Today, the Festival of Sin will open, are you ready?
What will your favorite sin be?
“We are living…in the age,
in which the pursuit of all values
money, success, fame, glamour
have either been discredited or destroyed.
money, success, fame, glamour,
for we are living in the age of the thing.
money, success, fame, glamour…”
What am I wearing?
The set is from Tableau Viviant, in Vanity. The skin is from Glam affair. The jewelry is from Dark Mouse. The hair is Sugarsmack. The Body suit is from Kyoot.. all these things can be found at the Festival of Sin. The boots, which are not at the festival are from SLink.
The Festival of Sin will be opening tomorrow and let me just say, what I’ve seen so far is absolutely amazing. This is the Festival to be see at. I’ve never seen so much creativity put into one event before. I love, love, love the build and all the creative energy that was put into this.
The creators showcasing at the Festival of Sin have gone above and beyond in their interpretations of what each sin means.. For instance this fabulous outfit by Solange is just the right amount of sexiness. I love the lace and texture work. This is something I will be wearing again.
The skin is the Vanity skin by one of my faves Glam Affair. There are three different types of make up for three tones and a bunch of lipsticks for you to play with. Bitches love options! This skin gives you many and it’s gorgeous.
Don’t let me forget the poses. Adorkable Peapod makes some of the grid’s best poses. What I am using here is this table called look at me with five or so different sexy poses. I loved playing with this while snapping pics of my avatar. I am also wearing a brand new Festival of Sin hair release by Amacci.
Save your lindens until tomorrow, and let the sin begin!
I am a very lucky blogger indeed. I managed to sneak in to preview the Festival of Sin which is starting on February 18th and going on until March 3rd. I can’t begin to tell you all of the exciting things I saw but wanted to instead to do a post to feature some of the AMAZING ITEMS!
Marleen Vaughan of Vaughans House of Curiosities made this Sloth room complete with air fresheners for the ceiling for those not so fresh day’s when you have dead bodies just laying around or you don’t feel like bathing. She also has this box thing here with a bucket of Vomit or Feces – I’m not sure so you don’t have to get up and leave your room. It has two poses and the Sloth room is amazingly put together and is one of my favorite items so far.
I am wearing panties that come from Cynful (Lust). Heels that are from Ingenue (Wrath), the necklace is from Carolines (Sloth), The hair is from Amacci. The beautiful skin is from Aura.. I love the slutty lipstick smudged mouth.. and the chains that come with the pose are from Captive Poses. Everything in the photos is a bit of the Festival except for the Hospital set from Fashionably Dead at this months Collabor88.
The Festival of Sin looks to be kick ass and I will have a bunch more posts about the event. I am super excited to get my sin on.
Ok well. just a quickie post to tell you that Lamb has some beautiful new hair.. that I squeed over upon seeing.. Sweet Pea and Oleander are brand new and I love love love this bi-color look. I’m wearing Butter Cake and I think I’m in love. Also the skin I’m wearing I got from Pink Fuel for only 99L Yesterday.. it’s a preview of the much awaited Alyx skin and it’s freaking perfect. Candy Hearts for Valentines Day.. go get yours now!
Tyr released a new group gift for her store Aura.. it’s called love notes, it’s a preview of an upcoming line and this tone which I love is called Paper. There are two group gifts – one in a lighter tone as shown and a darker town as well with an extra VIP lipstick. The group gifts for Aura are generous and yes there is a join fee but it’s well worth it.
I am also wearing a dress that I kinda wore as a sweater from Zenith. NEW Mesh hair from Wasabi Pills, boots from Mons and tights from Riddle that is at the Crush on you event. Oh, also see that ring? I’m getting hitched in SL to Spence yet again.. wish us luck lol!
This post has nothing to do with Valentines day actually, but I made you look, right? Anyhow.. the Back in Black fair just started yesterday and I must say that the items along with the message behind the event made me happy. As I’ve stated mental health is a subject that hits home for me and I love that there are awareness events like this in Second Life.
So what am I wearing? Well I am wearing the fiercest mother effing POWER Suit from Ladies Who Lunch. It is Mesh and you have to maneuver your shape around a bit but like all of the clothing from Faint Paulse this is a piece of rare and genuine art. I paired it with the Glam Affair skin that is at the Dressing Room right now, Linn in Valentine complimented this well along with a tattoo from Little Pricks and hair from Al Vulo.
Sometimes a plurk catches my eye and I think “What the fuck”.. There was such a plurk this week and no I’m not going to name names but it was something along lines of nudity and soft porn being skanky for the feeds and no one wants to see that shit.. well I do and who is to say what is dictated to the feeds, I mean unless you are the feed owner and you notify me.. but hopefully one can see what I mean.
The actual comment when something like “just as much as people have their right to be skanks in public for fake efame, other people have the right to comment on it.”
This came right after I posted my newest SLuicde girl blog the other day. Well I guess this bothered some people but in my opinion I think its a prudish and an outdated way of thinking. To me well done nudity and soft core porn can be beautiful. Now I don’t mean nasty hardcore in your face kinda stuff.. I think that is best left behind closed doors.
It’s our bodies and I hope if you are playing Second Life you are over 18 and have at least seen your nude body in the mirror.
The human body at any size can be beautiful.. I guess I just don’t understand why skin is taboo. As for efame? I could care less.. what is efame anyhow? I’m a grown 35 year old women who would not give a flying fuck about efame.. I just want to express myself. I just want to make photos that I find interesting and share them. I am still going to keep on doing what I’m doing though and there will still be people that don’t like it and I get that.
I’m of the belief if you don’t like something don’t look or get over yourself. I think the best nudity is when we see an image and paint in our minds the story behind it.. like why is she standing in that water or sitting in that chair.. who is she posing for.. why are they having sex on that counter.. etc. I think images can tell a store and even make you feel something evocative.
I think that we are all beautiful in our own ways.. nude in our birthday suits, clothed.. it doesn’t matter to me, but don’t insinuate that I or anyone of my friends is/am some kind of skank seeking out imaginary efame.
The beautiful skin that I am wearing is from Atomic for only 88L at Collabor88. The Hemingway writers retreat set is 288L from Cheeky Pea, mesh and worth it for Collabor88.
Good morning, everyone! February the 8th is a mark of a wonderful day.. the beginning of a brand new Collabor88. I don’t know about you but it makes me happy.
Above I am wearing the hair and the book wormish glasses from Clawtooth. The hair is super cute as well as the glasses. I am also wearing the Bronte Dress from Kyoot. You see the theme here is Classic Novels this month. My pose which is also available at Collabor88 is from Marukin. I am also wearing the Back to Black boots from Lassitude and Ennui which is opening soon!
Caged. Trapped. Alone. That is how I could describe how my depression makes me feel at times. I know though that I am not alone in these feelings and that there are other people like me who can say that they are going through the same feelings and emotions. Sometimes though it’s hard to see past that haze.
Back to Black is an Awareness event (not Charity) put on and paid for by Chic Management. You can read more about the event here. Personally I think it’s nice that an Awareness event like this exists. Last time when they did the Black and Blue Fair a few summers ago.. I was overwhelmed with knowing that there were people nearly in my same shoes going through what I was.. and I was so much less alone.
I am wearing preview items from the fair. The wonderfully dramatic dress is from Peqe. The hair is from Mina. The beautiful mesh boots are from Lassitude and Ennui. The pose with cage is from Miamai. If it’s possible the cage is even more stunning in world. The event opens on February 11th and closes on February 29th at 4slt.
I love the new MESH clothing from ColdLogic. The stuff for me is absolutely perfect. Love, love love it. In the above photo I should add my tights are from Izzie’s (You can get a mega pack of these with different styles for cheap) My boots are the wellington boots by Gos.. which are Mesh and absolutely gorgeous. My hair is from Exile.
Here we have the dress from ColdLogic. Mesh hair from Elikatira. Boots and shoes from Celoe and my tattoo here is from Little Pricks. All the poses that I’m using in this post are from Diesel Works.. it is the cube with texture change and over 20 poses, and it’s amazing.
For this outfit my pantsuit is from ColdLogic..in fact it was the first thing I picked up on my mad shopping spree. it fits so very well and the texturing on all ColdLogic items is amazing. Some of the most beautiful mesh items that I’ve seen at this store and I’ve bought quite a sample for myself. The hair here is from Elikatira and the choker you can find at Indrya’s Originals.
