Elin & The Fury

25 01 2010

In case you haven’t heard, LacieCakes has reopened with a brand new build.  The grand opening was this past weekend, and I was honored when Lacie Chambers asked me to do some special photos for the new sim.  There is a really great movie theatre in the new neighborhood and when she asked me to create a photo that looked like a scene from a movie, I was really intrigued.  I love doing fun artsy stuff and I decided to feature her Elin jewelry set in the shots.

Dream Ink

24 01 2010

I’m going against the norm today and not blogging any clothing.  I’m not blogging about jewelry, or shoes, or hair and I’m not blogging a new skin, either. Today, I’m blogging a tattoo.

A few weeks ago, my friend Aldwyn Zanzibar approached me about a project he was thinking of; a tattoo showcase of sorts where we can all show off the ink we wear in world.  That project never got off the ground, but I loved the photos I took for it so much I just had to blog them. 

Tattoos serve a myriad of functions.  They can be symbolic or just for fun.  They can be intricate or incredibly simple.  They can be works of art where skin is the canvas and you marvel at the brush strokes of the creator.  In RL, I have three tattoos.  In SL, my options are limitless and tattoos have become a third category of accessories in my inventory.  They can add flair or strength to the right outfit; they can add an edge of sexiness to a look.  I have a lot of tattoos in SL, but my favorite is a full body tattoo from Dream Ink Design.

Icy Diamonds

19 01 2010

While trying to come up with ideas for the January MDR Party, ice and snow where the only things that kept coming to mind.  So, not wanting to actually celebrate snow,  I decided to do a little play on words and have an “ice” party.  I’m not talking about that frozen water you find outside during the winter months.  No, I’m talking about diamonds.  After all, they are a girls’ best friend, right?  And when I think of diamonds in SL, the first name that comes to mind is Alienbear Gupte.

I’ve long been a fan of Alienbear’s fantastical designs and gorgeous sparkling diamonds. Her jewelry is ornate and beautiful, with rich jewel tones and crystal clear diamonds.  Alienbear Gupte makes high quality pieces, each as unique and creative as anything on the grid.  And while her jewelry can sometimes be a bit high prim, it’s totally worth it.  I always feel like a princess when I’m wearing something from Alienbear, and one of her newest sets, Azucena, definitely keeps that tradition going.

Blazing a Trail with COCO

5 01 2010

COCO is fast becoming one of my favorite stores.  The love affair started with the Slim Fit pants in silver, continued on through those same pants in every available color, and has now moved forward into every aisle of the store.  The designs of Cocoro Lemon are stylish and varied.  Seriously…I challenge you to go into that store and not find at least one thing that catches your eye.  From shoes and accessories, to separates and dresses; there is a little bit of everything at COCO. 

Recently, I snagged this fantastic black bomber jacket.  And when I say fantastic, I mean F-A-N-T-A-S-T-I-C!  It’s cropped just about the waist and the sculpted attachments add just the right flair.  I love the little details here, especially the tabs on the zippers.  The pushed up sleeves sort of give it an edge, and I decided to take it in the direction of biker chic.

A Quick LOTD

3 01 2010

My friend Maht’s weekly Sunday gigs at the Velvet are definitely one of my weekend highlights.  Good music and good company are never a bad way to spend an evening in any life.  They are also, however, an opportunity for me to put a look together.  I always try to wear something fun and new to his sets, though I do have a few favorites I fall back on from time to time.  For tonight’s set, I created a fun look built around the Three Goddesses Print Tank Top by Blowpop.

Arcadia’s Top Five Lingerie Sets of 2009 – #1

1 01 2010

Technically, I should have been showing you the best lingerie set of 2009 yesterday, but alas my schedule did not work out that way.  Instead, we’re going to spend the first day of the New Year looking back at my favorite lingerie set of 2009.  This is the set that is definitely the most ‘me’.  While I do have that girly, princess side I mentioned before, my dark side always comes first. This set is my darkness turned into lingerie.   My pick for the #1 lingerie set of 2009 is Belle by Blacklace.
