Tattoo You

Tattoo You

It used to be only a certain type of person got a tattoo! It was the rebels and the bikers then, but it’s become very mainstream now and much more accepted by most people. I know there’s lots of people that frown on them still, but I’m not one of them. I will admit to having a couple of my own in real life. I’ve had them for quite a few years, and thankfully I put them in places where gravity won’t affect them too much. Gravity is a harsh mistress, you know! 😀 I have one on my ankle and one on my shoulder, both fairly small and covered most of the year. I sometimes forget I have them, really. One of my real life neighbours is quite covered in tattoos. I’ve not seen him without a shirt, but he has full sleeves and there’s tattoo peaking out of the neckline of his T shirt so he appears to be covered. So with him looking very much like what you’d think of as a biker or a rebel it was surprising the first time I talked to him. He never swears, he’s super polite, and always calls me dear, in a nice way. He doesn’t have a motorcycle, but he rebuilds old cars and is exceptionally good at it! But you know what I mean, he’s tattooed, he has big bushy hair down past the tops of his shoulders, his beard is a little longer than that and he has tattoos, so you’d think he’s the stereotypical rebel. But no, he’s just a nice guy living his life and would give you the shirt off his back if you needed it. I hope one day someone needs it, I’d like to see how much of him is tattooed!

When I started my Second Life I fell in love pretty much right from the first with virtual tattoos. The quality of them has improved immensely since I was young in this virtual world and with the mesh bodies the detailing can be incredible! I’m so excited to see PIMP MY SHI!T back with new releases for the August round of the Bodyfy event. I’m wearing the Octo Tattoo in medium ink tone, although it comes in colour also and has three ink tones. It’s Omega and TMP compatible and can be worn on all layers. So happy to see PMS back in action!! Bodyfy runs until August 30.

The pose I’m using here is one of the five in the ‘Suri’ set of poses from Imitaion. I’ve always loved SL poses and Imitation is one of my favourite pose stores. The sets are all bento enabled and they’re so expressive and alive. I really think Bento hands have changed the way bloggers and photographers can create photos that really show emotion and bring their scenes to life. You can also find Imitation on Market Place.

The Chapter Four has always been one of my favourite SL events, and I’m so lucky to be able to feature all the incredible work by the designers who participate. I’m featuring some of the gacha items from the ‘Dark Oak’ gacha set from Bee Designs. The Arm Chair, Side Table, and the Poster are all part of the set which has eight common and two RARE to play for. The Chapter Four runs until the end of the month.

The rest of the items that make my home cozy are the ‘Filmore Factory Clock’ from 7 Emporium, the ‘Star Globe,RARE’ lamp from the ‘Vintage Lighting’ gacha set from ::Static:: and available at The Gacha Garden. The ‘Majestic Radio’ is from the ‘Vintage Radio’ gacha set from KraftWork. Each radio in the set has two versions, one scripted for use as a radio and one for decor only. The house plants on the left are from {what next}. The ‘Reading Pile’ of books is from a gacha set from Apple Fall and the books beside the chair are from [zerkalo].

And as for me? I’m wearing the ‘Candice’ set from [Azuchi]. It includes the panties and top, it comes in ten colours and is available at the current round of ~uber~. I’m wearing the ‘Luna’ skin in ‘peche’ tone from Avada on the ‘Lilo’ bento mesh head from Catwa along with the ‘Lara’ mesh body(including bento hands) from Maitreya. I’ve added a little bit of ‘Smoky Eyeshadow’ from Izzie’s to the look. My eyes are from the ‘Nissa Eyes’ pack from Zombie Suicide and the WAKANA hair is from Argrace.

Orange Makes Me Happy!

Orange Makes Me Happy!

There’s a colour for every mood, and for me orange is happy! I don’t care what tone it is, light, dark, or otherwise, I just love orange! Needless to say, I love all of autumn’s colours! The rich greens, golds, and browns comfort me! Only Mother Nature can decorate the world and not have any colours clash! At this time of year, as the leaves fall and the grass dies, the prairie’s colour palette is rich in all tones of brown, yellow, and red! Everything is still hanging on, ever so slightly, to summer’s growth! A month from now and everything will have faded to all the shades of grey, which makes the short days of winter all the more somber! But, I enjoy fall for as long as it lasts, even though today all the wonderful colours are buried under a foot of snow! Fall will return in a couple days……I hope!

I love wearing orange, but when I saw the HUD for the Urban Denim Skirt from [QE], I had a hard time choosing! The skirt comes in either the black fades or light fades and they’re on sale for the month of October for Buy Now! Buy Now is a sale event solely on Market Place, so there’s no lag to bog you down! These skirts come in five sizes and fitted for the Maitreya, Lara and SLink, Hourglass and Physique mesh bodies. You can drop in at the [QE] main store and check out some new releases too!!

The 4th of October has brought a new round of The Chapter Four! I’m always eager to see what purely perfect poses Le Poppycock has come up with! There are two packs of the Cherry Wine pose sets and also two couples poses! The Love Connection couples poses are absolutely adorable, and it’s times like these I need a man……to help me show them off!

It’s fairly early in the October round of Designer Showcase, but there’s no time like the present to do some retail therapy! DaneMarkZ has the Fashionably Dead nail applier, exclusive to Designer Showcase! The nail applier is Omega and Maitreya compatible and has a dozen colours to choose from….orange included as you can see!

I love this tattoo! It’s the In The Shadows Tattoo from Pimp My Sh!t, and like all the rest from PMS, it’s super detailed, original, and has just a bit of attitude! The tattoo is classic avatar and Omega and TMP mesh body compatible and comes in three ink tones! I’m always a medium tone kind of girl!!

I’m wearing the Jackson Wedge/Tiptoe Sneakers again, and this time around there’s a close up so you can see the great details! They’re from Mesh Agency, on Market Place, and are HUD driven with lots of colours to choose from! They’re compatible with the Maitreya, Belleza, SLink, TMP, and Eve mesh feet and also classic avatars!

The Staley Top is from Vinyl.

I love the hair and cap combination from BesomxFlite! This is from the blacks pack.

As always, I am the Nelly 2.0 mesh head from genesis Labs, the Lara mesh body from maitreya, and the casual hands and high feet from SLink.

I’m in a sketchy part of town at After The Fall for these pictures!

What’s Your Name?

What's Your Name

I love seeing all the different names in Second Life! I started SL in January of 2012, which unfortunately, was after SL stopped using last names! So, like all the others after that, I’m just ‘resident’! I always type ‘resident’ with a small ‘r’, because I don’t consider it part of my name. I’m TinLiz Winterstorm…..and proud of it! I know TinLiz is an odd name! I’d like to say it was a well thought out name that I had in my mind for a long time. But, that’s not the way it is! When first joining Second Life, when it asked for username, all the ones I had in mind were used, and I didn’t want a number in my name. So, after oodles of tries I finally managed to find a name that is kind of like what I initially wanted, and without a number. After this many years, I finally realized that ‘TinLiz’ is actually a combination of two nicknames I was called when I was a kid. And once I realized that, I started to really like this name. I do prefer ‘Liz” but TinLiz works too! Or even ‘Tin’…I don’t mind that either. Once I put on a last name I liked, I then became who I am in Second Life. Which is pretty much the real me. I don’t have the mental energy to be fake or some kind of pretend person. I’m just me! So you can call me Tin, or you can call me TinLiz, or you can call me Liz…..but please don’t call me ‘resident’!

I’m a little confused with the Fluffy and Fierce Event! Not by what it is….but in how to pick one or the other! So, I’ve picked one of each to show you! Firstly, I have on the Sydney Dress from [QE]! Sidney is fierce and also really pretty! It’s HUD driven with eight colours for the skirt layers and four colours for the top, plus it has three areas to customize. It comes in five standard sizes plus fitted versions for the Maitreya and SLink mesh bodies. While you’re at the F & F Event grab the hints at each booth, then head to the main store to find your free gift!

Also, at the Fluffy and Fierce Event is Pimp My Sh!t with two fluffy and two fierce tattoos exclusive for the event. I’m wearing the Fluffy Tiger tattoo, in medium ink tone, which is perfectly detailed and compatible with the classic avatars, plus Omega and TMP mesh bodies!

Take a gander at these absolutely stunning pumps!! The Krista Stilettos from NX-Nardcotix come in sixteen colours and are compatible with the SLink, Maitreya, and Belleza feet. They have beautiful detail, rich colours, and a unique style that stand out from the rest!

These nail appliers rock! There’s sixteen Pussycat Claws nail applier packs to choose from….and in each pack there’s one claw going to opposite direction, which goes on the thumb…a la kitty cat! Hello Dave always has something fun and exciting to paint your SLink or Omega compatible nails with!

The Miss CoCo hair, browns pack is from Vanity Hair and available at the current round of Hair O Logy.

The Mata Hari, high neck necklace from Maxi Gossamer Jewellery is a must have!

And as always I’m wearing the Nelly mesh head from Genesis Labs, the Lara mesh body from Maitreya , and the high feet and elegant hands from SLink.

The poses are from the Marilyn Series from an lar [poses].

I made a trip to Hazardous for these pictures.

Life Swap

Life Swap

It’s been awhile since my last post, and at this point I just want to completely swap lives! I’d love to make my Second Life my first life…really! The worries are less, the fun is more, and the days can be sunny all the time! I normally don’t like to say, “I’m busy”! The word ‘busy’ is used so much in today’s world that I’m the kind of person that’s usually not busy at all, even though I have all my work done and under control! But, this spring has seemed busier than usual! It might just seem like I have no time for Second Life, or maybe it’s my energy level is less than usual. When I’m done my work I just want to recline in my chair and watch a little bit of TV and read the book of the moment! So, if I could only make my Second Life my real life! I’d be younger, slimmer, more beautiful, and dress a whole lot better! I’d have two homes and the freedom to travel, I’d shop all the time and store all my stuff in a closet that never runs out of space, and when I’m done all that, after a short sit down on the deck of my beach cabin, I’d get up and do it all over again!

I want to show you a little something that I received from a friend who now has a little shop on Market Place! I’m using the photo prop “The Visitor” from IMMERSIV by Green Adder! It’s a nice little dock on the shore with twelve poses for him, her and a couple! And each pose has a nicely placed ladybug to keep you company! It’s copy/modify and the water and bottom surface can be made invisible! It makes a nice relaxing place to sit and ponder life!

The Trio Bird necklace from FLIPPANT is a pretty little accessory for some summer fun! It’s the group gift for June so just become a member of the group(free to join) and head over to the new main store…..and it’s yours! It can be resized via drop down menu and it’s 100% mesh!

The Tropical Summer Fair is on and Veechi has some darling nail appliers exclusive to the event! The Sunset Tips completely epitomize what summer is all about! The pack contains ten colours and it’s compatible with SLink, Maitreya, and Omega! The fair runs until June 17, so don’t wait too long to get some summer shopping done!

You can see a little part of the Butterfly Medley tattoo from Pimp My Sh!t! It’s Omega and TMP compatible along with tattoo layers for the classic avatars! It has three ink tones and speaks loudly of happy summer times!

The Cassie Bikini is from Absolut Vendetta!

The Nelly Mesh head, from Genesis Laboratories, is now my head of choice. I’m wearing it in the cream skin tone.

The Boys & Girls 58 hair is from Dura.

Jump of Joy

Jump of Joy

With arms outstretched I thank.
With heart beating gratefully I love.
With body in health I jump for joy.
With spirit full I live.

~Terri Guillemets~

The feeling of joy can be fleeting if not given the chance to grow and become established! Too often, life’s troubles get in the way of the true joy of life, and we then struggle mentally and physically. It’s time to move the body, breathe in deep of the fresh air and run, dance, and jump! Life waits for no one, and if it’s not lived with joy what then is the purpose?

I’m super excited to be chosen to feature a new event that’s come to the grid! The Pose Hop is beginning it’s inaugural round on May 15 and I’m pumped to show you what the designers have been working on for it! I’ll say it again that I love poses! Ever since I tried a few out early in my Second Life, and wondered what the heck anyone would need them for, I was smitten! Since then I rarely pass by a pose shop without trying, and ultimately purchasing something that I can’t live without! To kick it all off I’m using a pose from the Jump of Joy pose pack from Aerial Poses & Props! The pack is exclusive to the event and it contains six poses that jump for joy and includes mirrors of each. The Pose Hop is an event that will take you to the main stores of participating designers where there will be an exclusive item and an item on sale for each round of the event! This is a little bit of heaven for me and other pose addicts out there!

The sandal season is upon us and it’s the one kind of footwear that I can’t get enough of! The Cheyenne Sandals from Slipper Original is loads of fun to wear and will show off the perfect pedi! They’re SLink, Maitreya, and TMP compatible and with four areas to customize and a HUD just loaded with colours these are must haves!

The Back to Roots tattoo from Pimp My Sh!t is a new release and available at the Thrift Shop 13.0! It’s a unisex tattoo that covers feet/legs and arms/hands and comes in the tattoo layer for classic avatars and is Omega and TMP compatible for all the major mesh bodies and body parts! I’m wearing the Maitreya Lara mesh body with SLink flat feet and casual hands here! The Thrift Shop runs until May 28 with all seven newly released Pimp My Sh!t tattoos on for 50% off for the duration!

The very pretty nails are from the Spiked Romance Polish set from -{ZOZ}- and it’s available at the current round of the Mesh Body Addicts event until May 30. The set contains nine pretty colours to choose from and is compatible with SLink, Maitreya, Omega and the -{ZOZ}- mesh nails!

I’m wearing the Prayer Bead necklace and bracelet from Anachron, but I’ll give you a much closer look, and lots more information, in the next post! It’s available at the current round of GEN-Neutral!

The Kalani Bikini top in Southwestern design is from KRALUS!

The Kora hair is from Truth Hair.

The Ripped Denim Shorts are from Blueberry.
