…nothing left to prove: Butterdish

I went to Butterdish to see what I could see, and got caught up in the tornado, and the flying cows, and Windlight presets–many, many Windlight presets.  But nevermind, it was hells of fun, and I did get one good shot of the Miamai Eona sweater to show you…

Now to me  the numbly coziness of the Eona sweater is the perfect foil for the long, sleek lines of the LeLutka Rockn’ Pants.  Not that the sweater isn’t sophisticated–it sure is!  The textures are superb, and the silhouette is fashion forward and chic.  The cowl neck and full sleeves are just plain yummy, and the way it all works together with the LeLutka gear is so very satisfying.

‘Coz the rest of it is LeLutka–the hair, the skin, the eyelashes.

Everything but the fierce Kookie boots.

It’s snowed out at Butterdish since I was there, and they’ve (thankfully) gotten the cows out of the sky and back in the barn, but do stop by to see the sim.  It’s so worth it!





Textures, baby, Textures!

In Second Life, it’s all about textures! Almost anyone can learn to link some prims, make a flexi-skirt or sculpt a shoe, but the creation and use of textures is what separates the sheep from the goats. Some of these Masters of Texture contributed to this mashup outfit today.

paper couture mashupThe top in this outfit is part of Paper Couture’s Beaded Wildflowers dress. I’m plainly mad for Cora Lu’s work—it honestly makes my mouth water—-but I really have no place to wear the glorious gowns she creates, so I’ve happily resorted to mashups to endulge my passion for her sublime clothing.

The pants are Leezu’s Brit Pants. One only has to look closely at the details in this garment to be stunned by the skill involved.

And the shoes! When I saw the work that Cutea Benelli was doing at Grim Bros, I was flabbergasted, and promptly blew my whole budget. Such texture! Such refinement! Such cleverness! And such good value!

And the detailing on the *GF* Rusty Rose Choker set is boggling (it comes with its own shadows, ffs!), striking just the right mood–subtle, true and honest.

It’s all about the textures, baby!  And these creators have it nailed!

Funked Chanel


chanel21Sevenstar Amat’s  quirky Stitch by Stitch line has long been a favorite of mine—both original and reasonably priced,  and that’s something you don’t see a lot of in Second Life.  So when I saw her homage to Coco Chanel as part of the Modavia Look Book offerings, I snatched it up immediately.
