"Grand Illusion..."
...living within my escape.
Friday, May 6, 2011


I was thrilled to run into one of the designers of LeBloom last week and got to hear about their grand opening before it happened. Unfortunately I missed that event (doggonit) but am lucky to be able to blog a few of their new pieces here. First and foremost, let me readmit for the millionth time, I am always forgetting about accessories. I don't know why, I've given up trying to be perfect and have all the extra touches, I guess I just like being able to focus on a few things I have on instead of covering it and overdoing it to the point of 'holy moly is there an av under all those prims'. I may be taking it to the opposite extreme of no accessories, though. Still working on that! So when I saw these poses by Frooti I knew it needed a bag, and look at that! Its been so long since I even dealt with my bags that the first thing I landed up and worked was from ETD. ETD! Did I mention I missed Elika while she was gone? Oh, have we noticed the hair...thats right, ahhh its good stuff.

The outfit is, of course, all LeBloom. White tank under a blue jacket with an awesome pair of jeans. The jacket has prims for the bottom, which I normally cringe about but these are very well made, even with my ao (that is a huge shock, I must have the most sculpty unfriendly ao ever) and I love it!


This picture, well, I don't have a clue whats going on with my shoulders above here, they arent massively wide I swear. Can I blame my graphics card? No, thats for the jagged lines that people like to make comments about. Can I blame the pose? Hm, I love the poses by Frooti! Lets just blame SL...but the tank is adorable! Since going blonde I am much more willing to put on green, and I think this looks great! Last, below, is my favorite top that I have from LeBloom, so far. I love the color and the design both, and again am so glad to see a new team coming out and designing for us this summer. Add them to my list of 'will most likely blog about often' and I cant wait to see what they bring us!!


I may be a couple of days behind everyone else showing how I love the new Belleza skin coming out, but like many I will be adding it to my folder of skins as soon as its out. Without having to change a thing in my shape to love how it looks is always a perk for me, so I am off to sit on their steps and wait, patiently.

As per normal GI style, my own rambling time...life is good, amazingly good right now. Spring is slowly getting here in RL and we are doing that ever so fun spring cleaning. Doing the same thing with my inventory in SL, still!! Keeping it under 60k at least, thats a step! So much more to be gone through and gotten rid of. Am I really going to wear all of this ever again? Being realistic about this sort of thing is tough for a born pack rat.

Have had a lot of time to go in and play lately since EQ2 has been down. Fighting the 'bored out of my mind' moments when I would usually be off raiding has been tough, but we have always found something wickedly fun to do. Tonight should be awesome as well, the weekend yay! I hope everyone has had a great week, start your weekend over at LeBloom!

Grand Illusion...
...behind the mask!

Grand Illusion, to me, is a great many things. A place to share my adventures within the grandest illusion I know, Second Life. Exploration, friends and loved ones and best of all, fashion and the addiction that is, shopping! I often spend most of my time in SL working these days, but I still find time for the fashion, for decorating and landscaping and the pure obsessive nature of it all.
