My Inspiration?

zoe connolly started this meme about our avatar’s inspiration, and i figure hey, i could use some prompts for writing, so i’m jumping on board.

(picture stolen from jessyka cause she made it cute :p)

my avatar has always had an odd personal style.. not to mention the fact that she is a shape-shifter, which leaves me with endless possibilities.

my main style is mostly influenced by anime. i have always loved the style of japanese cartoons, the way people look, with their oddly styled, and coloured hair, and their crazy clothing.

my avatar’s look also comes from the harajuku street style of dress seen in japan, as well as many J-Rock musicians. i am heavily influenced by their outlandish style of dress and the fact that even with so many people in their country, they tend to all be so very unique in style.

yes i am a little bit of a japan-nerd…

my body shape is inspired by my rl shape.. from a few years ago. i’m not going to lie, i’m no a thin girl, and i have gained a bit of weight, but the body shape you see on nimil now, is the body i had in high school more or less, only with smaller boobs lol. my face is a merging of my real life self and more of that anime stylization which i find personally aesthetically pleasing.

some of my looks are also inspired by musicians and actors… my more dressy looks tend to lean towards pinup girl style. but i cannot pinpoint a single musician or actor that i am inspired by… i suppose its more the style they wear but not them specifically, if that makes sense? i’m also inspired by fantasy and scifi stories full of elves and hybrid people.

anyway, that’s me sorta.. to the best i can explain anyway.

Nimil’s Hair Fair Report

i had a wonderful time at the hair fair preview thing! even though a few booths were still empty or half open i was able to grab most of the stuff i wanted on preview day!
this year’s hair fair was themed after candy land, and i was dying of sugar shock at every turn. giant cup cakes! candy! and of course hair (now thinking about it.. getting candy in your hair or hair in your candy is kinda gross)
there were some great booths, and some interesting hair this year, and of course there was lag… even though they asked us to keep the arc down i saw plenty of people there in friggin ball gowns and arc’s well over 2k. i myself chose a very low arc outfit, no shoes, and hair from etd which kept me in the green and somewhere around 400 i think.
see this sign? if you can’t figure out what to wear for hair fair or you show up in something lagtastic and start bitching about the lag, click this sign and get the low arc outfit and hair provided! it will help you and the people around you enjoy the hair fair!
congrats to this year’s flickr contest winners! i was lazy and didn’t enter this year (oops) but i was very blown away with those who did! everyone should go check them out!
i know i showed up in different hair but my friend autumn gave me her awesome new hair called gattina and i decided i had to wear it for the rest of the day! it worked well with my outfit as well!
here’s a closeup of this awesome hair!
great isn’t it? make sure you stop by the tiny bird booth and check out all of autumn’s awesome newness!
there was alot of great crazy hair at the hair fair, here’s a couple that i didn’t actually buy but i did admire alot.
this one is by curio obscura (i hope i got that right, i’m not on sl at the moment to check!) and it’s called “let them eat cake off of your head” and it features some crazy doll hair style curls and mountains of cake 😮 perfect for the hair fair theme this year! just please don’t wear it at the hair fair please!
this one is by toast bard and i am stupid and forgot to note down the name of it but it made me laugh since you could pretty much call yourself a pot head when you wear it :p. i might actually go back and get this one.
while roaming around, i bumped into the owner of calico creations and she tossed me a blogger pack of hair 😀 she was actually the only hair designer at the preview who actually did that, and i will be blogging that in another post later on! she is also wearing a cute style that i ended up buying a black pack of because i can never have too many pig tails. anyway i wanted to take a photo of her because she was very nice 🙂
the last photo of the hair fair that i got is my favourite booth at the fair (not to mention a favourite store of mine)
the hair at house of munster is awesome and really fits my punk/goth moods. i will be going back for more of her hair fair hair because she didn’t have the black pack vendor set out for one of the hairs i wanted, but i did grab another from her booth that i will have in my hair fair haul blog later on.
and that’s all i have for this report. stay tuned for more after i can properly log into sl and take photos of everything i got.

it’s hair fair time!

and once again i get to go see it before the crowd gets in! and i’ll be posting a double edition of my hair fair report here and on forced midnight!

i am so excited to go again this year! last year’s haul was awesome and i got a ton of great hair.. anyone that knows me knows that my inventory is 80% hair lol so this should be another haul of awesome!

i am not sure if i will be at the pj party but i will definitely be lurking around the sims at some point so please feel free to pounce on me if you wish :p i don’t bite, but i do scurry away from big crowds and big names >_>

if you have any hair that you would like to have showcased on forced midnight (must meet the requirements of the blog please) let me know! i’d love to have your stuff on there 😀

the laziest girl on the internet

that should be my new title. all the junk that i could be doing, all the stuff i could write about, take pictures for, etc… i am just too lazy to bother D:

my rezday was almost a week ago, and i didn’t write a blog about it! i should really write one up about all the amazing presents lucas bought me even though i told him i really didn’t need/want anything for my rezday, just him ❤ he bought me a ton of clothing at the fashion expo.

i did my poppins rezday jump which the lovely moggs had come up with sometime last year. she says lucas and i were her inspiration because we used to naked skydive off our skybox XD and the rest of the rezday was spent with cuddles and trying on my new outfits.

the tasteful butt meme gallery opening went off without a hitch and was quite fun. there were alot of people i didn’t know there but i reigned in my anti-social fear and hung around for the duration. got to dance on a ledge with jaeck and near the end crap mariner tried to chainsaw me! evil robots… *grumbles* the gallery is open from now until the end of the month and you can get there by clicking here.

in sorta rl meets sl news, moggs sent me NINE packages of tim tams! i am in biscuit heaven and if you see me somewhere laying in a puddle of melted chocolate near death please blame her :p

and that’s all i’ve got…

our asses will be hung

in a gallery that is :p

Tymmerie Thorne has organized a gallery showing of as many photos from the butt meme that she could get permission for. so with lucas’ permission i submitted the picture i took 😀 so from the 13th to the 30th of this month, our asses will be hanging in a gallery with some other asses from all over second life XD. this will be the third time one of my photos has been in some sort of gallery showing. yay!

my rez day is 2 days away! time has totally flown by and i still haven’t decided if i want to do anything, and if i do want to do something, what i want to do, and/or where i want to do said thing. *sighs* 3 years in sl and i still wander around like a chicken with my head cut off.

i don’t know what else to talk about, haven’t been up to much lately. been lazy D:

ramblings

i haven’t written in a while and i’m tired of apologizing for that.. so i’m not gonna. the previously mentioned carrie tribute dress is now available inworld at our store if you are interested in getting it. i’m kinda disappointed in its lack of sales, but instead of being hard on myself i’m just going to say that it was probably just not something the normal crowd would go for, not to mention its my first real attempt at making a dress. but i’m not going to let it stop me. no… i’m going to keep trying and learn, and do better stuff. i know i’ll never be some super fashionista clothing designer, and who are we kidding, i’d never want to be that to begin with. but i do want to make things i am proud of, and even though i am proud of my carrie dress, i can do better.

next week is my 3rd rezday. i have no idea if i am going to party for it, or if i am going to just silently let it slip past. haven’t decided yet.

i totally stopped doing my 365 sl thing and i feel bad now.. its been several days without a photo and i know i need to catch back up and keep going but i just feel very uninspired to do any photos lately…

i do want to get back into photography though and i have been trying to come up with a way to extend my abilities to the public. recently i took some lovely shots of my sl brother and his new wife ava.

caile & avacaile & ava

caile & avacaile & ava

they are adorable together ❤ but i want to do more of these and perhaps for paying customers :p (no i do not charge family..) as well as maybe do some creepier work for people who are interested in that sort of thing. i know i keep talking about it and never do it but i just can’t seem to figure out what to charge for stuff. that’s mainly what stops me.

oh speaking of photos there’s a butt meme going around the bloggers and plurkers of sl, so lucas and i decided to make ours a double 😀

i dunno if that will show up for everyone, i had to flag it moderate because last time i left a butt photo flagged safe flickr had a hissy fit. we have cute butts, flickr should be glad i put our asses on there at all.

and so my blogging for today ends. i dunno what else to say.
