I recently found a new-to-me store on marketplace, Just Because. The mesh is great quality but what I love is that they have fitmesh for the Maitreya body (and other mesh bodies) that fits perfectly. The prices are great as well. Both the top and bottom I’m wearing were only L$75 each.
The hip chain is my favorite thing on the grid recently. It’s from Maxi Gossamer, currently at Collabor88. As always with Maxi’s jewelry, it is scripted providing both gold and silver metals as well as several color combinations for the pearls.
I broke out one of the LeLutka mesh heads again because I loved the eyebrows Aida created for this Tecla Mermaid skin applier. They’re thick and a bit messy, perfection.
Hair Fair starts tomorrow, July 11th and runs till the 26th. Before heading over tomorrow to fight the lag, I suggest joining the Hair Fair DEMO group. There are already around 50 DEMOs in the group for you to try and decide if you want to buy them before you even go to the fair. Makes things a lot easier. One thing I do suggest is turning group notices off once you join or you’ll probably end up capping. You can also keep an eye on the Hair Fair Flickr Group for more previews.
I’m wearing one of the hairs that LeLutka will have at the fair. I like all four styles they have available. They have a very windswept, summery and natural look.
It’s Friday and I haven’t done a Friday Find or Weekly Roundup in a while, hopefully I’ll be able to catch up on those soon. For now you can click over to The Drax Files Podcast and catch up on any you have missed recently.

ManBerry was feeling left out and wanted to do the Yearbook Challenge too so I took him down to The Mens Dept and got him all outfitted for school.

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.

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 →
There is a new club on the grid by the name of !ndustry. Harlow Heslop blogged about it earlier and then I saw her plurking about a party going on there, so I figured I’d go and try to kill my graphics card by taking a picture in the crowd. The club is owned by […] Continue reading →
(click here for a raw shot) You may have noticed that I’ve been feeling a bit horny lately. Horns in this post and also my Warrior Princess post from the other day. I’ve never really worn horns before, but I’m kind of having fun with them now. Now I’m no expert in horns, but these ones seem […] Continue reading →

The lovely Lyrical Ember asked me to blog with her and since I’m on this journey to […] Continue reading →
