I Love You More Today Than Yesterday Part 2.

One of the great things about SecondLife is that you can have a date that you put on pause.  Sometimes, there is just a need to halt what you are doing, and with SecondLife you can easily resume your plans where real life makes that a bit harder.  Nothing beats real life, but hands down time spent together, no matter where it is, that’s priceless.

Gabriella and I resumed our Saturday date, finally getting into the ARCADE Gacha Event!  Right away when we arrived, we had a plan.  Start on the right and go clockwise back to the entrance.

Yay! We BOTH Made It In At The Same Time!

Right away Mrs. Raynier was lucky!  She often will hear me groan and pout about a gacha that I just can not seem to get the RARE for, and after 268 tries I finally give up.  Well Gabby will waltz up to the machine and on her first try get the RARE! And I thought my name meant luck.  It is a win win because she always gives me the prize and a kiss, it doesn’t get any better than that.

I really really want the rare, Pookie! But I tried 38490821 times already and it won’t give it up!

After emptying our pockets and her bra of our monies, we headed outside to enjoy the ocean air and cool afternoon.  We found this great old school photo booth and of course had to take pictures.

Say Camembert!

Overall it was a great time together which we both needed.  Life gets busy, but the need to be close and spend time with our loved ones doesn’t always understand that.  Do your best to make time to spend together, with a friend, your significant other, family, even if its just a half hour, it’ll do you good!

Vintage Fair 2012 Preview-LOSTANGEL Poses: A Thing For Redheads

One of my favorite pose props for Vintage Fair is the Detective’s Office and Dark Alley from LOSTANGEL Poses.  I love film noir and old detective movies so it is no surprise I had to purchase the two sets from LOSTANGEL Poses.  With the help of Detective Blackheart and Mrs. Blackheart, this scene came to life.

It was a gritty day, the kind that left you just as dank and dirty as an alley cat after a hard rain.  The city was agitated, you could hear it in the slamming windows, doors and rattling car keys.  My coffee was stale but hot, and I would need it with the night I had ahead of me.  A gunshot, screeching tires and more slamming doors bolted tight.  Good idea, you never knew who could be on the other end of the door.
The click of heels, soft and even, the walk of a woman resounded down the thin hallway to my office.  A scent mixed with the pipe I was smoking, utterly feminine and floral, like roses on a rainy Irish night.  I’d been in this city too long, waxing nostalgic about my beloved Ireland.  The knob turned and on a squeaky hinge the door open.  That’s when she walked in.

Noir Amour

Noir Amour

Legs for days and miles of curves, she was stunning.  Her striking green eyes rivaled my own and made me think that much more of home.  A redhead.  I had a weakness for redheads, and this one in particular had been haunting my dreams since we met.  The way she moved was sinful, fluid and feminine.  Not even the flickering television light could steal away her beauty.

Noir Amour

Rising, I watched her watching me.  She had a way in which she would look at me, as if she could read my thoughts and desires.  No one knew me as she did so in many ways she could read my mind.  I could read hers too, it was the way we were, two sides to the same coin.

The case I was working had me full of piss and vinegar, a grumpy bear she had taken to calling me.  I knew a lecture was coming, the late nights, my bad mood, the endless paperwork and all leads winding me up at a dead end.

Noir Amour

Sure enough, my all work no play had earned the ire of my fiery redhead.  I liked the way her eyes sparkled when she was mad, but even more-so, the smile when she knew she had won.

I would deny her nothing, she was my rare rose and I her protective bear.  The case file could wait, at least a few hours for if I gained more of her ire, they’d be hiring a detective to find my body.

Spring Into Color

I am honored to be participating in Linden Labs Fresh Fashion: A Spring Fashion Event which will be taking place from March 5th to March 8th. My submission for the event focuses on springing your wardrobe to life. You can find the blog entry here as well as below.

I am also discussing a few topics in the Fashion Forums. Come on by and participate, I’d love to see you there!

Spring, a time to wash away the monochrome hues in a refreshing rain of color.  We see the tapestry around us turn from gloomy grays and spark alive with vibrant pastels, reds, blues, and greens.  Flowers bursts forth from the land and paints the rolling hills with  their blooming palette of color.

As the world washes away Winter’s grays, so should we do the same to our wardrobes.  Don’t let the layers bog you down, peel them away and let the colors cover you like they are covering the Spring time season.

Spring is a time for activities, from baby showers, weddings, holidays, barbecues, parties and vacations.  You need to gear up for such occasions, which is a perfect opportunity to make a few “go to” outfits  so you are prepared for all of the Springtime activities.

Here are a few looks that I put together for this Spring.  I normally wear a great deal of red, as it is my favorite color.  This Spring I wanted to embrace more colors into my wardrobe.

My first outfit is one I put together to wear for the following:

  1. a date at the docks
  2. the carnival
  3. a barbecue
  4. sailing
  5. any outdoor gathering

Spring Outfit 1

The second outfit is more fitting for the evening or night-time.  Whether you are going out with friends or on a date with that special someone, a little bit of layers can dress up a casual outfit like this.  Spring nights can be chilly, a jacket helps as it is not only an option to keep warm but to turn very casual into casual dressy.  I love to wear bow-ties, this gingham print reminds me of Spring no matter the color which made it perfect for this outfit.

Spring Outfit 2

My final outfit is more formal.  This would not be appropriate to wear to a Spring wedding however, so please keep that in mind.  Unless the wedding party requests you wear white, you should never do so.  White is clean and classy, you can put any color with it from a shirt to the accessories.  Do not be afraid to mix your color palette.

Spring is vibrant and lively, your wardrobe should be too!  Most importantly, have fun with your clothing.  They are an extension of you, your personality and quirks, the image you project is the one that comes to life when you embrace what you enjoy wearing.  Enjoy your Spring!

If you read my blog or have interacted with me over the past year, you likely are aware that I fight a battle with chronic pain every day.  That battle has been proving more difficult as each day passes.  I am never pain free, haven’t been for over 8 years.  The pain increases often, making it ten times worse than the normal pain I am in all the time.  When those bouts of pain spikes happen, they can last for an hour to weeks.

Right now I am struggling to keep fighting.  Every day I wake up I have to put on my game face, try to manage simple tasks and accept defeat when my pain is too much for me.  I’ve come to look at my pain as my worse enemy, my constant adversary.  This adversary wants to defeat me, and often it does.  It robs me of many of my simple pleasures in life.  I am unable to draw, animate, paint or take photographs in real life.  This is due to the fact my pain doesn’t allow me to move in the same way I used to, and my hands shake horribly to the point I drop things often.

It is a difficult journey for it often feels as if I am fighting against myself.  For how do you fight that which is housed within your own being?  Battling ones self is indescribably heartbreaking and it takes great willpower to keep lifting your head off the battlefield.

Why am I telling you all this?  Because I needed to get it out, I needed to express it in some way.  So I did it visually as best that I could today during a high pain bout.  They are not the best images, but they express what I am feeling.  I am a fighter, and despite the fact my pain often wins, I will never let it completely defeat me.

Cuts You Up And Spits You Out

When I first came to Second Life my style swayed to the Gothic and Victorian look.  One of the shops that fulfilled that style for me was Lapointe & Bastchilde.  Paul Lapointe’s designs are beautiful, rich in tapestry and color and have a sense of life to them.

During my evolving fashion discovery in Second Life I sought out more styles that were like my own in real life.  As you have often seen, short pants or long shorts with polos, cardigans, T’s, leather and bow-ties.

As many designers evolve as well, Paul Lapointe kicked up his creations to the next level, reaching out to more than the Gothic & vampire community by creating the S’Wear line-urban street wear that keeps getting better and better.  You have seen me in his shoes, leather pants and the new leather jackets.  I last blogged the highly detailed and utterly realistic leather vest, but today I slipped on his newest creation, a full leather aviator jacket.  The detail is superb, you can practically smell the leather!

Perusing my favorite blogs, I discovered from Style Yakuza that Airflow had released a new cap & hair.  This was the perfect item to add to this lush heavy leather jacket.  Now to find some back alley to play craps in and maybe some trouble.

Events Abound!

One of the great things about Second Life are all the events that take place.  From weeklies, monthlies and yearlies, there is always something for you to quench your shopping thirst.

I had some catching up to do on the current events, enjoying exploring old and new.  One of the things that I as a male avatar do not do, is discount an event as female only.  In doing so, I would have missed out on many things that even though not labeled as unisex, definitely are!

Events I explored this week:

collabor88 – Changed and updated on the 8th of each month.

The Nest Gachas -The Nest Labor Day Sidewalk Sale & Gatcha Event ends Friday so hurry!

The Wash Bi-Annual Cart Sale – Sept. 7-28. You’ll find items from over 75 designers and creators with all items priced at L$10 or less.
