Majestic

Majestic (click here for a raw shot)

Majestic is the perfect word to describe the hat/headpiece I am wearing. It’s available in 3 different colors at The Fantasy Collective from Miamai right now. I wore it without any hair or even a hairbase as I think it looked best like that. I did try to find a hairbase that might work and perhaps help me not look as bald, but none of the ones I had looked right. I think the hat does work without any hair underneath it, gives it a cleaner look.

The dress is by Baiastice currently at Uber right now. The theme for Uber this month is Macabre. The dress also comes with a hat and gloves, which I am not wearing. The back of the dress is so well done that I decided to focus on that. The rigging on the dress is also perfection, the way the bones just fit on the back and move along with the body is just very cool. Probably one of the most interesting gowns on the grid currently, and sexy as well!

UPDATE: This image won the Fantasy Collective Flickr Contest. I’m so happy! Thank you TFC team. <3

Chandni

In Sanskrit, the name Chandni means moonlight and it’s one of the names my father uses for me when he’s being especially endearing. Since I have been begging Ms. Zaara Kohime to make a mesh lehenga for me for about 2 years now, she said that I get to name it. So here is the new […] Continue reading →

Brokenhearted

On Monday I will be 34 years old and I know as you grow older you are supposed to become more mature and sure of yourself, but my mind tends to focus on all the doubts and shortcomings I have. When you’re young you have all these plans…when you hit certain ages you’ll have accomplished […] Continue reading →

Vogue

This is my third post today. I don’t know what’s wrong with me, but I am inspired so I’m taking advantage of it. People often ask me what inspires me. Recently, I have been very inspired by Vogue Magazine, and especially Vogue India. I know my pictures and styling don’t come anywhere close to the ones […] Continue reading →

A Second Life on Facebook

Recently Google announced that there are no more restrictions on what name you can use on Google+ therein allowing Second Life residents and others that use pseudonyms online to use the service under any name they please. I was extremely pleased to hear of this decision, but a little disheartened that Facebook doesn’t adapt a […] Continue reading →

The build I’ve used in all of the […] Continue reading →

Happy Ramadan!

(raw shot) It’s that time of the year again where I get cranky and moody while I fast with my loved ones during the daylight hours.
