her,
But when I am with her,
she is all mine.

(Night is a Kind Hearted Courtesan, by K. Balachandran)

Dialing Home

There is joy in wandering…. and joy in returning.  The cosmos is my home, the dance of the stars my heartbeat. 

Neil said “We are made of the dust of stars, and the oceans flow in my veins”.

Come with me…. let’s set a course.  Second star to the left, and straight on until dawn.

Irises

I know, I’m always going on about how nice flexi dresses are for dancing.  So let’s put my money where my mouth is: Eden’s Summerqueen dance was this past weekend, and Paris METRO Couture had exactly what I was looking for with Van Gogh Irises.

I added a bit of jewelery from Spyralle: Summer Leaf earrings, and a new treat from the June 2017 SWANK event: Grow a New Heart necklace in emerald.  Simple, clean, and the perfect complement to Irises.

Now, as you might expect, a flexi gown is a bit complex.  This full outfit comes in at about 200k complexity, and a good bit of that is in the flexiprim skirt.  That’s about as high as I like to go for clothing in SL, but nothing compares with flexi for long gowns to dance in!

Happy Summer, everyone!  A hui hou!  Mahalo!

A touch of darke

I’ve been blogging about Petite Mort for a while now, but I don’t know how many of you know about Melora’s more recent venture, Oubliette!  Oubliette has a different flavour than Petite Mort, a bit of goth, a bit of darkness — or as one of my favourite book series says, “darkeness”.  That darkeness fires Lucretia, an exclusive art-deco inspired gown for the Midsummer Enchantment event!

Lucretia comes in fitmesh sizes for Maitreya, TMP, both SLink and all three Belleza bodies, and there’s a lovely palette of six colours for you to choose from.

  • {Way} — Katherine 03 pose

I really love the beautiful way that Melora has worked the angular lines of the dress into the more flowery curves at the top and at the hem.   That’s always seemed the beautiful paradox of art deco to me, drawing from art nouveau, merging the linear and the curved.

Stop by Midsummer Enchantment, visit Oubliette, and revel in the darke.

Andie’s Candies

I always figure that the right bit of lace…. will make you feel more exposed than if you were bare.

Stop by Carrie’s Lingerie to see what nakeder-than-naked things she has for you… and surprise that special someone tonight.

Embroidered Essmie

Petite Mort has a lovely dress for this round of Tres Chic: the very simple clean Essmie.   Eight beautiful earthy shades set off the most amazing embroidery I’ve seen in Second Life.  My tūtū used to do embroidery like this, she always loved this style.  She tried to teach me a little… but I was never so good as she was.

Essmie comes in fitmesh for Lara, TMP, both SLink bodies and all three Belleza bodies.  So, as a side note, I end up writing that list of bodies down often enough now that I see that list, the numbers — 1 1 2 3 — and start thinking mathy sequence thoughts.  Is that nuts?  Probably, but wow I am so happy to see so much fitmesh!

Stop by Tres Chic and see all the wonderful goodies!   You deserve a little shopping joy today!  And mahalo, tūtū, I always think of you.  🙂

Mahalo!  A hui hou!

A perfect day for the beach, grab your new ‘kini from Alaska Metro and a beautiful little cover-up, and let’s go!

The Veronica bikini comes in four “natural” colours: brown, tan, black and white.  The cover-up has a host of choices, three different HUDs are available, each with four lovely textures.  I really like HUD #3, the cover-up is just a little bit transparent.

I’d better get some more sunscreen, my complexion makes the Sun a dire companion!  Mahalo!  A hui hou!
