Take step, insert spring

rush The first time I tried to shoot BCC’s beautiful Regency dress I had the bonnet and the curls…everything needed to portray Elizabeth Bennet. But the shots fell flat. Even my attempt to do a zombie Lizzie turned out lifeless. (Note to self: pose no av next to a repro of Napoleon Visiting the Plague House at Jaffa.) Yesterday, the combination of Clawtooth’s big blonde hair and the Nikki skin from Mother Goose’s led me to lovely land and the gown found its setting.

dew If I call this look a harbinger of spring, winter will take revenge. So let’s pretend that we don’t know the world can be green and haven’t the slightest intention of eloping with the first soldier who offers.

Hello earth

eartl Time passes between shooting pictures, editing them and posting them. Occasionally I find myself posting pictures that feel stronger than I do at the moment of writing, that feel as good as I did at the moment of shooting. Today I haz a sad, so I won’t tell you how this pic revises the end of Anna Karenina. I do hope that despite my failure of words, you will feel inspired to fly off to the Couturier’s Docks, where, as of noon today, Riri Ninni’s kinky Yoke Joke necklace is available in brown or blue-black in limited numbers. You could then take a taxi to LpD to pick up Nevery Lorakeet’s very romantic Ophelia dress, which is available in ecru, shown here, as well as white and pale pink. Finally, you will want to beam yourself up to Marketplace to pick up Sion Pearl’s new version of her classic earpods for MetaTheodora. These are also available in a blue-light version.
eartcl Hello Earth, an old favourite.

May your days be merry and bright. And may all your holidays be hella tight. If Portia is looking a little too sexy this Christmas eve, it’s because she finally made it onto Santa’s third list. There’s one for good boys and girls, there’s one for bad boys and girls, and there’s one for very naughty adults. Portia’s just heard the sleigh land on the roof. She can’t wait for Santa to slide down her chimney.

The Gallery Gift Shop has started its new rotation, and this hot cocktail dress by 22769 is available in red, black, beige and mustard yellow. Recently, I mistakenly reported that Dutch Touch closed on December 13th. In fact, it’s open till the 31st, so I am hoping to show off a few of Iki Ikarus’ skins. She’s always been my favourite creator of darker skins. This one is Amber v2. If you like a more innocent look, check out Jaliah.

I decided that I should do some work on accepting the inevitability of winter and snow. This involved dressing Anorak so that she blended into the beautiful landscape and cute cottage on the BCC sim. Please click on the tiny first pic to see one of the adorable new mesh capes from BCC. It’s a steal at 110L. (Even better, one of the capes is set for half price.) Portia’s dress belongs to the Rad avatar offered this past Lazy Sunday at The Plastik. In addition to the lavender and peach dress, the 75L set includes boots, arm-warmers, an elven skin and ears. Aikea Reiko often leaves her Lazy Sunday items out for a few days, so you might still be able to score this one. There’s also a set with a darker palette.

If you haven’t been hunting this month you can’t really call yourself an SL fashion fiend. Anorak’s VR jewellery set, a PMHH gift, is customizable via a comprehensive HUD. I really like the look of the extra-long necklace. Do note that the jewels glows in the dark, so they’re not ideal for nightlife.
