Fresh Snow

Hello! Sorry about the gap between posts – my plate has been a bit full in RL. New promotion, and it’s the Holidays (I work retail). Hours have started getting crazy and I’m pretty tired. It’s not all bad though – I decided, on a whim, to bleach my hair and tone it nearly white. I love it! It’s a nice change, since I’ve never dyed my hair before (okay, once before, but it was what was left in my sister’s highlighting kid and it was ORANGE. I was sixteen), and I’ve pretty much had the same look for ten plus years now. Anyway, credits and SLURLs at the bottom!

Dead End City

Another post, another set of photos of me in a destroyed metropolis. I just love these kinds of locations in Second Life! This particular one – Dead End City – is probably my favorite yet. It’s full of tons of little details, and it has distinct districts that make it feel a bit more real than others. I do want to make it clear, however – this is a live RP city, and it’s very much an adult SIM, so if that bothers you, it may not be the place for you. But everyone was friendly, and they encouraged photography, just be respectful of the residents and everyone will have fun! Anyway, that’s all for now – SLURLs and style details at the bottom!

Foggy Morning Run

Okay, so I want to apologize for the poorly rendered bus in the background of the first pic – I didn’t realize it was that bad until I went to edit the photos this evening (I took them last night)

Now that that’s out of the way, I want to talk about my… nipples! Aren’t these great?! They’re from Noche, and were available at the Fetish Fair, but are now in the mainstore. I didn’t really think much of them until I decided to try the demo, and I was blown away. They’re sexy! AND super easy! Never thought that I’d be this obsessed about my virtual nipples…

Oh, and a note about this SIM, it’s called Hinansho, and I promise to do another post with clearer lighting. It’s such a beautifully done place, everyone should really go check it out!

Autumnal Stroll

So, it’s officially autumn in the Northern Hemisphere now, though it hasn’t felt like it here in Indiana – it’s been hotter over the past week than it has been for most of the summer! Oh well, thank god for air conditioning in my apartment, and locations like this in Second Life! This SIM is called Habitat Springs, and it’s easily one of my favorite places now. The windlight is great, there are so many photogenic and gorgeous little niches, even the sounds are fantastic! Seriously, go visit, and take the time to explore – it feels way bigger than it actually is.

Now, on to the look! First off, I want to say that I love the Andrea head from LeLutka. It’s so smooth and perfect, with none of the weirdness I’ve come across in the mouth area like I’ve encountered with other Bento heads. If there was one thing I had to pick to critique, it’s the eyes – they just don’t respond a ton to sliders, and that’s too bad. But, I can’t not recommend this head. The HUD is the best there is, in my humble opinion, the animations are extremely well done (AND they’re all included!), and it even comes with some really nice AO-type whole-head animations that work great with the Bento animations I have loaded into my Firestorm AO. Right now there aren’t a ton of appliers, but it’s LeLutka, so it won’t take long until we’ll have more options than we know what to do with. Right now I’m really liking the appliers available from Modulus. I’m happy to see “older” skins that I really enjoyed coming to a new head, and the Malik skin I’m wearing here seems particularity suited for this head. Clef de Peau and Tableau Vivant are a few others that already have some appliers out as well, so check them out!

Pretty much the entirety of the rest of this look is Belleza, the Shea outfit available at Men Only Monthly. It’s not the most creative outfit I’ve put together, I know, but it just works for what I had in mind, and looks damn nice, too. I’ve always been a dandy at heart, and Second Life lets me indulge that side of me. I threw on some rings available at the current round of Pocket Gacha from Meva, and I called it a day.

But enough rambling about SIMs and heads, the links and SLURLs are at the bottom of the post!

So today’s post isn’t exactly the most inspired, but I really liked this SIM, and it’s closting July 5th, so I just had to do a post on it. It’s a wonderfully exotic, beachy locale with probably my favorite Windlight setting so far. Seriously, check it out.

Also featured in this post is this great skin from 7 Deadly s{K}ins. It’s just L$75 for group members and it includes Omega body appliers. I’m also wearing one of Modulus’ Skin Fair items, Jarek, and I have to say I really like this hair and hairbase. Finish it off with some awesome shorts from Ascend and what is probably the best-fitting tee on the grid from Cold Ash, and I’m ready to have fun in the sun!

As always, credits and SLURLs at the bottom of the post!

City of One

Good morning/evening/afternoon! This will be a more neutral post compared to my last one, promise! Back on to the fashion, and what is now probably my favorite city sim in SL! The SSOC sim is new to me, and it’s just great as a backdrop for almost any kind of post. Today I went for a business casual, sexy bearded guy look. Because why not? It’s SL and I can look however I want!

Anyway, credits and SLURLs at the bottom! Much love!
