Constantly tested

preparedI’ve been gone for a while. I kept wondering if I was coming back. I’m not sure that I am back. I had two Hallowe’en outfits to blog, but life got in the way, and then I felt no interest in SL. Truth be told this has partly to do with the fact that I now need to use a mouse with my laptop and don’t want to sit at a desk to recreate after sitting at a desk to work. Continue reading

Sway in the swarm

ushas wings Suspended awkwardly from her thighs and ankles, Portia is thrilled when licorice allsorts take to swarming around her body, until she realizes that she’s already got something in her mouth. Portia wears Zibska’s Usha, which comprises a headpiece and pieces for the upper and lower arms and hands. They can be copied, so there’s no reason not to bury your avi in baby blocks. The HUD allows you to change the colour of two separate batches of black-striped blocks and to blow them up or shrink them down.
twisting Surrealia Anatine of Stockholm & Lima has just released the RLV compatible Nightingale Cage at ROMP. There are perch, bondage and shibari options. (And probably sex. Sex shmex.) The shibari poses are animated (with a pleasing variety of head positions) so you can watch your bunny swing vigorously until she tosses her licorice allsorts. (Or use the slow motion option in the Developer menu of Firestorm.) There are fewer bars in the cage, and they disappear for some of the perch poses. This affords you the new thrill of snapping a picture of every inch of your imprisoned av, as opposed to the nipple or nose you can glimpse between the bars. As with previous Stockholm & Lima props, the dressing process, though streamlined in permission requests, is involved, and if you crash you have to start again. The leg straps are still too big, even though Portia is not a barely-thighed beauty, so I hope that there will be a resize option in the future.

Love it and leave it

lovebird What blogger could resist Exposeur’s cage? It’s not the least bit ironic as it heart-frames an av’s sweet face. That’s because love is all around when a slave is on her knees and under lock and key. My lovebird is wearing Svana, a new flower-chain necklace and earrings from Zib Scaggs for Zibska. You can change the colour of each petal of the flower by HUD. I went for jewel tones to harmonize with the Dead Dollz spiked satin lingerie in dark blue. Like all Zibska jewellery, these pieces can be resized. Travel beyond the cut to see the full-length version of the necklace tickle Portia’s nipples. Continue reading

Serene in stripes

whistler In the absence of the annual event at Bakumatsu, Japonica is your destination for a kimono celebrating the season. Out of a wide range of choices—which had me flirting hard with a man’s outfit that I still might buy—I was most attracted to this striped kimono by creator Kokoro (heart.irata) for Kokorotayori. Choosing this one was a risk: the creator provides no demo despite the fact that the costumes are unconventional. Not having a demo prevented me buying from this creator before now. Who knows what I will do next time.
portent Available only till January 10, Zib Scaggs’ latest open gift for Zibska customers is Portent, a set of looooong elegant lashes tipped with birds. The set also includes eyeliner, which Ms. Scaggs has provided in tattoo, CATWA, Lelutka and unisex TMP versions. I have started to wonder just how dizzy Second Life creators get when they offer a multitude of versions. Dizzy or drunk, perhaps. Portia is also wearing a gift from Chop Zuey, a set of beads and single-bead earrings with to-drool-for texture options.
striped kimono I often go to the adult sim Hollowtree to shoot in 8f8’s rare gacha house, which Hollowtree stocks with shibari props. If you want to take pics in an intimate Japanese setting without intimate Japanese rope bondage, you can visit this version of the 8f8 house at Drowsiness.

Camilla in the cold

effin cold n bright Every year I swear that I am not going to freeze my av’s bits off by posing her in a winter wonderland. Then something tempts me into it. This year it’s Nevery Lorakeet’s Camilla for LpD, a classic tweed coat with a full skirt. It’s available in Smoke, Green, Red (shown here) and Prune versions. Each pack contains an indoor dress as well as the coat. Check out today’s last pic for a peek at the Prune dress.

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.
