Dolls with jobs

dark matter Today Anorak wears the warp-core hot Leyana dress from Sakide at Futurewave. Available in white or black, the dress features a multitude of gorgeous colour choices for the stripes. In the first pic Anorak also wears Chaos Panic and Disorder’s Nemesis Chest Implant. She could pair it with a matching eye implant, but that will cost extra.

Unpartnered

bellyinbedshadowed Hicks from the sticks who switch. That’s how I would describe the men I sat with at a small shibari party on Friday night. The men who were tying up their girlfriends, and the guy who was getting stoned and taking pics with his phone, are city dwellers. As are the girlfriends. And me. Don’t get me wrong. The men from towns where there is no cell phone service were perfectly nice people, and the conversation was not awkward. What was awkward was having no prospect of getting tied. Okay, it was also a little awkward being way too close to people who were getting their hogtie on. Saturday night I went to a class about puppy play in a dungeon I wanted to check out. On FetLife dozens of people said they were going to go. Three couples showed up. And me. Don’t get me wrong. I asked playful questions so I could sniff out the possibilities. Quickly I realized that I identify with both dogs and cats, especially when they misbehave. The dog side of me would eat half an unguarded muffin and then have no clue why master was chastising me. I’d probably be happy to receive such vigorous attention. Not to mention stimulated by a swat on the nose with a rolled newspaper. The cat side of me would just play with the muffin as if it were a mouse and then show mistress contempt when she tried to remonstrate with me. Continue reading

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.”

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

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

Svanning around

soughtWith that cupid ermine on her shoulder, poor desperate Portia can be searching for one thing only. Love.
cafe goer Or a lovely cafe.
walkies Only one that she can reach without tumbling over in her new colour-change Svanhildr boots from Zibska.
