Dancing with myself

Standard

How often does it happen, you´re either at home, on the bus, in your car, basically anywhere, and suddenly, that tune comes on the radio, or the shuffle on your iphone makes it´s notes ring, and for no reason at all except that you have a beat and a melody you can´t just not dance.

Culprit- Edwardia Chair Zebra and Heirloom Rug (FaMESHed)
{what next} -   Fleeftone Retro Record Player
Pixel Mode – Ashworth Armoire – Black (FaMESHed)

You sometimes start just by slowly tapping your foot, growing faster and faster as the beat speeds up and suddenly you´re dancing, and the most fun part of it is, you´re dancing like no one is watching, because even if they where, you don´t care and you would never notice. For as long as that song lasts is just you and the beat, nothing else exists or matters.

I´m pretty sure we all had moments like these, i call it the dancing with myself, and it was my inspiration for this blog post when i tried out this pose set from flowey, and the basic idea for the whole setting, it´s also how most of my blog posts start, so often with a simple contagious beat that speeds ups and grows till it´s a full 5 minute song.

1st pose came with the chair all others are from Flowey - psycho dance

And a simple song, becomes a lot more when i start building up on that tiny inspiration, and concept, you can´t just dance in an empty space, you need a setting a context and meaning, and then the rest of the blog post grows, with me sitting down and picking pieces and little bits that sorta fit in together not only for me but for those reading.

So i bring you today a peaceful, but at the same time busy space , i love doing furniture posts even if they take time and patience and a lot of positioning, i guarantee you  have has much furniture, if not more off frame in this picture, mostly because there is so much amazing quality available n sl these days, it becomes hard to pick from it all.

But i did my picking and as you can see is mostly part and bits from a lost of what´s available at FaMESHed this month and yet i had also to leave a lot of the awesome out, but you can´t possibly blog all the things i keep saying to myself.

Culprit- Edwardia Chair Giraffe, You’ve been Framed set (FaMESHed), Girl on a Pedestal and Antique World
Pixel Mode -  Ashworth Dresser  (FaMESHed)
Trompe Loeil -  Nine cell photo arrangement – Mist and Columns and Balance Lamp (FaMESHed)

This isn´t probably the best way either to show of the ne Slink Avatar Enhancement, and i am sure you will find a lot more, better posts out there that show you all the options, and the different appliers, including all the nail options from 1001 different stores, but i always do things my way, and i wanted to show the appliers in action and inworld as i normally use them, in my regular casual style, and with movement, free from close ups , with plenty of shadow dancing and look for the first time no seams at all on my feet or hands.

I´m sold and in love with these, and thanks to Siddean Munro for making the appliers available to other creators and also to Izzie’s for putting out matches so fast and all in a super easy to use HUD, i now wait for all the other shops that wil also follow, and all the pretty nail options i´l have soon to play with.

These are a few of my favourite things part 2

Standard

Some time ago i did a blog about some of my favourite shops over the past year, on that post you can find here: These are a few of my favourite things part 1 i talked mostly about skins, and of course a lot was left out, so today i bring you clothes and jewelry.

Now let´s talk about clothes, the advent of mesh brought a lot of changes to how we wear clothes these day, issues with standard sizes, templates and deformer where highly talked this year, most creators had to adapt and learn not also mesh but rigging, for some it was easier than for others, a huge amount of new shops came out, and a few won ground in customer preferences. I adore mesh clothes, system layers and even hybrids of both.

The amount of shops i usually wear here is quite big and it would be impossible to talk extensively about them all, so i´m gonna simply name a few of my favourites over the past year and talk maybe a bit more on some newcomers.

My favourites for blogging and regular wear this year where: MaitreyaGeometryBiloZaaraLeagueCracked MirrorErraticIngenueColdLogic, These of course are just a few of the many brands you can find in SL or my inventory, but basically the shops i end up wearing more here and/or inworld: But a few shops stand out for me this year as you can see on my next paragraph.

Wearing: 
Shape: mine 
Skin: Belleza - Wynter Skin
Eyes: Izzie’s – Natural Mesh Eyes 
Eyelashes: Maxi Gossamer -  Eyelashes – Groomed
Hair: booN
Dress: Volstead  – Empire
Jewelry: [HANDverk] - Beaded Leather Necklace and Earrings

It was pretty cool to see Glam Affair  start doing clothes and even more recently hair also, i can´t wait to see more clothes from them.

I don´t really do Roleplay in SL but Volstead  that started as an entry of clothes for a themed 20´s RP sim contest has won my heart and not only are the clothes gorgeous and some of my favourite of this year, but they work outside of RP environments.

Another two shops i´ve keep and eye on most of the year are Perception and 22769 – casual couture, Maggie started doing corsets and does some of the best shaped ones in sl due to her knowledge in corsetery in actual RL, and i´ve seen her work move well father away from simply corsets to a whole new array of products.

In the meanwhile the boys from 22769 can basically do it all it seems, they do furniture, clothes for both sexes house and decor stuff, there´s nothing they can´t do and they do it always with a smile, meaning Manu and Paco also get a prize for nicest creators in SL this year.

Wearing: 
Shape: mine 
Skin: Glam Affair- Renee (My Attic)
Eyes: Izzie’s – Natural Mesh Eyes 
Eyelashes: Maxi Gossamer -  Eyelashes – Groomed
Hair: Truth - Sassy (My Attic)
Corset: Perception - Overbust Corset — Capricorn (Zodiac)
Necklace: Perception - Capricorn Horn Necklace (Zodiac)

Now jewelry, in RL i can´t wear earings, not for more than 15 minutes before the itching starts i don´t wear necklaces either because i don´t like things around my neck, but in sl i can and do wear all of those, this year we had a few newcomers i fell in love with like House of Rain, stores i already knew and wore like, [HANDverk]LaGyo and lassitude & ennui and the biggest surprise of them all  Maxi Gossamer who now makes some of their sl pieces available for you also in Rl, follow the link to see which models are available here.

Well that´s all for now, hopefully i´ll be back soon with another instalement of my favourite things this last year, see you all soon and have a glorious weekend

It´s colder by the sea

Standard

Indeed it is colder, after hardly any Fall at all, winter came in with full force, and even if i don´t share much about rl i do indeed live by the sea, not in such a tiny small house of course, i don´t think this one would survive one stormy nite around these parts. Thankfully in SL nothing get´s blown out by storms, unless you really want to, and have the script for it, even today as i type it´s another one of those days, a gray, windy, rainy one, where it´s never really enough day light to make you feel like the sun came up.

The best thing to do on days like these is to simply stay in, with a warm cup of tea (no milk, and 3 sugars please), with a blanket over your legs and a cat on your lap, whilst you happily shop in Sl, sadly i don´t get to do that today, I hope some of you do tho, cause there is nothing better to do on a stormy day.

I have been lacking in blogging this month, and this is why only today i get to show some of FaMESHed goodies, and some of Baffle! sale items, well besides being sick over the past week, I´ve also been busy With Unhinged, just a few days ago i did a blog post on the Official event blog with All merchants Booths for Unhinged, a blog post that already needs updating since creators have been adding stuff to the Booths, I´ve also been trying to support all live djs that have been busting their asses, by keeping the event going.

I promise soon to bring you guys some Unhinged goodies in the meanwhile you can follow the amazing work done by my fellow bloggers by checking the Official flickr group. I can´t say how amazed i am at all the talent i´ve seen latelly, I had never been involved in the organization of an event before, and i feel so proud of all the bloggers who signed up to help and those that didn´t sign up also, seriously guys you all deserve my respect.

Until tomorrow everyone and don´t let the stormy weather affect your mood.

And now a word from our sponsors

Standard

I know i´m late again, this post should have come out at least a week and half ago, but rl and having a flu and blogging more Cinema previews over at The Hottie Cooterati Experience.

And today´s blog post is about Cinema, an amazing mesh build by Kaz Nayar of Pilot and Isla Gealach of Cheeky Pea, a huge event that lasts until the 31st and has more shops with exclusive items then i could ever count. These pics were taken shortly after the event opened for bloggers, and the first thing i did was grab all the food, cause honestly i love eating when watching a film.

I also do a lot more annoying things while watching a film, I talk to whomever is next to me, i fidget on my seat all the time, i laugh to loud, i cry at all the sad and happy bits, i try to touch stuff while watching 3D films, and i make all sorts of weird noises including screaming during scary flicks. Yep i´m the worst kind of person to sit next to luckily the Fennux didn´t mind at all.

I do like a casual and comfy look for a nite out at the Cinema and that´s why i picked this simple and cute mix of sweat pants from Cracked Mirror, and the Zombie print is just perfect for  the occasion, don´t you think?

If you missed my previews for Cinema you can find them here:

See you all later as i bring a Zodiac preview, probably not here, but certainly not so late this time, everyone have a wonderful start of the week.

A room with some view

Standard

Today i bring you guys not a view but a little safe corner, for colourful girly things, trunks for clothes and hat boxes from Culprit a gorgeous print, showing some leg from Cracked Mirror, shoes that string into a delicate silky bow from lassitude & ennui. Colourful walls and big windows by Zigana, a new Wasabi Pills classic hair, delicate and detailed jewelry, but all feels is casual in this place thanks to Exposeur.

These are the lazy days of summer where Vintage Fair takes up most of my mind, be it the pretty cute small trinkets and trunks from Culprit, or the cute gogo dress by Cracked Mirror, as usual  love bangs and a haircut that allows me to show of jewelry.

I also finally received the My Second Box samples for this month, and in it came these super cute and relaxed Exposeur poses, along with a couple pose, i didn´t get to see much of this past week Fifty Linden Friday tho, but i did get these LaGyo earings and wow the reflections on them are amazing.

Last but not least these gorgeous new sandals from lassitude & ennui for L´accessoires a brand new event that started it´s first edition this month, and so far loads of goodies in terms or shoes, hats and jewelry.

Hopefully later i can bring you some more goodies a new release and a beautiful scene, in the meanwhile in case you missed it i did another blog yesterday for The Hottie Cooterati experience, with a preview for Zodiac´s edition of Virgo that starts tomorrow, and you can find it here: Inner Calm.

Me in a fancy chair

Standard

About a week or two ago i started my first challenge, i had never done of these really, but this tumblr Men Sitting in Fancy Chairs, linked on plurk by Alice Demonia, was just so full of awesome, and an incredible idea, and i wasn´t the only one who thought so, because Ruby Starlight from Exposeur liked it so much she did two pose sets inspired on it, with chair included, one for men and one for us ladies.

So as soon as i saw Ruby´s add for the poses i ran over to the shop to get both sets, but i already knew what chair i wanted to use, and even if Ruby´s is very well done, the chair i´m using here has it´s own story.

It all started over a month or two ago when i spotted this chair by 19 Motorcycle in SL not once not twice, but at least 4/5 times in different locations, well i became obsessed about it, a fast tp to the store and i saw the chair there, but couldn´t find it on sale anywhere, eventually i simply gave up, and went on about my days spotting the chair occasionally and becoming frustrated by not having it.

Until one day why checking out the second edition of Fluid, with the lovely Pancake over from Renoobed, i see the chair there at the event has a decoration prop, frustrated i vented in local chat how much i loved it but couldn´t find it for sale at the shop, a few minutes after i left the event i get a im from a stranger, who had heard my silly rant and informed me the chair was a freebie from the store, that you could get from the board at the entrance, of course i ran over to grab it after all this time looking for it was just under my nose.

So anyways, here it is a challenge, a story, hopefully not to boring, and a chair with me sitting on it, showing off some of the goodies from several events in SL, my gorgeous necklace from Maxi Gossamer is from COLLABOR88,  and my fingers are crossed that Maxi will become an event regular, the earings are from Chloe i heard has some new goodies coming out soon to events.

You can find this gorgeous sequined top by Cracked Mirror at this month´s edition of My Second Box, and the hair is one of Exile´s Hair Fair releases who´s donations for WIGS for KIDS has reached over 3.000 dollars so far.

So here i am Sitting in a probably not so fancy but certainly different chair, and i know i´m probably not as exciting as the Tumbrl pictures, but here it is my first try at my very own first challenge. For other challenge entries please check out the Flickr Group. See you all soon with more new hair.
