{ Rosie Cheeks } Shoetopia Preview!

Panties_Rockabilly Hey there cool cats… I’m still having too much fun playing around with this rockabilly look but I’m changing it up a little this time…getting a little more Betty Paige sexy and throwing in a modern twist with these hot newly revamped Bax Coen boots that are coming soon to the Shoetopia Event that opens this Friday, November 15th!  I love that these updated Regency boots have the gradient options to make things a little edgier as well as color change options for the soles/heels.  They really were the perfect boot to pair with my outfit.  Panties are an outfit aren’t they??  I mean, afterall, these panties from DRBC are sexy, flirty, rocker with ruffles kind of awesome.  The tattoo, which I first showed off in my previous post, as you can see has a very detailed full back and includes all the appliers for Lolas and Phat Azz as well as every layer you could want or need in a tat.  I’m also using once again oOo Studio’s new “Candy” poses that are inspired by vintage pinup models and meant for you to show off your sexy footwear. Keepin it simple, Daddy-O… I have so many more fantastic shoes to show you, I gotta get back to work!  But don’t forget to mark your calendar… you won’t wanna miss it!  Not to mention, help support SOLES4SOULS, a wonderful charity that is providing relief to the typhoon victims in the Phillipines.  Hope to see you there!

{ Born to Rock n Roll n Ride } Rockabilly Fashion Fair, Belleza, and oOo Studio Newness!

Rockabilly_full

There is something about doing vintage style photos that totally excites me.  There is such a strong personality that comes across even in some of the everyday fashion styles from the 50s.  Maybe that’s due to watching too much “Happy Days” as a kid, that any guy with a leather jacket and jeans and white t-shirt with slicked up hair had to be as cool as “the Fonz”, or the pony-tailed girl in a poodle skirt and saddle shoes was most likely your sweet sisterly type… the emergence of rock n roll really didn’t discriminate between cool kids and all-american sweethearts though, nor did it matter if you were city-folk or country bumpkins.  There was a bit of an amalgamation of music styles as rock n roll was infused with southern country or bluegrass and came to be known as “Rockabilly”.  And it’s popularity was catapulted by the likes of Johnny Cash, Elvis, and Carl Perkins.  Rockabilly encompasses much more than a music genre though… it’s a statement of style.  Rebellious in nature, for the wilder ones, daring colors and more form fitting outfits for the ladies… making for a much racier pinup style that was quite appealing to the hot rodders of the day.

I can’t say I disagree… It’s still very appealing all around.  Classic sexy styles, high on bold prints and colors, feminine flair, with a hint of badassery.  And music that begs for you to get up and Do Wop is alright with me!  I love that SL celebrates this retro era with so many awesome designers in world putting out great vintage goodies…and right now you can find many of them at the Rockabilly Fashion Fair which is in full swing and will continue until November 23rd.  I am featuring the Belleza special edition Ava skin for this event as well as some new pinup poses coming out at oOo Studio later this week called “Candy“.

I think you’ll find plenty of sassy items over at the Fair to rev your engines…So make sure you cruise on over there and check it out before this chop shop is closed.

{ Like a Virgin } My 10 SL Firsts Meme

 Retro80s-full_FINAL

This is a blog about firsts and it’s fitting that this is actually the very *first* blog meme I’ve participated in as well (So thank you very much Strawberry Singh for being my First)!  I was rather stoked that it coincided with some rather cool 80s throwback charm jewelry by (Yummy) released at Collabor88 this round  that totally inspired me to do a full on set from the era of my youth.  I hope those of you that grew up in the 80s can appreciate the nostalgia going on in here.  I fully admit to having far too much fun putting it all together and was amazed at all the awesome retro stuff out there in SL (in mesh even!). I could have totally kept going but resisted on account of it turning out to look like a scene out of “Hoarders” 1980 style.

Retro80s-close_FINAL

And so without further ado… Let’s go back in time to my virginly days in SL and I’ll tell you a little about my 1st experiences.  No judging allowed! LOL

  1. First SL Friend: Pixie, I met her on Help Island my first day in SL and we went through all the tutorials together and then ventured into the great unknown of the metaverse.  We stayed friends for a few years even through many weddings and lots of drama, but ultimately we grew apart.
  2. First SL Kiss: Pixie LOL (I was experimenting!! and welp, someone had to hop on those poseballs with me!)
  3. First SLex time/place/partner: uh… yeah I think I will refer to question #2. and it was on a piano. 😛
  4. First SL Partner/Girlfriend/Boyfriend/Wife/Husband: I have only ever had one partner in SL and his name is Bio Flow.  I met him my first month in SL at Sweethearts Jazz Club and when I found out he was Aussie, I might’ve got a wee bit excited thinking about his accent.  But we were together in SL for 3.5 years (which is like 35 years in SL) and did the whole big wedding thing, and even a vow renewal after some rocky times.
  5. First SL Job: My first official job which I usually dismiss was as a store model for Damage Clothing… I basically stood on some sexy pose stand wearing their clothes and talking to people that came in the store.  It was crap for money and didn’t last long.  I moved onto being a Hostess at Sweethearts and then to being a Photographer.
  6. First SL Creation: A pillow.  And I remember it was fugly but functional. I even learned how to add a sit script in it.  I was so proud of myself.
  7. First Encounter with a Linden: I believe it was summer of 2008 while working at Sweethearts, but I don’t remember which Linden it was that popped over.  Nor did I really understand who they were… I think I actually believed all the Lindens were related at first.  LOL like this whole family is running SL.  Yes, I’m a dork.
  8. First Encounter with a SLebrity: omgosh I really don’t even know on this one, I’ve come in to contact with quite a few designers or creators but probably didn’t realize at the time even.  I think it was probably Agnes Finney of My Precious because I won a photo contest for her store back in January 2009 and they held a party to celebrate the winners.  I remember trying to be all professional and not act like a noob fangirl…. but in the end, I don’t necessarily buy into the SLebrity thing.  We’re all just people behind a computer.  I do however have great respect and admiration for the talents of many people in SL.
  9. First SL Sim you fell in love with: Hmm… It’s a toss up between The SL Botanical Gardens and Inspire Space Park.  I frequented many gardens in my initial days after discovering that SL wasn’t just a series of nude beaches, this one always had lots of different nooks and things to explore and I always found it a fun, peaceful retreat.  It was a friend that introduced me to Inspire and I was immediately in awe.  I mean, how cool is it when you can float through space watching the planets pass by while listening to trippy music like some psychedelic Disney ride in Tomorrowland!!
  10. First SL Blog Post: Well considering I’m new to blogging, it wasn’t that long ago really. March 21st, 2013 was my first official day as a blogger and my post was about New Beginnings.  Nothing out of the ordinary except my attempt at not overly editing photos as I’m accustomed to doing.  And I’m still as excited about doing it as I was then.

Well thanks for reading… I totally want to go roller skating now.
