A Beautiful Morning   1 comment

It’s a beautiful mornin’
I think I’ll go outside a while,
An’ just smile.
Just take in some clean fresh air, boy
Ain’t no sense in stayin’ inside
If the weather’s fine and you got the time.
It’s your chance to wake up and plan another brand new day ….

— “A Beautiful Morning,” by Edward Brigati and Felix Cavaliere

We’ve actually managed to get a lot done this week, and so I rewarded myself with a side trip.  I did a little shopping at the Liaison Collaborative, then went up the stairs to the other, “non-affiliated” areas (shall we call them), and found some nice spots to shoot in while I’m wearing this dress.  I really love Baiastice; in fact, I went to the main store (“Horrors!  You shopped at the main store???“) the other day, and spotted a bunch of things that I’ll snaffle up when I get a chance.  Even lots of the “classic” Standard Sizing items will still work on a mesh body.

Late For the Train   Leave a comment

… Have to catch an early train
Got to be to work by nine
And if I had an air-o-plane
I still couldn’t make it on time
‘Cause it takes me so long
Just to figure out what I’m gonna wear
Blame it on the train
But the boss is already there ….

— “Manic Monday,” lyrics by Prince Rogers Nelson

Tholosa, the Witch-queen

October’s here!  Time to start getting in gear for Halloween, and I’ve got just the thing here.  I was going to just publish these on Flickr, but at least a few of them are pretty decent; so I’ll do the same thing here as I did on there, publish them with text beneath to explain each scene in my story.  It’s definitely a first for me, I’m not sure what Harper would have to say about this one.  But if she can publish her stuff on here, so can I, and she’s been encouraging me to. You get to judge how I do.

Fair warning disclosure — there’s a lot of large pictures here.  Have patience if it takes a little for them to load, please.

You can see the entire original collection in full size in the album on Flickr (aside from several I’m adding in here to help bulk out the collection, or that I reshot with Conan to improve things).

la-reine-de-la-sorciere-1

Tholosa the Exalted, the Witch-queen of the Empire of Oshor Chih — known not as The Exalted by her enemies, but as Tholosa of the Grave — takes her ease in her palace’s apartments, beneath a statue of one of the strange gods she worships.  Even in the gloom of her rooms, this strange woman, who has conquered and absorbed into her empire kingdom after kingdom, glows with a shell of power.  This encourages her unlettered slaves to believe in her as a goddess, and puts to use the undesirable effect of all the sorcerous protections she has cast about her in self-defense.

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.

Looking for photos of Cyberia? Not here, but edgy fashion, yes. Turn the page.

The location is The Place — though not that place.  (Ten points, a free God’s Blessing, and a trip to the chalk line if you can tell me which place that place is, and why.)  And you would not believe what I’ve went through to get these few photos.  There were more, but I had no shadows at the first place I tried, and then I forgot to save the gown the first time through, and lost track of a headdress I was wearing — I have headdresses across so many different spots in Inventory, I hate as a librarian and a supposedly “organized” person to admit it.  I’ve finally said, “To hell with it,” and I’m going with the basic gown I put together, sans headdresses, staffs, and other magical adornments.  But what a dress, and what adornments I do have in here.  First of all, the gown is PurpleMoon — need we say more?  When Poulet Koenkamp does it, she does it right.

Learn more after the break.

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….

Talking With the Blue Jays 2

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!

The Highest of Heels and a Beautiful Hat

Highest of Heels and a Beautiful Hat 2

“If they ever do my life story, whoever plays me needs lots of hair color and high heels.”

— Charlize Theron

The way you wear your hat,
The way you sip your tea,
The memory of all that —
No, no! They can’t take that away from me!

— Ira Gershwin (lyricist), “They Can’t Take That Away From Me”
