Nigh, not now

holding steady Futurewave doesn’t start until February 14th, but Pleisure is flashing you forward with a vision of Chariot’s Krylova jacket, a puff-sleeved leather wonder of the off-world colonies. The first thing I should say is that Anorak is not wearing the matching trousers. This is because even Cybermen can be momentarily distracted by a great pair of legs.
critical inquiryThe Krylova fatpack HUD gives you a choice of wool and leather fabrics in white and an array of sober colours suitable to any young professional. (And then there’s red.) You can make the uniform four-star snappy by colouring the collar and the racing stripes separately.
holding company I love shooting in the cargo hold on the Doomed Ship. Partly because of the palette and the detail in the environment. Partly because it looks so good in the semi-darkness. Partly because the thick chains hanging from the ceiling give me ideas. Mostly, however, it’s the scale that I appreciate. In SL so many architectural and design elements are comically disproportionate in relation to the avatars. The Doomed Ship cargo hold is a vast space that dwarfs my av perfectly instead of making her look like a shrimp out of water.

The cyborg wore panties

lara's undies I made a mistake, spending a bundle on some fancy *oUvUo* panties made only for The Mesh Project body, which Portia has never worn. I messed about with the free basic TMP body and realized I’d have to buy a skin to match the body unless I wanted Portia headless as well as topless. I could have gotten away with showing the undies on the default body, GIMPing the gaps that just would not slider away. But I’m a perfectionist, so I decided that this was the perfect excuse to hop on the mesh bodywagon. Why did I buy Maitreya’s Lara? Price. And the Glam Affair association. (My inventory is like a Glam Affair glam affair. But that’s partly because Birdy, my fave, stopped making skins. Please come back little Birdy.) Continue reading

Under it all

chilled I saw Under The Skin, an excellent film about the impossibility of being embodied female.
sisters It reminded me of a classic line uttered by Gloria Grahame in The Big Heat, “We’re sisters—under the mink.”

Fina night and day

archedAnorak is in the dojo. She wears Fina II, a rosy-hued fresh offering from Mudskin, Tiffany, the latest soft look from Wasabi Pills, and Sekka, the hot new tunic from R2 A/D/E. Hedda’s sexy strappy colour-change Achillea sandals and glorious Zephyrina headdress and necklace are both from Zibska. After the cut you can get a better NSFW look at Mudskin’s lovely bod and a softer shade of Zephyrina. Continue reading

Get your goat

getyourgoat According to the Chinese calendar 2015 is the year of the goat. I logged onto Marketplace to find a free goat tattoo to mark the year and found a demon. Nasty-ass goats are popular among Satanists, metal-heads and conspiracy theorists. I wanted something friendlier, so I opted for an Intrigue Co. gacha goat plushie named Magnus. Continue reading

Then I remembered

walk in the snow pxlrd Happy New Year one and all. What will 2015 bring besides more evidence of global warming? Joy and pleasure, I hope.  And the rights of citizenship for the disenfranchised. It’s a specialized wish, I know, but it’s one of my fondest. Under the cut, my story of a 2014 turning point in my erotic life. Of course. (No nudity, alas.) Continue reading

Naughty is nicer

xmas star I had no intention of doing a Christmas post, mainly because it’s not a universal celebration. I much prefer wishing my online friends Happy New Year, joining in an event that more people hold in common. Then I got a look at Noelle, the Christmas group gift from !dm devious minds, and the slew of sleigh-bells rang my tune. Showgirls look naughty and naughty feels so damn nice. Continue reading
