Second Life Fashion News, all rumours all the time!

It’s come to my attention that there’s been much speculation about why TinLiz Winterstorm has been putting her back to the many cameras that surround her so often of late! It’s been some time since she’s faced fully a camera and with the recent spate of back only photos coming out of her camp, people are starting to wonder what’s going on!

“I’ve heard she’s had work done on her face and since it’s not healing too well, she can’t bear to face a camera”, says an unnamed source close to the blogger. There’s also been rumours swirling that the agoraphobia she once suffered from is now coming back. “I don’t think she’s ever out in public much, I heard she’s ordered pizza four days in a row just to not be seen”, says a follower.

We here at ‘Second Life Fashion News’ have reached out to Ms. Winterstorm several times and has had no response. Regardless of the reason, only time will tell when TinLiz Winterstorm will once again reveal her face, but with the amount of concern from her fans, lets hope that it’s nothing serious and she’s all right.

This is entirely fiction. There is no Second Life News, that I know of, and I don’t have any followers or fans who would spread such stories about me!! I’ve not had any plastic surgery done, or suffer from agoraphobia. Also, there’s no pizza place even close to where I live that delivers, so I have no idea where that came from! πŸ˜€

And on a more serious note, a new group gift from Tres Blah has been released! The ‘Scalloped Bathing Suit’ is perfectly feminine with the hips cut a little higher and the neckline plunging just a bit, it’s the perfect combination of fun and flirty! The gift includes eight colours and it can be yours, all you have to do is wear your group tag and click! The VIP group has a 100L$ fee to join, but the high quality, regular gifts and the store credit you receive back make it well worth it!

The ‘Free to Love’ tattoo is currently at The Chapter Four for it’s final few days, but after that I’m sure it’ll be at the Carol G Tattoo Wear main store. It’s compatible with the Maitreya, SLink, Belleza, and TMP mesh bodies plus also any mesh body that’s Omega compatible. The Chapter Four runs until the end of the month.

The MAYU hair from Argrace is my favourite short windy style at this time. This is from the dark browns pack.

And as per usual I’m wearing the ‘Luna’ skin in ‘vivante’ tone from Avada on the ‘Lilo’ mesh head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

This pose is from Artis Photography and Poses and from the High F Single Poses 2. I’m using it to wade in the cool waves on the beautiful shore of Corlevoli Beach.

Apricot Explosion

I’ve got my cup of coffee, it’s sprinkling a little bit of rain outside, and the laundry is on the spin cycle, what more does a girl need on a Saturday morning? But that has nothing to do with what I want to talk about today. I want to say a few words about Second Life photography and the use of Photo Shop. I’ve thought about this topic for quite some time and after a very nice conversation with fellow blogger, Hunnie Von Munster I’ve decided to take on this topic in a blog post. I will admit that I don’t use Photo Shop(as anyone can probably tell) and probably never will, for no other reason than my attention span for learning lasts about 45 seconds and I don’t think I could master PS in that time! I’m happy using windlight and a little bit of editing in my now obsolete Picasa program. I enjoy seeing the different effects that can be obtained by windlight alone, and take my time trying different ones, for each picture. Lord knows I can’t remember what one gives what effects, but though it takes time, I do enjoy it. With that said, I also love the effects that Photo Shop can bring to a photograph. I’m totally blown away every day by the incredible creativity shown by so many Second Life photographers. I admire the incredible talent and the work put into the photos, and I favourite all that catch my eye. But, there’s always a but isn’t there! But, my one pet peeve in the world of Second Life photography is when photo contests are held there’s no distinction made between photographs that have post processing done and those that don’t. In my mind it’s comparing apples to oranges. They’re all beautiful in their own way, but they cannot be compared. I’d like to see more separation between the two photography styles and have them both embraced equally as separate entities. I don’t think it’s about one being better than the other, they’re just different ways of being creative, and that’s what it’s all about.

You an check out Hunnie’s work on her blog and flickr.

Okay, now how bout those colours! I do have a passion for the orange shades and maybe I’ve overdone it a bit here, but I couldn’t help myself. To start with, the ‘Annabelle Bodysuit, from Stories&Co. by Flowey comes in some spectacular colours! It’s exclusively for the Lara mesh body and comes in lots of colours, with the set of 5 ‘nude’ tones in a HUD driven, set at a reduced price. The one I’m wearing here is one of the ‘nude’ options! There’s also a transparent top version for each colour. This bodysuit is available now exclusively at ~uber~.

The ‘Ribbon Collar’ from !NFINITY is one of my favourites, it’s resizable, HUD driven with 7 colour options for the ribbon and comes in either gold(seen here), silver, or black metal.

The ‘Meditation Flower, black’ tattoo is from Carol G Tattoo Wear. It’s a group gift for the SLF&O group, so you can drop in at the main store, join that group and grab it. The group is free to join.

As always, I’m wearing the ‘Luna’ skin in ‘peche’ tone from Avada on the ‘Lilo’ bento mesh head from Catwwa and the Lara mesh body from Maitreya. I’ve added a touch of eye shadow from the ‘Shoreline Set’ from WarPaint. It’s available at the current round of AppliquΓ¨.

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

One of my favourite hair is the Anime 05 from Dura Hair.

This pose is from the ‘Wet Sand A’ set of poses from BODYLANGUAGE SLC. The set contains six bento poses perfect for the beach or bedroom.

Behind me is the lovely view I have from my home. I’m on my Mid Century Bed from Dutchie and the Rubber Tree houseplant is from What Next.

Great Ideas

The idea to make a machine that slices a loaf of bread was a great idea. The day I decided to cut off an electrical wire with a pair of pliers, without shutting the breaker off…..not so much. Indoor plumbing was an idea that was pure genius. The time my sister said, ‘Hey, lets crawl up the bale elevator’, wasn’t. One broken leg and much crying ensued, but then, I was only 6. πŸ˜€ Whoever had the idea for an automatic washing machine was pretty darn smart. When Dad said to me, ‘Hang on to that board while I sand it’, I should have been smart enough to see this coming and walked away! But instead I got my hand sanded with a belt sander….good idea? Nope…not even close. What I’m getting at here is that there are so many people that have great ideas, and my family and I are more like a Jackass movie!! It’s my own fault, really. I’m sure climbing the bale elevator would have been fun had I been older and a little less clumsy, my sister made it up and back safely….but no, I break my leg while at the bottom. The hand sanding(as we like to call it) was nothing more than me helping Dad out, and since I’m a people pleaser I help when someone needs it! For the record, it only bled for a little while and he laughed.. The live wire and pliers incident I have a harder time explaining, I guess I just wasn’t thinking. A note to anyone who does want to try it, don’t wear a fuzzy sweater when you do, it gets scorch marks down the front! πŸ˜€ These are just a few anecdotes that stand out it my thoughts right now, I’m sure everyone has moments like these….. at least I hope so.

The Epiphany opened yesterday, it only comes around four times a year, so it’s always exciting when the doors finally open. I was up bright and early this morning and managed to gain access to it, much to my surprise. There’s all kinds of goodies to play for this round and there’s also some gifts in celebration of The Epiphany’s birthday. Veechi is at this round and has an incredible gacha set of goodies! The ‘Desert Sun ‘ catwa make up gacha is a collection of vibrant desert colours with shadow and lip tint among the commons and one of the RARE items being lashes! I’m so excited to be able to wear all these goodies since my acquisition of the Lilo bento mesh head from Catwa. I’m wearing one of the two options from the Lush Lashes, RARE prize and one of the three options from the Victoria Shadow, naturals set. In all, there’s ten commons and 2 RARE to play for. The Epiphany runs until August 15.

In the world of Group Gifts, !NFINITY has the Emme Summer Top out free for group members and it’s perfect for these hot summer days. It’s compatible with the Maitreya, SLink, Belleza, Tonic, and TMP mesh bodies, and also comes in standard sizes plus, it’s HUD driven including eight colours. The group has a 50L$ one time fee to join, but with regular gifts and reduced pricing on new releases, it’s well worth it!!

There’s still a few days left in the current round of Shiny Shabby and LEGAL INSANITY has the Ella Denim Shorts exclusive to the event. They fit like a glove and look incredible with a slimming leg and a nice round butt. πŸ˜€ They’re compatible with the Maitreya, SLink, and Belleza mesh bodies and they come in four denim tones, sold separately or as a fatpack. Shiny Shabby runs until July 20.

The July round of The Chapter Four is still going strong with lots of time left for you to get your shopping done! {MYNX} has the ‘Beach Beads’ gacha set there for your playing enjoyment. These bangles just scream fun and summery and with ten commons and two RARES to play for, you’ll have as much fun as a beer commercial. πŸ˜› I’m wearing the ‘Beach Beads-Starfish, RARE which is colour change via drop down menu with six colours for the cord.

This is how I look before every blog post I write, if you want to know the truth, although I’m not usually smiling. πŸ˜€ RC Cluster has the ‘Really Neat Notepad and thinking pencils’ gacha set at The Epiphany and I got the ‘Great Ideas’ version to help stimulate my brain! You get the notepad and the ‘thinking pencil’ in each prize with arm poses included. Just add the two things to yourself after you’re in the pose you want and your arms will do do their thing!

You might want to zoom in a bit in flickr to catch a good look at the pretty manicure I have on. This is from the ‘Grapefruit Mimosa’ applier set from Hello Dave. It’s compatible with SLink, Omega and Maitreya nails. This is one of five colours in the mini set.

I love the ‘Satomi’ hair from [monso]. The hair is shaped into cute little kitty ears and tied loosely at the back. It’s at the Hair Fair 2017 today, but with this being the last day it should move to the [monso] main store shortly.

The ‘Just Love’ tattoo is a group gift from Carol G Tattoo Wear. I like it’s simple message that isn’t thought of enough. There’s five other group gifts available for group members at this time.

I’m using the animations HUD for the Lilo bento mesh head from Catwa here to make this look that kind of looks like I’m happily thinking good things. I will admit that this isn’t the picture I wanted for this post, but after crashing a whole bunch of times while trying to take a different shot, I finally gave up and settled on this one. I just didn’t have the energy to log back in and do it all over again, I’m sure there’s a fellow blogger or two that might feel my pain. πŸ˜€ So, to make the Lilo head look fab I’m using the Luna skin in ‘peche’ tone from Avada. I just love this look and find it hard to try others, so Luna it is! And as always, I’m wearing the Lara mesh body from Maitreya.

As for the nice decor around me at home, the Visual Bench 1, RARE is from the ‘Visual’ gacha set from Concept. The ‘Beach’ sign is from the Coastal Cabin gacha set from Bee Designs. The Birdacge Decor and the Ladders & Bird Houses are from the ‘Courtil’ gacha set from Myrinne.

I’m on the deck of the Boat Shack from REDGRAVE Homes and Interiors.

Feel the Heat

The sun burns down, making shimmery heat waves rise from the ground, and as I look up into the clear sky that’s more white than blue, I know that the coming night will be one that makes sleeping difficult! Unless, of course, you have air conditioning, of which I do not! Once the temperature is the same outside as in, I open up all the windows and try to catch a breeze to cool it off in here. I hope for a west wind for the evenings and night since that’s the direction my bedroom window faces, having a cool breeze wafting in can make it easier to get some sleep! I’m one of those people that needs to have covers over me while I sleep. Most nights it’s too warm for that….but dammit, I’m too scared of the monsters to sleep without the covers!

The July round of Collabor88 is open to the public, and Stories&Co. by Flowey has released the Reverse Vneck exclusively for it! It’s Maitreya and SLink mesh body compatible and comes with the regular busted version along with Vtech version, which has no bust influence at all, no matter your shape. It comes in fifteen colours, prints and solids, for great summer fashion!

Also new at C88 is the Summer Short Jeans with belt from Zenith. It’s a nice simple pair of shorts to just kick around, trying to stay cool this summer!

I love a little tattoo that brings attention to an area of my body that isn’t normally seen! The ‘Freedom’ tattoo from Carol G Tattoo Wear is 3D and really eye catching! I like a tattoo that makes a statement!

The ‘Skye Hair’ is from +elua+. This is from the blacks pack!

The Hipster Panties are one of my favourite things to sleep in when it’s hot! They’re exclusive for the Lara mesh body from Maitreya.

I’m wearing the Lilo bento mesh head from Catwa with the ‘Luna’ skin in ‘peche’ tone from Avada! Along with the Lara mesh body from Mairreya.

The ‘back burner’ pose is from the ‘Loose Ends’ pose set from Le Poppycock.

I’m at home for this shot in front of my Mid Century bed from Dutchie!

Happy Fathers Day to All the Dad's Out There!

I want to dedicate this post to all the great Fathers out there, my own Dad included! I’m very lucky to still have both of my parents with me and I’m thankful each and every day for it! Dad has always been there for me! He’s seen me through the bad times and the worse times. He’s always been my fixer! It’s like he could always fix anything for me, whether it was something physical like a bicycle or some sort of trouble that only listening can help. He may not always understand me, but he always has the best intentions! I do wish he’d learn though, the one thing he always says to me if I start to get mad at something is, ‘Well, don’t get excited!’! I’ve told him, over and over again, that those words have NEVER worked to calm someone down and actually it only makes it worse! But, he continues to say it and I keep falling into the trap of getting more mad! πŸ˜€ I guess some things will never change! But, that’s not a bad thing, because we laugh at it after and I call him a B*****d and he calls me a B***h, and all is good again! I love my Dad, I’ll always feel like Daddy’s little girl, no matter how old I am!

I’ll start with the ‘Quinn’ hair from [KoKoLoReS] that I’m wearing here! This is from the Bayalage pack, which has 30 textures to choose from, like all packs from [KoKoLoReS]. I know I’m not blonde very often but I fell in love with this one! ‘Quinn’ is on sale now at the June round of Hair O Logy, which runs until June 30.

The ‘Just Love’ tattoo from Carol G Tattoo Wear is the latest group gift and it’s beautiful in it’s simplicity! There’s just not enough love in this world, that’s one thing I know! The group is 100L$ to join, but there’s new group gifts released regularly, so it’s a very good deal!

The ‘Luma’ Tube Top from Just BECAUSE is available at the current round of Collabor88! I couldn’t resist the fatpack, so I’ll be wearing it regularly!

The ‘Malena Denim Shorts, high rise’ from Addams are going to be my go to shorts for the summer! They’re compatible with the SLink, Maitreya, and Belleza mesh bodies and also come in standard sizes.

The Choker(B) is from C L A Vv. and part of the ‘My Edgy Look’ gacha set available now at Kustom9.

The whole look starts with the Alex mesh head from Logo with the Luna skin in ‘peche’ tone from Sinful Curves Skins. Which is rebranding and will be Avada. I’m wearing the Lara mesh body from Maitreya, too!

The manly pose is from Le Poppycock! I really like male poses, women’s poses never seem to have this pensive look!

I think I’ve got a thing with this little church at The Last Forever! I love this stretch of road and with this windlight it’s kind of eerie!
