The switch your gender for 0 Linden challenge is really challenging. And Im happy that Fauna and me aren't the only ones who made a 0 Linden avatar of the other gender. Paco and Manuel from 22769 put a picture of their girl avatars in the flickrgroup. Corvus Szpiegel the owner of [Hate This] did the same. and Flash Unplugged, one of the bloggers at MD Style Watch created even several outfits for his alterego Flashette. Silverr Andel, owner of Sterling Artistry and blogger for SLdiscovery turned the girl next door into a princess. Maitresse Couturier created a boxer for 0 Linden and blogged him. Khan Omizu put a girl with a hat on flickr. And Aili Panthar created a free male na'vi.
As my first attempt to create a male avatar failed at the eyes I used by mistake I decided to try it again. This time I wanted to put a softer looking guys avatar together and I wanted him to have shoes too. So I spent some time at mother goose to win a male skin on the lucky board. After that I decided to make a male shape myself. Luckily Paco and Manuel were willing to help me with the face because that was really tricky for me. I used the male woodelfshape from the library as start but I hope that the shape does not look very much like the woodelfshape anymore. The shape will be a gift in the Eclectic Equations group with full perms. Just join the group it will be in the notices. After that I got some of the free hair from exile and eyes from the Sterling Artistry camping chair. Exile has three free hairstyles for guys and some for women as well. They all look great and are mod. Sterling Artistry also has normaly two pairs of eyes as groupgift. After the base of the avatar was done it was time to get some clothes. Most tricky was to get shoes. Luckily I remembered that Ordinary gives out some sneakers as profilepick gift. The trousers from 7style are sold on the marketplace for 0 Linden.

The fisting shirt is a permanent freebie from a:s:s. It makes me laugh so I like it and the shading is great as well. To add some detail I got a wristlet from the ruru@pino camping chair. Kumaki glasses style have headphones on the luckyboard and cherries for the mouth. Actchio still have their gift from the goodshithunt in the store it contains a unisex tattoo. In my opinion the look is fine.

I decided to look around for some more free stuff for guys. Poison has two jeans as groupgift. 22769 has also a groupgift every month. This month its a Life guard outfit with even a pipe. A:S:S just put out new gifts for residents which are younger than 30days. The suit is also a groupgift it comes from G&T Creations . The trousers worn with the fisting t-shirt are a groupgift from sey as the ones next to them. The Sexsi one is also from a:s:s. The hair with the hoodie comes from colors. It was a bit surprising how tricky it was to get jeans but normaly some of them are always a huntgift somewhere. As I tried not to use huntgifts and freebie stores it was a bit difficult.

[squeaky red]

As someone who actually has a 'latex'-folder with many subcategories in their inventory, I couldn't help but to snatch up this purdy huntgift of squeaky red goodness that is +DV8+'s contribution to the Dark Future hunt. You receive both outfits shown in the picture in one single hunt item, so there is no extra search to find a hot club-outfit for your boy- or girl-alt in addition.

[squeaky red]

The male item, Reznik (in firebrick) consists of shirt and pants, whereas the female prize, Merciless (in blood), features a futuristic looking bodice with shoulderpads, stockings and gloves. I'm always amazed how well +DV8+ manages to pull the latex look off, so this outfit will surely become one of my favourites in my Saturday-night-party wardrobe.

On Storm:
Skin: .:Hermony:. - Kriz ST1 - Shaved (currently there is a 50%-off sale in store!)
Hair: +BM+ - Mohawk_H043_Black (free)
Eyes: negaposi - Lunar EYES - Eclipse

Eyeshadow: A:S:S - Drama shadow - Ruby
Nailpolish: A:S:S - Nailpolish - Jet black

Outfit: +DV8+ - Reznik - Fire Brick (Dark Future Hunt Gift for Guys)
Cuffs: [ h ] - Cuffs - Metal Ring 2.0 - Black
Tattoo: La Malvada Mujer - Cubico (free)
Boots: New Rock - Neptune Black Boots

On Raven:
Skin: - Glam Affair - Castalia Vampire skin B (previous TDR-item)
Hair: *C + C* - Apnea
Eyes: {nestle my bosom} - Tunnel eyes
Lipstick: :GP: - Pout-Lips 3 (previous gift)

Outfit: +DV8+ - Merciless - Blood (Dark Future Hunt Gift for Girls)
Boots: +DV8+ - Eliminator Boot 2.0 - Blood


Acharon enjoyed his mornings. It was the rare time when he could spend some moments alone. The best was he did not have to made any desicion. His mornings were planed or more he had a strict schedule of actions he performed after waking. Standing on the floor of his pyramid formed temple only he and some of his servants entered, he looked over the capital city of his empire. He was the Hybrid. The living god of the empire, the creature which was able to understand all the inhabitants of the land around the big river and the one who reigned all of them. Nobody ever tried to fight this system.
Acharon I
Of course only few knew that he was the 24th hybrid. Most of his subjects believed that the country had been founded by him. And that he also created the two races which lived in it. The human like noori and the reptilian saya. Acharon used to adress them with words like "my beloved children" or when he spoke with a saya "my beloved breed". But of course it was him who was the child of two races and not the father. Before the first hybrid had been created the noori and the saya nearly managed to kill each other completly. They were not able to understand the needs and reasons of the other race. The talents and abilities of each race were very different but their powers were equal, and they knew how to use their strenghts against the weaknesses of the other race. The noori usually attacked in the mornings, the reptilian saya were slow at this time of the day. They needed the sunlight to heat the thick blood in their veines but when having spend some time in the sun they became faster than any noori. Of course they used this against their foes. When some noori decided to try to darken the sky to keep the saya from the sunlight it was enough for some of the noori leaders. Being aware of the fact that the war against the saya would abolish both races at the end they started to try to communicate with some saya. They first formed a parliament in which both races would decide and create laws together but unfortunatly it didn't work to keep the humans and the reptilians from fighting against each other. So a small group started the hybrid cult.
Acharon II
They were very smart noori and saya and they knew more about the minds of their fellow beings than they wanted to know. And they hated to abuse this knowledge but they disliked the war more. It was them who created the story of the hybrid which created both races and it was also them who spend a lot of time with experimenting to create such a hybrid. Their cult grew slowly which allready brought a bit more peace to the land around the big river. And finally they managed to create the first hybrid. He hatched from an egg which had been layed by a human woman. After having been taught by both races he was ready to reign. So the priests of the hybrid cult started weekly ceremonies in which they called the hybrid and in the fifth he appeared the first hybrid appeared. He only had to open a hidden door and to walk into a room but for those who watched it looked like a miracle. So they respected him without that he needed to fight for power. The cult had managed to make the people willing to follow the hybrid. Acharon was one of the few who knew the whole story and he was aware of his duties. It was his existance which kept the peace but in the mornings he enjoyed the chance to bath alone in the river and to forget the weight of his position for a moment.
Acharon III
The idea of silks for men was alwas an idea I could not really follow. Until I put together a male avatar and tried the silks vom Al Jamal. The details of those are amazing and they cover everything which should be covered in public without hiding the beauty of the rest of the body. AL Jamal does not only offer silks they also sell fitting jewlery. For those who want to test the look of silks on their avatar there is a gift. Its the purple silks on the picture on the middle. Although it is a gift it has many details. I like that the ring which holds the loincloth isn t fully closed. The Aarat silks on the first picture have gems on the front. They are as all items from Al Jamal available in many colours and the colour of the gems always fits perfectly to the cloth of the silks. The armbands and the harness are designed to fit to the silks. The loincloth looks like being attached to the wire which holds the gems together. The Susa silks on the third picture look elegant with all the gold which has been used to create them. They also have gems on the front but at those silks they look like having been put on a plate of gold. The jinn cuffs go very well with those silks as they are also created by using gold. Fitting to the Susa silks is also a chestpiece available. The gems which have been used for it are the same as the ones on the silks. All the items from Al Jamal come with a resizescript. They are non copy but trans and include a giftbox in case that they should be a gift for somebody. It is worth to visit the store as they play very nice music there.
Fallen Gods Inc. is also a store where always nice music is played but of course the music is only one of the reasons to visit the store. An other important reason to visit Fallen Gods Inc. are the skins and other items which are sold there. The skin used in this blog entry is one of them. It belongs to the hybrid series. It would be more correct to speak of scales and not of skin in when it comes to the skin which has been used in this blog entry. It is available in several colours and even more face options. I liked the terra arkanum version best as it has intresting patterns on the forehead.
The hair comes from Wasabi Pills, it is the branch version of the maeve hair. I like the colour contrast of the hair in powder and the earthcoloured skin. And it amazes me that this very long hair goes so well with a very male looking avatar. So here the list of the used items.

Harness: Al Jamal - Aarat harness - Ivory (60 L$)

Annoying Clones

Eiren was not glad. The pale purple one had managed to escape again. So she had to search her clone. It was horrible if she would have known how exhausting clones could be she would never have started to experiement with creating them. The first ones were total fails. But she had hope when creating the last one. It looked mainly like her but had a pale purple skin
Gift Corset and hunt jeans
The clone became smarter every day. First Eiren was very glad about this but then it started to develop habbits she also had. And one of her major habbits was to shop a lot. That meant the clone always escaped to go shopping. It wasn't the problem that people saw it. Unique looks were popular so nobody supposed that the clone would be something else than a human with a special taste in style. Eiren was more annoyed about having to pay its clothing too.
black from a lucky board
The Ezura VIP group has 1000 Members. To celebrate this there is a gift for those members in the store. Its a corset with frills. In the front it has some leopard patterns. The frills come with resize script. There is also a new gift on the lucky board at ezura, this lucky board is also only for members. It is a dollie dress. The set includes fitting gloves and the skirt has a bow at the back.
The short blue jeans are the gift from crayon design in the skate'n surf hunt. The cuffs and the little bags are put together in one piece and have a resize script. The little keychain also belongs to the trousers.

Corset: + eX + ezura Xue 1K VIP Gift (0 L$ but Groupjoingfee is 50 L$)
Dress: + eX + ezura Xue 2011 Rezz Month LB Gift (0 L$ but Groupjoingfee is 50 L$)
Jeans: Crayon Design - Skate'n Surf Hunt - Baggy pants blue [unisex] (0 L$)

[(d)row, (d)row your boat]

This is most likely the least fitting headline I've ever chosen (apart from the fact that it includes the word 'drow'), but the line simply got stuck in my head when I was working on the picture, and in the end I couldn't resist to actually use it. Ahem, back to the topic! This super-generous and detailed outfit, or rather avatar, is AC Design's contribution to the Supernatural Hunt, which will be running until May, 31st.
You are looking for a closed purple supernatural bottle.

[(d)row, (d)row your boat]

The male gift includes everything shown in the picture, except the hair and eyes, and I took the liberty of showing different variants of how to wear this really nice set of roleplay-gear. You also get the weapons (bow and quiver, unscripted), ears, horns and the tail, the skin and the golden stripes on a tattoo layer. The female outfit is much more revealing, with merely a harness of golden straps covering your bits, but I believe it's possible to mix and match both sets in case you want a less unveiling look.

Gender change challenge


Having a little chat this morning, Dagmar  commented on how she had managed to make a male avatar for  0L and wondered if others may enjoy the challenge of doing the same. Well of course I thought it was an amazing idea and so did others, so Dags set up a Flickr group for the challenge, and wow what fun it's been! As you can imagine males set about it straight away and some who shall remain nameless (pssst don't tell anyone I told you but it's Flash Unplugged) seem to be having a little too much fun with it if you ask me! anyway here is my offering which was harder than I imagined......let me introduce to you Fauno Manwall! oh by the way I hope this doesn't make my avatar an unworthy offering by telling you he is ...ummm how should I say ...incomplete! ooh err.

Black Eric

They called him Eric the black. Not because of his hair. He tinted it regularly and nobody had a clue which colour it normaly had. Eric got his name because he was one of the bravest surfers in the area. His face normaly told a story about this.
free guys skin
He went surfing when all his friends stayed at home. He was the one who even was on the water when it was clear that a thunderstorm would start in the next ten minutes but he loved it. He enjoyed the challenge very much.
But to surf so much really made a difference. So it was him who won all contests. And he was the one who became a famous designer of surf clothing and surfboards after his carrer as surfer. They all had supposed that he would be insane but he only was crazy enough to be really good in everything he did.
Surferguy 1
Quite often new second life residents cross my way and it is often tricky for me to help the male ones to dress up so that they look less like a newbie. I do not really have a clue about free items for guys so I started a challenge on flickr with the title "Switch your gender for 0 Linden". The task is to create an avatar of the gender you normaly not use in second life without paying a linden for it. I have to admit I failed because I used eyes from Sterling artistry eyes which are 50 Linden and this version of the avatar is barefoot which is also not really perfect so I need to try it again. But its a start I guess.
When visiting the skin and shape expo 2011 I picked up the gift shapes from moonlight shapes. There was a male shape in the gift which has the name Carl. The skin is a gift from sacred. To get it you need to take part in a enquiry. Its a really great skin and I love the wounds it has.
The hair is a combination of a hairtattoo from white widow in the skate'n surf hunt and hair from blackmaria, a cool japanese store which has lots of free punk hair. The clothing also comes from the skate'n surf hunt. The top is the gift from Orquidea and the shorts the male gift from apricot paws.

Shape: ~MS~ Carl Shape (0 L$ gift at the Skin and Shape Expo 2011 ends at the 20th)
Skin: *Sacred* free skin (0 L$)
Shirt: ORQUIDEA surf shirt MALE (0 L$)
Shorts: AP - Echo Shorts - SNS Blue Blast Dark (0 L$)
Hairtattoo: [White~Widow] Skate 'N Surf Gift (0 L$)
Hair: +BM+ RIUS Black (0 L$)
Eyes: Sterling Artistry : sa_ForestElfEyes_CelinFerns (50 L$, there are some free eyes in the store)

Windsurfingpose: Sterling Artistry Boutique : sa poses Windsurf 5pack (SNS hunt gift) (0 L$)
Surfboard: Magnifique Poses : *MP* Guys Surfboard Pose Prop (SNS hunt gift) (0 L$)

Although I made by mistake a 50 Linden avatar and not a 0 Linden avatar I had a lot of fun. It would be great if more would join the fun. There is a flickr group to share all the created avatars. This will be a great resource if a newbie who needs help crosses your way.

Dancing Android

Sebian X24 had a problem. It was not a big problem it was more a bit odd. She had been created to help in the communication between computers and humans. So her ai wasn t that massive as the ai of the big computers was who took care of nearly everything. They controlled the preassure in the conduits, the traffic and even the oven which were used to bake bread. Sebian spoke with those ais. Humans were not able to understand the systems they once created anymore so they needed helpers like her.
eX android
But one of the contacts with a very old ai had been a bit too much for her. Since this time she always thought she would hear music when she walked over the lattice which covered some data circuits. But people slowly got used to the dancing android.
eX feeling like dancing
The avant garde sets are one of the latest releases by Ezura Xue. for them she designed latex which covers the body in stripes. Beside the latex there are prim parts which are worn on the upper part of the body. The neck is covered by several rings and on the chest there metalsticks put together. The latex parts come on the tattoo, undies/undershirt, trousers/shirt layer. The gloves of course on the glove layer. Ezura also designed fitting shoes and a fitting headdress to the outfit. They are as the outfit available in black, red and white. The headdress comes with a hud. It includes the options to choose the colour of the item, to change the colour of the glow and even to choose how transparent it should be. The hud of the shoes also offers many options. It is possible to change the glow and the glowcolor and to decide how shiny the shoes should be. I like the heel of the shoes very much which looks like a tire in my opinion.

The poses in this pose come all from Di's Opera. It is worth to have a look at this posestore as she sells very unique poses which are very well made. And they even look good when being used by small avatars.
The pictures have been taken at the next day.

She's a like a rainbow


I LOVE THIS DRESS! in fact I love all of them in the new range at Vero Modero thats it was incredibly hard to decide which was my favourite, but since this rainbow one is so delightfully colourful , oh and instantly reminded me of one of my favorites songs by The Rolling Stones ( yes yes that one 'she's like a rainbow') I knew this was the one for me...umm and the dots one Ahem anyway.....

But on the theme of rainbows there is a wonderfully technicolour hair out as a gift at BC332  It was a little bit too colourful to wear with this outfit and so I opted for this beautiful classic bob instead , which incidentally is also a group gift at the same store.

Take a look at these!, I know you're going to want them all!

Not wanting the day to end

In the evening she was all exhausted. She had spend the whole day with surfing, talking with friends and eating a bit. Now she was tired. But somehow she did not want to go home. The day had been so magical and she simply did not want it to end.
aemeth skin at the beath
a.e.meth takes part at the skin and shape expo which will end at the 20th. There they show also their new Andromeda skins which are available in three tones at the moment: peach, fair and tan. I love the romantic look of the skin. The skins come with several tattoolayers with lipstick and eyeliner/eyeshadow so it is easy to let the skin look great to every dress or outfit.

In Which Sian Goes Replicant

This is Sian. She's sort of new here.

Leezu! 1

Mostly, Sian wants to look like the future, and usually ends up looking shiny and glossy but when our cybernetic heroine fell hard for a harlequin recently — and where can you say that other than in Second Life? — she wanted to soften her look a bit.

Leezu! 3: Margo

And that's how Sian discovered Leezu Baxter's store, and fell in love with Leezu!'s (the exclamation mark is part of the name) strange, frilly yet timeless designs. She never looks quite ordinary in these clothes, and to her surprise and her sad clown sweetheart's delight, Sian came out looking like a replicant from a non-existent remake of Blade Runner, or a secretary from the Haus of Gaga.

Leezu! 4

Sian doesn't think that Leezu Baxter intended her clothes to be futuristic and cyberpunk (and actually, they go just as nicely with Sian's witchy look) , but the combination of frills and futuristic stylings, Louis XIV meets cyberpunk, makes for a striking and interesting look.

Leezu! 5: Jeanne Van Dark

City chic


Loving the City Chic look for project Themeory and so these boots & bag from LPD I couldn't love more! I really love these over sized bags, none of those silly little clutch bags for me no! I want to take almost everything I own out in my handbag and have room for more purchases ,...not that any of that is important in SL LOL, but what I do like about this bag too  is the the options to wear, as I've found that the animations if some (if at all)  don't make it appear like you are holding them properly well not with this one! Oh and I adore this little neckerchief with it's option change script, which is currently a hunt item but in store there is a luckyboard with a nice spotty one on too.

[mugshot in blood]

No... Gabriel hadn't really been lucky that night. After spying on his target in a rather unsuccessful fashion, the tall blond with those captivating eyes of blue and green had been involuntarily involved in a street fight of two gangs he'd never even heard about, barely making it to his car to patch himself up with some makeshift bandages - just to be almost immediately stopped by a police officer who considered his style of driving to be... suspicious. Not to mention the collection of unregistered weapons in the car's trunk. His employer surely wouldn't be amused, but for now, all Gabriel could do was to play along and give the camera his most innocent face...

LaVie RP

'Gabriel' is the latest male release from LaVie, and as usual, the generous creator Pompeja Rossini blessed us group members with a gorgeous variant of the skin. Fairly beaten up, the group-gift version of Gabriel makes a great roleplay skin, and it comes in both light and dark bodyhair, just as the full-priced release. The group has a joining fee of 300 L$, but considering the regular pressies for both men and women, it's a good investment to make.

Dressed for the beach

Spending a day at the beach. And of course wearing a bikini. But the sunblocker was a bit old so it turned out into strange patterns because of being a bit glue like.
The skate'n surf hunt started at saturday and the gifts in it are great. Fauna showed allready many of them and looked just great in the outfits. So here a bikini I love. It comes from Apricot Paws. The stripes i described as sunblocker are from enlil. They are tintable so you could simply use them as body paint. The wristlet is a hunt gift was well. The colours fit well to the water theme. It is the gift at Frippery. Even the pose is a huntgift. It was created by Suri the owner of SocialAngtz a very cool posestore.

On a Vintage theme


After the vintage swimsuit from 22769 that I blogged, I decided to keep on with the vintage theme and so this new dress from Vero Modero fits is perfect. Lace is so classic and the detailing of it is great!It comes with a couple of options  with the skirt & also has has a belt so that you can change the look of it slightly to your preference. When I tried on the dress I had no hesitation as to what I would wear on my feet, My lace ankle boots from Skifija look like they were made for this dress! and what better place to visit on my vintage theme than Paris 1900 I adore that sim, if you haven't been please do, I love the detailing . I have visited it hundreds of times now and always see something new each time I go.

Favourite Curry

Culture Shock is still going on and this is an other donation item from Acid & Mala. Its a red hippy top with a fitting skirt. The items are mod so it was possible to make them fit. The top comes with systemlayers so everything is covered decently. It reminds me somehow on my favourite meal as it looks a bit indian in my opinion. So time for sharing a recipte.

Savoy Cabbage Curry:
1 lb (450 g) savoy cabbage
2 cloves
2 cardamoms
1 cinnamon stick, 3 inches (7.5 cm) long
4 tbs ghee or vegetable oil (Butter works too)
4 medium-sized potatoes, peeled and cubed'
1 tbs grated fresh ginger
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tsp turmeric
4 medium-sized ripe tomatoes, each cut into 8 wedges
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp sugar
2/3 cup (150 ml) water

Grind the cloves, cardamom, and cinnamon stick into a fine powder and set aside.
Heat 3 tablespoons of the ghee or vegetable oil in a saucepan over moderate heat. Put the cubed potatoes in the pan and stir-fry them, scraping the bottom of the pan frequently, until they are lightly browned. Remove them from the pan and set them aside.
Put the remaining tablespoon of ghee or vegetable oil in the same saucepan and stir-fry the grated ginger, cayenne pepper and turmeric. Fry for a few seconds more. Add the shredded cabbage and fry for 3 or 4 more minutes, stirring regularly to mix it with the spices and prevent scorching. Add the tomatoes, fried potatoes, salt, sugar, and water. Cover the pan and simmer over low heat until all the vegetables are tender. Before serving, sprinkle the previously prepared ground sweet spices over the top and mix gently.

It might sound a bit odd to add cinnamon to such food but it really is needed and makes the curry much more tasty. It is also not a problem if some parts of the potatoes get glued on the saucepan when you stir them because you will put in the savoy cabbage into the saucepan and with the water it will disolve the fried potatoe parts from the bottom of the saucepan so that there is no need to be afraid of long dishwashing after eating.
