Second Life: Simplicity



Fashion tile inspiration is minimal lately as I have been saving up my money for the Europe trip, flying out in two days! Can’t believe it is finally here 😀 But I still take random photos and they are of the pink variation. Sharing four of them here for you all to check out.

This was a random outfit I created on the day, it was after I had done my complete shopping at The Crystal Heart festival and one of my dear friends Misa had created Catwa eyelashes and sent them to me as a gift. I am wearing one of them in the photo above, plus it was a cute outfit complete with holding Artemis in my arms 😛


This outfit was made just today and taken inside the photobooth at The Sugar Garden main store. Decided to attach its details since it is my latest outfit. I have been making so many outside my usual colour scheme of pink so returning to it today.

Top is from The Crystal Heart and the pose is made by Lyriqz Xue, he is going all bento and though majority of his poses are showing the rude fingers he has been making adorable poses including the above. His marketplace store is called Reve Obscura. Taken in the safety of my cottage with a pink windlighting. The sunglasses are by Imeka and hair by Truth.


The final photo is a bit of a nip tease with the bra made by Vision for the new subscription box catering to those of the lifestyle: Bound, I decided to get it after seeing other bloggers share the items on their pages. The Pusheen is from another subscription box that unfortunately has been cancelled due to the maker being dodgy in their transcations. Such a shame too because the designers that released items into that box were always so cute and magic girl. Taken on my home sim but the background is one of Astralia’s designs.

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.

Fashion Tile: Get Jinxed



My first Crystal Heart Festival LOTD was going to be related to Sailor Moon, but then I decided to change it up and go with Puella Magi Madoka Magica instead 😛

雨流儀: Sweet and Sexy



It’s halfway through Summer in the northern hemisphere and I got inspired to make casual but still cute Summer outfits for Ame. They are all going with the theme of pink and denim and she is either back home in Tokyo or across the Pacific and in Los Angeles.

The three new LOTD that I have made for Ame are listed below;
Summer bliss by lucilxlu featuring a pineapple tumbler
Summer Bliss: Having been to Santa Monica myself about two years ago, it is the perfect, picturesque place for Summer. Having a mini carnival with ferris wheel on the wharf alongside the beach where a lot of locals catch the waves, I found it ideal for Ame to go there and take a break from being in the high end cities and constantly shopping. Because of it, this is a cute but much more simpler outfit compared to her other looks of the day. The only designer item she has in this look are the pink Jimmy Choo’s.

Casual princess by lucilxlu featuring wall home decor
Casual Princess: I’ve seen HyunA wear pastel pink before for a music video and she looked absolutely adorable in it, this is another relaxed LOTD for Ame when she is back home in Tokyo, the most expensive item here is the pin! It is made by Christian Lacroix, the other expensive item is the denim scalloped skirt, one of Valentino’s works. Overall I was going for cute and very girly including the Hello Kitty iphone cover, the strawberry bag, Hello kitty nail polish and unicorn plushie, Ame is in her home country so as always she goes all out when it comes to her accessories.

Harajuku by lucilxlu featuring red jewelry
Harajuku: Lots of bright colours and random additions to this LOTD, it was also a lot of fun to make and the first one I made out of the three featured in this post. The Marques’ Almeida wrap skirt, Alberta Ferreti tied belt and Aquazurra sandals were the expensive clothes in this colourful outfit but other than that, Ame is going for bright and happy to blend in with the people within the Harajuku district. This is an outfit that the Yakuza would wear when going to one of the monster cafes or shopping for unique accessories, she often hangs out here with her group of girls usually after a family mission.

Fashion Tile: Not Today



I think the struggle with this new LOTD wasn’t the outfit itself, but finding music! After much browsing through metal, soundtracks, instrumental, electronica, 90s, I’ve gone with Kpop remix and this is LIT! Pictures taken in my cottage

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 😀
