Confinement

I had an awful day at work today. Have you ever noticed – I believe I have blogged about this before- how you get some really bad days sometimes, and not just one, but almost everything goes wrong? Is it like a universal rule where all hell breaks loose in order to teach us a lesson? And what would that be? Cause all I learned today was to “never go to work on a Monday again”.

roses-and-lillies

I will spare you the details but man, oh man… I’ve never been happier that I’m finally home. And yes, I know I keep complaining about my work but come on, bare with me! I’m struggling here! I did have a lovely weekend though, slept much, went out and took a bunch of pictures for you to see. Everything went according to plan.

Today’s post features the new release from Evolove for TLC. It’s a box and it’s called Confined. Only Evolove has confined me so far in such elegant and picturesque way! The box comes with a hud that allows you to change its color and as always, has a bunch of poses in it. The hair is also new from Tableau Vivant and currently at collabor88. Their past releases have been add-ons and hairbases for Lelutka’s Simone bento head. I’m so digging them! Of course, you can wear the add-ons with any head you like. You just need a tintable hairbase (if it’s not a Lelutka head) in order to match the hair color.

The lingerie is from erratic also at collabor88. There are options for you (brasserie, bodysuit, panties etc) if you get the full set or you can purchase only the parts of it you like/want. Last but not least, the skin applier is from ItGirls, not a new release but one of my favorites of hers.

That’s all for now peeps. Have a lovely day/night, be kind to one another and I’ll see you all soon.

I had to share. That being said, I’m going to wish everyone a happy weekend and shut my mouth. I’ll see you all next time!

Constant change. That has been my motto since day 1 of blogging. One of the reasons why I love Secondlife is the opportunity to look different all the time. In my real life I’m stuck with the face I was born with and I’m happy with it (sometimes), so I don’t plan on changing it. But on Secondlife, I can be anything I want to be. This has been a great challenge for me. Changing my appearance all the time, creating different looks, some unique, other common. It is an expensive hobby, I won’t lie. If you’re not blogging for mesh head creators and bodies or skin appliers and you have to actually buy everything you like, can be heavy on your pocket. I have spent a ridiculously large amount of money so far and I don’t see myself stopping that. Even though I have my favorites, it’s hard to choose and only stick to one.

Today’s post features some new releases from We Love Role-Play. My initial idea was to be a vampire again. YS&YS’ super white skin encourages that. Then I saw the creations by Enfant Terrible and Salt & Pepper and knew I had to do it. But instead of the vampire I had in mind, the raw, blood-thirsty one, I decided to make her look more classy and kind of elegant. Nanika’s tattoo from Crossroads complimented her look perfectly.

immortal-mona-lisa

So whether you’re a freak like me or not, even if you can’t afford to buy all different heads/bodies/skins, I highly recommend experimenting with your looks. You can always have your default favorite ones but, in my opinion, every now and then, feels good changing it a little.

That’s all for now peeps. Have a good day/night and I’ll see you all next time.

Hello guys and happy pre-Friday. This week has been really, really long and I’m looking forward to it ending. Do you remember my post about how I take pictures in advance, edit and then adding them to a “to be posted” folder so I can post them throughout the week? Well this is another example of it. But also a forgotten one. Ugh…

pumec2

The thing about this post, is the decor. Most of it consists of releases from The Epiphany which of course, ended yesterday! I know, I know everything would/should be in the mainstores eventually, but still, I pride myself on always being on time. Apart from this one I guess. Or maybe a couple more… I have a good explanation about this time though. See, when I made this scene, The Epiphany was still running. I created it and showed it to Julie who loved it, so I asked her if she wanted to pose with me in it. But, back then, Julie was still struggling with everything in RL and we never had the chance to do it.

pumec

As soon as I realized Epiphany was coming to an end, I rushed it, threw a pose in, wore this cute oufit and took the picture. Edited, put it in folder, only to realize last night, that it is still there and I never got to post it in the first place. So here it is. Better late than never, right?

pumec3

Anyways, you can have a look at the credits below for details on the decor and what I have on. I loved each and every one of these items.

That’s it for now peeps. I have to hurry. I need to go to work and complaint for no reason until the day is over. I know, they’re so lucky to have me!

Have a nice day/night everyone and be kind to one another.

Happy Valentine’s day! Today’s post is definitely not a Valentine’s post. I’m not in the mood but I encourage everyone to celebrate their butts off. I’m expecting to see a lot of hearts, pink and red stuff and love quotes. I’m prepared, so bring it on! hehe. In the meantime, you know I love to be challenged. I love to be creative as well. It is great fun for me to step out of my comfort zone and work on something different, something that is not usually what I do or feel comfortable doing. Probably because, in this case, I use my mind to actually come up with something nice, to create a theme for my picture but, at the same time, be able to recognise me and my work when I look at it.

Lybra participates in the new round of The Gacha Garden this month, with a Shinobi gacha. I liked the concept of it, so there you go. Had I been better in Photoshop, I would have also drawn some blood stains or something, make it look more realistic, but with my skill set, that would probably take me a week!

That’s all for now peeps. Have a nice day/night and I’ll see you all next time.

Rust out

Sometimes, I’m having such a hard time, naming my posts. Usually I get inspired by something I wear or showcase in them. But there are days when nothing seems appropriate or right. Like in this case, I really didn’t want to name my post, Parka. I called it rust out, as the tones in the first picture, kind of reminded me of the color of rust. My first option was Rusty feline, as the panties and glasses have a leopard print, but I figured people would think that’s my nickname or something.

addams2

Today’s post is featuring the new releases by Addams. The beautiful parka which was released a couple of weeks ago and it’s available at the mainstore as well as the Geri Spice dress, available currently at Rewind event. At this point I want to share my experience about this post. Blogging a parka, is not easy. It gave me a hard time, as posing in it, is quite limited. I mean, you can always animate your body in it, sit down, lay down, bend over, fly or whatever but the jacket won’t look completely natural  in this positions. You know when sometimes you’re wearing a long skirt or a gown and when you sit down it surrounds your body but looks completely weird and unnatural? It is what it’s supposed to do but I really don’t like seeing that in pictures. So all I was left with, was only standing poses. Of course there’s nothing wrong with them, but I’m used to working with more intricate and complicated ones. Standing there, didn’t really feel like me.

addams

The hair I’m wearing is a new release by Tableau Vivant. It’s a beautiful updo, with an optional bow on it. It is currently at Collabor88, where you can also grab another style, a ponytail and hairbases for Lelutka heads. The hair of course will work on other heads too, but so far, Tableau Vivant has released hairbases only for Catwa and Lelutka. You can always play with your current head’s tintable hairbase to match the color of the hair you like.

That’s all for now peeps. Have a nice day and week and be kind to one another.

See you all next time!

I know, I know it’s the weekend, I’ve promised to shut my mouth in the weekends, but I can’t be completely silent. I’m Greek and I’m a woman. Trust me, many have tried, but all have failed.  I will be specific and to the point though. This post was mostly about decor but I figured, since I liked it, I would jump in and photobomb it. So since I did, I have to make a quick mention to the new skin applier for Lelutka’s Simone bento head by ItGirls which is currently at Uber. The outfit is new from N-Uno at WLRP event.

The scene features the new release by Newchurch, currently at Draftsman event (which ends soon, so you have to hurry) and a bunch of other releases by Serenity Style, Soy, Keke and others, that I thought they complimented the chaise lounge beautifully.  Check credits below for more details.

Happy Saturday! The weekend has finally arrived. I am working today as well, so I don’t have many reasons to celebrate yet, but it is the weekend, so I’m a little happier. The Epiphany ends soon, which is why, I had to make sure you all had seen 22769 ~ [bauwerk]’s release for the event. It’s gacha of course and the theme of it “Art Atelier”. Such a lovely idea that can inspire you to make so many pictures. You can have a look at the gacha key here. Make sure you check it out before the event ends.

 The pose is new as well, from Speakeasy and can be found, with a bunch of other new ones (all for couples) at the Fetish Fair. The rest of the items featured are not new releases, apart from the hair by Lamb which is currently at Collabor88. The shape and skin I’m wearing is from ItGirls, new one, for Catwa heads, but since it’s not really obvious in this picture, I’ll make another post for you to see. Until then, you can always have a look at Annie‘s stream, to catch up on all of her latest releases.

I’m going to be quick today as a) it’s Saturday and, as promised, I never ramble in the weekends b) I will be late for work. But I’ll be back with another post soon so be patient. Yes, that is both a threat and a promise, hehe.

Have a nice day everyone and be kind to one another.

Back in Memphis

Those who follow my posts, probably remember that I have OCD. I also have a sick obsession with detail and small things that other people might find unimportant or irrelevant. For example, I will always notice if the frames on a wall are straightened, I will never put a coffee mug or a glass on the table without a coaster underneath or if you open my closet, you’ll see my clothes, all tidy and properly organized, according to color. Why it’s actually weird why I can’t seem to organize my inventory, which couldn’t be messier. I do enjoy being a mess every now and then though. Makes me feel like a complete rebel!

thor1

I posted on Plurk on Sunday, asking advice on how I can make the textures on objects stop refreshing every 5 seconds. It’s been a month now that I’ve been experiencing this issue. This post gave me a hard time, for that reason exactly. I rezzed the objects, decorated and made the scene. I dressed myself up and prepared to take the picture, only to realize, once again, that some objects on the picture were blurry. Each item was refresing, one after the other, making it impossible for me to take one picture alone. I contacted almost everyone I know on SL, showing them a gyazo of it, asking what could be wrong. I even had the lovely Reina Spencer come over and check my frames per second. Most possible scenario, my graphics card is dying. Apparently I had too much stuff in my platform plus on my screen (huds etc.) making it hard for my graphics card to “read” them all and inevitably forcing them to refresh constantly. I don’t know if that makes sense, but derezzing and detouching some things helped. But you can guess my reaction when I took the picture, saw it and found out that most of the things in it were blurry and not completely rezzed. Has been a huge test on my OCD.

thor

I am stubborn though and I don’t give up easily. So after 1.000 curses, 3 cups of coffee and 4 hours of sleep deprivation, I managed to take the picture. I really wanted to, as it features the new creations from THOR at the Cosmopolitan event. Beautiful designs as always, so I wanted you all to see them. Post’s title is also inspired by one of the items you will see on the table. The skin applier I’m wearing is also new from PUMEC and currently at the Coven. It’s for Catwa heads only and there are a bunch of skin tones for you to choose from.

Happy shopping peeps!

That’s all for now. Have a lovely day/night and be kind to one another.

More details about the gacha

(from THOR’S notecard that is included in the set)

“This gacha set is composed by 18 items (for the complete setup), all modifiable and all transferable.
– Lamps with script that allows turning on and off the light. They have a menu for features: hold the click on for 5 seconds to open it, or just change the notecard inside to have a different setup about light/glow/color etc by default.
– The sofa and the stool have animations poses (two for the sofa, single for the stool)
– The stove and the trunk have a menu to open/close them.
– The turn table has a tri-touch system, so: touching the plexyglass it open and close, touching the long play it starts to turn on or off, touching the little arm it has an animation so it goes on the long play.
At last, touching the wood part, you can listen an entire song.
It is modifiable, so you can add your music too, just looking inside as any split of music is called (before the name-after the series number-at last the exact timing).
It will recognize the song directly and will put in the menu, giving the choice to listen to it (even many songs).”
