How We Roll

howweroll_600

Over time, you might find those brands who slowly creep their way into your inventory’s heart, filling it up. And then there’s others, who do it more rapidly, because every release is something you must have. Addams is the latter, because not only is the rigging so well with my Maitreya Lara body, the styles are just so on point. Especially this top from the current round at Collabor88 (which hopefully should be… maybe? less crowded now that it’s been two days, but I don’t know – it was insane getting in!) It’s made to go over the bikini top that’s also on sale, but easily can be worn without. It matches perfectly with the not-new-but-new-to-me worn jeans at the mainstore location.

Now, I’m not really sure which category Lamb falls into; I just know that over the years, I’ve collected a ton of her hair. And definitely added two more that are out now at C88. One drapes a little more over the face (shown), the other a bit more off of the face, and both with these loose waves I wish I could pull off in RL.

Electric Boogaloo

electric600

I think since I started this blog 3+ years ago, I’ve wanted to use that title. And while it’s sadly for a post inspired by Breakin’ 2, it is inspired by what’s actually been among my favorite rounds of Uber so far! And I wasn’t sure what to expect; neon and Miami can go a few different ways. But I bought so much, and I just wanna wear it all… all the time! But I’m a child of the 80’s, neon is in our blood, isn’t it?

To Be Queen

queen600

We’re week two into both Pose Fair 2015 and the new season of Game of Thrones, both of which make this pose prop from Project Puppet so very fitting. I saw it, and immediately thought of Cersei’s battle for control, something she used to be very good at. I unfortunately know a bit more than I wanted to about where her story is headed (must be careful reading wikipedia!), but I’m excited to see how the TV show takes it nonetheless. And yes, perhaps one day, I’ll sit my butt down and read the books (…tell that to my bookshelf full of ‘to reads’). Head on down to Pose Fair to grab this before it’s too late!

Also, as if fate, Berry‘s Monday Meme for the week is.. TV Show! Check out her post and create your own on a blog, flickr, or any medium you choose!

Color of Your Energy (Pose Fair 2015, Park 2)

Continuing on with Pose Fair 2015, I found this awesome prop from Everglow. There’s actually a series of them, ranging from ones you hold, stand on, and sit (single sit, displayed above).

Power of Three (Pose Fair 2015, Part I)

My favorite time of year has arrived! Pose Fair 2015 opened its doors on Saturday, and within this annual event are over 90 pose designers with new, exclusive poses for your photographic needs. RIDIC Poses has a few new sets out that I love, especially this triple set Tripsie. It’s perfect for showcasing what me & these two lovely ladies emptied our wallets on at this round of Collabor88! I also found a new-to-me designer, Nata Poses, with a number of static poses that I bought for future poses. Check them out – Pose Fair 2015 is open until April 25th!

This Bird Has Flown

I know some of you are stuck in lower temperatures still, but down here in the South, mid-70s and sunshine are making every venture outdoors lovely. Though, admittedly, also brief, because… allergies, too. Anyway, ColdLogic was right on cue, recently unveiling a line of spring dresses that you can pick up right at the main store. Truth, too.. releasing a hair tailor made for warm breezy days. It’s over at Uber, and comes both with and without the hat!

What Now?

whatnow600

“He walked out in the gray light and stood and he saw for a brief moment the absolute truth of the world. The cold relentless circling of the intestate earth. Darkness implacable. The blind dogs of the sun in their running. The crushing black vacuum of the universe. And somewhere two hunted animals trembling like ground-foxes in their cover. Borrowed time and borrowed world and borrowed eyes with which to sorrow it.”

Sweater Weather

sweaterweather600

It’s most definitely sweater weather right now up in the northern part of the globe, & designers are responding in kind! It can be hard to come up with an idea that stands out amongst the pack, but Amerie managed to do that with this sweater available at The Seasons Story. The two-tone design and HUD-controlled long sleeves make it versatile and very cozy! My thumbs for my Slink hands do stick out at the end of the sleeves, edited out for this pose, but the effect inworld actually makes it look like there’s a hole there. It’s unintended, but I love it!

Most Likely to…

yearbookperi2

I enjoy doing photo challenges in RL, and have always wished to dive into blog challenges, too. Aside from Luna Jubilee‘s 52 Weeks of Color Challenge (which I need to finish off the last 4 weeks), I haven’t done many… or any? Anyway, no time like the new year to start.

Strawberry Singh is reigniting her regular Monday Memes, and has picked a fun one for the first of 2015: Second Life Yearbook Smile. Check out her post here for info and try it out! I used the AnyPose Expression HUD (free!) to do my smile, and blended two photos (with and without the HUD activated) since the toothsmile setting made my eyes all squinty. There is some setting in SL that slows animations, but if you release the toothsmile check and quickly snap the photo, you may just catch yourself looking slightly more natural.

Slopes

slopes2600

If you’ve ever owned a puffy vest in RL, you know just how amazing it is. Normally made with down feathers, it traps in heat within your core, and it’s comfy to boot! I was so happy to see Tres Blah came out with one for this round of Collabor88, along with thermals to put underneath, because they’re both pretty perfect! And while I don’t get cold in SL, nor snowboard in both lives, it sure doesn’t hurt to look the part, eh? Both fit well with the FLite boots from this round of The Arcade and FLite googles that you can pick up at Winter Trend!
