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.

Puss In Boots//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

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…

New Year Meme

… for Strawberry Singh’s Monday Meme.

New Year Meme

And my blog has finally made it into the new year as well. Happy (belated) 2014 everyone!

I made this particular look while cleaning out my inventory. It is a pigsty in there and probably does take up two servers…

  1. How did you spend New Year’s Eve? As always, we spend Christmas at my hubby’s parents and New Year’s Eve at my parents. Easiest way of seeing all the family and not having either side feel left-out. Both occasions usually contain a lot of food and drink!
  2. Did you keep any new years’ resolutions? In RL I never bother. As soon as make them I forget about them. In SL: finally cleaning that inventory!
  3. What was your biggest achievement(s) of the year? I know it’s more luck then achievement, but I’m happy that the people I care about were happy and healthy this year. Me included.
  4. What was the best thing you bought? We finally got a clothes-dryer in RL! I’m so happy to not have to drape the bedding over the living room furniture to dry anymore.
    And yes, I’m easily pleased…
  5. What do you wish you’d done more of? Just enjoying the small things in life I think. Between chores and other obligations, that’s an easy thing to forget to do sometimes.
  6. What do you wish you’d done less of? In short: procrastinating. Very bad habit of mine that I really really need to do less of.
  7. What was your favorite movie you watched this year? Uhm, I hardly ever watch movies. So if I did watch a good one this year, I probably forgot!
  8. What did you do on your birthday this year? Considering it was a week-day, not much. Hubby cooked for me though 🙂
  9. Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned. Not to worry so much. Some of the things I worried about this year, really weren’t worth worrying about.
  10. What does 2014 hold for you? There are no big events planned, so as far as “happy and healthy” goes, I’m just hoping for more of the same.

Aladdin and Jasmine

… Week 8 of the SL DisneyBound Challenge.

Aladdin and Jasmine

The December holidays are always a bad blogging period for me. I’m either not at home, or I’m too stuffed with food to move. This year was no exception.

I did get a few things done in Second Life though. I sorted my inventory a bit, reworked me shape (if only it was so easy in RL) and did my DisneyBounding looks. This week it’s 2 for the price of 1: Jasmine and Aladdin.

Jasmine was easy to do, but I still don’t like my Aladdin-look. Which artist at the Disney studios decided to put both red and purple in his outfit? It still makes my eyes hurt…

Spots and Stripes

… time for a Look of the Day.

Spots and Stripes

I have, again, been making attempts to clean out my inventory. So far I have sorted a lot of stuff, but haven’t actually deleted anything. So mixed results really.

Anyway, while digging through both old and new stuff, it all came together in this LOTD. The new thing of note, are the neko stripes. They are from c( Two Cats one Cup), which is a new store, so there aren’t many items for sale yet. It’s a collaboration between Ingkeu Soonkyu of Bobtails and Sei Minuet of Lemon Tea and is located on the floor above these stores.

Panties for Luna

… a thank you post for Luna Jubilee.

PantiesforLuna1

After being our leader through two years of color challenge, we really couldn’t say goodbye without doing a surprise thank-you post! It was Eliza Quixote who got a bunch of us together for a photoshoot… in our panties… obviously. Because we all know Luna very regularly only made half an outfit for her color posts!

From left to right: Anichka Savira, me, Eliza Quixote, Rudhmellown Laguna, Laila Laperriere, Shayariel Teardrop, Nicandra Laval, Ygrey Auer and Laura18 Streeter.

I’m taking advantage of Eliza’s photo skills here, because I didn’t take any pictures myself. My SL experience has been terribly sensitive to crashing lately. And getting everyone together for the shoot and getting everyone to rezz was already quite a task, without adding a constantly crashing neko to the mix. So basically I didn’t want to risk it.
