Guinevere

9 03 2010

Speaking of SL weddings…

While I don’t ever plan on having my own SL wedding, being a photographer does afford me the opportunity to attend a lot of them.  I’m always looking for something fantastic to wear to a wedding that won’t be too much, you know?  Not too primmy, not too scripty, etc.  The wedding guests create enough lag without me adding to it and making my job that much more difficult.  For this most recent wedding, I found the perfect gown –  Guinevere from Blacklace.

Valentine Seduction

8 02 2010

It wouldn’t be Valentine’s Day, and I certainly wouldn’t be me, if there weren’t a lingerie post in here somewhere.  Of course, there are tons of special Valentine’s sets out there and I have a few of them, but I wanted to focus on a more seductive style for my Valentine’s Day.  I wanted something a bit daring with a bit of an edge and Jade by Blacklace was a perfect fit.

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.

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.

**Guest Post – Glowing**

12 09 2009

**Rhodesy Durant, friend and fellow MDR Photographer, has done another guest blog post. This time, she’s talking about her newly purchased skin.  Of course, I had to try it on too!  But as is the case with so many, it didn’t really work for my avatar.  I think it’s gorgeous though, so I encouraged Rhodesy to share her find with all of you.  Enjoy!**

My second life began over 3 years ago, and in that time I blush to tell you the vast number of skins I have purchased. I’ve been wearing my current skin almost exclusively for over two years. I’ve blogged about it here before.

And while I’ve been very happy with my every day skin, I never could quite stop the search for others. I’ve spent thousands of lindens on skins I thought I liked, wore around my friends once, and then never donned again. I’ve tried hundreds of lindens worth of demos too. And then, this week, I donned a demo skin that was as good as my normal one but upgraded.  I still looked like myself. I just looked…more clearly defined. And then I took my clothes off, and it was all over but paying for the skin pack. My rear end and cleavage has never looked so well defined or realistic! This skin manages to lend curvy lines to an otherwise demurely small figure.

After walking around for 3 days wearing a demo skin and getting Arcadia’s opinion so many times she probably wanted to hurt me, I broke down and bought it. And Arcadia insisted I blog it for all of you to enjoy as well. LAQ’s new Glow Skins absolutely work for my avatar! Below, I’ve posted some tasteful pics so that you too can appreciate the attention to detail that was put into this skin. Specifically, I’ll draw your attention to the knuckles and kneecaps.

Hello, Lover

26 07 2009

While surfing the internet the a few weeks back, I happened to come across this picture and knew immediately that I HAD to have that pose in SL.  Knowing that Zelly Mornington of Striking Poses was an expert in re-creating sexy model poses, I sent her a notecard with the photo and inquired about a custom pose.  Zelly was very nice in all of my correspondence with her, and while she is not currently doing any custom work, she loved the pose so much she decided to go ahead and create it.  I was thrilled, of course, and even moreso when she told me a few days later that the pose had inspired an entire pose set she was calling “Hello Lover.”

Caged Bird

invite

Tonight at 6 p.m. slt, my art exhibit opens at the Rara Avis Gallery.  It’s called Et in Arcadia Ego and is a collection of some of my favorite self-portraits.  I’ve posted the Artist Statement at the end of this post so you can get a better feel for what the show is about.  The lovely ladies of Rara Avis, Azriel Ballyhoo and Neneveh Teskat, will be in attendance, and Nineveh is going to be our DJ for the event.  Even if you can’t make the party, do stop by the gallery.  The show will be up until the end of July.  And besides, a trip to Rara Avis is always in order. 
 
One of my most recent self-portraits combined wings and lingerie.  I found the best store for wings, and I thought I’d share those with you here.
