can’t go back to yesterday

I cant go back to yesterday“I can’t go back to yesterday because I was a different person then.”
― Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

A quick portrait shot featuring some amazing headwear by Azoury; when I saw this at the Alice in Sexyland event, I knew it had to be mine! The style is so eye-catching and the shine on the hair is just fabulous.. so much fun to photograph. I just adore Azoury’s style – always something beautiful and unique ❤

My avatar is currently the newest doll from COCO: Fashion Doll. I’m sure, if you’ve visited any of my blogs in the past, you’ll know how much I love Cocoro’s doll avatars, and this latest release is no exception. The body is incredibly versatile and has a lovely sheen to it and there are currently four versions of beautiful heads to choose from, each with their own makeup and eye options; both body and head are available in four skin tones (pale, peach, tan, and dark) and are priced at L$450 each.

This particular version was a group gift when the range was released and is no longer available as such, but there are still clothes and accessories to fit it available for group members. The Dollcoco group is free to join, and Cocoro has always been incredibly generous to its members, so, if you love doll avis, I really recommend you consider making room for it!

Also available is a growing range of extremely cute clothing to fit – expect to see more from me about that soon! 🙂

Until next time, ((hugs))

stuff of nightmares

I’m a big fan of Mr. Wainwright’s work and when I spotted this Contraption release over at the Dark Arts round of Genre I knew it had to be mine! The detail is exquisite and it’s a serious joy to photograph. There are two colour versions available at the event (alongside another amazing mask and a fab free gift) and they cost just L$100 each.

The Listeners‘ is modifiable for easy fitting, scripted with options to texture the stripes and ribbons individually with four colour choices and, if that wasn’t enough, it also includes a low-impact, rezzable, version.

Not many credits for this one but I’ve put them after the page break for continuity’s sake.

Until next time – sleep easy 😉

come away with me

come away with me_one
These absolutely beautiful avatar designs are by Meilo Minotaur and are available free of charge at ReMood United (although I think they more than deserve some L$-lovin’ in the tip jar if you can.) The extensive pack includes skins, shapes and many clothing/accessory items for both male and female avatars – I’ve only pictured a couple of the fab options available.

come away with me_two

Also within the pack is an invitation to visit the Delicatessen sim which contains many more free works of avatar art from Meta-Body I & II. I’ve been on a bit of a building frenzy of late so I haven’t done much in-world exploring but I popped over to the sim earlier today and my word but it is stunning. There are places in SL that take my breath away with their originality and beauty and this is definitely one of them. It’s also a reminder that I need to stop off my platform a lot more often! I’m going to treat myself to a proper visit very soon and, if you love art in SL, I highly recommend you treat yourselves too!

not your boy

 not your boy

I made it out of the studio o/

My continuing quest for unisex clothing has led me to some lovely work by COCO and Apple May Designs. Each item is available in male and female versions and the quality is just amazing. The hand-in-pockets design of the jacket really gives life to the mesh and, by pulling it away from the body slightly, makes it a lot less boob-focused than much other, standard-sized, mesh. It’s also really lovely to see such well designed baggy jeans, and for only L$100, too! I absolutely love how they sit on my hips and I have a feeling it won’t be too long before I snap up the other colours.

I have treated myself to a new skin, too – this is the gorgeous ‘Bryn’ by Flamboyant who make skins for “beautiful, stylish and sexy adult effeminate male, femboys, girlish bois, traps, and trans-gender avatars.” The options you get for your L$800 are really impressive and make it incredibly versatile; certainly I’ve also found it perfect for a ‘tomboy’/FTM/androgynous look. I think I’m going to be wearing ‘Bryn’ a lot so there should be some close-ups soon – in the meantime you can always take a look at the Marketplace listing for lots of details and pics.

Finally, I’d like to give a shout out to the fabulous Honour McMillan, whose blog I read with much pleasure – she always posts about the most incredible places and it’s thanks to her that I found this sim when I was pondering where to take my pic.

if you’re going

 if you're going

Apologies for being slow to pick up the momentum on this blog – I’ve been catching up with creating for events in my store – I’ve been keeping it in mind, though and thinking about how to find new styles. It’s quite a learning curve at the moment and differs from my usual oh-that’s-cute-I’ll-just-blog-that attitude. While I’m still finding things I love, of course, I’m really having to think about the shape and fit of them and what avatar to put them on that might be a little more unusual. It’s a really enjoyable process, though, and I hope you’re enjoying the results, too.

I’ve mentioned at my previous blog how much Zibska‘s creations inspire me, so it was only a matter of time before I was going to revisit them here! I spotted this jewellery set (the pack also includes earrings and rings not pictured) late last night and knew at once I needed to try it on my male doll avatar then found the hair, too. Each has lots of colour options and I’m so happy with the how they look on!

I really love these leggings by NINFANIUM, too – the textures are so well done; I’m looking forward to trying the other colours out! I had a quick look around the rest of the store and I’m impressed with the range on offer – I’ll definitely be returning!

Thanks for reading! Click through for full credits.

suit up!

suit up_one

My first post of the new year – I hope you’ve had a lovely few weeks, whatever you’ve been up to, and that 2015 brings lots of good things to you all! Personally, I’ve had a lovely relaxing time and am returning fully refreshed and looking forward to getting this blog and my other projects fully rolling.

I couldn’t think of a better way to begin blogging this year than treating myself to these beautiful unisex 2-piece skirt-suits from A:S:S. There are three versions currently available (the third being navy blue) and each set comes with boob-ed and flat versions of the jacket-and-shirt combo, several sizes of each piece (I found it easy finding sizes that worked, but remember – demo, demo, demo!) and a HUD with options to texture the shirt and tie individually in a choice of 10 colours.

Unisex clothing seems hard to come by (at least that’s what I’m discovering so far) and cannot be easy to make, so finding work as gorgeous as this is truly heartening and inspiring.. and, at under L$300 each, I also think they’re an absolute steal!

Additionally, the shoes on Prot are by Thor and are also very versatile including, as they do, a HUD with options to texture 5 areas individually with a choice of 7 colours (and also an option of dark or light trim) – they scale down brilliantly, too, so I’m pretty sure they could fit on daintier feet if you so desire.

Finally, thank you to all of you who visit this blog – I love sharing the things I find and I really hope you enjoy me doing so too. Here’s to another year of fabulous fashion! 🍸

of a feather


I’m honoured to know some amazing people who continually stun me with their talent and kindness. One such person is the delectable Shortcake Sugarplum of no.7. Recently she sent me a goodie-box of her latest release – these beautiful feather shawls. I salivated over the contents (my word but the colours are amazing!) but didn’t notice right away that she had named one for me (the bottom one in this pic) based on the colours used in one of the pictures I released at The Gallery Gift Shop anniversary, which she curates. (The picture is ‘it’s a new dawn, it’s a new day’ which can be seen in the ad here for those curious.) You can find these, and many others just as gorgeous, at the Jewelry & Accessory Expo until Dec 13th. Thank you so much, Shortcake ❤ ❤

I also love the unisex skins that Deluxe Body Factory have been producing for MadPea events recently (I covered another over on my previous blog) – these can be found at MadPea’s Scrumptious Sweets Advent event until Jan 4th and also include 2 shape options. I adore the face of ‘Dakota‘ and hope there is more unisex yuminess on the horizon!

Just stopping by to showcase these gorgeous lashes by no.7 available at L’accessoires until December 8th.. they include a colour-change HUD with 4 metal and 8 gem colour options and I think they are absolutely stunning!

This was also another opportunity for me to buy some more of my favourite DECO hair – I love the way it works with COCO‘s doll avatar and I’m kinda pleased with the way this pic turned out in general – if you’d like to see a much bigger version just give it a click as the blog layout does tend to make things pretty small.

Best wishes and see you soon!

Working Nine to Phive
These Phunky Monkeys designed by MadPea are here to take you away from the boring rat race and bring you a whole barrel load of fun!

Most can be attached to your avatar and are delightfully animated to walk alongside you, look around or do other adorable things. ‘Charlie Chimplan‘ also has a lot to say for himself.. and is freakin’ hysterical!

They can be found at the fabulous Cirque de Seraphim – a fundraising event for the ASPCA jam packed with the cutest circus-themed items evah! A portion from all exclusives made for the event benefits the chosen charity (voted for by Seraphim readers) and you can also donate directly via booths scattered around the two sims. Seraphim are keeping track of the money raised here.

MadPea is sponsoring the event and have also created 3 exclusive items of which 50% of all sales go to benefit the ASPCA – see those items (and the full range of monkeys!) over on the MadPea blog. Also, you can read more about the event, and see the full line-up, over on Seraphim.

Cirque de Serphim is open until November 26th so be sure to make the most of this last week and grab yourself some circus-y goodness!
