I think I’m ready to go…

And you say I'm never ready...

If you want me to stop playing model and finish getting ready, maybe you should stop taking my picture!

Have you checked out the Snowflake Experience yet?

If not, you should definitely go check it out.  If you have, then you should go back again – and not just because I said so!  The creators involved have provided great items – some exclusive, some new, some free, and some that split the proceeds with Toys for Tots. Many of the Toys for Tots items are exclusive, so to get them you’ll have to get to The Snowflake Experience before it closes (it closes tomorrow, December 23rd).

There are more pictures on my Flickr (and bigger sizes so you can see the details better), and I’m sure I’ll post more here too.  Don’t forget to stop by before tomorrow!

For the Love of… Ice?

Edit: Sorry about the pictures problem. I reuploaded to Flickr, so they should be visible now.

I’m not the biggest fan of ice (that could have something to do with last Winter’s blizzard), but the For the Love of group is putting on Ice Fest right now, that runs until December 26th (so, it runs all day Christmas, but if you don’t get there by then… well, just get there by then).  Most (if not all) of our favorite designers from the For the Love of Science/Fall hunts are included, and have great holiday themed (or Winter colored) items available.

For those of us with more informal holiday gatherings to attend (or just to have something to wear shopping), there are t-shirts that go great with jeans.

Ice Fest - BabyCakes Ice Fest - BabyCakes Ice Fest - it's cake

For those nights that are nice and warm already (I’ve always wanted to spend Christmas in Australia, just as an aside here), there are these tops from KidAsia. They’re actually undershirts, but I think they’re more than cute enough to wear on their own.

Check out Ice Fest before it melts… wow, sorry about that, it was super cheesy.

Last day for the diamond to be yours…

While these past several weeks have pretty much laughed at any plans I might have ever had to actually get anything done, I did have a chance to check out several of the great gifts available in the Diamond is Mine Hunt. Here are just a couple of my favorites:

DIMH - Bubblez and n-creation DIMH - Sassy! DIMH - Apple May Designs

No, the skirt in the first picture doesn’t have holes in it – it has one of the best uses of layers and glow I’ve seen in a while – when it moves, it’s like there are stars in your skirt… in a good way, not in the gee, wouldn’t that be uncomfortable to have actual stars in your skirt kind of way.  You’ll want to click on the pictures to get to my Flickr to see the detail on the bracelet and earrings. There’s also a few more pics there of the stuff you can find.

Halloween at the Plastik!!

When I joined Second Life last year, it was the creativity that I saw in the Fall that made me stay. So many incredible creators that are so vastly different, which gives all of us consumers just that many more ways we can choose to express ourselves as well. Personally, I’m a consumer because I have no talent for creation, but I like to put things together and play around with what other people do. Nothing is limited. Sure, the season you are in probably influences your choices (if you’re into fashion), but dressing up or trying something different isn’t limited to fancy dress parties or any particular day of the year. My next couple of posts are going to show off some of the different things that I have found recently, (yes, that is the point of this blog, so I am being redundant) but fair warning – some of them are likely to be Halloween related for right now. Well, the special items that are out and available for Halloween provided I get to posting in time. (I’m hoping to get more than one done a day.) Then, back to “look at all the cool stuff I found today!”

Anyone who has checked out this blog knows that I’m a HUGE fan of Aikea Rieko, the designer behind the Plastik. So, when I saw her Halloween collection, I knew I had to get my sick self off the couch and in front of a computer (and spend several days making sure I get decent pictures)! Here are some of what she created for 2010 – I’ve barely scratched the surface here, but… there are more pics of her awesome stuff on my Flickr. (You’ll also find full body pics of the skins so you can see the awesome bones/muscles and spiderweb designs.)

Road Trip!

I’m pretty good at getting myself to style an outfit and take pictures, but I’m SO not good at getting those pictures into a blog post!  However, I have some really cool stuff to show you – now would be the time to pay attention…

The Plastik is having a Road Trip sale to help pay for gas while Aikea Rieko takes off around the US to check out what there is out there.  To say I’m jealous can be qualified as the understatement of the year, but let’s set that aside and just say that I hope she has a wonderful time!!! Here are just a few things you can find from the sale:

Boho Prayer - Road Tripping Shredder - Road Trip! Valerian - Road Tripping Road Trips Need Octane
I love the pose from dfo! in the second pic. I crack up every time I look at it.

Right, so, like I said before – the sale is to pay for gas, and because she’s super awesomely creative and can read my mind when I need more Plastik in my life, there’s a sale on a ton of items (79) right in front at the main landing point for Plastik.  Go check it out, and if you want to see some of the other fantastic things on sale – there are more pics on my Flickr.

Where did August go?

No, seriously… where did it go?  Because the last time I checked, it had just started and I was all ready to have a somewhat relaxing month – and then I woke up and remembered I still had to go to work.  Man, if I didn’t have bills… or a serious addiction to really cool SL stuff…

Anyway, since today is the last day of August, it’s the last day of the Platinum Hunt – you know, the one I told you about before?  And totally meant to write more about, but August ran past me like a toddler with with a contraband cookie. Right, so, since it’s the last day of the hunt, I thought I’d taunt show you some (more) of the goodies that you can pick up for 10L each until the end of the day today (in case you haven’t already).

Ha! Platinum Platinum Acid & Mala
The hunt items are the Mustache Pearls from Ha! (comes with a scripted version to where the mustache wiggles – it’s awesome!) and Messed Memory Wired Set from Acid & Mala (just beautiful detail).

Platinum and Escher Reale Platinum Platinum Berries Platinum Deviance Platinum SLink, Blitzed & dekade Platinum Rockberry, Magika and Just Me
The hunt items in these pics are the Acid & Mala set again; the dress from *Reale* (Holds up to rezzing, and dancing – I tested it!); the top from Berries Inc.; the Enchantress set from Deviance/Rockberry Kalista skin; the sunglasses from Blitzed/jacket from SLink/skin from [dekade]; the skin from Rockberry/top from *Just Me*/hair from Magika. More pics (including some stuff from the hunt not covered here) on my Flickr.

All of these items are incredible and showcase some of the best designers/creators out there.  As an aside, I have to point out something that I love about the Berries Inc shirt.  I love how the artwork on the system shirt and the prim are continuous (depending on whether or not I’ve messed it up with a pose).  LOVE IT.  It shows an incredible attention to detail, something I appreciate, but totally don’t have the patience to do for myself (which just makes me appreciate it more).

Summer of Love… coming to an end

Summer always flies by with day when everything is a little more relaxed and nights a little longer than normal.  Every June, when I was still in school, I always thought the Summer would stretch on forever, but come the end of August, I always felt like I blinked and it was over.  Now that I’m working, I feel that way about most time in general, but the Summer slowdown in particular – that special time when not everything is a rush, it never lasts, darnit!

The same thing goes for the Summer of Love Fair, which ends on August 8th.  So many talented designers are participating and have put out great finds (and some deals!) – a few of which are exclusive to the fair.  My favorites? Check out the pictures below:

TART Bree SOL Alexohol Fashions - Country Time (All Star) SOL

I’ve said it before, and I’m sure I will continue to repeat myself (I tend to do that, my apologies now), but one of the big reasons I fall in love with an outfit is versatility – either in styling or use of the individual pieces.

SOL Plastik - Vintage SOL Plastik - Denali SOL Plastik - Floratia Intrigue - I'm a Maze(d) SOL Relentless Couture SOL

More pictures can be found on my Flickr with full styling credits.

As I’m sure you’ve seen, the point of this fair is to raise awareness for mental health issues, which a lot of people are affected by, and all of us encounter in one way or another in our lives.  I’m not going to get into any of the politics behind the quantity of information supplied (I get enough of that at work, thanks), but I do want to point out one thing – with all of the participation and interest, what I see is a group of people who are trying to say that if you have an issue and you need help, you are not alone.
