One More Light

I lost my grandfather Sunday, August 13, 2017, to his unending battle with cancer. It started as prostate cancer and moved into his bones, he was frail and fragile at the end and in so much pain. I’ve lost not one, but two of the most important men in my life this year, my step-father in January and now my grandfather. They taught me so much about life it’s hard to imagine them gone. The song at the end of this video is from Linkin Park, another great lost this year, Chester Bennington had a way of making you feel his music, you didn’t just listen to Linkin Park, you felt the emotions. This song is very emotional for me because the lights around me keep going out.

When I first saw that Reve Obscura was working on a brand new gacha set I knew it would be mine. A total of 6 poses with props in all with 5 commons and 1 rare and at only 50L a pull you definitely want to collect these. This one happens to be rare and it comes with the speaker, guitar, and cigarette. This pose set is available at the main store location.

I’ve said it before and probably will say it a lot, but I absolutely love when 2 creators make items that work so well together. Today it’s a brand new top from Vinyl available at Mesh Body Addicts Fair until August 21 and these awesome pants from Riot for 70’s Punk Rewind. Xayalith, the top from Vinyl comes in 17 individual colors and the Jennifer Skinnies from Riot comes in 40 kinds of leather, 14 plaids, and 18 suedes. The HUD also includes 9 metal options. For both items, you can purchase them individually or as a fatpack.

These shoes went perfectly with the look I was trying to create. From KC Couture, the HUD options on this pair of shoes are out of this world. With 40 color options for each piece of the shoe, 5 metals, and 4 metallic wedge options you can customize these shoes for just about anything.

West End Chloe is the shape that made me fall in L-O-V-E with my Catwa Catya head. Out of the box it is perfection, this one has some slight modifications but overall the face is mostly how it comes out of the box. I prefer a taller shape so I made my body a bit different.

Stealthic is always looking for new ways to make the hair he creates new and fresh. The newest option is the “animated hair”. Each hair comes with a style HUD so you have the option of 4 different styles but now you can toggle them to change randomly, just like real life. Who ever leaves their hair alone, really!? There is a GIF below this description so you can see the animation in action. This hair is part of the birthday round of Collabor88 going on right now!

This gorgeous skin is from 7 Deadly Skins and was released for Aloha Fair, which ended on August 10. I blogged this the other day and dummy me forgot to change skins in my excitement over the pose, outfit, hair, etc and my complete and total lack of concentration due to the grief of losing my grandfather. This skin is still amazing either way.

I haven’t blogged a set of nails in a while but when I put this look together I knew only one place would have nails to go with it; Dark Passions – Koffin Nails.

I woke up this morning to a notification on Facebook that my previous blog post had been marked as spam or against community standards and was removed, there is nothing in that blog or picture that is against community standards and sometimes Facebook makes me want to rip my hair out. I’ve countered them as it not being spam but who knows when they will pull their heads out and stop attacking people who portray themselves as avatars on Facebook. I don’t know about you, but I spend far more time on my SL Facebook than I do on my RL Facebook, I click ads, by things, watch videos, see what’s trending on this page than I ever will on my RL page.
I didn’t start out taking these pictures yesterday with the intent of slamming Facebook or the community standards protocols but it is what it is. What I did intend on doing is posting a picture of some amazing finds from Vintage Fair, Collabor88 and so much more, so that’s what I am going to do. I have to admit that I love being a blogger, one of the best parts is getting early access to events, shopping lag-free and getting my hands on the amazing creations that Second Life designers put together. I don’t get early access to everything, but that’s ok I still love shopping, it is definitely one of my biggest hobbies in Second Life. Blogging for me isn’t being sponsored and getting freebies, it is an outlet for my photography and a way to give you a glimpse of the stunning things that people make that I could not do in a million years, I know it’s not my forte to create, I’ve tried.

Vintage Fair opened on June 10 and there are some absolutely amazing things. This dress is just one example of the things you can find at Vintage Fair. Kaithleen’s released this dress for Vintage Fair and I have always loved the Rockabilly, Pinup, 50’s style. I had to have this dress. Each color comes with a solid and polka dot version with a HUD to change the frill. It is an absolutely stunning rendition.

With the right dress found I needed the perfect shoes to compliment it and who else but Breathe would have just the right shoes? I love these shoes so much I skipped right over the individual colors and went straight for the fatpack, I love shoes so much, maybe it’s because I can only wear flats in RL. Whatever my shoe obsession is creators like Breathe bring my love of shoes to life.

My first go round of the Vintage Fair I saw this cool pose with an amazing 50’s cherry red T-bird. I didn’t buy it when I saw it because I wasn’t sure at first when or how I would use it, but then I got my hands on the Lucky’s Drive-In set from unKindness at Collabor88.  I went back to Vintage knowing what I was looking for, but I couldn’t for the life of me remember who had made this pose. Two days I wandered aimlessly, (ok nothing so dramatic) to find the stunning T-bird.

I blog for 7 Deadly Skins as an official blogger, I was digging through my skin packs and realized I had the skin available at Vintage Fair as well, how perfect? Farrah comes in two tone sets, light/medium and tanned/dark. This skin is based on the AK mesh head but I’m wearing it on my Catwa Catya bento mesh head. This is an omega head applier and does include the omega body appliers.

Pet Shop Blues

I am a huge slacker, not on purpose of course, but it happened nonetheless. I was given an amazing gacha set to blog a few weeks ago and I showed Maxe who laughed and had an awesome idea for the pictures. Well, RL got in the way and the time we needed to shoot the pictures kept slipping through our fingers, so even though this gacha is no longer available at the event you can still go play the machine at the main store and get your hands on a super cute setup.

When Maxe saw this super cute Pet Toy Shop gacha set up he said “wouldn’t it be funny if I stepped in dog poop while we were shopping?” and the idea was born. I set the pet shop up with various animals that I’ve gotten over the years from both Jian and HEXtraordinary and of course the sho\p items themselves. The gacha has 17 commons and 1 rare.

That’s a lot of stuff, right? Well, I’m not done yet. Maxe got all dressed up to take me shopping to get a new pet and some accessories and ended up stepping in dog crap, I laughed so hard I had tears rolling down my face. He wasn’t as amused.

Can’t Fight the Moonlight

Sometimes you get something and look at it from every angle, trying to decide how best to set up the shot, prop poses being some of the most difficult, yet the most fun for me. I love a challenge and I was presented one, but once the inspiration struck it was a simple matter of gathering the items necessary.

Something New & Something Erotic are participating in this year’s Pose Fair and this is one of the 5 exclusive items you can grab during the event. The prop includes the moon, doves, beam and pose and can only be found at Pose Fair 2017.

Hopeful: Anti-Bullying Awareness

I recently saw a post on Facebook that completely made me ill, the level of degradation, the words of hate in the name of funny just made me angry. I was so angry that I went and bought the outfit that was the pun in their private/public joke.
It is NEVER ok to bully anyone. Whether it is a peer, a designer in Second Life, or one child to another. We can all do our part to stop bullying. My part was “applauding” these people for their hateful comments, I fought back with kindness and then I supported the designer that was the brunt of their joke.

This is the outfit in question, the one made fun of and the comments were so rude and hateful that they don’t deserve to be revisited. Personally, I love this outfit so much I went to Collabor88 and bought the entire fatpack of both the top and the shorts. I think she did a fabulous job of creating this set.

Outfit: Atomic – Chill Out Sweatshirt and Shorts – Collabor88

I also visited Shoetopia and grabbed these awesome trainers from Vale Koer. As with any product by this fabulous designer, the HUD is extensive and gives you so many options of how to wear them, including flat and tip-toe.

This skin is from another creator, on that I do officially blog for and one I consider a friend. She’s been told her skins are horrible and that she should just give up. I, on the other hand, find her skins stunning, fun, and unique. The options that come with Lumae skins are by far some of the best. Plain and freckled, appliers for just about everything out there. The prices are extremely reasonable and there are 10 skin tone varieties to choose from. This particular skin is called Ruby and is available at The Avenue. Makeup free and ready for your Catwa only head, it’s perfect.

At the Movies

Today’s blog was not inspired by a song, not the title, not anything. Honestly, I wasn’t a 100% sure what to call this one, then I remembered the old acronym K.I.S.S. Also, I got an amazing build from a fantastic creator and I wanted to be able to show it all off, so this is a very different blog from my usual style.

KraftWork created this amazing theater, and as of the writing of this blog the event it was originally scheduled to be released at has been delayed. Draftsman has been rescheduled for April 20, 2017. When it opens I will provide the LM.
