So the Arcade is gearing up for another round that starts December 1st at midnight. judging by this shopping guild the December 2013 Arcade looks pretty amazing. A few of my favorites include the Pop Boots from Gizza, the Sloth ht from 8f8, the MishMish penguin avatars, and all the items from Shi to name a few. Earlier today I stopped by and picked up a few things and thought it would be fun to put a look together. Once this look was done the song “Royals” kept playing on repeat in my head. It could be the coat, or the crown, or the bad ass gloves but what ever it is I dig this look.
To start off with the Gacha fun I picked up these Frosting Coats and Tin Mitts from Rachel Breaker. The coats are amazing and look like over sized fur coats. At first I was a little worried I could not unisex these but it turns out they work pretty darn good with male avatars. The Tin Mitts have to be my favorite item from Rachel Breaker this round. They are fully mesh gloves with this cool armor like detail. The silver one is my favorite but I am going to try to collect them all because they are just that good. I think at this point is when “Royals” started playing in my head so I threw on a crown from Ladies who Lunch. In this set there is a grown called Queen Bee that would be perfect for the whole them of the song (“You can call me queen bee”) but it’s Rare and well… So I went with the just as pretty Dark Queen crown in black.

So, a few events have started this past weekend that I think you should know about. I was lucky enough to have a blogger pass to both of these and I would like to share what I have found.

One of the things I suck at the most
(other than styling) is coming up with blog titles. I always get a look ready, take the pictures, edit the pictures (which is not that hard since I don’t do much to them) and …shit. I have to think of a blog title. If you look at my blogs, all of them, a lot of them have the word day in them. Or they are similar. Like a fine day, or summer’s day or day I slept with your mom. But regardless, I have a look for you.
Every time I do one of these looking using elements that are not typical (most of the times it’s hair) I always feel hear someone say “They will all laugh at you.”. Have you ever seen the movie Carrie (if not go see it) you know the part where Carrie’s mom is trying to stop Carrie from going to the prom. That is me and my blog. Except unlike Carrie I don’t have magical powers to kill people’s asses if they laugh.
But enough of my oddness. I want to talk about the hair since it is such a big part of the look. (get a better view under the cut). A lot of the times in SL, we are users have to tint things to make them perfect. This was one of the main reasons why I was a little worries about mesh and hair. A lot of designers of hair do not have Gabieglam Ginger. So I have to tint a lot of shit. One of those brands is Boon. I love Boon, it’s a great hair store and I want to have babies with all the dreadlock styles. But I am not in love with the red pack. LUCKLY Boon allows you to tint. To get GabieGlam Ginger, I bought the blonde pack and tinted the blonde option to this color. Same thing with the hairbase which you have to wear to make the style work.

For once, I have nothing to say. So here is a look I made today using the Tableau Vivant item for this round of feMESHed and other things I enjoy. I hope you like.
I have a new addiction to long mesh hair. Unlike normal long hair, it moves with your body, doesn’t look odd if your avatar was to I don’t know throw it’s head back. However most of these long hairs that are used and made by women. More often than not, the hair looks great from the front. From the side, you see the curve of where there would be boobs and it cuts into the back. However, I love these hairs and will still buy them.
One of the things I love in life is body art. I like learning about tattoos and why people get them and have thought about getting a few of them myself. I have four tattoos planned in my head, I even know where they would go. But if I am really honest, I would never get them. One, I don’t enjoy pain. I don’t see myself sitting in a chair letting someone cause my body pain for hours. Two, I am in college currently to become a teacher and I doubt any parent wants their child’s teacher to have a sleeve of Alice falling into Wonderland. Lucky for me Secondlife allows me to explore my need for tattoos.
I am the boy with the mystery, where I come from is unknown. I walk the streets alone at night and follow where the wind is blown.
A few days ago, I went to a Fashion Show. I don’t remember the brand at the top of my head but this is the outfit I wore. The last few looks on this blog have been ones I saved and just updated. This one was the first in a long time that I created from “scratch”. I personally love it due to the harness of the leather jacket and the daintiness of the under shirt.
