You Can Do Magic

Wizarding Faire, brought to you by Mischief Managed Roleplay, will open its doors the 6th of October running through the 20th.   On my adventure through Diagon Alley, the world of magic decided that I would make a great professor, teaching of course Cajunology and Spicelusionry!

I’m one of those professors that the stodgy old professors look down on because my teaching methods are off the cuff and often deemed DANGEROUS.  Sure, wrestling the mighty Swampimarmillion and the fabled Gatorgorbius is dangerous, but if you don’t train the youngins right away to fear these deadly creatures, then how are they going to save the world!

So I decided I would take a stroll through the Diagon Alley and see if there were any threats, with my trusted sidekicks MISHcheif Chipspell and Hedgehorn McSharpletooth and Snowflufferkins Pigglesnout – who by the way is really the ancient rare white Crocodragon White Scale The Swamp Eater, I just happened to turn him into a fluffy cute critter with the Miamai Cutsium Perfectium spell long long ago.

We had to take lots of treats because all of us love sugar as you can see, but I think the broom shouldn’t have chocolate, it really affects his steering!  My trusted wand at my side, any threats that may have been lurking were too afraid to make an appearance, though now that I look at the image I put in my scrapbookius polaroidium there sure is a large creepy shadow following me.  I must investigate, for the safety of the event of course!

We’ll Ride On Bicycles

The Autumn season has brought about so many events, I can’t keep up!  What a grand adventure it has been through, learning of new events, new designers, seeing amazing creations from the designers we love, and creators coming back from hiatus to give us new things to enjoy.

It certainly has been a busy month, and the reprieve into my imagination has been a welcome one to de-stress and keep connected to my inner child.

Many times I have an idea for a photo and end up going a different route, or I struggled to get it just how I envision it, however the one below came to me and worked out just how I planned.  It started with the search for a rainbow pwnie named Dash.  It is no secret I seek out all rainbow things for my beloved Gabriella.  If it is rainbow, I am likely going to try to get it, buy it, empty my pockets of all coinage to get it to give to her.  Such was the case with this round of the Arcade and the lovely whimsical pwnies from silentsparrow.

Once Dash was achieved, I had quite a few of his friends, and they decided I needed to be taken on an adventure with other companions.  That journey had a soundtrack which led off with one of my favorite songs that always makes me think of my better half.  (I have linked the song below in case you are curious)

“We’ll sleep on roof tops 
We’ll ride on bicycles 
Baby, we’ll get married 
Don’t you want to, sweetie?”

Designers United opened at midnight last night and will run until October 4th.  The theme is Surrealism, and wow did the designers do a great job of it!  My hair is from INK and I am loving the style, it was perfect for my adventure.

My brilliantly created boots are from Valiant which is one of the first shops I used to frequent when I first began my adventures in SecondLife.  When designer Wavie Haller began creating new mesh items for the Valiant & Co. brand I was ecstatic!  The boots are brilliant, with a massive texture HUD that gives you limitless possibilities.  You can grab these at the Liaison Collaborative now, as well as the skin I am wearing from his skin line [K]lean.  This is Adrian and he is a bit more mature than the prior Tyler release, with lovely tonality and exceptional quality.  I had not taken Tyler off since getting it, but Adrian is even more perfect for my permanent look.

I hope you are enjoying this event filled month and were able to find all those rares and wonders that make your SLife even more fun.

Collabor88 January 2013!

That 8th sneaked up on me this new year, but it has proven to be a tremendously impressive Collabor88 thus far!  Kicking off 2013, the blogger team of Collabor88 were honored with creating this months palette for the designers.  With rich emeralds, golds and hues of copper and soft woods, it definitely has a crisp new feel to it which is just perfect for a new beginning.

I was very pleased to see a lovely skybox by PILOT this round which I am leaving on my sim for good.  The simplicity of it is just perfect and the beamed ceiling adds something completely fresh yet classic to the structure.  The tones are warm, inviting and offer a great canvas to brighten it up or keep it tranquil.  Hardwood floors and bay windows add to the crisp clean feel, making this a structure with endless possibilities.


Collabor88 January

Cheeky Pea creative genius Isla Gaelach never ceases to impress me with her furnishings and decor.  The Ansel set for Collabor88 is inline with this lovely fresh, crisp feel for the new year.  With an emphasis on lighting, subtle to charming, the tonal qualities of the furnishings and decor truly bring to mind an Earthen feel, which for me equals cozy and safe.  The exceptionally detailed atrium is rather mesmerizing and brings life to this room in a rather magical way.  Rustic tables to place old well worn and loved books, candles and the like speak of a home that is lived in rather than a museum to just admire.    The seating come in two types; PG & ADULT, and each packed with tons of smooth lush animations.   Original mesh at its absolute best, a staple in Cheeky Pea creations.

My favorite item from this round of Collabor88 is the Intrigue Co.’s Oz mobile.  The rainbow makes me think of my Gabriella, and the whimsical quality simply gave me a reason to grin.  I will be relocating the mobile to a very special room that is being decorated this month for a very special collaboration between Gabriella and myself.  More on that in the weeks to come!

Have a wonderful week and be sure to set aside some time to shop this months Collabor88.

Hello October!

It is the1st day of October!  Yet with 105 degree weather in California, you would think it was mid-Summer, the weather has been absolutely a scorcher.  It’s a good thing I can have my Autumn weather in SecondLife or I might go crazy.   With a new month brings a new round of events and as usual there are some amazing finds!

The Men’s Dept. will open on October 5th for this new collection.  The tattoo I am wearing can be purchased during the event, it is by Vestigium, high detailed and very life like.

I paired it up with my purchases from faMESHed which opened its doors to the public today and it is full of mesh greatness yet again.  I picked up these great jeans from Sleepy Eddy, with great deep pockets and slight lift to the cuff, I won’t be taking these off any time soon.

My hair is another great item from faMESHed from Alice Project called Aiden.  I have been hoping for mesh hair from Alice Project for awhile now.  Every time I go to faMESHed I see the great styles and pout because there are none for us guys, well no more pouting, that’s all changed!  A great start to October, hope yours proves the same.
