Don’t Tell Me I’m Cute When I’m Angry

Because I already know.

Feeling cute enough to punch someone

This whole outfit was basically an excuse to wear this pleated skirt from HOC Industries.  I comes with a HUD for changing the colours and pattern but I ended up with black and grey because that’s what always happens when I try to dress myself without a plan.

I’m determined to get my money’s worth out of this rainbow hair pack I brought on a whim though

This top’s a full perm kit from Meli Imako.  I think Redgrave and a few other places have regular-perm versions.  Honestly I clip through it all over the place.  I tried making my own alpha layer for it but there are a lot of spots that are sometimes exposed and sometimes not.  I still wear it though because I love the design.

Sitting at the makeup table looking totes adorbs.

I took these photos in the Rockstar Princess skybox from Dirty Boxes since it kind of goes with the “cute with attitude” vibe of the outfit.  This skybox is a bit costlier and prim-ier than I like these days but it’s full of cute details and animations.  If there’s one thing I’m a sucker for it’s animations for things you don’t need to do in SL.

Wrong Way

Today I’m taking photos in my new favourite top, the Anika Tank from R3volt.  I also took the photos at the R3volt main store because, well, I was there.

This is absolutely my natural hair color.  I’m half Anime, on my mother’s side.

The top comes with 15 different graphics for only$150, which is the kind of stingy value for money I can get behind. I’m also loving these heeled sneakers from Sin & Virtue.  I want them in ALL the colours and patterns but at $495 a pop I might just stick with the one pair.

The system pants are kind of letting the team down though.  I love these jeans but it’s probably time I found some good mesh ones.

Here’s a better shot of the tank where I’m not sitting weird.

I’m not showing it off  here but the street has a good post-war trashed look in a steel barrels and wrecked tanks kind of way.  The bike came from a bike rezzer around the corner.  It had them in different sizes which is good since 2nd me is usually too short for them.

The sunrise is never far away when your bike can fly.

It Used To Matter

Today’s photos were taken at Virtual Decay (much more attractively photographed by Honour McMillan here).  It’s a grungy urban decay themed sim built around the Virtual Decay store.

This outfit’s really about these Suicidal Unborn shorts.  I love the texture and I picked this top to show off the high waist.  They line up pretty nicely.

Speaking of this top, I love the idea but not so much the execution.  It tends to stick out in weird ways in some poses but more annoyingly I can’t get an alpha texture to match it.  The same bit of me will be sticking through it in one pose and exposed in another so you can’t win whether you mask it or not.

I still wear it though because I like it but if you can’t stand that kind of thing it’s probably a no-go.

Looking pensive in an alley.

A lot of the textures around here look good at a distance but are pretty blurry up close.  Not sure if that was a problem with my computer not loading textures properly or if they’re just like that.  Wow I’m really complainy today aren’t I?

A closeup of  the studs on the back of the ankle boots.

These ankle boots are a group gift from Lethal Couture.  I like their distinctive style and for 0L there’s no reason NOT to have them.

These boots aren’t made for walking, though.

Sunday Afternoon

Today I’m back to my regularly scheduled lack of colour:

and coffee!

I love crop jackets and this mesh one from coldLogic comes with the stripey top.  Luckily you can wear them separately, having the versatility gives you way better value for money, especially if you like mixing and matching like I do.

I think I need some low-prim clutter for those shelves

I took these photos in the small but beautiful “For Eku” prefab from Scarlet Creative.  I’m in love with this skybox, it’s gorgeously detailed for not too many prims.

the view is beautiful too

Cherry Blossom

Today I’m breaking out some much-needed colour courtesy of the gorgeous April dress from Celoe and the garden at Kittycat’s Cafe in Cherry Blossom:

Colours!

To be honest I had trouble playing this look straight.  My instinct was to chuck on some spikey jewellery or lace-up boots or punk hair or something.  I decided screw it, I need to stop hedging my looks and girly it the hell up.

pictured: girlying it the hell up

I do love this dress although my underarms look a bit weird because I had to set my body fat to zero to fit it.  SL’s getting more realistic all the time!

A better look at the hair and earrings

I thought I’d go all out on the look with these bow earrings.  They’re actually colour-changing hair bows from Truth’s Rayne hair that I re-purposed.  Still not sure if they’re cute or silly but either way it works for me.

Then Again I’m Half Crow

Today I decided to stretch my wings in a little farm field at the Sand Hill Country:

Oh my god that scary guy's still here.  Maybe I'll come back later.

Oh my god that scary guy’s still here. Maybe I’ll come back later.

I used the Wasteland windlight setting that comes with Firestorm, which I somehow picked accidentally thinking it was the sim’s default.  It looks like there’s a glowey prim over the sky that gives everything a kind of surreal look (and that dark halo around me) no matter what your settings are.

Just kidding.  We’re cool.

The wings are some old sculpted angel wings from Sensations.  They have a variety of positions and textures  and they flap when you fly, which is nice.

I’m on a roof.

The long nails were going for a claws look.  It’s  a shame I couldn’t wear them separately from the rings though.

I’m Pretty Big Around Here

So today’s a casual blazer and jeans look.  It’s very December.  The photos are taken in a cute model village/train set called Sweetbay Designs Garden Gauge Layout.

Big city girl in a small town. Click for a bigger, wider shot.

Like leather jackets I’ve had a hard time finding a good blazer that’s done up.  This one is a full perm builder’s kit from Meli Imako but it’s no more expensive than most retail stuff is.  I had to tweak the alpha layer to stop me clipping through a lot but that’s mesh for you.

I also chucked on some leopard print shoes to add a bit of character and contrast to the look.  Then I peered in people’s windows:

“Hello in there? Excuse me I’m looking for my dog, Clifford.”

There’s something charming about making a model village in Second Life, besides the fun out-of-scale photos.  It makes me want to build one now.

I brought this tiny car to pick up my clown friends

These shoes do look good as long as you don’t bend your ankle too far.

The main attraction is the detailed trains.  I originally found this place while looking for a steam train for a photo I wanted to take.  I found a store with awesome trains but they were all scaled-down on display tables.  Cool idea, I thought, but I need to find the full size versions.  Turns out they were full size.

Elementary, my dear reader

There’s also a little tractor plowing a field with an invisible-pony-riding scarecrow (it scared me, but then again I’m half crow) but I ended up with a picture of me on a boat instead:

So...um...where do I sleep?

Going Ombre

…with colour-tipped hair from a Burley Magnate (members only) hair pack:

Black tips with a black top.  Way to think this through.

It comes with tips in ten different colours, so naturally I chose the least colourful one 😛

The shoes are my old Hi Tops from Urban Bomb Unit but to be honest I’m on the look out for some new less scripty ones so sims don’t complain as much.

Also my hair’s clipping into everything in this shot.  It turns out that happens when I look left.

This is a sheer top from Chemistry over a tube top.  It comes in different lengths and with optional opaque stripes (for people who don’t own boob tubes).

what, you don’t colour your eyes to match your outfit?

These are mesh eyes from Damien Fate. Although at this distance they don’t look that special the iris textures are pretty nice up close, and the crazy amount of customising you can do makes them great value for money.

The photos were taken in another  Scarlet Creative house.

Wish I had a Motorbike

I’m also carrying on my tradition of dark clothes and poor lighting:

photos taken in the OBF Urban Skybox

It’s suprisingly hard to find good closed jackets in SL but this leather jacket from Exodus is just perfect.  I say this just about every post but it’s one of those things I’ve been looking for  for years.

It does clip into my stomach in a lot of poses though so I guess I either  need to make a new alpha layer or start sucking it in for photos.

After Work Drinks

I’ve probably said before but I love officewear.  This blog would probably be 90% blazers and pencil skirts if I could find some halfway decent office locations to take photos in.

Today’s outfit is a loose tank and leather skirt and is probably the most mesh I’ve worn at once:

The textures on the skirt are great but they didn’t really come out in any of the photos

I was a bit worried about buying this tucked tank from Tee*fy at first because it’d only work with skirts and pants that end at just the right place but it turns out it’s working with a lot of stuff, especially when you can wear a wide belt to tidy up the join.  I’d love if they had a lace or sheer version though to pair with a tube top for a more clubbing look.

It’s the subtle textures that really make something look good

I also finally stopped being cheap and brought a copy of this skin that doesn’t have the blue eyeshadow baked in so I can be a bit more gentle on the makeup.  So yay!

The real stars though are these gorgeous wedges from Maitreya Gold:

The new loves of my life

The toes seem a little off to me but otherwise they look amazing and the skin matching has to be the easiest I’ve ever used.  Although my skin came out pretty red in these photos so it’s not matching so great here unfortunately.

Totally appropriate table dancing courtesy of my Vista AO and, like, two beers.
