In My Solitude You Haunt Me

Hi everyone! Hope you have all enjoyed your weekend so far. I’ve got a few pretties for you from The Boutique and some soulful tunage from the late great Ella Fitzgerald. Enjoy!

In my solitude you haunt me
With reveries of days gone by
In my solitude you taunt me
With memories that never die
I sit in my chair
Filled with despair
Nobody could be so sad
With gloom ev’rywhere
I sit and I stare
I know that I’ll soon go mad
In my solitude
I’m praying
Dear Lord above
Send back my love
I sit in my chair
I’m filled with despair
There’s no one could be so sad
With gloom ev’rywhere
I sit and I stare
I know that I’ll soon go mad
In my solitude
I’m praying
Dear Lord above
Send back my love

How Soon is Now? Skin Fair Snow Rabbit Preview

That’s kind of the question I’ve been asking for months. Ever since I saw the WIP (work in progress) video of the Snow Rabbit mesh hybrid avatar. I’m going to try to explain it, but you really have to pop in to Skin Fair this weekend and see to believe!

Skin Fair Snow Rabbit JHC_001

Basically Nea is a beautiful mesh head that has an “animated” face. She smiles, blinks, closes her eyes and all without you having to click buttons to make her do so. Personally, I find the concept extremely amazing and with this first step, I think we are moving ever closer to truly realistic interactive avatars in Second Life. I’m looking forward to see what Snow Rabbit creator Shirousagi Noel does next to improve upon this idea.

Skin Fair Snow Rabbit Expressions

I’ve read and heard some things that I agree could be improved upon this idea: more subtle shading under the chin, better blending into the base skin at the neck, and the ability to change facial shadowing, nose shapes and lips to create a more unique look come to mind. But all in all, I think this is a solid first effort and I am extremely excited for the future of these avatars!

Happy shopping and take care of each other.

The Simple Things

Sometimes it’s nice to walk around SL and experience the simple things in life. My friend Kae’s sim It Starts With a Smile allows you to do just that. Kae (and I’m guessing that craxy Maxxster had something to do with it too) put an incredible amount of thought into each and every detail and the position of each adorable prop. It is now one of my favorite places in SL. Thank you for creating it!

Simple Things 1

The lovely fountain! I thought this was the perfect location to show off my new goodies from Collabor88! This outfit from Nylon Outfitters is absolutely adorable.

Simple Things 4

One scoop or three??? THREE! – The Fluidity poses by !Bang are still available at Zodiac, but only for a few more days! So hurry up and hit the !Bang kiosk while you can!

Simple Things 2
The centerpiece and inspiration for this entire outfit was the GORGEOUS new skin from AUXillary out now at Collabor88. It comes with 2 skins, one with light brows and one with dark. I am absolutely in love with it. The picture above is completely unedited so you can see how it would actually appear inworld! Stunning!

Take care of each other and Happy Shopping!

Slightly Off Balance

I’ve been slightly off balance lately with a lot going on in my real life but I think things will be evening out soon. Looks like I’m a little off balance in my Second Life too, huh?

I have fallen in love with the newest outfit from J.H. Couture. Sorry if you are sick of me gushing over Jada’s work, but she is one of my favorites and there hasn’t been an outfit of hers in forever that I haven’t just adored.  My necklace is from Maxi Gossamer. I’m not sure if you know this or not, but Maxi is selling some of her designs in RL as well! Check out the post on her website!

You Can’t Keep Me Down – I Got This!

So for the past 3 weeks or so I have been having the most HORRIBLE time trying to get a decent photograph in SL. I don’t know what happened but all of a sudden, windlights were borked (i.e. my skies looked like checkerboards), shadows were completely messed up and nothing was turning out right. So, I apologize for taking so long in between posts but I didn’t want to present any cool stuff if it looked like crap. Forgive?

I Got This | Second Life Fashion Blog

Today I’ve got quite a few cute things to show ya. First I want to make sure I mention the adorable sleeveless headphone t-shirt I’m wearing. It’s from Attic and is available for fi.friday tomorrow! They’ve got a bunch of different designs but this was my favorite because… you know… PINK! The headphones were a gift on Second Life Marketplace from Apogee Audio. Not bad for free huh? The gorgeously detailed Tiger Lily ring is from Maxi Gossamer for this round of Limited Bizarre starting on January 11th.

 I Got This Closeup | Second Life Fashion Blog

Now for a closer look. My oh-so-pretty skin today is the eagerly anticipated Ginerva release from Izzie’s. I know I go on and on about Izzie’s skins, but honestly there isn’t one that I don’t just love! I especially like the lips on this one, which I accentuated with raspberry lipstick.

Deets for the rest of my outift below. Enjoy!
