dancing girlThe accessories for this outfit are really lovely. Try to zoom in. The brunette pack of the beautiful braided hair from EMO-tions offers a wonderful range of tones. It is far superior to many packs that make incremental changes on medium brown.

Leather and leash

built to last I’ve been aching to wear one of UC’s impressive creations, so I snapped up this classic leather bondage dress when I saw it at Cosmopolitan. Today’s post is actually a public service: the vendor image doesn’t display the range of ways one can wear this item, so I am doing my bit to raise awareness of the options. You can add fur sleeves to transition in an instant from fall to winter or from a cosy bedroom to a damp dungeon. You can also switch from lady to lout—drop the skirt and you’re left with a many-belted jacket. Finally, you can earn a moderate rating on Flickr by stripping out the panels that oh so cruelly imprison your avi’s beautiful breasts. (What comes next is NSFW.) Continue reading

See the signs

nilfpixlrLast week the grid tossed up a veritable salad of signs and symbols, and I couldn’t resist compiling them into one teasingly interpretable ensemble. I particularly like the sandals from Wicca’s Wardrobe, which are her gift for the FemDom Hunt. They have red lipsticks for heels and a bold red lip print on each upper. Also of note, the latest VIP group gift from Spellbound features a nun’s headpiece lettered NILF. I suggest we can either pretend that we are so pure of heart that we can’t imagine what NILF stands for OR we can pretend that on Halloween there’s nothing scandalous about a sexy nun. Same thing as a sexy devil or a sexy pod person.
i saw the sign My av is wearing Nevery Lorakeet’s latest offering for LpD, the perfectly demure Optical Witch dress. The patterned dress is available only in black/white and only at The Instruments. My av is also wearing someone else’s noggin, Genesis Lab’s unsettling “albino” head Makena, which is a gift at Tres Chic. I’m feeling love for Genesis Lab because appliers for Maitreya’s Lara body and Slink hands and feet are free. I’m also feeling ire because the tattoos dispensed in the Wayward Halloween gacha don’t work with the heads I own.

Gacha creeper

place to plot I never have enough wiggle in my wallet to wear Zenith, a line I love, but when I saw the Devious Maids gacha at Wayward Halloween I shook some pennies out of that weird jeans pocket that no one needs. (You know the one. It’s crazy small. You stick your finger in it once in a while and wonder if it’s there because old-timey prospectors kept losing their teeth.) I won the blue sleeves, traded the pink dress for blue, and then bought the hat, manacles and heels. When buying gacha items, I no longer need to go to a huge market and overload my Area Search because all the goodies are available for purchase (at charmingly varying prices) on Marketplace. Lest I sound like someone who is insufficiently addicted to randomness, let me say that if I like a creator’s set I will first play the machine, then play it again, and sometimes try once more, and then decide I’m wasting my money and should buy what I want (before I poke a hole in that pointless fifth pocket). Actually, it’s more like: I will first not be able to get into the sim, then not be able to get in again, and sometimes fail once more, and then decide I’m wasting my time and should buy what I want before my inner Mentos-and-cola experiment blows. Fact is I’m always excited when a new gacha event begins because that means I’ll be able to get into the sim for the last one that opened.
hearttaker I’m awarding a new Pleizzie prize to SL Blogger Support, which has been getting early access to more and more events for its lucky members. Thank you Supporters from the bottom of my heart, which my devious maid stole because she loves the soothing pulse of a gacha pragmatist.

Daucus in the dell

daucusinthedell Zib Scaggs has been creating her giant heart out and I have been remiss in not keeping up. Today I want to share with you her Daucus gown, which is available at Rock Your Rack. This is a charity event supporting the National Breast Cancer Foundation and is presented by Models Giving Back. The fashion event is a couture maven’s dream. As is her wont, Ms. Scaggs is donating 100% of the proceeds from her creations. (There’s something wrong with the small version of this image. Please click through to see the larger size.)

Gone, not a goner

cirino by ZibskaI was gone. Computer caught the flu; I traveled on business. It’s recovered; I’ve returned. I also discovered erotic hypnosis,* sooooo I may not be totally back to blogging. There’s time, however, to be mesmerized by the shimmeringly strict lines of Zibska’s Cirino necklace, which comes with a matching circlet. It’s colour and size change—Portia is wearing hers shrunken. There’s time also to stare deep into Portia’s gold-and-grape Elf Eyes, one of fifteen new particoloured pairs from MUDSKIN.

*If I remember correctly, I am supposed to have an orgasm next time I open a door. Of course, I am also supposed to not remember that. UPDATE; I can only speculate that the time it takes to open a door is too brief for a woman to have an orgasm. It takes a while for us to spiral up to one; or we have four in a few minutes. A bank-vault door that is too heavy to pull open in a trice might be more appropriate. If you can’t access your neighborhood vault—or don’t want to commit a felony—go to a drugstore and try opening one of the automatic doors by hand. Oof. Unf.

Ear play is not my kink

no fond farewellI spent two weeks trying to write—and avoiding writing—an account of a partial suspension rope scene that left me bummed, not blissed, out. I want to be truthful about the downsides of BDSM. It’s not always ecstatic, and it can go wrong in ways that aren’t as notable and traumatic as injury or consent violation. I got bogged down writing up the details of the rigging, comparing the depressing partial suspension to the uplifting partial my regular top and I did the previous month. Suffice to say, the dispiriting tie was not torture, just challenging, an unintended predicament. The predicament extended beyond the rigging in both space and time. We were at a pro dungeon party and other attendees were sitting on a couch directly across from us, watching us play as though we were television (premium channel, I hope). I think this made both of us tense. More importantly, I had spent more than a week feeling all colours of upset because my top would not commit to a date to scene. He needs to get it together. But I had fucked up by agreeing that we could “play it by ear,” even though I know that I am not capable of being laid back or spontaneous. Ear play, it’s not my kink. (You’ll get an eyeful under the cut, so don’t proceed if eye play is not, y’know…) Continue reading
