For my taste, this skin is the prize that makes the hunt. It is much less photo sourced than the previous MHOH hunt skins featured, and the photo elements are so carefully blended in you don't notice them. I stripped Inotto down to his Arnadi undies and looked him over till he felt like a cheap piece of meat LOL. The attention to detail was all that! Parts of this skin to which many designers pay less attention were flawless. For example, the scalp has the same kind of subtle freckling as the rest of the face. And for my money this skin has the prettiest ears I have seen on any skin male or female. (I resisted the urge to take a close up shot of his ears, you're welcome.) The dragon tattoo is an alpha layer addition.

Magically swapped tattoos so you could see this one too. There were several to find in this Hunt but I think this one from Aitui is the most original. Perfectly bone chilling and went nicely with this dark Dracula-esque suit from LnL. Muahahaha. You can't even see fangs until he bares them.

Could you put on a little Luther Vandross?

I just melt in these eyes, and nothing but appreciation for the man wearing this skin. He is just mature enough, starting to get one or two silver bits in his hair.

An adult. And the jacket is like the man, just a little aged, but well cared for.

He knows how to dress up for a casual dinner.

Or dress down for a fly club. To introduce you to his best friends. (But what happened to his shoes?)

The skin pack from Tellaq also includes an older and still gorgeous version of the skin, with more silver hair, and clean shaven skin. He's lovely.

It's quiet here ...

Where I live there are two or three weeks that hang suspended in between summer and fall. Thankfully cooler than August, summer's blooms going to seed, the green leaves subtle golding. On a day like this I couldn't stay inside, so I sneaked away from the house to walk in the grass and trees.

This classically vintage gown from A La Folie is trimmed with translucent embroidered laces at the bodice and the layers of the skirt; it can be dressed up by adding a frothy jeweled shoulder piece, or dressed down by wearing a knee length pencil skirt with a bow at the waist and a matching hair band. The outfit also includes matching Necklace, Earrings, a Bracelet, and a flower to hold in your hand.

I wanted to dress down the gown a little so I removed the shoulder frills. When I saw this loose and soft hair style I knew it would be perfect with this gown. I love how it relaxes the style and makes it less formal.

FASHION NO-NOs: a Blogger Challenge

Fashion No-No: HORIZONTAL STRIPES! What was I thinking? Can I really pull it off? Will fashion bloggers everywhere do a spit take and get me permabanned for all their ruined laptops?

I double dog dare you all to choose what you consider the most binding fashion rules ... and break them all, but make it look steaming hot! I chose horizontal stripes, but you might combine plaid and paisley, wear bling, or patent leather shoes made of non-sculpted prims. Go crazy!

I figured cute girls can get away with anything, but some color at the eyes and beautiful jewelry should pull your eyes away from stripes, stripes, stripes.

Fashion Rules were made to be broken.

Necklace: Mandala “Shaka” (versions with and without shadows)
Earrings: Zaara “Tarika Claw Earrings”
Ring: Yabusaka “10 Ring (Sai)”
Bodice: Just Me “Hailey Top Black Stripes” (sculpted)
Shirt: Tyranny Designs “Find Me In The Rain” (unavailable)
Leggings: Pink Outfitters “The Bandage Pant”
Shoes: A-Bomb “Gidge Shoes Zebra”
Hair: Bishwear “Sweeny” (Hair Fair)
Hairbase: Tiny Bird “Blacks”
Skin: Curio “:GP: Petal [Light] Lovely-Firehouse 2”

p.s. Please put links to your Fashion No-No's in comments, or put a link in the Fashion Bloggers Group Flickr, so I can list them here! :P

I don't have time to go on hunts anymore, but I make a few exceptions.

My new home is beautifully crafted by Parajen Designs for the Steam Hunt.
I don't really need this much space, which makes it feel like a luxury.

So there I stood, trying to decide what to put where.

Good thing I'm wearing my Cogitator.

This desk came with more accessories, but I shunted some
of them aside to make room for some lab equipment.

And I brought the mech arm to make it easy
to hang lights and put stuff on the top shelves.

Hat: Hatpins “Steamy Victorian Cogitator” (Steam Hunt)
Magnifying Glasses: Amaranthus “Lacy Rust Steampunk Spectacles” (Steam Hunt)
Pin: Beloved “Keyhole Cravat Pin” (repurposed as a brooch)(Steam Hunt)
Armband Toolbelt: Mire “Pathfinder Utility Arm Belt” (Steam Hunt)
Mechanical Arm: Sculptify “Female Arm Extender” (male version included)(Steam Hunt)
Waistcoat: BlakOpal “Steampunk Waistcoat” (ladies corset also included) (Steam Hunt)
Pants: Silentsparrow “(copper) Severin Suit Pants” (from the newest group gift)
Skin: Mynerva “OMG That’s Adorable”
Hair: Bryce “Traveler Whitewash Alloy” (gift at Hair Fair)
Eyes: Poetic Color “Night Rain”
Home: Parajen “Steam House” (you MUST have this!)(Steam Hunt)
Desk: The Epic Toy Factory "Rich Burled Desk Set” (more pieces not shown)(Steam Hunt)
Glassware/Lab Equipment: Hudson’s Illuminations “Lab Set” (Steam Hunt)
Poses: Animazoo and Long Awkward Pose

So many things to see! I can’t show it all, but you really should also have the Belle Belle Aether Headphones. The Spunkish Tophat from Camellia’s. Sometime you will need a boat just like the one from Cogoo, and a Steam Carriage like the one at Twisted Metal SteamWorks, and a Cepahlapod Vehicle from Lucy Rusts’ Boondoggle, and The Jetpack from Sparkworks, and the Davinci Ornithopter from NS6, and E. Bergamesco’s Hot Air Balloon ... The fabulous big clock from the Julia Collection and the fabulous little clock from Stainless Steam ... Scientific Equipment! Oh the scientific equipment! Kusshon’s Steampunk Workshop! The MURbot! The depictions of the solar system by the Golden Oriole and Ky’s Kreationz, the beakers and microscope and magnifying glass stand … just go! Go!

Lady Thera's Workshop specializes in gowns that are inspired by artworks. This one was inspired by the famous portrait of Empress Theodora, but wandering through her shop is a wonderland of Van Gogh, Dali, Magritte, Monet, Klimt ... even a few arty suits upstairs for the men.

I couldn't help myself. I went back to the Conflagration to dance. Have you been there yet? The builders wanted you to imagine what it would look like if you could go inside your inventory and look around at the digital art inside. This place burns with blue and golden fire, with lines and binary codes, symbols and sculpture and music. Somewhere beneath I even found a little club.

Not to be missed!

Waiting for a wealthy date outside the Reaktor Club, I had an odd flashback.

When I was a teenager, my grandmother was worried about my social skills, so once in a while she would roll me into a sophisticated cocktail dress, and take me to a party with young military officers in dress uniform, or make me serve finger food and drinks at some political fundraiser full of tipsy older people. I always felt out of place and horribly overdressed.

I shook off the memory and tried to get back to feeling like an adult.

Gown: Deco “Evening Dress Cherry” (all the attachments are sculpted and Wow!)

September is here and fall is so close I can hardly stand it. I am looking forward to soups and cooshy sweaters. The first pumpkin pie and hot chocolate.

I'm trying not to get ahead of myself. I'm going to slow down and enjoy the fall leaves, and the aromatic smells of the lavender and catmint and russian sage in my flower bed. I'm going to take my daughter on that hayride, to the pumpkin patch, and the petting zoo and fall pony rides. We are going to make sugar cookies and harvest fennel seeds and the last tomatoes.
