Afternoon

Hey, another extended absence! Things have been not great. My last surviving precious dog passed away in early November. To say I took his loss hard would be an understatement. I shut down and spiraled into a pretty nasty bit of depression. When I finally surfaced, I decided it was time to move on and get myself another dog. Unfortunately, my new little addition has had one health problem after another. The poor thing hasn’t had a normal day since she came to us. I love the little booger but wow it’s been rough dealing with a sick dog on the heels of losing my last dog. Of course, when it rain it pours, and I’ve been sick myself for over two months. Add in a sprinkle of crippling anxiety and insomnia and you have the last few months around Casa Fricka.

Anyways, my apologies for vomiting up my RL onto you, gentle reader. Shall we get to real reason you are here.. SL and shopping. As always, nothing gets me into SL like new tattoos from hyasynth of ~silentsparrow~. Her illustrations just make me happy. So have a look built around her offering for today’s Fifty Linden Friday.

Foxy

Today I’m featuring another gorgeous tattoo by hyasynth Tiramisu out for Fifty Linden Friday! You all know I can never pass up the chance to dress up with her tattoos!
I also splurged on a new head from Catwa, the Dyana. I fell in love with her cutesy look. I’m such a huge fan of Catwa’s heads, she has a great variety of faces to choose from and I can use my own skins with them! Hooray! And lastly, a quick note, this dress from Miel is older so it only comes in standard sizes but it worked fine with my SLink Physique body.

Urban Drow

RL or SL, I’m a sucker for a sale so I took full advantage of the winter sale at Sn@tch this weekend.  Sn@tch is a steal on a normal day with crazy low prices for fat packs of everything but throw in a sale and you can’t beat the bargains to be had.  If you hurry, you might still be able to catch it before it’s over tonight 2/4.

I felt like this punkish look was just begging to be worn by a Drow, so there you have it.

Petites

I’ve been vaguely aware of the Petites craze but never really knew much about them beyond the couple of snapshots I’d see pop up on blogs and what not.  The other day I was dropped a notecard about a HUD that allows skin makers to sell skins to modify the Petites.  I wasn’t sure if my skins would even translate well to the little avatar so I bought one to give it a go.  Of course, two seconds after I bought it I realized I needed hair and clothes and promptly went on the hunt for those. >.<  At any rate, the end result of my skins on the avatar isn’t awful and I may look into it if there’s some interest.

Autumn

*sweeps the cobwebs away* Yeah, I really dropped off the radar there.  It’s been ages since I really spent any length of time in SL and even longer since I last posted here… I’m not entirely sure what happened really.  I think I stopped posting because I got super into Tumblr and pretty much posted everything I had to say over there… and as for SL, well, I guess I just found myself no longer motivated to do anything so I gradually drifted away.  Isn’t it really sad when that happens?

But, I’ve found myself logging into SL  a bit more lately, mostly to decorate for autumn.  And that required dressing up in a suitably autumn-ish ensemble and wearing these glorious horns from Plastik.

Revenants of Fire and Ice

The new coats and pants from [][]TRAP[][] are made of pure win.  Actually everything made by Selos Dae is made of pure win.  In other news, Ruina Kessel continues to indulge my horn fetish with amazing new horn styles and ellantha Larsson updated my most favorite piercing ever.  <3

I should mention that this snapshot took an obscene amount of time to make between disappearing sculpties, my being stupid and SL being an ass.  But here it is, I hope it does the content justice.
