doctor blog pic_001

 

Gah, I feel so out of the loop with blogging, and there’s so much I have to show you and share… AHHHHH! I swear, design is taking over my life, and crushing me like a pile of bricks. But whatever, I guess I could sneak a really quick one in! Last night I was hanging around my uncle Nick, and we decided to play dress up, it was weird. We started off with a car on my pool, and then daleks being drowned, and somewhere along the line I was Pond and he was the Doctor, and then I was like.. I bet I could make a River cus I love her, and events lead to this picture, where, 28 pages into the Marketplace later, after searching for ”friends” poses, and finding nothing but sexual poses, I found this one.. just.. a mess. But this is the outcome, a sweet little moment between the Doctor, and River Song. Ish. SL style. Do you like my afro? It’s pretty epic.

Any whoooooooo, we also have the Berry challenge, and I actually love the idea for this one. Noob advice. I mean, do we ever really stop being noobs in SL? With such a broad space, there’s always something new to try, so I guess, Idk, this is my advice to you all that still feel like newbies, like me!

1. Don’t be afraid to try new things! It can be intimidating, of course it can! I mean, I think about 2 years ago, I decided to start blogging. I didn’t know any designers, I was just some rp’er in some off sim, doing my thing. But I’m glad I decided to start blogging! It taught me how to use photoshop, and I’ve gotten to know some pretty awesome people that I admired. Rose, Aime, Nat, Berry, Aida, Sienia, and that’s just to name a few! I wouldn’t change a single thing!

2. Don’t be intimidated by others when you start new things. I’m still a new designer, and it’s scary to see the talent around you! Sometimes I get sooo down, thinking that I’ll never be in the level that like Ison, Maitreya, Mon Tissu, Mish Mish, and freaking Anya are. But guess what? They all started at the same level you are! You can’t compare to those around you that have been doing x for so long! You have to compare your own growth and go from there!

3. Don’t be afraid to say hi! I’m very bad at this, I’m the shyest person alive, but.. I guess, don’t ever be afraid to say hi to others. We’re all the same after all, bored people behind a computer screen, so.. take a chance, get to know others, and just remember, always be courteous and kind, and like how you want to be treated.

4. Be respectful of others! I think we all need a reminder on this, myself included. Don’t judge others’ taste, or whatever, if someone wants to be a furry with pink jiggly balls, let them. Sure, it’s funny, but it’s their second life, they can be whomever they want to be. We’re all so bad about making fun of the people with the overly huge pouts, abnormally large hips, and questionable taste in their sex life, but.. whatever, it’s their second life, they can do whatever they like.

5. Enjoy yourself and be who you want to be. Forget the haters. Be you! Enjoy what you do. It’s your second life, don’t let others dictate it. Go be the Doctor, or River Song if that’s your dream! <3

SL hair making is a big thing. It seems lately a large number of people have jumped on the bandwagon, and unlike many other areas in SL, that quickly get over flooded with designers of the same style or genre, it seems that hair, is one of those items that we can NEVER get enough of. I personally have had the pleasure of befriending a number of fellow hair creators and learning from them tips and tricks on how to create hair, how to use the tools in the programs we have, and how to make it all work in SL. One of the main things I’ve learned is that there is no one stop guide for it all. It’s made me want to start creating basic tutorials for creating hair, creating mesh in general, and other odd ball things in SL that people could use help on. So with that, when I stopped by an old friend’s store (MaiOwn!), we got to chatting about hair making, and the topic of rigging and making hair for avis who use to use lola breast or large default sl avi breast. I offered to make a quick tutorial on a few things I knew. After a while however – and two full recording with out sound because I forgot to turn on my mic – I decided to stuff together in a 30 min tutorial, a few of the things I’ve learned about rigging via Avastar and blender, along with just some general knowledge about modeling hair. I wanted to share, not just with Emma and Ivanna (the friends I ran into when hair shopping) but all of you, new and old creators, or those looking into starting mesh, to realize it’s not all that scary, and that there those of us out here whom wish to see SL thrive and grow and love to spread the knowledge we’ve obtained over the years.

 

If you have any questions do please leave them below and I will make sure to get back to you on them! I’m by no means a professional blender or avastar user, so not everything I do might be 100% right. Please keep that in mind, and if you know of a better way I’d be more than thankful to know about it! Please leave it in the comments bellow. :D

Flowers for a Ghost

Snapshot_002

 

So.. that was a short break, but the amount of crazy that happened is out of this world, one could almost say.. literally. There were a lot of private events that happened throughout these days, and all I’m happy and comfortable to share is that I’m finally getting the help that I so much needed. For the longest, I was afraid of it, really. I was afraid that doing this would mean having to forget that which I love the most above everything else. Turns out it isn’t, it’s just learning to live with it. Things are starting to line up in my life now, but one thing I have to keep in mind, I have to take it easy. There will be days like today where I’m restless, that’s to expect, we’re still getting things right, however, I have to learn how to relax, and calm down, and not overwhelm myself, which is my worst enemy.

Today I’m dedicating this post to a little someone that none of you know, but I keep very dear my heart, and it just seems fitting that I put some sort of homage in my work recently with her. So here it is. Flowers and balloons, two things that I very closely relate to her. The motives don’t have to be shared, but this is a piece that is specifically special for me.

Brb!

Snapshot_001

 

Sometimes in life we must come to a stop. Sometimes we must realize that we’re not as strong as we thought we were, and the past comes at a wave that is so intense, and uncontrollable, that we don’t know what to do with ourselves. We’re lost, the time lapses are lost, we can’t think, we can’t concentrate, and with each step we take, we feel more paralyzed that we did before.  Every day of this week has become less and less tolerable for me, I tried to push through, I tried to talk myself out of it, but after a while of fighting, I hit a peak, I must stop. There is no way to go anymore. I’m finally paralyzed.

Now I take this time to try to get my life in order, and seek out the help that I needed before, and never got out of fear, out of not wanting to talk about it too much. Obviously this course of action is not working, and it took me long enough to realize this. I hope you all understand that I’m taking some time for myself to recover before I work again, in blogging, or designing. I have tried to push through, but I can’t. It might be a day, a week, a month. I don’t know, but I have to do this for myself right now if I ever want to be fully alright. Thank you for understanding.

So lately I’ve decided instead of running from my problems, or hiding behind a curtain of happiness, I would allow myself (not only as a person, but as an artist trying to figure out her views on life and allowing herself to feel) to feel and try to uncode the emotions built up inside of me. For the past week, I’ve felt like I’m falling – what kind of falling? Free falling, mist dream falling, but no end. Forever falling and confused as to what is going on. My sleep pattern of late has gone funky, so this might be the reason things have felt so off whack.

I feel like I can’t get work done, and I push off things I shouldn’t til later because I don’t feel as if my feet haven’t touched grown yet. It’s not something that is hugely apparent, but I can sense it in me and it’s slowly become a problem – one I want to try to correct today if I can – first off finishing old projects and filling obligations I put myself in, and then starting off new, on new projects.

This post was inspired by this feeling of falling I’ve had, like a caged bird whose whole cage just dissolved under them and now they are free to fly or fall – and being trapped in a cage for so long, falling is the only thing I can do. My wings aren’t even thought about at this point, I’m free falling and my feathers flap against the wind while all the air in me has been knocked out and all I can see is the endless void of sky bellow.

So today I’m taking the step to stretch out my wings and fly – soar over this, and glide into the sun set instead of tumbling head first into nothing.

When wandering around SL late last night, I somehow found myself at Lelutka’s mainstore, and for the first time in my whole SLife, got to see the build fully. Prior to getting my new computer I had always been stuck seeing only the 32 meters around me and nothing more – so rezzing a full store build at times was hard – let alone a whole island. That’s why, today, when I walked around the mall-like structure, I was in awe of the sheer amount of work, time and dedication that went into such a simple but rather interesting design. I saw some parts of the store I had never seen before – and one section I had never really gotten to pay much attention to was the couture dress section. When I found these lovely dresses I was so taken back by the beauty they held. I’m sure most people have seen all these dresses – but for me it was a new experience. The dress that caught my eye the most – and thus inspiring this whole post and the last little pieceIi needed to help me understand what was going on with me this week – was this dress, Raven.

I fell in love with it instantly – even while mid rez,all blurry, I could tell even then, it as beautiful. I snatched it up right away and rushed home to take a picture. I mixed it up this time and chose to not use my typical skin(s) and instead picked this one from Fashionably Dead – for skin fair. It’s really beautiful and I think paired with the this hair, also from FD, for Collab88, the whole effect of a caged bird came together for me.

This is how I feel I would appear as if I had been some beautiful black raven tucked away in a dark cage for years that was finally exposed to light. Black my feathers might be, my skin would be pale and stark compared to my outside. I felt wearing this outfit, powerful, but also weak – knowing how inside I didn’t feel powerful, only my appearance did. It helped me to see I was once again, resorting to hiding under a shell, so today I’m letting myself fall enough to spread my wings and hope I don’t crash for the first time.

I wanted to last mention – and thank, my friend Flo for the poses used today. All of them are from Flowey (I do not have the names on me so sorry but some can be found at Collab88 this time), when trying to pick poses I couldn’t find the right ones until I checked my Flowey folder, and came across some that really helped me get the mood I was going for.

I know this post is rather long – and i’m sorry to the normal Styleminions readers who don’t like these sort of huge walls of text – I wanted to express myself and found this the best place to do it at!

Now for the credits – thank you for reading :3

Those high school days..

Those high school days..

Hello there, once again! It’s Bette, and although I wanted to put together a blog post as Darla (my little avatar) before putting up a second as Bette, I just couldn’t help myself. Mostly, because Darla’s inventory is a crazy mess as of recent, and secondly, because I decided to apply to Kennedy Hall Prep School as a junior, alongside my friend Katie. Be sure to check out that link if you enjoy role-playing on Second Life! Now, Kennedy Hall Prep has mandatory uniforms for their students, and they are rather sleek looking, but I wanted to toss together an easy and youthful look for those times when uniforms are not needed, perhaps for those days when classes are scarce and spending time in the dormitory or the school cafe in the company of friends simply seems much more appealing.

Them bossy boots!

I adore florals. Adore! So these boots by Fashionably Dead were an easy and quick pick! I started off my look from there, and worked my way up, pairing them with the Maitreya Dahlia Socks. I was so excited when I realized that the XS socks fit in my boots perfectly! I usually wear a medium, but for the sake of pairing the socks with the boots, an XS works well. The rest, well, I knew that I needed a backpack of course, and so I immediately searched for my Tee*fy Leather Made Goat-head Backpack, a past Arcade item, along with the Boom Friendship Bracelets, my Sleepy Eddy Pocket Watch in steel, and my Glam Affair Gemma skin that I refuse to take off. Oh, yes, the boots are also a past Arcade item! If you can’t tell already, I really love to accessorize with Arcade items.

Sticking with the florals.

My denim skirt is a usual go-to for me. I absolutely love Tee*fy’s clothing, and I am a big fan of the high-waisted skirts and jeans, as well as the denim washes. I really love the bleach wash because it’s not too, too light! It’s just right, in my opinion. Also, the M sizes at Tee*fy fit my avatar perfectly. As a matter of fact, I am not wearing an alpha layer under my skirt in these images, mostly because I really need to combine my SLink hands alpha and my system lashes alpha, and I’ve been lazy, and so I ran out of alphas! But so long as I am wearing underwear for those times when mesh refuses to load properly, I really don’t need to wear the alpha that comes with this skirt because it fits my avatar like a glove. Now, before I continue to babble, I should mention that I am also wearing one of my favorite rings from Donna Flora, the VITO pink ring. I am pretty sure that Donna Flora is still open, and will remain open as long as possible, so I suggest that you take a gander whenever you have a chance. Donna Flora’s items are sculpted, not mesh, but the pieces are timeless and so beautifully textured. I’ve had this ring for an extremely long time now and I usually wear it whenever I need a nice, pink ring to go along with an outfit. I am also wearing the Short Sleeve Blouse in cream from Tres Blah, a past Collabor88 item, Sleepy Eddy Boston Glasses in tortoiseshell, and the hair named NEW from LeLutka, which I seem to be wearing often! I wear the Walnut Whip color. Also, of course, my SLink mesh hands and IKON eyes. Those never come off! Now, onto the list of styling details.

Skin Fair and Late Memes!

Ohlala… I am late! I really really wanted to mix the sex meme with the skin fair pictures, but rl sent that to the pooper! Oh my. Oh well. Here we go! I went to skin fair, and there’s so much goodness it’s so hard to keep it all together! So Im gonna do my best! I also did my best to keep it pg while showing the body, forgive some of the crappy images, sl decided to implode on me along with my graphics card. LOL! Such is life! Allonsy really quick with this thing! So let’s start with this meme.. shall we?

Sexual Questions: (for RL and/or SL)

  1. What is your sexual orientation or do you not like to label yourself? – I’m straight. I don’t think I’ve ever actually been sexually attracted by a girl, precisely
  2. Name a physical attribute that you find attractive or sexy. – I adore eyes. They’re the windows to the soul! I love strong colors, something original, squinty and almond shaped eyes. They’re my biggest weakness.
  3. Are you promiscuous, a prude or in between? – I used to be promiscuous, then I got married. Then I got really busy, then I got sick, and even in sl, just.. as of lately I don’t seem to have that much time in my hands, though I guess there was a time where I was a bit of an SL slut. Kinda not now though.. sometimes I miss the emotional connection with someone, but it’s not about the sexual need or gratification, it’s weird. I’m weird.
  4. What turns you on? – A man being assertive. Please. Do push my chair away while I’m working and kiss me. See me walking? Push me into a wall and kiss me deeply. I adore for a man to be full out assertive with me, and take the lead.
  5. Are you dominant or submissive? – submissive.
  6. Are you into sexual roleplay? – It depends, I really have to be in the mood for it. I’m into roleplay like writing in sl. Getting into costumes now just reminds me of like.. that family guy episode… you know… this one… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XtbZRqu5s7c so… that’s kind of gone for me. I have to be really really really in the mood for it, however, I’m more into d/s roleplay in the bedroom.
  7. Which sexual position is your favorite? – Oh, my. Missionary, I guess. I love looking up at a guy.
  8. Do you have any fetishes? – Bondage. Assertive men. Yeah……. bye. This is embarrassing.
  9. Have you or would you do porn, amateur or professional? – No. Not now, earlier in my life I would have. Now? Hm, I’ll pass.
  10. Do you consider yourself sexy? – Not at all! Oh my.. yeah.. never in a million years, no.

So.. that’s the meme.. the embarrassing questions, and now you know too much about me. Yup. On to skin fair.. There were a lot of goodies, for instance.. this cutie named Chloe from Filthy.

Black Horse and Cherry Tree

This is Chloe. I loooove her, she is subtle, the thing that I see it lacks is body definition, but the face is just adorable. She also comes with a freckle/moles set that I think I’m never taking off, since I’m kind of crazy about freckles, and these are by far the best I’ve seen in a while.

Next up, we have… Jacquiee from RazzaNova.

black horse and cherry tree2

 

The face on this skin is adorable.. what really really really annoyed me was the fact that it had no appliers. If it did, this would probably be my top skin pick for Skin Fair.. but.. That’s a major draw back for me, I don’t think with so many skins that have appliers, that I’m willing to spend the time matching the skin to the slink hands and feet, sorry.

 

Laura Hurley was another big winner for me in Skin Fair.

black horse and cherry tree4

 

I normally go for paler skins, but the tan option was soooo cute. I can’t find anything wrong with this skin, and it comes with the slink appliers for it, I adore that, saves me moolah on the long run, so.. way to go Laura Hurley, I just completely love this skin so hard.

Dead Apples:

black horse and cherry tree5

 

Dead Apple is one of my favorite eye places, right along side with Ikon, really, that’s the only two places I buy eyes. This skin though is completely adorable, the tanner options are a little ashy, but it’s just so adorable in the face that I’m willing to overlook this, I adore the skin.

Apple May Designs:

Snapshot_009

 

I haven’t gone to this store in forever, admittedly, but this skin is so cute and pure, that I just had to have it. My one complain is that skin appliers in the store were done in a little confusing manner, with versions 1, 2 and 3, and if you’re in a rush.. not the best thing in the world. But amazing job!

And that wraps it up for my picks for skin fair! Gonna do a quick edit on the actual style of the av, and the set up for the shot! Sorry that this is kind of rushed, just.. so much to do! So little time.

Back to Pastels.

Business pastels.

Hello there, my name is Darla, or Bette, but I usually answer to Darla on both of my avatars. Yes, two avatars, two names. Confusing, I know! And although I tend to be overly wordy 99.9% of the time, I have no clue what to say here. I was just telling Rose, fellow Style Minion, that “I don’t know what to say, Rose!” She says I should simply tell you all a bit about myself and my style, and so I am going to take that and run with it! So, about the two names. See, I have two avatars, a big avatar and a little avatar. Yes, I have a kid avatar, and that is the avatar that I spend most of my time on and I will be blogging with here as well, too! My little is Darla Domenici, and my big is Bette Bodenhall. For the sake of my first post here, I am going to give you all a peek at Bette’s style choices.. or rather, my style choices as an adult. (Which, to be honest, aren’t all too different from my style choices as a kiddo, minus the heels and make-up, of course!)

I’m a rather simple girl. I enjoy classic styles on both of my avatars, and in all lives. At times, I can get a little quirky, but it is not as often. I can even get a little edgy, although that is outside of my comfort zone. But gosh, do I love classic styles! Audrey Hepburn-y looks, both old-fashioned and modernized. I absolutely love it! I love soft, feminine looks, as well as old, Hollywood glam, but nothing too flashy! Flashy just isn’t my thing. I don’t wear it well at all. Overall, though, anything soft and feminine is up my alley, which is likely why I completely adore pastel colors. Soft baby blues are my very favorite, although I have recently been attempting to embrace soft pinks a bit. If it were left up to me, everything would always be sold in classic colors such as black, white, navy blue, and a deep, deep red, and pastels. I don’t need any other colors! Or so I seem to think so.

When I found out that the theme for Collabor88 this round was Back to Business, I was so excited! I imagined a large selection of sharp-looking blazers, beautiful skirts and suit pants, and so much more! And yes, that is much of what I saw, and loved. I also loved the color palette so very much, but I wanted to challenge myself a bit and pick out those pastel colored items offered and attempt to put together a business look that appealed to my love for pastels. And so, I picked up a few pastel colored accessories and put together something that I am really happy with!

Strut.

I decided to stick to mint, pink, and white colors, picking up the Sasha Studded Mint Bag with Rose Gold accents that is currently available at Collabor88 from Noodles, created by Natalee. I really adore rose gold, and so I just loved the fact that the studs on this bag were available in that option as well as in gold and silver. I decided to also pick up the Oxford Heels in Mint Polka at Collabor88 that are available from The Secret Store. These heels are absolutely beautiful and come in a wide range of colors! No matter what your favorite color is, or what your personal style is, with the amount of colors available everyone is sure to find a pair that they like. Personally, I just really wanted to fatpack them! The heels are extremely detailed, right down to the ribbed texturing of the laces, and are made to fit the SLink Female Mid Feet, although in the box you do get both a rigged and non-rigged version of the heels. Other things I picked up at Collabor88 are also the Leigh Frames in White from Yummy, as well as the High Friends in Places hair from Lamb, which I am wearing in the Kit Kat color. (By the way, I really love that Lamb’s brunette pack is a bunch of yummy chocolate bars!) Really, I went a little nuts at Collabor88, and I bought much more than what I have on in these pictures, but I’ll save those for a later post.

Walk a mile.

I should likely stop rambling, and move on to everything else that I am wearing, huh? Both my jeans and blazer are from Elate, and are actually from a previous round of Collabor88. (Yes, those are jeans! But dressy, and so very adorable.) My hairbow is an old, old favorite, and it is sculpted, but it is always a go-to for me. It is from TokiDoki, and is available in gacha form or in color packs. My floral undershirt is actually a dress, which I got a little creative with. It is Nylon Outfitters, and also from a previous round of Collabor88. My necklaces are from Mon Tissu and Cae, and my rings are from Cae, Trinket, and Pekka. Both the Trinket and Pekka rings are gacha items. Oh, and last but certainly not least, my skin is from Glam Affair, an Arcade gacha item from the December round, and my eyes are from IKON. (I just can’t seem to take that Gemma skin off! I love it.) Anyhow, now that I’ve either entertained you or have completely bored you with my wordiness, I just want to say thank you if you’ve read this far, and to please look below for more specific styling details!
