Je T’aime Till My Dying Day‘ ~Enigma~

I’m tempted to give a short list of credits for this picture and song, thinking that it says it all with nothing more needed. But then…….I was thinking about Second Life poses and how important they are and decided to talk a bit about that. First off though….one thing about an AO, they can be used as a pose and if you wait for that fraction of a second where the body is completely aligned perfectly, it can have stunning results. I rarely do this, mainly because I don’t have the timing…..or the patience for the perfect opportunity to come around again. It’s why I rarely photograph others, I need the stars to align correctly in the entire universe to get a shot I can live with. I’ve been using the same AO for a lot of years, I have tons of new bento ones, but none seem like ‘Liz’ like the one I always use…..btw….has anyone ever tried copying their AO in real life? If not……then don’t….it’s not good! 😀 Anyway, poses……….they’ve always been my Second Life fascination…even before I had a need for them. I love to watch Liz pose in all kinds of ways, and I’m super lucky that Vrir’s happy to pose with me for all the time I need to get a shot. I don’t consider myself a ‘photographer’ per se…….I just say I dabble…..but for me the pose is one of the top 3 things that makes a good photograph. Oh…believe me…..I don’t consider mine all good….but I always try. Anyway……the pose, the angle, and the lighting…….those are the big 3 things to work on, for me……..and if all 3 of those things come together in perfect symmetry…..then there’s a good chance for a great shot. Of course……I have a lot of luck with very little planning, mostly…….I cross my fingers……keep doing things until it feels right…. and then edit the crap out of it! That sometimes works too! 😀

So this shot is all about the pose…….it’s couples bento pose C.10(Ultra RARE), from IntoXx. I think the emotions it conveys will depend on the couple in the pose. Vrir and I talked about what we felt the mood is and we had differing views…..neither wrong or right….just different….so I think who you are as a couple is what you’ll see and feel in this one. The gacha set consists of 5 commons, 2 RARE and 1 Ultra RARE….male, female and couples included. IntoXx now has a store at the Voodoo in My Blood sim, too!

My all time favourite tram hair is ‘G1204’.

The question mark tattoos are ‘Enigma’ from Queen oF Ink.

As always, I’m wearing the ‘Maddie’ skin in ‘honey’ tone from The Skinnery on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

Wolves Without Teeth

Wolves Without Teeth

Open my chest and colour my spine
I’m giving you all
I’m giving you all
Swallow my breath
And take what is mine
I’m giving you all
I’m giving you all
I’ll be the blood
If you’ll be the bones
I’m giving you all
I’m giving you all
So lift up my body
And lose all control
I’m giving you all
I’m giving you all
You hover like a hummingbird
Haunt me in my sleep
You’ll sailing from another world
Sinking in my sea, oh
You’re feeding on my energy
I’m letting go of it
She wants it
And I run from wolves, ooh
Breathing heavily
At my feet
And I run from wolves, ooh
Tearing into me
Without teeth
I can see through you
We are the same
It’s perfectly strange
You run in my veins
How can I keep you
Inside my lungs
I breathe what is yours
You breathe what is mine
You hover like a hummingbird
Haunt me in my sleep
You’ll sailing from another world
Sinking in my sea, oh
You’re feeding on my energy
I’m letting go of it
He wants it
And I run from wolves, ooh
Breathing heavily
At my feet
And I run from wolves, ooh
Tearing into me
Without teeth
And you can follow
You can follow me
You can follow
You can follow me
You hover like a hummingbird
Haunt me in my sleep
You’re sailing from another world
Sinking in my sea, oh
“You’re feeding on my energy
I’m letting go of it” she once said
And I run from wolves, ooh
Breathing heavily
At my feet
And I run from wolves, ooh
Tearing into me
Without teeth

Wolves Without Teeth‘ ~Of Monsters And Men~

I just finished breakfast, toast and jam for today, and I’ve got 8 tabs open in Google Chrome, I’m listening to YouTube and I’ve been avoiding WordPress for the last 45 minutes, knowing I have a blog post started and don’t have a clue what to write with it. I have a song……..and this is my new favourite song! I absolutely LOVE ‘Of Monsters and Men’, their lyric videos are completely captivating and this one is stunning. A pair of twins who look so much alike, but by mid song you can see the differences are many. The lyrics are mesmerizing and the singing incredible, and this is one of those songs that touches me. I think it’s the perfect song for this intimate moment with Vrir.

My hair is ‘Yumi’ by [monso] and I’m wearing the ‘Bobbi’ bodysuit by Asteria.

The pose is ‘Yours….’ by CKEY Poses.

(You Make Me Feel Like a) Natural Woman

(You Make Me Feel Like a) Natural Woman

Looking out on the morning rain
I used to feel so uninspired
And when I knew I had to face another day
Lord, it made me feel so tired

Before the day I met you, life was so unkind
But you’re the key to my peace of mind

‘Cause you make me feel
You make me feel
You make me feel like a natural woman

When my soul was in the lost and found
You came along, to claim it
I didn’t know just what was wrong with me
‘Til your kiss helped me name it

Now I’m no longer doubtful of what I’m living for
And if I make you happy I don’t need to do more

‘Cause you make me feel
You make me feel
You make me feel like a natural woman

Oh, baby, what you done to me?
You make me feel so good inside
And I just wanna be close to you
You make me feel so alive

You make me feel
You make me feel
You make me feel like a natural woman

‘(You Make Me Feel Like a) Natural Woman’ ~Adele-Aretha Franklin cover~

It’s Friday, and for some reason that I can’t fathom, I got up before 4 AM, for no apparent reason! I guess it’s good to get at it, although I don’t know what I should get at today! Coffee….I’ll start with that and after that who knows, the sky’s the limit!

The ‘Queen & Diva’ tattoo is a new release from the Carol G Tattoo Studio that’s available at the current round of Cosmopolitan. Now, I don’t think I’m a diva at all, although some may think differently. It’s not like I need my M&M’s without any yellow ones or I only drink water that’s come from a glacier and it’s chilled to a certain temperature. I’m just me, a little picky in some ways, but a diva? Nooooo……I don’t think so! 😀 The tattoo is compatible with the major mesh bodies plus anything Omega driven and it comes in 4 ink tones. I should add that ‘Queen’ applies to the left cheek, and they’re applied separately!

I’m wearing the ‘Charlotte Lingerie’ in black, from BigBeautifulDoll, here. The stockings don’t come with it, but I have plenty of stockings in other lingerie sets from BBD that I could use. It consists of the corset and panties and it’s compatible with Maitreya, SLink(Hourglass), and Belleza(Freya) mesh bodies. It’s available at the current round of Whimsical which runs until September 18.

As usual I’m wearing the ‘Maddie’ skin in ‘honey’ tone from The Skinnery on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

The pose is from the ‘A Bit Shy’ set of poses from MILA.

The photo of me was taken by Mr. S, who has an exhibit right now at Voir Gallery. If you look closely you’ll find me there, too! 😀

Lovesong

Lovesong

Whenever I’m alone with you
You make me feel like I am home again
Whenever I’m alone with you
You make me feel like I am whole again
Whenever I’m alone with you
You make me feel like I am young again
Whenever I’m alone with you
You make me feel like I am fun again

However far away I will always love you
However long I stay I will always love you
Whatever words I say I will always love you
I will always love you

Whenever I’m alone with you
You make me feel like I am free again
Whenever I’m alone with you
You make me feel like I am clean again

However far away I will always love you
However long I stay I will always love you
Whatever words I say I will always love you
I will always love you

However far away I will always love you
However long I stay I will always love you
Whatever words I say I will always love you

I’ll always love you
I’ll always love you
‘Cause I love you
Love, love, love…

Lovesong‘ ~The Cure~

I was running to get into the September round of Collabor88 bright and early yesterday and when I left I had an empty wallet, and my arm was sore from carrying so many bags! So I made multiple costume changes throughout the day but had no wardrobe malfunctions, so all in all it was a good day!

The first thing I grabbed was the ‘Long Sweater’ from Tres Blah! It was one of those instances that the phrase, ‘ask and ye shall receive’ fit! Since it’s sweater weather in my real world a new one is perfect timing, and Vrir and I had discussed all the great things about oversized sweaters, so when I got to C88 it was like it had a ray of sunlight on it and it was calling my name! I got the fat pack to get the 5 bonus colours. It’s fitted for the Maitreya, SLink, and Belleza(Isis/Freya).

The ‘Yumi’ hair is from [monso], and it’s new and exclusive to Collabor88, too!

As always, I’m wearing the ‘Maddie’ skin in ‘honey’ tone from The Skinnery on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

The pose is ‘Model 823’ from Manifeste.

Play Me

Play Me

She was morning, and I was night time
I one day woke up
To find her lying beside my bed
I softly said “Come take me”
For I’ve been lonely in need of someone
As though I’d done someone wrong somewhere
But I don’t know where, I don’t know where
Come lately

You are the sun, I am the moon
You are the words, I am the tune
Play me

Song she sang to me
Song she brang to me
Words that rang in me,
Rhyme that sprang from me
Warmed the night, and what was right
Became me

You are the sun, I am the moon
You are the words, I am the tune
Play me

[Instrumental]

And so it was that I came to travel
Upon a road that was thorned and narrow
Another place, another grace
Would save me

You are the sun, I am the moon
You are the words, I am the tune
Play me
You are the sun, I am the moon
You are the words, I am the tune
Play me……

Play Me‘ ~Neil Diamond~

It’s been a really quiet Saturday, so far…..and I don’t expect it’s going to change. I’m going to keep it simple in order to not overtax my brain, so it’s just a song for you today! And of course a photograph…..of me…….again. I hope you’re all having a great weekend!

I’m using one of the poses from the ‘Bodyache’ sets of poses from Le Poppycock here. There’s 2 sets with 7 poses in each set and they’re all a nice variety of standing, sitting and laying………and all perfectly sexy! The ‘Bodyache’ sets of poses are available now at The Chapter Four.

I’m wearing the sexy ‘Anyway Bodysuit’, in black, from Asteria. It comes with both a solid and a lace version here with the option to wear the belt or not. The metals are HUD driven with 4 options each for the belt and the neck.

The ‘Bloom’ hair is from TRUTH Hair.

I’m wearing the ‘Maddie’ skin in ‘honey’ tone from The Skinnery on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

I’m sitting on the ‘Distressed Piano’ from Nutmeg and the sheet music is also from them, and both are available now at Shiny Shabby.

The ‘Sepia Peonies’ are from Nomad.

I visited the ‘Cafe des Arts’ at Summers Wind for this picture. Imagin@rium Art has an exposition by Giancarlo Perini, from RL to SL, and it’s outside, plus there are some nice pieces inside, which is where I am here.
