I could not resist this pretty face at Collabor88 by The Skinnery. Vikra is super pretty and clean looking on my Zora head from leLUTKA! The only thing I added are some of Velour‘s E-girl blushes from last weekend’s sales. My hair Promise is by Truth Collective, and currently out at Equal10
My earrings are from Piece of Me, Nami, also a weekend discount item and my Emmy Kimono is from Fashionably Dead, at Collabor88.
The Echinacea flowers I have had in my inventory for a while, and they are by Lode. Last but not least, my Hope eyes are from Avi-Glam
In yesterday’s entry I mentioned that Belleza, with their new update, also has a dainty version of both their Classic and Curvy Gen X body. Got to play a bit with it today, and it’s really very cute,(but also REALLY very dainty!) I put my boobs on 100 for the occasion, and they are barely the average SL handful (considering, most avatars have their hands way too little, I think this is a fair observation).
Top and panties come with the body and I hope this addition will soon get some traction from the creators, because it’s cute and sweet and deserves some pretty content! Close up below because BOOBIES!
I also hit the weekend sales for a bit, and scored some new stuff. This Lulu skin from Ives for instance is seriously discounted this weekend! as is all my makeup from Velours, shown below!
Actually, the only non sales items I am wearing is my hair, Envy by Truth; my earrings which I could not resist from Yummy at C88 and my cardigan from Tetra, which does not even come in GenX fit, but the Ebody version is quite ok, especially for pics.

Yesterday I was playing with some items from my inventory, and the below look happened. It has no concept thought up beforehand, it literally just happened. I do think it beautifully showcases Poema‘s glamorous Wasabi eyeshadow as well as their lovely Addiction lipstick.

I’m getting ready to go on a date with Mac tonight, and I’m actually really excited about it. It’s been a good while since I’ve been asked out to go dancing! Chivalry is not dead! Woooo!
For the occasion, I am wearing Tres Beau skin Harper on LeLUTKA‘s Raven head and with Tville‘s Glorious eyes. My locks are from Doux, their latest release: Danielle and I am sporting Tres Blah‘s Tori sweater while I’m getting ready!
I have kept my makeup simple but effective. Eyeshadow, liner, and blush all come in the makeup add-ons pack which you get with your LeLUTKA heads. Everything is modifiable, so I tinted the pink eyeshadow with a bit of yellow to make this lovely salmon color to go on my eyelids and I did the same with the beige lipstick from the HUD to make it a warm coral. on top of it, I have added the glitter mesh addition which comes with Raven for a bit of sparkle. I switched my lashes for the heavier ones which are also in the LeLUTKA HUD and there you are: instant party makeup! In case you had not realized it… unpack those extras that come with your LeLUTKA heads, they are REALLY worth it!
Since we’re going for some tango and salsa, I have put on this sexy lil’black number from Tetra, named Valentine. Tetra has recently been updating some of her items to Reborn as well, so go take a look if your previous purchases are among them if in the meantime you have switched bodies like I did! As it’s a bit cold out today, I put on the black fur Roksana stole from Antaya, which does not come in a Reborn edition, but this is the legacy one, and it just fits well. A girl should always keep her independence on a date, so I grabbed this little clutch from DDL to store a lipstick and my credit card and keys and on top of it being a useful item, it’s also stinkin’cute, right? My other accessories are from LaGyo, I snuck into Kustom9 cam sim earlier today and LaGyo has these lovely Ciao Bella hair flowers and earrings out. Since my date loves orange, and it’s really difficult to find orange dresses made for Reborn which also match my fashion taste, I instead focused on it for my jewelry. LaGyo‘s items are modifiable, so I could play a bit with them to get the right tint that I wanted!
And there we are, the full look. Just before heading out, I slipped on the Snowflake pumps from Baiastice, and practiced some moves on the tunes of Gotan Project. What do you think? Good? Not over the top? Let me know!
earlier today I was talking about poetry, and while looking up a certain poet, Wilder, I came upon the readpoetry.com site, where I found below poem from Christopher Poindexter. I loved it, and it became the inspiration for a pic that I was taking in Black Dragon. For the first time in a long while, I am back on that viewer, and I definitely need to practice with all the possibilities that this viewer offers.
what terrifies me most is not being able to make sense of my vulnerability my softness is my reward, but the world is cruel and constantly makes me question it
Today’s skin is the Holiday special from Avarosa, Raven, worn on LeLutka‘s Raven head. This head is most likely going to be my new default. She’s as classic as Avalon, but with a bit of an edge, like Zora. I am not wearing any make up on above pic, except for Avarosa‘s Lips addon nr. 8 because for some reason, the original lips on the Raven skin have a bit of a weird effect on my face and this addon is perfect to cover that!
Here you have her again, unedited this time, and instead of the addon, I am wearing the tooth layer from the same pack from Avarosa, which I normally don’t really like, but this one is perfect, especially for pictures. My hair is from Doux, Tzuyu, and the blouse and shirt I am wearing here is from the Baggy Overshirt set from Fashionably Dead. My eyes today are Tville‘s, from the Glorious eyes collection, and the Be Kind tattoo on my chest is from Alba.
Once fully dressed in Ascendant’s Carol Blazer and Vannie‘s Pantyhose Elite Diamond Backseam I added KC‘s Nedis pumps and Arnaud Haus‘ PEARL COLLAR BAR Necklace. I just added a little make up from Identity Faces’ Danedelion’s Collection and there we are, done for this elegant yet sexy look.
All items, except for the head, skin, hair and pantyhose are from this weekend’s various sales! Oh, and the elephant ear plant. That’s not from the sales either, but from Dust Bunny!
Hi people! I have taken a short break. The end of year crazy hit at work like, well crazy, and then all of a sudden it was Christmas and now it’ll be another 3 until this year comes to an end. I promised myself to take it totally easy until I go back to work in 2023, so here I am, lazing around with a nice coffee and my latest in-world purchases!
You must have been living under a rock if you haven’t heard that until December 30, LeLutka and 54 other awesome designers run their Holiday Special. with free heads for him and her, and tons of skins and other goodies! Most vendors will be set to group only, but hey… pretty much all of the participants, have also waived group fees for this special occasion! So today I am wearing Raven, the free head for women from LeLutka, and she has the potential to usurp the place as my default head from Avalon. I saw people mentioning Celtic features, and “Helena Christensen-like”, which, yep, I can see that. I am wearing her here with Amara Beauty‘s Raven skin and BarberYumYum‘s P18 hair, and the totally comfortable Winnie top and skirt from Offline. Also, I think my eyes are the Noel eyes from Avi-Glam, which is also one of the Holiday Special gifts, but I am not 1000% sure! However, go get the Noel eyes, they are pretty!
Getting ready for an early New Years Eve gathering, I decided to switch out the brows on the Raven skin for Nuve‘s Molly brows, because they are a bit stronger in my face, which I like. My eye liner is from Jack Spoon, The Medea (heart) liner 1 and I added some of Avi-Glam‘s Paris lashes, for extra volume. Also from Jack Spoon, from the Holiday Special, I am wearing the Blame it on the Boogie lipstick and then I added a bunch of other layers, The Biba kit beauty mark from Jack Spoon, and some contouring and blush from Deetalez.
My sweater is the Pom Star sweater from Fashionably Dead, which I’m using as an extra layer over my party dress, because after all, it’s cold outside! but as soon as I get out the door, I’m leaving that behind, put on my Yummy Holiday Party Set, which just is so lovely with Fashionably Dead‘s Slinky Party Dress. From Vannies, I am wearing these lovely fishnet tights with a seam and I slip on my Salvadori Strappy Leather Heeled sandals, grab my Natalia mini purse from Miura, which just fits my key and credit card, and off I go!
It’s not often that Kooqla releases a new skin, and I ran as fast as my lag-prone computer would allow me to The Jail Event when I saw there was a new one!
How pretty is she? Callista, what an appropriate name. means the Most Beautiful in Greek. Au naturel she’s youthful, and pretty, especially when worn on LeLUTKA‘s Briannon. My hair is by Rama salon, a new collab with Sintiklia, named Chelsea and available at Equal10 and my sweater is by Miss Chelsea (complete coincidence, I just liked what is written on the sweater: I like them real thick and sprucy)
In the dressed-up version, I tidied my Chelsea hair, and I picked Jack Spoon‘s Munster Winged eyeshadow, combined with Izzie‘s blush from her snow makeup set and my lipstick is by Suicidal Unborn from the Hesperia collection.
Quite a different look, right? Ready to go out for a dance (who am I kidding) I’m wearing Ison tonight, Juliana Cowl dress, with Mylie’s Bolero and Macey’s Glitter Strap heels. I added my Yummy Holiday party set jewelry and I’m all set. Just grabbing a small purse from DDL for my lipstick, credit card, and phone, and off I go!
what is your current favourite show? I am swept away by Tim Burton’s Wednesday series for Netflix. So I had to turn Graz into my version of Wednesday for the blog… It kind of started while still wearing yesterday’s outfit and remembering that, before I adjusted my shape to the wider mouth which I usually do like on my avie, the lips on Avalon with the Sol skin from Guapa had a more or less Wednesday-ish pout. So that was the start to see how far I could pull it off.
I think I make a cute Wednesday, wearing Guapa’s Sol skin on LeLUTKA‘s Avalon, with Izzie‘s smokey smeared mascara and Temizi’s chin cleft. My hair is called Wednesday (obviously) and is from Rama Salon, and I am wearing Violent Seduction’s regicide dress. I still think they pulled a shitty stunt at The Arcade, making the left shoe and the right shoe, as well as the left and right sock, and the left and right laces separate purchases, but I love this dress and it does make me think of the one Wednesday was wearing at the Rave’N
above is the unedited, raw from sl version, below, I did some minimal editing!
One of the brands I always buy during the weekend sales is Technofolk. I love their style, even though it is very much not me. I rarely wear their stuff, but I’m in awe with their aesthetics and creativity! So today I decided I will go out in a Technofolk outfit!
However, I have started the day with Guapa‘s Sol skin (weekend sale) on LeLUTKA‘s Avalon head. My hair is by Lueur (also a weekend sale item) and I am wearing COCO Design‘s Ribbed sweater, which is ALSO a weekend sale item. Yet,I am not feeling cheap :D. When I say weekend sale, it can be any of the many. I lose track!
However, with a fierce Technofolk outfit, I felt I needed a fierce makeup, and Identity Faces happens to have out the Love Me collection for the weekend sales, and the smokey glittery eye and glossy burgundy lips are perfect, especially when I added a little contour by Dotty’s Secret (Blended 2, 50%). Quite a difference, eh?
And there we are. 1:100 children are psychopaths? Sounds reasonable when you look at the amount of psycho (and socio-) paths in the world. I think it may actually be a little more!
So all items are by Technofolk here, from the coat and the shirt, to the pants and the harnesses. Only my Lena ankle boots, which you can’t see here, but fit the look very well, are from Gos
Christmas sweaters, yes! But I can’t get myself to buy ugly ones, despite the prizes at work for the “best” ugly christmas sweater! I’ll just pass on the free voucher, and buy my stuff!
But this one from Sorumin is actually cute, not ugly! With the bow on the front, I look like a gift. A really good gift if I may say so myself! I wouldn’t mind showing up in the office like this. I mean, I would not win the prize, but I’d feel good!! I’m wearing it here with Erratic‘s Kamryn pants and Gos‘Lena ankle boots. My Sun purse is from DDL, and my earrings are the Santa Inc giftie from Michan!!
For my face, I went with Nuve’s Regina skin on LeLUTKA‘s Avalon head. My hair is from Dura, NA23 and i bought it as TMD. it’s officially a guy hair, but I have never cared for that, it’s unrigged, so I can easily resize it to fit my girly head! For make up I went with Goreglam for both my lips and eye makeup. Aurora is the eyeshadow, and it comes in a set of lovely hues, and the lip balm is called Sonatine. Both are currently out at Santa Inc. This is also where I picked up my lashes from Michan and my eyes are Moonshine, by Avi-Glam. Still among my favorites because they make you look so soft, with the dilated pupils.
