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?

The proper avenger

bunnml I am betting that the last thing you want your blogger to say is “I think I’ve had a relapse.” I was doing so well from November onward, and now I am suffering again. I have a hard time dealing with people and haven’t seen friends more than four times over the past year. Seeing my old grad-school colleagues makes me despair because I no longer feel as though I am part of our group of scholars. Their careers are booming. Mine is stalled; and I now think it was a mistake to keep at it. Beyond that, I seem to be so vulnerable to disappointments that I can feel crushed and unable to recover from a small thing like finding out an apparently single man, whom I don’t even want, is actually married. I went back to bed this morning and then crawled into it again when I returned from a brief work session. Eventually, I launched myself out of bed to clean up the Epic pics I took this week. And eat Twizzlers. I hope you enjoy Epic’s Bunny Avenger, which features a mesh corset, and is accented with frog closures. It’s available in many colours at The Boobies Show for one more week. It’s discounted there, so don’t delay if you want to get all latexy for less.

Hey lady!

merm4xxl The Aquarius Zodiac month ends on the 13th, so you should surf over there soon if you want a nifty mermaid bra by Brutus Martinek of Pididdle. JesyLilo’s loose-fit jeans feature portholes on the outside of each leg. Why I do not know. Perhaps to show off a tattooed tangle of kelp.

duveteuxl Meanwhile, back on shore, Sopha Portal has released a new skin called Vivian. As with her other recent skins, Vivian is available in a pack with eight soft and sweet makeups. Six of these feature orange-red lips, and two, including the one I’m showing here, run to pink. I tend to think I don’t like anything named after a princess or a lapdog, but Aranel Ah’s Tiffany colour makes BOOM’s beautifully sculpted, nubbly textured Duveteux Rayonnant jacket absolutely irresistible. As far as I’m concerned, Ms. Ah has the all clear for Savannah and Felicity.
