Once upon a time there was a noob named Lola. She loved exploring sims and finding EGL stores to stalk. She would save her money and buy lovely dresses at each of the stores. Eventually she was buying more and more items at this little store called +Blue Blood+ and found the most precious gift ever a really great friend.
I have always loved shopping at +Blue Blood+. My first encounter in her store I saw some outfits named after the characters in Dune. I knew from that moment she would become one of my favorite creators. I am blessed to now call her one of my friends. Although I don’t see her much on SL *shakes fist at time zones* I am always excited to see what she makes.
Last week she dropped the new Chesh Outfits on me, there are several colors to choose from but I stuck with Blue and Purple. The outfit comes complete with a pair of boots and its all in mesh, there is also a system layer bra so there is no oops you saw my booby moments. All of Ghanima’s creations are hand painted meticulously and I love the extra detail she puts in her creations. Try the demo before purchasing, but she does offer the items in Standard SL Mesh Sizing.
So up first is a pic of me being cheesy and showcasing my awesome new skin by [AMITOMO]. I loved how beautiful the skin is and it gave me a youthful look that fit my kawaii style I was going for. I added a couple makeup layers by Rozena and eyelashes by Schadenfreude to add to youthful look. Continue reading →
Since the Event, there are these little pockets of space around the world where the old laws of gravity don’t exactly apply anymore. No-one’s sure why. That is- there’s no-one left that could tell us why. Some just lift you from the ground. Some fling you into the sky. No-one’s quite sure where they go after they fly up. Maybe they land safely in another gravitationally-altered space, maybe they soar up into space and die, gasping for breath as they… well anyway. There are some areas that seem to… react. Their lift is almost emotional. Almost like in books- like pathetic fallacy without the rain.
When you find one, you take a deep breath in, and do your best to clear your mind. Also, maybe try not to freak out too much. Try not to think too hard about the fact that your feet have left the ground- that your body belongs now to something other than the physical forces you’re used to. The first few times you do it, there’s a kind of rush. Some people hunt them down for that. Some say that each site is different- that you get a different rush, every different site you find. I don’t know about all that, and that’s not what I go for. Maybe it’s corny, but when I drift, I can feel a sort of… one-ness. I like to believe that all the sites are connected. Strange energies all over the world. Yeah, I know, you half expect me to start talking about chakras and dangling triangular… crystals over people, I dunno. It is what it is.
Even gothic SugarGirls can strip down to bikinis and have some fun in the sun! I don’t always romp around in adorable swimwear, but when I do, you know it’s bound to be a great time with some amazing scenery. And let’s face it – you can never have enough freshly-picked flowers to put in your hair.
Naturally, after a nice dip in the water, one must go sunbathing! (Yes, even I do it once in a while! Though, to be fair, I did end up a nice shade of freshly boiled lobster.)
Anyway, the weather is here, wish you were gorgeous!
Okay so I don’t have a really clever title. I technically should be sleeping but really sleep is for the weak. So I figured I should start off my very first post with something I would typically run around in SL in. I do blog mostly gothic looks on my other blog but hey now I get to show off my kawaii-ness to everybody.
As many of you know, SummerFest starts this weekend. I happen to love summer and there are so many nice items that are going to be offered at this event. I happen to be wearing two items from the event, one of my own and this lovely pink skirt from Tee*Fy. The beach shack I am standing in is also going to be available at SummerFest from Fri.day Home. It comes in three different types/sizes in a pretty good range of summer colours.
Now, I realise I am not an official blogger for the event but let me just take this time to promote the heck out of it because the event is fantastic. Not only does the sim look absolutely great but the stores participating really pulled out all the stops for this event. There are a lot of amazing, unique, fun and creative items that are being offered at this event and it was really refreshing to see the focus on the summer theme of the event instead of just the fashion and decor aspects. Don’t get me wrong, there are tons of fashion and decor must haves but they all really bring spirit of hot summer days on the beach to the grid.
The event opens this coming weekend! Don’t miss it.
“Where are we going?” I whispered, the sounds of the mutated echoing vaguely around us.
“Shh! And keep your head down,” he hissed in response, his eyes narrowed into slits as one of the creatures made its way up to the wall immediately behind us. There was no way it hadn’t seen us. The landscape was too open – cover was hard to come by, and what you could find was crumbling, threatening to reveal you at any second with a single wrong move.
Hot summer days.
Days on the beach, days with friends. Days of screaming seagulls, sand between your toes, ice cream dripped on your favourite shirt, and surprise sun showers. Days for holding hands- but not for too long. For wearing wide-brimmed straw hats and great big sunglasses and feeling like a movie star. Running barefoot as quickly as you can down the road to the corner store for ice cream.
Summer nights are warm. The pavement still keeps some of its heat from the sunny day. The lights blink on and shimmer in the clear night air. The Ferris wheel glitters in primaries, and the thick smell of tiny doughnuts and cotton candy moves on the warm breeze. You’re not sure what’s being said, but you’re laughing. Exhausted and happy, and only somewhat regretting wearing high heels. Kissing and falling in love, if only for tonight. Spending your savings on little pieces of summer to take home with you. Kick your shoes off and fall asleep naked with your fan humming away on your nightstand. Rest, ready for the next day.
