mon amour a toi toujours - ma chérie
but your tears bring a little London for me
Berlin can never be so cold as you reach
Baby would you dance with me to the night?
into the serious moonlight
brighter than the stars above you shine
and the loving feels alright...

Look. All glowy and cold and bleak. The house, that is. You're supposed to be looking at the building, right. Not the breasts. Also, Columbine never felt, or looked at home, and Sian will do anything for Columbine. Sian herself, in the last few weeks, has made a shift in her style somewhat, moving to something softer and more ornate, if no less futuristic.
Anyway, armed with a few textures of her own and a few packs she found on the Midnight Mania at ThatChick, Sian made her house look like this:
Sort of looks bare now, doesn't it?
Problem here is that all of Sian's furniture (bar the fridge - that's staying) was sort of sci-fi looking, sort of strange. Or, like the sofa you can see in the far left corner, far too many prims.
See, Sian's only got 200 prims to play with (many of which are tied up with the stuff in her rooftop garden). A thirty-primsofa doesn't leave a whole lot of space. And more - you may be surprised to know that Sian and Columbine are not interested in pixel sex (suffice to say their romance Just Isn't Like That, all right?) so Sian didn't want a bed or a sofa full of doing-the-nasty poses. Just the cuddles.
Would you believe how hard it is? An anguished cry for help on Plurk led to a response from Ariadne Korda directing Sian to her store, Vent Du Sud where everything - everything, each chair, sofa, table, picture frame, everything - is L$1.
And it's such. High. Quality. Sian took Columbine on a shopping trip. It's all sitting there, ready for you to try and buy. Pretty much everything has solo and couple poses, and clickable texture changes.
The couch is seven prims. It has a menu of poses, both for couples and on your own, and the chair can be synchronised with it, so you only ever need to cycle through one set of textures. Maybe you've seen the poses before? You're paying one Linden! Who cares? And these things are beautiful.
The cushions don't change texture. Even so, they're elegant in their simplicity.
Another L$1 couch.
Click on the cushions to change texture, the frame to change pose. Same for the bed below:
Sian never thought she could get excited about SL furniture. She was wrong.If Ari wanted to, she could sell her stuff for a hundred times more (Sian bought a far, far inferior bed from a well-known SL shop for L$125, for example) and make a killing. She doesn't. She contributes to the beauty of the community - and SL is better for her and people like her.
Check out Vent Du Sud. Even for such a tiny price, the store's got it all there for you to play with right out there. Bravo, Ari K. Bravo.

I had a lovely pair of shoes to blog about but would they rez?! grrr no! so I decided to kick them off and go shoeless on the beach.
If you want to grab this look for yourself then I suggest you head to the hair fair before it's closure on the 15th July.
I do so love hair & avoided the hair fair like the plague which was a killer for me but my lag issues would have just sent me over the edge even as a bald naked thing...oh but am I glad I went! and I'm glad I waited.
Well there's some really wacky designs but what an opportunity to go wild! I however decided to stick with some of the more conservative styles - this time anyway :) and here is my favourite freebie one from a store that I'm already familiar with but I also managed to acquaint myself with some wonderful new stores that I never knew existed! all for a great cause too.

In creating a male counterpart for no Lindens at all, Sian refused to compromise, making sure that not one single part of the avatar, even the AO, cost anything.
The skin was the hardest thing to find. The best Sian's so far been able to find for Sion is the Ian skin which is currently on the board at Tellaq. She likes the face, but has issues with the oily bodybuilder chest.
The Menstuff Lounge has a good sixty or more gifts, but most of those are pretty basic. One highlight is sf designs' Gothic Explorer set that includes shoes, a (silly) hat and several outfit options, of which Sion is only wearing part.
Shirt, belt, shoes: [sf design] Gothic Explorer (Menstuff Lounge gift, current) L$0
Trousers: [Elixir] Hextile Pants (Squirrel'd Away Hunt Gift, June) L$0
AO: [Oracul] Basically Boy (modded, offered free in May) L$0
Skin, Eyes: [Tellaq] Ian (Midnight Mania gift, current) L$0
Shape: [Eclectic Equations HQ] Sion L$0

ghouls were working in the night and those were all virgins. They got along very well with the unicorn.
The pink hair is the gift from bc322 at the hair faire. It comes with a resizescript and is very cute. The cute dress is one of the gifts at the blue blood lucky boards. The skirt is mod so it is possible to make it a bit smaller.
A:S:S released glitter makeup lately. This goes very well with the complete pinkish outfit.
