Waiting For Miss P. (A Co-Blog!)

Primpin Ain't Easy

I’m wondering how long I’ll be waiting for her to finish getting dressed this time. (I’ve lost count of the times we’ve done this.) One of the things I’m jealous of is the amount of clothes that women get in SL compared to what the men get. It’s really a pain when you’ve got an idea for something but there just is no real way to accomplish it given the options available. Then I watch Portia spend all kinds of time trying to figure out what to wear. Safe to say I’m a bit more glad to have fewer options then. Continue reading

The Light ~ We <3 RP Preview

Holy wow, busy few days!

I have been having the absolute BEST time styling for this month’s round of We <3 Role Play (opening TODAY at 3pm SLT) and, gosh, it’s a great feeling to get back into blogging with a bang like this. Like anything, the more you do the easier it gets and the bug has hit me HARD with a couple of looks that haven’t made their way up here yet. This one jumped to the front of the list, though, and I’m sure you can see why. :D

When it hits, inspiration is glorious!

Confessions of a Closet Apothecary (Cloth-a-cary)

The Alchemist

Okay, confession time.

I have a lot of stuff.

I know, I know; I’m a blogger and stuff is what I’m supposed to collect. It’s true. What might not be readily apparent is how much I love doing it and, even more than that, how much I LOVE anything even remotely magical. Bottles, books and beakers; skulls, candles and glowing things .. if I don’t already have it, well, ..I need it. Please. Just point me in the right direction and stand to one side!

If Animals Could Speak – What Would They Tell Us?

CZ The Lion Speaks

I wish I knew.

CZ The Lion Speaks

It’s rare that I post as simple a headshot as this, rare that I allow myself the time to sit down and focus on ONE thing that matters to me. Most of my stylings are about an outfit being greater than the sum of its parts, of the harmony that we’re able to find in mixing and matching between textures and styles, genres and concepts but there’s always point to them. The point I want to make today is simpler; an emphatic statement with few words rather than the chapters I devote to one style or another.

Life is precious.

I’ve been struggling to find my response to the insanity of these last weeks. I’ve wanted to speak out in some way, not because I need to be heard but because I believe it’s important to deny extremism the gift of my silence. Maybe one blog post isn’t much in the grand scheme of things, and that’s fine, but added to others it becomes more.

Second Life is full of brilliant and talented people devoted to helping one another and together, we have donated thousands upon thousands of dollars to charitable organizations. I’m warmed and astounded every time I see another one of these events on the grid; the willingness of our designers, event-coordinators, and residents to support their global community. To be loving, hopeful, and optimistic. And we’ll change the world.
