My mom is in town this week so I really won’t be posting much, if at all. While I’m away be sure and check out a few of my favorite fashion bloggers to get your fix:
I don’t often blog events, but this is one you DO NOT want to miss! SL’s very own musician extraordinaire, Lyndon Heart, is going Petite!
You heard me! He will be performing at 7 PM @ ShrinkyDinks TONIGHT in Petite form. I, for one, cannot WAIT to see this! Not to mention, Lyndon is one of my all-time-favorites. He was my very first live concert in SL back in 2008!
Here’s the info, Petites, Micros, Mini’s, Furries, Tiny’s aww hell, everyone is welcome! Click HERE for your teeny tiny little taxi!
Whether you’re newly interested in Petites, or you’re a teeny tiny veteran, stop by ShrinkyDinks tomorrow for a fun and fashionable time!!
This Sunday, September 30th at 2pm SLT, ShrinkyDink’s will host it’s first fashion show to hoards of small avie fashion fanatics.
Models for the show are putting together their looks using any and all resources available to them to create their own personal stunning Autumn outfit. All the latest fashions from the very best small avatar retailers will be in the show, so you won’t want to miss it!
The show begins promptly at 2pm SLT, but be sure to get there at least an hour before to secure your seat, as seating is limited to only 30 seats! Kick off the start of the Autumn season in style and come on by!
Happy birthday my friend. I hope you know that you are truly appreciated and I hope you have the BESTEST birthday EVER!
Truly A Friend
Someone to lean on when problems appear,
Someone on whom you’d depend,
Someone who’ll lift you when you’re down in the dumps,
That someone is truly a friend.
That’s how I feel about you my dear friend;
You’re so special just as you are.
Just to know that you’re there provides comfort to spare;
A friendship like yours sets the bar.
By Karl and Joanna Fuchs
I meant to post this yesterday, but, to be honest, I was just too darn tired! However, I hope you will find this cute little outfit was worth the wait!
I have caught the Gatcha! fever. Maybe not to the extent of some of my friends and peers, but I’ll admit, I’m amused! I decided to mix up a few pieces from the Arcade Gatcha event that is happening RIGHT NOW with a few Gatcha prizes from one of my favorite shops.
While trying to find a place to take my photo, I stumbled across a brand new fully interactive roleplay sim that opens on Monday! It’s called the Midtown West District and I think it’s going to bring roleplay to a whole new level in SL. So if you are into urban/city roleplay you should definitely check it out!
The Maxi Gossamer Candy Love Hearts necklace has to be one of my favorite pieces from The Arcade. I love that Maxi puts so much thought and effort into each little detail on her jewelry, and this is no exception. The Gatcha Machine has 10 different colors, with the black one being the most rare.
I’m also wearing the super cute mouse ears from AUX. Their machine has 12 variations of normal ears, and 4 variations of the “special” “rare” sparkly ears which I MUST HAVE! *coughs* Ahem… sorry for my loss of composure there.
Last but certainly not least, I’m wearing a few super cute items from the Gatcha Machine at Sway’s shop. The kitty cat tank top and the wooden bangles are two prizes I will treasure! I cannot say enough good things about this place. Everything is so well done, and simply adorable. I should also mention that while Sway Dench is an amazing creator, she is also a SUPERB blogger! You can check out her blog here!
Here is Sway’s contribution to The Arcade event. I am seriously going to go broke trying to get each and every piggy bank!!
The Arcade starts today and goes through October 15th!

I have to admit… I don’t play chess, as this post will readily show I’m sure.
But, this being our Second Life, we can fashionably glide across *as* any piece we want to be!
Today I’m feeling a little bit at odds with myself. I have two main interests in SL and not enough time to devote to both. I also feel like I’m at war at times…and alternating between light and dark. So with a battle cry ringing in my ears, I give you two looks from the petite side of Bare Rose (or all things costumey and RP for so many of us).
On the side of light is the Cleric for male petite av’s from Bare Rose with June’s signature anime feel to it. I never rip these apart to mix and match, because of how all the details already work so perfectly. I think that any roleplayer who wanted to develop an ethereal angel would dig this. The Cleric reminds me of the Bishop piece..and my fellow Harry Potter fans will appreciate the desire to play on a life-sized board. Included are all the bits like the headpiece, or tiara as it’s named in the folder. One flappy wing set and one static set are both included along with boots for a very petite price.
If it’s true that the V2 petites are going to require their own sized fashions, I haven’t seen any proof of this for my male av yet. So far I’ve put him into Dragansvarg and Bare Rose without any trouble. Maybe it’s only different for girls?
Don’t forget that as a petite, we can’t exchange male and female torso pieces (which is usually the main component for the mesh outfit) because your male will end up with lady lumps. Little male me isn’t ready to be a Queen just yet.
Speaking of the girls… I had to get into the Centaur too, and add a horn to it, just so that I could name it my Knighticorn. Ok yes, I’ve always loved horses and unicorns and centaurs, so playing both a bishop and a knight was the perfect fit for my chess themed evening. The legs move when you walk with an included AO and there’s also the full lady outfit with boots and thigh straps if you don’t want to wear the rear end bit. Centaurs weren’t meant to dance the way that I did, so unless you’re ok with six legs showing don’t try that! Talk about a horse of a different color… *winks* Here I’ve added a mesh sword and turned both the petite avatar and the costume on a low shine to get that marble look from head to hooves.
Knight to E5? I so need to watch that Bobby Fischer movie again. Luckily playing both sides, I win either way 🙂
What both Petite Me’s are Wearing
Female RP Costume: Bare Rose Petite Night Centaur (with a horn that I made)
Male RP Costume: Bare Rose Petite Winged Cleric
Female Petite Avatar: The Plastik, in Lullaby tone
Male Petite Avatar: Yabasuka V2 Male
Female Hair: Tameless, Morganna (black and white pack)
Male Hair: Kin Keiko’s Ryou (white)
Poses: Built in Centaur AO, Gunkata’s from the former Niqotine (now closed)
First things first, I wanted to wish Truth Hawks a very happy birthday this morning! If you have been living under a rock and don’t already know, Truth is the creator of some of the best hair in Second Life, Truth Hair. I was fortunate enough to take part in the lovely and talented Kae’s birthday project for Truth which you can see here. It was such a lovely idea and I have no doubt it was much appreciated by the birthday boy!
And what says “Happy Birthday” better than balloons? Am I right? I was on my way to Kae and Truth’s to deliver this lovely balloon bouquet, but I may have gotten a little carried away… up, up and way! I’m not quite sure I’m going to make it back in time, but it’s the thought that counts, right?
The pose, dress and skin are all offerings for September’s round of XY Room!
The mesh Nio dress from Tentacio is light and fun for these last few weeks of summer-like weather.
And how cute is this Fuze skin from Sugar? (Also available at XY Room) I cannot get enough of these dimples! I wish more SL skin makers would make dimples, freckles and beauty marks!! This soft, sweet skin comes with tattoo layers for all 3.
I’m off to tackle some of these hunts so I can bring you all the 411. Have a very happy Monday!
