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.

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

Pink is your friend

crablng There’s a new gang in town called The Kollective. What intrigued me about this group is the concept of pairing bloggers with creators to make promo photos for the creations. I wasn’t in on this for the first round, but I couldn’t help electing myself to style the Lotus shape from Anna’s Shapes. For 100L you get a slim gal with a modest bust—one that won’t get caught in a revolving door. The dress Lotus wears is a very recent group gift from Paperbag, which may still be in notices. I could have used the included applier for big bübz, but I lost mine in a mailbox accident.

lizardzxc Lotus’s face is designed to suit Belleza skins, so I took the opportunity to try a line I don’t much like on my regular models, and I was very pleased with how pretty she looks. Then I went and added some of La Malvada Mujer’s Lux makeup, which you will find at the Cosmetic Fair. It’s more festive this way, no?

Blend-up

awk Sometimes your friendly neighbourhood blogger gets tired of sorting new items into “urban,” “high-fashion,” “nerdy” and “goth” folders. Sometimes your fr’ly. ‘hood bl’er. goes nuts trying to figure out the expiration date on “old” skins and hairdos. Today this blogger is mixing things up and bringing back fave skins from the not-so-distant past. The spring line from Paperbag is literally epic, and it’s full of affordable goodies like Portia’s büb-friendly shoulder-baring peach top. Ima get back there for more to share. Portia’s new techno-hottie shorts are available in a range of colours from Shi.

rolls Portia’s butter-soft leather jacket is a group gift from Tokidoki. If you aren’t a member of the group, you can buy the jacket in solid tones or florals at TDRFusion, or shop the whole range of colours at the main store. The laced, tight leather jeans are a 15L Easter Hunt item from Ricielli. I want them in RL. As well as the legs to wear them.

The fear of gold

terror2crpI was about to hit the pay button for Paperbag’s silver Slique unitard when something inside me snapped. Or creaked. It was more like a creak. I realized that it was time to give up on the safety of silver and confront my longstanding fear of intense gold.

In real life, were I to wear even a subtle gold, it would look like a piece of Hanukkah geld had sprouted a whitehead. But this is not real life, and Portia doesn’t look like she needs to be squeezed (more).

The offerings for the new round of Euphoria’s Limited Bazaar are so fantastic that I wanted to call this post “Fu*k yes.” The theme is menswear. Portia’s avant-gardey suit from E-Clipse and her colour-blocked coat from Diram are only two of the stylish, discounted buys. Remember that Limited Bazaar features limited quantities. If you want these, go as soon as you finish reading every precious word of this post.

Lilo Glom of JesyLiLo is doing two fabulous skins for winter events. This is Gül Buz, which will be available at the Frost Fair as of December 12th. When I slipped on this skin, I was pleasantly surprised to see that Gül Buz is a sophisticated and polished beauty. On the other hand, Portia’s hair, Valerie 2, is wonderfully disheveled, courtesy MissAllSunday Lemon of Wasabi Pills. Valerie 2 is the sequel to a neatly coiffed version, and both are available at the new Collabor88.

Zima, the other lovely new skin from JesyLiLo, is available until December 15 at The Winter Fair. For Zima, Ms. Glom has designed glossy lipsticks in a range of colours that cover bold and pale looks. Portia’s mesh eyes are new from Clemmm. The haunting periwinkle shade is speckled with white lights.

I saw a coat like this in a real-life ad and hoped against hope that I’d be able to buy it in SL. Thank you, Diram! Take note of Portia’s multi-colour boots, which are a Paperbag item at the Singer Icon Fair, until December 13th. The pack also provides a version with silver toes, and the boots are available in other colours.

Portia’s super-slinky gown is from Kex Blackheart of Paperbag. The dress has a scoop back and double side-slits. It’s part of the debut collection at the new Lyfe of Style discount shop. This new venue emphasizes urban styles that resemble the offerings at Fifty-five Friday. The dress, the gold-and-black harness belt and the Lolas Tango applier are all sold separately at 75L each. (Please note that the belt is system layers and the dress has a mesh skirt.) Sabina Gully of Magika has just released Stumble, a hairdo with a permanent—but colour-change—blindfold. I have mixed feelings about ombres in crazy colours because they can throw off an outfit. Magika’s colour pairings are fantastic, so I was thrilled to see that this style isolates the second colour at the back in a long, loose ponytail. This way, the ombre is a cool surprise.

I can’t resist showing off Lolas Tango falsies with Al Vulo’s current group gift skin, which includes an applier to tint the breasts to match. I find the line of these breasts incredibly erotic. The breasts can be scaled down, and Portia usually wears them on the small side, perhaps because I remain too attached to proportion. I have to say that I adore Vestigium’s Octapus tattoo. Lu Scorpio is celebrating her first anniversary in SL, and although this tat isn’t discounted, you may like some of the oldies she’s discounted to mark the event. Finally, Portia’s panties are part of Bubble Electric’s gift for the Hunt for Your Inner Slut hunt. This hunt started before Tango hit the market, so this outfit and many others in the hunt supply only an old applier. Tool around on a feed to see which gifts have been updated. Most bloggers are now crediting their fake bübs, so you can see which hunt gifts are compatible with yours.
