Rain

Sometimes a hurt is so deep, deep, deep
You think that you’re gonna drown
Sometimes all I can do is weep, weep, weep
With all this rain fallin’ down

Strange, how hard it rains now
Rows and rows of big dark clouds
When I’m holding on underneath this shroud
Rain

Transformation Challenge

I first met Danny about six months ago, doing what he does best, which is playing music that people love to listen to. (And by people I mean me. Probably some other folks, too.)  There is a story behind every song Danny shares, and usually an over-arching set of stories for any given set that he creates. Sometimes he talks a little about the artists or the songwriters—and during those times it is sometimes possible to catch in his voice the tremolo of the truly musically impassioned.  If you haven’t had the pleasure of hearing him play, do yourself a favor and listen to one of his sets.  You can catch him Tuesday nights at 7pm SLT at Someplace Else or at the Attic on Thursdays at 6pm SLT.

Danny’s pixel transformations have been many. They have also sometimes been hilarious. First there was his “normal” look:

Danny 1

…then there was his Elvis look:

Danny 2

…and my personal favorite, the Santa’s Little Helper look:

Danny 3

Anyway, in a very presumptuous move, I sent him a recent hairstyle and told him that 2009 needed to rest in peace. What has followed has been Danny’s external  transformation. Turns out he is quite skilled at putting himself together as he did for this shoot, choosing a classy blazer from Scars and comfortable jeans from Shai. Internally, why, Danny needs no transformation at all. I am lucky to call him my friend.

    That Elvis look is so epic though! LOL Thank you so much for introducing us to Danny.

These Boots Ain’t Made for Walking…in Snow

Lindsey Warwick’s lovely new Evoke boots will show your legs to the best advantage…but I think they would not be of optimal usefulness in a tromp through the snow. Better all around to have a seat, look at the snow, and admire your beautiful legs and feet.

Open Hands

Nobody wants to be the only one that’s left standing
Nobody wants to be the only one to understand
And now I’m seeing the way that you’re leaving without me

Now go on and drift away
The tide can hold you out
Go quiet now
Go sound, go safe
Open hands are hard to hold onto anyway

Brisk

The lovely, slow fall that we’ve been having is starting to grow some teeth, and sending rain and snow to remind us that this balmy harvest season is about to come to a close. Time to break out the jackets and scarves and boots. Today I have relied on Sissy Pessoa of Baiastice, Jada Tigerpaw of Geek, and Kenadee Cole of Reign to outfit me for the increasingly brisk weather.

Diamond Tears

Tears, idle tears, I know not what they mean,
Tears from the depth of some divine despair
Rise in the heart, and gather in the eyes,
In looking on the happy autumn-fields,
And thinking of the days that are no more.

-Tears, Idle Tears, Alfred Lord Tennyson

Maxi Gossamer’s delicate Diamond Tears necklace matches the ethereally fragile Flutter dress from Teefy at this month’s round of Collabor88.

I am also delighted to see different skin appliers being released for the Belleza mesh body. This one is called Patty from the talented Izzie Button.

Low Places

I’ve been wanting to use this great pose from Positure since Rhapsody opened but I have generally not done well with the seedy grunge-photo look. So today I tried my hand at it.

070214a

Helping me to complete my look are the Tear It Up mesh shirt and pants from Greymoon, along with wall hangings from Frogstar and Exposeur. The beautiful mesh guitar prop from Haste sits forgotten as our girl drowns her sorrows. Also to love are the Koffin chipped nails from Dark Passions.

Witchy Woman

My friend Justen gave me the idea for this post as he was wandering around Rhapsody. He was more than impressed by the Dark Dress from Pixicat. A wild woman needs hair to match and Olive. provided the perfect style with the Izzy II design. Adore and Abhore helped me add that extra bit of badness with the Catcall This! purse. I think the gentlemen might think twice before messing with this lady!

Roar

So many of the designers in the Pop region of Rhapsody did such amazing work that I can’t post enough to get to them all…so I am wearing as much as possible in this post!

063014a

This adorable pose is from Joli, and is in a pack containing several poses named after pop divas. The floral headband from Noodles complements the adorable halter and shorts from N2. And not to be out-done, Half-Deer’s Plastique shoes add a little something extra. I took my picture on the Rhapsody sim at the store for .Click, because it was just too cute to resist.

Also noteworthy from Half-Deer is the delicate Sweet Melody piercing. It might just be almost worth it to have holes poked in your face for these!

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.
