Alice in the city

The location for these shots is Shin Akaba. It seemed right for this Fifty Linden Friday special from Deco, the Deathrattle Duster coat. It is sold with a male and female version. I spent rather more than 50 Linden on getting the necklace and earring set that I wanted, but the metals and jewels are all colour change and they are really nice textures. The cute glassess (see the last picture) with the little skull are also colour change, from December. I’m using two Olive Juice gun-toting poses that I got in an event a good while back – one (the leaping one) is “Lara (Croft)” and the other one is “Alice”.

Belated Valentine

I know it’s way past Valentine’s day, but today I happened to pick up a couple of freebies that were still out, one of which was this box of chocs. When you click it, it showers you with outsize chocolate hearts (see this picture). I felt the spring flowers and the fancy box made a nice contrast with my rather monochrome outfit. The jeans are not Mesh – I think they still look good!

When a woman ascends the stairs

It is year of the Snake, which is my birth sign, so I’m giving a particular welcome to this Chinese New Year. I’m celebrating with this lovely new Jiu-Li dress from Sascha. It has a curvy mesh base dress and then a variety of flexi skirts to add to it. I chose the mermaid tail skirts, as I think the flowing train matches well with the shape of the dress. Mandala recently brought out some hair ornaments (sticks and a hair corsage in 3 colours). They are copy, so I moved a copy of the red bejeweled corsage to make it a wrist corsage in combination with a Swallowtail bracelet.

Poses by Marukin


I missed getting the limited edition of the Princess dress by LpD, but I did get one of the regular colours (Black and White). In the end I just used the gorgeous fluffy net skirt (I love this sort of skirt), as I wanted to put it with something colourful, rather than the plain white mesh top it came with. I reached for several favourite items from Meena to give it a boho flavour. The picture below was taken on the installation by Yooma Mayo, Yes Giovanni, inspired by the Japanese story Night on the galactic railroad (picture of the whole thing here).
