Chic Androgyny

I managed to find time to do a bit of shopping and get a blog look organised…..AND BLOG IT!

I’ve been in a bit of an androgynous mood lately, gearing up for the next round of Genre, and it just so happens that *COCO* released a nice tailored suit just for this look at this months round of FaMESHed.  There is a male version of the same suit at this months round of The Mens Dept as well. The suit is made with the left arm to look as though the hand is in the pocket (not part of the pose) and comes with a glove to wear on the right hand.

Chic Androgyny

I wanted to find a sexy pair of boots to wear with my new suit and I found a new to me store, via Lourdes on plurk, called David Heather.  I’ve heard they are a re-brand of Cashmere and Keane (another brand I’ve not heard of before) and I have to say their boots are to die for!  You can find these boots at The Seasons Story along with my cute little cat friend and the sexy skin I am wearing from La Petite Morte.  Voshie, owner of La Petite Morte, makes such nice skins and is so not talked about enough.  Even though the skin is a female skin, wearing it with the right clothing and hair, and with the no cleavage version, it makes a gorgeous andro look; in my opinion.  Seriously, go check out her store!

Slave to the Darkside

I’ve become a slave to Hell.  Come to the darkside with me, it’s toasty warm. (NSFW WARNING)

For the next month or so I won’t be blogging as much as usual.  My RL is taking a bit of a busy turn with specialist appointments almost every week which are going to leave me rather drained.  As well as being busy in RL, my partner and I are in the process of building a new sim.  We’ve moved our stores to a full prim sim and are busy designing and building.  I can’t wait until it’s finished so I can show you what has captured my soul, and sleep, lately.

Slave to the Darkness

Before I leave you all to dive back into the firey depths of hell, let me talk about my new eye make up for a moment.  The creator behind the store Ama. recently took on a make up idea that I had shared with plurk in hopes someone would make it.  Amadeo Dubratt whipped up the Patch Keeper make up in what seemed like minutes.  If you haven’t checked out the store before I highly suggest it, especially if you are after something a little on the wild side *eyebrow waggles* there are marks/makeups/scratches for all occasions, for guys and girls.

Bloggers Challenge – Your SLife in Photos

I did this pic 3 years ago where I collaged one photo from each year I had been in SL.  I was lucky enough to have photos that reached back that far.  Earlier today a friend on plurk shared a noob photo of himself and I dug through my archived pictures to find my ‘Life and Laughs of Arora’ collage I had made to share with him.  That was when I realised yet another three years had passed.  So I did a quick update on it.

Aroras Life Updated

Can you span your SLife in photos?  Do you have any that reach as far back as your first days as a noob?  I would love to see some collages of others lives showing just how much they are changed over the years.  Share your SLife with me.

Genre – South Asia

This round of Genre’s theme is South Asia and there are so many gorgeous items up for grabs. I just want to say first up that I apologise if I have put together my look and it is offensive to anyone cultural backgrounds.  It was one thing I was wary of as a designer when I thought about designing for this round myself. I liked my items and thought they looked pretty together but if I have worn something that is traditional and not supposed to be worn with the other please forgive my ignorance.

Genre S. A. 1

This gorgeous swing comes with couples and singles poses and I love the bright bold colours of the cushions.  It’s also available in black and white wood and the swing is animated to swing back and forth if you want it to, as well as the ability to change the textures a the click of a button.

Genre S. A. 2

The Wall unit from Mirage is a delight.  I love the little alcove wall piece with the candles and hanging lantern.  The one problem I had taking the photos was not having a man prop available as all poses are for couples.  So grab your wall unit, grab a significant other and have some awesome cuddle time.

Genre S. A. 3

The final piece is a garden fountain by Frogstar.  I love all the knick-knacks and furniture that come out of this store so much.  The water in the garden is animated as is the little fountain streams.  There’s no sits in it but plenty of space to places animated cushions around it for sitting and cuddling.  My outfit is also all from Genre.  There was so much to choose from that I think I changed clothes five times before settling on this look.

A Secret Affair

Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore,
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
As of someone gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door.
`’Tis some visitor,’ I muttered, `tapping at my chamber door -
Only this, and nothing more.’ ….Edgar Allan Poe

The Secret Affair 1

The Secret Affair opens on the 15th of this month and it’s going to be full of all things with melancholy elegance.  This round’s theme is The Raven and I wanted to share a couple of items that you can find there.

The Secret Affair 2

[Fetch] has a full set of furniture for your chamber room.  The Sylvia set includes everything you see in the picture and comes in a PG or adult version.  The lounger has a tonne of singles poses to choose from.  It was hard deciding which one to use for my blog pic.  The vanity stool also comes with a stack of different poses to choose from.

The Secret Affair 3

La Petite Morte’s India skin is one that I love.  It’s just the right shade of pale for me.  You’ll be able to pick up the India – Raven skin with three different make up styles as well as matching eyelashes which I think are just so unique and really set that make up off perfectly.

The Secret Affair 4

`Be that word our sign of parting, bird or fiend!’ I shrieked upstarting -
`Get thee back into the tempest and the Night’s Plutonian shore!
Leave no black plume as a token of that lie thy soul hath spoken!
Leave my loneliness unbroken! – quit the bust above my door!
Take thy beak from out my heart, and take thy form from off my door!’
Quoth the raven, `Nevermore.’ ….Edgar Allan Poe

Pretty Pretty Cactus

I found a new store the other day, and while it’s geared towards the furry peeps of Second Life I did find a few things that I will be using on my human self.  However I couldn’t pass up these adorable cactus ears and tail.  I wanted to put together an outfit with it and I felt like I had to do an outside my norm post.  So I went…..green.

Pretty Pretty Cactus 1

The UTILIZATOR Kemono comes with a furry head, but I decided to team it up with an anime head I have from them as well.  The head is fully customisable with tinting and fantasy skin tones so it was easy to match it to the green of the Kemono body.  The hair comes free with the body pack (with an included hud to change to a variety of colours and streak options) as do the bra, socks and panties which you can find in a box called Bonus Items.  There is the option to have human feet and furry feet and it also comes with shoes.  For the cost of the product you sure do get your monies worth.
