Just when I was about to say eff it and forget about going to the hair fair forever, I finally got into the sim. Overall, it wasn’t terrible.. yeah, I saw your typical blinged out gray blobs but maybe because I was wearing untextured everything I pretty much zipped around unhindered… the lag actually wasn’t too bad since I was flying around.. but stuff did take forever and a day to load. So anyways… the Ioehinyd Queen Hair from Curious Kitties was the biggest reason I braved the fair. As soon as I saw it, a lemming was born and yes, it was totally worth going just for it alone.
I think Succubus was kinda my theme for these pictures… and yeah, I lifted from my Wits or a Dagger thing from a while back, it’s the same skin I used there too. Ah well, not everything can be fresh and new. :P The last picture at the bottom is an unfiltered version so you can actually see the hair clearly. :)
I have been so excited for Sai Pennell‘s Katana poses ever since she first mentioned them and they are awesome!!! <333 I really love these, I keep making excuses to wear my swords everywhere so I can strike a pose when the mood hits me. Whenever I’ve wanted to use a sword or something in the past I’d have to edit the crap out of it to make it work with normal poses I had in my inventory so these just are fantastic. I’m planning on using them in two different themed photos and here’s the first set, inspired by a mix of fighting game characters. :D
I should also mention that Sai is offering an excellent AO completely free in her shop right now. I remember when I first started SL that finding a decent AO was really difficult and the ones that were free were, uh, shall we say not exactly understated. So this is really cool of her to offer this. :)
Sometimes the weirdest things give me inspiration. I had to deal with a bi… er… let’s just call her a less than savory individual yesterday and it really got my blood boiling. But I’ll spare you the diatribe related to this particular conversation. The weird part came from the fact that I’d put on Wolf Parade’s “Wits or a Dagger” to listen to (on repeat) right before this happened and because the conversation went ON AND FREAKING ON, I wasn’t able to get over to stop the song from repeating itself over and over so the whole while I was reading this individual’s “issues” I kept hearing the same song. I took the song quite literally after a while. I couldn’t find a labyrinth that I liked so I made one. And, as per usual, picture intensive… and looks better large.
“Oh, I know now I should’ve had my wits or a dagger”
I was lusting after the Thursday hair from Gritty Kitty and I decided to treat myself since I’ve been sick. :P I’m finally feeling better though! :D I’m sure you’ve seen this hair everywhere and that’s because it is absolutely awesome. One of the big problems with wearing hats in SL is prim hair has to be modded within an inch of it’s prim life to fit under a hat and that’s a lot of work. Here, the work is done for you! Yay! And omg, the options.. everything from the hat band to the individual feathers is scripted to change colors. As soon as that hair hit my head I felt like I was a character in the television series, Firefly. If you haven’t heard of it, it was a short lived Joss Whedon series on Fox and it’s a must see.. especially if you are at all into sci-fi or westerns because it’s meshes the two genres into one very entertaining bundle. So I kinda threw on a mix of my typical steampunk look and some wild frontier together, blared some Abney Park (beware, music on that page usually starts playing immediately) and went over to Plunder to take some pictures. And per usual, I had a hard time parring things down, so there’s a ton of pictures. :D I just adore this look.. I’ll probably be wearing it for a while just because I feel like a bad ass airship pirate in it. XD Oh and in other good news, I found OMFG’s stuff on SL Exchange! Wewt!!

OMG, the new ears from Illusions. They are beyond awesome. Seriously, I haven’t stopped turning my computer screen over to my husband and going, “OMG, aren’t these the most awesome ears you’ve ever seen???!!?” He agreed the first 10 times and now just ignores me. :P I saw Siyu’s post recently about releasing new ears and awaited them with bated breath. And let me tell you, these lived up to my every expectation and then some. The piercings are gorgeous, the ears are beautifully constructed and the options are glorious. I love all the jewelry color options as well as all the skin tones!! Siyu Suen is truly a genius artist. I look at these ears as pieces of art and they are just a pleasure to wear and look at. Straight out of the box, no custom texture, these ears almost perfectly match the Drow skin I had been working on recently. I had to take her out for a spin to show them off so we went to La Reve. I’m still trying not to pull my hair out when working with Windlight. It’s a love/hate relationship for me. I did end up turning off atmospheric shaders to take a few non-Windlight photos to really show off the ears. On to the pics. If you click them it will take you to my Flickr page where you can view them larger.
I had been wanting to do a picture spread that was pure fantasy and inspired by my love of World of Warcraft and I finally did it. This is my Second Life version of a Draenei. This post is going to be picture intensive and they’ll be the wee sized ones so if you want to see the full sized ones, click on them and they’ll go straight to my flickr page where you can see them larger. The latest Sunwell Patch just went live so I’ll probably be spending most of my time playing WoW but I can’t stay away from SL for very long.. especially with the goodness that is Windlight.
I guess I’ve been in a somewhat dark, gothic mood lately. I love Illusions! LOVE. Everything is so fabulous, I just can’t get enough. No big screenies (or slurls ’cause I’m lazy) as I wasn’t really in the mood to do a big ol’ photoshoot so this little teaser will just have to do. I’m sleepy… bai!
