the Kubrick Rooms

The Kubrick rooms, created by Rumpledink Robbiani, are the SL homage to the late great Stanley Kubrick and his movies. From the hall (I loved the carpet btw) you enter the experience via door 237. It's fun and so nicely made. You recognise scenes from the movies. 

This is not a new spot my friend Smiling told me. He was the one that tp-ed me to the Kubrick Rooms, but unfortunately he had to leave in a hurry. Pitty coz he would have fitted brillantly into the surroundings being all grey ;-)

I explored later in the evening with my friend Dave, who changed his clothes to fit into the environment, dressed cool in black and white. 
Details of Dave his clothes see at the bottom of this blog.
The outfit I wear is called the Korova Milk Bar Droog getup, includes the hat. This Droog outfit can be collected at the Kubrick Rooms for free. 

Although there are not many pose balls around I did enjoy the sim coz it is so nicely made and detailed. And in case you are bored with SL you can sit down in the cinema and watch a Kubrick movie. Have fun exploring!

Now Dave is a guy who values nice clothes in SL. One of the few men in SL that do I guess. I love his outfits AND besides that he creates clothes himself now and then for fun, like for example the grey jumper. No they are not for sale ;-(
Dave is wearing:
Grey jumper made by Dave himself and not for sale

Cynful Diva

Wearing Cynful July dollarbie (grab it while you can) which I truly like except for the top which is rather simple compared to the detailed texture of the pants and corset. 

The blond hair is Chiharu the 5000 membership gift of D!va. Maybe I am too picky but for an over 5xxx membership gift I had expected something more well... flex. But it's a gift so I shouldn't complain.

Wearing League Taylor medium blond feline demo skin just to get a feel of it how it fits in with the blond me. But yeah like it a lot.

Emma's style

Introducing Emma, who's name actually is EmmaElizabeth but that's far too much typing, so Emma it is.

We met when doing some hunt where we shared info and ever since we are great friends. I liked her immediately.

She was very open and honest and told me about her avi Emma, who actually used to be her alt. Although we are very different and move around in other SL sims, (she has a punky kind of style, me the earthy girl), we do match on several issues. We have been exchanging info about Sales going on, awesome Group Gifts, new shops we found ever since. She tips me, I tip her.

I liked to do an item on Emma coz her style is so very different from mine and it's fun to show you a different look. 
Emma is punky but certainly not sloppy, on the contrary she is very very detailed and picky in all she does (creating her SL home, buying a skin pffff); she has high standards. I am lazy brat compared to her.
So here she is.

Thanks Emma for sending me pics and all the descriptions!

Julia my tru(e)th fav this week

Four new Truth hairs this week and I show you my fav called Julia. Julia comes in both regular and streaked in a single pack. I am fan of the streaked Truth hairs, which come in a wide choice of colors, mmm love them.

Slowly returning to a dark-haired girl again. Although I did love the blond hair with the pink and lilac streaks a lot.
My friend Dave is right when he told me the dark hair combines better with the dark brows of my League Taylor skin. I know, mmm but you know what League has a blond and red brow version of Taylor available......

Wasteland at Marrowstone island

This afternoon by coincidence I ended up in Marrowstone island, which is an awesome place. It's a wasteland with many many nice pose balls and great stuff, which is all for sale.
Coz actually this is a store (the I-Reckon Main Store)... yeah you can buy everything, but what a fun store to walk around. I loved the place!

The trailers, churches, abandonned factories, mobile homes, the redneck furniture, lawn chairs and white trash stuff. Awesome! A nice place to make your own RP: I died twice, prayed for my soul in the church and was resurrected (one cannot die in SL now can you). 
Of course I could not stop taking pictures...

I am in a fluffy mood today. It's summer, warm and lot's of friends are away on holiday. Last weekend the school holidays started here so no traffic jams, speeding, mmm (me: loves it!).

I had hoped to visit the Armidi Final Sale early my morning, but nope only received a note from the Warehouse (Mr. London Armidi) with the following info: 

Just a reminder that The Final Sale will be taking place at two private regions, not at Armidi itself.

We'll be making in announcement mid-morning with further details, including landmarks and event time.

Mmm, will have to wait till later meaning it will be crowded, meaning lag lag lag, coz by that time the US is awake too (SLT blergh). Sorry, no new old Armidi stuff to show you.

I went through my wardrobe instead and found a 'summer outfit' fitting my mood.

Swept under the carpet

I bought an Itan Couple dance ball and put all my dances in. Sighs, well not all coz some gave me trouble.
Made me very very frustrated. Yesterday I got help from my ex landlord and builder Alphons. He had the patience to explain to me what was wrong. I had to go to another object and then return to the original dancing ball to edit... mmm that was it, which btw was NOT in the instruction video!

Anyhow I am happy coz there are no balls lying around the place anymore, swept them all under the carpet and hid the big Itan ball under the cabin.
Thanks Alphons!

Truth Enix Streaked

Like every week Truth gives us 4 new hairstyles. 

My favorite this week: the Enix Streaked. And although I am a brunette I show you a nice blond this time: the Enix Streaked Champagne with pink and light purple streaks ;-)
Hey lol, it goes well with my new G*Field swimsuit strawberry (groupgift).

Isolde in G*Field swimwear with Truths' Kalista

Groupgifts I received today:

G*Field classic swimwear in 4 colors: black, red, strawberry and teal. I love this swimsuit, which I will use as a top too. Very nicely made with all the wrinkles and so generous to give us 4 colors! Thanks Cerberus!  

Exodi skin Isolde GroupGift all tones
I bought Exodi skin in the past (with hot red lips), but to be honest it is not my piece of cake anymore. The face of Isolde is nice and smooth, however without any characteristics. It's just another pretty face with pink lipstick (me don't like pink lipstick ...).
I show you Nuit and Soleil in the pictures. 
Although I normally wear lighter skins I prefered the Nuit version coz the other colors look grey and cool to me.
If you like the gifts join the groups (G*Field free, Exodi 250 Lindens).

Aww and the AWESOME hair I am wearing is Truth last weeks Kalista Streaked Java. I am totally in love with that hair. So flex, it dances around my head and everybody says I am beautiful. Lol ;-)

Innsmouth is a fictional town in the writings of H.P. Lovecraft, a horror writer who was active in the 1920s and 1930s.

Its SL counterpart is a dark, damp, grungy, rusty place with perpetual rain; an abandoned, antique town full of atmosphere, melancholy and weirdo things. Very nicely made with lots of details and a few surprises. 

It's a place that warrants exploration and is extremely photogenic, so I went there and met Nakula at the entrance of the sim. We decided to explore together. Now Nakula is studying the work of H.P. Lovecraft in RL and a big fan. So hey, what better guide could I wish ;-)

I show you some pics to give you an idea of the place. 
Best, however, is to go and explore yourselves. Taxi to Innsmouth.

The Companion

Smiling took me to The Companion today and as usual I enjoyed it very much our exploring together! Wow what a sim, I loved the trees, the atmosphere and the many many surprising pose balls. Did put on my warm sweater after arriving as this is a winter sim with lots of snow. Well the sweater did not really help as I ended up into the ice cold water many times ;-)

You follow the story line and on the way there are so many surprises. Well I show you some pictures, but as always my advise: Go and Enjoy yourselves!

Here's the taxi to The Companion 

The Companion, a region based on a Norwegian folktale. Follow the story  of a young man trying to reach his dream. By clicking the red spheres (look carefully, they are hard to find sometimes) you get the story which will guide you further through the region.
There is no music streamed. But there are sounds to illustrate the story. 

Sim still under construction owned by Frigg Ragu and built with the help of Miskat Qinan and Soror Nishi.

pitty I cannot let you hear the sound they make

Truth Rylan

It's been a while but today I bought new Truth hair. Awesome isn't it: called Rylan. My pack contained 4 colours dark brown hair with and without streaks.

You get value for your money coz lol it's a LOT of flex hair. The hair contains a built in menu, which allows you to change the colour of the streak. Many colours available in the menu ;-)
My favourite is darkbrown Java red streaked.

Smiling and me visited the isle of Drowsy, which is actually a shopping area. You find shops there of the Japanese designers  Kurotsubaki, BP, and Zero Number. But the isle is far too beautiful to visit only the shops and demands to be explored. We started yesterday Smiling and me and today I finished exploring.   

Some areas are a kind of fairytale town/forest (Dickens like). When you enter you walk the cobbled narrow main street with many surprises behind the doors. A narrow alley leading to a library, a deserted Zoo (take the apple and see what happens), cross a sewer and be surrounded by butterflies, enjoy yourselves at the abandoned playground, ... so many many things to do and discover at Drowsy.

The sim is tasteful (use of colour scheme, theme and composition) and definitely made with an eye for detail. I could not find any information/notecard about the isle on the sim itself, so I decided to google. I found usefull information on f.i. this Linden site

But hey go and explore yourselves. Enjoy!
