The theme for this round of The Liaison Collaborative is Le Cinema,  and it is full of items in styles from Hollywood glamour to vintage reels and action poses. Mimikri’s glittery dress and satin jacket provide the perfect frame for Ama’s shiny white pearls. Incidentally, the Mimikri outfit is fit for Slink or Maitreya mesh bodies, but I was able to wear it with my Belleza body, which is what I had on at the time. I have a lot of different bodies and wear them all, but sometimes it’s not convenient to change. I have found that if you’re willing to take a risk it’s good to give stuff a try even if it isn’t optimized for whatever body you might be wearing. Sometimes it works out just as well.

The closest I’ve ever been to sailing is puttering around in an old aluminum fishing boat. It seems like it would be just like flying, though. I think Marisa Kira of Diva Hair had that in mind when she created the windblown Jennifer design for TLC. Back when I was new, Mimikri was one of my favorite stores. Mimikri Kit’s beautiful Nana sheer blouse and shorts are also perfect for a hot day on the water.

For now it seems as though
you are still summer
still the high familiar
endless summer
yet with a glint
of bronze in the chill mornings
and the late yellow petals
of the mullein fluttering
on the stalks that lean
over their broken
shadows across the cracked ground

-To the Light of September, W.S. Merwin

Peace. Not something I have much of at the moment, with two German and three Russian major choral works to be memorized and performed in the next two weeks. Today I made plans with a friend to head for the beach on Monday for a little memorizing break, and after seeing this lovely blanket tent I thought how nice it would be to just curl up on the beach and spend the night there. I bet the view in the morning would be a killer.


The majority of what is seen in this photo can be found at this round of Uber. A special shout out though to Mimikri for the gorgeous bikini (that I would never have the guts to wear in RL) and the beautiful, glowing Artemis skin from Aida Ewing at this month’s round of Collabor88.

52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Electric Indigo

Today is my one-year blog anniversary, and what better way to celebrate than with a great color challenge???  I was actually thinking this was going to be a hard week, but the problem turned out to be too much indigo rather than not enough!

For our first electric color, I decided to honor Ben Franklin, that canny jack-of-all-trades that brought us greater understanding of the properties of electrical forces. (I stole that line from my scientifically-minded friend Stewart) While perhaps his key did not glow, and he definitely did not have as sassy a kite as I have, he certainly paved the way for future electric fabulousness. For those of you who don’t know the key story, you can read about it here.


Now for a couple of fabulous new items. First of all, Arkesh Baral at Mayfly has released her first mesh eyes. I have to admit to some uncertainty about how a mesh eye would work, but they were a cinch, and even better, they are resizeable so if the iris is too big or small you can adjust. And yes, they do work with the GI eye autofocus hud. All good so far! Oh, and did I mention how beautiful they are?


And last but not least, Maxi Gossamer is jumping on the mesh bandwagon with her gorgeous jewelry designs. These earrings were perfect for this week’s color, although I have to admit I loved all the colors that were available:

EARINGS - mother of pearl - FATPACK

And since it’s my blog anniversary, I wanted to do a little something on the fun side…so I will be giving away a fat pack of Maxi’s earrings to three lucky commenters on this post. Here’s how it will work: next Friday, January 20th, I will randomly choose three names from the list of comments. Please feel free to comment, even if you are not a blogger! The only restriction is that the prize will be delivered in-world and you must have a Second Life avatar name!

So many of you leave the sweetest and most encouraging comments here and this is my way of saying thanks for your wonderful camraderie. Here’s to you and to many more blog posts, my friends!
