Tangelo

… week 48 of the 52 Weeks of Color Challenge part II.

Tangelo

And this week’s color… is another orange. And no, I still do not like orange.

The first thing I found that was the right color were my shoes. They are available at the Unhinged event, which is still going. After that though, I struggled a bit. At first I wanted to pair the jacket with a black dress. But then I realized I have been wearing nothing but skirts and dresses lately. So I went with shorts this time.

I’ve survived yet another orange week!

To be or not to be

… what else should one say while holding a skull?

To be or not to be

I thought I would throw in another look made with items from the Unhinged event. Just to remind everyone who hasn’t visited yet, that they really should.

Also, if you feel more like partying for the good cause… you can! Just check the schedule here and then tp to the Unhinged party stage.

Barley Corn

Barley Corn

And for a change, I’m on time with my post! … I’ll try to make it a habit… Anyway, most of my outfit consists of stuff from my inventory. But there are also two new things in this weeks outfit.

The first is my necklace, which is one of the gatcha-items available at Unhinged. The second is my skin by LAQ. I used to think I wasn’t a fan of their skins. But after trying a demo of the new Saga skin, I changed my mind rather quickly.

Unhinged

… a festival for Eku’s head.

Unhinged

This event is pretty much what it says on the tin: a fundraiser for Eku Zhong, to help fund a critical operation to her skull. (read the full story here) The fundraiser is in the form of a gatcha festival and kicks of with lots of music provided by a score of DJs.

Now I know there has been a lot of discussion about SL fundraisers in general. Especially about people wanting proof about how the recipient spends the money.  I personally really don’t feel I need that kind of proof. I spend some money and get an item in return. It’s no different then buying any other item in SL as far as I’m concerned. Well okay, only difference might be that your shopping addiction might, for once, be a positive thing 🙂

The Unhinged event starts November 15 at 8 AM SL-time and runs until December 15.

Juniper

… week 46 of the 52 Weeks of Color Challenge part II.

Juniper

I don’t know why, but I feel like we’ve seen this color before in the challenge… or a color very much like it. Surprisingly enough though, I did manage to find something to wear in my inventory.

With this week’s color post done, I’m now going to go back to feeling low-on-energy. I’m still suffering from a cold and probably will be for some time to come. Because since my daughter started pre-school a couple of weeks ago, she’s been bringing home a fresh set of bacteria twice a week… *sneeze*

Pom Pom

… a Look of the day.

Pom Pom

I’ve switched to using the Firestorm viewer and I seem to have stopped crashing *knocks on wood*. Still wondering what I did to anger the Second Life gods, but wow I must have really pissed them off!

Anyway, with my case of crashitus cured, for now, I finally had the time to play around a bit. So I made a Look of the Day, with some of the things I bought at Fifty Linden Fridays.

Pom Pom Detail

A word of warning about the vest though: it is NOT a rigged-mesh item (as I wrongly presumed). It’s actually as stiff as a plank, just so you know.

Bittersweet

… week 45 of the 52 Weeks of Color Challenge part II.

Bittersweet

This week’s color is called Bittersweet… again, I had no idea that was a color!

I can’t say I’m very happy with the look I created. Not that there is anything particularly wrong with it. But I couldn’t play around with it as much as I would have liked. Because lately my Second Life experience has been “unpredictable” to put it politely. Trying to make a look, while thinking “quick, quick, quick before I crash again!!” well… that does suck the joy out of it a bit.

Anyway, enough whining! For this week’s look I choose one of MichaMi’s latest creations, the Daira dress. The bold pattern really appealed to me. And the right color is in there somewhere, I’m sure of it!
