Married To MANDALA

MANDALA - Nail Palette (Super Long)

I haven’t been blogging quite as much as I’d like, so I decided to dive in head-first and talk about the newest release from MANDALA.  They’ve released their illustrious nails in 4 different lengths with an all new color palette and HUD that kicks the prim-nails game up a notch.  (Don’t worry, they even released them in a super-short, unisex length for all you girls and boys that don’t like the loooooong nails.)  The “super long” style is shown here cause that’s how I roll.  But what’s really remarkable about these new nails is the HUD and all the options!

Of course, you get tons of color options with new HUD, but you also get to choose from 5 different sculpt shapes for your nails, just in case you don’t dig super-square nails like yours truly.  (But the super-square nails are definitely still an option. Whew!)  You can even choose to make the sculpted nails you sport on one hand different from the other and, alas, you can trick out your nails to the Nth degree by going as far as changing the color of each different nail on your pretty, little hand.

Check out more new releases after the cut to see why I’m truly married to MANDALA.

Shoe Report Card for N-Core (2011)

[I am gratefully syndicated by iheartsl, Metavirtual, and Virtual Fashion Feed.  If you’re not getting all of your Second Life Fashion news from those sources, you should probably rethink that decision.]
NCore Caresse - Red
Roughly 3 years ago N-Core was a virtual unknown that had quietly appeared with a handful of sculpted shoes.  The team at N-Core worked quickly, slowly and fastidiously driving nails into the self-made coffin of Stiletto Moody with quality heels that ooze sex appeal like nobody’s business.  Since they first appeared, N-Core has progressed dramatically, in every facet of business and content creation.  Today, N-Core alone can be seen as an accurate gauge of what speaks to the mainstream in Second Life, boasting an in-world group that includes an excess of 34,000 loyal, active residents.  You’d be hard pressed to go anywhere in Second Life and not see a pair of N-Core shoes on someone’s feet.  N-Core’s indisputable dominance in the world of Second Life shoes, in terms of sheer numbers of customers and sales, earns them a spot on the list.  Having a great product with outstanding customer support just bolsters that position and ensures they’ll remain power players for a long time to come.  That being said, one of the most recent releases from N-Core, Caresse, is on the chopping block.
Design:
10/10
Comments:
When I saw Caresse, it was love at first sight.  The design unequivocally says, "summer is almost here and I'm going to make sure you get all hot and bothered."  Most notably, the Caresse design successfully eliminated one of the design flaws present in earlier offerings from N-Core.  Caresse features, among other things, a new foot that has a very sexy, very pronounced arch [that looks natural.]  Earlier N-Core shoes were slightly problematic for me in that the foot arch, between toe and heel, seemed to be almost at a 90-degree angle and struck me not only as unrealistic, but a factor that would limit future shoe designs since such a pronounced arch would make it incredibly difficult to implement any platform or substantial base beneath the toes and ball of the foot.  But I believe they've hit the nail on the head with the foot used in the case of Caresse - a more realistic foot that manages to fit into an exceptionally high stiletto for an overall shoe that oozes all of the sex appeal that that has made N-Core one of the biggest names in shoes today.

Shoe Report Cards and My Current Top 10 List

[I am gratefully syndicated by iheartsl, Metavirtual, and Virtual Fashion Feed.  If you’re not getting all of your Second Life Fashion news from those sources, you should probably rethink that decision.]

TheShoeReportII600

It has been a little over a year and a half since I last released any Shoe Report Cards.  And while I’ve never been known for being the most regular or up-to-the-minute blogger, those posts were certainly some of the most popular posts I’ve ever published.  Over the past year and a half, many residents and even other bloggers have contacted me to ask whether or not I’d be issuing more Shoe Report Cards.  I always said that I was planning to, but was unsure when I’d be back in the saddle since my real life has been quite full and tumultuous over the past year. 

I’m happy to report that I am back with a new list of what I consider to be the 10 most relevant cobblers in Second Life and at least one Shoe Report Card ready to go.  As always, no ass-kissing, no Photoshop magic, and no bullshit; just me and the naked truth about what’s on your feet.  So without further adieu, I give you my current list of The Top 10 Most Relevant Shoe-Makers In Second Life (in no particular order.)

SLink Brings Christmas In June

SLink Lulu

Last year in April, SLink unleashed the exceptional Tiger Heels – featuring brand new toes.  I’m happy to report that there has been no rest for the weary over at SLink and that this fine week in June has brought the arrival of the Tiger Heels’ big sister, Lulu – featuring brand new toes and a new foot.

My Very Own Bobble Head

Shyayn Bloom Doll

Bloom Dolls 02

Last night I asked my good friend, Codebastard Redgrave, what a hot babe like her was doing on a Saturday night.  I knew immediately that I wanted in when she told me that she and her luscious wifey, Gabby Panacek, were playing dollies and showed me a link to the Bloom Dolls Flickr Group.  I tried not to have an aneurysm (or break a sweat) from all the excitement over having something new and novel to do with my very favorite Doll as I landed at Sand Shack Surf Co. to snatch up one of the new Bloom Doll Avatars.  I teleported home and immediately swooned over my new purchase.  Now I too could absolutely verify what all the rage was about (aside from these little suckers being terminally cute and adorable.)

Warm Feet?

Warm Feet 02 600

My feet are the stuff that legends are made of.  They’ve always been ice cold.  When I was a little girl I’d shove them between my mother and the bed to keep them warm at night to which she responded, “Get those blocks of ice off of me and put some socks on!”  But I was never one for wearing socks, so I started running in a effort to gain some reprieve from my icy appendages.  I ran with the wind, and without it – for any reason, or no reason at all.  My cold feet carried me over what must be a million miles and a thousand lives – propelling me to the highest highs and dragging me to the lowest lows.  Eventually, my cold feet learned to carry me far away from anything that might warm them, good or bad, fearing that any warmth would do away with the icy edge that gave them wings and let me fly.  And though my legs are so very tired and my mind has committed my heart and soul to figuring out how to thaw these little blocks of ice for myself, they are still pretty well frozen-solid.

As luck would have it, someone showed up to hold my hand while I try to melt these little “blocks of ice.”  The warmth that radiates from him is way more than enough to send my icy feet into sub-zero temperatures as they prepare to carry me away.  But today, my heart and soul won the battle with my feet and decided that in lieu of leaving a “Dear John” letter with no forwarding address in an empty bed, I would put on some socks and stay put.

Rock Out With TART

<3 The Digital Doll On Flickr! <3

<3 The Digital Doll On Flickr! <3

One of my very favorite offerings from the Summer of Love Fair [SLurl] is this super simple, sexy mini-dress from TART [SLurl.]  I positively love the fact that TART is continuously coming up with fresh takes on the short, short dresses that we’ve all come to love in SecondLife.  And the Bree dress (above) is no exception.  Super short and super simple with great textures and highlights all over the front but with one hell of a party going on in the back.  I’m lovin’ it!  Right now, you can pick it up at the Summer of Love Fair [SLurl] for something insanely reasonable like $L 99 per color and $L 400 for one of two sets that each include 5 different colors from the beautiful TART color palette.  When I snagged Bree, I decided that I would try to rock out the look a little bit, so I had to go shopping for some terrific tattoos.

I know I’m married to MANDALA, but I absolutely have to tell you that Antoine Burroughs of Burroughs Jewelry [SLurl] is one of the hardest working men in jewelry today.  As you can see from the pictures above, Antoine and the team of artists at Burroughs Jewelry make fabulous jewelry that is … well … smarter than I am!  And maybe that’s not saying a whole lot, but entire sets of finely-crafted jewelry that are scripted to change an (almost) infinite number of color combinations at a totally reasonable price are simply gems that you shouldn’t pass up.  I highly recommend that you check in at Burroughs Jewelry this weekend on your shopping adventures because there are some very hot specials running right now.  You can check out the Burroughs Jewelry Blog here for more details about the current steals.  Today, I decided to let the pictures do most of the talking and used one of my favorite sets from Burroughs Jewelry, Gianna, to display (a little bit of) the diversity you can add to your jewelry collection with just a single purchase from Burroughs Jewelry [Slurl.]

Be A CStar!

The Digital Doll On Flickr! <3

The Digital Doll On Flickr! <3

This is NOT a skin review.  Nonetheless, I have a few things to say about CStar Skins [SLurl] in Second Life and I’m pretty sure that after having seen these new faces that you too might just decide you want to be a CStar girl!  I discovered CStar Skins at the Black & Blue Fair and marveled at the completely unique faces, shading, and lips, so much so that I actually modified the shape of some of my doll’s facial features to fit with each CStar skin.  If you know me, you know that shape modifications are extraordinarily rare for me, so I welcomed the change to play with my shape (that is almost always the same) to complement the beautiful faces coming out of CStar Skins.  But that isn’t the best part, not by a long shot.

I found out that the CStar business model is as unique as the faces on the skins!  After I initially discovered CStar at the Black & Blue Fair, I visited the CStar main store to check out everything else for sale.  To my astonishment, I encountered numerous “SOLD OUT” signs over some of the skins that I would have otherwise been right-clicking to buy.  I quickly learned that each CStar skin is available only in very limited quantities on a first-come-first-serve basis. 

Creating beautiful and unique faces is sheer genius in and of itself, but giving Second Life residents an opportunity to be one of just 15 lucky people on the grid that own the exact same skin moves beyond genius and into EPIC territory!  Let’s face it, we live in a world where residents are constantly struggling to look unique and different from one another in an attempt to express their individuality and skins are a hot commodity (unless you’re a Photoshop genius with the time to make a skin just for you.)  And I probably don’t have to tell most of you that the creation of a quality skin is a tremendous and time-consuming feat.  So if you’re looking to stand out from the crowd and sport a seriously fierce face, I recommend that you check out CStar regularly.  And if the skins you see in these pictures aren’t available the next time you teleport into CStar, don’t worry because CStar has just begun the release of its “High Fashion Skin” series and you can look forward to the release of 2-3 new faces per week.

Now that you’ve gotten a better idea about CStar Skins [SLurl], I leave you with the whole picture.

Just A Little Somethin’ To Break The Monotony

Summertime 01

Here it is the groove slightly transformed
Just a bit of a break from the norm
Just a little somethin’ to break the monotony
Of all that hardcore dance that has gotten to be
A little bit out of control it’s cool to dance
But what about the groove that soothes that moves romance
Give me a soft subtle mix
And if ain’t broke then don’t try to fix it
And think of the summers of the past
Adjust the base and let the alpine blast
Pop in my cd and let me run a rhyme
And put your car on cruise and lay back cause this is summertime

- Summertime (Will Smith)

 

Summertime 02

It’s that time of year when I am feeling terribly sorry for all those folks who live in places where Central A/C is optional.  It’s summertime!  And late last night, my friend Colleen Criss informed me about a little something to break the monotony going on in my own little world.  She gave me a link to The Big Bad Blogger 2010 Sign Up and said, “you write a helluva a blog sister, get to it."  And even though I’ve been away for a bit and focusing more on my store, SHAG, and dealing with my new obsession in Second Life, Petable Turtles, I remembered that it’s just about time for A Shoe Mid-Term Report and the issuance of some long-overdue Shoe Report Cards.  And aside from that, I still have a whole lotta stuff to write about!  I grabbed the bull by the horns, threw my hat in the ring, and decided to use this little challenge as a chance to get into prime blogger shape for some upcoming posts that I’ve had planned for a while.  Who knows?  Maybe they’ll come out this very week.  And being that the dog days of summer are looming closer and closer, I decided to kick off my go at being a big, bag blogger in 2010 with an outfit that has summertime written all over it.

I was teleporting around to the various shops participating in Project Themeory, and I found myself at Acid & Mala Creations [SLurl] where I picked up this adorable, polka-dotted mini-dress in mustard yellow.  The dress is cute-as-a-button, the prim skirt works and I couldn’t be happier with the hue of “mustard” yellow that perfectly complements the yellow Obsession Heels from N-Core [Slurl].  This summertime look gave me the perfect opportunity to show off some of the new hair I picked up at the huge sale going on at fri.day [SLurl] and the Giant Crystal Stoned Love Jewelry in “Sunny” that is available at my own little piece of server space, SHAG [SLurl].  I topped it all off with the arm ribbon that I recently made for all the designer’s that will be participating along with me in the 2010 Summer of Love Fair.  (If you haven’t picked yours up yet, you can grab it at the venue from the giant, full bright gift box near the landing point.)

Have fun, stay cool, and here’s to having a blogger challenge to break up the monotony and (hopefully) make the blistering heat a bit more fashionable! *cheers*

Party In The Back @ TART

The Digital Doll On Flickr!

The Digital Doll On Flickr!

The Digital Doll On Flickr!

The Digital Doll On Flickr!

The newest release from TART [SLurl], Alexandra, has made me painfully aware that I have NOT been giving TART the treatment here that it deserves.  If you’ve been to TART or own anything from there, you already know that the textures are divine, the side seams are always handled with the type of care that leads to seamless perfection, and the designs are unique and definitely never prefab or template-based.  But beyond all that fabulousness, TART almost always provides a fresh take on those tiny dresses that we’ve all come to love and Alexandra is absolutely no exception to that rule. 

In the front, Alexandra appears to be just a high-quality mini-dress with exceptional detailing all over and wonderful lace accents (that don’t stretch) around the bust area of the garment.  But holy mother of god, look at what’s going on in the back!  DOES SOMEONE MAKE AN AO THAT WILL MAKE ME WALK BACKWARDS?  The back of Alexandra features the same wonderful textures and detailing as the front except that there’s a rather noticeable gap, right down the middle of the back of the dress, and it’s covered only by immaculately-constructed prim attachments that appear to be holding that dress together as it graces your fine pixels.  YUMMY!

I know it normally doesn’t get much better than that, but this time it does.  TART has made this sexy, little number (in white) available on XStreet at the promotional price of just L$ 99!  And that’s a bargain that would be criminal to pass up, so make sure you grab yours while they’re still going for just L$ 99.  After you do that, run over to TART and grab all the other colors, cause this little baby has “WIN” written all over it and it’s sure to become one of the prized go-to numbers in your doll’s closet.  And I just can’t resist showing you the back one more time…

The Truth About How I Love Thee…

The Digital Doll On Flickr!

I told you last year that I had been seduced by the Truth and well, since then we’ve been going strong.  Today he seduced me with more beautifully-done, completely modifiable hair that has none of those horrible resize scripts in it.  I’d imagine that you too have been seduced by the Truth by now, but if you’re still on the fence just check out this week’s releases.  I’m in L-O-V-E.

Get Plastik For L$ 50

The Digital Doll On Flickr!

The Digital Doll On Flickr!

The Digital Doll On Flickr!

I can safely say that I spent too much time playing pointlessly in Photoshop yesterday and also that I’m officially freaked out when I see more than one of me in the same picture.  (And it has been a while since I’ve had to crop the ‘ol green screen, so be gentle.)  But that’s all okay, because I did it all for the love of Plastik [SLurl.]  I’m really digging the stuff coming out of Plastik.  The designs from Plastik are refreshingly original and definitely NOT the stuff of XStreet templates, the cuts on the outfits are done with precision so that you get none of that horrid stretch effect in all the wrong places, the textures definitely hold their own, no nasty, mismatched seams anywhere, the prim skirts work (even for all the junk in my trunk) and many of the tube-style dresses come with a chest prim to bridge the gap between your twin peaks that sometimes leaves an unflattering line across your chest if you have a nice rack.  (The chest prim attachment is very overlooked and underused, in my opinion, and I encourage anyone who already is or really wants to be a prolific hoetourier to give the chest prim a second look.)  There’s also a lot of attention to detail in the items coming out of Plastik and this is particularly noticeable when you look at commonly-botched details like the texturing on the prim attachments matching seamlessly with the garment.  (That type of attention to detail is something I frequently comment on, and something I still believe separates the wheat from the chaff when it comes to deciding who really makes the short list of prolific hoetouriers.)

And the best think going on right now at Plastik [Slurl] is the “Black Like My Soul” sale.  Every black item in the store is just L$ 50 right now and for the duration of the sale.  I seized this fantastic opportunity to grab the goodies you see above, but because my soul isn’t really black, (and fatpack is my favorite color,) I had to throw some color on it.

Gos’ Good Buy

The Digital Doll On Flickr!

The Digital Doll On Flickr!

I didn’t get to do a ton of shopping this past weekend, but I still managed to make a few excellent finds.  Yesterday I picked up these spiffy new “Cat Eye” sunglasses from Gos [SLurl].  I totally dig the style of these new duds, as well as the fact that they’re very versatile.  You can change the textures on the frame, lenses, and diamond adornments on the glasses to one of many different options via the blue drop-down menu.  And I’m very happy to inform you that the new “Cat Eye” sunglasses are currently available at an exceptional introductory price of L$ 295.  If you love sunglasses like I love sunglasses, then I recommend that you do yourself a favor and run over to Gos [Slurl] and grab yourself a whole lotta sunglasses goodness for just L$ 295.

I love the texture options available with these sunglasses!  (My only real complaint is that the gems on the sunglasses don’t have a full bright option to make them standout a bit more, though you can make ‘em bling if that’s your thing.)  All the options available on these new glasses gave me a chance to mix up my look and show off another great find from this past weekend, my new favorite tank tops from Suicidal Unborn [SLurl].  And of course, I seized the opportunity to finally show off the Stoned Love Jewelry that I turned out for SHAG [SLurl] a few weeks back.

Gold By Moonshine

Kayle and GOD on Flickr!

The Digital Doll On Flickr!

Kayle and GOD on Flickr!

I already told you that Kayle Mazerath is a total genius and that the ~*GOD*~ sim is one of the coolest places in Second Life, but I almost forgot to tell you about one (of the many) extremely cool things you can pick up when you go to visit ~*GOD*~ [SLurl].  Kayle Mazerath, and the team of artistic geniuses at ~*GOD*~, have created the ~*GOD*~ Dream Scene series of skyboxes.  There are a huge number of different “Dream Scenes” that you can pick from or grab the whole lot right here on XStreetSL.  And although the photos of the ~*GOD*~ Dream Scenes, both here and elsewhere are quite nice, I strongly encourage you to check them out in-world at the ~*GOD*~ sim, because pictures really don’t do them justice.

The Digital Doll On Flickr!

The Dream Scenes are by far the coolest skyboxes I have ever seen, and they rank damn high on the lists of outstanding photo props, premium cuddle places in Second Life, and places that I’m most likely to escape to when the world is getting down on me (or where I might just throw an impromptu party on Saturday night.)  Each dream scene is, among other things, exceptionally unique and creative, under 300 prims, filled with quality animations and poses, and COMPLETELY MODIFIABLE.  Aside from the very obvious “cool” factor, the craftsmanship and work put into the ~*GOD*~ Dream Scenes is second to NONE.  I can safely say that not a stone was left unturned and no effort was spared in the creation of these magnificent skyboxes that really do take you to another world.  The textures, modeling, and effects in each of these skyboxes are among some of the best I’ve seen in Second Life … period.  (And Imma tell you right now, prim water has NEVER looked this good.)

The Digital Doll On Flickr!

Today I chose to show one of my favorite outfits from Son!a (that perfectly matches my gold BAX boots) against the backdrop of “The Moonshine Boat” Dream Scene by ~*GOD*~.  “The Moonshine Boat” is one of my very favorite Dream Scenes by ~*GOD*~, though I have to admit that I have a ton of trouble picking a single favorite from everything presently available at ~*GOD*~.  “The Moonshine Boat” features a small boat full of intimate cuddle animations for couples, surrounded by the killer, mind-blowing prim water by ~*GOD*~, moving clouds, fog and particle effects, and of course a glorious, brilliant moon.  Kayle Mazerath of ~*GOD*~ was nice enough to come over for the shoot and take a ton of pictures that you can check out on his Flickr page here.  (He’s the mystery man in black up at the top.)  Like his creations, his avatar is completely intriguing and really defies being labeled or categorized.  I would promise that we’ll find time to shoot all of the Dream Scenes, but I’m pretty sure that having that much fun is criminal.

My good friend and fashionista extraordinaire, Carissa Crimson, logged in yesterday for a day of shopping, wedding planning, and very important conversations.  So I didn’t miss the opportunity to proudly inform her that I had made an extraordinary and completely hoetastic find at paper.doll [SLurl].  I rushed over in a hurry to show her my new “Peek-Back Mini Dress” and this totally naughty handcuff choker necklace from Gems & Kisses [SLurl].  And before she could finish inspecting my “hooker nails” and telling me that I was falling out of my dress, I said that it was time for her to harness her inner-hoe for a good, old-fashioned hoe down.

And being one to give credit where credit is due, I really have to hand it to her.  Not only did she go hoe on a dime, but she did it well and brought along the all-important accessory, a stylin’ and profilin’ pimp.  BRAVO!
