Agent Provocative

 

For the 50 Shades of Sexy challenge I decided to go for the Underworld agent feel of the bad ass Selene and her sidekick Michael to emulate “Agent Provocative” (yes I have fallen behind!)

agent dupu

Gopu and I headed to the dark sim of Midian and aimlessly wandered around searching for victims…. I mean Lycans. Don’t worry none were to be found and we basically played a game of 007 meets Charlies Angles… yeah corny…. I know…. but that is how we roll!

Duchess as an Angel

And that’s kicking your ass! (Quote- Dylan: Charlies Angles)

I am adding this picture to show you the incredible detail that Chandra adds to her Burlesque outfits. I adore the bustle on this outfit! The details and the beautiful realistic textures make for striking apparel. So much love is put into every deviousMind creation…. I guess this is why Chandra is one of my favorite designers and in my opinion one of the best burlesque designers on Second Life.

Spring Smiles

March 10, 2013 at 5:50 pm (iheartslFeed, Pre-Release Event, Second Life Events, SecondLife Music & Fashion) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

SMILE

Ten more days and my favorite season, Spring, begins!! I was giddy with excitement to “Spring forward” today! Just the word “spring” brings a smile to my face! And what better way to celebrate the beginning of the ten day count-down to warm sun rays and cool breezes than shopping at the Pre-Release Event and a visit to Kaelyn’s SIM, It all starts with a smile.

Ice Cream

A stroll around It all starts with a smile with your significant other is as adorable as the Maisy Mesh dress from D&G Fashions I am wearing! I love the length of this skirt and the way it hangs as my avatar struts her stuff. This dress comes in blue as well and goes perfectly with my color changing Redgrave shoes! Since all the items at the Pre-Release event are 125L or less…. yep… get both!

Spring Smiles2

The SIM is tastefully decorated with the most beautiful prim objects…. a true photographers dream! Kaelyn thought of everything…. from lovers sharing ice cream, to lazy day cuddles in the spring flowers, boats, campers, clubhouses…. to so many interactive nooks and crannies one could never get bored!

Field

Gopu and I spent a lot of time laying around in the tall grass watching the clouds. Our fashionably trendy Spring eyes are another score that can be found at the Pre-Release Event! I am wearing a set called Flower Power and Gopu is wearing Wild Eyes, both sets of eyes are from Noise and look amazing in different WL settings. I suggest getting a pair a giving it a try!

Gopu

We watched the sun fall beneath the waves a top a camper decked out with cool fabrics and of course…. more poses! I really like the facial piercings by Phoebe that is Gopu is wearing…. I may see if I can drag him to get it done in RL.

SpringPark

After a long day enjoying the pre-spring weather of “It all starts with a smile” we headed back to our SIM to continue building dreams….. Definitely check out this SIM and have your camera ready for some totally “awwww” moments! I found myself wishing I could rez pose balls, however if it were a possibility I would probably never leave! Also be sure to check out the Pre-Release event, there is a little over a week left to grab some great deals from some amazing designers!

The Intoxicated Pirates of the Not So Caribbean

March 2, 2013 at 5:46 pm (Blogger Challenge, iheartslFeed, SecondLife Music & Fashion) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

Pirate Duchess

The vast ocean called and we hit the sea and headed off to the place where our hearts longed to be… white sand, rum and music filled breezes. Intoxicating! Jacques Cousteau was dead on when he said, “the sea…. once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever.” Ah the pirates life for me!

Railing Closer

A woman knows the face of the man she loves as a sailor knows the open sea.

~ Honore de Balzac ~

On a recent trip to Cog & Grog Freebies, an entire shop filled with all the pirate loot you could fathom, I got a little carried away and ended up with a fleet of the most beautiful pirate ships! Cog and Grog shares all the creations used for the construction of Freeport Township of Flotsam at this tiny shop. The items are full perm, free and fun! Thanks Aley, Arcadia and Briony! If you happen to plunder their wares be sure to give some love to the tip jar!

gopu Duchess PirateWheel

My pirate treasures became my inspiration for the “50 Shades of Sexy” challenge this week with a very appropriate theme of “Intoxicate Me.” Not all treasure is silver and gold….. Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum!!

Titanic

Not just the Spanish Main, love. The entire ocean. The entire wo’ld. Wherever we want to go, we’ll go. That’s what a ship is, you know. It’s not just a keel and a hull and a deck and sails,

that’s what a ship needs but what a ship is… what it is… is freedom. 

~ Capt. Gopu Aulder ~

Blacklace’s new lingerie set, Rousing, was the perfect attire for my intoxicatingly sexy self. The chocolate color gave a sense of time that I offset with an adorable vintage necklace from League that actually works! In keeping with my Cog & Grog mindset I chose a pair of Victorian granny heeled shoes from Grim Bros. (Any excuse to shop at Grim is a good excuse!) And topping it all off is hair by D!va that is absolutely perfect in every way (and free!!! wth!) Marisa is quickly becoming one of my favorite SL hair designers of all times!

Arrr Mateys! Until we meet again!!! Happy Shopping!

Wonderland

February 24, 2013 at 11:12 pm (iheartslFeed, SecondLife Music & Fashion) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

No time to say hello, good-bye, I'm late, I'm late, I'm late

Gopu and I headed off last night to Two Moon Paradise’s Alice Venue to catch the smooth tunes of one of our favorite live performers, Maxmillion Kleene! In keeping with the theme of the evening we dressed in our most mellowy mushroomesque Wonderland attire. I was the ever adorable Alice and Gopu wore the very fitting Mad Hatter role. First I want to say I adore this LeLutka hair! The hair flows so beautifully in-world and it barely had to be edited for the photos…if at all! You can wear the hair with or without the ribbon and the ribbon is equipped with a spiffy color changer! I will definitely wear this hair again and again…. on Alice-days and on not-so-Alice days!  Also, the Alice dress by Deviance has to be one of the nicest Wonderland outfits on the grid! If you are looking for an Alice in Wonderland outfit, look no further…. my leg work was exhausting but the result was sublime!

Alice on the Mushroom

“It was much pleasanter at home,” thought poor Alice, “when one wasn’t always growing larger and smaller, and being ordered about by mice and rabbits.

I almost wish I hadn’t gone down the rabbit-hole–and yet–and yet–…” 

Since we had some time before the show we went to two older SIMS that are both at the top of our list of favs and rode (well… walked b/c we couldn’t get the gondola to rez! LOL!) the Alice in Wonderland Dark Ride (Black Pearl Beach) and reminisced at Steelhead Nevermoor.

Cheshire Cat

But I don’t want to go among mad people,” I remarked.

“Oh, you can’t help that,” said the giant Cat: “we’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad. Gopu’s mad.”

“How do you know we’re mad?” I asked.
“You must be,” said the Cat as he reached down and swatted Gopu, “or you wouldn’t have come here.”

Alice and Mad Mushrooms

 Everything’s got moral. If only you can find it.
-Duchess”

(Also of note. The items for sale at Two Moon Paradise’s Alice Venue have nothing to do with Gopu and neither Gopu nor I are affiliated in any way with Bampu Legacies, despite what the crazy old lady has written on her profile and blog. She has been asked repeatedly to remove his name as her business partner, but she refuses. We are not real life friends with this woman and never have been, nor are we current friends. Please do not purchase these items under the false pretense that they are our creations, they are not.  Thanks!)

Bad Romance lyrics by Lady Gaga

Walk, walk, fashion, baby
Work it, move that thing, crazy
Walk, walk, passion, baby
Work it, I’m a freak, baby

 

We built the set of Lady Gaga’s Bad Romance video for this weeks 50 Shades of Sexy challenge. The excerpt of the song above is during the time this scene is shown. Creating the set was actually a lot of fun! I may have to keep it up for a few more days and keep playing around with the space and the interesting lighting in the white room. Yeah… lighting  *smirk*

I want your love, and I want your revenge
I want your love, I don’t wanna be friends
 J’ai ton amour et je veux ton revenge
 J’ai ton amour, I don’t wanna be friends

Here is the still from the video I emulated:

And a little close up of the lingerie:

I want your love, and I want your revenge
You and me could write a bad romance
I want your love, and all your love is revenge
You and me could write a bad romance

Love Potion Number 9.9

February 17, 2013 at 8:20 am (Holiday Posts, Love Potion No. 9.9, Second Life Hunts) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

Keeper of the Loch by Duchess Flux

The MadPea Love Potion No. 9.9 hunt followed a fantasy theme that I adored! This time around the event was not as taxing on the brain and we found ourselves playing a lot along the way. Above I am playing the Keeper of the Sacred MadPea Loch… in the words of Shakespeare….

“Though she be but little, she is fierce!”

 

MadPea Fairies
“Now a soft kiss — Aye, by that kiss, I vow an endless bliss.” – John Keats

 Take some time to stop and smell the roses and peer behind places for some really creative and fun interactive items. The hunt ends in March so get your hud on! Check out MadPea Productions on Facebook as well.

Fae Library

“What lies behind us, and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Gopu patiently waits as I alphabetize the library and stack books according to my fae-ncy.

Cupid Remains

“Life is a flower of which love is the honey.” – Victor Hugo

Cupid appeared to meet an untimely death and appears in the background shot with arrows….. Since I refuse to let love die….. this is “Cupid Rising.”

Cupid Rising

“I almost wish we were butterflies and liv’d but three summer days – three such days with you I could fill with more delight than fifty common years could ever contain.” – John Keats

There is plenty of magical scenery so get your groove on and your snapshot thingy loaded! Be sure to share your images with MadPea!

Sexual Healing

February 15, 2013 at 11:17 am (Blogger Challenge, Holiday Posts) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

Fairy Duchess and Gopu

I love the creative poses by Del May and decided to grab this one and create an image for the Sexual Healing theme for 50 Shades of Sexy. Del has the amazing ability to portray sensuality in static poses, especially the couples poses. The image seemed to create itself and the scenery became more and more fantasy like as the shoot continued.

Duchess and Gopu

The story I told myself was of a damsel fairy in distress who is saved by a darker minotaurish creature in a dark and eerie forest. His sexual powers heals her much like the healing powers of a succubus and she is forever his…… a delicate fairy in the protective hands of her hero. Ah yes… the stuff daytime TV lacks….

Fairy Duchess

The Love Always Necklace set was a Valentine’s Day gift from Gopu. The gift came with a proposal and a beautiful poem that matched my real life Valentine’s Day. We have grown so much since high school and twenty years later we are still the perfect fit… I couldn’t ask for a more splendid Valentine. Gopu… you complete me…. thank you for being my heart, soul and best friend. ❤

Getting ready for Mardi Gras @ Runway Cafe with Devious Mind!

 

This image reminds me of photos I took for a series I created at Mardi Gras in New Orleans a few years ago. I focused mainly on the crowd and the people wearing beautiful costumes with all the feathery and glittery splendor that could possibly be mustered. A decisive moment….. capturing the feel of street level Mardi Gras! Toss some beads my way!
