Party In The Back @ TART

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!

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.

It’s A Hoe Down!

PimpTwoHoes - By Carissa Crimson

It's A Hoe Down 04

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!

A Day With ~*GOD*~

A Day With GOD 16

A Day With GOD 10

A Day With GOD

Luck, Inc. really made my short list for last week when they released a dress even shorter than I thought possible and the new releases from MANDALA are still blowing my mind, but all I really wanted to do was spend a day with ~*GOD*~.  In case you didn’t know, the team of extraordinarily skilled artists and visionaries at ~*GOD*~ have assembled a magical place that simultaneously shows the world what simulators are really for and justifies the purchase of the high-dollar graphics card that you’ll be dying to make once you’ve been in the Garden of Dreams.

A Day With GOD 07

I didn’t get a Second Life to experience the sights, sounds, and imagery that is readily-available in atom’s world, so I’m naturally drawn to the amazing fields of flowers and wheat filled with butterflies and the kind of dreams that could only be fulfilled in a world where anything is possible.  It’s as if someone recreated mother nature from the perspective of all the magical creatures that might inhabit a garden or forest and then outfitted it with tons of smaller environments that are completely conducive to the way we live, socialize, and communicate in a virtual world.  Along with the trees, flowers, forests, and ponds that I just know are secretly inhabited by huge colonies of tiny faeries and nymphs, I found that almost everything around the Garden of Dreams is filled with numerous poses and animations that let me play to my heart’s content and feel right at home.  And if you wander even just a few meters away from the landing point you’ll stumble upon little environmental enclaves that really take you to places filled with dreams.

A Day With GOD 05

A Day With GOD 12

Visit the Garden of Dreams in SecondLife!  And while you’re there, make sure you look for the party, because it’s almost as wild as the sim where it all goes down.
