Coming Around Again

Mesh has been around the Grid for nearly two years now, and many creators have tried their hand at it. It has been fun to watch different people learn and develop their skills during that time.

Coming Around Again

Still one of my favourite stores is Mon Tissu. Always beautifully constructed and textured

Coming Around Again

The clothing at Mon Tissu has no pretensions about it – the garments are things that most of us wear in our day to day lives

Coming Around Again

There is a definite realism to the vibrant colours and textures

Coming Around Again

It’s enough to draw us back again and again!

More of my finds at The Arcade this month!

Sheep Dreaming

The delightful Fluffy Sheep Hat from the Teefy Gacha jumped out at me and I knew I just needed it

You can also find the Aurora nightie at the Teefy Gacha machine. I’m also wearing new hair from Lelutka

This ensemble was fun to put together. The top and pants are from the Emery Gacha, and the shoes from the Ingenue Gacha

The Unexpected Guests

There I was, one sunny Sunday afternoon, spending a relaxing weekend in my shack away from home. To my great surprise, I was buzzed by a mini alien ship!

The Unexpected Guests

A baby alien! Or maybe a mini…but where there’s junior, there must be Mother….

The Unexpected Guests

And there she is, minus Mothership, quietly sitting in *my* chair

The Unexpected Guests

I quickly changed into something a little more elegant, as you do when Unexpected Guests arrive

The Unexpected Guests

….and cast my eyes across the horizon for more visitors to while away my afternoon

Collabor88 2nd Birthday ~ A Generation in Flames

The theme of Collabor88 for it’s special 2nd Birthday event is the Roaring Twenties. This was a period in the earlier part of the 20th century often referred to as ‘the lost generation’ and ‘the generation in flames’. This was for a number of reasons, not least of which was the tragically high loss of youth to the ravages of World War One. This generation suffered doubly by going off to another Word War within their life times.

But in the between times, youth exhilarated in being alive. This was the generation that paved the way for great social, political and economic change throughout the twentieth century. This was a time when mothers despaired of their daughters antics, when jazz became alive, when hemlines raised themselves dramatically and when hair was CUT!

I have a selection of photos of items from Collabor88. The final photo is a nude, which I rarely do. You won’t be able to see it in the feeds – you will have to click on my blog link to actually see it. I apologise in advance if this offends anyone, however I am rather pleased with the result. I was aiming for an expression of exuberance in youth. I hope I hit the mark!
