Angel With An Attitude

I was up late and left to my own devices last night, so this picture was born. I also managed to cam shop at Kustom9 because I wanted the new Foxy hair, then that led me down a shopping rabbit hole because apparently I’d managed to not pick up this hair from Truth? How did I miss that? IDK.

I was feeling a little eDgY so here I am in this Asteroidbox ensemble. The jacket (with tank) is out at Kustom9 now, and the skirt is from forever ago. It was either Sat Sale or a K9 from some point in the past.

I then left myself logged in all night by accident. This is the second time in a long time I’ve done that. I really need to watch myself. but that’s probably teh case if you see me on before 10am slt haha.

Birdies Everywhere

I know it’s been a little bit since I posted last. Last weekend went on a holiday to a friend’s lake house, against better judgment probably, but considering the circumstances we were as careful as we could be and were still kind of isolated all weekend.

I’ve also started a new endeavor in SL with designing some clothing. Right now I’m using mesh templates and branching out slowly with tee shirts and what-not, but my goal is just to learn and get better until I’m doing my own stuff. I’m going to open a marketplace soon, but for now I’m trying to build up an inventory.

I didn’t put it in my credits, but this little bridge behind me on our land is the cutest! It’s from What Next? And absolutely adorable. It’s called “The Kissing Bridge” and has cute poses for you and your honey. anyway, enjoy!

Everything Is

Life is fair – it’s just a matter of perception. This is on the sign in the bus stop backdrop I used for this particular shoot, and it’s been running through my mind since I dropped it out there. That is a really good thing to keep in mind, especially in today’s climate. If it looks fair to you, then you have a good perception of things. Maybe change your perception and see how it might not be fair for someone else. And vice versa . . .

I hope you all are staying safe, healthy and happy out there. The next post I do will be talking about the event of my SLife, my SL wedding this past weekend. It was beautiful, hilarious, magical and crazy all rolled up into one, and that perfectly describes my life with Drake.

I happened upon this dress (and the shop it comes from) From Rae’s Blog, Little Salty and you should go follow her. She did a cute shoot with his and hers shirts and I had to have them, and well I just kept shopping. This dress was out in prints pack still from the Saturday Sale and I had to have it as well as a few other things. I immediately told her that her blog post made me find them too. We love to hear that, so if I ever inspire you to shop, please let me know!

BTW, I used two of my alts in the background there but they were so far away and part of the background, I did not take the time to detail what they are wearing.

Blue Belle

My sleep schedule is completely fubared. It’s now 1:48 am where I am, and I’m not even remotely tired. Of course that is probably because I slept til after 1pm today. It’s been like this for a while, and I’m really going to regret it come next week when we go on a mini vacation. Don’t worry, I know there’s still a virus going around and we’ll take big precautions.

I’ve had this pose set (I bought both vols of poses plus the prop set) that I am like 80% certain came from a past round of Cosmopolitan, and I have been lax at getting anything done with it. After I bought a new head today and figured out bom (read abou that here) I was wanting to do some playing around. Since I was eating some Blue Bell (red velvet cake flavored) ice cream, I decided it was the perfect time to break out this pose set. I was a bit disappointed because the props were all wonky, some attached to the wrong hand and stuff, and it was just bleh to work with. I did, however, find one I could fix up and so this shot was born. And therefore, worth it! hah.

I am up late, this is the second blog post I’ve done tonight, so I’m going to keep this short and sweet. I think I like my new head, I am sad Genus is not being supported much rn, but this head is pretty legit so I’ll deffo keep it and continue to tweak it (and learn more baked on mesh!). Next on my list of things to tackle? ANYPOSE!

15 Years, New Heads, & Life

Today (as it’s past midnight) is my 15th rez day. I’ve been in Second Life for fifteen years and boy, have I seen some things.

I joined in June of 2005, coming here from a different sort of avatar based chat platform (seducity – does anyone remember that? Lawdy Jesus). Felicity and I were total noobs and of course the avatars looked much different then.

at Ice Dragon’s Playpen – MAN I miss Tringo!

I remember when I discovered live music. It was an amazing special time a few years later, and I fell in love with the scene. Back then there were hardly as many people and boy was the scene different. The talent was amazing, and it was lots of original artists who actually made livings off their sl performances. CQ was one of the ones I grew very close with, and I even managed his career in SL for a while. CQ’s recently come back and boy, am I glad. Our friendship has perservered over years, miles, misunderstandings and mistakes, and I am so proud to call this talented dude friend.

Me, Abi, Britta and Kenda, all at a CQ show together.

I was there for flexi prims, back when there was migration from system layers into sculpted and built items for clothing, and eventually when we evolved into mesh. Well, I take it back. I was on a “hiatus” when mesh actually came out. For a while, though, I was a creator of the cutest flexi clothing a linden could buy. Sweet Treats was born.

This was extra special right?

My life changed when was managing CQ during his second return to Second Life (we’re on the third coming right now, for those of you keeping track). He was performing at a place called Rhi’s Poem, on the Mai Tai Sim. The owner, Meegan, and I became fast friends along with her other right hand woman, Jinx. The three of us became inseparable and my love for them infinite. Jinx migrated from SL for a while, and Rhi’s Poem turned into Rhi’s After Dark, and then eventually moved to Idle Rogue and became an intricate part of that place. But for a while? I was helping run that shit. Then, I got pregnant in real life . . .

Back when the venue was brand spanking new!

After my most recent (which is like four years now) return to Second Life, I took up performing myself, and I still after all these years have amazing love for the Live Music community. You won’t find another group that is more uplifting, more caring, more friendly and ready to help and offer love. Is there drama? Of course. Is there bullshit? You know it. But in the end, the good so so outweighs the bad, and I am happy to be a part of it.

I love the friendships I’ve made here in SL. I love the connections, I love the growth I’ve experienced, and most of all, I love how I’ve grown because of it. I love you guys, and I hope you’ll come through the next 15 with me!

Since it was a special day, I treated myself to a new head since who knows what is going on with Genus. So, earlier today, I bought the Lelutka Nova evolution head and started learning Bakes on Mesh – I think I did ok, what do you think?

A close up head shot with my new head! featuring the cute Sady top from Chic Moda.

Country Girl At Heart

Today was a lazy Sunday. It was Father’s Day in the real world, so did some of that festivities including the amazing NY strip steaks I cooked in the sous vide and seared in the cast iron skillet, homemade mac and cheese, and green beans that I threw down. The rest of the day was spent laughing at SL Secrets and landscaping the outside of our area. It’s absolutely perfect now, with little cuddle and photographic nooks, farm animals and structures, and a lazy river with a gorgeous bridge connecting two areas.

I managed to get some shopping done too! Between Belle, Summerfest, and the Saturday Sale, I managed to blow a lot this week. But holy crap I love the stuff I got!

I can’t believe on Wednesday my avatar will turn 15 years old. 15 crazy years in this virtual world, and then a few days after that I’ll be married in the virtual world. What a crazy few weeks it’s been. But I can’t remember when I’ve been so content in all my lives, happy, and worry free. It’s a good feeling. And now, without further ado . . . my credits!

Inside Cori’s House

We just got our new land, and I am finally ready to reveal the way we’ve decorated it! I’m sure we’ll add different tweaks as the days go along, but for now, I think the house itself is in good shape to show off. Also, I just finally got off my ass and downloaded and installed the Black Dragon viewer so I wanted to take some practice shots.

There’s a whole lot of stuff to credit and in later posts I will go through each room and set up something so I can credit it all, but for now? I just wanted to give a reveal and walk through of our house. Ballin’!

Picnic In the Sun

Pose Fair After Dark is winding down, so I promise there’s gonna be less dirtiness on this blog – well, for a while anyway – and more fun ootd and other images. This was taken as I set up for a sweet afternoon picnic near our penis lake. I put a little sunshower down and changed the windlight, and voila! Here is the end result.

I’ll be doing a lot more scenery photos as we get the outside landscaped just so. The inside is almost done too, so maybe some interior photos!

Oh, and as a side note? The SL17B is upon us, and that means SHOP AND HOP!! I went today and cammed around to almost everything, and got my gifts and bought some stuff super cheap. I can’t wait til the performers start. Sadly, I will not be one of them this year as my self esteem just can’t handle it. but I hope to return soon!

Take It From Me

In a world where everyone feels the need for labels, I’ve always felt kind of . . . I don’t know, lost? This is for a number of reasons. BDSM – The main question is are you a dom or sub? For me, it depends on the person. I have a lot of alpha female tendencies where I am extra bossy, but for the right person I fold like a house of cards beneath their touch. The two main categories of people that tend to turn me into the latter? A beautiful, strong, confident woman and a strong, assertive yet nurturing man.

While setting up this picture, I envisioned the former. While Lara is my alt, I just set her up as a beautiful Goddess, climbing over me and force feeding herself, taking it all from me. Complete control, with her behind the wheel.

Cuca does some amazing poses (I’ve been a fan since peeping Kaitlyn’s blog and now I’m getting to try some of my own! I suggest you do too!

Home Sweet Home

I did a thing. While Drake and I both have Linden houseboats and I have my little residence on Idle Rogue (Which is a great community, btw) I wanted more space not only to deco but be able to set up things for better photo shoots. So, here I am. With a half homestead to decorate and set up the way we want it.

There are barns, stables, country animals, trees, and even a weiner-shaped lake because, well, it’s me. I’m having a blast making everything the way I want it, just in time for my special day next Saturday.

I decided it was the perfect time to snap a photo with my vintage look that I picked up from the Vintage Fair. I love old fashioned stuff so this look was a no brainer. Wasabi did a great job on this rockabilly hair! I freaking love it.
