Fashion Tile: I got Love



I made a garden on the side of my cottage on Second Life complete with tulips and even a carrot patch on the porch, it is very cute and makes my home even more cosy so had to take a pic.

雨流儀: Yakuza fashionista



It is Summer in the Northern hemisphere and I am thinking of warmer climate, bright colours and not much layers of clothes to be worn. It has also randomly inspired me to make a trio of new outfits on Polyvore for my Yakuza fictional character- Ame Hayato. Still going with her signature colours of pink and black and keeping to her face claim that is HyunA, I hope you like the LOTD.

Made over the course of this week, these are the three styles I have created;
Tres Chic by lucilxlu featuring a chain necklace
Tres Chic: Morning coffee run for herself before she starts her day in any of the fashion capitals of the world, originally I was going to have a black skirt to go with the feminine pink blouse but after seeing these fringed shorts from Farfetch, I decided that they were definitely more Ame’s style especially when paired with the Barbie heels by Charlotte Olympia. I have a couple of favourite items in this LOTD, the unicorn bag from Angelic Pretty, I have always wanted to have an accessory from this Japanese lolita store but its has always been too expensive to buy online, the perfume inspired by Beauty and the Beast is another addition I fave and the unicorn make-up brushes.

Hot Summer by lucilxlu featuring wall art
Hot Summer: Her make-up palette here is all rainbow! I can definitely see Ame attending a pride week parade whether it is back home in Shibuya during Rainbow week or going overseas to the foreign countries and watching them in either LA or Rome. Also with the rise of temperatures as the northern hemisphere heads towards the middle of its Summer, Ame be keeping cool in this crochet halter top. The denim skirt with pearl accessories was a favourite addition of mine to add in as well as the sushi plushies in the bottom right corner.

All rose by lucilxlu featuring a paco rabanne perfume
All Rose: Out of the 3 new outfits I made for Ame, this was the first one I created and it started from finding the pink cupcake top on another style on Polyvore. Going with a very elegant and feminine look, the telephone bag by Betsey Johnson and illustration of the wine bottles gives a very Parisian feel to this LOTD. The make-up collection she wears are all by Chanel, normally I do not go with this designer but the make-up was too cute and went well in this style. My favourite adds are the King and queen bracelet by Alexander McQueen, the silver dragon claws because a Yakuza’s daughter still needs ‘weaponry’ and the heels by Betsey Johnson of course.

雨流儀: Always Skirts



I made a couple of new sets but the theme going on with the below three is that they all have black skirts whether latex, polyester or nylon, skirts are an essential part of Ame Hayato’s wardrobe. Still keeping with her trademark colours of course and two of these LOTD are part of the arcs that occured in her chronicles.

The three chosen outfits are listed below
Ginza night by lucilxlu featuring wall home decor
Sushi Sakura: My latest LOTD, I literally made it this morning while at work (we are very quiet today) I am not sure where I will put this outfit whether in an upcoming arc post Prague and Cartel or a random side story for Ame. This entire outfit is what the youngest Yakuza is all about. Cute and sexy rolled into a single outfit with themes of sushi, cherry blossom and cats. I think my favourite items are the sushi earrings and badge attached to her top.

Tea Party by lucilxlu featuring gold wall art
Tea Party: Between the Cartel and Venice arcs, Ame is back in London doing some serious investigation and hunting for the killer (spoiler alert again and won’t say anymore!) and has a visit to the underground syndicate and catch up with the members of the Joyce family and Richardson gang. It is through intel and her alliance with these two London clans that Ame is given information of the whereabouts of the killer. This outfit is slightly more covered up than her other outfits, though the skirt is still miniscule. She is wearing pearls and gold to match with the high end scene of London.

Hospital visit by lucilxlu featuring a moisturizing lipstick
Hospital Visit: Beginning of the Cartel arc that I started writing up, Ame returns to Tokyo swiftly from Prague after finding out one of her family members have been attacked. I won’t say who just keep reading the chronicles, though at this rate I am posting each short story in this blog, you will all probably won’t read it until the new year. The cute bag is by Dolls kills and she is wearing restrained clothing that acts as a physical shield for her tender emotions at this moment.

Fashion Tile: Cherry Bomb



Combining a ‘Rewind’ centred post with a classic rock tune of that same era! New LOTD for you all! It is bright, it is random, it is very PINK and very me 😀

雨流儀: Colourful Closet



Though her chronicles are currently quiet (on hold in writing the next arc) I had an inspired moment this past week and made completely new looks for Ame and keeping with her colour themes of pink and black. The person that I use as my face claim for Ame is Kpop idol HyunA and lately her hair has gone bright red/orange being part of the musical unit Triple H, that gives ideas for future looks for my character 😛

Featured below are the three new looks made through Polyvore;
Elegant adventure by lucilxlu featuring a high heeled footwear
Elegant Adventure: Ame is a renowned traveller, seen at the high end shopping events around the world or within the underground network causing up a stir with the other gang families. But unless she is trying to appeal to the opposite sex, she does it with style. New York city is a favourite haunt of hers and she visits the U.S frequently to catch up with friends or go to events in the Big Apple. The tea with mini ice-cream cookies was a favourite addition to this LOTD but the bracelet itself is well over 1k is gorgeous.

Worldly by lucilxlu featuring whimsical home decor
Worldly: Again going back to the theme of being a traveller but floating between Milan and Tokyo in the recent arcs to come (you will find out why when I get to posting her chronicles again) this LOTD is cute with the undertones of being a Yakuza through representation of her weaponry. Carrying her trademark katana as well as throwing knives, she always is careful when going from Yakzua territory into Italian mafia land. The choker and pumps are both by Betsey Johnson continuing with her eccentric style but the most expensive item here are in fact the leather bracelets by Givenchy.

Feminine touch by lucilxlu featuring wall home decor
Feminine Touch: Staying in her home city and still look fabulous is what Ame does best, though she hardly flaunts her expensive attire unless attenting a function, the Yakuza still loves to be bold in her choice of clothing. The boots are one of my favourite adds to this LOTD but the Moschino bag as well with sticking to her colour scheme of pink and black. Normally in Tokyo, Ame would go outlandish and stick out even in the Harajuku crowds but when she gets older she slightly tones it down. But only just.

IMVU: Always Decorating/Styling



It is universally acknowledged that I, Luci Lu/Lucil love toshop in whatever world I am part of, whether it be reality, IMVU or Second Life

As I am seeing less pink and the cutesy sector of SL is dying down I am finding myself reverting back to IMVU in both adding more items to my New York apartment or creating new looks. My closet on IMVU closet is far bigger than my Second Life inventory but that is because I have been on that program much longer.

The layout of IMVU is user friendly as you can see each item before you put it on, you save outfits because you enjoy it not because it is a necessity to remember everything you are wearing.
 
Take for example these two random outfits above, the first one taken last month in one of my old plushie-filled peach rooms, I was going for cute but at the same time being shady with both the ‘savage’ necklace and the ‘anti-fuck boys’ spray can. It was originally stemmed from an inside joke with the friendship group and became part of the outfit.

The second outfit was made two days ago when bored and online, the top was new and I was pondering what to pair it with until I found the sprinkles on the cheekbones that matched the pink and fluffy skater skirt.

However if I am not putting together outfits, then I am either wishlisting or spontaneous buying items from the IMVU catalog to be added to my New york city apartment (like this apartment needs anymore details) however I did do slight changes in the bedroom on the second floor. I changed the neon signs with lip decals and swapped the stuffies for a suggestive cushion. It got a rise out of my friendship group when I pointed it out to the girls.

I also made a second bedroom which is definitely smaller and more private than the main apartment, still sticking to my theme of being very pink and girly

Fashion Tile: Do it Like that



Doing something different when it comes to the layout of my LOTD, normally I have three seperature pictures underneath the accessories but decided for this style to make it one collage. Taken outside my cottage 😀

雨流儀: Staying cute



Returning to pink and black outfits and none of these are part of Ame’s story arcs featured in her chronicles. These were all made recently on Polyvore when I had a random creative spike. The three outfits were inspired by places I have seen and wish to go there myself or wanting to have certain actors and actresses to be part of my chronicles dream cast.

Below are the three selected outfits for this week;
Valentines Day by lucilxlu featuring high heel sandals
Valentines Day: Made on the 14th February, I was in a mush mood and was also in the middle of writing up the future stories for the Osvaldo Arc, this particular V-day is when Ame is back with her Italian mafia Jacen and they have gone to Paris for a weekend away. The above LOTD isn’t so much a dinner date but it could be during the day when Ame is out shopping at her favourite designer stores. She is subtlely armed in this look wearing her usual garter knives. My favourite accessory is the Gucci embroidered clutch.

Senpai by lucilxlu featuring a wine flask
Senpai in NYC: Ame stayed in New York city when she was hiding from the Russian Mafia Oleysa Zima, but has returned to the Big Apple on multiple occasions, she even has a permanent apartment in Park avenue. One of her connections through the London syndicate is a professor at New York university and rumour is that she is a crazy scientist. If in New York City, Ame will visit the professor to catch up as well as get any details on her latest creations. This LOTD is fun, feminine and eccentric, my favourite pieces is the egg purse and egg hair pins.

Streets by lucilxlu featuring set of makeup brushes
Rose Streets: I have shared so many outfits of Ame back home in the streets of Tokyo that I am certain everyone who follows her stories and fashion know what her looks are. Much more casual in the presence of friendships though still designer like her older sister Meiakane. Ame while in her home country always goes all out when it comes to her attire, she blends in with the Shinjuku and Harajuku crowds especially at night when the shops are open until late. My favourite accessories on this LOTD is the Kate Spade ‘Hello Tokyo’ cat bag and the badges/pins on her skirt.

雨流儀: Next Collection



I am fussing over my next Second Life fashion tile so decided to fill in the gap of the usual pixel LOTD I am going to share a couple more sets for Ame that are published on Polyvore, again mixing her theme of flirty, elegant, edgy or cute with the usual colours of pink and black.

The three LOTD are listed below
Rebel night by lucilxlu featuring photographic wall art
Rebel Night: Not featured in any of the storylines but just a fun and risque outfit that is typical of Ame, she is home in Tokyo and taken to the streets to hang out with her group of girl friends. Mingling with the other Yakuza children in the usual districts of Harajuku, Ginza, Shinjuku especially at night and Shibuya. Accessories and armed heavily but the outfit itself is barely there and her main piece is the Christian Louboutin boots that go with her lip lacquer and new perfume also same brand.
Viva Las Vegas by lucilxlu featuring home wall decor
Viva Las Vegas: Haven’t decided which arc to put this outfit into perhaps post Cartel but I have no doubt that Ame would go to Sin city while in Los Angeles, this city is a paradise for all the gangs. Her outfit would be glitter and sparkle wearing designer/couture but I absolutely adore these gold shoes they match the gold glitter. Also having subtle weaponry such as her shuriken.
Tokyo Drift by lucilxlu featuring leather gloves
Tokyo Drift: Post Cartel arc, Ame is in mourning (for reasons yet to be disclosed and I will not tell because spoilers :P) and she has returned home to Tokyo, to take her mind off the previous events she is partaking in the street racing that goes on late at night while also finding herself fights to get involved in. Leather gloves are a must when driving in her pink lambo and I wanted her to at least own Harley Quinn’s boots from the movie Suicide Squad. Food is also featured being yet another chocolate milkshake and sushi! Throwing knives and one of her katanas will be her weaponry (she gets a second katana during Cartel arc).
