Captured

RYRByrne

I don’t know what came over me.
Maybe it was his music.
His voice, perhaps.
Kindness, Attention he paid, Patience.
Whatever it was..
I. Was. Captured.

Ever met someone and all circumstances go out the window?
You shake yourself trying to wake up — asking,
“Are you crazy” with the obvious answer being
“Hell yes!”

There is no story without pain and pain
always comes with a story.
It’s times like these that I pull myself up by a tuft of my fur,
take a deep cleansing breath and
move forward one determined step at a time.
Do I smile?
Nope.
That’d be fake and I’m on the real.
How do I dress?
Sexy.
Powerful.
Byrne.

Byrne, owner and designer of Byrne Boutique has created
an outfit that I simply had to blog.
Her and I have been friends for years and although she
did not directly ask me to blog her Rock Your Rack Exclusive
called Ronnie, she probably knew I would.

The coloooor!
Ronnie hits me all upside my Captured head with bountiful
boldness that’s sticky sweet.
Being a Long Dress, Crocheted Bra (Maitreya & Omega Appliers)
and a Bouffant Hairdo (not shown),
Ronnie makes the wrong seem right.
Coming in three color options, she is compatible with most Mesh Bodies.

My RYR Friendship ties don’t end with Byrne…

RYRAlmaLuna
Lua Vendetta.
I’d seen her throughout my years as a model,
but it wasn’t until a Halloween show where
she was a Prom Queen doing a Bob Ross (beating the devil out)
on a rival’s head that all communication barriers crumbled for me.
I laughed my ass off and still to this day, I can’t shake that image.
Yes, Lua.
This is Zoomy Bluebird.
Thank you for instilling such a wonderful memory
and continuing with LUNA.
Bringing us Body Art Music, a Limited manicure and pedicure set
at Rock Your Rack, LUNA makes your nails sing.
Created for Slink, Dynamics, Vista Bento, Belleza and Maitreya,
Body Art Music gives you the option to change your nails Black
as pictured above or White.

Onix.
Being the newest friend of the three,
I met Onix earlier this year.
She’s a beautiful person on the inside and knows how
to present that beauty outwardly.
Case in point: ALMA Makeup.

Pampa is a unique set of three lipsticks created by ALMA.
Inspired by “Argentinian-Gaucha Culture“, Onix has offered
these lippies to Rock Your Rack as a 100% donation.
Pictured above, they are available for Lelutka, Catwa
and Omega Heads only and is a Limited Edition set.
So once she’s gone, you’re out of luck.

My advice?
Come to Rock Your Rack and be Captured…..

Tell The Truth

RYRDBSCabbitPoint

I’ve gained weight, haven’t I?
Should I get plastic surgery?
Does my butt look like an end table in this dress?

Loaded questions!
To whom those are addressed to, most know that to answer them straight forward is asking for an invitation to sudden death.
There is a way to tell the truth, however, without needless pain and suffering…

If you have, it’s all in the right places.
Why get a breast lift when I can hold them for you for free?
An end table should be so lucky.

BOOYAH!
You live another day.
However, come here for a second…
Does my butt look like an end table in this dress?

This dress is called Burn Orange Japanese Silk and
Designs By Soosy (DBS) is the creator.
Bright with colors bursting from it’s seams, this mini
is compatible with Belleza, Maitreya and Slink Mesh Bodies.
For the daring, panties aren’t included.
However, DBS  has included Mocca Stockings via an Omega Applier
to give your legs some umpf.

RYRPallets

As far as end tables are concerned,
Anna’s Attic has that covered with the Beats Pallet Set.
I have a long history with pallets, so sitting on Anna’s
comfy couch brought back memories.
At first, I thought this set was dubbed Beats because of
it’s use of pallets.  It’s no secret that the wooden flats
take quite a beating carrying load after load of
precious cargo.  But, that’s not what Anna had in mind.
You see, the couch has 8 single dances and 1 Couples
Sway dance included along with several sitting animations.
The DJ Turntable comes with it’s own animation allowing
you to play your tunes and rock out all at the same time.
So, the Beats part of this set’s name is in reference to the music
you’ll be bopping to while using it.
The remainder of  the set is a Pallet Table, End Table, 2 sets of Headphones
and a Neon Lava Lamp.

Both creations from DBS and Anna’s Attics can be found at Rock Your Rack.
If you haven’t heard, Rock Your Rack is a charity even for breast cancer.
 Now in it’s 6th year, RYR involves 72 Designers,
features 2D/3D Artists and 3 Tribute Concerts.
Is that all?
NOPE!
Rock is also rocking it with 23 DJ Dance Parties, 12 Live Music Artist Shows, 6 Fashion Shows, the 10L Hunt and Silent Auctions.
It is an all inclusive event where there is literally something for everybody.

Beginning September 29th and lasting until October 13th,
the time has come for us to help raise money for such a
worthy cause.
You know you wanna.
Come on.
Tell the truth…..

Smooch

RYRAvadaHuntClose

I couldn’t breathe.

His big beautiful brown lips completely covered my own.
He quickly took me into his arms while near the church
drinking fountain.
I’ll never forget it and I still get butterflies in my stomach.
It was…
Messy.
Tender.
Flailing.
Long lasting.
It was all those things — my first real kiss.
I kissed him again and again later on.
Practice makes what?
PERFECT.
And I wanted to be a great kisser.
I think my diligence paid off since I honestly think
kissing is something I do well.

Believe it or not, a lot of who we are surfaces unconsciously in our avatars.
That is probably why no matter what avatar I create or what skin
I’m in, my mouth must be wide and full.
Juicy lips.
Plump and inviting.
Without them and a gorgeous shade of lipstick (preferably RED),
I  feel my styling is incomplete.

When I opened Avada‘s Rock Your Rack 10L Hunt item,
it was love at first sight.
Thalia is 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8…EIGHT shades of Red and Pink.
OMG!
They are absolutely perfect for lips that practice.
Not too glossy…
(It’s embarrassing to attempt a kiss with color on your teeth)
and
Not too matte…
(Don’t come up in here with dry lips…DENIED!)

Runaway NOT Run Away

LicBootySetStairs

Hidden.

That’s how I’ve spent a good portion of my life.
Running under the radar.
Escaping the watchful eyes.
Invisible.

There are times when I will come out from the darkness,
dust myself off and show the world (real & virtual)
what I can do.
Satisfied, I will go back undercover.
But, what does that accomplish?
Not a damn thing.
So, guess what?
(Perk your ears up.  I’m about to make a bold statement here.)
………………………….
I’M. COMING. AT. YA!

No more hiding.
That means my skills, passions, wild ideas and crazy style —
It’s all for you.
Reminds me of the nanny in the 1976 movie The Omen..
“Look at me, Damien.  It’s all for you!”
‘Course she jumped off a high ledge right after that, hanging herself.
BUT, she did it with a smile.
So, look at me, Readers.  It’s all for you!
That includes LIC‘s latest greatest ensemble titled simply…Booty L.I.C.

LicBootySetHide

Lyndy in Chains is the queen of sexy and Booty is the perfect example!
Compatible with nearly every mesh body out there,
this racy two-piece (top & shorts) is all that and all for you.
Her all inclusive HUD has options to customize the
Material, Belts, Buckles, Buttons, Thread and a Color Wheel to
customize on top of your customizations.
Whew!
There is also the option to turn Bright on or off.

No more hiding ya’ll.
Running away is no longer an option I’m giving myself.
I’m grabbing High FURshion with all my claws —
digging in deep.
This is a runaway…..

If

ZibskaAziza1

A very sad word,
If is.
It’s sometimes filled with regret…
If only I’d been a better daughter.
If only she would smile at me.
If he only knew…
A very sad word, indeed.

I’ve been rather melancholy as of late and If has cropped up
many times during my journeys down memory lane.
I dismiss the negative aspects of them immediately
since there is no use in regretting the past.
Saying that I have learned from them
is all well and good, but I sometimes feel we use that excuse
as an aid to dulling the pain.
The trick is finding your own way of reversing those Ifs, turning them
completely on their sides —
working them.
using them.
getting in touch with them.

ZibskaAziza2

I’ve discovered that one way for me to work my Ifs is
via Second Life Photography.
I’m not a great photographer, but when you are expressing
yourself, you really don’t have to be, do you?

I love texture which is why my images seem to have
more edge to them.
I also love color which I’ve said many times before.
Color & Texture.
There is only one solution…
ZIBSKA!
Zibska gives me so many choices, so I am never ever bored.
For this posting I chose current sales event and
Mainstore items.

Aziza is a powerful makeup collection available now at ULTRA.
Until October 10th, you have the opportunity to transform
your mundane into gorgeous insane with Aziza’s three part system.
Her Eyemakeup palette (15 colors), Lipstick (21 colors)
and Blush (9 colors) all come with Appliers for
Lelutka, LAQ, Catwa and Omega, as well as Tattoo layers.
She satisfies my hunger for color, Aziza does.
Now, for that texture….

Becky.
You probably know or knew someone called that.
But chances are she never showcased such movement as Zibska’s
hat of the same name.
With orbits that give the illusion of hat pieces breaking away,
Becky is not just a hat, but a work of art!
I am one hat-lover in heaven and if you’d like to join me,
the Mainstore is only a click away.

Color and Texture.
I’m ready to go!
Now, If only I could wear two heads to showcase all of this on….

Round 1…FIGHT!

LicSierraHoldMyPurse

The FGC.
I’m a member.
Well, more like a spectator than a full-on participant.
You see, FGC is the acronym for  Fighting Game Community.
I love it!
I crave weekends where I have snacks, beer and a
great tournament to watch on Twitch.
My favorite games I give all my attention to are Tekken 7,
Street Fighter V and King of Fighters IV.
The first two are quite popular and are always included
in gaming championships.

Back in the day, there wasn’t an official FCG.
It was all about the arcade.
Pacman, Tron, Sinistar…
My, my. I miss that excitement of standing up in front of a box
and giving it all you got.
You had your game face on and was ready to take on any and all challengers!
Sort of like how I feel wearing LIC‘s Sierra.

LicSierraPleaseGod

Sierra is a downright sexy fun two piece outfit which consists of a skinny
belted tube top and ruffled mini skirt.
Her HUD gives you pages upon pages of options to change the texture
to Stitched, Lace, Leather, Latex, Fabric, Fur and the Metal of
the Buckles & Rivets.
Stretch options are also available to make your choice pattern
as large or small as you desire as well as LIC’s Color Wheel to further
enhance your customization.
Sierra is compatible with most Mesh Bodies and aren’t we lucky
that she is?  Now, there is no excuse to not get your game on
and look sexy doing it.
Anyone for Round 2……

Rubik Rights

CygnusAugustSquareDance

Defeated.
I guess that’s the only way to describe my position when it comes
to solving what won the 1980 German Game of the Year
for Best Puzzle….Rubik’s Cube.
I gave up years ago twisting and turning
each of those six faces covered by nine stickers
(current models have colored plastic panels for longevity).
However, the Cube lives on with it widely being considered
the world’s best-selling toy.

In the past, primary colored cubes brought back memories of
frustrating hours tearing out (my hair) and tearing in (my eyes).
That was until Cygnus Designs came along and gave me the
right to get my cube on.

CygnusAugustBoxed2Pieces

In keeping with this month’s DAZZLE Event theme celebrating
Piet Mondrian, Cygnus has created the Mondrian Cube Outfit.
100% Original Fitmesh, this multicolored cubed skirt is
compatible with Slink Hourglass/Physique and Belleza Mesh Bodies,
as well as Standard Sizes for classic avatars.
The matching Bra and panties can be worn via Omega Applier
and System clothing.

Victory is mine!
Thanks to Cygnus, I am now wearing the cube instead of the
cube wearing me down…..

Livie Lively

ZibksaLivieLively

I Want To Live!
A 1958 movie my Pops introduced me to as a girl.
It’s a true story based on Barbara Graham, a habitual criminal who
fights to survive after convicted of murder and sentenced to execution.
Me, being at an impressionable age,
I Want To Live had a profound effect on me.
I wanted to live!
I wanted to live for Ms. Graham and for all others out there who sought
to prove that what appears before you, isn’t necessarily what it seems.
With Zibska, you don’t have such confusion.
What you see is what you get…
Bold.
Bountiful.
Beauty.

When I first saw Livie, the vibrant Lipsticks and prismatic Eyeshadows
Zibska offers at our current Mesh Body Addicts,
the corners of my lips turned upward.
My eyes began to broaden.
I took in air.
Livie. Is. Brilliant. 

ZibksaLivieOntheball

She makes my full lips utter meaning without saying a word.
My eyes no longer need to speak since Livie is a polyglot.
And as an ensemble, the face you put forward will be unstoppable!

Barbara Graham’s last words were this…
“Good people are always so sure they’re right.”
Well, I’m not always good, but I’m hella sure about Livie…..

Claws Before Paws

WiccaMinervaDuelist

I love what I’ve become.
Every inch of me.
As of right now,
there isn’t a single thing I would change or
anyone I would allow to change me….
NOT!
Along comes Wicca’s Wardrobe who totally and I mean
totally blows my paws off.
She’s shaken my resolve, so it’s time we have a one on one…

“I adore you Wicca, but come on, Sweetheart!
Why must you make it difficult for this Cabbit?”
(That’s Cat + Rabbit)
“You know how indecisive I am.”
(It takes me hours to finally nail down the colors I’m going
to use in her comprehensive HUDS.)
“I love my Paws.”
(They come in handy, pun not intended, for picking food
from between my teeth)
“I was perfectly happy until…
MINERVA.”

WiccaMinervaCups

“Andrew, tell them to take it easy.  That’s freaking Minerva!”
Anthony Perkins said that in the 1975 movie Mahogany when
his film crew attempted to move the actual statue of the Roman Goddess.
Side note:
Mahogany is one of my favorite movies.
Although, Rotten Tomatoes gave it a mere 29%, it’s 100% fab to me.
It was my first movie about fashion and just like one’s first love,
I will always cherish it.
(Smiles and dusts off the DVD)
Anyway, back to Wicca…

Ms. Merlin has created a Goddess of her own and she doesn’t need a dust rag.
Minerva Claws, now available for you to swipe at The Secret Affair,
may be fitted only for Bento Maitreya Hands,
but that’s the sum of it’s limitations.
Being a 100% Original Mesh Design, there’s nothing else like them on the grid.
I have a habit of zooming in on what I’m wearing and believe me when I say,
I’m awestruck.  It boggles my mind how someone can have such attention
to detail and the creativity to bring such ideas to light.
And then there is the HUD, Ladies.
I cannot express enough…THE HUD!
Let me break it down…
It has 6 Metal options for the entire piece.
However, changing each individual claw and both bracelets is also a choice.
The Knuckle and Bracelet Gems (6 Gem options)
can be transformed individually, as well.
You’re not into wearing the connectors with your current outfit?
Just want your middle finger to be bathed in metallic beauty?
No Problem!
Minerva also comes with Visibility Options so you can take off and
put on what you like.

(Scratches head)
What am I gonna do?
Paws — Claws?
Claws — Paws?
RAWR…..

Minerva Claws are High FURshion Approved!

Solitary Sun

VirtualDivaSoelilSwimsuitIDon'tWannaToFeelNothin'

The Master’s Sun.
The name of the Kdrama (Korean Drama) I just watched
for the third time through.
Needless to say (but I will say it anyway),
it is one of my favorite dramas.
Love.
Crying.
Ghosts.
Tis all in there.
Also, present is a massive amount of loneliness.
No one understands us.
We’re unique in our thoughts.
A constant emotional state.
This is loneliness.

I sometimes wonder about the Sun.
It shines bright yet cannot be looked upon.
It is praised yet cursed at the same time.
A giver of life and a potential entity of death…
This is loneliness.

VirtualDivaSoelilSwimsuitMaster'sSun034

Soleil in the color Crow, is a Maitreya only one piece Bathing suit
by Virtual Diva Couture.
It glimmers and shines nearly as the morning star yet is as pitch as night.
Being the French word for Sun, I wonder if among it’s swimwear peers,
it is misunderstood with it’s unique thoughts and
occasional emotional state.
If so, it’s experiencing loneliness.
But, it doesn’t have to.
Take this taxi right now and make Soleil a part of your wardrobe.
Allow this sun to shine bright and chase away
the dark recesses of your mind….
