Dust Bowl

Hey! Sorry about the posts being a bit few and far between – the last several weeks have been a bit crazy for me. The AC was broken for all of May, and it was the hottest May on record here in Indiana, so I was pretty miserable. I also had to deal with what turned out to be my first Gout flare-up. Holy crud was that painful! I’ve been off my cane for a little over a week and all is fine, but I’ve been pretty tired on my days off and haven’t done much more than sleep. Anyway, enough about me – the SLURLs and credits are at the bottom!

So, I’ve hit a bit of a dry spell as far as blogging goes. There just hasn’t been much that has grabbed my attention and Lindens lately. Same goes for locations – nothing jumps out at me. So I decided to do something a little different and I used a backround I picked up a the current round of Limit8, from Shogun. It’s simple, and I like that. Oh well, style details and SLURLs at the bottom!

Grey December

Hello all! I hope that everyone had a great Christmas! Mine was pretty good – spent most of the day with my roomate’s folks, who are amazing people that treat me as one of their own. This month has been pretty tough for me (December usually is), between my job in retail and just some emotional trouble. Things are looking up, but I can’t shake the feeling that I’m falling apart from the inside out. I’m finally getting a car again, after nearly three years without – following an emotional breakdown in February 2015 I stopped driving and lost the car (it was pretty much a junker). I’ll also have health insurance again starting next month, so that’s great. Hopefully I’ll be able to afford a therapist so I can work through this crap – I feel myself shutting down again and it’s taking all I have to keep from falling to the bottom of that big, ugly pit again. I had a good cry today after returning home this evening, it’s true that you feel the full weight of having such a broken family this time of year. It sucks! This post was just something I did to keep me busy. Sorry about my ramblings; style details & SLURLs are at the bottom!

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!
