So all the combat looks start out when I get this Flight Jacket from DeLa after I watch Michelle Yeoh in The Magnificent Warriors, and start to put together outfit that is inspired by her looks in the movie. Mix and matching with some things I had, and some things I buy, and use weapons and accessory I had on hand. So various combination of the following clothings:

.:EMO-tions:*RONIN* hair (ponytail – very heavily modified and retextured)
Adam n Eve – Desire t2
Le Mystere Eyes-Onyx
AD – Vamp Eyelashes

Pix are like not really in much order other than is how I change. I take them using various backgrounds in my Photoshpere, and poses are from Cherry Girl.

First time I try to use Gallery function in the blog, so if you click on picture will make gallery bigger and then click any individual picture it gets full size. I think helps save some space huh.

Dang, I look and see last time I make any entry was July 18, 2010 and is now Feb 18, 2011, that’s long time no see huh? Well hmm I got busy LOL.

I spent lot of that time roleplaying, in DCS2 and CCS combat sims (Feudal Japan and City of Lost Angels), and some other places. Was fun at times and had some potentials, but in the end I don’t fit in anywhere where I add value and still enjoy myself, so I move on. I took lot of snapshots and will try to put some up with all those nice weapons I got and some outfits (though for me weapons I select are more a fashion accessory than actually useful for circumstances).

Right now though is current outfit, I just visit the 10L Cart Sale at The Wash, and got some nice things, the one I like best so far is this tweed jacket/vest combo.

and here is paired with jeans.

Pretty simple style sheet here:

b[ELLE] – Tweed Jacket – Brown (10L) at Wash Cart Sale
[hoorenbeck] Military Shirt – white
Phoenix Rising – Mona – Ice
P10 Serenity Heels Paisley (VIP Gift)
Dark Mouse Color Change Pearl Stud Gold Earrings
M&H Design  Hair LadyCyntia (heavily modified and some retexturing)
.:EMO-tions:*RONIN* hair (ponytail – very heavily modified and retextured)
Adam n Eve – Desire t2
Le Mystere Eyes-Onyx
AD – Vamp Eyelashes
Pose by Cherry Girl

So preview of stuffs from my roleplaying excursions is outfit I put together sort of fantasy inspired from Kung Fu movies:

I take this picture at Pasademon Point in the City of Lost Angels sims.

Style Sheet

Analise – tal Carmina (Pants, Silks, Veil)
Dark Eden Mistweave Oshun (arm wraps & collar)
Zaara Maitri short jacket *pearl*
New Gomorrah Armory Lotus Katana
The conical hat I made to go with outfit
census Ancient Brothel Tokens (earrings and belly pierces)

Anyhow my thought is I go through stuffs I am get lately, as well as the backfillings of things from when I was roleplaying and so on.


World Wide Interactive 24/7 Soap Opera Character

I'm just a supporting cast member to world wide interactive 24/7 soap opera called "Second Life". It's a just a game or time-waster to some, and more important than real life to some, and everyone else is in between the extremes.

I'm not a primary character in anyone else's personal soap opera story, just supporting cast. I stopped taking it serious like that years ago with older avies that had romances, ran businesses, were entertainers, were designers and builders. Now I am just wanderer vagabonding around and try to spend the inheritance my older avies left me. Lots of the time is frustratation on missing how things use to be in SL when the magic was still there for me, now is my hobby and try as i try, i cannot keep from logging in for hours and hours at a time, but I do resist temptations to let it take over my real life once again.

What I'm blogging:
Is in the end in style of a fashion blog but is not like a real "I'm a fashion blogger" nonesense thing.
I'm not all so much about finding new designer things that are out so much as finding things I like i never seen, or better track down something I saw before and didn't get and now want to get, and playing with what I got in inventory in addition to things I see when I'm out getting new things.
I'm not real fashion blogger type that like has designers drop things into inventory and say "blog this" huh, nothing like that, mostly is to go through the thousands of things I have and at least get some use out of them and maybe a few stories and like my observation on things.

Personal Pet Peeve in SL fashion trends

So, my avie is short and wide by SL standards, consequently most all prim parts need some adjustments. I hate resizer scripts (that as far as I read in blogs don't work to stop copybot anyhow), since they do all directions, and typically i need to make shorter and wider, not bigger which you cannot do with those scripts. Some designers are really cool and will send or upsell me a modify set of prims or will adjust if i send them my shape if they insist on not selling a mod version; and others tell me pound sand and say that I need to change my shape. Most designers ignore me if I make requests or they ask for a bunch extra lindens to do a fitting. The second two sets I'll never buy from again nor do I recommend, hope they are happy with the one sale.

Unless Otherwise Noted

I realize some of stuff I don't change much so unless otherwise noted the following should be presumed:

Skin: Adam n Eve – Desire t2 – make up Russet
Eyes: booN tsubura eyes lampblack
