Panties for Luna

There has  been a bit of sad wandering around among the 52 Weeks of Color Challenge bloggers, wondering what to do now that the challenge has ended. During a conversation with my darling Rudhmellowen Laguna, we thought about doing a big thank you photo for Luna. Now, this year Luna seemed to be half-naked much of the time, and appeared to have a particular aversion to wearing pants. We all loved seeing her color interpretations through her partially bared pixels, and truly, no one rocks the pixel booty like our Luna! So in honor of her, a bunch of the color challenge bloggers got together and did a panty shoot for Luna. Now how many people do you know that can get this many girls to drop their drawers at once?

We love you Luna, thanks so much for two great years!

This many half-nekkid girls is bound to create some hilarity, and as you can see, it did.

Time Out

Mon Tissu Blogger Search Entry - Eliza Quixote

Today’s photo is about appreciating the small moments in life–enjoying a sunny break in the middle of a long workday, the company of a good friend, the fact that there’s work to be done and that you have the strength to do it. I chose a high-quality shirt and jeans from Mon Tissu to keep me from getting banged and scratched throughout the workday. My trusty pal Mabel keeps me company and discourages the sheep from running in front of the tractor, and expects only half my apple and a scratch on the head in return!

Summer’s End

It was sixty-five beautiful degrees this morning when I went in to school. It set the tone for a blissfully happy day. Lately I have been spending some time wandering around the beautiful Finlandia sim. This is rural farm beauty at it’s best and makes me wish I could visit in RL. It’s probably just cool enough for a sweater, like this great off-the-shoulder one from Useful Things.

It’s so fun to wear the new Kaleido eyes from Ikon Innovia—they look fairly normal from average distance, but it’s fun to see how much you have to zoom in to pick out the different shapes in the eyes.

52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Feldgrau

In front of the barracks,
In front of the main gate,
Stood a lamppost,
If it still stands out front,
So will we see each other there again,
By the lamppost we’ll stand,
As before, Lili Marleen.

Our two shadows
Looked like one.
That we were so much in love,
Anyone could see at a glance.
And everyone will see it,
When we stand by the lamppost,
As before, Lili Marleen.

Already called the guard,
“They’re blowing taps.
That could cost you three days!”
“Comrade, I’ll be right there.”
Then we said farewell,
How much would I have rather gone with you,
With you, Lili Marleen.

It knows your footsteps,
Your beautiful walk.
It burns every evening,
Although it forgot me long ago.
And if a mishap should befall me,
Who will stand by the lamppost,
With you, Lili Marleen?

Out of the silent space,
Out of the depths of the earth,
Lifts me as in a dream
Your loving mouth.
When the nocturnal mists swirl,
I will be standing by the lamppost,
As before, Lili Marleen.

Lili Marleen, German Love Song

Thanks to Stewart for the idea this week. Since our color got a bit military I made him dress up as a soldier. This song was a favorite of both German and Allied soldiers during World War II. At the bottom of this post I have pasted a video for anyone wanting to hear the real thing!

Congratulations to Caroline Endersleigh, who wins the Maitreya dress from last week. Send me an IM in-world to let me know which color you would like!

For next week, I will give away a gift card from Sn@tch. Ivey Deschanel is one of the great cornerstones of SL fashion and her recent mesh work is to die for. You know the drill!

    Love the idea! You’re a beautiful Lili Marlen:)

  2. Nicandra Laval

    War is terrible..as even can be felt in the sad song too. Mixed feelings seeing the german uniform too many innocent people died because of that terrible war,Eliza..but you look beautiful as Lili Marleen

  3. Alexandra

    This is fantastic ! You actually show the essence of feldgrau. Love your Lilli Marlene re-enactment unter die Lanterne.

  4. Softpaw Sommer

    Wow, your photos are so romantic.

  5. Sama Yalin

    Love the first picture: romantic and also a bit melancholic. There must have been many couples like that, where the young man never returned home.

  6. Rudhmellowen

    WOW, just wow!!! I love the romance and the history

Diggin’

We are having a heat wave that is making this area rival the western deserts where I grew up. Nothing against the western deserts but frying an egg on the hood of my car is not what I call optimal weather. It reminded me of digging up my parents extremely rocky garden bed when I was growing up and thinking I would die from it. So I would likely not be wearing this awesome mesh necklace from HANDverk in RL, but in SL I can dig in style, even if I am a little dirty.

I am enjoying Unique’s new line of ethnic skins and this one is called American woman. I always like Nany Merlin’s bone structure and no one does an SL nose better, in my opinion. With my tie-dye tank from Jane and my boots, gloves and shovel, I am ready to hit the garden.

Free Time

Now that classes have finished there is a bit more time for relaxing and keeping up a bit better with this blog. To celebrate this found time I dragged Stewart off for yet another photo shoot and this time made him wear mesh clothes and body parts. After a bit of consternation he sorted it out very quickly, and is something of a natural at matching skin tone for attached body parts. He’s a smart cookie. I also really wanted to wear the new mesh shorts from Mon Tissu, so it was time for some warm-weather wear!
Today I am using a couple of poses from Veridian Frog at Mood Swings that I thought were super cute. The first is called Can’t Break Her Fall, but Stewart appears to be doing a pretty good job of breaking mine. He tends to do that in many aspects of my SL.

Stewart’s mesh shorts are from Box. They have a great texture. I do confess that I look forward to the day when natural wide-body movements do not distort clothing textures, but if you are just looking for some board shorts to run around in, these are nicely done.

    You two are very cute. Love the shorts.

Pose Fair 2012: Horse Love

Captivity has a great mesh horse prop at the Pose Fair. When I first saw it I was reminded of a photo I took when my Uncle Tim took me and a group of cousins up into the high Uintahs on horseback. It remains to this day one of my favorite trips ever. So I pulled the photo out of the scrapbook and scanned it. This is Zach, he was always my horse when my uncle took us on these overnighters. He was a big part-Clydesdale, part Morgan and we got along well together.

Zach

I know, I know, I am the height of fashion here. Let’s just remember that I was sleeping on the ground and about a hundred miles from anywhere, so no judging, please! Smile

I have named my mesh horse Zach in my old friend’s honor.

042712a

There are five different poses that come with the horse and you can change the color of the coat and the mane. I tried to get him to look as much like my Zach as possible. And as for me, I did manage to find a similar, albeit more stylish sweatshirt and hat. I really like this casual hat style from Argrace. No Green Eggs and Ham, but we’ll just call that an improvement. My jeans are from PerleRare at Oh! and they are perfect for comfy horseback riding, being definitely more curvy-style than many other mesh jeans I have seen.

Giving Up

I saw this sentiment on Rezzie Luckstone’s offering at Wear Gray and it stayed with me the whole day. Many people assert that giving up is the weak, easy thing to do, but I disagree. Sometimes giving up is very, very difficult, sometimes impossible. Sometimes that heart just won’t let us do it. Many times that’s a good thing and difficulty is overcome. Sometimes a life is wasted in pursuit of the unattainable. But the urge to keep trying is a large part of our humanity. After all, how does the saying go?

Mind over matter.
