ONE! One vampire fanboi paying tribute to a fallen colleague! 


TWO! My two children loved you as well! 


THREE! Three generations all around the world whose lives you touched.

Ah ah ah ahhhhhhhh!

Rest thee well, Jerry Nelson. We can't count the ways you'll be missed.

Gaga Gala

Okay - if you've ever even looked at my blog, my flickr, my plurkline or even just said hello to me in passing; you'll know one thing.

I love Lady Gaga.

Oh yes - I really am that mainstream and I'm completely unashamed of it. I've never pretended to be cool, just... cold.

I have a problem though. I'm finally getting to see her in concert this Saturday night - omg omg omg - and it hit me hard the other day. WHAT THE HELL AM I GOING TO WEAR? It's easy for me as Winter - he has flaming bras, polar bear coats and kermit jackets up the ying yang -  but not so much for the poor bastard whose head he has taken over. I have been seriously eyeing off everything in the house and office this week wondering if there's any way I could turn it into couture. My cat just doesn't feel safe any more.

Luckily... I can just get on my baddest Monster self right here.

I've willfully and somewhat guiltily deconstructed the Cascade dress from Epoque that was only available at the Blur installation two years ago, and edited what's left of it to match my glasses from Chic Zafari. Obviously you can no longer buy this item - sorry! - but the Warrior hair that I'm wearing also from Epoque is part of the current sale, all hairs half price.

On my bottom half it's all Ladies Who Lunch. Faint Paulse also gets it, and I'm wearing her mesh Laurella pants and Troopa boots. Finishing up my Little Monster Mash I'm in Damon skin from Tableau Vivant, Poker gloves from CheerNo, lipstick from Sorry.Asia and the Famous Lady ring from LaGyo.

Actually after posting this I may have some inspiration after all. Time to raid the kid's lego box!

Once Upon A Dream

Just a few tastes of the new; some assorted luciousness that found it's way into my life this weekend.

Fairy Tales 3 small

The new Cachet Hair from LeLutKa, meant for girls... I guess. Does anyone else remember when this brand used to be called Cachet? This comes in three styles, but the one that made me stop in my tracks was this pony, mesh heaven rigged to move with you.

Also, I now happily own this Maelle Shoulder Jewellery from Indy & Co. It comes in three different configurations of chains, and in a fullbright option. The earrings from from Pididdle; I have had these for a long time but they needed to be worn with this.

Fairy Tales 2 Small

From the epic Fairy Tales in 2012 event - these 2 lusts. This Damon skin by Tableau Vivant. It's chalky and creamy all at the same time and comes in six makeups - I decided to not wear the vampy one, can you believe it? 

Fairy Tales 1

Oh look; what a surprise. Winter's in a skirt again.  Could you blame me though? I have long admired Irie Campese of So Many Styles' aesthetic, but I've never been able to buy her clothes. I saw this haunting item at the Fairy Tales sim, and decided on a whim to try it on. I don't think I'll ever take it off, and it was a dream to shoot. Look at the way it moves!

I had been hoping that someone would make some really kickass male boots - Puss, hello? - but  I can hold out until the next year. It will take me that long to pick out all of these glass splinters from between my toes anyway.

DAMNIT, when's it gonna be MY turn to be a Princess?

I like to think that after almost 6 years in SL I'm fairly well travelled. However today my partner Eve asked me if I'd been to 2 Fish yet, I hadn't. Should we go now?  "Great!" said the ignorant vainpyre "I love Dr Suess!"

It wasn't Dr Seuss.

I was very unprepared.

After arriving and having a quick look around and delighting in the whimsical build "The Inevitability of Fate" I complimented the creator Rose Borchovski on how amazing it was. We mentioned my photos for a moment and I blithely commented back how I hoped I could do it justice. Eve and I wandered the sim, jumping on poseballs and snapping pictures. Then she asked if I had the sound on. I hadn't until then, so I did. And that's when everything snapped into place, and made shocking sense.

I still took a few of my substandard photos which I'm posting here, tiling issues and all. But I also turned off photographer eye and absorbed what was happening, the tale that was being told. It's interactive in that there are poses in all the installations so you become part of the history, plus there are triggers that when you walk through them, they hand you props and items to wear. There was more than one spot that was overwhelming and I came very close to having to leave. I have never been affected by a sim in Second Life like I have this one.

 I don't want to talk about it too much as I feel it's better off experienced rather than read about on my shallow fashion blog.  But you should go, you really should. Just be prepared to be challenged and leave yourself time to think. I myself took away from it a new perspective, and a reminder of what's important. You can also see Eve's view on the installation here.

Thank you, Rose Borchovski.

P.S. this post is dedicated to Craig, with best wishes for your recovery.

So my main modelling agency Avenue asked me if I'd teach a masterclass - their words, not mine! - on styling.

I wrote and presented my hour long lecture, and within that time I made the class do evil, unforgiveable things. Sure they had a purpose behind them, but it was also great for the lulz. You haven't lived until you've made a class full of weeping models go back to Ruth status. But of course the pressure was on for me to look like some fierce and fabulous GOD OF FASHION. And this is what I wore. I added a hat at the last minute after I took these pics... but I'm happy to leave it off for this post.




Because you should always start with the basics... and if sequinned chartreuse hotpants aren't a staple for any wardrobe? I don't know what is.

My Turn!

Whore Banner


So like there's this Whore Couture Festival that's just opened, right? And I was super excited to see it, coz slutwear is usually so under represented on the feeds. I mean like, no one blogs it everrrrr. And I had been just bursting to let my inner manwhore out, I mean I'm usually totally demure and frigid and stuffs.* So I was all like I wanna join in too!


Can you believe that I already owned everything in this post apart from my tongue and facial decoration? You can? I don't know if I really got the look down right though; I'm sadfacing pretty hardcore about that, you'd be able to tell from my super downturned lips if I had closed them in the past year or so. I just couldn't get my thighs to spread more than a foot apart like the other bloggers.

Whore Face

Kiss kiss?


So Bouncer Criss and I dared each other on plurk to out slut each other. Or something, I was too busy hunting the feeds for that vagina lollipop to pay any real attention. Watch his blog, I'm sure he'll blow mine efforts out of the water soon. And seriously - the Whore Couture Fair does seem to have some pretty fun stuff out. I'm not judging, swear - just having fun.

*Just ignore what the Alura Times was saying about me. That was so NOT me on the floor underneath Monica, Takeshi and Rusch.
