The worst part of working on something all day is when you try to sit down and relax you still see the task every time you close your eyes. I feel like the shadow angle here (one of the Bryn Oh ones on firestorm, I can't remember which) makes it look like, even though the avatar has her eyes closed and is taking a break from work, the shadow of herself is still concentrated on working.
Today is a break from things for me in a way so I am keeping the writing to a minimum and will just let you read the details below.
Well, who could sleep really when they have a corset on? But ignore that thought because it's a picture and it has a night time feel and shhhh I am tired. :P
My corset is one of three colors from Lassitude&Ennui for the Adore&Abhor 5 year anniversary celebration. I was on vacation so I didn't get to put an item out and I missed the start of it (which made me SUPER SAD) but it's still going on and there are so many great deals so check it out! My collar is also from L&E and is available at the L'Accessoires event. It's romantic and lovely as L&E does perfectly. I added an underwear set from Sn@tch (an older item but still good!) that also had the romance vibe going on to match. More details below! Worn:
Corset: Lassitude&Ennui @ Adore&Abhor anniversary, other colors available
Collar: Lassitude&Ennui @ L'Accessories, other colors available
Lingerie: Sn@tch, several colors included in the pack w/transfer permissions
Hair: Analog Dog
Skin and Eyes: YS & YS, past TDR item, not sure if this exact skin is available in the store
Stitched Eyebrows: Miss Shippe's Studio

I got this dress from Valentina E. for Zodiac and it is incredibly sexy. I wanted to add some cute to the look so I added this hood from BCC at the Arcade and this skin from Pink Fuel for the Adore&Abhor anniversary and, voila!, a sexy red riding hood look for the day.
I should note that in SL I could not get the hood to work over the dress and hair without parts of both poking through it. I edited it in Gimp because I really loved how the items looked together but just know that if you want to wear both inworld together you might not be able to get it to work. Details:
Dress: Valentina E. @ Zodiac, other colors available
Hood: BCC @ The Arcade, gacha item
Skin: Pink Fuel @ The Adore&Abhor anniversary celebration, 75L
Eyeliner: Mons @ Marketplace, 1L
Hair: Alice Project
Nails: Leverocci, 30L
People need to make more shadowboxes in general but especially incorporated into furniture, like this table set from Circa for the Lavender Hill Hunt. I forgot how much I loved them until I got these and then I was all WHY DON'T PEOPLE DO THIS MORE OFTEN!? I suppose people don't do it too much because the land impact result is usually frightening but I generally will make room for one or two high LI items in my house and leave the rest low impact. At 35 LI for the tall table and 25 for the short table it's a big chunk of my meager prims but I love this so much that at least one of them will stay in my house for sure.
Why do I like these so much, you may ask, since they are simply tables with little trees in them? Well, that is wrong. It's more than trees. Look at the close up below:
FRICKIN' BUTTERFLIES FLAPPING AROUND INSIDE IT. There are trees and hills and butterflies and a tiny well and a bird and grass and fog and yeah I love it. :P If you are a shadowbox lover like me then I suggest you get this fast because the hunt they are available in will be over March 10th. Run!! The items are 5L and there are two objects to find to get the complete set. Go to Circa HERE to snag them.
I should also mention that I do not have shadows on in this picture. Those amazing shadows are courtesy of my new skybox from Apple Fall. In fact, this entire photo is unedited, aside from cropping and a little framing. So cool!
A bazillion while ago I told the owner of Squeek! that she should make some worms. I don't exactly remember the context but it happened somehow. The other day she was all "Hey remember when you said I should make worms? Well, I finally did!" I did a little happy chair dance which seems sort of odd when you consider I am happy about mouth worms but it's SL so hey. :P
My gorgeous to the max top is from Fameshed from Valentina E. You can't see it that well but it's cropped and red and mesh and awesome. Because it's sort of loose and flow-y it doesn't come with an alpha so, if you ca, make sure it fits you first! My skin was a marketplace special from Pulse skins and it was cheap and limited time only I think so grab it before it's gone. More item details below! Worn:
