Hottie for the hell of it

waiting for the miracle to come Very occasionally I dress Portia up, like she’s a doll and I am a toddler intent on being intent, bringing beauty into the world because I can. I had a strong feeling that Portia should not go to Collabor88 without upping her fashion game. (Not that anyone could see her. Her feet stood next to her a la Magritte, and the torso of her Maitreya body floated around her in some pastiche of Balla and Picasso rehabbing Barbie.) I checked out the 55L sale at Wayne and chose a slinky, high-slit dress for my lady, who rarely works it this hard. She gets naked, outer-spacey and semi-coutureish, but she’s too down-to-earth (or uptight) to turn hottie for the hell of it.

Think galactically

telepathyZib Scaggs is the kind of creator who likes it when her bloggers do odd things with her works. At least I think she is. Today I’ve combined the outsized interlocked rings of the new Titan hairdo with the orbit of another new style, Enceladus. As usual Zib’s hairstyles, like the Alerio set of men’s necklace and cuffs, are colour and size change. A constellation of new ‘dos await you at Hair Fair, where Zib is one of the most charitable creators with a 75% donation to Wigs for Kids.

It happened

restful moment This is one of those posts that’s hiding the very very naughty bits under the cut. It’s also hiding the latest accessories from Zib Scaggs for Zibska. Not to mention an account of what I mean by “it” when I say “it happened.” Continue reading

Eyes enough

eyeing you I think this is my post celebrating the colours of spring. It’s time once again to think about cute bunnies and chicks, chocolate or otherwise. This week I dressed Portia up as a warrior and then decided that she could be any old urban girl momentarily surprised by a giant rat, and not the marshmallow kind. New items in Portia’s wardrobe include the Vykris Corset from Aikea Rieko for The Plastik and the colour-change Echo shorts from Zibska by Zib Scaggs. (A girl needs a battle breastplate and fatigues when she ventures out on garbage night.) One of my favorite new accessories is the array of arrowhead piercings from Alegria, which I picked up at Love and War II. There are spikes in back and a nose-ring too, and the set is available in copper as well as antique silver. It was 30L when I bought it, but that might have been a 30L Saturday price.

Prettiest star

commander Portia was minding her own business. Actually, she was imagining that the Doomed Ship would be far less doomed if she were running the bar. She looked fetching in Zib Scaggs’ new Cynthia dress for Zibska. Suitable for deep space and for an elegant cocktail party, it’s fashioned out of down-filled quilted pleather and festooned with feathers on each shoulder. In back it’s finished with a subtle bustle of black-velvet roses. These are arrayed above what can only be described as an all-access passageway. Find your way into it below the cut. But only if you are not observed by other humans. Continue reading

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.
