About Me: Firsts!

16 Sep

I decided to take part in one of these “tagged” memes on flickr. You answer some questions about yourself and then tag the people you want to answer them after you. Cerrie Janus tagged me a few months ago, and I’m finally reciprocating :). Don’t worry, I didn’t tag you. 😉

There I am: little miss Themapants! It’s not often I share so much of my real life on this blog. That’s pretty refreshing, to be honest 🙂

Should I Buy It?: Redgrave Trinity

3 Jul

I love skins, and I’ve been testing out a few creators I haven’t purchased in a while. One of the new skins on the market is Trinity by the everlasting store Redgrave.

I need some input! Should I buy the skin pack? Is it “Thema”? I am opening up my comments to any and all suggestions on shape editing and if you think I can pull off a more mature, dramatic look. Click the pictures to see what folks are saying on flickr.

Vampire Daylight – Trinity: Shape Testing

Shape One: My normal everyday Thema shape made by yours truly.
Note the wider face shape, puckered lips (not a duckface!), and smaller breasts.
Redgrave Trinity shape 1

Shape Two: A new test shape
Note the larger breasts, wider lips, and longer face.
Redgrave Trinity shape 2
I think shape two needs a bit of refining, but I didn’t want to keep my normal shape for this skin. What do you think I should do with it? Should I buy it? Should I keep my old shape? Let me know in the comments.

Just for kicks, here’s an ass shot 😉

You (and maybe I) can purchase this skin over at Redgrave.

Fashion Blogger Poll!

25 Feb

I know each of us has a different schedule, pattern, and preference for how often we blog and what content we publish. What keeps you posting new looks? Is it the new releases? A creator sending you a review copy? Random closet shuffling whenever you feel inspired? What do you blog?

Row, Row, Row Your Boat

Where do you go to relax, meditate, daydream, and escape in SL? What types of locations calm you down and give you a sense of peace in this virtual game?

I’m a water girl; give me a babbling brook, thunderstorms with torrential rain, or the lapping of waves on a lake and I feel my entire body begin to melt into its own serene puddle. My weather system is one of the best purchases I’ve ever made. I can turn up the volume on my speakers, close my eyes, and hear the wet patter of rain as long as I want.

A stunning example of a sim for rain lovers like myself is the new dark and detailed CREAMSHOP mainstore. I could spend hours floating in the waist-deep water with the ducks as the rain floods down, splattering and flowing off of street lamps and overhangs. Check it out as soon as possible!

So what about you? What’s your element? What environment gives you a sense of calm? Is it a tropical island? Forest? Urban street? A club or social scene? Anything goes.

Black is Back

20 Oct

Black is Back
These are all of the black heels I own as of October 20 (of course we all know that is subject to change at a moment’s notice!). As I glance around this population of pumps, only three or four truly strike me as favored among the solemn bunch. I have my regulars, my favorites, my rejects, and regrets.

Can an avatar ever have too many black heels?

It’s amazing, really: Just yesterday I was lamenting over what to wear, knocking inventory folders down to-and-fro trying to find the perfect heels to go with my new-found love of Sheer stockings. I realized that I’d probably never find the perfect heel, so I just defaulted to some random stiletto.

What’s your favorite black heel that you own? Who made it and what is it called? You may see it in my picture above, but if you don’t, I especially yearn to know!


Skins: Help me pick!

31 May

Which one of these gorgeous skins would you buy first? I just don’t see a way to justify buying all of them right now, but as time goes on they might all find their ways into my inventory. Could you help me pick my next one?

Below I’m showing 4 skins, each using my own shape without any modifications… oh, and eyelashes by Cake, hair by Hiccup, and bikini by Refuge (in case you’re curious). I didn’t post-process at all, save cropping and consolidating.


1) Blowpop Tuesday Honey Shir, Seductive: I really enjoy the shading and details of Blowpop skins. I’m not sold on the lips (color and shape), but I could at least tweak the shape bit. I usually avoid bright lips. Not sure why!

2) Dutch Touch – Amy Sunkissed Cherry Dark: I already own one Dutch Touch skin (a freebie from way back, actually) and I keep getting compliments on it. So I’ve been considering taking the plunge and buying a whole pack. What do you think?

3) Detour – Meghan 1: My favorite freckled skins are the ones from Detour. This one, Meghan, just charms the heck out of me. I love the mouth, the shading, and the youthful look. Think I could pull it off?

4) Detour – Josie 1: This second skin from Detour has a sweet face, nice glossy highlights, and an interesting lip shape. I’m not sold on that mouth, but it doesn’t make me love the skin any less. What say you?

Some things to keep in mind: I almost always have black hair, gray/blue eyes, and full lashes. I gravitate towards dramatic eyes and subtle lips. I don’t like modifying my shape, but will do it if I adore the skin enough.

So, care to help me decide?
