“Where should I go?” -Alice “That depends on where you want to end up.” Cheshire Cat

Have you ever been so excited by an idea…you forgot to turn your graphics up?  Enter this pic.  I forgot to turn up my graphics, so I had to redraw most of the freakin details.  I didn’t notice until I zoomed in…and honestly…you probably wouldn’t have noticed either, but I knew random eyeballs weren’t rezzed, so I just couldn’t leave it…and I didn’t want to start from scratch, so I’m sorry.  Weeping.  Hold on.  (you can see a bigger version on flickr…just click the picture)

Okay back.  This picture was just shot on black. I added the background stuff (if you know anything about photoshop that statement seemed obvious).   I hate…capitalize…clap with me H.A.T.E  cutting things out and trying to place them on a background.  Why? Don’t give me that evil stare.  I am just not good at it AND it takes forever.  Heck, I don’t even know how to use the burn and make me glow brush correctly.  Hmph.

So on to what matters.  My stuff.  I have a whole bunch of stuff. I am stalling. I don’t want to list it or talk about it anymore.  Me and my stuff are not talking. We are in an argument.

Okay, fine.  Stuff.  My hair is from the event Numberology.  I am going to start there.   It is darn cute, and by Mina. I t has a barret too, but I opted out of that arrangement (the colors in the hud didn’t match my dress).   I liked the poof at the back.  The dress is from Dolle at the the Funny Puppet fair.  I wore it without the jacket.  It was an odd pose and the jacket was arguing with the pose…it was horrible, so I just went without it.  There was also something missing from the the edges of the jacket. It was nice…just something was off.  The rest of the stuff, well it is from The Arcade.  I’m not going to introduce you all. You will have to meet them for yourself. I would like to say that KatatOnik’s necklace inspired this photo. It was the one RARE I wanted out of the whole bunch…and I got it…on the first try, so I bought a couple more just to say thanks for creating something I loved.  Thank you Arcade for another wonderful fun time.  Til we meet again.

XOXO Sophee

The Arcade: Revisiting Childhood

Me, as I unpack my Arcade stuff…I just snapped a quick picture using DOF with my wand and footie pajamas.  Um, if I had all the money in the world, I would still be at The Arcade trying to collect every single wand and jammie out there:

The Arcade

So, as I started to unpack, I realized I had tons of stuff. I just cleaned out my inventory a couple weeks ago, and this gacha thing made a serious mess. But, I had so much fun in the process that I didn’t care.  I don’t think I got one thing that I set out to get, but it didn’t matter, and I ended up loving the items I did get.   In a few months time I won’t remember any of that, but I will remember how The Arcade made me feel like a kid again.

Thirst

Pose by Fluke Cover 8

I have been meaning to do a black and white picture forever.  The Aura Grimm corset gave me cause to do one!   I tried and tried to make this work as an outfit and not just lingerie, but I just couldn’t find anything I liked to pair with it, so I just gave up and wore it as lingerie.   The Grimm Corset is available at the Fairy Tales 2012 event.

Yesterday afternoon, I also bought this wonderful hair from DeLa.  I had seen them mentioned on Plurk a few times and on a few other blogs, but just now got to demoing their hair.  One of their most recent releases, Shell, really just made me ooo and ahhh.   It is so pretty!   I can’t wait to see more and more hair from DeLa.

I should be planning my outift for 52 weeks.  I did go out shopping for 52 weeks, but in my quest stumbled upon a discount event:  Stuff in Stock.  I don’t know how I missed it on Plurk and Flickr and through the numerous notices and feeds–oh wait, maybe I am just receiving too much information, and missing some good stuff in the process, but anyways, it has been going on for months.  I do think I paid more attention to all my normal outlets because the items offered this round are striking pieces (at least that is what I am telling myself–I have no idea what they offered in the past).  This round the theme is vintage (another reason I tuned in–I love vintage stuff). It seems that most items are 90L and below–in the as close to perfect without being a freebie zone.   Tell all your friends that aren’t rolling in the dough that this event have some really awesome items (mesh included) and it won’t break the bank.    Now that it is on my radar, I will be going back again!
