and I forget just why I taste
oh yeah, I guess it makes me smile
I found it hard, it’s hard to find
oh well, whatever, never mind

Been in a grunge mood lately. Naturally I had to go to Vinyl, right? Kind of a short entry today as I’m feeling pretty bushed from work, but I’ve been listening to my 90s music playlist all afternoon and this just had to be a thing.

I’m fairly old in terms of the internet community these days, especially in the gaming crowd. Most of the people that play in my Dota 2 league are in their early 20s or even younger. They don’t really know anything about the bands I grew up listening to, or why grunge was such a thing for the whole “disaffected youth” demographic. Music has never been an “answer” for me the way it has been for other people, but there are songs I just remember over and over, and listen to over and over, and they feel timeless to me, like I’m a teenager again.

Not that I would ever want that, mind.

Genre’s new round is Medieval!

Fun round with some very cool items from the designers, but I picked my favorite to showcase here. :> I love this new skin from Lumae; I believe this is her first of her new face line, and the ad is very reminiscent of Elizabeth I. I thought originally of doing an Elizabeth-style picture, but I found this awesome cemetary at Order of Avalon and basically ended up doing something completely different.

I’m also wearing a few pieces from Vae’s new jewelry set, the Victorienne, over at The Secret Affair. As usual it’s beautifully detailed and comes in seven different metal types, with a HUD to change the opal/pearl-like gemstones featured on each piece.

Get thee to Genre, go!

Alright, yes, it’s a LITTLE cliched, but I love playing around as a redhead. With Plastik’s new Luck Jewelry gacha set for Luck of the Irish, I decided to just be as cliche as possible.

I’m wearing the rare Tyvah set in this picture, but the gacha has tons of stuff in it–two separate sets of jewelry (the Erva and Rylah sets) with earrings and matching necklace, with lovely shades of green and gold. The rares come in silver and black. The Tyvah set includes a HUD with 30 different gemstone colors and 6 different metal colors, and the detail on it made it by far my favorite of the lot.

I’m also wearing a new set of Buzzeri eyes, which are available at N21, and made by the fantastic and adorable Eleri Catlyn, who’s just returned to SL. I tacked on this gorgeous style from Elikatira, which is having a 75L sale on everything in the store while Elika moves cross-country.

If you’d like to try your hand at the Plastik machine, head on over to Depraved Nation’s Luck of the Irish event, which runs til the 17th! I’ve included taxis to N21 and Elikatira as well if you’d like to get in on the good stuff. ♥

Aw yis. Plastik did some beautiful Drow skins for this year’s Skin Fair that come with every applier you could ever want. :3 Vae has continued to provide applier support for all sorts of mesh bits that aren’t really used at large anymore, like the Ghetto Booty, Phat Azz, Lola Tangos, and other assorted pieces, so if you use any of them still Plastik might be your skinmaker of choice.

I actually took this picture without my mesh head, for once, even though the skin comes with Lelutka appliers. I liked the way it looked on my face, which has been true of a lot of Plastik’s skins in the past–they always looked great on my shape and gave my av the haughty look I aim for. What I liked a lot about the skins was the texture on the body, which reminded me of stars in a dark sky; it is beautifully detailed and well worth looking at up close.

Head over to Skin Fair and pick up a tone of these skins, btw! There are 20 tones and they are available for both men and women, which means that all you Drow guys out there have a really lovely set of options. ♥

omg HUGE NEWS FOR ME: I got accepted as an official blogger for Plastik!

I am a huge geek for Plastik and have been ever since I started out in SL. Vae does wonderful textures and models, gorgeous makeup, awesome skins, etc. There’s always been something fae about her store, and when I picked up some of her new releases I immediately knew what I wanted to do with them.

I’m a big fan of Jim Butcher’s Dresden Files, and Mab, the Queen of Air and Darkness and monarch of the Unseelie–Winter–Court of the Fae is a fairly important character in the books. I recently finished re-reading the newest entry in the series, Skin Game, and Mab once again features in it. So this interpretation of Mab is influenced by Jim Butcher, and uses pieces from Vae’s beautiful Petrichor Druid gacha set at Whimsical. I’ve also picked up the new Lo hair from Little Bones at Uber and the Kat applier from Glam Affair at We ♥ RP to round it out.

You may also notice I’ve been working on my editing techniques! I really wanted to do something special for my first blog post for Plastik, so I decided to challenge myself and see if I couldn’t do something really lovely, and I’m pleased with how it turned out. Thanks to Daeberethwen Arbenlow for all her advice on Plurk ♥
