Tropical cool

bus4x I like to do a resort post in the dead of winter. Instead of bathing suits, I’m featuring Indyra Originals’ mesh Memoire skirt, which comes in packs of four variations for only 295L. Portia’s clutch is by Amarelo Manga. One can change the leather, metal and stones via menu. The best part is that it comes with an AO offering four awesome clutch-clutching poses.

(Under)statement

kyoot2 It’s sad to see Kyoot go. Saeya Nanda participated in Fifty Linden Friday and in Collabor88, so I have been able to collect quite a few of her pieces. When I think of Kyoot, I think of cleavage. I’m not kidding. Ms. Nanda shows off an av’s assets in a way that is softly sexy rather than flashy. For today’s post, I accessorized one of Kyoot’s understated Whitehaven dress with a new statement necklace from Zibska. It’s an array of slim bamboo branches, appearing substantial from afar and delicate up close. The different textures combine closely related colours: if you blow up this pic you will see that the coffee texture juxtaposes brown with green. The other texture options include black, green and indigo. The necklace is also resizable.

kyoot3l Sweet up front, the A/D/E kneehigh boots from R2 turn surprisingly sexy in the back.

I’ve never understood why people on first dates go to dinner before the movie. There’s nothing to talk about—except for him, him, him—if you haven’t seen the movie.


Plus, there’s no one to pay for your ticket if you eat your date for dinner.

Serene in oyakin

I think pixel polkadots have a hypnotic effect on digital shoppers. It took me forever to select this stormcloud-grey colour of oyakin’s new mizutama onp, because the lipstick-red and indigo-blue versions were tempting like chocolate at an hour when I was craving rice. Dress in hand, I picked up a fatpack of mock turtlenecks in pale colours—and black—which is on sale at the rear of the store for 100L. Just before I TPd away, I impulse bought some more dots sprinkled across a colour I wanted to suck like a hard candy.

I wouldn’t have been able to take this picture of oyakin’s delectable dot tunic in momji if Trisha Banx hadn’t randomly saved me from hunt fail, which was keeping me from my camera and inspiring thoughts of deleting all SL viewers from my computer. I hadn’t been able to find the *dg* box in the Tea Hunt, and I was putting the hate in Hateween at *dg*’s shop when Trisha just up and IMed me a clue-like phrase that was virtually identical to a location-type name. She then sent me back to Kiitos—which I had already scoured three times—armed with what could only be described as a masterful pumpkin detection plan. (No cheaters here at Pleisure! Nuh uh.) TYVM Trisha!

Class rawr

Anorak Offtherack wears E’Dior’s 1930s-style Comfort gown, one of the passel of freebies set out for Modavia Fashion Week.

I have a special folder in my inventory for Sonatta Morales’ free vintage-fashion accessories, so I was thrilled to see the goodies she laid out for us for MFW. These shiny, bold leopard-print stockings make Shapely Model’s legs thrum with raw power.

Ms. Morales also set out a pair of slinky snow-leopard gauntlets and a matching hat (not shown).

Not cloud 9

Cloud 10 (the manic episode cloud). I decided that if I was going to buy one of the yellow or orange costumes featured at DU4, it would have to be the boldest and brightest of the bunch. Duboo’s Soosunwha is a moderately priced, two-for-one pack of pajamas so punchy and fun that they would keep mere humans awake for hours. Luckily, avatars are like cats and computers: they slip into sleep mode with ease.

Cloud 6.5 (the droopy flower cloud). There are options for these outfits: each has three different tops, and two of them have glow and non-glow versions. There are two variations on a pair of orange shoes, and two hair accessories, one with and one without gems. There’s also a pair of pink socks in case you get to worrying that your avi’s feet will be cold at night.

Spotty one

Now I’ve gone dotty for the idea of spotty. Please bear with me over the next few days (or weeks), as I explore this theme, beginning with low-key, subtly sexy, spotty dresses. Portia wears today’s 50L Friday item from Kyoot, a knit dress with a deep decolletage covered in demure lace and one of the tightest skirts she’s ever worn. She pairs it with boots from Sand Shack, the leggings from an old Atomic group gift and Brody gloves from Viva Glam. The pose is a dollarbie from Kuri Style.

Portia’s springy golden hair from DP (Double Paradox) reflects the rays of the sun as it sets over the China sim. Her skin was Dutch Touch’s release in honour of that wretched event one blogger referred to as “Singles Awareness Day.” Oh yes, I’m that over it.

I’ve already grown tired of shooting Portia, Portia, Portia, so I am introducing Pleisure’s youth correspondent, Anorak Offtherack. She never speaks, partly because she has to keep her cigarette dangling at the right angle. But she will hastily type things into handheld devices and occasionally sneer at what I can only assume are the responses to her sallies. Here Anorak wears dot-minionp in fawn, an old gift from Oyakin. (This design is no longer available, but I wager it’s buried somewhere in your inventory.) Anorak’s stockings are part of a bodysuit set from SK Designs and her shoes are Periquita’s Silly Wedges, which are colour-change.

Anorak Offtherack is literally that. No hand-carving here. Just a hip, no-mod shape called Odette by Beautiful Girls, which costs 1L at the Free*Style trailer on Floyd. The pack does include several variations on system eyelash length, and a small hands version, which must help a teen avatar text faster. Anorak’s Maitreya Sasha hair in Ash blonde helped Haiti (like she cares). Her dotty skin is Mother Goose’s Rebecca skin, which I won very quickly from the shop’s gaggle of Lucky Boards. The cigarette, should you unwisely choose to smoke one, is from FNKY!
