Melon

…week 39 of Luna Jubilee’s 52 Weeks of Color Challenge.melon
It’s the summer holiday for me in RL (you could mistake it for the autumn holiday, with all the rain, but nevermind that!) And I haven’t been home much. So this week I took it a bit easy.

It was a bit tricky to find the right color in my inventory, and I didn’t get it quite right, but as soon as I found this skirt I was done. Because I have worn this particular ensemble many times before already.

The only new thing is my hair, which is a group gift by Dura. It comes both in black and strawberry blonde.

A bit of Boho

…with this maxi dress by Vive9.Vive9

It’s silly perhaps, but before this week I had only bought Vive9 items at events like Hair Fair. So when I visited the shop looking for the free gift for The Seasons Hunt, I actually ended up spending money. There were a lot of nice clothes in the store, what can I say?

I bought the dress for this week’s color challenge, but I admit it’s a pretty lame excuse. It’s not melon colored, even if you squint really hard. I do have to add that this dress, as it has sculpted parts, is very sensitive to being messed up by your AO. It comes with an alpha layer to hide your legs, but I just ended up with my  disembodied feet standing next to the dress. Not a good look.

Talking of feet. The toes you can just see under the dress are a group gift from COCO (group is free to join). They are sculpted bare feet and come with a resize/recolour HUD. I found them very difficult to adjust seamlessly to your legs. But if all you’re showing is the toes, they work just fine.

  • Hair and dress – Vive9 (sanya.bilavio)
  • Feet – COCO (cocoro.lemon)
  • Jewelry – League (nena.janus)
  • Skin – Pink Fuel (mochi.milena)

  • Neko Ears – OTCR (anisa.naumova)
  • Neko tail – How Vexing! (sei.minuet)

Patriarch

…week 38 of Luna Jubilee’s 52 Weeks of Color Challenge.Patriarch

This week’s color turned out to be an easy one. I don’t particularly love this color, but I had a lot of it in my inventory. Not sure how that happened really…

All the items I’m wearing have been gathering dust in my inventory for some time. So where, how and why I got some of the items is a bit of a blur. Particularly my hair, no idea how I got that. It was most likely a group gift, since I can’t imagine buying a hairdo in this color.

Yes, sometimes a huge inventory does come in handy. Okay, mostly it’s frustrating, but sometimes it’s handy.

  • Hair – Clawtooth (bubbles.clawtooth)
  • Skin – Pink Fuel (mochi.milena)
  • Eyes – Urban Dare (craven.theas)
  • Neko Ears – OTCR (anisa.naumova)
  • Neko tail – How Vexing! (sei.minuet)
  • Corset – Frick (fricka.morgath)
  • Skirt – Sassy Kitty Designs (kinu.mayako)
  • Socks – Pididdle (brutus.martinek)
  • Shoes – Ducknipple (beanster.potato)
  • Necklace – Eat Rice! (ellie.celt)
  • Bracelets – Sari’s (sari.telling)

I’m foxy

…because today, this neko is a kitsune.

Kitsune

If you like hybrid avatars in Second Life, you will certainly like this gift from [PETRICHOR]. It’s part of the Waffle Fox hunt and it comes with a lot of options.

The set contains 2 styles of fox ears, a fox tail on 3 different attachment points (if you have ever worn a tail in SL you know how handy this is), a skin with fox markings in 3 different skin shades, matching eyes, a shape (which I didn’t wear in the picture) and two gestures.

The Waffle Fox hunt runs untill 15th of august and you have to look for a waffle. Be careful though as there are decoy waffles about!

  • Fox avatar – Petrichor (unsightly)
  • Hair – Magika (sabina.gully)
  • Bodysuit – G Field (cerberus.noel)
  • Shoes – Heart & Sole (bijoux.lefavre)

Lemon

…week 37 of Luna Jubilee’s 52 Weeks of Color Challenge.

Lemon

All the shades of yellow we’ve had in this challenge so far, have had one thing in common: I’ve struggled with them. And lemon was no exception.

I was so desperate that this time I even turned to the SL marketplace to find the right colour. And that says alot, because I hate shopping there. In the end I found something and even made a picture of it. But I was very unhappy with the results.

Then I heard about this new monthly event, called My Second Wardrobe. I decided to visit and it made me very happy, because… they had something in lemon yellow! And a lot of other cool stuff, that made me happy too.

  • Hair – Magika (sabina.gully)
  • Hairbase – Tiny Bird (autumn.hykova)
  • Skin – Pink Fuel (mochi.milena)
  • Eyes – Urban Dare (craven.theas)

  • Shoes – Nardcotix (nardya.rousselot)

I can see clearly now

…because I have a new pair of glasses!

11-7-2011

I actually got myself a new pair of glasses in RL (the world was getting a bit blurry). I’d never thought of wearing glasses or sunglasses in SL. But now i was inspired to give it a go.

I went to the first optician I could find and ended up at Role Optic. I soon realised that I didn’t need to look any further. Not only was there a goodiebag with three basic pairs of glasses, they were also part of the Sand & Sun Hunt. The glasses I’m wearing in the picture is the hunt prize: a scripted pair of sunglasses. You can change the colour of the frame and also the transparency of the glasses. So if you don’t want sunglasses, you can change that.

The Sand & Sun Hunt runs untill 20th of july and the hint is: Bucket & The City.

  • Hair – !SYDS! (serenite.stransky)
  • Hairbase – Tiny Bird (autumn.hykova)

  • Shoes – The Dressing Room gift at TDR and TDR Blue

Celadon

…week 36 of Luna Jubilee’s 52 Weeks of Color Challenge.

Celadon
When I first read the word celadon, I immediately thought of a dinosaur. I could just imagine it: The mighty celadon, stalking the cretaceous landscape…But no, apparently it’s a kind of pale green.

I thought this would be an easy week. I like green and have alot of different shades of it in my inventory. But, as it turned out, not THIS kind of green.

Being low on lindens and time, I decided to go with this dress by JANE. It’s not a perfect celadon green, but it will have to do. Matched with some bits and bobs from my inventory, I ended up looking quite acceptable. If I do say so myself.
