Midwinter

In the bleak midwinter, frosty wind made moan,
Earth stood hard as iron, water like a stone;
Snow had fallen, snow on snow, snow on snow,
In the bleak midwinter, long ago.

In the Bleak Midwinter, Christina Rossetti

Flux Sur Mer

Flux Sur Mer is a beautiful new sim with several differently styled areas—it was the perfect backdrop for my photos today. As you can see, I am still experimenting with my new mesh heads and learning the ins and outs. I do like that there is a minimum of correction that needs to happen on a mesh head photo…I guess I can add that to my pros column! My luminous skin applier today is a new release from Ele Brandi of Modish.

Winter Day

As the winter season has progressed, I have come to the realization that fall and winter are really my favorite times of the year. Not that spring and summer are bad, but fall and winter really let you see the bare bones of the earth, and I find them mesmerizingly beautiful. I also feel a sort of kinship with plants and trees that wither for a time, but then find life and creation again after a season.

I’ve enjoyed attempting to recreate this particular kind of beauty in SL. My beautiful friend Kidman, who is herself a talented fashion photographer, came to help me out with this wonderful pose from Luna Jubilee.

Reunion

The Walking Dead returned last week and with it my love of 9pm on Sundays, even if I do have to cover my eyes through about 50% of the show each week. I always like to pick a scene from each episode to try to approximate, and this one was one of my favorites. The only difficulty was how to get all the guns and things on them and have them still be able to hug. You can find all my past Walking Dead tribute photos here.

La Peregrina/The Death Meme

Strawberry Singh brought out a nice morbid theme for her Monday meme this week, so here we go…death.

092514b

 

  1. Do you ever think about dying? How do you expect you’ll die? – I think about it a lot. Life is just one small death after another, after all. Death of people, death of relationships, death of expectation, death of opportunity, death of love. While I hope to die in my sleep some night, I expect that my body will in reality die of kidney failure.
  2. Do you believe in an afterlife? If so, how do you visualize it? I do. I don’t know what it will be like there, but the odds are it will be better than here.
  3. What is your preferred form of apocalypse and why? – I think the most painless would be for the sun to go red giant. That will keep things quick.
  4. How many times have you cheated death so far? – I think maybe death has cheated me.
  5. Which fictional villain would you be okay being killed by? – If I have a choice, I would like it to be La Peregrina from Alejandro Casona’s La dama del alba. It ain’t easy being death, but she is compassionate about it.
  6. If you’re murdered, do you stay and haunt the culprits forever or do you give up that opportunity to leave and go to heaven/hell/Cancun? – Somehow I think that after I am dead I am not going to care too much about what the living are doing. So I’ll go somewhere. Sometime.
  7. Will you have done everything you have wanted by the time you die? – Most assuredly not.

    My apologies about the late response. I’ve had a crazy 2014 and now I’m trying to read all the memes I missed throughout the year before it ends. Now you have me worried that the sun will go all red giant and kill us all lol! Thank you so much for participating and I hope you have a wonderful new year! <3

Pause

You would think with as long as it took me to get into Collabor88 I might have blogged a bit more of what I found when I actually got there. Fortunately the 8th-of-the-month traffic (let’s face it…the whole first week of Collabor88 is like L.A. at rush hour) has died down, and I can showcase some of the wonderful designs available this month…and my readers might actually be able to get there to find them.

I chose a (sort-of) men’s style from Tableau Vivant today because I love the smooth textures and needed something that would show off the stunning headdress from Glam Affair. Did I say stunning? I meant S.T.U.N.N.I.N.G.

Maxi Gossamer continues to provide consistently high-quality jewelry…this month Maxi branched out into jewelry that is a bit more formal in style. I look forward to seeing what else she creates in this vein.

Physique

062514c

Siddean Munro’s new mesh body Physique changes all sorts of things. No more pointy calves, no more tearing of the avatar joints, and no more funky gap between the body and the upper arm. As always, Izzie Button is right on top of Slink releases with appliers for the mesh body. I have been surprised and pleased to find that I can wear some mesh clothes with the body with no issue. This will be something that will have to be tweaked as time goes on, but I am glad to know not ALL of my mesh clothes are now defunct.

My outfit today is from Teefyat Summerfest. Also at Summerfest is the sweet Hedgehog pal.
