Mulloy 005

Hope your Monday is off to a great start.  I am just grateful that I didn’t wake up with another headache this morning and despite waking up with a worrisome dream I feel quite rested.  I also had an absolutely lovely weekend in both worlds so I feel very content.

Today I am featuring this dress, which is from a new brand called Mulloy.  It’s an elegant sexy dress made to fit several mesh bodies as well as the classic sizes. The brand conveys luxury and classy chic so ladies stay tuned for some more great things from this store.

I was a bit of shoe and purse shopaholic in both my real and second life at one time and not so long ago. Over the last 3 years that desire to have the latest style and purchasing over $200 purses has waned, even if buying quality shoes is still a must, only not as often. I never really bought purses here in second life only shoes and I mean lots of shoes, so much shoes that a closet like these new ones by Bazar would have been the ideal thing to have.  At one time early in my Second Life journey I did find a shoe closet that had rows and rows of shoes in a flat prim. It was one of my favorite things and I probably still have it somewhere tucked away in my inventory.

The closet is by Bazar and it’s at the Home & Garden Expo.  I am only showing some of the individual pieces as the space only allowed for four here.  Though the full set also comes in a rez box version so that all you have to do is rez the box and click to rez the scene of closets in perfect order. The other great thing is that there is a male and female version.  The ottoman is also by Bazar and has poses for female, male and couples.

Make sure you check out the rest of the fabulous items at the expo!

Curiouser & Curiouser

Little Bird 018

“I have a desire for you today”
You were a passing bird
and I don´t know why
I got used to you
everyday more
we both invented
the adventure of love
you filled my life
and then I saw you go…
~ beginning lyrics translated from song “Hoy Tengo Ganas De Ti

I’m a bit out of breath now.  You guessed it.  It’s this very tight corset I am wearing.

You can have a skinny waist too by going and grabbing your very own corset by MoDANNA at the anyBODY event that runs until June 30th.  I’m wearing the red version, though you can find the black corset with several different lining colors at the event.

The diamond shaped tattoo I am wearing is by Things and it is available at the Alice in Sexyland Event.  The word “curiouser & curiouser” inside the diamond shape is a line in the Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland book that now is considered one of the more famous verses from the story.   Aside from the diamond shape tattoo you will also find tattoos in the other suits from the deck of playing cards with each having its own phrase from Alice’s adventures.

Lastly, I am wearing another of the fabulous collars that (epia) made for the June round of the arcade.  I think the heart pendant with the gold chain that circles the collar gives it a fashionable and much softer sexier look.

I finally made it to the Fantasy Faire.  If you’re not familiar with this event, it is one of the biggest events for Relay for Life of Second Life, which is also a part of the Relay for Life fundraising of the American Cancer Society.  While I support this organization in real life in appreciation for their work and what it means to me personally, it is a fund raiser that I also like to support in some small way here in Second Life as well.

Even though I was able to get to the event I was not able to fully appreciate the design builds as I lagged pretty badly.  While I have better internet speed these days, there are certain places that I still struggle to walk in even if I get my rendering weight down to like 3000 and I derender everyone in sight.  Though from the pictures I’ve seen and whatever I was able to glimpse while I hopped around it looks pretty magical.

The event ends in the next couple of days so you need to visit now to take advantage of some of the great items made by some of the best fantasy designers.  Visit the website to find out what other events are happening within the event itself, because there is live music, book readings, auctions, a hunt and I even saw some areas for you to role play as well.   All that and more to support the American Cancer Society’s vision of a world without cancer.

The website also provides you with a preview of the items that have been discounted and proceeds go towards the fund raising goals.  This system works very well and I was able to just directly teleport to the area where the items I wanted to purchase were.

This hair pin/comb is a beautifully done piece that I made larger by stretching it out.  There is a crown version that is bigger except the comb is the item for Relay for Life and since I was able to modify this it worked out great.   The dress is also from the faire and is a gacha item and while I got lucky to get the rare one I was really vying for a common one in red.  I may just have to go back.

Have a great Friday!

Beam of Light

“The love of knowledge is a kind of madness.”  ~ C.S. Lewis

Yesterday I tinkered a little with Photoshop and it’s not a program I am eager to learn to use. Personally, I find it such a difficult program to understand even with all the hundreds of tutorials online that I can view.  It’s just not an activity I envision utilizing some of my free time doing. However, I can’t help being fascinated by some of the effects I see on pictures and wondering how it’s done.  

I might have mentioned in one of my past posts that I pretty much use PicMonkey to touch up photos.  It’s simple, easy and fast and truth be told I like instant gratification and on to the next thing.

Here are my results.  The cropped picture above was done strictly using PicMonkey and the two pictures below are the outcome of my lesson in inserting a beam of light into my photo using Photoshop.

The before.

The after.

I’m quite happy with the way it turned out that I just might play with it again. 🙂
