Work work work

affective labour It takes all kinds to make kink work. The Pit is a new hangout for RPers and bondage aficionados. Pop upstairs for a well-curated assortment of sophisticated bondage props including Stockholm & Lima’s shibari rig and Dutchie/Rustica’s orientalist cage La Signora della Pazienza. Continue reading


She comes in colours

Snapshot_801With all the events opening lately, you could be forgiven for neglecting to head out to Second Pride, where I picked up Epic’s animated rainbow wings for free. You may have also missed the launch of Sopha Portal’s new skin line for My UglyDorothy. Miu is the debut face. Ms. Portal is offering her signature cute shape and distinctive makeups, but now you have a choice of eight tones, each of which comes with mesh feet (but not SLink feet). The new system is a bit confusing, but I think I got the hang of it. You buy the base skin, which comes with a blank white face, and then you add the makeups for the face. The makeups can be added on one tat layer or they can be added in blush, eyes and mouth tats. This makes it possible to mix and match makeup elements if you have a fatpack for any given tone. Among the new tones, I like the pale tone number 2, seen here, and the lightest of the dark tones, number 6, seen below.

Snapshot_788 If you’re a member of the WTG group, you can now pick up the June gift of earrings and a matching ribbon necklace in a cute rainbows ‘n’ rain theme. If you want to see more of Anorak’s kookie colourful Yome Shoujo tunic, check out the Pleisure Flickr. Keep in mind, however, that it’s only available in less funtastic fabrics.

Go big (rocker)

gobigduex I’m fairly certain the top half of this outfit needs no explanation. (I do want to point out the skill I seem to have developed of making my av’s tatas look walleyed.) The bubbled-up Chouchin shorts from Yomeshoujo are the real attraction today. They’re actually much lighter hued than this rather dark pic suggests. They are available in several other fabrics. If you’ve never been to Yomeshoujo, you should go for the lulz, unless you are a minimalist, in which case you should still go. It will either reassure you that your home is not, in fact, deadly dull, or it will inspire you to get rid of that one tchotchke, take a Xanax and chain yourself to your fake Mies chair. [Stop it, you’re making everyone horny again. -ed.] Anorak is wearing Mayfly’s latest lustrous mesh eyes in a lovely shade of persian blue. Her cool new eye-makeup, available in a softened rainbow range of colours, is Sigal from Zib Scaggs at Zibska. The jeweled eyebrows and cluster of crystals are Zibska’s ingenious Valle set, which features size and colour change. If you’re really having fun with it, you will call the whole thing a meteor swarm.

binkysm Before signing off for today, I want to give the first ever Pleizzie award to the Numberology event. I have stopped shopping at huge events because I do not have the time to wander around a giant build, even if there’s a map online. Waiting for tiny shop signs to rez takes years off human lives and, studies show, off the lives of their pets. At Numberology, the stores are clearly labeled, the labels are large and they rez quickly. There are no randomly placed ads making you think the store you seek is over there when it’s actually over here, or, even worse, making you think you could use the ad to TP to the store you seek. [The thought of that makes me hard, in a good way. -ed.] Most importantly, Numberology allows your av to fly over kiosks that are, for the most part, open roof, meaning that you can see what’s available without descending from the sky. I imagine that events forbid flying because they think customers will discover stores if they are on foot. If stuff doesn’t rez, there’s nothing to discover. Ultimately, if I am a happy customer because I was able to access easily my fave store’s booth and bought something I love, I am more likely to poke around the other booths. (But I still want to do my poking from the air.) One more thing, SL: for the love of goddess, always provide chairs, or if you offer chairs already, offer more. These are the best means of getting around a sim or a large shop. If there are no chairs at a laggy, walk-only event, I log off and chain myself up to jerk off in my reproduction Eames lounger. [No, no, besmirch anything but the Eames! -ed.]

Even the evil relax

hailey If a picture is worth a thousand words, this is an essay. At least it is in my classes. Anything longer and the students do that thing where they panic and pout at the same time. It’s so confusing.

Lead me to your taker

fandroidcrfIt is with a heavy sigh—and a van-load of expletives—that I announce the imminent disappearance of Pleisure from the blogosphere. For quite some time I have been unable to upgrade to new versions of any viewer. Now with server-side-Easy-Bake-Oven about to debut, I will no longer be able to blog without buying a new computer, and a PC at that. It’s possible Pleisure will just go into a coma like Buffy did when she decided to give up fighting Glory. And a witch will come to the rescue. (Has to be a witch: the Mac geniuses know nothing about what one needs for SL.) Until the coma comes, I am going to share fashion stuffs with you, even if the pics I take are less than perfect. Sian Pearl has just released an Extreme Cyber HeadSet for MetaTheodora. There’s a version with a semi-opaque visor that is guaranteed to terrify spoiled blonde gods with bad taste in clothing. Portia pairs her headset with Epic’s Tango-friendly Slasher suit, which is available in multiple colours at a reduced price for a limited time at Bewbapalooza. This outfit inspired me to shop for neck corsets, so you may not see Portia’s lips before Easter, when the desire for chocolate will embolden her to meet the day in nothing more than a layer of Chap-Stik. One final note for all you space-girls: just because you don’t have gravity doesn’t mean you can’t defy it with some old-fashioned spiral curls. Get your Momo on at Whore Couture Fair 2.

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.

So wearable

I love a wearable demo! AnaLee Balut and her real-life daughter ShuShu Congrejo offer wearable demos for their mesh releases for ALB and ShuShu, respectively. A wearable demo gives one a clear sense of how the fabric will look and move. A blank demo that shows only the shape and fit of the garment or shoe is much less informative and far less tempting. I did a quick search of Marketplace and found wearable demos from Duh! and from Attic. Another creator who does them is Nene Flores of [Solita], and she has just issued a new mini-skirt for us to try out. (Her shop is also beautifully decorated, a good place to take photos.)

Sometimes my av looks pretty. Today it’s thanks to an Xmas gift skin from Swallow and hunt-gift eyes from Epic.
