Sometimes you find a great outfit in Second Life that you wan”Shirley” dress by !gO! at the Shiny Shabby round that opened today.  I generally love Gocha Merlin’s creations and this dress is no exception. It has an 1920’s vibe and the fit for my Maitreya body worked perfectly.  The texture is great and the bow is just perfect.

I decided it would be a great item to blog so I had to think of a good location.  I remembered that I had recently seen  that Jogi Schultz of Schultz Bros. had been building a early 20th century New York City for roleplay – and off I headed to the 1920’s New York Project.  Based upon the website, I knew that the project had recently been moved over to a full sim so I wanted to check it out.  The build is looking great even though it is still ‘in progress’.  It is definitely a scene that lends to an active role play story and adventure.

Initially you land in a train or subway station which looks great and provides the necessary information. As you ascent up the stairs, you will see a ticket booth attendant patiently ready to serve.  You then have the choice to teleport down to the project.  The build has an elevated railway, some great shops that are perfect for the era, a night club, coffee houses, cafes and a ballroom.  There is a waterfront with a park where you can just relax and visit with a passerby.  The textures are realistic and the architecture is quite true to life as well.

If you choose to visit, please note that you do have to be dressed appropriately for the era and if you haven’t had a chance to pick up this awesome dress by !gO!, you will find freebies at the entry point.

“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity and an understanding of life that fills them with compassions, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.”      Elizabeth Kubler-Ross

.. kiss me ..

How did it happen that their lips came together?
How does it happen that birds sing, that snow melts,
that the rose unfolds, that the dawn whitens behind
the stark shapes of trees on the quivering summit of the hill?
A kiss, and all was said.

Kiss Me, Baby” is the gacha set created by Kraftwork for this round of Lost & Found that opens today (1/21/17).  Such a cute set including this awesome rare kissing booth!  It has 8 animations for a couple plus a sequence. The animations didn’t require much adjustment for my m-alt and me other than height. The details on the booth are just so cute and perfect for Valentine’s pics.  (and yes, I had fun with this!)

A kiss is a lovely trick designed by nature
to stop speech when words become superfluous.

Another item in the gacha selection from Kraftwork is a wearable kissing booth that is quite cute and humorous. This one has the wearer asking/begging for a kiss but the target showing disinterest. Such fun!

The remaining creations in this great set include a neon sign, wall art, a chair, a mailbox… all centered around the subject of the holiday – LOVE.  ♥
