Phasing Out

It’s almost time. Do the last supply runs, double-check the charts, calibrate the portal. Make sure not to forget anything behind, not a single thing of value, not even a stray circuit.

silverscreen2dsThe portals are opening all over, the slower ships have already flown off, the time machines rolled back — or forward — just the ones who have either the tech or the innate ability to teleport have stayed.

silverscreen1dsFuturewave has 34 standard time units left before it phases out. Enjoy its last moments and make sure you don’t kick yourself later for forgetting the repairs-upgrades you wanted all along.

If you haven’t yet visited Futurewave, we’re approaching the last day fast. The event will close on Sunday 23rd at midnight SLT, but worry not: we will return next year! As for repairs-upgrades in this post there’s the dress by Zibska, boots by GALLACTIC, necklace, collar and background orrery by Spyralle, poses by {NanTra} and eyes from ~*By Snow*~ that are all available in Futurewave.

For some avatars that’s what makes them tick. No hearts, no blood, no squishy inconvenient organs, just perfectly manufactured and set up circuitry running the human-replica interface. The ability to come to logical conclusions faster than humans comes with the price of incomplete social abilities, the rules of human interaction always so subconscious context dependant. Thus the awkward wave.

Circuitry 1The latex-covered body never needs nourishment nor exercise, simply visits to the maintenance check every now and then. It can even be wrapped in clothing to further mimic humans, although one should still take pride in one’s obvious superiority to the organic matter based lifeforms and reveal one’s circuits for the admiration of others. If one knew how to feel pride, that is.

Circuitry 2Both type of outfits, Sheer and Split Circuits are new releases by GALLACTIC. They come in ridiculous amount of colours to fit any sort of cyber-adventurer out there and are so luscious it could make an android weep. Or at least wish they could.

52 Colours: Feldgrau

Feldgrau, field grey, is usually associated with military uniforms. It’s very dull green, almost grey as the name states and I had trouble finding it in my inventory, especially since I wanted to keep some sort of nod toward military. …yes, it’s a corset. I said a nod, not actual accuracy of any sort!

I tinted the blonde parts of this bob by LaViere to feldgrau, just to have more of the colour in the picture than just some parts of the SAKIDE mesh corset. It was a part of a hunt prize a while ago and I don’t actually know if they have it for sale or not, but it was perfect for this. Speaking of perfect, the surroundings are Kaaos Das Boot U-Boat, which was also a hunt prize from MadPea at some point, I believe.

When I was going through my makeup folder, I wanted to go for that night-time look, even if Eddie Izzard calls it a bit of a slapdash. Combining three different tattoo layers did the trick, I think our U-boat captain looks perfectly believable. In an anime film, mayhaps.

Nephilim, Take Two

Nomine has released the male versions of the Nephilim skin line! Blogging male skins was obviously somewhat a challenge, so after I had made a male shape and had some shirtless fun, I photoshopped Sonya in to hold his hand. Sort of.

These are the skins for all the creatures of the night, whether you’re alive or something less so or just prefer the pale, more eccentric look. More info, makeup, beard and scar options can be found here. Demos can obviously be found in Nomine, so slink over and give them a go!

52 Colours: Aqua Island

Miss Aqua Island turned out to be a somewhat quirky-artsy summer girl with just a touch of vintage. The colour itself is paler-than-aqua blue-grey pastel that I had trouble nailing down from my inventory, so I turned to The Sea Hole to rescue. Once I located this cutesy romper, the character concept was pretty much clear.

I went to pose about in Ely’s sim, since her talents cover more than just pretty pictures: her landscaping is always ridiculously gorgeous. Absolutely perfect for summer pictures for someone like me, who is more about lakes and forests than beach.

The only thing I brought with me for the pictures was this exquisite Victorian sundial by Dark 7. It’s a new mesh release and there’s sundials also for those with more gothic or steampunk tastes, but this one just begged to go with this look so I used that instead.

I also have to squee about the hair — even when it’s mostly blonde — because finding a new (to me) shop that makes cute bobs is always a wonderful moment. The shop is LaViere and this particular bob is one of their new Hair Fair releases. The accessories are a mix of Zaara, Maxi Gossamer and LaGyo. I am completely addicted to all the big flower things by LaGyo and always delighted to get an excuse to wear any. Like now.
