You Can Pull Off Anything If You Look Confident Enough

More Meli Imako goodness: the full perm blazer and t-shirt.  I changed the texture to make the tshirt transparent so it’s just a blazer.  Unfortunately because of alpha clashing bugs it gives me trouble with hair or sheer tops that overlap the invisible tshirt.

Remember where we parked

Photos were taken at Virtual Decay (the same location as my last walking-in-high-waisted-denim-shorts post coincidentally).

You’ll Look So Pretty In A Dress

If you’ve read this post and wondered what I meant by hedging my looks this is it.

Photos taken at the park in Cupcake.

This is much more me, courtesy of some of my favourite things.  The jacket’s from Cipher and has been a favourite for years.  I love the design but it’s made from a pile of sculpts and I’d love a nice mesh version.  I don’t think she’s active any more but I can dream.

These stockings are also a few years old from Apple May but I love the texture

The dress is relatively new from Mon Tissu and is gorgeous but it flares out in a weird way when you sit down.  So try not to sit sit unless you want to flash your alpha layer and people.

Not looking at the camera: it’s kind of my thing.

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

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 don’t know how I lived before multiple makeup layers.

Off to find my next adventure.

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.

For shoes I went for some of my oldest and favouritest boots from Bax:

Renovations

We’re just moving in to a new skybox so I’ve been busy renovating and decorating, which inspired this weekend’s look:

The painting animation is a bit less stiff looking when it’s moving.

The painting supplies are from RC Cluster, including the paint on the wall.  You can change the colour with a menu.

I know the photography’s getting a little sloppy but hey I had a house to paint 😛

I know a lot of people find the sheer top and bra look trashy and that’s fair enough but I think it can look good, add some sexy or cute or even casual to an outfit.

There’s no look that can’t be improved with a little bow.  This bra’s actually sheer but I’m wearing it on multiple layers to make it decent.

I might have forgotten to take off my eye shadow

I was going to talk about how I have to wear the headphones like this because they’re no mod and too small to fit on my head but it looks like the store’s closed so I guess it doesn’t matter now.

Mesh is So Mainstream

So I’m all alternative (read: poor) and wearing no mesh again today:

also, I can't breathe in this

I wear all this makeup so you know I don’t care what you think

I have a bit of a thing for corsets and this one from KaS is probably my favourite, despite the fact that I find it impossible to fit.   It’s got a simple design with great little details (like all the padlocks) and is scripted to change tightness, recolour and stop you from bending in it.  I’m just kind of standing there in these shots because I couldn’t find a sit pose that looked natural in it.

this is me standing respectfully in front of the cross

My whole idea for this outfit had been to pair the corset with a mesh maxi skirt from Jane for a more goth, less punk type look but the skirt cut in to the corset so it didn’t work.   So I ended up going the other way entirely.

I love this mini skirt from Blow-Up.  It’s tiny, like coordinate-your-undies-with-your-outfit tiny but the quality and the details are awesome.  Plus I think it’s cute.

this blue eyeshadow's a bit much, even for me

tell me more!

Bite Me

Today’s look was inspired by this mesh top from Apple May:

look at me with my traditional standing-in-front-of-a-wall photo style lately

Now my boobs are staring at YOU.  How does it feel?

The top was  from the Mesh Around hunt.  I’ve been pretty slow getting on the mesh bandwagon, mostly because I’m stubborn about always having to change my shape to fit the clothes.  Also I love to layer and it’s hard to chuck a jacket or vest or something over a mesh top.

This top keeps clipping around my shoulders. I’m not sure what I’d have to adjust to fix that though.

I’m starting to feel pretty unfashionable though turning up somewhere in my old-fashioned clothes layers and seeing everyone else meshed up from head to toe.

why did this one come out with such rough edges?

…but I’m not going to let that stop me enjoying my winter fashions.  Or at least autumn fashions.

photos taken at Mayfair. This one’s just across the road from where I took these shots.

(dramatic eye roll)

The next pic was supposed to show off my awesome boots from Celoe but I got a bit sidetracked with the Depth of Field setting:

the view from here’s nice though
