I Feel A Song Coming On

Have you even been wandering around and suddenly a song pops into your head? Or you look at some of your pictures and you relate a song title to it? Maybe you go exploring the vastness of all that is SL, and decide that you are going to take pictures that sum up a song title, or, invoke the memory of one? Your vision, your interpretation, your memory.

If you haven’t, why not give it a try? Here are a few of mine. Oh, and just for fun, why not see how many of them you know? I will number each picture, and you can find the details for each one at the bottom of the post.

Today’s Faves – Glitter!

I am having a fun time with new make up right now, and this is one of my faves. The lashes are from a set by Shiny Stuffs called Glitter Glam. It is a palette of seven Glitter Eyeshadows, ten Glitter Lipsticks, and seven Glitter Lashes,the bottom lashes are plain black. The multi coloured, blue, aqua and pink, lashes are my current faves. I love the multicolored look, and they were the perfect match for the new eyeshadow set from SlackGirl called Augusta. This set comes in eight different colourways, all of them are equally stunning. I have used another of Shiny Stuffs sets for the lips, I chose a bright pink from their Ethereal Romance collection.

You can see more in depth coverage of these collections on my Make Up post – All That Glitters and Jewel Colours here.

11th Rez Day Fun

11 years ago I was introduced to Second Life and I have been a resident there ever since. That is some staying power for ‘just a game’! We all know the draw of SL, and we all get gripped by the bug.

Avatars have changed so much over the years, everything is mesh now, with flexi this and that. Although I don’t even know if flexi is a term to use anymore? I can remember the rigid hairs, and clothes,  of the early days. If you bent over or sat down your skirt would stick out like a crinoline of yore. The hair was the same, if you wore long hair and looked down your hair stuck out at right angles! One of the many reasons I only ever wore short hair. I remember I chose to be a Goth/Vampire because I thought white skins looked so much better than the orange tone of the normal skins. Such was my logic back in the day.

Today’s Faves – The Perfect Dress and Boots

This dress is just superb in every way! I love the casual simplicity and elegance of it. It is by Just Because, and does not come with a HUD, so you have to pick your favourite colour and go with it. I love this neutral tone and deliberately chose it to go with one of the many colours that these amazing boots have on their textures HUD. I wear a TMP mesh body, so when I do find things to fit, be it footwear or clothing, I am doubly thrilled. Clothing is a little easier to adjust to fit, but there are precious few good quality thigh boots made for TMP. This pair by Hilly Haalan are just totally divine! They come with 30 different textures, so you are bound to find a colour to go with lots of differing outfits. The texture, the look, the fit… sheer perfection. They are now my all time fave pair of boots.

Today’s Faves – The Pirate Look

I read the latest notecard from Purple Moon and saw this great little outfit, it was very detailed and different, both things I love. So I went on a shopping hunt to find all the pieces to complete the look.

My first stop was at Swank, where I found the beautiful leather jacket and striped skirt. I chose the black jacket and red and black skirt. Then I headed off to The Chapter Four and quickly found the leather eye patch, which has a colour HUD for the leather and the metals. The gorgeous and very highly detailed fascinator/tricorn hat was from The Crossroads. There is a colour change HUD for this amazing creation, and the sails, hat, ship, and metals can all be changed. It is the perfect topping to the outfit.

I teamed the outfit with a great pair of shoes from Hilly Haalan. They have a colour change HUD and I thought the stripes and chains went perfectly with this outfit. The hair is a new design from Sintiklia and I opted for a red ombre shade.

The British Invasion

Last night there was a British Invasion at The Willows, the best club in Second Life. Faleen, the owner and host, had transported the club back in time to the roaring sixties in Carnaby Street, London, Britain. There was a cobbled road, red telephone kiosks, red post boxes, and even a blue police box. Steverino had thoughtfully parked a few of his cars in the street, but didn’t leave the keys in them. I was hoping he wouldn’t miss one of them, I had my eyes on this gorgeous one! I think it suits me, don’t you?

The music was matched to the venue perfectly, DJ Graylon kept everyone dancing with hits from the Beatles, Lulu, and Herman’s Hermits, to name just a few. Everyone dressed in theme and Faleen even had sixties dances to keep us in the groove.

Latex Night at The Willows

What a fun night it was at The Willows, the best club in Second Life. Faleen, the owner and host, changes the decor each night, with a change in music genre to match. Wednesday is the Biker Bar, with leather as the dress code, but tonight it was Best in Latex. I love any excuse to wear one of my latex outfits, and as we were in the Biker Bar I opted for something a little risque. I must have found the right mix because I won Best in Latex! Thank you Faleen!

The Willows was opened in 2012 by Faleen and her husband Steverino, and I found the club in 2013. Whether it is your first visit there, or your hundredth, you will always find a really warm welcome, not only from Faleen and Steverino, but also from everyone who visits there. It is like a huge big family get together, and the perfect place to celebrate any event. There have been many wedding proposals, birthdays, anniversaries, and rez days held at The Willows. Faleen goes out of her way to make those special moments something to remember, with cake, champagne, balloons and even a billboard! Faleen really does excel at what she does, and it is no wonder friends, old and new, keep coming back time after time.

Make Up Make Up Make Up

Oh how I love make up on my Catwa mesh head! I always loved make up, and matching it to my outfits, but now, on mesh heads, everything looks so much better.

Here is a little photo collage I made up of some gorgeous make ups.

Make up.jpg

Tuppi’s Look:

  • The top two and the bottom left pictures show a gorgeous Madrid Solo set of eyes and lips called Illusion One. There is a pallet of six eye shadows and six lipsticks. The shadows are beautiful iridescent colours, and the lipsticks are gentle pearl tones.
  • The last picture bottom right is a gorgeous eye shadow by Zibska called Iris, which comes in a pallet of 12 bright colours. The lipstick is by Just Magnetized called Crocus Lipstick, and comes in a pallet of  16 beautiful colours, ranging from darks to lights.

One Dress, Three Designers

Dress One, I first saw this awesome little dress at Hilly Haalan‘s store. I was perusing the shelves and my eyes hit upon a plain looking black dress. It was very simple and unassuming, but I instantly feel in love with it. It has a colour change HUD, with 20 colours, you can change the top, belt and skirt. The best part about it, is that it fits a TMP body, and was only $L99. There are so few items made for TMP bodies, my choice of mesh body, that when I do see something for TMP I am highly delighted and will be more inclined to test it out. I do understand how TMP has been selective with giving out their Dev Kits, but come on designers, they are freely available now, so please can you all grab them and get designing. Yes, I have thought, briefly, about getting another mesh body, one that has  more fashion options. I tested one, and yes, the alpha HUD was better, yes, the nails had a choice of lengths, and yes, it was Omega friendly, but I love that I have 10 hand positions, which are all really natural looking, so I really couldn’t bring myself to change. I have had my TMP body from their first inception, and I have suffered the lack of fashion choices ever since. Although, I do find some designers use sizes that work very well for me, and also Fitmesh is everyone’s friend! I don’t think any size is 100% perfect, well, not on my TMP body, but I have a huge selection of body shapes I have made over the years,  to accommodate various designers and their clothes. I have no idea if that is the norm for all mesh body wearers, I seem to be one of the few people that has only the one type of mesh body, and only the one mesh head!  Whether that will change after Project Bento is grid  wide remains to be seen.

Dress Two, was by R.icielli, 20 colours HUD for changing top, belt, and skirt colours. This dress was only $L79, and seemed to have a more leather type texture to it. It too was in a TMP size, so for that price I liked that I had more colours and textures to play with, and, I knew it would look great.

Dress Three, I found because I was looking for a costume to wear to a ‘Cops and Robbers’ theme night. This is a complete outfit, which included, hair with hat, dress, jacket, guns, holsters, hand cuffs, sunglasses, necklace, and boots. It too, was in a TMP size, although the boots were not, but by taking of my feet, I managed to get one of the sizes to work. There were no colour change options on this outfit, it came in Black, Blue or Pink, but it did include two versions of the hair with hat, blonde and black. Again, I recognised the dress style, and so I knew it would look great. This complete package cost $L350. I was really delighted with it, it all went together so well, and the attention to detail was great.

One DressT.jpg

So, one dress, and three designers, and there are probably a few more versions out there somewhere too! I love each one of them, the first two versions each have differing textures and colour HUDs, which gives oodles of choices!

Tuppi’s Look:

  • Dress One: Hilly Haalan, Liza; Hair-Exile, Loose Ends; Jewellery-RealEvil, Lux Sasha 
  • Dress Two: R.icielli, Jolene; Hair-[monso] My Hair, Yua; Jewellery-Earthstones, Crystal Rain 
  • Dress Three: [PPD], Im Your Cute Cop Blue
