Women Walking Alone

“The woman who follows the crowd will usually go no further than the crowd. The woman who walks alone is likely to find herself in places where no one has ever been before.” — Albert Einstein

My Logic is Cold in Idaho

coldlogic at the University of Idaho 1

Most newcomers probably don’t know about the grand days when a lot of colleges were experimenting with Second Life as a teaching tool for various subjects (mostly computer oriented), and even as the first steps in a virtual form of distributed education.  After all, if you could get the classroom out to the students instead of the students coming to the classroom, so to speak, the options for teaching your subject could grow exponentially.1

Most of the colleges have left, sadly, except for perhaps an occasional computer-science class taught by a rebel, unreconstructed professor or two.  A few remain, though, such as the University of Western Australia, and, here in the United States, the University of Idaho.  Idaho’s campus actually covers five regions, and was designed with some care for looks in many areas.  Where I am here is near the center point of the complex, and I’m wearing a goodie that just came out from neve, the new label offered by coldlogic.  It’s perhaps not the perfect top to wear as the days go cold — which they’re doing with a vengeance here in RL Alabama right now —

Tingling with antici…pation? Turn the page.

Hauling Out the Old — What a Morning!

What a morning 1

Yeesh1, what a morning this was!!!  It felt like it took me a century to find somewhere to pose; and, frankly, I found this location by fumbling my way to it.  The nice thing is that I haven’t been to the Cheeky Tiramisu Café since New Year’s a few years ago, so I haven’t done it very much.  But, once I pronounced it satisfactory for a second visit, I decided to flop down for a rest before getting to work.

Y is for — Yellow

Y is for Yellow 1

“Okay, what the heck begins with Y in my Inventory?”

(Sounds of clawing through the barely organized pile of sh– uh, crap)

“Pile of Yuck…?  No.”  (Tossing over shoulder with a splat)  “An inflatable Boris Yeltsin…?”  (Smacking her face)  “Why the hell did I buy that thing??”  (POP!)  “A yellow sign?  Hmmm….”  (She turns pensive and stares strangely, wildly, off into the distance at a place no human was meant to see.)  “Is it fated for me to be Queen in lost Carcosa beside the dead lake of Hali, the consort of the dread King in Yellow?–  Wait a minute….  THAT’S IT!!!”

Y is for Yellow 2

I’m pretty sure I’ve worn this before, but it fits the theme:  Baiastice’s Kasia top of studded straps, with the matching shorts below.  This outfit would be even more spectacular if it was in latex or vinyl, to go with the BAX boots I’m wearing on my feet and legs!  (The listing calls the boots patent leather; but we all know better, don’t we…?)

L is for — Lazuri

L is for Lazuri 1

Lazuri is definitely one of the name jewelry houses these days, and Zuri Lyric gets better and better with the large stage pieces she specializes in.  This set, which Zuri calls Precise Frimon, consists of a script-driven suite:  heavy necklace, earrings, rings and bracelets for both hands and a set of individual hair pins (which are shaped similar to the pendants on the earrings; they don’t show up in this shot).  Colors are controllable via the menus, and give you a wide range of possibilities to decorate yourself with.

L is for Lazuri 2

These jewels deserved more than a simple one-shot, so I dressed myself up some and trotted out another character from my stories:  I call her Dannta ‘niShantaro, and she’s from the planet Elenia.  Any road, I added to the Lazuri suite a set of prim nails that have some flower or flower-related elements, and dressed myself in a party outfit:

Bliss Couture Zaks

It’s good to get back into modeling harness here.  It’s been so RL busy lately that I haven’t taken the time to just sit down and do the work needed for a good fashion shoot.  But I squeezed out a block of time from supervising my daughter from afar, and working on recreating a story that was lost in one of my several computer crashes,and forcing myself to ignore Pinterest for a while, and got this photographed.  It helped that the dress seized my attention!

The only thing new on me here is the dress, which is brand spanking fresh from Amutey Decuir and Bliss Couture.  It’s called Zaks, and I fell in love with the print pattern on it when I saw the publicity photos on Flickr.  It’s so soft and feminine and reminds me of water plants, so I went to the Water Temple at Cerridwen’s Cauldron to photograph this.

The one thing I don’t absolutely like about this dress is the shape of the skirt itself.  It definitely attracts attention, but it seems a little weird to be walking around in, even as an evening gown (which is what I believe Amutey intends this dress to be).  I was wearing this, however, when I got in touch with one of the estate managers at my house to fix a few problems, and the first words out of her were that she loved this dress.  This, then, like all of fashion, is a case of Your Mileage May Vary.  (It also varies for me in the sense that I don’t see this as an evening gown, but perhaps one for a daytime party or a resort.  Again, this is how I’m interpreting it with my personal sense of style.)

The details:

  • Dress:  Bliss Couture Zaks (turquoise)
  • Boots:  BAX Coen Prestige Boots (gold)
  • Jewelry:  Dahlinks My Lady Emerald Wedding Ring Set (platinum); Elate! Square Stone Ring (onyx/silver); EarthStones Dangle Stud Earrings, and Tennis Bracelet and Necklace, all in champagne diamonds/gold
  • Hair:  Analog Dog Harper (onyx) (A different Harper, incidentally, not me [grin].)
