Unconventional Beauty

I talk a lot about interesting beauty, where imperfections replace perfection, “flaws” are the best part, and unconventional beauty trumps all. With literally thousands of “beautiful” items available every day in Second Life, I think a lot about how to bring my true self into my styles in this virtual world where we can be perfect all the time if… Read more →

The Shift

We didn’t have much of a winter in Boston this year, which is fine, considering last year. The shift has started though – and temperatures are expected to top 70 degrees here this week 😮 In honor of climate change, I am breaking out shorts very early. It’s not quite warm enough for this today IRL but soon, very soon.… Read more →

Cruel Odds and Trips Not Taken

I was supposed to be leaving for England and Amsterdam this coming Sunday but illness will more than likely keep me home. It’s been a rough winter in terms of getting sick constantly, but hey, Spring is on the way or so I hear. Trips not taken… While I usually kvetch about The Arcade every season, I will say that… Read more →

Revisiting LeLutka Mesh Heads

I haven’t worn my LeLutka mesh heads in a while. They are still the most well-made heads on the grid with the most effective ways to extend their wear with so many gorgeous appliers from dozens of skinners, but for me, I need new ones to get excited again. Once I see something *everywhere* I personally tend to wear it… Read more →

Pink Fuel: Morgana at The Arcade

I braved The Arcade once again, albeit briefly, and picked up Morgana from Pink Fuel in all the brow options. I added some of my favorite tattoos to soften the lips and cheeks a bit. Dark eyebrows are my absolute favorite on any skin and these are absolutely gorgeous. If I could take them and put them on other skins,… Read more →

Insatiable

I started down this path somewhat yesterday, but I do believe I have reached the point – surprised as I am – that I really do prefer mesh heads to standard AV heads, in snapshots anyway. They just allow for much sharper features with no post processing, and after getting used to them, it doesn’t feel as strange anymore. The… Read more →

I keep telling myself…

The Arcade Gacha. Well, as much as I tell myself I just won’t do it. I still do. And that’s of course because the content calls for it. I’m wearing the new face from The Skinnery, which was worth the trip by itself quite honestly. I really do hope to see more applier-based skins for LeLutka very soon too. I… Read more →

Intimates

I have been slowly collecting lingerie in SL, something I love IRL very, very much ^^ I recently read this on NWN and it got me thinking about original work again. Incidentally, Roslin Petion is someone whose work I have worn religiously since back when she was one half of the premier skin making team at Tete a Pied. Today,… Read more →
