The new SL house

I got a new house from Barnesworth Anubis, and moved to the ground. Sometimes I wonder why I always have a skybox. I think that privacy in SL is pretty much an illusion. But most of SL is an illusion sooooo. Anywho. I’m wearing a great jacket from Coco, new hair from Wasabi Pills that has me channeling Farrah Fawcett and some great boots from Reign, that I purchased at their 50% off sale…SQWEEEEEE. Changed up my skin for my old standby Curio Nadia, which has SLink appliers and the lovely skirt is from Whippet & Buck, one of my favorite designers and creating mesh in SL!

Saying goodbye to the last days of summer

So, I know it’s fall, but I couldn’t resist showing off this unbelievably PERFECT dress from Cynful. This is the sexiest, most well fitting dress I’ve had on my av in forever, and I can’t stop looking at my av! I love the shoulders/back of the dress, so I chose this Wasabi Pills styles that seems to enhance the utter sexiness of the dress with a touch of innocence. A simple silver necklace from Izzies, and a Dark Mouse bangle adds just enough, and the coup de grace are the pure platform pumps from Livalle. I chose a beachy boardwalk theme for the ‘background’ because the last days of summer are when the tourists are all gone and the good things happen. I hope you like…the other pics from this series are on my Flickr, so take a look. Full outfit credits are below the pics.

Water Rising

I was feeling a bit mysterious about these pictures, so wellllll.  I went for it.  The outfit is a gorgeous top from Teefy, and a fantastically versatile skirt from Sn@tch.  Sort of simple.  I’ve dressed it up a bit with hair by Moon, red lipstick and some Dark Mouse jewelry that you can’t quite see. As always, credits are below the pics.  I would credit the shoes, but welp, you can’t see them now that I went a bit nuts with filters. These pictures were taken on the Athan Selidor sim.  Check out the full set of photos from this series on my Flickr.

Taking the plunge – the mesh body

Ok so, I’ve finally gone and done it.  I finally got a mesh body.
I got a bunch of demos, tried a variety and finally settled on the Physique Mesh Body by SLink.  I like the body quite a bit, I already have the feet and hands, and I trust that the body will work for me. I found that I could play with the SL sliders and adjust various things to make it as close to my original shape as possible (already pretty much a standard medium).  I already had the Lara Hurley applier for my favorite skin, so that worked too.  I realized a couple of things as I started taking pictures of my hot new body (because let’s face facts..all bodies in SL are hot).  I would be spending a lot less time in photoshop fixing ragged edges on my avatar.  This can only be a good thing.  Clothing FITS me better.  Siddean provides free updates.  In other words, it’s all good, I can hardly go wrong. I thought that the price was reasonable!   And I’m already so far behind the curve on mesh that it was time to just do it.  I don’t know if I’ll involve myself with Mesh heads, but almost certainly NOT until the day they become editable.   So about the outfit.  I’ve had the pants and shoes for a while, and probably have worn them before in a post.  It’s the top I’m in love with.  Made by a new to me designer, Just Because, it fits wonderfully, and I love the color combo.  I expect to see great things from this designer in the future.  Anywho, I took a whole series of shots that you can find on my Flickr, and as always, outfit credits are below the pics.
