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.

Satellite of love

ZibskaEuropa Hair Fair has to be the fashion year’s weirdest event. Until mesh bodies give us the option of multiplying av heads there’s just no way to wear a dozen new hairdos at once. One possible exception to this rule is the work of Zib Scaggs for Zibska. Ms. Scaggs’ hairdos are so avant-garde that they could be stacked to stunning effect. Here Portia opts only for Io, named liked all five new offerings for one of Saturn’s moons. Personally, I would avoid the annual coiffure craziness altogether if it weren’t for the opportunity to contribute to the Wigs for Kids charity. Zibska is the place to go if you want to donate in high style because each new ‘do is set for an impressive 50 per cent donation. Let the hair games begin.

Heavy sighs

moody
Don’t sigh over end-of-the-month shopping withdrawal. Go back to World Goth Fair, which is raising funds for the Sophie Lancaster Foundation, and buy Excess, the 50% donation item from Sakide. It’s an elegant combination of the rubber leggings you see here with a matching cropped bustier. Portia has accessorized this look with the rare nipple punisher from The Fallen at Fantasy Gacha Carnival. Having never seen the like of this cruel piercing, I had to have it and was lucky enough to win the whole ultra rare ensemble on the first play. It also contains a handsome pair of chain-trimmed leather cuffs scripted to bind your av’s wrists to her ankles.  Continue reading

laced I could have made this outfit much more tasteful if I’d chosen the black lace bodysuit from B.D.R. But I love black and pink together, and I don’t see why a goth hat has to make an avi evil. Cameron Vasiliov’s bodysuit—which comes in many stirring colours—can be worn with or without the gloves and stockings. You have a choice of covered-up or classic decolletage. And there are appliers for body parts I have never heard of. Aliza Karu’s Sophia hat for Angels and Demons is a 100% donation item for the Sophie Lancaster Foundation at this year’s World Goth Fair. There are horns and flowers, jewels and netting, and it’s resizable in case you want to ruin all the fun and make it proportional with your avi’s implants. More of those and credits too below the cut. Continue reading

Gimme some skin

Aruyeh's face Aikea Rieko of The Plastik will be at Skin Fair tomorrow with a line of skins in delectable tones. I chose Aruyeh, one of the medium tones, and Gyatala, the second darkest, and my fave, for today’s post. There will also be a few rainbows’ worth of Fauxe eye makeups, which Anorak sports here, and a passel of Slink nail polishes. If you are avatar enough to brave the bare flesh under the cut, you’ll see that these skins are for Lolas lovers. Continue reading

I picked purple

purp3x At times I think I’m a bad blogger, so I decide to make it worse. Colour-wise Oh My Gacha was good to me—except for the mint, I can’t do anything with mint—because it paid out in black and rose gold. But it also gave me purple in the form of the Saturn undies from tsg. I accepted chance’s implicit challenge. In the only way I know how. By typing the word purple into my inventory. The old flower-tipped mustache was a surprise. But everyone likes a mustache on a pretty girl. (See above re making it worse.)

Rare gacha guilt

As if I didn’t have enough neuroses to enjoy, I now feel bad about winning rare gacha prizes that other players would enjoy more than I do. I paid a visit to the Winter Is Coming fantasy gacha event and won a bunch of duds. Against my better judgment, I went back the next day because I really wanted a rare Luas outfit, even though my av is not good with loin-cloths. Immediately I won the outfit and two other rares, one of which is an “ultrarare” complicated combat-ready double-fangled bow from GTS (that is not transferable). This weapon is meant for battle, and I am certain that I have no need to kill or even wound avs in SL. (In fact, I am such a pacifist that I no longer speculate angrily on the tiny size of griefers’ dicks.) What follows is safe neither for work nor for the Thanksgiving table. That’s because there’s nudity, which is ostensibly more objectionable than weapons or challenges to idiots’ manhood.
