I love this soft pastel pink, it's a colour which is almost there.. so delicate, I picked this dress up at the dressing room, I love the layers on the sleeves which add interest to the plain look of the dress I had to adjust the skirt as usual. it's not scripted so be careful , it's too easy to bugger it up.

Glam! Summer Makeup - Tattoo Layer

Sakura Skin

From Suede Design Studio

How I love the tattoo layer, your skins just have a new lease of life, so many choices, its so great, so these soft beautiful pastel shades are perfect for spring dresses, are the new release from Glam!

I tried them with several of my skins they are a perfect fit with all, so I was very pleased.
I am previewing them for you wearing my Pacific Crisis skin Sakura from Glam Affair, keeping in with my Japanese theme for this week.

Yellow is a colour I never wear in second life or in real life, although I have picked up a soft pastel sweater every so often, but I always put it back on the shelf.

But on my tour of the Japanese stores people have been recommending to me, this 1960's boho dress just called out to me. I had a little day dream of driving my little moped around the streets of Milan , calling out to friends sitting in the sunshine in open air cafes as I drive by, but as you can see, my little moped is *Kaput* dammit.

Here I am trying to fiddle with the .. whateverbit this is.* or maybe I am trying to hotwire it cause it is'nt really mine... hehe

I am also wearing my new fav shoes even though I know they have been out for a while, Moxie from Maitreya, I just love colour change, and I like socks in high heels.

So anyway I gave up trying to get my moped to go and just sat on the pannier and sulked.

Japanese Designers

From Suede Design Studio

I have been buying a lot of things recently from the many Japanese events, going on to help with raising funds, so over the new few days I will get around to blogging everything I bought, I must admit one of my favourite purchases has been these petals from Runo Runo, they come with a hud with preset poses. I also am wearing Glam Affairs Sakura Skin from the fund raiser, in these photographs

Guy wears Red Mint

On The Road
From Suede Design Studio

What is the feeling when you're driving away from people, and they recede on the plain till you see their specks dispersing? -it's the too huge world vaulting us, and it's good-bye. But we lean forward to the next crazy venture beneath the skies.”

Jack Kerouac

So here is my venture to the no-man's land of *Guy* land. I have on a great skin from Red Mint and a great T-shirt with a unusual skull print, I love the odd eyes on the skull,actually there are a series of Skull tshirts in Red Mint, all pretty cool, some skulls are definitely not human.

Also there is a male skin line, I really was impressed by the work on the body, I don't think it is easy to make realistic hairy guys, some avatars are sporting a rug on their bodies, but not my *Guy* no he is cool and sexy with just the right amount of testosterone. I really think more men might find this skin a good alternative to the bigger brands.

I also played around with my location a bit and decided on Tableau, which is very cool and fits totally with my Kerouac theme.

Arcana - Windlight Study

I saw this sim featured on another blog called Avatars in Motion, and as I am always looking for cool places to visit and photograph, I am very interested any blogs which featured the landscapes of Second Life.

Below are a selection of photographs I took on Arcana, I noticed there were scripted beams of light in several places in Arcana,and I decided I liked the field locations best. Now, what I really wanted was for the rainbow to maintain its colour blends, in quite a lot of the windlight settings, it just blurred or bleached out, so I had to go for darker colour environments, but I do think they turned out pretty nice and different settings give such an atmosphere to your work.It's almost more fun than fashion...coughs...oops did I say that out loud..

The ZED Card - Dreams Requiem

From Suede Design Studio

I saw this amazing avatar and just had to take a photo or two.
Dreams told me that her incredible outfit was from Bare Rose of all places and her face paint and hair was made by herself.

I am sure you agree she looks excellent.

From Suede Design Studio

It is such a visual feast I don't really have much to say apart from click on the photo to make it big, so you can see how complex and incredible her outfit was.

Tabitha from Has Been

From Suede Design Studio

Okay I have to be honest, here, I have no idea when I was sent this dress, I love receiving things to blog, but my inventory is a bit of mess I try to get everything into a folder I made called

* thingstoblog*

But sometimes I miss things, well anyway I found it now and I was very pleased with the beautiful colours and the whole look of the dress and the cute garters, the skirt is 3 layers of prims, very nicely done, dark purple and black semi-transparent lace, give a very rich effect and the detail on the bodice with the laces and contrasting patterned little waistcoat is just divine.
From Suede Design Studio

This dress is perfect for role play, I was thinking with a great hat and some boots, I could have done a wicked Pirate Queen Post., maybe for next time.

Here I am waiting for my love Sam the Sailor to come back from 40 days and 40 nights at sea and bring me... a Fillet'O'Fish. Which reminds me on British TV back when I was a nipper, I used to watch Captain Pugwash..look him up on Youtube.. he has an interesting crew.. giggles.

Ecru - 52 weeks of Colour

From Suede Design Studio

I love all shades of creme and ecru, as it is a very soft feminine look. I saw this lovely top from Indie rose, it comes on all layers with a plain white top you can wear underneath for layering or actually just by itself, which is a bonus freebie in my opinion.

So I loved the print on this top, I really like Amaryllis in real life, and the flowers really remind me of them.

I also have trousers which match the top, but I decided it was all too plain and so I swapped out the top for a corset I have from Chic Boutique, as I remember it was a giftie, but I got it a very very long time ago, this designer makes her items, transfer, my personal preference so you can keep them forever. I also splashed out and bought sandals from Maitreya, because being the colour scripted change whore I am , I cannot resist things with options.

Henna...Indulge Me

From Suede Design Studio

So this is just me messing around trying out new poses that I have, and a hair I bought on impluse buy, Oh and some boots, I found in my inventory which I don't remember buying.

I don't have many Red Queen styles, I always try them and then think ahhhh...not me.. but this one.. I really like, probably cause the Bandana is colour change.

From Suede Design Studio

So anyway, One thing I did want to mention about Opium where I picked up the boots, is that it offers you permissions, you can choose between copy/mod and transfer. I love that, please please let more designers try it.. I think it is a great business model.

The boots are scripted and you can change them to a variety of colours and straps and base and heel are all scripted so you can have boots for every season.

Lime and Mary

From Suede Design Studio

So this is a bit of a combo post, I am trying to do my entry for the Lime week of Luna's 52 weeks of colour and also profile my take on the new giftie skin from Glam Affair.

When I put the dress on, I thought immediately of Diana Ross and the Supremes in the 60's performing in those evening dresses with bob haircuts.. so pretty and so I went for that look in my photos.I really love this dark skin, I often find that darker shades are kinda uneven in places, but this skin is very nice.. smooth the shadows and highlights are just perfectly done. I really didnt see anything about the skin, which I was disappointed by.

I often visit Virtual Harlem, when I am looking for locations for a period shoot, it has a wonderful 1920's feel to it and lots of atmosphere, and as you can see in the back ground *The Cotton Club* if you wander around this sim, there are quite a few photo locations which are really nice, espically with the windlight settings on fog or similar, it gets a very, smokey look. Works very well. :)
