Getting a hand from Aii

I have been invited to a dark dance this weekend. I wanted something different from the usual demons and vampires who occupy these realms, so I went over to the +Aii Mainstore seeking inspiration. I found inspiration not only for this dance, but for the next six or seven as well...
The interesting parts of this look all come from +Aii. A big thanks to Princess Aii who must also have multiple hands in order to make such a variety of amazing things. If you haven't been to the store lately, it's time for a visit. 

I'm using the Aii Kali mesh arms, which aren't on an AO, but which move because they're rigged to interact with your regular arms. These can be colored to match your skin using the regular edit functions. The Ammy hair, which fits nicely around forehead horns such as the Kintsukuroi Horns, and Midori's Stone implant come in a variety of color choices.

A little bit naughty and very nice

Suicide DollZ ~ May 20-June 1
Today's adventures star a bodysuit and leg warmers from [QE] Designs. If you're into fitness, have the desire to be a ballerina, are feeling a bit demonish, or just like the look, head over the Suicide Dollz event and pick up this set.

The event is subtitled "the darker side of your SL" and features some very nice dark looks. There are lots of tattoos and esoteric makeup and clothing, as we've come to expect from Suicide DollZ. The event runs till June 1.



Criss is a nice knit bodysuit with a hud for 6 colors and 2 metals. She is matched with basic black leg warmers. As with all of the [QE] fatpacks, the colors coordinate to mix and match with other items from the collection. It can be dressed up or down and has great textures!

Egosumaii Kintsukuroi Masks @ NEO Japan

EgosumAii brings some lovely Kintsukuroi* masks to NEO Japan March 31 ~ April 22. You'll find the EgosumAii space close to the landing point in the center ring of shops.
As you move out from the center, you will find many skins, tattoos, clothing and specialty items in a build that will remind you of modern Tokyo. 


These beautiful masks come in Onyx, Silver or Gold with or without colored third eye and with and without tongues.
I am wearing the masks with the Armored Liless Suits from +Aii. The suit comes in gold, silver, gunmetal or onyx and is available @ the +Aii main store in the new items area.
*About Kintsukuroi: The story is told of a bowl that was much loved by a military ruler. One day a servant accidentally dropped the bowl, which broke into five pieces.  Everyone paused, fearing for the young man as the military leader was known to possess a quick,  harsh temper.  Then one of the guests improvised a comic poem about the incident, provoking laughter all around and restoring the leader to good spirits. 

The story goes on to say that instead of the break "…diminishing [the bowl's] appeal, a new sense of its vitality and resilience raised appreciation to even greater heights."  The bowl had become more beautiful for having been broken.  The true life of the bowl "…began the moment it was dropped…"



From that day onward, mended bowls have been used and cherished for generations.  In Japan, cracks in precious bowls are often filled with gold.  The Japanese believe that when something has suffered damage and has a history, it becomes more beautiful.

Wild Woman


Hail to the Wild Woman! That woman who doesn't let societal norms rule her life.
The woman who lives her own truth, loves whomever she loves and speaks the truth even when it isn't convenient. 

The Wild One may be priestess, shaman, warrior, mother or a mixture of all, but whatever role she plays, she is herself. Whenever you feel your power raising from your gut, either in exuberance or in anger, the Wild Woman moves within you. She is your most authentic self. She's that little girl you were before parents, religion or educational institutions convinced you that you shouldn't act that way. Release her and find out who you really are!

Thanks to the designers @ the Ostara's Altar event for helping so many of us express our personal truths. The event ends April 3, so please visit soon!
