Another Year: Review

The end of the year keeps drawing closer, and closer, and I’m still unsure of what to say as I reflect on my time writing and blogging for the Tribune.

Among the other things I do within the grid, I have tried many a different RP sims, but now as the New Year is arriving I’m back to my original in Midian, and also a new one which I am fond of called Cranberry Cove.

Both places cause inspiration for the outfits I put together and the way my look has changed over the year, moving around from short hair to long, from black to brown, and finally back to red.

Another impact is going out to clubs, like The Velvet, and Alt 7, other than just DJing, and seeing what others are wearing.  Sometimes I see something I have, or something that is new for an event, and admire how well the item is made.

Collabor88 had a huge impact on the grid for me, a monthly event that would follow a theme and color scheme that gave us one location where many great designers came together.  This month’s Collabor88 is still open just a bit longer, so be sure to check it out if you have not yet.


Mesh has also become a great asset to bloggers, being able to use any pose and not worry if our hair will get buried in our chest, or a prim will disappear.

Collabor88 December

  • Skin: Glam Affair
  • Eyes: Ikon
  • Hair: Shag
  • Top: The Secret Store (Collabor88)
  • Skirt: Tee*fy (Collabor88)
  • Shoes: Berries Inc

  • Necklace: Willow (closed)
  • Pose: Marukin (Collabor88)

Location: Scribbled Hearts (Sim closed the 28th)

This second look is just something whimsical and fun, and a skill I wish I had in that place we call real life.  I love to ice skate, but I cannot do any of the fancy moves like I can in SL, a plus of AO’s and poses.  Luckily I can capture the dream at a gorgeous location called Scribbled hearts, which is sadly closing at the end of December, on the 28th.   In this outfit I use the Collabor88 dress from UFO, which I fell in love with when I saw the ad on flickr.  The keyhole in the front is perfect to give this cute dress a hint of sex appeal.  Because of it’s style, with the long sleeves and high waist I was reminded of ice skaters.
