Revival

It’s now the middle of September, and thus we begin the transition from summer to fall (at least in the northern part of the globe). I’ve always lived in places where that transition is a longer process (that rarely ends with snow), so it’s always this dance between being warm enough in the day to being chilly at night, and that jacket better be ready. That’s immediately what I thought of when I saw these pants on a girl at one of SL’s social lounges… and shamelessly inspected them to find out they’re from Legal Insanity! The jeans have a few different styles with one set flannel color, but you can buy a few different add-ons that use a HUD to change the shirt portion. Pairing it with a new crop top from United Colors and the rare hair from Lamb at The Arcade, and you have the outfit I’ve been in for three days. I probably should change… 😉

No One’s Watching

I had resisted diving into mesh heads for quite awhile now for the same reason I rarely ever get a new skin – I am picky. Way overly picky. And once I did start to check them out, I realized too how extensive and diverse the options are now. From skin to skin, lips to eyes, every option changes the look, and thus finding a fit for who my avatar has always been… well, it was a rabbit hole, for sure! I’m still in it, actually, but I’ve mostly settled for now on a lovely Glam Affair skin from this June’s round of Collabor88 (not used for this shot, but to be seen soon). More on that to come!

One trend I am loving in SL these days for us photo enthusiasts is main stores decorating the remainder of their sims in very picturesque settings. It’s lovely to visit, use for photographs, and especially in the case of my friend Lundy’s store, Hive, I found myself idling long after I was done just enjoying the setting while working on other things.

Slopes

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!
