I’m in the kind of mood that would be described around my local area as having ‘Seen my arse’. It’s a quaint old saying that means you’re not a happy bunny. The query would be, “What’s the matter with you-have you seen yer arse?” to which you would probably mumble some obscenity in reply, and skulk off meaning that yes, you had indeed seen what was implied and that you were most definitely in an absolute corker of a grump!
So what brings this not-quite-blue with sadness, and definitely-not-red with anger, but incredibly-purple-with-epic-arseness type mood to me? Windows bleeding 10, as it shall henceforth be known. I naively thought that my previous issues were rectified but alas, they were not.
I’m having difficulties full-stop with my PC and logging into Second Life is becoming incredibly difficult. It’s not just logging in but staying logged in too, which means that blogging so far this week has been nigh on impossible. I can’t sustain my in-world status and I wish there was some sort of virtual Viagra to cure what ails me. Sadly there isn’t, and until a proper fix appears on the wibbly, wobbly, interwebz I’m going to have to suffer my affliction as best I can, and those around me will be cursed to endure my somewhat lilac shade of temper.
Which brings me to my LOTD. I had to do something quick yet satisfying so rummaged in my inventory to see what I could find, and I found undies! Glorious, lovely undies that are both incredibly sexy to look at and incredibly funky too. These are the ‘Delice’ lingerie separates from ERRATIC for the latest round of COLLABOR88 and they’re an absolute must-have item. They’re super pretty and if you zoom in they stand up to close scrutiny very well; with great shape, texture and colour working harmoniously together. They’re available in both print and plain and I’ll be cavorting around my skybox in these for a while to come! (I’m wearing the thong in this shot, the set includes a fuller pant with suspenders and stockings that looks equally sensational).
I teamed my underwear with some new hair, (I’ve spent a bloody fortune on hair recently; people need to stop making amazing hairstyles and releasing them!) and this style is from ACTION INKUBATOR. I spotted their ad in one of the groups on FLICKR, and off I went. I haven’t worn bobbed hair in an absolute aeon in world and although this ‘Emily’ hairstyle isn’t quite a bob it has similarities in shape and in particular the way that it frames the face, so it sort of qualifies. I really love it, and although it’s a tad pricier than styles from other leading hair brands the satisfaction I get from wearing it more than negates the cost. Besides, I had to have it because I look sodding amazing in it.
I finished my look with my ‘Tombstone’ tattoo from WHITE WIDOW, a lovely, simple black nose ring from MONS @ COLLABOR88 and a little black bow collar from BOOM that I’ve had for yonks yet always works wonders for hiding unsightly neck seams when things aren’t quite rezzing in the way that you want them to.
Last but not least I’ve thrown on an old favourite skin of mine, ‘Zoe’ by NAR MATTARU which always makes me sing THIS when I wear it. Jade Glazner’s skins, along with Shantia Soulstar’s, are in my opinion some of the best out there on the grid and are often over-looked in favour of the more well-known brands. They have an edge to them that’s hard to put into words but they do suit the alternative, darker scenes incredibly well. Also, this skin is over a year old now and it hasn’t dated at all; it still has a fresh feeling to it and has proven beyond doubt that it can stand up to repeated wearing and will serve me well long into the future I’m sure. I’ve added some slender brows and some beautiful eyes, also from NAR MATTARU to finish my look and I have to confess, I’m not nearly feeling quite so purple as I was when I started. But boy does this colour suit me or what?
