I was totally inspired to run out and grab a kimono after I saw this post on Red-Headed Step-Child. And I’ll admit, it’s very late and I’m very tired so I’ll let the pictures do most of the talking. Both kimonos in the pictures were freebies which is always a bonus. I also finally found a chance to wear Deviant Kitties’ Lovely Hair with the intended fan accoutrement as well as take some of my personal Geisha themed skins out for a spin. Oh and I also visited a lovely Japanese styled garden sim. So there you have it. On to the substance!
Definitely click on them and then view all sizes to see the large super pretty pic. ^^
Today’s post will consist of mostly random ramblings. Beware.
Everyday brings some new wackiness with it. I swear, not a day has gone by that I didn’t log in and my neighbor hasn’t done something absolutely effing nuts on his property. *sigh* Today it’s 6 10x10x10 cubes set to glowing. Awesome. And of course, this behavior extends to a whole different set of neighbors where I have my store. Gotta love the ginormous stone wall they built within microcentimeters of my property. Geez. But at least it’s somewhat ascetically pleasing compared to glow cube over by my personal abode. >.< I wonder what is about mainland and the no rules that just makes people go crazy with the junk. Ok, that’s my rant for today.
I love Deviant Kitties hair. LOVE. I have more DK hair than other brand and I keep going back for new styles all the time. Helyanwe Vindaloo really has a gift at making the most freakin’ fantastic hair. I picked up one of the new styles, Izzy, today and I aboslutely love it. The hairstyle comes with a little color change bow which is adorable and also has a color change coon tail extension in it that kinda lets you spice it up. Yes, this is my new favorite hairstyle.
Oh yeah, I had some fun with filters and the pics were taken over at the Silent sim.
I like to bust out the cybergoth look every once in a while since it’s a favorite of mine. What prompted me today was Cafe Society’s Flamingo Hunt gift from Long Awkward Pose! LAP has some of my absolute favorite poses in all of SL so I was super psyched and immediately went on the hunt and I was not disappointed! The poses are freakin’ awesome. Seriously, awesome. And they gave me the perfect opportunity to wear the amazing Sense hair group gift from AVZ. And I absolutely love this duster from Paradisis. It was one of the first purchases I made in Second Life and I still love it. And best of all, it’s only L$ 50 and it comes in 2 colors!! And yeah.. I’m kinda on a grungy brush kick with my pictures lately. :P
I write a bit in my spare time… I know, it’s very hard to believe considering the “quality” of writing I put out here… not to mention my deplorable punctuation. But I digress, I was listening to some Wolf Parade and was inspired to write today and one bit about a torn shirt just kept nagging at my brain. I had to see it. I couldn’t just write it, I had to visualize it. So about eight uploads later I had my torn shirt. Clothing, omg, it’s enough to make me pull my prim hair out. Making seams match up, fabrics match up, blah blah blah.. it’s argh. I finally muddled through with some stripes, but it was all worth the frustration to see it in the virtual flesh and it helped me finish up my vignette. I actually had made it to be worn by a male character but after seeing it on my Fricka, well, she had to keep it. One of these days I’ll take my hubby’s toon around to get accessorized so he can be properly photographed. Until then, it’s Fricka! The group gifts from Atomic Kitty are still available at their store.. but the hunt gifts are no longer available so far as I know.
I was shopping around on OnRez.. one of my favorite past times… and I came across a slew of $1L items from a store called [OMFG] and OMFG indeed, they were awesome. I noticed they were blogged over on SL Free*Style yesterday and someone mentioned in a comment that they no longer seemed to be selling the items in world and sadly, it appears they don’t exist on OnRez anymore either. I am super sad because the stuff was freaking unbelievably cool. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw they were only $1L. I’m glad I snatched up what I did before they disappeared. I went ahead and linked their last known slurl so maybe we’ll get lucky and they’ll sell their things again soon. Anyways, I built an outfit around the seraphim wings alone. I also modded up another skin with a kinda scarred up, bruised thing to match the steampunk/post apocalyptic theme. I tried bruising up the knees and hands but it was blurry so back to the drawing board with that. And crap, I forgot my piercings and eyelashes for the pictures…. well maybe they would have been excessive. Le boo.

I change my eyes in Second Life the way I do my hair, clothes, skins, etc. That is to say, several times a day. I’m also a lemming. I will follow someone with something cool off a cliff any day. I’ve been lemming eyes from Glanz ever since I saw them on Sai Pennell’s blog. I debated, and I debated. $300L for a pair of eyes is pretty freakin’ steep imho. But I finally couldn’t resist the pull any longer and gave into my lemming urges. And well, I have no regrets. No srsly.. no regrets. They are really, really pretty. Best of all is that, even from far away, you can see the color of my eyes. I went with the green since they seemed to be the brightest color out of the ones available.
