Fruit Loops and Fun

I was feeling extra quirky today. Nothing in my wardrobe was hitting my mood so, I decided to check out the exchange and work somethin' out. While flipping through the abundance of slutty things SL designers seem to put out en masse... nothing was really jumping out at me, UNTIL THIS!

Frop! 's Apron Dress in Chaos. Yepper - CHAOS. It was PERFECT!

So then I thought, omuhgosh, I can wear the new Truth group Holiday gifty- Drake, which I'm pretty sure was supposed to be for guys but... I think I look cute as 1980's Madonna in Who's that Girl - cute.

And then of course, I had to pair it with some epic kicks, so I grabbed my League High tops and color changed them to match the green in the outfit.

Can you tell I'm excited about all this? Yes. It's... erm... bright... and yes, it's not exactly that chic look all the fashion avi's are jumping all over like rats to cheese... BUT, it's different, fun, and funky. Which is exactly what I was trying to achieve.

Did I miss the mark? Only time will tell....

Oh, Did I mention the skin is LAQ's Holiday group gift too? It's the Vilda Christmas gift in peach. It's really pretty and I LOVE the look it gives on my shape. Rather posh :D

My Deer Wants to Party All The Time, Party Allll the Tiiiiiiiime!

Reporting live from Lightening Video...

This is Winter News and I'm your roving reporter.  The mood at today's scene is both disturbing and confusing.  How these three reindeer managed to take such a downturn so quickly has baffled both staff and customers alike!  But let's recap how I happened upon this scene of disarray that has left one deer passed out, another caught with his snout in the Christmas stocking and another holding gifts and bows hostage...

As the Christmas season winds down, some are slowly re-emerging onto the grid to celebrate the holiday season with their online loved ones.  Knowing my special someone had spent a long day at work on Christmas Day of all days, I thought I'd surprise him with a movie classic from the 80's called "Santa Claus: The Movie".  If you've never seen this movie, you simply MUST!  John Lithgow as a bad dude, Dudley Moore as a rogue elf and New Edition singing the in the background...WHAT??? maybe I'm one of the five people that actually saw this movie...all the more reason to find it and share it with someone special (read: torture them with my nostalgia). But I digress...I slipped into my spiffy new holiday boots (a holiday release from Bax Boots), my free gift dress from Fishy Strawberry (with an awesome bow) and headed out to find my movie!

I went to every movie place I could think of inworld to find it (Shaft, XL Movies, Millions to name a few) deal. Then I went to my tried and true go-to place: Lightening Video.  I mean surely they had to have it, right? Upon teleporting in, I turned around to gain my bearings and of course...rez...only to find a trio of reindeer got into the egg nog just a little too much.  Meet: Dasher, Dancer and Prancer aka the party animals of the Reindeer 8, an outfit of deer commissioned by none other than Saint Nick to help deliver presents to all the good little boy and girl avatars of Second Life.

L-R: Vixen, Donder and Blitzen of the Reindeer 8
As I slowly approached these three deer, the smell of egg nog, peppermint and a very sweet smelling substance emitted from the area.  The decorations that should have been on the tree...somehow had found their way onto the culprits of this lively scene.  Donder was passed out on some of the gifts, a poor bagged satchel quivering in terror underneath him;  Vixen appeared to be trying to eat some of the evidence and Blitzen... I ... I simply have no words...

As I approached the scene, Vixen looked quite skittish, so I interviewed her first...

Me:  Vixen, what...happened?  Was the stress too much? Did you guys make a pit stop?  What has made you turn from such a pleasant crew to partying so hard that you've caused this much damage on a poor, unsuspecting store??
Vixen: *chews* ughmph *gnaws* mmm *swallows*  lookah hur woman...YOU try luggin' that red and white dude and all his stuff around...shooo sometimes a deer just need ta unwind! Now back it steppin' on mah oregano laced fruitcake!
Me: Um...Vixen... that's YOUR hoof in the fruitcake, not my foot...
Vixen:  Whaaaaaaaaaatever! Back it up! (some nerve! O.O)

I tried to interview Donder, but he was still out cold.  Near him, I found his drug of choice (see insert).  I tried to get a clear answer out of Blitzen, but um...the green bow on his butt was all that was needed.It would appear that the cause for all this trouble was narrowed to some laced fruitcake (not oregano as Vixen has tried to lead us to believe), some tainted cookies (seen by Donder) and some spiked candy canes.  Moving on...

I never did manage to find my favorite Christmas Movie to share, but I did pick up "Love Actually" (one of my personal all-time favorites) which not only makes for a GREAT Christmas movie, but also Valentine's day as well. Let's hope he likes it as well *giggles*

This is your roving reporter...signing off!

Kilo Meets and Stares at ... Kim

Pint-sized, spunky, a little tomboyish. Introducing...

Kim by ~!Stare!~

So I got a message from Talah Magic and a folder (called "Kim for Bloggers") with this exquisite little shape in it with style card and notes about how the creator viewed one of her newest creations. The shape is designed to go with an Asian skin, the frame, a hopeful intent to bring her perception of a young asian female. I'm not sure where, but she also sent out a notice or message (either in her group, on her blog or on her facebook...yes..Stare is EVERYWHERE) stating she was looking for customers (or aspiring photogs) to create ads for her shapes. And if she likes them, she'll even use them in the store.  So I figured, "why not? Let's give it a go!"

I loved this shape from the first time I put it on.  While she's a little boxy and her body's features quite petite, I loved that someone is creating smaller avatars with more true to real life heights and sizes out there for those residents that prefer to not be Glamazing Amazons (yes, Glamazing is a word...I know because I just thought it up :P).  Anyway...back to Kim!  I had a little bit of trouble shooting her, because well...I'm still a beginner in photoshop and still learning light and angles for shooting.

I wanted to give Kim an up-to-date, kick ya in the pants but still look pretty while doing it look, so I sat on my parcel for a while trying to think of what I had that was attidudinal, but cute (yay more Kilo word creations :P). While rummaging through my uber large inventory (yeah...we won't talk's huge), I came across an outfit from Delirium I totally forgot I had and slipped it on and thought .... oooh yeah...that's what I'm talking about! After putting it on, I thought of 99 Elephants, a store that is all about the mohawk and not the hard, stab you in the eye types of hawks one usually sees affiliated with the style. Remembering I had Docs, I tossed em on, updated the holes and laces to pink and voila!  Kim...short, spunky, fun-sized, attitudinal AND cute.  The two shots above are my attempts at making ad shots for it.  Hope Talah likes them! Toodles gang!

I was putsing about on Facebook today when I stumbled across a post from Poulet of Purple Moon Clothiers.... and OMG am I glad I did. She has released a limited time, limited quantity set of gowns like no other. FOUR fabulous gowns. Today I'm going to show you my favorite of the bunch, blossom.

With it's elegant snowflake details in the lace and sheer bodice to it's form flattering skirt, I just can't imagine a holiday without this dress. It's beauty is simplistic and sexy. The snowflake enlarged collar is just a perfect edition to this gown.

If you too want a spectacular holiday gown that you're not going to see all over the grid due to it's limited quantity, I suggest you do as I've done, and visit Purple Moon ASAP!


PS: I'm stupid. No srsly, that line on the bodice is my fault, I didn't realize when I shot the pictures that I had on BOTH pants and underwear glitch layers.. so uhm, don't wear both or that weird line will happen *laughs* ENJOY!
