Touche

Its so hard to believe that Fall is already creeping in.  Much slower in some places than others, but still visible on the horizon.  Its my favorite season (though I could do without all of the holiday stress) and recently its hues have become some of my most loved.  The golds, reds and oranges I used to avoid like the plague are now threatening to take over my wardrobe.  I had always thought browns so dull, but now they feel comforting and cozy to me.

This skirt and the furniture pieces combine all these shades I’ve come to adore.  I love that the hem and waist follow the circular patterns of the skirts instead of a straight crease, giving it a very delicate appearance.

The runner on the table and the throw on the bench are clickable to color-change, sticking with the autumn tones.

Escape from Risk City

I just recently saw on Marketplace that Khush has a new prop/pose set out called Fun With Cuffs that I just HAD to have.  I didn’t know what I would do with it yet, but I wanted to make sure I had it when the idea started forming.

It didn’t take long.

I’m a fan of Snake Plissken, the hero of John Carpenter’s Escape From New York and Escape from L.A.  As I was exploring the art sim, Risk City, I noticed that there were elements I could work with to create my own version.

The set includes four poses and four versions of the handcuffs to be used with each pose, which are very well-created.  I’ll certainly have to try to find Khush’s store in-world.  And what better to wear?  Twisted & Spoiled had the perfect outfit with their No Angel design.

Will I make my escape?  Will I make it out of those cuffs?  Will I even want to?

I miss my island.  I miss my beach.  In fact, I missed it so much, I had to go and buy a small plot of beachfront property (which somehow manages to be right smack in the middle of several horse ranches).  I’ve been hard at work building a pier and new beach house and needed a break.


I’ve been using a lot of Distressed Textures in my builds recently and I could spend hours and thousands of Linden there.  They just moved their mainstore last week and the new sim is a great place for pictures.  There was a sim photo contest running and I’m not sure of the deadline for submissions, so make sure to drop by and see the details to find out when it ends.  If you don’t have time to visit in-world, most everything is available conveniently on Marketplace.

 

I can’t wait til I’m done and can begin the fun part of decorating!  I found so many cute new things at Cheeky Pea, Clutter, Crackberry, MudHoney, and Awesome Blossom.  It seems there are so many stores out with tons of adorable shabby chic pieces, its hard to stay focused and choose selectively what I really need and I just buy everything!

 

Of course, I did take some shopping time away from the new project to go grab this cute shirt and the shorts my sis, Bubbles, featured from Tres Blah last week.  The rest of my list will have to wait…I think I need more textures.
