Juggling Raccoons

Juggling Raccoons (click here for a raw shot)

Every time The Arcade Gacha event is about to start there are always a few designers I’m always looking forward to. Mutresse is one of those designers. They create the most interesting characters, from adorable Garden Gnomes to sexy Butlers you can’t help but flirt with. This time around they are releasing these incredible animated raccoons. They are so life-like and each one has its own adorable animation. There are 20 to collect in all, 3 of them being rares. Check out this video on the Mutresse flickr stream to see some of them in action. They will be available at the Arcade starting September 1st!

Skin designer Tuli Asturias has had a major release recently. Not only has she released a new skin named Willow, but has also made mesh elf ears and HUD controlled teeth, both coming with many options to play with.

Willow comes with 4 eyebrow colours on skin, 5 eyeshadow tattoos, 10 lipstick tattoos, 2 additional cleavages on tattoos and undershirt layers and she has also released appliers for all three Maitreya, SLink and Belleza mesh bodies.

The mesh ears are just for Tuli skin owners because they only come with textures that match the 2015 Tuli skin tone range and cannot be tinted. They come in two versions, one of them called basic that can be adjusted to have no accessories at all.

The teeth are not mesh, but they are a texture based attachment which you wear with an alpha layer and using the HUD you have many options for braces, regular, gapped and vampire teeth.

The Arcade starts tomorrow so don’t forget to check out the Arcade shopping guide and start working on your wish lists!

Skybox Hermit

(click here for a raw shot) Are you a skybox hermit? I can be at times, but I also like exploring the grid. I like scouting locations for shoots or just exploring the creativity of Second Life content creators. However, I can also be quite anti-social and just want to keep to myself, dress up […] Continue reading →

Dum Maaro Dum

Dum maaro dum literally translates into ‘take another hit’ and it was the name of a very famous bollywood song in the 1970s, then reworked in 2011. I thought the song fit well with the theme of Zaara’s Arcade items this month. This month for the Arcade Zaara is inviting you all to escape to […] Continue reading →

Lazy Sunday Morning

So it may not be morning or even a Sunday when you are reading this post, but this is what I imagine to be a very relaxing Sunday morning. The Lazy Sunday Morning set from Erratic at the Arcade this round has some of my most favorite pieces in a gacha ever. First is this […] Continue reading →

Long Live the Queen!

Whenever I put on any kind of crown in Second Life, I admit to feeling a bit like royalty. Who wouldn’t though with this crown? It’s just magnificent! Below is a full shot of the crown because even though I love the closeup shot of my face, I really did want to show you the […] Continue reading →

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 […] Continue reading →

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 →
