Twisted Color Challenge: Crucible’s Pom

Here is the lovely color twist combination for this week:

I’m gonna say it, it made me feel a little Halloweeny when I first saw it, but a walk through Fashion For Life 2013 soon helped me get away from the ghost and goblin ideas.

Almost everything I am wearing today is from Fashion For Life. As usual, it’s an event that everyone should attend, even if you are not into fashion. So far my favorite build has been the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, and if you haven’t done so make sure you take a minute to go all the way up to the top of the build to see the hidden garden. Beautiful.

A Winter Home

A friend recently asked me to landscape his sim for winter. I’m afraid I went a bit crazy, but it has been so much fun to do. One of my favorite things was this little area where I set up one of my houses.

I know, those windows are totally inappropriate for wintertime, and a house really does need a door, especially in winter. I claim SL immunity to those things however, because I have always loved Cross Jupiter’s beautiful little cottage.

Until next time!

52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Tangelo

I love this color. Can you really be sad when you are wearing this color? It’s like trying to stay angry while eating pie. Can’t be done. This one was a real pick-me-up!

52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Juniper

When I was ten years old my mother gave me a copy of The Juniper Tree and Other Tales from Grimm. Edited by Lore Segal and with illustrations from the wondrous Maurice Sendak, they kept me fascinated for years. These are the original fairy tales with all the creepy, morbid bits intact. And the Juniper Tree is one of the  best…about a stepmother who kills her young stepson and cooks him down and feeds him to his father for dinner. For the whole story you can visit this site.

Congrats to Nicandra Laval who wins the LAQ Saga skin. And to Rudhmellowen Laguna who will win a pair of the Katatonic espadrilles!

Chills

The other day we had a snowstorm blow through, and while all the snow melted quickly, it was a cold, bitter thing while it lasted. After school I arrived at my car completely covered in snow  and had to do a dance in the middle of the street to shake it all off before I could get in. No doubt it was much appreciated entertainment for the passers-by.

Fortunately my lovely coat and scarf today from Shine escaped the abominable-snowman look. And Maxi Gossamer’s gorgeous Beatrice earrings are the perfect accessory.

If you haven’t got a pair or six of Ikon Innovia’s new Eternal line of eyes then you are definitely missing out. Eternal eyes have a larger wreath around the pupil, giving more variation to the iris coloring, and heightening the reflective contrast of the upper half of the eye.  From a distance:

The Last Gasp

We have had a big nor’easter these last few days and it has been sad but beautiful to see the leaves flying everywhere. It also snowed and gave us our first taste of winter. So I am taking these last few moments of gorgeous fall and cementing them in my memory.

One of my favorite things in SL this fall has been playing around with Nalena Fairey’s gorgeous landscaping grasses and trees. Her products combine realistic textures with impressionistic dreaminess. I can’t get enough.
