You got me

Generally speaking, I’m finding that the makeups for the Skinnery and Glam Affair Arcade offerings are too heavy for summer. I do, however, love the exceptionally soft and pretty Chloe 10 skin from Umazuma Metaluna. It looks good with the equally casual new Madeleine hair from Wasabi Pills. But it can’t quite stand up to the mossyback creature, which, despite its preppy pink and green colouring, is terrifyingly squirmy and fetal-looking when it wriggles out of the box. Continue reading

I am curious (salmon)

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

Charity on the wing

chloris flies
Fantasy Faire doesn’t last long and there are so many sims that one has to shop almost as much as birds have to eat. I forage efficiently by fastening on charity items. Any event that encourages a generous shopper to buy a dozen things in purple is asking for trouble, so I tend to narrow my focus to items that tone that purple down or go off menu. I bought chunky blue sabots at Bliensen + MaiTai, a heart-shaped, red-flowered tree pose prop from Boudoir and the circlet and dress shown here. The elegant Chloris dress from 22769 can be worn with or without sleeves. The 22769 team has outdone itself with this dress, which is available in other colours. They are also offering outsized crowns that make the medieval look modern. (All their items are wonderfully inexpensive.) The lovely and delicate Lys Circlet from The Plastik features a colour-change setting and is also available in dozens of other gem-stones. Another charity item from creator Aikea Rieko is a purple skin with bright-orange body paint. You may have to get it just so you can tremble at the thought of it lurking in your inventory.

Catch-up beauty

Crenellated I had to submit my tenure application. I could not take time to blog, but that didn’t prevent me from noticing that many events were starting and I was missing out on what would probably be my one and only chance to be a cutie moon pie or a dragon mom. When one falls off the blogging merry go round, it’s extremely difficult to hop back on. So I decided that instead of trying to blog every event, I would just do a mashup and call it Princess Cutie Private War 4 Men’s Love.

Under the cut there are nipples on breasts (where they should be, IMHO)

Balloon pants and faux pas

lesgirlsThere are days when I just don’t have the time or inclination to ensure my av’s outfit,  jewellery, skin and hair are perfectly compatible. There are also days when I feel “pose fatigue.” Chairs in particular disappoint my expectations. Sitting seems to ruin every last line of a beautiful avatar. So, there came a day last weekend when I was in the middle of styling a look and happened upon a great chair with mannish sits fit for balloon pants. Portia wasn’t wearing bracelets and her feet didn’t match her skin. But I wanted a picture, so I took one and I made it public. I’ve always been a mannish sitter myself. I remember vividly being scolded by my teenage friends for inviting unwanted attention by sitting immodestly in my own balloon pants. So this one’s for all of you who sometimes half-ass it or refuse to cross your legs.

Spring break

vacation All that hair. All those bûbs. All those shadows of hair on all those bûbs. And still she’s a friend without benefits. Not for long if she spends spring break wearing Jaya, Yukachoco Magic’s provocative lingerie for chocolate atelier, now available at The Gallery Gift Shop. The set comes in solids in black, yellow, pink and white and in girly prints that will make you put pigtails on your av. Even though that would be wrong. The set includes a Phat/Cute Azz applier in addition to Lolas Tango.

Going places

crossThe colour-change Neural Net from CPD inspired me to inject lots of colour into today’s post for Futurewave. I overlaid the new black-and-purple Graves Velocity suit with the new circuit-patterned Alcor bodysuit from Ponka. The Ponka bodysuit, which is cut to expose distractingly generous portions of an av’s flanks, comes with Lolas and Phat Azz appliers. The Graves suit is available with purple, clear, red or grey latex insets. You can check out the breastplate, not shown here, on the Pleisure Flickr.

Stepping out

on the way Janire Coba’s new Belle Epoque line will transform the look of early 20th century role-play with scrumptious daytime ensembles and swelegant evening gowns. Here Portia wears the Thelma skirt and coat, which comes with a matching hat. On the down side, there are no demos for any of the mesh outfits from Belle Epoque. On the up side, the texturing is lovely and many of the outfits offer a wide choice of fabrics instead of the same one tinted in multiple shades. The prices are also very low for work of this quality and originality.
