I Love Denim Dresses (Squee!)

I love denim dresses. Maybe it's because I'm a child of the 80's. I make it a point to nab them when I can and with mesh being the awesome that it is, denim dresses have never looked better. Now, if the jean skirts will start coming out, I'll be happy! This dress is the latest of Pixel Mode's Babydoll line, which comes in other whimsy patterns and textures.

If you're fashionably aware of anything in Second Life, you'll know that Maitreya has a group special for it's VIP members and is currently offering the gorgeous Radical Boots in a delicious, creamy suede.

/me Cries

I learned how to do tears, and you can to by watching this tutorial: Truth is I went over the tattoo tears with this just to make them shine a bit more. Also, I was pretty down when I did this picture. You know how it is just listening to the wrong song at the wrong time after watching a sad movie accompanied with poignant emotional aches. So I thought I'd make something beautiful and emotive. This is one of three.

52 Weeks of Color: Rust

It's the 26th week of Luna Jubilee's 52 Weeks of Color challenge. This week is a nice earthy rust. I actually didn't choose a rust colored garment, but a soft yellow. I thought it complimented the whole picture as a whole.

There's really no need for me to give this entry an elaborate title. The truth is my 'to blog' folder is full of hair. Some people are skin junkies, some are shape junkies, and some might be fixated on a particular item of clothing. Like shoes. As for me? I have to have hair and lots of it. Maybe because I have long hair in real life and adore wearing it in so many ways that I gravitate to having a bajillion updos and different styles of long here in second life. There are jokes passed around that yes, indeed, I probably do own the entire inventory selection of Truth Hawkes' merchandise. At least the reds.

Creators are really dishing out the new styles lately. Awesome for my avatar! Terrible for my wallet.

This first style is from =DeLa=. I did not know she was making mesh hair until a little birdy on Plurk mentioned it. So I tried on all the demos and then, subsequently, bought three of the hairs. For one I love her reds. Secondly, I love how romantic the styles are.

The latest buzz-about event is Fairy Tales at Glam Affair. I have tried to get over there with little luck. I did, however, manage to brave the lag just long enough to swoop down and snag me one of Exile's hairstyles for the event. I love Exile's mesh hair. The textures, the colors.. And what's more is that I love a good editorial hair. Exile has two hairs available at Fairy Tales 2012. This one is called Lost in Wonderland. I don't have it pictured, but it does come with a bow that changes textures.

Do you believe in marriage equality? Do you think that marriage should be for all? Once upon a time, civil liberty was denied to mixed races in our 'land of the free'. Today it is denied to same-sex couples or transgender couples. Marriage is a celebration of love. It should not come with a biblical definition. It should not be subject to the whims of lawmakers and politicians.

Hair Fair Contest 2012

Here is my entry, or rather one of them. I probably shouldn't share this information in order to increase my chances of winning. I mean the prize is early access to the hair fair! That's a great prize! However, I think I enjoy looking at people's submissions and braving the lag more than enjoying the perks of no lag. Art lasts forever, or at least the digital variety carries on longer than an event.

Official Hair Fair Photo Contest 2012

This year's theme is: Freedom. My dear girlfriend's six year old daughter died this past weekend to Neuroblastoma. Horrible, horrible disease. It's a rare childhood cancer and the survival rate is pretty slim. Needless to say, Lilly became another statistic and I watched the sad tale of her diagnosis shift into an early death. As horrible as all of that is, at the very end of her life, her eyes lit up as if she saw something pretty amazing, and then she asked whoever she was staring at if she was going to fly. See, she always wanted to be able to fly. Right after that, she slipped away...and she was free. Free of pain, free of sickness, and free of  fear. I hoped she saw an angel. I pictured her leaving that sterile hospital room and stretching out her new wings, relieved and simply free.

[Lelutka] Sleeping Beauty

I've already blogged about Ariel, so next up is Aurora. Actually, I first saw Aurora at the Lelutka store on the marketplace. I thought, oh how dreamy. Big fat curls. A headband. Looks just like Aurora from Sleeping Beauty. And then I saw the Ariel and the Belle and immediately handed Lelutka's creator all of my Linden. Here! Take it! I don't need it! I just need this awesome Disney hair! This really isn't a fashion shot. I got a little artsy here with my keeping in theme with Sleeping Beauty, but the style card is located on the bottom of this post anyways.

"Sleep is a reconciling,
A rest that peace begets.
Doth not the sun rise smiling
When fair at e'en he sets
Rest you then, rest, sad eyes,
Melt not in weeping
While she lies sleeping,
Softly, softly, now softly lies sleeping."
Weep No More Sad Fountains

[Lelutka] Goes Disney!

Luletka released three (yes, three!) new mesh hairstyles related to some childhood favorites. Ariel (fan girl scream!), Aurora, and Belle. The Little Mermaid was probably the last movie to truly fill me up with imagination and childhood wonder before I started leaning towards adulthood. It remains as one of my favorite movies to this day. (Along with Monty Python and the Holy Grail and MST3K: This Island Earth.)

52 Weeks of Color: Unmellow Yellow

It's the 25th week of Luna Jubilee's 52 Weeks of Color Challenge Part Deux featuring a favorite color of mine: Yellow. I love yellow! It's so bright and cheerful. So I have mixed feelings about blogging with my Curio skin while Gala Phoenix is currently trying to get her store back. Right now Curio skins are unavailable, so is it fair to post images with a skin that can not be purchased as or right now? Does it matter if I'm not a professional blogger, but rather a hobbiest? Is the focus more on the clothes or is it the whole avatar?

What can I say? I love stripes. Sometimes I love them enough to change my shape a bit in order to wear them, like I had to do with this mesh top from Bella's Lullaby. Have you been? She has some wonderful group gifts and lucky boards.

To stage left is Dannika Dryke. As you can see the two of us look pretty similar, which means that she's quite lovely. We're shopping friends, we're photographer friends, and we're roleplay friends. Actually, we're just friends. And we both love Maitreya. I mean, how can a woman in SL not love Maitreya? The new 'Mignon' dress from their summer collection is to die for and comes in floral patterns and stripes. Pair with sunglasses and sunblock.

Curio, I Support You!

 I got a notice from Gala Phoenix of Curio Skins stating that her store is closed. I love Curio's skins. I mean I loooooove them. I mostly wear Yum in Moonbeam. I have an alt who wears the Jasmin in Shell. Because I love her skins so much I have a few others that I wear just for photographs. So when I found out that Gala Phoenix lost her store and that she had to pull all her skins from Second Life because Hush's skin maker has reported Gala Phoenix as a skin thief I was sort of beside myself. There's been a lot of head scratching over this from what I've read on various blogs and now photographs are turning up of Hush's skins ill disguised watermarks not only from Curio but from League as well.

So...Really? Are you REALLY going to rip off someone's skins and try to pursue legal action against THEM? I hope karma's boot has steel toes, spikes, and perhaps some explosives, so that when you get your ass kicked from here to Hell it really, really hurts.
