ECLIPSE Magazine

A while back I was approached by Cajsa Lilliehook to participate in ECLIPSE Magazine’s “Voices from the Grid.” Every month, a few residents get asked a question and get to write their take on that subject. This month the question is “How real is Second Life?” You can read mine and others answers in the October issue of ECLIPSE Magazine.

For this article I was also asked to include a picture. I took many version until I settled for this one. I’m very happy with the end result and think it looks really good in the magazine. What do you think?

Miss Arabella

I have fallen in love with these boots. They’re from CandyDoll and was released at last months Collabor 88, but I’m still wearing them and loving every minute of it. It’s not often that I fatpack things, but in this instance, it was worth every single penny. The Arabella boots come in a plethora of colors and since you can customize the boots, the garter strap and the heel individually, the combinations are numerous in the fatpack. Just the way I like it.

You can get the Arabella boots at the mainstore or on marketplace.

Falling in Love with Fall

perfectautumn

I know. It’s like a broken record. But I can’t help it. I love fall. It’s my favorite time of year, it always has been. It’s that time of year when it’s socially acceptable to stay indoors and marathon netflix, but also good enough outside that you can go out and enjoy it and not die from dehydration. So fall is my thing. I love that so many sims are now decked in a fall shroud. My personal skybox has been fallyfied since August… So that’s a thing. Anyway.

Going with the Stay-in/Stay-Out theme, this set from Addams feels like something for a warm autumn day. You know, when it’s sunny enough to not freeze to death, but you’d still like a cardigan. That kinda deal. I mean, if it was real life, I’d probably wear tights under those shorts, but whatever, it’s SL. Nobody freezes in SL.

I paired it with these gorgeous leather boots from Fri.day, also available at Uber. These look a lot like a pair I have IRL, so I was excited! They come in 4 supple fall inspired leathery looks. Uber is open right now, so go get yours.

A Crisp Autumn Day

neveautumn1

You know, all week I’ve been fighting a cold. And it’s been hell. But not only that, my beautiful crisp Autumn that I so love have fallen victim to this torrential downpour of water. Water everywhere. So I made the executive decision to pull the curtains, ignore the real world and go in pursuit of a happier autumn in Second Life.

And I found it in a place called Cape Juniper. It’s a lovely little street lined with adorable cafés and little homely shops and bakeries. The whole place is decorted for autumn, so it was perfect for me. What’s even better is that they allow rez, so I could rez this pose crate from oOo. The crate is from The Photographer’s Hunt, so it’s only 5L and comes with 14 poses included.

Another great find this week is these lovely heels from Glamistry. It’s a classy leather pump and comes in 10 different colors in the fatpack that you can use to customize three different areas of the shoe. I think they go perfectly with my fall inspired dress from Neve.

Our four legged friends

somniauber

Most of us have at some point had a four legged friend that has made the world a better place for us to live in. Whether it be a dog or a hamster, most of us know how fast they become important parts of our lives and how much we love them.

So, when a fellow human has her four legged friend hurting, I want to try and help. Sanura Snowpaw’s dog-friend Kassie has some bad issues with her knee and needs a surgery that unfortunately Sanura can’t afford at the moment.

So in an effort to raise the money, she now has a special 50% off sale at her store Somnia. There’s a lot of good stuff to be had at dirt cheap prices, like this cute fitmesh top. And while you’re there, drop a few lindens in Kassie’s get-well fund. Or, if you are more inclined to use RL means; she’s put up a GoFundMe here.

Sanura is a gentle and loving person who have spent a lot of time and resources in Second Life to help raise funds for a number of causes and I think it’s only right that we chip in and help her now that she needs a little help herself. Any amount you can give is a help and I know she will appreciate every single linden you can give. TP to Somnia now!

Black Friday

wednesdayblack

I was actually suppose to post this on Wednesday and do the whole “On Wednesday we wear Black” thing, because this outfit is so very AHS: Coven. I think it would suit Madison Montgomery like a glove. But yeah, I forgot about it Wednesday so here’s Black Friday, instead.

wednesdayblack1

I’ve been running around in this outfit for probably two weeks now because it’s that awesome. It’s a mix of things from Collabor 88 with a touch of Arcade. If you haven’t done Collabor 88 yet, go now. I went out broke. Twice. That’s how great this round is.

And this jacket. Like holy crap, this jacket.  It moves. WHAT?! Fucking brilliant.
