Avatar Transformation Challenge

Avatar Transformation Challenge

Meme instructions: Transform your avatar completely so that even your friends wouldn’t recognize you. Don’t forget to share the link to your image in the comments and add your pictures to the Blog Memes flickr group.

This week’s Monday Meme idea was provided by Mr. Skell Dagger. Several months ago he was kind enough to email me a bunch of ideas for Monday memes, some of which I’ve already done. This idea was an interesting one to me, however he had a rule: you couldn’t change genders or species. I think I broke his rule though by becoming a fairy so if you guys decide to break the rules too, you can just blame me. :P

I decided to wear one of the VCO fairy mesh heads currently available at the Arcade. I’m wearing the Vera Rare head which you can see in this image on the designer’s flickr. The Vera head is the only one that comes with the makeup HUD which I honestly didn’t play with yet. The head came with its own skin and shape as well, which I am wearing. The shape is a very short fairy shape. The head was not working well with my Maitreya or my SLink mesh bodies at all. But I didn’t really spend a lot of time on that trying to see if I can make it work somehow. I’ll try again later.

I have not had a chance to read everyone’s responses for last week’s meme. I’ve been feeling a bit under the weather the past few days, that’s why I was a bit delayed today as well. Hopefully I’ll finish reading them in a couple of days once I feel better. Thank you all so much for participating so often and I hope you can participate this week as well! <3

The Arcade Gacha Events returns March 1st and Zaara is taking us all to Jodhpur, India this round. Jodhpur is the second largest city in the Indian state of Rajasthan.

Avatar in a Box Challenge

The lovely Vanessa Blaylock has started a new challenge called Avatar in a Box! She was inspired by Hugh Kretschmer‘s 2006 art/fashion piece Special Delivery where he lovingly assembled outfits and body parts in a box, which you can see in her post. I didn’t really want to cut up my avatar in pieces like […] Continue reading →

Mrs. Robinson

Botgirl called me Mrs. Robinson earlier today and that sort of inspired this post, even though I am completely innocent and have even sworn off men for the rest of my life (or until I meet a really hot guy). But yeah, I did have fun dressing Manberry up like a schoolboy and photoshopping a […] Continue reading →

Seducing the Butler

(click here for raw shot of selfie) It’s hard work trying to seduce an inanimate mesh object, but the butlers from Mutresse for this round of Arcade are so lifelike that from the pictures, you’d think I didn’t have any trouble at all. I mean, I DID get him to take a selfie with me. […] Continue reading →

Intellectual Conversations

There was someone I used to have long intellectual conversations with about politics, religion, finance, convenience stores (don’t ask), fashion, food, movies, tv shows, and so much more. That person is no longer in my life and I kind of miss and crave the all-nighters we used to have just talking our ears off. It’s funny […] Continue reading →

Paint the town red

Junbug has released a gorgeous gown for FaMESHed this round so I got all dressed up and felt like painting the town red. I asked the handsome Mr. Akami to take me dancing and not only did he take me dancing, he also serenaded me on skype as I took these pictures. I can’t deny […] Continue reading →

The Walking Dead

I am totally late to the party but several weeks ago I started watching “The Walking Dead” on Netflix and now I’m totally addicted. However, I have a somewhat love/hate relationship with that show. I love the story line and show itself but the gore and zombies are giving me some serious nightmares. I’m only […] Continue reading →

The Maharani’s Boudoir

Maharani is sanskrit for a very great Princess, who ranks above the queen. So she is the queen of all queens and the wife of the Maharaja. Zaara Kohime has created a vanity set which you would find in a Maharani’s Boudoir for this September’s Arcade Gacha Events. You can see the complete set as […] Continue reading →

The Winter Season Challenge

Even though Winter Solstice isn’t till December 21st, I still decided to do this meme today because I always see the starting of December as the start of the Winter season. So today’s post is of course about Winter, the season…not the bratty vampire. Meme Instructions: Take a wintery picture and/or answer the following questions […] Continue reading →

My Wish for You!

“This is my wish for you: Comfort on difficult days, smiles when sadness intrudes, rainbows to follow the clouds, laughter to kiss your lips, sunsets to warm your heart, hugs when spirits sag, beauty for your eyes to see, friendships to brighten your being, faith so that you can believe, confidence for when you doubt, […] Continue reading →

Relentless Rain

One childhood memory that always comes back to me is the relentless rain during hurricane season. It fell incessantly. At night, the sound of the raindrops were like a lullaby, they just engulfed you. That’s how you’ll feel on the 2304 RAIN sim. The sound of the rain is almost hypnotic and it’s definitely beautiful […] Continue reading →

Disconcertion

As you can see, I kind of went photoshop crazy today. I’m not really sure where I was going with this image. It kind of reminds me of my life right now, hopefully I’ll get it all in order soon. Here’s a link to the raw image so you can have a clearer look at […] Continue reading →
