Strip down, suit up

bastet Time was SLadies wore clothes made of fine soft fabrics that floated around their primitive bodies. Nowadays, they armour up in materials-ready metals, determined not to yield.
staff of anubis I wanted to see how many “primitivist” fantasy items I could throw together before Portia ended up looking like jambalaya (or the Lollapalooza audience). Pay careful attention to Trev, her colour-change necklace from Zibska. It’s menswear, but I figure menswear is for plundering. Also note the high-piled dreads of Iona from Discord Designs. This is a donation item at the <3 Ulaa event, which runs until August 18. I realize these events raise eyebrows as well as funds, so you can make up your own mind. Meanwhile, at 180L per colour pack, this hairdo is a steal. Generally speaking, gacha’s been kicking my av’s ass. All the more reason to wrap it in tin. I was lucky enough to score in quick succession two rare pieces from FDD, but otherwise I’ve just been getting triples of things in mint. Who wages war in mint? No, really, I want to know.

Blown away

flyslow Portia is blown away by Aliza Karu’s new Black Rook skirt for Angels and Demons. You can buy only the skirt at the mainstore or go to A6D to buy the matching romantic top (not shown here) and get a HUD for 50% off the skirt.
hornedoakley If they don’t get stuck in the gacha dispenser, Zibska’s ginormous horns are sure to thrill the throngs at Fantasy Gacha Carnival, which opens on August 10. There are several monochrome commons available and a rare version which features a colour-change HUD. Sian Pearl’s Child of Atlantis earrings are making a stately procession from We <3 Roleplay to the Chariot mainstore. (By that I mean she’s mucking about in a caravan with her family and has completely forgotten about SL for the moment.)
flownsma I had way too much fun with this shoot.

Vivid

poppedAlana is a new party dress from Nevery Lorakeet for LpD. If a fabric this bold threatens to raise eyebrows at the next garden party, you can always buy Alana in white or pink floral versions. Please save the black version for a slow nighttime ride in the extra-long limousine of a powerful wo/man.
oakley I love the distinctive look of Glam Affair’s Oakley skin with its enhanced eyelid. There are a few more days to play this gacha at Summerfest.

Naughty’s not easy

A friend asked me what the hell Hedda was wearing on her snatch. This wasn’t one of those conversations in which a man objects to a trend because it makes a woman less sexy (e.g., a long skirt in the summer when, in theory, legs should be on display). This was one of the most important questions in SL, because finding something to provide the tiniest bit of coverage for an av’s pudendum is tough. (This post gets naughtier, but also mildly amusing, under the cut.) Continue reading

I am curious (salmon)

sly
I am in the throes of intense gacha competitiveness, not with friends or bloggers generally but with the whole world. As always, I have been hitting yard sales, but I did get in to the Arcade today and snagged two rares. The price-tags on rares at yard sales are running up to 1,200L. This only makes me froth more at the mouth. My av is embarrassed to be played by me. Continue reading

What comes standard?

notstandard
There are two things about Collabor88 that I really like. First, if you aren’t the kind of blogger who previews the items or gets in on the first morning and posts a post right away, it’s possible to wait three weeks and be the kind of blogger who reminds people that they forgot to go to Collabor88. Second, r2 A/D/E rarely follows the theme and instead offers something shiney and sexy at gasp-worthy prices. You know that disgusted feeling you get when you play a gacha and something baby-boy blue or lil-girl pink drops into your inventory? Make it all better this month with the Suzuya dress.

Like a pretzel

Stretch

I can’t understand why random sexual desire comes and goes without reason. The one bout of indiscriminate horniness I can predict is triggered by ovulation. It’s not like wearing beer goggles. It’s like being beer goggles. Sensuous appeal is heightened to the point where I even find myself gorgeous. (Well played, hormones, well played.) I don’t know why I got to feeling unrestrainedly aroused and kinky last week. But it prompted me to finally try my hand at a few shibari pics. Looking at these images now, when my desire has receded, I can recommend only the shoes from Bowchicka. They are nothing but colour-change ribbons tied around the ankle and an ouch-inspiring spike heel.
More breasts, less stretching after the cut. Continue reading
