The Future Is Sn@tch

The first of my series of posts for the amazing 2010-The Future Is Now event. I was lucky enough to have a front row seat, along with Eden and Jussy. There were some absolute stunners, and it was incredible to see everyone thinking outside the box.

As soon as this came down the runway, Jussy and I were all WANT. Then when we realised it was created by Ivey as Sn@tch‘s contribution, we were DOUBLE WANT. The avatar is absolutely stunning in every way. It comes complete with skin, hair, eyes, clothes, and the showstopper tentacles.

Kali is the Goddess of time and change, and has been flung into the 21st century exqusitely by Ivey. If the future is nipple tentacles, gimme moremoremore!! I wanted Jussy to model for me, cos she totally rocked the av hard. Now I’ve got to catch up with my overflowing to blog folder, a week off is like a month in SL :P Ash Out.

Heart & Sole

Another flurry of packing, a quick skim of the feed (I actually got no further than Dakota in a kilt *swoon*), a 4am testing of a posestand and here I am! I actually took these pics last week sometime, but I’m so easily sidetracked atm. I’m also nearly 48 hours without smoking, my doctor is stoked, me not so much. I have thusfar had a killer headache, nausea and dizzy spells. I’m using the E-cig to help me quit, so I’ve lowered my cartridge to the low nicotine version to help combat the dizzy.

A few months back, I had the pleasure of being introduced to Bijoux Lefavre from Heart & Sole. I fell in love with her shoes, and her philosophy of being a designer in SL. Great shoes, which are so easy to tint to your skin tone at a very very affordable price. So affordable in fact, I think I bought every pair of boots this lady has ever made, on a single visit to her store. I’m also showing something that had me tickled pink, a necklace from Silent Sparrow. Hya makes me happy, and Hya jewelery makes me even happier.

Morrigan from The Black Canary also makes me very happy, his creativity has me in awe everytime I speak to him and mostly I’d like to shrink him down to mini size so I could pocket him and carry him round the grid :P I love the effortless flowing between genders in all his creations, Justice is a die hard fan of Morri’s boy ensembles and carries them really well. I like both, and mix alot of the more girly tops with masculine pants. Shown here with another pair of shoes from Heart & Sole, for a feminine touch. Back to packing now then off to get my whirlwind of a daughter from school. Ash Out.

Brrr

At a time of year when I would usually be hitting the beach, and complaining about the unbearable heat, I am instead wearing 43698745684567 layers of clothing and unable to move my fingers properly cos I’m so sodding cold. This English weather is gonna take some getting used to, and Winter hasnt even started properly yet.

So in honour of my freezing my real ass off, I thought I would show off the scrummy warm clothes my av has been wearing for the last couple of days. The look started with the awesome new cardigan from Bare Rose, Usakko. You get blue,brown,green,grey and pink in the pack, insane value, and it’s so warm and cuddly looking!

Of course the perfect hair was one of my all time faves from Mirai Style, Fuka. The hat is texture change so you get loads of options, I dont think it left my head for very long last winter :P Aaaaaaaaand the shoes. Sasy had tp’d me to a store months ago called HOC. My vivid memory from that trip was the ridiculously cheap price of all the shoes. My runners, 16 colour change, 40L. Mhmm, that was no typo. For a small selection of the wicked creations you’ll find at HOC, check out their booth at the Footwear Expo. Or you could do an Ash, go to the main store, and buy the lot. Ash out.

Ooh newness!

Oh today has been soo up there on the awesomesauce scale. I gots to hang out with Noodle, it’s been so long, the timezone thinger sucks pus. We bought all sorts of fabutastic stuff before she dragged me (yes dragged kicking and screaming) to Runoruno to check out the newness.

Shown above is the After Ballet Class Skirt and the Weave Jacket. Yup total yum, and the perfect foil for my Riding Boots from Coco, which I had picked up a few weeks before the Footwear Expo. There are alot of prims, so be prepared for some editing, although Ms Runo is kind enough to not only provide her hip measurements, but also editing instructions for newer players, not bad ay!

Ah my fabulous new Lace-Up Workboots from Coco. They are made of so much bloody win I don’t know where to start. Wear em loose, wear em normal, even wear them with handy dandy denim cuffs so you have an attachment point free for your jeans. Yea, you heard right :P Although I have to say, at 4am, I found the cuffs confuzling, and it was decided by persons other than myself that sleep was needed, mmhm. The skirt is also brand spanking new from Runorono, it’s The Patent Skirt. I’m wearing it with the top of the Silk Dress, which is deliciously sheer, and a purchase I made months ago with Sasy giggling at me in voice. Now back to packing, I’m moving in a few days, and I for one cannot fucking wait. Ash Out.

Silent Sparrow

I haz the flu, for the second time in 3 weeks, bloody London and it’s stoopid weather! However, nothing could stop me doing this post as it’s about my very favorite store in SL. Silent Sparrow has long been a store I love, ever since I got a Halloween outfit there in ’07. My “Not So White Wedding” outfit remains in my inv to this day, which cannot be said of alot of purchases I made that year. In fact, piece for piece, my Silent Sparrow folder is the largest, unashamedly so :P

The Sprocket suit in Ash was one I didn’t actually own yet, but being a boy this week gave me the perfect opportunity to scoop it up and take it home.

The Ryou suit in Dove is a gorgeous suit, for either guys or girls. I also wanted to show it for the departure colour wise from Hya’s usual offerings. It really is spectacular, and I would have bought it for the pants alone, deadset perfect in every way.

And I couldn’t let Halloween go by without some blood. The Aconite suit is one I first saw on Ms Ach, and I wanted it soooo bad. Justice ended up buying it for me, as my account was having an epic cannot buy lindens phase, which seems to happen about once a year. The blood isn’t overdone, I love the bandages….all of em. I wanted to wear a tuff boy skin, so I chose my Inflict scrummyness. This particular one was a gift a few months ago, to celebrate the launch of the range, it’s a tad darker than I would usually go for, but works wonderfully for this post. These are some seriously stunning skins, Jussy flipped when she saw that at the Skin/Shape expo, and I spent hours standing in that booth just staring! Ok, entirely enough talking from me, go buy shit :P Ash out.

We Interrupt Your Cute Scheduling……………….

It started last night, as most things in our crew do, with an “omgomgomgomg” IM. We ended up TP’ing round the grid grabbing amazingness and I had a quick convo with Ivey as to how I could have missed her releasing a posture collar (more on that in a later post). Somehow we got separated at Sn@tch, and I was in Pulse while Whimsy and Sasy were still in Sn@tch City.

The credit for finding this amazing outfit all goes to Whimsy, who stood in front of it while rezzing, then squealed in voice about how gorgy the kimono was next to it. I landed on her head and the Ghost Hakama outfit by Selos Dae of Trap rezzed in for me. No word of a lie, it took my breath away.

It was made for the Fantasy Fair and is an accompanying piece to the Ishiko Kimono from Gauze. It is absolutely stunning and proof positive for me that Selos should branch out and make more clothes ASAP, now, kthnx :P

There are parts for guys and girls, and even though I’m teeny, I didn’t need to adjust a thing. I feel so badass in fact, I ran round doing 50L Fridays dressed thusly, lag and everyone be dammned! Now I’m off to get mini Ash from school, then collapse, as four hours in the tattoo chair is alot, even for a badass such as myself :P Ash Out.

Ms Anya

So I’ve been having a bit of a slump lately, feeling uninspired blogging wise. It all came to a head last night with me screaming like a banshee in Sasy’s ear that I hated my inventory, hated taking pictures and hated everything. So she set me a challenge, no blood, no darkness and no emo for a week. Fast forward 12 hours, and oh how bright a new morning can be! So here’s my first non dark post, ironic considering Halloween’s coming up :P

Sharing the Blackmarket space with Ms Anya Ohmai and the girls has been a blast, and I thought it was high time to check out her main store, !Ohmai. I dragged Sasy with me so we could ooh and aah over the gorgy pieces together. Shown above is the Spun Silk gown and god it’s so pretty, floaty, and totally not something I would normally wear. But always one to take on a challenge, I’m so glad I did cos I felt like a princess and didn’t want to take it off.

The Nina sweater in absolutely stunning, and paired with the sheer leggings, it’s an awesome, comfy combo. Cos it’s freezing here in London, I’m wearing big sweaters I can layer under, so this outfit felt right at home for me.

And to finish, the super cute Puff Blouse, shown here in Lavender. I’m so loving all the pieces from Anya’s store (I think i bought it all) and I can’t wait for her to do pants, jeans and moar shorts :P Demanding asshole aint I! Ash Out.

Kraftika

Once upon a time, there was a group of fresh faced sl-ers, back when clubs and dancing in sl were the shit. We all hosted or DJ’d at various clubs round the grid, making money to pay for uploads (in my case) or practicing torturing prims, in the case of Anuitka Barthelmess and Zara Yip. Back when Voodoo was the place to be, Zara managed the club, Annuitka and I hosted, Jester and Karr DJ’d, and Kenlee was the long suffering PR type person.

What a difference nearly 3 years makes. We’ve all moved on to do the things we love, and you can really tell Anuitka loves what she does. Kraftika has gone from strength to strength. You will find some gorgeous pieces at the store and at the Jewelery Fair. The stunning necklace 133 is a standout for me, it’s the perfect statement piece for that special occasion.

The bangles are out of this world. You have a million choices of stacks, colours, thickness. I chose the 304 bracelets for this post, I just love them. The ring, unfortunately can’t be bought. Anu made it for me years ago, as practice, and it’s something I really hold dear. Just putting it on reminds me of those first days in our SL, and reminds me that there are eleventy twelve billion reasons I have stayed, and most of those reasons have to do with the people. Ash Out.

Hair Fair Part 6

For this fair post, I wanted to showcase one designer. Black Maria has long been my go to store for alternative, in yer face attitude hair. Last year, I dragged my friends round the grid looking for a half hawk for about 4 hours, then ended up finding it at Black Maria, and was all “dammit wth didn’t I start here?!!”

bm1 copy

On preview day, I had combed the fair looking for the BM booth, only to discover it wasn’t set up yet. I braved the lag a couple of days ago, to go back and drop some money, and the first thing that rezzed in the booth was a sign saying 100% of the proceeds got to Locks Of Love. Then more signs rezzed, all saying the same thing. I was squeeing in the blogger’s group about it with Sileny, and anyone else who was listening, then went into buyer’s frenzy. The style shown above is called Mad, and I love it like woa.

bm2 copy

This one is called Alto, and is one of those deliciously deceptive styles, very sweet and innocent from the front, with the cute bangs and ponytail, then turn to the side and BAM!!!! Completely shaved sides………soo hawt. If you’re a hawk fan, the Black Maria booth is the one you need to make a point of stopping at, also if you wanna get in Opera Qunhua’s IM box for a bit of fangirling like I did, feel free :P Ash Out.
