Vegas Wedding

Hello Xms 1M_004.png
Pose by #Helloposes “Christmas 1m)

So, isn’t this gown just divine? It’s available by Papermoon Creations at this round of the Dazzle Event.  I’m simply charmed by it, but… I’m not a girl wanting to get married again, and if that special someone does come along, it’ll be at the courthouse.   So, instead of a fantasy story, I thought I’d give a story about my real wedding, in Las Vegas, NV.  My gamble in Vegas may not have paid out in the very end, but I still loved my wedding!  It wasn’t a drunken spur of the moment affair, we had actually planned it there and took 50 of our close friends and family with us.

One of my favorite memories, and indeed my favorite pictures from the wedding are of me walking across the casino floor in my gown to get the chapel.  They are interesting and amusing for a few reasons, people stopping their glassy-eyed stares at the mesmerizing spins of the slot machines to watch my journey, slight smiles on their faces.  Strangers calling out congratulations and well-wishes, including more than a few salty comments.  In the pictures the contrast of the gaudy and bright casino against the elegant white of my gown.  Maybe most memorable of all, was me being proud of the attention rather than the usual embarrassment of a whole bunch of strangers staring at me.

If a picture is worth 1000 words then a 7-second gift should be worth at least 7000.  Everything pictured, with the exception of my ground flowers, makeup, and my jewelry is all included in the package, which sells for 750 lindens.  This includes the base dress, which can easily be worn on its own after the big event.  There’s 2 layers of additional skirt, a beaded and a glitter, both of which have 3 separate layers each; there’s also 2 layers of the veil, glitter and tulle, of which there are front and back pieces; along with the flower crown and flower for the veil attachment, and the bouquet.  Wear it all or mix and match your way into your dream gown.  Still pics just didn’t do justice to how simply gorgeous this dress is, so I hope you enjoy the gif above showing it off a bit. I did decide to show this off in a lovely setting after my casino jaunt.  For some reason, I thought the placement and slight blur of the flowers made me think of Monet, whose paintings I happened to see while on a separate trip to Vegas at the Bellagio.

Pose by HERA “Engagement”  group gift-group 49L to join!

My jewelry just happens to be April’s birthstone, the diamond.  This month’s release of the complete set of birthstone jewelry that Beloved Jewelry is featuring each month.  For this month, the price for group members is just 50L, and non-group members 99L, and the Beloved Jewelry group is FREE to join!  These sets contain 2 bracelets, bento ring (which comes set for right ring attachment but is easily moved to the left with changing attachment point to left right finger and then editing it into the right position), 2 pairs of earrings, hoops and studs, which are perfect for shifting a little for a double pierced look, as well as a choker, and a separate pendant necklace.  The sweeten the pot, there’s also a texture change script for 12 metals options.  I chose to model it in platinum.  All the past month’s birthstones are still available if you missed out, but not at the discounted price.  If you want this complete set of diamond jewelry for only 50L, head down to Beloved Jewelry, join the group (which includes regular gifts via notices) before the end of the month.  Even if you did miss the past deals for your birthstone they are still quite low priced at 125 lindens for group members, and 245 for everyone else.

You may also notice this nail polish which is rather well coordinated with my lipstick.  No, they aren’t actually from the same store, but one is FREE and the only is only 99L in a fatpack of 6 shades. Take a gamble and guess which is which?  If you thought the nail polish was free, you win!  This is a new gift set out at the Free Dove from Main-Pedi.  There is a HUD of 6 shades in the 21st Century  Fun fact about this set, it’s the very first set of polish that Mani-Pedi released!  You can get in a little piece of SL history if you snag this set.  You’ll need the Free Dove group to scoop this up, but the group is FREE to join.  Pro-tip, if you like these shades, subscribe to the Mani-Pedi feed and bi-monthly gifts of new polishes.  If you guessed the lipstick, you still win as 99L for 6 nude lips is a fantastic deal from The Little Black Dress.  In the box are standard tattoo layer, Omega, Catwa, LeLutka, and Areruka appliers.

Oh I just thought this little gif of part of the crew at the Ace Cafe for a DJ’d R&B night just looked too much like an after party for a Vegas Wedding, the non-hotel version that is.  And, of course, more of this fabulous skirt and veil.  Sun-Friday at 2 SLT with either DJ Zef or Dj Elvis.  Great company, great music!

The rest of the wedding was interesting.  No, we didn’t get married by Elvis, we got married in a lovely chapel by a man in a purple velvet robe though!  Elvis was included in the reception, however, with my ex-husband giving a lip-syncing to totally horrid and hilarious Elvis impersonation. Nearly everyone in attendance ended up drawn in by the casino after the reception, and we made a big party around the nickel slots, a good choice since nearly everyone was drunk.  That’s about all that’s really fit to share here on the blog, so I’ll leave you with the usual disclaimer, anything not mentioned in the writing has been blogged before, so consult the style card at the end!

Belle Poses “Liv 3”

I’ve always loved when it’s warm enough to wake up at dawn and step outside and enjoy the still, calm quiet before the world gets busy again.  No tv, no radio, no electronics; just me and a caffeinated beverage and something that stimulates my creativity.  This also means no work documents and no newspaper.  I just immerse in one of those moments where I can simply be human. Which for me, also means staying in my comfy clothes for as long as possible, I think I live for pajama days.  So I have a pretty simple look today, a couple of unique Dazzle Event finds and a few group gifts.

Snapshot_005.png
Freebie Model Pose

This sweet and very comfortably soft shift dress I think is perfect sleepwear or loungewear, but pretty enough that I don’t have to worry about shocking the paperboy while I’m sitting outside while I’m in my usual ratty Dr. Suess micro-fleece.  Ok, maybe that was a bit of fantasy, nowadays the paper deliverers just drive by and toss it with barely a look, but I liked the idyllic picture of the first. In my picture, of course, he was no boy, something more along the lines of Colin Firth.  So yea, a bit of a dream, but rolling out of bed in looking cute enough to impress Colin Firth, that takes something really special, and of course that won’t wrinkle.

The “Betsy Crochet Dress” that I’m wearing is an Exclusive at Dazzle by TRS Designs.  I love how soft it looks, the crochet texture is really lovely with the butterflies and roses worked in a way that certainly appears 3 dimensional. The pink ruffle and bow are semi-sheer adding another element of ultra-femininity.  It comes rigged for Maitreya, both Slinks, all 3 Bellezas, and TMP.  You can only buy it at Dazzle for now, and it has a pretty nice low price at 99 lindens.

Belle Poses “Genji 1L’ – yep a great dollarbie!

 

The Power of Two

I’m actually not talking about coffee, even if it usually takes me 2 cups to get motived for anything! Even though I don’t bring a radio out with me, sometimes feeling music in my head can spur the emotions and pictures in my mind that turn around and weave themselves into a story that I’m writing in my mind.  Works best while my mind is clear and relaxed, and before I sit back down in front of the harsh LED lights of my laptop screen to put all my thoughts and pictures into written form.  What you may not have known about me, is that I not only love music, but I also sing and play when I can.  With a bit of work and regular practice, I can be barely non-offensive when I perform. Never stopped me from loving it though.

Screenshot_10.png

Sharing my love for music in this delicate necklace.  The “Power of Two Necklace” allows me to wear a bit of that love on my person.  Two delicate charms dangle from a double strand of omega chains, one being a single bar of music, and the other a heart created by alto and bass clefs embellished with tiny amethysts.  There was also something really personal, I  happen to sing alto, and so the combination of alto and bass clefs can in a way represent the male and female hearts combining, and the dangling heart with an obvious joining of two halves of a heart also symbolizing this.  The Power of Two necklace can be purchased from Stone’s Works at the Dazzle Display for 225 lindens.

I show off all of my Truth VIP group gifts once I get them, today is no exception, I am charmed by this full and loose French Braid, which of course includes both a style HUD and all of Truth’s colors. The Truth VIP Group is 250L to join.  Also, a group gift, and in true Mixmatchmissy style, I used just the bottoms of a set of pink lacy pajamas that are a group gift at Leronso/Goldie Studios.  These pink shortie pajama bottoms are edged in white lace and fitted for Maitreya, both Slinks, all three Bellezas, and Werewolf.  The Leronso Group is 50L to join, and there are several past gifts available.  My pink fade nail polish is a gift for The FabFree group at Hello Dave!. The palette includes 6 soft spring pastel fades, as you can see I am wearing pink.  The FabFree group is and always be FREE to join!

Missy the Human

Snapshot_1610

On the far away island of Kurkenbrai

Missy the Human was Queen of the Fae

And the beasts, and the people, the plants and the trees

The land was affluent and all lived with ease

Her subjects had everything that they might need

And all were quite happy, quite happy indeed.

Forgive my poor at attempt at Dr. Suess fanfiction, all in good fun! Now, as most every other Dr. Suess story, there is a bit of a cautionary tale, moral, hidden critique of humans woven through Yertle the Turtle. Now, Yertle is a bad turtle king.  Naturally, Missy the Human would be the queen of all queens; and if I were the queen of all I see, I would be in a very high tower of stone, not on the back of my subjects, turtle or otherwise.  Therefore, my fantasy can end without a cautionary tale, as Missy the Queen is practically perfect in every way.  Missy the human also brings you knowledge of several fantastical deals, some quite inexpensive, some not under 100 lindens, but between Missy Math™ and Missy desire, I have quite a bit to show off today, most, however, will be in annotated style card format.

Snapshot_1628.png

Purple is the color of royalty, so when I saw this dress from Moonstar by the Sea as an exclusive at Dazzle, I was taken on this flight of fancy. Most that you see featured from neck to toe is included in the outfit; the necklace, the dress, and the strappy shoes.  The dress is really something special, the texture of the main body is a gorgeous purple with golden flowers, and the edging is done in a subtly animated sparkle. Even with 3 pieces in this set, the price is only 150 lindens, and you know what that means in terms of Missy math since I love to be about that mix & match potential. The Arya Gown comes fitted for Maitreya, both Slinks, all 3 Bellezas with coordinating shoes for each.  Since the shoes are hard to see peeping out from under the floor length skirt, and still photos just do not do justice to the sparkle, I captured a little gif on the graphics settings that I think most likely use for standard play.  There’s also an absolutely fabulous rich jewel emerald green in crushed velvet version of this dress available.

Snapshot_1607.pngI’m falling further and further behind on my blogs this month, so I request your forgiveness that the rest of the post will be in an annotated style card version, with pics of course!

Hair:  Alli & Ali “Serene Hair, Ash” -Blondes pack 250L *I, however, got this as a special dollarbie Promo, which is now no longer listed as such, but was so perfect for my vision that I had to use it.  But here you find my cautionary tale, it’s smart to check the Alli & Ali marketplace store often to watch for these low priced promos! Alli & Ali also has an exclusive this round of Dazzle, so don’t miss that either.

Earrings:  Spyralle-Park Place Store “Talisman of Hope Earrings-Amethyst” -150L

p.s.  There’s also a stunning matching necklace for 200L, and 6 total gem colors in all.

p.p.s. Both were on sale last weekend for just 50L, reason enough to either subscribe to the Spyralle store and get all these sale notices, which includes occasional subscriber gifts, or to join the group for 250L and get all the gifts and perks!

One of the perks of keeping my standard head is that I get to layer lipsticks to get custom colors.  This works best when you use the same designer as they tend to have similar shapes, not always though, so try the demos if you want to simulate this technique. I prefer to add the lightest, most sheer one last to create the best blend.  Oh well, you know, I also did the same thing with my eye makeup!

Lipstick 1: The Little Black Dress “*LBD* Damask Large Supreme Lipstick” which comes in a fatpack with 12 shades, 2 sizes of each shade large and regular, in classic avatar tattoo, omega, akeruka, Catwa, Lelutka – 149L

Belly Jewel:  Beloved Jewelry-Emerald Bay Store“Beloved Jewelry “Mishka Belly Piercing(Texture Change/Pt Mesh)” -part of a complete set of Necklace, bracelets, earrings, and this belly piercing.  It is an older creation of Miss Kimbra’s and has a texture change set that contains less, but different customizable options than the latest texture change C script does. I’m wearing it here in the etched gold 2 and amethyst options.  It’s still fairly sonic drink math worthy though! I’ve mentioned to Kimbra a time or two that I would love to see these etched metals come back in some newer pieces! 425 lindens for the complete set, or between 100 and 185 lindens for individual pieces, this belly ring being 100 lindens.

I had just way too much fun when I designed this scene. I started with a camping scene that’s one of the scenes in my multi-scene skybox rental. I was able to turn off the picnic blanket and tent, just leaving this island with hills, a waterfall, a running stream, and opening to a lake.  Perfect for what I had in mind. Then I went nuts putting out ground cover, long grass, fluffy grass, 3 types of regular flowers, and 3 colors of animated flowers!  Then the animated trees, 3 different types and designers, with of one having multi-colored options. These I will be posting gifs of! All of it built around this Fairy Tale tower.  I’ll probably be repeating this scene again.  Now for the ground covers, I’m not 100% sure what is all actually visible in the entirety of my pictures, but I’m gonna list all that I used.

Grass: Lunaria “.Lunaria. Tall Grass” -25L

Dandelions:  Lunaria “.Lunaria. Dandelion Field” -25L

Multiple Flowers and Fluffy grass:  Lunaria – group gifts/group FREE to join (I literally use these group gifts all the time. There’s the fluffy grass, and 5 separate flowers, there are also trees, bushes, trellises and archways available.)  Great for builders!

Blue Petunias: Sweet Revolutions March Vintage Gacha Gift

Animated Flowers:  Harshlands “[HL] Flower Field” – I used the cyan, mint, and gold, but there’s also a crimson in the box.  Missy math applies! – 4 for 200L make that 50L each!

2f7e2adfebc122315a908e2acdef069d
Still-life pictures simply could not do the things mentioned in this post justice so I have yet another gif for you.

Ice blue lights tree with rotating bubbles: Sweet Revolutions  “~*SR*~ Winters Hollow ~ Lights of Elune cm” past gift at January’s MidWinter Fair

Glitter Trees:  Bad Katz “Glitter Tree Bent” –200L on the marketplace, set of 4 trees, green, gold, blue and red, and I used blue and gold.

Snapshot_1635.png

Now that the last tree that I added and wasn’t part of the original skybox scene, I didn’t do justice to. I actually hurriedly grabbed the above picture for a more focused shot on normal graphics so that I could single it out, but it still doesn’t do it enough justice.  But, there’s always the next post, since I will be using this again as it has poses!  There’s a purple crescent swing chair to sit on.  Sitting there didn’t fit my vision today, but it’s too cool not to use for another photo shoot.  You can snatch a copy of this “= MB = MoonTree in purple, animated” at this round of Dazzle for 125 lindens from MB Content Creators, but no fear, it will be hanging around in the main store for 139 lindens after.  If you visit the main store, you can consider joining the in world group for 35 lindens and keep up with the news and updates, as well as land yourself some regular group gifts.

Tower with Animations:  Exposeur “Fairytale Tower” –300L Marketplace only

So, you’re looking at about 3 days worth of work for me on this post!  Not at all sure if you can tell, but I hope you can, an awesome new friend taught me a few new graphics settings that I think have much improved my pictures, and I can’t help showing off just a little over the journey I’ve made from taking pics on midday setting at 512×512 size! Now, I get to show off just a bit more by showing you some more of the included animations with the tower. No following style card this time, so let me just wish you happy shopping!

 

Modern Witch

 

Snapshot_1587.png
Pose by Hera “Touch”

 

April is just an amazing month for fantasy lovers in Second Life and I am super excited.  Most everyone in the fantasy/roleplay scene knows that the much anticipated Fantasy Faire is coming up in just a few weeks. However, here’s something else, Dazzle is also featuring Fantasies and Dreams in this month’s round!  I know I’m going to be having a ton of fun this month with all these wonderful creations feeding my desire for the mystical, improbable, and creative adventures I crave in my Second Life. So, before I spend much of the month delving more deeply into roleplay, I thought I’d do a little-tongue-in-cheek bit, about what it would be like if, I, Missy, were a modern witch.

Missy the Modern Witch would definitely wear leggings and t-shirts! I’d be the type of witch with an herb garden, and I don’t see me bending in the dirt in some sort of flowy robe. I’d grow herbs (such as basil and parsley) and …herbs.  The ellipses and the italics here making all the difference, whether or not the herb has any natural benefit of its own, the fact that it’s grown in my witches garden would, of course, make them all that much more effective. Or maybe, just because I, as a witch said so. Totally ripping this from Terry Pratchett and how the witches in Discword are so adept at headolgy.  I would be a younger and hotter version of Granny Weatherwax if I were a witch.

 

Snapshot_1586.png
Yep, lol, I did it, two angles of the same bento pose!  It just worked for looking like I was investigating the items on the shelf, sorry not sorry!  Pose, Hera- Touch

Quite magically, I was able to charm the lucky boards at Oubliette to show an M, which netted me this fantastic pair of “Occult Slick Leggings” It may require a bit of patience if your magic isn’t particularly strong that day, but wearers of Maitreya, both Slinks, or all Three Bellezas, who are members of the still FREE to join Petite Mort & Oubliette VIP group can look forward to possibly winning their own pair!

Missy the Modern Witch would also definitely put up with less crap than Missy the mortal woman does.   I guess it doesn’t really require me to be phantasmagorical to practice my bitch craft, which is a skill I only bring out for those who fully deserve it. Which, thankfully for me, is not a skill I practice often, although I have become quite adept at wielding this power when the situation demands, thanks to growing up with older, picky siblings, especially brothers.  This totally amazing tee, which has magically brought me smiles since the day that I found it on a hunt at the Winter Solstice event last winter, is also a group gift at Oubliette!  The “Bitch Craft Tee” comes sized for Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Venus, Isis, and TMP mesh bodies.

 

Snapshot_1574.png

Missy the Modern witch would still wear a black brimmed hat, but mostly just to keep the sun off my pale skin while working in the ….herb garden.  Pointy hats, however, I feel are for Halloween and Fairy Tales so a nice normal floppy hat will do very nicely indeed.  My magic was finally able to overcome the rush at Pr!tty that immediately followed this recent suspension of group fees (still FREE btw!)  I won this “Frost” hair by again charming the lucky board like I did at Oubliette.  Since Missy the Modern Witch is magical, it was easy to strip all the color from my raven locks and rock this brilliant white.  However, you don’t have to possess occult powers to change the colors of your very own Frost hair, as ALL of Pr!tty’s color HUDS are included.  There’s also a skull bandana mask included, if for example, your powers are not yet strong enough to overcome seasonal allergies and your garden requires you to be outdoors!  But, Missy the Modern Witch is definitely not bothered by such mundane things, therefore, I’ve no need to wear it.

 

I Would Always be Dazzling!

Missy the Modern Witch would be, unfortunately, still rather addicted to shopping, especially those exclusive and creative finds that exist. Maybe I could conjur money to spend instead of conjuring items? Even though I do work for the Dazzle event, and therefore have several items passed to me to blog each month.  I do still shop there!  Actually, I went a bit overboard this round, but it was all up my alley, and hopefully, most will be investments in keeping my pics fresh.  I don’t ever want to fall into that rut of everything looking the same, even if I did use the same pose twice this time, sometimes, I guess, the wheel just doesn’t need to be reinvented.  I’m wearing two things from this Dazzle round in this pic, well 4 I suppose if you count the jewelry pieces individually, since they are sold that way, and the fun dark apothecary coffin shelving is also from Dazzle.  Maybe I should leave it a mystery as to which are Missy purchases and which are blogger boxes? I don’t want that to distract from my honest opinions on things, regardless if I spent lindens or not.  Mostly, I buy from Dazzle because I have a personal moral to put my money where my mouth is, and I try to spread those limited dollars around. My, but I am rambling, I guess sometimes I just want to explain why I am a different sort of blog.

Pose by Kokoro “

 

 

So when I did see this Dark Apothecary from MB Content Creators, I totally mentioned to the designer that I found it fun.  She rebutted that it was supposed to be scary! Which caused me to counter with the point of being scared is fun!  I’m still going to stick with fun! Even though, in my opinion, Missy the Modern Witch is far from scary, ok, that’s just because the thought of me being scary period is just laughable.  But, I can still be mysterious.  Plus, I love the idea of throwing in this ancient touch of the unknown and frightening with regards to witches, even if I’m a modern one!  I’m really into the details of this piece too. The textured old wood, the ancient tomes of knowledge, the dodgy looking bottles filled with the distillations of my …herbs.  My favorite aspect though, is the natural elements in the design, especially the flowering ivy with lights.  I’ve always felt that Witches were more masters of the natural world and less about pulling things out of mid-air so to speak.  This Dark Apothecary is exclusive to this round of Dazzle and can be purchased for 200 lindens!  I also want to urge you to go check out the main store, there are some really unique things to check out, and I have my mind on trying out something I”‘ve never encountered before, a mystical experience of lights, of course, once these Spring induced rain migraines and sinus pressure headaches are in the past.  Sigh, for sure, Missy the Modern witch would not suffer from those.

Snapshot_1566.png

My Beloved, Kimbra, designer of Jewelryhas once again released a stunning set of cannatile work! The Thaliana set features these stunning spirals of the fine metal wire with swirls of even finer metal cannatile cascading from the main design.  Even witches in stretch leggings need drama somewhere on their person.  I especially love the huge bento ring, which covers nearly the entirety of my finger. I’m modeling it in pewter and tanzanite, but all the pieces in this 5 piece set, of which I’m modeling only the choker, necklace and ring in this post, have a texture change script for 12 metals and 33 gem choices.  Each piece of the set can be purchased separately for the low price of 50 lindens each, exclusively this month at Dazzle. In case you were confused about what I did there in my first sentence, this is of course about Beloved Jewelry.

Snapshot_046.png

Ok, I will admit, my last Dazzle detail wasn’t a blogger box, and thank goodness because I got zero good pics of it! It’s been a long time since I bought myself a new manicure, and I will admit it’s mostly laziness, it’s too easy to just pick something from my hands and feet utility hud (and then I don’t have to write about it either, *blush*.)  But I rather liked the exclusive from Mani-Pedi at this round.  I snagged it, as it’s full of those things that catch my eye, sparkly, jewel tones, multicolored and unique.  To purchase from the Mani-Pedi Stall touch the item, then chose which hud you’d like either Maitreya, Omega, or Slink, and then click again to pay.  This Dreamscapz set comes with 6 options in the color palette and sells for 70 lidens.

OH, But the Shoes!

I bet you didn’t know that Missy the Modern Witch traveled back in time and subconsciously influenced Dalriada of MOoH to give out 150L gift cards as a gift each month did you?  Oh, but I did, so that when I then consciously joined the group, and consciously started this blog, I could use that gift card to buy whatever I desired then blog it using magical Missy Math to get each item under my definition of cheap!  Anyway, I had to have these “Poppy” Tip Toe Ballerina shoes, they are 199 lindens, but with my monthly VIP gift card, I got them for 45!  The shoes come rigged for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink and there’s a really big hud to customize various areas of the shoes. There are other benefits to the MOoH! group of course, all of which I have talked about a bunch!  The group is 100L to join.  If you head down there, don’t forget the two hunt items which are hidden, one of which is the “Missy” sweater from the Grow Your Awareness Hunt.  I just love that name, don’t you?

Missy the Modern Witch would be much like the real me, in that I believe in reusing and recycling, therefore, there are several other little details in this blog that have been seen and blogged before, sometimes all the time.  Which leaves me to sign off the usual advice, anything not written about has been blogged before and the credits are listed in the style card.

Atlanta Beach Pie

 

Snapshot_1510.png

Atlanta beach pie does me make do a happy dance, and no it’s not a lemon merengue. Honestly, I really didn’t make this pie up just to do pie puns, although it does open the door, which I will boldly march through.  Atlanta Beach Pie is a real thing, and it will make you say oh my.  It’s this absolutely heavenly mix and sweet and salt and bright and rich, and, well, I’ll just direct you to the recipe. It’s one thing I miss about living in North Carolina that’s for sure when I didn’t have to make it myself when I had a craving.  What does Atlanta Beach Pie have to do with Second Life Fashion?  The beach and the pie of course!  I just happened to link you a delicious recipe as a bonus.

Pie-Dyed

Anyway, food dreams aside, one of the first things I do when I log in on Friday is to check my Fly Buy Friday’s HUD.  Please note that the marketplace link only works during an active sale, so if you see this after Sunday, you’ll have to go into a participating store and subscribe for next week!  But trust me you really want a piece of this action. If it wouldn’t hurt the fillings of all the other great designers who participate in this sale, I would have been disappointed that it wasn’t Pie Buy Fridays because honestly, I rarely miss a weekend when Pink Cream Pie is participating, and that’s what I call it in my head anyway.  This week’s offerings are exclusive tie versions of one of my favorite original mesh tanks, the Lucy Tank.  I limited myself to just one, the Jolly Rancher Tie Dye, but there are 10 color variations available, or if you can’t pick, you can get all 10 in one HUD for 500L.  The Lucy Tank comes sized for Maitreya, both Slinks and all 3 Bellezas.

Pie Got Lucky!

It’s been a few weeks now But Petite Mort and Oubliette VIP groups formed into one group and moved to a new gorgeous sim, Witchwood.  Even better is that the new group is still FREE to join!  I had to pay 75 lindens back in my day to join just Petite Mort, so this is a great time-limited deal.   However, both stores still have lucky boards and the new consolidated group gets you access to both sets.  I won these Medium Wash Flap Pocket Denim shorts off of a lucky board on the Petite Mort side.  They also come sized for Maitreya, both Slinks, and all 3 Bellezas.

Another Free Group?!

No matter how you slice it, two groups who normally have fees to join being mentioned in the same post is pretty great news.  Pr!tty currently has suspended their group join fee.  This super cute windblown precision bob, Demy, is 1 of 5 group gifts that are available.  There is also an optional bangs in the pack that I opted not to wear.  This and all the other group gifts include all of the color HUDs.  Additionally, there are several group lucky letter boards to try your hand at, the store was really busy when I went in and I didn’t win any yet, but it’s on my list of things to go back to!

Snapshot_1509.png

Gotta Keep the Sun Out of My Pies

I found these unisex glasses on the Marketplace from the Cremosas store for just 100 lindens.  They have a hud of 50 colors, a resize pair (that doesn’t go very small, I’m wearing them on min size) and you can edit the color on the texture screen.  I did edit them via select face and added black to make them sunglasses. But 100 lindens for such a good and versatile pair of eyewear is still a great find!

I guess my pie puns definitely were a bit crusty this time, I know I used that before, but this time I really mean it! This time my nut filling was definitely oozing out.  They still suck?  I guess it’s time to eat my humble pie and end this post, with the usual disclaimer.  Anything not discussed has been blogged before, consult the style card at the end!

Where is Spring?

 

Snapshot_1494

 

Pose by Kokoro -Group Gift “Luck”.  I’m either crossing my fingers that Spring will actually come soon, or I’m flipping off the snow, depending on how closely you look at it.  However, both apply!

The first day of Spring has passed, but it sure doesn’t feel much like it, especially for those on East Coast getting hammered by these Nor’Easters.  Still slipping into my warm clothing so I don’t freeze my tuckus off. So even though I’ve been dreaming of Spring quite often in Second Life, today I felt a bit like keeping the chill off.  I’ve got a lucky board item that anyone can snag, a group gift, and a new-me discount hair from Truth to show off today.

 

It’s well known that I spend quite a bit of time down at Sn@tch fishing, rioting, shopping, some hunts, events, basically just everything.  So I’m usually around to snag the lucky boards when the M pops up.  There’s 10 there and you don’t need to join the group to win them, and as a bonus, they are located right next to the riot vends, so if you get double lucky you may get in on one where we hit rock bottom and walk away with a ton of FREE and cheap snags.  Or, finally buy that 7 seas fishing pole, and real in whatever the custom prizes are that day (changed every 2 weeks) while watching the boards, and the riot vends!

Snapshot_1482.png

I won this “Willora Argyle Dress” on one of those Sn@tch filled days.  It comes with a HUD to choose 1 of 8 of for the colored diamonds. There’s a few sizes in the box:

  • Standard Sizes XS-L (alpha if needed)
  • Slink – Hourglass and Physique
  • Maitreya
  • Belleza
  • TMP

Snapshot_1487.png

There’s really not a whole lot to say about the rest, basically because I’ve covered both Truth and Earthstones so many times, even if the chosen items today are new to the blog.  My boots are unavailable, and my makeup has all been blogged before, so I guess today’s look is pretty much yawn city as far as writing about it goes, looks great on though!  I’ll cut it short and leave all the rest of the details in the style card!

Schlemiel, Shlimazel!

Snapshot_1353.png
Sugar Bowl set and poses by Exposeur

In case you were ever wondering what the seemingly nonsense are in the Laverne & Shirley theme song, they are actually Yiddish. Shlemiel meaning a stupid, awkward, or unlucky person, and Shlimazel being a close synonym at a consistently unlucky or accident-prone person.  I love that show, I remember watching reruns as a kid, and always laughing.  Even though Shirley always had Carmine as a boyfriend, it always seemed an immature relationship, even to me as a kid. Of course, that immaturity was very obvious with Shirley’s attachment to Booboo Kitty. Fun fact about Booboo Kitty’s origin.  It was originally a blooper, when Cindy Williams forgot her line about dust bunnies, and pulled out a stuffed cat from under the bad and called it the name of her mother’s cat, Booboo Kitty.  Everyone loved it and it eventually turned into Shirley having an actual relationship with the stuffed toy.  Not that Booboo Kitty wasn’t awesome, it was.  Gotta love this commercial of Shirley and Booboo Kitty from Nick at Night!

Really Rockabilly!  Has a recent release, I would say new, if I hadn’t been a Shlemiel and got it blogged earlier! These hot little shorts and bustier in a fantastic black and pink design are covered with Booboo kitties!  The matching mesh scarf is included.  It comes in tons of sizes:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink -Physique and Hourglass
  • Tonic Fine and Curvy
  • Belleza -Freya, Isis, and Venus

I totally love it!  I’ve been waiting for a great summer Rockabilly look, and of course, always love anything whimsical.  Zef Brody, the owner, and designer for Really Rockabilly always teases me about my breast size, and I remembered the above commercial from Nick at Night long ago, with Shirley stuffing her dress, and while mine isn’t stuffed, sometimes I feel people view my avatar that way!  FYI, Really Rockabilly! is a designer for the Grow Your Awareness Hunt that I am organizing for April.

Snapshot_1358.png

My shoes I’ve blogged before, and I think I remember mentioning that the Alyce Slink Mary Jane’s had an RGB hud that is included as well as the HUD of colors and patterns.  If I didn’t then I was remiss, they have it!  Zef was kind enough to give me the RGB for the pink in the Booboo kitty outfit design so I was able to perfectly match these fun retro shoes.  That RGB is red 185, green 68, blue 89, hue 349, sat 46, lum 50.  Of course, I picked the black laces and heels on the hud, as the choice was either black or white, no rgb here.

My hair is unavailable, I picked it up as a gift at an event last winter, and couldn’t find it in the store or mp, and a notecard to the designer remained unanswered. It was a blonde hair, but I wanted to note that Tameless often allows hair to be colored via the edit screen so I was able to choose black and transform the blonde into my usual color.

Snapshot_1377.png

Everything else, except my glasses, has been blogged before, and I want to talk about my glasses.  I started an in-world group for my blog, for chat, sharing of freebies and deals, and a little clubhouse.  In the clubhouse, I have set up a photo booth, with colored lights, 3 different spotlights to make those fun shadows that turn off and on, and a pose stand with over 300 poses.  Additionally, if you ask in chat, there’s a sits and a stands pose stand that myself can help you with if needed for some pics!  All the information for the Grow Your Awareness Hunt is located here, along with group joiners for a few groups that specialize in freebies that I discuss, such as FabFree and The Free Dove. But the best part is that I designed these special shiny mauve glasses, with metal studs as a group gift.  Hop down to Missy’s Getaway, enjoy the furniture, the photo studio, and pick up these glasses for yourself!  They are copy and modify so you can get the perfect shape, or shade them darker if you wish.  The group is FREE to join, making the glasses FREE, and the use of all 300+ poses for your pics FREE!  Now there’s no excuse not to head down to The Free Dove, pick out an outfit, head to my photo studio and snap a pic and post it to my Facebook and get a care package from me!

Anything We Want

Snapshot_004.png

My scars were reflecting the mist in your headlights
I looked like a neon zebra shaking rain off her stripes
And the rivulets had you riveted to the places that I wanted you to kiss me when we find some time alone

Fiona Apple –Anything We Want from the Idler Wheel album

Maybe I’m a bit overly deep today. I actually attempted to make a metaphorical look!  Since blogging and sort of immersing myself in The Zebra Revolution theme at this month’s Dazzle, this wistful Fiona Apple song keeps running through my head, it’s a beautiful song, you should google it.  The song to me, makes me think of a friend, a friend one has been in love with since childhood, he or she keeps rejecting the signals that signify that a deeper relationship is desired.  Each rejection piles up, forming scars that we feel are highly visible to any who see us, especially the desired lover. However, we care too much to lose them from our lives, so we take the friendship regardless of the pain. My little spin is that maybe we attempt to hide our scars by a brightness that we don’t feel.  Are you shocked that I can reflective instead of just silly?  I do generally keep a light and bright style on my blog, and while this look itself is light and bright,  the mood I want to convey is how we hide our pain, maybe accept more than we should, by staying that bright and happy person we don’t feel is really ourselves, but what we want to be, while remaining convinced that everyone can see through the act to the scars underneath.

Snapshot_027.png

I want to start with the hair by Ali & Ali. It’s actually a FREE gift, it was my job to blog the exclusives!  I didn’t even realize until just now either (this is what I get for being deep instead of funny.)  But, I’m going to roll with it, as I feel this tousled bob shows off the chaotic nature of our emotional scars.  I think the brain is where most of us have the most scars.  Even if I unintentionally goofed by filing this in the wrong spot in my folders, the texture is exactly what all the exclusives contain, and there are several styles available to best meet your own desired look.  I’m posting the booth so you can see for yourself how many are available, and hopefully, I’ll be able to blog at one more!  There are styles for men and women available, and for this unique, punky look they are really low priced at 50 lindens each.  There is a resize script included, and you can adjust the color of the white stripes via edit menu.  You can find the Ali&Ali stall along the row to the left of the entrance.

Snapshot_059.pngSince I just did a close up on my face to show off the hair, I’ll go ahead and explain my makeup choices now. My eyeshadow with liner is a current dollarbie at Dulce Secrets.   “::DS:: Deep Embrace Abyss Eyeshadow”.  This is a super fantastic dollarbie, as it has all 6 shades in the Embrace Abyss Eyeshadow set, as well as a ruby lipstick.  There are standard tattoo layer, Omega, Catwa, LeLutka appliers in the package.  I liked how it looked like single tear may have escaped and been caught.  For my lips, I chose from the Elise “Nocturne” palette.  I went with the bright blue (Nocturne #4) because it is our mouths that most often put out that false brightness.  There are 6 shades in the palette, and I blogged the silver one here.  The entire set comes with standard tattoo layer, Omega, Catwa, LeLutka, and TMP huds, and costs only 45 lindens.

Snapshot_020.png

My outfit is also another moderately priced grab from Dazzle!  This bright and wild outfit from Salty! includes both the leggings (which by the way come with an omega applier HUD of 4 bright colors if you don’t like the blue) and the loose and flowy tanktop complimented with a zebra print ribbon under the bust. The tank comes in 5 standard sizes, Maitreya, both Slinks, and all 3 Bellezas. The low price tag comes in at 75 lindens!  I have to point how the zebra ribbon under the bust reminds me of the scars on our hearts, and the contrasting leggings our struggle between pain and happiness, but how we’re actually both. Just to let you know, Salty! is the latest generous designer to sign up to be in the Grow your Awareness Hunt that I am organizing next month!

Snapshot_046.png

Once again, Dazzle played right into my metaphorical look.  I’m wearing the Beloved Jewelry “Animal Choker” and “Animal Cuff Bracelets”  They are sold separately with a low price tag of 50 lindens each.  Additionally, they come with a texture change script, allowing you to customize between 12 different metals, 7 colors for the faux fur, and 33 accent gems. Beloved Jewelry was one of the original designers who agreed to commit to the Grow Your Awareness Hunt, and helped give me the confidence I needed to approach other designers. I chose to display the bracelets in both the zebra and the light, because the placement of them is where we would apply perfume, and thus the image we project both intentionally and unintentionally eventually reveals the whole person we are, both with darkness and light. As perfume only masks a smell.

On my left, I also stacked the bracelet with some bangles that are included in the FREE gift set out by Moonstar By the Sea at Dazzle.  I had plans to blog the dress, but Aline of FabFree beat me to the punch.  You can head over to the FabFree blog and see the dress here.

Snapshot_015.png

We’ve made it all the way down to my feet!  We’re almost to the end.  These adorable retro pumps with ankle straps are a FREE gift at The Little Black Dress, along with 8 other fantastic gifts, and the group is FREE to join!  The Little Black Dress is the third designer in this post that is joining the GYA hunt as well! These great little shoes come rigged for Slink High, Maitreya, and TMP.  I chose these zebra print shoes to work in my metaphorical look, as the foundation of many of our personalities is the scars and experiences that shape our lives.

Exposeur’s 50 linden marketplace sale is still ongoing. I snagged this dark alley that comes with 20 poses and mirrors (all of the poses in this blog are from this set, I didn’t add in any extra this time.)  I wanted to show that we usually view ourselves, both the good and bad with tunnel vision, and chose a windlight that added the soft glow at the end of the tunnel (haha you know, the light at the end of the tunnel?)

Whoever thought of poetry in clothing? I’m sorry for being so deep and metaphorical, but I hope it helped improve the look rather than detract from it.  It also helped that Dazzle has the zebra theme this month, so it was basically a one stop shop!  That’s always nice not to have to pop all over Second Life for a single look.  What’s not spoken about has been blogged, so consult the style card!

We started out sipping the water
And now we try to swallow the wave
And we try not to let those bastards get us down
We don’t worry anymore cause we know when the guff comes we get brave
After all, look around
It’s happening, it’s happening, it’s happening now

Silver Fish

 

Snapshot_1186.png
Exposeur’s Marketplace Sale was still on as a few minutes ago!  I snagged this simple shadow box with 10 poses and mirrors for just 50L!

 

Hello, lovelies!  Today I thought I’d bring you an eclectic assortment of ways to achieve the goodness I’m showing off, a unique event find, some limited time deals, some will remain as is for longer, but all showcasing black and silver, one of my favorite combinations!  I’ve also been brainstorming a way to better combine some of my happily accepted blogging duties with the core reason for my blog, which is showing complete looks with lots of free and inexpensive items.  Although admittedly I will stray from time to time because I adore something,  or it’s a roleplay look, or I find that things that aren’t free or cheap just compliment the look to meet my vision of it.   This post, however, does contain a fantastic and not under 100L event item, as well as the great freebies and inexpensive items I’ve become known for.  There’s a group gift, a lucky letter, a subscriber gift, a Sn@tch fishing find, as well as a sale!  Lots of information coming, but there’s not a thing in this post that I don’t love! So no skipping around allowed! (Evil laugh, I’m just kidding…aren’t I?)  So without further ado…

Dazzling Fish

Have you ever just sat back on the edge of a lake, or out in a quiet boat and just watched the fish swim and jump?  I love how the reflective properties of the scales as they hit the sunlight make the fish resemble glistening jewels.  I was quite a bit of a tomboy as a kid, and loved fishing, and still find it relaxing and meditative when I just need a break from it all.  More than the sparkle, maybe it’s the yin-yang design of the chasing fish in the pendant on this necklace from Stone’s Works that calls forth those peaceful moments.  I also really like the wide, chunky chain that this beautiful pendant is showcased on.  The Pisces Zebra Fish Necklace is an exclusive at this round of Dazzle for 199 lindens.  It’s only available until the 25th of March, so hop on the limo I just linked and head down and see this unique necklace in person.

Snapshot_1252.png

Speaking of fish, these earrings are in Sn@tch’s latest fishing prize batch.  This time the Fish-4-This is “I’m in the Little Balck Dress”  The entire set contains 6 mesh dresses stockings, necklace, earrings, boots and a few shades of hair.  Each piece, including left and right earrings as well as the boots, is fished up individually, making this time 22 unique items.  Fishing at Sn@tch and other sims with 7 Seas Fishing content requires a 7 Seas fishing pole, the casual rod can be purchased for 100 lindens and there’s a vendor for it right near the pond at Sn@tch.  However, once you make this initial investment everything you fish up from then on out is FREE.

Snapshot_1225.png

Very few people like the eat the skin of fish, even if it is prepared properly crispy.  Thank goodness my new skin from Dulce Secrets isn’t fish skin! The current group gift is this “Sose Skin” in the Quinoa color.  I love how soft and natural it looks with pale pink makeup added.  There’s system layer, Catwa, LeLutka, and Omega appliers included.  There are options for push up cleavage, or no, and a choice of black, brown, blonde, ginger, or no eyebrows included. If you like the Sose skin but think it’s too pale, which is perfect for me! There’s a darker “Oat” Version of the skin as a gift for the Weekly Limited group.  Both the Dulce Secrets and the Weekly Limited groups are FREE to join!

Snapshot_1234.png

Not fishy, but has that sparkle like the sun on fish, this dress from Chic Moda is a current lucky letter prize for group members!  Although I didn’t think to stop out of the shadow box to show the entire length of this long fitted gown, it does reach the floor.  As it goes with everything I’ve bought or been gifted from Chic Moda this gown is also extremely well-rigged, and textured.  I adore the fastenings detail on the back, making it very realistic.  This is a great store for original mesh, with a super nice and fun designer at the head!  The Chic Moda group is 50L to join, and there are several past group gifts available. Not to mention that they participate in my favorite sale of the week, Fly Buy Fridays!  The clothes, including this dress, are generally rigged for Maitreya, Slink Hourglass, and Physique only.  Some are Maitreya only, but she’s been updating them to include Slink bit by bit (also allows us to vote on the next upgrade!)

Believe it or not, I’m actually making fish for dinner, for some reason I had a craving…. It’s nearly done, just in time too, as everything else I’m wearing has been previously blogged!  Check the style card for all the details!
