{ Red Velvet Vixen } NEW Poses from oOo Studio!

“Take your pleasure seriously…”

You know what they say about redheads…  *smirks* okay, normally I prefer the blonder hues (because blondes have more fun, right?), but occasionally it’s fun to channel my inner vixen with some red velvet tresses.  Like a rich decadent cake, that just begs you to have a bite… or several.

Speaking of velvet, oOo Studio has a new set of sultry and seductive poses out for Fifty Linden Fridays called “Velvet” and yes that means you can get an entire set of poses for only $50L.  But that’s today only so you better get a move on if you want them. And I knowwww you want them.

Also.. I have to mention this furniture set I picked up from Abiss.  It’s a gorgeous new collection called Alto and the textures on it are amazing.  That’s truly what sold me when I saw how detailed they were.  Especially the *ahem* sexy black velvet. There are a total of 20 different texture change options and over 200 animations (both PG and Adult).  The set comes with 2 armchairs, 1 sofa, and an accent table.  You can purchase it in store, however, if you’re not wanting to spend the big bucks on the copy versions, you can get the transfer / no copy set on Marketplace right now ON SALE 30% OFF!

Have a luscious weekend!

Mirror_FINAL

November 12th starts another round of GEN-Neutral, an event focused on the blurred lines of gender identity, offering everything from fashion to poses to decor items.  I’m giving you a sneak peek at a new pose prop called “Perception” from oOo Studio that will be available next week.  Sometimes what you see in the mirror looking back at you is more than just what is on the outside.  The wall mirror prop comes with 5 poses (with tall options) and their mirrored reflective poses on the other side.  I hope you enjoy playing with this as much as I did!

{ Alter Ego } Collabor88, Gizza and Belleza!

Alter ego

An alter ego (Latin, “the other I”) (disguised) is a second self, which is believed to be distinct from a person’s normal or original personality. A person who has an alter ego is said to lead a double life.

Greek-AlterEgo_FINAL

In many ways, Second Life itself is a means to providing all of us with an Alter Ego… a chance to express different parts of our personality in the way we interact with others. Perhaps you are more outgoing online, maybe thinner, or a blonde instead of a brunette, maybe you live as a child avatar or a furry, or you are Gorean slave master with a harem of women…or maybe your avatar is the complete opposite gender than you are in your first life.  No matter who you choose to “be” in SL… the beauty is there are no rules.  I live my SL each day how I wish to live it.  I change my hair color, I change my size, I change my style from dark and emo to whimsical and fun.  Sometimes I’m a vampire, sometimes a fairy, sometimes I’m a nudist (some people call that lazy).  Honestly, I enjoy trying out all the possibilities.  I don’t want to be limited to a nicely packaged box.  I don’t want to be predictable.  Real life is limiting enough.

This month’s special Anniversary Collabor88 event is coming to a close soon but if you like anything to do with greek or roman mythology especially pertaining to fashion or home decor… there is plenty to be had.  Get on over to check it out.  With the exception of a few tidbits, all items pictured are from the event.  Both of my alter egos are featuring Belleza‘s beautiful new skin “Grace” that comes in 2 skin tones (medium and tan) and 10 different makeup options… in addition I snuck in a new item from GizzA – the ‘epaulet’ which comes in an amazing array of colors and metal options.

So don’t hold back.. be who you want to be.  Show your light and show your dark.  Variety is the spice of life!

Sands-full_FINAL

So for anyone who’s somewhat aware of the events of Second Life.. This week marks the first week of the June round for The Arcade!  >insert applause and cheering followed by crying over empty pockets<  I must warn you, there is some super cute stuff out there and all I can say is… GOOD LUCK!  I’m showing off the new London Hair from Exile as well as the India skintone of Glam Affair’s Livy Skin both available at Arcade.

But the feature piece I really want to show off is this exquisite necklace from a store called Empyrean Forge that specializes in original, one of a kind, mesh fantasy pieces.  Currently they are only available on Marketplace as they are cranking out new pieces.  I’m sure you will be seeing much more of them in the roleplay / fantasy community events and elsewhere.  Most of their items are HUD color/texture changing for the metals and stonework, allowing you to customize it to whatever look you need.   Definitely go check them out as well as get your bum over to Arcade and have a little fun!  Summer is a comin’!  Happy Shopping! ❤

Warrior-full_FINAL

Welp.  I had meant to blog this a couple weeks ago but got caught up in quite a pile of work and deadlines so this one had to wait.  Although I had the photo done and ready to go… And the inspiration came from the name of the fashion pieces from .Shi at this month’s round of Collabor88.  There was an other worldly element to the breastplate piece that was hard to pinpoint, and I really think it’s a very versatile piece… But for me, I felt a bit of an ancient Greek influence overall, especially once I added in the Gladiator heels from ISON.  Regardless, this look was truly fun for me to put together… to step out of the traditional fashion styles and into something a bit fantasy, a bit historical, and a bit roleplay.  And to still feel powerful and strong yet feminine.  Yep, I think I’ll keep this look… never know when you’ll hear the battle cries.

Daphne_FINAL

For anyone that follows my work (even prior to blogging) they would probably say I have a certain style to my photos.  I am sure most of the time it comes across as more romantic and whimsical (like my last few posts), sometimes sensual.  Not usually edgy.  Although it’s fun to venture outside the box sometimes.  It’s one of the things I like best about Second Life actually: being able to change my style according to my mood or just simply to be different.  I’ve often felt that in my real life I am viewed a certain way… I’m a mom, the good girl, the wife.  I do dishes and laundry and carpool kids to soccer practice.  Yet there is so much more to my interests, my personality, ME… than what everyone sees.  In RL, I can’t dye my hair black and wear leather studded miniskirts when dropping my son off to school (well, I can, but I’m sure I’d get some pretty strange looks, particularly from my 6 year old).   So sometimes I enjoy exploring those not so typically ‘good girl’ sides to myself through my SL.  Because here, I am anything I wanna be.  For the moment.
