Going to the Movies

… for Strawberry Singh’s Second Life Movie Poster Challenge 2016.

Going to the Movies

So many blogger challenges, so little time! But as I participated in the 2013 version of this challenge, I just knew I had to do this one.

I again decided to go with a classic, the 1972 musical film Cabaret. It’s shocking how relevant the message of this musical still is, even after all these years.

I didn’t attempt to do an exact copy of the original poster. Because there seem to have been a lot of different versions over the years. But hopefully my attempt does get the overall look right.

Puss In Boots

… because I found a group gift while cleaning my inventory.

A group gift from Hucci to be precise. I found it in my “still need to unpack this stuff” folder, so I have no idea when exactly this gift was sent.

Remarkably enough I just bought a very similar pair of boots in RL. So I decided to create a look I might wear in RL as well: with skinny jeans and a long sweater.

Now if only my RL hair would look as good as my pixel-hair does…

I Was Weak…

… I couldn’t resist the latest KittyCatS collection.

I Was Weak

I really tried, honestly. But they were just to cute. Add to that some matching antennas for me to wear and well… How could I resist?

I Was Weak Details

Sorry for the blog being a bit quiet, but this winter’s viruses are still keeping me occupied. To be precise, I am feeling fine. But now the rest my household is busy emptying their stomachs, cat included. Really, the bugs floating around this season… it’s getting ridiculous by now!

I have managed to gain a new life-experience though: having a toddler puke into your cleavage. Interesting experience, I can assure you.

It’s that time again

… it’s this year’s obligatory Valentine’s look!

I didn’t go all out in pink and hearts this time, though there is a bit of both in there somewhere.

Ice Queen

… a quick Look of the Day before the holidays swallow me.

Ice Queen

I won’t be home much the coming days, so I won’t be near my pc or Second Life. I will have my tablet, but sadly that doesn’t help me on the SL front.

I basically have no idea when I’ll be able to do another blog post. So this is a very quick one, with some recent hunt-gifts! Actually, this post is so quick that I didn’t even edit this shot… so excuse the gridlines and jagged elbows. Maybe I’ll update the picture when I have the time.

Anyway, I wish everyone happy holidays. Or a happy apocalypse… either of those 🙂

Madder Lake Deep

… week 51 of the 52 Weeks of Color Challenge part II.

Madder Lake Deep

Madder Lake Deep. My first thought on that was: Who, in their right mind, would call a color that?! After consulting Wikipedia, I found it’s a traditional lake pigment, extracted from the common madder plant. Lake is in this case not a big puddle of water, but a pigment manufactured by precipitating a dye with an inert binder, or “mordant”, usually a metallic salt.

But I still think it’s a stupid name.

I didn’t have much chance to sit down and play dress-up this week. So, I went with a simple look. Reason for this was my toddler, who was suffering from an ear infection, sore throat and new back molar. Hence, she was not in the best of moods and constantly demanded attention. So that’s why I spend most of the week sitting on the floor, doing jigsaw puzzles…

Halloween

… time for pumpkins and the color orange.

Halloween

Halloween is almost upon us. And as usual, even if you do live under a rock in SL, you will have noticed this! It’s hardly a surprise though. In a world where one really can dress up as anything you can think of, Halloween has to be popular.

The amount of scary/bloody/macabre items released has been amazing. And I really wanted to combine some of it to make a really dark and creepy look of my own. Even bought some things for it. But for some reason, I got absolutely nowhere. Apparently I’m not quite bloodthirsty enough.

So I went with, what seemed to be, the most popular Plan B: pumpkins and the color orange. The dress by Somnia is one of the prizes available at the Resting Place, the skin by Frick is a dollarbie hunt gift and the necklace by Kosh is also a dollarbie. My boots are a special item by G-Field, that will only be for sale until the 31st of October. (there is also a free Halloween dress available, along with last year’s gift dress)

Halloween 2

The only slightly creepy thing in my outfit are the spiders. Though I don’t really understand why a spider would be considered scary. At least not if, like me, you live in a part of the world where there are no poisonous spiders what so ever. Besides I’ve heard it’s actually good luck to have spiders in your house… And that is also my excuse for not cleaning away the cobwebs as much as I perhaps should. 🙂
