I’m sick this week! 🙁 Not feeling well, so here’s a quick pic featuring something that looks like it belongs to the The Weeknd’s Party Monster. I love Party Monster because of its story. Much like Phaseone’s remix of Breakin’ Bread, it speaks of someone who starts out in power, but his surroundings quickly overwhelm him and become his undoing.
I can’t seem to remember what this theme is called! I’ve seen it in Macbeth and Scarface as well. Does anyone remember? Leave me a clue in the comments if you can think of what that kind of plot device is. Thanks!

Hey! Hope your morning’s good. I’m doing this as a warmup before I launch into all the work I need to get done (before I crash and have a long nap, since I only slept for 4 hours).
How’d I do this picture, you ask? Picmonkey! People look down on photo editors, but you know what? Don’t listen to them. What matters is making something cool and fun to look at. How you created it isn’t relevant and it isn’t anyone’s place to judge you.
Anyway, so what you do to get this effect is load up your picture on Picmonkey, sharpen it, crop it as you like, and then do a few texture overlays. They have a lot of nice ones! Then when you’re ready, apply a black and white photo filter. The filter will allow you to “erase” where the filter applies to the picture. Just brush over it a few times in interesting spots and bam. You’ve got this effect.
Not so hard to do now that you know the secret, right? But it doesn’t make my pictures any less pretty. How I got there is not important. It’s that I got there. Y’know what I mean?
As my design teacher used to say- “It’s just a drawing.” It’s just a picture! Sometimes you have to get out of the way of yourself–that’s when you start to have fun.

The weekend’s here, and I’m not feeling anything other than getting ready to hit the beach irl tomorrow. While I’m on the shore contemplating new ways to paint, here’s some questions I’ve got for you. My fab list is brought to you by RC Cluster’s Lifty Fizz Soda, plus my brand-new super-cute skin that’s out right now.
- Did you know you can make your own Bento mesh head? Buy this creator’s program from Yabusaka Loon, and play with the sliders until you’ve got a face you’re happy with. Further customization can be achieved by editing the mesh file in Blender, if you’re so inclined. Omega carries an easy installation kit for your finished head, too.
- You got Slink Dynamic Hands, great. What about nails, y’all? Get on the long tips train and pick up some nails from Gorgeous Dolls. They even carry a claws set!
- Did you know there’s a free Bento hands poser on Marketplace? Aren’t I seriously saving your life right now?
- Have you checked out the new exhibit of Second Life’s history? I initially thought it would be a pile of cheerleading horseradish, but it turned out to have both praise and criticism of the company’s past. I recommend checking it out if you can.
- Know that Bento horse I wrote about a bit ago? It’s being released tomorrow! The final price of the horse is L3889. There will be English and Western horses available to buy; if you purchase one variant, you can get the other horse for L1950.
That’s it from me! I’m off for outings, beachings, and tannings. See ya!

I believe them bones are me.
Some say we’re born into the grave.
I’ve been shambling all over SL in this skeleton avatar! A free gift from Linden Labs, you can grab this skeleton at the Portal Park. I recommend pairing it with RC Cluster’s new Zombie AO. It’ll give it a perfectly creepy effect.
Right now I’ve got two things for you. The first is this mask set I made for Halloween–grab this at my mainstore or on marketplace. These masks are hand-painted and very fun, and are only 100L for the pack.
Next up–Burn2 is back! A digital version of the Burning Man festival, it’s a big art party that lasts a week and is full of fantastic exhibits. And guess what? You can get a free campsite there too. Mine is located here if you want to visit.
Whatever you do this month, I hope it’s fun-filled for you. Lemme know of your upcoming plans and parties in the comments! I want to drop by!

Listen, I didn’t get invited to take part of that cool sale on Marketplace with special vendors, and you probably didn’t either. I don’t care. I can make my own sale, you know? Bring the chips and salsa to my own party.
So what do I have? TWELVE DAYS OF MAKEUP.
I put makeup on sale, every single frikkin’ day, for twelve days, and each day that makeup’s 50L. That’s it. BAM isn’t that amazing? Since I started this a little late, these three packs of makeup are on sale for 50L each for both Friday AND Saturday, and plus there’ll be one more makeup pack on sale tomorrow.
I will announce each pack of makeup on Juicybomb until the sale is done. When a makeup goes on sale, grab it then, because there’s only one sale per day! Early bird gets the worm.
All makeup will contain Omega appliers and system tattoos. Good for those of you who just bought those Logo heads, right? Right!
TP to my mainstore to grab the first three packs of makeup. Happy shopping!
