School’s Out

School, college, university………one of the most popular RP scenarios in SL. I won’t name sims, you already know them you dirty lot :P Guys generally take on the “teacher” role, not counting the fabulous headmistress at School Girls Gone Bad, but thats a bedtime story for another time.

Dressing the part helps suspend your belief and immerse yourself in the RP, much in the same way a snippet of fact in a book of fiction tricks your brain into believing the whole story.

SL is all about possibilities, and I have such fun turning stereotypes on their heads. Sure, wanna play naughty college students? I’ll be the teacher dammit :p Thats why I was more than stoked to find the outfit I’m showing today.

This school teachers outfit from MPS is so hot it should be fucking illegal. I blame Sasy of course, for posting the cheeky mini skirts from there. As soon as this rezzed in for me, it was right click buy with no hesitation at all. It even comes with a nifty pointer, which could double as a switch depending on your frame of mind. On the RP subject, one thing that never ceases to amaze me, is the people that say they loath it so much, they have a whole list of scenarios that upset them listed in their profiles, while claiming to never have set foot in an RP sim. Really, really? I call shenanigans. Ash Out.

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.

future4 copy1

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.

My league

Having spent the last 2 days dealing with what can only be described as epic fail, I felt the need to slip into some old favie clothes and hell, why not document it for the blog :P

2- copy

League clothes are the smex. The Scoop! dress is incredible, and oh so daring. Also absolutely perfect for showing off your cleavage enhancer. I chose Portia from Adam & Eve for her classic face and well toned torso.

2- copy1

I love the Strapped Wool outfit, it’s such incredible value too, as the boots are included. Another all time fave is the hair from Vanity, totally fierce. And now I’m off to get geared up for the Shoe Fair which can’t come quick enough for me. Ash Out.

Beauty Avatar

Sometimes shopping is the awesome in more ways than one. The other day, while hairwhoring round the grid, I bumped into Saretta Tedeschi, manager of Beauty Avatar. It was nice to actually see her in the flesh rather than conversing via IM. Anyhoo, she asked me to take a look at the new collection the girls had released, which I’m sure I had a card about, somewhere in my inv, but group notices if I even get them do tend to get buried.

So I have 3 very different looks for you, and I even pulled out my super special, limited edtition shape from Silouhette (which is no longer avail but gotta give Carissa props for it :P) The first dress is Zae, and I love the structured, military feel of it. To soften it just the tinyest, I added my brand spanking new earrings from Uzuri. So new in fact, Bella burnt my ears off when she handed them over, they were that hot off the press.

I’m such a huge fan of babydolls in SL. I used to wear them all the time in RL until Mini Ash came along, then they reminded me of being pregnant so they found their way to the back of my wardrobe, never to be seen again. But thats the beauty of fashion in world, you can wear all sorts of stuff you wouldn’t/couldn’t in RL. This particular one is Carola, and it’s devine. The skirt is shorter than short though, so do be warned :P

beauty3 copy

This last look is my fave, not least for the irony of me wearing earmuffs and a teeny tiny bodysuit! Fiona comes in an array of colours to suit all tastes, the white just felt the most dramatic to me. The hair shown is our new love from Boon, that I wasn’t sure I liked at first, but it’s certainly grown on me. Now I’m off to go back to waiting for the postman to deliver my brand new E-Cigs (love you Ivey) Ash Out.

FurseTri

For ages I’ve been complaining I have nothing to wear, hence the challenges set by my fabulous friends. This week’s challenge is to spend no money, as I worked out that I’ve spent over 200USD over the last couple of weeks. However, I still have to finish my boy posts, of which I have a few lined up. I needed a girly break, and also getting ready for skin fair doesnt quite work in a boy av :P

Before I moved to London, a lovely lady by the name of Delicious contacted me and asked me to take some pics of her. I was very flattered and set about doing just that. She again contacted me recently to check out a store owned by Seville Furse, FurseTri. I spoke with Seville at length about her store, her design goals and hopes for the future. I found a few can’t live without pieces, Dirty Rich shown above is my fave. It reminded me of that iconic shot of Grace Jones from the 80’s, all rawr and powerful. I chose the Imani skin from Laqroki to pair with it, and some drop dead stunning glasses from Prim Optic. The boots are from Anexx, my first foray into their shoe store to be honest.

The Best Overall, shown above in blossom won my heart for the cute factor. I love overalls in SL, having somewhat of a feverish collection of them! Seville has made a great start, and I look forward to seeing more from her in the future. 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.

Don’t Adjust Your Monitors

My next challenge was set by Justice last week. We were talking about how hot we thought our boy avs are, and how sometimes it was nice to escape and not have to be “pretty”. So do it for a week, says Ms Justice. Well alrighty then!

My first stop had to be Artilleri. I absolutely love the shirts and jeans in the mens section, and it has to be the place to go if you don’t feel like wearing a cloak and sword :P There is so much focus in SL on women’s clothes, hair, skins, shoes. But Sasy and I were talking about it the other day, and the guys would spend, if there was something that really caught their attention. My besty Artie spends more time shopping than I do, granted he has an inv full of some shocking ensembles, but he also has some gold too.

I had to update my guy’s hair and skin too. I had an old Laqroki skin, Keith, that I just wasn’t feeling anymore. So off to Den-Dou I went. I demoed everything, and Ichiro was my fave. Shown here in Emo Stubble cos I loves guyliner. The hair is from Uncleweb, a store Steiner directed me to. I love a friend I can just IM with randomness, and they go with the flow!! He must be used to it by now with me, and I suppose me saying I was being a boy for a week was on the tame side of our convos! The tank is from Pofuzz, and is an L at the moment…score! There’s also a brick coloured one, so grab that too while you’re there.

This last shirt was a gift from Sasy. I seem to remember going to Junglewear years ago with hubby, on a quest for body hair of all things!! Anyhoo, apart fron the hair there a 3 floors of menswear, not bad ay. 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.

Moar Badassery

After feeling so Kick yer butt yesterday, I found it carried over into my shopping. I was all about the tatts and piercings, and black baby, lots of fucking black.

After dropping heaps at Atomic (btw the new tatts are amazing) it was time for a store crawl, Sasy was in search of a teeny dress she had seen on the feed. That bought it was time to actually let GothiCatz rez and look round.

Several outfits grabbed me, but my first purchase was Echo. Hot black leather? Check. Full length coat? Check. Pants to match? Check. The collar alone was enough for me to right click-buy. All the prim pieces come with resizer scripts, which I totally needed for the skirt part of the coat, being not only short, but a totally different shape from the creator. However, it was all sorted in less than 2 mins and looking quite spiffy :P

I have several more outfits to show you from there, in later posts, I was so glad I revisited, although my Slwallet was groaning at me ;P Ash Out.
