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.

Share the love

bunny at bat Valentine’s Day is guaranteed to make even a happily married couple miserable. Only singles in the very first flush of love could enjoy the mountain of bouquets I encountered this afternoon at Whole Foods. It looked like the (pesticide-free) funeral for the entire human race. While I would rather see marriage abolished than extended to everyone, I hereby dedicate this post to equal love and sex rights for all. (A cut is coming. That means the rest of this post might exercise too many rights for the office.) 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.

See the light

ridic circus girl

What motivated me to get bright and light I do not know. Perhaps it’s my way of pulling out of some seasonal affective disorder that saw me going to bed at 7 or 8 pm and sleeping twelve hours. I am now putting on lots of lights in my home, even though I hate to waste energy. And I have rediscovered some of the evening pleasures I lost hold of in the past few weeks. I still prefer to watch TV on demand in the morning. But I found my way back to blogging. Today I want you to feast your eyes on Anka, the ringling and jingling colour-change necklace new from Zib Scaggs of Zibska. Also note the new hair from Moon, which is 50% off while the in-store sale lasts.

bright sunshiney day No. 7 creator Shortcake Sugarplum wears Glam Affair skins, so I thought I would do an homage to showcase her new metal-and-gem colour-change lashes. The leaf-shaped Changing Season lashes tumble gracefully from eye to shoulder. Don’t forget to check out alternate shots on the Pleisure Flickr.

Up and down

poole I once stood like this to charm a cat. I wasn’t wearing a couture hat by Zib Scaggs for Zibska. All I had was a ponytail sprouting from the top of my head. It moved with me as I bent over to attract a cat famous for evading housesitters. Instead of going into the room and trying to drag her out from under a dresser, I maintained a respectful distance, standing just beyond the threshold in the hallway and, bent and bouncing my ponytail, talked to her in baby talk: “yoo ook sho shilly hiding undah thair, yesh, yoo doo, yoo doo.” No response, not even an involuntary one. But after a few days of these occasional visits and casual greetings when I left and returned home, she came out of her lair and turned into a very good companion, sitting at the end of the couch with me any time I watched TV and in the in-bin when I worked at the desk.

Dual Dido

lounging Jewelry Fair, which opens on September 13, is the place to go if you find yourself lusting for Zib Scaggs’ latest big bad Zibska baubles. Today I decided to break the new Dido set of hat and collar to create two looks. One for haute couture, seen here. One for humiliation, located under the cut. All of Ms. Scaggs’ pieces are colour change, but I gravitate to her charcoal-black because it’s dramatic and I’m moody. I am also a fan of Marni, The Skinnery’s Arcade gacha item, which I’ve seasoned with a generous sprinkling of hot freckles from Milk. If you don’t like your virtual life spicy, don’t venture under the cut. Continue reading
