Never let me go

i'msurethat'snotAlaska Never let me go to school, that is. Today I slathered poor Anorak with moles and tears in an attempt to convey just how distressing it is to have to return to professing. Then I didn’t get a closeup, so there’s no emotion here, just a weirdly big-butted babe wondering why she can see Alaska from her front porch.
cupcake Shortcake Sugarplum, creator for No. 7, has just released a stunning array of dark crazy-colour lipsticks, some of them matte like icing, some of them speckled with sprinkles. Sprinkles, like on a cupcake or frozen yogurt or everything your four-year-old creates in some kind of twisted plan to fill you with fattening food. (Let’s face it, it’s kindergarten that starts kids down the sprinkles road. And kindergarten is a form of school.) Traditional tattoo, LeLutka and The Mesh Project versions of the No. 7 lipsticks are available now at The Instruments.
piedra BYRNE’s new Piedra dress, also available at The Instruments, is a perfect harbinger of fall. Sharpen your pencils, but only if you’ve resigned yourself to the inevitable.

Fnuh

missing you “Fnuh” means I hate it when my rope top is not available. “Fnuh” doesn’t mean I hate it when my avatar looks lovely. I can always count on LpD creator Nevery Lorakeet to tempt my digital doll out of the darkness and into something sweet and elegant. The Violette dress combines a relaxed avant-garde cut with a soft classic fabric. Each version of the dress features a lovely colour combination: dark blue with yellow, white with pink, green and pastel pink, pink and light blue, light yellow with lilac, and the burnt orange with light blue version worn here. I love creative colour pairing so it was very difficult to choose just one dress to show you. In a tribute to the beautiful pale-grey dye jobs I am seeing IRL, my model also wears MissAllSunday Lemon’s greatest Hair Fair hit—the Pepper style with its multi-colour band, which you can see below the cut. (You will also have the opportunity to see what my av gets up to when a hobby horse is her only companion. And you will be able to read  about my latest adventures in kink and therapy.)

Throughput

thatcan'tbegood I’m tempted to say that this year’s edition of Futurewave will send you into orbit but that might induce cryo-cringe. Let me just suggest that you follow Hedda’s lead if you want to look chic during the last mission of a doomed ship. She accessorizes a latex dress with heel-free shoes by Miamai, a colour-change necklace from Gallactica, geometric cuffs by Zibska and Bliensen + MaiTai’s Raumzeit helmet.
mudinyoureye Sopha Portal’s latest skin features a new body in five tones (Pale, Sunny, Tan, India and Africa). For Hedda I chose the India tone of the Don’t Be Cry skin, a single makeup that comes with multiple eyebrow colours and a browless version. You will need new appliers for the new tones/body and they are free in the mainstore for a little longer. Sopha is working on Maitreya appliers, so she is ahead of the game as far as meeting a new demand from the market.

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

Bared face beauty

collagebareface The challenge is to shoot a portrait of your avatar without makeup, lashes or enhancements and without any photo editing. I decided to give a make-under to all my women, so Hedda and Anorak are sharing a totem pole with Portia. This challenge was easy for me as I very rarely make my gals up. But finding a skin that is truly bare is a different matter, so I had to go deep into my inventory to find (top to bottom) Ming by The Skinnery, Luaflor by Essences and Aria by League. I don’t mess about much with eyelashes, unless they are six inches long and play “Fortress Europe” just as loud as it needs to be played.* The same could be said of breasts, which I was a little sorry to sacrifice for this assignment, especially as they would have enhanced the stereo sound. My photo-editing skills plateaued long ago, so these shots (which use the CalWl windlight with shadows enabled) aren’t that different from my usual pics. All in all, this challenge demonstrates that the design of an av’s face is crucial. Most important is getting a flattering or fascinating match between that face and a sensitively rendered skin. Check out the Flickr pool.

Ups and downs

lash me hag No. 7 creator Shortcake Sugarplum offers eyelashes to suit every mood. Okay, not every mood. Just the ones when you are feeling upbeat or downcast. Either way, MissAllSunday Lemon’s new blunt-cut Karin hairdo for Wasabi Pills will keep you in line. Anorak’s nails are free from freebird.
stand and deliver There’s a 50% off sale at the new location of Pixicat. This is one of my current favorite lines. The black version of the Dark.dress that Anorak wears here comes in matte and shiny finishes. Both packs contains the dress in black alone and in variations pairing the black bodice with intense metallicish color skirts such as blue and red. I don’t know when the sale ends. Don’t say I didn’t tell you to stop studying for your test and log in now. This pic features just one of the delightful poses in Ma Vie’s Subliminal pack, which is a gift in The Dirty Turkey Hunt run by Depraved Nation. You’ll see another pose on the Pleisure Flickr.

Uncinched

slapped When your inner thighs become an erogenous zone you need to show them off in the first pair of black leggings you’ve worn in public since 1992. Textile technology has improved. My new leggings are as perma-tight as they are hella-shiny. My thighs…well, they were on a date with the man who slapped me (it’s a long story), and they were open to being squeezed, pinched, spanked and more. In 1992, I wore a bell-shaped tunic with my cotton leggings. I looked like a clown. In 2014, I can wear a cleverly cut sexy tee just long enough to cover my butt. Alas, it doesn’t matter how much fabrics have slinkened and shapes have sleekened if a date isn’t meant to be. In texts we had proposed going for coffee or a drink, maybe dinner I said, maybe a dungeon he said. It was too soon for that, I responded, and threatened to wear my ugly undies. He rightly pointed out that I probably had some panties that wanted to be worn on a Saturday night. My thighs would be happy in their leggings, so I didn’t have to worry about them becoming envious of my rear-end, which I treated to something lacey in the front and netted—only netted—in the back. It was all a wasted effort, because after spending two hours relating all the ways that he isn’t available, he passed on dinner and on what could have happened next. You see, that slinky top of mine is oversized. There are big cut-outs in the upper arms that sag and drag down an already deep draped v-neck. So on most occasions I make it presentable by cinching it at the back of my neck with a long black-silk ribbon. It was Saturday night, so I could have let the top loose before leaving home, but I decided instead that I would hold off till we got to the dungeon. Had we made it—had he stuck around long enough to hear how many ways I am not available—he would have seen me let down my blouse. I’d have casually opened it up for his eyes and hands, only to distract him by revealing the long black ribbon and asking if he could find another way to use it.

You got me

waiting Generally speaking, I’m finding that the makeups for the Skinnery and Glam Affair Arcade offerings are too heavy for summer. I do, however, love the exceptionally soft and pretty Chloe 10 skin from Umazuma Metaluna. It looks good with the equally casual new Madeleine hair from Wasabi Pills. But it can’t quite stand up to the mossyback creature, which, despite its preppy pink and green colouring, is terrifyingly squirmy and fetal-looking when it wriggles out of the box. Continue reading
