For Acha: Same Damn Thing

Acha has been an icon in our fashion world, and has done so with a warm heart and generous spirit.  She’s shared herself with us, without any boundaries between her physical and virtual self.  I will miss her unique and stunning sense of style, and her elegant writing, and just . . . seeing her around on the feeds. <3

For Acha: Same Damn Thing

Acha and I weren’t close friends, but she’s still played a major influence in my SLife.  Her blog has inspired me and introduced me to awesome new-to-me stores.  She encouraged me when I first started blogging.  She encouraged me when I first started creating.  She wrote copy for my store when I was first starting out, and her generous words inspired me to work harder and be better, to try and live up to her elegant descriptions.  By including me as a tiny part of her blog in various Not Me posts, she gave me a sense of being part of the greater community.  By featuring early Vanitas Vesture on her blog, she made me feel like I was “somebody” in my own small way.

So, in honor of Acha, here’s my response to the Same Damn Thing challenge.  (Acha’s original concept is here, and more info on the redux is here.) › Continue reading

Gypsy

I bought a new tarot deck last month, and have been trying to learn to read the cards.  It’s been an interesting process, working to learn the symbology of the imagery and internalize the fundamental message of each card.

Gypsy 1

I’ve always been fascinated by the visual imagery of tarot, and as I study the cards and their meanings, I get drawn into the visual possibilities — I want to design my own deck, and create tarot-based paintings and SL tableaux.  I want to make the creative process part of the learning process.

I’ve read through a couple books at this point, and have begun re-reading them, doing the learning exercises suggested this time around.  Today is exercise 1.1: What do I believe about Tarot? Am I “totally skeptical about using the tarot for anything but fun”, or am I “absolutely convinced that the tarot can give me specific, personal guidance?”

Gray

So, I’m going to jump on the bandwagon and take part in this week’s 52 Weeks of Color Challenge.

Gray

I’m such a sucker for a monochromatic palette.  Perhaps it’s the influence of the color theory class I took back in the day, but I love value scales; here we transition from white to black as we work our way down the outfit.

Gray

I opted for gold-tone jewelry with silver and black accents here.  While silver-tone would have been truer to the gray challenge, I like the warmth that the gold brings to the look.

I’m doing some much-needed inventory sorting today, and as I kept finding cute things, I thought I’d do Luna’s challenge.

Look of the Day: January 22nd

It’s been a long time since I did a look of the day.  Usually, my look of the day is whatever outfit I’m wearing for another blog post.  However, I’ve decided to start sharing my “running around the grid” looks, because, well, I like them.

I like to wear simple, comfortable looks when I’m hanging out in the skybox, or running around the grid.  I don’t accessorize much; I just like to throw together a few › Continue reading

Ceteris paribus

Apparently some people are terribly concerned that others are going to steal their “look.”  I think this is greedy, selfish, and stupid.  Anti-inspect shields don’t work, and we can track something down even if you won’t tell us where it’s from.  By trying to hide the source of an item, the creator may lose sales.

Most importantly, no one is going to steal your look (unless they’re one of the crazies, and in that case, you have bigger issues than your look.)  The same outfit can have a dramatically different feel, just by changing the details.  Observe.

Same outfit.  Same accessories.  A change of hair, a change of skin, and you instantly › Continue reading

Frankenfeet

So, first things first.  I strongly believe in protecting intellectual property rights.  I’ve chosen to participate in Step Up and Achariya’s project.

Now, on to the blog post at hand.  I was planning this outfit for Halloween, but computer problems prevented me from doing so.  Fortunately, every day is Halloween in SL, where we don’t need an excuse to dress up in a costume.

This look started with the frankenfeet Siddean Munro of SLink sent to me.  They’re absolutely hilarious, and the best part is that I don’t have to worry about matching the feet to my skin!  I wasn’t sure what to do with them, until I remembered the Victorian Lace Nightgown from Studio Sidhe I’d seen on Plurk a while back.  I shortened the skirt a bit to show off the feet, and it’s perfect, don’t you think?  The detail on the bodice is really lovely, and the prim buttons are a nice touch.
