52 Patriarch

I've been assuming is is Royal Purple so what better than a beautiful kimono made for RFL of SL 2010? It's the "*(ichigo-ya)* RFL_SP_KIMONO from *:Sweet Strawberry:*. It comes with the appropriate shoes and socks as well as the prettiest obi I've seen in SL. Their kimonos are reasonably priced, including several for L$1 and a gorgeous pink one for Tsunami Relief at $300. I'm wearing Tiny Bird's Nantes hair in Copper, Adam n Eve's Astrelle Fae skin in Violet and poses by [LAP].

This is all in honor of my impending fall trip to Japan. It's #1 on my bucket list and I can't wait!

52 Week Colour Challenge, Patriarch

Patriarch…huh? Another colour I have never heard of.

I thought long and hard about this one and finally settled on one of Nicky Ree’s beautiful swimsuits/ dress. The *DNR* Tara Sarong Swim Suit & Dress in purple are a great versatile set of clothes for the summer. At it’s barest it is a classic swimsuit with the addition of the sarong…both pieces wonderfully textured and designed. At it’s fullest it is a pretty summer dress ideal for any daytime occasion.

I chose the usual PXL skin and Miriel eyes, plus hair and Slink shoes. I also added a new purchase from the Dressing Room…glow’s Dark Lun necklace…perfect.

Short and sweet blog again, sorry.

NEW in Your SL Library--Plus Albero Gacha Time:)

With 12 new avatars in our library being a noob just got better. Best part is that many are by Adam n Eve. Now Bollywood on the left isn't new, but she's so elegant I couldn't resist. I'm wearing my own shape, but it really makes me look exotic and "un-sam-like" I think. Don't miss Damen's earrings--they are gorgeous. The other three are new and are very wearable. I particularly like the skin with hairbase and hair for the female dancer. Unfortunately for other use it comes with the clothes on the skin so you have to work around that on a re-wear. Which I did below.

I wore the jacket from the Pirate avatar over the leotard . Albero Gacha items are the feather.earrings in pink and 2 of the Alpha Villian's glasses. The Transparent SinnerMan's work better than the Cat-Eye Glasses (Pink) because *erm* they are alpha prims. These aren't your high end bells and whistles glasses, but they is great fun :) Hop over to Hyssop and get yours!

Milla & sachi

sachi Vixen and Milla Michinaga are not only two of my dearest friends in SL, but both are very gifted content creators. And both of them know that I wouldn't blog their work if I didn't like it. So you can infer that I LIKE:) Very much.

On the left is sachi's newest fantasy dress. It has gorgeous textures and beautifully done sculpted parts. With it I am wearing jewelry from one of my favorite fantasy stores, Tekili-li. It's the Louhi set. I suppose I could look fiercer, but it's just not me.

MichaMi's Brocade Belle Dress [R] in Gold comes with two skirts, resizable either manually or with a script, but it just popped on and stayed there :) The textures are lovely, especially the lacework at the top of the bodice. The Madame Royale set in Cognac from MOOD completed the look.

Details for both outfits:
Shoes--Armidi's Vidalia
Hair--elikatira's Details
Skin-- Adam n Eve's Dany [R]
Poses--Long Awkward Pose [R]

Lemon Art Fest

OR 52 Week Colour Challenge, Lemon.

Lemon...I admit to having exactly zero of this colour in my inventory...the remedy? go shopping...where? Artilleri.

Hence my title this blog...Art = Artilleri...and well, yes, a feast of creations from there.

I'll start with the swimsuit, the Sabrina Swimsuit. A honey of a costume with a tear shaped cut out just below ones bust line. The leg line is what is called ‘boy style’ these days and gives the costume a very 1950’s feel to it. I love it a lot even in yellow…lol.

To continue the retro feel I used Artilleri’s Trixie hair and Greta glasses, both of which I already had stashed away.

I also wore a PXL skin, with a Fishy Strawberry lip gloss, Miriel eyes and chose to wear Slinks bare feet.

I shot at the beach just in front of the Artilleri store as I adore what has been done there.

So, there you have it…from nothing to a look I kept on for quite a while, even shopping…lol.

In the MOOD for Drops of Rain

It rained hard last night where I live so these new Drops of Rain earrings from the talented Jori Watler seemed appropriate. [Yes I'm behind on "52". . .cope.] They were made for Project Themory and are available now at MOOD on Copley Square. Hair is the new Amira from Exile and the skin is l.fauna's Lapine in Pale 2 Fabergé -- a group gift no longer available. Poses are the ever trusty Female Blogger ones from [LAP].

52 Week Colour, Celadon

Celadon…never heard of it but that doesn’t mean I don’t have anything of that colour.

After a little search and try on session I came across Last Call’s Anytime dress. A pretty geometric patterned mini dress with a great ‘swishy’ skirt. But, wait! This dress must be ancient…Last Call does not exist anymore. Indeed, although it looks as fresh as any of today’s designs, it is a dress made before windlight, before sculptys, before any of the fancy add ons we have had in the past couple of years. This is truly a classic dress that has stood the test of second life time.

I chose elikatira’s hair and N-Core shoes to go with the dress. The rest are my usual suspects listed below.

Dailey Grind

I am such a sucker for formal dresses especially if they are white and made of lace.

Azul recently released the Dailey gown. A truly stunning, fishtailed gown. A tulip styled top of asymmetric design coats the torso in lace and continues down to the slinky skirt that ends in a full fishtail of lace. The lace enables your flesh tone to peek through the dress making this gown both classy and sexy all in one.

A new, to me, and recent release hairstyle from Plume suited the elegance of the gown. It even has ‘pins’ in the back holding up the hair which are texture change and removeable.

The usual suspects make up the rest of the look.

Short blog but I am busy in the real world at the moment. Hopefully it’ll get better and I will have more time.

52 Week Colour Challenge, Electric Blue

52 Week Colour Challenge, Electric Blue

Electric Blue …Blue being one of my all time fav colours.

However, electric blue obviously isn’t as I had real problems finding something in my inventory that would satisfy this week’s challenge. Eventually I struck blue with cheLLe – eye shadow and Curious Collections eyes. The makeup is for that edgy look one might feel like putting together sometime and the eyes are just so pretty with heart pupils.

I’ll let the shot talk as at the moment as I am barely inworld due to a new rl job. This in turn means I am late again with the challenge ( I did shoot it last weekend but didn’t have time or energy to post in the week) and my blogging is suffering. I think this will continue until I settle into a work routine and hopefully get time to drop inworld during the week. Here’s hoping…lol

While some folks participating in the 52 Weeks Color Challenge started by the enterprising Luna Jubilee, I like inventory diving to see what I can find. And, if you have been following my 52s you know that blue is a problem for me. What did emerge is this very old "freebie" from Yak & Yeti, paired with another old freebie, the Signature Sandals from Lassitude & Ennui. Hair is the new Eden from Truth and skin is PXL Creations Gaia. Jewelry by Donna Flora and poses by [LAP].
