Adventures in Industrial Chic for Collabor88

frost copy

I have to admit, when I first found out the theme for November’s round of Collabor88 I couldn’t imagine what people might make. But as I experiment more and more with some of the pieces from this round, I dig it.

This dress and metal hair bow are from Katat0nik. I’m really happy that Katat0nik is still making amazing things. I can remember them from my much younger days in SL. I fell in love with this dress and bow as soon as I saw it.

These boots too – from Collabor88 guest this month Beetlebones. I used to have a pair of boots like this when I was a teen and I wore them until they fell apart pretty much. This necklace from Boom, which is so detailed and intricate has fast become one of my favorites as well.

I’m also very glad to see Lamb back at Collabor88 which is who made the hair that I am wearing in this post!

I shot these photos in Small Town Green. My poses are from Marukin and my skin is from Glam Affair (Vera – Horror edition) Have an amazing Sunday!

The Mens Dept. for November

abln2

The Men’s Dept. has a brand new round and I couldn’t resist using these poses from !bang that are discounted for the event. Everything Case is wearing is also from the Mens Dept.

The Tattoo, the Hair from Ink, the Boxer briefs from Flow and the Lamb skin from Essences (Dear Essences – please make Slink Appliers for the guy skins!!!!).

His eyes though you can’t really see them are from Dead Apples too. There is a ton of good stuff that you can get this round and this day bed is from the Eleventh Hour and would look great in anyone’s house.

Prelude to snow

winter1

“So I’ll clear the road, the gravel
And the thornbush in your path
That burns a scented oil
That I’ll drip into your bath
The water’s there to warm you
And the earth is warmer
When you laugh

Love is a scene I render
When you catch me wide awake
Love’s a dream you enter
Though I shake and shake and shake you
Love is the best endeavor
Waiting in the lion’s mane”

Lion’s Mane – Iron and Wine

winter2

There are times when, I just don’t want to talk.
There are times when, I just want to fill the empty spaces with music.

    Wearing:

New Glam Affair Tiara at Fameshed.
Glam Affair – Vera skin

Newer Deetailz dress for the Euphoria Sale (ending today – nothing is over 150L)
New hair from Lelutka
Old but still cool mesh boots from Gos

Bellah and LittleApples have a Playdate!

bellahapples1

So, I let my little avatar Bellah come out and play today with her friend Littleapples Lemon, because the Woodland Gacha Festival started a fabulous November round and I wanted to go and pic up a few things but I found quite a bit of cuteness!

These poses with the turkey’s from Promise Hope of (Sweet) are adorable and a steal at 25L a pop. So I played a few times and I just think they are adorable.

The little poncho sweaters that we are wearing are from Little Closet (you can also get these at the Woodland Gacha event). I paired mine with some leggings and a long sleeve shirt from her regular store, (but I will say that you kinda have to wear an undershirt of a similar color with them because as my ao moved I could see little flashes of skin sometimes, and I’m not a very experienced Toddleedoo dresser but that seemed to help as well as making certain parts of my body invisible – which seemed to help a lot).

The clothing at Little Closet is super cute though. My friend Apples has her poncho on too in these pics as well as her gacha rares from the Woodland Gacha (the feather band and the bag of arrows) We both got most of our outfits for these pics at Little Closet. My scarf, her scarf and shorts. etc.

It’s hard for me to find good hair on a little avatar but I did find some non-rigged styles at Wasabi Pills that I loved. Littleapples got her hair from Chemistry.

So there are definitely some places that are awesome. You basically just gotta look for the non-rigged kind that you can size and you are good to go. Shoes are another thing too. I got my boots out of Aura’s Gacha at Woodlands – They came with an outfit too which I will wear at a different time. Littleapples got her boots from Marmelade.

This pose above – My friend Littleapples Lemon made for Three Birds poses. I asked her when it’s coming out and she said soon.. so if you want it IM the crap out of her! Not even kindding! If I forgot to credit something just comment or IM me in world. I had a lot of fun today on my little av with Apples. Happy Saturday!

Elvi from Glam Affair

1elvi

Glam Affair is coming out with a younger looking skin line and the first of that Line is “Elvi” in Europa. I do not know when this will be released but I wanted to share a sneak peak!

This skin is super cute and youthful. I like the dramatic lipsticks on this skin and cute nose. I also really like wearing the add on mole/freckle layer. Super cute! To find out when this skin is coming to Glam Affair or any Glam Affair related updates I’d suggest joining the in world group for updates and the occasional group gift!

I’m also wearing the new Helen hair from Lelutka and eyes from Ikon.

Dutchie makes a Linen Room

Shade

If you look at the photo above, and really look deeply you will see a girl trapped in wanting, in waiting for her fantasy to come true. She was just a hired maid and while she thought her uniform was unusual – from the tied tight corset that pushed forth her creamy breasts to the heels that she wore and that little short skirt… well even in her innocence she knew that the Master of the house had plans for her.

hold

She let these fantasies fill her day dreams as she scrubbed and toiled away making sure each corner of every room was spic and span. She wanted just once to see his dark and sardonic nod turn into a genuine smile, and so each day she did her very best.

One day she was doing his washing and got a spot of bleach on her skirt and she knew full well the rules of the house. The house must always look its best and so should she. She removed her skirt and tried washing it but the spot would not come out.

She hung her skirt up to dry and she began to have certain thoughts… what if he caught her in just her panties and corset.. and she wondered just what would he do if he found her legs spread in offering as he walked in to do his daily checks. She wondered if he would take her as she longed for him to do or if he would punish her on the spot.. either way she had to find out.

taken

She had finished with her chores and got up on to the table and stretched out. Her fingers began to stir awake her senses as she began to touch her body. She wasn’t sure if she wanted to get caught or what would happen but this thought tugged at her and she became so wrapped in her dream world that she didn’t even hear him come in.

1dutchie

The rest of the story? Well you can draw your own conclusions. You should be more interested in making a story of your own. What more perfect props than these though to make your fantasies a reality.

In my opinion hands down Dutchie makes the best intimacy furniture you can buy in Second Life. I like that you can link and unlink pieces in this set. Many people are even using the counters and cabinets as a kitchen too. It’s even better looking in world.

Froukje Hoorenbeek of Dutchie gets more into the specifics of this new set on her blog as well as more photos. You can see those here: http://dutchiesotherlife.blogspot.com/2013/10/the-linen-room.html#more or better yet just go see it in world: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Dutchie%20furniture/148/84/22

Strawberry Singh’s Halloween Meme

witch

Hey! I decided to post a RL picture of me when I was a kid for this post, as it deals with RL questions about Halloween. I was a pretty cute little witch, I believe I was around 8 or 9 in the photo – I’m not really sure. I loved that birch tree though in my Grandparents front yard.

I think I was trying to make a scary face. I’m pretty sure I did my own make up too for that pic because I remember smearing the green paint on my face and then trying to make it look as nice as my mom could but that never happened! I vaguely remember this. (lolol) I was a goofy kid.

Meme Instructions: Share a picture of your Halloween Costume in Second Life and/or answer the following questions about Halloween. Don’t forget to share a link to your post in the comments and if you share a picture, feel free to add it to the Blog Memes Flickr Group.

Check here for the original post: http://strawberrysingh.com/2013/10/28/halloween-meme/


Did you go trick or treating as a child?
I did! I don’t remember the year that I started cause I’m old now but the last time I went was as a joke sometime in High School with a group of friends.

What was the best Halloween costume you ever saw or wore yourself? I think it was when my mom make me a pumpkin costume because that was one of my nicknames when I was little. It was filled with balloons and I loved it. I wish I had a photo of it.

What is your most vivid memory about Halloween? I think the most vivid memories are going from house to house.. knocking on doors, carving pumpkins. When I was older (like around 16) I remember blasting a tape that I had – Wish by the Cure when I passed out candy. It was deliciously creepy!

One year a bit before Halloween when I was about 19 or 20 a group of friends and I went to CVS and bought costumes and candy and dressed up and painted our faces and went and passed out candy to people in the snobby part of town. It was pretty fun.

What is the scariest movie you have ever seen?
When I was a kid.. the scariest movie to me was Pet Cemetery for some reason. I could handle almost any other movie but that one freaked me out pretty bad. I should try to watch it again now that I am older.

Do you ever get nightmares after watching a scary movie? No, not really.

Are you superstitious? If so, name at least one superstition of yours. I’m a little bit superstitious. I avoid sidewalk cracks and I would never do “bloody mary” in the mirror and sometimes I even throw salt over my shoulder if I spill it.

New Tableau Viviant Hair and Vera (Part 2) from Glam Affair at Horror Fest!

horror

Good evening! I wanted to do a blog update and show off the new hair styles from Tableau Viviant for the ladies. I encourage you to check out the blog for Tableau Viviant or the in world store which I linked to above. They have a lot of unique styles for both men and women and the male skins are really sexy.

The skin that I’m showing is more skin from Glam Affair – a Second part of Vera for the Horrorfest event. I love the pale skin and the make up on these. I think they are very striking. You can check out Horrorfest here: http://thedarkcollective.com/horrorfest-2013/ and it runs until November 8th!

Stage and Skies

I really liked Baiastice’s recent release; a rather sexy and slightly androgynous suit. I paired it with some new shoes from Gos Boutique and the newest hair from Truth “Harley” I think went perfectly with the look.

The necklace that I’m wearing = I already blogged. It’s the Eerie charm necklace from Cae. The poses are from Del May and !Bang. My skin this the New Vera skin from Glam affair and my eyes are from Ikon.
