Fuel

Give me fuel, give me fire, give me that which I desire…

Give Me Fuel

Fire she has, but FUEL is needed for that fire. Not only is it the name of her new jeans, but Tessa thought it would be a completely appropriate title for this blog entry! Being the inimitable Tessa, her wish was granted. I believe the dragon has found herself a new favourite clothing store, oh yes…

The fuel injected scoop:
~Fuel jeans, Tribal skull half-tank, and 1 Percenter Gemma biker jacket: all from Razorblade Jacket (RAWR.)
~Boys & Girls 49 hair in black from Dura
~Emma skin in ‘peche’ from Essences (at The Dressing Room Fusion)
~Lashes No.6 from Miamai
~Promise Eyes in Starfall from IKON
~Icon Makeover eyes and lips from Mock Cosmetics
~Metal Free Elven Ears from SLink

This Way Comes

“By the pricking of my thumbs, something wicked this way comes…”

I’m not about to argue semantics with William Shakespeare, seeing as how he’s dead and all, but he really didn’t paint MacBeth’s witches with an attractive brush, did he? I suppose in his defense it’s not like he was the only one to conjure (haha) up images of craggy crones cloaked in black, stooped over boiling cauldrons. It’s an image perfect for costume parties. And while black might be the preferred clothing colour choice nowadays- at least for drama- I do prefer to glam things up a little bit while trying to keep up witchy appearances.

This Way Comes

Decorating helps set up a proper seasonal mood, too! I look forward all year to putting out the Halloween finery. So go forth and dress in your spiderweb tights and witchy buckle shoes, adorn your homes with gravestones and scarecrows, and if you happen to see spectral things dancing through your yard, just out of the corner of your eye, just remember that the veil is thinning…

Dirty Old Town

I think I can stop hoping that summer is still trying to stick around. The weather has definitely changed around here- it seems to have gone from warm and sunny to grey and wet overnight! All in all, though, I don’t mind too much…while a spell of of warmth and sun is always welcomed, I do so enjoy autumn. The leaves turn brilliant colours, the earth is well hydrated once more, and I get to overdose on all things pumpkin while snuggling up in front of my fireplace.

The only thing that leaves me a bit flat is the dullness of the city. When the skies are grey and there’s rain in the air, there no denying that all that concrete does nothing to stir the imagination. That may be why red is such a favourite colour to wear this time of year, because it is so delightfully defiant of all that grey! Black and red are a nice contrast to the monochrome, and cooler temperatures are a nice excuse to dust off the hats and boots.

“I left my love, by the gassworks wall
Dreamed a dream, by the old canal
I kissed my girl, by the factory wall
Dirty old town, dirty old town…”

I Dream In Colour

I Dream In Colour

Perhaps I do, perhaps I don’t…it’s difficult to say for sure because I rarely remember them! But it amuses me greatly to think that they could look something like this. Just imagine- images so colourful you can almost taste them. And pretty things from my favourite stores certainly help in giving them life! If you haven’t yet done your round through the Taste The Rainbow hunt, I would recommend it. It’s a small hunt, as Second Life hunts go, so if you’re like me and are easily overwhelmed with massive grid-wide hunts then this small ‘taste’ of a hunt is sure to satisfy you.

The colourful scoop:
Kalina top from The Plastik [Taste The Rainbow hunt]
Metallic lipstick in Pink from Pink Fuel [Taste The Rainbow hunt]
Alyx skin in Vanilla from Pink Fuel
Fight hair in Blonde 07 by elikatira
Glitterotica eyeliner in Heathers Glitter from Mock Cosmetics
Jemma abalone earrings from Sn@tch
Wild Full Thick lashes from Maxi Gossamer
Pearl eyes in Vineyard from Poetic Colors

Bright Side Of The Dark Side

Light. Dark. Yin. Yang. Ethereal and pale with an edgy side, or dark and primly demure.

Or perhaps everything in between? Luminous as the sunset. Only you will know for sure.

You can be all of the above…embrace the mystery, I say. Keep ’em guessing! With skins from The Plastik and outfits from FATEplay- now available at the We ❤ Roleplay event- it is all so very easy. The event is monthly, but why wait? Head on over and begin your own bit of mystery!

“So today were gonna…take the time to show ya
The br- br- bright side of the dark side…
Only think you oughta
No, you really gotta…See the br- br- bright side of the dark side…”

I Can See Clearly Now

“…the rain is gone
I can see all obstacles in my way
Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind
Gonna be a bright, bright sunshiny day…”

I Can See Clearly Now

I may not have been praying for rainbows, but I sure am enjoying the bright sunshiny days…they pave the way for bright clothes and sunshiny accessories! It also makes for some interesting experiments with light settings. Hope you don’t mind my fiddling around! Thanks for peeking.

Armadillery

Unfortunately, I haven’t Been Through The Desert On A Horse With No Name, but I can at least find appropriate places in Second Life to pose as though I had! And while he may not be a horse, Armadillo there is still a charming companion. If you haven’t been to the Baja Norte sim, you should probably go sometime. There are quite a few spots to take some snazzy photos.
