lassitude & ennui

Little Texas

I’ve spent quite a bit of time in Texas! I’ve been to the ‘Big D’ and I do mean Dallas, I’ve seen the ‘West Texas town of El Paso’, and I’ve been to Luckenbach but didn’t see Waylan, Willie, or the boys! I made it to ‘Amarillo by mornin’, which I will say is home to the busiest buffet I’ve ever seen at 3 AM! I got a flat tire in Hunstville, but luckily my stay was short! I’ve been to Galveston and Corpus Christi, and San Antonio was quiet, I was just killing time! I’ve driven past the exit to ‘Noodle Dome Road’, and had the biggest frizzy hair after days spent in Houston with the 200% humidity, but best of all was the 2 days I waited to unload 45,000 lbs of dripping, stinking, and generally unpleasant cow hides to a tannery in Fort Worth! It was July and needless to say, the days were a little hot! When the day came I could finally unload, I started opening the doors to the trailer and saw that they had fallen over, as I swung the door open a stream of warm wet hides rolled out onto the ground at my feet! Yes, I’ve seen a lot of Texas, but one place I never got to was Marfa! And after time spent at ‘The Last Forever‘ sim, I really wish I had! For anyone who’s not a country music fan, there are references to country songs here! 😀

I’ll get my mind off of the memories and get to work on this outfit! I’ll start with the shoes! It’s not a very close look at the Panda,RARE flats from the Animal Flats gacha set from lassitude & ennui! They’re available at The Gacha Garden and the whole set is super cute! They fit the Maitreya and SLink flat feet and there’s eleven commons and three rare to play for! And remember that with enough plays you’ll automatically get the Seeds of Inspiration gift! There’s nothing better than a cute pair of flats, long evenings, and ice cream in the summertime!

The May round of The Chapter Four is it’s 4th Anniversary, so wear your group tag and grab the gifts! And while you’re there pick up the ‘Convolutions A & B’ pose sets from Le Poppycock!

I can’t believe it! I got into the May round of Collabor88 this morning and it was so unexpected that I ended up having a shopping spree! I grabbed the Betina Tank Top from Addams, since I just knew it’s a must have!! I got the fatpack which has an almost endless number of colours so you’ll be seeing me in this top often! It ‘s fitted for the SLink, Maitreya, and Belleza mesh bodies. You can also try to get access to C88 by cam shopping!

Also at C88 are the incredible Carrie Denim Shorts from erratic! They’re HUD driven with the optional tie on scarf and the back pockets colour change! They fit the Lara mesh body from Maitreya!

The Countess glasses, by Earthstones, are at the current round of The Liaison Collaborative! The metal, lens, and gems are colour change on touch.

The Bow Trinket necklace, from which I’m wearing just a part of, is from Pink Acid and also at C88! See, I did go on a shopping spree this morning!

The KAHUZA hair is a new release from Argrace!

My look all starts with the Alex mesh head from Logo with the Luna skin in ‘peche’ tone from Sinful Curves Skins. Along with the Lara mesh body from Maitreya and the flat feet from SLink.

Free Bird

When I’m struggling to find something to write about for a blog post I like to get on YouTube and watch a few vintage videos and listen to some great music that delivers me back to another time and place! I came across this video and as I watched it I felt like I was there, on that early July day in Oakland, California in 1977, Lynyrd Skynyrd’s on stage and they’re about to do ‘Free Bird’. There’s just something about this one that makes me long for something, I’m not even sure what, since I was pretty young when this was filmed! I probably didn’t even know what a ‘Lynyrd Skynyrd’ was back then, but at this point in my life, this video takes me back. It doesn’t make me want to go back to that time in my life, the last thing I’d ever want is to have to go through my teenage years and twenties again! Maybe it makes me wish my life was different at that time. This was filmed almost 40 years ago, hard to believe really! I don’t know how that many years can go by, but still feel like it was yesterday!

I’ll admit that I do struggle with a fantasy themed photo. I love all the fantasy items in Second Life, and I know that the term ‘fantasy’ can mean whatever I want to interpret it as, but I find it so hard! When I put these beautiful Bento Fairy Wings from lassitude & ennui on, I almost felt fairy-like in them. They have lovely detail and come in six gorgeous colours, each colour has gold and silver trim. The animation runs automatically, but you do need the bento compatible viewer, which Firestorm and the official Second Life viewer both are. These are available at the current round of We Love RolePlay, which runs until the end of the month.

You can only see the top of the cute M105 hair from .:CHEVEUX:., here, but it’s a short windswept style that looks so cute! It’s available at the current round of SaNaRaE, which runs until March 18.

The Colette Thong in ivory is from /erratic/.

I’m wearing the Alex mesh head from Logo with the Alexa skin in honey tone from Sinful Curves Skins, along with the Lara mesh body from Maitreya, and the mesh feet and Bento mesh hands from SLink.

This lovely pose is one of the three poses in the ‘falling’ pack from Serendipity.
