Bad scene

strungouting I found someone to scene with (as the kinky say), and it went wrong, albeit not horribly or irreparably. You will find my story under the cut. If you don’t click onward, do take a moment to note that the Femdom V hunt is running a little while longer. I am still ambivalent about SLatex, but I was pleased to see how cute infernal Anorak looks in this coral-red number from Say Nothing. Continue reading

Sounds in the night

shadowed2 Portia is wearing the sexy lace leggings from Cameron Vasiliov’s latest offering from B.D.R. The Hunting Souls outfit will set you up for Hallowe’en. It includes a bandeau top, wings, horns and plain and gruesome versions of a neck corset. There are also more appliers than this blogger can explain. Check out the vendor for deets. And don’t venture under the cut if you are kink-averse.

Blown away

flyslow Portia is blown away by Aliza Karu’s new Black Rook skirt for Angels and Demons. You can buy only the skirt at the mainstore or go to A6D to buy the matching romantic top (not shown here) and get a HUD for 50% off the skirt.
hornedoakley If they don’t get stuck in the gacha dispenser, Zibska’s ginormous horns are sure to thrill the throngs at Fantasy Gacha Carnival, which opens on August 10. There are several monochrome commons available and a rare version which features a colour-change HUD. Sian Pearl’s Child of Atlantis earrings are making a stately procession from We <3 Roleplay to the Chariot mainstore. (By that I mean she’s mucking about in a caravan with her family and has completely forgotten about SL for the moment.)

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.

Angel v. demon

bridefinal2 This month’s Collabor88 is inspiring. The palette, exemplified in the colours offered by Harry Hix of ISON, is sophisticated. Several creators, including Hix and Marie Lauridsen of Milk Motion, have worked to give mesh an extra dimension.

I am on the hunt for new skin lines for my too-familiar-looking av. Lately, both Modish (here) and Birdy (above) have caught my attention, partly because they make Portia look more or less dangerous. The BIRDY skin is one of 6 makeups for 99L each at The Chapter Four.

Chartreuse shines

teresa2final Today I found myself missing important things from my childhood. Dogs ran free in the 1970s. I miss screaming and bounding off every time we saw the extremely weird mop dog trot our way. (Poor thing.)
grafcharxlt Mouths were smaller in the 1970s. Sucking the juice out of a half-dozen honeysuckle blossoms was practically a full dessert.

If you prickle me…

zibcoutsmHad anyone told me when I started this blog that Portia’s fanciest outfit would be made of cactus, I’d never have believed her. Was this because I didn’t know then that Portia likes pain? Because the end of irony made working with succulents seem insensitive? Or because the Belgians rejected cactus as undeconstructable? No, no and no. It was because my little mind could not anticipate Zib Scaggs’ imagination. Her fabulous Valentina gown will be shown April 6th, the last day of Avenue’s Spring/Summer fashion shows. It is also one of the limited edition items available in the fashion week market. In addition to the gown and black face-paint you see here, the special package includes a set of delicate earrings and necklace, a pair of simple, strappy sandals and a decorous chignon hairdo in black and white versions. Underneath the cactus skirt there’s a gorgeous black satin evening skirt. All of these items will come in handy if the President’s Ball bans weaponized frocks (or ‘fros).blurcoutmed
