Add My Name To The List

17 03 2010

I’m taking a short break from the Clothing Fair posts to share the news with all of you.  It’s official:  I have been + blacklisted +. 

We all knew it would happen eventually. 

I’ve been watching Gauge Lavilles’ store since it first opened, waiting ever so patiently for him to design the one shirt that called my name. Or in this case, maybe screamed is a better term.  And when I saw this particular shirt released this week, I knew it was the one that would get me + blacklisted +.

Combat Baby

23 02 2010

I know I know the combat shorts from League were all over the feeds this weekend.  Normally, I try not to blog something if it’s sort of covering the feeds or, at the very least, I wait a week or two. Not this time though.  I’m not waiting a week to post about them because these shorts are just that damn fantastic.

Valentine Arcadia

14 02 2010

I’ve had a lot of fun putting together some different looks for this Valentine’s Day, and I have one more left that I want to talk about.  Because today is my rl birthday, I thought I’d put together a look that is more me than anything else I’ve done recently.  It is essential Arcadia, a look that is sexy and alluring, but not too revealing.  It is a look that is a bit dark, a bit enigmatic, and also a look of contrasts.  That pretty much sums me up, I think.  Putting this look together was so much fun for me, and the look started with a dress from Gothicatz.

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.

Donations & Dressing in the Holiday Spirit

12 12 2009

It was around this time last week that my friend and terrific DJ, Maht Wuyts, was in the middle of his 26.2-hour mahrathon set to raise money for Heifer International’s Eastern Uganda Umbrella Project.  It was an extraordinary event and quite possibly the longest dj set in SL history (that we know of anyway).  Maht was hoping to raise 100,000L during the event and I’m happy to say that we surpassed that goal by about 36,000L.  As promised, he’s given me the donation screen shots to share with all of you.  

I was awake for a good portion of the overnight hours,  and then again during Saturday afternoon handing out items and generally making sure Maht survived the process.  And despite the crazy hours, I have to say it was a really fun event.  I’m so thankful to have been a part of it and thankful to all of those who donated, no matter the amount.  Raising that much money in SL is not an easy task, and it took the generosity of a lot of people to make it happen.  Maht was able to get some RL donations as well, which he added to the money he raised in world for a grand total of $600 USD.

Maht does plan to do this event again next year, but in the meantime you can catch him every Sunday at the Velvet from 3 -5 p.m. SLT.  Thanks again to all of you who attended, donated money, and to the designers who gave us items to hand out. 

Speaking of those designers, one of the people generous enough to give me items specifically was Sanura Snowpaw of Dreams.   She has a ton of great stuff in her store; everything from clothing to collars, shapes to skins.  I was feeling very xmas-y today and on a whim put on my most recent purchase from her store.  It ended up inspiring a whole outfit, which I thought I’d share – a little holiday spirit neko style.

Urban Comfort

1 12 2009

This Friday, December 4th, my friend and DJ extraordinaire Maht Wutys will be spinning a 26-hour set for charity.  Yes, you read that right.  26 consecutive hours of music, and all of the tips he receives will be donated to Heifer International.  I’ve put the promo poster for the gig at the end of this post for those that might be interested in stopping by to hang out for a bit and support a good cause.  For those who donate, Maht will have a special box full of goodies donated by some of the fabulous designers we all know and love.  I will also have some special items to hand out to those who donate while I’m there trying to keep the DJ from falling asleep.  I’ll blog more about those things later this week.  But since I have the overnight shift (7 p.m. to 3 a.m. slt), I decided to put together something comfy to wear that night.

Crochet Goes Urban

18 08 2009

Crochet is not a word that appears often in my inventory, I must admit.  Not that I have anything against crocheted items; it’s just not a look I’m normally drawn to.  But when Shelly Toonie of Moonshine Designs posted a photo of her new crochet stockings on Plurk, I knew I had to have them.  Shelly was nice enough to send over a Bloggy Bag (and create a new term for review packs while she was at it), and as soon as I put them on I loved them even more.
