L’il Imp and Video Tutorial – We Love Roleplay, The Arcade, Limit8

121016-02 (Edit 2).png

Helloooo, bloglings! I am back with a new fantasy avatar. I am in love with so many things in this post. Please excuse my excitement over superficial, inconsequential things, but they make me happy. First of all is this beautifully detailed set from Violent Seduction at The Arcade. Unfortunately, it is a gacha, but is it really lovely and I found it worth the gamble. I have previously had difficulty with the fits from Violent Seduction, but this one fits me really well. Don’t forget to demo!

So, I am so super excited about these demon wings and tail by aii. So excited that I created a whole video below about my excitement and how to use them. I’m a total nerd, so please forgive me. The tail is being released at We Love Roleplay and the wings can be purchased at the aii main store location.  These wings utilized the bento update to SecondLife, which is explained by Daria here.

This is a guest post on the MBA blog. Please visit there for the credits.

The Magic Within – Enchantment and Collabor88

Her complexion matched the dim light of the foggy morning, simultaneously gray and luminous. White hair laid heavily around her, shrouding her as a cloak. The wind randomly lifted tendrils to fly about wildly, but she did not seem to notice nor care. Pristine white hooves, clicked on the ground softly. Her delicate steps barely created any sound. Just as delicately as she walked, she sat. Her figure awkwardly upright, legs and hands crossed. And as she sat, the bench listened to her magic. The slats of dead, painted wood stretched and curled. She did not command the magic within her; it was its own entity, she was merely a vessel, a host. In return, it protected her. Those contorted slats of wood, now alive, flicked and hissed, warning any passerby who did not heed the warning of the horn on her brow.

Hello, bloglings! I’m back with a new round of Enchantment about which I am very excited! The theme this round is The Last Unicorn which, of course, makes me very happy. AiShA has these lovely armoured hooves and unihorns out, which I absolutely love.And no.match released this long glorious hair, fit for any beautiful, rare, and magical creature. The hair also comes with a unihorn, but I’m wearing AiShA’s with it instead.

You can read more about the quarterly Enchantment event here. This round ends on February 29th.

Collabor88‘s theme this round is Espionage, with tons of fun and sexay spy things. All spies are sexy, of course. You can read more about Collabor88 here and take peaks at their shopping guide if you aren’t able to get in.

Mission. – The Fantasy Collective and Uber

Darkness painted along the edges of the city, filling in the creases and alleys. The street lights broke through the darkness, but only superficially. Their light was limited and hazy, only drifting along the surfaces, never able to penetrate the thick paint of darkness that seeped into the corners. She didn’t mind. Her visual sensors were very acute, and her processing power handled the flux and flow of data seamlessly. She walked with precision and purpose. One might even confuse the look on her face for an emotion, perhaps a mixture of determination, hatred, and anger deep within her gut? No, her wiring.

She was created by man. Artificial. Unnatural. A machine. Digital. They showed her at conventions, a prototype for a new and upcoming technology. She listened to the official presenters for Omnitech who spoke of her with clarity and precision. The memories of those speeches echoed through her mind, a mind she wasn’t supposed to have (or is that just her hard-drive?). Her audio input was acutely sensitive and the words cut to her core.

She was just a product, a resource, a thing to be used. Well, she would not be spoken of this way any longer. The fierce determination on her face actually was determination. The anger welling up in her gut actually was anger. And the hatred, the most human thing about her, that painted over all her sensory input, like the darkness painted the city. It filled in the empty holes, the cracks that could have been filled with love and compassion were dripping with the sweet absolving flavor of hatred.
Mission.   I’m so dark lately, blogettes. Don’t worry, I’m sure I’ll do a fairy princess unicorn mermaid post again soon. But onto the shopping goodness!

Uber opened with the theme of awesomeness…again. Okay, it is really called Street Style (and, no, that isn’t a euphemism for hooker clothes). Shi released this nice unisex, windswept bob. They also have a bun version, if you prefer. Erratic released this bikini, which I <3. I know people have been looking for bikinis because it is summer, and they want to be all beachy and cute in their mesh bodies and splashing water on each other all sexy-like on sundrenched shores. But I like this bikini because it doesn’t really look like that. It it badass and has thick straps and looks like I could kill someone in it….and I just might.

The Secret Affair is also still open, which is where LAB737 released this beauitfully textured armor. The texture on this armor is seriously crazy good. Also, if you edit linked parts, you can make the straps fit your arms perfectly.

And, yes, I’m still pushing this beauitful skin by Lumae for 100L at Genre. It is a ridiculously good deal and such a lovely skin.

Feeling pretty.

Hello bloggettes! Uber opened on the 31st and it is AMAZING. I am starting to look forward to Uber more than Collabor88, to be honest.

Feeling pretty.

I was trying some new photography techniques to make the background completely black and only use projector lighting. I realize it isn’t the best lighting. I’ll get better, bloglings!

This lingerie by Erratic at Uber is absolutely gorgeous. It even comes with pieces specifically for the SLink body. Lovely.

LotD 126: Hazelnutty Goodness

LotD 126

Hello Bloglings! So, I cheated a little today, but I’m tired from Pose Fair coverage. I know I blogged this outfit yesterday with the meme, but you couldn’t really see it. So, here it is again where you can actually see it in all its hazelnut glory.  

There is so much going on right now that I am practically bursting at the seams with it. Pace yourself Musey (yes, I talk to myself). First, I have good news for my little blog. I have been invited to be on the Style Academy feed. In case you don’t know what a feed is, I will explain. A feed aggregates a bunch of different blogs together so that a reader can go to one place and view posts from many different blogs. The Style Academy is a special honor because it is an exclusive feed by invitation only with very talented bloggers. If you are not currently reading this feed, you should be (because there are so many talented bloggettes out there), here is your <link> and you will always be able to find the link on my feeds page.

Now as made evident by my recent posts, Pose Fair has started and I hope you have been enjoying my extensive coverage and the fair itself. I have had a lot of fun breaking out of my shell and trying new things (oh my god, I got nakie!). But there is also so much more going on that I will be covering in the week to come, such as: The Avenue Spring/Summer Fashion Week, The Hollywood Event, The Soho Market (opening on April 1st), FaMESHed (opening on April 1st), new releases from mon tissu (finally, am I right?!),  Zaara, CheerNo, and Ducknipple. I’m running out of breath, bloglings!LotD 126

Today, the clothes are not new. I took a little break from Pose Fair (with a pose from Pose Fair, of course) to bring you a look of the day which is just a mish-mash of things found in the depths of my inventory (don’t pretend your inventory isn’t just as deep, scary, and unorganized).

Style Notes: Though the clothes aren’t new, the pose and pose prop (lunch box) are. They can both be purchased at Pose Fair 2013.  The poses are purchased in a pack and the lunch boxes are in a gacha (good luck!).

Social Media Meme

meme photo

Another meme for you (and another pose from Pose Fair 2013!), my little Bloggettes. This one is based on social media and I’m only doing it for the sake of completion because don’t participate much in social media. This is another meme implemented by the lovely Strawberry Singh. You can read more about what a meme is <here> or read her own memes on her memes’ page <here>.
What was the first social network you joined using your SL Avatar?
Flickr in April of 2011. I did this at the same time that I created my blog, for my blog.

Which social networks are you currently on using your SL Avatar?

Flickr ♥

Plurk — I just started Plurk and it kinda confuses the hell out of me, to be honest.

Which network is your favorite?

Flickr, of course! The Flickr community is so talented and encouraging. Each “favorite” is a boon to my confidence as a blogger. I’ve learned so much from the Flickr community and have found so many SL bloggers through Flickr that I wouldn’t have found otherwise.

Which network is your least favorite?
Plurk. I don’t have many friends on Plurk (Please friend me; I’m a force for good. haha) and the format seems confusing to me. Also, because it is new, I’m not sure how to utilize it to my advantage yet (without annoying the hell out of my friends) so, I mostly just sit back and watch the craziness.

Which network do you have the most amount of connections?
Flickr for obvious reasons. (I know this is becoming redundant, please bear with me. It will all be over soon. haha)

How/Where do you usually read/use most of your networks?
I only access them on my computer, mostly because I’m on SL enough and I want to keep that part of my life contained (it is already a bit out of control). 😀

What are your favorite social networking apps? (if applicable)

I don’t utilize any. 🙂

What do you like most about social networking sites?

I like the socialization and interaction between bloggers and readers. Futhermore, I love what I’ve learned through Flickr. It is invaluable to my success. And I’d be lying if I omitted that I liked promoting my own blog, because I like sharing the things I love and my own SL fashion sense with my little bloglings. 🙂 Considering Strawberry’s answer; I just may be signing up for a Twitter very soon (I want to learn more too!).

What do you like least about social networking sites?

I know that people have had problems with drama in social networking sites. I suppose that is inevitable. However, I haven’t really encountered any of that. Either I’m really good at avoiding it, or I’m completely oblivious (I’m going to pretend it is the former). However, simply knowing that the drama and negativity exist is enough for it to be my least favorite aspect of social networking sites.

Do you feel social networks are a good way to promote you/your brand/your work? 
I do, but you have to be careful. It is ony good for promoting your brand if you mesh with the community and you participate in the community. Simply spamming your brand/work without being an active participant or if you are an active participant but are a constant stream of negativitiy/drama could be more detrimental to your brand/work than helpful.

What is your main reason for using Social Networks?

I don’t think I have one main reason. I signed up for Flickr to promote my blog, but I stayed for the knowledge base and talent. If it weren’t for that, I don’t think would utilize it as often or spend time interacting with the community (even if that is only by browsing others’ work. Often I don’t comment, because I get distracted. This is my mental process: “I’m going to comment on how lovely this photo is because I love such and such about it. Oh! Another pretty picture!” *click*).

Androgynous Series: 9

Androgynous Series: 9

Hewwo Bloglings! It is that time of the month again. No! Not my bitchy-I-need-chocoate-time-of-the-month. The time of the month when The Men’s Dept is about to open. I know you’re groaning at me and wondering what that has to do with you, but bloggettes never miss a moment to shop. And the Men’s Dept is another moment to do that. Also, with the opening of The Men’s Dept tomorrow comes this new coat from Villena, which comes with both a male and female version and also can be worth with or without the scarf. Now ask me again what the opening of The Men’s Dept has to do with you my lil bloglings? Exactly!

Also new from Villena are these pants, which also come in a male and female version. I love this stuff! 😀

LotD 104: You Can’t See Me

LotD 104

Bloggettes! FaMESHeD is out again and with it erratic has come out with these adorable new hoodies. The hoodies come with a long maxi skirt and the look is just adorable. Instead, though, I paired my black hoodie with this new tutu skirt from DECO.

LotD 104

Style Notes: The skirt actually comes with some amazing belt detailing which can’t be seen here due to the hoodie, but make sure you stop by and try a demo out to see it. It also comes in eight colors including this camo. While you’re at the store, check out the mesh slingpack on the wall right next to the skirts, they’re amazing as well and come in six colors.  I will probably show them in in upcoming post.
