I May Not See You for a Little While

I May Not See You for a Little While

I assembled this outfit when Finn Millar and I were talking about my avatar appearing in an advertisement for one of VICE’s new poses. He said he was after a look inspired by Julie Andrews in SOB, Laurie Anderson and RuPaul (I must add that he had imbibed in a few rez-day vodkas so that combination made perfect sense).

This image is a tided-up snapshot of one of the outfits I put together.

Over the next fortnight I have work functions, family birthdays and I’m moving into a friend’s place to housesit her dog and two cats. I won’t be inworld often but I’ll check flickr when I can.

52 weeks of colour, 53 – rainbow!

When too much colour is never enough

Kaelyn Alectro had a wonderful idea to surprise Luna with a final rainbow challenge as a postscript for the 52 weeks of colour challenge.

I think I got all the colours in, well, except for some of the whackier shades like celadon, patriarch, wenge. Roll on next year!

The final 15

The final 15

If I learned nothing else this week, I at least found out about the Mosaic Maker tool from Big Huge Labs. I was sitting here wondering how on earth I’d pick 15 images, open and re-size them until my eyeballs bled and then merge them into one piece while poking myself with sticks. Nah, just do it the easy way instead!

I’ve hugely enjoyed my Saturday routine of posting a picture on Saturday afternoons or Sunday mornings and immersing myself in others’ efforts. However, I doubt I’ll have much time to miss my routine as part deux will be here before I know it.

My heartfelt thanks go to Luna for coming up with the 52 weeks of colour challenge idea and her enthusiasm in keeping the idea together for an entire year. We contributors had the choice of dipping in and out or being early or late with our photos but Luna was always on time every time.

We Aren’t so Different, You and Me

The title explains everything I wanted to communicate in this piece.

This is another of the avatars created by CapCat Ragu and Meilo Minotaur for their inspiring Meta_Body project. My ‘Dragonflight’ picture was selected as part of the collection for the exhibition in Venice and I’m well and truly honoured — the video montage is here.

Crosses to bear

I bought this bodysuit during Modavia fashion week (erm, more than six weeks ago? — good thing there’s no expectation of me being a real-time fashion blogkeeper) for its mix of opaque base and semi-translucent ‘feathers’ down the side. Getting the balance right in being edgy with latex without being trashy is entirely clever to me.
