May the odds be ever in your favor

effietrinket

New week and new Monday Meme by the ever so lovely Strawberry Singh. This time she urges us to dress up as a movie character. My first thought was Katniss Everdeen from the Hunger Games but it just felt too easy. I wanted a proper challenge. So I opted for Effie Trinket from the same movie.

I had a couple frustrating hours trying to find something, anything avantagard enough for Effie. Then I found this lovely cocktail dress aptly named Capitol Cocktail from Dead Dollz and it was pretty much smooth sailing from there.

I love Effie. I love how positively out of place she is in the Districts, how she almost always keeps a smile and a positive outlook, even though the people around her makes her grind her teeth. And I love her progression from absolutely clueless to the workings of the world, to the sensitive and understanding woman she becomes.

Effie today, Effie tomorrow, Effie Forever.

Kickin’ ass and takin’ names

I saw this top on Flickr and decided that I had to have it. It’s not exactly my usual kind of fashion, but it was just too awesome to pass up. So I made my way down to pixicat and got the top. Then I saw these pants. And well, the rest just sort of followed. I took the pics at The Wastelands, which is some great looking post apocalyptic RP sims. Definitely worth the visit.

I felt like with this kickass outfit I need some ink and steel. I found some great tattoos at Letis that had Physique appliers. Both tattoos have right and left arm options and you can apply them individually so you can have two different arm tattoos, something you can not do with the default avatar body. I’m also slightly in love with this finger claw thingie from Random Matter.

Peaches

You know, I took these photos ten days ago. Edited them. Then promptly forgot about them. A bit of a scatterbrain sometimes, for sure.

Please don’t kill me when I say this but… I’m not a big fan of unicorns. I know, I know, put down your pitchforks. So this round of Collabor 88 wasn’t a big hit for me. But I did pick up a few things, because well, I have a problem. A shopping problem. I beelined for the shoes from Fri.day, because Hello Hot Heels! Then I decided to build the outfit around the heels, so I picked up a couple of items from The Secret Store too. A house may have slunk in my cart as well.

Nice day for shopping

Today is the 21st! That means 21Shoe is on. You get a bunch of shoes from nice designers in exclusive colors, two pairs for the price of one. It’s a shoe lovers dream. I picked up these Glamistry heels myself. Two nice ombre type colors, a purple/blue and the ones I’m wearing a golden/blackish. New for the Glamistry heels is that you can buy new colors for your shoes right in the HUD. You don’t even have to go to the store.

Also opening today is My Attic, where you can find this delicious mini dress from SySy’s. I saw it on plurk and knew I just had to blog the chocolate one. Brown is a hard color to get right, but when it’s this rich, it’s just perfect.

Fancy Purple

fancypurple

It’s been ages since I went to Gizza last, so I figured, why not. I left almost broke. There is some really fancy mesh going on over there, I recommend you go have a look. I took fancy to this tunic in purple and matched it with a pair of suede pants in a neutral color.

The shoes are new from Glamistry. As usual you have several customization options so you can make them your own. I especially like the suede and leather combo in this shoe. Makes for a nice contrast.

An Abundance of Bows

I was in the Secret SLanta this year and one of the many (oh so many) thing I got from my SLanta was this dress. It’s from Katatonik and was in one of their gacha machines, so if you want one, the yardsales are your friend. I like that it’s fitted mesh for physique, it pretty much fits like a glove. Thank you Secret SLanta!

Classy Leather

urban

My Dearest Sister asked me to come out clubbing the other day. It’s been a while since I did something outside of blogging and shopping, so I agreed. She said the theme was leather. This posed an interesting problem. While I had a lot of leather, most of it was years old and frankly, didn’t cover much skin at all. So I set out to create a classy leather look.

Theses pants from Sn@tch paired with the sweater with leather sleeves from Color Me HOF felt like a good combo. Add on some stiletto pumps and voila! I liked it so much I had to take some pictures for the blog.

Yearbook Challenge

veenyaventeryearbook

If you hang out at any of the Second Life friendly social media, I’m sure you’ve noticed the sudden influx of Yearbook like photos of avatars. It’s all Strawberry Singh’s fault. She put forth a challenge to take a smiling yearbook photo of your avatar. Of course I had to jump the bandwagon.

In America it’s common for people to get a “Most likely to…” in the yearbook. That’s not something we do in Sweden, so I asked my American Sister to give me something appropriate. “Most likely to Dominate the World” she said. I can live with that. What’s your tag?

To New Beginnings

galaxy1

I’m back from Florida! Well I’ve been back a while, but I took some time off internet stuffs to play Civilization: Beyond Earth and hang with the puppy. Florida was awesome. We romped on the beach, ate a lot of good food and saw things I’ve only seen on TV before. I will definitely be back.

Since I wasn’t here for New Years I thought I’d blog a glittery outfit now instead. This skirt from Tres Blah seemed like the perfect piece to start with. It’s available at this round of Uber, as is the fur jacket from Foxes.

I hope 2015 brings you lots of awesome things. Happy New Year!

Happy Holidays

christmas

As some of you may know, I have moved halfway around the world from my family. This means that all previous traditions are off the table and I have to make my own. This year that entails a delicious Deer & Beer Stew, a scary movie and tomorrow I leave for Miami, Florida. It’s going to be a week of Sun, Beaches, Art, Friends & Fun.

So, until Next Year!
