Sparkle On...

I had been wanting this Nymph skin/ears/hooves set from Violent Seduction for a very long time so I finally remembered to buy it. My friend Kiba Tachikawa, the very creative owner of Actuate Eden has decorated his personal skybox so beautifully so I took some photos the other day when I was over to pet his Meeroos. I love the dreamy, sparkly feel of the place and I love the way these pictures came out!


Skin, Ears, Hooves, Dress: Violent Seduction
Corset: *elymode*
Eyes: Fantajecca (Almost four years old. Can't find a store, Creator gone as well.)
Hair (Heavily Modded): LOGO & Kin
Two of the Makeup Layers from Elegant Epiffany: Available on Marketplace only

Colorful Cravings

As Fall begins to chase away some of the blistering heat I have lived with all Summer, I find myself becoming more relaxed yet simultaneously stimulated. The oppression of Summer is finally lifting and I am again feeling creative and colorful in so many ways. Earlier I was browsing the "How Do I Look" blog (here) and the author had featured the most beautiful eggplant-colored skin I had ever seen, from a store called The Sugar Garden. I had never been there before so I immediately teleported myself and some friends in for a major camping session in front of the Lucky Boards. It took me hours to get the same skin, but I finally did. (I will have pictures of that skin soon but I want to get a whole look together first.) I did arrange *this* colorful look using another one of the very lovely Lucky Board skins. (Freckles added.) ~Enjoy!

Anthropomorphic Fun

Fall is here and Halloween is just around the corner, but everyone who knows me knows that I don't really need a special reason to play dress-up. Second Life has been my "Virtual Dolly Dress Up" for almost four years now and I never get tired of creating new looks and finding new things. Here are two animal/human mixed avatars I have been enjoying lately in my Second Life. The Bunny was created piecemeal from many outfits and avatar bits, with homemade eyes and teeth and a lot of modding as well as tattoo layers, etc.
(Please forgive my amateur Photoshop skills!)

The Bird is pretty much straight out of the box, except I substituted my own shape, chose the feather colors and changed the eye color. I scoured my inventory to find a nice outfit for the Bird, but honestly, she just looked better naked! I just adore these colors so much!

+ I have about five Faun looks saved as well, so stay tuned for pics of those!


(On The Bunny)

Original Bunny Shape and Skin from Rotten Toe. (I severely modded the shape as well as the skin with makeup layers, freckles, tattoos, etc, but it's cute to begin with. This store also has great creepy/carny clothes, skins, hair and quality group gifts. A longtime favorite store of mine since I started SL!)

The outfit is a mix of clothes from Little Heaven, (which, unfortunately I cannot seem to find a store for anymore,) Heartsick, (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Farley/28/220/21, (but the outfit is no longer there,) and a belt made by Tahani Petrov.

AnthroXtasy: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Elliquiy/225/130/43 (This avatar is called "Burd" and comes in many different colors in male and female versions. Arm, tail feathers and eye color is changeable. Comes with PG and Mature skin options. They have a huge selection of other animals from many species. I was eyeballing their rabbits and otters as well as many others! Great store.)
