Take me to Jodhpur

Take me to Jodhpur

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. It is often referred to as the “Blue City” due to the vivid blue-painted houses that surround the infamous Mehrangarh Fort.

It is one of these blue houses that Zaara has so lovingly built for us to enjoy, along with a selection of furnishings and decor items that resonate with the colors of Jodhpur.

You can’t really see the blue color of the house that well in my pictures, so make sure to check out Zaara’s Flickr to see all of the images in detail and you can also click over to her plurk where she shared some real life images that she took herself when she visited Jodhpur and got inspired by it.

I also found this very beautiful video on The World of Travel youtube channel that shows more of the beauty of Jodhpur.

Zaara Kohime’s work has been inspiring my pictures for many years but now her work also inspires me to travel and see more of the world. Jodhpur is now on my list of must-see cities!

Click over to the Arcade Shopping Guide’s page of Zaara’s items this round to see full details of this set, how much it is and the exact SLurl to the machine which will start working when they open their doors on the 1st of March. Before then, you can take the SLurl to the Zaara mainstore to see a version of this home rezzed with all of the furnishings.

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 →

I miss you

Have you ever missed someone so much that you hated yourself for it? Yeah, I hate myself right now. — Strawberry Singh (@strawberrysingh) May 30, 2014 The Arcade Gacha Events start on June 1st and the shopping guide has been released so you can start working on your shopping lists before it opens.

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 →

Weird Questions Meme

(click here for a raw shot) Before I start with today’s meme, I wanted to talk about the picture. Today’s image has nothing to do with the meme itself, but I just wanted to show off my new materials-ready cyber gauntlets that Sion Pearl sent me. Aren’t they totally sexy? I had to go all […] Continue reading →
