I’m tired of feeling like I’m f**king crazy…

Regular readers will be well aware that I do like a nice frock, oh, and a nice jumper too. Try as I might I have NEVER been able to get into the mindset that you can wear what you want all year round in Second Life. Can’t do it, won’t do it, and to be perfectly honest a lot of designers won’t, either. Thank the Goddess for that!

At this time of year I’m generally  easy to find scurrying around the grid with reckless abandon like a squirrel on a mission,   looking for the new season’s latest  jumpers and jumper dress releases, and assorted items of comfort clothing to add to my vast collection and readers, let’s be honest here, it’s an issue.

But I don’t care, winter is practically here, the heating is on and I want a nice snuggly long jumper and socks to wear in my virtual life AS WELL AS my real one.  (Naturally, I look a darn sight better in my virtual existence than I do in my real one sporting such comfort attire, but that’s a given!)

Let’s completely ignore the fact that my socks and frock leave a gap where I’m sure to feel a draught around my virtual tumpsy but anyway, I do like this long jumper from RINGO HANNA that I sourced from the latest TRES CHIC event. It’s your basic long knit style that we have kinda seen a million times before but it just works, you know?

I wanted to pair this with some long, lace-trimmed socks of which I’ve seen countless pairs on fashion feeds over the years but you know what, when I wanted them I just couldn’t find them. FFS. So I bought a cheapo pair from the marketplace; a nice straightforward pair with some lacing to the top which adds interest to the look. It’s simple, it’s comfy, what more do you want?

Finally, let me draw your attention to my face. I’m wearing NAR MATTARU‘s ‘Banshee’ eyeshadow on my eyes and I am in love.  Frankly, deep down I am very much a Goth chick at heart and always have been, and I’ve grown up with a particular affection for Siouxsie Sioux. I also play Sisters Of Mercy on a regular basis and have for many years yearned to be Patricia Morrison, but anyway, at least I find a vent for that in Second Life because frankly I look a chuff with black hair (left dye on it once for too long, never again, I’ll stick to dark brown ta very much) and my hooded eyes make winged eyeliner practically impossible.

Second Life, in this case, then is definitely an outlet for my more outlandish makeup dark fantasies and I’m all for the changes that bakes on mesh have brought in and look forward to playing with layers galore on my current head du jour (although as I understand it Genus have not updated to ‘Bakes on Mesh’ yet…)

Anyway, this makeup combo plus this fantastic long hairstyle from MOON makes me look very, well, Lana Del Rey.  Even more so than the actual Landa Del Rey skin I’m wearing; I’ve certainly not adjusted my shape to make myself look more like her and didn’t buy the skin for that reason, I just liked it, but it certainly strikes me as interesting how much a heavy liner eye look has added some hints of ghetto Nancy Sinatra to my appearance, and I’m loving it.

Let Me Be Your Fantasy

KINKLE.png

I am not, despite appearances, in the slightest bit kinky. I’d rather have a nice cup of tea and a lie down; truth be told I find all the kinks and sexual weirdness in Second Life exhausting. I mean, who has the energy, virtual or otherwise, for these shenanigans? But hey, it’s a thing, I get it. Fortunately KINKY MONTHLY isn’t just all about butt plugs and lube.  Granted there’s usually quite a lot of butt-plugs and lube there BUT you’ll also find some nice items of clothing, usually of the skimpy variety but very nice, nonetheless.

Here’s an example, a very nice dress from CANDY KITTEN. It’s called ‘Heartbreaker’ and it’s a nice, simple ruched affair that you can either wear with the included bra (like I have here) or dispense of it entirely and show your nipples off. Which it’s way too cold for in my humble opinion.

I added an old harness I had in my inventory from BLUEBERRY, and some long forgotten but bot I’m glad I found them again pentacle hand harnesses from ASTRALIA and voila! A simple yet effective look appears:)

I added a style that I found at ANTHEM called ‘Babyrose’ and voila! Now about that cup of tea….

I Surrender To The Truth..

UBER is upon us and it’s a very Springy edition; lots of dresses, shorts and skimpy outerwear, underwear and as a total contrast some spectacular furnishings and dwellings too. I have literally ONE PRIM left at home. It kills me; I rearrange my furniture as often as I take my pants out of my buttcrack (they creep in, a lot) but I’ve got it looking ‘just right’ at the moment (my house, not my buttcrack) so I can’t spare any primmage for the glorious  ASTRALIA BBQ set, for a start. GAH!!!!Surrender to the Truth...However, I can spare the primmage for new hair. My long hair addiction continues and it has been more than satisfied by this release from TRUTH. It’s called ‘Surrender’ and it’s a beautiful, flowing, layered beauty. I messed up a bit actually because I did a naughty- I did the ‘buy before try’ and I should’ve done it the other way around so that I could play with more colours but nay mind, as they say around here, I have it and I feel gorgeous in it. So here is a picture of me being gorgeous in it, and I’m giving myself serious Kate Beckinsale vibes. If you love long hair then you need this in your life, obviously. I love the Styling Hud that’s included so I could wear my hair over my shoulders but I just wanted to wear my hair down, loose and free at the front for this snap. I’m still wearing my NYLON OUTFITTERS undies from COLLABOR88. They could do with a wash, to be honest…

Wanna Second Life and chill?

Okay, I confess..after my last post, I went back to COLLABOR88 because seriously, how could I not? I got some more NYLON OUTFITTERS underwear (this time I went for the waspie set in Nude, I’m NOT stalking you Nylon, I promise!) and it works perfectly, PERFECTLY I TELL YOU, with this Kimono from the latest round of THE EPIPHANY.

I felt sad wandering around THE EPIPHANY if I’m honest because it reminded me of the glory days of THE ARCADE. The quality of content, bar a few exceptions, is outstanding, and I’m afraid that, in my personal opinion, we’ve seen a sharp decline in the quality of content at THE ARCADE, which has resulted in me barely even registering any excitement at the prospect of the last round, let alone wanting to try my hand at any of the machines. (For what it’s worth, I hope I’m proved wrong by the summer edition and it’s back to the event that we know, love and long for with bated breath. I’ll cross my fingers for that <3)

Anyway, this kimono is by DAYDREAM at THE EPIPHANY and it has a hud for the pattern and trims, and one of the trim options compliments my undercrackers perfectly. Oh, and check out my hair! LOOK AT IT!!! This is the perfect Sunday morning messy updo, isn’t it? I mean, I wish that when I threw my hair into an updo in real life it looked this good and I didn’t look like a hairy potato but hey, in at least one of my lives I’m a fucking Goddess, right? It’s the second one, obviously. pinkle_004.png

So this hair is by SINTIKLIA, it’s called ‘Willow’ and the reason I love it so is the loose tendrils that don’t so much as frame the face as get in the way and do your virtual head in, but no matter because it looks all windswept and interesting and coquettish like; you know like how Brigitte Bardot was before she got all racist and shiz? Yup, that.

Anyway, enjoy. Me, I’m trying to eat my Cheerios without spilling them all down my front because of a four day weekend and all that, betches. I’m so hungover it stinks, and trust me, virtual hangovers are the worst kind. I hate being pixel pissed…..
