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! πŸ˜€ 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.

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.

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.

Welcome, Friends!

Welcome, Friends!

Hi there, welcome to my happy home! Won’t you come in and make yourself at home? No? You have no time? That’s too bad!(not) That’s the thing about me, I can welcome people into my home, but no matter who they are, I’m always relieved when they decline my invitation! I think everyone knows this….I rarely have drop in visitors so I’ve got everyone trained well!

My home today is the ‘Kenwood Summer House’ from Raindale! It’s a cute little summer home available now at Cosmopolitan. With a footprint of 14×16 you’d think it’s tiny….but it really is roomy inside with it’s open floor plan. It comes with two versions, one with lights(seen here) and one without, this version has a land impact of 43 and the one sans lights has an LI of 37. The ‘welcome’ sign post comes with it, and the pack contains a blank texture for people like me who prefer to be alone! Moz Loordes was nice enough to point this out to me in his blog post, A Writer’s Summer. Moz includes an extensive tour of the house inside and out, which makes up for my one sided shot of it, which doesn’t do it justice! Thanks for the tip, Moz….I’m sure this gets the point across to any would-be visitors! You’ll noticed I dropped the ‘please’ you suggest, for a Canadian I’m not that polite, I guess! πŸ˜€ I wasn’t sure what ‘sod off’ meant, but a quick visit to the Urban Dictionary gave me a good idea! Also from Raindale in this shot is the Garden Bench and Garden Tree, both available at the Home Show 2017! The tree is HUD driven with options to change the bark and leaves along with a switch to turn the glow off/on for the leaves. The bench is loaded with 12 singles animations plus the options to read or use a phone, and there’s 9 couples animations. Available at the Raindale main store is the Meadow Grass, this is the ‘summer, soft’ version of it.

Here’s a rundown of all the other items that I’ve strewn around the yard!

Abandoned Memories Bicycle, Soy
Clothes Line w/clothes, Funky Junk
Wild Allium in pur pur, keke available at Collabor88
Primitive Birdhouse set, vintage garden hose, unrolled, ‘happy home’ sign, barn lamp all from hive

My outfit consists of the Bella Tank Top and Scrunched Sweats, both from Tres Blah. The ‘Chungha’ hair from [monso] available at ~uber~. My whole look starts with the Lilo bento mesh head from Catwa, with the Alexa skin in ‘peche’ tone from Avada! Plus the Lara mesh body from Maitreya and the flat feet from SLink.

The Making of a Man!

The Making of a Man!

I don’t have a significant other, partner, mate, or special someone! I don’t have anyone to go to give me a back rub or point out the poppy seeds in my teeth! There’s no one I can count on to leave the toilet seat up or leave the tube of toothpaste squished the wrong way! But if I did….I’d hope that he had Sam Elliot’s voice, Jake Gyllenhaal’s eyes, Daniel Craig’s butt, and Jon Bon Jovi’s generosity! Oh….and I don’t want to forget, Brad Pitt’s wallet!

So, I’m wearing the Bedazzled Babydoll from Flippant and I have no one to show it too! I’ve flaunted it at a few events around the grid and made sure to look haughty, aloof and a little bit of a bad girl! This outfit, including the shoes, panty and top is available at the current round of SWANK, which runs until March 1st!

The Red hot nail applier is also from Flippant and is the group gift for the month of February! The set contains six different designs and is SLink compatible!

anyBODY is open for business until March 1st and there you’ll find the new skin, Nina, from .::WoW Skins::.! She’s available in six tones, this is the Tan tone!

The Acadia hair from Truth Hair is a total “must have”! It’s at uber until February 23.

I used poses from oOo Studio Poses.

I stayed at home, high on top of my sky tower at Temporia Prime for these pictures!

While going through my Designer Circle folder for Round 110 I found this gem of an outfit! The Annie Dress in brown from Giulia Design has a classy vintage look with a wonderful neckline to show off some decolletage. It comes with the clutch and the fascinating fascinator that tops of this splendid look.

Glamistry is participating in Kustom9 and the Ramonda Heels are exclusive to the event! The HUD driven shoes are compatible with the SLink high feet, The Mesh Project, Belleza and the Maitreya mesh bodies. The addition of six incredible animal prints for Kustom9 is a truly wondrous thing! πŸ™‚

The Skyler hair is from KoKoLoReS and is now in the main shop after the stint at Hair Fair 2015! This is from Color Hud 1 which has thirty colours to choose from.

A new round of ~uber~ is on and after what seemed like days, I finally got in. I went specifically for the Urban Ammonite necklace from Maxi Gossamer Accessories. It’s colour change with eight colours and a choice of gold or silver for the metal. Like all MG accessories they fit perfectly with very little adjusting needed, for me at least! πŸ™‚

The Kimm V2 skin in Tan tone is from .::WoW Skins::..

Poses by Le Poppycock. Please click on the link to get the LM to the new store on the Legione sim!

I took the pictures at Tillicum Island while I enjoyed seeing the sights there.
