Fire and Ice

Some say the world will end in fire

Some say in ice.

From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if I had to perish twice,

I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.

Fire and Ice by Robert Frost

A dear friend gave me this attitude provoking leather outfit as a graduation present. I liked it so much that I wanted to feature it in my blog and so went looking for an edgy sim for photo backgrounds. I  took a  peek at a new dystopian post-apocalyptic role play sim called Thinis and was just totally floored by its stark visuals of a world cleansed by nuclear fire. The opening stanza of the poem Fire and Ice by Robert Frost immediately came to my mind. I thought that it might be very evocative to juxtaposition the alternative ends of the world suggested in the poem - fire and ice. I hope that you like the results.

Tra la it's May

Picnic Chic by Boudoir

Let's see ... May Day ... a spring festival celebrating renewal and fertility. That sounds about right. It is that time of year, afterall. And we want to be at our prettiest and be most attractive. Spring flirtations can become summer romances. Well, I just found the prettiest spring dress at Boudoir. It's called Picnic Chic.

Picnic Chic is designed by Precious Restless, skin and fashion designer and co-owner of Boudoir. It sells for L$550. Picnic Chic is absolutely the cutest thing. It comes with a blouse, skirt, and hat.  The whites and pastels of the dress are so refreshing. But, it's the hat that makes this outfit so irresistable. 

The Royal Wedding has made hats the latest rage. This hat is a must have in Second Life. Have you ever seen a more gorgeous hat? Its abundance of spring flowers makes it a fabulous celebration of the season.  

My hair is from ARGRACE and is called Wish. It was designed by rika Oyen. Wish comes in nine colors - black, dark brown, light brown, red, copper, amber, platinum, blonde and dark blonde. They sell for L$250 per color. All nine colors are available in a fat pack for L$1500.

My necklace, earrings, and ring are from a collection called Sakura created by Alienbear Gupte, jewellry designer and owner of Alienbear's Designs. They are a graduation gift to me from my dear friend Stevie.

Tra la, it's May, the lusty month of May
That lovely month when everyone goes blissfully astray
Tra la, it's here, that shocking time of year
When tons of wicked little thoughts merrily appear.

From Camelot by Lerner and Loewe

Tra la la la la
Happy May Day Everyone
