Before I get into the two pose huds and why you may need them, I just want to share a few things about what I’m wearing.
The poncho and jeans are both mesh. The poncho is from DECOmpose. There’s also a mens version of this poncho which you can see the sexy Carthalis wearing in his post here.
EDIT: Adding a quick note about the poncho because of Indigo Alecto’s comment below: I didn’t realize there was no demo to the poncho (which is unfortunate, all mesh clothing should have demos available), therefore here is a raw shot of the poncho and also these are the sizes it comes in: regular and large (no standard sizing availble). I am wearing the regular.
The jeans are from Maitreya and these particular ones in this color are only available to Maitreya VIP group members for 50% off. Details in this post and here’s a link to the Maitreya VIP group which is free to join.
Now on to the Pose HUDs.
Pose Anywhere 2.5
The first one I want to talk about is one I’ve blogged last year and use quite often. Pose Anywhere is one of my favorite pose huds that I use very often. You can check out my blog post about it last year, Pose Anywhere 2, which has a video tutorial and some more instructions. For this post I am going to focus on the upgrade for those who already own the 2.0, can go to the Pose Fair right now and get a FREE update to 2.5. You’ll find the updater there right now and after Pose Fair it will be available in the E2 Designs store by DavidThomas Scorbal.
Here’s what you can expect in the update: (totally stealing this off a notecard in the folder)
HUD now has an Organize button that leads to a convenient pose organization page where you can:
– Delete pose packs
– Rename pose packs
– Make backup copies of pose packs
– Delete individual poses from pose packs
The Pose Installer will allow either “install/replace” of an entire pose pack, OR an “Add” mode, where you can easily add poses to an existing pose pack already in the HUD.
It’s also easy to transfer all your current poses from your old hud into your new hud. Took me just a minute and I’m all setup with my new hud now.
If you don’t already own the hud from before, I suggest you pick it up from Pose Fair soon because it’s on special for L$549 at the fair, retail price is L$649.
The next hud I want to talk about is Animare. I don’t have much experience with Animare, but I did use it for this post and I have to tell you, it’s a lifesaver. Sometimes there are just some really fantastic poses I would love to use for my blog posts but I can’t because they don’t suit my body shape. Either my hand or another part of my body is misbehaving itself. This is where Animare comes in handy. You can use it to adjust any poses you have inworld, easily and within minutes. I got my hands out of my body in both these images very quickly and easily.
But that’s not all you can do with this hud, there’s so much more.
- Check out the Animare website for all the details.
- Buy the hud on marketplace
- and check out the detailed video
I hope you find both these HUDs as useful as I do. Don’t forget to check out Pose Fair soon. <3

A few weeks ago I was contacted by Linden Lab® to create an image with a music theme. I wasn’t sure exactly what to do. Then I remembered this adorable pose I had from Olive Juice and asked Mr. Prad Prathivi to come sit with me. I think this is one of my most favorite pictures that I have ever done, it means so much to me. That’s why I’m so happy that it’s on SecondLife.com today. (Remember to logout if you are logged in so you can see it)
Along with Mr. Prathivi and I, you will see Miaa Rebane, Faint Paulse, Harlow Heslop, Sixx Yangtz, Harper Beresford and Ivoni Miles. Just click on the arrows to see all of the images. Congrats to them all. <3
After submitting the above picture (which is pretty much a raw screen shot) I had played with the image more in photoshop and posted it on my flickr, so sharing it below. While processing the image, I was listening to "I love you forever” by the amazing Two Steps From Hell.
The couple’s pose in this image is by IsabellaGrace Baroque of Olive Juice. She will be giving this pose out for FREE at Pose Fair which will run from April 15th till May 5th. So remember to drop by the Olive Juice booth and pick up your free pose! <3
What Mr. Prathivi is wearing:
Shirt: Aoharu – Silk Shirt (Black)
Jeans: Zaara – Classic Jeans (Ash)
Shoes: Kari – Kicks Shoes
What I’m wearing:
Jeans: Maitreya Mesh Jeans
Jewels: Je Suis and Erratic
Shoes: Soreal Sneakers
My apologies ahead of time because this post might be a bit picture heavy. I got my hands on this gorgeous new skin from PXL a few days ago and I have been having loads of fun snapping up pics in it. Kate has now been officially released and you can find it at the PXL mainstore. Check out the PXL blog for all the details on Kate and see pictures of the 6 tones it comes in. I’m wearing the dark tone in this post. For a raw shot of me wearing this skin, check out my plurk here.
The rest of the items I’m wearing are all mesh. I am so excited to be fully meshed out. Starting with my clothes, my tank is from coldlogic and my jeans are from Maitreya. These are two of my favorite shops for stylish mesh items at the moment.
My hair is from Discord Designs and I am so happy to see my most favorite braids are available in mesh now. There is more mesh goodness being released from Discord Designs, check out the flickr for pics.
The bag and shoes I have are also both mesh and both are exclusives at OGlam right now. Check out the OGlam blog for all the other details and exclusives.
The earrings I’m wearing are also mesh and are available at Aura. You will find many other gorgeous mesh items at Aura.
Finally, I am so totally loving these new poses from Diesel Works. They are named Colleen and they are just full of attitude!
I hope y’all have a wonderful Easter weekend. Happy shopping everyone! <3

It’s been a while since I’ve done a male fashion post on my blog so I thought I should bring it back with a bang by introducing you to one of the sexiest men in my friend list. I’ve known Mr. Claudius Fouroux for a few years now and I cannot say that I have ever seen him look anything but completely drool worthy. He may look like a gorean master to you in this post, however, he’s one of the most brilliant male stylists I’ve seen on the grid. Every time I have seen him he always has a completely new look that he’s been playing around with. My favorite was when he had his dreadlocks, I was just swooning! I wish I had taken a pic back then.
Rumor has it that Mr. Fouroux is quite the ladies man, although I haven’t really seen anything to back that up, but I thought I should mention it in any case to make this post more scandalous. Sorry Claud, but you knew I was gonna throw you under the bus when you signed up for this! <3
When Mr. Fouroux is not busy being his incredibly handsome self in SL, I really have no idea what else he does or what his likes and dislikes are. He’s actually kind of a mystery. I know he used to be a fashion blogger back in the day, but I really haven’t seen him doing much lately. Perhaps we should all do some investigating. :P
A big thank you to Mr. Claudius Fouroux for taking the time out of his busy shagging schedule and posing for me. Also a big thank you to Miss Zaara Kohime for joining us in this photoshoot to be one of his harem girls.

As soon as I put on these new boots from Gos, only one word came to mind: naughty. These shoes are so sexy, they’re the kind that you keep on during sex. So of course I headed over to Koinup Places to find the perfect location where these would fit in and I stumbled upon The Forbidden City. The build and texturing is all very well done. However, it is a roleplay sim so please remember to pick up and wear the observer tag that’s available at the entrance before venturing on further.
I wanted to find a nice sitting pose to really show off the boots so I turned to Exposeur’s recent releases. I love how the body doesn’t distort with these poses. You can find the latest pack of 24 poses from Exposeur on the marketplace for only L$100.
It’s my spring break this week so I finally have some time to just relax and do nothing for a while. I think I’m going to take full advantage, although I may be forced to go to Disney for a few a days. Hopefully I’ll get a chance to blog more often as well.
