New York, New York

I have always wanted to visit New York, I guess I did when I was a baby but obviously, I don’t remember that. Growing up as a navy brat, traveling and moving all the time, I think I developed a serious case of wanderlust and I just want to go all the time. However, that takes money and yeah I don’t have that yet!

Since I can’t make my dream of traveling come true in RL I can at least take pictures in places I’d like to visit thanks to some amazing creators, today I visited a subway entrance in New York City thanks to Pseudo. This set of backdrops is a gacha available right now at SaNaRae. There are 6 commons and 1 rare to win.

Don’t Leave

Spring is in the air, a time of renewal and rebirth and what better way to do that than treat yourself to a whole new look? Absolut Creation, the makers of Adam and Eve bring you the EVE’olution bento mesh head, the beta version only from Absolut Creation.

Absolut Creation, in the wake of the mesh body craze, created a full mesh body for men and women. It included hands, feet, skins and so many other features. They were fairly inexpensive compared to other mesh body kits out there and included far more. Being Omega compatible meant that you could wear skins, polishes, etc to match your tastes as well.

One tiny issue with Eve is that there are few clothes made out there specifically for the body, but the alpha layer options and the ability to use Omega appliers makes it slightly easier. In this picture, I’m wearing a standard-sized, fitmesh dress and it looks superb. The dress my MoOH! is available at the main store on a 50% discount, making it only 75L until April 20. It comes in fitmesh sizes XXS-L, standard sizes XXS-L, Slink, and Maitreya.

I have a vacation this week, as of today I will have no children, no husband, and no job to deal with. To me this is a real vacation, I don’t need to go anywhere. I’ve been at my job for 2 years and this is the first real vacation I’ve had, a day off here or there or 4 days off with the influenza being the only break I’ve had. What this means is lots of time to catch up on blogging, maybe do a little housework and just not have any responsibilities other than those that I want.

Chemical Princess has released this brand new dress for the Tie Me Up event, this dress is very different than her typical dresses in the fact that there are color options, amazing colors. There are 6 transparent, 6 non-transparent, 5 see-through mesh patterns, 7 solid trims, and 7 mesh trims.

See that guy sitting in the back, beer in hand? The woman next to him? He may not look like much but he’s some big deal and she’s his wife or lawyer or something, I only catch so much in passing conversation, you might call it eavesdropping, but I need to know how to make sure customers are happy, it means bigger tips. He’s a good tipper, even if he is a tad bit grumpy, I’ll just keep the beers coming and maybe he’ll lighten up.

I had the outfit picked out and kinda had an idea of what I wanted to do but wasn’t sure where to do it. I suddenly remembered that Bad Unicorn had released an amazing after party skybox for TMD last month so I went to find it, when I realized it was currently out of my budget I almost cried. Instead of coming up with a new idea I sent a plea to my friend Brennan, of the blog “These Conversations Kill“. He writes a pretty amazing blog and when I asked if he had this set he let me borrow it!

Fire rained from the sky that day, bomb after bomb, exploded around them as they sat huddled in the tiny shelter her father had built for that exact eventuality. The tiny baby lay, curled in her mother’s arms, screaming at the sound of blasts landing all around them.
That baby now stood, a woman in her own kingdom of ruin, surveying the land and people within it, her sword held to her side, the years of living without the sun having bleached her skin and hair almost completely white. The coating her her pupilless eyes the only protection against the harmful radiation, squinting against the faint sun peeking through the remnants of the radiation cloud.

Manic Monday

Monday is typically my busiest day of the week at work, but every once in a while I get to take a Monday off, like today. Instead of working today, however, I get to show you some amazing new items from some fabulous creators.

I am so excited to announce that I am blogging for KraftWork, an all original mesh decor store in Second Life. I have not one but two items to show you from KraftWork today. The wall and the hanging wall art. First, the wall. I am ALWAYS looking for an amazing mesh wall to build my scenes with and I finally have one. This is a rezzer system and will give you the option of rezzing 1-11 panels, once rezzed you can align the pieces through a script and change the texture as well simply by touching the panel you would like to color. There are 5 different wall panel systems available.

This is a completely customizable piece of art and you can change any of the picture textures to your own texture by dragging and dropping or by selecting the face in the edit menu.

Laying in the surf, the sun setting behind her his tie her only companion as she feels the tide crash over her mostly naked body. The warmth of the sand contrasting the chill of the waves. Her eyes drift closed as she pulls her lip between her teeth, ‘what an amazing day’ she thinks to herself, sad only that he has had to leave.

I was extremely grateful that I’d kept my very first mesh head in my inventory when I saw what the very first official blog item was from Lumae, a Lelutka applier. I will admit I haven’t worn my Lelutka Ever head in a very long time but it’s still a beautifully made, pre-Bento mesh head. This skin is an older release from Lumae and has been re-released at The Avenue this month with a 50% discount for only 245L. This amazing price is only during The Avenue event and will not be available at the main store or marketplace.
Available in 10 tones and including a Lelutka head applier, Maitreya, Belleza, Slink, TMP and Omega body applier in plain, cleavage and push up with and without freckles, AMD Baby Bump applier, ear applier for LOGO, Soul Uni and Bentbox, Lumae Leevi ears in 3 sizes with matching tones, a set of lipsticks made specifically for Yulia, a faceless system skin and a regular and Bento modifiable shape. This skin was made for pre-Bento heads and as such there are slight things that may not work perfectly with your Bento head. It doesn’t look bad but the lips are slightly larger and the lipsticks may not always apply right.

Milk Chan of Besom Hair has had a real life emergency that has led her to plead for help to pay a $2500 USD vet bill. Her mother-in-law recently passed away due to a long illness and begged them to take in her cat Spirit. Spirit was very ill and they rushed him to the vet to find out he needed some very expensive procedures to save his life. Milk has started a GoFundMe site to help raise money and she reduced all hair packs at the main store to 50L to help raise the money. So please find it in your generous nature to help one of SL’s own!

As of the writing of this blog the Mercury eyes are not available at the main store, but since the event just ended give it a few days and I’m sure they will be, I will update as soon as I know. In the meantime go check out the other eyes available from Mesange, they are all amazing and I honestly don’t know how she comes up with so many amazing eyes.

Eyes: Mesange – Mercury Eyes 1

The brand new round of Cosmopolitan opens today and ZOZ is there with two all new nail packs, Drops and Drops Soft polish. Available in Maitreya, Slink, Omega, ZOZ mesh nail applier and an all new Vista Bento applier or a fat pack including all, which if you wear multiple body parts like I do is essential for you to get.

Bad Moon Rising

She waits in silence, her trusty gun sitting in her lap, easy to aim in case the threat comes back. This world so different from the one she knew, evil and chaos ruled now and she was always ready for whatever came at her. The moon cast an eerie pink glow, the skies filled with poison. She stirs restlessly, hearing a sound she crouches, gun at the ready. Whatever is coming for her better be bigger and badder than her or they wouldn’t walk away.
It’s really hard for a girl to look good in a post-apocalyptic world but with the help of a few amazing designers I think I pulled it off. When I woke up this morning and saw I had the new Uber blog pack from Vinyl I couldn’t wait to log in and start creating my look. I knew how I wanted everything to look it was just a matter of finding all the right pieces.

The first time I saw these all new backdrops from Minimal I knew I had to have them. 4 separate backdrops available right now at Uber, or you can do what I did and get the whole fatpack. I just know I’ll use these more than once. Well made, 3D mesh creates the perfect venue for your pictures, post-apocalyptic or not.

Backdrop: Minimal – Illusion Background 4 – Uber

The mask and top are from Vinyl and come with a HUD for the individual pack that includes a solid color and a graphic color, the fatpack includes all 16 colors and the bra can be worn without the turtleneck. It’s a fantastic set and I definitely recommend the fatpack because you’ll want all the options that come with it. The mask is unrigged and can be resized through a touch script.

Top: Vinyl – Scars Turtleneck and Bra – Uber

Mask: Vinyl – Neo Meddy Mask – Uber

Okay, so knowing what top and backdrop I was going to use didn’t complete my look and I had to find just the right pants, shoes, hair etc. I scanned around Uber until my eyes fell on these fabulous leather pants from Azuchi, available in 10 different colors/patterns I couldn’t choose just one so I got the fatpack and at only 1200L it’s a real steal! It doesn’t say on the pack or on any advertising that I can find but I am wearing these pants with my Maitreya body and they fit flawlessly, there is only one fit included in the pack.

Pants: Azuchi – Oichi Pants Black – Uber

These shoes, I never go wrong with Vale Koer and when I saw these sneakers it wasn’t even a question of which color, fatpack city here I come! At only 799L the fatpack allows you to completely customize these shoes to your style. They are fit for men and women too.

Shoes: Vale Koer – Neoprime Trainers – Uber

Now I needed the perfect pose to pull together my look and trying a few I already had that just didn’t do it for me I headed over to Poseidon, available individually or in a pack of six, these sniper rifle poses were just what I was looking for.

Pose: Poseidon – Rifle 3

This hair from Truth, I couldn’t pass up, the high-sided pigtails with the messy curls and hairband color change HUD was just too much for me. I needed this hair in my life and so now I do. Truth has included their own face mask with this hair and it also has it’s own texture change HUD.

Hair: Truth – Kyoko – Uber

Glam Affair is part of Fifty Linden Friday this week with two amazing Catwa appliers. Zoella is available in either America or Jamaica tone this week for only 50L. Grab both you won’t be sorry and with Maitreya having Glam Affair skins built into the HUD you won’t have to worry about matching your skin or buying other appliers. I also wear Vista Bento hands and Glam Affair is also included in that HUD as well.

I very rarely use the dark sclera eyes from Banana Banshee, but this was one of those moments that it seemed perfect. All Banana Banshee eyes come with white and dark scleras and this set comes in 11 colors, grey being the dollarbie/demo option to try out how they work for you.

Eyes: Banana Banshee – Hely Sand Dark – Lost and Found

Using the broken nose applier from Chemical Princess was inspired once I removed the mask to show off the skin, this tattoo comes with 3 different color options and is Omega compatible as well as system layers for you non-mesh users.

Tattoo: Chemical Princess – Broken Nose Dark

A badass girl needs some badass nails and Dark Passions – Koffin Nails had exactly what I was looking for. Released for an event back in October they are still perfect for just about any badassery you might have in you. They come in Slink, Maitreya and Omega appliers or as a fatpack for those of us that use multiple body parts.

I am so excited about today’s post, mostly because I am now an official blogger for 1313 Mockingbird Lane and I have her brand new bacon and eggs gacha to share with you, but we’ll get to that. Spring is slow coming to the northwest United States this year so I love that I can have spring and summer all year round in Second Life. Today I’m dreaming of traveling, to some exotic, warm location.

This pose is what inspired everything else, Chic Traveller is available at The Hipster Fair right now from Image Essentials and once I had the pose picked out everything else just kind of fell into place. This is a Bento enabled pose which means, although you don’t HAVE to have Bento hands to make it work you do have to have a Bento enabled viewer. It comes with the satchel pose prop, cell phone and a camera you can wear around you neck (not pictured). This is a beautifully made pose and perfect for the woman or man on the go.

So I had the outfit picked out and I knew what jewelry I wanted so that was easy but I didn’t know what hair would feature everything so well. So I popped on over to #Foxy and found this one! I love this hair and when I saw it I went on the hunt. I found it at Shiny Shabby and it has a style HUD with it for two different looks and optional bobby pins.
