{ Kept } Sneak peek at Enchantment!

The upcoming round of Enchantment is themed on “Neverland” thanks to the latest in a plethora of Peter Pan movies, “Pan”, that is out in theaters now.  And this is definitely one that blends well into the roleplay and art culture of Second Life, with fairies and pirates and mermaids and flying boys… How can you not be inspired??

Tinkerbell, Peter Pan’s pixie dust sprinkling sidekick, has always been particularly near and dear to my heart as she was my first favorite “character” as a child.  I used to spend hours drawing pictures of Tink and imagined being her and wrote stories about her.  It wasn’t until later in my life that I actually discovered a bit more about her from a Disney fanatic friend, that Tink was in fact…. a VILLAIN.  Yes, that’s right.  Cute, adorable, sweet Tink .. is actually considered one of the bad guys. Why? Because she’s apparently quite a sassy little thing and though small, she can put up quite a fight, and also happens to be quite jealous to the point of actually trying to have Wendy killed.  My love of Tink only grew after that.  So to do her honor I made this my first pic in a series of Neverland-ish photos to come…

FairyForest_FINAL

The Gacha Garden meets We<3Roleplay in today’s post for you guys!  It’s been a few days because this one took a bit more work to put together, but I hope you like the results!  I truly enjoy getting to do fantasy themed pics and although the We<3RP event is obviously geared for that genre.. I was excited that there were also quite a few items at The Gacha Garden this round that would also be fun for some roleplay!  Astralia is fast becoming one of my favorite creators for flowery fantastical goodies, as you can see by this gorgeous Fairy Huntress outfit!  Azuchi is also doing really well and popping up in more events, with such rich textures like that of this Archer’s outfit, you really have to see with your ambient lighting on to appreciate how magnificent they look.

Both events are still going strong through the rest of this month so get on over to hunt for your favorite fantasy items!

P.S. if you thought you were seeing things, no, those are indeed cat/owls in the trees. Yay for imagination!

(I wonder if they hoot or meow.)

 WhiteRoom-close_FINAL

[Zerkalo] has been going full on with white styling of decor and furnishings lately with its releases across the grid at varioius events right now and it’s perfect as a nice clean palette to start from and fill in with various neutrals in darker tones for contrast.

Britain Knave-Kennedy of Kennedy Interiors, who is a huge inspiration to me in the home decor realm of SL and Flickr, has really helped me think out of the box when mix and matching certain items and modifying things to change up their uses.  She is also quite known for her love of ‘white’ decor and has done absolutely breathtaking interiors with it.

If something is modifiable, use that to your advantage when decorating!  It takes some getting used to to start to see all the possibilities, but once you do, you’ll be amazed at what you can come up with!

{ House that Built Me }

I know they say you can’t go home again.
I just had to come back one last time.
Ma’am I know you don’t know me from Adam.
But these hand prints on the front steps are mine.
Up those stairs, in that little back bedroom
Is where I did my homework and I learned to play guitar.
And I bet you didn’t know, under that live oak
My favorite dog is buried in the yard.
I thought if I could touch this place or feel it
This brokenness inside me might start healing.
Out here it’s like I’m someone else,
I thought that maybe I could find myself
If I could just come in I swear I’ll leave.
Won’t take nothing but a memory
From the house that built me.

{ It’s my party and I’ll cry if I want to }

It’s the best day… It’s the worst day.  Yep.. it’s my birthday.  In RL that is, and I’ve gotten to that point where each year is more bittersweet than the last.  Where the number betrays me because my mind still tells me I’m 25 yet standing next to my growing kids in a grocery store gives me away.  (“Oh you mean those kids? No, they’re not mine. haha!”) I’ve actually NOT gotten carded buying alcohol *gasp* these days.  And hell yes, I’m offended!  D:  So yup, I’m gonna pout and throw myself a little birthday pity party via my photos today.  😛

And it’s ok, you can poke fun at me, the ol’ lady who just turned 38, too! 😉 ❤

{ My Yearbook Photo } Smile Challenge Meme

Strawberry Singh‘s back to doing her Monday Memes and I’m so glad I’m able to participate in one again.  I admit this one was pretty easy and straightforward and well, just plain fun!   All I had to do was bare my pearly pixel teef and snap a photo!  But it did take me back a bit to those days… picking out that perfect outfit you were going to wear for your school picture, thinking about how you’d wear your hair and trying to keep it perfect for picture time with an entire can of hairspray, pre-picture angst over that surprise pimple that would be captured for all eternity in your yearbook photo, and whether to smile with or without teeth, or not smile at all because.. well.. you know some teeth should remain hidden.

Yearbook_FINAL

The default SL avatar has a notoriously creepy looking smile most of the time.. erring a bit on the side of psychotic.  Thus came along many different alternatives to creating a ‘smile’ from teeth/alphas to an actual mesh mouth or in my case here, a mesh head that has several different expressions to choose from.  The mesh head I’m using is from Slink, called “Visage” and comes in 2 different shape styles: Emma and Becky. They’ve been around for quite a while now, however, not too many skinners in SL actually carry appliers for them. With so many mesh parts on the market, I think that skin creators just have their hands full keeping up.  This is the first skin I’ve ever purchased from Deetalez and I was quite pleased with how it turned out on the mesh head.  In the past I’ve used appliers from Glam Affair (here), Pink Fuel (here) and also from Izzie’s (here). The Mesh Project has had a lot of success with their mesh heads from what I’ve seen, but they also come at a much higher price.  At this point I haven’t been ready to spend that much to try one. The fun part about mesh heads is definitely the variety of facial expressions.  Some might say I cheated to achieve the more attractive looking smile for my yearbook photo, but I would say I was being resourceful :P.

TeachersPet_FINAL

And since we were on the topic of school, GizzA has just released a couple very cute and very plaid dresses that seemed to go right along this theme. I thought I’d get myself into double trouble and head on over to the location from this past weekend’s party at Elysion (an adult sim): “Fast Times at Elysion High”.  The amount of detail Syn puts into her themed party builds always amazes me and with a little PS magic I was able to put myself (twice) right back there for some afterschool extracurriculars… *ahem!* I mean… extra credit! I have always been a bit of an overachiever. Hehe.

Well if you want to join in the fun, definitely go check out Berry’s Yearbook Flickr Group and feel free to add your own smiley snapshot!  Stay cool and see ya round the halls. ❤
