The Bloogers liked Hyasynth Suits quite a lot.
But this Blooger who’d spent all her money did not.
Not satisfied with Severin and the whole Suit-y season.
Now please don’t ask why, no one quite knows the reason.

It could be perhaps that her shoes were too tight.
Or it could be her head wasn’t screwed on quite right.
In the whole store she looked, she looked all around
but new gowns were scarce; there was none to be found.

Then she got an idea. An awful idea.
She got a wonderful, awful idea!
“If I can’t find that gown, I’ll make one instead.”
She took suit and scissors, seam ripper and thread.

“I know just what to do!” She laughed in her throat.
“I’ll make a Victorian Frock from this coat.”
And she chuckled and giggled! “What a great Mash-y trick!”
So she cut and she sewed and the Frock was done Quick.

(Click images to see more detail. The first image is my modified mashup; the second shows pieces from the original outfits.)

I love all the detail on the jacket from the Severin Suit, but I wanted more of the look of a period gown. This second picture shows some of the pieces from the two original outfits I mashed together. I used the Jacket, Shirt and Jabot from the Severin Suit (that was the easy part) and then combined the Dolly Skirt and Bustle from the Severina Suite. These are both pelvis attachments so I rezzed them on the ground, linked them, and attached the whole thing to my hips.

That's where the real work started. First, I stretched all the prims in the dolly skirt to slightly above my ankles. The dolly skirt and bustle looked too different to look like parts of the same garment, so on the back half of the dolly skirt I pulled out the lace underskirt prims so they are outside the fabric. I enlarged to bustle quite a lot. Finally I stepped back and tried the skirt with different poses. My legs tended to stick through in some poses so I spent a good hour fiddling with the prims to minimize that and adjusting the area where the skirt prims meet the waist in front.

I sat and tried to think of an original way to write about the new Severin Suit and this moddy mashup was the ee-vill result! Too much fun.

"Welcome to Bermuda, Mr. Bond. I just finished preparing your suite. Will you need extra towels or toiletries? No? Please let me know if you need anything else."

He threw me roughly on the just-made bed and stepped back, drawing his Walther PPK quickly and eyeing me suspiciously from a distance. "Tell me who sent you. You are no more a maid than I am a boy scout." I knew my cover was blown so I told the truth. "I was sent to look after you. Felix sends his best." ... "How did you know? What gave me away?"

He whispered in my ear "My dear, those are not the shoes of a domestic."

Of course this isn't the kind of accessory worn by a maid either.

I stand in front of the mirror, open mouthed, looking at the coat. The asymmetrical flaring collar and lapel, the deep texture of the heavy fabric, contrasting strikingly with the sheer floral trim at the collar and cuffs, and the sheer panel floating inside the coattails. The chocolate brown is so warm and comforting. Pure luxury.

I love how the subtle the color is, compared to the deep golds of the rest of the outfit.

This brooch from Alchemy Immortalis is posh enough to wear with it, and highlights the golds of the corset and trousers.

A pretty ordinary evening in the Wastelands. Really. Just try to stay away from Reavers.

Only a fool would walk around here after dark without equipment. I have plenty up my sleeves. If you don't like it dark you can burn something. But I wouldn't waste any ordnance on that If I were you.

This belt comes with medical supplies as well as weapons in case anything goes wrong. The medic kit doesn't show in the pictures but I figured two shots of the bag is already overkill ... so to speak.

This Grenade bag has such amazing detail in the textures ... the craftsmanship is really fabulous. For instance, if you look under the flaps on the pouches he baked on shadows. The color of the fabric parts toggles on touch between khaki and black but the detail shows better on the khaki color. (touch pics to see more detail)

This hair is a fabulous chunky do, blocky with no hint of flexi, like a helmet, with a digital marquee of oriental characters orbiting round the cranium. Much more incredible in world than in still photographs. I have other cat eyes but these silvery eyes are startling and go well with the metallic bodysuit and cybernetics.

Whether your cybernetic improvements are necessary replacements after an accident, or optional upgades, they make this kitty powerful for work, play or battle.

The tail and ears change on touch to several colors and twitch occasionally to show your mood.

And the boots. Damn.

erm, I mean Luna Lovegood. For those of you who don't read J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter, Luna has an enchanted Lion Hat that she wears to cheer on the Griffindor Quidditch team. When I saw this headgear I laughed and had to have it, but I couldn't bring myself to buy it in blonde.

This lovely skin with some bruises and a little bandage near my eye are perfect for the brilliant yet absentminded girl who has occasional accidents whilst brewing potions.

Now Luna is messy and unconventional and doesn't spend much time worrying about whether her clothes really match. Stripes? Florals? Knits? Sneakers? Sure bring 'em on. (I modded this long skirt to knee length to show off the leggings.)

p.s. Anyone know where I can buy some radish earrings?
p.p.s. What can YOU do with this hair? Jungle Queen? raging Neko? bring it!

Achariya threw down the challenge here to represent a John Hughes character. In my opinion the most poignant was Cameron Frye. But maybe I just identified too well. His friend is not fooled by his orderly perfect act, and prescribes a bit of disorderly imperfect fun. And some rule breaking.

Look at me! Deal with me! *kick* I exist dammit! *kick*

Presented lovingly from a pointillist point of view.

The first annual Steampunk / Cyberpunk Festival is underway and will continue through August 28th at the Pavo Isle Sim. I was a little surprised by how small the Cyberpunk side is but I suppose it's a new event and it should improve next year. I couldn't resist another period gown from the Laughing Academy. I am only wearing the top half here but I want to point out the detail on the bodice. The front has a window showing you my inner robotic workings. And I am wearing some Fall-Front trou's that I nicked out of my husband's closet.

You can see the lovely keyhole detail on the back of the bodice, in case those inner workings need maintenance. And the tattoo is an unlikely but interesting combination of gears and poetry.

And these shoes! The copper heels! little copper cog ornaments ... even the eyelets for the shoelaces are cogs.

Now this is why I "borrowed" some trousers instead of wearing the skirt. The Horseless Gown is simply a fabulous drive, the gown portions are color-change. To use it, rez it on the ground, then sit on it. When it appears the door is open so you can see the luxurious upholstery inside. When you sit the animation shows you climb inside and the door closes. Lovely.

Walking in Kowloon, I smile nicely and act respectfully ...

... But I carry a weapon just in case. Today I am armed with the Hunter's Bow from Harbinger and Stormie designs. This store specializes in all kinds of ancient weapons needed in many roleplaying sims but does not manufacture guns or other modern weaponry. I love that their weapons include a HUD (heads up display) that lets me control my weapon features without constantly referring to notecards for chatline commands. Their bows and crossbows use several types of arrows for roleplay in addition to traditional weaponry, including signal arrows, flaming arrows, rope arrows and (my personal favorite) dung arrows. *low dirty laugh*

I'm still wearing my AM Radio aviator glasses that he gifted us at his hangar on the Refuge and Expansion sims. The sims are gone now so they aren't available anymore. You can also just see the IndustrialRevolution earrings made of great steampunky cogs.

I tell you there are evil forces at work here. And her name is June Dion!

So the other day I went to Bare Rose to see if they had anything new I liked in the cyber or fantasy departments and look what I ended up taking home with me! Well as I sat at home staring at what came out of the shopping bag I thought, What the hell? All these ruffles? What happened to me? Did June install a brainwashing orb next to the raffle orb, or was I just seduced by the sculpty goodness? What am I going to do with this? I'm already married !! Can I throw the white satin in the washing machine with a package of black dye? ... Well I removed a few pieces that make me think the most of weddings ... the set comes with lingerie and thigh high stockings. I took off the elaborate headpieces and flowered bodice, and replaced the top with a simpler white wrap shirt to tone it down just a little.

And put on some cutie makeup. I considered making her the bride of dracula with glowy red eyes and dripping fangs, hmm. I'll have to try that one sometime.

Dress: Bare Rose “White Rose Anthem” (skirt and arm ruffles)
Skin: MY UGLYDOROTHY “Fairy’s Smile” (group gift)

Be afraid. Be very afraid. And leave your credit cards at home.

Please don't stare. I know you are looking at me.


Well, maybe a victim of my own success.

The Extinction Bomb Bag is a fabulous piece of role-playing equipment. You may hide the chest belt, hide the bullets on the chest belt, hide the machete, and change the bag color. You can set the bomb down and then set the random timer to explode. You can set the bag permissions to allow others to disarm the timer … or not.

♪♪ An - ti - ci - pa - tion ... I guess we only have to wait until September 1 for the new Twisted Hunt !! The last one was fabulous. I'm getting in the mood, so here I am wearing DV8 gear and a couple of the gifts from the last Twisted Hunt. I took my pictures today at the Twisted Hunt HQ at the DV8 shop. (I have to admit that with the stripey curving trees, the display reminded me of Dr. Suess ... on drugs.)

Okay honestly I mostly included this first photo so you could see the tight shiny butt on these pants. After this pose I needed help to get up off the floor.

Mmm lots of buckles to make sure the top is snug.

Here I am mixing pieces from two different DV8 outfits. The female Geishurai outfit comes with a different top. Here I am wearing the shirt from what is supposed to be the male Praxis outfit.

The House of Creation Bone Ring is a keeper from the last Twisted Hunt.

Now this makeup reminds me of the movie Bladerunner. It is on sale at PixelDolls for a silly L$10 ... until she recovers sanity or retires it for good.

The Cyanide piercing is also from the last Twisted Hunt.

The katatOnik necklace is color change to match just about anything you want to wear. And don't you try to tell me that the katatOnik shop is not twisted ... I know better.

Outfit: DV8 “Geishurai” and “Praxis” (mixed pieces)

It's rough, a career in enforcement in Sick. Patrolling dark dirty streets armed with wit and a laser blade. It helps to have good equipment. My gear includes holo-identification of my guard unit on both the front and back of my uniform, light armor, communications with built-in power packs, emergency lighting, night-vision goggles, air filtration, and ordinance.

It helps to know your martial arts. You should stay in practice.

The blade is like a cross between a classy lightsaber and practical machete.

Outfit: S.I.C_49 “S.I.C_5 Jacket Set” (Creators Stamp Rally Gift) (Jacket, pants, headgear, belt, boots, weapon and meter ... sized for men but all modifiable except for the weapon and meter. The uniform includes pants with attachments for your thighs. I wanted more pockets etc. so I made copies of the thigh attachments and put them on my lower legs too.)

Shirt: Alphamale “Army Tee” (gift)
Eyes: Poetic Color “Night Rain”
Hair: Waka and Yuki “Hair 37 *TYPE*A”
Skin: Curio “:GP: Acorn [Dark] Breeze-Liquid Sky 1"

Sick is a roleplaying sim that uses its own combat meter and weaponry. Lots of Japanese citizens.
