8154511826_1cca7f3773As I stated on Flickr,  If your gonna wear something  Fabulous,  then do it Fabulously,  if not,  then dont  bother  to wear  it.

Snapshot_122Just  recently  I have been   kindly sent some  items to blog from LUSH*Limited by Xi Zane,   and  I really  am not that mad on mesh, too much of anything is not brilliant, and never  one to run with the pack, I have avoided it  if at  all possible,  but Xi sent these  and yes  there are the same styles  with other creators bla bla, and yes some are  really nice,  But it was the textures that gave   LUSH  the edge for me, and her color pallette.

So  for once I am not  moaning about mesh, I am liking it, lol, But  seriously  if you are buying mesh,  check out  the textures, cos bad textures  make  for  bad mesh.  at least Xi  got  it right, I love this new  range.

8243055853_d0a65de5fc_zLOL   these are shoes By BSD Design studio and me not in much else  ok cheeky shoes called for a cheeky shot, and BabyChampagne Sass is  starting to  make noises in the shoe world with her pretty neat shoes, yep I am shoe freak in rl  and  sl,  heaven knows why I dont wear the darn things    hahaha, and I love Dogs in sl and Rl  too  xox

Snapshot_174aThis is truly  one of my  all time fave shots, and this  Gown by Vivien emerald of DESIR’  was a  group gift,  she really   does spoil her group members, and I just fell in love  with this, and  yes she is  a personal friend and  yes  one could say I am biased towards my friends, but I really am not, and where credit is due its due, She is a very talented  young designer, and I wish her a wonderful  future with her store, she works  hard and really does some wonderful and inspiring  Creations.

Snapshot_043TRYST my first main build by myself, it was a bit of a daunting task I had always been the Ideas Person, I am not a skilled  builder, I just see the build,  but sick of others taking credit for my work, I decided  this one would be mine in total,  gosh  what a learning  curve.

7181747243_04b8d1f019_bI love this  shot because I got to do the drama Diva, in it,  lol,  That dress from VeroModero just called  for  this type of photo,  and I love Bouquet Babii of Vero Modero,  she is  always so nice to  talk to.

8137797576_84184f31bcA Fave it had to be,  I was so honored, when Zibska  did a  Xia  dress,  I took loadssss of shots,, but this was my fave.  and if you want wild and wonderful   for jewelry , make up, and original  wear, then Zibska  has to  be one of the best places I know in SL.

 

7060890961_e563c6f5eb_bA fave shot, Wearing a Top hat and Bovver  Boots is not generally advised with a couture  gown,  but fortunately for me,  the Designer  Loved it, but  then  again, I love  the Designer,  she is a pretty  amazing lady  who I met  long beforeI entered  the Modelling world, Her gowns are  some of the most wonderful to be found In Second life,  and Nile Karas  herself is one of the nicest  People you could  ever wish  to meet.

6380930199_2e53ba01f0_bone of my all  time fave shots, this was a comp entry for  a comp that  never happened,  there are a lot of those in Second Life, beware, they  get you to buy stuff, then the comp dies a death, unlike  RL  there is no come  back or refund on  money you may have spent.

 

 

 

I hate Blogging

8194896265_27be5811e2_o

Oh godd that sounds  bad, I hate Blogging, but in all honesty,  I do, its  sooo boring, ok I get to style some pretty amazing items, but I  just  hateeee  blogging.

I truly am not a  lets write drivel person, I see  some blogs, that are pretty  Good, the ones I follow are  cool,  but some jeeeeeeeeezzzuz forgive me for my sins, but pleeeeaseeeeeeeeee.

Theyre  that sweet you could throw up after reading. what makes  them even   funnier is the fact that the writers are not in the least sweet, a couple of them are the most vindictive and vilest people   one would  never  wish to meet.

Theyre  the ones  who wouldnt spit on you if you were on fire, but  are all over you if  they think it may just forward their positioning in  a higher circle. aaaaaaaaaah   fogive me    for my observations.

People  say well  you have a blog, yep  this is called a blog and  yet its more of a  Diary for me, ok  I throw odd  blog posts in,   cos its expected,  and yes in a way its a   part of my  journey  through  the  SL  fashion  and Model world.

Talking  of which, what  on earth is going on  in the  model and fashion world, with the advent of mesh I am seeing some atrocities that really shouldnt  leave  the drawing board.

Then add to that a sloppy  wannabe model, who cant  be assed to check if one alpha  has removed another while dressing,  jeez I went to one event the other evening,  and  I am such a  sod, I cam  people  checking  lol,  and the amount of bare asses  and backs showing thro mesh clothes   hahahahaha, was  fabulous,  theyre all standing there in  those silly affected  poses they use, with bare bits  hanging out at one of the  supposedly prestigious events.

Ohh god  forgive my  irreverence.

But seriously if  you stood in that position for more  than  2 mins you would be in hospital  with spinal issues  for weeks  hahahaha. og  now I  have to  get some shots of the poses and  do  an irreverent photo shoot.

I do  wonder someitimes if their viewer is showing a different view than mine,   truly I do.

Well  I am declaring this blog a non blog,  its  a diary,   so now I guess I will have to  do another blog, that is just blog and then a blog to blog that,  omg  this  could go on and on .

Now I am starting to write drivel for the sake of it, so  signing off,

If anyone is mad enough to read this

My  friend, you have to be  as mad as me, have a fabulous  Day,

Much Love

Xia

Rambling again

 

In personal reality, I am kind of quiet and  a bit shy, I  am so  used to working alone,  I have a real   love of dark romance,  kinda  goth stuff,  I think its the dramatic feel of it that appeals.

In SL you can RP literally  anything,  not that I do any RP, but I see such amazing avatars,  put together by so many creative people and I admire them so much.

I often sneek off  to Inspire  space park for  the odd hour,  there are such fabulous  creatures there, Angels, fae, dragons, warriors, and of course  Grafx, who is a  great  guy, plays and mixes the most fabulous music, He really is talented and I am honored  to  know him.

 

I have met some amazing people  there, very  talented,  there are of course  the  not so nice as in all places, but I am sure someone loves them, so thay cant  be all bad.

 

I havent investigated  the  Vampire cults on SL,  because they dont  have a great reputation,  but I do love the dark styling,  and fabulous outfits that are out there from a fashion point of view.

 

From a personal point of view, I guess I always  have liked gothy type fashion, swinging from goth to boho in reality depending on mood and where I was going, I am in SL rather a Chameleon,   funny thing is in RL  I am very much like that too,  I am surprised I still have hair I have tortured  it so much with different  colors  on a weekly or outing basis,  Thankfully in SL its just a click in my invent,  aaaaaaahhhh I so wish RL  would work the same way,  woah that would  be awesome.

Have a fabbbbbbbbbbb dayyyyy

Much love

Inspirations

 

As a lover of music, I often find that  a song or melody will inspire a shot or outfit, I have music throughout the  day,  loving psychill,  classical some  rock,  and  just love  songs with message and meaning, I kinda of  have a love hate relationship with you tube,   I have found so much music I amy  never have heard, but those damnnn adverts drive me  nuts.

This shot was inspired  by   a  super sound  I  was listening  to called  sleeper in metropolis, by Anne  Clark a blend of electronic music and poetry

Wearing

Jeans By Bliss Couture,

Hair  by KMadd

Jacket  Riccielli.

one of my  very first shots as a new model,

Have a great week,

Much Love

TRYST

Finally I  have kind of  finished TRYST,  my virtual  world in a virtual world.

I guess  for anyone  who isnt  involved in this type of activity, its a difficult thing to understand, and  I admot some of my friends think I am barmy,  well, I say  dont  judge anything til you try it.

Also for many sick and ill People    Virtual  worlds give a platform   that allows them  some kind of  ability to do what they used to do in Reality and  may  be unable to do at present.

Its not prim perfect,  but will get there as I  find more building skills, and if any builders visit I am happy to talk constructive critiscism.

These are   just a couple of  shots of TRYST, I hope people  who may  visit, enjoy its intention as a place to be at peace with all life.

Much Love

Xia

TRYST

My first solo build, where I actually  make items  Builder Brewery classes are  wonderful, but sadly mainly  US time so I am  often asleep, but I do go as and when i can catch one, I was hoping ot be finished by now but time and  other things  get   in the way, and I am  so having probs with  my  SL at the moment  ahh such is life  xox

view looking out over  TRYST  I put  a rail in on the top floor so peeps wouldnt fall off 🙂

My  wonderful MERLIN,  who says the nicest things,

He told me He loved me today, aww Bless his little  talons  xox

so I need to upgrade

Ok welllll  when I  log into  the blog it asks would I like to upgrade  to pro, and seeing other blogs, they  are obviously pro. but often its not the fact that theyre  a flashy design website,  its what is in them that is the key.

Upgrading my avatar here with an emote  hud, was  soooo not  good,  I think we have all  seen photos and  avis,  with  that really freaky  insane grin  forced onto their face  by    the said  hud.

I see  a  lot of  photos on Flicr  of  avatars  with  such  like, ok it may be  my personal  dislike, but seriously,  who  grins like a chesire cat every 15 seconds.  and its not even a pretty chesire cat.  yikes.

 

I was laughing  so hard  when I grabbed this shot, because of that look on my face. there are moments in Second Life, such as only half your  head rezzing  or just clothes and no avi,   these are what I call  priceless SL moments, and sometimes  if we are  fast we can catch them in a photo,  theyre a never ending source of amusement to me.

Ok yeahh  small things amuse small minds, I hear you thinking.

Well  my amusement is  fine by me,  the only person I would ever wish to take the  piss out  of  is myself, and it hurts no one.

Now  I need to  go look at this upgrade  lark,

Have a beautiful day,

Much Love
