On Winter’s Edge


Just sitting here kicking my heels, on winter’s edge.

It has actually just turned summer her in Australia, but it’s December so I’m pretending I am back home, waiting for the holidays in a cold and wintry place. With the snow falling at Furillen, it seemed a good spot to test out my Greta boots from fri.day. These can be found at The Arcade in a variety of colours. I chose Brick so I could be sure to see my feet as I kicked through the snow.

Check them out at The Arcade all during the month of December, the month on winter’s edge.

New Kid In Town

1 New Kid In Town sm

I have been a fan of Annie Melson’s for a long time. I dug deep into the depths of my inventory a few weeks ago and found an outfit from *Just BECAUSE* dating back to 2011. That’s about 294 years in Second Life time! So I was especially excited and honoured to have been selected to blog for this well-established and talented designer.

The top I am wearing is the first release I am blogging as an official *JB* blogger. Like a lot of her casual wear, on first glance it is just a simple tank. However, if you look at the details, such as the way it rides up around the hips and the sweet little drawstring on the side you can begin to understand why this brand has enjoyed such enduring success.

I may be the new kid in town, but I’ve been around the block a time or two and I know great quality when I slip it over my head.

Pose Me Pretty: !bang

! !bang Pose Me Pretty

I’m back again this week to showcase another of my favourite posemakers. !bang is another longtime fave of mine and I am honoured to be an official blogger for this store. Luna Jubilee makes such feminine female stands that they are always among my go-to poses. While there are lots of great stand and sit posemakers in Second Life, Luna’s are always so natural that taking a photograph using them is like capturing a snapshot, rather than a posed shot.

The pose I am featuring here is a new release for We < 3 Roleplay this month. Notice the stance, the slightly-cocked knee and the perfect placement of the fingertips. So realistic, as if she has just paused on her trip through the forest.

Luna also makes great couples poses, ranging from friends to lovers. She has some *ahem* racy couples poses available at this month’s round of Romp and a female-female pose available at Cosmopolitan. But just because a pose is designed for specific genders, don’t let that stop you if you want to use them with a different pairing. I had intended to use a photo of the female-female pose with Chance and myself, but sadly, my computer wasn’t co-operating and kept crashing when I clicked the shutter. You’ll have to trust me on this, but with a bit of adjustment, you can often mix things up to suit your situation. You can even try it out in the store before making the purchase since !bang couple poses are in an adjustable box, rather than poseballs (for which you have to have edit rights and a hell of a lot of patience!)

Go on. Visit Luna’s store. You’ll get !bang for your buck and !bang-on poses.
