Bax Coen Wins Silver …

As I’m sure you’re already quite aware that today is reserved for the celebration of Bax Coen.  (She did send out a notice to the Bax’s Boot Promotion and Update group in-world to notify us in advance!)  In keeping with the occasion, SecondLife residents from the farthest corners of the grid and everywhere in between are appropriately falling over themselves to get to the new BAX Boots store and throw down their hard-earned duckets for the latest renditions of the exceptional BAX Prestige Boots.  If you thought we had seen enough of these boots, you were dead wrong.  Yeah, they’re that good.  Not being one to leave her loyal followers feeling anything less than intoxicated by her latest release, Ms. Coen again raised the bar (she set) and simultaneously threw down the gauntlet to anyone daring to create virtual silver or gold.  Since shiny things set my heart aflutter and anything convincingly silver sends me over the moon, I wasted no time getting these precious metals on my feet and creating a look to match.

I thought surely I would center an outfit around the “fine silver” color option on the newest BAX Boots, but the blue tint of the “electric” color option had me on rezz.  It matched up nicely with one of my new favorite corsets from *X*plosion that features some look-at-by-fabulous-cleavage, sheer, black lace peeking out of the bodice.  And on this holy day, all the right planets perfectly aligned in the house of Shyayn allowing me to miraculously locate and retrieve this black, lace skirt by Canimal from the depths of my closet.  Not only did the skirt perfectly complement the aforementioned cleavage lace on the corset, but it easily accommodated all that junk in my trunk which is no small feat for a prim skirt!  My staple door-knocker hoop earrings by Burroughs Jewelry and the magical touch of the “All The Jazz” necklace from $GaNKeD$ pulled it all together for an epic win.  I was so taken with the shimmery blue of this ensemble that I traded in my everyday contacts for the piercing ice blue “tragic eyes” by Curio.

Pixel MILF?

Shock After The Party

On The Doorstep

I finally stumbled home from a party at the Burning Life Spring Fling during the wee hours of Sunday morning, glowing wings and all.  Needless to say, I was in no condition to deal with what I found on the doorstep once it came into focus.  Someone left a baby on the SHAG doorstep right underneath my lucky charms!  I stared on, in shock and horror, at the little bundle for a good half hour before deciding that the mushrooms from that party were playing a very evil trick on my mind.  I chalked it up to being “just in my head” and finally passed out on the doorstep staring at what I was sure was a very vivid hallucination.

I woke a few hours later with a headache and cough that suggested I should promptly figure out what the holy hell happened last night.  I felt my face against the cool, wood floor in the store and silently promised God that I would never misbehave again, go to church and confession every week, and chant the Hail Mary 75 times if everything was actually okay.  I slowly opened my eyes, wondering when the pounding in my head would stop, and the silhouette of of a small basinet came into view.  Images from the night before began flashing through my head at break-neck speed when the crystal, clear memory of finding a baby on the doorstep cut right through the hangover haze and physically jolted me upright.  In a state of utter panic I sat there in the doorway desperately trying to get my bearings, using my tactile sense to gauge the normality of the situation like a demented Helen Keller while I waited for my vision to catch up.  I was starting to think that the situation couldn’t be that bad since I was still clothed, had all of my hair and both of my shoes on when the empty basinet came into focus.  OH MY GOD … it had escaped!  I clawed my way up the side of the doorway until I was standing as firmly as one can stand after a night of debauchery and immediately scanned the store.

I saw it over by the tequila and began making my way there through the Sunday lag and last night’s hangover.  By the time I chased it down through a wake of broken home decor and fallen lamps, the little bugger was all the way over by the Disco Sh!t.  Just as I started, “YOU LITTLE BAS…” this (really hot) guy showed up and I froze mid-scream.

MILF Hunter 01 

He raised a brow, “Bastard?  Is that his given name?”  I looked away from it over to the hottie and became acutely aware that I probably looked like some new Mommy Dearest hybrid carrying only the very worst mothering skills of Joan Crawford and Courtney Love.  Even I was horrified by the scene.

“Someone left him here,” I explained.  I stood there, hoping to somehow redeem myself when I blurted out, “TARD!  That’s his name.”

“Tard?” he asked, visually repulsed.

“Yes.  It’s bad for his self-esteem to call him ‘Bastard’ even though I haven’t a clue who his father is and besides that, it’s abbreviated and versatile.”  Satisfied at having named my new charge and feeling slightly more in control of a situation that was completely, utterly, and obviously out of my control, I went on the offense.  “Why are you hunting for a MILF here anyways?  Can’t you see that this place is clearly NOT childproof?”

He shrugged, “I find that a lot of MILFs enjoy fabulous modern furniture and other high-quality home interior products.”  Without another word, he poofed and offered me a teleport to the Zooby’s Babies store in Zoobyville.  I scooped up Tard and accepted the teleport.  “Just get what you need for him here,” the MILF Hunter said and waited while I selected from among the fine selection of baby accessories.  As I shopped, I thought to myself that this guy was living proof that God had heard my silent hangover promises earlier.  I looked at Tard and realized I had unwittingly become a Pixel MILF.  While I finished shopping, I got on the horn with my girls over at T Junction to put them to work making a shirt that would put the rest of the world on notice about my new status.  In no time, they served up a little piece of T Junction heaven that showed the rest of the world I was, in fact, a bona fide Pixel MILF.  Having selected all the equipment I needed to properly care for Tard, I teleported home.  Of course I didn’t leave the MILF Hunter behind!  He joined us and sat patiently while I gave Tard a much-needed bath, appreciating my newfound status as a mother.

After I got the little bugger squeaky clean, the MILF Hunter helped me get him to fall asleep.

Of course, he didn’t want to sleep once I put him in his crib.

As the MILF Hunter looked on, I smiled and kissed my little Tard goodnight and recited the words to “Wynken, Blynken, and Nod” while waiting patiently for him to drift off.  At last, he was sound asleep.

And then the MILF Hunter moved in for the kill. :)

Winter Be Gone!

Shyayn On Flickr!

The wild children behind SecondLife’s Burning Life festivals are at it again!  They’re formally throwing off the chill of winter with the Burning Life Spring Fling.  When my friend Raven Haalan heard I was planning on getting something done today, he wasted no time in teleporting me away to a drum circle performance at the festival.  And I’ve been having a blast since I got here!  I highly recommend stopping by the festival if you’re looking for something fun and interactive to do today!

Details about the festival, including locations and event times can be found HERE.

While I’ve been busy playing flight attendant and riding on a boat, Ghanie Lane has been workin’ hard for the money.  Above are some of her most recent releases that you might want to grab if you plan on twisting some (sculpted) prims this weekend.  As per her usual fare, the sculpts are fantabulous and available for sale at a completely reasonable price.  I can’t wait to see what people do with the triple moons, eye of Horus, and Celtic pentacles sets because they’re some of the most unique sculpts I’ve seen hit the market in a very long time.  And the cage settings are long overdue for all the jewelers out there!

I’m On A Boat

On A Boat 1 05

On A Boat 1 02

“I’m On A Boat” is easily my favorite SNL short ever.  When this SNL musical short appeared, mocking all that is holy in hip hop culture while featuring the prominent hip hop guru, T-Pain, I was immediately hooked.  I was on a boat that day and every day thereafter for at least 4 months, so much so that one of my friends made me an in-world TV that would only play “I’m On A Boat” … on repeat.  Naturally, I was ecstatic upon discovering that one of my favorite prim magicians, Akasha Wachmann of CatniP, created a mini-land yacht inspired by the SNL skit I adore.  Sadly, I had already exhausted my monthly allowance for CatniP wares when I made the discovery, so I added the “Catnip – I’m On A Boat! Drivable Mini Yacht” to my XStreetSL favorites list.  The actual boat seats one with another spot for your street-surfing buddy, REZZES UNLIMITED ADDITIONAL DOLPHIN VEHICLES on-touch for anyone else around, and even comes with a set of blue “flippy floppies.”

And yesterday was the day of reckoning!  I dusted off that listing and queued my very own boat for delivery.  I paused momentarily to admire the listing before hitting “buy now” and noticed that a few people left the primcess Akasha some nasty reviews.  Being unable to comprehend anything other than a 5-Star rating and a glowing review for anything from CatniP, I looked closer … and laughed really hard.  Apparently a few SecondLife residents completely missed the boat entirely and left statements on the product listing complaining that “the boat is so hard to steer” and “does not work … on water” as though they were really going to use this as a legitimate form of transportation or do something other than act like complete clowns while being on this boat.  And given the nature of the SNL skit that inspired this little creation, I don’t think anything could be more appropriate than SecondLife residents expressing terminal butt hurt on XStreetSL over being unable to actually use it for something other than lulz.

The Girlie Show

The Girlie Show 02

The Girlie Show 05

I suspect that it’s because I can’t get enough of the new skin I’m in by Chaisuki, but I have really had trouble putting clothes on lately.  Fortunately, the good people over at Rozoregalia understand that not all outfits actually require clothing and released some very original, edgy breast plates to cover (one of) my pixel nips.  When I saw them I was instantly transported back to pre-Gaga times when the original Material Girl reigned supreme, during her post-Erotica promotion, “The Girlie Show World Tour.” 

While the breast plate is indisputably the pièce de résistance of this barely-there ensemble, I think the Rozoregalia Rosenkavalier hat ranks a very close and complementary second.  And because my girlie show is almost always about the most bitchin’ accessories I can get my hands on, I left no stone unturned in locating jewelry that could stand up amongst these heavy-hitters.  I found the perfect earrings at glow studio.  Fantastically big and complete with animated textures, these little door-knockers fit the bill.  I added some satin gloves and lace panties that show just the right amount of cheek along with some dangerously high heels and called it done.

Easter is right around the corner, so I hope you’ve got your little pixel butts ready for bunny mania.  Oh wait, I think I remember seeing something about bunnies.  (Ozimals?)  Anyways, the fabulous Miss Ghanie Lane of Ghanie Lane Sculpt Maps has already gotten me in the spirit with her newly-released Anime Bunny Ears!  Now we can all parade around in wonderful bunny ears, not just those of us that were around when someone got pissed at the Playboy people.

Of course, Terri Wardell of terri.tees has also served up some adorable shirts for the festivities.  (I just know that Dick Cheney will be flattered when he sees this post!)  She even threw in some action for the Pillsbury Doughboy who will happily proclaim “He is Risen” this Easter Sunday.  Not to be out done, the good folks over at .:-CatniP-:. have delivered us from evil belts with this Easter’s must-have accessory, the Easter Bunny Belt.

Tee Shirt Tuesday: Chase Away The Monday Blues

Tee Shirt Tuesday - T Junction 01

Tee Shirt Tuesday - T Junction 03

Tee Shirt Tuesday - T Junction 02

I was feeling a little blue yesterday, mostly because Monday sucks, when I remembered that I hadn’t stopped in at T Junction in a while.  It was just what I needed to chase away those Monday blues: witty, entertaining, and snarky statements plastered on the fronts of adorable shirts, priced to sell at L$ 75 a piece.  It just doesn’t get any better than that when you desperately need a shopping fix and are attempting to cram your shopping habit into a budget!  And I always enjoy shopping at T Junction because almost everything in the store gets a giggle or two out of me and gives me pause to wonder what story or incident prompted the T Junction divas to make a given shirt, especially since their shirts never fail to remind me of places, people, and things I encounter everyday.

For this comfortable Tee Shirt Tuesday, I wore some damaged jeans that scream “comfort” along with my prized hoop earrings from Burroughs Jewelry, and this killer hair that I positively adore from Uncleweb Studio.  Last, but most certainly not least, the skin I’m in is my very favorite skin in recent memory and new skin-of-choice, the beautiful Brianna by Chai Kazan for Chaisuki.

Go Higher…

Mile High Club 01

Mile High Interior 01

Mile High Interior 02

Mile High Interior 03

Times are hard and getting harder, so I jumped for joy when I was recently offered a position as a flight attendant by a company that provides private, chartered jumbo jets to the rich and fabulous.  The human resources lady said I had been hand-picked to join the team by corporate scouts assigned the task of ferreting out the finest pixels on the grid.  I was flattered and smiled as she handed me my new uniform, a superb, super sexy little number from Blacklace.  I was slightly puzzled when she said that they had gotten lucky finding “pro” talent like me since I don’t have any previous experience as a flight attendant.  But I didn’t want to ask too many questions or seem incompetent, so I just smiled while I snatched up my uniform and headed off to check out my new office. 

Turns out the company’s jets are provided exclusively by Captive Elegance, an organization that specializes in creating larger-than-life jumbo jet playgrounds for those with discerning taste.  My first flight was to be on the brand new Dominatore XIV, a massive jet with three decks housing the jet’s nightclub, bars and seating areas, conference rooms, bedroom, hot tub, and two restrooms with fully-functional showers and sinks.  I was assigned the task of catering to two rock stars that had been on vacation in Amsterdam during the scheduled overnight flight back to the US.

Mile High Club Passengers

I greeted the passengers after they were safely on-board and explained that I would be at their disposal for the duration of the flight.  They wasted no time in putting me to work and proving that their hiatus in Amsterdam had done nothing to quench their thirst for booze or women.  They retired to the nightclub and ordered up shot-after-shot of tequila.  Thankfully, the tips flowed as easily as the booze.

Mile High - Workin Hard For The Money 02

Mile High - Workin Hard For The Money 01

They promised they would complain to my new employer if I didn’t drink too, so I acquiesced and before long was enjoying myself as much as the rock star royalty I was being paid to entertain.  Alas, my rock star clientele decided they’d had enough of the drink and asked me to show them to the jet’s sleeping quarters.  I straightened my hat and tie and lead the way to the the bedroom suite on the top deck.  Before I could make my exit, the spiky-haired gentleman stopped me.  “Hang on… There’s only one bed.”  I stared blankly at him and nodded.  “We have to get some sleep for our World Tour that starts tomorrow.  And since there’s only one bed it looks like you’re going to have to crawl in there with us, because two drunk, adult men sleeping in the same bed without a woman just isn’t right.”  Either they were hot enough or I was drunk enough, or some combination of the two, that I didn’t argue.  I peeled off the outer layer of my new uniform and jumped in bed.  Coincidentally, the uniform from Blacklace included some excellent lingerie!

Playing A Mile High 01

I got a little more than I bargained for when I jumped into that giant bed.  My new rock star pals got friendly.  Really friendly…

Get Lucky!

Get Lucky 01

Get Lucky 03

I love holidays, and St. Patrick’s Day is no exception!  What’s not to love about a holiday when we all don something green, swill Guinness until we kiss other people irrespective of national heritage and feel just a little bit lucky?  Nothing of course, unless you haven’t been liberally applying lip balm or haven’t found a St. Paddy’s Day outfit that will make sure they’re lining up to kiss you.

If you’ve been too busy to find something to wear for St. Patrick’s Day, I suggest you grab your pints of Guinness and head on over to A Touch of Ireland where there’s a huge selection of quality, reasonably-priced outfits made for those of you who are looking to get lucky.  I grabbed everything I could find, but chose the St. Pat’s Corset Set as my lucky charm for today.  This little number has win written all over it and the totally modifiable prim attachments are, as always, supremely well-crafted at the hands of AliciaKay and Meekal Kilara.  (Don’t forget to stagger around the West of Ireland sims after you’ve stopped off at A Touch of Ireland, they raise money year-round to support a great cause.)

Get Lucky 02

Never to be outdone when it comes to making sure you have what you need to get lucky, Ms. Misti Merryman of $GaNKeD$ blessed the grid with more completely bitchin’ jewelry … for FREE.  Grab the $GaNKeD$ Lucky Clover Set if you haven’t already done so because nothing in the history of Second Life has ever looked this fabulous, sexy, and unique while dangling from your mouth.  I promise.  Happy St. Patrick’s Day!  Get Lucky and Be Safe!
