My Black Heart’s To Blame

Just a picture I was inspired to do by Dreaming Thicket’s new beautiful royal crown release at Enchantment. I wanted to do a more solemn but visually impactful photo that was not your usual kingly picture and this was the outcome. I was lucky enough to find the perfect skin tone made by Plastik that matched what I had in mind. This tune set the mood for this creation 🙂

Best Mates Squad

For the past few seasons, my squad and I have been playing Fortnite (instead of League) so when MadPea made these awesome golf carts, I immediately knew I had to do a pic with my best mates. The new season of Fortnite introduced all new ATKs that we absolutely love and usually my cuzzy is our designated driver. So in this picture, you’ll see me sporting the Bandolier look, my cuzzy wearing the Redline look, and Jin is rocking the spot-on Reaper aka John Wick look.

Getting this scene set up was a bit more difficult than I had thought! I knew I wanted the party bus in back as well as a glider for someone to fly in the scene on. However, I couldn’t find anything in world that were close to what you would find in Fortnight, so I started piecing things together from other items, making a make-shift laser-shark glider and a rudimentary party bus. However, the golf cart from MadPea was perfect as is!

These MadPea Krazy Karts are fully functioning vehicles, seating up to three avatars with different sit animations. The car can be set to everyone, group only, or owner only. You can find these golf carts at The Gacha Garden where there is a total of 9 Commons, 1 Rare, and 1 Seed of Inspiration item to win from this set.

I Like It

I seem to go through phases where I become obsessed with a specific song. First it was Dangerous Woman by Ariana Grande. Then it was Never Be The Same by Camila Cabello. And now it is I Like It by Cardi B & J Balvin. So this picture, obviously, is a tribute to my latest obsession.

Culprit released these really sweet rideable rezzer bikes for Fameshed Go. There are two kinds: Surf scooter and Sphynxie scooter. You know which one I immediately went for 😉 The surf one – of course! With my love for the waters, this was a no brainer and was my ride to the beach for an afternoon dip. Each of the bikes include a rezzer as well as a decor version of the bike. For the surf bike, you can choose from three different themed colors: Aloha, Flower, and Surf.

While at the beach, I snorkeled for a bit, sporting my new swim trunks from Tori Torricelli. The fatpack has a lot of nice solids and patterns to choose from with customizable trim and tie colors. Compatible with Signature Gianni, Signature Geralt, Belleza Jake, Slink Male & Aesthetic Enzo. Then quenched my thirst with a nice cool bottle of beer thanks to ChicChica’s newest release which includes the beer carrier (bento hold animation or decor options) as well the beer bottle (bento hold animation or decor options).

Side note for those who actually enjoy water sports in SL, this Snorkel/Dive mask from Splash Rapids is really nice. They have wear and take off animations for the snorkel/dive masks that will pull the mask from the top of your head down to your face when you are ready to dive or peel the mask from your face to pull back up to the top of your head when you are done diving. If may not be the perfect fit, but there are four sizes of the mask to choose from. In addition, there are a plethora of colors to select for your mask.

I’m Still Here

爺爺, I’m home. Work was really busy today so I didn’t get to come back home until this late in the evening. I brought you some of your favorite snacks tonight. Picked up some mangosteen at a fruit cart nearby and made you some green tea. No cigarettes this time – I know you love them. 奶奶 mentioned you the other day while we were talking about faith and fate. She misses you – a lot. My dad too, I bet, but he and I don’t really talk much. You know how it is. Sometimes I wonder if you’re really here or not still. 奶奶 says your energy still is, it is what keeps her strong even at her age. It’s been twenty years though……. are you still here?

I’m still here…

naked WITH A chair

naked WITH A chair is a creative installment headed by fellow artistic resident Mind Carlberg. What once started as a self project eventually widened to include any and all who wished to participate. The vision? Simple – the naked body and a single chair. So many interpretations. So many perspectives. What a wonderful idea to celebrate the diverse Second Life community.

This project came to my attention when my good friend Tory posted his own interpretation on his Flickr feed. Intrigued, I looked into the creative project a bit more. Further challenged by Tory, I decided to participate. And what a fun little project to be part of, resulting in my own piece to contribute to the ever growing gallery.

To participate in this extended public installment, visit Mind Carlberg’s The Buried Man exhibit here: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Love%20Land/86/91/21

AM to PM

Usually I make my own poses because it is easier to create the pose to my vision instead of trying to find the one that goes with my photos I take. However, I’ve become a fan of the very natural male Bento poses from WRONG. A particular release from WRONG poses at PreCAST Inc. Event that is specifically catered towards suit attire caught my intrigue and immediately inspired this post. With my love for Deadwool suits, this marriage with the formal attire pose pack seemed like a match made in heaven. So came this concept of AM to PM, showing how truly timeless the classy look of Deadwool suits is, of which WRONG poses perfectly complements.

How Far I’ll Go

A very simple post today, but something I’ve been wanting to do for a while. There’s something so powerful about the ocean that draws me. The sound of the waves crashing against the shore stirs comfort in my soul. If feels like it was home in a past life with how familiar and safe it feels. The smell of fresh, salty air. The water so inviting, I gladly cross that line that divides land and sea, leaving the ground behind me and venturing into another world I can float and swim through.

Down on the West Coast

From my last post, you all got a little glimpse of my love with the ocean as I scuba dive in RL. I have some exciting news for you aquatic souls out there – Alan Brady (Brady McKeenan) of flow is back! Yes, he is back!! flow specializes in surfing fashion and gear so to all you surfers, beach lovers, ocean divers – you are going to want to check this store out.

flow was one of my favorite stores back in the day. In fact, flow’s Surf N Shorts were my favs, and I would wear those all the time pre-mesh body era (Livvy can vouch for this because I always wore the same shorts lol). I have items from this store all the way back in 2013! Now, flow has returned with some awesome mesh beach gear, right in time for the quickly approaching summer season.

This post is only an intro/teaser post, to be honest. I have more posts planned to feature flow’s products a lot more in detail, but I wanted to put the word out there for those who used to follow or knew about flow. The new products are now completely mesh, compatible for Belleza, Signature, and Slink bodies.

Flow is back! | Mine & Yours

Test My Limits

I’ve been on a bit of a naughty kick because of a certain someone *cough cough – Livvy* and MadPea’s Club Tenebris currently out at Red Light District literally came just in time. When I saw this set, I knew I had to do something with it. How could I pass up an opportunity to do a kinky picture, especially if she is the inspiration and main motivator for the pictures I create? MadPea’s Club Tenebris was the perfect scene for this sexy set up, showing two sides – domination and submission.

By the way, I’ve been hunting for good tufted wall panels that would give my “red” Master room more depth. I am so particular of what goes in that room and MadPea’s Tenebris Play Wall is absolutely perfect! My requirements were diamond velvety tufted wall panels in red with the contrast of the metal subtly locking the cushions in place. MadPea got this spot on and I am so happy to use this in my Master room.

Other items in the Tenebris set is the Tenebris couch comes with plenty of singles and couples adult animations. There’s also a texture change menu to choose between black or red. The Tenebris Cage looks fantastic with four single sit animations for the submissive. The Tenebris Wall Ring, which comes in the Full Pack) gives cuff props to the submissive and has three single restrained animations. The Tenebris Dance Pole also comes in the Full Pack and has 19 pole dance animations.
