#83 New look Memory – raw

You don’t know this new me;

I put back my pieces,

differently.                                                                                              @HighPoetsSociety

We can do this every day in Second Life – BUT I don’t.

I change my avie a little, to fit outfits or to achieve a certain ‘costume’, but big changes I only make maybe once a year, or less. I need to feel like me in my avie.

This time the change is into a mesh head, which you would think is no big deal – they have been around so long now that the next step – Bento- is already here. I have joined the ranks of folk who appear as detached floating parts before assembling into something resembling human form.  It has felt like a big step for me – but strangely many of my friends didn’t even notice!

These photos were quickly shot in Coastal Afternoon WL setting and cropped – to send in for a casting that I’d left till the last minute.

#62 Alive in the spotlight

I find I like the spotlight for a very brief period of time… and I sort of need it. But then, the minute that it’s done, I have to sort of go hide.

#53 Stayin Alive

STAYIN ALIVE  was one of five songs the Bee Gees wrote specifically for Saturday Night Fever. Like the film, the song is about much more than dancing and having a good time. It deals with struggle and aspiration; making your way in the world even after you’ve been kicked around

Disco night – theme events are a lot of fun in any life – and sometimes you come across an outfit that is versatile enough to be worn in several settings. This Jumpsuit from Ghee was for sale at the Fashion For Change event and is now available in the Ghee main store.

#45 Yearbook Photo – Memory who?

#42 Fascinating work

I like work: it fascinates me. I can sit and look at it for hours.

Jerome K. Jerome

What use is a business suit in Second Life? I pondered this as I tried on this KITJA suit that I had walked past a few times at Kustom 9.

“Mem, you look just like a teacher!” I laughed, peered at myself through my teacher specs, …and, I bought the suit. So did my friends. I must ask them why they need a suit in SL.

The cleanly designed suit fits beautifully, has very nice detailing and there are several color options for skirt and jacket and a HUD for the shirt (black, white or grey).

The immensely satisfying details that make the outfit feel great:

Pure of Heart Dolphin Pendant (worn as a brooch) from Chop Zuey, Belle Rouselle donates 100% of the funds raised from the Pure at Heart Set to the World Wildlife Fund. (See the Lua Secret blog where she explains it beautifully.)

Steampunk heels are from Eudora3D they come with a HUD giving options for the main shoe, trim, sole, & metal.

#24 All dressed up…

“I don’t have a bike!”

Imagine – after 7 years in SL I had NO – zilch – zero – not one single motorcycle in my inventory. And I turn up in a party dress at a bike track.

Wearing a sweet glittery, easy to wear bouquet of a party dress from Prism, finished with strappy sandals and my new Byzantine Cross from Vintage Jewels – I was all set to dance the evening away.
