I did it I bought one. Hey only one! Argh I wanted to buy several, so many nice colours, but for now I stick to this one; the Ambrice dress in Aztec sun and sparkle gold.
All 50 Ambrice dresses come in two colours and many many layers. I show you mine: Aztec sun and sparkle gold. Yes Aikea Reiko did it again and made another awesome dress! Yep Plastik definitely is one of my fav shops in SL.
One of the things I love most in SL and RL: exploring. Well I did today, with my friend Smiling, an explorer himself, who gave me many LM's and accompanied me to a few of the sims. I was amazed at all the creativity and beauty I encountered. Thanks Smiling, I had great fun and you gave me so many smiles ;-)
Foul Whisperings, Strange Matters is a symbolic treatment of the key themes of Shakespeare's play, Macbeth. Exploring the island allows one to experience the key milestones on Macbeth's journey.
Shakespeare's Macbeth is the story of a serial killer whose emotional journey is one from the will to power, through to bloodlust, moral confusion and ultimately to death. You can also drill down to investigate themes such as the notions of authorship, adaptation, the playhouse, power and ethics.
MINA opened a new store (picture taken there) and has several 1 L$ opening gifts hidden. One of them is the Lotte brown hair I am wearing. But also the cute black/white top in the back of the picture is a 1L$ item as are several others. Success hunting ladies.
I am also wearing an oldtime favourite, the Zaara Xacuti wrap top. Now in lilac-turquoise version, which I bought today for little money at the Blue Dressing Room. Awesome!
Last but not least:
I received an NC from Mischief in which Janie Marlowe explained this is her last sale in Mischief history. She will stop with the Mischief lable and start something new.
Meanwhile all outfits and dresses marked down to 90L (greedy packs for 180L) and all single items marked to 50L (greedy packs for 100L). Not sure how long the sale will last.
I revisited Alanis Gallery to have a better look at the art work. My first visit had been a rather brief one, although then I was fortunate to have the owner, Michiel Seetan showing me around. Michiel and his SL partner Sylvia Fitzpatrick are the owners of the Gallery. Sylvia is the artistic art director, her pictures are exhibited among many others of several erotic artists.
I took my time and walked around taking some pics. Not enough I admit, but I hope it gives you an impression.
I was intrigued by Emiel Drascol’s hyper-erotic studies of Sonia, his RL wife and submissive. Did not publish them in my blog as hey... this is a decent blog... well sort of ;-) Go and take a tour yoursef at Alanis Gallery

Yesterday I was shopping at Maitreya after receiving a message that there are several new items in store: short trench jackets, skirts and an awesome top called Bastille. Onyx LeShelle does it again, and keeps amazing us with her trendy, stylish, high quality designs.
As I stood there in front of the Bastille tops, drooling, there was a girl named Seville wearing the Bastille top in orange. Wow, it looked awesome on her dark skin. I told her so in IM.
I was surprised and thrilled when she gave me money for a top, telling me to buy one. Wow so sweet of her.
wearing Maitreya bastille top; demo PF Ember Beestung skin (should I buy?)
As always it was difficult for me to decide which color to buy (me sighs). I asked Seville for help, after all it was her present. She suggested the yellow/gold one, which was one of my favorites. So happy with my yellow Bastille top ;-).
Thanks and hugs Seville!
Later that evening I went to Pink Fuel (PF) shop with Ner to drool over the Ember skin. The Ember, Beestung make-up makes me look so sweet, don't you agree? Should I buy?
When I read stuff about Second Life in the media nowadays it mentions SL is history. The hype was in 2006/2007 when a lot of companies started their virtual offices and many people joined (like me). I don't think that SL is dead but on the other hand I do notice that it is seldom I meet avi's who are really new to SL. Most have been around for a while OR and that is more and more common nowadays are ALT's.
My experience: I was exploring an escort sim and although I was rather 'overdressed' I received an IM of a fancy looking guy. We danced and the conversation was agreeable. I asked him if he was an ALT as he looked too good for a noob. He admitted he was and told me he had 5 avi's walking around and played with them simultaneously. He started to ask me more and more impertinent questions and my level of irritation was building. When he told me that as we were dancing he was making love to another girl with his 1st, 2nd or 3rd avi, don't remember which one, I walked away.
On the other hand yesterday I was exploring and met a nice guy, an artist in RL. We had an interesting talk about art which took us from Renaissance to Die Brucke. He looked like a gentleman, although not very fashionable. He told me he hardly ever changed his avi. He had to leave to save his cookings, but I am sure we will meet again.
Yesterday evening when dancing in September Rainforest with Sven there was a noob. The guy did not know how to stop dancing (qualifying him as a real noob) no problem, BUT this one was so damn rude. The host banned him in the end as he refused to change his attitude, kept insulting others for no reason at all.
My conclusion last night: still enough people in SL that are interesting and fun to meet as long as they are no ALT's or noobs ;-)
A wonderful place to unwind, explore and meanwhile listen to the sound of crickets and owls. Tastefully made, with good vibrations and a bit mysterious and intriguing as well. Mmm, go and find out yourselves! Taxi to Minute Papillon.
This weekend I danced at September Rainforest again. Wow, awesome place that gives you the feeling of being in the middle of a tropical rainforest, with an ancient ruin, waterfalls and lots of vegetation and a damp atmosphere. There were up-to-date dances (single and couple), a kind hostess and live DJ... and above all good music.
I had noticed the LM when sneaking into a profile (one of my fav hobbies) and found out the place had re-opened.
Like many others I have good memories of the old September Rainforest. I used to dance and romance there often with friends. The old sim included many scattered romantic areas with nice pose balls. No idea if they are still there as I did not explore but only danced and enjoyed the music. Will do next time ;-)
Searching the web I found an item dated February 2010 on Dementrix blog about the reopening. Very interesting as this explains that the reopening is mainly the effort of Holiday Blitz, a girl who used to be a host at the old September Rainforest. Thanks Holiday!
Pffff I have been spending hours and hours the past evenings on restructuring my inventory. Still not finished ... (me sighs). But, on the other hand it's fun to find stuff that's in there for ages, a little dusty maybe, but still looking good.
Like for instance the 'Last Call' clothes: I stumbled into an entire folder with outfits. Some of them still look so good and up-to-date. I decided to show you some of the stuff, sometimes in combinations with newer items.
Sorry, but the clothes are no longer available. However, they all are transfer/no copy items .... so you could try to obtain second hand stuff ;-). When Ginny Talamasca died Katterina Dagostino, her SL business partner/friend kept Last Call shop open till March 31st 2008, before starting a new shop with a new partner called Archange. I remember vividly that it was always loaded with avi's at Last Call shop coz all outfits were on sale for only 100 L$ or less.
So here we go:
Britney outfit without tie
shirt and tie of Britney outfit combined with Plastik skirt Sephira
Frida trench jacket combined with MIEL Cali Cords Combo skirt
I am totally in love with my MINA Jean black hair. Jean is shoulder-length hair with razored layers that taper into flared edges. It comes with and without a headband. I prefer the headband version. It falls naturally around my face, looks feminin but not barbie-like.
I visited MINA her shop this weekend and met the designer Mina Makamura, who btw is Dutch like me. So many fantastic Dutch designers here in SL, makes me feel chauvinistic.
Anyway I decided to dedicate a blog on MINA hair. I am a picky customer I know, I have too many hairs in my invent already. Talking about that; I need to restructure my hair folder too ... meaning hours of hard work, sighs!
I like the Suzan hair: a fuzzy updo hairstyle as Mina calls it. Wow now that's more my style: a bit wild and messhy - love it! So I decided to buy Suzan. After all a girl cannot have enough hair ;-) Does it suit me as much as it does Mina?
Sometimes it is good to look back and count your blessings. In SL so many things got better over the years. When I look back at Dido 2007 arghhh. All this thanks to the efforts of all the wonderful designers of skin, hair and eyes that make our avi's look so smashing.
Let me show you the difference.
2007: my first SL pictures
2008: wearing the first skin I bought: Dutch Touch
My friend Ner and me we went shopping for her blog item Flowers. So much fun and very inspiring; as shopping with her means tp-ing around the grid looking for sometimes one specific item. Curious after the result? Visit her blog. I love her look and outfit and .... she inspired me to create my own.
It all started with the So Many Styles (SMS) Floral Tulip skirt dress and Chiffon Skirt Red-Blue. I was so enchanted by the skirt that I also bought the yellow/lila version.
I wanted to create a tough but classy look that's why I choose from my closet the laceup boots, net stockings and the hair.
I like the LeeZu jacket for it is a very usefull piece in ones closet. It can also be worn stand alone on a black long skirt thus making a sexy evening dress.
Last week was a busy one: I have been installing myself at Tohl sim with the help of Alphons. Such a creative builder that guy, with an inventory that contains many nice things ;-).
At first I wanted the awesome bungalow with the separate veranda: my home at Legion Triumphant. However, that meant I had hardly any prims left. So, after a night sleep I decided it was time for a change: I should not hold on to the past, but create a different atmosphere.
Alphons mentioned he had lots of nice houses in his invent. He put them all on my former island at Legion, looked like a weirdo bungalow park there. It was great fun examing them. I picked part of a tree hut with a veranda. Alphons enlarged the veranda and it even has built-in dances now ;-)
I especially like the shoreline of my tiny island: rocks and waves with accompanying sounds.
