Profile Perv'n

Ha……I love reading profiles! Just so you know, if you see me somewhere….I’m probably reading your profile as you’re looking at me. I can’t resist, there’s so much entertainment in it, and some very creative people out there. I have to admit mine needs some work, I’ve never put much in it, but I have to change that. There are lots of profiles with no information at all in them, then there’s the all-business profiles. There’s the ‘I pledge my love to you’ picks and the links to te persons favourite sims and stores! I do read the all-business links, because I’ve found some amazing places that way, so please share those kinds of things in you profile. The ‘pledge my love to you’ picks don’t do much for me, they’re usually over mushy and I’m just not into that. I don’t think anyone has one of those for me in their profile, so I’m happy about that. But, I do show up in my sister, Gillian Galicia‘s, profile! A couple of times! The great sister that she is added me to her picks back in 2012 when I was a noob, picture and all. Then, the other day she thought our conversation deserved saving, so there I am again! But this time, when I’m all meshed up and looking good…she doesn’t add a picture of me to it! WTF, sista? So, I’m going to see what dated pic from 2012 I can come up with and I’ll jot down a few lines about our escapades in Second Life, she has managed to capture a couple of my more questionable conversation topics in her profile, so I say ‘tit for tat’, wonderful Sis o’mine!

I look a little anguished in the picture, and I didn’t set out to do that, it just kind of happened. I’ve been struggling with a downer of a mood for a few days and I guess it’s showing! But, I’m wearing the super good looking ‘Jacket Shirt Set’ that’s available at the fame femme main store. The jacket comes in 10 colours and can be worn with or without the top. The top’s HUD driven with 6 colours and the cuffs and part of the hood are also colour change with 3 options. It’s exclusively for the Maitreya mesh body, has wonderful detailing and with spring officially starting tomorrow, jacket weather is always a possibility.

The ‘DWL Classic Jeans’ from Blueberry are one of my all time faves.

The MAYU hair is from Argrace.

My look all starts with the ‘Raine’ skin in ‘miel’ tone from Avada, on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya. I’m using the ‘Closed Eyes’ appliers for the Catwa heads from Izzie’s here.

You can’t really see it in detail, but the ‘Beetle Pearl Choker’ in gold is from Burial.

I was out pose shopping the other day and came across Korper Poses! I found a few packs that will easily suit my needs and they were very reasonably priced. This is from the ‘Leaning Bento’ pack of poses, which contains 6 poses with pose balls included.

I’m at Tralala’s Diner here, perched high atop the ruins!

Second Life Problems

Oh is my face red!! Of all the things that can go wrong in Second Life, typing a message in the wrong box is one of the worst, in my opinion! I’ve received random messages from people that make no sense at all, and some of them have been of a sexual nature, but luckily my faux pas isn’t that bad! It was bad enough though! A couple days ago I was accused of ‘blowing smoke up someone’s a**’! It was said in local chat and in front of lots of people and I got a good chuckle out of it! So fast forward a day, and last night I remember what was said and want to dispute my motives! Well, here’s where it all goes sideways! There are only two people on my friends list in-world and of the two, I happen to start an IM conversation with the wrong one! And I say, “You know I really wasn’t trying to blow smoke up your a**!’. It makes perfect sense to me, but for anyone not privy to what brought that comment on, it sounds kind of strange, if not a little kinky! After I hit ‘send’ I see my mistake and I’m sure my eyes got big and I blushed……then hurriedly told the person that it was meant for someone else and to please just ignore that comment and carry on with your day! Not to be daunted, I then retyped the message and sent it to the right person, because the epic failure of sending it to the wrong person wasn’t going to stop me! It all turned out OK, the only thing hurt was my ego, but I carry on and have learned a good lesson. Will it happen again? Yea, probably, but that’s ok…….luckily I can laugh at myself as easily as I laugh at others!

I’m so sorry for featuring a rear view of myself , yet again! Please..just know that I do it solely for my designers and take no joy in it! 😀 LEGAL INSANITY has released a new outfit and it was begging to be shown from the back. The ‘Karina Leggings & Top’ are a cute little ensemble that are a little on the snug side, but I’m sure no one’s complaining! They’re both exclusive for the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya and both HUD driven. The top comes in 6 colours with the stings and top colour change independently and the leggings come in the same six colours, with the fatpack including 4 exclusive denim colours! They’re available at the March round of Collabor88, which runs until April 6.

The ‘G1020’ hair from tram has turned into one of my all time faves.

My look all starts with the ‘Raine’ skin in ‘miel’ tone from Avada on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

This is the #83 pose from MILA.

I came across this abandoned swimming pool at Tralala’s Diner! I continue to find wonderful little treasures on the sim!

Right Turn

Inside always trying to get back inside
But it’s so hard to penetrate pig-thick skin
I’m ’bout as low as I can get
I’d leave but I can’t forget
Still I wonder why it ain’t right, mmm it ain’t right, oooh
Ain’t right, mmm it ain’t right, yeah
‘Bout as low as she can get
She’ll leave me but she won’t forget
And she wonders why she ain’t right, she ain’t right
Ain’t right, she ain’t right
Now we’re as low as we can get
Can’t leave and can’t forget
We ain’t right, we ain’t right
Not right, we ain’t right
Well it’s hard to believe that somebody tricked you
when you can see you were only high
It’s all up to you so you gamble
flat on your face and into the fire

Right Turn‘ ~Alice in Chains with Chris Cornell~

I love Layne Staley and Chris Cornell’s voices together, so powerful.

So, I’ve been looking at this picture for awhile now, and I’ve been hesitant to use it. I even went to Mother Road to take more pictures of this outfit because of my indecision on using this one. The issue I’m having is that it’s another shot of my butt a la Liz Winterstorm! I don’t want to have all my pictures look the same or have anyone get sick of seeing this side of me. It’s just that whenever I’m planning on featuring LEGAL INSANITY they make everything to really showcase the rear view! So, please blame Datrip Blackbart, the creator for LEGAL INSANITY, it’s because of him you have to see my a** so much! 😛 I’ll try to find a different angle for my next picture……but no promises!

So, I’ll tell you about the ‘Luna Bodysuit’ that I’m wearing here! This round of Frou Frou is just about over, so you only have a couple more days to get this there. After that you can look for it at the LEGAL INSANITY main store. It’s exclusively for the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya and comes in 6 colours. The fatpack includes 3 exclusive metal colours, I’m wearing the bronze here! I want to add that the front of it has cute little patches over the nipple area with neat saying and designs. You can’t see it here, but mine are saying ‘NOPE’! 😀 The fatpack also offers 3 areas to customize. Frou Frou runs until March 8.

The ‘KALISKA’ boots from **Utopia@Design** have become my favourite thigh highs! They fit the SLink, Belleza, and Maitreya mesh bodies and have tons of options. And the texturing is simply stunning!

I’m wearing a long hair here, which rarely happens, but I was told I need to change it up a bit….so here it is! It’s the ‘Ginerva’ hair from Truth Hair and it was the November VIP group gift.

The rest of my look is the ‘Raine’ skin in ‘miel’ tone from Avada on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

I’m using a pose from the ‘Detached’ set of poses from FOXCITY.

And for this picture I’m at the diner at Tralala’s Diner! I was warned several times to ‘DON’T EAT THE MEAT HERE’,’COVER YOUR EYES’, and to ‘TAKE SHELTER’! I didn’t eat the meat there, because it just didn’t look safe, and I didn’t get my eyes covered, but I’m in a bit of shelter, at least until those dogs decide to come in here and get me!

Beaten Down

If I gave you the truth, would it keep you alive?
Though I’m closer to wrong
I’m no further from right
And now I’m convinced on the inside that something’s wrong with me
Convinced on the inside, you’re so much more than me, yeah
No there’s nothing you say that can salvage the lie
But I’m trying to keep my intentions disguised
And now I’m deprived of my conscience and something’s got to give
Deprived of my conscience
This all belongs to me, yeah

I’m beaten down again, I belong to them
Beaten down again, I’ve failed you
I’m weaker now my friend, I belong to them
Beaten down again, I’ve failed you

The deception you show is your own parasite
Just a word of advice you can heed if you like
And now I’m convinced on the inside that something’s wrong with me
Convinced on the inside you’re so much more than me, yeah

I’m beaten down again, I belong to them
Beaten down again, I’ve failed you
I’m weaker now my friend, I belong to them
Beaten down again, I’ve failed you

I’m beaten down again, I belong to them
Beaten down again, I’ve failed you
I’m weaker now my friend, I belong to them
Beaten down again, I’ve failed you

Truth‘ ~Seether~

fame femme has released the gorgeous and extremely comfortable ‘Milana’ dress for the February round of N21. The simple lines all lead the eye to the knotted hemline that allows a peak of the thigh. This is the ‘nutmeg’ version, one of the twelve colours available. N21 runs until March 12.

I opted for boots to go with the dress, and the ‘KALISKA’ boots from UTOPIA are perfect! As my sisters said, ‘if you look up supple in the dictionary, these boots would be pictured’. They’re gorgeous!

The hair is ‘Boys & Girls 76’ from DURA Hair.

My look, as always, starts with the ‘Raine ‘ skin in ‘miel’ tone from Avada on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

The pose is 67 from .MILA..

I’m at Tralala’s Diner for this shot! I just love it there, so much to see!

Dammit Jim.......I'm a Blogger, Not a.......

………..oh, you’re not saying I’m anything but a blogger, Jim? Good good, because you know I’m not a doctor! Well, the term blogger is a very general term, and what does being a blogger really define someone as? Well, anyone who expresses themselves in some form online is a blogger, in my mind. Whether it’s writing or photographs or anything that you want to show to your readers. It’s all blogging. I can only speak of blogging in terms of Second Life, so my form of blogging is showing off virtual fashion and poses, and sometimes decor or buildings, from some of my favourite designers. It all starts with choosing something to focus on in the photo, usually it’s fashion or a pose, sometimes home decor or buildings. Then there are times that I just want to take a picture that shows a little bit of myself, focusing on lighting and mood. So I put together an outfit and choose a pose, then it’s finding a location to take a picture at. I love finding new sims or new areas of sims I’ve been to, and then to see these places in different lighting is one of the things I’m OCD about. Just one more windlight, always one more, to see if there’s a better one. Needless to say, my picture taking does consume a bit of time with me trying so many! I then work on camera angle, trying to get the best vantage point to make everything look it’s best. At this point I want to add that, like anyone else, not all days go well. Some days the technical part of it isn’t working for me and Second Life is being it’s glitchy self, some days I’m just not feeling it, and this makes every picture different, with some being better than others. It’s just life…..I love it when it all goes easy and I get a good one, but it’s OK if I have to work a bit at it, and redo the shot…again and again and again. Like I did for this one. I had a shot I really liked, but then I noticed something that didn’t sit right with me. And when that happens, I can’t see anything but that…so back to Tralala’s Diner I went , recreated everything like I had it, and took new pics. It’s not the first time it’s happened, won’t be the last…I try to look closely at the image to check for, what I call, flaws. You know….the finger stuck in the hip, the hair through the neck, or the shoes below ground level. Since I don’t use Photoshop, I have to make it as close to flawless as I can in-world, which isn’t always easy. After I’ve got a picture, I then think of what I want to say in the post. Some days I have lots of things to say….and then there’s the days all you get is song lyrics or a poem. But, even though I’m not using my own words to say something, my choice of lyrics or poem are speaking for me. Once I have it all done, then there’s nothing left to do but post it, and it’s links to my various social media accounts, telling all of my faithful, and much appreciated, followers that I have something new for them to peruse!

I’m wearing the ‘Leather Jacket and Dress’ from fame femme and it’s a beaut! I like that word, ‘beaut’! 🙂 Anyway, the jacket comes in 10 colours and the dress is HUD driven with 10 colours to choose from, and it’s fitted for the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

This pose is from Bauhaus Movement and it’s part of the huuuuge ‘Hearts Burst Into Fire’ fatpack available now at The Liaison Collaborative. You can also purchase any of the poses individually.

The ‘Boys & Girls 70’ hair with headband is from DURA Hair.

My skin, although altered with the windlight, is ‘Raine’ in ‘miel’ tone from Avada. I’ve added a bit of shadow from the ‘Satin Shadow Set’ from Buzzeri. And, it all starts with the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.
