maybe sparrow

maybe sparrow you should wait
the hawks alight ’til morning
you’ll never pass beyond the gate
if you don’t hear my warning

When I saw these tights from Kyoot at Collabor88 for March I knew I wanted to put together a blue and green springtime look, preferably with some more bird-themed items (part of the tight design is birds and birdcages). I picked up this pretty tulip-sleeved dress with flowers and birds along the hem from JANE at March Mesh Madness (MMM12).

notes are hung so effortless
with the rise and fall of sparrow’s breast

Schadenfreude has a whole set of bird skull jewelry at FLUX right now, with cord/metal/gem/bead texture change options via HUD. I used the “Choose” option on the HUD to select which beads I wanted to change at a time, so I could create a repeating pattern of three different bead textures.

Lyric excerpts from “Maybe Sparrow” by Neko Case



I could not resist the temptation to acquire multiple colors of this cute Circus outfit from The Secret Store and put together a little circus-themed photoshoot. I had fun shopping for accessories, poses and props; credits for allthethings follow the pictures.

all eyes on me in the center of the ring just like a circus
when I crack that whip, everybody gonna trip just like a circus


there’s only two types of people in the world
the ones that entertain and the ones that observe


I’m like the ringleader, I call the shots
I’m like a firecracker, I make it hot

Lyric excerpts from “Circus” by Britney Spears


I got somethin’ and it goes thumpin’ like this
All you need is my uhn tiss uhn tiss uhn tiss

I decided to go outside my loner-hermit comfort zone a little last week and wound up going out to a club with some peeps. This is a thing I pretty much never do in SL anymore, and I’d never really gone to such a bustling venue, so it was definitely outside my usual SL routine — usually this girl hangs out at one of our parcels or goes shopping alone. >.> But I went! And socialized a bit! I even met a fellow Button! It was fun. Now I just have to remember to, y’know, venture out again sometime.

This is what I wore on the night in question. I started with the Lussuria skirt from elymode — high waist, scandalously-short hemline, 100% sexy and fun — and these knee-high rigged mesh Flutter boots from lassitude & ennui, then went back to coldLogic to try on shirts again because, hey, apparently we’re all about the coldLogic rigged mesh shirts lately here. This is the watts shirt in white (black and white stripes). Of course, once I picked out this shirt, I wanted socks to match, and luckily amongst the many stripey sock and stocking offerings at Schadenfreude these Knit Stripey Socks were a darn near perfect match. The eyeliner I’m wearing is also from Schadenfreude, a group gift (still available at the elephant last I checked; group gifts are inside the elephant’s head, just wear your group tag and touchy-touchy the gift vendor), and includes the nailpolish.
