Heyyyy………My Face is Up Here

Heyyyy.........My Face is Up Here

While checking out my stats and profile on flickr I found out which of my pictures is most popular. It’s solely rated on the number of faves it has, and I will admit it’s a pretty good one, but, it’s of my a**! yea…of all of my thousand and some pictures that I’ve put on flickr, it’s my a** that everyone wants to see! So, because of that, today I’ll show you my face! You remember my face……it has two eyes, a nose, two lips and a look that brings on the question, ‘what are you mad at?’! And I have to say, ‘It’s just my face!’. In Second Life I have a fairly pretty face that I think represents ‘me’ fairly well. I think it expresses who I am in real life and I look at Liz and see myself. They say the eyes are the window to the soul, but how does anyone see my soul when they only look at my a**? 😛 I’m sure I’ll need to put my back to the camera again and feature my backside, but until then, I guess you can check out my most popular picture on flickr, I’m starting to think it’s my best feature! 😀

Firstly, the ‘Felicity Palm Ring’ from Slipper Originals is a unique piece of jewellery that really stands out from the crowd. It’s a simple band with a gorgeous set of gems set into it to accent the back of the hand! They’re fitted for the Maitreya and SLink bento hands and there’s left and right versions included. Like all HUDs from SO, there’s a schwack of colour options which consists 14 gems and six metals. It’s available for the next few days at Designer Circle, and will then be at the Slipper Originals main store.

At first glance you may think that it’s just another picture of Liz, but if you look closely you may see some slight changes. I’ve been given a chance to preview an upcoming release of a new skin from Avada, and I couldn’t be happier! This is ‘Raine’ in ‘miel’ tone and the detailing is incredible! These lips are begging to be kissed, and by someone that knows how! 😀 You won’t be able to get your own copy of this fab skin until November, but until then….just keep looking at me! Thanks so much, Stephanie for this exclusive preview!

I’m using a pose from the ‘Xion’ set of poses from Animosity! The set includes 6 poses and I want to remind everyone that they’re made for a male avatar so the ladies may have to make some adjustments to their shape for them to work properly. I love the diversity and uniqueness of poses from Animosity, they can really help get the creative juices flowing! The ‘Xion’ set is available at Men Only Monthly until October 15 and then watch for them at the Animosity main store, which is currently under construction.

Pimp My Sh!t is back and going strong in the October round of the Bodyfy event! I’m wearing the ‘Smokey Eyeshadow’ set that’s an exclusive to the event. It’s compatible with Catwa, Lelutka and Omega heads and also classic avatars. I love the smokey look for a dark and mysterious aura!

I new I’d be coming back to wear the ‘Amal’ hair from [BAD HAIR DAY]. It’s just that kind of hair style that I can put on knowing it looks good and I can explore Second Life with confidence! This colour is from the ‘browns’ pack and it’s the first look I’ve shown of all one colour, since I usually opt for a combination of naturals and colours. The [BAD] colour palette is huge and each hair has two layers that can be customized independently along with the inclusion of a mirrored version.

My eyes are one of the ten selections from the ‘Nissa Eyes’ set of eyes from Zombie Suicide.

You’re getting a glimpse of the strap of the ‘Sideview Bodysuit’ from Vale Koer and available at the current round of ~uber~, which runs until October 23.. It’s really worth seeing the whole thing….it’s so sexy! 😉

As usual, I’m wearing the ‘Lilo’ bento mesh head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya, bento hands included.

Crash & Burn

Crash & Burn

hours spent trying to get a picture – 6

cups of coffee consumed during this time – 7

crashes while attempting to take a picture – 11

final shot in only one take – priceless

It was a day of agony for me in Second Life! I woke up with the hopes of getting a picture done and the blog post posted all before noon. But, SL had a different idea. Either Second Life was super glitchy today or my signal sucked, but either way it made life in SL painful, very painful. I had the pose picked out, the outfit done, and I even knew where I was going to take the picture. so needless to say when I crashed on my first attempt I was a little miffed. It wasn’t just a freeze up…it was an all out boot, gone, outa here. And so I log in and try again, because at first it could just be a minor issue….it does happen to me….so I wasn’t alarmed at all. I get back in, all set up and have the angle right……and poof….gone again! Well, I’m patient and determined so I’ll give it another go! And again……so after a few times I gave up, pretending I didn’t want to take a picture anyway. I did some browsing and visited the new round of N21, which is always a good event. I tried again a little later in the day and since I now have the location and wind light and everything all chosen, it doesn’t take long to get ready. This time it slows down, I get the little round spinny thing telling me to wait and I’m hoping, with fingers crossed, and…….it’s gone! Needless to say, I did more shopping and even though I should have been doing something productive, I just wasn’t in the mood. It came to a total of 11 crashes during several attempts during the day. But, at one point, the photo gods were in my favour. I carefully got everything set, hoping it would work, but not expecting it to, and lo and behold! Eureka!!!! We have lift off!! Arms in the air…it’s up and it’s good!! Ok….ahem…I got a little carried away there, but with the day I’ve had I felt such relief. I’m not sure if all the effort was worth it, I thought a few things could have been tweaked, but there was no way I’m trying it again. I just want to get this done, and call it a day. 😀

I have a few things going on in this one, and for a girl that doesn’t like heights….I’m at it again. I’m balancing on the balustrade, concentrating hard trying not to fall. I know it’s not the fall that hurts, it’s the landing…..but I want to avoid both of those if I can.

So lets start, shall we? I have two things to show you from the September round of Men Only Monthly! First off, is the pose. This is pose 2 from the ‘Egypt’ set of bento poses from Animosity, I will specify that they are intended for men, but I can make them work with just a few tweaks to my shape. The set includes a nice variety of poses, 6 in total, and ranging from stands, balancing, and sitting or laying. They’re the perfect set for enjoying a fall evening on the balcony. MOM runs until October 15.

Also at Men Only Monthly, is the ‘Mjolnirr Necklace’ from !NFINITY. It’s known as ‘Thor’s hammer’ and it’s the weapon that ‘Thor’, from Norse mythology, carries in to war. Thor is the god of thunder, lightening, wind, rain, and oak trees, so I don’t think it’s a great idea to p**s him off! Anyway, the necklace is unrigged mesh, scripted to resize and comes in three metals with each metal having 3 cord options.

I’m wearing the September VIP group gift from [KoKoLoReS], here, and it’s always been one of my faves. It’s ‘Jin’ and it’s unrigged mesh with the VIP gift HUD including 6 versatile colours. You’ve got until the end of the month to pick it up and if you’re not a VIP I do suggest you become one! A one time fee of 250L$ you’ll get a monthly gift, and I do mean a regular monthly gift! Well worth it!

The ‘Cozumel, royal blue’ is from Emery. I think I look a little disheveled with a nice and casual bed head and bit of a wrinkly top! This is pretty darn close to me in RL! 😀

I had lost this cute little kitty tattoo in my inventory for quite awhile, but I stumbled upon it the other day and was pleasantly surprised. It’s the ‘Black Cat tattoo’ from Carol G Tattoo. I think it was part of a ‘Bish Box’ and I looked on MP and in the main store but couldn’t find it! So, I’m not sure if it’s available!

The ‘Dita Denim Shorts’ are from Lapointe & Bastchild.

My look all starts with the ‘Luna’ skin in ‘miel’ tone from Avada on the ‘Lilo 3.0’ bento mesh head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya. My mesh eyes are from the ‘Nissa’ set of eyes from Zombie Suicide.

I found out about Arranmore from a friend and I’m going to be doing more exploring in the next month or so. I know there’s a tent with really creepy clowns in it. I’m sure they float down there. 😀

It’s Labour Day

It's Labour Day

It’s unofficially official, it’s the end of summer today! Summer’s such a short season, it starts on the long weekend in May, which for us Canucks is called Victoria Day and ends on the first weekend in September, which is Labour Day. When I was younger it seemed that the summer was endless. But, as I’ve gotten older, time has sped up and this summer seemed to pass overnight. It just seems like yesterday was the end of April and I was planning the coming growing season, and here we are, already Labour Day and the weather forecast has a risk of frost here. I won’t be surprised if it does freeze, it’s not like this is early, our average first frost in this area is September 7, so we’re close to average. So, after a summer busy with all of the summer work I can now relax a little, and begin the fall work. It’s just as busy, but with winter getting closer, time is of the essence!

I hope everyone’s having a great long weekend, I’ve had a quiet one, which is just the way I like it. And now, on with the show.

I’m lounging on my deck today, and it was the perfect place to strike a pose! The pose here is from the ‘Steve’ set of bento poses from Animosity. The set has has 5 poses plus their mirrors and also a couple with 2 versions. It’s a very nice variety for the guy that’s in deep thought or at least pretending to be. 😀 Animosity has been releasing some incredible men’s poses, but you know me with poses…men’s…women’s…it doesn’t matter to me……I love them all!

I’m wearing the ‘Tess’ Romper from /erratic/ here. It’s exclusively for the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya and comes in a plethora of colours and prints, plus a fatpack. I chose the ‘camo’! It’s available now at the current round of ~uber~.

The ‘Pepper’ hair is one of my faves from [KoKoLoReS].

As per usual, I’m wearing the ‘Luna’ skin in ‘vivante’ tone from Avada, on the ‘Lilo’ bento mesh head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya. I’ve added a touch of shadow from the ‘Sydney’ Catwa appliers from Le Boheme.

And as for my surroundings, you ask? Well, the ‘Maple Leaf’ flag, which I proudly display in my home, is from 7 Emporium. The two ‘Reiley Net Chairs’ are from Trompe Loeil. The ‘Sunflower Pitcher’ from {what next} helps to create the autumn atmosphere. The small coffee table is from the ‘Storyteller’s Burrow’ gacha set from 8f8. And the two cups of Latte are from a gacha set from Standby, for which I couldn’t find a land mark, I’m not sure if they’ve gone, but I couldn’t find them.
