Get Pinked!

Pink Shirt Day has spread to our little corner of InWorldz, thanks to a post by Mera Kranfel who relayed the information and touching story about a young Canadian boy targeted by bullies on his first day of school, story on Honour’s blog.  Thanks Mera!

To show my appreciation for this great cause, and because I’m a big softie always looking out for the underdog, I’m sporting pink in a big way today.  My quest in the search for pink on the grid was further triggered by a Twitter post by Leanna Caerndow who wanted to find “pink clothes IW that aren’t either tarty or barbie”.

 In this look, I found a fabulous pink casual flowered sweater at Indie Rose, and paired it with the great sculpted 2-tier skirt from Sassy, leopard print stockings from Random Rosie, and Volo shoes by Coriander. Hair is the lovely Felicity by Ophelia Rose of Wish! Skin is Ethereal by Talia Fournier of Paparazzi, with Everyday Lashes layer by B[u]Y Me!  A little fun pose “Kill Bill” by Lydia Cremourne of Posture Perfect.  Look out!  Hoping this comes across as neither “tarty” nor “barbie”.  Either way I had fun with it!!
 

Take a stand and join thousands of people across the world on Pink Shirt Day.  Even if you don’t have anything to wear in your real life wardrobe, there’s plenty to be had in the virtual world of your choosing, and often for mere pennies or even free. 

Talia Fournier of Paparazzi has generously donated a new shirt for both men and women, which can be found for FREE in her shop upstairs on the Equinox Sim (in InWorldz).  Love it!  Bullies can kiss my little donkey!  Cute, yes?!  Best part is, it’s copy and transferable so you can share it with your friends! Thank you Talia!

I have to admit… getting Pinked was more than a bit addictive!  I also found a few other looks I hope you’ll enjoy. 

Great styles to keep you in the pink and help show your support for such a noble cause. 

Here we have fantastic hair by Ophelia Rose of Wish, the Olivia Cropped Sweater and Vintage Striped Sweater by Stellar, Jeans by Stellar and Mwah! and some great new Volo training shoes by Coriander

Share the love… and Get Pinked!

My Sweetheart – Tesoromio

There’s a sweet new clothing store in InWorldz called Tesoromio, which means “my sweetheart”.  And sweet it is, and so is the designer, Nirmanakaya Yalin. 

Visit her shop Tesoromio on the Capricorn sim and find this darling Blue Lace dress, right next to the group joiner board.  It has an optional short sleeved lace jacket, or you can wear it without.

There is also an adorable pair of pajamas for both men and women as the Valentine’s gift there, but unfortunately my viewer was acting up and I was not able to get a photo for you.

While browsing the shop, I found a few more great things to take exploring to Equinox.  This flirty flowery dress just had to be mine.  So springy, and I love the little sweater.  Great for the transition to spring, when it’s still a bit chilly out.

 Did you know the snow has all melted, the ice is no more.. and spring is coming.  Bit by lovely bit, the flowers are blooming.  There are cuddles and hugs tucked here and there to enjoy with your sweetheart.  I hope you go see Equinox as it transitions through the seasons.  It’s a magical place!

Another outfit, I’m pairing the purple capris with the violet hoodie pullover.  Ok not all the snow has melted.  If you’re wandering up in the hills there you might want a sweater!

 Her Crosstop shirt and bra/panty set is delightful, and you can see here a bit more of the detailing on the capris. 

I apologize for the fuzzy images.  This makeshift computer of mine was stuggling a bit today.  But I wanted to let you know about this fun new shop and hope you’re able to go visit and see the rest.

Have a lovely day!

A-Musing

 Ever since my computer died and ate my hard drive, I’ve been feeling like the creative wind was taken right out of my sails. So yesterday, when Botgirl Questi posted some creative inspirations on Twitter, I finally pulled it together enough to start a new design. I know, about time, right?

I’ve been working on a new little dress that I would like to finish before Valentine’s day, and while I’ve got the textures mostly completed, I’m having a bear of a time getting the skirt to link up.  In short, it’s not.  I gave up last night and now all day I’ve been sneaking back in to try to link, to no avail.  Perhaps I’m trying to hard and need to let go and let Muse take over. Perhaps I should have made it in black and grey as an “Anti-Valentine’s” dress, which seems to be popular these days.  Maybe I still will.  Or maybe I need to just scrap it and start over.

For some reason, whenever I try to stand on a pose stand while in “busy” mode, my viewer takes me on an imaginary field trip to the far corner of the sim, under water, with  my ankles up around my ears, surrounded by all kinds of other forgotten sim junk that seems magnetized to go to this very spot. 

Makes it very hard to build anything, but the trick to get back out (even though you’re not really there) is to try to click yourself into appearance mode and then back out.  Then *poof* your viewer should snap you back to where your av really is.  At least, usually.  Sometimes it then shoots you off somwhere into space with a nice ocean view, and pretzel legs. *Sigh* Well, at least I’m getting a good stretch!

So, the dress, let’s just call it “Muse”, is coming along and may or may not end up looking like a lampshade, though you could wear it that way I suppose, on your head, if you want. I suppose I could make it touch on/off for light.  Muses.

A-Musingly Yours,

Boudica
