Glories

horns at play The glorious new Nyraxis horns from Aikea Rieko of The Plastik are available for a few more days at We <3 Roleplay. For some reason I find forehead horns sexier than horns behind the ears or atop the head. (I guess I like the idea of goring anyone who disappoints me in bed.) The horns are materials-enhanced. With Advanced Lighting enabled and the right Windlight (I like Phototools) you can see the delicate texture and striations on the bones.
swooning blur Also glorious—Moon’s Wight Birth hair in Fades, my favourite Moon colour palette.

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

Swayed

sway I’ve been shopping yard sales instead of trying to get into The Arcade. Portia’s lavishly long locks from Exile and beady-eye-beaded horns from Half Deer are my faves so far. On the one hand, I love buying items I like. On the other hand, I need to play some gachas because choosing only one among the multiple shades of Ingenue’s sandals would be tough. I don’t understand how Glam Affair’s Aria works, so I am going to have to play it until I do understand it.

burnttred On the third hand—I’m borrowing one of yours—I can’t find some things I want, like fd’s and Truth’s hairdos. And, back to Ingenue, lilac and iris are flooding the market, but I am holding out for sepia because I’m some kind of self-denying minimalist. Ultimately—hand me your other hand—I like the yard sale scene best when I buy a resale item from a person I know. It’s one of those weirdly attenuated, almost parodic, possibly soul-destroying social acts that SL affords us.

Delicate flowers

puffoutx Black and pink. Black and mauve. There’s no good reason for them to work together. Unless you’re a toreador or a torch singer. Collabor88 continues to be the best of the 87 monthly events a fashionista must attend. The dress from (fd) and the boots from Ison are an odd combo, but Anorak’s an odd av. The Ison boots require Slink’s medium bare feet. With the exception of Lolas, the prospect of adding mesh enhancements to my av makes me feel like taking a nap. I persevered this week, however, because the boots are so sexy. I feel very frustrated by how big the feet are. They make my nit-picky arty eye all itchy. Is there a resize function I can’t find? Are the phat azzes and loud mouths also huge? If they are as enormous as the feet…well…let’s just say it’s a damn good thing that boobs can never be too big!

Nevery Lorakeet’s latest skirt and blouse combo is called Alessia, and is only available in greyed black and pearl-pink set. The blouse is puff-sleeved and the skirt is textured like, erm, like the skin of an animal that did not die to make this outfit. The flowers did not die. The fur did not die. The only thing killed for this post was a half-dozen donut holes.

I adore the Origami Sandals by e-clipse, a line that always surprises me with its unusual offerings at Limited Bazaar. The shoe is a gold-edged black platform thong worn with a black sock. (Special to Limited Bazaar: I liked it when you and TDR Fusion opened rounds on alternate Fridays. Now that you are synced up I will have nothing to look forward to on half the Fridays of my life. Please change back.)

Best breastplates

brstpl2crp I have long wanted to do a post featuring one of Zib Scaggs’ specialties, necklaces that double as breastplates. The Zibska line features many inventive bib-like or jabot-type designs in metals. Most of the necklaces are colour change, so you can coordinate your av’s flash armour with multiple types of animal skin. The necklaces also offer size change. They scale up a lot, making it possible to civilize the savages among us—those who would fain bare their terrifying teats to all and sundry.

Speaking of, here’s a cut. A nipple lurks on the other side of it. At least I hope it’s a cut. Cuts have never worked for me before. But Darkley Aeon suggested I double bag. I mean double cut.

(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.
