Cobalt

… week 22 of the 52 Weeks of Color Challenge part II.

Cobalt

After spending way too much money on last week’s outfit, I knew this had to be a “from inventory only” post. And the remarkable thing is… I actually did that! Yay me!

That I didn’t have to do any shopping, was actually a good thing, because I wasn’t inworld very much this week anyway. I was enjoying the RL sunny weather!

Actually I think I’m going to enjoy a little bit more of that now…

Lemon Chiffon

… week 21 of the 52 Weeks of Color Challenge part II.

Lemon Chiffon

I always try to use items I already own, when putting together another color challenge look. This week however, I seriously splashed the cash…

I visited the faMESHed event and bought the top, the shoes and the jewellery. I bought my new Pink Fuel skin at Culture Shock. I bought my hair at Collabor88. And I bought the new customisable mesh FATEeyes at the Marketplace.

*looks at her Linden balance* Yeah, not something I should be doing every week…

Scratch

… just a quick Look of the Day.

Scratch

I was trying to put together an outfit with the stuff I bought at Culture Shock, when I remembered these Cat Scratch Tights. So I combined it all and got this look.

A short post, I know. But I’m low on energy and time, so this is it… Tadaa!

Deep Pink

… week 20 of the 52 Weeks of Color Challenge part II.

Deep Pink

This week I finally visited the Culture Shock event. And while checking out all the stores, I thought I might as well try and find something in Deep Pink. So I bought this dress at a unknown-to-me store. Afterall, you never know if you happen to discover a new favourite!

I have to say however that I didn’t. The shape of this mesh dress is not exactly ideal. It’s obviously made for extremely thin people, because I’m wearing the largest shape, but the alpha layer still had to make most of my hips and butt disappear. A bigger problem however is the way it’s rigged. I just keep popping through the mesh with the slightest movement. So I’m afraid this purchase is not a keeper…

  • Dress – Bubble Electric (litani.istmal)—>@Culture Shock
  • Shoes – G-Field (cerberus.noel)
  • Jewellery – League (nena.janus)
  • Faux fur scarf – Ohmai (anya.ohmai)
  • Pose – skin&bones (ayoko.ohanlon)

Take me to the kittens

… Playing with a tiny AV.

Take me to the Kittens

I, unsurprisingly, have a lot of cat-related items in my inventory. And when it is free, it’s even better! So when I saw this cute little cat avatar on the Free*Style blog, I just had to have it.

Me and Kulta the cat

I was already expecting a small av, but really: it’s tiny! To give you an idea of the size, I’m standing next to one of my KittyCatS. The avatar comes with a HUD that let’s you play different animations, like sitting and dancing (yes, you can make this cute little thing dance!) At the same location, you can also find a couple of cute accessories for this kitten. Think: hats and booties.

One thing I found helpful when wearing such a small avatar, is a camera HUD. This lowers your SL camera closer to the ground, so you can actually see yourself when you’re walking around inworld. I already had one of those in my inventory, but you can find a different, free,  tinycam here.

Pueblo

… week 19 of the 52 Weeks of Color Challenge part II.

Pueblo

Wow, did I have a hard time finding this particular brown! And my search wasn’t helped by the fact I was hardly online this week. The reason for that was my husband, who began this week by smashing his foot into the corner of a loose ceramic tile. And then I had to run around all week to provide him with food, drinks, books etc. Okay, he had a nasty cut in his foot, but it wasn’t like his foot would fall off if he moved one muscle! Really, why do men behave like babies when they’re sick?!

But anyway, back to this week’s shade of brown… After searching a long while, I finally settled for this look. The only recent item in it is my skin. The rest has been living in my inventory for quite a while. So don’t be surprised if some of this stuff is no longer available.
