So last week my internetz were totally messed up. I couldn't do ANYTHING... well, actually, it was worse than just not being able to log on. Ohhh yah... see, I could actually get online for a little bit. Email, music, youtube, Second Life; yah I could open the pages and do whatever and then with no warning at all POOF! the whole thing just stopped. Ugh.
See, if I just couldn't get online that would be one thing, but noooo, the internet fairies weren't happy with just leaving me stranded on some offline island. Nope, they had to tease me with the idea that everything was just FINE and then ZAP they'd sprinkle some of that techno fairy dust and bzzzt! pop! zappo! (sound effects are my own). Grrr...
Everything got fixed, of course, I know there's probably some techy description of the problem but honestly, I like the idea of techno sprites better... and this is what I'd imagine they'd look like.
Oh, can you say 'perfect timing?' Look what Kallisti Burns of Discord Designs left for me this morning! Very very cool... and of course some techno dreads are exactly what those little magical creatures living in my machine are wearing! Seriously tho, these are really fun and creative offerings from one of my favorite prim sorceresses in SL.
Discord Designs has a LOT of hair styles to choose from by the way, and is one of the few hair designers to have a huge selection of dreads and braided styles BEFORE this whole Avatar thing started. Definitely worth your time to explore her shop!
Do you like a little pain with your fashion? Hmmmm?
Well, it's sort of inevitable actually... Fashion and pain have gone together since, well, I don't really know, but there's a LOT of really uncomfortable looking stuff drawn on the walls of the ancient pyramids of Egypt and I'm sure that somewhere in time there was some frustrated cavegirl complaining about how her sabertooth jumper just... well, itched something crazy.
It's still all about that choice though isn't it? I've got some heels that just ugh hurt horribly but mmmm they're so cute. That's how it works I guess. It's that sexy "ouch" that cute pain... and what's this? Oh! this is something new from Miu! Now THIS is really sexy, this new pierced corset.
The details are just really well done, especially in the ribbon that laces through the nicely textured steel hoops. It comes with two options, one with a shadow and one without, and has a menu driven color changer so you can customize to your hearts desire. Ummm... 16 color options I think?
I've got some other cute Miu looks in my inventory too, mostly cute clubby dresses, but there's a lot of denim and other stuff there too (although I haven't really checked out the denim yet... you should just SEE my to do list... ugh). It's definitely a shop worth checking out tho', and I'll be keeping my eye on it too.
See, what happens is THIS: some holiday comes around like, well... let's say Valentine's Day and I'm just doing whatever and maybe I feel like I want to do a blog post. Happens... but then I remember VALENTINE'S DAY is coming up or even ST. PATRICK'S DAY and I stop myself and think.." should I do a THEMED POST?" hmmm... then I just sort of go back and forth.
ooo don't get me wrong... I mean, I've DONE them... there's the odd Merry XMas or Halloween post that goes up. I have nothing AGAINST them at all actually, it has to do more with the whole wanting to write something but having no real idea what to write and at the same time NOT wanting to be FORCED to write about something just because there's some holiday coming up. Basically, I'd rather stare stupidly at a blank computer screen than be given an assignment...
So what's REALLY cool is when I find myself WANTING to write something and get the chance to talk to Vasha Martinek, co-owner of DV8 Designs. Have you seen her new Deathrock Collars? Very cute. Awesome, actually, very simple yet gorgeous primwork, but with many options as far as textures, glow settings, and colors (in the Velvet texture only). There's a few styles too: Iron Trifecta (shown), Cuffed, and Candy.
Not to mention the total fangirl moment I even chatting with Vasha in the first place. Have you seen DV8? Please say yes... even if you just say it to get me off your back and then secretly you're actually planning on stopping by DV8 first chance you get. Bad, yes, because you're LYING to me (what did I ever do to you?) but GOOD because maybe you'll just totally fall in love with the pure goth clockwork craziness that IS DV8. Seriously, the store is full of glowy, punky, dark gorgeous hairs and accessories hanging temptingly from the walls.
So, whew! So happy to share... and I didn't even have to mention the 500 lbs Leprachaun in the room.
So I think this was supposed to be a post-Valentine's Day umm... post.
I have to start by saying this isn't really a Lady Gaga post at all... might have tricked ya with the 'Bad Romance' title.
Nope, this is a post about t-shirts. Not just ANY t-shirts actually, I mean, these are Gauze t-shirts. Do you wear them? Love them? If no, please exit the call. This isn't for you fashionista glitterati divas. Nope, just a t-shirt post. Casual, comfy... oh, and you know how I mentioned Gauze? Wellll, that means they're from designer Yukio Ida. YES one of my faves and YES a designer and artist with an eye for those little details we all love so much in our Second Life looks. It's the creases, the little folds in the cotton... it's the comfy fit and the long cut (what, no midriff? Awesome).
Just because it's simple doesn't mean it can't be well made, and I think Yuki proves that point here. Oh wow, a post with a point!
Seriously tho', these are really nice... and pretty appropriate for those days when you don't necessarily need to get all crazy dressed up like... Lady Gaga I guess.
I've got three, there may be more soon I hope. Definitely looking forward to seeing more anyway. I'll have to stop using visual kei references about Yuki's work tho I guess. Punky? Oooo, I like where this is going.
