Dust yourself off and try again..

To be fair this is an outfit that I photographed back in April before my move but I think it’s still worth posting.  I have to admit, the memes are alot more fun than I thought they would be.

Red and Gold 1

  1. What’s your SL name? Alura McCann
  2. What made you choose this name? Because I wanted to make a character with my then boyfriend that had the same last name.
  3. What’s your SL nickname, or what do most people call you? (if applicable) Alura or Mena usually.
  4. What’s your SL display name? Why do you choose to have one? (if applicable) Adena, this is my current roleplay character’s name.
  5. Do you like your SL name? Definitely.  I like the names on all my avatars.
  6. If you could change your SL name, what would it be? Hmmm… Wicked Sinister?
  7. What’s the craziest/funniest SL name you’ve ever seen?  To be honest I can’t think of an overly crazy or funny one.
  8. What’s the coolest (your favorite) SL name you’ve ever seen?  Beautifully Sinister

Remember the name…

FaMESHed for the month of May is in full swing and it’s the 1st birthday celebration of the event!  I found this great mesh tunic from a store that is new to me, 22769.  Today’s meme is about why I blog.

Inn Girl 1

  1. How long have you been blogging? June of 2011
  2. Why did you start blogging? I’ve always had a love for shopping in Second Life and putting outfits together for my characters.  There were very few blogs that dealt with roleplay fashion so I wanted to make a contribution.  The amount of blogs has definitely grown since then and I am very excited that more and more roleplayers are blogging – I love to see what they come up with.
  3. How many times a week do you post an entry? I try to average about 3 a week but as you have seen sometimes real life, job, kids etc takeover.
  4. How many different blogs do you read on a regular basis?  Tons, I have no idea how many but I read alot.  My husband laughs at me sometimes because I read so many.
  5. Do you comment on other people’s blogs? I do occasionally but I probably should more.  I know it’s nice to know that people read and appreciate your efforts!
  6. Do you keep track of how many visitors you have? No, I have no idea.
  7. Did you ever regret a post that you wrote? No, I don’t regret anything I post.  I try to keep my blog positive, lighthearted and strictly about fashion and roleplay.
  8. Do you think your readers have a true sense of who you are based on your blog? No, not really.
  9. Do you blog under your real name? No, I blog under my avatar name, Alura McCann.
  10. Are there topics that you would never blog about? Yes, I won’t blog anything that’s entirely negative.
  11. What is the theme/topic of your blog? Roleplay, fashion, Second Life.
  12. Do you have more than one blog? If so, why? This technically isn’t my blog.  It’s the amazing work of Roewan Kline and she let’s me ramble here.  I do have a blog but it’s pretty dusty.
  13. What have you found to be the benefits of blogging? I think it’s helped me to gain confidence in myself and given me a focus and direction.  It’s something that I find immense enjoyment out of.
  14. So, why do you continue to blog? I enjoy it, designers continue to create amazing things and I will continue to blog!

I just love how this tunic covers just enough to not show off too much but is still sexy.  It gives a nice view of my ass.. *grins*.

When you play a game of thrones, you win or you die..

This post was definitely inspired by Elements: What to Wear in Westeros series.  I love this series and how she breaks it down.  I admittedly did try to roleplay Game of Thrones and was quickly lost and overwhelmed.  I love the television series and I have read a few chapters of the first book.  I plan to try the roleplay again at some point when I feel like I won’t be making a huge fool out of myself.  *chuckles*

The Reach 1

The next meme in the series is three wishes for Second Life.  I probably could list more than three but these are the most important to me.

1.  I wish there were less or no out of character drama in roleplay sims.  It’s always unavoidable no matter what genre you are roleplay.  Someone will spoil the fun for others with some sort of drama.  Sometimes the drama can split up a group or close a sim.  Drama is everywhere in life and in Second Life but I wish that it simply did not exist in my roleplay!

2.  I wish that my inventory would automatically sort itself.  These are wishes right?  This would be ah-maz-ing!  I would love to open my inventory and find it sorted in just the way I would like.

3.  I wish that I could create things.  I have tried and failed.  When I first started playing Second Life, I made pajamas.  I tried creating costumes from She-Ra a few times.  I am no good at creating things.  Maybe someday?

The Reach 2

What sort of Game of Thrones character would you play?  I think I would definitely enjoy playing a small folk of some kind.  I like some of the more mystical elements of Game of Thrones.  The scenes with the followers of the Lord of Light are really getting interesting this season!

A dream of life again…

Moving, unpacking, computer and internet issues finally seem to be resolved!  The good news is I was able to keep up with shopping during the entire moving mess.  Now, just to blog my overflowing inventory.

There have been several chalwars released lately.  The first that I am going to blog is one of the two released from BINA.  It’s an elegant yet simple chalwar with its own jewelry and veil included!  It also includes tango appliers for the boob lovers out there.  When I saw this chalwar I was instantly reminded of one of my longtime favorite chalwars from Solange.  I have added a few accents of that chalwar to this look.

“From one side a slave girl, barefoot, bangled, in sashed, diaphanous, trousered, chalwar, gathered at the ankles, in tight, red-silk vest, with bare midriff, fled to him, with the tall, graceful, silvered pot containing the black wine. She was veiled.” Tribesman of Gor P. 88

Red Chalwar 1

The jewelry is amazing that’s included, it comes with bracelets, earrings, a veil with jewel (and a jewel without if you prefer), armbands, earrings, and a belly jewel (not pictured).  If you like chalwars or just want a change in pace from silks I would definitely not miss this release.

Red Chalwar 2

I thought it might be fun to participate in Strawberry Singh‘s memes as I catch up on all the outfits I have to blog.  I am going to work backwards so the first one is the haiku.  Now, don’t laugh, writing a haiku is harder than it seems.

Shopping is my love.
Roleplay is my other love.
Virtual dress-up.

And there you have it!  My haiku about my virtual life, which really does consist of just shopping and roleplay!

Weee… moving…

I have been super busy moving in real life.  We finally got the internet reconnected at our new place today.  Nothing has went smoothly or easily but it’s over!  Now, the fun of unpacking and catching up in all the stuff I’ve missed.  I did get to visit Fantasy Faire before the move and it was amazing.  Can’t wait to put together some looks and show you what I found.  I really loved this look when I put it together a bit back.  The top is from a store called, The Library.  This is a collaboration between Sabina Takakura and Dream Resistance.  If their names sound familiar they should – they were the owners of Fantasia.  I was so sad when they went out of business in world, you can imagine how happy I was to hear they had a new venture.  They have a great concept to go along with it, their outfits are inspired from characters from books.  I’m such a nerd that I LOVED this!  I can’t wait to see what they come up with!  They already have several releases out so make sure to stop by!

GoT Evie’s?

cersei

Still loving the Game of Thrones sim. Hopefully you’re all keeping up with the show because it’s truly addicting!! I was totally tickled pink when Evie’s Closet released this gown for a ridiculously wonderful price. This woman can still make me buy sculpt and flex in a mesh SL world! To me, that’s truly a testament to her skill. She just makes beautiful clothes, and she never fails to make things stunning. From her color choices to the lines of her creations, this lady knows fashion. 🙂 Thanks Evie for making my day with this gown!! This is my tribute to Cersei Lannister, my favorite bad girl at the moment. George knew what he was doing when he created this twisted beauty! Enjoy!

If I hesitate to let you in…

Fantasy Faire is coming up soon and many of the preview items are making my mouth water!  One of the designers that will be there is Elvenbreath, this is an older outfit from their store.  Admittedly, I had not been there before but I am glad that I went.

Green Coin 1

One of my favorite features of this silk is the bangles, they are raised in the back.  I love this because then it does not look so awkward as your wrists bend and move and it looks more natural as you can see below.  If you are looking to get your shopping fix until the Fantasy Faire begins then take time to check out Elvenbreath!

Do you ever have times when you see an outfit and just have to buy it but aren’t really sure how you will wear it?  This happens to me at times and this is what happened when I visited Bare Rose recently.  I saw this outfit called Meke Meke and the detail was just gorgeous but I didn’t know how I would pull it off.  With a little magic and make-up from May’s Soul.. I think I managed!

Island Girl 1

The collar and necklace had shoulder attachments with them but I removed them.  There is also a huge headdress that goes along with the outfit.  These pictures don’t give proper justice to the details of this outfit.
