Only a cat of a different coat…

Game of Thrones wrapped up it’s third season this week and it was undoubtedly my favorite season so far!  I love not knowing which of my favorite characters might die next – though I plan to take time out and read the books this summer.  June is in full swing and you know that means that all the events have restarted and you can find lots of goodies in FaMESHed, We ❤ Roleplay, and Collabor88.  This look is centered around the hair that I found at FaMESHed, I am really in love with it.

GoT 1

Mandala has released more new jewelry and it is gorgeous!  Their summer collection is definitely full of must have pieces for roleplayers.  I haven’t worn a Belleza skin in sometime but I fell in love with the Ava Best Buy 1 for June.  I missed the cleavage tattoo that Belleza includes with their skins.  This an option I’d really love to have with Glam Affair, I am not always wearing Lolas and I like being able to have cleavage now and again!

The dog days are over…

A new edition of the We ❤ Roleplay event will be opening June 4th but I couldn’t resist blogging some more pieces that I put together from the first round.  I am still trying to think of what to do for my Teach Me Something meme, perhaps a Marketplace shopping tutorial?

Carpathian 1

  1. Who did you speak to last inworld today? Reece Morane
  2. Who has taught you most about SL? Sterling Hermes, probably life in general.  Wise man.
  3. Who do you turn to for help? It depends on what I need help with.  My life lines would have to be Sterling Hermes, Missy Lysette, Reece Morane, Serenity Lovenkraft, and Xanadue Moorsider (each for different things).
  4. Who is the most entertaining person on your friend list? Definitely, Missy Lysette.
  5. Do you speak to your SL friends outside of SL? I do, a few I text or chat to on Skype.
  6. Are you part of a community or family inworld? I’m not part of a current group in Second Life however I consider most of my close friends like family.  I have been part of many communities and I take a piece of each of them with me.
  7. Are you usually around a lot of people or do you spend most of your time alone inworld? I spend time with my partner mostly, we visit with a few friends when time permits.

I was super excited when I woke up and seen that Tuli Asturias had released some vampire teeth.  I was just thinking of looking for a good set to go with this outfit, she read my mind.  The new summer collection for Mandala is out and it is jaw-dropping!  I love Mandala’s jewelry and when I saw these pieces I wanted them all instantly.  This fountain behind me is from aisling – I am excited to see what they will have for the next We ❤ Roleplay !

I struggled with the outfit in this post for several hours before I finally got what I wanted.  This outfit serves a purpose for roleplay in a new roleplay that my partner and I are going to start.  I had not planned to take pictures of it but then I went to FATEwear and the balcony just reminded me of what a balcony in King’s Landing might look like.  Now, onto my SL firsts.

  1. First SL Friend: Sterling Hermes.  He is the person who brought me to Second Life and we are still friends to this day.  We met in EverQuest.
  2. First SL Kiss: Probably, Krusk Kuhr.  He was my first SL crush.  lol.
  3. First SLex time/place/partner: I have no idea, if it wasn’t Krusk.
  4. First SL Partner/Girlfriend/Boyfriend/Wife/Husband:  My first SL Husband and partner was Alkaline Milosz.  We bonded over a mutual love for baseball and Dark Age of Camelot.  One day he will admit the Cardinals are a better baseball team than the Rangers… oh wait.. sidetracked!
  5. First SL Job: I got a job as a stripper at a club called… now wait for it… “The Sex Club”.  Very original, no?
  6. First SL Creation: Pajamas.  They are long deleted.  I don’t think there is any photographic evidence either, thank god!
  7. First Encounter with a Linden: I really don’t think I’ve ever had an encounter with a Linden.  If I had it wasn’t memorable. lol
  8. First Encounter with a SLebrity:  Well, I did meet June Dion upon my first joining SL, she actually gave me one of her first ever creations.  I had no way of knowing that she would become the huge designer she is today.  I met quite a few “SLebrities” during my time with Nardcotix.
  9. First SL Sim you fell in love with: The first sim that I loved to hangout in was Rosethorn (I think it was called that).  We basically ended up being a bunch of dorks on the docks most of the time but it was fun.
  10. First SL Blog Post: June of 2011.

So that I don’t get behind I thought I would also share my guilty confessions.

  1. My inventory is a huge mess at the moment.  I don’t know why but I just can’t find myself to be arsed enough to organize it.  I keep putting it on my to do list and I keep ignoring it.  It’s becoming a big monster that might eat me.  But, having said that, my inventory is just over 40k, which I think is decent for being a 7 year+ resident.
  2. I have more alts than any one person should.  When I first started Second Life I came from MMORPGs where you had to make a new character for everything you did.  I kept that same mindset when I first joined SL.  I have at least 7 that I can think of off the top of my head.  Most of them never get touched other than to clear notices or letters off a lucky chair I want.  *hangs my head in shame*
  3. I have things in my inventory that I have never worn and probably don’t even know is there.  Hunts, impulse purchases, things that weren’t exactly what I thought they were.  It’s terrible, shopping is an addiction!
  4. I am slightly obsessed with reading profiles. I read most everyone’s profile I come in contact with.  If I see an avatar I like I will read their profile.  It’s a weird voyeuristic obsession I have.  I am also addicted to inspecting people’s avatar’s to see where they got things from.
  5. I am shy.  It is difficult at times for me to acclimate myself to roleplay sims because I am so shy.  I struggle with fitting in places because I don’t know how to get my foot in the door sometimes.  Other places it seems to come naturally and then I can open up more easily.  More often than not it is a struggle.
  6. I have more hair than any one person should have.  I buy probably 5 hair styles to every one outfit.  My partner knows that I get more excited about hair releases than anything else.  I have a few favorites that make me squeal for joy when they have new hair!  Especially the ones who don’t release as often as they have in the past.  I finally brought myself to delete my ETD folder.  I had to tell myself that I would truly never wear them again because they are that out of date.

It’s Good to be Back!

Hello, fans of Silks of Second Life!  Some of you may know me from The Roleplayer’s Closet/Mena’s Musings, if you don’t I am Alura McCann!  I have been in Second Life since 2005, Alura came around in 2006.  She is the avatar I have played the most.  Second Life fashion has been something that has always caught my attention.  I like to say I am a fashion enthusiast, my husband says I’m just a shopping addict.

I was very excited when I saw that Roewan had decided to open up her blog to collaborate with other bloggers.  I have followed SoSL for a long time and have always enjoyed Roewan’s posts!  She’s amazing and has definitely inspired me to spend more than a few lindens.  Blogging is not always easy but she’s kept this blog open for several years now and continued to feature content for roleplayers and fantasy enthusiasts.  Roewan, I can’t thank you enough for allowing me to be a part of the SoSL team.  I am truly honored.  I look forward to sharing my take on roleplay fashions and my adventures with all the loyal Silks of Second Life Readers!

The first ensemble I want to share with you is a bond outfit.  This dress by the Muses could definitely be made into a Free Woman outfit but I saw it and couldn’t help but think bond.  It shows off just enough to make you curious.  Enjoy.
