Club Night

club-night-1

Harper suggested we go check out a club called Cyberia Openstage.  The Destination Guide (a handy thing at times for newbies or relative newbies for finding fresh places; even you oldbies should try it sometimes) lists it as “a sci-fi themed place with an open stage for all aspiring and established deejays.”  And we loved it when we got there; someone was playing electronica at the time, and a batch of people were grooving the beat.  We recommend it for music and dancing, if you ever want to go clubbing someplace that doesn’t require a ball gown.

Talking With the Blue Jays 1

I finished up a survey I volunteered to take on religion in Second Life today, and took some time afterward to wander around the land.  As I was walking back from the Celtic cross I have on a sub-island, look what I spotted sitting on my bridge!  He was a friendly type — didn’t move an inch when I bent closer to talk to him.  I felt like Snow White for a minute, singing to the birds in the forest….

Snow White didn’t dress like this, though, which I found at a side location while I was picking up my eyeshadow for this shoot.  Green and black leather, fitting nicely, soft and supple when I move.  I matched this dress with new rings and earrings from Modern Couture, and a bracelet from Zuri Rayna.

And, at last, a long hairstyle I enjoy!  The Tsubasa wig from Argrace fits wonderfully, doesn’t stuff itself into my boobs, and is modifiable for color to the jelly-bean colors I choose for some of my characters.  I can see Ariel in her trademarked dark blue shade with this hair when she doesn’t have it in an updo; and as for more normal shades, look at Sharra here.  There are more shades available in both dark and light red, of course, as well as other colors.  If long hair is your preference, try this one out for sure!

O Canada

O Canada! 1

O Canada! Our home and native land!
True patriot love in all thy sons command.

With glowing hearts we see thee rise,
The True North strong and free!
From far and wide,
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

God keep our land glorious and free!
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

Good Friends, Food, Gossip and Fashion

“So,” Harper said while we were having lunch together, “looks like you got to The Instruments.”

“Yeah!” I said as I sipped my lemonade. “I’m afraid I turned into a clone of you; I’m wearing the same dress.”

“Not quite,” Harper said.  A waiter dropped a small salad in front of her; I’d already eaten.  “You chose a pattern. I went for a solid. I’m not that much into patterns and prints, depending.”

Laughing in Flowers

Writing from Kissimmee, Florida —

Snapshot_004

“The earth laughs in flowers.” — Ralph Waldo Emerson

A little while back, when Conan was taking pictures of my new house, he also shot some of me posing in a new gown from Kelini Couture.  Now that the push to finish up this year’s OFPC is over with, I feel more justified in writing this session up.  The terrible thing is, due to the self-imposed delay, the gown is no longer available.

I don’t feel too bad about it, though.  This dress was one of the most photographed and frequently written up in the past few months, so it’s not likely you missed hearing about it.  The Flower Power event was one of those double-ring shopping fairs, to squeeze in the maximum amount of stores; but, with some persistence (and a good item search function), you could find the Kelini booth and fill up your shopping bag.  It’s not available any more, so let’s hope Eva will hear our crying and pleading to place it in the store.  (Please, Eva, PLEASE, pretty please!)

Amalia‘s strapless top is sewn with some additional pleated folds (lined in gold satin here) that extend down to form a sort of mildly panniered overskirt effect.  The sheath undergown is studded with golden flowers in a very nice effect, and the hem is raised enough for a pair of elegantly-shod feet to be revealed — this time in N-core’s Knotted sandals.  N-core prefers to sell their shoes in individual colors yet; but the included HUD allows plenty of options in soles, heels and other secondary parts.  And, for once, I decided to wear pantyhose, from BAX Coen.  I like the effect so much, I may make copies of the feet with the SLink appliers for the hose and keep them on hand for ready use.  A caution:  if you use attachment feet with as system body, as I still prefer to do, you’ll need to purchase a package in your desired tone from both sides of the display, one for the appliers and the other, older package for the system panties.  It’s worth the investment!

The makeup is relatively simple for once; I didn’t use multiple layers for my eyeshadow, as I love to do so much.  Mandala’s collar and earrings make a lovely compliment to the confection, and Donna Flora’s Vanilla ring adds a grace note, as does the Finesmith ring on my other hand.
