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.

The Arcade June 2014

I was fortunate enough to get onto the off-sim shopping boat quite early on this round, and I have to say I am a big fan of cam shopping. No avs to walk around, faster rezzing—I highly recommend it.

Diarmuid Miklos and Andred Qinan make some of my favorite items in SL and for this round of the Arcade they continue their tradition of creative excellence.

Also to love from this round is the banjo from Zigana, and the perfectly wild Boardwalk Breeze hair from Clawtooth.

    Oh no! You took off your mask…now you’ll turn into some post-apocalyptic mutant hungering for human flesh!

Splitting Hairs

It’s that time again, probably my favorite event of the whole year:

Hair Fair

Four sims created especially for hair addicts such as myself. Some favorites for me:

KIK (Hair Fair CLOUD)

I love how flexiprims are still being used for good!

CLAWTOOTH (Hair Fair Harbour) My next two for today are from Clawtooth—definitely one of my top five favorites this year at Hair Fair. Bubbles wins the market on cascading side-curls this year!

Twisted Color Challenge: Catch-up

It has been a crazy few weeks and I have fallen behind on my color challenge photos, so this morning  I had an extravaganza and got myself caught up.
