Boho Culture Fair: Like a Daydream

With all of the chaos in my life over the last year 1/2, I have drifted away from my musical roots. Perhaps if I’d clung to them a little more tightly, the turmoil would have been less damaging. But… I digress. A friend and fellow blogger, Billy, has helped me rediscover my passion for music and naturally it is flowing over into my little creative space here.

When choosing the song to compliment this outfit, I couldn’t help but go for a more 60′s vibe with a modern twist. Kind of like the outfit itself. Mirror Enigma did a lovely job on the dress and boots, creating lovely textures and shading that compliment the mesh modeling perfectly. The Step-Inside skin is just sweet. I fell in love with it instantly and with a touch of S U G A R’s blush, it gave me the apple cheeked, glowing look I was going for.  The skin and the outfit are both available at the Boho Culture Fair going on right now. The adorable dog tags from Maxi Gossamer are available at the CINEMA event, also happening as we speak!

Now, for the music…

Like a Daydream ~ Ride

The way your hair hangs down it hides away your face,
For you it’s perfect, but it seems like such a waste.
And when I see you sliding past I make my plans,
And then my plans slip through my fingers just like sand.

I wish that life could be just like a photograph,
One moment captured as you laugh your perfect laugh.
But that’s a daydream, things could never be so right,
There’s so much more to think about than black and white.

Sit back, have a listen to some shoegazer tunes and dream with me a while, won’t you?

CINEMA: Mr. Senator’s Transgression and Repentance

Today’s post is focused purely on two awesome poses I discovered at Cinema 2012. Being a movie buff myself, as I was taking the photos and discussing them with one of my friends, the story of “Mr. Senator” was born.

This hot pose by Bounce This called Yield, featured at Cinema 2012. I wanted to do something a little different from the other photos I’ve seen with this pose, so I went for a contrast of innocence and corruption. I asked Jake to take on the role of “Mr. Senator”  and I was channeling the young intern “Ali” being called out of her house for an emergency “meeting.”  Seems like she’ll be tied up for a while. ‘Eh, see what I did there?

In this next frame, it seems that the Senator’s transgressions have been discovered and his perfectly coiffed trophy wife, “Brenda” looks more than a little unimpressed with his apology. Perhaps she should go Lorena Bobbit on his butt? The pose is by the fantabulous Adorkable Peapod and is called Surrender.

Hmm it looks like Mrs. Senator might have a little surprise in store for her philandering husband. Tsk, tsk, tsk. Adorkable-JH-Laph-Kal-Rau2

Both of these poses are available right now at Cinema 2012. Create your own drama!

Manic Creativity

This has just been one of those weeks. Go, go, go! Nonstop. However I wanted to show you this super cute new outfit from S U G A R being offered at XY Room! And yes, ladies the boots ARE included. I wore this out to a party the other night and everyone droooooled over the boots. You can’t see it really well in this photo, but if you click through you can see the pretty design on the boot. Yes, I should have taken a photo of the boots separately but as I’ve said.. this week was CRAZY in RL. Forgive?

You can tell how cluttered my brain is lately by looking at the photo below!

I also wanted to show you another skin from Curves Shapes and Skins. I really, really love the way these skins photograph. You can also get a better look at Maxi’s super cool Raven Skull necklace. I swear that girl has creativity coming out of her pores! I’m always so excited to see what she comes up with next.

Schooling Bessie with Anymore, XY Room and Back of the Closet Mash (BOCM)

I guess I’m kind of in “Back to School” mode lately. I can’t help myself. When I was a kid I always LOVED getting ready for the school year to start. I didn’t love starting school, mind you, just the preparations leading up to it. The school clothes shopping, new shoes and, my personal and very private obsession, new school supplies! Come on, you know you’re with me!

Anywhoooo, I thought this cute little jumper from Anymore was the perfect first day of school outfit. I paired it with pieces (shirt, shoes, legwarmers, glasses and tights) from an older outfit I had in the back of my closet  (would this constitute a BOCM? Maybe?) I love the texturing and shading on all of these items and I thought they complimented each other very well.

When looking for a perfect school setting, I had to do some extensive research. I mean, do you know how many school settings in SL are XXX? It’s seriously unbelievable! A lot of reform schools in SL. Apparently. *coughs*

I finally found this beautiful sim called the Principality of Picklefish that had a tiny little schoolhouse, complete with a little mascot. Meet Bessie, isn’t she darling?

Bessie and I became fast friends and she even posed for a shot with me. What a little cutie-patootie, huh? However, she did try and eat my smiley face button.  We had words, she apologized and we’re totally BFF’s now.
