LOTD #195 – Purple Love

Purple was his favorite color.

Lilac, violet, mauve, eggplant, periwinkle, plum, amethyst, mulberry, or orchid.

He loved them all.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

It’s been a busy week for me, so I’m behind on my LOTD posts.

So, of course, when I sat down to work on them, my computer goes bananas and I have to spend over an hour troubleshooting and restarting to get rid of the (still) unidentified gremlins in the system. :-P

I did manage to make it to the Vintage and Cool Fair and I picked up this gorgeous corset dress from Mon Cheri while I was there.

I love pastels, and this soft lilac was one of my favorite colors in the line.

I don’t remember where I picked up this hair from Elikatira, but I love the long straight lines of it.

I’ve been wearing my IKON eyes forever and when I saw these new ‘electric’ blue eyes, I had to have them.

I still haven’t taken off my Lelutka head – I’ve forgotten what I look like underneath!

You can’t see them in this photo, but I’m wearing some super-cute vintage sling-back heels from KC – I’m hoping to feature them in a blog post over on I <3 Shoes SL (my new shoe blog – if you’re a shoe lover, follow me over there!).

I hope you all are enjoying your weekend – there are lots of fairs and sales this weekend, so make sure you get all your shopping in!

Can you believe it’s almost September??!!

Busy Weekend

Things are busy in both worlds this weekend!

Yesterday I took a class on using social media and my brain is on overload trying to absorb all the information.

I’m trying to sort out what applies to me, what doesn’t, make a plan, and figure out how to get from A to B to C. :-D

Now that I’m writing on 3 different blogs (yes, I am crazy, I know!), time management is going to be a huge issue for me.

Add into that all the RL activities that keep me busy, and I have a recipe for disaster.

For now, I have some decisions to make, and then I will know where my focus needs to be.

Besides all the things going on in RL, there are a ton of things going on in SL this weekend.

Today at 3pm The Waterfront Theater (Bubs & Didds) have a show – the shows are always fun, so if you haven’t been, mark this one on your calendar.

Also at 3pm, Lady Garden Cabaret has their monthly show (it isn’t strange how shows always seem to end up at the same time?!).

Then there are the regular weekend shows – Elysium at 6pm, Guerilla Burlesque at 7pm and midnight tonight (last shows of this season), Elysium’s monthly matinee at 1pm and Moulin Rouge at 7pm on Saturday, and Winds of the Sahara at 5pm on Sunday.

Whew!

That should keep all you dance lovers busy whilst I attend to RL matters. :-P

Happy Dancing!!!

LOTD #194 – All Attitude

LOTD 194

Her piercing blue eyes didn’t miss anything.

She stopped in front of the car and assumed a pose that was all attitude.

He couldn’t help but laugh.

Hair: Vanity – Moonriver – Reds (@Vintage & Cool Fair)  ( 5263)

Skin: Glam Affair – India

Head: Lelutka – Lotte

Eyes:  IKON – Utopia Eyes – Pale Cerulean

Shape: Laqroki – Glow (modded)

Body/Hands/Feet: Maitreya – Lara

Watch: Ben’s Beauty – Dokata Watch – Gold (78725)

Shoes: Essenz – Boca Raton – Tan (@Festival of Sin)  (2186)

Pose: Nantra

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I’ve been a busy girl lately.

I’m working hard on new projects, but I did finally find the time to make it to a couple of events.

I’d never been to the Festival of Sin before, so I enjoyed walking around and seeing everything.

My favorite shoe store, Essenz, had a gacha for their gorgeous Boca Raton heels, so I couldn’t resist.

I’m a sucker for shoes, what can I say? :-P

I also managed to get into the Vintage and Cool fair (not an easy task, mind you).

I love vintage and retro styles, and I will be going back several more times before the fair closes, I am sure.

On my first trip, I picked up this cute little summer dress from G Field.

I love the white ruffled bib and the bow.

G Field also has a free gift out of some cute polka dot slingback heels, so make sure you don’t miss those!

Vanity hair is a new-to-me store, but when I saw this retro beehive hairdo, I knew I had to have it.

Vanity also had a $1L gift – a cute little tiara that works perfectly with the Moonriver hair, so I grabbed that too.

A quick search to find a suitable retro sim and voilá – instant sass. :-D

LOTD #193 – Wave Queen

LOTD 193

She raised a hand, her brow darkening with anger.

Suddenly light began to shine down behind her, almost blinding them.

“You dare to question me?” she asked ominously.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Details:

Hair: Truth – Ami  (2842)

Skin: Glam Affair – India

Head: Lelutka – Lotte

Eyes:  IKON – Utopia Eyes – Pale Cerulean

Eyeshadow: Slack Girl – Calypso

Shape: Laqroki – Glow (modded)

Body/Hands/Feet: Maitreya – Lara

Outfit: Les Encantades – Witch of the Seas (@Enchantment)  (33632)

Pose: Chisa Creations

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The Enchantment event is open until September 4th.

The current round is based on “The Little Mermaid.”

This outfit is the first thing I bought at the event.

I love it when everything comes in a bundle, instead of having to buy multiple pieces or play a gacha to get the whole outfit.

It appeals to the inner miser in me. :-D

Besides coming all in one package, this outfit is simply stunning.

The fin attachments move gently as you do, and the detail on the corset is spectacular.

I love the swirls of color in the scales and fins – that lovely iridescent look is one of my favorites.

The headpiece is the perfect finishing touch to the entire look.

There’s still plenty of time left to head on over and pick this little gem up for yourself.

While you’re there, don’t forget to try your hand at the Enchantment hunt.

Good luck!

Paramount Theater – Anything Goes

It’s been quite a while since I went to some dance shows, and I had some free time this last weekend.

I went to Fusion Dance Crew’s Cinematastic show Saturday afternoon, and Saturday evening I went to the Paramount show.

Paramount 1I didn’t get to stay until the end, but I wanted to share some pics with you of what I did see. :-D

The opening act was to a favorite song of mine – Eye of the Tiger.

The dancers were in their training gear and practicing moves on the stairs a lá Rocky.

I loved the costumes and the choreography was very well done.

Next up was an interesting set to Here She Comes by Bonnie Tyler.

Lots of neat special effects and a costume change.

If you’ve never been to Paramount, they have a very well-oiled machine when it comes to shows.

Paramount 2While some dancers will be de-rezzing or rezzing sets onstage, they will have a smaller set/dance going on in front of the curtain.

This makes for a lot less ‘down-time’ between large acts.

For this show, I focused on taking pictures of the larger numbers.

There were a lot of good acts, so rather than talking about each one and boring you to death, I’m just going to post the pics! :-P

I know the dancers are already busy working on their next show, so you have plenty of chances to take in a show.

For those of you who like a little more ‘adult’ entertainment, Paramount also puts on a special “Night Players” show each month with routines and costumes that are more avant garde than the regular Saturday shows.

Paramount 4

California Gurls

Paramount 6

Message in a Bottle

Paramount 7

Skyfall

Paramount 8

LOTD #192 – Work, Work, Work

LOTD 192

She tried to occupy her mind as she posed.

She’d been standing in these awkward positions for hours now and her feet were killing her.

What she wouldn’t give to be able to fling off her shoes and dig her toes into the nearby sand.

Hair: Wasabi Pills – Jasmine – Fudge  (1624)

Skin: Glam Affair – India

Head: Lelutka – Lotte

Shoes: Essenz – Amsterdam – Brown  (1626)

Earrings/Bracelets: Maxi Gossamer – Honey Diva  (12192)

Location: Cosima

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The last few days have been a blur for me.

I have so many irons in the fire at the moment that I am going crazy.

However, I think I made some progress on projects this weekend, so I should be in good shape this week.

I hope. :-P

I finally made it into the Festival of Sin and the Vintage and Cool Fair, so I’ll have some finds to show you later this week.

If you go to the Vintage fair, don’t forget to keep an eye out for gifts!

I haven’t had a chance to open everything yet, but there are some nice ones. :-D

For now, I’ll settle for sharing another pair of shoes from Essenz (one of my absolute favorite shoe stores).

I love these sexy peep toe heels and this new dress I picked up at Entice (on sale!) matched perfectly.

Some fabulous hair from Lelutka and some accessories from Maxi Gossamer and I’m all set.

See you around the grid!

Fusion Dance Crew – Cinematastic!

Saturday I attended the latest show from the Fusion Dance Crew, titled “Cinematastic!”

The dancers were asked to create routines to music from their favorite movies.

I love movies and I love dance, so going to this show was a no-brainer for me. :-D

FDC AVPThe show opened with a set from ‘Save the Last Dance’ (one of my favorite dance movies) – I was so engrossed in watching I forgot to snap some pics!

I did remember to get photos for the rest of the acts, however.

The second number was ‘Aliens vs. Predator’ and the set was spectacular.

The costumes were amazing and the choreography was well done.

After AVP, cuteness took over the stage.

FDC Happy FeetI’m a sucker for animal movies, and ‘Happy Feet’ is one of my favorites.

Plus, penguins are adorable!

You can’t tell from the photo, of course, but even the penguins in the background were animated.

Such a cute routine. :-D

After the penguins was ‘You Can Leave Your Hat On’ – a Tom Jones version I’d never heard before.

FDC Full MontyI did snap several pics, but only got one that’s PG enough to share on the blog.

It was, as advertised, definitely ‘The Full Monty’!

(insert wolf whistle here)

There were quite a few tongues wagging and ladies fanning themselves by the end of this one. :-P

I must confess, I wasn’t looking forward to the next act, simply because it was ’50 Shades of Grey.’

However, despite my reservations, it was, as always with FDC, a well-done routine.

FDC PocahantasUnfortunately, due to rez issues, I didn’t get a good snap of it. :-(

Next up was Ric doing a Pocahontas routine.

I’ve known Ric for a long time, and he is always the consummate performer.

This routine was pure Ric, and purely delightful.

The last routine of the evening was the finale from Footloose – a perfect choice for the end of the show.

FDC FootlooseFootloose is one of my all-time favorite dance movies (isn’t it everyone’s?) and I loved the set and the costumes.

The girls in their pretty dresses, the boys decked out in their finest, and pure dancing fun had by all.

Another well-produced show by the folks at FDC. :-D

I can’t wait to see what they come up with next!
