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.

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.

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!

I will admit the next item took some doing to get the look I wanted. SlackGirl included a set of eyeshadows and eyeliners and I wanted to wear both. In order to get this to happen since they are both defaulted to the eyeshadow layer of the Lelutka head, I had to go in and turn off the routing on the HUD. Once that was done I was able to route the eyeliner to the blush layer and then the eyeshadow to the eyeshadow layer. This created a super unique look and allowed me to show you both appliers from SlackGirl.

Numb

On July 20, 2017, the world lost one of the most influential musicians of my generation, Chester Bennington was found hanged in his home in California and for me, this was one of the hardest deaths I’ve had to figure out how to cope with. Picking a song from Linkin Park to go along with the styling in this blog is much harder than you’d ever think.  For me, every song they ever wrote was about breaking free of the box that holds you, becoming yourself, healing the wounds and fighting to be who and what you are meant to be. Linkin Park has been a huge influence on my life for 20 years and knowing that I will never again hear Chester belt out in his very unique voice a new tune that inspires you breaks my heart.

Indie Teepee is open right now and KraftWorks is there with this all new stage. I love this and it fits in so well with my tribute to Chester. The world is not a box is what the stage screams, with a rezzer to build it and a HUD to change the lighting with 9 colors there are so many things you can do with this stage, the possibilities are endless.

Want You Back

Today I close a chapter of my life, ready, willing, able to take the bold move and try a new career it’s made me think of other choices I’ve made, the results that have come from those choices and what I need to do to take back my life.

Sometimes as we’re moving forward it’s hard not to look back and wonder “what if”. Sometimes, however, looking back can make you see how far you’ve come. This pose from Foxcity available at Tres Chic was perfect to portray the feeling I wanted to convey. It is part of an 2 part, 14 pose set. They are bento and do require a bento viewer and bento hands to be fully appreciated. Each pose is sold individually or you can grab the two fatpacks and get 2 fatpack only special poses, one in each volume.

Life can take an unexpected turn, sometimes they are for the better and sometimes they put your whole world into a tailspin, leaving you to pick up the pieces of the puzzle, what is left of the life you once knew. Sometimes it would just be easier to run away, hide, pretend to be someone new, maybe disappear to some beach, somewhere.

My boyfriend is just as big a shopaholic as I am and we headed over to Kustom 9 the day it opened. While there we ran into Agata and the matching bikini and swim trunks they had on offer. We sat there and debated for a bit on which color to buy and decided that out of the 6 colors we would probably wear 4 of the colors regularly and that made our decision, fat pack it was. The women’s set is fitmesh and fits both Slink bodies as well as Maitreya.

I love Riot because she really listens to her customers and works hard to give them what they ask for. The fatpack of these shorts is enormous. 28 solid colors, 15 fatpack exclusive colors and complete control over how they look. If you choose to only buy one color you will have the ability to change only the waistband color and turn the tie on and off, the fatpack is so worth all the extra options.

I have been blogging for Stealthic since around this time last year, I bought a hair at Hair Fair, called Daughter and fell absolutely in love with it. I took a chance and messaged the creator and then the blog manager, asking if there was a slight chance that I could blog for them, officially. They said yes and I have never regretted my decision to blog for such an amazing designer. When I started seeing men’s hair posted on my Facebook page but they weren’t showing up in my Blogotex page I contacted Stealthic, because I really wanted to be able to show off the amazing hair being created. What I love about Stealthic is the style HUD included. When you buy one hair it’s like getting four, what could be better? This hair, actually inspired by Gac Akina, the creator of Stray Dog, will be available at The Men’s Department on June 5.

I’ve actually been waiting for the right moment to use this song and the two new releases from ChicModa finally gave me my opening. I have been seriously slacking on my blog lately. I don’t know if I’m hitting another slump and maybe will end up taking a break or if I just have so much going on with other things. My niece got married on this past Saturday, I’ve taken on a position as a hostess at Frank’s Place Jazz Club which I am so excited about. I’ve spent the past year on my blogging platform, cut off from the rest of Second Life, focusing on building my blog and making it better and better. Since I began dating Maxe I’ve decided I’d like to get back into the real world a bit, I still love blogging and I will continue to do it but I might not be as active as I have in the past.

I am so excited to show you the two items from ChicModa that were just released. First up we have an all new top. Available at Cosmopolitan from May 21 to June 3. This top comes in 10 individual colors for 189L or a fatpack of colors for 1099L.
The skirt is the BishBox release and will not be available anywhere but the BishBox. If you missed the pre-order you can still pick it up for the full price of 3000L and then remember to pre-order June’s box for only 1500L.

Although it has been released and is no longer available at the reduced, pre-order price you can still grab this pack at full price of only 3000L. It is totally worth every linden.

Included from Modish is Vega in 5 skin tones and 4 brow options as well as 10 lipsticks (not pictured).

From the moment I saw the advertisement for this gown I knew I was going to own it. From Cynful for Collabor88 each color comes with a solid and ombre tone. I chose the gorgeous blue tone that has a gray ombre option. This gown is stunning and there is an optional back necklace sold separately.

How Would You Feel

I know that Easter is over, I really do and I’ve actually been working on this blog or specifically the pictures for 3 days, nothing was coming out right and it was driving me insane. Because it did take me so long to come up with the right pictures I missed a couple of important things but other things are still very viable so, forgive me my perfectionism.

Bloom is now open, this event is so much fun and full of spring. Riot is there with an all new spring-time, sexy and fun dress. This dress comes in 26 colors, she admits to not being able to get rid of colors so be ready to see more in the future. Each dress is 199L or you can grab the fatpack for an amazingly low price of 1299L. The fatpack includes all 26 colors and a bonus of 26 foil colors that are not available individually. You have until April 30 to get to bloom and get these amazing items. This dress fits Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, and TMP.

The decor, there is so much. Most of it is from the gachas at Bloom from various amazing creators. First up, we have this super cute bunny planter from MoOH! only at Dark Side. It is a gacha and the white bunny planter is one of two rare items. It is 40L a pull and so worth it if you love cute, little outdoor decor.

M.Law, Second Spaces, and hive all have fabulous outdoor decor gachas at Bloom. M.Law kind of made me laugh because as I was getting ready to play I said “no way will I get the rare” and I got it first. It is just decor, there are no poses built into it but it’s so pretty with its little shelf of plants and the field of flowers.

So April Catwa Powder Pack released yesterday, the items included in this box are absolutely amazing. Glam Affair is now a part of Powder Pack as well, so that’s fabulous since they are one of my favorite skin/makeup creators. Pre-orders for the box are, of course, done but you can still grab the box at full price for only 3000L and let me tell you it is worth at least that. Pink Fuel is back with a brand new set of skins, although they are fairly dark for my taste personally, they are stunningly made and are absolutely gorgeous on my Catwa Catya head.

I have not one, but two items from the fabulous Just Magnetized. First, we have the awesome Insta Beauty pack available in the April Powder Pack. It is a set of freckles, blushes, and highlighters and after much fighting with my Catwa HUD I was able to apply the freckles, which are tintable through the Catwa HUD to match your skin perfectly, and the highlighter. Since there is an upper and lower layer on the Catwa head you can apply two items to one section, just keep playing with it until you get it.
The Second item is at Appliquè and is a stunning set of ombre lip colors. Again, play with the HUD to get the glossy layer, add the gloss first on the upper layer, save it in the HUD then apply the lip color to the lower layer and you have a stunning lip.

Last but not least from this month’s Powder Pack is the ombre lashes from #adored. With 12 lashes available to choose from and tintable through your Catwa HUD, they are stunning.
